    I think Y and X do better than all the other games in regard to letting you choose from such a wide variety of Pokemon early. Gone are the days of having to be stuck with a few types till late in the game.

    I have amassed an army of Snorunts.
    85 hatched eggs and not one shiny in the bunch.
    Should I Traderoulette each one to try and Fill the pokedex, or is Mass-Releasing them a possibility? The last few generations, When one had to Release Pokemon they had to do so individually and sit through a "Good-bye" animation. What do you other breeders do when you have Surplus of an otherwise unwanted Pokemon?

    I usually Wonder Trade them. In organize box, there's a green tab that lets you click and drag. I know you can move multiple Pokemon this way, haven't tried it for releasing.

    Anyone have an archipelago, river, or sandstorm vivillon? Last 3 I need before I'm done with collecting every pattern.

    Oh boy, deposited a Vivillon on the GTS, and got an Yveltal. Didn't think anyone would ever trade for it.

    Since your Vivillon is specific to your location, it's much rarer than Yveltal, which is in every single copy of Y. Serious collectors would realize this and jump on it.

    Yup, I got Xerneas, Articuno and Moltres this way. I spent a good 2 weeks doing nothing but collecting the Vivillon patterns and the Sandstorm/IcySnow ones are pretty much gold to collectors.

    They are absolute garbage. :V Most Japanese and europeans get the Meadow Vivilion so putting in the factor of player population>location. Most would have the Meadow Vivilion than rarer ones like Icy Snow or Sandstorm Vivilions.

    I actually have a Monsoon Vivilion on me right now that I gotta put on the GTS on day. :V

    I'm trying to remember, can Move Tutor moves get passed around via eggs?
    Because I'm putting a second team idea together on paper, and it requires two such moves, but I don't feel like going back to 5th gens system for IVs. I've been spoiled.

    Is there any easier way to get rare vivillons other than GTS.
