Yeah, the shinies are terrible. I just need them for my living dex. There are other shinys that are way more troublesome to get. Maushold are super annoying to hunt, and then they only have a 1/100 chance to be the rare form. And while shiny sinistea are easier to spot, the antique form doesn´t even spawn in outbreaks or with an encounter sandwich.

i have been working on a (normal) living dex, as i want the shiny charm and decided that catching every pokemon wouldnt be far off a living dex anyway

What a peculiar EV distribution.
You got an adamant Arcanine, so you can take it 2 different ways with its EV spread from the typical 252 in ATK and SPD with 4 going into DEF/SP.DEF
or you can go 252 in HP and ATK with 4 EV's into SP.DEF

Items to give your Arcanine, that depends on you if you want to take it to the competitive scene, from Leftovers/Assault Vest/Boots/Life Orb (this one i suggest you don't unless you play lower on the ladder but is better on Hisuain Arcanine)

I wasn´t asking for advice. This was that distributed shiny Arcanine, that someone used to win a tournament i guess.
I commented on how weirdly the stats are distributed. circa 240 HP, 84 Attack, 96 Defense, 76 Speed and 12 Special Defense.
This is some highly specialized shit, probably calculated so it survives a specific attack from a specific mon, outspeeds whatever it needs to outspeed, and barely K.O.s what it needs to.

:catlazy:
Glad to see this thread kicking.
I haven't managed to play any new Pokemon game mayne...but I am watching the new Pokemon Horizons anime and it is great! I hope I can find some time in future to get into the Pokemon Switch games. The anime made me hungry for more.
