Wow that double holo wigglytuff is amazing! I had not heard of double holos in jungle before!
Thanks for sharing!!


Even though i try to look away from errors atm these are super interesting! Both looking forward and fearing the fossil one and the possible repeating muk errors i might not be familiar with (which basically is anything outside footsteps-error)


The screen holos and double holos look really cool—didn’t know about either of them before!


Thanks man! I can’t think of any others at the top of my head. I’ll dm you on IG for pictures of that one to add to the list.
