Ah! I just started today, and I totally understand.
But no, I haven't. But I recently recieved some shiny RNG'd hoenn starters with good IVs and a Deoxys and a WORLD10 Crobat if you would like that :3 For when you ever end up starting your thread.
I also finally got a complete set of Crown Beasts, but I have no idea if they're legit. Maybe we could take care of that sometime this weekend?
Oh no, don't tear your hair out.D: I'm with you there lol. The highest I ever got was 28, and even then, there's these people who get chains of like 240+? I've gotten 3 1/8,192 shinies in total, just randomly, no RNGing. One day, I started up my Pokemon FireRed, walked around in the grass a little bit, right after I got the Poke Balls, and found a shiny Pidgey. Another time, I was playing Sapphire and catching Trapinches to migrate to Platinum, and had this odd feeling I was going to find a shiny one.. Sure enough.xD More recently, I was hatching Digletts with one hand, surfing the web with the other, and thinking how I was going to go about getting my first shiny on Plat., then an egg hatches, and I look down, and I'm like, "O hay look its shiny" xD But I just happen to be lucky so all of my (non-RNG) shinies get terrible natures.
By the way, the Suicune you traded me, I ran it through the hack check thread, and it came out as hacked.. You don't need to refund me or anything like that, I kept clones of the Pokes. But if you traded it to someone else, you might want to let them know.
