    Default Longest Pokemon Shiny Hunt?

    Well, at the moment in Dragonspiral tower, im hunting a Druddigon.

    And i've reached up to 17,000 Random Encounters.

    Seriously it's doing my head.

    So, longest hunt?

    Litwick took me 4 or 5 encounters. Mainly because I didn't know what I was doing wrong at first.

    But my head's down on the pavement, wondering where the years went
    All the time I spent, under eyes full of contempt
    My mind's still a crutch as I stand at the edge of what's ahead, I'm frozen instead

    I've been at my MM hunt for shiny Trapinch for several weeks. I lost track of how many eggs I've done a while ago.

    That will take you a while if you're just doing the random encounter method. Surprisingly the only shiny I ever had was from a random encounter.

    Lugia was the longest hunt for sure, taking over 10,000 resets, and that was after a break from hunting it after losing track of my SR count.

    My Mudkip. Im past 10,000 SRs and still no shiny.
    Within my lifetime, I've done a lot of walking. I started my journey walking on a little path called Route 1. Little did I know that walking down that route would lead me onwards to a road that went by the name of Victory. Just west of Victory Road, I walked up an entire mountain where atop stood a silent trainer who was one of the mightiest I had ever faced. I've walked, through sandstorms, across the hard desert of Hoenn. I've walked through pelting hail, across the snow covered terrains of Sinnoh. And now as I look back on all my travels I find myself walking across the Skyarrow Bridge of Unova. It took a lot of walking through tall grass patches to get where I am today...But it was worth the walk.

    I MMed Porygon for about five days. I gave up because I was on vacation at the time and didn't want to waste all of my time performing a fruitless task.

    I tried to get a shiny Rayquaza in Emerald for a long time. I kept count, and I'm glad I did. 10,489 resets. Never found it...

    Also, I don't think you can get a shiny Zekrom
