    Finally! After 2,004 eggs shiny Torchic decided to hatch! Was so surprised when it graced my screen cos it looked so amazing! That now completes my set of shiny Hoenn starters :-)

    Congrats on shinies guys and good luck!

    Congrats Dan on the Torchic, City on Tropius, and Laurelia on the Poliwag.

    I hit 3,000 RE's yesterday for shiny #3 in my Sapphire BQ. So easy to RE with a bike and an illimuminate Volbeat in your party. I havent been seeing that many Volbeat, and with that being the shiny I want most, I hope I still manage to snag a shiny one. That or Surskit, which is sooooo unlikely. But all in all, anything on the route I would be happy with except for Illumise. Please God dont let me get shiny Illumise .

    After 423 eggs with shiny charm Shiny Tentacool is mine!!! Its male with sassy nature. Its ability is Liquid Ooze. I don't know if that is good or not but it is shiny nonetheless. I think I might go for Osowhatt next. Photo 161.jpg

    I'm up to 1,800 SRs for braviary, was hoping it wouldn't take this long :/ Wanted it before 2,000 and it's not looking likely.

    I was going to breed for Shiny Zorua today and went to go get my Zoroark, and it's GONE. I didn't trade it because I haven't traded pokemon on GTS in forever. It's not in the day care or my party. I didn't release it by mistake because I keep a "special" box for my shinies and main party pokemon, away from my egg boxes. I haven't put Zoroark in my party in a LONG time. I searched multiple times with the search feature. searching Zoroark and Illusion. My GTS isn't even up because my DNS is set to pokecheck and I can't even get on... I don't know what happened or where he could be.. I don't have another Zoroark in this game. I used him on my team since I got him ): he was level 88. I don't know what I did.

    Similar story here. I once put my Shiny Snubbull in the dream world on Black, and she was still there when I put Pokemon aside for a few months to play some other games. The problem was... I then lost my Black Version completely! By the time I found it, I had moved residences and saw that I had to re set-up my Game Sync, including a message that said that my online data would be reset. My heart was pounding the whole time, not knowing if she would still be there or not...

    She was. :3

    And while I'm here, congrats on all the recent shinies! As for my update, I've decided to hold off on the May Community Hunt and instead work on getting a Shiny Charm. I don't have nearly as much time to play each night as most of you probably do, so I figure, if I'm going to join the Shiny Hunts, I'd better get a little extra help :X.

    I paused my MM hunt for shiny Trapinch to soft reset for Latias, even though I'm only at 332 SRs I was becoming extremely frustrated ur post however puts in in perspective how long it is but I must ask is that number with or without the shiny charm

    That is with the shiny charm :'c I seen someone on youtube or another forum saying they got to 5,000. Really hoping that isn't my case.

    Finally!
    It was my birthday on the 6th and I got Pokemon SoulSilver for my birthday. Less than ten hours passed, I reached the Safari zone and was looking for a Magmar to use against Jasmine, and I noticed that the Geodude was golden-coloured. It was completely random! This is my 2nd 1/8192 shiny ever! It has a Jolly nature, which is ok, and It is alert to sounds, which also has the chance of giving me a good IV for speed.

    I have a Shiny Giratina if you're interested but sadly I doubt I can trade since I have a DS Lite and not a 3DS.

    Anyway......

    Okay, I was getting a bit bored from hatching Oshawott for this month's CH, so I decided to chain on my Platinum, since I remember this time chaining is included. I picked a random area, turn on the PokeRadar, and just chain whatever Water/Grass-Type appeared.


    .....on the second chain encounter (FYI, that means it's still the standard 1/8192 chance), this appeared.



    Community Hunt complete

    Funny thing is, I was chaining while watching TV, and I didn't even noticed I walked into a shiny spot. It wasn't until the encounter that I realized I found a shiny
    Luckily I noticed the sparkle at the start of the battle.....Shiny Shellos' differences for its colors are Garchomp tier.
    Luckily again, the area I picked randomly means I'm encountering the West Sea one, East Sea Gastrodon's shiny colors are even more Garchomp tier, while West Sea Gastrodon's shiny colors are kinda noticeable.



    And now I'll go back to hatching Oshawott

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    Oh. My. Gosh. I know that this is hard to believe, but.... well let's just say it's freakin' insane!

    I've been hatching Tepig for a long time, and today after 1,903 MM eggs I finally found this little guy!
    http://imageshack.us/a/img89/1014/img0155exl.jpg
    http://imageshack.us/a/img9/6904/img0158ct.jpg

    Here's the insane part. So when I do MM hunts, I gather five eggs, hatch all of them, then soft reset. After I finished naming my Tepig, I hatched the next egg like I normally do (I had two left to hatch). At first I thought I was seeing things...
    http://imageshack.us/a/img707/5404/img0157zl.jpg
    http://imageshack.us/a/img841/5526/img0162hh.jpg

    TWO shinies in a row?!? Has this ever happened to anyone else?? If I did the math correctly, it should theoretically be a 1/1,048,576 chance for that to happen, right? I mean, I know that the Shiny Charm+MM odds are pretty good, but still.... Oh and here's a pic of my party, just to show the two little guys next to each other http://imageshack.us/a/img841/794/img0164ri.jpg

    Wow, sorry for all that, I'm just really shocked right now. Good luck to everyone on your shiny endeavors!

    Congrats to dan2point5 on Torchic, Shiny Lord on Tentacool, TheGiratina999 on Geodude, ohjeezitskim on Zorua, Shine, and pokemaster13 on 2 Tepigs in a row O_o!

    I did much more than I've been doing lately and managed to do 600 REs for Shinx and 180 SRs for Chimchar. My totals are now 3,100 REs for Shinx and 710 SRs for Chimchar...Starting to doubt that ID rumor about shiny starters in Platinum, seeing as it's not working for me :x I don't really care if it's not true, I just want to know

    Good luck everyone!

    EDIT: Err...I put in my White version just for the hell of it, and decided I'd look through my Dex just to make sure I hadn't seen any shinies (or accidentally caught one, not sure how I'd have done that without noticing though...). I started at the top with Snivy and just held down on the circle pad and watched to see if the "0" ever changed...And at one point, it did!

    It was sometime after Litwick for sure, since passing it made me start daydreaming about my own shiny litwick, but seconds later, I saw that 0 turn to a 1, and I'm positive because...Well, how could I mistake a 0 for a 1 >.>? Anyways, I scrolled back through, but the shiny forms all said 0 again...I'm pretty sure it was only 1 form of the non-shiny seen too (a 1 stacked on a 1). It was after Haxorus I think as well, but before the legendaries, which in my Dex leaves Cubchoo, Beartic, Cryogonal, Shelmet, Stunfisk, Mienfoo, Mienshao, Druddigon, Golett, Golurk, Bisharp, Bouffalant, Rufflet, Heatmor, Durant, Deino, and Hydreigon...

    But like I said, they're all 0s now for the shiny form...Has this happened to anyone before ;_;? Kind of disappointed now, because I thought it might mean I had a shiny I somehow didn't know about...

    Yes! I SR'ed a Regirock while I was eating out at my lucky restaurant, 5 months after Registeel. I was actually watching when it came up. It's funny how everything seems to move in slow motion when a RE shiny pops up. I was cheering inwardly even before the sparkles appeared. Paralyzed it, threw a dozen pokeballs or so, then started to get impatient and hit it with a few sonic booms. A few more pokeballs later, he was mine.

    http://i.imgur.com/9t5MbGj.jpg


    I'm not sure how many SRs it took. I've been trying to put a little time into it each day and it finally paid off. Sync failed, but his Careful nature helps compensate for his relatively low Sp. Def. I can't wait to EV train this guy... and get him a buddy. I don't even like Regirock, but I needed to unlock the Ice Chamber for Regice. That's going to be a tough one- the difference between the normal and shiny sprites is not that great.

    It's been 18 days since I last caught a shiny, so I'll just have to throw out a blanket congratulations. Oh, but I must congratulate KittyKitty on her upcoming baby. Good thing the due date isn't in early October, eh?

    Uh... what else... someone asked how we feel about the shiny charm. I rely on it heavily. Between that and the MM improvements, it feels a lot harder to get a natural 4th gen shiny. I haven't given up on SR'ing the legendaries that aren't available in Gen 5, though.

    I'm still working on my various hunts, but no luck yet. I've decided I need a change of scenery in my Pearl BQ, so I've moved to route 203. I mainly want Shinx, but Abra or Zubat would also be nice....

    Still no luck my W2 BQ is now at 12,874 RE's. My hunt for skorupi is now at 7,160 RE's with the shiny charm. I'm expecting this hunt will now go over normal odds. Skorupi just doesn't want to shine for me first 3000eggs MMing on Black and now this.

    Hey, everybody. No new shinies for me lately, but I'm still hunting away.

    currently I'm at 6110 encounters for my 2nd Ruby BQ shiny, 1500 SR for shiny Tornadus, and 4700 encounters for my Heart Gold BQ.

    Tomorrow I'm going on the yearly family holiday for a week, so hopefully I'll get in lots of shiny hunting - and maybe find at least one shiny. I didn't find any shinies during last year's holiday, but I did find a shiny Heatran on the way home in the car (and later on that same day, a shiny Spiritomb ^^ )

    Well, good luck everybody. I probably won't post again until next week - unless I find a new shiny tonight. :P

    Whew, sorry for little in the way of updates. Been busy, but hunting is still smooth.

    At the moment, my HG BQ is on hold until I get another calculator (I really can't keep track of one hunt by memory when I have to look at a calculator lmao) or until Totodile sparkles.

    Speaking of which, I'm at 630 SRs/1,890 seen for Totodile. This could still be a relatively quick hunt!
    But other than that, I don't know what to do about my Platinum version. I haven't hunted on it for ages, which has led me to consider stopping it...but I won't, having it on hold is better. Besides, when Toto sparkles, I'll most likely be back to dual hunting HeartGold and Platinum!

    Congrats to all who obtained shinies recently, particularly dan2.5 on that 2000+ Torchic MM!

    That actually happened to me with my twin shiny Sneasels in Black, back in February. I thought my game was glitching out on me, so I bred and hatched five more eggs after just to be sure that THEY didn't shine too. (I was hatching them the same way you were.) Mega-congrats!

    So, umm.. this happened.



    Community hunt complete x4!

    My luck is still insane, even with the normal odds but I've decided to just embrace all this luckiness while it lasts lol. So yea, this took 2 days just like Relicanth and it has a Naive nature and alert to sounds (possible max speed IV!). So that being said, I'm gonna evolve it into a Huntail and give it a mixed attacking set. There are still some other water types I can hunt on SS via swarm like Luvdisc, Qwilfish and Remoraid. So which one should I hunt out of those 3?

    Good luck everyone!
