Raanana is my eighth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3, featuring all the Gen 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 ribbons (bar National Ribbon, only obtainable on Colosseum/XD purified Pokémon). A few years after obtaining Oceania, my Gen 4 Milotic caught a few months after I joined Smogon in 2009, and learning RNG Abuse in Generation 3, I thought it was finally time to get my hands on a shiny Milotic from the Hoenn region, which would have become Oceania’s beloved sister right after the moment I would have captured her. Water-type Pokémon are my favourites and Milotic is my favourite Water-type Pokémon, hence a Ribbon Master Milotic from her game of origin could not be missing from my collection. I checked that a Bold 0 Atk spread was possible and hittable in Pokémon Emerald thanks to the Synchronize mechanics, and RNG abused a square shiny savefile with 00350 as TID, to match Milotic's Pokédex number. Luckily, this spread had multiple encounter slots, and I eventually managed to run into a wild shiny Feebas. After securing her in a Dive Ball, Raanana's ribboning journey finally began! Milotic, in a certain sense, has been my thread mascot throughout the generations and I really wish she will be included in every Gen 8+ Pokémon game. The nickname Raanana (רַעֲנָנָּה) is a Hebrew feminine name, meaning "rebirth". I decided to pick this nickname as Raanana has been trained and ribboned during the challenges that the world is recently facing, marking the desire to start a new, positive and prosperous cycle.
