Bummer.
I hope you don't go more than double odds on it. I wouldn't want to be in the room OR your DS if that happened...

Full odds for Gen VII is 1/4,096. I'm already over triple odds for this psycho-cat.

Whoops... Note to self: Don't post when half-asleep!

After becoming unemployed because of a very bad, very not-nice, very not-professional former employer, I have been passing the time breeding for a shiny Porygon in-between not hearing back from companies. All well. Take your little victories where you can. Took about 850 eggs.

So after a very long 277 eggs, the other Bellsprout required for the line popped out an Egg :)

All three are now transferred (Three including the Weepinbell parent) :)

Whilst hatching a few boxes of forgotten unhatched eggs I came across not one but TWO shiny Sandshrew! Best thing is these Sandrew were the last I needed to complete Box 1-30 of my Shiny Livingdex (my first fully complete box out of about 9 overall)!

I had some shiny luck this week. While doing my horde spams in AlphaSapphire, I got a shiny spoink for the first time. I love the pink pig/grey pearl combo! ^_^ I then switched from Fallarbor to the route heading up to Fortree to start a horde hunt for kecleon, and after two hordes I got my umpteenth shiny wingull. But hey, it was two shinies in three hordes, so not bad.

And in the best news this week, I added another pokemon to my roster of Team Rocket shiny pokemon. I tried SOS hunting for a shiny lickitung in UltraSun, but I got frustrated when help was reaaaallllly slow in coming, so I decided to switch to SOS chaining mareanie again. Shockingly, I found a shiny mareanie pretty quickly, in probably 15 or less calls. So yay, I've added another shiny Team Rocket pokemon to my roster. Pretty soon I'm going to have to devote a whole box to them so I can make sure which ones I still have to get (Arbok, Lickitung, male Wobbuffet, male Woobat, Carnivine, etc.).

Shiny bleeping mewtwo after a total of 17,227 SRs!

*falls over*


This bugger just became my longest Gen VII hunt to date. More than four times over Gen 7 odds. Oi...

Sync worked... He's timid, alert to sounds, and has Pressure. Max IVs in ATK, SpDEF, and Speed but everything else is only "decent". He used Recover three times but thankfully I was able to whittle him back down and got him in my fourth dusk ball.

Back to eggs for a while. Next target is scyther.

Edit: ...Shiny scyther after only 103 eggs. That was quick...

Male, adamant nature, 5IVs missing Spd, takes plenty of siestas, with Technician, and in a sport ball.

Will start hatching for roggenrola now.

Wow............................... I hope you have better luck with the egg hunt. I'm genuinely surprised that you went THAT far over odds! My own Shiny hunts are taking a while, but I would NEVER wish a hunt THAT long on anyone! Still, congrats on Shiny Mewtwo! I've been after one of those since HGSS! Still haven't gotten up the nerve to hunt for it!

XD You replied to my post just before I edited it... Check again

I've had worse hunts than this mewtwo. That Damn Ledyba in Y (SR at the berry fields, route 7) took me damn near 28,000 resets. And dialga in AS was only just slightly less bad

You lucky sonova... I'm still MM'ing for Phione and also started up an MM for a Shiny Rockruff for my LivingDex, with no luck thus far! Why does my luck seem to come and go?!

No news in anything but Go...
Well Moltres Day was interesting. On my last "easy" (a.k.a. not having to drive somewhere else) raid, I finally got a shiny Moltres. That was 11 or 12 raids then, I forget. Then, that same day, I got a shiny Bulbasaur and Murkrow as well. That boggled me quite a bit. Still hunting like crazy for Growlithe and Houndour tho. Both are very common locally, but no luck.

Shiny roggenrola after 288 eggs. Not bad...

The purple pebble hatched out Careful nature, takes plenty of siestas, 31/31/31/xx/xx/31, and has Weak Armor. Should become Sand Stream once it evolves to gigalith. He also hatched in a beast ball, which is a bit of a miracle... I had to go catch a roggenrola to start breeding, and I got it in the beast ball on the very first toss. That right there is the miracle considering the catch rates those balls have for 'mons that aren't UBs.

That's all the trade evo 'mons I have for the moment (I think...). Now I need to find a trading partner. And make a trip to the battle tree to grab a few more evo items... And evolve geodude and roggenrola to graveler and boldore.

Going to hatch for beldum next.

Anyone on my friend list willing to help me with some trade evolutions? Please?

350 eggs and counting for beldum. Looks like things are getting back to normal in terms of hunt length.

Still looking for someone to help me with the trade evolving.

Shiny beldum after 567 eggs. Jolly nature, somewhat vain, with Clear Body. Not the happiest about its IVs... 31/31/31/xx/31/xx, but that's what bottle caps are for. Hatched in a beast ball.

Mienfoo next.

Edit: With the help of Artnerd, all my trade evos are done :D

Edit #2: Shiny mienfoo after 64 eggs. That was quick...

Male, jolly nature, somewhat vain, and he got his HA, Reckless. Almost perfect IVs, but got a "very good" DEF stat. It's still pretty high, though.

Going to hatch some fossil 'mons next. Up first is cranidos, then archen.
