Thanks to Paraqua
for the congrats!
So this is a random question I thought would make for an interesting topic: How many consoles have you seen people hunt on at one time? I was stunned when I saw one guy on youtube hunting on eight GBA SPs with Ruby and Sapphire. I don't know how he managed to stop himself from getting Carpal Tunnel Syndrome!
I've seen seven or eight at once as well. I can barely manage hunting on more than two systems at a time, so I don't know how these people do it - they have a crazy amount of dedication to shiny hunting. In fact, from what I've seen, a lot of them tend to fail shinies more often because it's just too hard to pay attention to all those games at once.
Haven't had a chance to post these until now, but I've managed to get two more shinies since the last time I was here. The first was a shiny Fletchling
on my Y Route Quest, just a few days after I got Cutiefly. It came after 5240 REs, which isn't so bad. Her name is Red Baroness and she has a Quiet nature. I've since evolved her into a Talonflame and will probably use her as my new MM hatcher. The second was a shiny Tranquill
in White last week while hunting for Mienfoo and Druddigon at Dragonspiral Tower. It appeared after 3403 REs total, and on only the second encounter of the day - I was completely flabbergasted! This one is also female, named Phoebe, with a Calm nature and the Big Pecks ability. I'll be keeping her as a Tranquill because I prefer male Unfezant's shiny, and Tranquill itself is actually a much nicer shiny in person than I'd ever realized.
I'm now onto the third hunt of the Route Quest, hoping for a (male) Burmy on Route 3, and I've started Phase 2 at Dragonspiral Tower, where I'm now repel tricking to guarantee that I get one of my targets. I'm also slowly chipping away at my other hunts, and especially hoping that Chimchar decides to show its face soon because it's starting to get close to the odds (6600 SRs atm). Maybe I'll get lucky and find one last shiny before January is over.
Good luck to all of you on your hunts, especially Cyberra
on your Gen 7 starters!
