    The hidden ability Eevee is a special event hidden grotto mission. He is not avaliable at this time.

    While trying to find a Gligar (odds of 2000/1), I encounter a shiny (odds of 8192/1).

    I think the game is trolling me a bit!

    It must've not been in a grotto since that would be impossible, I'd rather take a shiny over a grotto pokemon though

    Yeah, it was just outside in some shaking grass. Should've made that clear! While estactic (as it was my 1st), I'm a bit annoyed that they gave me a shiny when I wasn't looking!

    I find it kind of silly how low the odds of encountering some of the grotto Pokemon are when you can find them so easily in the Dream World by comparison.

    That would be the likely reason why they're so rare, or so common, respectively.

    I played a bit on my White 2 for the first time since last year, and went to see if anything was waiting for me in the Giant Chasm grotto (I've been looking for a Ditto for a while now)

    Walked in, and found a Metang waiting for me. Not what I wanted, but way better than nothing or Clefairy.

    Well, actually, Clefairy would probably be better, due to it not having an entirely useless DW ability.

    I already met at least half a dozen Clefairy, that's why I say that. At least, Metang is something new

    No luck with the Hidden Grottoes as of late . All I've been running into for the most part are items.
    Looking forward to the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.



    Will be training up the shiny Abra I have that's named Robin in honor of you. May you R.I.P.

    found a female Bibarel on Rt 3 yesterday, after i failed at getting a satisfactory nature after a few resets, i just took whatever it gave me ( think it was serious natured...) i've been having great luck with finding females, but i don't feel like SRing a million times...methinks i need some sychronizers...they do work in the grottoes, don't they?

    All I've found lately is mulch. But then again, I haven't really been checking the Hidden Grottoes.

    Where you getting this 2000/1 odds from? There's a 1% chance of finding a Gligar there.

    rode back and forth between the grotto in the outer section of pinwheel forest and the one on route 18 for a few hours last night. found a chatot (so cute) and currently SRing for a jolly/naive bagon with ivs i can bring home to mother. it's male, so no DD moxie outrageousness for me just yet. but still... he should be quite formidable.

    good luck on your searches, guys.

    i've fooled around with one, but since i did go with a speed nature, my mence doesn't have the power sometimes to get the moxie boost after its first turn in battle. i've got a life orb on it now... putting it out against things i know it can outspeed.

    I have spent a good 4 days grinding the route 23 hidden grotto for gligar. I have been biking nonstop and have gotten every pokemon from that grotto multiple times I dont even bother catching them anymore. The only time I got relatively close to catching (or at least seeing one) was when I got a fire stone. Since firestones are like a 1% chance I felt like it was the closest I got to gligar. Has anyone else spent a long time trying to get a pokemon? Did you actually get it?

    Also I must say that I am new to the whole competitive pokemon battling. I had no idea what ivs or evs were. I'm guessing when I catch this gligar I should cross my fingers it is female so I can breed it like crazy to get good ivs right? From what I read only 2 stats can be 31 correct? I'm so confuse :s

    Every stat can have a 31 IV, but without RNG abuse it's not likely at all (1 in 30,000ish odds iirc). But yes, you can soft-reset for good IVs/nature, although if it's male, it'll never be female through soft-resetting.
