I'm officially a member of BMGF for four years! I can't really believe this... although here is the first forum I ever joined. Weird to think that I was ten years old when I came here posting about sprites - it feels like so much longer. I may not post much any more, but this is still my go-to place to read discussions on different aspects of the Pokémon games. Keep being a great forum.
EDIT: And with the posting of this blog, my age, posts and blog entries only contain the digits 1 and
For the first time for me, the Masuda Method worked. And manifested itself as a shiny Charmander (Charizard, here I come!):
What I really couldn't believe is that I'd only been trying for less than an hour and this hatched on my tenth egg. It even has a Timid nature (but then they all do because of the father's everstone), above average IVs and perfect Defense.
