    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!

    Thank you for letting me know. Like I said I just don't have a working camera i could use.

    Not necessarily - some people like the surprise of not knowing what shiny they'll get, and others think it's easier to RE than breed. You can make REing go by really quickly if you put a Pokemon with Illuminate at the front of your party and ride the bike at the same time. Of course, if you do this, you have no control over what Pokemon or nature you will encounter like you would if you used Magnet Pull, Static, or Synchronize.

    Um... do other stuff while shiny hunting? I'm not sure, as I generally try to hunt two or three shinies at once.

    No problem! Still quite a cool pun, though.

    So I'm trying this hatching method for the first time; I've noticed that everyone seems to be collecting a gigantic number of eggs prior to hatching them. Wouldn't it be the same if I just collected a party of eggs, hatched them, then repeated, and just turned off the game whenever I had something else I needed to do?

    Why collect hundreds of eggs before hatching them, and what's wrong with resetting the game after a handful of eggs?

    It's just personal preference. I've dabbled in both ways, and I usually pick a hatching method based on the speed the eggs hatch and how quickly they get produced.

    I personally thought that it was faster to collect a batch and grab a new egg after one hatched, but just personal preference, I guess.

    The way you worded this is kind of vague, so you need to be careful how you do this. The shininess of a Pokemon is determined when you get the egg from the Day-Care Man. If you collected 5 eggs, hatched them, and then SR'd and collected 5 eggs again, that would work. However, you can't collect 5 eggs, save, and then hatch those same 5 eggs over and over. That won't work. You have to get the eggs fresh from the Day-Care Man each time.

    Good to know; here I was starting to think I was somehow "resetting my chances" once I turned off the DS.

    Thanks. I know that once the egg is produced, the pokemon inside is already determined. That would be awfully bad if I kept resetting with the same batch of eggs!

    One more thing, the shiny hatching method does work with a ditto as one of the pokemon, correct?

    Im taking a break from collecting cyndaquil eggs to RE a little bit. just to keep myself motivated. Ive already hatched 2250 eggs. But I have a feeling that in the next batch of eggs there is a brown one.

    Do you guys have a special feeling too just before you get a shiny?

    Never...that's something what I hate about myself. XD Nah just kidding. Anyways I had another 600 encounters today bringing my total up to 1903 RE's. I hope that it will shine between 2000 or 3000 (or even between 3000 or 4000 but not anywhere higher then that. XD).

    Here is one more for the Community Hunt. Shiny Joltik

    When I last checked in, I had finished my Pokedex and got the Shiny Charm. This is why you would want a living Pokedex by the way it makes it much easier to get the Shiny Charm (a ton of trading is required to do so unfortunately). Anyway I was quadruple hunting, and on the Shiny Charm game I came across a shiny Joltik. I figure it was about 3936 encounters across all four games.

    Since it is a japanese game I can't tell what the nature is, but it appears to be a neutral one. I can't tell what the characteristic is either. It is level 28 and has
    HP 74, ATK 33, DEF 37, SpATK 40, SpDEF41, and Speed 45 or approximately HP 30, ATK 7, DEF 16, SpATK 12, SpDEF 30, and Speed 14. Too bad the Attack stat is so poor. Still I am happy to get it. Good luck everyone.

    Anyone with tips? Im getting bored! but! Im sticking to it. Im making myself. Since I always think of things to do on games, but never actually do it. Or when I do, I always cut it short. I an an impatient person. Very badly. But Im not giving up this. I just need tips, cause today I could have easily passed the 1000 mark. But I don't know why I just never picked my ds up.but this helping me with patience. I guess im bored cause of the constant blue I guess.

    Any tips would help
