This situation has been solved! Thank you to everyone who messaged me and offered help. Much appreciated! ^_^
Fellow Pokémon Trainers, I need your help. A very close friend of mine has unfortunately been traded a bad egg on her copy of Pokémon X. She was trading someone from Mexico for a Vivillon and they traded her an egg and she accepted thinking it would be a Scatterbug egg. This was not the case and she’s now most upset. She has traded all her important Pokémon to her boyfriend’s game but does not want to lose all her progress on her save file. Is there anyone out there with a spare copy of Pokémon X/Y or a copy they don’t mind resetting who would be willing to take on the bad egg so it’s off of her game? Or does anyone else know of a way to get rid of a bad egg? The offending trainer’s name is Josh, is from Mexico and has the old guy from the Battle Chateau as his avatar.
the crosswalk method is not a legitimate method, please stop saying its a method.
I highly doubt Gamefreak programmed a specific pattern you must walk to encounter a shiny. It’s just a coincidence that you may find a shiny while trying this “method”. Because you know, the Friend Safari doesn’t have increased odds or anything…
Why on earth did I think working in retail was a good career choice? Stupid working taking up my time that I could be shiny hunting >_<
I think I’ll use my spare few hours before bed hatching Espurr eggs. Good look to all my fellow shiny hunters with their hunts ^_^
Wow… I have no words.
Although, I do seem to recall Nintendo getting annoyed at people doing this a few years ago.
oh my god this was done…
I’ll let you know if I do. Also, from reading this page on eBay, I would assume Pokémon are classed as “characters” and by trying to sell them on eBay would be a breach of their terms and services.
