SHINY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been pretty excited to do the December Quest, and with three shinies needed to win, I figured I'd try to get a shiny roughly every 10 days. Since it's already December 13th, I decided to start on my second target and dual hunt it along with my Icefall Cave hunt. I love both Snorunt and Spheal, so I headed to Shoal Cave in Ruby, but it was high tide and my internal battery is dry, so I couldn't get to the inner chamber that had Snorunt as well as Spheal. I brushed the dust off of Emerald and decided to hunt there, as I had gotten two RE shinies on it before and could always leave it plugged in so as not to reset the RNG.

On exactly encounter number 1000, SHINY SPHEAL!!!!!! Very Happy

Spoiler:
 

I wasn't expecting to finish my second hunt before my first, haha. I was more than 5 hours into Emerald, probably around 8 or 9. I caught him on my first Ultraball throw.

It's also my first late night (technically early morning) shiny: I caught him at 4:12 AM! Sleep Also, I was pretty lucky that he wasn't a Zubat or Golbat, or else he wouldn't count for the contest!

rendeer For my Winter Holiday shiny, I'm going to go for Snover on Route 216. santa It also has a 25% chance of Sneasel, which would be pretty cool too (no pun intended!).

6250 Icefall Cave encounters.

!!!! I JUST GOT LIKE THE BEST SHINY OF ALL TIME: BELDUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very Happy Wow, I can hardly believe this! I was taking a short break from my Icefall Cave hunt to try some other things, so I decided to start breeding Beldum to make a 5th gen competitive team. Metagross can't learn Stealth Rock in GenV, so I was breeding on Diamond. I wasn't really looking for a shiny - I was hoping deep down that I'd get one, but 1/8192 breeding takes a really long time and I was just going to SR when the R/S/E remakes come out. My plan was to breed until I got 10 Adamant ones and then take the one with the best stats to use for my competitive team. But after a very short amount of Beldum, THE HATCH SCREEN WAS GLISTENED WITH SILVER BEAUTY!!! This is an amazing early Christmas present! santa Shiny Metagross is one of my favorites of all time, and it's most definitely in my top 5 (along with Rayquaza, Charizard, Latias, and probably Chandelure). This is so amazing!! I wasn't expecting to get one of my favorite shinies ever now, haha.

I wasn't counting the number of eggs, but my best guess would be 31. It was the first one of a new batch, and I probably did around 20 last night and then 11 this morning. I got my shiny Spheal at 4:12 AM and Beldum at 4:28 AM, but the circumstances were completely different: with Spheal, I hadn't gone to bed yet and was staying up late; with Beldum, I had already slept for 8 hours and was getting up early. sunny

As my second shiny this month, Beldum ties a personal record for me. cheers There are still 9 days left in the month (and year!), so hopefully I'll be able to beat my monthly best.

Yes! Very Happy

This is the best month ever.

Spoiler:
 

Wow. This is amazing! I've been hunting the Johto starters since April 15th, and I'm sure that I'm well over 30,000 Pokemon seen by now. I SRed over a shiny Chikorita back on July 4th, and I was wondering if I'd ever get one, haha. It seems like I've been dual hunting Johto starters alongside pretty much every hunt I've had!

I had actually opened MS Paint to start working on a new banner, but I closed it and decided to work on getting another shiny and save myself the work of having to update the banner again. And behold! A shiny Totodile right after I close Paint. bounce

I found him at 8:15 AM, my first shiny in a while I actually got at a normal time, haha.

As if I didn't have enough reason to love December already. santa
