[spoilers] New Sword and Shield Pokemon! GEN 8!


#687

I need Gengar and Snorlax shiny. Have a green Machamp allready.


#688

I now have both and some spare ones of them for trade. :stuck_out_tongue:


#689

Yeah, I got Machamp and Gengar pretty quickly. I might shiny hunt again soon-ish, but right now I’m enjoying playing through the old games. After Y, I’m probably going to play through ORAS.


#690

I’ve had some great success getting Gigantimax Machamp and Gigantimax Gengar caught. Normally, it takes me a few tries, but both were first-time catches, and 5IVs too.


#691

Finished grinding through Pokemon Y (man, what a laughably easy game, even by Pokemon standards lol) and am now going to roll through Alpha Sapphire.

Playing Pokemon: My version of self distancing. :smiley:


#692

I am currently doing a Pokemon alpha sapphire 9 shiny run

1 shiny before each gym and before the elite four

Currently hunting for shiny Latios before Winona.

I have already got shiny lotad (lombre), makuhita (hariyama), zubat (crobat), numel and zigzagon


#693

You’re a mad man. lol


#694

I have encountered over 3000 Latios over four months now lol. Still no shiny one


#695

Picked up SwSh again, tried out a rental team and got up to Rank 7 (lost 2 matches in a row though)


#696

Pulled myself away from Animal Crossing (and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 … new DLC dropped!) long enough to do the current G-Max raids. :smiley:


#697

So, this just happened … lol …


#698

FINALLYYY
My first shiny besides the hatched Dragapult, G-Max Charizard

Dayum, Solar Power and timid nature too!
Holy Miltank it also has 6IVs


#699

I’ve been insanely lucky in this game.

  • 6IV stat Gigantimax Duraludon
  • 6IV Shiny Ditto
  • Shiny Sirfetch’d
  • Shiny Gigantimax Drednaw
  • Shiny Wishiwashi (without Shiny Charm)
  • Shiny Escavalier
  • Shiny Goodra

All but one of those were within the last ten days, and that’s not including that I’ve caught every single Gigantimax-capable Pokemon with at least 5IVs. Sadly, a Shiny Gigantimax Lapras got away. :’(


#700

Ive managed to absolutely choke a battle by overestimating Duraludon’s special defense, Im so mad at myself :joy::joy:

(Duraludon and Whimsicott vs Whimsicott and Charizard, I hoped to live a Solar Power G-Max Wildfire and Fake Tears the Zard before OHKOing instead of going for the obvious Max Guard + Tailwind and then Fake Tears + Max Lightning to beat it)
