    Going to MM Happiny, or maybe just not do the CH because I just realized one of my favorite pokes who I've been raising is from Japan, so will more likely do a Ninetails/Vulpix MM. Stinks that Ninetails is pink though. I love fire types and it would be hard to pas up an easy MM like this. GL on your Cyndaquil Dylz, and Congratz on all of those recent shinies! Been seeing a lot of Chikorita's lately. Happy New Year!!

    I was trying to rush to hatch eggs in hopes it'll shine before 12 AM so it'll still count.
    However it passed 12 and no egg that hatched shine so my hunt epically failed,
    but I suppose I'll have a better chance this month. I'm starting a new hunt for the CH and hopefully I'll be lucky this time.

    May your newer hunts be successful.

    Hello everyone. I am just over 1500 RE's for a shiny on route 15 now. Hopefully something shines soon. I really want to join in on this Community hunt, it'll be my first one. I was thinking about going for a shiny Riolu. I was planning on MMing one anyway so maybe that or Chingling. Not too sure on any of the others to be honest as thier shiny forms don't impress me much. I may consider mime jr or bonsly as well though.

    Congratulations to all recent shinies gotten and Happy New Year to everyone.
    Shinies are good.

    Gratz to all, it seems Chikorita has decided to shine for many.
    I've narrowed it down to about 5 pokemon I need for the charm,
    so yes I should get it today, can't wait to start hunting again!

    Aw! Cool! Guessing it was a random encounter.

    So I'm not the only one who dreams of getting a shiny, I dream't once i lost a shiny Bayleef. They are realistic.

    OT: 90 Heatmor Eggs. Don't know about Floccesy, maybe around 80 REs? And 2 SRs on Latias, but I'm not gonna count them.

    ...

    I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I'M SMILING RIGHT NOW.

    Saaatoshi!

    I once fell asleep in class, I had just finished my work and had some free time so I closed my eyes.
    I dreamed I randomly found a shiny in a double battle, I couldn't remember the Pokemon but I saw the sparkles and in my head I was like 'Shiny!'
    and then I snapped out of my dream to find that it was time for class to switch.

    I hate dreams like that. Oh and dreams where my game messes up. On one instance, I dreamed that my Platinum was messed up and as soon as I got up and played I got a corrupted error and freaked. Then I did some search and luckily my game didn't delete itself (400 hours and 500+ down the drain) or had issues afterwards.

    I dreamed once that I had all my shinies on my SoulSilver file, and that a darn kid got hold of my cartridge and broke it. I woke up and was completely mindblown

    Hmm... I'm having a hard time trying to figure out which ability would be better for the shiny Munchlax I'm breeding- Thick Fat or Gluttony. Snorlax has high special def. so maybe it doesn't need the extra Fire/Water resistance. I'm not sure just how much sooner Gluttony kicks in than usual.

    edit: never mind, found it. 50% instead of the usual 25%. Might go nicely with Recycle.

    I see a lot of Chikoritas are deciding to shine! Congrats Cuchifru, RaichuArcanine and Dylz! I still treasure my shiny Meganium I got in 2010, she's my favourite shiny in my collection thus far despite Drifblim being my favourite Pokémon. Her colours + the fact I somehow managed to get female just can't be beaten yet! Maybe when I get Porygon-Z which has been a target for nearly 4 years now ;D
    Her names Hibiscus for anyone who likes hearing that kind of stuff, but I don't have natures or anything on hand sorry...

    And OF COURSE congrats on EVERY other shiny since my last post, I remember an Eevee, Pidgey, Gothita, Pawniyard and possibly a lot more. And good luck to everyone on their current hunts! Am I to expect many, many baby Pokémon?

    As for me, still working on the Shiny Charm for now. I miss shiny hunting but I haven't had time to squeeze in both yet, and I would like to get this Shiny Charm sooner rather than later!
    I've now got 504 obtained in my National Dex leaving me with 145 left to get! I should, as long as everything goes smoothly, be able to finish by the end of this week, hopefully!
    After that, I'm unsure if it'll be Shaymin or one of my badge quests... My boyfriend is SRing for Registeel so our Virbank Complex race with Shiny Charms is postphoned. And I was so excited too!

    Anyways, pointless update, but keeping track helps stay motivated and I love seeing people get my favourite Johto starter as a shiny XP
    Now if only I could get Totodile and finish off my trio. Hopefully I will for my eventual SS badge quest!

    Edit:

    I know! I didn't go into the game expecting to need event legends for anything, but I already have most. I think Jirachi, Celebi and Meloetta are the only ones I'm missing, and it's easier to just count every Pokémon since I do plan to eventually try and get those 3.
    Regardless, if it bothers anyone, just take 3 from my total, though I've been working hard since I posted and now I only have 133 (or 130) left to get, woo! ^w^

    Thanks for the congrats guys! I renamed him Herbie because it suits him better and he's now a Meganium. I've decided to stop my MM hunt for Azurill-partly because I need to get back to my White 2 Badge Quest in Floccesy Ranch where it has a chance to shine and I didn't have much enthusiasm for the hunt. I think SRing is my new favorite method of hunting-especially when dual hunting. I love dual hunting as doing two systems makes the hunts go faster. So, I'm currently returning to my White 2 Badge Quest RE hunt is Floccesy Ranch, hoping for Mareep, Azurill or Riolu and in Soul Silver I'll be doing a RE hunt for in Route 36 hoping for Nidoran M, Pidgey or Vulpix to shine. There's actually a bit of a story behind why I want Nidoran M to shine the most. I'll put it in a spoiler otherwise this post will be too long.
        Spoiler:- The Story:

    I've got an awesome all Shiny Team planned for Soulsilver too:Meganium, Umbreon, Nidoking/Pidgeot/Ninetales, Lapras, Lugia and Dragonair. As always good luck everyone!
    EDIT: just found out that another forum I'm on is having a CH to get Shiny Eevee, so the route 36 hunt is paused until I get it. This way I can dual SR on Heartgold for Totodile. Bill's Eevee can be shiny right?

    Congrats to all the recent shinies everyone. I've finally found my 3rd HG BQ shiny. I didn't even see it appear. I entered an encounter and then left the room to get a snack and I return to find a male, naive shiny Growlithe on my screen. I am extremely happy as it is my second favourite pokemon after Cyndaquil. I don't know how many encounters it took as I don't keep track but its been about 70hrs on my game file since my shiny Metapod. Don't know where I'll hunt for my next BQ shiny. Hoping when I do decide it will be a shorter hunt. Haven't done any other hunting as I've been focussing on my HG BQ since my last post and my brother has been playing his DS again. Good luck to those still hunting.

    EDIT: Wasn't sure if I was allowed to post again or not so edited this post just to be on the safe side but after completing the next part of the story in HG I swapped to my B2 and was hunting in Virbank complex and after 1,113 encounters I just got a shiny Koffing. It's female with an adamant nature. 2 shinies in a day wow!

    Ah, I'd really like to go shiny hunting, but I doubt I'd ever be so devoted compared to some of you guys. I once went Shiny hunting in the gen 3 (RSE) games for an Absol, but gave up after only 100 encounters. Any suggestions, other than Masuda Method?

    Well, there is the shiny charm in B2/W2 which has a 300% chance greater at finding shinies. Also soft reseting for legendaries/starters too.

    Congrats on all the shinies guys!!

    I've done 1284 REs for my 3rd SS BQ Pokemon, including 150 headbutted trees, which produced about 70 or so Heracross. Heracross would me first shiny choice, but since it's seems to take forever to headbutt, and the rain makes the battle longer, I think I'll just stick to random encountering. Right now I'm on route 36, hoping for a Nidoran, although I wouldn't be disappointed by any shiny on the route, but since I've already got Quilava on my team, vulpix is the least wanted. I'm also considering moving back to dark cave, or slowpoke's well, as a zubat qould be a terrific shiny too, and I'd love Geodude too.

    I've also hatched 30 eggs on my B2 for the community hunt. My Sneasal hunt was a dud last month, where I hatched over 900 eggs before I got bored and started this BQ, so I'm hoping for better luck this time.

    I'm currently over 540 Zangoose eggs, and not a single Shiny yet. I'm really hoping that it shines soon, because I still have yet to start on Seviper, and I promised my brother that I would get him the Shinies of the 3 elemental monkeys. I guess that I feel entitled to get Shinies alot sooner than average seeing as my first 3 hatched in less than 500. I don't know what I should do! ;A;

    Going strong with my dex, at 415. I wish I could just transfer my completed dex over from White >.< Plan on hunting for Kyurem, Latias and Terrakion as starters. Good luck everyone!

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

    The only time MM gave me a shiny in a short amount of time, was when I did not aim for a shiny ._.

    I was breeding my female Serp with my only Smeargle (which happens to be Japanese) on Black, because I want to get a female Snivy into my Black 2......egg #25, a shiny Snivy O_O

    All my other MM so far ends up giving me a shiny after more than 200 eggs.....Squirtle even takes around 3000 eggs and around a month of hunting, if I recall correctly. And the worse part is, Everstone didn't work on it, got Lonely instead of Modest -_- (it was before B2/W2, so I was MM-ing on Black, which means Everstone does not gives 100% chance of passing the Nature)

    Decided to go for the Round Charm. I started trying to complete my dex a while back and never finished, but Azurill hatch so quickly that I find myself often with an empty party, bar my Volcarona. The only Pokemon left for my dex are Tropius, Toxicroak, and the Tyranitar line, so I'm going to go scour the GTS later. In related news, I'm up to 78 eggs on my Azurill hunt, and hatched through the rest of my Rotom eggs whilst hunting. No shinies there, though.
