It has been a long, long hunt for a Shiny Teddiursa, not because of the amount of eggs, but because of my personal life being pretty busy. Work conferences, seeing friends and having a lack of desire to complete the MM hunt all made my latest hunt take a while. BUT IT ENDED TODAY!
After 458 eggs (my longest MM ever - and I know that's still quite lucky), a Male hatched! The IVs sadly aren't the best 0-2/31/31/X/31/31 but he is still cute as! Four egg moves: Counter/Close Combat/Crunch/Play Rough and he is in a Friend Ball to match the colouring! He will have the Guts ability as an Ursaring but I can always use the Ability Capsule. What do you guys think would be the best ability?

I still have 35 eggs to hatch so I'm hoping for another - fingers crossed!
Hey guys! Don't know if you all remember me but I'm back lol! Thanks to my lack of motivation, job and just life in general, I've been doing a lot of on and off (mostly off lol) hunting.
So yeah, I guess I'll update you all :] My last post was like.. 4 or 5 months ago I think? and I was hunting in Mt. Pyre for my Omega Ruby badge quest; aka the most annoying badge quest ever, with every shiny, sans Skarmory going over odds >.<. After like, 9k encounters in Mt. Pyre I just decided to say screw it and use the dex nav. Mentally, I was SO over this badge quest and just wanted it to end already lol. So after 9k encounters and some dex nav encounters shiny Duskull appeared! (I was actually going for Shuppet but this is nice too!)
So that was 7 shinies down on this annoying badge quest, only one more to go! I decided I wanted to end this quest with a full odds shiny and thought, no way I would get another 2x over odds shiny.. Welp, I was wrong. After ~10.1k (-.-) encounters shiny Sealeo appeared!
I was so scared that I was going to get Golbat but thankfully that didn't happen. So this annoying badge quest ended on a high note at least. After beating the elite four I quickly discarded that cursed omega ruby back into its box never to see the light of day again.
So after that I wanted to put focus back on my Rotom hunt. I first began SRing it via Lost Hotel in April but never really put any real effort into it. With my badge quest out of the way, I started to give it a real shot. But oh boy, this hunt was such a struggle. First of all, you don't even get Rotom on every SR, you end up with random items a good amount of time so that slowed things down. Also, Rotom only appears on Tuesdays but that wasn't so bad since I found out that if I keep my 3DS set on Tuesday, I can hunt it as much as I want. The problem was, is that I have HORRIBLE memory lol and I would let the day rollover and I would have to wait 24 hours till Rotom appeared again. Lets just say I made this mistake numerous times lmao. Somewhere down the line I decided that, on the occasion of when I forget to set my time back I would MM something in the meantime until Rotom appeared again. Which brings us to my next shiny!
Yep, this shiny Oddish hatched after... around 200 eggs I think? I didn't really keep count, but it didn't take long at all. Seeing this shiny felt awkward since I haven't had a quick hunt in forever and also I couldn't help feeling that that could of been Rotom! But I was happy overall lol. He has outstanding potential and 31/31/31/x/31/x IVs wished speed didn't get left out but he'll be outspeeding mostly everything in the sun anyways. I'll be evolving him into Bellosom btw <3.
So, back to Rotom. I was doing good with remembering to keep the day set on Tuesday, but of course I eventually forgot to do it one day >.< I then decided to start MMing Growlithe but nothing came from it. Like I said, this hunt was pretty annoying but unlike my omega ruby badge quest, it just made me more motivated. I wanted to see that red! However, I couldn't believe it was taking this long. I was starting to think all the tampering with the date/time settings were messing with my odds but that was just typical shiny drought paranoia, because today, finally after 20k+ SRs shiny Rotom shone itself!
YASSSSS!@@ I haven't been this hyped for a shiny in awhile and it kinda gave me that spark (ha!) back I needed to get back into hunting. My timid sync worked and it ended up with a max SpA IV! Sooo happy this hunt is finally over and I can get started on some new hunts. I really wanna get back to hunting 1/8192 shinies again so that's what I'll probably be focusing on for awhile. I'm thinking of doing a Platinum badge quest and going back to the Safari Zone.. Oh, and I never did finish that Articuno hunt lol I'll probably get started on that too.
Well, that should be everything! Gratz on all the shinies I've missed these past few months and good luck everyone! :]
