    I traded a legit deoxys for a shiny dusclops at the toysrus event yesterday...


    Shinies: Lots from chaining, several from SRing, a couple random ones. Just ask if you really care.

    Still looking for shiny charmander, reset for a while yesterday when I was in line waiting to get my mew, but, no luck. I feel like I'm getting close, though!

    Don't feel too bad. I've seen that Poochyena shiny *four* times altogether in my shiny hunts.

    Well, I've been shiny hunting since 3rd gen came out, but since I just recently registered on the forums, I'll just quickly go through my list of shinies and anything noteworthy about their captures.

    The first shiny I saw was a blue Medicham in the Sapphire Battle Tower. I was a bit angry, but not too much because back then I wasn't as "into" shiny hunting as I am now.

    My first obtained was a purple Swampert, I believe it took a little over a week of SRing to get it. Named "Big" after Big the Cat from Sonic Adventure (who it resembles). Next I got a shiny Zigzagoon from the Berry Glitch Fix which is now a Linoone. I got a shiny Castform after six days of SRing. All three of these came from Ruby.

    Next, while EV training my team of six in Sapphire, I came across a dull pink Numel, which I named Milky and is now a black Camerupt. In Sapphire as well I hatched a red Cyndaquil which is now a Quilava named Mr. Motza.

    I went back to SRing on Ruby version for a pink Anorith, which came to me after about two weeks.

    Next was a green Golbat which I found in Leaf Green after a few months training in the Icefall cave (I was actually looking for a Seel). I named it Medianoche (midnight in Spanish, because I caught it really late) and it is now a pink Crobat which is a formidable member of my Leaf Green team (even though it's Modest X_x.

    Next, my friend caught a green Spinda in his Emerald version but didn't care much about shinies so he let me have it, named Odyssey.

    Next up was a shiny Regice in Emerald, which took quite a long time to find. It got to the point where it almost Struggled itself to death, so I had to use my Masterball on it.

    Next was a Torchic that I had been hunting for on Ruby on-and-off for about two years. This was the hunt during which I had seen four shiny Poochyena. But last summer I finally got the shiny Torchic, Modest natured (X_X) and named it Ebony, after the near-black color its feathers are as a Blaziken.

    Number 11 was a shiny Totodile which I reset for for only about three days in front of Birch after completing the Hoenndex in Emerald. Adamant natured, named Correolas.

    Soon after that, I found a Meowth while training in Route 6 for about a week. I named it "Peso" and trained it into a lovely lighter Persian.

    My most recent shiny was one that I have been hunting on-and-off since FR/LG came out, and I finally got it three or four days ago: a white Eevee in Fire Red. I named it Angel and have not evolved it, using it as a very valuable member on my FR team.

        Spoiler:- DP Spoilers:


    Yup, those are all 13 of my shinies, all legit. I know it looks like a lot of my soft-resetting took a very short time compared to yours, but that is because I am very ADD when it comes to SRing. If I don't get a SR shiny within a couple weeks, I usually switch my hunt. While most of these shinies took a short time to get, there were also many hunts (all three Kanto starters, Treecko, Southern Island Latias, Snorlax, Groudon, Kyogre, Berry Forest Hypno, Kabuto, etc.) which I have pursued for months and gotten bored of. That's the reason most of my successful hunts have been short.

    Now I pose a question of ethics to you all. I really like the shiny forms of Eevee, Espeon, and Umbreon. Would it be fair to clone my Eevee in Emerald to have all three of them, to make up for the five uncatchable shinies I've seen? I want to, but I don't know if it's really fair. I do consider cloning for trading purposes fair, but I don't know about this.

    I'll admit it, I'm quite jealous of you're shiny collection. Even though I've really only started true shiny hunting in April when I first found out about shinies, I wanted something like 7 by now. I'm especially fond of my shiny Eevee, too, and I'll be saving it for D/P. If I may ask, what are the natures of your shinies?

    Also, my cuzin gave me his Sapphire, so I'll be using it to soft reset for Torchic. I'll switch every other day to Porygon, then I'll switch to Groudon, then back to Torchic... I typed a post that made more sense in the Shiny PKMN Lovers Club, but it was quite lengthy, and I forgot to Copy and Paste it.

    *checks quickly*

    Swampert is Careful, Linoone is Bold, Castform is Gentle, Camerupt is Naughty, Quilava is Rash, Armaldo is Bashful, Crobat is Modest (X_X), Spinda is Impish, Regice is Brave (EXPLOSION! XD), Blaziken is Modest (useless in DP :O), Feraligatr is Adamant (Bite + Waterfall + Ice Punch + Adamant = PWNING in WiFi ), Persian is Modest (X_X), and Eevee is Brave.

    It's funny that you're jealous of my collection, considering you have a shiny Charizard (which is like the super amazing shiny EVERYONE wants :-P).

    What do you think about cloning? Have you ever considered cloning your Eevee to get some of the evolved forms shiny? I love mine the way it is, but I want Espeon and Umbreon and I want to take it to Pearl too. ;_;

    EDIT: I forgot to mention, technically my 12th shiny was a shiny Kecleon, but seeing as how I had been soft resetting for a while and decided to let my friend have a go for it since he really wanted to, the blasted thing decided to show up while HE was SRing and I decided to give it to him for that reason. How's that for generous? :-D

    Hate to break it to you, but apparently the Red Garados is making a comeback in D/P. Kind of pointless trying to get one in third gen....

    Well that much is true I suppose. But third gen. will probably end up like the other generations, no one will play them. At least I probably won't after a while.
