Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.
Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.
Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?
Route 29? Tried it. I have heard that Heracross are usually found there and in Azalea Town, but no luck in either location. I've killed hundreds of Spearows, Aipoms, and the occasional Ekans with no luck. Only good thing out of all this is that Lucky evolved into Noctowl.Also, glitchedgamer, in Gold, I could find Heracross easily at the route I forget the name of that goes from New Bark to Cherrygrove. It may not apply in Crystal, and they come in level 10, but hey, it may be worth a shot if you're so pissed. :P
My shiny Machop had a Jolly nature... and I trained it for the right EVs as well... :D I think they're the right EVs, I'm not a huge expert at competitive battling.The one wild Shiny Pokemon I found, an Electrike, happened to be a Modest nature... perfect ;)
