I started hatching for a shiny Munna soon after I last posted. It barely took a few eggs before I started to get really, really irritated. My Musharna/Musharna pairing is producing eggs quicker than my Ditto/Rufflet one but it's still prone to long gaps between eggs. Coupled with Munna's low hatch rate, I usually only had between two and three eggs on the go at once and I kept fully running out of eggs, which bugs the crap out of me!
It took 140+ eggs before my brain started working. :P I dropped my Volcarona for my Rufflet and that sorted things out- 2,560 steps is still fairly quick but gives eggs time to generate. I still have occasional niggles (like getting no eggs before my first hatched) but it's a lot less frustrating and a lot rarer. Anyway, I'm currently at 540 eggs hatched (still unemployed, still have lots of free time). Might hatch some more in a bit as my housemate won't be home for ages.
Reading the 5th Gen. shiny thread, it seems like the next community hunt will be Dragonspiral Tower. I don't care for anything in it, but in the doubles grass outside 3/4 of the Pokémon are ones I wouldn't mind shiny. So I may have a go there. Could be fun; I've never deliberately RE'd a shiny before.
Congrats on new shinies!
Thanks for a great 15 years, Pokémon.
