    Default What do you do while breeding for shinies?

    I'm thinking of breeding for another shiny and I'd just like to get an idea how people pass the time while doing that. I imagine mostly watching TV. Reading a book doesn't seem feasible. Walking on a treadmill though, maybe. Too bad I don't have a treadmill.

    Last time I bread for a shiny, I was watching Firefly. But I don't feel like watching TV this time around. But I don't want to just be staring at my player character riding his bicycle back on forth the whole time; I can do that without looking at the screen.

    Watch TV, ride a stationary bike, do college work, masturbate, sometimes I close my eyes and listen for that sound that the game makes when your character runs into a wall. When I don't hear it I know it's time for an egg to hatch.

    During my last three MM's, I went to look for wild pokemon in case I should find a shiny, preferably in double encounter grass. That's how I ended up with a few of my shinies, like woobat, zangoose, and the failed tranquil.

    I thought as much. But I guess I did ask what everybody did to pass the time while breeding for shinies. The list of things one can do while biking back and forth along that river is small as it is.

    I watch Youtube Vlogs. I also do some of my Sapphire Nuzlocke, as well as watch my Simpson Seasons.
