Multiple blogs I have read of users coming across multiple random Shiny encounters in XY, yet I had not come across a single one ever since the release (and this while I have been lucky with them in the past). Until today, I randomly walked through the grass of Route 8 for no particular reason and came across a Wingull horde, and one of them was Shiny! Ironically, I am not the biggest fan of Wingull/Pelipper and had a Shiny Pelipper I obtained in a trade until days ago I traded it for something
Remember Farfetch'd? The weird duck Pokémon that you typically have to trade a long-runningly better Pokémon for*? Well, I think I have figured out a use for him, farfetched as it may sound (oh my god don't kill me).
Well, Farfetch'd learns four enhanced-critical hit moves (at least, according to Serebii, or at least last I checked, or at least in like Generation V). If he doesn't, stick Swords Dance in that last slot. Or maybe you should, anyway, as its Special Attack is lower
As of 12:14 AM February 19, 2014 I have finally completed the National Pokedex, for the first time ever. I said I would have done it before X and Y were released, but I didn't expect to have done it this soon since. I think it was a combination of Bank, over 450 Pokemon found in the Kalos region, and being able to look for Pokemon on the GTS that I hadn't seen yet. The final Pokemon to be registered was Beheeyem, and I offered one of my Ho-Oh's for it. There's still more to do though, as not all
