I don't remember, but it had to involve Chansey in the Kanto games.

Oh right, I never actually answered the question.

I assume waiting for events to be released or going through hell and back for stuff like Colosseum Ho-oh doesn't really count as "looking", so the only possible answer is Munchlax. Seriously, screw that thing so hard. It took me over a year to finally find one, and while I wasn't actively searching that entire time, I did go through at least two months of checking every honey tree in the game multiple times a day.

For those not aware, Munchlax is a 1% encounter rate on the honey trees in D/P/Pt. So basically, you put honey on the tree, come back 6 hours later, and then check for a Pokemon. Even this on its own wouldn't be that bad, but Munchlax only appears on 4 out of the 21 trees in the game, and it's basically random which ones it decides to inhabit. Yes, there is a calculator, but I wasn't aware of this while I was looking for it.

If anyone ever complains about Feebas, they either never bothered looking for Munchlax, or they got insanely lucky with it.

If you actively hate Justin Bieber... then you don't know what "intended audience" means. Hate Twilight instead, it's far worse.

Oh how I understand that. Feebas was the bane of my existence in Sapphire... when I finally hooked one in Emerald, I'm positive you could hear FF Victory Fanfare on Mars. Munchlax... I never did find one, so I finally got one from breeding Snorlax in HG.

Yes sir. Something about belongingness (all Pokes untouched, caught at the same place, etc.) genuinely sits well with me so I would've continued 'til I got Dragonite.

It does sound strange but eh, it's whatever. I wouldn't endorse this type of behavior but I'm happy playing the game this way :P


This really hurts my head. Go outside. There is a whole world out there where "belongingness" as you call it, would actually matter. >_>

I do "go outside" as you put it; I just find joy in playing Pokemon whenever I'm not busy (which has been the case in the last two days). In general I leave videogames alone for months.

Usually I try to obtain either a legendary (which is more the hassle of walking up to their sprite) or a Pokemon I plan on using on my team (which takes less than 20 minutes to find).

I don't remember how long it took, but I was looking for a male Jigglypuff. (Why male? Because it's rarer.) And when I finally do find one, it's shiny!
