...then i'm going to try and get a shiny on every route and cave in the game from the beginning to the pokemon league.
It's going to take me a long time but it'll be so worth it if i succeed, even only a partial success would net me quite a shiny haul, so we'll see where it takes me.
That sounds awesome! What a good idea!
If you got that done, it would really be quite an accomplishment! Good luck on your (highly ambitious but really cool) quest!
Also, good luck on Bulbasaur!
