Catching all 151, er, 368, er ... a lot: The Pokemon Infodump Party!

  1. Okay, I've done some research on this now.

    The Groudon was encountered in the Ultra Wilds at level 60, and IS available in that location at that level. According to Bulbapedia, Legendaries found there can be soft-reset for shiny, there are ways to bump up the odds of encountering a shiny, AND they're guaranteed to have three perfect IVs.

    According to the IV calculator, it has a 31 in HP and DEF, a 12-14 in S. ATK, and a 25 or 26 in S. DEF while its ATK and SPD are incalculable without determining if any Effort Values have been put into them. Which, considering it's gone up 32 levels, is entirely possible.

    Guys I think this is legit. o_o

    Hot damn, that is lucky. Finding a shiny legendary on Wonder Trade, and one that's *legitimate* no less?

    That's pretty amazing.

    Also side-note re: competitive community. I'm pretty sure even tournament players hack their Pokemon, maybe not for VGC (I.e. the official one run by the Pokemon Company), but after trying to get a single perfect I.V. Pokemon through breeding, I can conclude that the Pokemon competitive community would migrate entirely to Showdown almost instantly if somehow hacking Pokemon became impossible. It is... Unreasonably difficult to get a competitively viable pokemon legitimately.

  3. Despite my occasional interest, I’ve never been part of the competitive scene. But I do enjoy a good shiny hunt once in a while.

    Depressingly, I don't think we'll get anymore third versions. There hasn't been one since... Platinum, actually? God. Wow.

    Yeah, I lost an Umbreon for a research quest to that too. The resulting Vaporeon is named "Traitor."

  18. I got a shiny Tyrunt via wonder trade. Too bad he wasn’t mine, I could’ve named him Blueblood or something for pun value.

    a thought experiment: would a ghost possessing someone, or an empty body, still be immune to normal- and fighting-type attacks?
