    So, after Roselia, I'm at Fuego Ironworks for Number 6. Currently 995 REs there, as I am Magnet Pulling for Magnemite. Let's hope it or Magmar sparkles!

    Route 35 is at 1,350 REs as well, so lemme grab a quick shiny from there.

    Otherwise, congrats to all and good luck!

    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.



    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.
    True True. Ill keep it. 1/8192 chance afterall. Thanks for the insight!

    So I have still had no luck with hatching another shiny with shiny charm! Been almost 2 weeks since my last shiny! I am now hunting Treekco to take a break from Oshawott. I've almost hatched 2000 eggs between the two. Congrats to everyone who has gotten a shiny recently and please pass your luck to me.

    Blanket congratulations to everyone before me who received a shiny!
    My current hunt for shiny Giratina is now at 2000 Sr's. Larvitar is at 530 mm eggs.
    Hoping either one shines soon.
    I can usually get 500 Sr's in a day before I call it quits, What about you guys?

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.
    In HG/SS you can see if their shiny before you pick them. If its the same for XY then I might consider SRing for a shiny starter but we'll just have to wait and see.

    Community hunt complete x7!

    After 9 days of fishing shiny Qwilfish appears!



    So happy I got this! I noticed the pink right away as it crossed the screen and I couldn't help but yell out "YES!!" when it saw it. My jolly sync failed and it got Lax and the wrong ability but I don't really mind that much. I was gonna do another fishing hunt for Remoraid on White but I need a break from fishing so I'll just put it on hold for now. I've decided to go for Wailmer on White and if you didn't know, the only way to find Wailmer in the wild is in shaking spots. So I see this being a difficult hunt but hopefully luck is on my side!

    Good luck everyone!

    Congrats to all recent shinies .

    Encounter:

    Summary:
    [IMG]http://i42.*******.com/8yb9l1.jpg[/IMG]

    This BQ has been great so far in terms of me getting the shinies I've wanted from each route. Shiny #4 I am hoping will be Seviper or Swablu since I'll be repel trick hunting on that route.

    Good luck to all current hunts .

    I logged onto the GTS this morning, and it automatically downloaded a shiny Lileep. It's been so long since I was on the GTS, that I can't even remember what I offered for Lileep. It's moves and location are correct, and it's stats look ok (I'm still checking them), but it's Female and Shiny, so imagine it's of questionable origin.

    My understanding, it's safe to use as long as everything lines up?

    Firstly congratulations to all shinies since my last post.

    Oh my I am so excited!!! I have news... well while hatching through the remaining 6.5 boxes of Bulbasaur eggs... I found another shiny Bulbasaur (male like the first one) at egg 139. So Community Hunt Complete!
    But that is not all, I continued hatching eggs from the boxes and egg 150 hatched and is a shiny FEMALE Bulbasaur! My third female shiny starter. I am so pleased! And that means I can say it again.. Community Hunt Complete!

    I think this is also the first time I have completed the CH three times (and I am still waiting on my shiny Squirtle! lol)

    good luck to everyone still hunting!
    Shinies are good.

    This just happened.



    After double checking she wasn't carrying Explosion I switched in Breloom to put her to sleep. I flung three Quick Balls and all broke open after the first shake. I switched to Ultra Balls and got a Critical Capture on my first one.

    OT/ID. No./Relaxed nature
    Unburden/Stats/Moves
    Double sparkles!

    I also test evolved Yanma into Yanmega but prefer the incredible blue of Yanma's sprite. I was planning on stopping for the night once he hit L45 which makes this shiny even luckier!

    Congrats on the Ponyta, Gastly, Qwilfish, Volbeat, Bulbasaur(s) and the traded Lileep!

    Congrats to *Murkrow on shiny Drifblim, Scrufox86 on BOTH shiny Bulbasaurs, Master Leo on shiny Volbeat, and City of Delusion on shiny Qwilfish!

    I hit 11000 REs total on my White 2 without a shiny today. But I'm sure that that shiny will appear in this 1000 encounters! Good luck with all your hunts!

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!
    You can probably guess my answer, but I definitely plan on making a starter the first pokemon of my BQ, also hopefully Fennekin. I'm debating about what I'll do if the starter setup is like SS/HG, and if I'll start the BQ if I were to find a different shiny starter than Fennekin. Chespin is growing on me a small bit, but Froakie I'm still not fond of. Like you, I'm also going to try not to spoil myself with shiny colors...Which I've been thinking a fair bit about lately when I consider that I currently don't really have to pay too close attention to my games as I know what I'm looking for. However, I'll have to be very vigilant come X/Y if I don't know what the shiny forms look like, which means making sure to pay attention for the entire appearance of each encountered pokemon in case the shiny form looks very similar to the normal form.

    I'm currently making that BQ a priority in terms of shiny hunting, meaning I don't plan on making any hunts that supersede the X/Y BQ. Of course, that's what I'm planning 4-5 months before the game's release, so there's a lot of time for me to change my plans, but I doubt that will happen.

    ----

    Well, I decided to stop SRing for Chimchar so I could work on getting the starters switched over. Took me nearly 35 SRs to complete, since Turtwig caused a lot of problems in that about the first 10-15 were males, but also because I was so trained to go after Chimchar, that instead of mindlessly spam-clicking A and clickin Turtwig, I mindlessly kept moving over to Chimchar -_-. I was also breeding Chimchar and Piplup on my BQ game, which is what was distracting me more. So yeah...Off topic, the first Piplup I brought over (which was male, wasn't thinking at the time), ended up having decent IVs now that he's level 35 while I used him to breed Chimchar and Piplup...30 HP, 1 Atk, 30 Def, 30 Sp. A., 18 Sp. D, 31 Speed. I may just end up training him up after my BQ

    I only did 100 REs since I worked and then spent more free time breeding than hunting...And I did do 5 more SRs just to get me up to 1,700 total SRs, and now I'm done SRing them :x And during the first trade I did, I traded my Machoke, so he's now a Machamp. Glad to have that out of the way.

    Tomorrow I'm working and then probably going to see IM3 with friends, so I won't get much hunting done...But Tuesday I should have off, so I think I'll once again try for 1k REs! I suppose I'll go back to hunting Growlithe too, seeing as I really only put it aside to make use of the 2nd Platinum cart while I had it.

    Good luck everyone

    Sorry to those whom I didn't know which Pokémon you got. With the way I congratulate people, if you don't mention somewhere what Pokémon you got then unless I remember from reading through the thread, I won't be able to tell what shinies you found! D:

    I haven't really lost any special shinies per say, luckily! But I did get a shiny Igglybuff from Crystals Odd Egg that I had to say goodbye to when I restarted the game. Her name was Lime, and sadly I'm not sure if I'll ever reclaim her since they got rid of the green swirl on shiny Igglybuff's head... I'm considering reclaiming it though.
    Other than that, the only other shiny I want and don't have is my boyfriends shiny Kyurem. I plan to get my own one day! I even have a nickname for it already, haha!

    I'm considering it, not sure if I will when it's first released since I play through the game the first time with my boyfriend, but maybe I'll restart/buy the other copy and SR after! As for who I'll SR, it depends what they all look like! While liking the starter does come into it, if the shiny form isn't the best, I'd probably breed it instead, as is the case with Oshawott and other starters!

    ______________________________________

    Updates!

    ...No shinies...

    On my honey tree hunt, I am down to 20/70 honey pots, and still no shiny to show for it after 7513 SR's! Still getting Burmys and Combees every single day, though today I did crack and put 3 honey pots on a different tree, and ended up with Heracross for the first time since I started this hunt! I don't even want Heracross but hey it was a fresh face! Super hoping for Aipom tomorrow, and maybe for Aipom to shine too?

    As for Relic Castle and my quest for the crocodile, I'm on 3759 RE's, so I'm past Pidove but below Lillipup so far. I'm not holding my breathe for a short hunt, but I'm hoping for somewhere around the odds anyways, or at least under 11000!

    Interesting to note also, if I can get 1 more shiny this month then that'd be a record for me, since my record so far is 2 shinies in 1 month twice (January & May). Seeing people like CoD getting 9 shinies is bizarre to me!

    I also managed to nab me a Japanese Anticipation female Eevee off the GTS last night, so as soon as Mudkip is finished with (it's a slow hunt because my BQ's are number 1 priority) I'm going to be hatching for a shiny Magic Bounce Espeon! If I end up with some non-hidden ability shiny Eevees however, I'm also eyeing up Umbreon, Vaporeon and Jolteon, so I'll keep hatching until one of them has Anticipation! I'm not bothered about natures and stats much, so a shiny Eeveelution with bad stats is fine with me anyways!

    Also, just because a shiny is always exciting, even if it's not yours, my boyfriend (yes him again) found and caught a shiny Kyurem today after 2553 SR's! So when I said no shinies, I just meant myself, haha! But he named it Zero after many suggestions from me, so there's a little bit of my legacy on that shiny!
    It's his 6th shiny, but after losing 2 and running from 1 he still only has 3, so it's a big deal for him!

    Good luck everyone on your hunts, as always!

    2 weeks between shinies is reasonable, I don't think you can call it a drought. unless you're playing 24/7.... oh god! I've RUINED all your lives with shiny hunting competition!!!! Don't spend all your time playing pokemon! go out into the world and live your lives! LIVE!!!!!!!

    Having said that, I'm going to float an idea for next month's CH. Instead of the usual hunt, how about making it more of a contest? (with no prize outside of the ability to say you won)
    I would update every week with the top 5 hunters. The contest would be something like "Most shinies obtained through random encounters". Good idea? Bad idea?
    This is probably a terrible idea. please don't start skipping out on life for a silly pokemon contest on a forum.

    it's official, my MM hunt for Oshawott is my second longest hunt for now, with 525 eggs hatched and still no shiny.

    Let's see if it will take the first spot away from Squirtle (over 3000 eggs)

    Though I obviously prefer getting it early, preferably before 1400 eggs

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.

    Having said that, I'm going to float an idea for next month's CH. Instead of the usual hunt, how about making it more of a contest? (with no prize outside of the ability to say you won)
    I would update every week with the top 5 hunters. The contest would be something like "Most shinies obtained through random encounters". Good idea? Bad idea?

    No offense intended, but I think we all have lives outside of Pokemon, and school counts

    1,000 REs for Magnemite, but I'm in a bad mood > won't be bothered to hunt much.

    Edit: Fair enough XD

    I wasn't being serious i was just teasing at the idea that 2 weeks without a shiny is a drought, when there are people with months or years without seeing one

    Congrats to everyone on their new shinies! Some really nice ones have been found ^^ I love this thread, everyone is so supportive to eachother!

    I have a question though, and this is not to flame anyone, I'm just honestly curious about what you guys think about the Shiny Charm.. I personally don't want to use it as I feel the same way about that as I feel about chaining, I just find it takes away the challenge and the satisfaction of finding a shiny. (Personal opinion, not attacking anyone!) So I was wondering, what do my fellow hunters think about it?

    The "challenge" is still there, it's not like 1/2730 means you'll encounter 1 shiny every 10 encounter anyway. It still depends on luck.

    My first shiny after obtaining the charm only took me 5 days to obtain, but my second shiny with shiny charm took me three months.

    Also, if you're not used to it, obtaining a shiny via getting 40 chain is a challenge much harder than obtaining a shiny via RE-ing with standard chance.






    Besides, if it's the high chance that people are complaining about, well......

    in a case of breeding with MM VS breeding with shiny charm (no MM, boosted chance is purely from shiny charm, which should means the same chance as RE-ing with shiny charm)

    the former already has higher chance than the latter, and the chance becomes even higher in Gen 5, but people don't mind at all about it.
    Yet they are bothered by an alternate way to get a shiny that still has lower chance than a way that has existed ever since Gen 4.

    It still confuses me greatly even to this day, people don't mind getting a shiny with 1/1639 or even 1/1366 chance, yet they dislike an item that gives 1/2730 chance? What.


    note: I don't think it is fair to compare breeding with MM against breeding with MM + SC, since by default breeding with MM + SC would obviously win due to stacking 2 modifiers instead of just using 1 modifier.
