    That's how I'm feeling right now with my Eevee hunt You're not alone

    Congrats on the recent shinies, but I feel bad for Dylz that now 2 people today have gotten shiny Metangs and you're still hunting ˇ.ˇ


    Also, I'd like some people's opinions...

    The idea of a BQ sounds okay to me - not something I REALLY want to do, but something that still seems interesting and fairly fun. But if I do one, it won't be due to a reset of my Black 2 since I really don't want to reset any of my games...I just don't like that idea. And this would never be something I do as a primary way to play the games (ie. If/when R/S remakes come out, this won't be how I play through it the first time). In other words, no matter what, I'll be buying a new game to do a BQ.

    That being said, I'm fairly set on the idea that if I ever do a BQ, I'll get White 2. Today's black friday, and on amazon, it's on sale ("on sale") for $30. Can I get a better price some other time? Maybe closer to Christmas? I'm really in no rush for it, since I already have hunts I'll want to do on Black 2 first, plus school atm, plus work (I'll probably be working 40 hours/week by next Spring), plus whatever else. So there's definitely no need for me to get it today other than the possibility of getting it at a cheaper price. And I haven't really checked anywhere else - I think I checked 1 or 2 stores' sites and they weren't on sale at all.

    Also, I have $100 on one of my amazon accounts just from PrizeRebel, which I was saving for anything I might want at some point, whether it be a future game system or game or whatever. Basically my main reason for picking amazon.

    I'm assuming anyone's answer will be to wait, but I figured I'd check since I don't know much about game prices/black friday shopping, so maybe $30 will be about as good a sale as I can get on just the game.

    Anyways, good luck hunting everyone.

    EDIT: save before recieving the eggs and SR after hatching them is what I mean...

    I think shininess along with IVs and such are determined when you receive the egg, not when you hatch it. So SRing a team of eggs wouldn't work.

    Yeah, you save before you recieve the eggs, then SR for a certain nature you want.

    I'm almost positive the price will go down before Christmas but if you want it sooner I'd maybe wait until Monday if you're getting it online. Cyber monday usually has better online prices than black friday. Good luck either way.

    Hey guys! I'm back after being gone for over a year. I unfortunately had to sell my DS and 6 pokemon games when I needed to move. I recently bought a 3DS and Pokemon X and will hopefully eventually get my old games again. I lost all my shinies and events but I'm going to start shiny hunting again soon.


    I don't have anything too special to trade at the moment. I do have all the starters and pokerus though and pokemon X exclusives.

    Well, after some thinking I'm going to stop breeding for a shiny heracross (after only 25 eggs and getting a non-shiny with perfect speed IV's) and attempt to get one that is also jolly and hopefully good stats later on since I'm breeding one for my team anyway.

    So most likely I will just focus on breeding shinies that I think look cool for now, like Swellow, since there's a swarm now and I need for my dex.

    Congrats on the new shinies since my last post.

    Well, I have just gone over 3,000 SRs, at exactly 3,015. Now I would be beginning to "expect" Lugia to shine, but I'll wait before wnating it to appear.

    Should be fun.

    Massive congrats on the black dragon Rayquaza, Kitty! Also, that Pachirisu that shone is quite nice. Good luck all, hoping for my shiny between 4,000 and 5,000 SRs.

    After hatching about a hundred more Staryus, I have no space left in my boxes. Is there a faster way to get rid of all the excess Staryus than releasing them one by one? I figured out how to select an entire box of Pokemon at once but it seems like I can only move them to different boxes.

    hatch the 5 in your party, but save before you get any of them. then if none are shiny, just SR and get them again. the pokemons stats and IVs are chosen as soon as you get the egg

    This, or what I do is when I go to place them in the box, instead of actually placing them in the box, I just release them while they are in my party. It is easy for me to keep track because I always have more eggs waiting for me in the boxes to grab. I used to hatch them all, box all the non shinies, and then mass release. The mass release would take like 5-10 minutes in itself. By releasing them in you pc while they are in your party makes it faster.

    Side note- Just got my shiny charm in W2 and am about to start trading with my B2 to get it in there. So excited to see what December's hunt will be! :3 Happy hunting everyone and congrats on those Metang guys! Makes me want to hunt it again!

    This is actually a very handy method of using the MM. With the help from the Nursery I managed to hatch a shiny Pachirisu in less than 7 hours from a total of 237 eggs ^^

    Congrats on the Baltoy. A nice shiny that you don't really see much of. Good work!

    Until the community hunt begins I'm gonna preoccupy myself with a little MM hunt for a shiny I've always wanted... Shiny Caterpie! I've just boxed up 150 eggs so I'll start hatching them tomorrow.

    Good luck everyone.

    Senrab, I know that you don't have to listen to me, but don't give up, especially after all that work you put into it. Just make sure you're doing something else at the time, like watching a DVD or something. Otherwise it can get very mentally draining. Give up AFTER you've finished your hunt, if you want to. Although, at the end of the day, it's your choice! We all know how it is sometimes, though, but just persevere with it for that rush.

    Congrats, lavaburst! I found a shiny Baltoy long ago, when I was hunting for everything but, and he/she/it has really grown on me in the meantime. It's a very weird looking ... thing ... but I still really like it regardless.

    Not too long now and I'll have the Unova dex complete ...it feels pretty good! I just realised that I have to evolve Sneasel at night, which is a bummer. I was hoping to have it done by the end of today to get that Round Charm. No shiny has found its way to me yet, which is also a bit of a bummer!

    I went and confronted Kyurem for the first time ever last night. The battle made me laugh. I had my Leavanny up front, and she used X-Scissor twice, because I couldn't be bothered switching in another Pokemon, and then I threw one Dusk Ball, and it was caught! I was just thinking that if it happened to be a shiny Kyurem, I probably would have sat there for hours trying to stuff it in a ball, gritting my teeth and hoping it doesn't struggle, etc. Just the way, huh?
