I already owned Pokemon X, but bought Pokemon Y anyway yesterday.
I thought I'd have a mess around session at 12 o'clock at night since I wasn't quite tired yet.
12 Pokemon in, and what shows up.
A damned Shiny Panpour.
Thank goodness this was Pokemon Y and not some of the older versions of Pokemon, firstly, and secondly... I ended up going along with the session for another two hours. I don't have that kind of luck and took it as a good omen.
This is only the 4th shiny I've come across and 3rd I've caught. It feels weird because I just played a mess around session late at night and it just appeared. Its a shame its a shiny Panpour though... :-/
