If you've been reading my blog, you would know that a)I've already used this way to start out a post, and b)that I had readers to choose a team for my Black version. I got to looking at all of the Pokemon, and I was like, "Hmmm.. They all look pretty cool shiny!" So I decided that I would RNG abuse to get my entire team shiny. Then I was like, "Hey! Why don't I make it a rule that every Pokemon I use must be shiny! Even the useless monkey that is only helpful for the first gym!" And so, it happened. It will make the game take longer than usual, but I'm probably not going to catch many Pokemon besides my team, just whatever I need at the time and what will be helpful. Through this, I hope to explore all of the different types of BW RNG abuse. Currently, I've done ID/SID abuse, abuse for stationary Pokemon (starters), abuse for gift Pokemon (monkey), and abuse for eggs (in White). So wish me luck! (Well, you don't have to; it's just a suggestion :P)

I really don't understand the point of RNG abusing your team just for a shiny challenge. The whole point in the challenge is that it's meant to be hard, meaning you have to work hard to get every single Pokemon shiny. Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for RNG abuse and stuff, but doing it for a challenge just seems silly. :P

Yeah, I know. I wasn't sure if I should have called a challenge or not.. A real shiny challenge would take forever too. It's mainly just a fun way for me to explore and master the different types of RNG abuse. Also, RNG abuse can be challenging at some points.

I personally call it a shiny run, which is what I'm doing on SS and Enligsh White. However, I'm a bit of a cheater in that some are traded. Some of them I found, and some of them are seriously traded from someone else. But I did say shiny run, not challenge. ;3
