Hey everybody. I thought I'd let you guys know how my 4th gen hunts are going.
HG: Badge Quest/Lapras - 10,000 SR << finally a HG BQ shiny that's taking a long time to shine. Yay... >.>
SS: Slowpoke - 320 encounters
Platinum: Badge Quest - 1200 encounters
I've also been noticing that my Heart Gold seems to be freezing every now and then. You know how when you SR, the screen goes white for a moment before it reloads - well it's been staying frozen on the white screen and I've had to switch the DS off and take the cartridge out. I sure hope a shiny Lapras wasn't going to appear on one of the times it's frozen... >_<
I saw your Headbutt shiny video! Congrats on the shiny. About the freezing, that might be down to the game card being a little out of place. Or it could be something like dust. I don't know, but check for little bits of dust. It might be that...but don't think I'm correct, it's what I've heard. Good luck on the hunts though!
I'm over 2,550 REs now, and I hope it comes before 3,000. I dread a shiny Abra though >.<
