Wow, you're resetting for Lugia, too? A couple of months! Talk about being a pain in the ... uh, neck. I hope it shows off some sparkles soon. Fingers crossed. And yes, I would be happy with seeing some pictures, too. We could support each other while these awful drab normal Lugia keep on harassing us!
I think Lugia will surprise us when it shines. It's hard to sort of know what it will look like "in real life" until you see it, but they usually do look better than you expect them to. I've looked up Lugia on the GTS on XY, and the shiny does look quite nice, but it's not the 4th/5th gen sprite, and it will probably look a lot more vibrant in HGSS than on XY.
Hi there, Shep! Of course I remember you. Long time no see. Thanks for the message. I appreciate it. And thanks for the congrats, too. I must admit that I'm really smitten with Ho-oh, and very happy to have him. ... It probably sounds weird to say smitten, but yeah ... haha. It was something I never thought I would ever have for a long time, many years ago, because I thought that I wouldn't have the patience or strength to attempt to hunt for shiny legendaries. But I've had success and I know I can do it now. My next target is Lugia, so let's see when he decides he wants to join Ho-oh's ranks.
Hey, just passing by to crongratulate you on your lucky row (specially that Audino, its so cute on its shinny sprite)
Also, I noticed you seem to have the japanese version, would you be interested on trading a Ditto or a male from the field egg group? (I wanna try the MM)
