A long time ago, in a region far, far away.. I was wandering through the ole Hoenn Safari Zone in Pokemon Emerald when out of the blue, a pink little Wooper showed up. Well, me being the dumb 13 year old(at the time, this was 2007 wowie) that I was, I had no idea just the significance this Wooper in particular held. I had no clue what a shiny Pokemon was or that they even existed. But, I knew there was something about this Wooper that made me HAVE to catch it. But, being the Safari Zone and all, I knew there was a risk that I wouldn’t. I chucked the first ball. It broke out. I chucked the second ball. Guess what? It broke out. But, despite breaking out twice, it stayed. As they say, third time’s the charm and on the third Safari Ball, I managed to catch the little cutie. Fast forward 2 years, I hand off the then Quagsire to a friend to hold onto while I took a break from Pokemon. Well, long story short, he lost it somehow. It took many years for me to gather the heart to start a reclaim hunt for it, and I started just this May(2015), as what I believe to be the perfect 300 YouTube subscriber special. 

5,306 random encounters later, a brilliant, pink Wooper graced my screen again! I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am to have found this incredible shiny once again! And this time I won’t lose it, ever. I promise! Also, a shoutout to the 237 of you that follow this blog! I really appreciate your support more than anything! 

Until next time, best of luck on all of your endeavors!
