Lol, sorry! I just thought that maybe you should be prepared! Hey, they might not have a second Eeveelution this time around, but it seems likely that they might! Good luck with them all!

I think that's all since my last post! Well done!
Also, thanks for the responses to my question. I realise I never answered my own question, but my intentions are definitely to try and get a shiny Chespin and a shiny Yveltal in the future. I really hope that Game Freak doesn't pull some shiny lock thing again. I think it's kind of unnecessary. While it's debateable why Zekrom and Reshiram have a shiny lock, I don't really understand why Victini had one due to how it was encountered. Hopefully Xerneas and Yveltal are different to Zekrom and Reshiram. And yes, you do wonder whether Chespin's shiny form is worth it, so let's hope it is, and not like Garchomp 2 or something!
Also, thanks for the well wishes about my ankle/foot. I have had to go to hospital twice more to get another xray and ultrasound. Thankfully it's not broken, but I have done some damage to ligaments or something, although the ultrasound didn't pick anything up due to the fact that there was still too much swelling even now! Ah well! Just have to work on strengthening it again, I suppose!
So, yes, I'm posting again ... So, what did I get?
Well, let's just say my Badge Quest is totally legit and balanced again now! 120 in game hours after shiny Spinarak, I finally caught another shiny! I'm really sorry that I don't know the specific amount of encounters, but I find it hard to count them, as I feel it makes it drag on and brings too much attention to what I'm doing, instead of just mindlessly wandering around in the grass. I made a note of what time I started hunting for this shiny, and as the days went on and on I thought that I'd get it any moment now, surely. But it never seemed to happen. And the hours went on ... and on. I began to think I wouldn't get anything, and then I began to get paranoid, thinking I must have missed a shiny or something! Even though I'm so careful to make sure I look at each and every encounter, and have the music up, it still played on my mind that I had possibly skipped one. But I know that this was just my brain making things up, because I really would have noticed it, I'm 99% positive.
Anyway, last night I turned the game on after one of my usual resets to shake up the frames a bit, and I hunted for an hour. I then realised that I could watch a TV show I missed earlier that night on the tv stations website, so I settled down to watch that. However, I found I was having a little difficulty trying to focus on both the DS screen and my laptop screen. I almost turned the DS off, but I thought to myself, "Nah, you'll never get it if you stop." and so I just kept on going, placing the DS right in front of the laptop so that I could see the sparkles if I didn't see the shiny straight away.
At around 12:30, I glanced down to see a green tail, and the sparkles appeared soon after! My heart skipped a beat, but I just recall this immediate sense of relief washing over me. Finally I can move on with my game, and finally I don't have to think I've wasted 120 hours for nothing! Also, I felt relieved that I hadn't given up for the night, or missed a shiny during this hunt.
Not sure on the name just yet, but Zappi might stick!
So, yay~! Except that little so and so! She was holding something when I talked to her, and she refused to hand it over ... I'm not very happy with her right now! Looks like she has a bit of a streak thing going ...
Now, just making it clear, I'm extremely happy, but this was actually my third choice for the route I was on. First was Girafarig, next was Noctowl, then Flaaffy/Mareep, and then Venonat. But I would have been happy with any of them. Anyway, time to move on and see more of this game ... and work out what the next hunt will be.
Good luck to you all! Happy hunting! Thanks for reading.
