I really wish they'd given Persian different colors, I really like that pokemon. Also, Mienshao I wish would have kept it's baby form colors. It doesn't look bad evolved, but it's too close to it's original colors for me.

edit - Mienfoo is the secret hunt, isnt it? :p

^ i can tell u no to that she said its final form she doesnt like she wish it had stayed the same ponyta and rapidash look completely alike XD
Also, it's a Gen 5 Pokemon ;)

I actually think Mienfoo is quite a good guess but I'd need to look through all the Gen 5 pokes before making my own guess...


In any case, finished work for today so eager to boost up my Shiny Ponyta hunt. Still floundering around 1000 eggs....I'll admit I'm pretty bored already, want to get onto the next MM hunt, maybe even RE. Hoping I get a bit of enthusiasm back soon.

"What makes a 'good' shiny?"
Don't even get me started...
I was tired one day and I was on Route 2, and I was apparently looking at my computer screen and not the DS screen when I encountered what seemed to be a regular Pidove. I didn't see the sparkles.
So I ran, and right as I clicked the A button, I said to myself "OH WAIT, IT'S A SHINY!" >_>

I'm gonna go with Tympole as my guess. On the basis that I loved my shiny Tympole but don't like shiny Seismitoad!
Haha, really? I love shiny Seismitoad (really nice colour scheme with the turquoise and gold) but hate Shiny Tympole and Palpitoad (still nice colour scheme but designs are kinda creepy). I wonder what the general consensus is on those pokes, shiny or non-shiny.

I am going to hit this Bulbasaur hunt hardcore for the next few days. I aim to do at least 1,000 SR's a day. This thing will be mine...

I hate to ask, but where did you get your shiny Exeggcute? I wanna try my hand at headbanging for one and what trees have the best chance at dropping them?
Still at it with my hunt, may go for the game corner (which I hate personally, because of Electrode cards). Might SR for either a shiny Abra or Ekans (since I can't encounter it in the wild and I don't have a fast ball for abra if it appears in the grass).

^As long as the pokemon's languages are different to the other pokemon's, then it will work.

An English Metang and a Ditto from a different language game will work, yes, E.G French Ditto and English Metang.
