pain in the ***
I am soooo depressed right now. Now that the game is out in the US people have confirmed that shiny alolan starters aren't visible from the initial cutscene. Which means a single reset is probably going to take almost 4 minutes... so much for my plans to start with a shiny Litten.
Nah. When I get Sun I'll just start playing with Rowlet. I'll try resetting for the white kitty when I eventually get Moon. Though I'm gonna need all the patience and moral support I can get since it will take me a few days just to get 1000 encounters in. But even though I'll probably have to hunt for weeks, I really want him. And shiny starters that aren't picked as starters aren't really the same imo.
Grats to everyone for their shinies!
When you get to the nickname screen you can see whether or not they're shiny. I've seen people finding them on Youtube. I'm going to SR litten no matter how long the SRs take.
Still working on seviper. I'm up to 874 seen.
Edit: After 939 seviper seen, a blue-fanged serpent appears on my screen. He's lax nature and highly curious, with Shed Skin and Swallow as an egg move. I think he had a 1- or 2-star potential, but I was distracted so I wasn't really looking.
Going to get set up for SRing landorus now. That hunt begins tomorrow.
