    Yeah i definitely get your point and i partly agree with it, i just dont think you will get somebody into RNGing by calling them people without a life or say what they should do. Btw your wordpress guide is really good, better than most of the other guides that are making stuff seem harder than it is.

    Anyway I found sr for nature frustrating enough, let alone shinyness. But really when it comes down to it, it's the IVs that really matter. Shiny pokemon aren't any stronger than regular colored pokemon.

    Why does pretty much every discussion concerning shinies turn into Hunting v RNGing? Honestly, there was a thread in GPD where loads of RNGers were just being condescending and pushing RNGing onto others, but you haven't at least. And how the hell does SRing mean you don't have a life? That is a harsh thing to say, they might only do like 200 SRs a day and spend the rest of the day going out with friends. In the end, just let them choose, it leads to a lot less of RNG V Hunting "wars". I remember trying hard to learn RNGing, but then I just thought that getting shinies via hunting was something that I would find easier. By heck it is, and it's really good for building your patience up. The feeling of getting one is great, especially after 15k SRs, but the same goes for an RNG that takes up a lot of your time to get. In the end, don't try to get people to do what you do, just give them a choice and leave it to them.

    (Sorry if I came across as really rude, I have somewhat strong feelings when people say you have no life when shiny hunting.)

    I just attempted Soft Resetting for the first time in Soul Silver. I was going for either a Chikorita or Totodile since I already have a shiny Cyndaquil on my Black 2. After only about an hour and a half spread over 2 days, I got a shiny Modest Female Chikorita! That's pretty much the rarest of the rare since it's a female. Im super excited.

    I was super lucky today: I was suppose to meet with my local pokemon fanclub group in the city so I felt motivated to soft reset for rayquaza in my soul silver game. Believe it or not it took me 50 soft resets to get a shiny and even luckier its Adamant nature!

    Currently, I've only done two SR hunts, both of which are still in progress. Aipom is currently at 1401 SRs and Dialga at 1245. Which one'll shine first is anyone's guess, however I have to wait another 6 hours tomorrow morning to start the honey trees up again.

    I don't know the exact number (this is tedious enough for me without *counting* them), but I've got the Shiny Charm and have been going for the better part of 3 days now on Regice with no success. =/

    My shortest soft reset hunt was Kyogre, with only 2 soft resets to get it.
    My longest, however, is still going on. For Latias, I might be around 500 to 600 soft resets right now.
    But these are my only hunts with soft resets.

    Shortest: Cyndaquill on HG in less than 100 SR's. Longest: My longest completed SR hunt is my Virizion, the only one with the charm at 1065 SR's. My longest unfinished SR hunt was the 5,307 SR's I did for Squirtle, followed by the 4,374 SR's I currently have for Charmander.

    I don't really count, but I started my first attempt at getting a shiny Totodile on SS yesterday. This has been going on for a day.

    It depends on which pokemon i would have the patience for. Ho-oh would be interesting to have as shiny however its like for Heatran then I could get away with just good stats so it tends to be short
