@ShadowLugia I totally understand how you feel. Its hard to keep playing this game when stuff gets too tedious and not fun anymore.

Yeah hopefully they can fix the post game by events (Non e shop dlc). I mean look at the map there is a massive gap in the region where you can't even visit nor there are any revealed cities, towns or routes etc. Untitled

Nice. After visiting the judge, I discovered I got a great Zubat, Drilbur, and protean Froakie, all from 15 minutes of Wonder Trading. Guess I don't have to breed Pokemon myself after all.

So... as far as Shiny hunting goes, it takes about 20 seconds from running about in the grass to escaping the battle. So that's 3 Pokémon per minute. That clocks in at a total of 180 Pokémon per hour... so that means it'll take about 5 1/2 hours straight of searching to run into 1000 wild Pokémon... and at 1000, mathematically, my odds should start increasing... that's a lot of searching! ...hopefully a shiny Pokémon shows up before that long, though... o.o

Actually using the radar method you'll start seeing shinies at 40 successful chains. After 40 you can just keep reseting the bushes until a shiny pops up.

@WingedSnagret: Chaining is SO FRIGGIN' HARD though! My longest chain was three... I think I can handle just running around in the Safari, though.

@Gioku It is rather tricky, but once you know the formula it becomes easier to chain.
...

That said I've had three instances where the chain went to the early 30's but for some BS reason broke even though I followed the rules exactly. Needless to say I've yet to come across my first shiny...

the easiest way to get a shiny pokemon is chain fishing...
put a pokemon with the suction cup ability in front of your team...(malamar,octillery)...
fish,ran,repeat until shiny!
no knocking out or catching the fish until shiny

Yeah...doesn't work for me. I tried that once with a suction cup Octillery and I still had moments where nothing appeared on the line, breaking the chain. :p

Does anyone have a Sawk they'd be willing to trade for a Throh? I understand that Throh and Sawk are version exclusive this time around, and I'd like one myself.

I caught a few Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Platinum (which is the easist Pokemon game to catch Shiny Pokemon in) but I stopped caring because they only serve one purpose: to brag you caught one. I have never caught a Shiny with the right Nature and stats and Abilites so I just stopped caring.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 eventually.

@ShadowLugia EXACTLY!!! Gamefreak visually impressed me so much as I played Pokemon X. I'm just so shocked and sad that Gamefreak didn't add even more places to explore after we beat the game. Its just so stupid to me. If I was Gamefreak... I would say, "Okay, so the gamer just beat the game. Of course the gamer is hungry for more story and stuff to see. Let's do a cool sidequest with N and Giovanni. Let's have the gamer explore a underground palace. Let's make the gamer explore a city trapped in the sky. How about we give the gamer a chance to ride a airplane to some exotic and special themed islands?"
THATS JUST A FEW IDEAS TO MAKE POKEMON X/Y HAVE GOOD POST GAME CONTENT.

Seems you've just stopped caring about Pokémon altogether, @Blastoise-san...
Some people, though, are still having fun with the game... and that's perfectly OK... different people have fun doing different things, and that's OK...

@Gioku Hey, don't get me wrong. I'm a huge Pokemon fan. I luv Pokemon with all my heart. Pokemon Platinum is my favorite game of all time and Pokemon X surpassed that game in many ways but also didn't surpass PK Platinum in various huge ways.
I really liked Pokemon X. Its a easy 10/10 for me. I just hate how Pokemon X barely has anything going for it after we beat the game and I'm so shocked by it because Gamefreak packed sooo much before we beat the game.
I don't play Pokemon games just to battle Pokemon. I play Pokemon games for various reasons. I'm not thrashing you for striving to catch Shiny Pokemon. I'm just saying that striving to catch Shiny Pokemon does not satisfy my taste for something to do in Pokemon X/Y.
There is just so many things Gamefreak could have done when we beat the game.... SO MANY... Lol.

@Blastoise-san: OK, I gotcha. My favorite of the series, Pokémon Black, I loved because after you beat the Elite Four you're really only halfway done - there's still half of the region left to explore! ...but I'm also perfectly content searching for shiny Pokémon (at the moment) or just training for/partaking in battles. The battles are the most fun part for me, particularly double battles. I could do double battles for hours on end - which I do in the Battle Maison! And I have fun battling against people from here on NL, too. And I can't wait to get my good team back when Pokémon Bank comes around! ...and between Black, Black 2, and Y, I think I just may have enough Pokémon to complete my other goal I've always had: completing the Pokédex (at least the main Pokédex, not counting "extra special" Pokémon (Mew, Celebi, etc.))! So for me, at least, there's still plenty for me to have fun with. Especially because it's basically what I end up doing in every Pokémon game. But like I said - everyone has different things they enjoy. :)

@Gioku Lol I understand. I've poured countless of hours in Pokemon Platinum but I poured wayyy more hours into Pokemon Black than Pokemon X.
