    Day three of shiny trapinch. I put in each day 1,100 encounters, exactly...Odd? Since I had nothing to do all week - it's shiny hunting week lol
    Right now I'm up to 2,200, hoping it shines today since I'm less than 200 away from the shiny charm odds.

    How far do you usually go over the odds of the shiny charm for random encounters?

    Lucky :/ I'm buying two hundred repels at a time. I can't believe I ran out twice. I feel like me leaving to go to the mart is making me miss my shiny and making it longer >.>

    Are you buying Super Repels instead of Max Repels? Super Repels are much more cost efficient, instead of paying 250 more for 50 extra steps.

    Meanwhile, I am tempted to go REing on Platinum later, but I think I want to get a shiny on HG first before going back to it. Skarmory is now Lv42 and is doing well, but I have no nicknames for it unfortunately. I won't NN it, but any ideas?

    ohjeez along with the Super Repel > Max Repel thing you could use the {save-use repels-soft reset} thing, worked for me when i hunted shiny Axew in Mistralton Cave and with my shiny Tynamo(got Ferroseed instead ) hunt at Chargestone Cave (you dont have to SR just another option for you instead of buying more and more Repels...)

    im still REing hoping for something to shine before 20k...but we'll see...also still SRing FRs Gamecorner Scyther with nothing yet(not keeping # count just SRing :P)

    From join avenue I get the 36 Max for about 13k - i'd pay 25k in the store for them! I just get em because I like to have more repels on hand just in case I run out of Supers. (I'm also not toooooo concerned with cash value since the white tree hallow is keeping me in the 1.5mil area.)
    But after that I bought 250 super repels. I always buy super repels. I've now used over 350 repels and no shiny trapinch! I think around 5 pm, I'm going to go to eggs for a bit.

    How long did it take you? I was thinking about doing that but something deep in my dumb ole' brain keeps thinking if I turn it off and the numbers regenerate it'll take longer :c

    both took 9-10k REs and these were both on white 1 so no Shiny Charm and didnt use any Pass Powers(like Encounter+[or whatever]). all depends on luck(...or RNG ABUSE...but i go with the luck). i know 9-10k was quite a bit but i think it was because of my GREAT luck before/after them(Metang 126RE/Dratini 4RE!!/Absol 300RE/etc) in fact i think im paying for all my past luck now on my route 15 hunt...close to 20k atm...

    i hope you find/get who you're hunting for quickly gl to all aswell!!

    Congrats to everyone on their awesome shinies and good luck to all those who are still hunting!

    Nothing too exciting going on, I just can't seem to stay interested in any of my hunts for very long, though I probably just burned myself with my nearly constant hunting.

    Was going to go after Kyogre and Rayquaze on my Heart Gold but realized i hadn't picked up my Kanto starter from Oak yet, so I decided to SR for a shiny Squirtle. Why Squirtle? Have no idea, guess I just wanted it more than a shiny Bulbasuar. Haven't gotten many SRs, only about 1,840 or so.

    Haven't done much hunting if any at all for shiny Snivy, being stuck at a mere 330 SRs with no real motivation to do anymore right now.

    My shiny charm Latias hunt isn't going much faster, only 150 SRs, I am able to do a few SRs before growing bored and moving on to another hunt.

    Then last week I decided to MM a shiny male Shinx as I lost the the one I had on my Diamond when it mysteriously vanished two summers ago. I want a male Shinx so I can name him after the golden tabby I had raised from a bottle when I was twelve. It's supposed to be a kind of tribute to him, as the tabby died several years ago due to an injury. So here's to hoping that I can get my little Gizmo back! Only 105 eggs hatched so far will probably pick up the hunt more this weekend.

    And since I just got to the point in my Platinum version where I have to face Giratina, I figured 'what the heck' and did a few SRs for him too before getting restless again. He stands at 100 SRs

    I'm hoping for a short hunt on at least one of these. My last eight hunts have all been over 5,000 SRs or REs and my last MM took 3,700 eggs, so I feel like my games owe me at least one short hunt by now. So yeah, just taking a bit of a break right now waiting to get my desire to hunt to spark again.

    Really quick update, I've been busy lately!

    I've decided to put all my attention into my Snivy hunt, went from 1461 SR to 1525 today so I'm off to an okay start. Might also do Reversal Mountain on the side of White 2 just because of Shiny Charm making it a simpleish side hunt, but not starting that one yet!

    Congrats to everyones shinies and good luck! I will be doing CH next month, but I might only br able to complete 1 shiny because of Snivy, we'll see!

    Gratz to LucarioMan101 on Growlithe, AquaRegisteel on Skarmory, Royal_Qeca on Lillipup AND Pidove (lucky!) and Marvs on Magby!

    Well I decided to get the shiny charm sooner than planned so hopefully Registeel doesn't take too much longer! I finally get to put this charm to the test, hope it doesn't let me down. Good luck everyone!

    Congratulations to everyone who has gotten shinies recently.


    Update I am still REing at route 5 on black 2 (with shiny charm) and no shiny yet. I have been going slow as well due to time and also trying to MM on white version. I am currently at 7550 RE's and I am getting fed up now it has been my longest RE hunt with the charm and the sight of those four gen V pokemon is getting on my nerves. I want one of them to shine soon. I think I will aim for 8100 and then decide whether to go on or not.

    Good luck to everyone else still hunting!
    Shinies are good.

    Holy crap! My lucky streak continues! Six days ago I caught my shiny Latios, yesterday I found a shiny Sawk after 570 REs, and today I stumbled upon a shiny Minccino?!

    This Shiny Charm is finally starting to give me some really fast hunts! Hopefully my shiny streak will continue, because I'm going to have a good amount of hunting time next week.

    Congrats on the shinies guys, and good luck on your hunts! Hopefully you find yours soon Scrufox, that's an extremely long Shiny Charm hunt!

    Oh my gosh finally after 3 months of breeding - with the MM + shiny charm may I add - I managed to hatch a shiny Venonat. I'm so happy but also a bit disgruntled at the length of time it took.

    Oh well, I've already EV-trained him and evolved him into a Venomoth. Blue venomoths are just so gorgeous! I'm going to be training him up to level 100, once my baby's all trained I shall move on to a shiny roggenrola.

    grats on Minccino, Zorua, and especially Venonat(MMing him again as soon as i find a shiny on Route 15[at 1050 eggs hatched for him atm])

    got to 18,220 REs so far and nothing yet, hoping something shines before 20k...oh funny story...i was REing while watching TV and all of a sudden i heard the sound of a pokeball being thrown so i look down and realized i accidently hit where the "BAG" button was 3x and it threw a luxury ball at a NORMAL Pupitar and BOOM caught it...no Crit Capture, NO Dmg/conditions....3 shakes and caught...afterwards i kinda facepalmed like "...really *sigh*" but ill continue my REing till a shiny *___add_any_pokemon_on_this_routes_name_here__* shows up XP

    add-on: oh my watchog fainted(darn sometimes quick Fearow...) and my shiny Chimecho is down to 1hp(used him to heal Watchog in a few double battles...i dont have/didnt buy any healing/reviving items...so heal pulse/heal bell is the best i got...and apparently i caught POKERUS :P
