    I finally got my shiny electrike that I lost!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8TdkEMpvxA

    I'm so happy, though the darn thing did NOT want to be captured. The time on my Nikon's video nearly ran dry ;c;.
    I named her Loyalty. Not really sure why but I feel I should probably train this one.

    Congrats on the recent shinies!
    I'm sorry for your loss Master Leo :C hopefully he will reappear soon!
    I'm currently at 1500 hunts for petilil. I ended up searching in Lostlorn forest.
    Looking at all these shiny hunt petilils getting it before 1k makes me sad :c

    @2rsa Haha I've read a couple of stories of that happening to other people too! There must be something in the water lol.

    Many congrats on all the other shinies too.

    Haven't had a chance to hatch any eggs today but stocked up 150 ready for tomorrow.

    Best of luck everyone.

    Started my shiny hunt for an Eevee through breeding. I have no idea what I am doing and hopefully something good will hatch out of the eggs. I am thinking of buying a german heart gold version which is being sold for cheaps in my area just for a different language ditto. Would that work?

    I need some help here guys. I have 5 shinnies in my Pokemon White version and I want to trade them to my B2. But over the summer I traded a Tirtwig for a Hacked Shiny(didn't know it at the time) now I can't trade my legit caught shinnies over to my B2 version. What do I do?

    I have made absolutely no progress today, but I did make a lot yesterday. I made it to 9,450ish REs in my SS BQ Route 32 hunt. At this point, as long as it doesn't surpass my first Magnemite and it isn't rattata/hoppip, I'll be happy.

    Congrats on the recent shinies everybody, and as usual good luck!

    You haven't lost your encounters at all, in fact, I like to hunt this way. I got my shiny Petilil in 4559 encounters through only saving every time I had 500 encounters, anytime I was at say, 350, I wouldnt save. Think of it like SRing.. is there a way of saving your SR's.. nope. Anyway, people have different hunting strategies.

    I am assuming the hunt you are talking about is Petilil, so I'll post mine to inspire you to keep going, it is definately a shiny worth hunting

    So, this happened around midnight last night...

    I checked the swarm of the day and it was Voltorb. So I thought, 'Why not try and chain a Voltorb?'

    THIS IS THE FIRST OF THE SWARM. NON-SHINY PATCH...

    http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/...ps479654dc.jpg

    1/8,192 shiny, thank you very much! Shoutout to Storm_Dragoon who was on SHU chat when it appeared!

    Also fortunate to miss Selfdestruct by one level, too! It's Gentle nature. I'll post some Summary pics up later, too bright to take pics right now...

    Overall not bad... Would prefer it if the Attack and Sp. Attack were switched, however...

    The only shinies I've ever caught are chained ones, and one random encounter Bidoof on Pearl.

    I've tried soft-resetting several times but I always gave up. For over a week I've been SR in front of Giratina and I'm not going to stop until it shines for me! I've been doing it whenever I watch movies and tv, and on my way to and from work. I've not counted how many I've done but it's a lot, I've spent a lot of time on this so hopefully it will be soon!

    Congratulations on your shiny Voltorb and insane luck! And Storm Dragoon still exists? I haven't contacted her in a while.

    I had a humourous chain of 39 nosepass last night but it broke at 40 by a Kriketune. I'm going to keep hunting!

    Well gratz to Bleu on reclaiming Electrike, 2rsa on the random Magikarp, TheMaster327 on Voltorb and any others I missed since my last post!

    My shiny luck seems to be going though a dry spell right now.. Its now day 13 for Registeel (SHINE ALREADY!) and I'm almost at 4k encounters in Victory Road. I've been focusing mainly on Registeel lately so hopefully it shines soon. I really wanted to get my SR targets done before Apirl or at least 3 of them done, but that doesn't seem likely now but only time will tell!

    So, to get the conversation rolling again, what was one of your most memorable moments while shiny hunting?

    As I've said before, finally getting that female Combee after 80k+ encounters on route 12 was definitely one of my most memorable moments. Another moment was just last month when I got that 5% shiny Misdreavus with a perfect nature (Timid). Well, good luck everyone and hopefully the next time I post I'll have a shiny!

    First of all I'm jealous of your Misdreavous, did you name it? (A better question is, do you guys name your shinies?)

    My most memorable encounter was finding a shiny ekans in just 3 R/E's in my copy of Soul Silver a month ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhgT-YS84kk
    I sounded like a nervous wreck throughout the entire video, as you can tell. I've never had that sort of luck, ever ;c;

    Well grats on the shiny pokemon everyone

    Q_Q My legendary pokemon dont seem to like me. I keep hoping that they'll shine early so I can move on to the next one.

    I've just started to SR for Cobalion in Black. Im only at 25 right now. Im REALLY hoping it'll shine very early so I can move on to the other two and then Kyruem and Landorus.

    Good luck to everyone else that'll get theirs before I do Y_Y

    EDIT: Also does anyone know if the manaphy egg from the first pokemon ranger game can have a Shiny in it?

    Manaphy can be shiny, but it would be EXTREMELY time-consuming to hunt for. You'd have to beat the game, get the egg and hatch it...it's worse than SRing for Cynthia's Togepi in Platinum.

    If you know me, you know that I've been gone for a while, and in that time, I caught a shiny Mienshao I called Starla in Black 2. :3
    Oh, and besides Starla, red Gyarados is my only shiny so I was really excited.

    Crustle - Cancer
    Scolipede - Scorpio
    Tauros - Taurus
    Ampharos - Aries
    Girafarig - Gemini
    SlowBro - USlowBro
    Muk - Gelatin
    Golem - Roxas
    Druddigon - no name
    Garchomp - No name

    Those are all of my shinnies.

    I'm currently at 4200 RE for Shiny Litwick. I hope it shines soon.

    Ah that is true! I jsut had the mindset "What if it's the next pokemon?!"I also wasn't keeping track of how much i had since I only check once in a while, I'm guessing i was in the 1.9k.
    I might try that method after every 1k ( since i'm nearing that ) It does seem smart since in the next reset it could be the first pokemon you run into! :3

    Congrats to Telivisionhead on Tepig, Bonetail on Charmander, Pokemaster13 on Treeko, Pidjiken on Unknown Shiny (maybe a Marill? Can't see the pictures...), Bleu on Electrike, 2rsa on Magikarp and TheMaster327 on Voltorb!

    I have a few memorable moments, though I think the most memorable would be getting Cyndaquil in 13 SR's though. I got him 30th December 2009 and I still remember to this day freaking out and frantically texting my boyfriend about it!
    Though some other smaller but memorable ones would be the moment I saw my shiny Chikorita and shiny Charmander were both female, getting Chimchar in 11 SR's (a recent one) and getting shiny Shaymin the same day my boyfriend got shiny Registeel.

    I do! I always nickname my Pokémon, and shinies are no exception. It makes them more personal to me and thus, more special, rather than just being some rare colored pixels (which they are, but it doesn't feel that way sometimes!).
    Also, all my nicknames are in my signature, but because I enjoy making lists I'm going to list them anyways, so feel free to skip or read anyways!

    Lucario - Yolk
    Drifblim - Starburst
    Bidoof - Rhapsody
    Zigzagoon - Gizmo
    Typhlosion - Plume
    Meganium - Hibiscus
    Latias - Twinkle
    Charmander - Lemon
    Shaymin - Gracidea
    Golduck - Coral
    Infernape - Flare (I might change this one)

    I also already have plans to name my shiny Mudkip Muddle, which is a play on Mud + Puddle + my personal head canon that Swamperts are slighty derpy, silly and dumb but lovable and strong too :D
    I already used this name with my Nuzlocke Mudkip, but I love it so much I'm reusing it with no shame.

    Anyways! Sorry this post is a bit long, luckily my update is short. I'm nearly at 270 eggs for Mudkip (I got distracted by a new game, oops) and once I hatch 300 eggs I'm going to move back to Virbank Complex for at least another 2000-3000 RE, unless I find a shiny before that, and then come back to eggs. I'll also go back to Snivy as well when I reach 300 eggs, since RE and SR at the same time is fairly easy as long as I have youtube videos and nothing else to occupy my hands ;)

    So good luck everyone, and don't lose hope!

    Edit: Also congrats JAWAYami and Marvs!

    I'm a little cocerned about my W2 game because I had gotten hacks through trades and I'm not having any luck getting shinies. So really just want to know if I'm just being overly concerned or if my games is no good.
