    Yes, right before you choose it from Bianca.

    I have a question, what's the best nature for Skorpi?
    I'm hunting it in the new town and I'm really hoping I either get it or Diblifm (I suck at names :/)
    I have about a hundred something REs, I really hope I get it.
    Wish me luck... hope your hunts go well too.

    My wishes to those in the areas affected by Hurricane Sandy.
    I have family on the coast so it bothers me greatly, worst, family where Sandy is going across land.

    Careful if going defensive, Jolly if going offensive.

    Almost 2/3 of the way to getting my shiny charm, some pokemon gave me a lot of trouble (I'm looking at you Politoed and Togetic)

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    I'm still trying to get a Shiny Cyndaquil with Matsuda Method, but after 300 eggs I've got no luck

    I'll hatch a few more and then I'll stop for a while because I have some breeding to do, but I'm going to get that shiny!

    I named her 'NeonShine' since these pictures, so happy i finally got my favorite shiny this generation-still can't believe she has the same nature as Venipede #1 though (sassy) x3

    Now i'm hoping to go for either a Trapinch or a Spinarak. But probably just going to concentrate on Black 2 for now (when i get it later this week).



    Nice shiny! Congratulations!
    Thanks and congrats to you to, I wish you luck getting that spinarak or trapinch, does anyone else have the shiny charm if so, have you gotten a shiny with it yet, I've had dry luck since I got it -_-

    Was hunting for a Swablu when I ran across a shiny Mienfoo. She has Regenerator and Gentle nature (which isn't ideal but isn't horrible), so I think she's just taken the sixth spot on my team. :'3

    Oh. My. God. After 2067 SRs without the Shiny Charm and 761 with it, I just got a Shiny Cobalion. I wasn't even paying attention when it appeared. I looked down to see if I had to reset and it took me a second to register what it was. I ended up catching it in a Timer Ball with it Paralyzed and in the Yellow. I just checked its nature and characteristic. Its Adamant and Hates to Lose. It doesn't matter to me. I'm just ecstatic that my first SR hunt managed to be successful after a mere 2828 resets. In all honesty, I'm just in utter shock. I started this hunt on the 14th as a way of celebrating beating the Elite Four. I then took a break to get the Shiny Charm a week later, and got it on Sunday.

    I might post pictures later. Didn't get any it when it was wild. I was just too shocked to do anything but catch it. And yes, I just totally copied and pasted my post from the GPD Shiny Thread.

    *deep breath* Okay....so finally I'm off school, and I do not intend to let this free time go wasted. I already mamaged to do 3 hours today (wich is a lot for me) and I still have the whole night (it's only about midnight here). I'm planning to get at least another two hours in before calling it a day.

    At first i was meaning to hatch a shiny Trapinch/Spinarak...but then i changed my mind to Zorua instead and i'm so glad i did!
    My third Masuda Method shiny (second if you count my two Venipede's as one); hatched after just 316 Zorua eggs (1,500 if i include the other eggs i've been hatching with no luck), born on the 2cnd November 2012 (today) around 16:20pm, it's been just under two weeks (two weeks tomorrow) since i got my last Masuda Method shiny (20th October-Shiny Venipede, now a Scolipede on the previous page) so i'm quite shocked at how fast this one came-and the Everstone worked this time so it's Naive (makes up for the failed two shiny Venipede natures i got before this one) AND she's a GIRL! I feel so lucky right now. it's funny because i saw a rainbow before and i wished on it to get my shiny today and it clearly listened, lol not really but you know what i mean ^.^
    IV's are:
    HP: 11
    Attack: 20
    Defense: 0 (!)
    Special Attack: 23 (yay!)
    Special Defense: 27 (uhm...but she has a - Sp Defense nature? makes no sense but whatever x3)
    Speed: 17 ...okay i guess x3
    Admittedly not that great, but i'm happy all the same. I hope my luck rubs off on some of you with your shinies and congratulations to all who've recently got shinies ^.^
    Probably going to try to Masuda Method Sigilyph (the original first Masuda Method shiny i wanted which i never got and instead it wound up being Venipede#1) once again or maybe try Finneon-which one should i do out of the two? Any ideas? x3

    I've hatched another 100 eggs on my Shiny Pichu Masuda Method hunt. I probably could've hatched more if I tried, but I'm busy with some other games, so this Shiny hunt isn't my biggest priority right now. I'm just doing this for fun. I may have to postpone it at some point though, just for a few weeks since my oldest DS is broken and all I have is a used DS Lite that looks like it might also break soon, meaning that I won't be able to play Black/White. In the meantime, I'll just try and hatch as many Pichu eggs as I can on Skyarrow Bridge.

    hey, not played pokemon in a little while but i just got white 2 a couple of days ago and i'm trying to get the shiny charm. I was just wondering how long it took anybody who has completed the pokedex (not necessarily on the second versions of black and white) to do so. I'm sort of approaching it with the method of speeding through the gyms and pokemon league, then dealing with catching everything afterwards when i have high level pokemon and its easier to train etc. although im only on the 8th gym so its going okay. Also take into account for the pokedex completion that i wont have any problems with the unobtainable or event ones. thank you in advance
    I have many event pokemon and over 300 shiny pokemon, pm me if you are interested in a trade

    I had been playing white 2 since it came out and I just got the charm 5 days ago I needed about 5 trades from people here, unless you have all the pokemon you need for the dex on 1 game it will take you awhile, I had mine spread across about 5 games

    I've been working on getting it since it came out. I have over 500 Pokemon right now and I used the GTS to get a lot of things I need/needed. I also have been using Sapphire, LeafGreen, Platinum, and HeartGold but because of the limit of 6 Pokemon per day with the Gen III to IV games it's taking a bit that way as well. I've never caught Pokemon for the sake on catching them since my first Pearl playthrough and that's because I was curious about the new generation. Now the shiny charm is making me wish I kept on doing that and didn't loose three of my games. My biggest tip would be to use Join Avenue's food place and hair place to boost friendship on pokemon who evolve that way, your time getting them won't be so hard if you use that and Bianca's friendship checker.

    Thinking about Alpha Sapphire:

    I had a VERY lucky day which is not normal for me. Before today, I got 2 shinies in my 8+ years of playing Pokemon. A Mienshao in Pokemon Black and a Totodile in Heart Gold. But today, I decided to go back to the Heart Gold file where I got my Totodile and play a bit, 3rd pokemon I run into is a Shiny Zubat in Union Cave. I only had a Poke Ball and Great Ball on me but managed to catch it! 12 Hours later I am playing Pokemon Black 2 trying to complete the Unova Dex and I run into a Shiny Shelmet Pretty freaking happy!
