Ok need to get a wifi adapter for gba then.
Well, uhh...I could send a shiny Cascoon caught in RSE to you through a save file if you wanted, but I was thinking 3DS Wi-Fi. I'd move it up to (Ultra) Moon.

Suit yourself, it's just a simple Method J search though. :P

I started a new file on Fire Red and obtained the same shiny Aerodactyl as I posted before in less than 100 SR's.  Seems a lucky poke for me. The other Pokemon you can SR for in FR/LG such as the starters, Eevee, Lapras and the game corner pokes - I have never obtained as a shiny despite resetting a lot for them. I don't even go for shinies, I just SR for good natures and IV's.

Well this was tragic. Two balls left (one when this photo was taken) I used a rock and it broke out both times. Nidorina's catch rate is not so low, so I feel this was plain unlucky. Oh well this was my first wild shiny I've encountered on Fire Red.

Hey guys,

So basically, I've been playing Pokémon since R/B/Y, but I recently made a total count of hours played on games that contain Shiny Pokémon (2G onwards).

That would be 857 Hours and 28 Minutes, distributed on 17 different games. While playing the main story, I have been doing for all this time a Living Pokédex run (for which at this time I have 803/807 Pokémon total). That to explain that I have spent a considerable amount of time attempting to encounter Pokémon.

Despite this, never in my life I have encountered a Shiny Pokémon by pure chance.

Until last night, with that little Heliolisk in the Ultra Space Wilds. It took that much time for me to finally reach that milestone  :P

300-some hours across all gens before my first. Legit SoulSilver cart, it was a Ratatta. Level 7(?)... accidentally killed.

Ask me about depression.
Ask me about death.

Ask me about hardship.

Mega oofers.


I can't get the exact amount of hours I've played Gens 2+, but i'd say it was around that amount (circa 300 hours). Never recall genuinely encountering a shiny without actively looking for one/hacking. Oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Not too long ago I accidentally encountered a 1/8192 Shiny Ho-Oh while fishing for Pokémon in EN Pokémon Gold glitch map 0xDA00, no lie.

Too bad glitches were required and this was not on 3DS Virtual Console, both meaning I wouldn't want to transfer it up as it's technically not legit or couldn't legitimately be moved up the generations.

Unlucky though. :( Hope you get one like that soon.

Hi!

I'm Evie.

I'm a transgender person, but any pronouns are fine. She/her preferred.

Unfortunately due to legal concerns I won't be using emulators and unauthorised copies of ROMs anymore, just real hardware with official cartridges and a cheating device (Xploder) to aid research, sorry.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪





Thanks Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

To love yourself is to believe in yourself, respect yourself, but to make allowances for weakness. If you do the same with others in need (believing in them), in keeping an open mind and being modest, then it will not only help each other but can make life more meaningful. The heart though, has no script, and true wisdom may not exist; often ignorance can give us bliss and the darker times enlighten us later on.

It was possibly one of the Level 135 ones, but I don't know for sure, ha ha.
