Shiny pokemon and pokerus in Pokemon X and Y. - not even gonna bother with it

#1WizardofHothPosted 3/15/2013 2:05:19 PM
I get so tired of the once in a lifetime pokerus and shiny pokmeon that only show up once.

The only time I ever got a shiny pokemn and even pokerus was back in Pokemon Sapphire.

I'm not gonna bother running around constantly just to run into a "shiny" pokemon or encounter a wild pokemon that might have pokerus or not. I get so tired of that crap.

Nobody's forcing you to catch shinies or get Pokerus. Those are just extras. It's your choice if you look for it or not...

I got pretty damn lucky with Pokerus in Black 2. I was training in Celestial Tower, and got low on health. Went back to the Pokemon center, and Pokerus just like that. I wasn't even up to eighth gym yet.
Hope I get that lucky for X/Y.

You can get Pokérus from online trades, so that's never an issue.

Unless you're RNGing them, you'll usually only run into those when you're NOT looking for them.

I got Pokérus TWICE in recent playthroughs: once in Black 2, and another when I was replaying SoulSilver. @_@

If you got pokerus even once you're golden. Just spread it around and then transfer them into the next gen and so on. I've gotten it 3 time legit and 2 shinies. Also if you really want to say oncei in a lifetime those would be the events.
