I (Still) Hate Poke Transfer

Rate this Entry
A few nights ago, someone offered up yet another shiny Golett. The asking price was a Lugia, any Lugia. Since I had a spare, I figured I could trade.

Yeah, about that.... The spare was on one of my Third Gen carts. That meant going through both a Pal Park and a Poke Transfer. Not fun.

The Pal Park half didn't take terribly long; I did get hung up when the last Pokemon of the set took its sweet time showing its face. But once that one was caught, I got started on the second leg of the journey.

You know, I thought transferring a Deoxys was hard but Lugia's worse. He never wants to show his face until the last few seconds. In fact, he hamstrung me so badly that I begged Prime to catch him.

It took Prime less than a second to nail him. Seriously, two shots and he was done. The man makes it look easy, I tell you.

Said Lugia stayed in my party about two minutes, if even that. I tracked down the Golett and happily made the trade. I swear, I think I'm the only one who is happy to surrender a Legendary just to get a shiny Golett. Man, those little guys just have me wrapped around their flat little fingers!

I don't think I'd have it any other way.

    Yeah, you're probably right. I've seen level 100 shiny Golurks disappear in 15 minutes while a shiny Golett can languish on the GTS for a day easily. It's like no one wants to grab them and do the work of evolving. (Hey, fine with me. I likes my shiny robotic army.)

    I've even given up a level 100 Arceus to get a shiny Golett. I have zero regrets.

    You'll give up a Genesect for a Golett or Golurk. Just saying, not trying to offend you.

    Yeah, I would. And I wouldn't think twice about it. I do love my Automatons. <3
