    • I accidentally scared the shit out of my parents in the car, I was breeding Eevees to get all the evolutions for my friends and I. And I screamed in the car while they were driving because I managed to hatch a shiny eevee

    • So genuine question because ive never given a shot about shinies. If you get, say, a shiny magikarp, does it evolve into a shiny gyrados? Like does the pokemon keep the fucked up color palette beyond evolutions

    • I haven't been into shinies since I went ham breeding in ORAS. The appeal kinda wears off when you force it. But I was pretty lucky on all that I went for except Shuckle and the dark type little fox wolf thing I forget his name. Zorark?

    • I once raced with my brother to breed a shiny pokemon off our choice. I had shiny charm, egg charm, mesuda method, and magikarp eggs (the fastest hatching). 1/2

    • Or you could just catch the mon in pokemon go where the odds are 1/425 literally 10 times better and that is with full odds because in community days that happen once a month you get like a 1/20 chance at a specific mon and you could just trade them into pokemon sword. Or at least that is what I do.

I begun my search for a shiny Snom by using the mesuda method, but gave up around 30 to 45 eggs, then I went on to kill and capture around 1,000 of the marshmallow icy bastards. After that failed, I went
