aka. Nerd Affictionado Bi-Quarterly
Shiny Bulbasaur with Chlorophyll hatched this morning, only 2 perfect IV’s in HP and Sp. Def however the iv checker indicated that it had “outstanding potential overall” meaning the IV total of all stats is between 151-186 and the average is at least 28 so its usable in my opinion.
I debated posting this since it represents my ultimate failure as a shiny hunter. The Ivysaur on top was found in the friend safari a few weeks ago. Foolishly instead of throwing an ultra I used False Swipe on my summoned Weavile. The def IV on the Ivysaur must have been low because he went to 1hp instantly when most others in the safari had at least yellow chunk left after 1x swipe.
APPARENTLY friend safari Ivysaurs carry Take Down, which it used, killing itself with recoil damage in the process. Naturally I was mortified. I was able to find some small shreds of relief in the fact that in this particular safari I had yet to uncover the 3rd slot pokemon, meaning there was no chance this Ivysaur had it’s hidden ability- Chlorophyll. Additionally since this was a wild find there was no way I could ever get it’s egg ability Giga Drain on it, meaning most of the best Venasaur movesets would be forever off limits for this guy, and I already have a shiny Venasaur like that. Those things compounded with it’s apparent low def. IV made it much less appealing, but in spite of all that it’s still a true shame. Let this be a lesson to all hunters! Be wary when using False Swipe while hunting.
Today I hatched his spiritual successor, shiny Bulbasaur. I say that because it has Overgrow, just like the friend safari one would have. So… I still need another one anyway.
