    Congrats to JAWAYami on Ferroseed (sorry it wasn't that Tynamo you were repel tricking for), Markasdarkas on Registeel, and JAWAYami again on (a super-fast) Dratini!

    Got my video up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWvmaSMhnE0

    Also, when I was about to start training, I checked to make sure the encounters on my trainer card were what I thought they were (I write it down on the sheet I keep track of encounters on each day), and I apparently did 50 more encounters at Virbank than I originally thought

    So today, I did another 150 SRs for Piplup (ending on 2k total SRs), as well as 300 REs at Virbank, finishing up EV training my Umbreon in the process. After that, I decided to go fight Hugh in Driftveil since I never did that, and realized he was there when I was calling everyone (since I'd been calling Bianca about Eevee's happiness)...So I gave my original non-shiny Umbreon a lucky egg for the XP boost, since he was still only level 92, and then I gave my shiny Umbreon an Exp. Share. Then after that, I fought Alder and then went to do Black Tower for the first time, figuring I can train up my original Umbreon, train up my shiny Umbreon, get money, and get a shiny Gible all in one go. On tier 4 at the moment, and trying to only use my non-shiny Umbreon.

    But now I have to go to work (don't usually work at night ), so that's about all I'm getting done today.

    Good luck, everyone!

    As for my hunts: I'm now at 1875 Solosis eggs hatched in Black 2(and that's with MM+shiny charm odds...), 32,100 encounter in my HG badge quest, and 4800 soft resets for shiny Thundurus in White.

    Good luck guys.
    Ah, you don't?

    Ok, here it is. Way back in 2009 I first started SRing for Rayquaza in Ruby. One night, within about 10-15mins of turning on my game, it appeared. The problem, I had no Masterball. So, predictably, after a further 10mins of battling it, it beats my team, and I was very peeved off. On this day 3 years ago, I start my revenge hunt. 5 days. 5 days was all it took for it to appear. I had Masterball this time, so it didn't get away from me. Now it sits proudly at Lv100 in my Black 2 game.

    Wow, I've resorted to going through my Gen 4 games to try and find one. The GTS trades are either stupid, or ones I can't do.

    Well I completely forgot to include my story when I asked the question, so here it is XD
    December 2011 I decided to SR for a shiny HG starter. After checking all three pokemon for many months, a shiny chikorita finally decided to shine in June 2012. Worst. Hunt. Ever.

    But that really stinks. I've never personally lost a shiny, but I know I'd be very mad if I did.

    Well congrats to everyone on their recent shines! (I know, I really need to get on my computer to congratulate you all individually. I'll try to next time I post.) And best of luck to all of your hunts! I hope they are all short and fun

    Ok, fine, I'll trade my Jp Zekrom. As long as I have my MM Skarmory, I don't care.

    Oh, right. Yeah, I remember the shiny Rayquaza killing your team. But I didn't remember that you reclaimed it. That's why I never go after a shiny legendary without a master ball. :P



    Currently doing some SR'ing for shiny Thundurus. I wonder if it'll take as long as my other 'running' legendaries... (Cresselia took 6854 SR, and Mesprit took 5207 SR) I'm now at just under 4850 SR for shiny Thundurus.

    Good luck everyone! ^_^

    On the 23rd Jan I picked up a shiny Bagon from breeding w/ shiny charm. Only took 10-20 eggs. However even with the charm and a Jap Ditto I haven't had much luck. Even attack and speed EV training my pokemon I haven't found any shinies in the wild. Always looking forward to when I breed MM+shiny charm for my selected PWT teams.

    I'm trying continuously to hatch a Timid Zorua with a certain egg move. Does putting a restriction on the nature narrows down the possibility of it being shiny? Thank you

    Nothing to do with it.


    A little more about Groudon. So I had just caught a shiny Oddish and traded my Altaria and Oddish over to my brother to hold before I restarted the game in order to get Groudon again. I powered through the game and set up in front of Groudon. It's now the beginning of March 2004, and I begin resetting to the tune of 100 soft resets a day, going as high as 400 on weekends. Due to my GBA screen, I hsd a lot of trouble telling Groudon's color, so I'd have my sound on while I watched tv so I could listen for the shine. Every now and then I'd catch one, just to double check that I didn't miss the stars or something. By month three I was beginning to get really frustrated. It wasn't until June 21 that I landed my Groudon, throwing my master ball. It was mild, but it had a 31 in HP, so I was pretty happy overall. Groudon, like my other shinies, lives in Black 2 now and awaits transition into Pokemon X.

    If you mean using an Everstone, then it doesn't affect the chances of shininess at all

    Hurray! Hatched a shiny Porygon just now, after about 300 eggs. I'm very pleased with how it turned out and am hoping to use it in the PWT. This and my last 2 hunts have taken my success rate from below average to above average or at least average. I think I can now go back to some of the long hatch cycle hunts I abandoned. I will also take time off to raise some of the shinies I've stockpiled.

    Since people were discussing unusual places to hatch eggs, I decided to restart (being reasonably confident that I'd saved my game beforehand) and hatch it in the Poke Transfer Lab, the most high-tech place I can think of.

    I like stories about shiny legendaries the best- keep 'em coming.

Needless to say I was pretty angry but I set out on a reclaim mission knowing that it could take forever. This particular Turtwig came MUCH faster than the first one. After only 15 SRs I reclaimed my shiny Turtwig!!

    Lucky catch. Guess you'll be hiding your cartridge?

    On day 6 for Mesprit and around 2.2k encounters in Abundant Shrine, looks like my luck is cooling off again but I really hope Mesprit doesn't take too much longer. Gratz on the recent shinies like Turtwig, (15 SRs!? lucky you :]) Latios (My fav shiny legendary!) and Porygon! But doesn't that count for the CH? I see some pink. Good luck everyone!

    I couldn't really make up my mind.. I'd pegged shiny Porygon's flippers, nose, and tail as "lavender"... closer to purple than pink. But the more I stare at it, the less sure I am. It makes my head hurt if I look at it too long. If it is pink, it is purely luck on my part, because I tend to mistime or fail the community hunts.

    edit: Woooot, I think that's my first completed community hunt.

    A thought occurred to me: I'm not exactly big on banners and sigs, at least the huge ones, but aren't CHs ideal for sigging?

    Looks light pink to me. Granted, some systems colors look a little than others. and I'm looking at the sprite on a computer screen, rather than a DS...
    but I think I shall call it pink and congratulate you on completing the CH
