    Either way is still boosts it way too much for my liking and I actually own the charm as well haha.

    Done a bit of SR'ing today but had work for 10 hours so been pretty busy. Will do a few more before bed.

    Happy birthday to TheMaster and Kitty!

    Is there a way to disable the charm from working? I always thought it'd be nice to maybe one day collect all the pokemon but not end up using the charm. Does it have to be equipped to a pokemon or something to work?

    It's a key item that stays in your bag, so you can't disable it. it *might* be possible to trash it. Not sure if they let you trash key items though

    Thank you all for the birthday wishes! Unfortunately it didn't translate into a birthday shiny for me, and I'm now at 6,000 encounters in Relic Castle... Still, day off tomorrow, so we'll see what happens then...

    Yep. Me neither. After my exam and much sadness and tears shed, i left college and 2 of my best friends. I am now a 22 year old college graduate hunting a shiny...... Not telling. anyways, i got basically nowhere with this hunt today, but i am working on it now in the comfort of my bed at home.

    Happy hunting everyone, congrats on the recent shinies, thank you for the birthday wishes! I will succeed in this community hunt. I will i say!

    Oh, and random comment: my 2 best friends from school (which were my roommates too) got me a Pachirisu plushy for my birthday! I about died with happiness! :3

    That's just plain awesome that you have such great friends! Now I can only imagine your reaction if there was a shiny plushy for you.

    And I've been switching between my two RE hunts right now, and have decided to switch off every 1000 RE's, so now that I have 1100 RE's for Baltoy, I'm in Route 207 at 570 RE's, still hoping for a Ponyta. Geodude is great too, but if I have to get one of those, I'd rather it be on one of the many routes later in the game that it's found. And Machop, I really have a strong dislike for him, though maybe a shiny one would help me appreciate him more. All considered, I'm happy with any shiny here, even Kricketot. Meanwhile, Articuno continues to not shine, though as long as it shines before I leave for vacation after finals, I can count it for the CH. Meanwhile, good luck on those hunts everyone!

    Just thought I'd say that key items can indeed not be disabled. Other than that I haven't been hunting this week, but I'm going to NYC saturday and I'll hunt on the train. Congrats and good luck to all!

    Alright, thanks Danger and Charizard. Not too disappointed since completing the national dex was never an objective of mine, but options are always nice anyways Oh well.

    Started out with 50 REs this morning before work...Have yet to do more, despite being home for 5 hours now and I didn't even work on my project. I did spend 2 hours after dinner trying to figure out how to get the video I made last week onto my 3DS XL. Figured it out and got in on there, so now I have ~1-2 hours left to hunt...Probably won't end up with many more REs though.

    Still, despite only doing a few REs each day, and so far, never having done more than 200 REs on any day, it's rewarding and encouraging to see that I'm approaching 1500 REs...Even though it's far away from reaching the odds of a shiny, it's still more than 1/8 of the way there. And I figure if I could do it once, I can do it 8 times, right?

    Good luck on everyone's hunts! And happy birthday to the 2 birthday people (possibly belated at this point :x). Hope everyone's getting over sicknesses and dealing with health issues alright.

    Seviper is an awesome shiny, it was my first in White.

    I'm thinking on reclaiming that shiny Rattata I lost when I accidentally restarted my LeafGreen game. Aside from that, I'm not sure who I should hunt for next.

    I do have a shiny Eevee, I'm planning on evolving him, but I haven't decided which Eeveelution's shiny form I prefer.

    Finished hatching Charmander eggs today leaving me at 220. Still not a huge amount, but if I can do 220 in less than a week then I feel confident I'll get it eventually! Should be moving onto Snover now, but think tomorrow will be spent RE at Village Bridge for Marill and training my new Alakazam on my SS nuzlocke in preperation for Chuck. Might try and squeeze in a box or 2 of eggs though to hatch at a later date! Gotta release 220 Charmanders and 30 Sentrets first... Oh dear! I wish you could multi-release Pokémon!

    Curious question while I'm here: What's everyones shortest shiny hunt (meaning you were looking for a shiny) with any method?
    I got really lucky with Cyndaquil on my Japanese HG, 10 SR and he was brown! Chikorita wasn't so quick, but still only took me about 100 SR, my 2nd shortest hunt, but sadly I lost count so don't know exactly. Still, I know I got lucky and I'm prepared for my SS BQ next year to take a lot longer, or maybe I'll get lucky a third time?

    Anyways, good luck everyone and congrats to everyone with new shinies, especially jealous of the yellow Grumpig Dylz got, one of my favourite shinies! I'll probably look for one during my Black 2 BQ after Xmas!

    My shortest hunt was my Rayquaza. I spent two weeks resetting on it and there it was. Groudon is the longest I've spent hunting anything specifically, somewhere between three and four months of near continuous resetting.

    My quickest hunt was Clefairy at the Giant Chasm, 77 RE. Oddly enough, that was straight after randomly getting my first shiny, Raticate. Currently waiting for my pikachu 3ds to come so I can get trading for my shiny charm. Dual resetting here I come!

    Soon I'll have you, after years and years XD

    Happy belated birthday to Kitty and The Master; sorry you didn't get any birthday shinies. Congrats to all the new shinies that have been found recently though. ^_^

    I'm now at 2802 encounters for my next White 2 badge quest shiny, and 17,200 encounter for my next Heart Gold badge quest shiny. I think the HG one is striving to become one of my longest hunts...


    Curious question while I'm here: What's everyones shortest shiny hunt (meaning you were looking for a shiny) with any method?

    RE: Shiny Metapod in Heart Gold - 40 encounters
    SR: Shiny Ho-oh in Heart Gold - 145 soft resets (I also found a shiny Cyndaquil in SS after only 68 SR, but since you see three at a time that technically counts as 204 SR)
    MM: Shiny Piplup in Pearl - 83 eggs

    Good luck everybody! n_n

    Well, my two quickest RE hunts took the same amount of REs! 150 to be exact.

    My quickest SR hunt was my Chikorita, which took 5,184...the only one I've completed though. As for my longest hunt, Chikorita stands as the longest one. However, I did do a combined total of 16,816 REs and HBs before abandoning my SS Badge Quest, so I didn't succeed.

    Meanwhile, I managed a decent SR number, so I am at 4,775 SRs for Lugia, and 2,840 REs for Platinum BQ #1...good luck to all!

    Up to 400 SR's for Shiny Kyurem in Black 2. Just to make sure the one that you see in the Giant Chasm after the main game can be shiny, right?

    Oh trust me... they tried. There were just no shiny Pachirisu to be found. but I love the one I got anyways. I love Pachirisu so much. I actually am going to see if my fiance can chain me 5 more one day (he got me the one I have now and she is perfect!)

    As for my community mm hunt, I will be working on it mostly all day. I am basically now just sitting around waiting for final grades and a potential phone call or email for an interview for a job..
