    Not true actually XD I did get a Shiny Klink in Black in November after only 150 REs! Thought gustavo had a 14,000+ hunt in there.
    Also, wow, 2 and 1/2 days and that many REs...well done on the amount of REs.

    As for me, no luck yet. 493 SRs for Snivy, would've been 500 were it not for Captain America and reading the Hunger Games...9,500 REs in Eterna Forest though.

    Good luck, and may the odds ev-*shot*
    Yeah, just good luck and a huge congrats to every single shiny caught recently!

    How can one see this community hunt? Is it in the first post of the threat or after in a random post? I'm interested! (EDIT: Saw it, nevermind!)

    Question: Do you use anything beyond Illuminate to attract wild pokémon in RE? Like Sweet Scent, for instance. And can someone say why they deleted the effect of the White Flute?! Wasn't it perfect as it was back in RSE? Sadly, there's no other item to increase encounter rate, is there? I had the impression the Pure Incense did but it has the contrary effect... I mean, they have a Cleanse Tag! What purpose does the secondary effect of the item serve?!

    Don't disappoint me, X/Y! We need White Flute's effect back or another item!

    Good luck on your hunts, fellow Serebii members

    At 112 eggs for Wobbuffet, but I've been breeding some Basculin for an adamant one, so now I have to hatch through about ten or so of them before I can resume hatching Wobbuffet. I wouldn't really mind, except for their huge step requirement...

    Inspired by this community hunt, I'm doing a Zangoose!

    Going around Village Bridge's dark grass with:

    Watchog ("Meduseld" w/Illuminate - Hypnosis, Super Fang, Foresight, Sand Attack) - Hunter
    Volcarona ("Muspelheim" w/Flame Body)
    4 Zorua eggs for the Zorua Egg.

    Saved in front of the Daycare before receiving them. Try to catch a shiny while having eggs in my party for the Zorua in mind. If the Zoruas are normal, pick new ones up again, hunt for Zangoose; repeat ad infinitum.

    Yay!

    A shiny Hoothoot appeared (again) in my Platinum just now. I am happy with the great shiny, even though I have one on HG already...I was watching Arrow when it shone, but I ran out, caught it and saved. It also has the same nature as Starly, a Jolly nature. It took 9,852 REs for it to shine, but I kinda wanted Buneary to shine...but no complaints from me!
    I now move on to Mt Coronet, but some business must be done. Oh, pics up tomorrow too!

    Nitpick: Does Hoothoot count for the CH? If so, CH Complete!.

    That is a good question. Hoothoot's eyes look more red than orange, so I think we can count it.

    I'm still working on teams for my friends. About to start work on a Chikorita. Hopefully I can get these all done over the next week so I can start some real hunts again, instead of hoping to get lucky while doing this current project

    pics are not required for the CH.
    Regirock would not count, as it doesn't seem to have any red or pink.

    Yeah, just good luck and a huge congrats to every single shiny caught recently!
    I also had the shiny charm in Black 2, so concerning odds, that's easily the worst luck I've had with a shiny. And thanks, I actually managed to total my RE count over this weekend to be 2400, plus even more that I can't remember from Friday.

    My total RE count is 6688, so I'm coming close to the odds, which I expected. I'm still a little bummed by the delay for Fire Emblem: Awakening, which I hoped to be playing now, so I'm hoping for a shiny soon. It would be great compensation. Otherwise, I'll just have to wait patiently. Congrats on the recent shinies, Zangoose, Hoothoot, and Drifloon are ones I can remember, and good luck everyone!

    Hi all, just dropping in. This Saturday, Feb. 9, will be one month since I began my shiny Wobbuffet hunt, and I've still got nothing. I'm just hoping it won't take seven months like it did for wingull. I don't even keep track of the number of encounters, just the days that have passed. I'm hunting in the Dark Cave in HeartGold with a level 14 illuminate volbeat with a smoke ball, so I'm getting constant encounters. Hopefully I'll get a shiny Wobbuffet soon. I wouldn't mind geodude, zubat, or golbat either since I haven't had those, but I'm hoping I don't end up with a shiny graveller because I already have one that evolved into golem.

    If I get Wobbuffet within the next six weeks, I may do buneary next for Easter (March 31). If not, I'll do Marill next, then buneary.

    Sorry about that Solrock, Chapter =\

    No news yet about the hunt/race for Snivy yet, but I figured I'd post a quick update. Still going strong for Snivy, and I'm determined to place in this race, even if I get last place

    Congrats on everyone's recent shines! I'd congratulate you all individually, but that is a bit hard on a tablet. If I have time to get on my computer in the next few days I'll be sure to get all the names.

    Well good luck to everyone on their hunts, and I leave you all with a little question I was curious about. What was your longest hunt and how long did it take you?

    Dunno if any of the old Shiny Pokemon Club crowd still post in these.

    Recently cleared Black Tower and got my shiny Gible, it is now a Lv50 Garchomp, gonna use the Join Avenue to up it's attack and speed, even if it means dropping it's HP. I've already done that with my shiny Rayquaza (WHICH HAS A STORY BEHIND IT IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED).

    Got a TON of other shinies too.

    EDIT: Community Hunt Complete
    Reason: I got the Gible yesterday, and it does have a reddish colour on it.

    EDIT AGAIN: Never mind. It doesn't count.

    YET ANOTHER EDIT: I see Helio is still here, how have you been? I was just looking at your Join Avenue discussion with Shine, can you recieve characters over Wi-Fi?

    For me it was Croagunk, which I started hunting for in January 2012 and finished in the following May and took 3281 eggs to get it.

    I've now hatched 1260 eggs in my hunt for a shiny Venipede and is over the shiny charm odds. Dunno when it'll show up, it's all good 'cause I've been making pretty speedy progress I think.

    Once this is done I'm uncertain as to what I'll do next, my three choices are either:
    - MM Skorupi or Duskull for the CH
    - SR for some of the other legendaries in Black 2
    - Start a badge quest on HeartGold

    Congrats on Zangoose, Hoothoot, Drifloon and all the other shinies that everyone's gotten as of late.

    Helio may like to hear this, but I've decided to get back into shiny hunting after who knows how long. My first hunts will be Lapras on Black, Skarmory on Black 2 and, if I decide to get a 3rd DSlite (my current one has a loose hinge), I'll go for Snivy too.

    Hey, Pink Lapras - haven't seen you around for ages! I'm doing ok. ^_^ Yeah, if someone visits your dream world, or you do a wi-fi or GTS trade with someone, then that person's avatar will visit your Join Avenue (and you can let them open up a shop).

    I'm good too, trying to find a reasonable GTS trade for a female Japanese Skarmory so I can actually start that hunt. My other hunts are Lapras and Articuno atm.

    My longest hunt? Helio knows this very well, my Rayquaza. If I didn't have work tomorrow I'd tell you a small story about it.

    EDIT: I actually put an offer up, search for a level 51-60 male Durant. Name is Daniel.

    Groudon was my longest hunt, clocking in at nearly four full months of soft-resetting. That was insane.
