    Haha, on my SS i had a shiny caterpie that i always battled with! Just for the fun of it. Sure it brought my win/loss ratio more to the losing side. but oh well.

    I began my shiny Feebas hunt last night, but that requires first setting up a pair of parents.

    To do this, I need to get an Abra with a Bold nature (done) and Synchronize (done), trade it to my copy of White (done) and then find a Feebas with good IV's and a Bold nature to be the American parent (done).

    It takes a bit of work, but I've done it, and the parent I got is actually PRETTY good! Only took me about an hour to find one with these strong IV's, and I dunno... I thought it was good enough to settle on!



    Now I need to transfer another Abra with Synchronize and a Bold nature (which I already have) to my Japanese copy of Soul Silver.

    I'll be doing that tonight, and hoping to find a Ditto with IV's that are somewhat near this, then the breeding process begins.

    Good luck to all, just an update on how I do things/how far I'd gotten!

    And ImAnOKIE12, go for Totodile!!

    That' nothing! I'm on 2000+ eggs for my shiny Staryu. My little sister is also MM and got 3 shiny bulbasaurs within 2000! Some people have all the luck! She's so lucky though that she has been running into the same shinies again and so she gave me a shiny delibird and solrock! Yay.

    ....and a charmander! Still my second charmander hasn't blessed me with its presence yet so you still have time to catch up :P

    Btw, if you like the Solrock and Delibird I gave you, then they deserve to be in your sig

    In hunt news, at 750 eggs for charmander two and 6000 RE's in the outside of giant chasm (hoping for lunatone)

    EDIT: Don't know whether to be happy or devastated, just over 6500 RE's and a shiny turns up! But it turns out to not be the Lunatone or any other that I dont have for that matter, but my 3rd shiny SOLROCK

    As I've got one for myself and given a second to my sister, anyone else want it? PM me with offers if you'd like to trade another shiny.

    At 900 eggs for my second charmander so I hope I haven't spoilt my luck this evening. Good luck to everyone else.

    YASSSSS!! Finally after 20,967 encounters a shiny Lickitung appears! I went into this thinking it would be just another average hunt but it turned out to be my longest re hunt! All I can say is Challenger's Cave definitely challenged my patience.

    Congrats on the shiny lickitung . I'm taking a break from my MM hunt on my white and switched back to my RE hunt for shiny swellow on my black. I've decided that I don't like being "stuck" by having both games on a shiny hunt at the same time because it makes it difficult to do my dailies (rock shard, heart scale, treasure hunter dude, etc...). So on my white since its finally winter I decided to pause my MM hunt and set myself up in the double grass next to dragonspiral tower. I've been wanting to RE druddigon, sawsbuck and meinshao but I didn't want to do it in single grass (had enough of that on my shiny purrloin hunt >_<..) so I paused my MM hunt and got a jolly syncer in my party and ran up the snow slope, so that way at least I'll be up there even when the snow is gone for next month. After setting up I switched back to my RE shiny swellow hunt (double grass on the little island in the ocean) and as of today I've just passed the 1,200 mark for swellow encounters. I checked my card and I've run into around 5,000ish wild pokemon total and so far no shiny sightings yet. I'll finish my swellow hunt on my black and leave the shiny hunts to my white version (since I have the power items on that one)

    Hey all, quick question/advice needed.

    I'm going to start breeding for a shiny Feebas, then evolve it into a Milotic.

    My Japanese Ditto's IV's are as follows:

    23/24/25/16/26/29

    I have a Japanese Bold Ditto and my American Feebas ready to go. I'm going to have Ditto hold the Everstone to pass down its Bold Nature, and my Feebas' IV's are as follows:

    31/10/29/27/30/31

    My question is - which of those IV's should I pass down? I know Milotic is a Special Defense beast, so should I pass that stat down? I plan on using it as Special Attacker, so should I pass that down?

    Any help would be awesome!!

    I cleaned up my boxes in b/w so now I have 1 more box to use for MMing now I have the space to hold 450 pokemon. So far I have hatched only 450 eggs for my next hunt (that new kingdom hearts game came out so i dont have as much time devoted to hunting) ...I think all my shiny luck was used on my lileep so this hunt is going to take longer.....hopefully not kabuto long . : (

    @YNCRN I suggest Sp atk because since the ivs of both parents speed Def hp and SP def both look good there is a good chance they will naturally get passed down.

    Are you sure? because I used that with a modest Flareon and Japanese leafeon (or something I forgot) and a ton of my eevees are now modest like its supposed to work.

    Actually, everstone does work with Masuda method, a lot of my MM shinies got the right nature passed down from the parent.

    In generation 4 the Masuda Method would cancel the effect of the everstone for passing natures.
    In generation 5 that restriction was lifted, so the everstone trick works with Masuda Method now.

    @YNCRN, I would lock HP for now and wait until you get a baby with a 31 in Def. That's just me though

    This is true.

    The Masuda Method does work in Gen V. It's not a GUARANTEED pass down of the nature (like in B2W2), but it does give a 50/50 chance of the desired nature passing down.

    I just don't know WHICH to pass down before I start hatching!!!

    Wait, B2/W2 is ruining that too? OMg seriously they're making MMing as easy as chaining now. its not even going to be worth it once they release it. T_T

    ^ I don't think that's true either, I asked in the B2/W2 thread and they said its not guaranteed and even if it was how would that make MM'ing as easy as chaining :s?

    ^ ok good. and maybe not as easy as chaining btu seriously, if you have both the charms you'll get a bunch of eggs easily, you'll have the highest chance of getting a shiny by breeding, and you're gerunteed your favorite nature? that just seems like the only challenge left is hatching the eggs. and that's easy too if you have flame body and the max hatching power. :/
