Losing a lone Ancient Fruit plant that I happen to get early to lightning in Stardew Valley. Resetting didn't save it, and it didn't reach the fruit-bearing stage!
For the record, this was early in the file, so no lightning rods or greenhouse access.
When the Egg-hatching global mission was in progress (still is at the time of this post), decided to try the Masuda method to contribute.
Successfully bred a shiny Minccino with this process. Even better, she inherited her (French) mother's Hidden Ability.
