    you ARE on the first page, with Regice
    or did you mean you want to do it every month?

    If I ever finish my essay, I'll probably continue my Mesprit hunt.

    MMing for a shiny Trapinch, I have 90 eggs at the moment.
    And random encounter hunting for a Litwick.

    I fill a box with eggs and then run around in the tower for about 45 -60 minutes

    Latest shiny was a Shiny Eevee I got breeding for a modest female.

    Alright, since this is a new thread I will be explaining how I got all of my shiny's.



    While fishing for a Feebas (Fishing 5 times on every spot) I ran into a Shiny Carvana, a few spots later I ran into another one.
    The first one was a male, and the second one was a female. I evolved the male into a sharpedo, and kept the female as a Carvana.

    When I completed everything in Diamond I learned about chaining, it took me a few weeks to understand. Finally at chain 40 I was able to get
    a male and a female Chattot. (Traded one away for a Manaphy.)

    And just a few months ago, I needed a Vulpix out of my girlfriend her SoulSilver, and ran into a Shiny Stantler. Caught it with a masterball because she
    didn't had any other Pokéballs. She said I could have it, but I only like my own shiny's with my name on it.

    Now I'm currently triple hunting.

    I'm hunting at the Giant Chasm Plains for shiny Delibird, Ditto, Piloswine or Metang. (Especially Metang) (Black 2)

    I'm doing the Masuda Method for a shiny Taillow, I really love a green Swellow. (Black 2)

    And I'm Soft Reseting for a shiny Lapras, I love that purple colour on him! (Soul Silver)


    After every 1000 random encounters I will be doing 100 eggs, after the eggs I will be doing 100 soft resets.
    I do multiple hunts because I hate to do the same thing all over again.

    I have the shiny charm, so I hope that the 2 above hunts won't take any longer.



    That's it, I wish all of you alot of luck hunting!

    Oooh, look, new shiny thread.

    I'm still hunting for my 3rd White 2 badge quest shiny. I'm currently at 5687 encounters. I'm hunting in the Castelia city 'park" (or whatever it's called) I'm hoping for anything other than a shiny Rattata or Audino (since I already have them ).

    Good luck guys.

    I did 15 REs of Eevee this morning (16 if you count the double encounter). That's probably all I'll get done today, since I really need to focus on my research paper.

    That's right, in all the games except HG/SS you need to go into battle before seeing if your starter is shiny

    Yes, a general factoid list on the front page, now how many noobs will ignore and still post the same questions over and over? Got to 1400 encounters in my nature preserve/victory road hunt. Though i did get black ops II, which will dominate my gaming for the foreseeable future, so i might only do 100-200 encounters a day for a couple weeks

    Getting to around 2,000 encounters in Chargestone Cave, it's slow going because I'm using Static. Really want that shiny Tynamo!

    If you don't get tynamo in chargestone, you should try again once you get to seaside cave in your BQ

    This. In its entirety. I want Kyogre to shine soon! Last night I made it up to 7,250 SRs and now I have done a few hundred today. One of my classes got cancelled, so I am replacing class time with Kyogre time. (Not a smart idea, but it makes me happy ) Good luck everyone and I hope that y'all are having better luck than I am!

    Maybe, there are just so many shinies that I want that it would be hard to fit it in, so hopefully I get it during this hunt. =P Actually Seaside Cave might be the better place to find a Tynamo since it's the only electric type in that area.

    That and it shows actually how many and what was gotten. I am praying that my name gets thrown up there at least 2 more times this month (I'm looking at you Kyogre! And then at you Rayquaza!!!) Really good job. :3

    Unfortunately, I think that's your best bet until you defeat the E4 the first time. Once the daycare is unlocked, Masuda Method would be faster and when you complete the National Dex you can get the Shining Charm to improve your odds even further.

    Added some announcements to the first post. I think I'll leave it at that for a while and see how the thread goes =)
    Now, back to SRing Mesprit
