    Congrats on all the new shinies, May seems really lucky so far!

    I'm now at 22,340 SR's for Torchic. I forgot how much I hate this. I think I hate this more than anything else in the world, I'm predicting I get to maybe 24K before I get fed up and take a break from it again.

    Good luck and I hope the luck continues!

I don't like Shellos anyways, and the shiny doesn't change much, which makes it even more of a waste =\ Buizel is kind of meh...Not bad, but not something I'm really after. Bidoof I wouldn't really mind since I'd have a shiny HMer (maybe that's why Bidoof's grown on me). Pachirisu is kind of nice, and I do like its shiny form. That 45% chance of Shellos just really bothers me though.

    Doh >.< Just checked the percentages of the pokemon there and noticed Bidoof isn't even there in Platinum :x I did think of trying there since I have the chance for Pachirisu which isn't a bad thing, but 203 has a slightly higher chance for Shinx, and an overall higher percentage for shinies I'm hoping for in general. Thanks for the suggestion though since Shiny Pachirisu would be pretty neat.
    Oh yeah, I don't like Shellos much either, I thought maybe you'll like it. I prefer its blue variation (the pink is ugly) and the shiny color isn't that bad. 45% for a Pokémon that we aren't looking for is pretty high (Pachirisu and Shinx with Static gives a total of 45% combined, just to give an idea), but if you end by getting another Starly, you wouldn't regret ? And I have to admit, Gastrodon gives you a hard time without a Grass type move in your team, eheh.
    I'll let you hunt for now, I really hoping you get that Shinx, it's very nice to get a shiny that we are really looking for.
    Congratulations to the recent shinies (and City on that 150th!) and good luck to everyone !

    Huge congrats to Wyverndust on the Snivy, COD on the Relicanth (I LOVE shiny Relicanth *cuddles his own*) and any other shinies I might've missed! This month is just getting better and better when it comes to shinies!

    I've reached around 960ish SRs for Turtwig since I started it yesterday. What can I say, I know how limited I am with regards to hunting time over the next few weeks due to exams and mock papers out of the wazoo, so I'm trying to reach a certain amount (around 2000ish maybe?) before I stop to focus solely on my exams! While it would be nice for Turtwig to be relatively quick, I wouldn't mind too much if it was fairly long either. Totally indifferent to make it short! Hoping the rest of the month brings us yet more sparkly beauties to relish in!

    1/8192 shinies thus far: Around 130+

    congrats to crashandcortex for chimchar, MR DS BOY on skorupi, cocoadragon on that amazing steelix, Laurelai on lotad, cocoadragon on cyndaquil, Dangertrout on that phione, ohjeezitskim on shelder, Wyverndust on that snivy, City of Delusion for that relicanth (amazing shiny).
    Well, i guess this is it, xD!

    As for me, still SRing for my secret target.. reached 10000 SRs yesterday..
    and, while SRing, i did some chaining. Yes. Again.
    And i succeeded in the first try! (i am doing this way: i try to chain the swarm pokemon, and i have only one shot, if it breaks, i give up... i am doing this cause chaining is way easier then the other methods.. so...)

    but, here is the video of it:

    Also, good luck to everyone, and i've noticed something odd.. TOO MANY CYNDAQUILS
    Please, feel free to check my channel in youtube. I started recording my attempts on shinies!

    I restarted Diamond and decided not to hunt Chimchar and just casually play through hoping for a random shiny, I look fowrawd to the Pokéradar and tweaking to get Shaymin.

    Did some more SRs for Turtwig, but I haven't been hunting much since I'm still playing Diamond.

    Saaatoshi!

    Hey sorry but another quick question, is it possible to SR the online event pokemon like the current Deoxys? I would like to attempt it but obviously not if it's impossible. Oh and congratulations to everyone's latest shinies you all have a lot more patience than me

    If I fish long enough, I should be able to get a shiny on the hook, shouldn't I? Trying to catch a shiny magikarp for the red gyarados

    From what I've read, the event Deoxys can't be shiny. Typically, the 5th Gen events are not SRable for shininess.

    Yes, you can fish for shinies. Good luck with Magikarp!

    I've been kinda busy since I last posted and here is an update on shiny male Frillish. I caught it in a Premier ball(the I almost always use to catch shinies). It's nickname is Phantom. It has a Hasty nature, and the IV judge said"it's overall potential is above average and it's best potential speed is fantastic."

    I've also decided to do a special hunt for my self, that I'm calling my shiny conquest. Basically what I'm doing is choosing a group of pokemon based on their appearance. Right now I'm after all bird-like pokemon, here's a list:
    Pidgey, Spearow, Psyduck(not completely sure if I should have it in here),Farfetch'd, Doduo, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Natu, Murkrow, Delibird, Skarmory, Lugia, Ho-oh, Torchic, Taillow, Wingull, Swablu, Piplup, Starly, Chatot, Pidove, Sigilyph, Archen, Ducklett, Rufflet, and Vullaby.

    As I have listed it's all first form pokemon. I'll still be able to do the CH, I can hunt Ducklett and Wingull for it. It's just something I thought up, wish me luck. Congrats on recent shinies and good luck to all ongoing hunts. I also apologize about the huge post, I just wanted to show you all my plans.

    Gratz on the Voltorb, 201238. :]

    Well guys, my luck just won't stop.



    Shiny freaking Tropius after 1610 REs. Community hunt complete x3!

    I've caught a bit of a cold lately so I haven't been super motivated to hunt but I decided to do some hunting while watching YT videos and this beauty decides to shine. Tropius was one of my main wants from this route so I'm glad I finally got one. The nature is Timid which is actually one of the best natures for it and it has Solar Power as its ability so I can't be happier. I want some longer hunts so I'm gonna switch back over to MMing since I seem to have terrible luck with it most of the time lol. I'm kinda regretting getting the shiny charm tbh, I like short hunts but I've gotten 4 RE shinies in under 5k REs! Hopefully I get more challenging hunts in the near future. I've decided to go for Clamperl on SS via swarm, there's a chance I may get another Tentacool/cruel but I'm willing to risk it. I think I'm also gonna MM the recently popular Lotad on Black 2 since I really love shiny Ludicolo.

    *gives all my luck to everyone* I don't want it anymore! Lol.

    Congratulations all y'all on your shinies! I had an extraordinary spot of luck today! Yesterday I got my shiny Lotad, and today after a whopping 70 eggs, I got my shiny swift swim poliwag! Pink and blue rainy frog here I come! Community hunt #2 complete!!

    http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m...ps53f30ac4.jpg

    Funny thing was, when I was hatching the eggs, I wasn't paying attention, and looked down just after it hatched to note that instead of not choosing to name it, I had selected to choose a name. Since I wasn't paying attention, and assumed that it was another non-shiny, I just poked at letter and called it done. I named him "o". When I looked again, "o" had a star, and I said "oh!!" I changed it to Ikakogi, which is a species of glass frog.... the little frogs who's innards you can see

    Guess I have to find a ditto now with perfect attack so I can begin breeding for a rain team physical attacker!

    Hmm...Yeah, I think I'll take just a tiny bit of my luck back, but only to ensure I get Shinx in whatever number of REs, and to try to get shiny Chimchar and Turtwig before I give the game to my friend, and that's it I swear!

    So right after that class thing I had, a friend wanted to hang out, so we went to the mall for a couple hours. Then I got distracted like always, and throughout the night, I kept taking quick naps because I only got 4 hours of sleep last night after watching a movie and waking up for the class...I did manage 100 REs and 30 SRs though. Tomorrow I'll get more done for sure But tonight, I'm just so exhausted that I'm going to bed now.

    Congrats to Laurlai on lotad and poliwag, cocoadragon on cyndaquil, Dangertrout on phione, ohjeezitskim on shellder, Wyverndust on snivy, CityOfDelusion on relicanth and tropius, 201238 on voltorb and any I missed.

    Still no shiny for me. As I expected my White 2 BQ hunt has again gone over 10,000 it is currently at 11,865 making it the longest hunt so far on this BQ. And my hunt for skourpi outside reversal mountain on B2 with the SC is now at 6,172 (11,268 if you include the encounters before grumpig). These two hunts have been my sole focus since my last post.

    Good luck to those still hunting.

    Still going with my Lapras hunt, im up to 402 sr's. I'm not playing as much SS as I'd like though, as I'm spending alot of time playing B2 creating and training a Battle Team.

    Hello everyone. Congratulations to all shinies since my last post.

    Ok I have hatched another box of Bagon and a few more Eevee but no shiny yet. I am thinking about starting my white 2 now.. I got it at Christmas but it is still unopened lol. I was going to trade over a shiny team but I think I will just go with 3 shinies to trade over. I am a bit disappointed though that if I upload my Skarmory from Emerald that it'll lose the data of where I hatched it. I know it is just a little thing but it does irritate me. I was wondering if others (who have uploaded shinies from gen III games to Gen IV) have kept a record somewhere of where the shiny was obtained and if so what did you do? I really wanna upload this shiny skarmory as she is my first 1/8192 from an egg ever so would appreciate any advice.

    I will be going back to hatching Bulbasaur and Squirtle on white version soon. I have almost completed the nationaldex on white version now so MMing will be back to normal. I may try throwing in Snivy and Oshawott too for the CH. On black 2, for now I will continue with Bagon and Eevee until all the remaining 6 boxes are hatched but I think I may return to REing somewhere. I want to complete the CH first though so hopefully I will get a grass or water pokemon to shine for me quickly and then I can find somewhere to hunt. Or I could try SRing for a shiny Cresselia...
    Shinies are good.
