Yup, I'm stuck n a rut with my creativity now, so I've been making up for it by trying to play an old game of mine. Guess what happened to me yesterday while I was level grinding in Pokemon Sapphire?
I ran into a shiny Volbeat, and it is BLUE and PURPLE. I about fell off my bed when I caught it at full health. Now I have to try to incorporate it into my team, since raising a shiny is non-obligatory: I must do it. Roflol
My current Sapphire team is Grovyle, Slugma, Skarmory, and Volbeat.
The shinies I have caught in all my years of pokemon thus far are now: Smeargle, Sandshrew, Cacnea, Teddiursa, Natu, and Volbeat. I've only hatched one shiny, and that was a Riolu from that egg you get on Iron Mountain. Of all those, I still own Teddiursa (now Ursaring), Natu (now Xatu), Volbeat, and Riolu (now Lucario).
I've virtually made it a project of mine to get at least one shiny on each Hoenn version per save file. I'm still looking for a shiny from both Ruby and Emerald this time around. I have NEVER found a shiny pokemon on either Fire Red or Leaf Green. I wasn't even looking for a shiny, then I got the nagging feeling I was about to run into one about an hour before I found the shiny Volbeat... lucky me. lol
I really want to just draw something, but I'm at a loss for what to draw. I want to try a full scene in colored pencil, but I'm afraid it won't happen because I have no inspiration or inclination to do a background at the moment, and I know I will end up putting an animal at the center of it anyways. I may make that a Pegasus character of mine, but I dunno yet. I'm still trying to brainstorm how to make that scene.
