For nearly a month now I've been MM breeding scatterbugs. Without success. I'm somewhere in the region of 4200-4300 (I lost count at one point). This is crazy bad luck, given that the odds are about 1 in 512. And the stupidest part is I don't even want a shiny scatterbug particularly, as I don't like my region's Vivillon, and its shiny is... meh. But I didn't want to be defeated. So I've gone on and on and on (defeated........)
I took a break today and, perhaps foolishly, went into safari.
Where I caught a Vivillon. Shiny. Timid. With HA (friend guard). And 31 in SD and Sp.
So... do I keep trying to hatch the Scatterbug? Or do I just accept the game defeated me on this. I was not destined to have a shiny scatterbug, but I got shiny vivillon. And those hundreds of hours of meaningless hatching were for NOTHING.
Problem is I've got most all the shiny pokemon I really, REALLY wanted. All my favourites I've MM bred (about 25 of them), and I've got over 150 other shinies from hordes or safari or fishing. I've completed the pokedex. I've bred 6iv of most everything I can think of. I've caught all the HA pokemon available. I've got all the berries (except Enigma, obviously).
I think... I think..... there's nothing left for me in this game. :(
