    It's not just absurd, it's pure stupidity. Masuda Method is called that exactly because it is a method promoted by Junichi Masuda, THE GAME DIRECTOR OF GAME FREAK.

    Which means any shiny obtained via MM are TRUE shinies, since it is obtained by a method that's actually implemented into the game by Game Freak themselves, instead of using any kinds of cheating device.





    Anyway, still MM-ing for Squirtle in my Black, 400 eggs and still no shiny. I hope I'll have it before 500 eggs.....

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    -(SR-MM) watch a movie during your hunt and only look briefly at the screeen.
    -(SR-MM) watch youtube videos of suceeded shiny hunts.
    I am doing that now for my Mareep hunt. It works, you bet.
    Also, Youtube is a great tool for us =D

    PocketMonstre, I have some active shiny hunting youtubers:

    pokewaf
    customlegominifig
    shinyhunterzach
    Alpha Zapdos
    PureSkill740
    shinyhunternick
    Abenzio499

    If you sub to those, you'll find others as well, because they support a lot of new hunters, so you'll often get a lot of stuff to watch.

    Anyways, not doing REs for Pinwheel Forest yet...

    Been MMing Purrloin all this weekend with no successs. I thought I hatched it last night, but that was just my overtired brain tricking me. I've now hatched 236(7 boxes full). I'm going to finish off this box, then take a break and play Conquest before I resume the hunt, as I'm getting sick of seeing non-shiny Purrloin.

    Sorry about that =p Good luck with your treecko hunt, it will surely shine soon. I am also jealous of your shiny emolga haha.

    About longest/shortest hunt, I have only done 2 so far, and they were pretty close
    Zubat - 301 eggs
    Castform -281 eggs

    @ZaneClarthy, thanks for the nickname ideas, they are inspirational. I changed its named to 'Aeris', which is Latin for atmosphere/air, but I kind of like "Dew" or "Droplet" more

    5 boxes of eggs ready to hatch, im going to fill the remaining 3 and hatch all 240 at once to take me over 1000 (if it dosent shine of course) @pocket monstre im not that jealous of you zubat has amazing shiny evolutions and castform is quite rare, but the shiny is actually quite nice, any ideas of what you'll be hunting next? as for emolga its a nice enough shiny but utterly useless to me because its highest iv is 17 in defense. Anyway im more motivated than ever, i see the closer to the odds you are the more likely the next egg will shine ... 1366 here i come

    How many boxes do you normally stock up before hatching? I feel like an egg hoarding addict because I HAVE to box 15 boxes before hatching. And can you imagine what it must look like for someone to bring an egg to a pc and somehow store the egg in it until they are ready to hatch it? I mean pokemon themselves are one thing because they are in balls, but the egg is just an egg. *smacks self* Woah. Going in this too much. It's just a game, it's just a game. Anyways... 2 1/2 boxes left to store before I start hatching my first NEW batch of Sneasel eggs.

    Sorry for posting twice so close together, its just that my above post is a bit cluttered.

    @PaddysTurtwigFanClub , I haven't decided what I will be hunting next but I do have a few in mind. Emolga/feebas/aipom/slowpoke/or a RE hunt on various routes are all being considered.

    A couple days ago I got a female Japanese 31/x/31/x/31/x Bold storm drain Lileep off the GTS (I don't care what anyone says about the GTS I love it....sometimes) for one of the extra Kabuto I had and I began to MM using it so I can get an awesomely green Lileep that could possibly be used competitively. So far nothing, I've hatched about 423 eggs and nothing. I really hope the hunt doesn't last as long as my Kabuto hunt, hatching 3000 eggs gets really tedious.

    Its been a really long time since i got a new shiny well today i made up for it. So i was doing grass shaking spots my White2 in Pinwheel forest and after 495 i got this, and so i decided to keep going and after another 73 i got a second one. i wasnt able to take a pic of the 2nd one cause when it was in battle, i didnt have anything to take a pic and my battery was gonna die. First one is male with lonely nature and the 2nd was a female with relaxed nature. Overall im just glad my drought is over, and still no shiny from my secret MM lost count but im prolly around 3k.

    sorry for the pics




    Congrats on all shinies, i love seeing ppls new shinies its what keeps me going.

    I come bearing good luck!....and a new shiny!

    On my 606th egg this thing popped out:



    Another green shiny to add to my collection! Although its evolution is pink I will let it slide only because it is Cradily ... and I like Cradily.

    The Everstone didn't work Its nature is the exact opposite of what I wanted lonely instead of Bold and it didn't get its hidden ability but oh well a shiny is a shiny.
    Its Ivs on the other hand are "outstanding" according to the guy at the battle subway with 31 IVs in Def so...yay.

    I now have 3/10 shinys I'm catching up!
