    Also, I imagine there will be a BW2 Shiny thread when the BW2 forum becomes more....used? So maybe when it's released outside of Japan?
    I always keep track of the eggs hatched for any pokemon I decide to mm. I usually tend to switch targets a lot because I get bored of seeing the same pokemon over and over again. I go through a ton of eggs usually before I get a shiny but it is still a lot of work. For my shiny snivy hunt I have picked it up and put it on hold many times and even though I have done this I still keep track because I still put in all the effort to hatch the eggs so I feel like they should count to the overall total of that hunt. I've had 14 successful shinies hatch from doing it this way. I tend to get lucky and get early shinies by switching after so many eggs. My longest successful mm target was Poliwag which hatched on egg 999. My longest hunt I've ever done is Snivy-3000 then Sandile-2200(I think because I lost the paper with it on) and Tauros 1830. I also had a long Frillish hunt but again I lost the paper that I had that one recorded on though I know it was more than 1000 eggs hatched for one.

    After a lengthy shiny drought, this shiny Magby appeared in my Black 2 . I was busy watching an LP on youtube when I saw the orange bodied Magby, followed by sparkles. He has a Gentle nature, which doesn't bother me in the slightest .

    Gentle nature

    Next hunt is in Sangi Ranch, where I'm hoping for a Mareep(seeing as I am using a Static Emolga). I wouldn't mind a Patrat or a Pidove, as long as it isn't another shiny Lillipup.

    So my Shiny Electrike Hunt is now up to 1,330 Eggs as you can see in my sig... I hope it shines before 2k Eggs, and I hope it is Male. I don't think I mentioned before but I have an Everstone on my Modest Electrike I'm using to breed to try passing Modest down to the Shiny. If anyone wants to predict Nature/When it will hatch/etc. feel free to do so on my profile on here!

    Ending my egg hatching tonight with a grand total of...

    [SPOILER]25 eggs hatched.[/SPOILER]

    Yeah... I didn't hatch that many today. Life got in the way. This brings my total eggs hatched up to 124 eggs. I'll hatch more tomorrow. Maybe. Night everyone.

    I'm thinking I need a break from MMing, might try REing something. I guess running away from battles and having an Illuminate pokemon in the lead would help speed things up... any other tricks?

    Decided to pick up my MM hunt again after a 3 month break and I was watching TV when the egg hatched. At first my brain was like "no way!" but my shiny target hatched!! This was my first MM hunt and it was short to boot. It hatched around the 210ish egg, and I say "ish" because a couple of eggs hatched while I was waiting to get an egg from the daycare man. Timid syncer worked and its characteristic is likes to run. Checked its IVs and it has 30 Speed . It also has 21 Attack and 18 HP/SpDef, not sure what I'll EV train it in besides speed. Still have another box and a half of zorua eggs to go, so I'll hatch those and start my next MM target .

    Sorry for the crappy quality, my camera never has liked the pokemon info page >_<...that and its late and I don't feel like re-taking the picture XD



    Edit: Tomorrow I'll replace the picture with a more clear one.

    That's a beautiful Zorua! I think I'll hunt for it when I'm done with my current targets.

    Anyway, more than 800 Ponyta eggs hatched now. Still waiting for the blue flames.

    I agree, I think I am subbed...I'll sub now if i'm not.

    Regardless, I have just hit 12075 Starters Seen. It does not want to shine really.

    Yay a new relaxed thread!

    Congrats on the new shinies peeps. Magby and Zorua are both awesome!
    Special Congrats to CharizardMaster, Magnemite is sweet! Glad your hunt has finally finished!

    Keep going Aqua, your hard work will definately be rewarded so keep it up.

    Just boxing up some more eggs. Lets hope it's in this batch!

    Rather than writing it on paper, you can try nicknaming the hatched Pokemon with the egg number.

    For example, the first Pokemon that hatched is nicknamed 001, the second is 002, and so on.

    That's what I do to keep track on how many eggs I've hatched.

    Up to 9760 encounters in the Giant Chasm. Still no shiny. I think after I get this shiny, I will just stick to MMing. I am going nuts wondering when and what I will get. At least with MMing, you know what you're gonna get, you just don't know when. Whenever I get this shiny, it will be my first shiny since last summer. I don't really hunt much when I am in college.

    Thanks for the congrats guys, I'm really psyched about this shiny. Especially because of this:

    Magnemite - #081 (Modest)

    HP: 31
    Att: 31
    Def: 29
    SpA: 18-19
    SpD: 6 - 13
    Speed: 10 - 17

    Modest nature, pretty awesome IVs. This only happens on my long hunts... Shiny treecko, 13K, lonely with near flawless attack and speed. Shiny Pidgey with adamant nature after 19K. I just tend to be more luck with longer hunts.

    Anyway I am getting ready to continue my BQ, not sure if I'll go for shiny in Virbank again, or repel trick eevee. What do you guys think? I've also got mudkip, charmander, and ho-oh hunts to finish. Not sure which I'll finish first though.

    Good luck to everyone on your hunts, if you have a long one it's much more satisfying when you finally get it!

    Look at this thing here

        Spoiler:- Big picture ;):


    I got it with the Masuda Method, and got it after only 324 hatched eggs. It has a Relaxed nature, which isn't that bad, I guess. It has Shell Armor ability, which I didn't hope for. Still one of the coolest shinies, though
    I just love Shellder and Cloyster, and the shiny formes are just awesome

    I still got three boxes with eggs to hatch, so maybe I get some more?

    Anybody who want to suggest a new hunt? I'm thinking of Squirtle, but I'm not sure...

    Keep going Master/Kitty/everyone else

    Congratulations on that magnemite Charizard! Fantastic find

    Congrats to you, too, Andyhaj! You asked for some suggestions; well personally, I like to hunt shinies that aren't extraordinarily common (doesn't apply to my current zubat hunt).

    Maybe chatot? I am personally going to MM for Emolga & Castform (rotating every 200 eggs) after I finish up my Zubat hunt. Which is at 219 eggs or so at the moment. I am really determined for this one because I am planning on adding shiny Crobat to my permanent post-game team for White 2 and beyond.

    Anyway I haven't done any MM'ing today due to life :L But I have the rest of the day and tonight to hatch. Hopefully it shines in one of the 7 boxes of eggs I have boxed up, because I am really eager to get a shiny emolga or castform.

    Ohh, joy! I've hatched another shiny Shellder! Egg number 348 also contained a shiny
    This time, I got a Shellder with Naughty nature and Skill Link ability!

    Still got two and a half box left too

    Btw, I decided that I'll MM a shiny Carvanha after hatching all the other eggs.
    I will upload pictures of both Shellders later, so then you'll see that I'm not kidding!

    Yup throw some luck to me too! I've got a nasty hunt going on.

    I've done ~220 SRs for today, amounting to 12,651 Starters Seen now.

    Tempted to SR for Azelf in Platinum now...

    Also, hit 1,450 REs in Pinwheel Forest and Route 222 hunt (well, I started randomly REing in Route 222 to dual hunt something).

    Congrats on the Shellder Duo as well!
