    And for BQs (again, no plans for doing this either!), is it more of an unspoken rule that your first shiny has to be a starter, or is it just a rule that you need a shiny before your first badge and everyone just wants to go for a starter as their first versus one of the (2?) that you can get before the first badge?
    Chase Lati@s around the Dream Yard, save in front of it, and then proceed as if it were a normal SR hunt.

    People just like to get the shiny starter because it is an SR hunt, and many of the other hunts they will do in the BQ will be REs.

    Awesome congratiez~*
    Maybe nickname it Gator, Riptide, Jawgrip, Grip, Fangmouth, Toothy, Curvefang, etc.
    If I get another one i'm nicknaming it GATORade (Yes like the drink x3)

    I finished collecting my 300 charmander eggs earlier today, now I'm hatching them all. *crosses fingers for a female to shine*
    WOAH! OMG I'm SRing for Charmander in my LeafGreen! That's so funny.
    @Dylz- Its waiting for u in the grass! no really i think that u will complete this hunt lol.

    For the nickname, u might try Poseidon (if tht even fits), Neptune, Mar (Sea in spanish LOL), Marine, Croc, Gator, Awesome (no jk lol), uhmmmm...
    Use google!

    AAaaaaannnddddd...
    I have a question. So, ya know like in the beginning of the game where u dont have any pokeballs but u do have a starter so u can encounter pkmn, can u encounter a shiny? because in my LG i mightve encountered a shiny mankey but i wasnt paying attention so i didnt see the stars and also idk if it was green or if it was just discoloration on an old game...
    Thx! Gracias! [DENADA]

    No, you don't have to get a shiny starter as your first badge quest shiny, it's just that people like to. I couldn't be bothered to SR for a shiny starter in my Leaf Green badge quest for example (yet I could be bothered to hunt shiny starters in my Platinum/White 2 BQ - even though the SR take longer than in LG... ^^; )

    Lol, no. I thought it was oddly appropriate that the day that I join serebii forums is the day that I run into my first B2 shiny random encounter, it's only fitting that the pokemon and my UN match. xDDD

    The guy above you called it first, lol.

    Yes, the pokemon you encounter before getting pokeballs can be shiny. It sucks when that happens >.<

    Your first pokemon has Magnet Pull, right? If it doesn't make sure you get something like a Magnezone with Magnet Pull and you'l run into Metangs much more. It helped me a lot with my Metang hunt!

    Well, the irony stands on both cases.

    1,975 SRs for Lugia, and a slim chance for it to shine before 2,000. I will hopefully get to 3,000 by the end of next week, or maybe more.

    In other shiny news, I EV'd my Klink and evolved it once into Klang for my Black playthrough. I gave it 152 HP / 104 Atk / 252 SAtk.

    Also, here's the photos of my Klink and now Klang:

    I wouldn't say it's useless. For all we know male Combees might get an evolution next gen.

    Hello everyone! ^_^ I have been absent for a while But I am back and ready to go First off, I adore the new thread, it is going to make the community hunts 10x more organized and such. In my game, I am currently trying to get the Round Charm and a nursery. After that I will be MM'ing. My list of targets is endless. One goal of mine is to MM Relicanth. It takes 10,000+ steps to hatch, so I will use the nursery for all of those eggs, and only be able to do a small number of those a day, but they will add up over time. Others are Vullaby, Minccino, Emolga, the monkey trio, Kecleon, Zorua. (I have a list of like 50 targets though )

    So I am going to begin my hunting again ASAP (thank goodness for days off coming up). Congratulations on recent shinies and hoorah for a new thread!

    Hey guys, congrats dan on that registeel and aqua on that long time coming klink. Good to see droughts ending. My drought though, only extends EVEN further, im now at 700 eggs for shroomish on black. Then when im finished i'll start hatching for my coveted shiny turtwig on w2. @Pocketmontsre- i see what you mean about relicanth, i have several targets with high egg cycles, i even struggled with hatching lucario who is only 26 egg cycles. Gl all
    Shiny pokemon y u no show us ur shiny colours?
    Edit: @ aqua yeah i intend to be around 1,000 eggs by then, its gonna be fun!
    @Dan Mudkips one of my future hunts, and of course torchic to complete the trio.
    My fun fact! Average mm amount 791 eggs! Gl

    Well I haven't start the Regigigas hunt yet since I wanted a day or 2 off. Will start tomorrow at some point. Think my next target after this will be shiny Mudkip via MM. Wont be SR'ing for a while after this.

    Your Shroomish better appear by the end of next week paddy >=(

    2,018 SRs for Lugia now, not expecting it before 2,500. Good luck guys.

    I now also know that my next hunt must be either Route 35 or Ho-Oh, so hopefully Lugia comes soon. GLE

    Fun fact: My average amount of Encounters/SRs per shiny is now 2,251! And, Klink and Bouffalant took the same amount of REs...

    Finally reached 200 medals, and started hunting in Chargestone Cave. My RE count is now 255 and going, so I've got a nice start today. I decided to not use a Magnet Pull user after all, and I caught myself a wild Watchog from Route 1 to use while hunting. Level 66, and thankfully Illuminate, so I have things a lot easier when a shiny appears. N's pokemon kept surprising me, but now that I caught them, they won't be surprising me anymore. A question about Watchog: what moves should I be teaching it? Mine now know Super Fang, Thunder Wave, Hypnosis(for anything T-Wave can't hit), and Mean Look(lack of better move). Anything I'm missing?

    I think Nintendo could release Genesect's shiny form as an event. They could label it "Zombie" Genesect or "Battle Damaged" Genesect - the red colour could be rust, his grey eyes are shot out and the twinkling could be billed as sparks flying.

    I thought about it... I am going start shiny hunting again. I recognize very few of you, and almost none of you will remember me.

    Most recent shiny: God, it was when I had no idea where Rock Smash was, so I looked for it in the old location. Wandering through the grass, a double battle with a Toxicroak and Watchog. I was not paying attention, and when I looked at the screen a minute later, I realized the Toxicroak looked a little weird. I could not tell if it was shiny or not, but thought I might as well attempt a capture. I failed, and later checked my Toxicroak entry in the pokedex. I had not seen a normal Toxicroak, only a shiny one. Kind of threw my 3DS a little. Restarted after transfering all pokemon to White 1. That was about a month ago, and I have yet to pick up my DS. Going to try and go through, and with the rules of the thread, probably won't be back for quite a bit. See ya.
    Mine is an unchanging love, higher than the heights above, deeper than the depths beneath, free and faithful, strong as death.
