    congrats starrah on Horsea, gustavo 14 on Sneasel, HGaddict on Paras, PaddysTurtwig on Squirtle, J-Tech on Shellder, Daisymareep on Drifloon, Zane Clarthy on Pawniard, HootingLilligant on DW Eevee, Houka on Woobat, *Murkrow on Solosis, and TheMaster on Registeel!

    I took a break from MMing, and decided to run around in Lostlorn in hopes of anything but Petilil, since I've caught one last month.
    337 encounters later...
    Shiny Petilil lol
    It was my fastest shiny encounter since I started trying to get shinies by random encounters. I'm still going to run around for a few hours and see if I can get something different - maybe start some eggs for Cyndaquil. Will post IV's later!

    Woot! Riolu evolved right before my battle with Burgh. As for my fourth shiny of the Badge Quest, I'm leaning towards SRing for Volcarona, and not using it on my team.

    Aaaaargh... I started off the day with 150 eggs hatched, I'm now at 270 eggs and barely nothing else than... nothing.
    This is taking forever for me, even if I just hatched 270 eggs. I don't know how you guys can do over 1000 eggs so easily. I'll maybe take a break for now. I should have known that I was too much unpatient !
    Anyway, congratulations all and good luck !

    Try listening to music, read forum posts, and watch movies.
    Right now I'm watching something with Al Pacino in it while I'm collecting eggs for my own hunt and posting on this forum.

    Although, I don't know if Al Pacino would be a fitting name for this hunt.... maybe for Murkrow since it has gangster motif.

    Congrats for anyone who obtained shinies just recently

    One question though - some of you seems to be RE/SR-ing without using a Synchronizer, I'm curious, is there any reason why you don't use a Synchronizer?

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    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 ^_^

    Congrats everyone on the recent shinies!

    I'm now up to 15,205 REs at route 32 in SS. Did over 1000 encounters today, and will probably do some more tomorrow.

    Good luck everyone on your hunts!

    grats on all recent shiny successes(would congradulate people induvidually but im typing this on my Wii...)

    im at 375+ Staryu eggs hatched...no shiny yet(but im used to over 1000 eggs without a shiny)

    about the GTS thing...the GTS does have some glitches(some people use the DNS glitch on purpose to get free random pokemon[some shiny])

    and i have a few reasons i dont use Sync for RE...1: i use illuminate ability, and 2: i dont care much about Nature/IVs as long as its shiny XP

    Good Luck on all hunts!!

    I personally like getting a random nature, and it would take me too much time to get the right synchronizer.

    As an update on hunting, hatched 30 Vulpix eggs today, how do you guys hatch eggs so fast :/? I've got two targets on my main MM list, my secret one and Heatmor, both currently at 90 eggs.

    Ugh, I hate the fact I've lost all my hunt files -_-.

    Firstly congrats to: ohjeezitskim on your Petilil, starrah on Horsea, gustavo 14 on Sneasel, HGaddict on Paras, PaddysTurtwig on Squirtle, J-Tech on Shellder, Daisymareep on Drifloon, Zane Clarthy on Pawniard, HootingLilligant on DW Eevee, Houka on Woobat, *Murkrow on Solosis, Dangertrout on Growlithe(I'm envious), Lunafloon on Snivy and TheMaster on Registeel! Sorry if I missed anyone. I wish some extra good luck to those on longer hunts: don't give in, it has to shine eventually! As for me I'm at 1084 SR's for Articuno and 4,879 RE's for Eevee. I've also changed my hunt from a Lapras SR in SS to a RE hunt in Union Cave for either Rattata, Geodude, Zubat or Onix. All are great shinies so I'm not to fussed about what I get. I'll be spending a day on each hunt which means I can dedicate two days to each hunt then Sunday will be for whatever I feel like hunting for most. Will be continuing Eevee hunting for the rest of the day, so fingers crossed. Good luck to everyone as always.

    Wow, that Shiny Pawniard is very cool, I always like the blue color too ! That's what we call being lucky, right ? Good luck on your Badge Quest, too.
    I think you're probably right, Papousse. I guess that Webby sticks now ... pun not intended there. But it's probably best to just keep her name as that. Also, I can't believe how blue the Pawniard (now Bisharp) actually looks on a DS screen. It's really quite beautiful.

    I believe we all feel this way a lot, so I just wanted to let you know that it's okay to vent about it. As mentioned, though, there's a number of things you can do to make things less mentally draining, though, and that's things such as listening to music or watching TV or whatever. It's like listening to music when you exercise. It really makes the time fly by. Also, you could start by collecting a few boxes of eggs and then when you go to hatch them, it doesn't feel as long because a lot of the egg steps have been done already. Maybe once you've hatched one box, you collect another box to replace them, so that you constantly have something to hatch. What I've been doing recently is collecting a lot of boxes of eggs while listening to music. I then hatch three boxes, and then replace those three boxes with more eggs. It might sound dumb, but it feels as if there's really not that much work to replace the eggs you've hatched and you will be hatching some more again in no time! I feel that if I'm not doing something simultaneously when hatching eggs, especially, it can really drag on and get very tedious. At least with eggs, there's not really any chance of a shiny escaping, so you can be a bit more lax with paying attention. Good luck, Papousse. Don't give up!

    Not sure whether this is directed at me or not, Shine, but I don't really use Synchroniser due to the fact that I like to have unique natures on my shinies. It might sound dumb, but I feel that it's a bit of a surprise what the nature is going to be, and it makes my shiny even more unique than anyone elses. And it sort of gives them all a bit more of a personality. No, I don't talk to my shiny Pokemon or anything weird like that! It's just I enjoy not know when the shiny will appear, what shiny it will be, and what nature or ability it might have. That sort of thing. Hopefully it makes sense. I don't competitively battle, so a correct nature isn't really something I crave, though I do EV train, go figure ...

    Kitty, what are you going to do when and if the second Eeveelution for Gen 6 is announced? They will probably have Sylveon's counterpart in the game somewhere! Just think, yet another shiny Eevee to catch! I wonder what it will look like.

    Oh, here's a sort of boring question for people, but of all the gen 6 Pokemon you've seen so far (because there's so many of them!) is there any one in particular you definitely want to get the shiny for of, despite not knowing what it will look like?

    Well, it took 11,096 attempts, but I FINALLY have a pink Virizion. Keep in mind that I've mostly done 500 of these a day, four times a week, which I haven't completely been keeping schedule-I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER WHEN I STARTED. I'm worried that I won't get to play my Black 2 game before X and Y because of Terrakion(though Cobalion only took 127 tries). Both my longest and shortest attempts at a shiny legendary belong to the same trio

    Omg... please don't remind me that there could be another! If so, I would have 5 more to go instead of just 4 and I'm wanting to move on from this quest already!!! I'm kinda hoping that Sylveon is like a flying type and IF there is another Eeveelution, it would be like a ghost type, or dragon of course. :3

    As for which shinies I am excited about, Sylveon of course and then the Legenday X pokemon. I'm going to eventually get all starters shiny as well, so hopefully they have good shiny versions.

    As for my actual hunt, still puttering along. I am somewhere close to 6500 REs and probably at like 510 eggs hatched out of the 660 obtained. Will be doing some more hunting today. I think my next hunt will be for a shiny Poliwag or Hoppip via MM, but I gotta get this quest done first!

    Happy hunting everyone and good luck!! ^^ congrats on Virizion btw RedJirachi! I can't wait till I finish what I started. I already got Cobalion and Virizion will be my next SR hunt, when I get around to it.

    I really can't say, though I plan to do a Badge Quest on Y. I have a feeling shiny Yveltal is going to be a lot nicer than shiny Xerneas. I don't know about the starters or Sylveon right now, or the Mewtwo thing. My guess for The Mewtwo thing is that it will be the same green when shiny as Mewtwo is, if it is a forme of Mewtwo and not a new pokémon, in which case I couldn't even guess.

    As of yesterday I now possess shiny snubbull, chansey, and more miltank. Right now I'm hunting for shiny magnemite, aron, and still looking for solrock. I now own shiny magnemite and aron. Also after 1,386 and then 1,743 times fishing I catch lv5 shiny female adamant magikarp and lv4 female jolly magikarp respectively. Still have yet to find shiny solrock

If you decided to do what I am doing and try to get them all together at one time instead of separating the hunts, you will get VERY bored, VERY fast. I only am not doing this hunt off and on because I want to have an accurate estimate of how long it took me to get all 9. I cannot wait to get these last 4! Right now I am at 360 eggs hatched out of 660 collected and at 6300 REs.

    If you decide to do this shiny Eevee quest, I wish you good luck!

    Happy hunting everyone and congrats on all dem shinies!
    Wow,I'm jealous.That was my first Eevee.:P
    I'm planning to get all Eeveelutions including the new one.Plus a shiny Eevee that is not going to evolve.
    I haven't been keeping count though.The first one was my longest MM ever.I lost count in the middle.XD
    Good luck on your hunt! ^^
    Congratz to every one who got their shiny since the last time I posted.Zane on Pawniard,Daisymareep on Drifloon,Hootinglilligant on Eevee,*Murkrow on Solosis,The master on Registeel and the rest(so many).

    I started to collect eggs to my hunt few minutes ago and I have to admit, listening music is very motivating ! Maybe I won't be saying this anymore due to the upcoming result, ahah.
    I'm making 3 boxes this time and I hope I could get it in one of those 90 eggs. I'll let you guys know if something happened.
    Good luck everyone !
    EDIT : Wow, already two boxes done, one more left and I start hatching ! Three boxes, time to hatch !

    Well, to motivate myself, I'm always saying "It is in that box!" (since I'm hatching box per box). So when it's not there, I'm saying "Don't worry, it's in the next box, just do it.". My goal is to have it under 500 eggs. Or else, well, under 1000.
    I've just reached the 300 eggs hatched bar !

    Hiya everyone! Congratulations to all of you who have gotten shiny Pokemon over the past few weeks. Keep up the great work everyone! It has been a while since I posted mainly because I haven't gotten a shiny in what feels like a very long time :/ I have decided to work on a shiny rain team to go with my drizzle Politoed. My current target is Lapras and I have hatched around 400 eggs so far. Lets hope for a short hunt ^.^ Until next time.

    GL on all you guys' hunts. A lot of MMing and BQ going on.

    Just a minor update. I've reached 3,000 RE's in my fish hunt. I decided to switch tiles yesterday and now I'm finding more Poliwag (which is a good thing). Watching “Live Shiny” videos in LG/FR also motivated me a lot.

    Also up to about 200 or so SR's for shiny Totodile in Crystal. Not keeping count on this hunt, just guesstimating the amount.

    Grats to daisymareep, Zane Clarthy, Houka, HootingLilligant, *Murkrow, TheMaster327, ohjeezitskim, RedJirachi! and anyone else I might have missed since my last update!
    @Papousse, You're nearly there! Try to have large goals, such as "Okay I think I will get it around 500 eggs" If you get past 500, then aim for 1000! It helps motivate you and hunt faster, or at least that's what I do :P

    @Shine: For REing it's because I am using illuminate to rack up more encounters. I remember when I was dual hunitng in petilil forest, I had illuminate in only one of the games. The one with illuminate had pretty much 2 encoutners for every one encounter I had in the other game.
    For SRing, I only SR'ed once, and that was for my badgequest in SS recently, I thinking about using a synchronizer though in my future SR hunts~

    @Zane Clarthy: I'm looking forward to Sylveon, Froakie, and Chespin's shinies! Fennekin has similar colors to torchic shiny so unless the shiny is completely different, i feel like it's shiny will be like torchic's regular colors, haha.

    As for a future hunt, I'm not sure what I want to hunt next. I know I definietly want to SR, as I only have 2 weeks of school left and it has been putting tons of stress on me, so I dont want to waste too much time on shiny hunting. I'm probably gonna SR for a shiny Volcarona, I just need to find a Timid Snychronizer

    Congrats on everyone's recent shinies!

    I'm now at 15,678 REs at Route 32 in SS. I think that this hunt is going to surpass my 1st shiny magnemite hunt. I'm going to finish up some homework now and continue hunting later.

    Good luck everybody!

    Congrats cocoa! Great shiny! Massive congrats to everyone else as well who have grabbed shinies since I've last posted.

    I've been ridiculously busy lately with it all finishing with being best man at my best friends wedding on Saturday, so now my schedule has completely freed up and I've decided to start hunting again. So far today I've done 200 SR's for Turtwig so I'm looking forward to continuing tomorrow.
