    Well I don't know how that stuff works, I was just given the DS with the Cyclo cartridge thing in it and Diamond was one of the games on it. I wouldn't know how (or want) to get Black 2 on there and hack the Shiny Charm or anything...Cheats aren't any fun =\ I played the game without the cheats, except on rare occasions just to switch it up, but I didn't save after using the cheats.

    Gasp. So did you just not care that it was shiny, or you just weren't paying attention and released it on accident because of the nature?

    meh, we'll see how the Mesprit and Charmander hunts go.
    Wow, you had the patience to catch every Pokémon =O kudos for you. I am struggling to catch only the Pokémon in the New Unova Dex. lol

    You wouldn't know how to hack, it is not worth. I had a hacked shiny Lilligant which was deleted after a time. Hacked Pokémon = boring.

    100% agree! I'm fine with the normal odds and have no plans on getting the charm.

    That quick shiny Golduck spoiled me lol I was in the mindset that I was gonna start getting some fairly quick shinies but nope.. my hunt in black 2 have went over the odds but I can't complain too much since I already got 3 shinies this month. Anyways, good luck everyone especially all the badge questers. :]

    Hatching some more Horsea eggs before I have to leave for work, still no shiny yet.

    I've heard of the shiny charm but what's the oval charm? If it makes MM a bit faster than I'll definitely want to get one of those!

    Nearly finished the Unova dex, guys! I'm hoping it won't take me too long to get the Shiny Charm. I get what you guys mean when you say it increases the odds too much, but at least they're giving you a decent reward for completing the dex now

    Ok, 570 eggs now for shroomish, it would be nice to get it now. And as you can see cha chi has updated my sig with my 'rare' finding in the nature preserve.
    And... Since everyone's doing it i'll give my thoughts on the charms.
    Oval charm - From what i've heard it doesn't do too much, but i haven't tried it myself, anything which helps mm is welcome with me. Completing the unova dex isn't hard for me, i have all the pokemon in it except meleotta (which i don't think is required) it just takes time. Yes i would use it.
    Shiny charm- Anyone who takes the time to catch every pokemon in the national dex deserves this, but yeah the odds are increased far too much. I know people could argue mm is increased more but its 6/8192. Can you do 6 res in the time taken to collect and hatch an egg? Yes you can. For mm i'm glad the odds aren't increased too much, because then you'll here people saying "Oh i got my shiny charm, i mmed a charmander! I collected a box and got two shinies!" The odds for re are kinda ridiculous, i think it was dan, who got a shiny with it and then got a shiny mienshao 39 encounters after. That would take twenty minutes. Thats not too valuable. I have access to about 640 national dex pokemon, but won't take the time to transfer them or get the others. IF i had the charm, i would use it for sring, because gen 5 sr takes like 10 seconds longer.
    These charms are great for these one time posters, who may never have seen one other wise. But for shiny hunters, it defeats the purpose. Another point, if gamefreak reduce the mm odds again in gen 6, i will be unhappy, but no doubt people will disagree. Gl to all, and sorry for the long post, i was on a thought train!
    Also, what are you guys thoughts on the free shinies, i appreciate gyrados had a story but the ones in BW2 are unnecessary, i love SupaRipJaw all the same though, I'm just sad everyone has one. I'm also working through white tree hollow to get dratini.

    I'm thinking, maybe I will get the Oval Charm, but give up on the Shiny Charm... I think my mind has been changed because of what people have said (especially you, Paddy).

    Okay! Then I will go and start hunting Heatran!

    AW YEAH!!! After 15,246 encounter I have finally found my 4th shiny for my badge quest- Sandile! While I'm a little disappointed that it wasn't a Yamask that shined instead, Sandile was definitely a close second! (just happy it wasn't a Sandscrew =P)

    Plus I was surprised to see that he had a Naughty nature and a 31 Attack IV. So now it's time to continue on in my badge quest at Chargestone Cave for a Tynamo. =)

    Congrats on that sandile! Glad your hunt has finally come to an end after so many encounters.

    Found a hole in my busy schedule to get quite a few SR's done. I'm now at 3,700. Will hopefully find more time some point this weekend to get some more done.

    That's clever. I think I'll do that when I decide to RE next in Chargestone Cave.

    First I need my other shinies to appear, and the shiny charm helps, but the change from 0.0122% to 0.0422% isn't going to get me a shiny so quickly every single time. It would be nice to get luck like Dan, but getting shinies so quickly like that isn't exactly probable at the rate I'm going. Possible, but in no way probable. Anyway good luck on those hunts, everyone, especially those long ones if there still is any. Too many people to keep track of.

    15,500 RE now! Still nothing! Seeing other peoples long hunts end got me hoping that I might be lucky and my hunt might end today. Who knows maybe it will but I am not holding my breath that it actually will. I really don't care what shines in Relic Castle which is where I am at now. I like the shiny forms of Yamask, Sandile and Sandshrew so I'm easy.

    Yeah that's true about completing the national dex, but it seems like to go from 1 in ~8k to around ~2k is a big jump. It's fine if people want to use it, it's just not my thing...

    As for the free ones in the new games...Eh...I mean it's neat because now everyone can get a free shiny (if they didn't get the Gyarados before), but it'd be nice if there were some sort of promo marking (there isn't, is there? Or can it not be traded?) to indicate that it was a freebie. That way no one could really be fooled by it but people could still have that alternate color...And hopefully reduce any begging for making shiny odds even more likely (Still pretty new to pokemon, not sure if I've ever seen anyone demand odds for shinies be reduced...)

    This particular one though, if mine is Haxorus (I have Black 2, can't remember which game gets which shiny), it's kind of disappointing. I think Shiny Haxorus looks cool, so I would have possibly hunted for him, but now that he's a freebie, it just seems like a wasted hunt...So that kinda sucks...

    Everyone gets shiny Haxorus in White 2 or Black 2 as long as they complete the unova dex. But also get Shiny Gible if you have Black 2 for free and Shiny Dratini if you have White 2 for free.

    Hey guys... Congrats on the Sandile and the Pupitar! Good luck, especially to Cocoa who is still stuck in Aspertia and to Shiny Lord who is at 15,500 encounters! Wow!

    As for me, I did 715 SRs yesterday for Kyogre, bringing my total up to 5,140 SRs. I am starting to get sick of seeing a blue fish/whale/whatever Kyogre is thing! Show me that purple soon!!!

    As for the debate for the shiny charm.... I am definitely getting it on my White 2 (just need Kyogre and Rayquaza now, which I am hunting or will be hunting) once I fill up my dex. I am debating on whether trading all my pokemon over to my Black 2 to get it on there as well or if I should just make my Black 2 my MM game.

    Well, I am doing some more SRs now. I am hoping for a shine this weekend! That random Rattata better not have messed up my luck for Kyogre! And I hope to not get up to over 10,000 like I did for Ho-oh!!! Anyways, happy hunting everyone and good luck!

    what i find funny is how many of us have a shining charm and it's not doing a whole lot. I have thousands of encounters since the charm, no RE shinies. Really wish the thing worked for me, because I'm trying to get every form in my pokedex in this game. (that's right, I need 7 shiny FEMALE eevees for this project T_T)
    Still working on Mesprit, then its on to MM female charmander

    edit - should probably mention my project requires I acquire the shinies myself, so no trading to fill up pages for me

    Good Luck with getting 7 female shiny Eevee's. I'm sure that will be extremely tough.
