I just woke up a bit before 7 in the morning. Normally I'd like to sleep longer, but my cat wouldn't leave me alone until I fed her, so I was a bit grumpy.
Anyway, to try and cool off a bit, I decided to grab Pokemon X and train up my team a bit. Right now I've nearly got Mewtwo up to top level, and I'm sharing experience with both Gabite and Vibrava around Lv. 40 because they'll become terrific assets. The venue is Victory Road, since Mewtwo is considered unbeatable there with Hidden Power (Water), Psychic, Ice Beam, and Aura Sphere.
But after wiping out two Gurdurrs with Aura Sphere, I nearly jumped out of my skin when I saw the Shiny Haunter appear next. Even if I haven't completed the National Dex yet and gotten the Shiny Charm to increase the chances, it's still a sudden shock to see one just appear.
I immediately began thinking, "It's not going to be easy to catch it." Mewtwo is at Lv. 94 and will just wipe it out in one shot. My three high level Linoone that I use to collect items and sell for money have only Normal moves and aren't effective. Gabite and Vibrava are still too weak compared to a Lv. 58 Haunter, and even if I have False Swipe enabled, it still won't be effective on a Ghost type. What am I going to do?
Then I slapped my head..."What am I thinking? I gotta use my Master Ball!"
You see, I like to save the Master Ball for opportunities such as this...using it to catch legendaries that fight instead of flee is no fun. So thank goodness that I have it there in my bag and all I have to do is select it and throw it!
I'm just recovering from the overwhelming fact of it all now, so I decided to write this entry while I get my breath back.
But now I'm caught between two options: what am I going to do with a Shiny Haunter? On the one hand, I'm intrigued by the thought of evolving it into a Shiny Gengar and in turn evolve it into a Mega-Shiny Gengar, yet on the other hand Haunter seems to be a nice choice too. So before I consider the matter any further, I'm going to leave it a week and ask for any other opinions in the meantime.
Should I leave Shiny Haunter as it is?
Or should I get Mega with Gengar?
