Well, well, well.
I found this account, it's 6 years old now. Crazy to think that everything is still here like nothing happened (except I remember when the New and Improved Shiny Thread was created
). Simpler times, y'know. Growing up sucks. Anyways, I've recently gotten this huge urge to boot up Pokemon, and I'm having a great time. Picked up some used copies of Sun and Moon from the store, probably going to be picking up Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon fairly soon. I specifically remember back in the day trying to Shiny hunt (to no avail, I must've tried a Soulsilver BQ at least 20 times).
Anyways, enough of the sappy story of "Hi, I'm back despite being gone for years so nobody remembers me" and stuff, of course I'm posting on the Shiny thread for a reason. Today I booted up Pokemon X, the last Pokemon game I beat and really got invested into. Other than taking a trip down memory lane with my 90+ team on there, I also decided I wanted to go Shiny hunting. After 428 Friend Safari Encounters,
a little Pancham shined for me.
I was ecstatic, this was my first shiny in years. and it felt so good, so I decided to see if I remembered my password for the account and jump on the Shiny thread. Crazy to see over 30,000 posts now. I might post a picture later, I'm not concerned with IVs or anything, just catching them to catch them.
Well, I'm sure you'll see me around here or somewhere on the forums, I don't know how active I'll be. Congrats to the literal thousands
of shinies caught since my last post, and good luck to everyone still hunting! It's lovely to meet you all!
