It’s time for redemption.

In November 2020 I started a Blacephalon hunt in the Crown Tundra in Pokemon Shield. After struggling for AGES through dozens upon dozens of DAs, I got the shiny late in the evening on December 17th, 2020…

In the wrong ball.

In the fateful, shiny Lair, I misclicked, and caught the Blacephalon in a Repeat Ball. I was, and STILL AM, incredibly salty that it HAPPENED to be shiny in THAT lair. I wanted my shiny Blacephalon in a Dusk Ball… but the Lairs had a different idea.

Of course, I had to take it, because a shiny is a shiny, even if it’s in the wrong ball.

However, after playing with a particular idea in my head for weeks, I decided to double down and go for a second chance.

I went into Pokemon Home, where most of my living dex I had pulled together when I filled my Shield pokedex resides. I then moved every Pokemon I had in Home that had been caught in Pokemon Sword and Shield into my copy of Pokemon Sword.

That got my Sword Pokedex up to 380 out of 400, so I then went and caught the last 20 Pokemon I needed and…

With the Shiny Charm obtained, I grabbed the Blacephalon route from a good friend, determined to finish what I started.

Of course, I knew I couldn’t take ANY chances of repeating my prior mistake. So…

image

I sold ALMOST every Pokeball I had (though I had a few apricorn balls from my initial playthrough, so I gave those to some of my Pokemon to hold) and bought as many Dusk Balls as I could.

If this means I have to catch every pokemon I encounter in the Lairs in a Dusk Ball, so be it. This isn’t about phases. This is about finishing this hunt right.

Wish me luck.

Pokemon of the day 27/365

  • 🇬🇧 Axew
  • 🇫🇷 Coupenotte
  • 🇩🇪 Milza (in Italian this word means an internal body’s organ😅)

Okay… I don’t know why I like Axew…

I had it on a Pokemon game and evolved to Fraxure and then Horcrux…ehm…Haxorus…

But I rarely used it anyway

And on PoGo I can’t find one them, it’s very rare :(, I just got one Axew from exchange between trainer but it was bad 🙄

Anyway, I think axew is a little very cutieee dragon, just a dragon, nothing more, nothing less, no other types, nor the evolutions, great moves, great potential, maybe one of the strongest, maybe

But if you can use another dragon, you use the other

On PoGo for sure, maybe in other games too

Such a shame but it is still very cutie 😍

The Rotom Resistance cont.

Ofc when I was planning my team I KNEW I had to include a terrain setter. I just wasn’t sure yet what my options looked like- I wasn’t against using Pincurchin (such a cute little pincushion) but knew there was a certain legend that would do an even better job.

Thankfully the league I’m in allows any Pokemon whose base stat total is under 600, and Tapu Koko fits that bill! I’m so excited to use my favorite legendary Pokemon (and favorite legendary SHINY) on my team! Fun fact, Tapu Koko was the first legendary I hunted when the Crown Tundra/Dynamax Adventures came out, and I got it quickly too!

Two team members down, eight to go! Don’t forget to keep an eye out over the next few weeks as I introduce the rest of the Rotom Resistance before the League I’m taking part in starts!

Hello tumblr!! Been a couple weeks, but not because I haven’t been hunting! This is the result! I’ve been SRing for this boi solidly everyday since my pichu hunt! It’s officially my longest hunt ever!

I FINALLY got him after 4067(!!!!) resets on Ultra sun. Bearing in mind I DO have the shiny charm so this was crazy over odds!!

I named him Chronos after the Greek Titan god if time. He is possibly one of my most precious shinies I’ve ever hunted.

A big massive hearty welcome to the shiny family, Chronos!

EDIT: I know in the picture it says Chronus which is not the correct spelling but I did later change his name to Chronos

Tonight, we celebrate the underdogs that rarely get the spotlight on this blog; whether it’s because they’re easily forgotten, have shiny colors that displease me, or are so butt-ugly that I want to hurl every time I look at them. Yes, I was looking at you when I said that last part, Crabominable.

For the next 24+ hours, I will be wonder trading these shinies out. If you receive one of my shinies off of Wonder Trade, be sure to submit a photo of it. Doing so will net you a couple bonus shinies!

Good luck and happy wonder trading!

I’m gonna go cry bc I’ve been shiny hunting Cyndaquil for over a year now and I finally have it-

I’ve caught over 200 Cyndaquil today alone and randomly caught this one right before a raid.

So my lovely friend 🖤 traded me a shiny Meltan for a Hitmontop (I hate that annoying thing 🤬) and evolved it into a Melmetal, ironically I now no longer have enough stardust to power it up 🤣

135 eggs, way faster than I was expecting. I wanted a male to evolve into amped toxtricity & name after the guitarist of my favorite band, but I needed toxel anyway so I’m super pleased! Toxel’s line have quickly become some of my favorite pokemon.

Named after the candy. I have a sorta trend of naming my cutesy, unevolved pokemon after candy lol. She’s adorable and i love her 🥺🥺🥺

302 hordes, 4th horde shiny on this route. Probably gonna move on now.

Named after Pepe le pew. Thought abt evolving him, but he’s too cute as a stunky. Anyway this is a really good shiny, i never realized how nice it looks. Such a pretty, vibrant pink-purple color!
