    Congrats to wobbanut on Ponyta, ohjeezitskim on Trapinch, VictorC on Cacnea, TheMaster327 on Unown, Soulink on multiple shinies, Bariokie on multiple shinies, Venonat on Magikarp, J-Tech on Timburr, *Murkrow on Sunkern, Dangertrout on Growlithe, VictorC on Poliwag, gustavo 14 on Feebas, pokemaster13 on Herdier, ChaChi on Emolga, Birds Of Paradise on Larvesta and Patrat, JohnNiles on Beldum, Crimson_Blazer on Riolu, 2rsa on Eevee, blue8arman on Boldore, Staryu on Skorupi, bro on Solosis and TheMaster327 on Rhyhorn!

    So many shinies!

    Anyways, I'm back to report that although I didn't get the chance to hunt at all today, I did get 3 new shinies I've been wishing to find for a while! While exploring Instagram in the early hours of the morning, I by chance stumbled upon a trade, and I'm now (finally) the owner of the 3 event shiny beasts, Suicune, Raikou and Entei!
    I've been hoping to find a trade for these 3 I can actually do for a while so I'm very excited! I will update my shiny card again tomorrow!

    Tomorrow I also plan to pick back up my Mudkip hunt, so wish me luck with that! And good luck to all of you as well! :D

    I'm a little burnt out on breeding for shinies (or shiiny hunting at all for that matter). I might take on some breeding projects, since I like breeding pokemon for people, but for now I'm going to focus a little more on my Pearl Nuzloke
    Going to Montreal's Otakuthon this summer? There will be a Pokemon meet up spot this year for casual battles, trades and other IR activities! ^_^

    Community hunt complete!
    My second one this month, so far!

    I've hatched 455 eggs before today when I did my largest egg collection at 210
    I got through all the boxes and nearly half of the last box and at egg 648
    I seen a blue flamed, green eyed candle!

    Although he has a bad nature, lowering his SP. ATT - he's still awesome!
    Will edit in his IVs later!
    shinylitwick.jpg

    Edit: 17/25/11/11/21/31
    Not bad! Perfect speed! But his Sp. att., is lacking xD - his defenses are higher!

    I will not be able to congratulate everyone at the moment because I'm on a tablet. I will try to update or repost later. So for now, congrats on all recent shines

    My beldum hunt seems to be going at a slower pace than everyone else. How do you guys hatch your eggs? Also a copy of Pokemon Platinum came in the mail for me today, so I will be starting a hunt for Turtwig. Seven more starters to go and I'll have all of them, so Turtwig will be one more step in that direction

    Congrats to starrah, kitty, cocoadragon, lunafloon, ohjeezitskim, VitorC, TheMaster327, J-Tech, Dangertrout, gustavo14, pokemaster13, ChaChi, JohnNiles, Crimson_Blazer, 2rsa and any others I missed on getting a shiny since my last post.

    After a month and a day I have another shiny. Hopefully this is some luck returning. After 11,180 encounters shiny growlithe appeared on my white 2. My second badge quest shiny. It was the one I wanted least as I got a shiny growlithe in my HG BQ but my newest growlithe has intimidate as the ability while my other has flash fire so I'm quite happy with that. Hopefully my 3rd BQ shiny for W2 wont go over 10,000.

    I've also been doing my MM hunt thats now at 1,800 eggs for skorupi on Black.

    Good luck to those still hunting

    Well I have a lv10 Nursery in my Black/White 2 join avenues, so I just take my eggs there. It saves you a load of time, since the nursery can make your eggs hatch instantly. ^_^


    Sigh... now at 20,570 soft resets for shiny Thundurus. I hope it shines before the end of the month. >.>


    Good luck everybody. Congrats on new shinies.

    oh lol

    I was hatching Dwebble eggs (it's for a friend, normal breeding not MM-ing for the CH since I already have a Shiny Crustle) in Desert Resort when suddenly a female Shiny Sandshrew appeared.....bad Nature (Sassy -_-) but a shiny is a shiny.

    And I caught it within a Heal Ball....while it still has full HP and no status

    Still, I kinda wish it was a female Maractus or a Sigilyph instead (with a better Nature of course) as I like their "neon" shiny colors.....





    I'll update my shiny banner later on, along with a few shinies I got via trading with friends and via GTS

    Want to see my shinies? Just click the links~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    Beldum takes a ton of steps to hatch, so it's not surprising that it's slow going I make use of the shop in Join Avenue as well, though mine has not yet reached level 10. Still, it saves me some time

    No shiny news for me, as I'm still taking my shiny hunting break. I was working on a Pearl Nuzlocke, but I'm a little miffed at a crit taking out my Golbat last night. Not sure how I feel about grinding another Zubat from level 5 to 25, but the rest of my team wont be great against the fighting gym >: (
    Oh, by the way, if anyone needs decent (North American English) parents for their projects, give me a shout. I like breeding for IVs and natures

    Congrats on the recent shinies, including Shine's Sandshrew. I like the shiny, but yeah, I would also have preferred a shiny Maractus. Sigilyph is a wierd shiny imo, but that would also have been nice to find. Congrats though!

    As for me, 195 eggs and 5 hatches away from the point of no return. 210 Eggs is when I'll switch back to those blasted Staryu, but I can't complain, both Larvesta and Staryu are amazing shinies.

    Good luck to all, especially the likes of Ceecee, Cocoadragon, Heliotrope, HGaddict, JAWAYami, Dangertrout and many others. Most of you deserve shinies >.<

    Most... not all...?

    I was going to start SRing today but my glasses broke and I don't have the proper tool to screw it back in.. I can already feel a headache coming on from all the squinting at the computer lol my next target is Cyndaquil, which I'm going to MM for now - since I won't have to pay close attention to the colors of three pokemon and give myself a worse headache lol

    Edit: Congrat on your shinies! City of Delusion on Fearow, Shine on the Sandshrew, and Cyndajay on Growlithe!!
    And good luck to everyone else! I have 60 eggs right now for Cyndaquil!

    Gratz to ohjeezitskim on Litwick, Cyndajay on Growlithe and Shine on Sandshrew!

    I just got my first shiny of April and its Fearow!

    http://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/...ps1df86c92.jpg

    This came after 10,272 encounters, adamant sync failed so it got lonely nature which is still nice. I've always wanted this shiny and it looks way nicer in person. I'm not sure what to hunt next but I'm thinking Johto starters.. I know I said I wouldn't do anymore SR hunts for awhile but I want to complete the starter trio. I already got Cyndaquil so I just need two more so this will mostly likely be my next hunt unless I think of something else. I'm currently at 960 eggs hatched for Eevee so I'm really hoping it shines soon. Good luck everyone!

    Congrats to ohjeezitskim on Litwick, City on Fearow, Shine on Sandshrew, and Cyndajay on Growlithe!

    Wow, seems a lot of people are MMing for Eevee right now, I guess for the CH. What a strange coincidence, I'm MMing for Eevee for the CH! I've hatched 260 eggs so far, and no shine, but I did get a female DW-Ability Timid-natured Eevee that I'm using the Everstone trick with! And, for those of you who don't know already and don't understand complex data structures in the Pokemon games, that makes it slightly more likely to hatch a DW-Ability Shiny when done in B2/W2! (It does not improve the odds beyond the normal MM odds, it just makes any Shiny hatched more likely to have the DW Ability.)

    Anyway, good luck as usual to everyone! I'm getting back to MMing for that Eevee!

    The rainbow has immeasurably beautiful symbolism for me.
    To me, the rainbow means:

    Love everyone
    Accept everyone
    Respect everyone
    Understand everyone
    And, be kind and gentle as much as you can.

    I'm sorry for giving another blanket congrats, but congrats to everyone who has gotten a shiny recently!
    I'm currently at 120 eggs, it's so hard to balance both work and egg hatching at once @ @
    Hopefully it will shiny really soon so that I dont have to worry about it too much~

    I now have shiny swellow, gastly, rotom, spoink, dunsparce, grumpig, ponyta, girafarig, absol, larvitar, miltank, roselia, and tyrogue. Going to try and get shiny magikarp and solrock shortly. I've been dying to get shiny eevee but after 500 some odd eggs I feel it can't happen.

    Man, April is just a lucky month! Just now at 9860 RE's, a female shiny Sneasel appeared for BQ #7! I'm very pleased, since as it's daytime here, Snorunt (1st choice) wasn't possible, and Sneasel, over time, has become more appealing. I much happier with this than with Swinub or Snover.

    http://i1293.photobucket.com/albums/...ps9928411c.jpg

    Bold nature is next to awful, but it's not as bad as Rhyhorn's Modest nature, so I'm okay with it. Now to continue through Platinum to reach Giratina, my last BQ shiny. I hope Giratina doesn't try to replicate Rayquaza. It would be amazing to get Giratina on my birthday later this month, though regardless, I can't wait finish this BQ up now! That's all I got; good luck everyone!

    Wow, a lot of shinies here in that little lap of time. Congratulations !
    I just ended the school day without a single homework. Got two entire days to hatch Sewaddle eggs, that will be perfect ! Currently at 120 eggs. Nothing else than normal Sewaddle every time. Hope that little guy hatches soon.
    Good luck to everyone !

    It's much easier in fifth gen games to look at the back of you trainer card. The numbers of encounters are there. Or in ss or HG it's on one of the computers one if the bigger cities... I don't remember the name because I haven't played 4th gen in forever lol quick google search would do it. Or a smarter serebii member lol

    And so you don't have to release tons of Pokemon save before you get a whole bunch, hatch and if none are shiny just soft reset and try again. I got my latest 3 shinies this way, and I only have to release when I actually hatch shiny.

    I was going to hunt for Turtwig on Platinum and Beldum on Heartgold, but I decided instead of Turtwig, I'd go for the Mt Moon shiny. Well, on my FIRST encounter since I turned it on, I got a shiny Paras! It's not the pokemon I wanted from there, but it's still awesome!! Now I can continue on my Badge quest. Thanks for the good luck Aqua btw. It looks like it worked for me

    Just stopping by to say that quickly. Don't have time to congratulate by name again sorry :/ I will next time. However congrats to everyone who got a shiny lately, and good luck on everyone's hunts! Especially Heliotrope. You definitely deserve one after that long!

    Edit: Here's a picture:
    IMG_20130405_181338 (2).jpg

    Edit2: Does anyone have any suggestions of what to hunt next? It can be a hunt in any route that is accessible before defeating the third gym leader. Thanks

    @Dangertrout - Thanks for your suggestion, but I already have most the pokemon on that route in shiny form. I have chosen route 5 as my next hunt. Also, did you mean the routes between Mt Moon and Cerulean? Thanks again Dangertrout

    @ Dangertrout again - Oh yes, sorry XD I was just confused.

    All the routes between Mt. Moon and Vermillion have pokemon I like >.< I think I'd hunt for Caterpie above Cerulean, though if you're actually using the shinies against the gym leaders you can hop in Diglett cave and hunt there for something to nuke the gym with.

    I'm working on a couple IV breeding projects atm. Spinarak is being uncooperative though, it refuses to be adamant! Must be close to 100 eggs hatched now. Not that I mind that much, gives me more chances at hatching a shiny on the way

    edit - just after I typed that, I hatched an adamant one >.< I should complain more often.... "QQ, I don't have a shiny spinarak yet" *hatches egg* damn, didn't work
    edit 2 - @HGaddict, no, I did mean Vermillion. You're headed to the third gym, right?

    In a very bad mood. Shut off my game three times in a row, throwing away whatever eggs I've grabbed. I'm pissed because I was struggling with a different game earlier, and now that's spilled over and I've lost patience with Pokemon, and strained my wrists to boot. Now I've lost focus and basically have no better shot at hatching a shiny than the people who give up immediately. I guess everyone has their breaking point.

    Congrats to everyone that obtained a shiny, especially HGaddict on the Paras. GL on your LG BQ.

    As for my LG BQ, I slowly reaching higher numbers in my fishing hunt. I've noticed that many websites say with Good Rod Poliwag has a 60% encounter rate, yet I am finding WAY more Goldeen instead. Dunno if the info is wrong or what, but hopefully I get lucky and get a shiny Poliwag .

    I also restarted my Crystal version and decided to start a BQ on that game as well. Currently SRing for a shiny Totodile. Only did about 10 SR's today.
