Shiny Hoothoot guys!!!!! Right on NYE!!!!
Just on the SHU chat box with StormDragoon when sparkles flew! It's quirky natured too!
Thanks all, pics up soon, and Happy 2013!!
Current Hunt: Eterna Forest
Hey guys, its 2013!
So i'll review my 2012 in shinies!
The year started off in July with my failed attempt to find a shiny Zorua via MM, it only failed as I found a shiny Emolga on route 13.
Then I joined the forums to tell everyone about it. Then in late July the audiel started, my Treecko MM, which is my longest hunt to date which finally hatched in August at nearly 1600 eggs.
Then during the course of it, I encountered Roselia on platinum.
Following that a short Vulpix mm was due, and well received =D
A failed Johto Starter SR was followed by a nice 500 egg Riolu MM.
Following that came a few weeks of indescisive hunts. Then my 1500 egg Shroomish bananza brings us up to present and still no Shellder.
So Happy new year guys, and my shellder is at 630 eggs, would be cool if it shone tomorrow =D Gl!!!
Edit: Grats Aqua! 1st 2013 shiny (in ma timezone) and gl to master (I admire your patience) and everyone!

Hey guys! Happy New Year! Just passed 5,450 Ducklett... This thing is testing my patience now...
Congrats on the Hoothoot, AR!
Happy new year everybody! ^_^
Right on the stroke of the new year I got the final Pokemon in my Black 2 Pokedex (a Cradily) and received my shiny charm. I'll be interested in seeing how long it takes me to encounter a shiny with this thing...
As for my shiny hunts, I'm now at 22,000 encounters in my Heart Gold badge quest, just over 6000 encounters in my White 2 badge quest, and 2200 soft resets for shiny Thundiurus.
I plan on restarting Black today as well, so I can hunt for a shiny Tornadus in the future.
Good luck everybody. Let's see if anyone can get a new year's day shiny. n_n
Edit: ... after about five minutes of cycling around route 5 a shiny Gothita has just appeared. o.O Damn, that shiny charm works fast! Maybe I'll finally be able to get some live encounter shinies.
Edit 2: Here's the shiny Gothita video
I think I'm going to start breeding for another dream world shiny Eevee again - I did hatch a shiny Eevee in my Japanese Black before (after nearly 5000 eggs....) but it failed to get its DW ability.

Wow, congrats Helio! That was quick with the charm...
I will move on to REing Wooper in a bit, but Falkner must be beaten...
Current Hunt: Eterna Forest
... What the--? I just hatched a shiny Eevee in 11 eggs!! O__o
This shiny charm is amazing! I've seen people on here with their shiny charms still taking thousands of encounters/SR/eggs before getting a shiny. But I've probably done less than 50 encounters/eggs since I got it, and already found two.
I haven't bothered making a video of it, but the shiny Eevee is male, Jolly natured, and has its dream world ability! Yay! I'm looking forward to evolving it into a shiny Leafeon. Though I must admit that I am slightly worried about the possibility of constantly finding shinies this quickly from now on, it kind of makes them feel less special...
Congrats to all shiny getters!! That is some luck you got there Helio, what with 2 shinies so soon after the charm. That's insane luck even with the charm.
I can't figure out my next target. I've bounced everywhere from route 36 to dark cave. Originally I wanted a Nidoran, but now I kinda want a Zubat too, and I'm even thinking of soft reseting at the game corner for sandshrew... :s
Also, Thanks everyone for the gratz! I'm still shocked that I finished it before New Years lol. I haven't done any hunting since cause I've been working on getting the oval charm. It would be nice if I got a shiny while filling up the Unova dex but we'll see! Since its New Years Eve (and New Years for some people) How many shinies did you all get in 2012? If I counted right it seems I got 74 this year! Not bad not bad :] Maybe I'll go for 100+ next year lol. Good luck everyone!!

Speaking of long hunts, I wish my CH hunt will finally shine. It's almost 2013 here and I'm hatching eggs left and right.
450 eggs have been hatched now, I expect a couple of hundred more the way it's going.
Congrats to those who have gotten their hunts and wish those the best of 2013.
Happy new year guys! congrats to helio on the eevee and gothita also congrats to Aqua on that awesome hoothoot as for me no last shiny of the year but i hope to have a luckier year next year good luck everyone i hope and wish you all a lucky new year of fresh shiny hunts Im @ about 2500 for petilil

Hello guys !
Happy new year and I hope 2013 will be a nice year for all of you !
I decided what will I try for the CH : a Budew ^^
Wish me luck :P
And Congrats to all shinies since I last posted.

After nearly three months, I make my triumphant return! I just hatched a shiny Bulbasaur with only an hour and a half to go in the year.
Hatched it in 374 eggs. The nurseries were kind of a nuisance... it was Hatch Power +++ that brought me home. It's fantastic for pokemon with average hatch cycles. Stats are nothing to write home about, but that's okay. It has the nature I wanted, thanks to the 100% B/W2 Everstone guarantee.
Before that, I hatched about 1400 eggs worth of Chanseys and Lileeps with no success, not to mention failing to soft reset for a Registeel. I haven't been breeding as much lately- obtaining the shiny charm took a lot out of me and I've been playing other games.
I have a bunch of wants, but I'm considering shooting for a Munchlax next. With that and a Lapras, I would have a shiny version of Red's team.
edit: my breeding efforts are being hampered by the fact that Bulbapedia is apparently currently serving up malware. My anti-virus software blocked it. I'm less familiar with the Serebii pages so it'll take longer to dig up the info.

Happy New Years Guys! I know what I'm going for in the community hunt: an Azurill with Huge Power for my White 2 Badge Quest. I stored six boxes of eggs yesterday so now I'm going to go hatch them in Humilau City. Also Congrats Helio on your two very quick hunts! I have the Shiny Charm on my Black 2 which is where I'm hatching Azurill. Good lcuk everyone! =)
IIRC *Helen* yours as well, and that one is also in my Avenue running a Flower Shop (I don't know why did they named it that, it definitely looks more like a Berry Shop lol)
And even then it took me around 1000 SR and around 5 days of SR-ing.
Happy 2013 to everyone. I have got to get that darn Budew. I've had a shiny droguht ever since Cobalion and that was in September!

What is this I don't even.. Ok so today I hatched 100 Azurill then I got bored so I went to SR for a Shiny Johto Starter on my Soulsilver(which has never had a shiny) and SRing for Bulbsaur on my Firered at the same time while browsing the net. I see a normal Bulbsaur on Firered as expected and then I look back at my Soulsilver and see this:
http://s1063.beta.photobucket.com/us...ddf15.jpg.html Yep that's right! My favorite Johto starter in Shiny Form and one of my all time favorite shinies shone for me on the first day of the new year! Here's some more photo's!
Spoiler:- Shiny Chikorita!:
Needless to say I'm so freaking happy right now! ^_^^_^^_^^_^^_^ I called him Herb. And he's Adamant and Proud of his power so he'll be beastly in Attack. SRing is now offically my luckiest method: I've gotten three shinies, all starters(Snivy, Cyndaquill and Chikorita) with it and none of those hunts went over a week. I'm gonna play through Soul Silver with him as my only team member. Here's his IV's:
HP-0-9, Attack-15-26, Defense-8-19, Special Attack-2-14, Special Defense-0-7, Speed-10-22, which are pretty damn good. Was going to hatch Azurill tonight but now I'm gonna play through Soulsilver more with Herb.
EDIT: How can I get pictures to show up here instead of links?

I wish I could have some luck with my current Heart Gold badge quest hunt - I'm now at 22,100 encounters. And I'm at 6211 encounters in my White 2 BQ. As well as 2200 SR for a shiny Thundurus.
I've just restarted Black, and I plan on trading over a shiny team to use in my play through (including my new shiny Eevee). I'm also thinking of hatching for a shiny dream world ability Riolu (but I'll have to do a bit of IV-breeding first).
Good luck guys. Congrats on all the new shinies.
5,500 for Ducklett now... Aiming to hit 6k today... Unless it shines before then!

Love shiny pokemon! I only ever had one that I got myself legitimately... it was a flaafy in the original silver game. I have the shiny pichu from the event and a shiny dragonite which I found on a preowned copy of soulsilver... but I REALLY want a shiny charizard! Bred 200 ish so far, no success yet
Pokemon White friend code: 5287 0257 7680
I have Japanese ditto with various natures, and can breed most things, PM me for details.
Also have pokerus infected pokemon, thanks PanOne!
well phooey, no shiny for December after all
If one of these eggs I hatch today is shiny (still emptying the boxes), I will be very cross >: (
edit - no shinies in the boxes either. That makes 1,786 eggs hatched since my last shiny (with shiny charm). Hopefully the next batch will work out better. At least Smoochum can also apply to this months hunt

Got a golden Pidgey when searching for Raikou south of Ecruteak! So happy! Won't EV train it though; not very fit for competitive battling but just for fun.
Sent it to Black 2 and now she's a Pidgeot named Gael. I'm so proud of her
Wow. Alot of Shiny Chikorita's :3 I haven't done anything yet because I was very wasted last night and now trying to put myself together and start hunting Shiny Cyndaquil, when I finally have the Cyndaquil I will be trying a BQ. Ofcourse I'll dual hunt, so actually my black 2 will be recording the RE's. :-P :-)
