I've evolved him into Alakazam and stuck with Hocus for his nickname, which I'm sure is a very original name, but it just stuck to him in the end. Thanks for your suggestions as usual, Papousse.
And thanks for the clarification of my Badge Quest, guys! It feels great to have completed a Badge Quest, even if it was a little bit messy. On the other hand, my White 2 Badge Quest isn't so messy or "lopsided" as my HG one. And yes, I'm back with another shiny!
It's not really an amazing story or anything, but after 5758 REs, I heard the sparkles this morning when I was surfing the net. I actually really wanted to see the shiny appear, so I made sure to check as many of the encounters as they were first appearing as possible. But there were also plenty of times where I was just going through the motions and listening to hear the sparkles, and it decided to shine when I was merely listening, so I missed the entire thing other than the very last second when the sparkles were disappearing! But it was such a nice sound to hear, anyway. After my last hunt on this game, I wasn't really expecting anything to appear so soon. I mean, it was still under the odds, so it was a welcome change from my Woobat hunt.
She's now level 47. I wasn't a massive fan of her shiny form when I first saw it on Serebii, etc, but I do have to admit that it looks much better in game. I do think her eye area is a little odd, but I've gotten used to it and it looks a lot better in motion. I think that they were maybe wanting to give the shiny form a sort of typical crocodile colouration or something like that, and while I love Krookodile's normal colour, I have grown to like the shiny form on its own, too.
I had planned out my next target in this Badge Quest, but I soon realised that there's a road block along the way, in the form of a man telling me to grab the next badge before heading to the PWT and it looks like I have had to go somewhere else instead now. I have chosen a spot and I've been encountering there for a couple of hours already. A veteran trainer nearly handed my butt to me with his level 51 Pokémon, and I really was not expecting it! It was a combination of pretty amusing and devastating to see my team be thumped and bashed to pieces by some random grandpa standing on a cliff.
Anyway, good luck to everyone, especially those over the odds!
