    Hm, maybe I should give up on SRing for Ho-oh in my HG and continue with my all-shiny team playthrough. I mean, only a week left before B/W 2, might as well accomplish something in the meantime...
    Oh man there's NEVER enough time for all the games I want to play T__T

    Well... got my main shinies EV trained now. Riolu is now a Lucario (I do want a shiny Riolu to keep as a Riolu though) and Snivy is now a Serpierior. Also, the Cherubi I EV trained is now a Cherrim. The other one I haven't touched. So for now, I am just hunting on Route 5. Sunday is sooo close yet sooo far away!!!

    EDIT: Actually, I think I am going to take a break from hunting until Sunday... My wrist and hand are killing me (most likely carpal tunnel). So no more playing for me (unless it is just training or something). Its sad but my hand needs to rest for Sunday.

    Happy hunting everyone!

    i used to have burning wrists all the time (combo of too much work, pokemon and WoW)
    if you haven't already, throw an ice pack on your write for 10-15 mins. should help a bit.
    I'm still collecting eggs in black and I'm going to put an hour into my Lugia hunt later. hopefully I get one of them before I buy BW2

    When I stupidly overtaxed my wrists chaining last year, I would soak them in a tub of warm water and epsom salts. Helped a bit, but not as much as just letting them rest.

    My last batch? Oh, I hatched all those yesterday. 11 boxes if I remember... These were just 2 boxes I gathered and hatched tonight (all I can do, due to work...)

    You think I hadn't changed my goal already?! I changed my goal to beating Dan's 8,443 egg record since around 4,200 eggs! But this hunt is likely to be postponed until after my Black 2 Badge Quest, starting on October 12th...

    well I assumed you hadn't because you seemed disappointed in the lack of shiny Tauros, rather than happy your goal hasn't been ruined
    almost 200 eggs collected for me, just another hundred or so to go and I can start hatching

    Gosh, thats a long MM. We are all rooting for you, don't forget

    I am officially ready for B/W2. I EV trained my newly evolved shiny Crobat (Jellybean), my shiny Castform (Plum), and my shiny Typhlosion (Pumpkin)! Notice there is a theme I kind of botched their EV's a little bit at the end, I think I got 255/251 EV's on each one, which takes away some stats -_- I didn't intend it that way, I just kept forgetting whether or not I put a pokemon I KO'd in the calculator Oh well, its fine as long as they got the bulk of the correct EV's, right? (Way too lazy to go hunt down EV reducing berries).

    @Kitty - You said that you EV trained 5 shinies in one day!? It took me like 4 weeks to EV train all three of mine *___* You must be so efficient!

    I have *really* been wanting a shiny Gothitelle, but the problem is I am obsessed with my pokemon having the correct nature & ability, and we haven't gotten a female DW gothitelle or its pre-evolutions yet. So I am hesitant to start MM'ing for a Gothita, because I want a shiny DW Gothitelle, not just any old Gothitelle.

    I am excited for B/W2 a lot. Black 2 BQ shall begin on the 18th (or if it comes in the mail sooner). I am starting my White playthrough on Sunday, and will begin MM'ing for several targets as soon as possible. (One being a DW Cinccino which I also really want, which is luckily already available ) I also want to MM Vullaby, Glameow, and Alomoloma. I will probably make it one huge multihunts with like 10 targets.

    Good luck everyone

    655 eggs in this dual MM hunt. What would be a better everstone for drapion and a phsyical lucario, jolly or adamant?

    EV training goes faster when you use vitamins/pkrs/power items. I can usually get something trained in about 30 minutes if I have everything on hand. I've been waiting to train all my shinies. I'll be EV training all of them in B2 or W2 (whichever becomes my breeding/training cart)
    I really should take a look at my collection and see how many pokemon I have to train. I haven't really been keeping track of my shinies and they're all over the place >.<

    Well... I had PKRS on each of them (thanks to my Victini getting infected on my playthrough on Victory Rd and I was using vitamins and had a macho brace on them. 10 vitamins per stat = 100 EVs per stat, reducing the 2 stats to just 152 EVs left need. Then PKRS double amount of EVs and then Macho Brace doubles that amount. So, for Sp. Atk EVs, for example, Litwick gives 1 Sp. Atk EV. With PKRS= 2 and then with Macho Brace = 4. For Speed EVs, for example, Basuclin give 2 Speed EV points. With PKRS = 4 and with Macho Brace = 8 per Baculin. So it isn't that tough for me to EV train, mainly since I got super lucky to be infected with PKRS.

    My shiny Totodile, Lugia, and Ho-oh were terrible to train. No vitamins, no Macho Brace, no PKRS. PKRS will definitely be transferred to my BW2 (already got it on my Keldeo.)

    If only cute charm could be implemented into MM, that would make your mission alot easier!

    You have no idea how much I wish that could work right now. I must be the only person in this thread who is upset at their shiny. wait. i take that back. I remember a quest for a shiny female combee not too long ago
    I'm going to finish collecting / hatching this batch of bulbasaurs and then I think I'll start rotating hunts again.

    Congrats to any recent shinies everyone!

    So I didn't start my Granite Cave hunt for my Sapphire but I've decided to hunt Charmander first instead and I'm up to 605 SRs on that and hopefully more will be completed by Sunday when I get White 2.

    Well, that person(why can't I remember the name?) at least got a bunch of other shinies. You're only getting Bulbasaur, so I think you might have the right to be more upset.

    I feel sorry for you, i don't always have as much patience as others. Heck I bet if I had as many eggs hatched as you without a shiny I would throw my DS at the wall.

    7500 SR for my Rayquaza so far. Considering I've been doing 1300+ SR everyday for about a week, i'm so glad I've done intense gaming for years or my hands would be killing me by this point. Hopefully I can get it to shine before Sunday....

    Good luck to everyone on their hunts, and congrats to recent shinies.

    1300+ SR's a day? Wow, you must get lots of free time during the week to get that many SR's. I sure hope you don't have to wait for nearly 26000 SR like I did, though. It starts feels bad when too many people have bad luck with shinies, too, so good luck!

    haha, yeah I have had a lot of time this week. My job gave me virtually no hours this week, and school is slowed down for fall break next week...so I thought why not work on my hunt. I think this Rayquaza is being defiant since I got Groudon relatively fast... so I'm just keeping at it.

    I get this vague feeling that Rayquaza is a stubborn shiny in general. I've rarely heard of Rayquaza hunts that don't go well over the odds, unlike other legendaries. Of course, that's a very generalized assumption I'm making.
