    Congrats to all on your recent shinies and good luck in your ongoing hunts!

    Yesterday I hatched a shiny Mareanie! This morning I was finishing up EV training it against Shellders when one showed up shiny! I caught it fairly easily.

    I am now leveling up/SOS hunting Jangmo-o/Hakamo-o. I have already started a Passimian MM hunt, but am looking for a better foreign language parent (I have a 5 IV of either gender English parent).

    Anyone have any suggestions on what I should hunt for after my semester is over? I only hunted Pikipek and Caterpie just to see if I have any good luck lol

    Congrats to everyone who found shinies since my last post!

    Since my last post I've managed to complete my Omega Ruby badge quest! I'm very happy about that fact, even if it's not quite as fulfilling as finishing my SS BQ would be.

        Spoiler:- BQ Shiny #6:


    About 10 days ago I came across this guy in a horde, while taking a break from dexnaving numel and trying to boost Spoinks search level instead. The Machop line are good shinies and good Pokemon so I wasn't too upset about getting the duplicate type.

        Spoiler:- BQ Shiny #7:


    Finding my 7th shiny took forever. I maxed out the search level for about 6 different Pokemon before deciding to do some fishing to get a water type. And on Friday the 13th I was finally rewarded with this gorgeous shiny female Feebas! As painful as this leg of the hunt was, the rewards were very very sweet. And to find it on a fishing chain of only 14 after all the long chains, searches and hunts, was pretty sweet.

        Spoiler:- BQ Shiny #8:


    Lastly, as luck would have it I went back to Mt. Pyre summit and came across this guy pretty early in my hunting yesterday. Guess the law of averages evened out from my painfully long prior hunt. With this ghost type, I finally have personally caught one shiny of every type of Pokemon, thus completing a personal goal of mine.

    Good luck to all those still hunting, especially those doing their own Badge Quests/Island Quests/Legendaries etc.

    I hope my all things considered (outside of Pokemon 7) decent luck on this BQ passes to all of those hunting!

    Good luck!

    Default Hi fellow shiny hunters! I am new to the shiny hunting scene and I have question.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question.
    However I need to know what this means. Sometimes I watch Shiny Hunters on Youtube hunt and in the title of there videos they will say for example "Phase 1" "Phase 2" "Phase 3" what do these phases mean exactly? I'm not talking about like Safari Zone. They will put these "Phase" in titles on many different targets. Can someone please explain why they do this and what it means exactly? Google was no help looking for the answer... Thanks and best of luck on your Shiny hunts!
    Current Hunt: Froakie

    Thank you to those of you who congratulated me on my Null hunt. (@Laurelai ever seen Guzzlord when you drop a bean? It's the cutest thing evar)

    Just got my newest shiny while casually EV training a Celesteela. Drowzee at a SOS chain of only 26. Caught in a Heal Ball, male, level 10, Insomnia, Hasty, Capable of Taking Hits with 31s in HP, Defense, and SpDef.
    I don't really feel motivated to update my signature with an unintentional find though, so I'll just leave Null there for now >.<
    Guzzlord has stolen my heart. Or eaten it. I'm not sure.

    It's a pretty easy explanation, actually. Those shiny hunters are going for a specific target, but they're getting shinies of everything except what they're hunting for. If they're hunting fo, say, a shiny vulpix and get a marill instead, they call if "phase one" and resume hunting for vulpix. If the next shiny is an altaria, then it's "phase two" of the vulpix hunt. And they keep going until they get their vulpix. This is pretty much what cpchris is doing right now on one of their hunts. The number of "phases" it takes to get the target shiny depends on how many non-target shinies pop up before the actual target decides to cooperate.

    I'm approaching 2,700 SRs in my litten hunt. Really want to punch that smile off Kukui's face at this point.

    I didn't expect to be posting again this soon! After a few hours of SOS hunting I decided to browse the GTS to find better foreign language parents for two of my targets: Passimian and Morelull. After a few trades, I got a relatively superior Morelull with IVs in the right spots and a Modest nature so I set to breeding. 14 eggs later it shined!! I was stunned.

    I passed on Pokerus and set to EV training on Oricorio. After a chain of about 30, a white pom-pom wielding bird appeared! I have SOS chained hundreds of these birds in the past (and bred a few hundred as well), so this was something I really wanted. So now I am going to finish EV training Morelull, Oricorio, and Shellder and then move back to Passimian breeding.

    EDIT: Ok, this is unreal. I moved my special attack EV training to Psyduck since they have a much better call rate than Oricorio. Out pops a blue duck! He is lonely natured with outstanding potential; perfect IVs in HP, SpA, Attack, SpD.

    EDIT number 2: After getting Psyduck, I switched back to Oricoria for SpA (I have multiple Psyducks/Golducks from prior gens and didn't want more). Another Oricorio shined! This one has outstanding potential and pefect IVs in SpA, At, SpD, and Sp; with a fantastic in Def.

    Only after around 6 days of soft-resetting, I manage to reset myself a Shiny Snivy in Pokémon White.

    It's my first Shiny ever in this game, and it looks absolutely great.

    Welp.

    Before battling the Elite 4, I quickly transferred my Pokemon from X to OR using Bank, in order to get the shiny charm. Before battling the elite 4, I wanted to find one more shiny, specifically Zorua.

    Well Zorua wasn't showing up for me, so I ran around for a little bit until a patch of grass started shaking. I walked into it and this is what I found.

        Spoiler:- Bonus BQ shiny:


    This came as a complete shock. This was only the 2nd Lillipup I'd seen. I found this baby randomly on a search level of 2. Even came with ice fang, which is sort of sweet I guess.

    I decided I'd battle the Elite 4 after finding this one, I'll hunt more for Zorua later.

    That rings my total up to 9 shinies. By far the most I ever found on one in-game play through (previous record was 2 xD)

    Congrats to those with their shinies and good luck to those hunting!

    Well I continued doing some chain fishing on Alpha Sapphire yesterday at various sea routes, but I didn't have any luck hooking a shiny once again. I did some Friend Safari shiny hunting as well just for kicks hee hee, but no luck with that either. Right now I'm just focusing on my shiny Mareanie hunt on Moon and I've set aside my shiny Giratina hunt this week so that I would have more free time for my Moon hunt.

    I guess my game was not going to have it, with me not updating my signature. In less than 150 eggs, it spat my target shiny, Cutiefly, at me. And it couldn't have given me a better one. Female, Shield Dust, Timid, Love Ball, egg moves Baton Pass/Moonblast, 31/x/31/31/31/31.

    Onwards to Wimpod!

    EDIT: What on earth?! Third egg, Wimpod shone! I quite literally yelled "WHAT?!" Male, Lure Ball, Adamant, egg moves Wide Guard/Aqua Jet/Spikes, 31s in HP/Def/SpDef/Speed, "very good" in both attack stats.

    Next target is either going to be Meowth or Cubone.

    Congrats to all on your recent shinies and good luck in your ongoing hunts!

    My luck the last few days has been insane! Yesterday I completed EV training my recent shinies and was leveling up/SOS hunting Hakamo-o when a shiny female showed up after a few hours of hunting! I set out to EV train her against Rockruff in the hopes of getting a second shiny (so I could get both forms) and one shined this morning! After catching Rockruff, I switched to Yungoos to continue EV training and one shined! All three SOS shinies ended up with 4 perfect IVs and outstanding overall potential. Now I am off to finish EV training and wonder if this streak will continue...

    EDIT: My insane lucky streak continues!! After about two hours of SOS hunting/EV training Mudbray shined! I'm now off to do some SOS hunting for Pichu.

    EDIT #2: I really don't know how to react to this luck anymore. After a few hours of Pichu hunting, a shiny male Pichu appeared! He has outstanding overall potential with perfect HP, SpA, SpD, and Speed IVs. I set out to do some defense EV training on Cubones. When I was just about to finish up, a shiny Kangaskhan appeared!! She is outstanding as well, with one "decent" IV...in attack. I already have a competitive shiny Kangaskhan that I bred on OR, so she will remain a trophy. But the odds of her showing up have to be pretty slim.

    I love your signature, it looks great!

    Hi everyone, if anyone remembers me. I've been very quiet in general, and honestly my luck in the way of shinies is non-existent at the moment. I'm hatching for Sandygast right now, and hoping to get a random shiny in Moon. I've also been REing in the Nature Preserve since November in White 2, but nothing yet.

    Good luck everyone!

    Got the shiny charm on Pokémon Sun yesterday and have already gotten three shinies from SOS hunts. Sandyghast, Rockruff and Rattata. Once it's daytime I'll try for Dewpider. I miss posting in this thread!

    So I haven't really done any shiny hunting in the past purely because I never got the Shiny Charm to make it worthwhile (although I did chain fish a Magikarp and hatch a "perfect" 5IV Pidgey in ORAS amongst about three wild encounters). I finished the Alola Pokedex really quickly in Sun so I've started doing it in the last couple of weeks with fairly good results.

    Basically my intent is to go through all the new Gen 7 Pokemon and Alola formes through SOS Battles and then move onto to the ones I can only do from eggs (which would include the starters).

    First up was Pikipek which was roughly around 400 encounters. Ended up being Naive nature with Skill Link which isn't 100% perfect but it's pretty close, although I'll probably give it Overheat as a fourth move for battling purposes as its semi-viable with that nature. 4IV obviously and I'll consider dropping some Bottle Caps on it later down the line.

    Scooped up Yungoos yesterday after around 800 encounters sporadically spread over a week due to me going on holidays, haha. Had a Naughty nature, close again, with Stakeout for it's ability but would've liked Adaptability.

    Next up on the list is Grubbin (I really like Vikavolt's Shiny), but I'm currently hatching some Rough Skin Gible so maybe if I'm lucky I might grab one there.

    So back when X and Y came out they had friend safaris. I had someone who had charmeleon, growlithe, and braxien. I decided to hunt for growlithe, but ended up with two charmeleons, and one braxien before I gave up. So today I decided to go after that golden pupper and here he is!
