Ahahaha, honestly even if you did get shiny Chimchar before me I wouldn't have minded at all. Such is the game of shiny hunting, you never know when you're going to get your shiny, and everybody's hunting experience ends up being totally different as a result of it all being beyond our control! Thanks a bunch for the congrats btw ^.^ The video's up on my Youtube channel if anybody wishes to view it!I've been worried the time since I started going after Chimchar that I'd get it before you in a really low number of SRs, so I'm glad I don't have to worry about that because I'd have felt really guilty >.< Especially since I have yet to do a hunt that's gone over the odds. Not to mention I don't really even like the Chimchar line;_;
Also, huge congrats to Lunafloon on Pidove, cocoadragon on Steelix (that thing is absolutely GORGEOUS, one day I will get it and make up for the Onix "fail" from 2010!), Master Leo on Aron, Shiny Lord on Slowpoke, and everybody else who managed to succeed on getting such wonderful shinies! Only 6 days in and we're already opening the floodgates when it comes to shinies! On another note, I uploaded shiny Chimchar onto PBR to check it's IVs, and they're surprisingly beastly! Here they are:
Special Attack: 28-29
Special Defense: 4-5
It's definitely going to end up as a strong physical attacker with those IVs and the Impish nature! Additionally on a more comical note, I placed it in a test battle against my big bad shiny EV trained Blaziken, yet because of how absolutely atrocious PBR's AI is, the untouched level 5 Chimchar managed to defeat Blaziken due to the latter constantly spamming Focus Punch! On a hunting note I've also begun to hunt for shiny Turtwig on Platinum, as I've traded Chimchar to Diamond and restarted the file. Aiming to cram as many SRs into the bank holiday Monday as I can while simutaneously balancing revision into it, and I'm currently at around 180 SRs, getting up early just so I could hunt as much as possible! Just hoping this is a normal length hunt and isn't quite as frustrating as Chimchar was!
