    I'm SRing for a special target now, one I have been dying to get for a while now.
    I am hoping it goes under 100 SRS but since it's a legendary I doubt that, but it'll be a nice compliment to my Meganium and the greatest shiny before school starts.

    Bummer the old thread is closing.

    Congrats on shiny shellders, incredible shiny right there for both shellder and cloyster.

    Okay traded my shiny magnemite to Black, and what do you know, Magnet Pull ability!!! Wow this shiny is one of the best ones I've had in terms of nature, ability, and IVs all coming together. Also decided not to evolve it to Magnezone since Magneton looks nicer IMO and is still very usable with Eviolite. So I will comence EV training and then beat up Roxie, and hunt whatever I may decide to hunt.

    Also good luck to everyone, especially Aqua since that hunt has really gone over the odds, and I feel your pain with my first Johto starter hunt.

    I notice most of hunters here like to leave their DS on while REing. I always restart after 100 encounters. It doesn't affect the chance, I just like to 'save time' and feel more lucky this way.

    I hope I can do more encounters today for my RE hunts and I hope Vullaby will shine in JPN BLCK, it's at 6,600 REs.

    Congrats on new shinies caught.
    EDIT: Congrats on The Zubat below me. Crobat is my fave pokemon (though I dislike the shiny). It's still awesome.

    This just in, I have my first captured/hatched shiny ever! I was MM'ing a few minutes ago, and a shiny Zubat hatched from egg number 301. I am incredibly happy. I jumped out of my chair ^_^

    It is a hasty nature, so the jolly everstone didn't work, but hasty nature boosts speed so it doesn't even matter

    I bred it with a 31 Speed IV so I'm glad about that. I was watching tv, specifically an old animated reality show called "Drawn Together"- and I hadn't looked down at my DS for about 3 minutes. I knew an egg had hatched. I looked down and I got a nice surprise. I was quite tired and slowly falling out of focus, I almost went to bed but decided to hatch another 5 eggs, and I am glad I did (even though the same egg would have hatched shiny tomorrow, its nice to go to bed content)

    Anyway I have been having trouble uploading pics, but here is a shabby attempt at a low quality pic, so might be some problems. shinyzubat.jpg

    It is a Hasty Male Zubat named Jellybean. Egg received, 7/22/2012, Route 3, Alert to sounds.

    Finally my first successful MM I have decided to go for either feebas/emolga/castform/trapinch next. I was originally just going to do emolga and castform, but I might do a 4 pokemon multi hunt.

    EDIT: I just realized that on my English White, I have not yet seen a Crobat. This means that my pokedex will display a shiny Crobat as the default ^_^ I do intend to fully evolve my Zubat and keep it as a permanent post-game team member for BW/BW2/Beyond.

    Annoying since now there's no cure for Attract/Cute Charm.

    Probably their effects will return in the R/S/E remake, which is supposed to be also on Gen 5.....R/S were the games that introduced the colored Flutes, after all.
    The returning effects could be used to promote the remakes.







    EDIT : congrats on the Zubat
    Hasty is a quite good Nature, since you can make it into a Mixed Crobat.

    Today, I hatched another 120 eggs in my 4 pokemon multi hunt for Minccino, Sewaddle, Pidove, and Lillipup. Bringing me to 600 eggs hatched. I also hatched some eggs for my Mawile hunt in SS, but got nothing out of it.

    I decided to put the Bulbasaur SR hunt on hold at 14,100 SR's and my Mawile hunt at 480 eggs, to SR for Groudon in SS. Currently at 115 SR's, which is going by very quickly since I am using a rubber band for the first time.

    So I've been lurking this thread for sometime while hunting for shinies of my own. Normally not a habitual Shiny hunter, I only hunt when I feel like it or when my friend makes a competition of it -like now-. The current competition is to see who finds 10 shinies first, all methods except chaining are allowed and I thought I would share my results to make this less dull.

    currently
    My friend:4/10
    Me:2/10


    My First shiny was obtained via MMing a couple months ago. At first I was just hatching Tynamo eggs while browsing internet (not paying attention) one of my Tynamos was slightly blue...er than the rest.I didn't realize it at first and it took 3 days for me to notice that I got a shiny Tynamo. I only realized by looking at my pokedex (thank goodness for that new feature) I would have released it without noticing. Its Adamant so its not too bad



    My second shiny I just got today while reading this thread. I also MMed it and it took 3871 eggs to finally get my shiny Kabuto ( 4 grueling weeks)! I had to do a double take just to make sure the fatigue wasn't getting to me but it is most definitely real! Its bold but I stopped caring once the hunt exceeded 3000 eggs. This is my longest MM hunt and I feel incredibly accomplished I would like to believe that I am the first one on this forum to have a shiny Kabuto but I know I'm not.......A man can dream can't he ;_;
    its Iv's are as followed

    ATK:0-28
    DEF:0-19
    SPATK:1-27

    Man, all these new shinies are getting me really excited though I'll admit all the low numbers are also making me really jealous! Congrats to everyone (there's a lot so won't list them all) but especially the Shellders - two in under 350 eggs? Amazing!

    Also regarding the putting hunts on hold, if I did end up doing that I would probably still count them as I too wouldn't want my effort to not be counted but I do try not to let that happen. Like at the moment, I reaaaally want to train up some of my other shinies or evolve some stuff for my Pokedex or even try REing but I'm not letting myself because I'm trying to make sure my Ponyta numbers are correct. It's really, really annoying but kind of good at spurring me on - even if I lose interest I tell myself I can't do anything else until the hunt is over and then I can force myself to hatch more eggs.

    I'm at 12,834 Starters Seen and ~4,240 SRs. I haven't gone over the odds in SR terms, but I hope I get my shiny soon.
    I don't know what I should do next after my hunt. I would like to go for a badge quest, but the nostalgia of the game wants me to play through it regardless...

    Anyways, I have two new targets for the future, in the form of:



    SRing for both once I buy HeartGold...

    Just doing an update of my Giant Chasm hunt. Made it up to 10,779 total encounters last night. Still no shiny. I swear the next Clefairy I see will be kicked back to wherever the #@$% it came from! They are starting to mock me, I know it! Anyways, I hope I have some luck come by me soon!

    I have boxed up 210 Tauros eggs (that's the maximum I can do with the space I have), so I hope it shines soon! If I only had half the luck Andyhaj had with Shelder...

    Since I grabbed a Nosepass on one of my rare visits to the Icy Cave in the Dream World, I liked its ability (Sand Force) and decided to breed for a shiny with good IVs. I was aiming for Sassy Nature and Sand Force. It took a while, but I just got a shiny. I missed the pivotal moment because I was browsing forums and using the Dream World. -_- ... it's Jolly and has Magnet Pull. ^_^; I'll probably keep going, though I want to take a break badly.

    Will add the egg count once the TV in Black/White cycles around to personal stats. I really hate waiting for the TV.

    edit: 331 eggs, though it felt like much more.

    Good luck, in all fairness.

    Holy crap, almost given a scare! Thought I'd skipped over a shiny Chikorita...

    660 eggs for treecko now, back to boxing up eggs, really hope it shines this week, preferably before 1000 eggs. Good luck and congrats to everyone chasing the elusive critters. @Aquaregisteel Dont give up on your starter hunt, ive been watching your hunt from the start and to quit would just be stupid it will shine, just dont think that you've missed it, any way which starter would you prefer? and dan i hope ratata shines for you, you should be due a short hunt after slugma. Also every time i think of quitting a mm i think of your slugma hunt.

    Wow guys! Congrats on all the new shinies!!!

    There's nothing that motivates me more to finish my MM hunt than seeing a bunch of other, successful hunts!

    I'm up to 700 eggs hatched, moving forward to 800 now in my mystery hunt. let's hope we see something soon! So many shinies - congrats to ALL!

    I hatched the rest of the Shellder eggs, but none of them were shiny. I can't complain, I guess

    Here are the pictures I promised:
        Spoiler:- Shellder pics:


    I'm thinking of keeping the Relaxed Shellder as it is, and train and evolve the Naughty Shellder. Then I'll have one of each

    Now I'm starting off with a new hunt, shiny Carvanha. Knowing my luck, I won't get it in a month or two...
