    My accidental SR Rayquaza shiny came to me in less than 100 SRs.


    It was also my first legit shiny, so I was relatively surprised when it came across my screen when I wasn't SRing for the shiny.


    In other news, 501 SRs for Squirtle, hopefully I'll get more in tomorrow.

    Don't forget Kitty's Snivy. Hm, only Grass types so far. I've decided myself to start early and SR for a shiny Johto starter, and I personally am hoping for Cyndaquil. I'm happy with any of the three, but since it seems we already have a Chikorita, I'd hope to get something different.

    Aww. I feel special when I get remembered. <3 I decided to work on my Sapphire Pokedex that will go towards the shiny charm for BW2. Only problem I can see so far is that I will be SRing for starters and Kyogre/Goudon/Rayquaza in HGSS so I won't have them in time for the shiny charm right away, but that is ok. I can go for them once I complete the games and then transfer them over. I have come to enjoy SRing actually. And Gustavo- I hope you are wrong about Rayquaza. Maybe if he sees that I have a shiny Kyogre and Groudon with me when I go for him, maybe he will decide to change color for me quickly. One can hope and dream.

    Sunday is only 2 days away!! Eeeep! I will be SRing for Oshawatt on W2 and Tepig on B2 (as will many others most likely).

    Happy hunting everyone and darn it Dangertrout! Smack your breeders and threaten to chop off their head if they don't produce a shiny female (Henry VIII reference). :P

    EDIT: Question for those who have played Japanses BW2: When is the shiny known when SRing for starters? In battle? Is there time to check your summary before battling your rival? If I remember correctly, HGSS were the only ones that displayed shininess in the pokeball (which was soooo nice). Thanks for the answers!

    Black and White 2 will come out on my birthday, and with Columbus day that's a whole day to SR for my shiny oshawott.

    Oh yeah, Columbus Day. I was so pleased to find out I have Monday off. And since Pokemon Black/White 2 is one of those games that releases on the actual release date, I'll be enjoying an extra long Pokemon holiday.

    I won't be doing any sidequests- too impatient. I may transfer some shiny pokemon over though, if I don't like the early-game selection.

    Hopefully I can get White 2 on release.
    I actually had a dream that I had White 2 and was playing it, was kind of weird.

    I remember there being a rumor when B2/W2 came out in Japanese, that your first wild Pokémon you found had a high chance of being shiny. Was that ever confirmed?

    So I was out in that area where Kyurem is, trying to evolve some pokemon to fill out my pokedex (to get the Master Ball you get from completing it) and I took along the last 2 Charmander eggs in a 3 box batch. The second-to-last one hatched shiny! HAHAHAHAHHA.

    But its nature is Careful, which suppresses Sp. Attack. !@$%#@! So this is my second starter with the exact opposite nature of what I wanted. Sigh. I think I now understand why Ash gets other people's abandoned pokemon. But at 370 eggs, I certainly can't complain.

    Here it is:

    The male Japanese parent came with the egg move Dragon Dance, which I didn't expect to use, but maybe I should look into a physical build.

    And here's the Squirtle I never got around to posting. The male Japanese parent had Mirror Coat, which was exactly what I was looking for. I'm still hoping that someday I will kill an electric or grass-move user with it and not die instead.

    I might be able to do one last push for a Bulbasaur before Sunday. Once I get White 2 in my hands, I will completely drop breeding, except to fill out the pokedex. Fortunately I have a Japanese Bulbasaur lined up, although it took several tries to get a decent one. I actually got a Bulbasaur with a weird skill set that I assumed was hacked, but when I checked around, it seems it hatched from a promotional egg. I decided to set it aside and not waste it.

    Perhaps I should be less fussy about natures, IVs, and egg moves...

    Yes, I believe something was said about a Patrat, being the first pokemon encountered, had a higher chance of being shiny. Don't know how high, but Serebii had it onsite.

    I can now SR again! *happy dance*

    79 SRs for the starters at the minute. Hoping for an early shine would be bad for me, but oh well. Still on 20 eggs for Snivy, but good luck everyone.

    Niles, what moveset did the promotional Bulbasaur have?

    Wow, John, congrats!

    That happened to my shiny Houndour - the egg hatched and reduced his Special Attack. Sucks, but I know the feel.

    Regardless, congrats on an awesome shiny!!! Black Charizard is definitely a target of mine soon!

    I feel your pain TheMaster. I am now hatching batch 4000-4500 eggs for my MM Staryu hunt! I see all the shinies on here and get quite sad.
    I have 15 boxes of eggs left to hatch so am hopeful. This will be my last batch of eggs until after I've completed White2. I haven't found a shiny for over 2 years. Over 300 hours of gameplay on black/white and no shinies! My luck must change soon!

    Yeah....no. The guy who did the review and found the patrat was just really lucky. It was more a rhetorical statement when he said "maybe the shiny rate increased?" Or something along those lines

    You know earlier when I said I'll be taking a short break? I lied. Lull the game into a false sense of security, and hopefully, get a shiny... Not a word of this must be said in more than font size 1.

    I have a shiny Ampharos currently residing on my Soul Silver team, pretty boss huh?

    I've encountered a few in total. A shiny Audino on my first play through of Black, I traded that thing not long after, always though it looked dumb.

    I'm sure that it's a strange coincidence that I don't see many accounts of short Rayquaza hunts. I'm glad it was the case that I didn't see any, because it sure helped motivate me. I really want to get Groudon shiny myself, but I'm in no hurry to get that. Right now, I'm focusing on a shiny Johto starter, which, obviously will get nowhere for awhile come Sunday.

    So I'm not doing anything on my game right now, just training to beat the Elite Four. Once I do so, I will begin hunting some. Although I'm pretty sure anyone would take a shiny at any point *shifty eyes*

    I'm still hatching all those bulbasaur eggs I collected. It's actually a little annoying, seeing as I hatched the shiny of the batch while I was collecting them. I'm pretty sure all these 330 eggs are non shiny >.<
    Still SRing Lugia too, but it's being uncooperative. I was really hoping my hunts would be done in time for BW2, but it's not looking like either of them will.
    Ah well, I guess I can move my Bulbasaur hunt to the new game after I get my shining charm

    This is totally what I will do, especially for MM-ing stuffs with long hatching steps like Chansey or Relicanth.

    It would really help if we can collect the eggs and get the shiny faster, as the long hatching steps is even more annoying than the RNG lol

    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
