    The last one I remember was the Victini event. Though I could be wrong.

    oh, forgot about that one. and it had a shiny lock on it, so you couldn't get that shiny either >.< well the 3rd gen events like Faraway Island Mew you could SR shiny. that's what I was thinking about in my last post

    edit - forgot to update with my Chargestone Cave hunt. At the end of the day, I'm at a total of 2754 encounters since I started the hunt.

    It depends on how you do it. There are different methods for getting shinies - REing (random encountering), SRing (soft resetting), and MMing (Masuda Method-ing) are the three most common ways. A shiny has a 1/8192 of appearing in the wild. However, in Generations IV and V, Masuda announced that he had introduced a method of breeding that increased the chances of finding a shiny to 1/1366. If you breed two Pokemon that originated in different language games together, the chances are increased. This is called the Masuda Method, and it is the reason that Japanese Dittos are so valuable.

    REing and SRing still have the 1/8192 chance of producing a shiny. Shiny hunting takes a LOT of time and patience. Even using the Masuda Method is very, very time consuming.

    No, you cannot get a shiny from an event delivery.

    This is true - any Wifi Gift or Pokemon received at a game store cannot be shiny, ever at all, unless it was a shiny event, like the dogs. The events activated by an item most of the time allow for a shiny to be SR'd for. This is true for the Mew in Emerald (which was supposed to have a shiny lock, but didn't, making this shiny very rare and valuable), the Eon Ticket Latios and Latias, and other item-activated events. It is assumed that the Azure Flute Arceus will be allowed to be shiny if it is ever released.

    The Victini event, however, had a shiny lock on it. There are NO shiny Victinis, so if someone tries to give you one, they hacked it.

    The count is... 400! Haha, decided to do 50 more before bed, which turned into 100, abs then into 150, i thunk I wont be to busy tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get at least past 800. It does get very boring but I'm recording a lot of comedies, so I should be okay and I have decided. I will be doing Badgequest for 1 Ruby, Ss, and white. After the community hunt. Well after I find a shiny. And then will be doing mm's, and re's on my main white. Still thinking about doing a Badgequest on platinum. Good luck everyone on the community hunt!

    What makes it fun is picking a route that has several or a pokemon that you really want as a shiny . On my white I'm RE in the double grass at dragonspiral tower (finally winter, thank goodness I could finally run up that slope) because I want a shiny meinshao, druddigon, and sawsbuck so its a nice bundle area for me to hunt in .

    Wow great for you that you finally got that Sneasel. And 2.222 is a funny/nice number to end with. I'm rooting for you that you might have a short Aipom hunt.

    Well, I'd definitely use a Pokemon with Magma Armour, and as such, when an egg hatches, get another out of the PC. I normally collect a batch of 30 before going to my hatching area. Good luck on your hunts, and, as ipodcheese got to make a reference...

    I made mine myself, too. I got the blank template from The Shiny Hunters' Forum, and I use Paint.NET to add in all of the sprites and colors. If you want step-by-step directions, VM or PM me. I can also email you the blank template if you want. If you ask really nicely I'll make you one out of the goodness of my heart

    Make sure that the Pokemon in your party has either Flame Body or Magma Armor as its ability, because that will halve your hatching time. Volcarona is the best option because it can learn Fly. I recommend watching movies while you do this to pass the time.

    No one needs you to post images, but seeing pictures of everyone's shinies always gives us motivation and hope!

    -----
    You guys, I think I'm going to start on a Spinda hunt. I encountered a shiny Spinda in Sapphire years ago and I accidentally killed it. I also need to reclaim Tentacool, as it was the first shiny I ever found - also in Sapphire - and because I was a kid I thought my game was messed up so I ran away from it. I'm still upset about both of these, so I will reclaim them!
