    Hang in there, it'll come Im sure! I felt the same way about my blastoise when it nearly hit 3000, and I love it all the more because it took all that time to arrive. So whenever it hatches, it will be very special.

    Well I've started collecting eggs for my weedle hunt but haven't started hatching yet, thought I would take a short break after 2 shinies in 5 minutes last week (why do my shinies pretty much always come in pairs? ) I really like the colour of shiny beedril. For the CH I might RE a Gastly. I really want a Lunatone but I have nearly every other shiny in the Giant Chasm from when I was hunting for my shiny Ditto.

    Whew!

    This caught my eye, though.

    I might be missing something, but ... What on Earth are you doing, Toey Joey? I found your post kind of weird. So ... what, you found a Woobat, but you don't like Woobat so you basically filmed yourself annihilating it and posted it here for some sort of a reaction? Or was it an accident? Seems kind of odd to me, sorry. It's just the way you've worded your post makes it sound like you planned to KO it all along. Congrats, I guess? If I'm mistaken, then sorry.

So perhaps my shiny finding rate will go up. And maybe once I’m no longer waiting to start the Johto starter hunt, Virbank will hand over Growlithe to me…!
    That's cool! I'm wanting to buy another 3DS for when Pokémon XY comes out, but I'm going to wait first and see if they announce a special edition to be released around the time of the games.

    Good luck everyone!

    I haven't had much time the last couple of days to hunt, which can be annoying when you want to hunt but keep on having real life get in the way!!! Oh well ...

    I've hatched 320 of the 370 eggs I've gathered, taking me up to 2,200 hatched for Roggenrola. Still no sparkly purple pebble. I was hoping to hatch one in time to count for the July community hunt, but it's looking like that's not gonna happen. After this hatch I'm probably gonna be back on Route 3 collecting eggs for round 6 unless I get a miracle.

    I'm sorry to hear that Cyberra, hope your hunt ends soon. As for me, I just hit 600 eggs... 605 to be exact. It's official, this hunt has started to become painful.

    @Kyle - I think Toey Joey killed it in purpose to try spark a reaction from us hunters. Jokes on him. No one appears to have cared lol.

    Anyway as for me I've gotten my 4th badge, done some training and now I'm starting hunt 5.
    I'll be hunting in the double grass of route 6 hoping for either Shelmet, Karrablast, Marill or Foongus. Really hoping I don't get a Tranquil (although a male one would be okay so I can have the set) but if I do get one I won't count it in the BQ and just keep hunting (after catching it of course).

    Congrats and good luck guys.

    So much for having two entries for the community hunt this month... 2,250 eggs hatched and Roggenrola is still not shining for me *le sigh* Back to Route 3 I go, to collect another 370 eggs.

    26,500 RE's in my LG now. Would have had more, but I haven't had much hunting time in the last few days. Gonna push the pedal to the metal in this hunt later today since I dont have any obligations. 30,000 maybe?

    Thanks a bunch for the congrats Kyle! I gotta say I bloody loved how you included that little "again!" in there, I don't know why, I just found it incredibly amusing for whatever reason, and though you haven't obtained a shiny, your posts are always a joy to see on the page! Really hoping you get a bit more time to hunt and that your next hunt isn't as soul draining as Toxxy was! On that note, I'm really hoping as always that anybody struck with a drought both small or large manages to rise above it soon like a phoenix from the ashes and earn the sparkles they so rightly deserve! This extends to everybody in that position, so even though this is a generalised comment (blame laziness :P), I really am concerned for all of you and hope you get some shinies very soon as you most definitely deserve them!

    On the note of the Community Hunt this month...

    Duskull

    Krabby
    Klink
    Glameow
    Shelmet
    Baltoy
    Oh wow, this is an incredible list! An incredible assortment of shinies, and 3 of which I'm hunting for right at the current moment! I'm really impressed with the variety in this month's CH, so it'd be great to see a bunch of us contribute and see how many of us can complete it this time around!

    Alright, so before I go into this, I think you're all going to hate me now...

    Congratulations to Growlie19 on Patrat and maldoror on Lunatone... not that many today, it seems....

    And welcome to shiny hunting, BugPokemonMaster316! I remember when I first started hunting I had many half-hearted hunts that didn't go anywhere, but at the end of Summer, I decided to join in on the community hunt. August was nearly over, so I didn't get a shiny in the Chargestone Cave hunt, but in September I joined in on the Riolu and Shuckle hunt and got both, Riolu in only 195 eggs (although Shuckle went over 1,000). So Riolu was my first shiny.

    Just thought I'd share that... I find it strange that I've only been doing this for a year. I only have four shinies to show for it though...

    Anyway, I've hatched 206 Mudkip eggs now and nothing. My next shortest hunt after 195 eggs was mid 500s, I think, so we'll see how this goes...

    I have shiny news, hurrah!
    I had collected 7 boxes of eggs (one each of charmander, squirtle, caterpie, weedle, pidgey, rattata and spearow) and decided to RE a little while hatching them all to mix things up.
    While hatching my second box of eggs, I ran into a wild shiny Sandshrew! Quirky female, so I don't think I'll be using it competitively, but that's fine by me. Half my shinies are meant to be trophies anyways.
    I'm pretty happy about that catch, as I really like Sandslash in shiny form and have been meaning to hunt it for a while ^_^

    Cyberra, I certainly know the feeling there!

    Phanpy still ain't shiny. Must be almost 3,000 eggs in now, but no luck. I'll try for another couple of hours or so tonight, but I suspect it might be too late to get one tonight. IT'S SO UPSETTING D= I'll plow on regardless even if I don't hit tonight's target, but I won't be happy about it. =P

    Also, with regards to the new hunt list, nothing set my world alight initially; I was thinking I might give Staryu a go via RE, but it shares its routes with 65% chance of running into Frillish, so I'm not sure...

    I finally got my hands on a foreign Glameow so I'll start collecting eggs for it soon. Hopefully MM is nice to me this time.

    Good luck everyone!

    Oh my word.... after over 1600 eggs I have hatched my second shiny Totodile!!! This time I planned a moveset. I managed to get Japanese Totodile with Dragon dance and Ice punch on it. I then levelled it to 48 and got Superpower and Aqua jet on it as well. I am so glad I got this!! I know I already have a shiny Totodile but I like it so much and to get the whole evolution line in shiny I will need three in total anyway. I was trying for Tepig though and just decided to put Totodile in the daycare and get three Tepig eggs from the box and two new Totodile eggs form the daycare man.

    Wow I am so happy! And I got my third Community hunt sooo Community Hunt Complete X3! Wow just got that third one in before the end of the month.

    Congratulations to all shinies and good luck to everyone. Sorry for blanket congrats but it has been a while since my last post. I will try to congratulate everyone in my next post.
    Shinies are good.

    It's all luck, plain and simple. I got my shiny Gastly after 10,780 REs, and probably a good 2 or 3 weeks of encountering, but for all you know, you could get it on your next encounter, and that's what keeps you going.

    I guess you're right about it coming any time, that kinda motivates me. Awesome that you got shiny Gastly btw its color is amazing. The Gastly line is one of my favorites.

    I took a little break from route 14 in my white 2 to do a little secret hunt.
    This hunt finally brought me over 400 hours in my game - although it should probably be near over 500... I don't save after I hatch eggs unless there was a shiny of course.

    I did around 600 encounters for this pokemon yesterday..
    and today after 1,128, she shone! AND I got it live! I'm happy because it was the second pokemon of the video, then i got a critical capture! So the video is short! Just the way I like them! For uploading purposes!
    Not letting me upload photos again so here is the link to the post;

    And the live video!

    Didn't expect any other shiny in July. Catching her made 6 shinies this month. None of which qualified for the CH xD

    Just finished a small chain, had to take a break from getting Staryu eggs. At a chain of 18, a shiny male Ponyta appeared. Ponyta has such a beautiful shiny sprite, and Rapidash is even better.

        Spoiler:- Shiny Ponyta pics:

    I'm just extremely glad that he's got the ability I wanted, Flash Fire. At a chain of 33, a random geodude had to show up and end everything, but atleast I managed to get one shiny from this chain

    Speaking of getting ready for August, I'm MMing for a Staryu. My impatience usually gets to me while MMing, so I hope I won't lose motivation and end the hunt at around 500 eggs. Since school's starting again soon, I'll have less time to do anything worthwhile. I'm hoping to get a Staryu before 500 eggs, but it all just relies in luck.

    Good luck to those that are hunting for shiny pokemon, and congratulations to those that have got one recently. Last minutes of July (for me), lets see who'll get the last shiny pokemon for July 2013.

    Congrats to crashandcortex on Shellos, Dangertrout on Sandshrew, Scrufox86 on Totodile, ohjeezitskim on Druddigon, and Waffle King!

    Thanks for the congrats, Kyle Clarthy

    My assumption as well. I’d go so far as to say there’s a slight chance it was fake just so he could try and troll

    --------

    500 REs today. 11,600 REs on Platinum and 2,800 REs on Black 2…If a nice male Shinx with intimidate would shine next on Platinum, then all these REs are worth it. Or female with intimidate I’d be okay with, too, but I’d prefer male…Would prefer a female with intimidate over a male with rivalry :x

    Looks like only 2 shinies for me this month…Although, I guess I did find 3, huh? And I guess it’s still good, seeing as January and March were 0 shinies, February and June were only 1 shiny, and May was 2. Hope I can get at least 3 shinies in August I’ll set my goals high.

    Also, I hadn’t really thought about it before, but I guess at this point, even if I do find Growlithe, I’ll wait to start the Johto starters until the Black XL comes out. It’s less than 2 weeks anyways, and there’s not much of a point in taking Black 2 out for such a short time. I’ve waited this long anyways, so…I guess that means I’ll start hunting in the Abundant Shrine whenever I find Altaria.

    Good luck, everyone!

    EDIT: Hm, not to get too far ahead of myself, but I think after I've gotten a couple shinies at Abundant Shrine (depending on which ones), I'll move onto Lostlorn Forest or Mistralton Cave...Lostlorn mainly for Venipede (20%) for a Scolipede, though it also has 5% for Heracross who I really want, and 15% for Roselia, and if I don't already have a bunch from the Shrine, 25% Cottonee. And Mistralton has 30% Boldore, 20% Aron, and 20% Axew, so 70% chance of something I want! Oh well, just some long-term planning, I guess. I suppose I could even switch around some...Find 1 shiny at Abundant, then 1 shiny at Lostlorn, 1 at Mistralton, repeat...Seeing as 6 months of almost-every-day hunting at Virbank is getting a little tiring...

    Congrats to CrashandCortex on Shellos, Dangertrout on Sandshrew, Scrufox on Totodile, ohjeezitskim on Druddigon (a personal fav of mine) and WaffleKing on Ponyta.

    Officially got hunt 5 up and running yesterday with 800RE's. Will continue today and see what happens. Not expecting anything as last 2 hunts were extremely short!

    Good luck everyone especially MasterLeo, Cyberra, YNCRN, Cpchris, Crimson_Blazor and BenYS. Keep at it guys!

    Congratulations to Dangertrout on Sandshrew, Scrufox86 on Totodile, ohjeezitskim on Druddigon and Waffle King on Ponyta!

    I didn't do as much hunting as planned yesterday... so only 228 eggs for Mudkip now... hopefully I'll get more done today!

    What is your opinion on Nintendo giving out these shiny Dialga/Palkia/Giratina over the next couple of months?

    I mean, if you've spent days SRing for a shiny Dialga, a pokemon that precious few would have, wouldn't the fact that everyone would have one at the same time (and with minimal effort) annoying - that you've 'wasted' that time and effort?

    Personally, i'm looking forward to getting them, but they are no where near as special as my own home-caught shinies.
