  1. Nice to know the only thing I'm remembered by is my horse head.
  2. Good, variety and more access to shinies like these are great things for the market. Congrats to the lucky OT.
  3. Why wouldn't we, one or two people who made some mistakes don't represent the entire team. We've been around forever, gone through good and bad times, active and inactive times, lost and gained many friends due to various reasons, lost in the first round of team tournaments many times. But all these and many other things are what makes a great team. One or two "bad apples" who unfortunately went down the wrong path won't bring a team like VVVV down. I mean as you all know, VVVV MASTER RACE.
  4. Kizhaz post basically sums it up pretty good. By changing the rate to 1/8192, you don't just increase the amount of rare shinies thus making them affordable. You also increase the amount of uncommon and common shinies to such an extend that they'd basically become worthless. With so many people playing at the same time, a lot more shinies would be found resulting in the complete collapse of the shiny economy with very few exceptions. Sure there are upsides to it too. Cheaper shinies, creatng competitive shinies (though they wouldn't be unique because everyone would have access to them), having more rare shinies around (which can also be a bad thing as the rares would eventually become semi-rare or even uncommon [ex: Snorlax]), and of course, finding more shinies in the wild. But then again the excitement also would shrink quite a bit each time as they'd pop up even more than they do in some cases today (looking at you, jajas). Having cheaper shinies isn't always a good thing either. Look at Lucky Eggs for example. They were rare and desired, until there was much more supply than demand and their value plummeted. Sure they're still useful, but nowhere near as desired as they once were. The same thing would happen to shinies. Want to sell your brand new shiny Vuplix because you need Yen for comps? Too bad, there are already 25 other Vulpix' on the market. Now what happens is you'll all undercut each other, making the value decrease more and more until the point where good comps could be worth more than the brand new shiny you just caught. Tl;dr basic economy. Everything would evolve around rare shinies, and those with rare shinies wouldn't even think about accepting the commons everyone and their nans have 8 of now. So now what do you do? Go hunt rare shinies yourself. And 200 other people do the same. And now that rare shiny is becoming semi-rare. It's already happening to a certain extend with the Charmander line. Of course it doesn't affect the value too much because of how desired it is, but if you seriously have a look at the pure number of shiny Charmander and evolutions that are around, it makes you wonder what would happen to all the other good shinies out there. Doesn't sound that good anymore, does it? Negged for a bad idea.
  5. You look like you would have been a perfect fit as a character for Zoey 101 as the mean football guy who tries to steal everyone's girl.
  6. Congrats. I like the fact that you used Spore and False Swipe on a fuckin Weedle.
  7. Took somewhere around 25k - 30k. IV's are not worth showing.
  8. Not sure why you relied, that doesn't apply to you. :-))))))))))))))))
  9. Growlithe, Vulpix and even the Rats had over 40.000 chances to pop up. Guess the golden ghost just wanted to be a part of the golden boys team.
  10. I'll never be dead, I'm too important to this game and the people who actually matter.
  11. After more than 40.000 encounters at the mansion I go to the Sky Pillar for 30 minutes and this happens (thanks @Cameron. You still owe me some Leppas for coming here)
  12. I'm going to regret this so much as soon as I see any of you guys walking towards me.
  13. Shiny Teddiursa in the Diglett cave during the event time a few years ago. The chance to find a shiny Diglett / Spinda was huge, but I lucked out. Pretty cool, right? What's even better is this: Too bad the HP and attack IV's ruin it. Also +1 for shyni leviator.
  14. Here's a better picture of Cacturne. This shiny has been around for longer than most people right now. Hope you don't end up like the previous 4 thread starters.
  15. The next time one of you hosts see me online, message me and I'll donate a million yen.
  16. Congratulations to [Aw] for winning the Team Tournament and [LYLE] for coming in second.

  21. Congratulations timwaps for winning the tournament and EMMME for coming in second! Thanks everyone for coming out tonight, I hope you all had fun.
  22. The best thing I can do to prevent that from happening is to make the bracket and list of reserves very shortly after the registrations opened. But some of the staff members may not be able to do that right away so we can't always guarantee that everyone will be fair during the sign ups.
