    So I thought I would try successfully MM'ing my shiny Tepig in time for B/W 2. I was at 1000 eggs even when I started today, and was going to go up to 1150 today, and then do 150 every couple days until the 7th.

    However, on egg 1105, the poke gods finally decided to end my long pursuit. When I saw that yellow Tepig, it gave me a feeling that I haven't felt since finding my first wild shiny. This was my first real MM attempt. I'm going to MM something else, but I doubt it'll feel the same.

    It's a male with an adamant nature. It's IV's are 31/30/16/31/31/00.

    Happy camper right now lol.

    Been awhile since I last posted here, currently saved in front of Cobalion, trying for good nature at the moment, but will take a shiny if I get it, only shiny I have in Black is Swadloon, trying to get a Leavanny but damn thing won't evolve.

    Terrakion isn't giving me the nature I want at the moment, so I'll give that a rest and start going after shiny Mew.

    Old Sea Map on Emerald, may not be a 100% legit Shiny, since Old Sea Map is impossible to get in non-japanese games, but method of catching and the Mew itself will be legit and un-touched by cheat devices.

    Currently at ~200 resets.

    I hope you have an early shiny frame, otherwise you're kind of wasting your time.

    Actually, it is even harder than that I'm afraid. Emerald seeds the game with the same seed each time, every time. What this means is, if you are just SRing for a shiny Mew, you are wasting your time and you will never get it. Since the game starts at the same point, you would need to wait different amounts of time, each time, to get a different result. If you do not have a shiny frame that is within the time you take to SR, you will never get a shiny Mew. If you are truly serious about this though, all you have to do is wait different amounts of time before you encounter Mew and the game will give you different results. Good Luck though. As Pingouin pointed out, your first shiny frame could be days into the game.

    This is interestingly, new information, I was unaware of this, I just assumed it would be like any other shiny and could just SR continuously till I got a result, thanks for sharing, I'll give up on it for now, might as well go back to Black and finish the game so I can trade a Ditto over and start breeding.

    Don't give up on it so fast, and this thread has been real slow and quiet these past few days

    510 eggs so far. Trivia: apparently it becomes statistically favorable (aka, over 50%) that the entire set of eggs has one shiny at 947 eggs or more.

    I'm going for Taillow if/when this ends.

    I got my first shiny of Gen V (I've previously gotten two random encounters in Gen IV being a snesel and machoke) and I couldn't be happier about it. I'd like to say my shiny was also random but it technically wasn't. I was breeding a male litwick with a ditto to try and get a modest or timid one with flame body for Black 2 recently. I don't know how many eggs I hatched but I'd say less than 75, but when I turned away while one egg was hatching I didn't get to fully witness the hatching of my happiness. I saw this:

    If I didn't have a sore throat that day I probably would have shouted in joy. At the moment I didn't really think about how the litwick was being bred. I thought there was a 1 in 8192 chance for me to get a shiny pokemon. I later found out I was using my Japanese ditto and the idea that Lumiere's shininess was completely random shattered. Yeah I unintentionally used the Masuda Method. I'm just glad that I didn't have to hatch a ton before getting one. I'm now going to use it for my Black 2 team which is a challenge team with friends where we all use the same Pokemon. I almost decided not to breed litwick and just catch one, I'm glad I didn't now.

    Congrats BunniBear4, IMO Litwick and it's evolutions are some of the more cooler-looking Gen V shinies, did it have the nature you wanted?

    Still no luck with Seviper or Zangoose.

    No, it was docile. It has the ability I wanted so it was okay. I also agree, if I didn't get it by accident I could see myself trying to get a shiny litwick eventually. Other shinies from Gen V I could see myself trying to get are Emboar, Levanny, Golurk, and Haxorus (it being so easy to get in Black 2 will save so much time). I personally think the worst Gen V shiny is Krookodile because of the eyes.

    Also good luck on your Serviper/Zangoose hunt! They're two of my favorite Gen III shinnies.

    I was trying to breed a shiny Rufflet when I accidentally placed my starter Samurott in the Day Care instead of Braviary... I hadn't realized it until the first (and only) egg hatched in a shiny Oshawott This was my first time ever being so lucky to get a shiny by myself. I also got a shiny Rufflet a few days later, with about 60 eggs hatched..
    I just recently I found my first shiny Pokemon in the wild: a Trubbish!

    Ahh i see, well don't give up! You'll get him in the end and then all the time will be worth it ^^
    I've hatched 859 Venipede eggs so far still attempting to get an adamant nature...so far no other shiny, so i decided to do a MM for Cyndaquil and Sigilyph (my original target) alongside it so it doesn't get too boring ^^
    I'll try to hatch four boxes of each one, alternating between them and one will come sooner or later

    Congratulations to all people who've got new shinies as of late!! ^^
