  1. Before I go to see my folks, just a quick message to wish all of you a Merry Christmas, or whichever holiday you celebrate. Hope you have the best day, and all the best towards the new year.

  2. GUYS! Shiny Alolan Vuplix. I'm taking a break from Poipole, and decided to carry on with the main story, and on my way to E4 I found a random Vuplix. Almost spammed A to one shot it, but glad I noticed the sparkle. It looks no different to a normal one.

  3. Soft resetting for a Shiny Poipole. Wish me luck! On 41 tries so far. :)

    1. Nomyt


      300+ resets so far, and nil shiny.

    2. Nomyt


      I have officially lost count, but I think I'm nearing a 1000.

  4. Why do so many trainers have only one pokemon!?! Like Seriously!!!

      Jewelwriter Moonstar

      Trust me, it's a pain at times to find a 1 trainer Mon. At least one can hope it's a high stat Poke.

  5. I'm getting my copies of USuMo in less than 8 hours!! It's apparently live on the Download service.

  6. Shiny Panpour in Friend Safari on X. I really need to move all my shinies from X and OR over to Moon.

  7. On the 50th egg, shiny grubbin get!!

  8. 223 eggs for shiny caterpie, 2 shiny growlithe and a shiny Magnemite (all found while hatching eggs. Get in!)


  9. It's been over six months since getting my last shiny (Litten through MM+SC breeding), I've hatched billions of Popplio eggs (as some of you may know.) A couple of days ago I got two new shinies (not counting tapu koko) a Sandygast, and a Pikipek, both in the wild while trying to hatch eggs. Very happy as once I got my Popplio, Pikipek was next. :D

  10. I'm sure everyone knows, but don't forget to get Shiny Tapu Koko.


  11. I thought shiny charm was suppose to help shiny hunting/breeding. Still not had a Popplio, Caterpie, or Pikipek. And talk about taking ages to get rid of non-shinies!! Gah!!!!


  12. Okay, I got a switch. Nintendo, please announce Stars....


  13. Darn it. I think I used all my shiny luck with Rowlett and Litten, Caterpie has also taken over 12 boxes & counting. (And I can't get rid of the extras by wondertrade) :( Please Shiny Arceus, shiny some luck on me please.

    1. PokemonKing16


      By the Power of Shiny Arceus, I grant you a better chance of getting a Shiny!

  14. Given up on shiny popplio for the time being. On to the next shiny pokemon. Breeding Caterpies. Not really going in dex order anymore. But I prefer this shiny to Pikipek's


  15. 12 boxes and counting, still no shiny popplio. My bad luck returns. Shiny charm and Masuda method. May skip thing one and go try another poke.

      I didnt know that isn't a thing. Now I'm regretting all the stuff I've hatched.

    3. Nomyt


      Same. It feels like ages doing one box. 5 boxes feels like forever!


    4. Nomyt


      @Aurora Fae Yeah, it would have to be really obvious that you would be mass deleting stuff. Maybe rather than one back out of deleting. It might be a good idea to give two back outs.
      So you'd select the pokemon, hit release. "You are now releasing these pokemon, and are not gonna get them back. Are you sure? Yes. No. You really want to release these pokemon? Yes. No." Kinda like how you can't accidently refuse to pick up an egg.


  16. 4 Boxes of Baby Popplio's and counting. Still no shiny. GahHHH!

      Yeah, I know. I know, but it's strange after getting Rowlett and Litten within 40 eggs, so now are 120+ eggs. Starting to get tired of seeing Popplios :P Then again, I hate to think how many axews I hatched over in X took me 2 years to hatch a shiny! (I had no shiny charm back then.)

    3. PokemonKing16


      Two YEARS?!!! Holy shit that's a long time. What method are you using? Masuda or the newer egg manipulation method?

    4. Nomyt


      I was using Masuda. I usually managed to hatch about one shiny a month after that saga.  I just have reallllly bad luck.

      Finding wild shinies have been even worse! I first shiny was a wild lickitung in the original Gold, and then didn't see another one until X! Which was also a shiny Lickitung!

  17. Shiny charm is working, only been breeding for a day, and already have a shiny litten and shiny Rowlett from Masuda Method. So happy.

    1. SyupendousStufful101


      WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so lucky! maybe we could trade sometime. I have over half a box of shinies, and over a box of legendaries. take your pick. :)

    2. Nomyt


      Sorry, My shinies are never for trade. :D I'm going for a living shiny dex.

    3. SyupendousStufful101


      what are some shinies that you need? I might have 'em.

  18. You don't want a Pheromosa! You wanted a Drampa! What's wrong with you GTS....good news is that I got my Kartana, and still have by three other Pheromosas. xD But what to trade them for....


  19. I've nearly done the Melemele dex. Only got most of the happiness evos to go. Gah! Always take sooooo long!

    1. Oza


      I've been at 99% for Melemele and Poni for a few days now. I'm stuck on all the trade evolutions that need items.

    2. Nomyt


      Done my melemele dex now. The only happiness ones I need are espeon and umbreon. Everything else I think needs stones. I had most of the items to trade stuff, all I did was to stick that poke on gts with said trade item, and then ask for the evo. If you're missing that trade item, just go find out where it is, and do it.

  20. Switch looks great, kinda strange that nothing was said about Stars.

  21. So who's completed the Alolan Dex? I'm finding it quite the long challenge. Currently at 61% overall.

    1. Wes


      I finished about a week after I got the game. (I was on break, so I had plenty of time)

    2. Aurora Fae

      Aurora Fae

      I just finished it this past week and it was brutal let me tell you

    3. Oza


      I'm at about 80 or so. Mostly just version exclusives and trade evolutions left.

  22. 3 hours, used loads of leppa berries, and super potions, but still no Shiny through SOS Caterpie battle. Danggggg! I heard that the average shiny time is like 2 hours. :(

  23. I still can't get to grips with SOS shiny hunting...does shiny charm help or not?

  24. Possible SuMon spoilers, please click with care........
    Is it just me, or is the Elite Four is a little tougher. Palossand is tough, same with most of Hala's team (Crabominable, and Bewear, specially.),  worse thing is that I have 6+ levels on everything!

    2. PokemonKing16


      Which 'Mon are you having trouble with specifically?

    3. Nomyt


      Crabrawler, and Bewear were the problem pair. Managed to get Mudsdales stamina up so that I could survive the hits. Love that horse.

    4. Ascension


      I have to agree, I fainted more times during the story of this game than I have in my past handful of previous runs combined. Granted Decidueye, Lycanroc, and Salazzle aren't bulky Pokemon, and I couldn't be using my Golisopod all of the time. I ended up replacing Zygarde 50% Forme for Alolan Ninetails, further adding to my team's fragility. In the end Solgaleo ended up delivering the final blow to the Champion, and it was far too close - it was my last living 'mon. 

  25. 23:54 into Pokémon Moon. Done the second Grand Trial. Loving it still.
