    After about 175 eggs, I managed to hatch a shiny Zorua! I'm so happy

    Stats aren't amazing, but I guess at least it has 3 perfect IVs!

    Thanks to everyone for the congrats for Webby, especially ohjeezitskim, starrrah and Papousse. Do you all think Webby is a good enough name, or should I try thinking of something else? I might be able to come up with a different name.

    Also, thanks Papousse on the feedback! It's nice to hear things like that, because I really do think I tend to waffle on a lot! I'm not an old codger/fogey/grandpa or anything, I promise!

    Good luck to everyone, as usual, too, but I just wanted to say to starrrah and Ceecee-typhlosion, because they posted since my last post, that everyone here (well, most everyone! ) are all hoping you get some luck soon. We all have to encourage each other, yes?

    Congrats to Marvs, bro, Pingouin7, (I think you deserved another shiny after all that time!) Crimson_Blazer, Bleu, pokemaster13, wyverndust and Zcrux! Zcrux, isn't three perfect IVs perfect enough?! Also, looks like a Lati@s Lovers gettogether! (I couldn't think of anything starting with L, sorry! ) Edit: Wait, Lovefest!

    After 1738 eggs ...




    ... Mystro is finally mine! Check him out! I didn't post an Eevee picture, as you've already seen my other two.

    So, there you go!

    I wish I had an awesome story to tell you, but I was just sitting down and watching Ducktales after being out for a while, and I didn't even see him hatch or anything. I just casually looked down and he was staring back at me. I just felt relief, but then I got very curious about what ability he had, and when I checked and saw that, I felt even more relieved!

    I then noticed I only had 15 minutes to go until it was 7:00 ... Now, I can't remember what the deadline is for evolving an Eevee into Espeon, but I quickly got to massaging, preening, plucking, fluffing, brushing, and stuffing his face with tasty food in order for him to like me. I'm sure he would after being pampered so much in such a short amount of time. Then I crammed him full of vitamins, strapped him into a Macho Brace, and threw him in some water to attack some unsuspecting Basculin. After one battle, he evolved, and looked amazing!

    I still have several boxes to hatch. Always the way! Well, better get to it, they're not going to hatch themselves. After I train him, of course!

    I might keep breeding Eevee in the future. I'm sure there's probably an Eeveelution we have not yet seen, and he could look pretty cool, so it might be worth breeding for whichever Eevee that happens to be. Also, I might want an Umbreon, too, if I can work out how to deal with Umbreon's moveset!

    Now, I'm not really sure what I'm going to be hunting next. The problem is that there seems to be quite a lot of targets and sometimes it gets hard to choose what you want to go for next. Does anyone else get that problem?

    I know I've been really lucky lately, and it's been amazing, so I hope I'm not annoying anyone by posting so much ...

    Good luck, all!

    Congrats all on your shinies, including that beautiful Espeon for Zane!

    Well, I have news! A new shiny! I was in Virbank Complex, magnet pulling for Magnemite...but what did I get?

    YAY! Not the shiny I love the most from here, but it evolves into two neat shinies. Electivire ftw. It took 3,804 REs and had a Relaxed Nature.

    My next plan on W2 is to start a new thing! I dub it the Steel Sparkle Quest. I shall hunt for all SR/REable shiny steel types in BW1/BW2 Unova. The list is big and includes amazing shinies like Metang, but my next hunt will be for Skarmory. Magnemite will wait!

    3000 encounters sure is a lot, but the odds are more than twice that: 1/8192, but don't be discouraged!

    Found a RE shiny Throh and I wasn't even looking for anything! It was 326 RE after I received the shiny charm. (1886 RE overall)

    I was just testing out my new Meloetta from the event, so I went to the route to the left of White Forest to battle with it for a little bit. Maybe like 10 fights later I saw an orange Throh entering, thinking to myself, "That's not normal, is it?" Then it sparkled and my heart skipped a beat. First RE shiny in a 5th gen game! So I quickly caught it in a Dusk Ball.

    I kinda wish it was one of the other Pokemon on that route, like Pupitar (to regain my lost one), or Gligar (I like Gligars), but a Throh works too I guess.

    No problem, those words were absolutely from what I actually think ! And for Webby, I pretty like the name, it fits with your female Ariados, but it's a little bit too much cute for a scary spider like that. Maybe you could change it for... I don't know, eh... Venima, or Aranea ? Keep going on your hunts. If you want an idea, you could find, in your Black 2 game ... Mantyke, maybe ? Roggenrola ? Ducklett (on the Drawbridge it's an easy one!) or even Pawniard (its blue color is pretty nice) ? Good luck on your Badge Quest on HeartGold, too !

    Once again, thank you! ° v°)!
    More than 10'000 encouters, wow, if I was you, I would already have a rope close by ! I'm joking !
    Don't give up, it should shine soon, or else you are more than unlucky, saddly.. Lilligant is very beautiful in her shiny form so it worth a lot the time, good luck !

    I was wandering if the Crustle in Seaside Cave can be SR for shiny?Thanks.

    Aaahw, you're unlucky and lucky at the same time ! Well, I guess you want your Skorupi, so why not trying the Masuda Method ? Or else, good luck to RE your Skorupi wich, I hope, will be the next to shine to you !

    Darn... I received the fiever of the Shiny Hunter...
    Currently using the Masuda Method to hatch a shiny Sewaddle.
    Decided to stop. I don't have the patience and the envy of doing it, so I'll just be someone who likes to comment other people's shinies.

    I'm still in the tower for litwick just hit 1,100 encounters. I'm going to do around 200 more and then
    switch to double grass. I like hunting in those spots. I have three locations I'm interested in, but first
    is reversal mountain.

    Although there's no shiny news for me, my sister found a shiny in her white 2! After 1600+ encounters
    she got a shiny skorupi with gentle nature!

    Webby is a cute name, but if you dont want a cute name, how about Arachnia?

    Aha! The rope is pretty close, but i'm persistent to get this wonderful shiny! I hope it does appear very soon though, as I am approaching the end of my school year and I would have to limit my shiny hunting soon.

    Anyways, update on this side, I have picked up my new ds! So now I am dual hunting on both white and white 2! Hopefully this will make things faster, I keeping the encounters separate in my sig but once I find a shiny I'll combine how many encounters it has taken

    Wow.. so many people got shinies since my last post o_o!! Gratz to you all, especially that Latios! I'll be going for that next once Registeel shines.

    And speaking of Registeel... Y U NO SHINE?!? Its now day 24 and it has surpassed my longest completed hunt which was Diglett (23 days). My hunt at route 15 is now over 7k REs too.. March doesn't seem to be a lucky month for me but hopefully my luck turns around soon. Gratz again on the recent shinies everyone and good luck!

    I'm feeling like giving specific congrats so I will. Congrats Darkrai523 on Marill, Marvs on Grumpig, Bonetail on Throh, Aqua on Elekid, Zane on Espeon, Zcrux on Zorua, Wyverndust on Totodile, pokemaster13 on Latios, Bleu on Latias, Crimson on Heracross, and any others I missed.

    I'm up to 11,595 REs at Route 32 in my SS BQ. Really want to get it this week since I'm going to get the new mystery dungeon sometime this week and will be occupied with that most likely. But who knows really.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Oh my gosh you guys! I'm so sorry again for posting so soon but I feel this needs it's own post!

    Oh my god!! I even got it live! Sadly my computer is refusing to take videos from my ipad, so I shall find another way!
    But thank you guys so much for the luck and I wish everyone else on their current hunts right now!

    Today I shall start my extremely slow shiny hunting, such as sring as school is about end in a month and I need to focus on my portfolio.
    But ahh thank you guys for the luck once again, and goodluck to everyone else!
