I just saw your VM to Chris, and I wasn't sure if it was recent or not.
I also just saw your post.
Yeah, I know you're meant to feel excited and happy that you got a shiny, but when it's like this it begins to get frustrating. I guess I was right that a shiny was soon to appear, though, wasn't I? :S Just that it was the wrong one. Seriously, how many more of these things can you get before you get something different, even if it isn't a Nidoran?
I hope Nidoran is shiny for you soon, and here's hoping Fearow gains a new evolution in XY so that you can evolve one of them. Adamant is a good nature, though, I guess ...?
Ugh, sorry to hear it.
