    Ah i see thank you for telling me ^^

    After three days of lurking around in the Dreamyard in Black 2, i have all the natures possible on the synchronised Munna i caught though i'll be getting rid of the ones that have nuetral natures (thank you again for telling me Dewey911p :3), now i just have to decide which Pokemon to MM on Black 2 ^^''

    In other news on my Black 1 version; since i have a shiny Cyndaquil i MM'd the other week, i decided to get all three Johto starters shiny, continuing with Chikorita (already hatched 90 eggs since i started) and have already gone 361 eggs since my last shiny hatched (Cyndaquil). I collected 6 boxes of Chikorita today and will hatch them tomorrow and see if i get lucky (probably not though as i only just got Cyndaquil basically x3)

    Haven't worked on my LeafGreen shiny badge quest for Charmander the past couple days, but that's what i'll be working on tonight, got up to 100 soft resets the first night i started it and will hope to do at least 100 more tonight-i really would love a shiny Charizard :3
    I love fire and electric types, hence my username!

    Current soft reset targets: None

    Current chaining targets (Platinum): and

    Current random encounter targets (soulsilver badge quest-Route 32): over 300 encounters so far

    Current Masuda Method hunt/s: (150 eggs so far)

    Most recent shiny (White-MM): (16th April 2013) after 65 Venipede eggs and 185 eggs in total

    And many more, I mean COME ON America, we are slow and lazy, We won't get 90% of the events we haven't had yet, it really irritates me

    Also for shinies I haven't found any new ones since Registeel 2 weeks ago, I hope I can get another by tomorrow

    This is hilariously wrong. They won't lose any fans because they don't release something shiny.

    How's it "hilariously wrong" if I'm mainly talking about me leaving the forums and quitting Pokémon -_-

    I think they were referring to the "It's every players dream" part, rather than your personal decision.
    Some people don't care at all about shinies, and most of the ones who do won't quit the game because an event doesnt come shiny.

    Not cause of the shiny, because of all the crap Nintendo is doing now, for example skipping events and cheaping out on everything, also for games meant to go everywhere but are released in just one general area, anyway I'm not gonna argue with anyone anymore cause I don't want to be the start of anything, I hate when I'm the cause of stuff cause of a disagreement or anything

    Hey all,

    It's been ages since I posted in the shiny topic or even visited the forums. Not much to report I've hardly played much of anything with real life taking over. (I mean that in a good way).
    I do however have 2 shinies to report they are Donphan found in Mt. Silver July of 2012 and about 8 days later (Still in July) I found a Shiny Scyther while participating in the Natl. Park Bug Contest. They both are in my White 2 transferred over from my HeartGold, the original version they were caught in. The Scyther is now a Scizor. Well, that's all! Ciao!
    The awesome Dragonite has been claimed by me.

    I got the Shiny Charm with a play time of 69:03, with 958 encounters.
    Today, play time 94:10, 1290 encounters, I found my first shiny, Basculin.
    It took 332 Pokémon, most of which were Basculin (EV Training), and it doesn't even have Adaptability. Rock Head. Bashful. -cries-

    Wow, seeing everyone's effort put into MM hatching or soft resetting for hatching is insane. It reminds me of when I was hanging out with my 8 year old nephew playing pokemon, and within 5 minutes of starting the game up he randomly finds a shiny clefairy in a cave.
    I've been playing pokemon since I was his age! (I'm old now!) and I've never, ever, ever found a random shiny!

    A shiny is a shiny! ^-^

    That is almost exactly the same as what happened to me back when I was working on the PokéDex back in October about 2 weeks after B2W2 came out, in my White 2. I had found a Shiny Deerling!

    Congratulations on the Basculin! And yeah it's a pretty good nature for it, one of the best actually ^^

    Hatched the six boxes of Chikorita eggs i collected over the past few days and no shiny Chikorita, (bringing my total up to 390 Chikorita eggs hatched and 661 eggs hatched in total since my shiny Cyndaquil 2 weeks ago), although some hatchlings have good IV's; i went all out and collected ten more boxes of them yesterday, which i'm going to continue hatching today (only hatched like 1 and a half of them last night) and it's the weekend so who knows! xD

    I decided if none shine this time that i'd just collect five eggs and keep soft resetting until one of the five shine (unless they wind up being good IV'd) as releasing a lot of Chikorita is time consuming. Thank heavens for Pass Powers and Flame Body, seriously my Larvesta must have happiness of like 1000+++ by now the amount of time she spends in my team hatching x.x''

    Does anybody know if it'll be more efficient hatching that way (five and if not shiny-reset rather than like roughly 7-8 boxes at a time?)

    Haven't been soft resetting for Charmander on my LeafGreen badge quest-i DID get up to 200 soft resets the other night like i said though, it's just i want Chikorita more than Charmander right now hence i've been lazy on LeafGreen x'D

    Not sure still who to MM on Black 2 ^^''

    Your odds are the same either way as both methods will produce equally random results. However (and I'm sure everyone knows this, but I'll say it just to be sure) make sure you are not SRing after you have collected the eggs. Once the eggs are in your party, they are set in stone.

    I suppose SR would be faster as you wouldn't need to release a PC full of pokemon each time though.

    Yesterday I got a shiny Watchog with only 10 encounters. It's my new record for sure! And last month I got a shiny Mesprit (it took me around 10 hours) too.

    I hatched another 100 or so Shinx eggs this weekend for my Shiny Shinx Masuda Method hunt. I'm actually surprised that I was able to hatch that many given how busy I was with other things. I was able to hatch 30 more today; I would have hatched more, but I got bored of seeing Skyarrow Bridge so I went to do something else in the game. I probably won't hatch any eggs tomorrow , but I plan on continuing the hunt on Wednesday if I have time, or if not on the weekend instead. Good luck to everyone else on their hunts and such.

    Thanks! I'll try that then ^^

    Finished hatching all the Chikorita eggs today (i went over 10 boxes so i took 4 days x.x'') and still no golden Chikorita, bringing the total eggs hatched to 840 Chikorita eggs and 1,111 eggs in total since my last shiny. I only have 3 spare empty boxes now so i'll fill in those 3 with eggs today and hopefully one will shine though i doubt it, i don't mind longer hunts though as it makes me feel i earned it more haha, i just dread releasing all the Chikorita...

    Due to me only concentrating on Chikorita, i still haven't soft reset for Charmander on my LeafGreen Badge Quest (200 resets) for nearly a week and i hope to be able to work on him soon, maybe today after releasing all the Chikorita, haven't worked on Black 2 either as i still don't know who to Masuda Method for ^^''

    Congrats on the Snivy, Watchog, Bronzong and the two Bagons!

    Just got a shiny Oshawott. Finally! She's Naive and Somewhat of a clown, so her speed should be good. I'll be SR on SS to do a badge quest on there as well, but when I get too bored I'll come back to Black2 for my first badge quest. Congrats to everybody on their shinies, and good luck getting more!
