you’re terrible. i take one look t the math in the chances and give up. but if i have a shiny pokémon that i caught myself i would love and cherish it forever.
GLOATING TIME GO!
I’ve caught a shiny Rufflet, Bisharp, Axew, and (my crowning achievement) a shiny Dratini. All together it probably took about 10 hours. (Not including breaks due to FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-) I’ve tried to get others but it’s just so time consuming and frustrating.
Also I bred a shiny Charizard. It’s a fucking monster. I have no idea how it got the stats it has, but they don’t seem right at all. I’ve had it since Fire Red.
It’s my favorite.
