What’s new: I’ve beat the Elite Four and Kanto gym leaders. I really like how good this game looks, the only downside is that some remixes rock and some really, really suck. The Ecruteak theme is hard to recognize, for one. They’ve made a great work with this game nevertheless.
I’m in Mount Silver training my team. I’m going to challenge Red and then the Elite Four, which is much stronger the second time around. Mister is supposed to evolve into a Mismagius eventually after a little bit of training.
I evolved Magmar into Magmortar using the GTS glitch: Since I know no one who plays the games and don’t trust Wi-Fi gamers I had no other choice but to give Magmar a Magmarizer, deposit him in the GTS requesting a ridiulous Pokémon in exchange ( a Lv. 9 or under Charizard), perform a trade over the GTS and then take him back, making him evolve. If you do this yourself be careful: some gamers will produce such a ridiculous illegitimate Pokémon with their cheating devices just to snag your legitimate one. It’s not risk-free to not have friends to play the games with.
Another new thing is that I’ve met a shiny Pokémon in the wild, aside from Gyarados, for the first time in my life. Either you’re one of those that meet them all the time or one that never has in 12+ years of playing the games. This is what I saw and managed to catch:
