I've been doing great! I have a lovely girlfriend, online relationship though, but it's going pretty well. She loves pokemon too! lol
I've been doing shiny hunting even since I gotten shiny Dratini in my fireRed at the game corner. I've captured 72 shinies, 39 are pokeradar.. others are soft reset and random encounters. I also have my own wi fi, so that I'm able to battle people.
I don't have Platinum, yet.. but hopefully sometime later this week or next week.
