In this thread I want to ask you couple of questions, about the Lucky Eggs. As far as we know, in FR/LG they can be found on Chanseys which have really small chance of appearing in Safari Zone. The chance of finding one is still 5% on each Chansey, giving even lower chances to get it.

Single Lucky Egg gives 50% boost to experience after winning battles. Giving the extra boost from using traded Pokemon this gave a huge advantage in training before the major events in the game, including E4.

While playing your FR/LG game on GBA and visiting Fuschia City, did you bother to hunt for at least one? Or maybe you wanted to have more, so you wouldn't switch it to other Pokemon in your team?
If you got it, have you used it properly?
Or maybe you were in the point of game you knew you're gonna destroy everything anyway?

Answer and discuss my friends.
The one that's going to die... IS YOU!!!

I must admit that I thought the lucky egg was a generation IV onward item, because they wouldn't do such thing like giving a 5% held chance to an ultra rare Pokémon. I found out later I was so wrong, but never bothered to take a search for one. I was happy already that I had found and captured a Chansey at all, looking for one holding a lucky egg probably needs more effort than finding a Feebas in RSE (which I haven't looked for either).

I didn't specifically need the item to beat the game, but I would have really come in handy when training other Pokémon post-game. 1.5 × the normal experience is a whole lot. I experienced that when training Pokémon from Emerald in my FireRed. But considering the fact that the effect even stacks with the trade boost, would more than double the experience obtained.

Chansey's hard enough to encounter as is lol. I remember hunting for it in Gen 4, because Chansey could be chained with the PokeRadar. Never bothered in previous gens.

I actually have one on my Fire Red which I traded over to Emerald. I'm surprised actually, upon discovering how rare it is that I found it with such ease. It took me four Chanseys to find one with it held.

What's annoying about the Gen III games outside of Emerald is that a lot of the field abilities such as Compound Eyes, which boost the liklihood of a wild Pokémon holding an item, are not in effect. They were Emerald and Gen IV upwards.

I also managed to snag a Venomoth holding Silverpowder which is also incredibly rare.

I didn't even know that lucky eggs existed until gen IV. I wouldn't of bothered trying to get one in FR/LG even if I did know about lucky eggs back then.

I am also one of the people that was shocked to learn Lucky Eggs were a thing. I learned about them in Gen 5, purely because they were handed to you. Wish I could have seen them before that as they are incredibly useful.

I knew about the Lucky Egg since this generation, and may have hacked to get it before. But I know that wasn't the case in Generation IV where I stole some from Chansey.

What will really blow all your minds is that Lucky Egg existed in the original Gold/Silver. It's a Gen II item.

I knew Lucky Eggs existed (both here and earlier), and I tried to hunt for one, but didn't have much luck. Thus, they didn't become a staple of my training regimen until gen IV. It's just too much effort to hunt down Chanseys, try to catch them, and hope they have the lucky egg, especially without any good way to increase the odds of them holding an item in FRLG. I thought about completing the quest in XD to get a lucky egg and then sending it to LG (since LG is where I've done the most training), but I've never gotten around to it, and at this point, it kind of seems like a lot of effort for relatively little return.

I didn't get around to using a Lucky Egg for training til gen V, honestly. Never would have thought to hunt them down on Chansey in FRLG. They're hard to find and then you still have to catch them and hope and pray they have the thing. Not worth that much time, honestly.

I just got a Lucky Egg in FireRed! I started hunting Chansey to try and get one, and I got lucky and found it on the second one I caught. I've hunted for it in the past and never found it, so I'm thrilled to finally have one on third gen. : D

I discovered the Lucky Egg during a randomized monotype rock run in FR. Ever since then I've hacked it into all my Gen 2/3 runs as the starter's held item to expedite grinding.
