    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.
    I just email the photos from my IPod to my own email, which works. When I do that, I just save it on my Laptop, upload it to iaza and copy the URL and paste it in image tags...it works for me, but you'd need your laptop...

    I haven't hunted much recently. I did hit 400 REs in Platinum, and cpchris is really making me want to hunt on it much more...I'm kind of distracted by a SoulSilver playthrough. 925 REs in HG too...

    Congrats and good luck to all!

    HOLY HELL! This is ridiculous! After 614 SR's Shiny Mesprit just appeared! This is mental! Caught it after a fun 5 minute game of 'why the hell won't you stay in the pokeball' haha.

    On to lake trio number 3 now!

    Congrats birds of paradise on shiny Drilbur.

    Stupid/paranoid question: on B/W2, is Cresselia's shininess set when I hold up the Lunar Wing, or when I actually enter in battle with it?

    I lost count, but after a ridiculous amount of eggs, I finally have a shiny Larvesta! It's so darn cute! I'm trying for a Rufflet next. I believe I'm already past the one hundred eggs mark? Oh well. I don't really count these things, I just keep trying!

    Good luck to everyone trying to get their shinies. It takes a lot of patience, doesn't it? x)

    Congrats to Birds of Paradise on Drilbur, dan2point5 on Mesprit, Omishka on Tentacool, and HalfaBean on Larvesta!

    Thanks City Of Delusion, dan2point5, and PaddysTurtwigFanClub!

    I put the video of Bidoof up. (as well as the videos of shiny Gyarados and shiny Floatzel from Rumble last night)...I got her EVs all recorded (I gave her 300 Vitamins to speed things along :x), and her IVs don't look too bad...Of course, on a Bibarel ;_; Not that they're fantastic, but: 22 HP, 31 Atk., 6 Def., 20 Sp. Atk., 22 Sp. Def., 22 Speed.

    I did 300 more REs today...So 559 total today...It's funny to think that this time and the last time that I set myself a semi-major hunting goal (last time was to dual hunt 7 consecutive days, this time was to reach 1k REs today), they get interrupted by shinies :x I also did 190 SRs, so currently back down to 300 REs total, and 1,600 SRs...I only have 4 or 5 more days with this second cartridge, so I'm losing hope that Chimchar will appear...Though I'm holding out for one of those semi-quick mid-1k SRs for Chimchar followed by one of those miraculous <200 SRs that I've seen on youtube for Turtwig...Doubtful, but it could happen :x If it doesn't, then I probably won't be hunting them again unless I decide to MM, which right now seems even more doubtful than the scenario I just presented...

    I also trained Machoke up to level 50 after beating the 4th gym, so he's all caught up to Empoleon and Staraptor. I think I might try to train Bibarel up at least a little so she's not as behind and so I can make some money rematching those socialite people with my amulet coin :x And then it'll be back to hunting Shinx!

    Good luck finding shinies, everyone!

Pyro's not a bad name, but if you want to change, here's a list of suggestions... What about Captain, Synaps (I studied in science yesterday, eheh), Ethan, Burstion (from burst) or Galen (I looked on internet for "calm name", since it's your Torchic's nature, and there's some interesting options, here!) ?
    And as for your last Badge Quest Pokémon, you really need a Water type, so I suggest you to go hunt where there's only Water types (plus, if you find it in May, a community hunt complete!), it would be very useful, don't you think ?
    Well, I don't think that MM is actually what people envisioned when they talk about a Badge Quest, but oh well! Fact is I hatched a shiny on a Badge Quest game. Maybe it can just be a bonus shiny or something? I don't think it really matters in the grand scheme of things because I'm sure I'll use the game to hunt on it in the future for something else anyway. So I'll probably be getting yet another shiny soon and that may contribute to the shiny total better than a hatched one ... I do know that while the Torchic wasn't an overly long hunt, there were still a number of hours put into it, so yeah. I guess what I'm saying is that it doesn't make it any less easy or less special.

    Thanks for your name suggestions, I like Galen! I was actually thinking Roaster, too ... a combo of Rooster and Roast. But it might be a bit too "been there, done that!"

    And I've taken your suggestion for a water type into consideration. Lapras, maybe. There are a number of beautiful water types to capture, but I guess I need to do some more research. I want to hunt for an Oddish or Hoothoot, too, but I really get turned off by the night time only appearance and I don't really want to mess with my DS time settings. Unless I hunt for one of them at night and switch to a fishing spot during the day. Arrgh, too many choices!

    ....except that the Shiny Torchic's Nature is Calm, which is -Attack

    Still, congrats for finally obtaining a shiny one
    Hmm, it could still have appeared in a normal patch and not a shiny one. Regardless, it is still awfully lucky, and congrats once again!

    Hey now ... no need for those remarks! :P Torchic holds back on his immense strength due to being calm, that's all. He's still pretty awesome!

    Hey now, though. At least it makes it interesting. At least for me, anyway! I'd much prefer reading descriptive posts than anything else!

    Off the top of my head, I've come up with a few ... it really depends on what sort of a nickname you're looking for.

    Kipper
    Sludge
    Slops
    Sloppy
    Fisher
    Swampy
    Marshall
    Swampal
    Boggs
    Muddy
    Sudsy
    Peater
    Gill
    Gilly
    Fludds
    Hydro
    Belarus
    Bracken
    River

    So, yeah ... My White 2 Badge Quest is totally giving me the #$%$^$^%&@#$@$ at the moment! I know we've all had our long hunts and all, so I don't want to sound like "poor me!!!" but I just hit 18,907 encounters for my third shiny. I feel like throwing something!!! Thank goodness for the forms section of the Pokedex, because I keep on feeling like I've missed a shiny and it helps to ease my mind. Come on, game!!! I'm sick of this cave.

    Anyway! Since Torchic/Roaster/Galen/Pyro hatched, I have been dual hunting, using both my 3DS and DSi to hunt. I have barely had any encounters in White, but sure enough, something appeared this morning and sparkled. Now, I was stunned, but I am also a little annoyed that of course the shiny has to appear on the other game, and it's also a double of something I already have! I guess it's hard to explain my tone through text, but I am definitely happy, of course, but it's not the ideal situation I'd prefer!

    Where I am hunting I have a few of the Pokémon in shiny form already. That's fine, I know the risks. But there are some awesome alternatives there, too! And last time I hunted here, I also got another Pokémon that was another double, but it appeared within minutes. You may recall my Rapidash from a little while ago?

    Well, here she is. I'm really glad it's a female because she compliments my male, Regale!



    Still hunting in the same place, and still hunting in that cave, too. There seems to be a scientist trapped in the cave there next to me, too. She's probably catching the shiny Pokémon for herself ...

    Good luck all!

    First of all, congratulations to everyone on your shinies 8D
    It really takes a lot of patience to find a shiny. Or maybe some of you are just very lucky. Whichever the case, congratulations.

    Ok, so here's my story: I may or may not have posted on this thread 2 years ago, I don't remember. Anyways, a long time ago I was using the Masuda Method to get a shiny Litwick, I hatched over 3000 eggs and no shiny appeared. I switched to doing REs, I got over 8000 (maybe over 9000) and still no shiny.
    I got tired of shiny hunting.

    A few days ago I decided to try to hunt again. This time not for Litwick, but for a random Pokémon in dark grass. As I now have 3 game consoles I can triple hunt.
    Everyday I did about 2 hours of triple hunting (about 1200 REs every day). And today this appeared in my japanese White 2.

    I feel so happy right now :'D
    After so much time without finding anything, this was really unexpected.
    Not only it's my first successful shiny hunting ever, but also my first 1/8192 shiny since a Graveler I caught in 2008. That Minccino is also my first Unova shiny, not counting that shiny Haxorus.

    I uploaded a video right here. Sadly it is not live, the quality is bad and there's no sound.

    Anyways, she needs a name. 5 characters limit. Any idea? :3

    Good luck to everyone hunting shinies! 8D

    Congrats to Omishka on Tentacool, HalfaBean on Larvesta, Zane on Tranquil (glad it was female so you've got the set!) and to CBC on Minccino. Well played guys :-)

    Last night I started the hunt for Azelf and did 100SR's before calling it a day. I have a funny feeling this one will take a while but how great would it be if I could complete the lake trio with 3 consecutive shiny days! I'm at work at the moment so will hunt later when I finish.

    Good luck today everyone.

    Community hunt complete x5!

    After 1,771 eggs shiny Lotad is mine!



    I'm glad this hunt didn't go over 2k eggs! Well, unfortunately it ended up with Rain Dish as its ability (wanted Swift Swim) but its still a nice ability, I just have to give it a slightly different moveset now. So I'm not gonna be OCD with the ability like I was with Zangoose and Shroomish and go for another one xD. Next up is Seedot, I've been wanting a shiny Shiftry for awhile now and this months CH is giving me that push to go for one. I'll have to be strict with the ability this time, so hopefully it gets Chlorophyll cause Early Bird is just horrible on Shiftry. But for now, I have a few more eggs to hatch and ALOT of releasing to do >.<!

    Good luck everyone!

    Darn, sorry Cpchris, I forgot you for a while so I didn't aswered to your post on Bidoof. Congratulations !
    Mh, now it looks hard because you already got 2 Pokémon on this route, but I noticed in the video that you weren't using a Pokémon with Static in front of your team to get Shinx more easily... Maybe you should try it, after all, I guess you have access to Pikachu from the Trophy Garden by now. I still wish you good luck, I don't like Bidoof especially, but it's fine and she's cute in a certain way!

    Yeah, another one ! That's awesome ! Roaster is cool as well, but it reminds me a 'bit of the word "toaster", wich I don't like especially... But you decide, once again, you have incredibly good nickname suggestions. For the Water type, if you don't agree with it, it's fine, I think Nidoqueen can still get some Water type moves (Surf, Water Pulse and Whirlpool in Heart Gold) so if you wanna put one, it would be fine, and I still think you should hunt for Hoothoot in the National Park, with 100% of encouter rates, makes it unevitable. For always touching the hour clock, I understand, but the night starts at 20h and finishes at 3h59. I doubt you will be hunting for around 6 hours in a row. I think you should visualize everything. A golden Noctowl would make your team very interesting.
    For Tranquill, well, congratulations ! The female has less details than the male but it still work, and I guess it will be fine in your Badge Quest (I think you'll have to wait to get her, she won't obey to you anyway).

    Mmmh, let me think... What about Shimy, Glace, Cleo, Rosa, Alice, Jadia or Twink ?

    As for you, dan2point5, congratulations on the last two, and good luck on Azelf !

    Your luck is insane, but still, big congratulations ! How many it makes this month ?
    Lotad isn't very a Pokémon that I like, but its shiny form is pretty. having Seedot, its counterpart, will be pretty neat as well.
    Good luck on Seedot and Qwilfish!

    Thanks Dan! I'm actually pretty stoked that she's female as they look quite a lot different.
    Cheers CoD! (When I say it like that I'm reminded of a big fish ...) Congratulations on that Lotad! It looks amazing. Seedot is my favourite of the two and I spent a loooong time hunting for one in Ruby long ago unsuccessfully. So good luck! And you don't mind if I get inspired by you, do you?

    Thanks, Papousse! Hey, just don't think of the word Toaster ... Hmm, that's another potential nickname! Eggs and toast? Toaster? Roaster? I might name him Toaster!

    But you decide, once again, you have incredibly good nickname suggestions.
    I appreciated your suggestions. I think that Galen sounded awesome, because it not only has the calm connection, but it also sounds kind of heroic and gallant or something. I'd like to think my Torchic isn't a complete moron.

    I guess that I usually try to nickname any Pokémon (and I actually do this!) that I capture, and sometimes I get a little stumped, so I choose names that down the track I'm not too keen about and would like to put some more thought into them. That's why the whole Webby thing occurred. I think that also hearing other peoples suggestions can help inspire you to find something else you like, so keep the suggestions coming!

    For the Water type, if you don't agree with it, it's fine, I think Nidoqueen can still get some Water type moves (Surf, Water Pulse and Whirlpool in Heart Gold) so if you wanna put one, it would be fine, and I still think you should hunt for Hoothoot in the National Park, with 100% of encouter rates, makes it unevitable.

A golden Noctowl would make your team very interesting.
    I'm not really one for types, to be honest. I think that my shinies are pretty much going to steam through anything in the game at this point, after being EV trained on SS, etc. I'm relying on my Arbok, Summer to defeat the Elite Four singlehandedly at this point. Her moveset is Crunch, Ice Fang, Seed Bomb, and Poison Jab. And she's almost level 70.

    But I really am considering Lapras. If you go there and never leave, the Lapras wont disappear until you leave, right? I seem to recall people saying something like this, but I never really thought much about it as Lapras wasn't always a pressing target of mine.

    Hoothoot/Noctowl is definitely one of my targets, so I will probably end up hunting there at some point. It will probably be soon, actually. Not too sure. Depends on whether other shiny Pokémon co-operate with me! I probably might hunt for 6 hours in a row at this stage! :P But I'm mainly talking about when I might get a spare moment during the day and there's no Hoothoot or Oddish around. Sometimes you might not get ample time at night to hunt before heading to sleep.

    For Tranquill, well, congratulations ! The female has less details than the male but it still work, and I guess it will be fine in your Badge Quest (I think you'll have to wait to get her, she won't obey to you anyway).
    Oh, you mean for me to trade her over to White 2 to use? I'm not actually sure what I'm going to do with her! It's such a shame their movepool is pretty shallow.

    Guys, this might seem like a weird question, but Do any of you have any superstitions when it comes to shiny hunting? For example, does anyone follow a set routine? Do you reset the game after a certain amount of encounters, or do you just leave your game in sleep mode the entire time? Or do you hunt for a certain amount of time before saving the game and resetting? I don't know if any of this makes sense, but I wanted to see what all of you do. Is there a rhyme or reason to what you do, or do you just mindlessly KO random Pokémon until the sparkly one appears? Or do you just run from everything you see? Or do you vary it?

    I'm really interested in seeing what you all had to say about this!

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

    I have an update on my MM hunts. Right on Black 2 I have hatched 50 bulbasaur eggs so far but no shiny yet. On white version I have hatched 100 eggs for Squirtle and no shiny so far. I am going to hopefully hatch another box on each game before tomorrow so fingers crossed a shiny appears! I really want to complete my shiny kanto trio now. It has been 5 months since I got my wonderful shiny Charmander and she needs her fellow kanto shinies.

    Congratulations again to all shinies gained and good luck to everyone still hunting.
    Shinies are good.

    Wow, so many long posts! I'm a little swamped with life right now, so make sure you write "Community Hunt Complete" when you get it, or I might miss you. If I do miss you, VM me so I can fix it =)

    Still nothing new for me, which isn't surprising as I'm only getting maybe an hour a day to work on my hunts right now. >.< Good luck to everyone in their hunts!

    Hey everyone!

    Been a very, very long time since I've been to the forums, or have had the urge to do some shiny hunting.. But guess I'm all back! ^^ Picked up my game again today and figured, why not try? So yeah, here I am..

    Not completely sure what to hunt for next though, I had some hunts going, which I might just continue, or I could start some brand new ones n_n
    I think I may return to my hunt for a shiny Audino, by training up my other shinies to 100 using Audino-encounters.. Have no idea what number that hunt was on though, but I remember it being at least a couple thousand.

    I'll update my shiny-list at some point, when I get the time =3

    Welcome back to hunting Nakashima! Good luck on Audino...should you hunt it.

    As for me, 725 REs in Platinum with little progress in HG. However, I bought a second calculator (exactly the same as the other one) so dual hunting is back for me

    Other than that, good luck and congratulations!

    I had a Spinda (RE) and Latias (SR, Southern Island) on my original Ruby file. I erased them when I restarted. I've since caught a new Latias but don't care for Spinda so have never bothered getting a new one (it sat in a box anyway from the moment I caught it).

    I found a Girafarig in my Silver. I only had a couple of Ultra Balls on me so I decided to risk attacking it with my Donphan. If Fury Attack hit 2/3 times (can't remember which) then it would have lived. Needless to say, it hit more and my shiny died. To add insult to injury, I chucked an Ultra Ball at the new Girafarig I saw and got it at full HP with no status condition. I have a chained one from Diamond now.

    Anyway, I've had a break from Pokémon but have decided to come back and get the last shiny I was going for. I have done some hatching today and am now up to 1585 eggs for shiny Yanma. I hope it shines soon!

    Congrats on the new shinies and good luck on the hunts.

    Default How do so many people have shiny pokemon?

    I tried to post this in the Newbie thread but apparently that is incorrect...So I am reposting this here. There are so many different topics it is difficult to figure out where I am supposed to be posting stuff.
    Okay so I have been playing pokemon for years and I have seen ONE shiny. A shiny Slugma that I caught while playing pokemon Sapphire, it seems to show up each time I restarted the game....I don't even have it anymore because I just restarted me game (for some stupid reason) and I figured I could just go back and get it... Anyways I was wondering how SO many people have Shiny pokemon??? I understand the breeding method as well as the shiny charm that you can get in Black/White 2 (which I am currently working on) but how long does it take you guys to get sooo many? And what is with the "soft reset" trick? How does that work?
