So this will be my first post in about 10 years as well, as I don't really use the forums but love the egg portion and always have.(so please ignore the cringe of my profile, it's pretty bad)

But today something finally happened that I need to share.
Ever since May of 2010 I have been on/off hunting Koffing as a shiny. It was no particular reason as I am not a huge koffing fan it was just a random pick.
While not a humongous amount of eggs as some peoples hunts, I think the sheer amount of time between start and end may be the record for here.
So everyone, welcome my new shiny Koffing named Patience!

Congrats!! Patience is an appropriate name for your Koffing lol.

I had an Audino hunt that started on Mar '13 which I've completed just last month.

It's a nice feeling to finally finish a long term hunt, isn't it?

Yeah i thought a good ironic name for the koffing would be the best idea XD

and yup it feels amazing to finally have that hunt done, it feels like it took forever and a day probably because it kinda did but yeah

It really is the best feeling ever. When W. Vulpix first came out (before a shine recorder was an actual thing) I started my hunt and then quit the site, came back a decade later myself and forced myself to finish it cause it was driving me up the bloody wall.

->This mofo thankfully came out male too.

I feel ya, Synx Itax.

My "Holy #$#" moment just came for me.

...882 eggs (definitely not a lot of eggs, but there have been several shiny hunts since this one started)
1,433 days (can't count that far back? SWSH - May 12, 2016!!)

And my Golett FINALLY was hatched!

Special thanks go out to the breeder, Alpha PrimeDX. Literally, dude, I could NOT have done this without you!! love.gif
