Holy crap, I just hatched a shiny Weedle! I have been trying since last October, on and off. Sometimes it felt like my hobby wasn’t so much playing Pokémon as fruitless Weedle farming. She is, for the the record, Weedle #2002. (Yes, I was using the Masuda method. My previous shiny hunt record was 728. Maybe I did something to anger Arceus.)

The worst part is that actively dislike Weedles and had to stare at literally thousands of them. The best part is that SHINY BEEDRILL IS MINE. Well, she will be when I evolve her tomorrow, anyway. Then I just need to EV train her, stuff her full of rare candy, teach her a couple of tutor moves and finally import her to Sun. Then I can put my X and Sapphire cartridges away for good! Maybe I’ll get around to finishing my next shiny breeding project before the end of November.

... right after I release another thousand Weedles into the endless void.

(I am crossposting this from Tumblr, because anyone who cares about this probably reading there not here, but I know I am going to want to be able to check the details myself some day and Tumblr is awful about letting you look up old posts. Anyway, carry on.)
