NO WAIT I’M PLAYING CRYSTAL IS THIS A SHINY NO FUCKING WAYAIUHFKLAJHGFKSJAHFAA THE ANIMATION WAS THE SPARKLES and I only had 4 pokéballs and nothing to weaken it I SO FREAKING FREAKED OUT BUT I CAUGHT IT IT’S MY FAVOURITE SOB AND I WAS BREEDING FOR HIM ON MY REAL CARDTRIGE FUCK I CAN’T BELOIEWGHVMS'BCJKJFGJSH
For those of you who know me, you know I’ve spent over a year trying to hunt down a shiny Spinarak and came up with nothing. It’s already got a name picked out in its honor for being such an elusive butt. Now it has some fanart too.
Hatched this shiny baby randomly while breeding!! Got egg moves Spinarak (with Toxic Spikes and Megahorn) that I wanted to breed for myself before WTing it and suddenly this shiny hatched!! It even has 4IVs haha
YES! Over 3 months of on, and off hunting and I finally get this cutie after a whopping 940 eggs, more than DOUBLE my Noibat! I’m so glad it was a girl too, Widow wouldn’t have been a suiting guys name….
