Bio and History
Shiny_Rapidash was originally born on Cinnabar Island to a rather unassuming rapidash who had partied too hard while on vacation in Johto. For some time, the ponyta didn't know the identity of her father, until one fateful day when she used Hypnosis on an attacking raticate. Her mother saw the ordeal and immediately recognized the signature egg move, passed to their species only by male stantler.
Eventually, the young ponyta grew bored of the small island, desiring adventure and, more importantly, more space to run. She gained passage to the Kanto mainland on the back of a trustworthy lapras. She wandered long and far, and finally wound up in Saffron City. It was there she discovered the Bullet Train. The vehicle enraged her - it was truly an insult for humans to think they could engineer something superior to pokemon!
Determined to show her worth, the blue-flamed ponyta waited for the train to depart, and ran after it with all her might. When it seemed as if the Bullet Train would leave her behind, she put on another burst of energy, and evolved. Her new, longer legs aiding her, Shiny_Rapidash indeed defeated the train in her imagined race and found herself in Johto.
Shiny_Rapidash now makes her home in Silver Cave, and races the Bullet Train whenever possible. She also loves to explore and battle, but is terrified of being captured by a pokemon collector. On March 21, 2010, she battled and was caught by EliteFour_Koga, and ran away on August 15, 2010.
Currently level 63.
