Haha, wow, you know what's funny? I posted my congrats about your shiny Mudkip before I even read that first visitor message...I was idol when you sent to me.
As for Giratina, I just did tallied my 8056th soft reset. Of course, I've actually done more than that. But I won't say I "deserve" a shiny Giratina until I do 8192 recorded soft resets.
And I really do hope I find Giratina today as well. It'll be a new record of 1/8192 shinies obtained in one month for me.
But man, I still can't believe you finally got shiny Mudkip! Congrats again!
