Found a shiny Slugma, silver and pretty cool, until for some reason my save file got deleted!
Haha this. It really is fucking annoying how the animation delays the start of every fight.TizzytheTormentor said:Never got why people wanted shiny Pokemon so much, their shiny animation at the start of every battle was annoying as f**k.
All you have to do is multiply the odds together, i.e. 8192 X (65536/3) to get 1 in 178956970 and some change. It doesn't get much easier than that and math is by far my weakest subject.Leemaster777 said:It took me awhile, but I found my first shiny ever in Pearl. And it's actually a funny story.
I was EV training in the haunted house, and I randomly found a shiny Gastly (with sexy blue smoke, no less). I caught it, praised Arceus for my good fortune, and returned to the Pokemon Center.
Upon returning to the Pokemon Center, I received a message that I had never seen before: Nurse Joy told me that I had contracted Pokerus. So, not only had that Gastly been shiny, but it ALSO had Pokerus. If you're not aware, the odds for encountering a Pokemon with Pokerus are actually LOWER than the odds for encountering a shiny.
What are the freaking odds that I'd find one with BOTH? (Seriously, what are the odds? I'm sure there's some math master out there that can tell me. The odds of a shiny are 1/8192, and the odds of Pokerus are 3/65536. Get on that, math nerds.)
