    *Yesterday
    I just hatched a Naive, Hustle Nidoran(male)... on the 8th egg!
    Perfect Sp.Attack and Sucker Punch as an egg move (although I wish the perfect speed was passed as well considering both parents had 31 Speed & Sp.Attack). I’ll try to post pictures in a few days.
    That’s the fastest MM shiny I’ve ever gotten, plus with the ideal Nature and Ability - and pretty much the whole time I was boxing eggs I thought “please don’t be a female with something dumb like Rivalry...”


    So then I decided to begin the shiny Slowpoke hunt (since I had a female, Regenerator from Japan). This too turned out to be a quick hunt because after only 3 or so boxes, I hatch a shiny one: Jolly w/ Oblivious....seriously... I still plan to evolve it into Slowbro, but I doubt I’d actually use it for anything.

    nidoking_omega Theory: Mime Jr. is a good Baton Passer. Verdict: True. Supporting Evidence: It has hands. Therefore it can hold a baton. It can also pass the baton because of its hands. Therefore, if it doesn't drop the baton, it is a good baton passer.
    KoopaBros4Lyfe: Exactly, it's hands down the best BPer in the game.
    lil_BowWow: yea, I'd like to see ninjask or jolteon try to hold a baton.

    I'm still working on my Shiny Dratini hunt... and have branched out into breeding for one. Might as well hedge my bets there... since the regular hunt hasn't been going too well.
    Looking forward to the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.



    Will be training up the shiny Abra I have that's named Robin in honor of you. May you R.I.P.

    Recently I was wondering if I should MM for a shiny darmanitan or SR for it, so I did some light math. I'm thinking these results might help some people for catching DW shinies. When SRing, each capture has a 1/8,192 chance of being shiny. When MMing, each egg has a 1/1,365.3 chance of being shiny, but a 50% chance or 33% chance of having their DW ability.

    -SRing for DW ability: 1 in 8,192 chance.
    -MMing for DW ability(only one natural): 1 in a 2,730.6 chance.
    -MMing for DW ability(two natural abilities): 1 in a 4,095.9 chance.

    So, that concludes it's always better to use the Madusa method then to soft reset, even if it has a dream world ability and two natural abilities.

    That doesn't apply because you can't get shinies directly from the Entree Forest. To get a shiny with a DW ability, you need to MM it. The only DW shinies you can get from SRing are Darmanitan and Musharna.

    Don't worry man, when you hit it... It's SO gratifying. Speaking of shiny Snivy's, I'm pretty sure I got the coolest shiny Snivy story ever. So I'm sitting in bed, down with potential tonsillitis, and I decide "Hey, Imma pop in the Cleveland Show, give that a watch, maybe Snivy will finally shine". I gave up counting after 1000 eggs, which was last weekend, Masuda method... So I'm just chilling, and this egg starts to hatch. I'm on about the 5th episode on disc (season boxset, yeah buddy) and the credits are about to roll in. This egg finally does the flash thing just as it wraps up hatching, and two things run through my mind. 1) It would be really awesome if this one finally shined, and 2) For those of you who have watched the Cleveland Show, you'll get what I mean when I say at the start of the credits, they kind of have that... Well, the best way to describe it is "BA DA BAH. BAH BAH." and it kicks into some sick jazz groove. Well, call my timing impeccable, but that egg flash finished just as the aforementioned sound did, and my Shiny Snivy busted out of his egg to some smooth jazz. Here's the pic;



    So no big deal, he came out perfect. Jolly nature (as intended), and a 31 defense IV (not intended, but perfect because it's my Japanese Ditto's only 31 stat). He's "above average" otherwise, which is alright. Also had Iron Tail as an egg move (again intended, was kind of thinking of running Coil, Iron Tail, Leaf Blade, and Aerial Ace). Sorry if that's long, but I am pumped. It's time I moved on to my Shiny Hydreigon hunt anyway. Thinking about nicknaming this BA Cleveland, what do you guys think?

    Congratz on hatching him. I intend try for one of those in the coming weeks since I got a snivy off GTS. In other news.

    I got him. I got that cheeky bastard. Cobalion. Finally, It's been a long time coming. Named him Cobaldbados,quiet natured. Will post the pics I took once I've got 'em uploaded.

    EDIT: Here he is.

    So Glad to finally have this hunt completed. But with his team still in the wind this is far from over.

    That Snivy story is awesome! Hopefully I can have a similar sort of thing happen for me, I stopped trying last night and finished on 680 eggs hatched and still no luck. I have never had a shiny on any of the games and the only thing keeping me going is other people's successes.

    Am I doing anything wrong? Got a Japanese Ditto with my Timid Serperior (which is holding an everstone). I figured I may as well try and get my wall set Serperior while I tried for the shiny. Really starting to loathe the green Snivy now! Hope it hatches soon, starting to lose patience.

    Just keep at it! It's easy to lose confidence your first time around. I almost quit several times when I was trying for shiny Roggenrola, which was the first time I ever seriously tried MM, and I was only a hundred or so eggs in. It got really discouraging seeing all those blue-and-yellow rocks staring at me, but when my Memoria shone forth with all her purple glory, it was totally worth the wait! You've got all the right ingredients, you just need to keep at it. You'll get there eventually, so cheers and best of luck!

    Congratulations on the Snivy and Cobalion and any other shinies that I might have missed!

    I've put my Volcarona hunt on hold because I remembered that I can MM Horsea with my Japanese Axew. So far, I think I'm at a little over 120 eggs.

    I'm going to continue my hunt for Shiny Snivy because I have a few other targets I want to get, but Snivy has to come first. I've already hatched 130 eggs before so I am going to collect 70 eggs and hatch those to make it a solid 200. Good luck to everyone! Especially Keruso who I hope gets his shiny Pidove soon!!

    My hunt sure was tough today. My game turned off while I was doing random encounters for Shiny Frillish, and I had to wait until my sister got home so that I could use her charger. I finally got the game back on, but I had to do about 60 more random encounters to catch up on my hunt. I also started hatching eggs for my Shiny Axew hunt, but nothing has hatched yet. I've done 30 eggs, which isn't much, but I remember seeing people hatch Shinies out of the first 20 eggs before, so I was getting my hopes up. Anyway, GLE.

    Will be interesting to see who gets their Snivy first! I have now hatched 800 eggs and can't wait for that moment when blue Snivy pops out to say hello. Sure is elusive! Well done to those who succeeded today and lets hope I can join you before the night is out!
