    Question: In random wild encounters, does Synchronize (fainted Munna, for instance) stack with Illuminate?

    I'm SR for eggs now. Not that confident but we'll see. Lost the track of eggs sadly!

    I'm pretty confident about getting a shiny tomorrow, since I have a four hour car drive ahead of me.

    Oh wow! (well i was hoping i could hatch it for last months CH but just missed out....) I hatched a shiny Cleffa and although i missed last months CH it is mostly pink so it can count for this month! Wow. Community hunt complete! and it is my first CH i've done too so thank you Cleffa you really are a star!

    Edit - oh and just for information i did collect the egg on the 31st Jan but hatched it on the 2nd Feb so it was a bit annoying not getting to it in time for last month but as it fits the theme of this months CH too i am pleased.

    nickname the hatched Pokemon with their number. The first one that hatched is 001, the second one is 002, and so on. I don't have enough space in my PC, so I just go with the "hatch 5 then release" routine. However, I do have 1 empty spot in my box reserved for the last hatched Pokemon, just in case I want to stop hatching for a while.

    Only the lead has its ability activated, and since the lead is Munna, only Munna's Synchronize will work.

    On the topic of Linoone, I stared at it until my eyes bled, it really looks orange to me. Maybe a reddish brown... but not red. sorry
    And the flame on the tip of Charmander's tail is red (and yellow).
    So yeah, Charmander should be counted for the CH.

    As for Linoone, I already said it as well, but seems like people missed it

    if it's for the CH, I think you can only pick Solrock. I don't think Shiny Linoone has red at all, it looks more like brown with gold eyes.

    Hey guys. I'm a shiny hunter, and I'm new here.

    After 514 eggs with the shiny charm shiny Squirtle hatched. It's male and has careful nature and is very finicky. Can't upload a picture of it because I think the camera has gone on my macbook cause it says no camera detected on my imovie and iphoto. Now I have all the Kanto starters shiny. I think I'm going to go for cyndaquil next because it is the last of the johto starters I need shiny.

    Its not Bronzong but Stantler has been on my want list for awhile so its great that I finally have one. :] So now I'll be going into round 3 at Abundant shrine for Bronzong.. hopefully this doesn't end up being like my female combee hunt when I get every other shiny except the one I want the most lol. Anywayz, gratz on the shiny Squirtle and Cleffa and good luck everyone.

    So after transferring my shiny Chikorita from my Heart Gold to my Black version, I decided I would restart my Heart Gold file to try to get another of the shiny starters. Turns out that along with a decently workable nature that Chikorita has REALLY amazing IVs (three of them are between 28-31, no low numbers), so its on my list of Pokemon to EV. After one two hours' worth of SRing on the new Heart Gold file, I got my starter... ANOTHER CHIKORITA. XDDDD First time I've ever FACEPALMED while getting a shiny. While post a pic of him when I can.

    Also, my dream of chaining shinies has come to an end... my ex now wants every single gift he's ever given me back, which includes my Platinum cartridge. So long, Platinum. I'll miss you. :'( Was gonna use that game for the February community hunt but meh....

    Thats rather slack on your ex's part sorry to hear that.

    I've now reached a total of 720 eggs hatched for Venipede and I'm just about ready to start hatching the next batch. If I can get Venipede to shine soonish I think I'll take part in the CH and MM Skorupi or Duskull, I've always been a fan of their shiny sprites.

    Congrats on Chikorita, Stantler, Squirtle and any others I missed.

    Sorry for the late reply, I didn't have anything to update so I didn't want to post and spam the thread, but I'd happily race you both! I'm at 675 Snivys now, going to hit 700 before bed since I spent all day hatching Pokémon for the boyfriends National Dex completion!
    Tomorrow I'm hoping (no promises) to reach 850-900 Snivy's!

    Anyways, this is just a small update, congrats to everyone on your shinies, sorry I don't have time to congratulate you all but it's really early in the morning (4:40am...) and I haven't slept yet! I have a terrible sleep pattern... I'll be jumping into bed right after these 25 Snivy SR's!
    Good luck to all on your hunts also!

    Congrats to JohnNiles on Poliwag, pxm 1 on Sandile (4 shinies and you haven't even hit 8k encounters! Epic!), Royal Qeca on Mesprit, JohnNiles again on Lunatone, ShoesThief on Caterpie, Scrufox86 on Cleffa, Shiny Lord on Squirtle, City of Delusion on Stantler, Demysta on Chikorita,

    OMG.
    SHINY

    FRICKIN

    EEVEE,


    FUUUUUUUDGE.

    I was just watching Michelle Glavan on YT and I look down after an encounter and my Eevee was WHITE! I think for a split second I was dumbfounded because my only reaction was my jaw literally fell open. My volume wasn't on, but I guess the Youtube vid was loud enough that I didn't hear the sparkles

    It's just sitting here now. I haven't done a thing yet. I'll have to take a picture and stuff! MY FIRST COMPLETED HUNT!! And on the shiny I wanted most and the one I wanted to be my first completed hunt ever!

    This was also the first time I went back to hunting Eevee since I started my Platinum BQ on January 20th. And what a great choice it was to go back, because 41 encounters later, I have a shiny Eevee It's also male, which I wanted. It's also at night, which I wanted just because it's appropriate since he'll be evolving into an Umbreon.

    Gonna try to get a pic of it and probably a video too. Hope I don't kill it >.<





    EDIT: Thanks again, Shiny Lord

    And I caught it; no accidental running away or hitting the wrong move to OHKO it...And I saved (albeit minutes after, should have done it right away!). But I was under pressure because I was filming it (and I forgot to show that there wasn't a cheating device or w/e).

    But now, I have a question that I've asked before, but have been waiting till I caught it to ask it again. So...

    Here are my encounters:
    -6,193 encounters since my Litwick, according to my Trainers card (ie. Not counting double battles, just like my Litwick)
    -5,341 Eevee encounters (only counting Eevees during my hunting period and not other things like Audino, and not counting double encounters)
    -5,413 Eevee encounters (same as above, except counting the times a double Eevee encounter occurred)

    Which do you think I should count as how many REs this hunt took =\? I'm kind of leaning towards the first one, just to keep it the same as my Litwick...I know this is a stupid question and getting too technical, but I'm curious =\


    EDIT 2: Brave nature (+Atk, -Speed), so I guess not great for an Umbreon, although I do like to have all my Pokemon as offense (even defensive ones like Umbreon), so...Also, Somewhat of a Clown.

    IVs aren't great. Looks to be about HP: 19, Atk: 19, Def: 18, Sp. A: 7, Sp. D: 15, Spd: 28...But hey, it's a shiny!

    Lemme just put the picture of the encounter here and I'll cease this ridiculously long post x.X

    Or you could hold off for a few months and see if Gamefreak leaks designs for Gen VI eeveelutions. I'm hoping it happens. I'm saving mine for a while.

    About the accidental killing thing- I don't even lower health on mine. Catch rates seem pretty generous in Gen V. I just paralyze and start tossing pokeballs.

    Wish I could. He knows I practically worship my games and keep them hidden. Its okay. School has left me with almost no time to play that one. XD

    So far in my hunts, I'm at 250 eggs for Sneasel (school got in the way), and I'm on my second badge quest shiny in Heart Gold which I hope will be a Gastly! At around 100 encounters for that one. Hope I get quick hunts again!

    That's true, but Umbreon is my favorite pokemon and luckily enough, an awesome shiny. He just has to be an Umbreon Maybe I'll go after another if there's an Eeveelution I like a lot in the next gen

    When I get my DS back tomorrow, I'll go Shiny Breeding. This is first time I'll do that. Back then I wanted to breed a Shiny Zorua, but gave up after 10-20 eggs. I hope I won't give up again.

    Congrats on that Eevee, Cpchris, it certainly feels great when you obtain a shiny you really want. I find it feels even greater when you continue a previous hunt and you finally obtained that shiny you tried to go for previously but never obtained it! And Umbreon is an awesome shiny! = D

    I'll possibly hatch for Eevee one day, if I have the patience to do so because of the high step count, and go for possibly two just for Umbreon on Vaporeon!

    And congrats to anyone else who obtained their shinies, looks like that lucky streak is still going on!

    I just hatched 120 Aipom eggs and I just wanted to say that this hunt is absolute torture! I don't know if I'm just seeing what I want to see but when Aipom hatches sometimes the colouring of the hatch animation is really bright and tones the purple colour on Aipom pink so I keep thinking I hatch the shiny until I realise that it's purple. Darn you, game! >.<

    Well, I'm off, so good luck everyone!

Over 400 or so as of now. Hatching them on Black City, 5 at a time so I can get a neat hatching location.

    QUESTION: How do you guys and gals keep count on the number of eggs? You just deposit them on the PC until it's full or something? Also what's your favorite method of hunting? MM? RE? Solely with the aid of the charms? Or just go for the 100% chance ones like Dratini, Gible or Gyarados?

    Good luck to all!
    I don't exactly "count". I just make rough estimates on what I hatched. I estimated my charmander hunt because I had roughly 4.5 boxes worth.

    I think I'm dropping my Zorua hunt for a bit. Over 500 eggs or so and still nothing... I'm tired. I'm not that hardcore when it gets to hatch hundreds upon hundreds of them.

    I'm training a Watchog (@Illuminate with Foresight, Super Fang and Hypnosis) to level 43 to take to Village Bridge to hunt for Seviper and Zangoose on the dark grass. Wish me luck!

    And thank you so much to the ones that devoted time to my questions; you answered them perfectly

    Hello. Well i try different methos with my egg hatching. I fill up a certain number of boxes and then get either two or three new eggs from daycare man and then the remanining from the boxes until there are no eggs left. I then repeat. So right now i am getting two new eggs and three from the 6 boxes i have saved eggs in. It can work out to be 50+ eggs hatched by one box this way. So i don't have exact amounts i work out roughly how much i have hatched and give that number. So if i hatch 3 boxes and i find my shiny then it'll be around 150ish going by my current method.

    By the way congratulations on all recent shinies everyone i have read about so many since i posted about my shiny Cleffa. Oh and good luck to anyone else doing the CH this month i hope you get yours.
    Shinies are good.

    Most of my eggs get hatched on Route 3. However, I do have an Oddish that hatched in those underwater ruins which I thought was pretty cool. I wasn't aiming to hatch it there but it happened to be in my party at the time. I called it Byssi (for Abyssal Ruins).

    Currently at 7841 REs. I'm aiming to get something in under 12000 as, although the odds are 8192, the odds for 2 pokemon are 16200 and, as my previous shiny was at just over 4000, I figure I've got about 12000 left. >.<

    Might take a little longer though as I just started a save file on Soul Silver. Not gonna spend too much time on it, I just want to get a Groudon and that seemed like the quickest way (I don't like trading). So yeah, gonna try and speed through that too.
