Congrats to pokemaster13 on Eevee, and everyone else on your shinies!
Well, my hunt for Pidgey has become my second-longest hunt, passing my previous second longest hunt of 20,378 (which sadly ended with a 5th Magby). Luckily, it only beats that hunt by 4 REs, as after 20,382 REs
, I found a shiny Pidgey
It appeared on my 182nd RE of the day…I’d actually been slowing down a bit and was distracted trying to decide what I’d hunt next after finding Pidgey, since, like Giratina, I’m going to need certain moves if I want to catch Ho-Oh in a pokeball, which means I need to find certain pokemon in my next 3 hunts. So I was clicking along looking at moves, and entered an encounter, and then I saw the lighter color when it first appeared on the screen and froze…But it also wouldn’t have been the first time I was shino’d by a Pidgey, so I just kept watching eagerly, getting more and more sure it was shiny as it continued across the screen, until it finally was revealed in full and I saw the lighter colors for sure, followed by some sparkles and I was just so happy
Better yet, which I checked immediately after knowing it was shiny, it’s female! I wouldn’t have cared if it was male, but I was hoping for a female. She’s got a Brave nature (+Atk, -Speed, so kinda good, kinda bad)and is A little quick tempered.
I’m so so so happy she finally shone
And now I can go fight the 5th Gym and get Fly, which is why I wanted Pidgey so badly by this gym, as I wouldn’t have used Fly unless I had a shiny on my BQ team that could use it (so finding an Oddish would have been cool, but then I’d be stuck walking everywhere still).
, I know we were both having bad luck on our 5th shinies for our HG BQs, so just stick with it since it’ll eventually shine
And as long as I’m naming names this time (which I generally avoid so I don’t leave anyone out), good luck with Giratina, AquaRegisteel
, that’s being quite the stubborn dragon! And of course, good luck to everyone else on your hunts
Oh, and one last thing since it looks like it counts for this months CH: Community Hunt Complete!
EDIT: Heh, I keep forgetting :3 Turns out I don't even need to worry about as many pokemon...I keep thinking Ho-Oh will know Safeguard (and as such, I'd need a paralyzer since sleep won't be practical when that's the only move it has left), but it actually doesn't :x So for now (until later hunts) I just need a sleeper and a pokemon to drain health...So I'll probably go for a Poliwag/Poliwhirl for Hypnosis, and a Ratata for Endeavor/Super Fang.
