I'm trying to make sure I transfer over everything I need into X in the short term before my Bank subscription runs out, and I have just about everything I need, except for a few Hidden Ability Pokemon that I want to keep on hand for trades. The problem is that I don't have a complete grasp on which ones are valuable. So here's the ones that I'm unsure about: Rattata
Okay, either I'm the luckiest SOB on earth or the shiny encounter rate is a lot more noticeable this time, because in the last 2 weeks or so I've gotten 6 shinies. 6. All by random encounter. I haven't even been playing this game very long and I've already broken a personal record for shinies (I did get like, 4 or so in SoulSilver, but not anywhere near within this timeframe). At this rate I'm going to have a box full by the time I get bored of this game. I think this'll probably be the last time
Jesus Christ. So after I caught that shiny Toxicroak last night, I went back to that Friend Safari because I'm trying to get a HA Garbodor.

But by far what's more interesting about this rumor is that it's supposed to be for a new console, which presents some neat ideas about what next gen may be like.
The rumor specifies a new Nintendo console
