    *checks* Oh, we do have a CH going on. I guess that means I completed it with litten, since litten (now torracat) has a three-stage evolution.

    I'm REing in the grass next to the trainer school on route 1. Want meowth but I'll take grimer, too. Do not want magnemite; I already have a (normal) grubbin that I want to use once the thing evolves.

    ...And the shiny tapu koko is being distributed in Japan now *snarl*

    Currently my MM mimikyu hunt is at 810 hatched and I have now run out of boxes. This being my first ever MM attemp I had no idea how frustrating it was to release 27 boxes of Pokémon! If anyone wants a Jolly 5 or 6 IV mimikyu let me know and I'll hook you up I can't actually check their IVs in this game yet but I know they are at least 5 IV as both parents are 6 IV.

    In other hunts Heart Gold is at 1150 re hoping for mantine, Soul Silver is at 6050 re and type null reclaim is at 3100 sr.

    Good luck everyone on your hunts and may RNGesus by with you!

    EDIT: I must have missed the CH also but managed to complete it by accident with BAMFaros the Flaafy (now ampharos) in my Heart Gold BQ

    Well I am still on my swap to get a female shiny Poplio this time on egg 150 had a Shiny HA male magikarp. So this time swaped it for a HA totodile with ice punch, crunch and dragon dance as egg moves with 31/?/31/31/?/31 IVs so I'll be needing to cap both attack and sp.def.

    A few days of eye-numbing Masuda-Method hatching and I got myself a shiny Feebas! Its a male, but I suppose shiny Milotic's colors look good for a male even if I like the long head fins of the females more than the male's. What's most amazing though is that it is a 6 perfect IV pokemon, one of the few I have ever hatched period! All the more impressive given that one parent only had 4 perfect IVs, the other 5. Course its too bad he has no use for that perfect Attack stat.

    I rarely nickname my pokemon, but this one I am tempted to nickname something like "Miracle."

    Well I hatched even more eggs today hoping to get the Female Magikarp swap and at 416 eggs....

    ANOTHER male Shiny Magikarp with HA! So this time I swaped it so I could get a Shiny HA Gallade. I would put IVs up but I am chaining for HA drifloon right now but it was 4ivs.

    It's been a while since I did shiny hunting and to get back into it I want to do a Full Odds hunt. I plan on hunting for Litten, Aerodactyl, and the Johto Starters on Moon, Sun, and HeartGold respectively. In which order should I do it in? I'm only going to have a week to hunt before I get back to school

    • The Litten is for a Mono-Dark Trial Quest
    • The Johto starters are for a Shiny Badge Quest
    • The Aerodactyl is for my living dex

    So far, only in Japan. With a code obtained at stores, not through the internet. They bleeping well better release it worldwide >(

    @ jginz1 - If you intend to SR litten, you may be at it far longer than a week. I started SRing mine the day after Christmas and I only got it a couple of days ago, after three months of hunting.

    So should I do the Johto starters or Aerodactyl?

    Entirely up to you. But Sun/Moon have a 3-minute cutcene. It can be brutal when the hunt drags on. MM breeding one would probably be faster, SRing can take forever. Another shiny hunter on here has been hunting rowlet since launch and has not gotten it yet... He's approaching 15,000 soft resets.

    Edit: *sigh* I was afraid of this... After 2,805 REs at the trainer school, I get the shiny I least wanted. A magnemite. It's gentle nature and likes to thrash about, with Magnet Pull. Will come in handy when I find another steel-type I want to RE, but not what I want from here. Gonna reset the count and try again for meowth.

    That's community hunt complete X2, because magnemite --> magneton --> magnezone

    Anyone have a Chuggaa shiny moment? By that, I mean they search for a Pokemon for their team on a normal playthrough, and it is shiny

    Well technically this was after my playthrough but I was searching for a Smeagle to catch for a team idea I am no longer using and the first Smeargle I got was shiny.

    The annoying thing is I had no luck chaining Smeargle pre-completion.

    I think I have a hunt commitment problem.... I just keep starting new ones and not finishing just skipping around wherever I like! It's a sign of my impatience probably. But my hunts currently stand like this:
    - SR Dratini in the Game Corner - Leafgreen
    - RE Repel Trick Venomoth - Soulsilver
    - RE Unown - Soulsilver
    - RA Latias - Omega Ruby
    - HE Swablu - Omega Ruby
    - HE Zigzagoon - Omega Ruby
    - Island Scan Cyndaquil - Sun
    - Island Scan Roselia - Sun
    - RE Roselia - Black 2
    - SR Dialga - Platinum
    - FS X - Y
    - HE Klefki - Y
    - SR Archen - Y
    - RE Bronzor/ Zubat - Pearl

    So these are all ones I've tried to go for recently and plan on coming back to.... It's a bit too many I think and I need to focus on one or two for now. I think Latias is my biggest goal and then I'll hunt something RE gen 4/5 on the side. Because that requires so little concentration.
    Congrats on the shinies everyone and good luck with future hunts!

    Edit: RedJirachi I know I just prefer hunting for it over it being handed to me personally.

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

    Yanma was swarming on HeartGold today, so I went to Route 35 to hunt it in the hopes that I could check off one of the most elusive one of my swarm targets (this is only the 5th time it’s swarmed since I started hunting swarms in September, 2nd lowest only to Dunsparce). I was also repel tricking to eliminate Ditto and Abra (very small chance for either, but would rather finish Abra line on Platinum, so I did it just in case). The good thing is that this route also has Nidoran, Drowzee, and Pidgey – all shinies I could use. After 4,584 REs, and on the 184th RE of the day, I found my 2nd shiny Pidgey!



    The only downside to this being the shiny is that it’s the easiest pokemon to find of everything I could get here. There are a lot of routes where I could hunt Pidgey at at least a 50% appearance rate, whereas Nidoran are going to be a bit more difficult (especially trying to get the right number of each gender). Nevertheless, I still needed Pidgey (I still need one more!) and I do like its shiny and am very glad to have it! Wondering when I’ll get Miltank though…Every single shiny I’ve been getting on this game is during a swarm :s

    Also, it seems Pidgey counts towards this month’s CH (good idea, btw, Shine!), so Community Hunt complete for me!

    ~~~~~~~~

    Oh my :O !!! After just 93 REs, I’ve found another shiny – on HeartGold again – but this time it’s my main target: shiny Yanma!




    Despite only being 93 REs, I’d left to run some errands, exercise, and get a couple other things done after finding Pidgey, so this didn’t happen until about 5 hours later. It was so amazing to see appearing! I couldn’t believe I’d found another shiny so quickly :3 This is also my 8th 2-in-1-day (well, one of those was a 3-in-1-day, so technically 7th), and for the fifth time, it’s happened on the same game!

    This one is female, Hasty, Speed Boost, and has the following IVs: 20 – 1 – 2 – 18 – 5 – 9. I’ll probably be leaving this as Yanma and hopefully whenever I’m able to find another one it’ll be better to evolve into Yanmega.

    Good luck, everyone (especially TheMaster327, Bumblebee5253, umbreonfan3636, CharlieDoryRose, SheroGH, G-Money, Martinzqx, tui, markasdarkas, RaichuArcanine, pokemaster13, Tina, Shy, Ruru_star, skilax1234, Pluski, ElectricBassClef, and Nakashima)!

    I'm in the quest to get all of the shiny gender differences. It's frustrating since so many of them come from Gens I-IV. Thank goodness they quieted it down after that.
    I got my shiny Tapu Koko, though. So I'm really happy about that!

    I just had my 3rd shiny encounter so I thought I would share the full experience I played through SM not stoked we didnt have the bank available on release. Once I beat the Elite 4 the bank was released and I started over fresh !
    As I galavant through the Alolan countryside life is good ! Play through is still fresh , intros over , pokemon lvls into the teens. Out on Route 3 Im ducking the shadows. I thought I already battled Ace Trainer Ian then he lit up !!! So I recognized the Psyduck and dispatched him quickly. As I made my way up the rocky bluff I came to a grassy point on the left where a poke ball rested. I knew I had grabbed it before and it was a Heal ball. So I guess I passed out and didnt save. As I haste my way through the thick grass a pokemon encounters me. I looked away then with that "5 seconds of focus" we shiny lovers give every random pokemon the Cutiefly had 3 little stars emerge from it !! I cycled through my pokes to find an attack that would mame but not kill. In that time Cutiefly called for help! It was another Cutiefly so I could test my move. After I got the shiny in range I fumbled for my bag to see how many heal balls I had since I never made it to the one in front of me .. I caught it on the first try. Female Cutiefly in a Heal Ball with Bold nature named Tinker Bellé. Really likin this shiny and this new play through

    So as promised, I went back to chain fishing on Y and also on Alpha Sapphire, tho I didn't find any shinies this way these past few days, which is fine by me any ways since I'm still euphoric and appeased after having found that shiny Giratina last week hee hee. I did some more egg hatching on Moon version too for my Mareanie hunt and I even had free time to work on Friend Safari shiny hunting doing random encounters, which was fun. :]
