I don't think I'd have the patience to reset for a shiny Rayquaza. I haven't tried, I only reseted to get a modest one. And, I did.

Nah, I've told him how rare shiny pokemon, and that he should not trade shiny pokemon for anything(unless someone offers him a pokemon with near all max IVs), so I don't think I'll get him to trade it to him. Besides, it is his first shiny pokemon!

OR should I give even efforts to each Shiny.

Fire Red is evil I tell you! It refused to give me a shiny no matter how hard I try. Its like Demonic and his Treeko search! Then again emerald took me 150 hours just to see my first shiny but I wasn't looking that whole time either so in fire red I was.

As you can tell from my sig, Porygon is next. But before I go for Porygon, there is something I have to take care of.

I tried going for a shiny Porygon earlier. I spent all my money on getting coins for it. However, I accidently kept a regular Porygon somehow, so I wasted all my coins and all my money. So I'm using the Vs. Seeker to battle some other trainiers. On the bright side, this is a good opportunity to train my current shinies.

21st June 2006, 6:53 PM
bagon eggs take 10240 steps to hatch. if he runs into them faster than he hatches them, then it's a better way.

i'd prefer breeding, anyway, so i could have more control over moves/IVs/nature, but that's just me.

Yes, Bagon eggs are of the group which take the longest to hatch. It's your choice though.

'course, if you have Emerald, it's only 5120. i prefer breeding, i find it a pain to search in the wild for something because you can find other pokemon, not just what you're looking for, therefore, it opens up the possabilities that you son'w get the shiny that you want. i'm not saying that it's a horrible thing to find the wrong shiny, but what if he finds a shiny Solrock? they aren't much different from a normal solrock. that's why i prefer breeding, plus, it calms me.

If its shiny the 2 gold orbs will go around it when you send it out. If it doesn't then its normal. Preety simple.

Oh, I thought i already posted this, but when I get to Celadon, I will SR for Eevee for two weeks. If I don't get it, I will just come back after I beat the E4. I will also SR for Abra for two weeks. Hopefully, I will get them both.

eDiT: My lil' bro suggested this, but I may also soft reset for Dratini once i get to Celadon. However, I am not sure if I will do this cuz I will already be bored with SRing for Eevee and Abra(unless I get them shiny) so I will SR for him for only about a week.

Oh, I didn't know you were going for one too...if you want me too, I will stop searching for it...

No! No! :(

I didn't mean it like that Lionheart! ^^; I was just joking... trust me, I don't care. I should have mentioned it though... I'm sorry. ^^;

Besides, I'm glad someone else likes Sneasel's Shiny Form as well... so it's okay.

Oh, I thought i already posted this, but when I get to Celadon, I will SR for Eevee for two weeks. If I don't get it, I will just come back after I beat the E4. I will also SR for Abra for two weeks. Hopefully, I will get them both.

eDiT: My lil' bro suggested this, but I may also soft reset for Dratini once i get to Celadon. However, I am not sure if I will do this cuz I will already be bored with SRing for Eevee and Abra(unless I get them shiny) so I will SR for him for only about a week.
Meh. I only SR or Breed for 3 days before I quit. It seems easier to find other places where the pokemon you want are and then just train. You'll run into one sooner or later.

it was really lucky when i caught it

I was trying to run to Petalburg city
(the one with Norman as gym leader...I think)

and I just completed elite 4.... and suddedly a Poocheyana appears.. and when i was abotu to run away... I notice its color!

but all my pokemon would 1 hit kill.... so I threw ultra balls till it finally gave in and became my only shiny! other than gyrados in G/S/C

Heh. Yeah, I was trying to get the original eeveelutions and Eevee to be shiny, all that I have are Jolteon and Vaporeon. I'll try for a Flareon and Eevee later, I'm tired of hatching egg upon egg upon egg...

ShinyFufu
22nd June 2006, 6:10 AM
Yeah, I am trying to get all the eeveelutions and eevee shiny. I want to have at least one spare shiny eevee, in case there is a new evolution for D/P, which I highly expect there will be... I hope it is grass type.

Golden_Latias
22nd June 2006, 6:17 AM
IMHO, I think peeps are getting shiny Eevee becuz all silver eevee is nothing short of smecksi.
Espeon and Umbreon are smecksier :p.

I doubt they'll make a new Eeveelution, but if they do, it'll be a Rock or Ground Eeveelution. Here's why:

Vaporeon's best stat:HP
Jolteon's best stat:Speed
Flareon's best stat:Attack
Espeon's best stat:Special Attack
Umbreon's best stat:Special Defense

Notice that only Defense is missing. However, Eevee's best stat is Defense, so I doubt they'll make a new Eeveelution.

22nd June 2006, 6:33 AM
Yeah, i guess it would make sense for it to be a phsyically defensive type, but all the eeveelutions so far(not including eevee itself) are special types. So, maybe they will at least make a special type, but not specifically a grass type... heck, I wouldn't mind seeing a Dragon type eevee.

Anyway, I have been hatching for a shiny corsola, and did about 200 eggs and gave up. I have also left all resetable pokemon (the legends etc) for soft reseting in the future.

Meh, I am temporarily giving up for Eevee. So I can resume my hunt for Treecko. I figured Treecko is higher on my priority list becuz the ID I have on FR is already gonna be the one I am keeping, and that ID got me a shiny charmander in 5 days, so maybe it is lucky. So, it would be logical to hunt for a Treecko, so I can hopefully get a lucky ID on there too... I am gonna get a new ID on Em every week. Today is the 22nd, right?

I guess I'll just start over in how many I counted, since I lost the sheet i was keeping track of them on, but I am gonna use MM's method of counting.

It is not possible to know if only attack EV's are filled up. You must count them. You can only know if all 510 EV points are done with a ribbon given by wooman in Slateport's outdoor sales area.

No luck on the abra from the game corner, as it seems that I won't get a shiny that I'm intentionally looking for in a good while...I just want to show up soon...

demonic, I'd like to wish you a formal Good Luck. (I don't like PMing without a good reason.) That game owes you a shiny after all this time. (But knowing your luck, I'll have one first. o_0)

Traded my Shiny Tangala back to Fr so it can be used on my Fire Red main team. Got it in trades for a level 5 Kabuto during the Deoxy's event early last year. :P
Still also trying for Shiny Abra/Dratini on Fr and Shiny Mewtwo on Lg, but all my focus is on training my team and getting my Mudkip(Sig says 265 restarts so far. :P)

How did you get Mew? U can't get it in FR/LG. And, it is not available anywhere in the world, except for Japan, and it has already been distributed.

Still going for Tangela :D I'm using my newly captured Fearow and Raikou to faint those Tangelas - so I won't run by accident if it's shiny. Also gave my Persion (evolved Meowth by mistake >_>) an Exp. Share so he can survive those damn Tangelas :P He's using Pay Day, because I'm _REALLY_ low on money :p
That's a good idea! xD. I should use that to get some more money so I can get started on Porygon.

I hope my sapphire Id is lucky, it only has two numbers repeating, 3 and 5, cause mine is 13355. My fire red is kinda similar to that one, cause it's 56776. I hope I don't lose anymore shinies. I lost a mawile, and most recently, a golden exeggcute in the safari zone in fire red. It was an awesome gold color, and it fled after I threw one ball...unbelievable...I could've had my sixth shiny a long time ago, going for the seventh...I like exeggutor's shiny color too. That's why I don't go to the safari zone anymore.

I can understand if you wanna test your skills or somethin, I thought that nidoran was gonna break out of the first ball, but I nabbed it with my first ball on the first try. Very lucky indeed.

o.O You're crazy. I got my shiny Nidoqueen as a shiny Nidoran from the Safari Zone due to sheer dumb luck. The thing could have fled anytime after it broke out of the first Safarai Ball, but I'm lucky it pretty much just sat there for me to catch it.

Nah! i dont think your ID numbers have something to do... since ive played the game many times (the ID changes)
and almost everytime i get one or two... hey maybe im the lucky one... :) ive gotten from a cute little igglybuff to a superb Metagross...

ShinyFufu
23rd June 2006, 9:59 PM
Say it loud, I am crazy and proud. I dunno, I just think a shiny caught in the safari zone would be really special to me, seeing as how I caught a pokemon that could've easily fled on the first poke ball, especially since u caught the pokemon with full HP. Like, if I caught a shiny Nidoran, then one day i caught a shiny Electrike, the Nidoran would still be more special to me than the Electrike, even if the Electrike family does look cooler.

Cathing almost anything in there is based on your luck. If I ever went back in there and saw a shiny chansey, I'd cry, cause they have a low catch rate, I think.

Yeah. =/ I went looking for a Chansey with a Lucky Egg, and out of like 25 I only caught three. So that'd be the last shiny I'd want to run into...

You'll want to hear this. I ate a fortune cookie, and it said success and happiness was coming my way. I then SRed for the shiny treecko i was hunting, and i got it in 5 tries. After 3 encounters of pokemon, it got pokerus, and had like 10 critical hits in a row. Is this a glitch, or the charm of the fortune cookie?

Congrats on the treecko though, you gotta love that thing. See, I knew you'd get it. Now that you've got yours, I might look for one myself too. And pokerus too!?

Demonic, you aren't unlucky. In fact, I'd say you were a little luckier than average. Think about it. You've seen 7 shinies out of 26,000 resets (and so, 52,000 pokemon). That's one shiny every 7,428. That beats the shiny probability by about 700. If anything, you're demonstrating that the chance really IS 1 out of 8,192. You're just not getting the right one out of the two to be shiny. Keep going...you'll get it!!!
