    Congratz to WaterTypesFTW on Budew, Laurelai on Eevee, Cpchris on Piplup (you're on a roll!), Thowra on Altaria, RedJirachi on Terrakion, and JAWAYami on Pawniard!

    Well I was pretty busy yesterday so I didn't get to hunt much. I've only hatched about 30 eggs for Zangoose so far but I'll be more focused today. I also managed to Ev train my shiny Houndour and Absol but I noticed there are a few other shinies I need to Ev train so after Zangoose decides to shine I'll be focusing on EVing them up. Well, that's all for now, good luck everyone!

And Route 203 is where I'll be hunting I might move to 202 in the mornings just for the supposed extra 5%, though there's also a 15% less chance of Starly (and consequently, an overall 10% less chance of finding one of the shinies I want). Hopefully Abra doesn't shine though, because I won't be transferring any pokemon over to keep him from teleporting >.<
    Oh, I completely forgot about Abra on this route, knowing only Teleport... If only you could have a Zubat or a Gastly for that one. Oh well, guess you'll just have to pray that, if an Abra shines, to get it in the first Pokéball you throw...
    EUREKA! I have the right thing ! If you go to the Oreburgh Mine and catch a Onix, it will possibly know Bind, wich prevents a Pokémon to escape (if I think correctly)! What do you think about that solution ? It's near by and you won't be in need of transfering a Pokémon! If I was you, that's what I would do. And if this Pokémon cannot flee when it shines, well you can just switch out if you want or still using Onix to help you out.

    Shiny Johto trio completed!!

    Looks like I won the race cocoadragon! *victory dances* =p Nature is Naughty which is pretty good and its a male. I have no idea what to hunt next but I haven't done a RE hunt in awhile so I'll probably do that after I pick a location.

    Gratz to 201238 on Meowth and good luck everyone!

    Congrats on the shiny Toto, Delusion.

    I haven't been working on my LG BQ as much as usual but its still going. At 4,260 RE's and hoping for anything but Golbat.

    In my Crystal BQ, I'm now hunting on Route 32 at night. Not counting encouters but I hope Gastly shines there.

    GL on all you guys hunts.

    Keep trying, you can do it

    It took me two months for Virizion, three months if you also count January where I am SR-ing Cresselia instead - speaking of Cresselia, I should continue SR-ing her again one day, but right now, I should finish my other target first~

    And I'm very sure there are other people who keep trying for more than a month.

    In retrospect, a water type hunt would have been great for last month, because then we could have had "April showers bring May flowers". That's where the first options inspiration comes from
    Hopefully it's not Option 3, that's the hardest and IMO, the most boring one

    But then again, if Option 3 wins, then that means I can ignore May's CH, and start SR-ing Cresselia again XD

    I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

    SHINY STARLY

    I just don't even know what to say or think anymore. Wat. 101 encounters into the game. 101. Just 101. Since Piplup. 101 encounters. Adamant nature, Loves to eat, female (not quite what I wanted, but not too bothered by it either). Stats: Lvl 5, 20//12//8//7//8//11...IVs looking pretty bad so far - 25//19//9//9//9//9

    I just can't even fathom this anymore. This is the third day in a row of finding a shiny.

    So I was thinking about asking this, but thought "Nah, won't happen anyways", though clearly I was wrong...: Should I count this as a BQ shiny? I'm nowhere even near getting to the first gym since I have nearly all of Piplups EVs left to get (taking a while). Should I just consider it a shiny outside of the BQ and not an actual shiny for my BQ since it's not after the first gym? Even though it's a shiny, I kind of feel like I'd be cheating if I used it since I've gotten it too early. On the other hand, it's one of the other shinies I was desperately hoping for and really wanted to find on my BQ. I realize it's my BQ, but I'm curious to see what you guys think about it. I'm completely 50/50 on it right now. Oh, and I do plan on coming back here to hunt anyways, since I'm still hoping for Shinx, so there's a chance I might find another shiny Starly at a more appropriate time =\

    I'm on shiny overload right now, so I'm going to try to offer my luck to those who really need it right now, like Helio and CeeCee. I seriously don't even know what to make of this right now.


    EDIT: I just have to say, when I saw it appear, in my head I was like "that's brown. that's it's shiny form. But that's not even possible." It felt like a half minute went by before I saw the sparkles.

    EDIT 2: Oh, and I was able to use ONLY my Piplup to catch it. I wanted to try to do as much as possible in this BQ with just my shinies. Good thing that Bubble move was so weak; to think I was upset with that before >.>

    You're kidding, right ? 101 encounters and you already got it ? Well, what a surprise...
    If I was you, I would put it in my PC until I get my first badge. But don't bother you saying if it's too soon, if you look like cheating. A shiny is a shiny and I don't think you should hunt again to get another one (maybe another Starly) at the "appropriate moment" just to hit the 10 000 encounters bar. You're just very very very lucky this week and if I was you, I would be very happy. Don't feel weird because you've got another one, be content, you got another shiny without more efforts than that. And it's a very good thing, if you ask me.
    Then, Starly is a beautiful shiny. It's a girl, yeah, but I think Staraptor's shiny form looks more feminine a little bit since of that pale blue on the feather of the head.
    I don't know why you feel different because you're lucky. It happens to people sometime, and I'm pretty sure you're not the first one to have a second shiny before their first gym in their badge quest (but again, I haven't made a badge quest in my game so I can't say that like if I was playing through one). You decide what you wanna do with it. You won't regret it, so take it as a BQ shiny.

    This is another idea. Like City Of Delusion said, keep it like that. It's maybe surprising to have one so soon but hey, it's not like it was going to happen twice (who knows ?). Maybe your next hunt will finish in like 10 000 encounters (like I said) so you definitely should keep Starly.

    Gratz on the Starly, Cpchris! I think you should definitely count it as a BQ shiny, just beat the first two gyms to keep it even. Also, if you don't mind me asking, why Ev train your BQ shinies? Its just, I don't think it'd make that much of a difference in the main game and it could save you some time. It could also remove the chance of getting an unintentional shiny but its up to you!

    I've started my secret hunt for the greatest pokemon ever! I'm only about 300 encounters in but wait until you guys see it.. It'll blow your mind!

    Well, you know how I said my DS's right trigger stopped working?
    I was opening the lid as usual and suddenly I heard a pop, at first I thought it was the hinge...
    the funny thing was, it was the hinge. Well, I can safely say, after four years, my limited edition DS is permanently decommissioned.
    So with that, my dotting mother is loaning me hers (I'm not opting to touch my 3DS until AC:NL is released since I'm paranoid now).

    300 eggs for my target.

    Community Hunt Complete x2!

    I couldn't post this yesterday, but I hatched a shiny Cyndaquil! I reached 1,400 Tepig eggs and got bored of seeing the orange pig, so I switched to my old Cyndaquil MM hunt and finally found one! I would have preferred shiny Tepig, although I really like Cyndaquil as well.

    http://imageshack.us/a/img694/8401/img0113pf.jpg

    And as for my future hunts, I have my next two planned out. First I'll be SRing for shiny Uxie, followed by some REs for a shiny Litwick. My Black hunt has now reached almost 13,000 random encounters in the double grass, so I'm not expecting anything from that hunt anytime soon. Congrats on the recent shinies and good luck everyone!

    I've seen that others have had success at getting a shiny starter doing SRs. Hoping that I'll get a shiny Cyndaquil soon, so that I can start a BQ in HG, only at 170 SRs so far.
    I'd also like to ask a quick question. I know that you'll see that the starter is shiny before you fight your rival, but will you know it's shiny when it's walking with you. I'm just not sure, I go as far as talking to Elm then checking stats. Am I wasteing my time doing that, please help.
    Congrats on all that got shinies and good luck on ongoing hunts.

    Congrats to YNCRN, ohjeezitskim x2, Cpchris x4, wiccan11, ChaChi x14? (you had some good chains), ZaneClarthy, JohnNiles, Jessara, JAWAYami x2, CityofDelusion x2, Laurelai, Thowra, RedJirachi, 201238, Crimson_Blazer, pokemaster13 and any I missed.

    I finished my playthrough of White a couple of days ago and as of yesterday I am now dual hunting to reclaim cobalion on both black and white. I gave up on MMing skorupi on Black as it was just taking to long. So instead on my Black 2 I went back to hunting outside reversal mountain in the hopes of getting skorupi there over the weekend. I spent the weekend both REing and MMing skorupi but changed to an RE hunt only yesterday. After 5,096 encounters with the shiny charm. I did not get the skorupi I've been hunting for nearly 2 months now. I got a Grumpig instead. Still happy as its a shiny I don't have. I'm going to continue hunting at reversal mountain for skorupi though.

    Had another break from hunting but came back to it this evening because I needed something to keep me awake. Just hit 1030 eggs for shiny Yanma so I'm over the odds now. Kinda annoyed, seeing as this is going to be my last hunted shiny and I just want to get it done. Will do some more later today after I get some rest.

    Congrats on the new shinies since my last post.

    Have you never seen the thousands of videos of people getting HG/SS shiny staters or even the picture I posted of my Totodile a few posts up o_o!? You can tell if its shiny before you pick it.

    Gratz to Crimson_Blazer on Chikorita, pokemaster13 on Cyndaquil, and Cyndajay on Grumpig! Nice work guys.

    If I was you, I would put it in my PC until I get my first badge. But don't bother you saying if it's too soon, if you look like cheating. A shiny is a shiny and I don't think you should hunt again to get another one (maybe another Starly) at the "appropriate moment" just to hit the 10 000 encounters bar. You're just very very very lucky this week and if I was you, I would be very happy. Don't feel weird because you've got another one, be content, you got another shiny without more efforts than that. And it's a very good thing, if you ask me.
    Then, Starly is a beautiful shiny. It's a girl, yeah, but I think Staraptor's shiny form looks more feminine a little bit since of that pale blue on the feather of the head.
    I don't know why you feel different because you're lucky. It happens to people sometime, and I'm pretty sure you're not the first one to have a second shiny before their first gym in their badge quest (but again, I haven't made a badge quest in my game so I can't say that like if I was playing through one). You decide what you wanna do with it. You won't regret it, so take it as a BQ shiny.
    Oh I'm very happy with it for sure I'm just so baffled by all this luck! And I'm not really upset by it being female; to be honest, I was kind of half and half on what I wanted its gender to be from the start.

    As for counting it as part of my BQ, I think I just need to take some time to think it over. Though at this point, I'm leaning towards counting it towards my BQ.

Its just, I don't think it'd make that much of a difference in the main game and it could save you some time. It could also remove the chance of getting an unintentional shiny but its up to you!

    I've started my secret hunt for the greatest pokemon ever! I'm only about 300 encounters in but wait until you guys see it.. It'll blow you're mind!
    Thanks! I was thinking about not EV training them either since it's just in game anyways :x (and I don't have any plans to really battle competitively, and their IVs aren't fit for it either). I guess it just makes them seem more personal (tbh, I'm 99% sure I'm not EV training them how I "should" be, so it's more pointless than you first thought!) in a way. I was still thinking about not even bothering with it like you said, especially since the pokemon I want to use to train Piplup are less common >.<

    Good luck on your secret hunt, too (greatest ever?! I assume you're hunting an Eevee to evolve into an Umbreon then ;3)!



    Video is up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7bOaUY0kZM
    Kind of funny, I was thinking "Not really any point in recording this, since it's not likely I'll find a shiny this early on anyways". 51 encounters in today, and boom, there she is. And I had just saved at 50 encounters, so my first one after saving! *still excited*

    I went ahead and beat the first gym, since it didn't really matter with what I was training Piplup (now Prinplup) in. And I think I might go ahead and face the second gym. And then after that, I won't have to worry about finding a shiny too early!

    Good luck everyone...Especially those of you with unbelievably long hunts >.< (*throws my undeserved luck at those people*)
