    600 eggs hatched so far in search of a shiny Cyndaquil with shiny charm. Hopefully it comes soon. Have not had a lot of time to hunt because school work is picking up. Would be nice to get it before Feb is over!

    For those doing badge quests, are you doing a pre and post E4 capture as well? Or just 8 badges, got to 1,301 encounters in my new hunt

    I never really understood the point of getting a shiny before and after the E4 on a BADGE quest.. I mean, its a bit unnecessary imo.

    I'm just doing one shiny before each badge. Speaking of which, I've lost almost all hope in the little golden runt, I'm barely interested, but I need to start this quest already.

    So I know I haven't been around in ages.......been pushing myself to finish this damn HG hunt and was telling myself I wouldn't post here until I had something good to post about but unfortunately I've now reached 11,100 REs and still nothing......

    Well done and good luck on everyone else's hunts though - I'll look back through all they pages I've missed in a minute. ^^;

    Speaking of BQs, I think I'll be doing one on my B2 game. As you know, I've been breeding teams for a few friends. We're doing Gen 5 Scramble challenges. I think I'll take my Scramble challenge and add a BQ component to it.
    So my challenge will be to get through the game with this pre-determined team AND obtain a shiny before each gym + E4.
    Just need to finish breeding the teams for this crazy plan
    1.5 teams left to breed and we're good to go

    Quick question, on your BQs when you are hunting do you save after the hours of searching or do you save before you hunt and then just turn it off?

    I might do a BQ but I'm unsure because I usually have bad lucky with random encounter shinies - and tend to get bored easily. But when i'm going for my Litwick I save in the tower before I hunt and then when I'm tired of running back in fourth I just turn it off - I hate seeing my play time so high (for some reason I always think it's going to stop working once I hit a certain play time xD)

    I'm still back and forth on a BQ or a nuzlocke :c

    Thanks for the congrats, guys! It has come to my attention that I do not have access to the Iceberg Chamber as I thought... As such, I'll be doing a mixture of bird-hunting in Platinum (now off-sig, casual), and resuming Tauros MM in Black. This will be until March 22nd(ish) when I can get that Iceberg Key...

    OMG! Finally my very FIRST (not including events) shiny Legendary pokemon..... I am so happy! I began SRing Latios again a few hours ago and well it finally shone for me!
    I caught it in a luxury ball very quickly too which was surprising.

    Here are the IV's which are not very impressive at all but oh well i wasn't planning on competitive play anyway.

    I'm definitely not doing a pre E4 capture, but I have considered a post E4 capture for fun, like Palkia or Dialga. Chances are I won't, and it will just be something out there for the future.

    Once again, it's been a long time since my last post, so hopefully a general congrats will do! I've managed to do a bit of hunting for my BQ, though, and I'm now at nearly 9400 RE's. I'm hoping to get to 9800 today, so I can be less than 1000 from topping Machop, but I'll go for more if I have time. Good luck everyone, until next time!

    Congrats to YNCRN on Litwick, Scrufox86 on Latios, shadorai on Tranquill, and Crimson_Blazer on Rufflet!

    And thanks Roseheart95 and Heliotrope. I forgot about C-Gear being a live function, but that makes sense. I always like to turn C-Gear on just in case, though the only 2 times I've passed people have been outside of home (once at school, once in the car), but I like to be able to streetpass, so I don't have pokemon on anyways when I go out...So I guess I might as well turn it off :x

    I kind of do, but it's not like I'm going to condemn people who do it either - "Congrats on your chained shinies, even though you really didn't deserve them"...No...It's just that, even though chaining has its own challenges, it can still make it a lot easier to find a few shinies in one go. Just like I don't anticipate ever getting the shiny charm, I also don't think I'll ever really chain...At least not as serious shinies - maybe I'll try chaining shinies I already have at the time or something. That's just me, people are free to do whatever they wanna do and I'm not gonna hold it against em or think less of them/their shinies for doing it.


    Today I only did 350 REs at Virbank and 50 SRs for Piplup =\ Should have been able to get more done but I got distracted >.<

    Good luck everyone

    When I can't feel bothered to hunt the Johto Starters all I need to do is look at RaichuArcanine's sig.

    260 REs in the Giant Chasm and 90 SRs. I may consider resuming my badge quest, but it takes too long to Soft Reset on it...

    EDIT: On teh rubber band thing, isong them helps. But the buttons may brake. On my Groudon hunt they broke after most likely 300 SRs.

    Lol I'm glad that my signature motivates someone(I have more pics of each of the starters if you want to see them?). If there's no shiny growlithe in this box, i'll store five boxes of eggs. I've decided to breed Eevee on Black 2 and trade it over to White 2 for my BQ, as hunting in Castelia Park is too annoying for me. So the remaining five boxes will be Eevee. I happen to have a DW female Eevee too, so hopefully it'll have it's hidden ability. Good luck as always.

    For soft reset shinies, does placing a rubber band on the 3DS to make soft reseting easier hurt the system? It always has the rubber band on the L and R buttons, so does it make those buttons not work by having it for so long if the hunt goes on for a while?

    My Kyogre hunt went on for almost a month (if not more) and my DS was fine. Also, I used the same DS to hunt for Ho-oh, which took a while as well. It should not hurt it.

    As for me, however, I am starting to hate the fact that I chose to do my Eeveelution hunt... I'm trying to get at least 1 more RE Eevee before switching to just MMing the rest. I am over 4,400 Eevees now in Castelia Park with the Shiny Charm and it is taking forever! :'(

    Anyways, congrats on all recent shinies! I would have loved to participate in this months CH, but Eevee has my full attention until I get 9 of them. :/

    Alas, 670 or so eggs and still no Wobbuffet; counting up all the eggs I've hatched in past failed CHs, I'm way over the odds now...

    The main risk to using a rubber band is that the L + R buttons *could* get stuck. Not sure how common that is, but it could happen

    I personally do not! While I agree that they shouldn't be included in things like CH's, or maybe you need to find 2 shinies for it to count, because once you reach a certain point the odds are very low, I still think chained shinies are just as legitimate the same way I think MM'd or Shiny Charmed shinies are! Sure, while I've seen that, with practice, people do it easily, getting 2-5, maybe more shinies of the same Pokémon, I also know from my own experiences that it's not that easy for everyone and therefore I say we shouldn't judge and just be happy for them. Besides, no matter how you obtain a shiny, just succeeding and having it in your possession is always special, no matter how legitimate other people think it is! :3

    __________________________________________________ _______________________________________

    Anyways, I'm getting off topic, I came to update since it's been a few days! I'm now at 1300 and counting Snivy SR's, and I'm feeling proud with my slow but sure progress! Roughly 100 a day, and although that could slow down eventually (maybe not!) it's nice to be raking in the SR's while I feel motivated!

    I also started the Virbank Complex race on the 19th and have managed to do nearly 2000 RE in 3 days, not bad considering! I have yet to do any today though so I'm going to aim for 2500-3000!

    I'm also thinking of restarting Platinum soon so I can SR for Chimchar, since my plan to RE on Route 203 while I SR Snivy didn't work out, I may as well go for Chimchar like I originally planned. But I will go back to Route 203 either during my BQ or post-game! I'm determined to get something, hopefully Shinx or Abra! I wouldn't be doing very many SR's since I'm super focused on Snivy and Virbank Complex, but I figured even if I squeeze in 10-20 SR a day, that's 70-140 SR a week, which is at least a head start for when I finally get Snivy and move on to making Chimchar my main hunt!

    Anyways, good luck to those hunting, and may your Pokémon hunts (and maybe some randoms?!) shine soon!

    Many congrats guys, especially Nidoran(m) since that's what I'm hoping for too at the moment!

    This final hunt is at 2,750 RE's and I've seen 33 Yanma (2 of which were consecutive which made me laugh). I defo think I'll probably see 100 Yanma before a shiny but it's made the hunt more interesting haha.
