I only know of the chode-like Tsuchinoko in Aria of Sorrow on GBA. It's not really that rare, but easy to miss because it only appears in one room about 25% or so of the time. It grants you a soul that makes the shop cheaper. Not ret tho. Was it seen in other games.
>drops ness's best weapon,the gutsy bat
>can only find in it in the two "rooms" before giygas
>no way of even being able to tell it apart on the overworld
Stupidest fucking thing ever, the sword of kings wad at least arguably worth as there was still quite a bit of the game left that point.
Any other games that give you the best weapons so late into the game you basically can't use them?
I ran into a shiny not too long ago.
I caught Lapras in Union Cave and I was going to go back to Violet to grab a low-level Zubat from Dark Cave because I wanted a Crobat.
On my way out of the cave, I ran into a shiny level 22 Zubat. Obviously I'd have preferred grabbing on under 22, but it was too good of an opportunity to pass up. He was on my team for the rest of the game.
Seeing these guys in the DKC3 credits always mystified me as a kid. I always had a feeling there was more content to the game but never knew how to open the lost world.
These guys are way more annoying, at least with the criminal caterpillar or the master criminal worm and the beanlings if you found them they gave you the experience. Not as bad as metal slimes but still annoying.
i emulated pokemon's red and blue unpretentiously cheatfree on a course of several weekends on a side by side with a cousin, trading monsters and what not, at most we might have read a few faqs, and we still fought a few times most of these, so i guess they arent rare, they jusdt arent sparrow/carterpilar abundant
wasnt there a trick to finding the right spot? i cant remember, but i know that once i knew the rules behind it it didnt take too long to catch one. speaking of rse, to this day i still cant catch latios though...
Man I never thought of it that way, definitely feels like something itoi would do. Even then in mother 3 most of the best equipment that requires grinding is found in chapter 7 so you at least use it for awhile, but the gutsy bat is probably just a fuck you to those who always need the best equipment in their games.
Shit I've really beaten this guy earlier today. All my party was dead, safe for Jeff at 19 HP who bashed him for the last blow. I honestly didn't expect to win that, and moreso with Jeff.
In the first game that they appear, they show up on six random tiles out of 400 or so in a single route in the game. The good news is once you find a spot where they appear, they will keep appearing there as long as you don't leave the route (the spots are randomized every time you enter the route). So the best strat is to bring tons of balls, find the spot, and catch a ton of them. Make sure you get a female so you can breed them and thus never have to do the bs again. Also, you need a female with really high beauty stat in order to get a chance at a milotic, since they only evolve when their beauty is maxed. This is only coming from rse though, I know kothing of them past that because I got them then and made it a point to never bother catching them again.

Itoi is a super troll, I love that guy. Toby learned well from him. What really stops me from trying Mother again is Mount Itoi. I read somewhere the devs (including Itoi) were so fucking tired of making this game that they were designing Mt Itoi and said "FUCK IT" and that's why it's so hard
You can find them in the cave of the past, in the second and third section. Their not difficult enemies but are infamous for their rarity and having a 1/128 chance of dropping ness's best weapon, the gutsy bat. Of coarse being available in only the final dungeon makes grinding for it not worth it in any way unless you wsnt the bragging rights, the rights to being able tp say you wasted your time.
I'd nearly shit myself every time one of these would pop up.

What was his deal?
He only loaded if you entered the room in a place you couldn't reach him, and he zeroed in on your location and tried to get to you, unlike the behavior of every other zoomer.
Wonder if this guy and the red Zoomer ever hang out.
I actually caught both legendary birds lugia and ho-oh in silver as shinies by 'legal means'. not sure what mechanism in the game allows for the player to encounter shinies, but it seemed to me that some games were more favoured by it than others. In the same run - the third at that time - through the game, I had encountered many wild shinies, minor pokemon, such as sentret and gligar, but also another rare pokmon: togepi! years later when i had another run through silver, I didn't encounter any shiny at all. I heard from some other people as well they haven't even seen any shiny but gyardos in any game. I think it's a hidden parameter that sets out the luck of the player when you begin the game and will affect your playthrough for the rest of the game to some extent.
