no seriously, I moved like 3 months ago and just found my firered today, i'm not lying.
on my saphire: SR'd for metagross, caught zangoose
firered: SR'd for mewtwo, suicune, and charmander- which is now charizard
ruby: caught shiny swablu- evolved it.
pearl: my brother hadn't fought cresselia or even messed with it yet, so I SR'd on his game for it.
and I caught the shuckle for my friend, he found it though, does that still count?
