Well my Lugia hunt took me just under three months, so I obtained them all in between then. Just look at my shiny card and everything between Kyogre and Lugia were found (since I started hunting Lugia the day after I got my Kyogre).
I still love my Lugia to pieces something wicked. I'm so glad he finally shone. >u<
My games must be testing me after giving me such wicked luck with random encounters (I found a total of 7 shinies during my Lugia hunt, so I can't complain. Hehe), but I'd still like it to shine before 10k. c:
Oh don't do that... So many people start that up all massively motivated and then they get to a point shortly after where their motivation is completely burned out. x__x Maybe just hunt down your favourite Steel types? xD
Haha, kinda like me watching a live reaction video to a French hunter and his shiny Lugia. He screams something wicked when he finds it, and the second time watching it, my screams pretty much SYNCHRONISED with his. ;D
Contemplating installing Skype again so I can IM you. Unless you're keen on picking up an msn address? They're mighty useful to chat with shiny hunters. :3
