    I don't think getting the Pokemon you want would be too hard. Took me a few minutes to get a DW Ditto to appear in the Giant Chasm area. 200 something steps is not too hard to get, and you can pretty much control which Hidden Hollow (used to this name more) generates a Pokemon.

    How are you in any way able to control which Hidden Grotto generates a Pokemon? To my knowledge, there is a 5% chance for each Grotto to respawn upon 256 steps(If it doesn't respawn then you'll have to take another 256 steps), I believe there is a pass power to help increase the chance of something appearing, which I don't think applies to only Pokemon anyways. But I don't see how any of that gives you any power in which Grotto gives you what, it all comes down to luck. There are going to be people who get what they want on the first go, there's going to be people who are at it for days.

    by the way, you CAN soft reset for Nature. I suggest you to save before capturing next time you get a Pokemon in a grotto, you might not going to be that lucky again.

    Only if that Pokémon is female and you're not breeding it with ditto, then the baby has a 60% chance of having the hidden ability.

    Found a nice surprise the other night, a Bagon! I was pretty excited about that. I also found a Leavanny, which is nice as well...

    After getting five male Mienfoo from the route 22 grotto, I got sick of my bad luck and decided to just trade for some level 1 female Mienfoo, hoping one of them would have the Reckless ability.

    Ended up getting one after two trades.

    but getting it from the DW means we won't have to waste the shards for Seviper, and can use the shards for another Pokemon that needs them more

    If it was actually hard to get shards, that might be a valid argument.

    While I was waiting for the old man to tell me an egg showed up, I took a small detour to Route 3's hidden grotto, and met a Manectric. I was hoping for a Pachirisu, but considering the odds, I'm still happy.

    Plus an egg showed up while I was in the grotto. All is good

    I don't care what people think about it, I prefer to get it for free.

    Bless ya buddy. By the way just so you know you can get a Legitimate Shiny Mew from Pokemon Ranch after fulfilling...some kind of requirement which I can't remember but it does carry the usual rate.

    I'm trying to get a shiny Giratina in platinum but so far no joy.

    Unfortunately, I don't think that I've found any Pokemon in Hidden Grotto throughout the game. Oh well.

    Yes, you'll be able to get DW eggs.

    Complaining about it doesn't make it any less rare.
