    Finally got the 3 B2/W2 fairies<3 But now starts the real deal. A shiny heatran.
    I think this is most difficult legendary shiny hunt in b2/w2 for me. First of all I have problems to weaken this guy with false swipe (almost no damage) + my scizor dies with 2 of heatrans fire attacks. So I decided to use a false swipe Garchomp with sword dance. (I don't have a Endeavor Pokemon and I want to sync. it anyway).
    Another problem is to paralyze it. I will just use a Togekiss with thunder wave, but the tricky part is Heatrans Fire Spin that makes me unable to switsch to Garchomp.
    But I decided to use a Shed Shell on my Togekiss to avoid that. I'd never though this Item could ever save my ***.. but it will.

    Soo.. first Abra -> switch to togekiss -> paralyze heatran -> switch to Garchomp -> boost 2-3 times with sword dance -> weaken heatran with false swipe -> throw balls. I think this is my personal most complicated shiny catch strategie so far. I hope it will work. Shiny heatran still has not shown up yet. And no, I still have 2 Masterballs but I don't want to use them.

    Someone else here with shiny heatran experiences?^^

    No, the Shiny Charm and the Masuda Method stack so instead of the normal Masuda Method odds(1 in 1,365.3) it makes it 1 in 1024.

    After years of playing (since the release of the original red and blue versions) I finally got a shiny besides the ones supplied in the game, like the shiny gyarados and haxorus. I hatched a shiny cyndaquil after only 37 attempts. I'm so happy it didn't take a long time. I'm going to transfer it over to my white version and play through the story with it.

    I actually wanted Skorupi, but Skarmory was my second favourite (plus it's rarer!) I am going to continue my hunt here until I get another shine!

    *shares some luck*

    To be honest it's more about dedication! I wouldn't worry about "losing" your REs because it's completely random! You might find that shiny frame after 6 encounters you may find it after 6000 - if anything I find it better to reset your game every 500 or so but it's completely up to the individual!

    Ahh someone in the previous thread told me the same thing! That is true! I just had the whole mindset "WHAT IF IT'S THE NEXT POKEMON"
    But that method might actually be better! It's just when I did close my ds, I wasn't keeping track of how much I had encountered ; ; I guess going to a new area is enough to restart it haha!
    I'll definietely give that method a try, maybe after 1k encounters since I'm nearing that

    I know what you mean about it possibly being the next one haha but I think it's good to reset your seed now and then! That said, my last two shinys have both been on one solid RE chain, I am still running the same one too - but that's because it seems lucky! I may actually MM for skorupi now though... because it's the only one I want in this area now hmm....
