To Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before.

Got lucky yesterday in Violet. Was just wandering around and item gathering and raiding, when I ran into a shiny Skiddo. Caught it.

my first shiny in gen 9 is paldean wooper (before I even got to the first gym, without a shiny charm) I named him yippee
and so far in this rabbithole I've got a total of 31 shinies on my scarlet file (19 of which were found random, 3 through MM and 9 through sandwiches and mass outbreaks) and 5 on my shield file (all through MM)
Congratulations on your shiny Paldean Wooper and your impressive shiny collection! It's remarkable to find so many shinies, especially without the shiny charm. Your dedication to shiny hunting across multiple games shows true commitment and adds a unique flair to your Pokémon journey. Keep up the fantastic work, Trainer.

I got really lucky today on Pokemon Go. I got invited to a raid instead of having to use the campfire for one, which I'm glad for since I needed Tapu Fini to finish getting all the Alolan Guardians in the game. I was in disbelief when it turned out to be shiny, AND I got it on the first ball.
When it comes to the Tapu raids I've been fortunate to get all four of them in their black finish


yeah that guy
does anybody care about pokemon quest nowadays?
anyways, I got a shiny Vulpix in this free-to-play Rumble wannabe mobile game. it was so high level so I evolved it right away into Ninetales
such a beautiful shiny even when it looks like a blocky toy
