Congrats to everyone on their new shinies, especially Razorbadger, Cpchris and Tina.
Tina you can call me Storm_Dragoon if you like, or Storm(seeing as I go by that anyways even with the name change
Okay, I have a reason why I'm posting here today.
After I got my shiny Clefairy I decided to hunt for a Chansey with a Lucky Egg in the Safari Zone. I haven't had much luck with catching said Chansey, let alone getting a Lucky Egg from one. Out of the couple hundred Chansey that I've seen, I probably caught less than 15 of the things(with 0 Lucky Eggs). I was busy watching a few videos on youtube to pass the time while I kept my search for Chansey. Instead, only a few minutes into the hunt, I got a shiny Nidorina! My heart was in my throat, I had a gut feeling that this shiny was going to flee. The first Safari Ball thrown it got to two shakes, but it stayed. After I threw the second ball, it bust free from it on the first shake, then it ran D=.
Bye-bye shiny Nidorina
I decided to go back into the Safari Zone in hopes of trying to reclaim the shiny that ran from me. I was scrolling through this thread, debating on whether to post about the failed shiny Nidorina. I was almost out of steps in the Safari Zone, so I was a few minutes away from SRing my game to get my money back. Instead, less than an hour after I lost that shiny Nidorina:
A shiny Nidoran ♀ appeared on my screen!
By this time, I was in complete shock. My hands were shaking so badly holding my DS, so I put it down on my bed and started to throw Safari Balls. The shiny Nidoran ♀ broke free from the 1st ball, and I figured it would run, and I'd have to reclaim it. It stayed, so I threw another Safari Ball and crossed my fingers. One shake, two shakes, three shakes, *click*, shiny Nidoran♀ was caught!
I've never left the Safari Zone so fast in my life XD. I'm pretty sure I saved my game over 20 times
I had a feeling that I was going to get a shiny before I even caught a Chansey with a Lucky Egg. This game has been the absolute WORST trying to get a Lucky Egg. In FireRed I caught three Chansey and TWO of them had Lucky Eggs, but this game won't give me one. I'm definitely going to be sticking around the Safari Zone until I get one Lucky Egg. I just hope that I don't run into another shiny because this place is scary xD.
