Yeah, I generally grind for the sword every time I play through the game.
Funny story though: In my last playthrough, I was so burnt out on spending hours in Stonehenge Base that I actually gave up and continued on without it. I never thought I'd ever do that but alas. Sometimes it just gets to a point where it's just...not..worth the trouble, if that makes sense.
I could never imagine soft-resetting for a shiny in Pokemon. 1/8192 chance is WAAAAY worse odds than 1/128.
Oh, I get it every time. I just can't deal with the thought of having an empty equipment slot. Now if there were a different weapon for Poo, even just a +10 (and the Sword was +40, base Offense lowered to compensate), then I probably wouldn't bother. --- --I get stranger things than you free with my breakfast cereal.
Nope. I've never really tried, though. I've been meaning to, one of these times, I'll get it.
It's just not worth it. I never Bash with Poo anyway, just use him for PSI stuff. --- Challenge Mode scores: 230, 300, 249, 100, 299(perfect!) Overall: 1178 All the info is there, except the info that isn't there.
I've gotten it a few times. The first time, it was almost by accident. Most of the time i just did a little grinding and it turned up. Last time, i did so much grinding that i wound up overleveled and still didn't get it. On my current play through, i didn't even bother trying and i don't miss it. He mostly just heals or uses starstorm anyway. --- Am I allowed to swear yet?
Sword of Kings and the Gaia Beam are two weapons I always get. Usually I wait until after Magicant to get the beam. --- You're awfully kind taking time out of your day to read this signature. This signature loves you!
