Nice, that was almost like my Shiny Ho-Oh from back then XD
I think my Shiny Ho-Oh's non-perfect IV was in SpDef though. A bit bad since SpDef is one of its highest stat, but I guess that kinda balances the lower IV.

Well, Pokemon Go was fruitful for me this week.

First I got a pair of shiny Electabuzz in the Community Day last Saturday, and I evolved one into Electivire. They were my first shiny Electabuzz, so I was pretty happy. I've got my fingers crossed that I'll get magmar shinies this weekend.

Then I got my second shiny Magnemite in the game. I traded it to my colleague at work for a shiny abra (which I've never had) and evolved it to Alakazam.

Finally, I was surprised to find a shiny Slowpoke in the game. I wasn't even aware it was released. I evolved it to Slowbro. Did anyone else hear Slowpoke was released?

Yes, I remember being surprised because one of its Shiny Evolution is purple and the other Shiny Evolution is violet closer to pink, its original color.

One of my recent catches via Go. Glad to at least get one shiny Magmar/Magmortar.

Speaking of Shiny Go, I recently just got a Shiny Eevee from the Research Missions. At first I was afraid to evolve it since I really wanted it to evolve to either a Shiny Vaporeon or a Shiny Glaceon (I have a dream of becoming The Strongest Water Duelist) but I evolved it anyway. Thankfully it did evolve to Shiny Vaporeon.
 
Guzzlord shone a few days ago, wrapping up Ultra Sun for SR hunting. I've also hatched a shiny Sableye today in pokemon Sword.
I finally continued Ultra Moon now and beat Ultra Necrozma. Just started a SR hunt for Poipole on it. I don't have the shiny charm in this game yet, but gift pokemon aren't affected by the shiny charm anyways. It being lower odds will probably mean this is gonna take a while.

I'm also MM'ing for Mawile in Sword.

They call me the one who loves cats.
So I want to share a crazy shiny experience that I had earlier.

Me and my sister were playing a round of Dynamax Adventures trying for shiny legendaries and in one particular Adventure we had a shocker where both me and my sister got a shiny Pokemon in the same Adventure (It wasn't the same Pokemon though). I didn't even think that was possible, but here we are.

She got herself a shiny Passimian. Meanwhile, I got my shiny Ultra Beast I was looking for, which was Celesteela. It took me about 20-30 Adventures to get that (I don't remember the exact number and I'm not counting losses). Glad it didn't take too long, because I almost started to regret it after continuous losses, but my sister encouraged me to keep going and in the end, it worked out and we both got a shiny each.

Needless to say, I'm still very surprised this happened and is probably one of my most "Oh My Gosh" moments in a Pokemon game ever.

Just wanted to pop in to say I have found my seventh BQ team member in Y!

Shiny Spewpa in the Berry Fields! It appeared decently fast, and it's a hunt I've always wanted to do deep down. Shiny Spewpa has SUCH a cool shiny, so seeing it appear straight out of the shadow was an incredible experience. Novembre is female, just as I wanted, and is Brave natured, with amazing Speed, HP and Defense IVs but terrible everything else. You could say her IV spread is.... polarizing. *badum tss*
She is going to do beautifully against the next gym!

Final hunt of this BQ will be Klefki/Phantump/Pumpkaboo on Route 16! Only 10% chances of getting a Foongus with Magnet Pull for Klefki, so I believe I will be able to finish this BQ with the next Pokémon that shines! I can't believe Munchlax has given enough time for Y to catch up...

Unfortunately, I didn't get a shiny magmar with the Community Day hunt, but my game took pity on me and gave me a shiny zubat right after the event was over.

I didn't expect to find Klefki so quick!!


Sol the Klefki (named after the french name for the G-clef, 'clef de Sol') is my 8th and final (!!!) member of my Y BQ. I can't believe in the time it took me to hunt Munchlax (still ongoing) I was able to both start and finish a BQ in Y. Incredible.
Sol is Mild nature which is awesome, has amazing IVs and is absolutely adorable. <3 That blue is really cool!

Only thing left to do now is to train Sol up and go through the rest of this crazy adventure! Here's a picture of the final team:

4,243 resets. The longest of the Regis, but still decently quick!
So the total for all Regi is 262 + 1,832 + 721 + 21 + 4,014 + 4,243 = 11,093 encounters in all!

EDIT: Late last night, had a successful DA after only 7 runs!
Fini is Impish, which will require Minting later.

I really wish they had raised the pokemon storage in Pokemon Go to 4000 a week earlier, I hit the 3500 limit this past week. While it would ordinarily be a minor annoyance, it bothered me that I kept trying my darndest to fulfill all the nidoran goals in the hopes of getting a male shiny and only got my second shiny female in the game. I was so frustrated. UGH. I had to dump a ton of rattatas and magickarps afterward too, some in Let's Go Eevee and some in my game just because I've been trying to earn their medals, so it would have been nice to have the limit raised earlier. -_-

Also I got a shiny Psyduck on Thanksgiving. :)

Finally after almost a year Project Platinum has been accomplished:



The Shiny Darkrai was caught a couple of months back, and the Shiny Shaymin was just caught today. I had to chuck a Master Ball on the Darkrai, as I had actually spawned a shiny one about 6 months ago, and then had the game hang on me while I was trying to catch it (the cartridge is pretty old).

The Shaymin had a better catch rate so I used Ultra Balls on it (laying it on the table so that it wouldn't shake so much and risk freezing the game again). I was actually RNGing the Shaymin while doing the same for the Sword and Shield Regice.

They're now both in Omega Ruby just in case the cartridge decides to conk out the save file.
