• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

I planned to wait to add them to mine until the sprites are up on the forum, but fair question. Hastily-assembled list follows, again only a rough guideline, just don't go crazy. Alolan forms, I guess, can be handled the same as their non-Alolan forms.

Rare

For convenience's sake, I decided to compile a whole list of the rarities of every single Pokemon. Note that these are more of guidelines and not rules; you could put an Uncommon Pokemon in the Rare category, or vice versa. Same with all the other categories; but please only go one category up or one category down; having, say, a Venusaur as a common Pokemon is not a wise choice. Also, please make your shiny chance at least 1/200; anything more is a bit too plentiful than the norm. Anyway:

COMMONS (Feel free to give out as much of these as you want! They are plentiful and abundant and should make up the majority of your stock.)
