I just had the single luckiest thing happen to me in my entire Pokemon career, ever since playing Gen 1 as a child.
I just caught Azelf himself...SHINY...Jolly nature, Alert to Sounds. My first instinct was to just mater-ball it, but I knew it didn't have any kind of Roar attack so I just used patience and eventually got it with an Ultra ball (It's currently 11:00 so no chance of Dusk Balls being effective).
Just ran it through the IV calculator and it's got a 31 Speed IV. It's other stats are less than ideal since I was hoping to use the Azelf competitively, but since it's a freaking shiny and the first one I've even seen on this cartridge, I don't care. For those curious - 9 hp (ugh), 15 attack, 24 defense, 10 SP. Attack, 25 SP. Defense, and 31 Speed.
I figure worst comes to worst I could probably trade it for an IV-superior Azelf that's non-shiny since I don't particularly like the alt-colors, but still - I just can't believe my luck in getting this. I had only spent like an hour or so trying to get it - too.
I'm a Pokemon Breeder and Battler who enjoys thinking outside the box and using nonstandard combinations. I never play Singles and prefer Triples and Doubles battles.

When not playing games I'm a published writer of Science Fiction and Children's Fantasy; this is my true passion and what I hope to do for the rest of my life.
