    Hi everyone, I'm Kate and I just recently started shiny hunting after I saw a few videos about shinies on Youtube, which really inspired me.

    Just last night, I finished my first shiny hunt by hatching a Hasty Eevee on egg number 655.

    [bad quality because I had to use my laptop's webcam, which is about as good as a potato]

    I loved the feeling of excitement just seeing the shiny appear, so I decided to go for something else. I really wanted to hunt for a shiny Terrakion (such a beautiful shiny), but I hadn't done anything with Cobalion and turns out you need to capture or defeat him before you can even access the other two. Hope he doesn't take too long to appear.

    Anyway, good luck with all your hunts!

    Congrats on getting your first shiny, KatePKE, and good luck with shiny Cobalion.

    I'm still hunting for my own shiny Cobalion - I'm currently at 4800 SR. I'm also at 11,000 encounters in my HG badge quest, and 1300 for shiny Groudon in SS. I've also just past 1000 SR for my shiny Chikorita in Crystal.

    Good luck everyone. Happy hunting.

    Still working on random encounters, slowed down on MMing. Might start up after BW2.

    I had a dream that I ran into a shiny Cranidos - except it was gold. I OHKO it. :|
    Even in my dreams, I cannot catch a shiny!

    Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he felt like it.

And I can't get BW2 Until my parents have some monies Dx but I can wait... *sitting in corner biting on fingernails and rocking back and forth muttering* O-O

    *looks at 50$ gamestop gift card. * Um...
    Anyways Is it worth it to go through the pain of catching a feebas until I get a shiny one and then evolve it ( with the right nature ) or no?

    Feebas isn't actually as hard to catch as it was in Sapphire and Emerald. I actually caught two in the same day,but I just might've been lucky. Anyways catch a feebas and MM for a shiny one.

    MM: Masuda Method. It's when a pokemon of your laguage and a foregin language are bred together. In this case, Japanese and American are common with MMing. It cuts the rate of hatching a shiny.

    RE: Random Encounter. When you encounter the same Pokemon over and over until you get a shiny.

    While I EV train my Shiny Zangoose (When I get one x:x) I will also RE for Pokemon.

    Don't forget about Emerald's broken RNG when you are soft resetting for your Mudkip.

    The RNG (Random Number Generator) is something that determines everything about Pokemon, like nature, IVs, Gender, and Shininess. It's a string of numbers that changes depending on what time you start up the game, and if you're looking for a shiny, you need to hit a certain string of numbers. However, in Emerald, the RNG is broken; the string of numbers always starts at the same place, so unless you have a really early shiny frame, SRing is not the most efficient way of getting shinies.

    Anyway, 824 SRs on LeafGreen for the Squirtle, hopefully it shows up soon.

    The way Emerald's RNG works, like Skippio said, is that every time you restart Emerald its RNG is set to zero. So unless your current file has has a early shiny frame you will never be able to get a shiny because it could be a whole day until your shiny frame pops up.
