PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I have a Fire-type Pokemon with a Serious nature, and apparently there's a shiny leaf on Route 33, but I've found out that Fire-types can't get a shiny leaf on this route.

Edit: After a few resets it turned out that my Pokemon needed to find the shiny leaf before it got mad at me.

Shiny leaves depend on the Pokemon's nature, and the route it is on. To my memory, it had nothing to do with types, and is solely dependent on nature/ route match up. Also, since the leaves are so rare, you are not guaranteed a leaf even if your Pokemon's nature matches with the route.

Here's a table showing the nature/ route match ups:

It's a bit too long to post here.
