I stayed off of social media today, mostly sticking with the Switch. It seems that the newest Max Raid battles are featuring Pikachu in its Gigantamax form; we’ll be getting Eevee afterwards and Meowth later. I’ve already gotten a shiny Pikachu; it was my fourth battle and third catch. Granted, I sorta cheated when I caught it, as I pitched a Master Ball at it. Yeah, with certain shinies, I don’t play around. Some don’t take to a Ball that well. (Looking at you, Beldum…)
My shiny hunt for a male Ralts isn’t going so well. With my current breeding pair I haven’t gotten a single shiny anything. Frustrating? Yeah. But I’m not stopping now. You never know: the next Egg might be the shiny.
