View Full Version : Shiny Graveler

02-10-2011, 07:28 AM
I was training Murkrow for Defense EV's on Victory Road and fainting Gravelers, which give me +8 def with Macho Brace, Pokerus.

All of a sudden this Bronze, Golden looking Graveler shows up.

I got scared cause I just know it's gonna do self-destruct. Closing eyes and random incantation I tossed the Ultra Ball.

Some way, out of all the horror stories I read online about SHiny Geodudes self-destructing.

Graveler got caught in 1 turn. I was so lucky, I thought it was gonna.... xD so happy!!

It's got a Timid Nature which is bad but it's got the Proud of it's power Characteristic.

not sure about IV's, but it's atk/65/Def/83/SP.ATK/38/SP.DEF/38/Speed30
Rock Head ability

^ Added screenshot for anyone interested in seeing it's color!

Encountering a shiny Graveler, and catching it at the first turn? You're pretty lucky! xD
I haven't encountered a shiny Pokémon in a looong while, so I wouldn't really be able to tell how exciting it would be to catch one, but, congrats on catching it, though! ^^

Congratulations on your shiny!! Golem is actually one of those pokemon where being shiny really makes a cool difference :)

Also, I am one of those persons you are talking about who got involved in the selfdestruct tragedy. When I was really young and played Pokemon Gold, I encountered a Red Graveler at Victory Road.... you know the rest. It was gone before I could blink my eyes. Congratz with it and hopefully you can one day kick some ass in some NU battle :)
