Welcome to the thread, keldeoboy!
Felt pretty ill last night and so got into bed - sucked because I could've had the whole night quad hunting at my desk, but I'm off school today so I'm catching up. Currently sitting at 35,644 encounters - really wishing for something nice to shine! Murkrow is my top priority, because if I get that then I can continue with my diamond BQ and then pick up the other 3 I want on Pearl.
Good luck everyone, especially Lorde with Rayquaza and Mudkip, CpChris with Scyther, Shadowkrow with your BQ, pokemaster13 with Weedle and Chimchar, Tina with Archen, AquaRegisteel with your FEs, Shy with Mudkip, Cyberra with Virizion, jrmftw with Sprout Tower, Razorbadger with Six Island and RaichuArcanine and cocoadragon with your Chimchars!
EDIT: NEVERMIND THAT! I'm so excited at the moment! After 36,336 encounters in Eterna Forest, my Pearl game gave me a shiny Budew! Female as well, I named her Glasshouse. Found alongside a Cascoon and I'm so glad that she shone instead! This is my longest hunt to date so I'm really happy to have it over and done with. Took me 3 pokeballs to catch, which was more nerve-wracking than it should've been because I was scared of misclicking anything. I juuuust caught the sparkles out the corner of my eye whilst watching a shiny Groudon fail video on YT.
I'm probably going to stay in Eterna Forest, but maybe just on Diamond (my BQ) game for now, and on my second system go back to SR'ing for Registeel that I scraped the surface of a few months ago. That way I can still try and hold out for either a Murkrow or a Buneary, because they're both highly sought after targets of mine. And personally I think the game owes it to me now! Considering the work I put into it some days (something like... 3,100 in one day) I'm really glad that I've at least managed to finish this phase!
Congrats to Growlie19 on Marill and maldoror on Magikarp!
