coriander lv. 9 / 1900 soft resets
blaze / relaxed
tackle / leer / smokescreen

we were greeted by shiny cyndaquil at a crisp 1900 resets. i had been hunting for spinarak the past week, but realized there's a better area for that later, so i'm just going to get ready for falkner and move on to another hunt. i've been dual hunting on other games as well, so guess we'll see how that goes. i think i might lose my patience trying to hunt in one game at a time, but i know they only count in the challenge for this game i signed up with. but man it moves slow lol.​

Well! A few years after I posted this idea I see it caught on fire!

Oh wait

But wait! Tonight I started a new save file and less then a hour later.

Let's go!

oh wow aha. so like. i still shiny hunt this file but i've been very slow. i ended up staying on route 32 bc i wanted anything but a rattata. i found two of them, both under odds, but i didn't count. then i found a bellsprout, also under odds, but not counted. i completely forgot i ever had posted to this thread for this run. i don't have a fancy update, but the fact i'm still playing this is funny haha. i also hunt Very slowly, so like. the under odds is nice, but the fact i only shiny hunt when i feel like it which isn't Always often. lol
