Another scrumptious episode of Bulbacast has been uploaded to YouTube. Watch it here. I hope you don't feel desserted after watching this one.
The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier.
Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
It's been a second since I've updated my perfects here! Here's what I've nabbed since my last update:
April 11: Phanpy (Donphan) from a lucky trade
April 14: Bagon from a trade
April 14: Bagon from a lucky trade
April 14: Alolan Diglett (Alolan Dugtrio) from a lucky trade
April 22: Croagunk...
Oh man, it's been a while since my last update!
I went to GO Fest Chicago with TeaWest and had a blast -- stayed in the city for three days even though my tickets were for Friday. I caught I think 20 various shinies over the course of the weekend (including some new ones, Absol (level 9!)...
Man there is no point in me updating my post in this thread because I do several hundred trades a week (my trade count is at 8808 and I have probably acquired 500 or so lucky pokemon in my time), BUT! I did manage to get lucky friends and get a Farfetch'd, and got a full-odds lucky Latios too...
I've traded 4000 Pokémon since my last update to this thread, so my highlights are: Lunatone the day they swapped, perfect Bulbasaur (now a Venusaur), perfect Magneton, perfect Alakazam, 91% Rampardos, and 98% Meltan
I see the grass starters quite frequently, and I also see a fair number of Chimchars and Torchics as well. Not as many Charmander or Cyndaquil. The water starters are somewhat conspicuously absent, even though I live in a very wet place.
I caught a shiny Castform and two shiny Lotad! Well, kind of. I did 24 quests for Lotad, and didn't get any. I handed my phone to my partner to play for me as we were taking a break to get lunch, and immediately they caught two shiny Lotad for me :D
I also have gotten Treecko (seven), Solrock...
Swinub day went great, and I nabbed 14 shinies! But outside of that, I've had some luck recently with shinies as well! I've grabbed
and I've traded for a Delibird, a Poochyena, and a Caterpie! So I feel pretty good about my luck.
I did quite well on Swinub day! I was sad, because it was scheduled during when I was out of town for a convention, but the spawns surrounding the convention were so dense I managed to get 14 shinies anyway, which tied my record!!
