    Default Tani's Treasures = Skipping Stones

    Skipping stones. Even the thought gives me a smile - I actually learned to ‘skip’ pool tiles in a diving pool. The tiles were already loose, and the perfect shape (ie, flat!) for skipping.
    Whenever I ran out of pool tiles to skip, I’d dive down to retrieve the tiles.

    “corner to corner, flick o’ the wrist...” I have to admit, I wasn’t very good at it. Never could manage more than 3 or 4 skips.
    Every so often I walk out and look at the Slateport Bay surf and I try to visualize a perfect ‘skip’.

    The other day, to my surprise, I noticed some Kabuto doing a far better job at ‘skipping’ than I had ever managed.
    They were combining Rapid Spin with an arcing Aqua Jet to skim along the water surface at such speed that I hardly even noticed they were pokemon at first!

    The Event

    These Kabuto are all Adamant (+Att -SpAtt) natured, and all have a 31 IV in Speed. Some even have other stats at 31.
    Why Adamant? Because both abilities I have chosen for this event add, in some way, to Speed. The abilities I have chosen for this event are:
    Swift Swim (Speed will double under Rain conditions)
    Weak Armor* (When hit with a Physical attack, Speed stat will be raised, and Defense will be lowered by one stage) (*Weak Armor is Kabuto’s Hidden Ability)

    Please note: I have chosen not to distribute Kabuto’s other regular ability, Battle Armor (immunity to critical hits).

    The Moveset


    Rapid Spin
    Base 20//40pp//100 acc - Eliminates Bind, Wrap, Leech Seed, Spikes and Stealth Rock
    Aqua Jet (STAB) Base 40//20pp//100 acc - Priority water type move
    Rock Slide (STAB) Base 75//10pp//90 acc - Will target both opponents in double battle, also may cause flinching
    Rain Dance -STATUS- 5pp - Causes rain for 5 rounds. Rain makes water moves stronger, and will activate abilities like Hydration and Swift Swim.

    The Pokemon

    I have 35 Kabuto up for adoption. 9 have the ability Swift Swim, and 26 have the “hidden” ability Weak Armor.

    Complete IVs have not been listed, only where 31s occur. The other stats may be anything from 0-30; but the majority of these kabuto have ‘relatively superior’ potential.
    A few are ‘Outstanding’, and some are ‘Above Average’, but something about them stood out.

    Don't forget to pick out a nickname for your Kabuto!

    What is Ms Tani looking for?
    I'm keeping an eye out for female Spooky Mansion (DW) pokemon, but you can trade me anything - even a lillipup/patrat to release for box space

    Hey, can I reserve one for later? I'm staying with family right now and don't have access to wifi at their place, so it'll be about a week before I can trade for it. I'd like wa7 -if- that's all right. No nickname needed.

    Wow! SAA-WEEEEE-TAH! How is it you've had this up for nearly 5 and a half hours and only 2 people have popped in with a request.

    Maggyo requested wa7, so I reserved a different female Kabuto for you.

    Yeah, I hope not; that was really frustrating

    "Skip" is now reserved for you

    With regards to DW ability female Kabuto, I did have a few female weak armor hatchlings that were not Adamant natured; they are not part of this event but you may contact me if you'd like to trade for one.
