    I've started a bunch of hunts on my english White version. One is shiny Kyurem, the second is shiny Volcarona and lastly shiny Aron. This could take a while...

    Looks like I had another stroke of luck :3

    I went to bed last night with 280 eggs hatched. I got up this morning with the intention of not picking up my hunt again until tonight, when I decided to hatch my way up to 300 total eggs. Thats when on the 281'st egg, Castform developed blazing yellow eyes peering into my very soul

    So, this has been my 2nd successful MM.

    I will now EV train my Zubat and Castform and then pick up with another hunt

    I will try to attach a picture of the Castform, but my computer and camera and both meh so I don't know if it will work. If someone could clarify whether or not my attachment worked for them that would be great =p shinycastform.jpg

    P.S- I nicknamed my shiny Castform "Cloud", which is really quite an awful nickname.. any suggestions?

    I am also quite pleased that it turned out to be a Modest Female like I hoped.

    (shiny castform sprite )

    Also, grats on Sableye, Cocoadragon

    Congrats cocoadragon! What's your next hunt afterwards? But still, I hope I get my Pinwheel Forest shiny before 3,000 REs.

    Just looked at cocoadragon's sig and realised that I've done more than twice the amount of SRs that the Meganium shone at...

    I came a bit late to the Black/White party since I just bought White a week ago. So far on my first play through I have had 2 RE's with shinys. The first was a deerling that didn't end well (Flame body = not a good idea). The second was a shiny Liepard outside Opelucid City that I did manage to get. Now I am trying to hatch a shiny charmander so I can evolve it to Charizard.



    PS: Yay first post on the forum.

    I count my chained shinies separately from my MM, RE or SR shinies not because I think them less valuable.
    But more b/c the two groups have a large collection. I don't even count random shinies from non sparkled patches as 1/8219 shiny like some of you cuz it's still involving chaining.

    No, I don't see Shining Charm as a form of cheating either but I'm not gonna use it as I don't have problem finding shinies w/out it. I mean, tbh I'm curious too, if someday I decide to have it, I will definitely say something like I got this shiny using Shining Charm, etc. It will become my third large collection. But still, I don't find it easy to complete the dex.

    I'm actually excited about shiny charm.Not be cause of the shinies but be cause it will be my first time completing my pokedex.And we have to actually catch all the pokemon to get that thing so for me it would be a great challenge.^-^
    I played since pearl but i never had GBA games or wifi to complete my pokedex.This will be the first.

    YES!!! YES!!! YES!!! After 12,589 encounters in the Giant Chasm, I finally got my shiny!!! Here it is...
        Spoiler:- My first RE shiny!:


    It is a mild nature and has good endurance. So excited! Now to continue my Sneasel hunt that I put off since last summer! 900 eggs was put into my Sneasel hunt last summer, lets see how long it will take and if I can get my pink Sneasel before I go back to school on the 18th!

    Good luck everyone! I am so glad because this was the shiny I have been going for! (And Metang of course!)

    Yeah, that is a cool shiny there! At least it finally hatched, congratulations.

    Haven't started up my Pinwheel Forest hunt due to other hunts.

    HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe my eyes. I Have finally found a shiny starter, and it happens to be a Chikorita!

    I absolutely cannot believe it!!!! I must thank cocoadragon and dan2point5 for the inspiration and motivation. You two have helped me so much, I couldn't have got this without you two, thank you! It appeared after 15,552 Starters seen and 5,184 SRs! I cannot believe it at all! I don't mind it being Chikorita! Longest hunt is over!

    Ok, so... I started my hunt for a shiny Carvanha. The first 120 eggs didn't give me anything, so I stocked up four more boxes. I just started hatching them, and this came after 8 eggs into this batch. That brings the hunt to 128 eggs
    As you can see, it's Hardy natured, which neutral, right? Well, the Everstone trick didn't work...

    I still got almost four boxes left, so you don't know if I get some more. After all, I did with Shellder

        Spoiler:- Pic:


    Not sure what to go for next. I want to MM Togepi, Castform, Geodude and Ponyta. But not sure which to go for...

    Hahaha. I named it T-Swagga-G because I told my friend Taylor that I was gonna name my next shiny after her and it was the first funny and random nickname that I came up with that would match her name. xP Whenever I get my Sneasel, I am naming it "DJ K MAC" and my Aipom will be "BeffaB****" (Can't quite show the full name for obvious reasons). They are all nicknames for my friends that I will be rooming with for my last semester of college!

    And thanks cocoa! It took FOREVER!!!!

    And congrats on the Cubone Kurt and Aqua for the Chikorita! (you were going for Cyndaquil though, right?)

    Today I got the shiny charm huzza!

    I had to poke-shift from Diamond and trade over nearly everything from an English Pokemon Black to the Japanese Black 2. I decided that My old Japanese Black 1 is going to be my pokedex game, so for that I bred about 400 Axews, no shinies found. I has previously bred over 1,000 pokemon trying to get the Masuda method to work without luck. Now that I have the shiny charm, hopefully I'll have something to report soon. I am thinking of going back to hunt for Venipede or trying to breed Larvesta again.

    Nice one, PocketMonstre! I haven't really seen many Castform, let alone shiny ones. As for nicknames, I find it best to first go to something like Bulbapedia or somewhere that not only breaks down the name, but also has a lot of information about the particular Pokemon in regards to its behaviour or description. Then I load up Wikipedia and put in anything that may have a link to the Pokemon, or use Thesaurus.com.

    Here are a few suggestions that you don't have to use, but might give you some inspiration.

    Fogg
    Foggi
    Raine
    Summer
    Hailey
    Sunny
    Popo
    Celly
    Misty :P
    Droplet
    Cloud :P
    Cumulus
    Stratus
    Nimbus
    Puff
    Puffy
    Puffcuddle
    Alto
    Altos
    Cirros
    Fluffstuff
    Cotton
    Droplette
    Dew
    Flamette
    CliMate
    Aurora

    That only took me a few minutes. I admit that some are pretty dopey, but oh well! :P Maybe there's something there that catches your eye or gives you something to work with or whatever. Good luck! Let us know what you choose.

    Also, congratulations to Cocoadragon on that beautiful Sableye! I love that little thing.

    15 boxes, 2rsa?! Good luck ... I give you permission to scream if there's nothing in there.

    Good job catching that Liepard, Landroval! Sorry to hear about the Deerling. Things like that are something that happens to a lot of people because we're too excited and don't anticipate them. Are you going to reclaim it?

    And a big congrats to Kittykitty! Finallyfinally!

    Right now I'm mass producing charmanders so I can eventually get the shiny Charizard.

    I'm just trying to collect shinies, I'm not picky on the stats.

    I have some nice tips to fight boredom and discourage on a long hunt.

    -(SR)put in your latest SR shiny as your first pokemon. then when feeling discouraged you just wait a few sec. and when you see the sparkle you get new hope.
    -(SR-MM) watch a movie during your hunt and only look briefly at the screeen.
    -(SR-MM) watch youtube videos of suceeded shiny hunts.
