    Have you scavenged through the tall grass searching for that one Pokemon with a 1% chance of coming out?
    Spent countless hours chaining and failing to find that shiny?
    Hatched 1000's of eggs to get a shiny?
    Got stuck in a cave while trying to find where a legendary Pokemon is?
    Do tell!
    I remember spending 3 hours searching for a stupid Relicanth in Emerald. It was a nightmare...
    And it took me over a year of unsuccessful attempts to chain to finally get a shiny.
    What about you?

    I spent more than an hour looking for Eevee in Castelia, I found the right place with grass in the sewers. All I found was a Whimsicott. You know what's annoying? I already had a Cottonee and Whimsicott's encounter rate is the same as Eevee's, 5%. I hate this.

    I just spent over 30 minutes looking for a stupid Duxtox on route 229, which has a 5% encounter rate. While searching, I encountered 4 Pidgeys and 2 Beautiflys, all of which have the same 5% encounter rate.wtf.
    I never found a Duxtox, I just gave up and went to route 205 to get a Cascoon and evolve it :p

    It took me quite a while to find Chimecho on Mt. Pyre in Ruby. Incidentally, I found Feebas in about 5 minutes.

    I would also spend ages walking around in Viridian Forest looking for the level 9 Pidgeotto in Yellow.

    Chimecho in Saphire. Then I finally found one and accidentally killed it. Than I spent another hour until I found next one.


    If I make some stupid grammar mistake, I´m terribly sorry and feel free to correct me.

    Lots of stuff in Hoenn. Grimer, Ralts, Chimecho, and oh yeah, FEEBAS. Emerald was a tough thing to catch 'em all on.

    I spent over a year off and on resetting for a shiny Mesprit to complete my Sinnoh shiny lake trio.
    I spent a lot of time on Emerald trying to find Feebas tiles and I eventually did, but it's tiresome to go from tile to tile fishing for Feebas. I think it took a couple hours.

    Oh yeah. In fact, still at it.

    Trying to find a Grimer in Fiery Path in Emeral to finish off the Pokedex. 2% chance to find it and Been at it for Weeks now.

    Funny thing is, I found one once Long ago back when I first got Emerald but didn't think much of it. Then I traded it off to my Diamond (which I didn't need to do) without evolving it so now I'm stuck with no Muk!

    EDIT: Up Date. Finally Found one! Last Pokemon that doesn't require a Trade or Cheat to get.

    When trying to register every PKMN in Black, I needed a Jellicent. I had two choices; level it up or catch one. Being the idiot I am, I said that catching it wuold be faster so I fly off to Driftveil to catch one. There's a 5% encounter rate in the rippling water. And the first one I accidentily KO'd it (damn ghost types, can't False Swipe 'em). All in all, I spent a couple perfectly good hours catching a Jellicent. :/

    But even worse than that was the Feebas in Diamond/Pearl... 4 freaking spots. -.-

    Feebas. That took forever. But now I have Milotic in Ruby, so I guess it was worth it... :)
