    @Trickster Zorua: If you don't have access to the Dream World, you can use a Pokemon with Fire Body, store a batch of eggs and then switch them when one hatches.

    Also, I'll probably join the community hunt on Black. What are we searching for?
    Hunting in Chargestone Cave. Anything in there counts. Not much progress on my CH (Community Hunt). This day wasn't a productive one. :S

    I have the worst luck ever, so I probably won't be seeing it till 200. But I'm not giving up that easily, even with the game probably enjoying my misery and lack of shinies 8D I really want that shiny Axew, so it'll be worth it when I finally get it. ^^ (Haxorus looks really cool as a shiny...I want a shiny Haxorus.

    Man, I feel like I've been at this forever, and yet I'm only at 1300 REs. I don't know if I'm going to have the patience to finish this hunt >.<
    Somehow, MMing feels more productive to me

    edit - battery died, so my community hunt is paused at 1389 encounters total. I think I'm actually hoping for Drilbur from the dust clouds. then I could give it to my friend for his birthday, and not have to breed them anymore!
    While I wait for this DS to charge, I think I'll put try to get some real progress into my Drilbur hunt tonight.

    Reading your posts about getting shinies with MM has make want to try it again.
    I just got one shiny with this method, a shiny Chinchou with just about 60 eggs but since then I gave up when i arrived to 400 eggs or so. Now I know that I just have to be patient and choose don't give up. Yes, I will do it, I will hatch that silver Slugma!
    Good luck on your hunts, I'm going to start storing eggs.

    Finishing today with the hunt currently on 6,680 encounters. Looks like I'll be going over the odds... again.

    Good luck guys, let's hope we hit our targets before the week is out!

    Well, we must both be pretty unlucky then. You’re over 1000 eggs (if I’m right) and I’ve just hit the 2100 mark. But we mustn’t let that discourage us! >:0

    May the Shine god bless all of your h—wait, screw the Shine god. I’m going with Chuck Norris. >:I

    Asheina: ALL TOGETHER i'm like .... 1300 or something. but just for this month's eevee hunt i'm at 300. Well really 500, I've just been to busy to hatch the rest. it should only take an hour or two anyways. REing is fun. just got to 1120. I can't stay on track tho..maybe I need to mm to mix it up a little? or RE and MM on different Ds's.

    hmmm, only got a couple boxes of Drilbur eggs stocked before that DS died >.< I should charge these more often. Luckily, my other DS is done charging. Back to REs in Chargestone Cave for me

    That's a pretty good answer. I would like to try to catch one, I just haven't set aside time to do it yet. Other than resetting your DS thousands of times, is there any particular way to get a shiny legendary? If not, I'll just use the Masuda method.

    Oh, and how mant eggs does it take you guys to get a shiny Pokemon, usually?

    Sorry, nothing else for legendaries.
    as for mming, it can take anything really. the usual though is about 1000-2000, some unlucky people have gone to 4000 up though

    Hello everyone. I have recently been chaining again on 4th gen games. Got so fed up of Mming on 5th gen games with no shiny since March so went back to my favourite method of shiny gathering. Anyway i have managed to obtain my first shiny in the chain in an early shiny patch. The pokemon is Tyrogue and i have added a 4th to my overall number, i accidentally broke my previous chain after only getting 3 which was annoying as it meant if i evolved all three i would not have all 4 of the evolution family in shiny form. Now i have a 4th i could evolve three and have the whole family in shiny form. I am so pleased with this. I think my next target after this chain ends will have to be ralts. I only have one after yet another annoying slip up breaking the chain and i need at least another three for the whole family.

    Congratulations on all other recently obtained shinies.
    Shinies are good.

    You can increase your encounter rate by having a Pokemon with the ability Illuminate at the front of your party; this will increase the number of random encounters you have. However, if you do this, you can't have a Syncher at the front of your party to influence what nature your shiny will have. So it's up to you what you want to do.

    Riding a bicycle also increases the encounter rate, doesn't it?
    I'm at 1905 encounters total for my hunt. I have the day off tomorrow, so I should get some decent progress in my hunts ^_^ So nice to not have to do anything for a bit, my summer has been waaaay to busy.

    You're right, and so does running! So put a Pokemon with Illuminate at the front of the party while riding the bike, and you should have a small encounter/walk time ratio.

    Wow, thanks ... I thought I might have gotten a little carried away, but, and I'm not trying to be rude here, I find that question can be really annoying. I know it's probably posted to cause trouble, but honestly ... I don't think it's that hard to work out. Even if someone else thinks Shiny Pokemon are crappy or dumb or a waste of time, you should probably be able to understand why someone else might think differently without having to make a post about it.

    ...

    Since im not that lucky with shinies... Which means the only one i ever caught was the Red Gyarados. Yeah im that bad...
    Man, I feel like a ****** right now, but sorry! I guess I was looking to see who posted it and saw someone with a quote about what you said and must have just stupidly thought, "Oh, it was Claus!" or something ... Forgive me, please?

    And it's not you who are bad, it's your games ... but they will eventually spit something out, I'm sure. Good luck!
