    Hiya everyone! I have been hatching Charmander eggs for 3 weeks and am up to about 700 eggs. Will continue my hunt tonight after work. I really hope he shines before the 1000 mark! Keep up the good work everyone and good luck!

    Yes but only when u are with somebody in pinwheel forest u have to navigate with cheren and bianca in reverse mountain making everything double battles. This also only works till you lead them to where they need to go.

    Ah, so that Stoutland standing next to your Glaceon belongs to Cheren. Doing double battles with an NPC is a very risky move, unless you faint Cheren's Stoutland first

    Hey everyone, just thought I'd post an update about my 5th gen progress. I just finished boxing 360 more Ponyta eggs and I'm at 1596 right now, so I'm just hoping that I'll get a shiny in this batch. I won't be starting another MM hunt right after Ponyta shines since I just started hunting Groudon in SS and therefore have too many hunts going on at once >.< So, I'll mostly be hanging out in the 3rd and 4th gen threads, in all likelihood.

    Anyway, congrats on all recent shinies, especially Lileep and Audino =) Good luck to all of you on your hunts!

    Bit late as I didn't post, but I have to say I laughed a touch.

    Let me set this short story up-

    >Have a cousin
    >Cousin and I bought White/Black together
    >He wanted a shiny Flygon like he used to have
    >We co-owned a shop for a while
    >He sold the shop-cartridge and said quit pokemon for the time being having not replaced that shiny Flygon


    I got bored and threw my Jap Ditto and Flygon in the care and got a shiny Trapinch after 3 eggs.

    All I needed to be honest. Just made me laugh.

    I really wish releasing pokemon to the wild could affect the catch list of an area. think of all the bulbasaurs I released!!
    finally got past 200 Rattata in this latest batch, no shiny >.<

    Congrats! A fan of Recon Dye, I take it?

    Approaching 2,000 Tauros eggs now, and I will put this hunt on hold when it does hit 2,000, so I can do a 'smart shift' where I change target when a shiny is due, in order for a shorter hunt. Will probably switch target to Bulbasaur...

    Rocky as in the dog from the Look Whose Talking movie series with Travolta as the father?

    I'm boxing Oshawott eggs so I can hatch tomorrow on the bus, school is back in session for me.
    They're talking about having half-days for most of August due to some of the schools having no AC or lack-of so I may have a chance at hatching an egg.

    I even wish we could directly release eggs in the wild. o.O
    I still have 7 boxes of my first MM hunt Yanma in Platinum... Believe it or not.
    That hunt taught me a lesson to just use 3 boxes for MM.

    I did 400 encounters for my overall hunts today.

    Congrats on all the recent shinies!

    Looks like we had a flurry for a bit there - I was hoping this would entice my current hunt out, but it didn't.

    So far I've hatched 1,100 eggs in my Mystery Hunt and gathered 100 more last night.

    Question to all: what keeps you motivated DURING hunts? Personally, I look at the shiny sprite again and again, obviously come here, and even go to YouTube to watch videos of live captures/hatches/etc. to keep me motivated.

    I'm curious to see what others find extra motivating when they don't know when that shiny will appear...

    Good luck to all!

    I also watch YouTube videos of people getting the shiny that I am looking for live. I feel that that motivates me a lot. Abother thing that I do a lot is just watch tv. That really helps. I am currently watching the olympics to keep me motivated on my eevee hunt at Castelia Park.

    Wow new shiny topic. now I feel old. Vanished randomly for a few months, back tho..
    anyways I've hatched approx 4 boxes of Eevees. I really want a blue lined umbreon.... but then again maybe I could go for a 5th gen so people dont think it was hacked with a snap. idk. I'm doing Eevee right now, who thinks I should go back and do Solosis?

    Woot!!

    Finished my mystery Masuda Method hunt tonight on egg number 1,120!!

    The nature is perfect (Adamant), it's male (expected), and I even got the Solid Rock ability... Know what it is yet - my favorite Gen V Pokemon?

    TIRTOUGA!!!







    I'm actually pretty upset with it's IVs. The parents both had 27+ in Attack and mine got passed down... an 8.

    Oh, and it's Special Defense? A freaking ZERO. Ugh - someone make me feel better about these awful IV's.

    Still, can't be too disappointed as it was less than 1,366.

    Good luck to all and I hope my shiny luck wears off on you! Keep at it!

    Lastly, I updated my signature.

    well... I was going to drop a VM, but it's not enabled. so "congrats on tirtouga!"

    I've started back on my Drilbur hunt, I'm not going to keep track of eggs for this one though. Hopefully it goes quick *crosses fingers*
