Offer: A shiny pokemon:
Use your holiday spirit to guess what shiny pokemon it is, and what its nature is!
Post below what your guess is.
Don’t be loud or else you will go on the naughty list! Instead of filling up the North Pole with guesses, edit your previous post. If you don’t know how, there’s an edit button:
Don’t be greedy! (I dare you to call me a hypocrite). Everyone only gets three guesses per day for the species, and for each of these can have three guesses for the nature. A good example of how to make guesses would be the first reply in this thread.
But Santa! What’s a “day”? A day is when I post another hint as to what the shiny is.
Hint?!?! Yes, I’ll be posting hints to what the shiny is. They will be in Further Info.
Winner is the first person who guesses the species of the shiny, and the nature of the shiny. However, you must be exactly correct. If the shiny was Deino and you guessed Hydreigon, tough luck! No shiny for you. Also, the nature is not necessarily a beneficial nature.
I keep posting hints until someone guesses it!
The first hint is that the shiny is level sixteen.
The shiny is a pokemon that is unobtainable in Gen I main-series games. Examples would be Combusken, as it is only obtainable in Gen III and onwards, and Pawniard, as it is only obtainable in Gen V and onwards. Meowth and Gengar are examples of pokemon ruled out as they are obtainable in Gen 1.
The shiny is part of a three-pokemon evolution family. For example, Trapinch, as it is part of the Trapinch -> Vibrava -> Flygon family. Examples of pokemon ruled out are Oddish, because there are four pokemon in its evolution family, Eevee, because there are nine pokemon in its evolution family, and Druddigon, because there is only one pokemon in its evolution family.
Pokemon who are purely water, grass, dragon, or ground type are ruled out, pokemon who have one of those types are ruled out, pokemon who have two of those types are not ruled out. For example: Servine is ruled out, Krookodile is ruled out, but Kingdra is not ruled out.
The shiny is not acting or speaking sincerely and in earnest, rather than in a joking or halfhearted manner.
The shiny is not displaying or proceeding from a lack of careful consideration of the possible consequences of an action.
The shiny is not showing a lack of experience, wisdom, or judgment.
The shiny is not mild in temperament or behavior; kind or tender.
The shiny is not characterized by peculiar or unexpected traits.
The shiny, a member of the shiny’s evolution family, a mega evolution of a member of the shiny’s evolution family, or a combination of these previous three is banned from RU in competitive play. This means that one or more of the previously listed pokemon is BL2, UU, BL, OU, or Uber.
Examples include Beldum, as it’s evolution Metagross is UU, and Vibrava, as it’s evolution’s mega evolution is Uber. Swadloon is ruled out as all of its evolution line is fair game in RU.

If you are confused about the tier something is in, PM me or ping me on discord.
Also, for you slowpokes, yesterday I ruled out the natures Quirky, Rash, Serious, Gentle, and Naive.
From today forward, due to the number of possibilities for the pokemon dwindling, everyone now gets only TWO guesses to the species and TWO guesses for the nature for each of those species.
