    Hey all, going to cross post this as the shiny thread 2.0 goes way too fast.

    So, after some serious debating I've decided to put off shiny hatching until Black and White 2.

    I'm currently hatching for a shiny Spiritomb, but am only 100 eggs in, and seriously thought about if it would be worth hatching one without an Adamant nature. Of the three Pokemon I've MM'd, only one has had a nature that wasn't what I wanted, but the idea that the nature CAN possibly not be the one I want is scaring me away from pushing forward with Spirotomb.

    So... since BW2 guarantees the nature getting passed down, I think I'm just going to put all my MM's on hold and line up the Pokemon I want to hatch. I have my Japanese Ditto (Adamant) and my Spiritomb ready to go, and I'll line up other Pokemon I want to MM in the future, but hold off on actually hatching until BW2 is out.

    That's just me being paranoid...

    Good luck to all, and what are all of your thoughts on MMing when BW2 guarantees the nature you want getting passed down?

    So I just hatched a shiny Charmander after only 63 eggs. The guy in Nimbasa rated it decent all around and its highest iv is Defense and it's 27. It's male gentle nature and highly persistent. Overall it may not have the best ivs but I'm super happy anyways. I already have a shiny Charizard I got through a trade many years ago but this one will mean so much more because it's mine. It's also my 5th shiny starter which I have gotten myself. Now I only need a shiny Squirtle and I will have all of the Kanto starters shiny. Going to wait till White 2 and Black 2 come out in order to train it though that way it will be easier to complete the pokedex(which I aim to do in my White 2).Photo 127.jpg

    If I put a treecko with jolly nature and with an everstone, and a jaPanese ditto , if the everstone works does that mean the dittos not really Japanese?

    well, it should work. maybe you just had bad luck. sometimes I get a string of 10 or 15 in a row with the wrong natures, then 10 in a row of good natures

    I'm still MM'ing for my shiny Gastly. I'm somewhere over 1000 eggs so far. Starting to get discouraged a bit, but I will keep going.

    See I would never want a shiny gastly because I don't trust anyone to temporarily trade with to get gengar lol.

    If they have two ds's then they can just trade with themselves , otherwise I would demand a shiny hostage in return.

    I've paused my MM cyndaquil hunt and have been RE hunting in the double grass near dragonspiral tower. A couple of weeks ago I ran into a shiny sawsbuck, used false swipe, then sawsbuck proceeded to use take down . I didn't realize that it had that move. So now I have darkrai with hypnosis and its ability in my party to help me weaken the next shiny I come across.

    It's alright.. I'm more interested with the item that can make egg steps becomes 0.

    Indeed - the incubator?

    It'll be cool to see if that item makes it so ALL your eggs hatch instantly, or if it's per egg, meaning one incubator hatches one egg, and so on.

    That being said... I'm going to hold off on my Spiritomb MM, but I may do a Tepig MM hunt as I love his final shiny form and I wouldn't be heart broken if he wasn't the correct nature.

    I like Emboar, but I wouldn't put him in my permanent team like I will with Spiritomb.

    Sorry guys, noob question (can't see an answer anywhere) but while hatching eggs on Pokemon Black/White 2, when it hatches, will you then be able to tell if it's shiny? Or do you have to check the summary of each Pokemon to see?

    Thanks

    So I've decided to wait to hatch for a shiny Spiritomb, but I'm going to move forward in my attempt at a shiny Tepig!

    I figured I wouldn't be heartbroken if a Tepig hatches and it's the wrong nature, but it'll give me something to do in BW until BW2 comes out.

    I'll start breeding tonight for good IV's and then keep pushing until he/she hatches yellow!!

    Good luck to all!
