    So, funny story. So back in May, I was playing Black and was looking to complete the pokedex. The worst part of that? Finding those dang evolutionary stones. Basically, I was reduced to riding around Twist Mountain Repeling and trying to find the stones in dust clouds. I jokingly thought "I'm going to find a shiny before I get the stones I need." Guess what happens next? I find a shiny. But it wasn't an Excadrill- it was a Gurdurr. My last Repel wore off, I was leaving the cave to get more, and there he was.

    The moral of the story- never give up on your main goal, and good things will come to you. Also, never use an Escape Rope.
    This is where my signature goes.

    Oh wow! after 2369 RE's in victory road i have found and captured a shiny Druddigon! And i have noticed that it has a pink tongue so Community Hunt Complete!
    I cannot believe the shiny luck i've had this last week. I think i will go back to MMing some more pokemon for the CH.

    Congratulations to everyone who've gotten shinies recently and good luck to everyone still hunting!
    Shinies are good.

    I've decided to hunt on Soul Silver for mainly shiny Mareep but Bellsprout, Rattata, or even Wooper would be nice. I'm also still going strong for shiny Cresselia so hopefully it shines soon. Gratz to JohnNiles on that epic shiny Skarmory (I really want one of those now lol), ChaoticInverse on Cyndaquil, Shadowkrow on HootHoot and Red La Derp on the second Psyduck! Maybe we should race since we're both aiming for Mareep :]? Good luck everyone!
    I would love to race! Sounds like fun~

    ^ Alright, good luck! :]

    Gratz to Jonny7197 on Duosion and Scrufox86 on Druddigon, really cool shinies there. :]

    I'm now at day 6 for Cresselia and I'm hoping it shines soon since I noticed that all my completed SR hunts have lasted 7 days or less and I'm hoping Cresselia doesn't break that chain lol but we'll see. Good luck everyone.

    You went shiny hunting and at the great marsh, and you didn't expect that to happen?

    If you go hunting there, you should know that something like this was bound to happen.

    I don't think he was hunting though.. He was probably looking for a Yamna to catch and a random shiny Wooper appeared. Sorry to hear, IZ. =[

    Yea I went to get a yamna for my team and that BS happened. I'm sure everyone knows not to go hunting in the great marsh or safari zone. That was the first shiny I've dunces in like a year too.

    I have finally resumed my SS BadgeQuest, and I'm at 445 SRs right now. I really hope Cyndaquil shines soon

    ANywyas, congrates on the Duosion and Druddigon you two, and every else's recent hunts.

    My humanity will corrode away... Until I'm just a monster...

    Just a quick question, maybe it will give me a bit of motivation to start some hunts I've wanted to:
    How many REs does it usually take you to get a Shiny?

    What can I do with a hacked Shiny? I have a black Charizard, caught in a luxury ball (which is impossible unless it was a dream world charizard, which it is not)

    Release it. It's useless. Unless if you still want to use it, hit just don't trade it.

    On average, the chances should be...
    1 in 8,192 if you're just running through the grass/water/caves/whatever or encountering a stationary pokemon(with a few exceptions, such as Zekrom/Reshiram)
    1 in 2,048 if the pokemon is born from two pokemon who have different nationalities in any 4th generation game.
    1 in 1,365.3 if your pokemon is born from two pokemon who have different nationalities in any 5th generation game.
    1 in 2,730.6 if you're running through grass/water/caves/ect or encountering stationary pokemon if you have an item called the shiny charm.
    1 in 1024 if you're breeding two pokemon with different nationalities in any 5th generation game if you have said shiny charm.
    The chance of a shiny chained with the poke rader is as follows, with the highest chances capping out after you've found 40 pokemon of the same species in a row.
    Chance = (14747 - 40*ChainNumber)/2621440(41-ChainNumber)

    You can use any Pokémon. You just have to get a Shiny before each gym.

    230 REs in Giant chasm and 90 SRs for the Johto Starters. If I egt something to shine in the Chasm. I will begin Kyurem.

    EDIT: I have to double my effort for the next couple o' hours. Going away for the whole evening with a group. Praying for Metang to be nice and grace my screen.

    Quick question, would shinies caught in Pokemon Colosseum count for the CH? Because I'm thinking of trying for a shiny Aipom... plus the chance is double than normal, because they don't always retain shininess when captured, so it'd take a lot of catching, checking, then resetting XD< but I fancy giving myself a challenge.

    I will not be counting Colosseum shinies, sorry

    For our next hunt, we'll be going with something more restricted.
    Also, voting ends Saturday the 23rd. I'll post the result Sunday =)

    March CH Vote (As always, please PM your choice to avoid clutter in the thread):

    Option 1: Obtain a Bug or Grass type shiny via MM/RE/SR (must have the typing at time of capture/hatching)
    Option 2: Obtain a shiny via MM (must have an EGG move at time of hatching)
    Option 3: Obtain a shiny via SR
    Option 4: Obtain a shiny via RE in Giant Chasm (Cave and Forest areas both count)
