    I got my next Badge Quest shiny last night, just before 12. I've been hatching a box of Eevee eggs while also encountering in HG. When I finish a box of eggs, I reset HG and try again. I don't really know why, but I just feel a little refreshed when I do so.

    This particular time was dragging on a bit, and because it was late, I probably wasn't so quick with my reflexes as I would have been earlier. It didn't look like anything would shine, so I was looking at my laptop while I had the DS balanced on the side of it, near the keys. I hadn't really noticed that it had slid a bit, and then suddenly after I had ran away from a Pokemon and I was about to encounter another one, the DS slipped off and fell onto the bed. I tried to grab it, but because I was leaning on my elbow, it was kind of awkward, so I just reached for the pad and began to press random directions in the vain hope of running into something.

    And I did! Even I could see from my position that the Pokemon was different. And it was the one I wanted! That's kind of rare for me with REs, as I usually don't care what I get, but sometimes I hunt something like Pawniard and get those two Minccino instead! And it kind of shocked me, but not in the same way as Nidoran. This time it was more like a, "Is this really happening? This is hilarious." type of feeling.

    So, here's some pics!

    http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/4964/1000882y.jpg Edit: You might notice that black line ... lol ... I only just noticed it then, but I realised what it was. I must have accidentally drew on it while I was in Paint reducing the size of the picture. Sorry about that!

    I'd been hunting every spare moment since Gemini the Nidoran, so I'm really happy! And I just need one more shiny and then I can stop calling my Lopsided Heart Gold Badge Quest a Lopsided one! This feels awesome. It will be cool to finally finish this.

    I'm not sure whether Webby will stick or not ... err, pun not intended there! I mean, Luna is now Gemini, so hey, Webby might change sometime in the future. Not sure at this stage.

    It's a bit of a pity all the Pokemon I want to be shiny in HG are usually out at night time instead of during the day, however. It makes it rather limiting.

    Anyway, thanks for sticking through my looooong post, as usual!

    Seeya soon, hopefully!
    I'm very happy for you because I'm somebody that follows your Badge Quest because this one interested me. I like you explain how you caught your latest Shiny and that's why I give you a big congratulation right now ! Good luck on your next hunt !

    I actually saw you few times on that thread and it has made a long time since you started your hunt on Petilil. I'm sorry for you, I wish my hopes will gain you luck next time ! You could switch on Masuda Method, no ?

    I just have a question. When you guys are saying, for example, 5000 RE, does that means you've encoutered 5000 times the Pokémon your hunting or you've encoutered 5000 time a Pokémon that lives in the area you are currently hunting ?

    5000 pokemon that live in the area, or pokemon seen before finding a shiny etc.

    Congrats on all the march madness shinies recently caught!

    I had little to no time to hunt all week and the only significant thing I did for my route 32 hunt was last night where I got it up to 11,103 REs. So it continues to rise and I'm not all that inspired anymore. But who knows maybe ill get it soon.

    Anyways good luck everyone, especially themaster, helio, and ceecee along with anyone else with over-the-odds hunts.

    First off congrats to all shinies since my last post. I hate to blanket congrats but I've caught a head cold so I don't have much energy to see who got a shiny and congrats everyone. I got up to 2,967 RE's in Mistralton Cave on Black 2 today. Since I have the Shiny Charm I've passed the RE odds. I've also decided to MM the Shiny Eevee for my White 2 Badge Quest on Black 2 and trade it over as hunting in Castelia Park is too annoying for me. i don't overly care for IV's: however today I got a Japanese female Pawniard of the GTs for my level 1 Tailow which has 30-31 IV's in Attack, Speed and Special Defense which is so awesome! I also just found out that the Japanese Eevee DW ability mother that I got of the GTS for my level 1 Smeargle has 31 IV's in HP and Special Attack! Needless to say when I breed for a Shiny Jolteon, Umbreon, Espeon and two Eevee's(one to stay an Eevee one to be Sylveon) on this game that'll be awesome! And the father which is the female DW Japanese Eevee's son has a Jolly Nature holding an everstone with randomly 31 Attack IV's! I gave the mother a power weight to pass on her HP IV. My shiny Flareon is going to own! A while back I hatched 150 Eevee using MM so I'm continuing the count from there. Best of luck to everyone, especially those with long hunts! I'll be alternating days between my two hunts on Black 2: one day for Wellspring RE's, the next for Eevee hatching.

    Gl to everyone on their hunts especially TheMaster on his MM mission for the green bull, and maybe one of my eevee eggs will shine soon... over 1,400+ eggs now which isn't a lot compared to TheMaster, but hey we both deserve something at this rate! x3

    Surprise! (I have been terribly busy)
    No shiny on my end, I haven't been lucky since January when I managed to find a shiny Psyduck.
    I have been MMing and SRing and so far nothing has decided to reveal itself to me.
    And since I doubt I'll be getting this shiny, I suppose I'll tell you I have been hunting for a shiny Snivy.
    Congrats on everyone's success on their hunts and hope for the best for everyone like me who are still hunting for their respected shinies.

    YES, I just finished my first MM hunt and got it LIVE on video!
    After 438 eggs, shiny Munna decides do appear on my Japanese Black version.

    I started this hunt on last year but was being super lazy with it, so yesterday I started to hoard some eggs and hatched most of them today. I still have two boxes of eggs to hatch.
    If you have any ideas for a name, let me know!

    Here's a picture: http://i46.*******.com/ir1e0i.jpg

    Most recent catch:

    http://i.imgur.com/8FIL4Nb.jpg
    http://i.imgur.com/TxQ9FPG.jpg

    Took a pretty long time to say the least.
    I was SRing for it in SoulSilver at first (I must've started in Summer 2010, several months after getting SS.)
    I wasn't SRing all the time, though. Mostly on and off.

    Then later I got the Eon Ticket on Ruby, so I went there and SRed on both SoulSilver and Ruby to no avail.

    Then I finished White 2 and rushed through Pinwheel Forest & such to get to Dream Yard. Saved there, so now I was SRing for Latias on three different games at once (everything to improve my odds, though I didn't have shiny charm on W2.)
    Two days later, this.

    Kinda glad it appeared on Ruby and not on SS nor White 2, because since I got Latios from HeartGold, it makes some kind of pattern (Shiny Latias from Eon Ticket special event in Ruby, Shiny Latios from the enigma stone special event in HG.)
    Glad to have gotten it on that pretty cool ID number too.

    @bro above me, this is pretty nice! I like how it's yellow, just like my Latias. And the green parts reminds me of shiny Latios.

    To anyone who has done a headbutt hunt before, does it take longer or shorter than a normal RE hunt? I'm considering it for my 3rd BQ target, but I can't decide.

    Also congrats Pingouin on Latias, an awesome shiny and it took a long time!

    It's not that bad, it's like doing an SR hunt in terms of length.

    I've been watching the thread for 4 days now so I decided to start posting. I'm MMing for a Shiny Charmander at the moment, I lost the track of the eggs at some point but I'm pretty sure I'm reaching the mark of 600 eggs, it's my first MM so I'm not getting bummed, but I hope it shines soon. Congrats for all the recent shinies!

    Sorry for any English mistakes, I'm brazillian.

    Congratz on all the shinies thus far.

    Lo, and behold. I had the most wonderous thing occur to me today...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVh_sgDb3uk

    My Latias finally shined! I was dual resetting with a Cabalion on Black and this Latias, which I've been hunting for since late January (15k R/Es in all!). It is, bar none, my favourite pokemon in the Pokedex so this was a dream come true for me! =) I was watching an episode of Casualty, I see a sick girl dressed in a yellow cardigan on the screen, I look down, and I see an equally yellow Latias before my eyes. It also only took three Ultra balls. I'm sure the Latis have a pretty high catch rate compared to most legends, but it was a boon since my camera can only record for so long.

    It's a Quiet nature. Synch didn't work, but I'm not worried in the slightest. I'm really glad I have this wonderful mon legitmately on my roster now.

    Hey everyone!
    Congrats on the Heracross, Munna, two Latias, and any other recent shinies!

    As for me, I finally have shiny news!

    http://imageshack.us/a/img837/7060/img0047ee.jpg

    I was literally about to stop hunting for awhile, when Latios finally shone for me! At 3,261 total soft resets, it's my first SR hunt to go over the shiny charm odds. It was totally worth it though! Oh, and my sync finally worked, so it's Modest!

    And geez, it seems like a lot of you are having hunts that are over-the-odds, too. Hopefully everyone can find some good luck!

    I'm gonna confess right now, my 15k SRs was actually WITH the shiny charm. I am far, far more unlucky D: congratz!

    Woohoo! Shiny Johto stater trio complete!

    After 2,360 SRs shiny FEMALE Totodile showed her pretty face! This is the second female Johto starter in a row (Chikorita was the previous female starter and too 2,873 SRs to obtain). She's also my 20th shiny!

    The recently dubbed Artemis is Adamant natured and has a sturdy body (I believe that is a good nature). Not sure how to calculate IVs but if anyone wants to her stats are:
    HP: 20 Attack: 13 Defense: 12 Sp. Attack: 8 Sp. Defense: 10 Speed: 10

    Anyway congrats to all those who got a shiny since my last post and good luck to those still hunting. (I would congratulate everyone individually but it's movie night and the Hobbit is about to start).

    Sorry to give a blanket congratulations but I didn't expect to not post until now... And for there to be so many shinies since the 18th!
    Still, congratulations everyone, and good luck to those with long or tricky hunts!

    I don't have any new shinies to report, I haven't actually been shiny hunting since I got Growlithe actually. I've been playing through HeartGold as fast as possible to get a Ho-Oh for a trade, and I also got engrossed in Ace Attorney, whoops! But I've got the Ho-Oh now (and a level 60 Cyndaquil in the process, solo running ftw) and I'll probably start shiny hunting again tomorrow, while I play Ace Attorney. I'll have to work on my multitasking skills!
    I've decided to just go straight to SRing Snivy for now, I want to try and hit 2000 so I can restart for a new Trainer ID (unneeded but it keeps it feelings fresh) and maybe I'll do a RE hunt on the side, I have no idea which though. I could do my Platinum Badge Quest but tbh I'm still not sure what my 2nd badge shiny hunt will be... So I might just do a random hunt on W2, simply because I have the shiny charm so I may get lucky with a few short hunts while I SR Snivy :D

    Still, it's shameful how lazy I'm being with Snivy... It just takes a little more concentration than I'm used to since I need to try and not pick Tepig, or end up naming it AAAAAAAAAAA. I'll work on it though, give me time!
    I'm actually getting kind of impatient to move on to SoulSilver actually, since I want to go for Lugia, Suicune AND Totodile, but I'm unsure whether I'll get Lugia and Suicune on my current file or restart for Totodile first and then SR for them... I guess I'll decide when Snivy decides to pop up!

    Anyways, once again, good luck everyone on your hunts!

    Congrats to Marvs, bro, Pingouin7, Crimson_Blazer, Bleu, pokemaster13, and Wyverndust!

    No shinies here, but I have broken the 10k mark! I am pretty proud of my dedication for this shiny I will admit

    Ah thank you for the luck! Yeah it has been a while haha. I'm at the point where I do want to just find a shiny, or else that week would have been wasted if i dropped it right now. I told myself if the shiny i find is not petilil then i will switch over to the Masuda Method
    Once again, thank you! ° v°)!

    Did a bunch of sr today on my heartgold and a bit of mm on my black. At 1700 for hg shiny johto starter and 875mm for shiny treecko. These are both my longest hunts. (surprisingly). my two previous (last year)sr's resulted in shiny totodile and cyndaquil and were under 700 sr's.
    I've also had two mm's (cyndaquil and chimchar) and i got both shiny before 400 mm's.
    I guess the game is having its revenge for my four really short hunts.
