    Well, after 27,910 encounters between Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, and after leaving my Emerald version on for well over a month...

    I found a shiny Geodude in the Magma Hideout. Meh. I was initially excited when I saw it scrolling across the screen. I mean...almost 28,000 Pokemon? That's a long hunt, lol. But still. I REALLY wanted a shiny Torkoal...Anyways, I didn't bring a Pokemon with Damp with me, so I just tossed a Master Ball at the shiny Geodude. It has a Docile nature; I have no idea what its IVs are.

    I will definitely evolve it into a shiny Golem. I've always wanted one anyway.

    Does anyone on here remember the shiny Zigzagzoon that you could get at Gamestop? I remember I trained mine to level 100 without evolving just because, not sure why I did that.

    Nope. Zigzagoons are the messengers of evil. I try to stay away from them.

    After giving up on SRing for Shaymin(11000 sr's were tiring on a game),I thought SRing another legendary would take a long time as well.Guess what I got today?

    SHINY RAYQUAZA

    Hells yeah.In fact,I managed to get it without regarding the DS the cartrige was in.And today's the first day I treated it seriously.In all,I must have spent probably 4 hours SRing,maybe 5,but considering Suicune took me 10 days
    and I gave up on Shaymin after literally over 9000 tries,its a pleasent suprise.Here's the details on it

    Nickname:Ziz Prime
    Gender:Unidentified
    Ability:Air Lock
    Natureocile
    Method of capture:Master Ball(its Lv 70,and my Pokemon weren't prepared for it)
    Game caught:Ruby
    Moves:Fly,Rest,Extremespeed,Outrage
    HP:248
    Atk:220
    Def:139
    Sp.Atk:216
    Sp.Def:143
    Speed:147
    Reaction:Threw Master Ball,praying it wouldn't break for some reason and the power wouldn't run out.Flew back to Pacifiglog and placed it in the Legends area.Saved twice.Turned the DS off,then on,afraid something might happen and I didn't catch it.RELIEVED I DID.Posted here

    After painfully 11,618 RE's on my US Sapphire, a wrong shiny finally appeared. It was the victory bat '_______'
    I got it on last 22/02/11 actually. It becomes my second shiny Zubat. The first one I got from double battle hunt in Wayward Cave.
    I don't show the data pic as I want to keep my real shiny target as a secret.^^ If it'll ever shine/appear of course.
    The hunt continues.........................

    Slip of tongue. I tried to make out w/ my newest shiny.

    Congrats to all recent shinies above me. Good luck to everyone.

    You guys have much better luck with shinies than I do. I have been working on getting a shiny Bagon for awhile now.

    Keep at it. Sooner or later (preferably sooner), your Dragon will shine green. How are you resetting for it?

    Smile


    I got another shiny in third gen.^^
    Shiny Paras appeared after 11,129 RE's in Mt. Moon on my JP LeafGreen.
    It took me almost 2 months, 13/01/11 - 08/03/11, but it's all worth it in the end. Well, like every hunt if it shines, lol.



    It appeared after 477 RE's I did that day.

        Spoiler:- More mushroom:


    This is my second shiny after shiny Bellsprout awhile ago (I've posted here too). Too bad, I migrated the Bell w/out nicknaming it first.
    So far I've got 8 shinies from my 3rd gen games.
    Dunno bout you guys, I find it harder to get shinies from 3rd gen than from the other gens.
    My next hunt on LG/FR would be one of the Kanto starters.

    Good luck everyone.

    Newest Shiny on Emerald a few days ago. This one was caught while EV training Duskull in Petalburg Woods. I only threw an Ultra Ball because I was too scared to damage it. It has the same IVs as the Spinda I caught because it's an RNG clone. BTW I did not RNG this guy and I don't know how to anyway. I caught it on the same day my bro and sis got B/W, so I guess we all got something on that day. So here it is:

    I tried evolving it and it turned into Cascoon. I really wanted Beautifly but a shiny is a shiny.

    Well I was hatching Smoochum eggs the other day after breeding a Jynx with a Ditto, and I hatched a Shiny Smoochum out of one of the eggs. I was pleased with it but I wanted to have a Shiny Jynx so I went ahead and trained the Shiny Smoochum and it evolved into a Shiny Jynx a little while ago. Here's a picture of the status screen. It's a pretty basic Shiny Pokemon but even though it's nothing too amazing, I still like it. I don't actively hunt for Shiny Pokemon in the Generation 3 games since I usually spend my time doing all sorts of challenges in those, but I think hatching a Shiny Pokemon is pretty darn cool. I'll start hatching more eggs so that I can hatch another Shiny Pokemon.

    Hey guys, so I just got my shiny Charmander a while ago. I've been hunting for this little guy on-and-off since May last year so I'm glad it's finally over. I don't even know how many soft resets it took but it definitely goes into the thousands. Here's a pic:

    I haven't fought Gary yet but I'm really looking forward to going through my LeafGreen with my new shiny Charmander. His nature is pretty decent too. Overall, I'm very happy that it decided to shine today.

    I believe I found a shiny Zubat and Numel, but I believe I killed them. I did catch a shiny Mawile in Ruby earlier this month though. It was in Sky Pillar.

    I restarted Emerald recently. I got a random shiny wingull about an hour ago. It's bashful nature though. Oh well, it's a shiny.

    Anyway, Is it really much more difficult to get a shiny on Emerald than on Ruby/Sapphire?
    I restarted it so I could go for some shiny legends.

    It is definitely LOADS more difficult getting a shiny in Emerald because it works on a broken, fixed PRNG. It's hard for me to explain but it's not worth shiny hunting on Emerald unless you know you have an early shiny frame, because otherwise you will NEVER get a shiny. It's much better to shiny hunt on R/S (if the internal battery is still alive) because the PRNG is still random and not fixed.

    Oh, I guess I'll just restart my ruby/sapphire to SR for shiny pokemon. I heard nature synchronizing on Emerald Legendaries doesn't work anyways.

    I just restarted my emerald too, my favorite region ever, but it's really that hard? Wow, my ruby's internal battery is gone, is that one a better choice to shiny hunt on or no? How would I find out my frames on the game? ouo

    If your Ruby/Sapphire's internal battery is dry, then your game's RNG basically acts the same way as Emerald's RNG. I don't recommend shiny hunting on that game either unless you know if you have an early shiny frame. And you can find out your frames using your Secret ID, but to do that, you need either some kind of external device (you know) or a shiny you have already caught. This will give you all you need to know about the RNG.
