    ^ No, everstone doesn't effect the chances. Also, remember to edit your post so the thread isn't cluttered with one-liners.

    Ugh! Cresselia hates me. ._. I've been hardcore SRing for it and I'm sure I'm over 10k SRs for it at this point. Unlike Mandibuzz, I know for sure it can be shiny so no giving up on this one! My Wynaut hunt is also at about 4k-ish encounters and I hope It'll shine before this month ends but I don't know.. looks like I'll be capping at 6 shinies this month which is not bad, not bad at all. Good luck everyone.

    Hi again everyone!

    My average of two shinies per month continues in 2013!!

    After a fairly long hunt with Litwick (1,024 eggs) my newest shiny decided to be a bit quicker in hatching.

    After only 133 eggs, I have my newest shiny team member!

    And here he is!

    With video as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sUqsE6Qtec

    Congrats to everyone on their recent shinies, and Shiny Lord, stick with it, your Cyndaquil will hatch soon. I'll say before egg 1,600. Those ones are the roughest though, because your mind starts wandering and you wonder if it'll be over 2,000, maybe 3,000? But don't worry, it won't be. It'll be soon - just keep plugging away!

    And my sig has been updated!

    Congratulations on all the new shinies!

    Though I didn't participate in the last CH for February (I was quite busy...ugh, school) I will try to take part in the next one, and I think I'll be hunting for a Shiny Beedrill through MM, since I already have a Shiny Butterfree, I figured I'd try to complete the set :3

    Good luck on the hunting!

    Congrats to HGaddict on Charmander, TheFonz on Paraspxm1 on Elekid, RedJirachi on Moltres, GoldenHouou on Timburr, JohnNiles on Chansey, Cocoadragon on Suicune, TheEliteEmpoleon on Riolu, Pokemaster13 on Charmander, Blisseytank on Shellos, Cocoadragon on Shinx (jealous!), Codface on Dratini, It Is I on Nidoran and YNCRN on Zangoose!

    Sorry if I spelt anything wrong, I'm all shaky because I just finally got a shiny! I was like, 1 day away from not getting any in February!
    Also, last minute community hunt complete!

    I decided, as mentioned in one of my previous 2 posts, to restart Platinum and SR for Chimchar, but only do about 10-20 soft resets a day so I can focus more on Snivy and my Virbank Complex hunt. So today I restarted Platinum, got a cool ID just for fun (41311) and started SRing.

    After 11 soft resets, I look down just in time to see a beautiful shiny Chimchar exit it's Pokéball!
    He's male, quirky natured and capable of taking hits. Awwh man but I love him so much! This is my quickest hunt ever, beating Cyndaquil by 2 soft resets.
    I can move on to my 2nd BQ hunt before I've even finished Snivy, which I started in January, haha!

    Anyways, pictures!

    I'm off to update my shiny card and name this little guy :3

    EDIT: On second thought, anyone got any good names for a Purpleish-Pink male Infernape? Since that's what it'll eventually be. He's named Flare for now, but I wouldn't mind something better if I can find it!

    EDIT 2!: Oops, of course! I knew there was a reason I originally had Rotom as Badge 3, I just got overexcited to get one, ah well. Eterna Forest or Route 203 it is! I'll go back to Rotom straight after I beat Gardenia, thank you Cocoadragon >3<

    Wow congrats on all these great shinies recently everyone!

    Up to 4,837 REs at Route 32 in my SS BQ. I doubt I'll get anything for that done today since I have an essay for English due tomorrow, a history test, and soccer practice.

    Good luck everybody!

    I've decided on what I'm going to hunt for the March CH. In Soulsilver I'm hunting for Exeggcute useing headbutt in Safari Zone Gate(Pineco would be just as good). For Platinum I'm hunting Budew, I've dicided to do a BQ for this game( got tired of SRing for a starter though ). In White I'm hunting for Durant( It would be awsome if I got it because it's a cool shiny). Finally in White 2 is my secret hunt.

    @TheMaster327 I've looked at your sig and I think the only reason you can't get Regice is because you're useing Black 2, but you can go after Registeel since you have unlocked it's key. You would need to have White 2 at that same point, since that is the only version that can get the iceberg key. I'm unsure how you would be able to bring the iceberg key to your Black 2. I hope you don't mind me trying to help.

    Edit: @TheMaster327 Oh! Well I just was not sure, but it's good to know you're getting the key.

    My brother has White 2. He's at uni right now, but he'll be back for the Easter holidays, so I'll be getting the Iceberg Key then...

    Hey everybody! After an unknown amount of soft resets (and many months of hunting), at little while ago at just past 12am, Kecleon decided to show me its 'true colours'.

    shiny Kecleon appears in Ruby!

    So now I just need shiny Castform to have caught all the soft reset-able shinies in Ruby/Sapphire. ^_^

    In other shiny hunting news, I'm now at 8780 SR for shiny Thundurus, 2100 encounters in my Heart Gold BQ, and 2700 encounters in Crystal. I'm also SR'ing for shiny Landorus in my Japanese Black.


    Good luck. And congrats on all the new shinies everyone.

    Congrats to YNCRN on Zangoose, Lunafloon on Chimchar, JAWAYami on Tauros, Heliotrope on Kecleon, and ChaChi on Patrat and Regirock!

    Once more, I did 50 Piplup SRs and 200 Virbank REs. It helped that, again, I was recording a Harry Potter movie on my laptop (to create an MP4 version to put on my MP3 player), so my laptop was out of commission for most of the night. Otherwise, I'd have probably gotten distracted ;_;

    So right now, I'm at 2,700 for both my Platinum BQ and Growlithe hunt, so I'm still far away from reaching the odds. And seeing as I did get my other shinies before the odds (granted, REing Eevee was pretty strenuous, so 6k REs could very well equate to 12k+ normal REs imo >.<), so I really can't complain...Though my Platinum version doesn't know I've gotten my shinies within the odds, so maybe I'll get lucky there Regardless, I still have plenty of patience left on these hunts, since they're pretty early still, at least in terms of how many SRs/REs I've done.

    I am hoping to get Piplup sooner though, as I'd like to finally have both my first BQ shiny and my first SRed shiny, plus I'll be able to move on to faster hunts after that...Hoping for Shinx first, so that I can go back to route 201 where I have a 50% chance for a Starly, or (on the bright side) a 50% chance for an HM slave!

    Like always, good luck everyone!

    I actually got this back on the first, but I have been too lazy to check its stats or log in until now. As I was eating lunch, I got a shiny skorupi on my shiny charm game.

    She is female, jolly and has sniiper as her ability.
    IVs are HP 29, ATK 27, DEF 30, SpATK 28, SpDEF 6 and SPD 2

    It is a shame about the special defense and speed, but oh well, still very cool. I was going to breed for good IVs but I got the shiny earlier than I expected.

    Next month I plan to reset for a shiny Volcarona. I saved it so I could soft reset for it after I got the shiny charm.

    1,600 eggs hatched in search of shiny Cyndaquil with shiny charm and it still refuses to shine. Hopefully it shines soon so I can complete my collection of shiny Johto Starters. I really want to move on to something else as well and I'm sick of seeing non shiny Cyndaquil.

    YES YES YESS! On the last day of February, shiny Cresselia appears!! Bringing my total shinies this month up to 7!

    http://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/...psa8d3fb29.jpg

    This took 14 days making it my longest completed SR hunt and my sync decided to actually work for me this time so it has a bold nature which I'm super happy about. So that's now 3 out of 7 lengendaries down.. 4 more to go and Registeel is up next. Thanks to those who wished me luck and gratz on the recent shinies!

    I am up to 601 eggs for my hidden ability Nidoran M. However, even though I could start either a Volcarona or Yanma MM at any moment I am going to see this Nidoran hunt to the very end. That being said, I am cautiously pessimistic that I won't be able to participate in the March CH.

    Congrats to;City of Delusion on Cresselia, SEGludian on Skorupi, ChaChi on Patrat and Regirock, Heliotrope on Kecleon, Codface on Dratini, YNCRN on Zangoose, Lunafloon on Chimchar, JAWAYami on Tauros and Absol, and anyone else farther back than page 178. Finally good luck on continuing and future hunts.

    Oh no i am not going to get another CH shiny.... I have been MMing Treecko for ages but no shiny. I have hatched almost 1000 eggs for Treecko. And i am starting to wonder if using an everstone while MMing is affecting it. I know people say it doesn't but it seems to be taking longer to MM a shiny while using an everstone than not.

    I have a few questions for those who have done SRing for legendaries. Do you just keep SRing for days until you get it to shine? How do you stay sane? I am going to try to SR Cresselia but i just see some people post on here about SRing a shiny legendary and then a few days later they have another and then another. It is seeming to be easy for people on here. Ok what about using two DS's do people on here do that?

    Oh and congratulations to all recent shinies: City of Delusion on Cresselia, SEGludian on Skorupi, ChaChi on Patrat and Regirock, Heliotrope on Kecleon, Codface on Dratini, YNCRN on Zangoose, Lunafloon on Chimchar, JAWAYami on Tauros and Absol (wow two great shinies there!).

    All my hunts are done with everstone, and I've had both super long and super short hunts. probably just a coincidence that you're getting long hunts when you use it

    Congrats on Cresselia! I bet it feels awesome after such a long hunt! - Also congrats to everyone else and their new shinies!

    I decided that I'm going to RE on Black 2 for Cottonee for the CH and on white 2 I'm going to breed for a Shroomish!
    I haven't given up on Litwick though, that darn stubborn candle... I'll RE a few today once I play some Skyrim. :c

    Well February ended up being a good month for many, which is nice to hear! My Virbank Complex hunt is going well. Next month I might try Volcarona in B2 for the Community Hunt, but I will focus mainly on my quest.

    With my random luck on Paras in LG, now I'm doing some training with Mr Mime and Blastoise in Pokémon Tower. I'd really love a shiny Gastly. I used to have one in Diamond when I was a silly little freshmen in high school and didn't understand how awesome shinies are...and it got deleted

    The worst part is that it feels like I'm gonna see one, and then every Gastly looks blue to me for the instant it's in shadow hahaha
