Lucky Happenings

Not open for further replies.


What lucky things have happened to you?

Got a modest female Squirtle. Not for competitive, for ingame.

Went into Viridian Forest to capture a Weedle. The first pokemon I found was a bashful Pikachu. Bashful nature does nothing.

Training Pidgey in Mt. Moon to evolve into Pidgeotto. I find a female serious Clefairy right before Pidgey would have evolved (level 17, found a Paras after Clefairy, beat that instead).

So what lucky things have happened to you?

I was in the Safari Zone. I was in Zone 2.. The first pokemon i saw was a Chansey! I throw a ball, butt he almost had her... And then, she doesnt fled! '
I throw an other ball, and this one capture the Chansey! It was a female-Serene Grace(SP?)- Careful.. I want a Bold, so I'm trying to hatch a Bold Chansey!

I got a female charmander. I then found and caught a pidgeotto in VForest. It was great. And 3 out of 7 eevee eggs I hatched were female.

I got a Lapras in the Ice Cave on my fourth encounter with a wild Pokemon. Other than that, I haven't been so lucky.


I've always been able to run into Chansey and Kangaskhan really easily....Tauros, on the other hand, is a different story....


You can catch Lapras in Icefall Cave? You can catch Pidgeotto in Viridian Forest? Why was I not informed?

Also the only lucky thing that's ever happened was me, with two gba sp's at the same time and my fr and lg, one in each, searching for a kangaskan in safari zone. Finding one on each game at the same time and catching them :D


Both my LG and my friend's FR games caught a shiny Doduo in the Safari Zone within the first few times of going into the Safari Zone.



I woke up REALLY early one morning and couldnt fall asleep, so I turned on the gameboy and went hunting in the Safari Zone. I came out with a Taoros, a Kangashkan, a Chansey, and a Dratini. Then I kept on using the VS Seeker until my Pocket was bursting, and then I bought enough coins to buy... Scyther! When I finally fell asleep after some more exploring, my Pokedex changed from 48 Pokemon to 68.

Edit: I went mushroom hunting in Mt.Moon with my Theif Growlithe and came out with 5 tinymushrooms. Oh yeah, and in 2 of the three game I restarted, I got a Clefairy right after defeating the selfish nerd! And I caught them!!


Luckiest thing for me was seeing a shiny male nidoran and capturing it in the safari zone.
The reason I consider this lucky is because a shiny Chansey/Scyther/Dratini/Kangaskahn would have been hard to catch and that would mean a wasted shiny.

Now I have a shiny Nidoking. Woohoo


Hmm...Shining Naughty Female Mankey to the left of Cerulean City (i don't stat train, and since fr/lg doesn't have contests, i just look at natures for what they are, natures) in FR near the beginning of my game. I caught a Shining Male (forgot nature) Geodude in Rock Tunnel :p

*thinks* Shiny luck on every game I ever got that could have shinies is what I had, lol.

My luckiest thing is that I caught a chansey on my first try in the safari zone.

What? That's not good enough? Well... She did have an Exp (Lucky) Egg...
