    Earlier on in Black 2, I was with my rival in the sewers and a double battle came up and there was a green Zubat! Then my rival one hit KO'd it and I raged. Hard.

I just could of been unlucky but I personally believe cute charm works a bit differently in 4th gen.
    If you have the right TID/SID combination it can lower it down to a 1/32 chance.

    And yes, Cute Charm works differently in Gen 4, since PID is tied to natures and whatnot, so there aren't as many possible combinations (it also produces ridiculously ****ed up PIDs on Gen 4 Pokemon).

    I haven't posted since last year, busy with school these days, but since it was march break i decided to continue my previous hunts. Currently at 863 treecko eggs(mm) and 500 sr's in heartgold(1500 seen). It seems today luck wasn't that good. Oh wel! Shine starters shine! Gl everyone!

    Congrats to Gustavo 14 on Roselia, Dan2point5 on Mudkip, Jorge565 on Koffing, Bariokie on Nincada, Chaotic Inverse on Cottonee, TheGiratina999 on Machoke, Will5iam on Scyther, Shiny Lord on Snivy, Ho-oh The Rainbow Pokemon on Terrakion, Starrrah on Whirlipede, Bariokie on Tepig, SilverHybrid on Eevee, MAGAX on Horsea, Bariokie on Petlil, TheMaster327 on 6 Dunsparce, Papousse on Tangela, Miar on Sewaddle, Bleu on 7 Magnemite, Zane Clarthy on Nidoran, City Of Delusion on Heatmor, JohnNiles on Chimchar, Royal_Qeca on Pidove and CharlieDoryRose on Whirlipede!
    Phew!

    Also, I hope all you people who lost shinies reclaim them or find something that at least makes you feel better!

    Now that that is finally over, I have a new shiny to report for duty!
    As most of you know, I've been racing my boyfriend at Virbank Complex (with the shiny charm I must add), and today at 4672 RE I finally found the very exact one I was so hoping for: Growlithe!
    So glad it didn't take over 10,000 like Golduck did...

    http://i1022.photobucket.com/albums/...ps374b414b.jpg

    It's Quiet natured, which isn't the best since it reduces Speed, but I like using Flamethrower anyways so the plus Sp. Attack isn't anything to sneeze at. He's also male, of course, and has Flash Fire, which makes it oh so much sweeter, since every normal Growlithe I've used on a team so far has had Intimidate, and I prefer Flash Fire!
    I decided in the end to name him Archy for now, after Crys' Arcanine in the Pokémon Adventure manga, and yes that means I do plan on evolving him as seen in my (remade!) shiny card below. I don't know if the name will stick, but I kind of like having a little tribute to one of my favourite manga series' so I guess we'll see! Nicknames tend to feel awkward at first and then grow on me, I'm a little picky!
    Anyways, so that was all very exciting, and it also means I won the race so I get to name my boyfriends shiny (when he finds it) and he owes me a small snack prize, muahaha!

    As for my other hunts, I was planning to start Snivy tomorrow along with REing, but since I just got my RE hunt I'm not sure what I'll do. I'll either SR Snivy alone, find a new place to RE, stay at Virbank for fun or just go back to hatching Mudkip. Either way, I'll come update in a couple days just to let you all know! Snivy is still going slow, but I have faith I will one day finish that hunt! Hopefully before my birthday in August!

    Good luck with your hunts everyone, and be careful not to accidently hit run like I very nearly did with both Golduck and Growlithe!

    Wow guys congrats on the recent shinies! Especially to you Bariokie! I'm so sorry for your loss
    Goodluck to everyone else who are still working on their hunt!

    I've just reached about ~4.4k encounters in Pinwheel Forest, and ~2.1k encounters after the Shiny Whirlepede find.
    I feel like this is going to be a looooooooong hunt.

    My god, I was just looking for those secret grotto's in Black 2, when a random shiny Watchog showed up. After capturing, it appears to be the worst competitive Pokémon ever with illuminate as a body.

    Ah well, a shiny is a shiny! Below a battle picture:

    YASS!!!!!!!!

    Community Hunt Complete!!!!!!

    Shiny Bulbasaur hatched! Male! Calm! Flawless Def and Sp.def! But heres the really strange part... He was hatched after 767 eggs. Not only is it a palindrome but its also only one egg shorter than Charmander! Im taking name suggestions too =D.
    So now i move onto Squirtle, well i have a box or two of eggs to hatch first, so a second may be on the cards!

    Congrats to City,Lunafloon,ShinySupercow,John Niles,Zane,Royal QECA, CharlieDoryRose,Bariokie, SilverHybrid,MAGAX,Papousse,Miar and Bleu on all of your shinies. And of course gl to all hunting =D.

    Only Shiny I ever randomly encountered was a pelipper in platinum. I was just training a jolteon and there it was. Other than that I found a stunky in diamond randomly the rest are all from trades

    YAY!!! I got a shiny Purrloin. Not what I was after, but I'm happy to know that I was wrong about my game being wacked out.
    It's got a naive nature, characteristic is Quick to Flee, and the iv judge said that it's decent all around and that it's speed stat is very good.
    Not very good stats, but it's still a shiny. I almost forgot, I got it in 1288 REs with the shiny charm. I also named it after the legendary creature Pard and I caught it in a Premier ball. All I need to do now is go after Pidove still, but this is a nice find.


    Edit: Whoops! I forgot about it's location and level. I got it in route 20 in White 2 and it was level 4. I'm still counting from when I got Purrloin, so hopefully I'll get Pidove next. If not then I'll do a different hunt wish me luck.

    Wow, cocoadragon, Pupitar is a great shiny! I haven't been hunting much, just don't have the time. Plus I was working on catching all of the Unova Dex Pokemon! Now that I have my Oval Charm, I might resume my Hidden Ability Poliwag hunt! As usual, good luck to everyone! Especially polygonalporygon; I remember when I got my Shiny Latios and I was jumping for joy!

    Hello everyone congratulations on all recent shinies!

    I am now at just over 3800 RE's on route 5 for a gen V shiny and still nothing to show for it yet. I am really hoping I find a shiny Gothita but any of them will do. Just shine already! I am well over the shiny charm odds. I will keep going until I get my route 5 shiny and then I think I will take a break from REing for a while and go back to MMing a lot. I may try SRing for a shiny Cresselia. I really want this route 5 shiny now I am getting fed up of being there. Could anyone give me their shiny luck and I promise to give it back after I get my shiny... thank you.

    Oh on white version I got a Japanese bayleef so I am breeding it with my bayleef and hoping for a shiny chikorita. I have been collecting 2 boxes of Squirtle eggs and a box and a half of Chikorita eggs. Now I am trying to get a box or two of snivy eggs. And I think I may try Yanma and Shuckle for the remaining boxes. Before I start a hatching frenzy to find a shiny on there.

    Good luck to anyone still shiny hunting.
    Shinies are good.

    704 eggs since my last shiny and I think that my Black 2 is trolling me.

    I hatched a non-shiny Nidoran F with her DW Ability, a modest nature, and an IV spread of 31/5/31/30/31/31.

    Almost flawless, but not shiny. If this doesn't qualify as trolling I don't know what does.

    One of my favorite shinies is my nidorino which was obtained during my FR nuzlocke. I am currently using it in a playthrough of heartgold and it took out Whitney's milktank with a mimic'd rollout(irony much?). There is one thing that bugs me though....

    How did its ability go from poison point to rivalry?
