    I've played Black for 400 hours now, and I still haven't even seen a shiny! I have such bad luck with shinies. To be honest there isn't really an 'easy' way to get a shiny RE in Black though.
    I have OFFICIALLY Claimed Pokemon Sapphire, Mudkip and Steven Stone!

    Ran into my 1st shiny in my White 2. A shiny female Golbat . Caught me off guard, since I wasn't shiny hunting. It's lv. 66 and it has a hasty nature. Would post a pic of it, but I don't have a camera right now . Might post a pic when I can though.
    Looking forward to the release of Pokémon X and Y.

    I found a handful of shinies in Soul Silver, but since starting White I haven't seen a one. ...and I really don't have the patience to breed hundreds of eggs for the slight chance of getting one.

    Well i have a couple more shinies to report...though still haven't hatched a shiny Chikorita ^^''

    In Platinum after just ONE soft reset (15th February 2013)!!



    will transfer to Black 2 in the end

    and:

    Black after 775 Litwick encounters and 1851 in total (21st February 2013):




    I started this hunt only on Tuesday night (19th February 2013)-i decided to go to Celestial Tower and EV train and was hoping to try and bump into a shiny Litwick on the second floor (as Litwick is 100% there); and sure enough today (21st February 2013) at 7:24am this shiny Litwick graced my screen after only 775 Litwick encounters and 1851 in total since starting my game ^^

    My Musharna's Synchronise worked too so she's a Modest nature, haven't worked out her IV's yet, and this is my first shiny that i've worked on finding (all others in the wild are random and i wasn't expecting them too) ^^

    I didn't expect one to come so fast and sorry about the rubbish camera quality-but i'd only just basically got up and was excited ^^

    As for my badge quest for Charmander (LeafGreen) and hatching for a shiny Chikorita-i haven't managed to get anywhere with those yet; but i think i'll put LeafGreen on hold for now and i collected another 10 boxes full of Chikorita eggs over the past 2 days; though i accidently pressed my Black cart out of my Ds Lite today and lost a box of collected eggs and i really hope it didn't contain my shiny Chikorita-but two shinies in 6 days....i'm not complaining : P I'll hatch the 10 boxes of eggs in my own time when i need a break from EV training.

    Now i've collected 10 boxes of Chikorita eggs; i'm going back to Celestial Tower to EV train more Pokemon and...just maybe might bump into another shiny (lol probably not xD). I'm also now going to work at random encountering more too now i know what it intails (Serebii.net has taught me a lot ^^).

    As for Black 2...i'm beginning to think it's an unlucky file as i haven't managed to find anything since my shiny Cottonee i found a while back...my Black 1 version has all the luck it seems xDDD

    Congratulations on all recent shinies

    I've never posted in this thread before, but some of you may recognise me from the General Shiny Thread? Anyways, I'm Lunafloon, and I have 10 shinies! None are 5th Gen Pokémon yet, but 3 have been hatched or caught in White 2! Yay!

    I'm currently SRing Snivy in Black 2, at 1316 SR's so far, it's taking a while but I'm getting there, and 2241 RE at Virbank Complex for a race with my boyfriend. I'm hoping for Growlithe! This is all in my signature but I thought I'd just fill you in since it's my first post... I also have one non-Gen-5 hunt which wouldn't fit here, though I haven't started it quite yet anyways...

    Anyways! My reason for coming here today is just out of curiosity! I love hearing success stories of shinies I'm hunting for, so I'm wandering who here in this thread has SR'd a shiny started in Black/White/Black 2/White 2? If so, I'd love to hear about it, whether it be how long or how many SR's it took or nicknames! Or if you're still hunting, how far are you into the hunt so far? Thank you in advance if anyone shares their expiriences with me!

    Also, good luck on your hunts! :D

    After 5,130 encounters....






    Not the shiny I wanted from this area but predicted it'd be what I got. Not complaining though, a shiny is a shiny lol.

    EDIT

    I'm on a roll, be jelly.





    289 encounters, 5th floor of the Celestial Tower!

    EDIT 2

    WTF is this luck?





    It's Brave nature and it appeared after 182 encounters in the Desert Resort.

    ^ Dat shiny charm. Lol but gratz though.

    I've been SR'ing for Cresselia for almost 2 weeks (12 days to be exact) and I'm really hoping it shines soon. I'm also RE'ing for Wynaut via swarm which I'm at about 4-5k-ish encounters on so far. Hopefully one of these targets shine soon!

    Lol even with the shiny charm, 3 shinies in a day seems a bit lucky, and the Grumpig wasn't exactly quick. Gl with the Cresselia though I'm hunting again in the Abundant Shrine, hoping for a Cottonee, Vulpix or Bronzong.

    I want to shiny-reset every W2 legend. I am done with latias, Virizion, Terrakium and Cobalion. None of them took longer than 3 days with shiny charm.
    My current targets are the fairies. Azelf, to be precise. But no luck after one week. It want to test my willpower huh? XD Well okay, it's too early to give up. I won't lose my patience.

    Finally got my Cresselia after 2 weeks of SRing!



    Sync worked for me so its bold natured which was surprisingly nice since my sync failed on Mespirt and Heatran and I was starting to think it would never work lol. This is also my longest completed SR hunt since all my other SR targets shone in 7 days or less so good luck to Pokemonspecialgerman, your Azelf will eventually shine! So that makes 3 lengendary's down on my hit list and 4 more to go. Good luck everyone.

    I am considering giving up on my current hunt... I've hatched a TOTAL of 3,048 eggs... Which is outrageous considering I'm Hunting Via Masuda Method and using the Shiny Charm... I originally did 1,638 on my Black then post-poned it until B2W2. Continued my hunt after I got my Shiny Latias and hatched 1,410 Eggs on White 2. Don't get me wrong, I am NOT a noob to Shiny Pokémon. I know that even if I am using the Shiny Charm and doing the Masuda Method it is not a 100% guarantee. I'm just getting sick and tired of going back and forth hatching non-shiny Electrike after non-shiny Electrike, 3,000+ Eggs is just not worth it in my opinion... To make matters even worse for me, I want a Male Shiny Electrike since my first one that was stolen was a Male. I don't want to waste a lot of my time hatching eggs just to end up with a Female.... I don't know... it's just extremely discouraging.........
