    Nice, I been trying to find a female heracross but every time I find one, it's male and it ironic that I find a female pinsir which has a .25 rate of appear in the grotto. By the way, don't you mean the lost lorn hidden grotto?

    Oops, yes I do mean lostlorn ^_^;
    Yeah, the heracross I found was male too.

    Hidden grotto Pokemon can't be shiny. The only thing you can SR for is natures.

    Wow, nice job. The encounter rate for Heracross (W2) and Pinsir (B2) is crazy.

    0.25% encounter rate, and you've only got a 5% chance of encountering a Hidden Hollow in the first place. Which means for every 256 steps you take (the regenerating number or w/e), you've got a juicy 0.000125% chance of finding Heracross or Pinsir. Which is a 1/8000 chance, if I've calculated it correctly. That's pretty insane.

    Nearly the same chance as encountering a shiny! That is insane.

    I have Black 2.

    The first time I reached Lostlorn, I immediately went to the Hidden Hollow. Pinsir is already waiting for me.
    Talk about lucky.

    Can you stand outside the Grottos and SR for the pokemon you want, or are they preset per day?

    They're set as soon as the grotto decides to spawn. The only way you could ever SR for anything that spawns in there is to save at an empty grotto and walk around until it spawns.

    I'm hunting for a female minccino with skill link... it kinda feels like shiny hunting. except you can re-produce these pokemon through eggs, and it's less satisfying, but just as annoying!

    if you're going to do that you may as well RNG the hollow.

    I think the hidden grotto is cool, purely because I got a bagon which is now a moxie salamence (which I have no other way of getting) and I love that thing so much. Other than that, I haven't found the grotto very useful :/

    My most useful grotto has probably been Regenerator Foonguss

    I suppose Analytic Watchog might be useful if I decide to go with a team of regional rodents for the Normal Type medal

    Anybody else think that there should've been some kind of feature in the game that told the player whether or not a Hidden Grotto generated new spawn?

    Just got a female Leavanny from Lostlorn. Overcoat is novel, I suppose.
    At least it wasn't a Combee.


    Also, it held a Mental Herb! So lucky me, I suppose; I've never caught a Swadloon or Sewaddle holding one.

    Speaking of Combee, that was the first Pokémon I found in a hollow on W2. Fortunately, it was female, even though Unnerve is still pretty useless.

    Just be glad that even if it were a Combee that it'd still most likely be female. (:

    If it was a Combee, it most likely will be a male instead

    Combee has 12.5% chance to be female, compared to Leavanny's 50% chance to be female.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    5% for HG Combee ;) Leavanny is 30% for female.

    So far, I have found only a few of the rarer Grotto Pokemon, the most awesome being Heracross. Otherwise, I found Pachirisu (many times), Medicham (many times), Venonat (many times), Bibarel, Garbodor, Liepard, Mincinno, Foonguss (many times), Amoonguss (a couple times), Zangoose (twice), Clefairy (twice), Kingler and probably some others. Still hoping to find the elusive Ditto. A Poliwhirl or Vulpix would be nice, too.

    I like the idea of finding different pokémons (and items) in the Hidden Grottos, but I never pay attention to the trees when I'm passing.

    I only found 2 until now. D:

    I love to collect hidden abilities, don't care if most of them are useless, I just like to collect them. The hidden grottos are awesome. Didn't get much from it yet, just two "DWfemale" Foongus. And a DWf Pachirisu. I'm hoping to get my hands on an Impostor ditto, technician breloom and swift swim beartic (can't remember cubchoo's hidden ability).

    I'm also trying to get ditto and breloom. And an Eevee wouldn't hurt either
