Happy birthday to me!!
Haven't had a birthday shiny since 2013!! And this one, unlike my 2013 MM'd Budew, is full odds, too!
AND IT'S FEMALE AT LONG LAST.........
Shiny Whismur comes in to grace me on my birthday. <3 I'm so elated to add this one to my collection. So precious! And it's female, just like I wanted! I could nickname it after Bonnibel Bubblegum from AT, since, you know.... it's round and pink. Mild is such a fitting and great nature for what I plan to do with her as well.
I found this shiny as my brother was pulling us up in the Walmart parking lot and the sun was blinding my view and I just saw some mint green spots appear onto my screen and I screamed "WAIT IS THAT A SHINY WHISMUR????" before shoving my face right into my DS screen. What a thrill.
This marks BQ#2 for Sapphire! YES! I believe Route 110 will be the stage for my third hunt on Sapphire, where Electrike will be my main target. I initially thought I'd weed out Zigzagoon and Wingull with repel trick, but this method makes Oddish as common as Elektrike, and Oddish is the one Pokémon on this route I wouldn't want the shiny. And so I've decided to hunt regularly in the grass. I'll be very happy with everything else, though!
Good luck everyone!
