Hey everyone! As you can tell from the title…I chained some more SHiny Pokemon!! I wish I wrote down the dates that I caught them, but recently, I’ve caught more new ones, All within 2-3 weeks. Mind you, I don’t chain everyday, but if I do, it would be like 2 hours max a day, (I can’t do more than that, I get headaches lol)
So from my previous posts, I mentioned that I got a Shiny girl Eevee. I know I’m being picky (and sexist… >.<), but I wanted a boy Eevee, because of the nickname I wanted to name him. SO I chained again, and after about 100 or so encounters (I forgot the number of the chains) another Shiny Eevee popped up! And it was a boy! But…..schynozed didn’t work! It wasn’t Impish, it was a neutral nature! -__- Not only that I took him to the IV checker and let’s just say…he sucks lol. Poor thing 😦 Anyways, he wasn’t useable, so I took a break from chaining Eevees Because at that time the sound it makes was making me go crazy.
In between all of this, I tried to Shiny breed again. ITS SO BORING OMG. ALL YOU DO IS RUN AROUND IN CIRCLES AND WAIT FOR THE BABIES TO HATCH OMG. It brought back terrifying memories of my XY shiny breeding days…and still no shiny ;___; I’m trying again at a Shiny Axew, because chaining him in the cave is suicide.
And so, just yesterday (I’m writing it on the day before..because no itnerent..again..) I was chaining them again, and then just when I was talking to my sister about not getting one..another one popped up!! And it was a boy….WITH 3 IVS!! It was amazing!! I caught him, and low and behold, it had the nature I wanted!!! So with that, I finally named him Kuroko, the to be Shiny Umbreon! Because it fits! It fits so well! That’s why I was so picky about the genders :’) I’m so happy because it was more than I wanted, and the cutie pie showed up just when I felt like giving up. That is really the best part, when you least expect it. 😀
The very next day, that lovely encounter made me want to get another Shiny xD So I decided to try my hand at fish chaining. I never really did it before because of no patience, but now that I have free time (lots of it…) I was like, what the heck lets chain a Shiny Pokemon. I wanted to try to get a Shiny Feebas (male of course 😀 ) My friend gave me his Shiny Milotic, but it was a girl…and not only that it wasn’t mine. Is that weird? I want my name to be on the Pokemon because it symbolizes your hard work lol
I did a little research and you’re supposed to have a Pokemon with the ability Suction Cups, to increase the number of reels you get. Now because of that, you can’t synchronize! I was really debating on what to do, because the right nature is very important. The first half hour, I tried to chain them while surfing on my Pokemon, and it wasn’t as torturous as chaining in a cave, but after a while these things don’t give you enough time to catch them and they run…or I end up scaring them away ;__; SO then, I resorted to my Suction cups method.
After a few tries, I finally got used to it. It’s a lot more calmer and relaxing than sneaking around, but it require A LOT of concentration. One quick or late reel in, you break your chain 😦 I was really finger twitchy and I accidentally reeled in too quick and broke the chain fml. But after a few more tries, I got the hang of it.
And so, I think about 60 or so chains, I finally got a Shiny Feebas! A male one too! Not sure if I broke the chain, if I did, it was a chain of 20ish. Now I guess this is what you get when you don’t synchronize, My Feebas ended up having a neutral nature and TERRIBLE IVS lmao. sighs, I guess I’m not super shocked, and it wasn’t as bad, so I’ll try for another one again. I know I sound really frugal but I used a Dive ball on him, because its so pretty and…soooo I wasted my dive ball on a POkemon that I won’t need, aah oh well.
Anyways, that’s my up to date Shiny hunt lol Shiny hunting is actually easy and fun. My SHiny team is coming together and I can’t wait to finally use them online! Even though I have my own main team, I want to have a separate team just for SHinies ^.^ Anywho, till next time!
p.s Imma upload the pictures later, because I’m on a really slow computer T___T
