    The fact that the Giratina came from Johto leads me to believe if anything it's been cloned. Funny enough, it'd be dumb to hack a shiny Giratina in HGSS when you can hack in the Arceus to trigger the event and make the legit Giratina, Dialga or Palkia appear since the only hacked Pokemon would be the Arceus. I've actually done it before when I didnt have a DS irl and was stuck with emulation. The Latios I actually suspect to be cloned. Either way I don't really care, they're shiny legendaries, and so far I haven't used either yet. I may eventually make them level 100, but I stumbled upon them and got lucky enough to get them.
    Giritina is hacked. It is in a masterball. The event Giritina would not come in a masterball.

    That's very true, it should be in a pokeball - I know because I have a shiny level 1 giratina and it took me AGES to get because of the very long scene

    Omg I almost had a heart attack! After seeing TopDecking Shinobi & Dangertrout get their shiny Charmanders, I was determined to get mine so I filled 6 boxes of eggs and after only hatching about 1 & a half boxes, it finally shined! The everstone didn't work, and gave me a Lax nature instead of Adamant, but I can deal. I'm just ecstatic!

    I wish mine had been easy. 2 months, and over 4000 eggs.... /sigh. I really hope the next hunt is quick. Good luck in your own Charmander hunt!

    Anyways, I've been alternating between a few different breeds recently, just so I don't get too bored with hatching. Now that I have my Charmander, my main hunts will be the female Bulbasaur I was originally going for when I started hunting this year and a shiny Squirtle to complete my Kanto starter collection.

    Well whether or not the Giratina is a hack I am still happy to have it and am pretty sure you can reset over and over to get it. I think I did that event on my No$Gba emulator which requires you to actually save instead of saving game states like the Desmume or the Visual Boy Advanced. Still working on the shiny Swablu too.

    I can barely believe this happened. So last night, I was laying in bed playing pokemon. And I was going around in front of the daycare waiting for an egg. Just after midnight, so technically Easter, I saw a patch of grass shake. I thought, yea, exp points. So I went into it. Right when I did, I thought, wait, it won't be much exp for my high level pokemon. But up pops a shiny Audino. So not only my first random encounter nice looking and definitely different than regular colored pokemon. (You know, not like Gurdurr.) It also happened to be an Eastery looking one. I saved a few times, and I had to check this morning to make sure it really happened, lol.

    For Matsuda Method does the language have to be different or just the country such as a Watchog from Albania and my Oshawott from US verison would that work because the name is just a bunch of letters so I cant' tell if other language

    The language has to be different. I don't know if Albania has the games translated into Albanian, but if they do, it'll work.

    Wow, so many shinies lately!! Congrats to everyone! I've been very slow on stocking eggs. I've only stocked 120 out of 450. I'm about to check my Platinum to see if I have the Eevee day at Backlot Mansion. If not, it's back to stocking eggs. :/

    Thanks for the Grats everyone. I'm not sure what to hunt for next. Anyone have any suggestions? I kinda wanna take a break from hatching eggs after I hatch the rest of my charmander eggs and try REing for one.

    How about REing in either Route 14, Victory Road or Dragonspiral Tower for Mienfoo?

    Is it true that your Trainer Name is the deciding factor of how many shinnies you actually encounter?

    absolutely not. If thats all it took then shiny pokemon would be a dime a dozen. What determines if a pokemon will be shiny or not is your ID/SID combo in conjunction with the Pokemon's Identification Number (PID). When an egg is retrieved from the daycare man the game determines the PID of the pokemon inside and then runs a check to see if this PID, working with you ID/SID combo, will make the pokemon shiny.

    Nope. The effect of Flame Body doesn't stack up.

    Two Volcaronas won't make your egg hatch faster any more than it would with one Volcarona. Using one is enough and is all you need.

    Decided on a new challenge for myself. Gonna SR the unova trio. Been resetting for cobalion for a few days now, not been counting but defo over 1000 by now. This should be interesting since I'm not a big reset fan. Can't wait to get onto Virizion!

    I see what you did thar. *brohoofs* lol.

    If I soft reset anything it'll be Terrakion since I haven't gone to get him yet. Also I'm pretty sure I can wall the !@$#!%$ out of it till I catch it when a shiny appears. I may pick up shinies of all the weather inducers. Politoed and Ninetails will be a problem though...

    I've been hatching Ponyta eggs for quite a few days now, I believe I am up into the hundreds at this point. I'm not keeping track, because it would just discourage me.

    As opposed to stocking them up in the PC Box, I've just been grabbing them when the old man yells for me to come get the egg, and hatch them five at a time. I'm wondering whether all that RNG stuff comes into play with eggs at this point, like frames, NPCs, and whether I'm ruining my chances by talking to the old man so much.

    I'm considering switching out the Ponyta with Porygon and trying my luck at that. Though, I'm wondering whether it would be easier to just SR at the Game Corner in HG.

    Ugh. I got spoiled by my random Tepig a few days ago, this is kind of grating.

    Best of luck, everyone. And congrats to all recent shinies. Especially 2rsa, hopefully Rarity will show up soon to accompany Twilight.
