Hello, and welcome to the Shiny Pokemon Club! As the title suggests, this particular thread serves as an area where the shiny hunters of Serebii can discuss anything and everything about shinies. Well, almost everything. ;)

I Storm_Dragoon hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them. I wanna rejoin once again, to talk about shiny Pokemon. I have several from SRing, random encounter and hatched(no fished shinies yet), and I love the thrill of seeing that hard earned shiny on the screen ^^.

Glad to see the new club up and running ^_^. Well I have a new shiny to add to my collection. Yesterday morning I was hatching for shiny Skorupi for the 4th phase of the shiny circuit. On the 983rd egg, a shiny male Skorupi popped out :). He has a Hasty nature with Battle Armor ability(I was hoping for Sniper but ah well)

Shiny Skorupi hatches (http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/Storm_Dragoon/shiny%20circuit/S5030251.jpg)

Here is the video of shiny Skorupi:

Shiny Skorupi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UePsbp3Ljc0)


I started hatching for a shiny Dragon Dance Totodile. I haven't gotten a lot hatched, as I'm currently SRing for shiny Palkia in my other copy of Platinum.

May I join? I would like to join because I am I shiny hunter at heart, and it's what I spend every waking hour doing.

Yay! It's back up! But I bring bad news...

Earlier today I found another shiny poochyena. I didn't take pictures this time. Hopefully it's a sign that I will find my purple mud skipper soon.

Congrats on the shiny Skorupi Storm Dragoon, one of my favorite shinies.

Good luck everyone!

Horray! =D The club is back again~ I'm sooo glad!!

Hunts have been going full nut with me lately. Got another 2 boxes of Horsea all hatched up and I'll be moving onto my 6th box to hatch tonight, hopefully.

My Route 117 hunt is crazy. I've been glued to my Ruby game so much the past few days. I can't believe I've already made more than 6000 encounters for this thing... I really hope something pops up soon! o:

And wow! You got it already, S_D? Congrats!

I -Totodile- hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them.

Woohoo!! The club is back. I want to join because I was a member of the old club and I was devastated when it closed a couple of days ago.

The last shiny I got was Aipom, which I got in December. I haven't been hunting much lately. I did a few SRs for Regice last night but that's it.

I'm glad the club is back again and hopefully it lasts a long time!

wooo we are back in business people! And I would like to rejoin due to the fact I am a dedicated shiny chainer, but am currently trying my hand at random encounter shinies!

I've been fishing still for the past few days, up to approx. 10,440 encounters now of dratini/gyrados and still no shiny :(

congrats on the skorupi S_D! and under 1000 eggs too :) nicely done!

ScorpionX
24th June 2009, 10:59 PM
Would it be presumtious (SP?) of me to assume i don't have to type the forum rules... thing?

Anyhow, i'm currently hunting in the power plant on ruby, hoping for either a magnemite voltorb, as long as the voltorb doesn't explode :p

I might change my location actually, where there are pokemon that can't be easily chained, maybe shoal, cave

Yay the club is back ^^' It's nice to read up on everyone's current hunts and how they are going, it makes me more determined.

No new shiny news here, Day 19 for Uxie, and I am going to reach a little over 27k encounters by the end of the day. I might consider joining the Hoenn Tour on my Ruby just to take a break from SRing..

Maybe I'll start in an hour..or sooner >> I don't know which Route to start though >.< Also, congrats again on the shiny Skorupi S_D ^^

I found a random shiny Voltorb there later last year, and even though I used my Masterball, Selfdestruct wasn't in his moveset. (Then again, mine was level 24 when I found him)


I might change my location actually, where there are pokemon that can't be easily chained, maybe shoal, cave

Try Granite Cave. You got Sableye, or Mawile (Depending on the game) and Aron. Ooh~ Why not try and hunt Underwater? It'd be amazing if someone here hunted for an Underwater shiny! o:

ShinyFufu
24th June 2009, 11:35 PM
To everybody who has posted, welcome (back) to the club! Major congratulations on the shiny Skorupi, S_D. You should hatch for Totodile later...I'm planning on hatching for a Dragon Dance Totodile, too! But it'll have to wait because there are other targets I want more. ;)


I have a new shiny as well. Today I got a shiny Wobbuffet on a 39 chain, then another shiny Wobbuffet at a 43 chain. I'm pleased with myself, considering these past few days I've had my chains break rather easily. This shiny Wobbuffet will be useful for when I soft reset for shiny Cresselia on Diamond or Platinum as well. :) I would be egg hatching for Riolu right now, but my brother is using my DS Lite to chain, so I am soft resetting for a shiny Clefairy on FR.

Good luck, everyone!

Oh, please spread the word that the club is up and running again. ^^

I would like to re-join the club because I was a member of the old one. I'm currently hunting in Platinum Uxie and in FireRed I am hunting Bulbasaur. I might also do some hunting for Eevee in LeafGreen.

Congrats on the shiny Skorupi S_D! Also Congrats ShinyFufu on shiny Wobbuffet!

Narutopokedude
24th June 2009, 11:44 PM
Congrats on the Wobbuffets Fufu! I've never been able to chain a shiny before, but I would need to if I wanted to join the circuit. About the Hoenn Tour, count me in. Now that's my kind of competition! Does it really last a year though?

I like the new club name btw, it is shorter and more to the point. ;D

Wow i'm so glad that the club is back up and running so soon after its closure. Big props to SF for the speedy action on his part.

No new shinies on my end, my hunts are all on hold due to the WiFi Jirachi. However my targets will soon be Scyther(Chain), Gligar(Chain) and i'll be SRing for shiny Azelf as well.

I may start up my circuit again, but it'll have to be on hold until i've got at least a shiny Scyther.

So i see that S_D has made a great first post to the club, a brand spanking new shiny eh, well congratulations. shiny Skorupi looks awesome.

Also a congrats to SF on the shiny Wobba, ah i remember when i chained my first Wobba, that purple glow, and it too was on a chain of 39. Good to know your going to put it to good use as well, now all you need is to SR for a shiny Cresselia.

25th June 2009, 12:11 AM
Everyone who requested to join again, you're in. Thank you all for following the rules.

Narutopokedude: Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I actually shortened that to six months, so it will end on December 9th, 2009. I personally think six months is a bit too short, but the consensus was that a full year was too long. I will change the ending date in my first post.

kirk: Yeah, I can't wait to start SRing for it. :) But first, I'd like to hatch shiny Riolu and then get a shiny Rotom on Diamond.

^.^


I'm currently hatching for my 4th leg shiny in the shiny circuit; a dragon-dancing shiny Totodile. Last time I checked, I was at 1607 eggs, but I've spent a lot of the day hatching... hurry up and appear!

I also started hunting for the 5th leg fishing shiny, too. I'm after a shiny Staryu in Leaf Green and a shiny Carvanha/Feebas (found a Feebas tile ^^ ) in Ruby. Anyof them would be good, but I would like to avenge the random shiny Carvanha that I KO'ed back in July 2007.

And now I'm going to bed, because it';s nearly 12.30am. Good night and good luck, guys.

Storm_Dragoon
25th June 2009, 12:46 AM
Thank you all for the congrats guys. I'm very happy with my shiny Skorupi, mainly because it was a target of mine several months ago. I don't know whether to evolve it into Drapion or not, because I like the red better on Skorupi over Drapion.

My target for the last part of the shiny circuit will be Poliwag, Magikarp or Goldeen. I really hope that a shiny Poliwag will pop up, mainly to recapture the shiny one that got deleted in Crystal. The last time I fished, I was up to 500 encounters. I have plenty of time to fish for a shiny, as I'll be on vacation in a few days ^^.

I agree with you on that, I prefer the red. :)

Fufu: I'm glad it's only 6 months. ^^

So I was gone for the result of March Madness i think, who ended up winning it?

Oh, and great guide MM!

Hm...I might go for Tropius or anything in the Route 119 area.. does anyone know of a way to just make Tropius appear?

Not offhand. However, I gotta warn you, it might have Whirlwind, as noted in this shiny hunting guide I whipped up. (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User:Missingno._Master/The_Shiny_Hunter&#37;27s_Guide)

I'm gonna start for Natu soon, maybe within the hour.

EDIT: I will start chaining Natu soon, but first....

I, Missingno. Master, am officially declaring my entry in the Great Shiny Circuit!

1st Leg - Codename: The Grassy Patch Remained Silent...
I'll be doing yet another attempt for Tyrogue with this leg. 8% appearance rate if memory serves. Whatever that route is east of Eterna City, I forget the route number.

2nd leg - Codename: Desert Storm
I'll be chaining Cacturne for this one, in the desert north of Resort area (I forget the route number)

3rd Leg - Codename: Soft Reset
I'll try my hand at SRing for Cranidos in the Mining Museum.

4th Leg - Codename: Egg (Moves) Attack!
The only foreign Pokemon I have is a male Magmar, evolved from a japanese Magby I got off the GTS LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG ago, so I'll try and breed Makuhita with the egg move Faint Attack. True, I already have a shiny Hariyama, but it's got a Bold nature.

5th Leg - Codename: Hook-A-Shiny!
Even though I already have a shiny Gyarados (and likely will get two more when HeartGold and SoulSilver come out), I will be using the Super Rod in the Resort Area.

I am gonna use Platinum for all five legs, and I intend to do them in order. However, I will not start until tomorrow, as I already am going to chain Natu tonight. Can't put that off, Natu's a swarmer.

25th June 2009, 4:12 AM
I RedGyarados hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them. I wish to join to talk about Shiny Pokemon.

I must first say that it has been around 2 or 3 years since i even looked at the forums and in that time I have amassed a large amount of shinies which now occupy 3 1/2 boxes.

I am currently hunting for a shiny Starly. Good luck to all and I wish you the best of luck on your hunts.

I The King of Ho-oh's hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them I'd like to join to discuss my shiny hunting adventures with others with similar interests.


I'd like to rejoin again :P I'm still breeding for a shiny Relicanth (please have rock head!!). I'm upto about 200 eggs since starting to use the Masuda Method. After that I'm going after a shiny Tropius and hatching it with Leaf Blade.

I'm also going to start "The Hoenn Shiny Tour" tonight (considering I've never found a shiny on Sapphire yet). I have a question about the tour though: will shinys I catch on different saves add up? For example let's say I get a shiny on one play through of sapphire and another 4 play throughs later. Will they add up?

I, ubernoob, hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them.

Well, this is my first time joining..:P
I'm basically a noob at shiny hunting...haven't gotten anything yet in 3rd gen, but I have a boxfull of chained shinies in D/P :P

I also have a question about the Hoenn shiny Tour: On the addendum, it says on the last two weeks, SR'd shinies will be allowed.

This means we can't SR for Hoenn shinies and use them for the contest until...the last two weeks?

ShinyFufu
25th June 2009, 6:19 AM
To everyone that has requested to join, welcome to the club! And a special "Welcome Back" goes to DarkDragon. ^_^

RG, I remember you posting a lot in the 3rd Gen Shiny Thread before it was closed. You got like six shinies in one day, right? What shinies do you have now that occupy 3.5 boxes? o_O

The King of Ho-oh's, of course they will add up? Why wouldn't they? :)

While hatching for Riolu eggs, I checked my swarm, and it's Spoink! :D While I don't normally chain for targets consecutively on my Diamond, this is an exception. I've wanted a Spoink swarm for years, and it seemed like I could just never get one...but now I do! :) I actually chained and obtained two shiny Spoink years ago, but they were so horrendous that I released them and didn't count them towards my total. Hopefully I can get a good haul this time.

I got to 456 Riolu eggs before I began my chain for Spoink.

Good luck, everyone.

thank god that this club is back otherwise i probably would have given up on shiny hunting for a while....
MAjor congrats on the shiny skorupi! very cool shiny indeed.

Nothing from me, though i have started breeding firefang,thunderfang and icefang shinxs but i might swap my breeding target to something more rarer like a luvdisc or something :D
Also the Great hoenn shiny tour looks very appealing to me and i might go back to hunting whismurs in my ruby again after giving up a while ago. Or maybe go back under the sea and try and get a second shiny from there.
Well goodluck everyone!

Good to see that the club is back, I've always enjoyed reading th posts about everyone's catches or targets. No new news on the shiny front for me. I am working on the shiny circuit but haven't done much in the way of pokemon playing in the last week. Been a little distracted by some other games.

I would like to rejoin this club as I'm an avid shiny hunter, maybe a little obsessed ;) and because I've a member for all the previous clubs. Good to see the club is back. I go to work too busy to notice the internet and then I find the club gone.

Well my current hunts are Fiery Path in Ruby. I've been bored with Iron Island and may continue later on. When I have more time I would like to get to Giratina to reset. In my import Plat. I'm sring Darkrai. I will return to Diamond soon and continue hatching Charmanders via Masuda.

I, handymankg2 hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them.

I wasn't really a member of the last club due to the fact I'm a very poor Shiny Hunter. I just seem to not have the patience for it, and as such, I never posted in the club as I never had anything to update. This time round, I will attempt to post in the club regardless of me failing to acheive any Shiny Pokemon captures.

I'm thinking about joining the Shiny Circuit, but only once I get a bit better chain wise. Without chaining, I can't exactly participate.

The King of Ho-oh's
25th June 2009, 8:22 AM
The King of Ho-oh's, of course they will add up? Why wouldn't they? :)


Ok thanks :D Going off to start the "The Hoenn Shiny Tour" now. *sweet scenting clampearls are first up*

I'm always a member to the shiny club, no matter how inactive I am. :P

Anyway, I'm always aching to find a new shiny. I havn't really played much in a while, but I've decided to play my Platinum again. I've been battling in the grass leveling up my Pokemon a bit, hopefully by doing so I'll find a shiny. I havn't used the radar in a while but I'll start again soon. The last shinies I've caught from a chain were Hoppip I believe. That was a fun chain. I think I'll consider doing a Sentret chain, I never managed to complete that chain since they failed to cooperate with me.

I, shiny_arceus, hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them.

Yeah, I'm rejoining. Though I wasn't really that active due to school, but that ends tomorrow, so I'll be extremely active.

So anyways, new shiny for me.

I decided to try chaining something in platinum, seeing as its been quite a long time since I got a radar shiny. I headed to route 228, with an impish and jolly syncher at hand. I was originally going to try hippowdon, but a diglett turned up instead. However, that was also one of my long-saught after shinies, so I went ahead with that...

Before I knew it, I made it to 38. I was really tense now. I enter the 39th patch...phew. A diglett. After that I go back to the middle to reset. Now I was REALLY nervous, seeing how hard diglett is to chain, and with the sandstorm and all. Anyways, I reset and...

SHINY PATCH!

I was literally shaking with excitment. Wow, a 5&#37; encounter rate shiny in the dessert. Chaining is awesome. Even though I actually managed to chain a shiny trapinch a while back, I was still pleased. So anyways, I go ahead to catch the diglett. Scizor was sent out and false swiped the blue-nosed mole. I throw my last remaining dive ball and bam, shiny diglett was caught. I checked his stats. He has a jolly nature (sync worked) and arena trap. Sadly, it's IVs are awful, and I know it. But ah well.

The chain is still going, and so far I've managed to snag 5 shiny digletts. I'll probably stop at about 12 shinies or so.

EDIT: Just caught another 2 not even 3 max repels apart from each other. Which means so far I managed to catch 7 shinies in under 50 max repels. I'm really on a roll here.

Congrats on the skorupi and any other shinies I missed.

I wanna rejoin the club because i love catching shiny pokémon and sring for them. I've gotten to know a few great people in the previous club and it's nice to share strategies on catching Shiny Pokémon.

I'm going to read up on everything here in the club.
I Already can congrats the most (non radar shiny) pokémons gotten.

I've been on vacation from Monday so i did not do a lot of srings for my Giratina but i played trough sapphire a bit more while i was in the Hotel and on the Train.

Good Luck to everyone.

Missingno. Master
25th June 2009, 2:14 PM
Well, last night's Natu chaining attempt was a complete flop. Neither chain I did got past 22.

However, I will momentarily begin chaining Tyrogue for the shiny circuit. Wish me luck!

Profile
25th June 2009, 2:42 PM
I, Profile, hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them.

I've been a member for a long time, so I'm not just leaving now. Even though I've been inactive both here and on the search for shinies, due to hanging out with friends, almost going insane due to a class, playing other games, and the current stress of driving lessons/the fact that one of my dogs hasn't been reacting much when I talk to her...

And so far, I don't really have a set target. I'm aiming to just run around in FR/Ruby just to get random shinies, and attempting for a shiny Charmander on LG (Usually LG, Sapphire, and Diamond are my 'always reset the file because I'm bored' games). But due to my short attention span/creative ideas for drawings and comics, I don't see myself getting another random shiny/my first SR shiny anytime soon...

I also probably won't do the Shiny Circuit (Even though I did unintentionally do the first two, as seen in my shiny banner), once again due to my short attention span when it comes to games I've beaten.

But I do have a question - Are there going to be prizes? I can create them on paint (Or draw them, depends) if you want me to. I just need someone to keep me up to date on what's going on in here.

Heh glad the club is reborn anew. I must hunt shinies. Rarest of the rare. Sparkling manifestations of fortune. The thrill of the hunt is great, but finding the target is the greatest. Ehhh yeah basically my reasons for joining. Like I need to ask, really lol. I've been part of the club since the first one.

Anyways, nothing new to report. Was busy yesterday finally beating FFIV (really hard last boss) Today I'm Sring for Piplup, and probably dunsparce hunting too. Hmm I'm still on leg 2 of the circuit because I haven't bothered to chain something yet :p I'm actually farther ahead on the Tour (2 Hoenn shinies) heh.

Congrats on new shinies too.

Hello, I would like to re-join/join this shiny club please! I am a horrible shiny hunter (I only have a shiny Poochyena, (East Region) Shellos, like nearly 5 Swellow from Chaning, and a Buneary from a failed chaining). I love the thrill of getting a shiny, it is just a really good feeling that I have done some thing that alot of people don't know about or have done.

I hope I am in, thank you!

To everyone that requested to join: welcome to the club!

ubernoob; if you really want to, you can soft reset for a shiny starter now, but it won't count towards your total for the Shiny Tour until the last two weeks of the tour.

Profile, you know, I think some artwork of yours would be an AWESOME prize. It's up to you if you want to do it, though.

Congratulations on all the new shinies!

You know, I SAID I was going to chain for Spoink last night...but after my chain broke at 21, I noticed that I wasn't particularly angry that my chain broke. This made me realize that maybe, just maybe, I don't really want a shiny Spoink all that much. Coming to this realization, I went back to hatching Riolu.

After that little change, I realized that a LOT of people from a different forum I frequent have gotten a shiny Giratina-O this month. I'd like to add to that total, so my goal is to get a shiny Giratina by the end of this month. As a result, I will be hunting for nothing but Giratina until July 1st, or until I get it. :) But before I do begin, I made an effort to hatch eggs until my step counter restarts at 100,000 steps. Random, I know, but I'm still adding eggs to my hatching total.

Good luck, everyone! I hope I can get shiny Giratina-O soon.

Yay! Im in. Maybe i might get lucky tonight with my targets.. Ive heard that when you use the pokeradar for platinum it is much easier to chain and it is much more clear, Is this true? If so i might start chaining again after i get my shiny i am hunting.

25th June 2009, 4:58 PM
Back in I think early March, I started over my Emerald, I wasn't going for a "Lucky" ID and what not and I got my Starter, I went into the grass (after receving the pokeballs) and a Shiny Poochyena appierd. I was amazed, I caught it and I park'd it to my Pearl version. I have not played Emerald for ever (Probably from that date) and I want to ask a question.

Is that a Shiny/Lucky ID? Or can shinys just pop up here or there?

Thanks!

You just knew I had to come back. If there isn't a Shiny Hunting Club, I'd be gone from Serebii Forums for good. Shinies are just that great!

In shiny news, I've FINALLY completed the first leg of the circuit and snagged myself a shiny Snorunt at Acurity Lakefront! Its Naive nature and female, so it makes the perfect Froslass! Unfortunately, the desret shiny is being insanely stubborn and won't show up!!! Hopefully I shall get it soon so I can SR for shiny Uxie once again!

Could be both. You never know until you find another shiny, then you can obviously tell if it is an RNG clone. As for me, I have an Emerald version that yielded me my first 3 shinies and it wasn't a lucky file, they weren't RNG clones either.

DarkLatios, you don't HAVE to hunt in the desert for the second leg. You can hunt on routes with Hail, too.

Edit: How did you get all those, RG? If they were all obtained in your games, I must say, you have luck akin to M.M!

25th June 2009, 6:08 PM
Yes I'd say there was alot of luck involved, but my cousin helped me out alot last year because I set out my two DS's and my 3 gameboys and we started hatching and SR and running around for many hours a day. Except for the ones in my sig most of the other shinies were caught by hatching eggs in the various games I had. My most recent catches are Bibarel and Rayquaza. I SR for Rayquaza and just ran into Bibarel as a Bidoof while I was looking for Starly.

My diglett chain ended at 51 and I caught 8 shinies. Only 2 were jolly and had arena trap, but sadly they both had terrible ivs. However, one of the others was hardy with arena trap and great ivs, so for me that's good enough.

Seeing as I start summer holidays tomorrow, I can finally focus on getting a masuda method shiny. My first target is a mudkip with curse. Wish me luck.

So...Can I be a co-owner?(It's kinda late but if you want I can be one.)

No, for a number of reasons, but chief among is the fact that you've only just joined, if we needed another co-owner, we'd have gone for someone who'd been in this club much longer and who'd contributed to the club more.

Welcome to the club though ;)

I've decided to join in the shiny circuit, because there is a soft reset target and a shiny hatchling target i want to get before i start randomly hunting in hoenn

So my targets are thus

1) Poochyena (does that count for leg one of the circuit? i want one to get revenge for the $!""!Ł$ two poochyena i saw while hunting for the hoenn starters)

2) Croagunk (i assume rain counts? if not then swinub)

3) Regice (only one i need to complete the regi set :) )

4) Chimchar (haven't decided on the egg move yet)

5) Not looking forward to this leg, but whatever i can fish up from the waters of fire red :B

That ok fufu?

*Nods* Resident shiny bird addi.... fan present. Rejoining because I like the community feel and it's fun.

I've EV trained my Rayquaza and am levelling him up in Sky Tower now, though I have been reminded of why I didn't get many L100's in my previous file. Stupid, low-EXP giving Mawile and their time-wasting Intimidate. Once I've got Ray' to L100 I might just put Ruby away until I can Pal Park to Platinum.

In the mean-time, I'm thinking of booting Emerald up again. RNGing the last three birds I needed was fine when I was intending to quit shiny hunting but they're bugging me now. Getting a SR'able shiny file could allow me to get Torchic and hopefully Taillow. I want to keep as far away from breeding as possible so I guess I'd just reset for Piplup on Platinum. Still up in the air at the moment, though.

Congrats on the Skorupi and good luck on the hunts!

I have tried soo many times and failed miserably :S. This is a question for people who count their eggs, srs, random encounters e.c.t e.c.t how do you count it?? Because for my next hunt it maybe interesting to see how long it takes :).

Midnight Shadows
25th June 2009, 7:51 PM
I decided to switch my target in Ruby to Duskull, and switch back to Tropius after the E4. It makes sense since I am in the Mt Pyre area anyways, plus it'll be good to level up my team before I face Tate and Liza.

Good luck to all ^^

Also, Day 20 for Uxie and still nothing..it might as well take another week considering my recent luck X.x I really hope it doesn't though >>'

When I was SR'ing for Drifloon last year I was marking every SR down on a bit of paper :) but I'm currently fishing for a shiny dratini/gyrados and I'm counting by how many I do by the hour. I worked out I fish out an average of 3 pokes a minute and just worked it out from there, so my encounter number is always going to be approximated!

Currently at approx. 11,160 encounters and still going, so hope it shines soon so I can move onto chaining my 2nd leg shiny :)

Indeed counting per minute is best. For the eggs you could go for full boxes of eggs then hatch them and put them back, when you got one box full of them then you can release them and name the box 01 (or 30) then continue and after another full box name it 02 (or 60) and so on thats a way you can remember how many boxes/pokémons you've hacted. Random encounters can be counted trough the attacks you do. For example if your pokémon has 4 attacks (that do damage and would kill the wild pokémon) each of 15 PP then the total would be 60 PP keep battling until you only have 2 or 3 pp left then battle at the edge of the grass (or have a pokémon whit teleport/fly/dig then this step would not be nessesary) until all of the pp are used (then you could go for the next pokémon whit like 80 pp in total) and then when you get to the pokémon center count te total of ALL your pokémons PP used and you have the right amount of encounters. I would recommen this only for moves that kill the other pokémon in an instance and moves that work 100% if you miss one move write it down or let your pokémon use struggle once. Thats how i do it. (i hope you understand all of this gibrish)

Ok what i've done is sring for my giratina-o. I'm not counting how many cause i'm watching numbers and sometimes i need to listen closly what they say (i'm not engrish :p) and then i stop sring for a while so it would not be accurate. I can say that i've done more than 1000 by now as i mostly watch 3-4 episodes a day and do around 50-100 an episode.

Anyways good luck to all, oh and S_D congrats on the skopuri it's on my to do list somewhere :p.

RG: Do you have any pictures of your shinies? You have some really nice ones, and I'm sure everyone in the club would appreciate them!

Scorpy: As long as Poochyena's encounter rate is 25&#37; or lower, you can use that for your first leg. Also, leg two is fine; torrential rain counts as excessive weather to me. ;)

Edit: Oh, good news. My cousin is giving me a Sapphire version to use! There's nothing on it, so I reset the game, and I got the ID 12222. I'm soft resetting for a shiny Treecko on it, and I will change my ID weekly. After Treecko, I plan on SRing for Anorith, another shiny Kyogre, then another shiny Latios with the Eon Ticket. Perhaps I'll go for Castform, Regice, Regirock, and Rayquaza afterwards, but I can't promise anything.

I'm also at 2383 SRs for Giratina.

Good luck, everyone.

Shiny Torchic 3, in Emerald... bright picture. Sorry. (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/Heliotrope1987/Shiny%20Pokemon/Other/P1050069.jpg)

... I like collecting shiny Hoenn starters. ^^;


Still hatching Totodile. I was at 1730 eggies the last time I checked. Now I'm only going to check every 99,999 steps (and be dissapointed at how little I can hatch in that time, probably...)

I also did a few Sr for shiny Kyogre (... number two. I keep hunting for multiple copies of shinies. I don't know why. O.o )



Could be both. You never know until you find another shiny, then you can obviously tell if it is an RNG clone. As for me, I have an Emerald version that yielded me my first 3 shinies and it wasn't a lucky file, they weren't RNG clones either.

Well, technically speaking, every shiny in Emerald could be considered to be an RNG clone, since it's perfectly possible for you to start a random battle (or SR) and find that same shiny frame again, which would load up an identical shiny with the same nature/IV's. It is quite lucky that you've managed to find three different shiny frames though.

People should stop calling them "lucky" Emerald files, too (yes, I know I'm guilty of it as well). A "lucky" Emerald file is simply a file that has a shiny frame close enough to the start of the game (IE: from the time you SR) so that you can SR for a shiny (if your firstr shiny frame is at, say, 15 seconds rather than 2 minutes, it's much easier to SR for shinies; seeing as you'd have to wait 2 minutes before every SR...)

Actually yeah i can. lol

"39" breaks were basically the reason why i stopped trying to get to 40 in order to reset. For the past 3 pokemon i've chained, i've stopped the chain at 37 and then reset the radar from there, it was so much easier, and didn't make me pull my hair out due to a "39" break.

Still no hunts here, but that should be remedied tomorrow afternoon(only need one more Jirachi, already got 24/25 natures), when i'll be starting my chaining efforts for Gligar and Scyther, afterall both their shiny evo forms totally own any other shiny form(capable of FSing).

My god Helio, overkill and jealousy come to mind looking at those torchic. I've got one myself(on my sapphire), but damn to have 3 of them, tell me did you evolve the other two, or did you keep all 3 in the better shiny form(which is Torchic).

So, I finally decided to buy an e-reader for the one card I own for it: the eon ticket. I already used this ticket once in my Ruby to get my Latias, my question is can I scan it a second time (or infinite times for that matter) on other games so I can SR for lati@s? (I've already record swapped it to emerald)

Good luck everyone!

ShinyFufu
26th June 2009, 1:37 AM
NPD, you can scan it an infinite amount of times.

Zera, you're in. Welcome back!

2706 SRs for Giratina. From a YouTube video I watched, I got the idea to tape down the L and R buttons on my DS Lite. As a result, I can now easily SR with one hand (I can SR on the DS Lite with one hand using just my right hand, but this requires my hand to be oddly positioned). I also did some SRs for Treecko, but as of right now, it is my least desired target.

I'm glad that it's back up though. I love Shiny Hunting, I only have 4 shinies though (I haven't beaten D/P/Pt yet so no chaining). I have a Zigzagoon, Shuppet, Zubat from random encounter, and a Clefairy that I just got Monday from sring in the game corner. I was quite excited, it was my first shiny in 4 years. ^^;

Oh happy day :D I was sweet scenting for a shiny clamperl. After about 400 encounters a shiny Chinchou appeared! I'm really excited this is my first shiny on Sapphire in all of my years of playing it. I couldn't remember if underwater pokemon could flee so I just used my masterball (matches the evo shiny anyway) stats are as follows:

Chinchou
Lv. 23
Female
Ability: Volt Absorb
Nature: Docile

IVs:
HP: 17
Atk: 21
Def: 13
Sp.Atk: 29 (not bad at ALL!)
Sp.Def: 7 (that hurts)
Spd: 11


So that's my first shiny for the Hoenn Tour. I'm off to find that sneaky shiny clamperl now. Good luck everyone :D

Congrats on the shiny Chinchou, TKoH! Random encounters are awesoem, aren't they? Shiny Lanturn looks cool, too. :D

I'm trying to pull an all-nighter. I've been soft resetting for Giratina the whole time; it's almost 6 AM where I live. O_o SR total is 3402, not including the 100 or so soft resets I did before I officially started counting.

Well, RG, I'd definitely like to see some of your rarer shineis. You know, unique shinies. Specifically, I'd like to see shiny Cloyster, Meganium, Swalot, Tropius, Primape, Octillery, Whiscash, and Armaldo. Preferably in the games you caught them in, too.

To everyone that requested to join, I welcome you! Shiny Pokemon Chaser Ky, would you happen to have a picture of your shiny Clefairy? I happen to be SRing for one, but I could use some motivation...

Good luck, everyone.

Well, people, last night I tried yet again chaining Tyrogue. And, of course, I did not capture a shiny Tyrogue...


I CAUGHT THREE OF THEM! LEG ONE, COMPLETE! YES!

Yes, I captured three shiny Tyrogue last night, all of 'em from the same chain. See, I was doing better with the chain than usual. I had gotten it up to 39. Now, of course I've heard of some people's chains breaking as they try to get their chain to 40. So I played it safe and started resetting the radar from there. Ten minutes later, SHINY PATCH! I entered it, and found myself facing a blue and silver Tyrogue. Now, stupid me forgot to bring something with False Swipe. So I just started chucking Quick Balls. When that didn't work, I tried Repeat Balls, Dusk Balls, Great Balls, and finally, nabbed it in an Ultra Ball. But I wasn't about to stop there. All those failed Tyrogue chains in the past, my game owed me! Plus, I didn't want to be endlessly debating what I was gonna evolve that Tyrogue into. So I went for another. This time it took almost 15 minutes to get another one to show up, but yes, I saw a second shiny patch. This one was just as stubborn, succumbing finally to a Dusk Ball. Not long after that came shiny patch #3. This Tyrogue took only three Dusk Balls. After that, I just carelessly went into any patch nearby to see how far I could get my chain. No more shiny patches after that, but I did get the chain to 49, a record for my Platinum version.

Now....

Tyrogue #1:
Name: TYROGUE

3rd Leg - Codename: Soft Reset
Cranidos (SRing in Mining Meuseum)

4th Leg - Codename: Egg (Moves) Attack!
Makuhita with Faint Attack (using japanese Magmar as father)

Congrats to Shiny Pokemon Chaser ky on the shiny Clefairy, very nice shiny.

Wow a random encounter chinchou, very nice, big plus on the underwater shiny as well, congrats TKoH.

Congrats as well to M.M, Shiny Tyrogue is a *very bad word* to chain, as you found out, so good going managing to get 3 of them.

My chaining efforts failed straight away, go figure, i mean chaining eevee(5&#37;) took me almost 3 years, and scyther(5% daytime) well i just hope it won't take as long, all i do know is it won't happen today.

Instead i'm going back to the circuit, and have gone back to breeding for a shiny horsea(Octazooka/Aurora Beam/Signal Beam), at the same time i'm going to fish in my FR on One Island, either way if i get a shiny it'll count, as i've not switched any of my orders yet.

EDIT: Gonna fish in Vermillion instead for lower horsea encounter rate.

Good luck all.

Only if i had the time and patience to do that :P, im currently hunting a shiny desert shiny and using the pokeradar so i might just join the shiny circuit for a bit of fun :P even though its been going for ages.

Now just to decide what im going to chain..

EDIT: Well my fishing encounter im guessing im only on 2000 encounters now but im stopping for a bit to see if i can pull a pokeradar shiny in platinum.
EDIT 2: Seeing that Nidoran F is under 25&#37; appear rate i might try it.

I've been fishing, too. But I've only done 390 encounters so far. I have to hatch my shiny Totodile before I can consentrate fully on my fishing shiny.

At last count I'd hatched 1845 Totodile eggs (I did check; and I'd hatched 114 eggs in 99,999 steps... I'd been hoping it would be more.)

But now it's the weekend, so I can spend all my time egg hatching. ... And I'm about to do so right now. Good luck guys, and congrats on new shinies. ^-^

To everyone that requested to join, I welcome you! Shiny Pokemon Chaser Ky, would you happen to have a picture of your shiny Clefairy? I happen to be SRing for one, but I could use some motivation...


Sure, I'll see what I can do about getting one. I don't have a digital camera, but my sister does. I'll ask her later if I can use it. If I can't get a picture though, it's just a quiet natured female. :) She's really cute though.

Still no luck on shiny Numel, but I'm going to keep trying. I haven't counted the encounters though, so no idea how far I am. ^^; I would say about 2,000 as of now.

Thanks for the congrats everyone, and congratulations on the shiny Chinchou and Tyrogues. :) Good luck hunting!

So I was in Victory Road. I was battling Onix and Graveler with an Exp. Share on one of my shiny Tyrogue. I was trying to even out its Attack and Defense so it'd evolve into Hitmontop. When out of nowhere, BAM! I find myself face-to-face with a male shiny Rhyhorn! One Quick Ball later, and it's MINE! Jolly nature, Rock Head. Not too shabby, considering it could have LightningRod and worse natures. I've decided to keep it at the Rhydon stage and make use of Rock Head.

I'll start Cacturne chaining for the second leg later. As for my banner, I probably won't find the time to update it with my four latest shinies until sometime later tonight, or possibly tomorrow morning.

Sheer luck. Believe me, I know where you're coming from. I've had Tyrogue chains break in the single digits.

I'm actually gonna be trying to clear off some of the unneeded Pokemon from my PC before I start chaining Cacturne later. It's getting rather cluttered.

I actually tried chaining Cacturne before, earlier today. Didn't do too well.

In other news, I have done about 165 encounters for Duskull on Mt Pyre in Ruby, and should reach somewhere near 29k for Uxie by the end of today. I decided to buy Pearl (finally) and try out the tweaking glitch for Shaymin/Darkrai. Though I am only on my way to the second badge and still need an Abra with Teleport and a Bike :P

As MM said, sheer luck. I've had a chain of Sentret in the 70s and didn't get a shiny out of it. But oddly enough I've gotten shinies from chains unintentionally, which is usually training for the hell of it (That's how I got my Tyrouge). What's worse than a PokeRadar-only Pokemon? The Pokemon in Backlot's garden.

And Fufu, I am willing to draw prizes, but it depends on my motivation and the prize subject. If someone won with a shiny Palkia or a Pokemon with a difficult design, I wouldn't be able to draw it.

And congrats to MM on his latest catch!

I've definitely had that experience as well. Getting to a chain of 40 in Backlot's Garden with Eevees and it took nearly 2 hours just to get one shiny! Yet I've just joked around with chaining and I've picked up a Zigzagoon at a chain of 1, a Chingling at a chain of 1, a Buizel at a chain of 3, and a Starly also at a chain of 3, all very much unintentional.

Luck is an odd thing. :/ Something that's not on my side at the moment. I've gone past 7000 encounters now for my Route 117 hunt and I'm starting to lost hope! ;o;

26th June 2009, 11:50 PM
Heh, you're right about that. I've gotten my Farfetch'd at a chain of 5, my Plusle at 11 and 36, and Houndoom at 24. And some Pokemon have taken me forever. Especially Skitty. Took me several swarms. But then there's all those times that everyone's had - Shinies are the farthest thing from their minds, and BOOM one shows up. (Or in my case, you're pretending to be chased by a specific shiny, and BOOM that shiny shows.)

A little for-fun theory I made up is that the games read minds, and have/don't have shinies show up depending on what you're thinking about. But you're right, it's really luck.

ShinyFufu
27th June 2009, 12:15 AM
Lol Profile, I think I agree with your theory. There has never been a time when I was thinking "I'm probably going to get shiny ____ soon" and it just showed up. Usually I'm not even thinking about the shiny, I'm just mindlessly SRing and then it appears. ^_^


As for my hunts, nothing new. My Giratina hunt has seen some serious progress though; I pulled an all-nighter, and though I got a nap later on, I've been resetting for it like crazy. I just passed the 4000 SR threshmark a while ago. Unfortunately, my EXACT SR count is now officially impossible to keep a tab on; you see, I went to the movies with my cousin and brother, and I was soft resetting in the movie theatre while the movie was playing, and I didn't bring my tally sheet to keep track. I'm estimating that I got about 150 SRs in. Tacky, I know, but I want this shiny Giratina. >.<

Even if I disregard those SRs, I still don't have an exact accurate tab on my SR total because my first week of SRing for Giratina was incredibly slow paced...I probably did a maximum of 100 in seven days. But not including those SRs, my exact SR count from June 22nd is 4024...er, 4025 now. ^^ I'm hoping Giratina decides to shine sooner rather than later.

And that brings me to the question I wanted to ask you all!

What is the oddest, tackiest, or most socially unacceptable environment in which you dared to shiny hunt?

Other than the movies, when I go to visit my godmother and her mentally and physically handicapped child, I often bring my systems to shiny hunt. I don't feel particularly bad about it because he often asleep, and communication with him, although possible, isn't soemthing I like to spend my time doing...


I've also been SRing for Clefairly while I SR for Giratina, but not with the same vigor with which I have been hunting for Giratina.

Good luck everyone.

Well when i was sring for my Mudkip i sring everywhere. It's quite handy if you got 3 gba micro if the battery is empty form one you got 2 more and it takes a while cause they have great battery life. So i was actually sring everywhere, on the street, on the bus, on the train, at my girlfriends home, at friends home. I'm also involved into the Pokemon TCG games and i go to TO (organizers) meetings. These are sometimes very important due to how to get new members interested for more price support (for everyone). I even was sringing there and everybody was watching me with crooked eyes. Now that i have it they are all jealous as 80&#37; of those people also play the ds/gba games and now they understand why i was sring all the time.

Good luck to all.

Um...My grandmother's house kinda counts as one, but since we're there a lot for holiday parties and my brother and I are usually the only kids there, we hide in one room and play games/watch TV.

There was also a place where people go for treatments and the like concerning cancer. I chained Magnemite in there once because my mother (2-Year survivor) had to go in for...Something, I forgot, and I had to stay with her because my brother and dad were going to a concert in a different city. I didn't get a shiny, though.

Back in March 2008 I was SR'ing for shiny Regice. I did a few weeks of SR'ing on Ruby 1, and then one day I picked up Ruby 2 and thought "hey, I haven't done any SR at all for shiny Regice in this game yet - maybe it'll appear quickly."

... 7 SR later a shiny Regice appeared (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/Heliotrope1987/Shiny&#37;20Pokemon/Other/SRI1.jpg) O_o

I wish that would happen more often.


What is the oddest, tackiest, or most socially unacceptable environment in which you dared to shiny hunt?

I remember SR'ing for shiny Moltres/Torchic while we were visiting my mother in hospital (while in the waiting room, that is - not in the actual ward). And I always bring my DS/GBA with me when we go and visit her grave. Though I've yet to have a shiny encounter in the grave yard...

I think the only relatively strange place I've hunted for shinies was when I used to chain/SR for Drifloon at college. I'd either be sat on the floor in the corridor doing it, or even SR'ing in some of my lectures under the table :P no idea what I would have done if the shiny had shown up then!

What is the oddest, tackiest, or most socially unacceptable environment in which you dared to shiny hunt?

Well, there was that one time I was visiting my grandmother in the hospital (minor thing, she's fine now, it was long ago).... I was SRing for Latias on Southern Island on Ruby. Then there was that hotel in South Dakota at 2:00 in the morning. I was looking for shiny Minun, but that was where and when I found my shiny Wingull, as veteran members of this club may recall.

Roughly an hour until I find opportunity to chain Cacturne. And even then, I gotta buy more Max Repels. That Tyrogue chain last night, as well as this morning's feeble attempts have all but dried up my stock.

And still no news on my cousin and Ruby version. Once I get it back, I will enter the Hoenn shiny tour.

Oh, and on the subject of the tour, what if you find a shiny that's SRable for, but you weren't intentionally SRing for it? Say you were SRing for an Adamant Mudkip for your starter but got a shiny one first, would that count? Or if you just picked the wrong Pokeball in New Mauville that turned out to be a shiny Voltorb?

ShinyFufu
27th June 2009, 2:25 AM
M.M, if that were to happen, then it would count as a random shiny. It wasn't intentionally SR'd for after all.

I've noticed something funny about Giratina-O. In battle, there is no shadow under its sprite. However, if you throw any PokeBall at it, and Giratina breaks out, there will be a circle shadow under the sprite. Odd, huh?

Good luck, everyone.

I know what you mean. With my newest shiny I was getting tired and it became more about leveling up my Marshtomp so I could beat the E4 and then boom two sweet scents later: Shiny Chinchou.

I'm continuing my underwater Shiny hunt on Sapphire (curse you clamperl), and using the M Method on Diamond to try and hatch a shiny Relicanth. However Shiny Tropius is starting to call me......

I have way too many targets :P

I'm not sure I think it would be my road trip down to South Carolina last December (and the stay at the hotel). I was SRing for a shiny Cranidos. No shiny but I did get an Adamant Cranidos with perfect IV's in Attack and Defense so I stopped.

I've also got great news. It was about 10:30PM last night when i was hatching shinxs but i decided to switch my target to false swipe/seedbomb shroomishs, and i was breeding with a good IVed one too. So i started breeding them while i was watching the NRL when i glance down and see a red shroomish on my 9th egg hatched for shroomishs, OMG i was so excited it showed up that fast, i mean i expected to be hatching for a few weeks lol. I'm going to train this one into a spore/false swiping, shiny catcher!

here's the video please rate!
SHINY! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61gRl9N26wg)

Now i move onto ruby to start the shiny tour (after i finish training shroomish of course) and i'm sweet scenting at route 215 where you find tailow, swellow, swablu, jigglypuff(so badly want a shiny one :D and something else i think (can't remember :P)

I totally agree with your theory Profile, a good example would be when I got my Shiny Clefairy. It was thunder storming, and the power was out, so I decided to pick up my SP and try sring for Clefairy for the first time in like a month. I was buying them 5 at a time, and nothing happened in the first sr. I was like "This is so hopeless." I decided to do one last sr before laying down for a nap, and there was Shiny Clefairy, sitting in the third spot in my party. ^-^

Congratulations on your shiny Shroomish, VTush, it looks niceeeee. :) I'll have to breed for one myself some time in the future. I must say, though, I'm jealous that you hatched it so quickly; I was at 554 eggs for Riolu before I went on my current Shiny Giratina-O huntly only excursion, and not one shiny egg. :(

And I think you mean Route 115 because I'm hunting for a shiny Jigglypuff there as well. :) The other Pokemon you can find is Wingull. I HOPE I GET ANOTHER SHINY WINGULL FROM THAT ROUTE, LOL (reverse psychology for the shiny Gods :p)

Hey everyone, nothing new to report unfortunately. Spent the whole day SR'ing for mudkip as usual. I did some estimations just now, and based on the fact that I can do 3 resets a minute, and I usually spend 8 solid hours a day SR'ing, that means I can do about 1,440 resets in one day. It's probably a little less than that because 8 straight hours of SR'ing seems like a little much. O_O

Fufu, if your theory on reverse psychology is correct, THAN I WILL NOT A SHINY MUDKIP RIGHT NOW. (I hope that works)

Eh, I can't really think of anywhere crazy I reset. I do SR everywhere for the most part; the car, restaurants, friends houses, but nowhere outrageous, as far as I can remember. If I think of something better, I'll let you know. ^^'

Tried on Plat, not as hard. I have yet tried to chain in the desert in the car... D:

I'm getting so fed up in my hunt. I want my shiny so bad, and I hoped that I would have found my shiny much sooner than it's been (since my previous 2 hunts shone before 6000). I really hope a shiny pops up soon, and a Illumise or Roselia specifically. D:

Last night, I tried to chain Cacturne, but found Cacnea instead. I figured, what the hell, and chained them instead. At 31, a Cacturne broke the chain.

I'll try chaining them again. Actually, I'm changing my target to Cacnea, because they're relatively easier to chain. At least they didn't KO my Modest shiny Espeon synchronizer with Sucker Punch. Well, even with the Cacturne, it took a lot of Sucker Punches.

What is the oddest, tackiest, or most socially unacceptable environment in which you dared to shiny hunt?

Niagara Falls on a really bright summer day with the old GBA (no backlight). Who does that? Spectacular view of the Falls, tons of people walking around, and I picked this place to SR randomly instead of taking in the scenary. I could barely even see the gba screen because of the sun's brightness, and I couldn't hear it because of the people and Falls lol. Paid off big time though. Registeel ftw! My 1st 3rd gen shiny too.


Nothing new yet. Dunsparce isn't being pink and I think piplup is a lie, doesn't exist in shiny form. Should probably just go back to Hoenn hunting as that's where my recent luck has been lately... underwater is sounding nice, congrats to whoever got that shiny chinchou.

in your opinions guys and girls.. What is the easiest pokemon to chain thats got an under 25% appearance rate lol?

Well, PokeRadar wise, you can probably get Venonat/Venomoth, Mareep/Flaafy, Nincada, and Aron a little easier if you have Pokemon with a specific ability (Swarm, Static, and Magnet Pull). There are a few more abilities that help with not a specific type, but Pokemon in general (Like Sticky Hold can help make it easier to catch Pokemon while fishing, but that's in Emerald and I don't know if it does the same in D/P/Pt).

As for Non-PokeRadar Pokemon, once again the abilities that attract a certain type can help. But I really don't know what Pokemon is easier to chain that has a low chance of appearing.

I think one of the oddest places I've shiny hunted was when I was on a boat :p. I was coming back from vacation, and we were on a ferry crossing the St. Lawrence river, so I whipped out my DS and started to play Emerald. A few minutes later, a shiny Torchic graced my screen ^^.

Well I haven't touched my games all that much. I was quite busy the past few days trying to get ready for vacation. I'll most likely be SRing for shiny Palkia while I am away, and hopefully it'll shine fairly soon. I'm also going to get back to the final leg of the shiny circuit and fish for shiny Poliwag(I'll take Magikarp/Goldeen if they appear ^^). I really hope that it is a Poliwag that shines, so I can get revenge on the one deleted in Crystal.

Congrats to new shinies everyone. I'll try to post every once in a while, depending on when I can get Internet access.

I hope you have an excellent time on your vacation, S_D. :D

In my opinion, PSHJ's situation is the most awkward to time to go shiny hunting, lol. Did you ever get that shiny Machop?

D_S, about Piplup's shiny form, that's so so true, lol. It's part of the reason why I switched to Turtwig!

Profile, I'm pretty sure that the ability Swarm has no effect on chaining whatsoever, unless hearing the cries of wild Pokemon in the overworld is beneficial to chaining...

4641 SRs for Giratina now. I just woke up, and I'm feeling refreshed. I woke up kinda late today, however, so I doubt I'll be able to get my usual 1000+ SRs in. Oh, and I'm finally returning home today, so I will be able to hunt for Jiggs on Ruby and Meowth on LG once again. ^_^

Good luck, everyone.

Are you sure? I could've sworn Swarm increases the chances of getting a Bug-type. I even got my shiny Weedle by using one of my shiny Ledian, who had Swarm. And I never heard any Pokemon cries in the overworld in Pearl.

Also, if Melee! Pokemon Scramble becomes available for us, will the discussion of shinies in there count?

ShinyFufu
27th June 2009, 4:25 PM
Yup, shiny discussion of Melee! Pokemon Scramble is acceptable here as well.

And Swarm's effect is analogous to stuff like Torrent and Blaze: the power of Bug type moves raises by 1.5 when the Pokemon's HP falls below 1/3 of the maximum. The overworld effect, like I said, merely increases how often wild Pokemon cries are heard. At least that's what the site's AbiliDex says.

kirkeastment
27th June 2009, 4:34 PM
Swarm does increase the number of encounters you get, however it is not specific to bug-types, checked on bulbapedia.

I've hatched 35 horsea eggs today, no shiny but its very early days.

Piplup is not a lie, just don't give up. :) I have some motivation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytVeHKQIpnA) from my Platinum if you'd like ^^ And if you can excuse my random talking >__>"

Congrats on the latest shinies everyone ^^ Day 22 today and should reach ~30k by the end of the day for Uxie. I won't be hunting for Duskull today, because I want Uxie to shine before I go on vacation on Monday.

Yes, you do have to re-apply. ^^ Which you took care of, so welcome back!

So for some reason all of my current hunts seem to be starters. First mudkip in sapphire, charmander in firered, torchic in ruby #2, turtwig in platinum #2, and squirtle in leafgreen.

Is any one down for a starter race?

I'll race you. I'll be SRing for mudkip in Ruby, as its the last of the hoenn starters i need.

Good luck M.M with sneasel, and abra(should get that rather quickly).

Bad luck on the 16 chain break PkmnHu. I think theres a certain number in every persons chain(mine is around 25) whereby if you get to that number, and then the chain breaks, you kind of say "sod this" and change target, but if you were to get to say anywhere from 33-39, your sort of like, "damn so close, you know what i'll try again".

27th June 2009, 9:48 PM
Huh, interesting. Guess that shows how much I know about abilities, eh? >_>

Anyway, I believe boredom possibly makes chaining more successful. My reasoning? Today I was bored and decided to try for Minun at the Mansion Garden. The very first patch I got was Eevee, so I decided 'Eh, might as well try'.

I've gotten up to 40 and just now got a shiny Eevee, female, nicknamed Toeto (after a song, I'll provide the link later). I'm aiming to get a few more (Gonna get all eeveelutions eventually!), so I'll update once I'm done.

I've forgotten how long getting a patch can take, though. X_x I had reached 40 about 2 hours ago. At least my Wigglytuff's gotten some levels.

I also did a few more fishing encounters and a few more SR for shiny Kyogre. But mostly it's been nothing but eggs today.

Sigh. Good luck, everyone.

Blah, chain broke. But one shiny's good. Now for her stats and the like:

Eevee
Female, Level 16
Nickname Toeto

Hasty Nature, Likes to Run

(Checked it's IVs at it's current level, I don't see the point of using level 100 just for some IVs >_> )

HP - 48 (29)
Attack - 26 (24)
Defense - 21 (21)
Special Attack - 20 (6)
Special Defense - 29 (23)
Speed - 29 (29)

Hidden Power - Grass

I'm probably gonna evolve her into a Jolteon. Cause she's definitely speedy.

I decided to scrap my hunt of Clefairy and wild hunt for a shiny from Pokemon Mansion. I'd like to have a shiny of first-class society, coming from a mansion and all. ;) I'm hoping for a shiny Koffing, but I'd really be happy with any shiny from the place. Grimer would look nice, too. I need to breed a Damp Hypnosis Psyduck, however, so I will do that on Emerald once I return home.

Profile, people check their IVs at level 100 because that's when they're completely accurate...any other leve, and you can't be sure. And that shiny Eevee is NICE, you should definitely evolve it into a shiny Jolteon. HP Grass + Hasty nature? That's really a good combo.

I've have been doing srs for my Giratina today, also some more encouters for my diglett. And also some srs in leafgreen for abra (yes a new target, i actully set it up for my gf as she wants to sr for it) i though i give it a shot and got 80 or so abra nothing shined so i'm gonna leave it there for now and give the game to my gf for a week or so. Prolly thats how long she is going to try it and then she prolly quits :p. If she give's up i'm prolly restarting that game as i've caught almost all legendary's there and now i'm not able to sr for them anymore. I'm also thinking of going for an other sr target i'm not sure wich one, Bulbasaur, Torchic or one of the dp starters (in my JP pearl then).

Also whats the best way to check iv's in R/S (from a pok lvl 6)? Give a pok&#233;mon some RC's (got 15 from my beloved zigzagoon pickup) and get it high as possible? or is there a lvl 100 battle your friend mode like in DP?

Ok, PkmnHu, you know that you can't have posts like this in the club. It's SPAM; what does this even have to do with shinies? You now have one strike; please don't do this again in the future.


No news on my hunts, other than I got my Damp Hypnosis Golduck after much frustration...encountering on FR is going pretty well; at first, I encountered about 180 Pokemon per PokeMansion visit, but now I encounter about 250. I will start keeping count now considering that my catching team is now "complete".

For Giratina, I'm very close to 6000 SRs. I would have more, but getting that silly Damp Hypnosis Golduck was fairly time consuming.

Well, it's 4 AM here. Might as well try for another all-nighter, despite my headache.

Hi all,

I decided not to start sr for another starter but for Kyogre as i'm there in my Sapphire game. I'm looking for a second hand Sapphire game atm so i can continue playing sapphire so i will be sring for it until i have a 2nd sapphire. I picked up another ruby (#3) for 2 $ at a flee market (no box or anything but i dont care) maybe i'll find someone on the internet willing to change for a sapphire one. So i have been sr for kyogore and a bit more for giratina-o. Will be doing both some more today while watching Numb3rs. Also my girlfriend started sr for abra in my LG #1 game. I'm not counting it as my shiny's but i will keep you guys/gals infromed about her adventures to the shiny abra.

Swinub 1: Sassy Nature, attack IV of 0
Swinub 2: Timid nature, Attack IV of 17

So yeah, both of them suck incredibly badly.

Yeah... Now that I'm on my 3rd leg, I can really hunt for whatever I want really. I still have Uxie and Azelf free, as well as Heatran, Dialga, Palkia and Cresselia to SR for on Platinum! On the other games, I have even more targets to choose from! So yeah, you can all do a vote on which Pokemon you want me to SR for, as honestly I don't mind.

You can save in a pokeradar chain but if you turn off the game your chain will break, unless you mean reset the radar then you can.

That's usually the face I use for Shiny captures but this is something different. Although almost as good as a Shiny capture :p

Well as some may recall, I sent away my FR game to the UK Nintendo department to try get an Aurora Ticket on my game. Got the address and such (Thanks Helio :) ) and sent it away without doing any research into whether or not they were still doing the promotion. So my game took about a month to come back and I was starting to think I had sent to the wrong place or something but, no, I got a package from nintendo
labeled "Deoxys Download" and I check the game and there is no Ticket in my bag. Didn't care too much though I was just happy to have my game back. So I play through the game (along the way getting my shiny dratini) and am now at moltres.

So I's SRing that while watching Kakadragon's videos on youtube when I come across his Shiny Deoxy encounter. He also included a Video of him receiving an Aurora Ticket from a delivery man at the wireless section of the pokecenter. I was like "Wut!!111 No wai!!!!1". Went and checked the pokecenter and Lo and Behold, a little man in green bearing a Aurora Ticket for me :). Wish someone had told me about how to actually get the ticket but no matter It's mine now and Nintendo didn't forsake me :p. All other hunts are now on hold and Deoxys will be mine!

Congrats on the Ryhorn, Shroomish and Chinchou. Congrats to any others I have missed. Good Luck all.

I've gotten a Mean Looking Golbat ready to prevent Cressy from escaping, so hopefully I get Cresselia shiny quickly!


Good luck with that :D. Still no third shiny from my chain but its at 45.

Good luck on your shiny Deoxys hunt, Mr. Kennedy. You're welcome. When I got my games back one had the Aurora Ticket in the item pocket and the other didn't (so I also lept to the conclusion that they'd forgotten to add the ticket to that game. I soon found out otherwise though when I noticed the delivery guy in the Pokemon Centre. ^^; )

I'm taking a break from my Totodile hatching to do some chaining (yes, me chaining) for today's swarm Pokemon: Larvitar. I suddenly have the urge. Though I probably won't have it for long.

Currently at 2252 Totodile eggs hatched. Please appear soon, shiny Totodile! ;___;

EDIT: The urge to chain lasted about ten minutes, so I'm now back on the egg hatching. I'm doing some hatching in Pearl 1 now (I've only hatched about 100 Totodile eggs in this so far. But this file has given me lots of shinies, so I'm hoping Totodile will be the next.)

Finally, I'm back home. :D

Let's see, my total for Giratina is now 6360. Hopefully it will shine before 6500.

As a sort of celebration for having a Sapphire version, I think will chain for a shiny Seviper on my Diamond version sometime in the future. On an unrelated note, I was able to get a Japanese Male False Swipe Mawile. I will breed it with my female Breloom sometime in the future as well.

But I must get shiny Giratina first. Good luck, everyone.

Well for a change of pace, I'm currently chaining for a random shiny near Stark Mountain. I haven't gotten a good chain going, my highest so far today is 11. I'm hoping to get a good Skarmory chain going, because I want a shiny one for some reason o.O.

Will get back to SRing for shiny Palkia later on, once I get bored of chaining. Not sure of my SR count at the moment, kinda lost track after my 16th day of SRing XD.

Congrats to new shinies everyone ^^.

Hi everyone, congratulations on any shinies. Welcome back ShinyFufu.

Speaking of the Aurora Ticket event in Europe, why are they not doing the same in America? Very few people here got to participate in the event when it was here to begin with, so it seems logical that they offer it in the US as well. At this rate, I don't think they ever will. :/

I bought a trashed gameboy advance today, and I cleaned it up to near mint condition (at least it will be once I receive my replacement screen in the mail). I tried SR'ing on it and I discovered that it is very comfortable, minus not being able to see very well due to the lack of a light. Nonetheless, I'm glad to get my hands on one. ^^

I got nearly 1,000 resets done today, and yet once again did not find a shiny mudkip. However, the night is young, so I will continue hoping for a bit of luck. I have so many targets right now that I have to find my mudkip soon. If I don't, I'll lose my mind. :p

Well that's all for now. Good luck everyone!

*Sigh*

Well, I've spent the better part of the day using the Poke Radar in Acuity Lakefront, going for a shiny Sneasel....

WITH SUCCESSFUL RESULTS! LEG TWO, COMPLETE!

Yes! My latest chain yielded a shiny Sneasel at 9! NINE! Unbe-freakin'-lievable! It was a long fight. After countless attempts to get it into a Heal Ball, I switched to Dusk Balls. I tried to weaken it with my Wynaut, but all it would use is Icy Wind and Agility. Obviously, Mirror Coat doesn't affect it, it being a dark-type. Anyway, here's the stats:

Name: SNEASEL
Gender: female
Level: 35
Exp: 36435
To next level: 3572
Ball: Dusk
Nature: Quiet (smashes head into brick wall repeatedly; Naive synch failed miserably)
Date of capture: Jun 28, 2009
Place of capture: Acuity Lakefront
Level when captured: 35
Likes to thrash about
Likes dry food
HP: 88
Attack: 80
Defense: 46
Special Attack: 39
Special Defense: 61
Speed: 83
Ability: Inner Focus
Attacks: Fury Swipes, Agility, Icy Wind, Slash

I had a Naive Espeon up front for Synch purposes, and yet... QUIET. The epic fail of all natures it is possible for a Sneasel or Weavile to have. Still, a shiny is a shiny. I'll work around it. And yes, I'm evolving her into a Weavile.

EDIT: According to Serebii.net's pokedex, a Weavile can still achieve a usable Speed with a hindering nature, and a good Attack with a neutral nature. Might be worth me while after all.

And for those of you keeping track...

1st Leg - Codename: The Grassy Patch Remained Silent...
Tyrogue (COMPLETE!)

2nd leg - Codename: Desert Storm
Sneasel (COMPLETE!)

3rd Leg - Codename: Soft Reset
Abra (SRing in Celadon City)

4th Leg - Codename: Egg (Moves) Attack!
Makuhita with Faint Attack (using japanese Magmar as father)

5th Leg - Codename: Hook-A-Shiny!
Magikarp (Super Rod in Resort Area, may change to Old Rod anywhere in FireRed)

EDIT 2: Congrats on everyone else's shinies, as I don't trust myself to list them all without skipping at least one somehow. I'm gonna start SRing for Abra within the hour. Wish me luck!

ShinyFufu
29th June 2009, 3:31 AM
Congrats on the Sneasel, MM.

I personally don't have a new shiny, but I come bearing good news.

A few months ago, I let some of my neighbors borrow my spare Diamond and Pearl versions. Thinking that I would never get them back, my mind was set on buying some new ones. But today they found the games and returned them to me.

This means I have two spare games to hunt on! I'm not sure what I will soft reset for on the second Diamond yet; most likely I will tweak for Shaymin/Darkrai or soft reset for Rotom.

Ack! As I check through the games, I've discovered that neither are very far. Sadly Pearl version is farther, so I will keep that save file...I will beat the game so that I may chain for some Pearl exclusives. Later, though. On Diamond, I will tweak for a shiny Shaymin. Hopefully I won't lose my save data...if I do, I will soft reset for a shiny Piplup.

But of course, getting shiny Giratina-O prioritizes everything else. Once I'm done tweaking, I will continue SRing for it. Getting a random encounter shiny on FR is also one of my main goals as well.


Edit: In other news, I actually levelled my shiny Scizor to 100 while killing Pokemon in Pokemon Mansion. :o That was quick...it started at level 89, and my other Pokemon have levelled up quite decently as well.
Good luck, everyone.


Edit2: Well.

****.

Apparently I got the Black Screen of Doom. I was SOO close, too. I got to Fake Sinnoh and everything, but I didn't know where to go afterwards. So I saved my game, opened up the Town Map, and noticed that I was in a black area. So I thought, "No worries, I can just soft reset and start like nothing happened". And now I'm stuck.

****. ****. ****. So close to SRing for Shaymin. :(

Guess I'll just SR for a shiny Piplup on this Diamond version...

kirkeastment
29th June 2009, 8:30 AM
Its not like you'd be able to call the Shaymin legit anyway SF(it would've just been an aesthetical shiny), so its no big deal right.

I'm going to try some chaining today, gonna try for Rhydon or Weezing, as i like the latters shiny form.

ShinyFufu
29th June 2009, 9:17 AM
No, it would have been just as legitimate as any of my other shinies; there's no hacking involved. And even if others considered it illegitimate, I wouldn't have cared because I really like shiny Shaymin, and I'm SRing for it so that I can have it for myself. Furthermore, 64000 steps takes FOREVER especially when you're doing it manually, so I'm just a little ****** that all my "work" ended up being for naught.

But I'm over it. I'm doing this on my Pearl version, an dI'm at 45,600 steps so far. Hopefully I don't mess up again.

6465 SRs for Giratina. Didn't do many SRs today, unfortunately. :(

Edit: I did it, I did it! I tweaked to get to Shaymin!

I'll be SRing like crazy for this the next few days.

Heliotrope
29th June 2009, 10:24 AM
Hey, Fufu, are you doing this on the English or Japanese versions of D/P? Because I didn't think that anyone had found a way to reach Shaymin/Darkrai in the English versions.

In shiny news: I've hatched a few more non-shiny Totodile in Pearl, and now I'm taking a break while my DS recharges, and I'm SR'ing for shiny Kyogre in Sapphire.

29th June 2009, 1:22 PM
Congrats on the Shroomish VTUSH! I'm still sweet scenting underwater (gotta get that clamperl) for a shiny.... anyone what to race for an underwater shiny?

I'm going to post pictures of my Shiny Chinchou later tonight (too lazy right now :D)


Goodluck and may the shinys be with you everyone :P

Nice chinchou! Heh I'm hunting underwater too, so A race would be nice :)


Hi all,

I decided not to start sr for another starter but for Kyogre as i'm there in my Sapphire game. I'm looking for a second hand Sapphire game atm so i can continue playing sapphire so i will be sring for it until i have a 2nd sapphire. I picked up another ruby (#3) for 2 $ at a flee market (no box or anything but i dont care) maybe i'll find someone on the internet willing to change for a sapphire one. So i have been sr for kyogore and a bit more for giratina-o. Will be doing both some more today while watching Numb3rs. Also my girlfriend started sr for abra in my LG #1 game. I'm not counting it as my shiny's but i will keep you guys/gals infromed about her adventures to the shiny abra.

Good luck to all (and especially to my gf :p).

Damn $2 Ruby?! Super deal! Cheapest I've gotten is $9 for a pokemon game. Hmm I've got a lot of sapphires, maybe I can help you out on that exchange...


0_o

That's usually the face I use for Shiny captures but this is something different. Although almost as good as a Shiny capture :p

Well as some may recall, I sent away my FR game to the UK Nintendo department to try get an Aurora Ticket on my game. Got the address and such (Thanks Helio :) ) and sent it away without doing any research into whether or not they were still doing the promotion. So my game took about a month to come back and I was starting to think I had sent to the wrong place or something but, no, I got a package from nintendo
labeled "Deoxys Download" and I check the game and there is no Ticket in my bag. Didn't care too much though I was just happy to have my game back. So I play through the game (along the way getting my shiny dratini) and am now at moltres.

So I's SRing that while watching Kakadragon's videos on youtube when I come across his Shiny Deoxy encounter. He also included a Video of him receiving an Aurora Ticket from a delivery man at the wireless section of the pokecenter. I was like "Wut!!111 No wai!!!!1". Went and checked the pokecenter and Lo and Behold, a little man in green bearing a Aurora Ticket for me :). Wish someone had told me about how to actually get the ticket but no matter It's mine now and Nintendo didn't forsake me :p. All other hunts are now on hold and Deoxys will be mine!

Congrats on the Ryhorn, Shroomish and Chinchou. Congrats to any others I have missed. Good Luck all.

ARgh Deoxys ticket! Jealous, am I. Good luck with that! I should offer a reward for someone in the UK to get me a ticket...

Lol wow the tweaking thing is real? Always thought it was BS. Eh Early Jpn Diamond/Pearl is more fun for me though :D *once again tip my hat off to Zabi for the deal :)*

Anyways did little hunting this weekend because my Bro let me borrow his FFVII and I started playing that legendary RPG...damn and I just finished FFIV lol. Hunting Piplup, the eternal Lie. And have started underwater hunting. Mostly hoping for Clamperl or Relicanth. Good luck everyone!

Huh.

I e-mailed local Nintendo and neighborhood country's for the ticket (also UK) and got always the same response that they are not giving the tickets anymore.

The 2$ was indeed lucky it's 1.50 euro, she first said 5 euro (around 6.5$) but i told the mam who was selling it (old lady) that there was something missing (i did not lie the box and manual where missing) she said ooh well how much would you give for it i said 0.5 euro and she said 1.50 euro (witch is around 2$).

I've been doing some giratina sr's but nothing shines. As i'm typing i'm doing diglett encounters. I'm feeling sick atm due to the warmt here :(. I hope i get a shiny soon and feel better.

lol, thats brilliant, you've got a very shrewd business mind, knocking the price down that much, btw the cart is red right?

Good luck with the hatching Helio and RG.

I'm still SRing for shiny Heatran on my Pearl cart, but i've now changed my Platinum target to Darkrai, for two reasons. One being that its the only ticket event(4th Gen) that i don't have shiny. Two it prevents me from changing my mind over and over, I'm now locked in a location i cannot escape from. :D

You can do it in the English versions, my boyfriend did it just fine and got to Darkrai :P Sadly though he lost his file on the way to Shaymin, but he traded over his Darkrai before he started tweaking for Shaymin.

I'm actually tweaking for Shaymin as of now too xD Getting bored of SRing for Uxie and today is Day 23 and around 32k SRs for it. I really want another SR shiny soon x.x I only have Squirtle, Drifloon, Piplup and Giratina-O xD

Good luck to all :)

29th June 2009, 5:19 PM
Hm...am I smelling a Shiny Shaymin Race in the near future? Only time will tell. ;)

I decided to hold off SRing for Shaymin until I get at least Giratina. I really would like to keep an accurate count of how many SRs I do for Shaymin, so I will SR for it a bit later. I'll have to make sure to hide that Pearl version somewhere, however...

I only have two more days until July begins, so I'll be focusing on Giratina as usual. I'll also chain for a shiny Seviper in Diamond.

Good luck, everyone.

Hi pigglez welcome to the club.

SR shiny's take some time (or if you are really lucky not).

I also had a question. Repel + Sweet scent does that combo work (keep lower lvl poke's away).

Another 30 diglett past nothing shines. Also my girfriend does around 400 abra's a day. Shes keeping up i wondering how long that will be :p.

I'm really sorry for you Narutopokedude just keep it up you gonna feel great when you have it. Do not save your game now. Keep resetting.

Narutopokedude, keep SRing really fast, many including myself have found a shiny poochyena, and then within a few hours found their shiny starter. So don't give up, and whatever you do, do not resave.

Unfortunately Repel + SS doesn't work Redostrike, it attracts any pokemon, regardless of level.

If your looking for an easy pokemon to chain i would suggest bidof at night (but its bidof so its a bad shiny) shinx on route 202 (have a dead pokemon with static at the front of your party) or starly during day. Dont go for pokemon in the mansion/ones that have low encounter rates.

I don't have a clue as to how many resets due to I had to go out and find it each and every reset. But I've got it now, so next to the pixies later on.

Anyways only up to 200 SR's for Deoxys. Hope to pick up the pace tonight. Am feeling very lucky today due to a near-fatal accident in work today which resulted in a laceration to my wrist. Luckily it missed most of my veins but still...

Thanks for the Luck Helio and DS. I hope you find your respective targets also. Good Luck to all and Welcome to the club new member :).

Quick question, what does re-saving do?

I'm up to 1400 SR's for Shiny Torchic on my Sapphire, and I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong...(Does Sapphire have a messed up RNG like Emerald?)

I COKTAL hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them. Just requesting a re-join since I joined like 3 days before the last one closed.

Just on a side note, I finally got my shiny Cresselia after about a month of on and off reseting for it. I don't have a clue as to how many resets due to I had to go out and find it each and every reset. But I've got it now, so next to the pixies later on. I guess I'll use this for the curcuit, so I've got to go: 1,2,4,5. Back to chaining for Gastrodon then.
Has no one else seen this guy's post? Shiny Cresseila is an amazing accomplishment, so congratulations on that! Got any pics?

And I've seen your posts before, COCKTAL, and you've RNG abused for shinies. I gotta know, did you RNG abuse for the shiny Cresselia?

ubernoob - Sapphire and Emerald have different RNGs.

Ah, so none of that nonsense about shiny frames or whatever in Sapphire?

And what about my first question: resaving. What does that accomplish?

ShinyFufu
29th June 2009, 10:45 PM
Yeah, as far as I know, there aren't "shiny frames" in Sapphire. That's strictly for Emerald.

Alrighty, as for re-saving on Sapphire: think of every Pokemon you encounter as being a card in a deck. The deck has an infinite amount of cards. If you encounter a Pokemon, the card that is currently at the top of the deck is taken off, and re-inserted in a random spot in the deck. When you encounter another Pokemon, the next card is taken out and randomly re-inserted into the deck. There are certain cards that produce shiny Pokemon as well. When this "shiny card" is at the top of the deck, you pull it, and the Pokemon is shiny.

What re-saving does is that it basically re-shuffles the deck. This makes it so that after you save your game, the order of the cards is randomized. This means that a shiny can be the fifth or sixth card in the deck instead of being the 19349th or something along those lines.

Of course, this is a simplified version of what REALLY happens in the game (I'm not entirely sure myself, you should ask MetalMario for a more descriptive explanation), but the same logic applies, I believe.

ubernoob
29th June 2009, 10:49 PM
So I should be resaving once every so often when I'm resetting?

I've been playing my Platinum trying to chain a shiny Starly. So far no luck, I managed to get a chain to 30 but it broke. >:0
already have a shiny Starly, but I'm trying to get separate shinies in my Platinum.


I also made a banner for the club, if anyone wants to use it make sure to credit "Arkreis" for drawing the Latias.
This may be my worst banner as of yet, but I'm not feeling creative today.

I have an announcement. After much deliberation, I'm happy to tell you all that I am officially moving DarkDragon back to Co-Owner status. Welcome him with warm arms.

Ubernoob, yes, that's what I do when I SR on the 3rd Gen. I usually re-save every 50 or so soft resets.

Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I FINALLY got some Wii Points today. I'll be purchasing MPR. Dunno what to do with the other 1000 Wii Points, though.

Everyone enjoys shiny Latias, it's impossible to hate it. It's like the most sought-after shiny there is. :P

I decided I'm going to start a Dunsparce chain, I love its shiny form.

Nice chinchou! Heh I'm hunting underwater too, so A race would be nice :)

Mostly hoping for Clamperl or Relicanth. Good luck everyone!

Okay a race it is. :) I was hoping for a Clamperl (when I found the Chinchou) and a Relicanth would be epic. Did about 600 more encounters underwater yesterday, and hatched a few Relicanth.

Going to play through LG sometime soon and then try for a shiny Unown or a shiny from the gaming corner. Might stop at EB sometime this week and pick up a GBA Micro and a few more 3rd gen games.

I MetalMario hereby acknowledge that I have read all of the Forum and Club rules and agree to abide by them.

So nothing new here. I'm still chaining Trapinch in the desert with no success. The chains keep breaking on 4-zone patches. (The sandstorm itself isn't posing a problem.)

Pretty good. Don't forget to mention that a card is taken off the deck every 1/60th of a second on the third-gen games.

Yay welcome back DD as Co-owner! Lol seriously you don't know what else to get with those 1000? There's just so much... Super Mario RPG is probably ultimate if you like rpgs. Kirby 64, because Kirby=win, um Mario Kart 64, star fox 64... yeah I could go on. I also heard original smash will probably come out soon too (europe has it already if I recall).

Welcome to the club, junpearl63. I hope your surgery goes well. You have some nice shinies, too! ^_^

Well, it's June 30th. Will I get my shiny Giratina today?

I doubt it. But I won't give up!

Edit: Yes! Finally! After hundreds of broken chains, disgruntled moans, and tossing my DS Cart in disgust, I FINALLY HAVE A SHINY GROWLITHE!

Basically, I was chaining for Growlithe. I had at least four chains break under five on 4-zone patches, which meant I was being a little to careless. This time, however, I took more care, only going into 4-zone patches when 3 - 4 of the patches were sparkly, and I made sure the 4th zone patch wasn't touching any other patches or on the edges. Then, on a 14 chain, I was resetting the Radar, and a shiny patch appeared! I almost missed it becaues I was SRing for shiny Giratina simultaneously, an dI looked at the last second. :D

I'm in a battle with it now! Even if I get just one shiny Growlithe, I'll be satisfied because I love it sooo much. :D :D :D

Now if only I could have this kind of luck with Giratina...

Yeah I think they found a way to RNG abuse every Pokemon in the game. Really suck I know but we always have our little community here where (most) shinies are still rare.

And I am also skeptical on the Cressie to. As DS said you didn't sound that thrilled. Also the fact you have RNG abused in the past will cast a doubt upon most of your shinies. Just my opinion.

Yay Fufu! Don't know how you managed to get DD back but well done on doing so :)

Welcome back DD :)

Great banner Suicune. Glad to have something to replace the redundant Mr. Kennedy banner in my sig :p

Did reseting for Deoxys last night. In fact a little too late. I was really tired for work today :p. Didn't shine obviously but I am prepared to work my butt off for this one. Good Luck to all and Grats on the Growlithe.

Hi all,

Congrats on the new shiny's if i missed some.

I've been doing diglett encounters most of the time as i'm bored sring for the moment. I'm up to 1907 now still no shiny diglett (or dugtrio). I'm curios witch one comes first. I'm hoping one a diglett but i'm prolly going to evolve it anyways. Will be doing some more srs for kyogre. I'm a bit of the hunt for giratina now but maybe ill add a few days or just going to continue playing platinum and sr for it later or in pearl or one of my other games.

Welcome to the new Members And A very Warm welcome back to DD (*shakes his hand very tight*).

Also my girlfriend is keeping up her abra hunt she does around 400 a day (83 per time in LG so prolly a bit more) shes up to around 1200 she has me hooked to do a gamecorner shiny soon. Prolly gonna do Dratini in my firered game after i have diglett the remaining coins will be going to abra.

Good luck to all.

kirkeastment
30th June 2009, 9:37 PM
PSHJ, thats a great idea and all, however don't forget to level up that chimchar(before you breed it w/ditto) until it can no longer learn any new moves, otherwise the two egg moves(T & F Punch) will most likely be deleted whilst in the day-care couples care.

I've just started to count my SR's using the tally method, and i've done 45 for both Heatran/Darkrai so far. Its the first time i've ever noticed just how slow i'm SRing, and how infrequently. I may decide one of these days to just take a whole night and SR to my hearts content.

Good luck everyone.
