    Nice one, ChaChi!

    There's not many cooler feelings than running into a shiny in the wild - totally unpredictable!

    This may sound crazy, but I genuinely think shinies are more common in Japanese games. I had NEVER encountered a shiny in the wild in my 10+ years of playing Pokemon, and then I bought Soul Silver in Japanese.

    Since then, I've had two random encounters, a Drowzee and a Ditto, both in the Japanese game, and the play time on the Japanese game is <15 hours.

    It's nuts!!

    Congrats again on the shiny!

    I'm currently grinding the battle subway to get the Power Anklet so I can EV train my Tirtouga.

    Best of luck to all!!

    The odds are still the same 1/8193 for a random encounter for a shiny. Your just lucky in your Japaneese Game and unlucky in your other games.

    If you have two pokemon breeding for a shiny, im using masuda method, and you take them out of the daycare to breed something else for someone, does it reset your chances of getting a shiny? This just crossed my mind the other day and was jut wondering, and Congrats guys on the other pokemon

    nothing "resets" your chance, really. every egg will have the same ~1/1300 chance at being shiny, no matter what you do.

    Danger has it right.

    I've decided what my next hunt is going to be: A shiny Milotic.

    Back in the Ruby/Sapphire days I hatched about 5,000 eggs to get a shiny Feebas and evolve it into a shiny Milotic. I have no idea where that cartridge went, but it's burned me every day that I don't still have that shiny Milotic.

    For that reason, I'm going to start catching Feebas and begin the process of hatching for a shiny Feebas to evolve it into a Milotic.

    I always get excited when starting a new hunt.

    Ugh...Charmander doesn't like to shine. I was thinking of restarting my Firered so I could dual hunt, but I'm not too sure if I want to. What do you guys think, is it worth it?

    I've now hatched 336 Purrloin eggs with no shine. I've started hatching the eggs while REing at route 3, so hoping for a sparkle soon! I'm also going to have to empty out the six boxes of Purrloin that I have since I've run out of box space. Good luck everyone!

    Shiny hunting has changed a lot since the MM became known. I spent about a year and THOUSANDS of eggs on my Diamond cartridge to get my shiny Pichu and Charmander. It seems that people get upset if they do not get a shiny after 2 boxes of eggs. 2 BOXES! It is much easier now.

    I made my own trainer cards. I got the sprites from various websites.

    Try this one first since they have so many sprites from all generations of the games --> http://www.spriters-resource.com/ds/...ite/index.html

    I made them originally using MS Paint. Now on my Mac I use a "Paint"-like program called Paintbrush.



    Shiny's have been EV trained finally!

    Well now you know why, multi-egg hunts are not as fruitful as I'd hoped it seems.

    Hey guys, been busy training up my Giratina. Once I have finished that I may go back to MMing Tauros again.

    Giratina's moveset is Earth Power, Calm Mind, Aura Sphere, Shadow Force. I'm toying with replacing Shadow Force with Draco Meteor, is that a good idea? Is the coverage better as it is at present?

    I was lucky enough to find a shiny Patrat and a shiny Drilbur while trying to hatch some eggs! I still need to train Patrat, but my Drilbur has evolved into Excadrill!

    Got a Sudowoodo Shint for a spare shaymin I had off of the wifi network. I also troll'd the double battle random matchup with my shiny Heatmor and shiny Durant duo. People prolly lol @ the pair up of predator and prey, and lol @ how easy it is to dispose of these two. Either way, my shiny Durant OHKO'd a shiny Latios on there.
