    May Day hunt completed! CH 1/2 completed.
    It's not good for competitive play but at least i'll have a cool pick up pokemon!
    Good luck on all your hunts!

    My luck with non-FS RE shinies continues. Yesterday, while hunting for Shelmet I found a pink female Quagsire. Just now, while hunting for Roselia I found a shiny orange flower Flabebe. My first birthday shiny! It's not the Treecko I am MMing for, but I'll take it.

    Hmmm, my luck seems to have been sucked up by the Sentret.
    I have two hunts over the odds by now (FS in X and SR in W2)
    Plus my Pearl BQ will go over the odds today or tomorrow, if it hasn't already.
    I haven't really been counting, but I'm getting near the 80 hour mark there.
    I think I may just scrap the Pearl BQ after all

    edit - but my game is cursed!

    I hate you lol. I did that once, and only once since I got to almost 13k soft resets and just didn't have it in me anymore. Haha. Knowing my luck, I would have got Chikorita, which would have been the only one I wouldn't have wanted to start with. Theres always that 'doubt' that I skipped over one since I mashed the A button two or three times too far and picked the first pokemon on the screen. Darn TV.

    I haven't been on the shiny hunt for a long time since giving up X and Y for Diablo III. But The last shiny I did get I was horde encountering for a shiny Taillow. I was into the night thinking it'd never happen after believing the odds of the Taillow horde written on Bulbapedia. Sure enough there it was! It was one of those shinies that you just look at mindlessly and don't realise what has happened. I don't have a pic to upload at the moment sadly

I'm hoping at least something will shine but I'm crossing my fingers for an Ivysaur. Although Sunkern and Gogoat(especially him are equal as cool). Congratulations on everyone's recent shinies.
    I did 5K in FS for a Noibat before getting fed up and quitting. I then started a hunt (in the FS still) for a Shiny Bergmite and had done 2k encounters. My brother goes into a random safari to find what it has, and BAM, his first encounter is a Shiny Bergmite. Needless to say, I now hate my FS luck...

    Well there's my first accidentally MM'd shiny! Lovely Female Harvest Phantump... 3IV missing Att [darn] and SpDef. 0IV in Speed deliberately though :P

    I have named her Olive, mainly because that was the first tree I could think of that's also a girls' name! She was the 31st Phantump I've hatched and around 100-105 in total from all the eggs I've been breeding for competitive with the Japanese Ditto.

    Hello everyone!

    It's been a very, very long time since I last came to these forums, but with the omega ruby and alpha sapphire games announced, I got flared up to play my games again. Not sure why I took a break as long as I did, but dont we all need a break sometimes?

    So, now that I'm completely out of the shiny hunting loop.. I decided I'll start back up by doing a Badgequest in White2/Black2. I noted down both games because my first hunt will be a dual hunt in both games. The game that gives me a shiny first will be the game I'll do my badgequest on. I just wanted to hop back in with a dual hunt, as I find those more fun to do personally ^^

    I hope you'll all welcome me back into the thread, and happy hunting! \o/

    Thanks for the link, I couldn't for the life of me find the hack check thread when I went looking. Guess it didn't occur to me to check Fifth Gen.

    I'm still doing my hunt for Squirtle, but nothing's shone for me yet. I did hatch a flawless 6IV female bulletproof Chespin that I'll be using to MM a shiny one though.
    I mostly just posted to congratulate people.

    Cyberra, that electrode looks really cute
    Congrats to: zed3 for lillipup, maldoror for quagsire and flabebe (lucky indeed), rinni for taillow, amazinchi for Phantump (one I really like).

    I think I'll take a break from shiny hunting, cause I need some time to figure things out with my thesis and all those serious stuff around it....That being said I'll soon start a BQ with soul silver, while in pokemon y I'll breed some pokemon for competitive purposes (maybe something will shine whilst doing this :-))

    Good luck to everyone on your challenges, especially to nakashima on your quest(s) and to Dangertrout, I hope you'll both find sparkles, and soon ^_^

    I'm taking a break on Y version to go back to Soul Silver and try resetting for a shiny Groudon. Before I could do that I had to beat Red and I barely managed. I did it and am now going for Groudon.

    Congrats to Keovix on Giratina, Zekromaster826 on Heracross, Rain Dance on Corsola, ohjeezitskim on Ralts (shame it hasn't got those IVS though!), mellowrush on Snover, LopunnyBunny on Minccino, Zed3 on Lillipup, maldoror on Quagsire and Flabebe, AmazingChi on Phantump, and anyone else I might have missed!

    I'm at 1179 eggs for Igglybuff currently, going at a pace of around 4 boxes collected and hatched per day (of course, with school dumped straight in the middle). I don't particularly mind this hunt being long statistic wise, I just really want it to shine before I go on holiday (24th) so I can start a BQ. Plus the next two weeks I've got GCSEs.... ah, I really don't know. I don't want to stop shiny hunting over this time but it's impossible to multi-task revising and egg collecting/hatching. I can SR and RE when I'm writing stuff though, and therefore will probably do more of my Cranidos hunt, which sits currently at a small 455 SRs.

    Also I found out that 2dses are around Ł90, which is pleasantly surprising because I thought they'd be more. I'm not sure what my parents would think if I brought another DS though.

    Good luck everybody!

    ----------------

    Dat Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire! I will most definitely be doing a BQ for these games (not sure which I'm gonna get just yet.), I'll probably SR for Mudkip, can't wait! So, is anyone else planning to do a BQ for these remakes?

    --------

    No shinies for me yet. Route 14 for my BQ is at ~2.6k encounters, so still in the early stages here. However, Spritzee is now at 1,955 eggs >.<! I'll probably be in the 2k's by the end of today, but maybe I'll get it before then?? doubt it!

    Anyways, good luck everyone; especially Dangertrout on that BQ, don't you dare give up now! I'll never understand why people quit hunts after putting so much effort into it. To me, the longer the hunt, the more determined I get.

    Congrats on the new shinies everyone!!

    Welp, I feel quite relieved at the moment. Decided randomly to take a break from schoolwork and chain Inkay. I got the chain up to 40 faster than ever before; however, this is when my luck ran out! I spent the next 50 MINUTES (I was counting and could not believe it took that long) resetting for the shiny patch before it finally appeared, the whole while thinking that I had done something wrong or missed the patch already. It's all good since I did end up catching her, but talk about 50 minutes of high stress and anxiety. Haha.

    Also! I finally picked a target that I am going to stick to: Tynamo! I'm Static+Repel Tricking in Seaside Cave in B2. Pretty good so far: 95% of the pokemon I encounter are Tynamo, with a couple of Boldores here and there.

    Good luck to everyone on their hunts!

    @ClipOwl: Good look with Squirtle and Chespin!

    @Mellowrush: Thanks! ^^ I'll be trying for sure.

    @StrongBad456: Good luck on Groudon! We all need a switch of targets at times =3

    @Keane: Real life always comes first, try your best on those GCSEs! That said, I hope something shines for you soon ^^

    @Supremacy: I'm thinking of doing a BQ with one of them while playing through the other.. though my fiancee might steal my 2nd game before i get a chance to claim it to play through with xP Definately doing a BQ though. Hope Spiritzee shines for you soon!

    @ShiningKnightXY: 850 isnt a lot yet! Thatd be a real quick hunt imo xP

    @professorj15: Congrats on the Inkay! And good luck on Tynamo =] Hope you get it!

    -----------

    I just finished doing my first 100 SR's for Tepig, obviously nothing yet xP Was hoping to get the SR's done quicker, as I'm used to having 2 systems.. But apparantly, I left my DS phat in America.. Darnitdarnitdarnit =[ Ah well, can retrieve it in 3 weeks time. Tempted to pick up a 3DS XL though, not gnna lie.

    I was using Masuda Method with Dratini(Spain) and Ditto and got a shiny Dratini in the 6th egg, but I quit after 5 eggs(This was my first time using MM, I said this is not for me and just quit) and then took the 6th egg just for the hell of it, I even took Dratini and Ditto out of the day care after taking the 6th egg, then it hatched a shiny, it was so cool I could not believe my eyes lol. Then the same day I tried my luck with a female Growlithe and Vulpix(Japanese) and got a shiny Growlithe in the 53rd egg. I am now trying it with a female Charmander and a male French Charmander and have hatched about 300+ eggs with no luck. I wish I had a shiny charm but it's impossible for me to catch all 705 pokemon needed.

    Oh and the shiny Dratini was Adamant male cause it was an adamant Ditto holding an everstone. Shiny Growlithe was also Adamant with Intimidate ability. It's really nice to have two of my fave pokemon in shiny form.

    OMG I can't believe this I'm totally freaking out. I've been at this since 2011 and I can't believe it's finally happened. Seeing this beauty scroll across the screen felt completely unreal, what luck to get her just after RS remakes were announced!

    I've reset FAR more than this, but on the 1000th SR, guess who finally shone?

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps04090405.png

    (You can barely see the sparkles )

    And my Timid synch worked!!! Omg omg I'm so happy and so glad that it's finally over. I'm scared to turn my game off :P I've saved at least 3 times!

    Round 2 for pachirisu has come up empty. I'm going to sleep, then start collecting more eggs for round 3.

    Not much going on worth mentioning in Y. Busily picking on ice-types to level up my delphox, as he is now underleveled in comparison to the rest of my team.

    Quite a bit of congratulating to catch up on, it seems everyone is as busy as usual!! Sorry for the wall of text.

    Especially to Super Pichu Fan for the Latias! I'm glad you finally got her, she's a beautiful shiny. Makes me want to SR for her too. And welcome back Nakashima!

    I mostly wanted to congratulate everyone. No shiny news from me, I haven't been MMing much recently (I'm preparing a doubles team for the competition coming soon) but I have a question. If you find a shiny in a horde, does the shiny sparkles and noise still happen? I'm afraid of fainting one without realising while EV training with hordes.

    Don't worry, that happened with my Pikachu and again with my shiny Goomy reclaim :3 so worth it though

    anyway i've been on/off hatching Trapinch and going into the friend safari, did a LOT of REs today and found nothing.

    I go into another safari and find a shiny Drowzee (on like, 7 REs). She's okay, but.... Not my Trapinch ;-; maybe i can use drowzee to hypnotise the shiny Trapinch into coming out of the grass.....
    hey look I found my password! I haven't been on Serebii since who knows when, so I apologize if I'm a little noobish c:

    I currently have no shinies for trade, my X Save File was corrupted and I lost a total of 67 Shinies. I'm trying to reclaim these at the moment.

    Edit: on a long road to recovering shinies. I have reclaimed my Goodra, Ampharos, and Whimsicott. Currently working on Vanillite.

    I want to come on and congratulate everyone as well! Kingzard, congratulations on getting that growlithe so quickly, I remember you said you were prepared for a long hunt for the two fire pups! Good luck on psyduck/vulpix if you're still hunting those. Super Pichu that is a wonderful latias, congratulations! Nakashima, welcome back and good luck on your badge quest!
    Also good luck to everyone, it seems quite a few people have got some stubborn hunts at the moment. I hope something shines for you soon, Dangertrout. I've started to properly get the experience of a slow badge quest mon now. After my first two very quick ones which I got after just a few days, I have been stuck in the game corner now for over a week. Currently at 2,820 SRs, which is 14,100 pokemon seen, and at approx. 81 % chance of having encountered one. I was expecting this to be fairly quick in the beginning (probably due to my previous luck) and started losing hopes around 1000 SRs, but now my motivation is back up and I'm enjoying reaching high numbers and really not expecting anything to shine quite yet. To spice it up a bit every 500 resets I pick up a slowpoke egg and then hatch five when I pick up the fifth.

    When I encountered psyduck it did sparkle like normally, yes. I've been wondering about something sort of similar though, as occasionally a horde will show only 3-ish of the pokemon, and I've been worrying that if a shiny appears on the periphery it will be hard to spot... does anyone know if this is a possibility?

    I find the best thing to focus on when horde hunting is to watch for the slight darkening of the screen when a shiny appears. If you are paying attention, it is pretty noticeable.

    While continuing my Roselia hunt, I found a shiny Ducklett yesterday evening. I have three Swanna from FS, so this will remain a Ducklett.
