    I don't think I'll hunt in the sewers, as I already have a shiny Crobat... But what do you guys think with regards to the other options?

    Oh, and congrats on the Kyogre, Kitty! That was a long time coming!
    I would go with Route 4.

    Good call, City. Although I do tend to turn off after hunting to keep my game time low... Time to get me a shiny Roggenrola! (hopefully not Onix, as I already have shiny Steelix)

    Oh, and am i crazy for already starting my dual rayquaza hunt after that terrible hunt i just went through? It will be more leisurely because i am now on Thanksgiving break and i have to write some papers. Once this hunt is complete, the shiny charm will be mine on white 2!

    Happy hunting everyone!
    Congrats on that Kyogre, and I'm glad it didn't go much longer than that. Unless you pass my SR count for Rayquaza, you have plenty of motivation for it, I think. Good luck!

    And an update for my hunt, I'm now at 1476 RE's, so I'm looking at a more normal amount of counts than my last few hunts. And I don't know exactly when I'll start, but I'm taking motivation from all these BQ's to start one myself in Platinum. It sounds like a lot of fun, so I'll be giving it a shot myself. I'm not sure if I'll wait until I finish Chargestone Cave or not, but it's out there. For now, though, good luck on those hunts, everyone!

    Oh, of course! Nothing can stop you from hunting shinies with our community. Just make sure you're familiar with everything discussed in the first post, choose a pokemon to hunt, and start! All you need is time and patience, and you can hunt for just about any shiny.

    Well... holycrap.
    I just happened to get a shiny Torchic when I started up my Sapphire version a second ago. This is the first time I've ever gotten a shiny starter before... It is very hard to absorb this pleasant surprise right now ;w; /dies

    Congrats to all those who got shinies recently, especially the people who have gone through thousands of resets (I don't know how you do it without killing your wrists!) or thousands of eggs.

    To those who have mentioned how little they want a shiny audino... oh, how I'd love to have a pretty purple audino! I try to hit every shaking grass patch that I can in hopes of getting one, yet I have had no luck yet, not even with my shiny charm in White 2.

    My longest uninterrupted (no turning off the power, no going online) MM egg hunt so far involved a couple thousand oshawott eggs in White. I no longer have the exact number because I tossed the paper on which I was jotting down how many eggs I deleted. I gave up somewhere in the 2500 range (maybe a week and a half of attempted breeding) and never got my shiny oshawott. I might try again later. I also chucked a couple thousand snivy eggs before I tried the uninterrupted batch of 990 which got me the shiny snivy.

    And as for playing games while driving... good grief! Thank goodness you didn't get into an accident while doing that! I really hope it was at least at a complete stop. It's terrifying enough to see other drivers using their cellphones while driving.

    As for my current hunt, I'm only 255 pachirisu eggs in, but I have gone online with the game (doing Dream World and GTS) and turned it off a few times in the interim, so it's not an uninterrupted breeding session. Maybe I should go back to uninterrupted breeding for this, since it seemed to work with snivy. It should be possible to breed a serious-natured shiny pachirisu with volt absorb from an American serious-natured mother with volt absorb who is also holding an everstone and a French father eevee, right?

    Congrats on all the latest shinies! Seems a lot of you have gotten out of some persistent hunts these past few days. Good luck to everyone's hunts!

    I finally got to hunt again for real this time. Did 135 Eevee REs today, bringing my total to 600. Still have a long way to go. And I still have another Research Paper to start as soon as I figure out a topic...This one will be much more difficult than the previous one - much more restrictions, much less familiar area of study....So I imagine this one will take even more hunting time away from me.

    I also got sidetracked tonight changing colors of certain shinies...Decided to see what my shiny Litwick SHOULD look like when fully evolved...And decided to play around with Umbreon's shiny colors a bit. Overall: An interesting way for me to waste time and not get anything semi-productive done

    I'm.... speechless right now. I am just freaking out.

    I was getting a bit bored of SRing for Virizion, so I decided to restart my HG to SR for a starter. I wasn't really hunting seriously, not really doing it hardcore or anything. And yet, I got a shiny Totodile after only 239 SRs and 717 pokemon seen, who has an awesome nature (Naughty, +Att -SpD) and a possible 31 IV in Speed. Better yet, it was a FEMALE shiny Totodile.

    Here comes the real kicker; I GOT POKERUS WHILE JUST DOING SOME ENCOUNTERS TO SHOW OFF THE SHININESS.

    I feel like I've been way too lucky with all of my hunts, so my Virizion hunt will probably travel up to the twenty thousand or something. Anyway.

    Congratulations to all who have gotten shinies and I wish all of you the best of luck with all of your hunts~

    Up to 6,000 encounters now in nature preserve and victory road. Really hope i get one under the odds :|
    I only have one shiny from either place (fraxure) which is already evolved so really anything would be awesome.

    Really? Is nobody gonna talk about how messed up it is that someone was shiny hunting while driving?
    Not only are you endangering your own life, but that of everyone around you. All for alternatenly coloured pixels.
    Don't get me wrong, I love shinies, but I hear about people doing stuff like this as well as pulling "all nighters" (which is TERRIBLE for your health) and it really makes me shake my head.
    Your life and health and that of everyone around you are more important than a video game construct any day.

    Already got 1k Random Encounters since my double Clefairys yesterday. Hope this hunt won't take long too! Hoping for Solrock, Lunatone, Ditto, Delibird or Metang. (Delibird & Metang especially!)

    I got a total of 9.4k RE's on the Giant Chasm Plains

    Hey everyone! Congrats Ghostfoot on Torchic and KatePKE on Totodile! My totodile was also female when I SRed on SS. I was ecstatic! Also, congrats to anyone else who got a shiny that I may have missed. I had a dream last night that there were different forms of kyogre that I had to go through to get to rayquaza and 2 of those forms were shiny too... I think kyogre was starting to mess with my head. I'm just glad I finally got that thing.

    I managed to do 500 SRs yesterday for rayquaza. I'm glad that I can dual SR for him, it makes me feel like my chances are increased of finding him early (even though they aren't). Happy hunting everyone and good luck! I hope everyone gets their shinies soon! Especially the ones who were in my boat and close to or have gone over the odds!

    Hi guys. I'm now at 12,464 encounters for my 3rd White 2 badge quest shiny. So it's now the longest hunt in my badge quest so far... >.>

    It's also worth noting that a new level was added to the Dream World today, the "Dream Park" so there will be a load of new shiny Pokemon we can hatch for with their dream world abilities. I've played my sessions in Black and White today already, and so far I've found these Pokemon:

    Minun
    Snorlax
    Combee
    Shroomish
    Venonat
    Heracross
    Cherubi
    Slakoth
    Nincada
    Seedot
    Ekans
    Aipom
    Kricketot
    Pinsir
    Roselia
    Togepi
    Carnivine
    Wurmple
    Zangoose
    Gulpin
    Pineco
    Chansey
    Beedrill
    Eevee

    I took home a female Heracross and Chansey. But look at that guys; easy access to english dream world Eevee (the Eevee I found was female, too ^-^ ).

    hmmm, let's see. eevee is less interesting to me, as I've been breeding DW ones for a year, and I'm sad the Plusle and Minun still have the same abilities. they could have reversed them at least.
    I'm looking forward to shroomish and beedrill though. time to do more DW, as I'm missing a lot from Rugged Mountain and on

    hatched half my charmander eggs last night after I finished boxing them. No luck yet, but still 5 boxes to go through. *crosses fingers*

    I know =\

    But I already had a Shiny Mamoswine, and now some good news. 183 Random Encounters later I got myself a Shiny Ditto! My new record! I can't believe my shiny luck. :-D

    EDIT:

    - I really can't believe my shiny luck, if someone told this to me, I would call them a hacker. I guess my Shiny "Lucky" Charm is really helping.
    6 Shiny encounters in 5 days, Solrock Exploded and I ran away from a Piloswine. 4 Shiny's are obtained in luxury balls.

    I also edited my spoiler, instaid of text I made it a picture.

    ^ Ahh, you have the shiny charm. That would explain all those quick hunts, but gratz and sry about the Piloswine. You must have been pretty distracted to miss it though.

    Still hunting in Dreamyard, I'm at almost 3k encounters so far and Mandibuzz is still refusing to shine but I won't give up! Good luck everyone.
