    Congratulations City of Delusion! Wonderful Congratulations pokemaster13, Master Leo, and everyone else who has gotten shinies. I haven't posted in this thread in a while, but I've been reading! I'm finally back to Pokemon, which of course means shiny hunting. Right now I'm just messing around with a random multi-MM. It includes Munna and Cleffa. Due to the rumors of a fairy type in X + Y, I'm kinda going to focus on those likely to be fairy. Even if it isn't true, they are still shinies, right? Might go for an eevee in order to get a shiny sylveon.

    Good luck everyone

    What is this luck!?? After only 173 eggs, my 2nd shiny Zangoose hatches! and...



    WITH ITS DREAM WORLD ABILITY!

    The moment it hatched all I could do is just gasp, but before I got any more excited I checked its ability and when I saw Toxic boost I was all like "HELL YEAHH!@!" So, Community hunt complete x5! So that makes 12 shinies this month which is just unbelievable. I'm gonna take a break from MMing and finally do some RE hunting with the shiny charm which I haven't done yet. I still have 4 boxes of eggs to hatch through which is pretty annoying but if I happen to hatch another shiny Zangoose I'll give it away to someone. So for now, I'll just Ev train some shinies and probably play around with the PWT before I start hunting again.

    Good luck everyone!!
    Congratulation ! At least you didn't listen to me, wich is a pretty good thing, eheh... Sorry. '
    12 shinies this month, and maybe not over if you hatch another on in those boxes ? What is your record in number of shinies in a month you had (if it isn't this one) ? Was the first Zangoose you've got was a female too (just by pure curiosity) ?
    On my side, well, I'm not surprise to have nothing yet, I think I've might reach only the 300 soft resets on my secret hunt. Even if I have something else to do (like, mh, Spanish studies, Call of Duty : Black Ops 2, Halo 4), I would like it to shine soon. I would be free from that hunt and I would not have to worry if I will get it one day. Oh well..
    Good luck everyone, another month is almost over, but there's more to come.

    Talking about next month, I'm kinda disapointed. Yes, the community hunt has been placed but didn't we got a very similar community hunt in March (hunting for a Grass and/or Bug type) ? It's not because May, a spring month, is approaching that we couldn't get something interesting, like obtain a Dragon, Ghost, Fire, Normal types. Something... different. That wouldn't be more interesting ? I'm not a kind of person who loves to get a shiny to match with the community hunt but for those who do, it's pretty repetitive since I saw a lot of them getting (if they did the community hunt) a Grass type in March... I'm just saying, maybe I'm completely wrong and I don't mind to be answered back.

    Congrats City of Delusion on DW Zangoose, pokemaster13 on Litwick, Master Leo on Piloswine, and sorry to Helio on 2 uncatchable Poochyenas.

    I'm now at 12,735 REs on Route 35, but I'm still going surprisingly strong.

    Good luck on everyone's hunts!

    Oh in addition, I'm extremely paranoid that Cute Charm is negatively messing with the odds.

    congrats to everyone that got shinies since my last post in april 27th, but, a big one to Heliotrope, who finally got the thundurus.
    SR hunts can be very boring, and it takes nuts to don't give up!

    i am on one now, around 4000 SR's , btw, hunting on only one DS, so it will take more time than my RE's ones =(


    anyways, good luck to everyone
    Please, feel free to check my channel in youtube. I started recording my attempts on shinies!

    Hey, I tried. The forests contain normals, darks and waters, in addition to the bugs and grass. but everyone voted for the water/grass theme (it seriously got triple the votes), so what can you do?
    Summer is coming, so a fire type theme will be among the choices next time at least. and I think we're overdue for a chaining hunt, so I'll try to remember to put that on the June list as well.

    I think I'm going to MM Phione for a bit, since it could qualify for either month. When we roll into May I'll focus more on my Virizion SR hunt.

    @Charizardmaster, I haven't heard of CC messing with the shiny odds negatively so I wouldn't worry about it. You're probably just hitting an unlucky streak

    TOLD YOU CoD!! XD. i knew DW Zangoose would shine quickly(if it were being MMd on my game atm itd probably take a few months NON-STOP MMing to maybe find a shiny itself let alone a DW Ability one :P

    11215 REs atm...which is suprising considering my last 3 REd hunts at the Dreamyard were all under 6k REs...just unlucky i suppose..anyways the other point of this post(other then the update) is i figured id post my 7 Rumble Shinies(not including the 2 or 3 you get from passwords)

    Hardy-Magnezone-2151
    Punchy-Glameow-1133
    Gutsy-Blastoise-702
    Speedy-Arcanine-684
    Mighty-Rapidash-656
    FireGuard-Charmeleon-405(useless Trait...)
    NormalGuard-Meowth-172

    ofc everyone below Magnezone is useless in EX levels..but sometimes downgrade to Normal levels to use them(especially Blastoise, Gutsy ROCKS!)

    Good Luck on all hunts!

    Maybe we can just not have any type specific community hunt options for one of the upcoming months and just put up options that fall under more creative themes? Just throwing ideas out there...

    Meanwhile, Giratina is finally coming along more smoothly, now nearing 3500 SR's, hopefully coming to an end sometime in the near future. I could be having a lot worse, though, since my last shiny was only April 5th. I did hope for more from the month of my birthday, but hey, maybe I'll have more luck and motivation next month. For now, good luck on those hunts everyone!

    OR if no one wants the type specific choice, don't vote for it. Although, some people happen to like type-specific hunts, even if they're redundant.
    Equally, if you don't like what was chosen, do your own thing until a CH that you like rolls around.
    There will never be a choice that EVERYONE wants. That's just the way it is.
    And btw, I DO collect suggestions that people leave on my wall and try to put them on the list as much as possible. (sometimes I forget, because you know... surgery... maybe cancer... but I try to put them all as much as possible)

    My first one was male and my record for most shinies in 1 month was back in January 2012, I got 16!

    I'm nearly done Ev training Cresselia and Stunfisk but I still have shiny Zangoose, Wynaut, Mesprit, and Misdreavus to EV up.

    Gratz on that Alomomola, ChaChi. It looks amazing, I kinda want one now xD.

    Thanks for the gratz you all and good luck, guys.

    Is 207 Hatched Bagon eggs a lot for trying to hatch a shiny? Or am I barely touching the surface of the amount I might get

    Edit: I'm also MMing the eggs.

    Sorry about that uncatchable shiny, Helio >.> Figures, you get a quick shiny after that long hunt but it can't be caught...Argh, and now 2?!

    HOLY MILTANK! Well, congrats and good luck!


    Haven't had much time to play these last few days with work and family visiting...But tonight I kept working on Staraptor (now Lv. 40, Empoleon is Lv. 50), and did a few other things...Did all the battles on the routes to the next gym (and one route past that city), and went through the Solaceon Ruins and caught all letters of Unown. I want Shinx asap, so for that reason, I was hoping not to find a shiny Unown, but I really wouldn't mind one...

    I'm off work until Friday (I should bite my tongue, or I'll get called in), and the family that was visiting left earlier today, so I should get some hunting done Once I'm finished training Staraptor, I might go back to dual hunting on Black 2 for Growlithe.

    Good luck hunting, everyone!

    I know its been awhile since I posted anything worth while. I recently got a copy of Black 2 (just to kill the time til October). So I'm playing it not trying to do any shiny hunting because frankly I love shinies but i think I have officially lost my mind doing it. I just got my 3rd Badge thought oh cool I love catching pokemon in the Desert Resort. On my 14th Encounter, a pink Darumaka shows up on my 3DS. I caught him with so much glee I fought what it was like to actually get an RE Pokemon without trying. He's level 15 and was transferred to my white 2 game with the other 4 boxes of shinies. Congrads to everyone else that has hatched, caught and/or traded keep up the good work and good luck all my friends.
    My Shiny list has grown more than the sig can handle. No biggie I'm a shiny hunter and proud of my many many shinies. I'm always looking for more to complete my shiny living pokedex. I know it sounds crazy but I'm up to 16 boxes. I do have many extra shinies that I'm willing trade for ones I'm missing. My top ten shinies I'm looking right now are: 1) Arbok 2) Hypno 3) Natu 4) Regice 5)Plusle 6) Groundon 7) Torkoal 8)Snover 9) Cobalion 10) Spritzee. I need many more but I figure listing a few wouldn't hurt.

    General grats to everyone on their recent shinies! Good job finishing the Community Hunt on the last day especially, Pokepro.

    No news on my end, just been doing some thinking. I decided that, since this is my first time through Black 2 (or White 2), that I just want to catch the Virizion, instead of trying to SR it, especially since SRing it now will hinder my progress through the main story, and doing it later may be too far in the month to make it feasible. My second plan was SRing in a Hidden Grotto, but I looked it up, and apparently the Pokemon there are fully generated when they're spawned, so that's not possible either.

    My new plan for the May Community Hunt, then, is simply to RE in Virbank City for a shiny Frillish. The only real downside to this plan is that I can't ride my bike, but on the plus side I can get a certain RE goal per day, while still being able to take a break and actually progress through the game, which I couldn't do if I, say, SRed the Jellicent in Undella Bay. I'd love a male one, though, since I love the green coloration on a Jellicent.

    This will be my first time ever actually hunting for a shiny. Any tips or tricks to make the REs come faster? Any flaws in my plan? Any better methods of hunting a teal Frillish?

    And in addition, what's everyone else planning on hunting for the next Community Hunt?

    Thanks City of Delusion, Omishka for the help and Cpchris for the Thanks

    So far I've reset 75 times and counting for Lappy.

    I also acquired a Shiny Gible! For defeating Benga in the Black Tower, I'm probably going to keep him Non evolved since he has the most distinctive colour change out of his evolution line.

    Hey guys, I've found another shiny in Ruby...

    ... and this time it's the Mudkip. n__n

    Shiny Mudkip starts my Badge Quest

    It took 4316 soft resets altogether, so it was a nice quick hunt compared to shiny Thundurus. I also found those two uncatchable shiny Poochyena while hunting Mudkip. So that's four 1/8192 shinies in four days. Maybe this will end up being a 'lucky' Ruby file? ... Cue the 2nd BQ shiny taking about 20,000 encounters. XD

    Good luck on your own hunts, guys.


    Edit: I just got my Pokedex in Ruby, and since I have a Collosseum bonus disc, I've just transfered over a lovely (sadly non-shiny) Jirachi to Ruby. I keep hoping that one day I'll get a shiny Jirachi from my bonus disc. I've seen someone on youtube that's managed to get one.

    Oddly enough my Gamecube glitched up this time, and instead of showing the animation of Jirachi flying around the screen surrounded by sparkles, it just stayed on the "the Gamecube is communicating with the GBA, please don't turn off the power" screen.

    Good to be back. It sucks, because I lost my white 2 cartridge, and now I either have to buy a new one, or I have to find this one to continue with my SR's. Not that it matters, because the game has been dealing me cruel hands when it comes to shinies. Anyways have any of you ever had a friend or relative make a dumb trade with a shiny. My cousin had an unintentional shiny Pelipper, and he traded it for an EGG. The egg was a Magikarp.

    The only trade I've had involving a shiny actually worked in my favour. All I did was trade a magikarp egg and bagged myself a shiny pelipper... was so happy! I kid of course but I never like receiving shinies that I haven't worked for myself but I've traded a few away that I've had doubles of.

    Congrats helio on Mudkip and to the other recent shinies.

    On my last box of eggs before I need to start stocking again.

    Good luck everyone.
