    Haha yeah I’ve had about four or five different hunts hit 2000 eggs with Masuda Method and not get a shiny. That’s usually when I stop because I get tired of just hatching eggs upon eggs.

    Good news is, the Dragon Trial was a breeze with Jaws and we managed to take down Ultra Necrozma. So now I’m working on the Fairy Trial.

    Sorry to hear that you have been so unlucky with Masuda method. Good luck with your next shiny hunt, if and when you do it.

    Congratulations on winning the Dragon trial and the Ultra Necrozma battle! Good luck with the Fairy trial. :)

    @Suicune's Fire @Cleobel

    So a minor update. I cleared the Fairy Trial with ease and began to climb Mount Lanakila. I caught Necrozma (but I won't be using it) and continued to explore. The climb was a bit tough, with close calls for Skye and Akuma, but it was nothing too major. I thought we might be able to clear it without issue. Unfortunately, twas not meant to be. The last set of trainers, a double battle, proved to be tougher than anticipated. They sent out a Tyranitar, and while Biloxi was able to survive the initial Stone Edge, the sand storm took him out.

    So right now I'm grinding up my shiny Poipole to replace him. I'll post a stats update once I get the little guy up to level cap, but just thought I'd give a small update as to what I've been doing since the last update.


    RIP Biloxi
    Level 25-72

    So here's my notes for the E4:

    Spoiler:
    Nile swept Molayne pretty easily with Flamethrower. Used Z-Move on Klefki. Then thanks to Beast Boost pretty much swept everyone else. Magnezone managed to knock Nile down to 1 HP thanks to Sturdy but Nile out sped Magnezone next turn for the win.

    For Olivia I started out with Skye. It was a 2HKO with Shadow Claw. Lycanroc was an OHKO with Leaf Blade. Gigalith took a few turns because of its bulk but it was also easy. Switched to Akuma to handle Probopass. Earthquake nearly took it out but sturdy allowed it to deal some damage. Finished it with Drill Run. Akuma then 2HKOed the Cradily to end the battle.

    Let Skye lead for Acerola as well. Took out Banette without issue. Froslass actually managed to outspeed Skye and got in a Blizzard, but Skye handled it okay and OHKOed it. Then came Dhelmise who managed to live a Shadow Claw and got in a Shadow Ball. Skye hung on with 5 HP. She also got a special defense drop, but managed to take it out after a few more turns. Palossand and Drifblim were both OHKOs.

    Finally that left Kahili. I led with Foster. I ended up switching to Nile to handle the Hawlucha at one point. For the most part though Foster handled it. That Toucannon, however, was a rough one to handle. Foster got confused by the Mandibuzz which made his already semi-inaccurate moves hit less. That Focus Band ended up saving Foster from dying to a bullet seed. Finally, he managed to force his way through the confusion and landed a stone edge, but it was a rough few turns. Other than that though he handled all the other mons like a champ.

    So then came the Hau champion battle. I got spoiled to this early on so I ended up leading with Jaws since I know he tends to lead with his Alolan Raichu. It got a good hit in with Thunderbolt but Jaws OHKOed it with Crunch. Akuma OHKOed the Flareon. I initially left Akuma out to deal with Tauros but switched him out for Skye. Nile handled the Crabominable and Noivern. And Seatbelt finished off the battle with a Discharge OHKO against Primarina.


    All in all it was great to come away with no losses! I was a bit worried with the few close calls I had, but it worked out. So now I'll be working on getting through the Rainbow Rocket phase. I think I have to do something with the Ultra Recon Squad first, but I'll keep you guys updated with how this proceeds from here.

    Yeah I'm really excited for this arc since this is the party of USUM I've wanted to get to for a while so hopefully I can get to it pretty quickly.
