I was on Route 10 going through the flowers like Jen told me to (I was looking for an Eevee so I could get myself an Umbreon or a Sylveon). And then I remember the trick you can do with the catch shinies. You use your Poke Radar and some Max Repels and yada yada yada....
Point is I never DID catch my Shiny Eevee. So that sucked. ;w;
But anyway, I use my Poke Radar and I see some grass shake. So I go to it and suddenly I get a battle transition that I've never seen before.
You know how when you find a wild pokemon, the screen would wipe or fade to black, and then an effect would appear depending on how the pokemon pops out (grass flies up in tall grass, pebbles on rocky terrain, etc)?
Well this transition started with a sparkle in the grass, which then (rather than fade or wipe) transitioned by creating like...paint smear marks across my screen like I was being swiped at.
THEN AN ARTICUNO APPEARED OUT OF NOWHERE.
Then it had this like cinematic shot, and then I don't even get to try to fight it because it flees! It was such a let down. ;w;
Oh but I DID manage to catch my Eevee. owo And after like 3 or 4 hours of grinding in the grass (battles) and Pokémon-Amie, I managed to get my Eevee to like me so much that at Lvl 20 it evolved into a Sylveon!
It was a good day. =3
