I've got this save file with over 200 hours on SoulSilver. As soon as I get a transfer done, I will be restarting the file.
Currently, with all of the stuff on there, the 3 legendary birds have not been seen/captured yet. I am now soft resetting to try to get a shiny articuno - But I'm debating whether to just catch the plain birds for dex on white, because doing this for multiple days does not sound appealing, and If I did it for articuno, I'd want to do it for the other two as well... and that could take a week or more.
So what I'm asking is - would anyone consider it "worth it" to continue to hunt for shiny birds, or would it be in my best interest to go along my merry way and continue to hunt as many pokemon as I can for the purposes of up'ing my white 1 pokedex? I suppose I'm asking myself this, but I'd like to know opinions.
I guess I need to hear someone else say "it's okay stop hunting" before I can do it without feeling like I'm missing something.
Is there a demand for shiny (legit) birds?
