    I found a shiny Poliwag!


    But I accidentally ran away...
    It was a really subtle difference, and I was reading something else while trying to find one of the Ultra Beasts, so I wasn't paying close attention to begin with. Ah well, at least it wasn't a really cool Shiny. Auto-running from something like Araquanid would've haunted me forever. Or at least until I breed a replacement.

    I heard that shinies are easier to find on Sun & Moon - for a "common" pokemon, is it still "easier" to Masuda method a shiny or just grind for it in battles? For instance, my wife wants a shiny Mudbray since I can't get her a Ponyta (at least YET).

    Guzma's theme is probably the most boss damn theme in the game. Love hearing it! What are your favourite soundtracks in SuMo?

    I like Anabel's theme in Battle Tree, if only because it confirms that she is from the R/S/E universe.

    Depending on what version you have there is multiples you have to catch. Specifically the game exclusive ones.

    The only ones that come to my mind that only you have 1 to catch is Nihilego and Guzzlord.

    my gawd! type null is such a pain to evolve! took three friggin days, 30 stat boosters and all my money! *sounds like my ex, lol*

    my goodness, this series gives me the feels! once again, i forgot how cool/messed up kyurem's assimilation was! *i still want official artwork of "the original dragon"*

    both: 1 nihilego, 1 guzzlord, 2 xurkitree (should of been grass/electric)
    sun: 2 buzzwoll, 4 kartana
    moon: 4 pheromosa, 2 celesteela

    edit:
    is it bad i think nihilego's name is based on "nihilist" and "lego" because it attached itself to lusamine?

    To my understanding, chaining SOS battles is the best method of getting a shiny to appear in Sun/Moon. I've yet to try it myself, and no idea what the odds are yet compared to other methods, but I've heard it's a pretty reliable way to quickly get a shiny to appear.

    There is only the one Fishing rod in Sun/Moon. The trick is to find a fishing spot that is bubbling to find rarer Pokemon, or Pearls.
