HeartGold: Pokéwalker went in the wash so am trying to get a new one. Finally beat Clair after levelling my whole squad up to 45 - 47.
Battling outside of the healing house near Victory Road, and encountered a shiny Ponyta.
Tried not to get too excited, and finally got it. It soon replaced Growlithe as my main Fire-type and has become the first shiny I've actually used in proper battles.
Now levelling up before the E4.
