Here are the ISHC 2015 Gimmick Weeks. Remember that each gimmick ends at 11:59PM EST, Tuesday night and the next Gimmick begins immediately at 0:00AM EST, Wednesday. 6th Gen does not count for the Gimmick Weeks. Also, when submitting your shiny to the blog, please put (Gimmick) in your submission. Thanks and enjoy the ISHC!
Voici les ''Gimmick'' de l'ISHC 2015! Chaque Gimmick se termine le mardi soir à 11h59 EST et commence le mercredi à 0h00 EST. Rappelez vous que les shiny de la 6e génération ne compte pas pour les Gimmick. Aussi, lorsque vous faites votre déclaration de capture, mentionnez qu'il s'agit d'un shiny Gimmick en inscrivant ce dernier entre parenthèses à côté du nom du shiny. Merci et bonne ISHC!
