    YES, after 5277 SRs, only 13 SRs today in my Japanese Black, this awesome thing appeared . I knew it was shiny because the same thing happened to me with my shiny Thundurus, the L/R buttons were held down by an elastic band and it was shifting between normal and SHINY! I shouted OH MY GOD, and was freaking out, now my family think I'm crazy XD.


    Normal VS Shiny comparison!
    Another angle

    Oh man, now I'm excited, I get to track down this badness, and capture it. Right now I'm too busy staring at the screen in the above picture. The difference was startling to me, so glad it was easier to spot than I thought it would .

    I just hope it'll be an easy capture .

    EDIT:
    Yeah, caught it!

        Spoiler:- Pics under here:


    This thing took AGES to capture, breaking free of several types of Pokeballs(including Pokeballs ) before I was successful in capturing it in a Luxury Ball.

    Shiny Tornadus, Lonely nature

    It has a Lonely nature, and I'm glad it is finally in my possession ^_^.

    Landorus is a standard stationary legend so just SR for it like you would any other legendary pokemon. For the roamers, however, their PID is set once they fly off and will remain set until they are captured or until they are KO'd and re-spawned.

    Hi All!

    Just passed 5000 RE now on my Black Version, doing over 500 today! Still no luck though, but I hope I get a Shiny on Route 9 soon! Please just don't be a Shiny Gothorita though, PLEASE!

    See Ya!

    EDIT: WTF, 5006 Encounters, then my Game freezes! Never happened on Black before, so I had to reboot my game and start at 4638 Encounters So, so annoyed at the moment!

    OMG Guys!

    As you may have known from my Post above, I was really annoyed earlier, but now I am so happy!

    A SHINY PAWNIARD has just appeared in Black!

    I can't show any proof as my camera is dodgy at the moment, but I will try to post a pic ASAP!

    Sorry for the Double Post Mods and I beat you jorge565 (We were racing for a Shiny)

    Ive had a seriously lucky run, of late! I caught a Shiny Marill in B2 whilst searching for the Grotto in Route 22, just over a fortnight ago. Then, earlier this evening, I caught a Shiny Magnemite in Virbank Complex, on a re-started W2 game! Including the Zigzagoon in Sapphire, I have 3 in 7 weeks! Seriously cannot believe my luck!!!

    I thought I'd post a little update on my hunt for Shiny Electrike... It has been, unfortunately, on hold since the Meloetta Event... The reason for this is, I was soft resetting for specific Nature/Characteristic/IV on 2 out of 5 Meloetta from the event. (I like to get at least 5 of the Event Pokémon. 1, or 2 depending on the Pokémon, to raise for a team, the rest to remain unchanged from the event.) Then the Deoxys Wi-Fi Event came around then I did the same for Deoxys. I only got 1 to have the Nature/Characteristic/IV, and I'm still soft resetting my 5th Deoxys for the things I'm wanting... Hopefully I get the Deoxys I'm wanting soon so I can continue my absurdly long hunt for Shiny Electrike...

    I just took a look at my count for Electrike Eggs and I am currently at 3,168 Eggs... I feel like it'll never shine, and I often consider dropping this hunt... But my friends keep telling me to "Keep going! It will feel amazing when you get it since it's taken this long!" But the thing is... This hunt has been going on for the past year. I haven't been actually hatching eggs a whole year. I started the hunt over a year ago, but I took a lot of long breaks. Anyway, when a hunt has gone on this long, you kind of lose interest in the hunt, and you feel discouraged...

    The really dumb part is, whenever I talk about considering dropping this hunt, one of my friends says "Then I'm giving up on hunting for Shiny Vulpix." What makes it so stupid is, he is jealous of my Shiny Ninetales, and he says he is going to hunt for a Shiny Vulpix(Or any Shiny.), but he never sticks to it. After like, 50 Encounters/Eggs/SR's he complains and gives up because "It's taking forever" and that he "is never going to get it". My thought whenever this happens is, "So, if I give up on a hunt that's gone on longer then every 'hunt' you've done combined, you are going to give up on a hunt that you haven't even made a dent into?"

    Anyway, I apologize for the somewhat long story, but I just needed to kinda vent about it... After Shiny Electrike decides to shine, I already have 2 targets I am going to go for. I'm not sure if I want to go for Shiny Beldum via MM first, or Regirock via SR. But before I jump into my next hunt after Electrike, I am going to EV train some Pokémon. So anyway, Congrats to all who have gotten a Shiny recently, and good luck to those of you who are hunting!!

    Just snagged a shiny Seel in B2. The ironic part was I was training a dewgong and the sound of the shine at the start of the encounter caught my attention.

    Copied from the shiny thread in general pokemon discussion. Posted at 1am this morning

    Omg!! I've just had my first ever random encounter shiny, and my first 5th gen shiny :O A shiny Ferroseed.

    I was playing a bit more of White 2 before bed, doing some exploring of Chargestone Cave. I caught N's Klink, picked up an item, then was going to get another one when an encounter started. Was a Ferroseed. And it sparkled!! I was not expecting that at all!! And the first Ferroseed I've seen on this game. If I hadn't seen the sparkles, I would not have noticed. Wow. Images below. They're quite large

    I don't think I'll use it on my team, but will definitely evolve it at some point.

        Spoiler:- Shiny!!:


    If only Latias could be this nice and shine for me.

    After reading all these majestic posts about catching Shiny Legendries, Im starting to feel that the shiny Woobat I caught is worthless (but I traded it for, like, a Chikorita or sommat. Im starting to be quite upset as of my choice )

    I can't find my toothbrush, and it's REALLY STRESSIN' ME OUT!

    I randomly caught a shiny Sewaddle while searching for Pansage and Panpour in Pinwheel Forest. I wasn't even looking at the screen when it appeared because I was looking something my boyfriend showed from his game but luckily he catch the usual shiny "bling" sound (he's way more alerted to that since he does PokéRadar chaining in 4th Generation but I don't) and I was able to catch my cute shiny Sewaddle :3 I won't ever evolve it since it's much more cute as Sewaddle than in other forms.

    Wow, congrats on all the latest shinies! There's been loads of great ones .

    *Casually pastes modified post from the other shiny thread*

    Asdfadfs, this happened a few days ago now, but I've been so stupidly busy that I've only just had time to post about it:

    After 7798 SRs, and hunting for it since December, I finally got a shiny Kyurem!!!

    Last Sunday, I was lying down upstairs watching Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope with my dad, and since I hadn't had time to do any soft resetting earlier on in the week I thought it'd be a good time to get some SRs in for Kyurem, thinking I'd probably have to hunt for a few more weeks yet. Then about halfway through the movie...

        Spoiler:- *ein gasp*:


    Now that Kyuwuji's EV trained and battle ready, I can get back to focusing on my other targets, most importantly Tepig on White 2 who I'm on 2090 SRs for~

    Good luck everyone on your hunts!

    Congrats on Kyurem, that will be my first hunt after I finish SR'ing for Zekrom, then who knows, might SR for Shiny Jirachi just so that I can brag about having a Legit Shiny Jirachi.

    Thanks! ^_^ But aah, don't bother SRing for Zekrom- In all of the Gen 5 games, Reshiram and Zekrom cannot legitimately be shiny, ever. I hope you haven't done too many SRs, unlike a poor someone I know who did around 27000 SRs for Reshiram before it was discovered the two legendaries had a shiny lock .

    EDIT: Ah right, phew. When you said SRing I assumed you were going for a shiny one XD. Sorry!
