Thank you! I originally just set out for a BQ for anything but a Wurmple (as I had one before I started it) but my main target was Murkrow! Though now, I'd like to eventually get both Murkrow and Buneary to complete Diamond's Eterna Forest set. Good luck on that Latios - I'm guessing you're SR'ing for the storyline one (? the one that's not the eon ticket) since you mentioned the long SRs - I hope it shines pretty quickly before the SRs become tedious!
I had a feeling that Kyogre and Groudon are locked (like everyone else), I've only seen on picture of a Shiny Kyogre from Origin Cave but credibility is low on that, since well, photoshop lol. I will try for Latias, though. I've seen multiple pictures of them shiny...just no live vids probably because the SRs are so long. Thanks for answering my question, I know details are still hazy since people are still testing the waters.
Thanks for the inspiration! I can't wait for mine. People reacting always makes me laugh because I'm a much quieter person than most. Where a lot of YT reactions to shiny are shouting and cursing, I just usually gasp and make a weird "Squee!" noise. Picture an overly-excited mouse haha, that's how I react. Although once in the car I yelled "OMG LOOK!" to my little brother and my mom got mad for scaring them (they thought something on the road is what made me shout). That was for my shiny Charmander.
After I finally get a shiny Treecko, I'm planning on experimenting with the Poochyena encounter to see if I get a female. Though I won't try too long since I'll have to go through the whole beginning sequence again.
That's great! I seen a live shiny encounter of Reshiram so looks like everyone will be doing lots of legend SR hunts :3
The person doing the video also mentioned a friend SRing a shiny Azelf... So many hunts haha
Not a problem. He posted on his twitter that he got the shiny, and no video has been posted just yet. Heliotrope was the one who did 27k resets and didn't get a shiny, bet she'll be happy to know they aren't locked . I'm actually on the way through the game to SR for a shiny Reshiram but I have a feeling it'll take a while .
Yeah I know that, its just that ever since I stopped using my JPN ditto my shinies hatch alot faster its remarkable really. I got like in 1 week 5 shinies (not including the random ones which is also around 2 or 3)
Thanks for the congrats! Looks like I'll have to choose between umbreon and sylveon then...he'll by no means be competitive (other IVs were like 3s and others below 15) but I still want him to be the best he can be. Thanks for the advice x
