    Congratulations to everyone on their new and wonderful shiny pokemon!

    I have put my MM hunt for Snivy on pause and restarted my HG game so I can get a shiny johto starter. Hopefully I will get one under 5000 SRs. I was just wondering, will it work if I save in front of the machine where you get the pokemon or is it pre-determined whether you'll get a shiny or not when you enter the lab?

    Best of luck to everyone on their hunts! ^_^

    Congrats to Heliotrope on the Whismur (shiny Exploud is really beautiful. It's got that shining almost golden quality with it's yellow "pipes". I'm quite envious!), 201238 for the new chained shiny, dan2point5 for the Lake Trio, City of Delusion for the shiny Seedot (another one I'm jelly of!), darkdrapion for the rumble shinies. TheMaster327 for Latios, Gustavo for that Croagunk AND Pidove (Male too? Man, that's awesome!), and Wyverndust for shiny Pidove. As for name suggestions, I'd probably call her something fanciful like Sunblood (because of their dark gold colour), Tara (a princess from an old SNES game), or Karnak (not sure why, it just seems to fit). But, I'm weird like that. Good luck naming her!

    Still plodding along with my REs for BQ shiny #2, only at 940. I'm aiming to go at least over 1000 before I go to bed tonight. When this succeeds, it will be my first ever successful RE hunt. It's also the first hunt where I haven't influenced the odds in my favour somehow. I've done MM hunts, and my only SR was on SoulSilver, which basically gives you 3 chances to succeed on one SR. Just doing a straight RE where there's nothing to speed things up is just so...weird. xD

    Good luck everyone!

    I was training my brand new Litwick in the Celestial when another Litwick appeared for the umpteenth time... but it was blue.
    My heart jumped and my blood became cold, and when I caught it... that feel.

    The funny part of that is... I've search a male Litwick with Flame body for almost an hour before and this shiny litwick has those qualities.

    Yeah, that was funny on Skype, I was actually there when you got it. Your reaction... Guys, you can't imagine, ahahah!
    Already told you, your first shiny (except from that red Gyarados in Soul Silver) is very cool to get, I can remember when I got that Geodude.. Ah, memories...
    Congratulations to you and to the other shinies I've miss!

    Just save in front of the machine, as for me I'm at 7,302 encounters between my three games. Really want something soon... I don't have any shinies from the places I'm hunting so anything would be awesome

    Hopefully something pops out there. I still need to name my Tranquill. Some of the names are dorky! but hey ... it takes all sorts! You might just want a dorky sounding name, or find it endearing or cute. Oh, and some of the names might sound a little "out there" or have no relevance, but they actually have relevance to pheasants or similar things like that. Mikado is a species of pheasant, for example.

    I know how you feel, Cyndajay ... about the duplicate shiny Pokémon, I mean. It has happened to me before with Golett, Mincinno, Tranquill and others. This morning, about an hour ago, I got my 3rd White 2 Badge Quest shiny ... about time!!! I know that others have had much longer hunts than me, but it was getting pretty frustrating. It just felt like I was stuck there forever on that one particular game and I couldn't do anything about it or go anywhere else until something shone.

    So, imagine my mixture of relief and annoyance when the shiny did appear today, considering I already had the same shiny on my White version. Yes, I knew the risks hunting there, but the funny thing is that there are more Pokémon in the Relic Passage that I don't have shiny than I do have shiny, so I was really hoping that the odds would be in my favour. They weren't, though!

    My main targets were Timburr and Roggenrola. Then Onix (which, of course, isn't very feasible, but it's still possible) and then Drilbur (again, not too likely). After ... ugh ... 23,493 REs, I got a shiny:

    http://img51.imageshack.us/img51/3109/1000979g.jpg

    I nicknamed her Flitter due to the fact that she flits around, and it sounds like Glitter, which you could say a shiny produces whenever it appears from a Pokeball. Glitter and sparkles and all that.

    So, yeah, relieved, happy, and a little annoyed all mixed together. I probably sound really ungrateful, but I just had this vision of getting another shiny bat ... and it came true!

    Klutz ... now, does that mean it can't even hold a Macho Brace or anything? What is the benefit of Klutz? Seems like a pretty awful ability to me.

    Anyway, good luck to everyone and thanks for reading!

    Congrats TheMaster327 on latios, Sealotic on litwick and ZaneClarthy on woobat pity it was a duplicate but at least your BQ can continue now.

    Well after my slight disappointment earlier, while EV training some of the shinies I recently obtained on my Black 2 my shiny charm kicked in with another shiny and shortest hunt so far with the shiny charm.

    Shiny rattata appeared after 181 encounters not something that i wanted but a nice surprise anyway.

    Good luck to everyone on your hunts.

    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 I was thinking about the Static thing a day or two ago...But I decided I want to use just my shiny pokemon as much as I can during the BQ, including doing encounters (which also has the drawback of making encounters take longer :x). I didn't forget your suggestion though, so thanks for it

    I usually leave my game on the whole day. As for superstitions, sometimes I'll save fairly often, sometimes I won't save for a while. I guess I just switch it up, so that I'm bound to be doing something the 'right' way. However, I think when I got Piplup and Starly, both of them happened after I got out of work, then showered, then hunted around 5pm-6pm...So I got a little superstitious about that.

    My first shiny was a Litwick while I was training there too! (My Umbreon, though, not a Litwick :x)


    ----

    I didn't hunt at all the day after finding Bidoof. Instead, I trained Bibarel up to level 51, which the rest of my team is at now too. Yesterday I still didn't do much hunting, only 150 REs and 45 SRs. Today I only did 50 REs and 15 SRs...Taking short breaks from hunting is probably good though So I'm now at 500 REs and 1,660 SRs. I might be seeing IM3 on Monday with some friends, and if so, I'll be giving the one friend the other copy of Platinum, which means no more SRing for Chimchar or Turtwig =\ Good and bad thing...

    I also came to the realization that I WILL have a shiny Luxray on my BQ team...Not simply by choice, but just how things will work out...I'd already planned that I wouldn't count multiple shinies towards my BQ (so finding another Starly or Bidoof won't count). And I have 4 spots left for my BQ, and there's only 4 pokemon left on Route 203 - Zubat, Kricketot, Abra, and Shinx. So that means that even if it isn't until my last BQ shiny (or even for another 10 shinies), I'm still going to end up with a shiny Luxray Although, watch this plan get ruined by having one of the few encounters I get traveling to new areas being a shiny...

    Hopefully I'll get more hunting done tomorrow after work :x Good luck with your hunts, everyone!

    Congrats to gustavo 14, TheMaster327, Sealotic and a million congrats to Zane Clarthy who was almost driven insane from that hunt on White 2. It sucks that your shiny was yet another one that you have. But at least now you can get out of that cave and move on with the Badge Quest and hopefully capture many more new shinies

    As for my own hunts...they aren't really getting anywhere:

    Soul Silver: Roughly 4620 REs on Route 45
    Heart Gold: Roughly 9240 REs in Ilex Forest for BQ shiny #2

    I doubt anything will shine anytime soon. Good luck to you all

    Hey guys just wanted to update on my hunts. I got up to 3,500 SR's for Squirtle yesterday, not as many as I hoped as I was busy. Although, my mum made me and my brother and sister go to the Career's expo, and we took the bus, so I SR'd Squirtle the way there and back. I also started something I've wanted to do for a while: SRing Piplup on my Diamond game. And yes, I will be turning this into a BQ, although I'll hunt for it on Sundays. This hunt means a lot to me actually as Diamond was my first game ever and Piplup my first pokemon. I've only done 40 SR's so far and I'll hopefully get a lot more done by the end of today. My aim is to finish at least one of my BQ's before the end of the year, although it may be difficult due to me being in the last year of high school with heaps of homework and study required as well as my social life. I'll be hunting every chance I get though. Congrats on all the recent finds, and good luck everyone!

    grats on recents

    some shiny news: i just found my fav pokemon in shiny form...and it has the worst trait...after bout 200 RTs and 5 minutes playing tiptoe around the boss(only tried this 1x) i found a Power 1973 SHINY Haunter!!!...with Flying Guard trait...UGH...but it is my 1st shiny from Eternal Tower...so eh..

    as for shinies ive lost i just have 2 1/2 shinies on that list:

    Fearow and Clefairy(Rumble)...found them both in the Demo version before i bought the game

    my 1/2 is Beedrill because its on my Silver and i cant trade it to DS...or GBA for that matter...

    as for my Hoppip MM im hatching 2nd box now(woulda been done with the 4 boxes but i was adamant about finding a shiny on Pokemon Rumble...still have to find shinies in Silent Forest and Rocky Cave...but ill try hatching more 1st


    EDIT:....Well Community Hunt Complete after 57 eggs(give or take random hatches) a shiny Hoppip(M) hatched it has Bold nature with a Sturdy Body...its Ability is sadly Leaf Guard...eh still a shiny...and 2 boxes of eggs left... :P


    EDIT2: nothing in last 2 boxes, Hoppip is now a lvl 60 Jumpluff(needed at least lvl 59), and i learned it has the egg move Seed Bomb...didnt know my foreign Breloom knew that XD...decided not to keep going for DW shiny Hoppip, because i can try for DW Zubat/Pidgey later as soon as i find a foreign Flying egg group Pokemon...

    collecting Oddish eggs now.

    as for SRing Gen6 Starters i dont think i would(if i owned a 3DS...), but that Awakened Mewtwo looks sick...hopefully there will be a sweet looking Mew aswell...:P

    WOW, this month is just buzzing to the absolute brim with shinies! Huge congrats to City of Delusion, JAWAYami, Nakashima (Great to see you back Naka!), the ash man83, Mr E Nigma, dan2point5 x3, AquaRegisteel, Heliotrope, 201238, Scrufox86, gustavo14 x2, Wyverndust, Zane Clarthy, TheMaster327, Cyndajay, Sealotic and many more over the past few days! Keep 'em coming, the influx may be so huge that we'll have to create a May Madness as well as a March Madness! (which I only recently found out is an American sports term. The joys of being a Brit!)

    On an updating front, I haven't really done too much other than chip away at Piplup, who's currently at around 2460+ SRs on Platinum. Oddly, I've found quite a large amount of females over the course of this hunt (either that or I've just noticed it more, I dunno really), which gives me quite some hope that when Piplup shines, it might just be my first female shiny starter! Probably won't happen, but I can dream, right? So long as it doesn't go too far over the odds I honestly won't mind at all! On another unrelated note, who's gonna be SRing for a shiny Kalos starter when X/Y are released? As in my case the first thing I'll be doing when I get the game and 3DS is SR for a shiny Fennekin while making sure I have no idea what the shiny colours are. That's right - I'm hopefully not going to spoil myself the shiny colours of the Kalos Pokemon this time around, so any shiny I get in 6th gen will be totally new to me. (and I imagine absolutely gorgeous!) That being said, I still have a large amount of hunts to attend to pre- X/Y, Piplup and Tepig proving by far the most significant to ensure I can get every pre-Kalos starter shiny! Best of luck on all of your hunts everyone, looking forward to see ever more shinies over the next few days/weeks/months!

    1/8192 shinies thus far: Around 130+

    If by collect you mean from the day-care man, then yes. Just make sure to reject the first egg each time, because it will always be the same.

    So today I decided to play my old sapphire and delete it and try to obtain a shiny treecko. Im new at soft resetting for pokemon, in fact, this was my first time. I soft resetted a few times then there it was. after FIVE SOFT RESETS, I GOT A SHINY TREECKO. Im not sure what to do with it. its not untrained because i had to battle the poochena. Will people still take it if its touched? Or should i keep it and cherish it forever? Help! Oh, and is it rare for a person to get a shiny on the first few SRs? Ik the chances but still.

    Jesus man, lucky! Definitely keep it, there's nothing quite like a shiny that you caught yourself, especially that fast.

    I will be! I really want to SR for a shiny Chespin at this point in time, though I do like all of them! It's just that I've wanted a mammalian grass starter for so long, and Chespin is really cool/cute.

    I noticed in the recently released pics that the starters seem to be set up in the same way that they are in HGSS. Whether this means anything or not is up for debate, but take a look at this picture.



    It might not mean anything at all, but I refer to the blinking Froakie. In the other games, they've always been static images/sprites, apart from the "machine" set up used in HGSS. Does that mean that the starters standing there are the actual ones you will choose? That means that you might be able to see a shiny before you pick one again! I both equally like that and find it a little annoying. Because you might keep on getting shiny Froakie when you want a shiny Fennekin. And being a shiny hunter, how could you just abandon a shiny Froakie, even if it's your fifth one???

    But hey, who knows? You might, and probably will, still have to select each one and check its summary.

Will people still take it if its touched? Or should i keep it and cherish it forever? Help! Oh, and is it rare for a person to get a shiny on the first few SRs? Ik the chances but still.
    Congratulations on the Treecko. But, please, why trade it? I think that's sad! I think you should keep it, but ultimately it's up to you. If you don't really care for shiny Pokémon, then you do what you want with it. But you might get attached to it if you do use it and you might also regret trading it down the track.

    5 SRs is amazingly lucky, but everyone has stories, or has heard stories, about shiny Pokémon appearing all over the place, whether it be in 4 SRs or 40,000. I got a shiny Chikorita in SS in about 12 SRs. I didn't actually count because it's not like I was actually expecting one to shine so quickly, so it really shocked me.

    1775 eggs for Yanma now. I've switched it up a little for this batch and have saved with my three boxes full. I'm going to be making White 2 my main game and trading everything important to it so I needed some trade bait. Though looking at it now, I probably should do another box.

    I'm also going to be playing a bit of Fire Red. I SR'd for a shiny Abra in December 2011 and have never touched it, but as I plan to get rid of all my extra games (beyond White 2 and HG) I want to train it up a so I can admire the gen 3 sparkles for a while.

    Congrats on new shinies and good luck on the hunts!

    Edit: Woohoo! Egg 1824 was the luck one!

    Shiny Yanma hatched
    OT/ID. No/Lonely nature
    Compound eyes/stats/moves

    Immediately started training the little guy and in his first battle he beat a L4 Audino and jumped straight to L9. xD Bug Buzz and its Sp.Df drops were very useful even when the damned thing healed using an Oran Berry. I'm not in work until 6 so I'll spend a bit more time training him. Still not sure if I'll evolve him or keep him as a Yanma.

They weren't, though!

    My main targets were Timburr and Roggenrola. Then Onix (which, of course, isn't very feasible, but it's still possible) and then Drilbur (again, not too likely). After ... ugh ... 23,493 REs, I got a shiny:

    I nicknamed her Flitter due to the fact that she flits around, and it sounds like Glitter, which you could say a shiny produces whenever it appears from a Pokeball. Glitter and sparkles and all that.

    So, yeah, relieved, happy, and a little annoyed all mixed together. I probably sound really ungrateful, but I just had this vision of getting another shiny bat ... and it came true!

    Klutz ... now, does that mean it can't even hold a Macho Brace or anything? What is the benefit of Klutz? Seems like a pretty awful ability to me.

    Anyway, good luck to everyone and thanks for reading!
    Eh, not so fast ! You're getting shinies to quickly!
    If you ask me, you're lucky, I guess it makes different from a Fighting type that Emboar is and I couldn't see Roggenrola fitting in your team. Now you're covering more types at the same time and I find her cute. Too bad it has Kultz, but since I'm not EV training and things like that, it wouldn't bother me too much (now you can use Acrobatics's full power all the time, I guess...).
    Good luck on your next one ! I think you should finish Heat Gold before continuing White 2, but that's my opinion. Like that, you could only concentrate on White 2 later, wich would probably be easier to hunt than having two.

    It might not mean anything at all, but I refer to the blinking Froakie. In the other games, they've always been static images/sprites, apart from the "machine" set up used in HGSS. Does that mean that the starters standing there are the actual ones you will choose? That means that you might be able to see a shiny before you pick one again! I both equally like that and find it a little annoying. Because you might keep on getting shiny Froakie when you want a shiny Fennekin. And being a shiny hunter, how could you just abandon a shiny Froakie, even if it's your fifth one???

    But hey, who knows? You might, and probably will, still have to select each one and check its summary.
    Hm. From what I know, in Black and White 2 and all the games before we could see them standing and pick one up without being able to see them in their shiny form before. I would like it to happen (for you, I guess it's more fun to have 3 chances) but I don't see it happen. THe introduction of the starters here reminds me Black and White 2's one, and again, we couldn't see their shiny form until we check up their summary.

    Hey guys! Wow! Congrats to almost everyone for getting a shiny this month!

    I will probably be working on both black 2 and white 2 today for eevee using both methods. With only 2 more to go, I can see the light at the end of this looong journey! I might just decide to do some SRing hunts since I haven't done one of those since Rayquaza I believe. I still have to get Virizion and Terrekion.... so I think I might work on Virizion once I get my last Eevee. I love those pink shinies as I am sure you guys know!

    Anyways, happy hunting everyone and good luck!

    Hey Guys, I just wanted to say that I no longer have my shiny typhlosion, lost in a series of events.
    Meanwhile I'm better and hunting again, and I'm continuing my route 207 hunt on phase 3 on both Platinum and Pearl.
    hoping for a shiny ponyta or Machop, don't really want another zubat. On my white 2, I'm starting a hunt at lostlorn forest, hoping for petilil.
    And on HG I'm still SR'ing to reclaim Chikorita. Congrats and goodluck to all!

    Hey guys,

    First off, congrats to *Murkow on the Yanma, JAWAYami on the Hoppip, Cyndajay on the Ratata, Zane Clarthy on the Woobat, Helio on the Whismur, TheMaster327 on the Latios, and gustavo 14 on the Croagunk and Pidove! Awesome shinies guys!

    I have an update on my most recent MM hunt!

    After 1,160 eggs, a shiny female Ponyta finally hatched!



    Seeing those blue flames was such a relief, especially after a few short hunts prior to this one.

    She's been EV trained in Speed and Attack, and now I'm on to my next hunt! What it'll be, I'm not sure yet.

    Good luck to everyone!!

    And my sig has been updated, and hidden as well to save everyone from scrolling and scrolling and scrolling to get to the bottom of a page!
