I've been pretty excited to do the December Challenge, and with three shinies, I figured I'd try to get a shiny roughly every 10 days. Since it's already December 13th, I decided to start on my second target and dual hunt it along with my Icefall Cave hunt. I love both Snorunt and Spheal, so I headed to Shoal Cave in Ruby, but it was high tide and my internal battery is dry, so I couldn't get to the inner chamber that had Snorunt as well as Spheal. I brushed the dust off of Emerald and decided to hunt there, as I had gotten two RE shinies on it before and could always leave it plugged in so as not to reset the RNG.

On exactly encounter number 1000, SHINY SPHEAL!!!!!! :cer_boogie:

Spoiler:


I wasn't expecting to finish my second hunt before my first, "lol." I was more than 5 hours into Emerald, probably around 8 or 9. I caught him on my first Ultraball throw.

It's also my first late night (technically early morning) shiny: I caught him at 4:12 AM! :cer_laugh: Also, I was pretty lucky that he wasn't a Zubat or Golbat, or else he wouldn't count for the contest!

For my Winter Holiday shiny, I'm going to go for Snover on Route 216. It also has a 25% chance of Sneasel, which would be pretty cool too (no pun intended!).

6250 Icefall Cave encounters.
