I got the game yesterday and caught a caterpie, then trained until it was a butterfree then spammed confusion. But when Brock's onix used bide I used confusion one more time, then switched out for a pidgey and used it as a sacrifice. It was pretty easy.
I've finally got the shiny charm if that is what it is called.
I have completed the national dex,
I will take requests from people to breed shiny pokemon for you.
you must have wi-fi though to trade.
My first pokemon I bred to test the shiny charm was a trapinch, that came in after 31 eggs.
PM me for requests.
Request list (showing top 5 pokemon to breed)
if your pokemon is not there then I have not got to it yet (I put them in the order I got the request)
Ready to be traded + person to be traded to
