    Jeez... getting a shiny charm is so hard. I wish I could just borrow one from someone. orz I really want to continue MMing but I dont feel like I should bother until I get my shiny charm.

    Which is the route I might go if I start a BQ on my Diamond, since I don't find SRing very entertaining at all.

    MM rate with and without shiny charm is actually pretty close - a lot more so than RE/SR. You can fill your dex and MM at the same time.


    Ugh.. why am I posting so much? It's because I'm on the verge of restarting a game... I finished transfering off all the pokemon I want to keep, but I'm too lazy to move the TM's too, so I guess this is it. The clock has rolled over, and I'll be starting a playthrough on Memorial Day. No badge quest or funny stuff for me- I want to get up to Giratina as soon as possible.

    I need to do a few fast playthroughs for the Deoxys event too.

    Also forgot to note that my grass Exeggcute satisfies the community hunt. COMMUNITY HUNT COMPLETE.

    I have the entire Regional Dex on Black and it REALLY bothers me that I did all that work on Black and now I have to start over for Black 2. I can't transfer anything because I only have one DS. But I'm going to get a 3DS soon for X and Y so eventually this trading problem will be resolved.

    My absolute favorite thing about that video is when he freaks out when his game saves...like it wasn't going to save or something.

    EDIT:

    So I have boxes and boxes of eggs from my Spinda hunt, and I've been hatching them mindlessly as I've been posting and watching some Youtube videos and TV and things. There's also some other eggs littered around in these boxes; I think they're leftovers from breeding DWFs for people around the forum. And literally right after I pressed "post" in reply to cheshireusagi, THIS appeared:



    Sorry about my finger covering the lens there. It's almost 1 AM where I live.

    Here's another picture of it. I named her "Squali" for "Squalicorax", an extinct genus of Cretaceous shark.



    You will see that she got her Dream World ability, which is exciting! She has a Rash nature though, but I can deal with that. I'll evolve her into a purple Sharpedo as soon as I can!

    She's not the Spinda I'm looking for, but I've got two more boxes of eggs to hatch! I'm not sure if I should say that this hunt took ~30 eggs, which is how many Carvanha eggs I think I've ever hatched ever, or if I should say it took 220 eggs, which is how many eggs I've hatched so far for my Spinda hunt.

    What do you think, people of Serebii?

    Nice accident, varanus xD! That's a pretty cool find, and I hope you get your Spinda soon.

    I hadn't realised I didn't know what a shiny Carvanha looked like Well done! I would say you should put about 30 eggs - I haven't gotten a shiny in about 5,500 eggs, but I'm only at 304ish for Nidoran - I'd say, if I got one in the next egg, I did it in 305 eggs and not 5501 or whatever

    Actually, I've been told he faked that reaction (doesn't matter though). He kinda was Quad hunting, so it's not as bad as a 49k Oshawott or 101k for Drifloon.
    Enough of my opinion XD There's some larger RE/SR totals on YT, but 25k is pretty damn long. At least he persevered XD

    Anyways, I'm at 3,300 REs in Platinum and 3,100 in HG. Quick shiny would be nice.

    Don't give up! Something has to give sooner or later. Personally, when I'm in a long hunt and need motivation I like watching videos of people getting that shiny on Youtube. I actually printed out a shiny Eevee and shiny Squirtle sprite and stuck them on my DSI Xl and DS Lite for motivation. Remember, you're not the only one in a long hunt(I'm on 11,957 RE's for Eevee) and just keep going. There's nothing like the shiny you've been searching for to appear as a reward for your persistence! =)
    EDIT: I've seen that video too. Hands down the funniest shiny video I've ever seen!

    You know he said after the fact that he faked his reaction right?
    He's admitted to over-doing his reactions just to get more views.

    Anyways, congrats to everyone on their shinies! I know I don't post much, but I read every single reply on the thread ^^ Being on my phone most of the time makes replying a bit difficult.
    I've decided that I'll go back to hunting Entei/Raikou on my HG/SS games. A difficult hunt that I began before my hiatus. I don't remember how many SR's I'd done, but I'll be putting the number back to 0 I suppose. While doing that, I'll also still be hunting for Audino by training up my shinies to lv 100 by running into the exp. pińata's. I dont really remember the number I was at for that one either, so back to 0 for that as well I guess. Unless somehow someone knows what I was doing half a year or so back xD

    Like JohnNiles said, the odds are pretty close with or without the charm when it comes to MMing. I've completed 7 MM hunts with the charm and tbh, I haven't noticed that much of a difference from when I was MMing without the charm. My current MM hunt is over 1500 eggs, so don't get your expectations too high while MMing with the charm. Good luck!

    Gratz on the Carvanha looks awesome.
    Up to around 5000 re's on my Tangela hunt and have now moved on to searching inside the vibrank complex on my white two.
    Does everybody know where us shiny hunters can chat together to pass the time .
    I think i'd enjoy talking to people with similar goals to me.
    Just wondering whether there was a shiny chat page.
    Thanks to anyone who can help me.
    Good luck with all your hunts.

    Well.... I didn't get a shiny Eevee yesterday, but I did hit the 1000 hatched egg mark and am up to about 350 RE's for one with the shiny charm. It just takes soooo long to find an Eevee using the repel trick that when I calculate my totals for the day, I'm just like "I only did 100 RE's for thing?! I spent a few hours working on it!" ;p

    Anyways, more hunting will be done today. Congrats on that carvahna and all other shinies since my post from yesterday morning! Good luck everyone!

    Yup, just like me. My only hunt to reach nearly 26000 SR's happened to be for a shiny legendary, so I know exactly how you feel right now. It didn't exactly help that I happened to find a random shiny Sunkern in the middle of that 2 month hunt. However, I'd say 8000+ eggs for a Tauros or SR'ing for Reshiram/Zekrom (only to discover the shiny lock later) is a lot worse. If you need motivation, always remember that it can be much worse than where you're at.

    Community hunt complete x2!!
    While I was reading the new posts I finally found my shiny Virizion. Yay, I'm so happy.^-^
    I called her Artemis. She has serious nature and relatively superior potential.
    Catching her was hard. I ended up using all 25 healballs and 6 premierballs I had. I was going to catch her in my masterball because it was getting risky but I was bold and tried a few Ultra balls and caught her finally.
    Here is a pic:IMG_1190.jpg
    Sorry for the bad quality. The R & L buttons on my DSi don't work anymore so I SR on my very old and broken DS.

    Victini, Zekrom, and Reshiram are the only in-game Pokemon that can't be shiny. (aka not events)
