    EDIT: Hatched 25 eggs today. I'm curious, how do you hatch them? I hatch 5, release them straight away if they're not shiny, then get another 5, repeat...
    I save in front on the day care man, refuse the first egg (since I've heard that the first egg generated will always be the same in B/W 2), collect five eggs, and then fly off to the join avenue to have my nursery hatch them. I have a lv10 nursery, so all my eggs can hatch instantly. It's very quick. ^_^

    ... but I'm now at 2610 Solosis eggs hatched, and that's with both the masuda method and shiny charm odds.

    I'm also at 5720 Thundurus soft resets, and 150 encounters for my next Heart Gold badge quest shiny (I'm hunting in route 48).


    Good luck guys.



    EDIT: Oh, oh! Yes! After 2614 eggs my shiny Solosis has hatched! n__n

    He's male, Bold natured and has his DW ability regenerator (although magic guard is probably better, I'm gad it didn't get overcoat). And as you can see from the picture I nicknamed him Jelly Baby (since Reuniclus always reminded me of one for some reason, and I grew up watching Doctor Who :P )

    Picture: Care for a shiny jelly baby? I sure would!

    He also has some bloody wonderful IV's:

    Solosis
    Bold nature, capable of taking hits
    HP: 27
    Att: 11
    Def: 31
    SpA: 26
    SpD: 31
    Speed: 30
    HP Water 70 (ooh, max power hidden power... can I use this in any way?)

    With him hatched, that completes the shiny team I'd been gathering for my new Black play through. I plan on SR'ing for a shiny Tornadus once I complete the game.

    Also, does shiny Solosis count for the community hunt, since it does have that little pink, um, thing on its head?

    That would be fun, Im hoping to get to 3000 eggs by Sunday before my uni work builds up again (if it doesnt shine by then......) so it will be good to share some motivation.

    Congratulations on your totodile btw!! And good luck with trapinch.

    Oh and Cocoadragon did a HG BQ and SRd for the goldenrod eevee and got a shiny vaporeon iirc out of it so I would say it can.

    Wow, a lot of pages piled up while I was gone. I skimmed them, and didn't see anyone announce their completion of the CH. (For that matter, I didn't see that many completed hunts >.<)
    Don't forget to write "CH complete" if you want to see your name in the OP.

    @ whoever asked: yes, the HG Goldenrod Eevee can be shiny.

    @Pink Lapras: in BW2 the first egg is always the same when you start the game, so it does matter a little when you're doing the collect 5 eggs/ hatch/ reset thing

    I've been super busy, so haven't gotten much done in pokemon. Still working on a non-shiny drifloon for a friend : /

    Just noticed shiny Beldum has a red eye, so community hunt completed I guess. Hopefully I'll get a pokemon that suits the criteria more next time..

    Congratulations!. Does Chimchar not count for the community hunt?

    Congrats on the Totodile, Venipede, Drifblim, Clefairy and Beldum and any others that I've missed. Good luck on your hunts everyone.
    Don't worry i hit 2904 RE's at route 14 before finding my shiny Drifblim. I also have the shiny charm and went over the odds. Also i have hatched many eggs on a collective hunt with various pokemon since my shiny cleffa and i have not gotten any more of my shiny starters. I'd really like to get my shiny Treecko so it'll count toward the community hunt as well.

    Keep going you'll get your shiny!
    Shinies are good.

    Congratulations to any shinies that have been obtained since my last post!

    I hatched 30 eggs of Gastly and nothing shined. So now I'm onto Vulpix, for some reason, egg moves wont work with Vulpix .

    I'm considering attempting Heatran eventually, but it's not something I wanna set as my main hunt. Whilst REing the Desert Resort, I hit 100 REs. Making it one of my longest hunts so far along with Groudon (Which I've been doing on and off for around a year or so now. Me and my friend doubt he'll ever shine.) and Volcarona (Shows I'm not a active hunter). I realised how awesome a shiny Krokorok looks. So hoping I'll get a Sandile here, but I would take Trapinch over Sandile ANY DAY.

    Also, now my "N's Pokémon" box of my PC is more full thanks to my hunt. I must have found around 8 by now.

    Saaatoshi!

    Er... how do you mean? Are you sure the moves you're trying to breed onto it are actually egg moves?


    I've been doing doing some EV-training on my new shiny Solosis... and I've just noticed that it's caught pokerus at some point (probably from my shiny Simipour that's in my party) so now I have no idea what its EV's are. Great. That was a nice waste of time... >_<

    I'm also now at 5820 soft resets for shiny Thundurus.

    By the way, does my shiny Solosis count for the community hunt? If so, then community hunt complete!

    Would Her across or Aipom count for the CH? If so I might be completing the CH soon

    I looked at Breeding Moves on Bulbapedia, it worked for Gastly. Maybe I selected the wrong Vulpix or something... *shrug*

    And as a vague update, 1 egg for Vulpix.

    Saaatoshi!

    If you explain to us what you use for breeding the Vulpix (mainly their moves and their gender), it can help us determine why the moves are not getting passed


    As for me, just did 2 more hours of SR-ing Mesprit, still no shiny. I guess that 1 day Tepig and 5 days Kyurem really took a lot of luck out of me XD

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    I have a Japanese Ditto breeding with the Vulpix. The Vulpix is female and has the moves:

    Tail Slap
    Heat Wave
    Flare Blitz
    Imprison

    Only males can pass along egg moves, that's your problem.

    edit - Yes, Solosis counts. Aipom also counts. I'm not sure about Heracross, it looks purple to me.

    Ah, you're using a female! Only males can pass down egg moves.

    Oh, okay. Thanks. I feel a tad stupid now. -w-'

    Knowing me, I'll forget to get a male. So I'm now hatching a male.

    I'm praying Turtwig will shine on my Platinum BQ. Asking the shiny gods will just anger them... It just takes forever to get your starter on the D/P/PL Games.

    And good luck to everybody on their hunts!

    EDIT: I'm not sure if this is to be mentioned here but, I lost a shiny Zubat while recording a video on Pokémon Tower Defense. Which I believe is still the 1/8192 chance. Not so happy.

    I have done 120 eggs for my Nidoran M, but have pretty much lost motivation.

    Since Nidoran, both genders, have red eyes; am I correct in believing that one would count for the CH if one should shine in a timely manner?

    So I know that because of the broken RNG in Emerald, SR hunts are messed up, but if I were to do a RE, would that any different? I really like 3rd generation pokemon and I'd love to hunt in my Emerald. Thank you to anyone who can answer that for me.

    Well back to training in Emerald and hunting for Snivy. Good luck everyone!
