    ok, i've beat the elite 4 and im now just travelling around to get every area of the region open to me. I've traded over my false swipe scizor so pretty soon im going to start catching as many pokemon as i can to complete this pokedex. The only thing i can see that will hold me back a little is if i have to evolve any through happiness.

    so i cannot thank you enough for this aha
    Also i think levelling the pokemon up wont be too difficult as there are so many high level wild pokemon and trainers around, i honestly didnt expect them to be this high so thats a bonus.
    anyways, i'll be keeping you updated on how it goes

    EDIT: pokemon with 5% rarity are slowing me down big time styley, took me over an hour to find a riolu. -_-

    Not having much luck with shinies in any of my games. I've been dual SRing for shiny Oshawott in my two copies of Black 2, but I have gone past 16k SRs without a shiny to show for it. I haven't had a 1/8192 shiny since March, so I'm having a huge shiny slump. I have also been playing though White 2 in hopes of running into a random shiny too. I don't have a specific target in that game, so any shiny would do .

    Hmm just a quick question i thought of; if a Japanese Pokemon is traded onto an English game and the Japanese Pokemon learns a new move on the English game-would the Japanese Pokemon still be Japanese?
    I love fire and electric types, hence my username!

    Current soft reset targets: None

    Current chaining targets (Platinum): and

    Current random encounter targets (soulsilver badge quest-Route 32): over 300 encounters so far

    Current Masuda Method hunt/s: (150 eggs so far)

    Most recent shiny (White-MM): (16th April 2013) after 65 Venipede eggs and 185 eggs in total

    Haven't posted here in awhile! I've been dual hunting for my shiny badge quest on Black 2 and Relic Castle on White and after 13,573 encounters my hunt in Relic Castle finally ends! :]



    I used a Relaxed sync but it failed so it ended up with a adamant nature which doesn't bother me too much I'm just glad I finally got it! Gratz on any recent shinies and good luck!

    Yeah there is. I believe it picks you up to 3/8192 but I could be wrong. You get it for completing the national dex.

    Okay......so... got two hours in today, three more to go. Better set up the youtube playlist for my shiny hunts xD

    Btw, I was wondering what you guys do usually while you hunt?
    Also, good luck to everyone. Patience is the key!

    Well, with my first two hunts, I was watching Stargate SG-1 in the middle of the night and was randomly SRing on my HG for my third hunt.
    My fourth hunt I was reading Memebase and looking at a shiny hunter's recent video of the same shiny I was looking for.


    .... I HATE trading and memorizing what Pokemon I still need.
    I have 552 Pokemon in the National Dex and still more to collect besides the events and 285 for Unova.

    Yeah and its not that easy to get and seems pointless even though I have it, I just started looking for shinies again and it doesnt help much, I haven't found any even though the day before I got the charm I found my first shiny in giant chasm's cave

    Congrats everyone on their recent shinies, still no luck with Landorus

    Off-Topic: Is this a good IV spread for a Modest Natured Landorus taking into consideration that this is the best I got after ~120 resets?

    It's not gonna make it a shiny in the first 100 encounters it's around 2000? Better than 8000. You can't really notice the difference until you get really high. Most shinies will probably be right around that 2000 mark. Just be patient.

    Just got my Oval Charm, though it's not worth noting, I was expecting every fifty steps I'd get an egg but nothing like that.
    All that constant trading and training, now I can try to get my second shiny on my White 2, if only it'd shine already.
    Best of luck.

    Does anyone else get mad at N's pokemon while walking around? I keep seeing them shine and for a second my heart beats faster but then I realize they aren't shiny and feel sad lol.

    As soon as I get the shiny charm, I'm going to SR for the Musketeer Trio on two nintendos.

    By the way, I'm looking for this Adamant Riolu in Flocessy Ranch, I'm not going foward in the game until I find one (this is on hard mode). I'm starting to think the chances of finding a shiny are better. So I'll tell you if I find one.

    My half-week off school is over...just about to go to sleep. I'm kind of disappointed, even though I know I shouldn't be. I know I'm just at the beginning (only 2200 Tepigs? Really? T-T) but I guess deep down I kinda hoped that it was going to shine this week end...

    Oh well. I'll get back to it tomorrow, even though I'm gonna have to return at a 2 hour per day routine. Hopefully I'll find it by christmas. And even if I don't, I'll have anpother load of free time at christmas break so I'm bound to get my Tepig before the end of the year

    So I was on Route 4, right? I had my Synchronize Adamant Abra out and was combing the sand. This was in Black 2, where I have my Shiny Charm, by the way. And then, about 20 or so encounters in, I see something, and all I keep thinking is, "Pink. That Darumaka is pink." And then the sparkles triggered a dance of victory and celebration. One Quick Ball later, and she was MINE! And the Adamant Synchronizer worked, too!

    Just because it drops the odds of finding a shiny doesn't mean that you will find a shiny. You could do 2000 SRs and it's still a 1 in 2000-something chance.
