    I did take pictures but i can't upload them right now as i'm currently out babysitting and i left my USB at home but when i get home i'll edit my post and upload it.

    I can't remember the exact nature or stats but it came after 770 encounters (most of which were from my Route 3 hunt i said i'd do the other day which i gave up by the way...), is male and has renewed my shiny hunting passion after losing the majority of them after my Black corrupted a couple weeks back.

    Going to try and Masuda Method (and reclaim!) my shiny Zorua and Venipede i think (going to catch a lot of Munna for Synchronize first though to help me find an adamant natured Venipede in Pinwheel Forest)

    EDIT (5th April): Here he is~



    He came randomly in the Desert as i was searching for the Rock Tomb TM for my Sandile (as you can see in the picture he's close to evolving) to help me out in the 4th gym against Elesa (darn Emolga's...)

    NOTE: Yeah i know i crossed out my I.D as i've heard from some friends that hackers go around checking the I.D's and then somehow make them their own-i don't get how but i'd rather be safe than sorry x3

    I'll be going to the Dreamyard sometime today (it's the 5th April when i write this x3) to start Munna hunting for Synchronize and it'll probably take a few days to get all natures, then i'll be MMing for both Venipede and Zorua (probably won't be lucky enough o get a female Zorua again though...)

    Also, i was thinking of doing a badge quest on Pokemon SoulSilver since i have my shiny Cyndaquil on it...what is a badge quest exactly? If anybody could tell me that'd be great-thank you ^^
    Sorry to quote the entire post, but a BQ is when you get a shiny before each badge. Cyndaquil would be your shiny for Badge 1, for example.

    Anyways, as an update, I am currently hatching eggs 191-195, so I'm on track to hit 210 eggs. I almost felt like reaching for my Platinum game and hunting on that, but not now due to my MM hunt.

    Currently at 120 eggs hatched, and a full box left to hatch before i have to produce more eggs
    @ @ Hatching eggs is suffering, especially trying to balance it with school work. Hopefully I can hatch more later tonight.

    First of all, good luck on your hunt! Secondly,if you have a rubber band you can use it to hold down the L+R buttons which makes SRing a lot faster. Also, make sure you come well prepared and know how much PP it has left just incase it struggles itself to death(or a masterball). Also, patience is key. The odds are 1/8192(or 1/2730.6 if you're using the charm) so it can appear at any time. A good way to keep motivation is to do something else while you hunt, and videos of what shiny you're after on youtube help alot also. If anybody wants to add anything go ahead.

    Dang, you beat me starrah! But congratulations on Horsea, it is a beautiful shiny.

    250 Eggs for Larvesta/Staryu at the moment, hoping to get to 300 Eggs hatched tonight!

    PTFC, you could go for one of:

    Spinarak, Zubat, Eevee, Mareep, Poliwag (DW), Tangela, Magikarp, Munna, Dwebble, Drifloon, Stunky, Unova Starters, Torchic, Mudkip or even Wingull...

    Just some suggestions, but most of those are my targets too :P I think completing the Hoenn starters would really look good with Sceptile, and Politoed would compliment your Ninetales in terms of Drought and Drizzle.

    2314 encounters, somehow I predicted this one even though my hunt was for Pawniard. Least it wasn't Garbodor....

    EDIT

    So something happens after this. I check my Grottos everytime I get a shiny, cause you know, you run around for hours so it obv will regenerate grottos and such. Went to the one outside Pinwheel Forest, found a Poliwhirl. Caught it, Timid/Alert to sounds. Good IV's in Defense, Special Attack and flawless Speed.



    Lol, afraid to check the Abundant Shrine and see if I find a Vulpix, or god forbid a Dragonite at Route 18.

    EDIT2

    Luck continues....

    Congratulations on the Shinies TopDecking Shinobi and everyone else!

    I'm doing my first ever MM hunt, and I've decided to go for Charmander. I've only just started so I am on 21 eggs!

    EDIT: Currently on 93 eggs with no success, and may I ask how people can do about 300 eggs PER NIGHT? I've only managed 93 in 2.5 Hours!

    EDIT 2: Hatched 135 eggs, yet still no success. Did a little bit of SRing on FireRed, but got fed up quickly so I am only going to do MMing on Black for that Shiny Charmander!

    I got a Growlithe and Charmander this month. The Growlithe was around 600-700 eggs, no idea how many the Charmander took tho. Keep at it, you'll get it eventually =)

    I'm not gonna be hunting on 5th Gen for a while now, because:

    1) I need to finish my Platinum and HeartGold Badge Quests, and...
    2) I am going to start school again tomorrow

    Damn, especially for number two ¬.¬

    Thank you ^^ Would i be able to catch regular Pokemon too for HM slaves or for the likes of Static or can i only use my shiny Pokemon? See i got my first badge with Cyndaquil (Pyro) and now want to try and get a shiny Mareep on Route 32 for the second badge. Also good luck on your MM hunt!

    Not yet as i have had a lack of motivation-though the other day on White i did start my MM for Venipede, Zorua and Tynamo (only did 30 of each though). Hope Charmander shines for you soon!

    I haven't been on my games much since my shiny Darumaka the other week, but i'm now motivated enough to shiny hunt again. Tonight i will start collecting eggs for Venipede and Zorua again as i want those two more than Tynamo right now (is there any difference between normal and shiny Tynamo anyway-as i can't see it >.>''

    Starting my voluntary job at a hospital tomorrow, so will be working on collecting eggs/hatching on the bus to and from there probably and who knows luck may kick in (...okay maybe not but it's nice to dream~)
    I love fire and electric types, hence my username!

    Current chaining targets (Platinum): and

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

    Cheers NitroLightningFlash! I've hatched my 250th egg, with no luck. I am going back to School tomorrow, so I will only be doing 50 eggs a day (MAX). Good luck with your Shiny Tynamo, Zorua and Venipede, and good luck to everyone else too!

    I recently started a Shiny Psyduck Masuda Method hunt on White version. I've been breeding an English Golduck with my trusty Japanese Ditto and I've been collecting eggs since Tuesday. I've currently hatched a little over 300 Psyduck eggs and I've stored another 25 eggs in my PC. I'll start hatching those either tonight or tomorrow morning. I've also worked on some other hunts including a random encounter hunt, but I've decided to put those aside for now since I wasn't having much success and hatching eggs for Shinies is always easier than looking for them at random in tall grass imo.

    NLF, you can use anything. Shinies could be boxed if you wanted to, or you could use them. You can do anything with your shinies in the BQ. I am only using specific shinies in my play through like Hoothoot (only because I have two).

    that's great thank you! I've done over 300 wild encounters and nothing yet.

    I have another shiny to report:



    He came after i'd only hatched 65 Venipede eggs and 185 eggs in total. I started collecting eggs Sunday night, only managed to collect 2 boxes that night, Monday i did 4, again didn't hatch them though. On tuesday (yesterday) i hatched all of them and around 6pm, in box 3, Pokemon 5-my shiny Venipede appeared!

    Everstone worked too, so he's Adamant natured which makes me happy because as some people know-i got two Sassy natured ones in a row last year (on my Black file which stopped working) before i got my adamant one.

    Really happy as Scolipede is my favorite 5th Generation shiny!

    I had a feeling Venipede would come before Zorua, and now i'm going to complete White so i can start White 2....or maybe i'll keep trying to hatch for Zorua x3

    Congratulations NitroLitghtningFlash, that's a fairly quick result for a shiny.

    I haven't had any success for a while now so I'm hoping my luck changes soon.

    Did anyone get a Shiny Axew or Fraxure during White/Black? I encountered a Shiny Axew when White was still new, and he was one of the greatest shinies I had ever randomly encountered- rare too. But then they introduced a Shiny Haxorous in Black2/White2 and completely ruined my joy. : (
    It's like how Red Gyarados ruined Shiny Gyrados, it's just not so rare and unique anymore.
    I still love Stereo, my Shiny Haxorous. :"3

    I'm stiiiiiiiiiiilllll trying for that Charmander! Over 2000 eggs for sure now. Maybe even 3000. I lost count. I've been MM it since Diamond two years ago lol.
    I have the Shiny Charm as well! That Charmander just doesn't want to shine...
    The Shiny Charm is pretty handy though.
    When I was hatching a Shroomish for my team, a random Shiny appeared after only 6 eggs... sheesh. It's not as good as my original Breloom (which I forgot to put Spore on, hence the breeding) but it's still great. Oh and I was trying to hatch eggs for those C-Gear Funfest Mission things so I grabbed a bunch of random Munchlax eggs because my Snorlax was in the Daycare for some obscure reason. Choosing Munchlax to do the Funfest was not the best idea. After the mission, I went back to release all the Munchlax and I noticed that one of them turned out to be shiny! After 5 eggs! : O Now my Bf uses it in his White team haha. It's pretty good as well. He's using my Shiny Totodile from SS as well.

    PS: this thread is so cool because everyone here is so supportive. c:

    Meh, I've put my Larvesta hunt as abandoned now, I have two Badge Quests to focus on first...

    @above poster, I disagree with the first couple of sentences. They didn't ruin the value of anything, it just makes your own shiny Haxorus/Gyarados much more valuable to yourself. If you got a shiny Axew/Magikarp and evolved them both before finding out about the preset shinies, it means that you know it was not the preset shiny, which makes it more valuable to you.
    Therefore, I disagree with the presets making other shinies from the same species less valuable. It makes them more valuable!
