Congratulations! That's quite the impressive record.
You're quite welcome! I'm happy I was able to help. And please don't worry about that.
Oh, okay. I tend to concentrate on different things in my various games too.
Wow! I would imagine you did.
It really does. There's far, far more of it going on now too- as you said, probably because of the widespread availability of PowerSaves. Cloning, PowerSaves, RNG abuse, emulator Pokemon, shiny value hatching... the list just goes on and on. There are more ways to hack in Pokemon now than there are to "create" them legitimately (in-game or through event distributions).
I collected them for a while, but I eventually stopped because of how iffy it was trying to figure out where a certain shiny came from, and whether or not it was legitimate. Now, I'm mostly just collecting things I can obtain on my own.
