OMG... New shiny factor?!

So I have this inversion device for my back, basically you hang upside down and everything straightens out... However I usually get bored, so I decided to play pokemon, needed to evolve inkay.

I just ran into two shiny eevees back to back.

I have no idea if it was just luck, or if there is anything else too it. I do not have the shiny charm.

That has to be the coolest medical treatment I have ever heard of.

... okay, maybe not as cool as "well, we'll just poison you, and since you have more cells than the disease, we figure you'll survive and it won't," but that's a tough bar to pass. Coolest orthopedic one, anyway.

1/4096 for a given pokemon to be shiny in the absence of any modifiers (MM, Friend Safari, Shiny charm etc.).

I guess that upside down mechanic is for more than just inkay. I wish I could try it more, but all the blood rushed to my head, that, and my kids are awake now.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
