    Um, pretty sure roaming pokemon dont go into the Safari Zone.

    As for me, most of my early day shinies were back when I first got my Gen III games. I never found any in G/S/C except for the Red Gyarados and R/B/Y didnt have shinies.

    Barboach: Found in my Sapphire while fishing in Meteor Falls. iirc, this was my first 1/8192 shiny. I ended up giving this game too my cousin after he lost his Ruby and didn't have anymore Pokemon games. He ended up losing this game too :/

    Oddish: Found this little bugger in the Safari Zone in my Emerald version. At that time I was doin an Ash's Hoenn team (Aipom, Pikachu, and I cant remember tne rest). I evolved into Vileplume and used it constantly. Later down the road, the game got soaked and was unplayable. I still miss the hell out of that Aipom I had trained. It was like lv. 87.

    Spearow: This one was caught in Leafgreen right after I got my balls. Pokeballs that is. Went to go fight my rival with my lv. 8 Bulbasaur and found it. Used it in my whole playthrough. Ended up starting a new file.

    Geodude: Also found in my Leafgreen. iirc, this one was found on Seven Island. All I can say about this one is good thing it didnt explode. Started a new file over her.

    Voltorb: Again, found on my Leafgreen in the Power Plant. Again, started a new file.

    Meditite: My first shiny in Gen IV. Found it on the southern most route from Snowpoint City in Diamond. Was pretty damn happy when I saw it. This is the game where I learned to chain and is kind of my shiny trove game. I got like over 150 chained shinies on it, but I rarely boot up that game anymore. Should trade them over I guess.

    Hey everyone! I FINALLY got myself another Eevee. After 6,832 REs (with the shiny charm I may add...) this new Male (of course) Lonely Adaptabilty Eevee is mine! I am kinda thinking that this is one that I will probably consider leaving as Eevee instead of evolving it, but we will see!

    Anyways, congrats on all recent shinies and I am one step closer to being done with this quest! Yes!

    Caught 3x shiny Stantler tonight! First on a chain of 12, second at 29 and third at 40. Ran out of Max Repels at 42, so I became a reckless chainer, diving into unsafe spots... The chain ended at 55, but with no further shinies...

    First is female, Naughty nature, decent potential, Sp. Atk very good. IV spread: 4 - 20 / 0 - 9 / 16 - 25 / 20 / 0, 2 / 0 - 13
    Second is female, Docile nature, decent potential, Attack fantastic. IV spread: 21 - 28 / 28 / 10 - 24 / 0 - 12 / 21 - 27 / 0 - 12
    Third is male, Impish nature, relatively superior potential, Attack can't be better. IV spread: 4 - 20 / 31 / 10 - 25 / 14 - 28 / 21 - 31 / 15 - 29

    No contest in which I'm keeping!

But hey, I'm glad I got even one!

    Holy crap, so lucky! I SR'd for a shiny Volcarona for what was most likely a good 3000-4000 times, and no luck D:

    Must have been a mistake, or a glitch caused by hacking.

    Like what Master Leo said, roaming Pokemon do not go into Safari Zone, and furthermore its shininess is set at the time of its release into the wild, so if it is shiny the first time you encounter it, it will always be shiny the next time you encounter it again.






    As for me......400 Oshawott eggs, still no shiny. Hopefully I'll get one before 500, or this will be my second longest MM hunt

    Ya know, I've heard both of those things, but both of my cousins and I remember that moment so vividly.

    Maybe it's possible she just didn't have a Masterball, and ended up resetting in anger afterwards not knowing it would have retained its shininess? The Safari Zone scenario is exactly how the three of us remember it happening, though, so I honestly have no clue :/.

    Well you said it was from before Gen IV's english release, so it is definitely a long time ago, good chance that you remembered something wrong, or there something's missing.

    The resetting scenario is possible, though. Probably you just didn't remember that part. But I have no clue either regarding it appearing in Safari Zone.

    It was only, like, 7 years ago. 15 doesn't seem like that forgetful of an age o-o;

    The basic idea behind the story stands, though. Totes saw a Shiny Latias, a Masterball was not available for use, and we didn't see another shiny Latias. Those are the only three details I recall for sure... Heck, for all I know, maybe we just never even ran into Latias again on that cartridge and just assumed that we missed our shot.

    The only shiny I once had but no longer have would be my first shiny, and not in a main-series game...Nidoqueen on Pokemon Rumble was my first shiny. I remember its power being in the 400 or 500s so I found it pretty early on in the game. Having never found a shiny in my Diamond playthrough (and stopped watching the anime and collecting the TCG many many years ago), I never knew what a shiny pokemon was. I figured it was just some alternate coloration (partly correct) that Nidoqueen could be here and there - maybe uncommon but not anything rare...And so, while cleaning out my pokemon after getting to the higher tiers (where 400/500 power pokemon are useless where only pokemon with 1k+ power exist), I decided that I'd get rid of it after holding onto it for a while, thinking I could just reobtain one if I wanted to. That's how I ended up learning about shiny pokemon, since when looking in the game's pokedex, Nidoqueen has a star next to it and was the only one to do so, which I had to look up why...



    I didn't really do much hunting until close to the evening. After about 50 encounters, I ended up training Machoke from level 30 to 40, and since I was having trouble beating some Gyarados with him, I decided to give him Thunder Punch since the move tutor was right next to where I was battling...Since I didn't have all the shards, that meant spending a lot of time in the Underground...But it was nice to change things up. And now he's closer in level to Empoleon and Staraptor.

    Anyways, I did a lot of hunting tonight and ended up with 700 REs and 210 SRs...Unsuccessful, of course, but at least I stuck with it! 700 is actually the most I've done on Platinum in 1 day so far. I also did 50 REs on White as I did the last 50 on Platinum. So overall, 5,400 REs and 1,410 SRs so far.

    After that I watched NCIS and then decided I'd try playing Rumble since Rayze Darr had me thinking about it today. After about 6 or so rounds, I found a shiny Gyarados. And then the very next round, I found a shiny Floatzel. From what I remember reading a while ago, the odds are the same in Rumble (except you encounter ~100-150 pokemon every 3-6 minutes), so it's still surprising to have found 1 right after the other. Not real shinies, but still fun in their own right

    Hoping to get a lot of hunting done tomorrow (if I don't get called in to work)...Good luck everyone!

    I got 200 REs done and 80 SRs done, so 4,500 REs total and 1,130 SRs total...I'm doubtful I'll finish even the Chimchar hunt, much less get to Turtwig, though I really hope I do Even just getting Chimchar would be neat. Oh well. I'm still training Machop while I hunt for Shinx, and so far, he's level 25. Not sure if I want to let him evolve into Machoke at level 28, or leave him as Machop until I'm ready to trade the starters over...Not really fond of Machoke and prefer Machop, though on the other hand, I'd at least have a different pokemon for a few days even if I'm not using him...

    Well, good luck everyone...Still not a very shiny-filled day!
    Ahaha thanks a bunch CpChris! Yeah, I'm definitely partaking in that X/Y badge quest once Pokearth updates the encounter rates and all of that exciting business, but before anything else I'll definitely be going for a shiny Kalos starter, most likely Fennekin with which to begin my journey! Interestingly, speaking of the Kalos starters, the starter select screen has the models showing up in 3D, which not only looks really pleasing to the eye, but may potentially open up a HG/SS style of SRing where you see the shiny onj screen before checking the summary? I can only dream, can't I! That being said, my goal to get every shiny starter will be cut in half when X/Y finally come out, and I don't find that a particularly bad thing! Wishing you the best of luck on Chimchar as well, and that it doesn't reach almost 14,000 SRs like my shiny Chimchar did!

    Congrats to everyone that has found a shiny so far this month. Charmander didn't shine for me and I got too impatient to keep SRing firered. I need to up my pace on my pokedex quest so I'm holding off for a MM when I make it to gen 4 or 5 in my pokedex quest.
    Ahahaha thanks a lot kyle! Yeah I was immensely glad (and shocked! to see Turtwig take only 3600ish SRs to shine unlike Chimchar, it may finally mark a return to me having normal lengthed hunts for a change, which is always fantastic! Just a little word of note for when you get into SRing for shiny Turtwig though: The SRs are gonna feel immensely slow and lethargic to begin with, that's not wrong at all, it's a natural feeling as they are admittedly much longer than normal SRs would be. However, once you build a momentum going, keep yourself distracted with videos and stuff and just press on with the hunt, you'll find that the Sinnoh starter SRs are actually pretty relaxing and a really effective time waster! Or maybe I'm just saying that because I have 2/3 of them and am currently aiming for my 3rd!

    Hoo boy, there's a LOT of these back from my nooby days when I had no idea what shiny Pokemon even were. Time for a list:

    Seviper (Sapphire); This was the FIRST Seviper I ever saw. I was on an old rusty GBA back in around 2003 at a friends house and so didn't see the sparkles nor any indication that the Seviper was meant to be different. I ran away, but after I noticed every subsequent Seviper had a red tail and sellow as opposed to green scaly markings, I put 2 and 2 together later in life to deduce the first Seviper I found was a shiny. What a bummer!

    Clamperl (Ruby): I found a Relicanth underwater, and knowing it to be a rare and immensely difficult to catch shiny, went above sea to obtain a bunch of Dive Balls to attempt to catch the coelcanth. Unusually enough, me and my friend found a shiny Clamperl underwater before any Relicanth, and although he demanded me to catch it knowing the rarity of shinies, I refused, wanting to save the Dive Ball for Relicanth. I did catch it, but then didn't save afterwards, rendering the shiny Clamperl gone *.*

    Hoppip (LeafGreen): I was browsing around 5 Isle Meadow (I THINK it was there, not entirely familiar with the Sevii Islands outside 1 Island) and the first thing I found was a Green Hoppip. Knowing this to be an immensely rare Pokemon, I actually caught it, saved it and evolved it to Skiploom, using it on Colosseum as well! Unfortunately my friend deleted the file with Hoppip on, and I never got to see its face again. ;(

    There's also Sandshrew (Sapphire), Pidgey (Gold), Geodude (Emerald) and Spinarak (HeartGold), but I've already reclaimed them so I didn't think I needed to mention them. Bottom line is, if you lose a shiny, you thrust yourself in there and reclaim it for your own, no regrets. :P

    I've not done much hunting recently as I've been focussing on A levels as expected. However, I have found time to SR for a shiny Piplup in my spare time where revision isn't a topmost priority, and I've currently done around 400 SRs, and am aiming for around 2000 by the end of the week. I'm expecting Pippy to go slightly over the odds but not immensely, in time we'll see exactly what happens! Huge congrats on all of the wonderful shinies everybody has obtained recently and best of luck on all hunts long and short!

    1/8192 shinies thus far: Around 130+

    Wow congratulations to all shinies since my last post!

    I have an update.. I have not gotten a shiny since my meditate but I have on both black 2 and white versions collected 8 boxes of Bulbasaur and Squirtle. I will be doing my thing where I get three brand new eggs from the daycare man and then two from the boxes so that means after going through 8 boxes the amount of eggs hatched will be 600 per game. I am hoping this way that I will get at least one shiny out of all those. Also I have been trying to play through white 2 which I only started a few days ago so I have taken a long time collecting the eggs on the other two games. Hopefully I can complete the community hunt within a week and then I can concentrate on white 2 for a little while as well as possibly SRing for shiny Cresselia.

    Well congratulations again to all shinies since my last post and good luck to everyone still hunting!
    Shinies are good.

    Pupitar (Japanese black): My first random encounter was a purple Pupitar. It was on my japanese Pokemon Black, so at that time I already knew what shines were and how rare they are. Luckily I had no problem catching it. I lost the my game for a while but I found it and traded it to my main game. I'm really proud that my first random encounter was a shiny Pupitar, not a Zubat.

    Sawk (English black): Stupid me traded it for a jirachii. ;___;

    Bagon (Platinum): I was looking for a Bagon in a normal patch so that I could chain it, but one of the first normal patches was a shiny Bagon (so it is a 1/8192 shiny). Caught it in an Ultraball.

    Woobat (My main black game): Found it on dooms day in the Wellspring cave. Caught it in a repeatball. What a great day.

    Tropius (My main black again): Found it while catching Pokes for my Pokedex. Caught it in a quickball.

    Magikarp (SS): Found it on the way to the red G. Caught it in a quickball.:d

    BTW guys, I still haven't nicknamed my Mudkip. Help please? ;___;

    Hello, it's been awhile since my last post. Just want to start by congratulating everyone on their successes!

    So this past Sunday out of nowhere I got that shiny hunting itch again and picked up where I had left off 2-3 months ago and resumed MMing Beldum. After 250 eggs since restarting the count (I've been hunting for Beldum on and off since July 2011 and the previous counts were part of other hunts) Beldum finally shone for me! Super pleased with this given it was my first ever target when I began seriously hunting. I got it on my Black 2 and thus was charm boosted, however, I forgot to replace Metang with a Beldum that had a better nature and thus it ended up being gentle natured.

    As for my next hunt, I haven't decided as of yet. I'm thinking of resuming my Kabuto SR hunt or I might MM Bulbasaur or Squirtle, completing the Kanto starters would be a pretty nice goal.

    @2rsa: Well I'm not the best at coming up with names, did you have anything in mind?

    Good luck to everyone currently hunting.

    GUYS I have such great news after 6 days of soft resetting for a starter shiny in Soul Silver I finally decided to start over by changing my TID less than 30 min later my shiny Cyndaquil appeared xDDD Even though this doesn't count for the community hunt I'm ecstatic. This is my first successful soft reset attempt and my second 1/8128 shiny xDDD I named him Kazan He is Quirky Nature by the way (neutral) which is good, it could have been worse

It's strange because the Ruby pack I caught most of the ones I lost also had a few that I have migrated to white, so I don't know what happened there. I'm usually pretty careful about making sure the shinies are off the pack before resetting : /

    I have since caught a new shiny wurmple, but not sure if it will be a reclaimed Dustox or a new Beautifly yet.

    Hi guys, not posted for a while but I couldn't believe my luck today!

    Just found a shiny yamask for the 4th part in my White 2 BQ (after Snivy, Azurill and Elekid)! Yet about 30 mins later, finally found a shiny Lapras for the 5th part in Heart Gold BQ!! Been searching for over a year for lapras on and off, so I'm glad to be able to move forward on that one now. Plus it means community hunt complete for this month. My first one!

    Never found 2 shinies in one day before!

    Congrats to ~EternalDarkess~ on Beldum, NightHaze12 on Cyndaquil, and Mr. Shinx on Yamask and Lapras!

    YAY!

    Ok, so it's not a shiny male Shinx, or a Shinx at all, but it's Shiny Bidoof! After my 259th encounter so far today, it appeared...5,659 encounters since Machop...'ve been tricked a number of times by Bidoof being unsure of whether or not it's shiny, but I knew when I saw it going across the screen that this was the real deal.

    I'd have preferred to have gotten Shinx first, since now I'll be at Route 203 with 2 Shinies that I already have from there, whereas if I'd gotten Shinx, I could go to someplace like Lake Verity where Bidoof is 50%, or a different place where there's Bibarel and Roserade...But at least I got another shiny I wanted! I'm about to go load her up with HMs now and PC the non-shiny Bidoof I've been using...

    So this one is Female, which I don't mind; kind of like the idea of female Bidoof/Bibarel (and if the universe takes bargains, I'd much rather have a shiny female anything else and get a shiny male shinx in the end)...Docile nature, just like Empoleon, and Likes to thrash about. Stats at Lv 5 are HP//22, Atk//11, Def//9, Sp. A//9, Sp. Def.//10, Speed//9.

    I was sort of feeling like I might get a shiny yesterday or today, with all the hunting I've done and planned to do...I'm also excited because this means I can go beat the next gym leader and stuff and finally give Staraptor Fly! And after all the gym and Team Galactic stuff, it'll be back to Route 203 to see if I can really test my luck and not get a duplicate shiny and perhaps the exact one I want

    Guess this isn't going over the odds this time, which I wouldn't have necessarily minded since I'm due for at least one hunt to actually make it that far...6,029 total encounters on this game and 3 REd shinies out of it!

    I'll shut up now and get back to my game :x Good luck everyone!

    Gratz to pokemaster13 on Mesprit, cocoadragon on Remoraid, JohnNiles on Rotom, Papousse on Shinx, maldoror on Drifblim, KittyKitty308 on Eevee, dan2point5 on Uxie, TheMaster327 on Stantler, Frost Mage on Ponyta, EternalDarkness on Beldum, NightHaze12 on Cyndaquil, Mr. Shinx on Yamask and Lapras, and Cpchris on Bidoof!

    Still no shiny here, I'm at day 5 for Qwilfish and hatched 1500 eggs for Lotad. I knew I'd get some long hunts to make up for the insane luck I had at the beginning of the month. It hasn't been that long since my last shiny but I have a feeling my two current hunts will take awhile. I've got 2 more boxes to fill up before I start hatching again, hopefully a shiny Lotad is in there!

    Good luck everyone.

    Massive congrats to TheMaster327 on those 3 Stantler, Frost Mage on shiny Ponyta, EternalDarkness on Beldum, NightHaze12 on Cyndaquil, Mr. Shinx on both Laprad and Yamask (2 in 1 day is great luck!) and Cpchris on getting shiny Bidoof for his 4th BQ shiny! Great work guys!

    I've already started my hunt for Mesprit and today I've gotten to 530 SR's so far. Will continue hunting later. Hopefully I'll get some pics up soon if my last few hunts. My laptop is broke so havent been able to upload (unless anyone knows a way of posting pics direct from an iPhone?).

    Good luck everyone.

    Wahooo!! This is the perfect way to celebrate the end of my finals!! I finished my finals yesterday and collected eggs afterward and today I was hatching them.

    http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y10...ps6e146be0.png

    I used an everstone and a power item for the nature and attack iv but the other ivs turned out pretty good as well; 9/31/25/9/30/27. 31 ivs in attack and 27 for speed . This egg was from the 7th box so around 210-ish eggs cause some hatched in the process of filling up boxes. I gotta say I love using the MM because I can take breaks and do the join avenue stuff, unlike when using RE. Not sure what my next target will be yet, but I'll use the MM method again next time.
