Thanks! I'm pretty pleased with it, even though it has pretty much the worst nature a Noivern can have (Brave) and the one Ability it could have that I didn't want it to have (Telepathy). Wouldn't be the first time I got a Shiny whose nature screwed it over. My Shiny Weavile? Quiet nature. My Shiny Swellow? Modest nature.
Uh...Audino, Tranquil, Simisage, Musharna, Gigalith, Swadloon, Crustle, Heatmor, Meinfoo, Beheeyem, Klinklang, Scrafty, Maractus, Cinccino, Emolga, Amoonguss, Stunfisk....yeah, I'm missing a few in there somewhere but they're the ones I remember off the top of my head
I started serious hunting around the time BW came out, had about 18 shinies then my file got corrupted. I was pretty shattered so I left hunting for a while. I started getting back into hunting in XY but I thought that if I wanted to be a proper shiny hunter, I'd have to start with the older games again with the original odds so it'd feel right.
Hi. I'm afraid I really can't remember how many files I went through before finding an early shiny frame file in Emerald - I've found quite a few over the years. ^^; I usually change files every 20 or so SR if I don't find a shiny starter/uncatchable shiny Zigzagoon though.
Thanks for the good wishes for Smudge. Sadly her lump did turn out to be cancer (mammary gland cancer to be exact), but apparently we caught it quite early on (lol, I may have ended up saving her life, since I'm the one who noticed it ) But she's had it removed and seems to be doing alright at the moment. We just have to wait and see if it's spread to any other organs or if any more lumps appear...
