    congrats to TheMaster327 for Uxie and cocoadragon for swinub, also to CoD for Staryu (one of my fav shinies), and 2rsa for virizion!

    well done guys!
    as for me.. i got into the 15000+ SR's for my secret target..
    and, along with that, i reached 10k+ starters after that ''5 SR cyndaquil''.. so i guess that's ''fair.

    also, can't wait for CH!

    good luck to everyone!
    Please, feel free to check my channel in youtube. I started recording my attempts on shinies!

    Hey guys, new to Seribii, shiny hunter for two years now. Man, I feel awkward, I'm always bad at intro posts. But I began to shiny hunt two years ago when I found my shiny Hoothoot, Goldey, now a Noctowl. I think I'll enjoy talking with you guys about shiny Pokemon, none of my RL friends don't shiny hunt.

    yeah, except Illuminate, Illuminate has that effect in R/S/FR/LG because that is its only effect.

    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.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    227 encounters after Clefairy, one of the few non-Metang pokemon in the Chasm I do not already have appears:

    That leaves Solrock and Metang. I have a feeling a duplicate is coming my way...

    Congrats to ElectricBassClef x2, Jessara, City Of Delusion x2, Storm_Dragoon, Laurelai x2, maldoror x3, Zane Clarthy, TheEliteEmpoleon, HGaddict, Papousse, varanus_komodoensis, 2rsa, 201238 x2, Blue Shuckle, Frost Mage, cocoadragon, ohjeezitskim, TheMaster327, and anyone else who got a shiny that I may have missed since my last post.

    I’m still on my hunt for a shiny Aron and along the way my party and I caught Pokerus which, apparently while benefiting pokemon EVs, makes humans sick (I’m joking of course. But I did get Pokerus on the same day I started getting a cold...) and exactly a week later and after over at least 1000 random encounters (I’ve been hunting on some of my other games between then and now) since the last one, I ran into another shiny! A second shiny Boldore, a male this time. I’m still not going to leave Mistralton Cave in White 2 until I get a shiny Aron. There are a few crazy coincidences between Boldore #1 and Boldore #2: First both appeared on a Wednesday at a week apart from each other, both have an Attack reducing nature, both have a flawless Attack IV and both have the same IVs in Sp.Defense and Speed.

    Good luck to all on your shiny hunts!

    Didn't hunt the past few days, but today I did 200 REs on just Black 2, mainly just to bring it to the same number of REs as my Platinum hunt. So now both hunts are 1,600 REs in...

    Hopefully I'll hunt tomorrow :x Good luck everyone!

    You might want to use magnet pull instead of illuminate if you are hunting specifically for metang. Also, its been over a month since m last shiny and i am at 9,102 encounters. Looks like that luck i had during the bug CH has run out. I seem to have alot of hunts go over the odds

    Ok Firstly congratulations to... HGaddict on Geodude, Papousse on Skitty X 3, Dangertrout on Petilil, cocoadragon on swinub, pxm1 on oshawott, varanus_komodoensis on carvanha, 2rsa on Virizion, 201238 on Electrike, electricBassClef on Eevee, Blue Shuckle on Latias, Frost Mage on Volcarona, JohnNiles on Rhyhorn, City Of Delusion on Staryu, Laurelai on Vulpix, maldoror on clefairy, ohjeezitskim on Duosion, Themaster327 on Uxie, maldoror on piloswine, Blue Shuckle on shuckle! As well as any others I may have missed.

    Secondly I have shiny news! Ok so I decided to split my shiny hunting on black 2 up a little as I was unsure what to go for. I chose 4 different pokemon of grass/water type so they count for the CH. Well anyway I am hatching my last chosen pokemon, Feebas from box 1 when I hatch a shiny.... Shroomish! I was collecting 4 eggs from the box and then getting a 5th egg from the daycare man and I left shroomish in from when I was hatching the shroomish boxes. So Community Hunt Complete! X4 Although as I hadn't planned in advance for the shroomish it has lax nature but I wasn't intending on using it for competitive use. I may level it up to be my capturing pokemon. And I am pleased I finally have it because I have tried many times before on black and white for a shiny shroomish and never had luck.

    Thirdly good luck to everyone still hunting! Those still trying for CH I hope your shiny comes along before the end of the month!
    Shinies are good.

    I am assuming that, since the letter of an Unown is no longer generated by IVs like they were in Gen II, that any Unown can be shiny in Gen V, and not just specific letters.

    I am certainly hoping that's the case, since the floor of the Solaceon Ruins I'm hunting on only spawns the F form, and if the F can't be shiny then I just wasted four hours.

    That's true. I got a shiny Unown J when hunting all the Unown in Solaceon Ruins about a month or two ago... Previous gens only had I and V as possible shinies...

    *huge sigh of relief* Good to know.

    I keep running into more and more Unown that I can't escape from, even though their ability is Levitate, not Shadow Tag or Arena Trap. So what the heck...?

    I have a fainted magnet pull Magnemite as my lead. Watchog is there for hypnosis and super fang. They are followed by a flame body Volcarona and three eggs of whatever I am currently MMing (I just switched to Charmander).

    I've started hatching Deino eggs. They take forever to hatch but shiny Hydreigon is one of my dream shinies so won't give up. So far I'm around 60 eggs.
    Good luck everyone! ^-^

    Congrats to Blue Shuckle on Shuckle, and Scrufox86 on Shroomish!

    So I was thinking about two hours ago how it's nearly the end of the month and how I've gotten at least one shiny. And then while I was hunting, I was thinking about how on either of the games I'm hunting on, I could easily end up getting my first duplicate shiny. And yesterday I had gotten my Black 2 REs to match my Platinum ones for a bit of a race...

    Well, I was starting up again after a quick break after hitting 50 REs, and 3 REs in on Black 2, I found a Shiny Koffing. I didn't see it at first because I was adjusting the position of the XL slightly and wasn't looking at the screen. Then when I was starting to look at Platinum to see what had appeared, I heard the sparkles on Black 2. So yup, another Koffing! 1,653 REs since my last Koffing. This one again is female, level 10, Sassy nature (first one was Lax), somewhat of a clown. I think I'll evolve this one into Weezing eventually, since her IVs seem slightly better, and I was thinking maybe the nature is better? Not that it matters since I won't really be using it, but...

    Would really like that Growlithe, and at this point, another shiny Koffing is last on the list of what I want to get from this area, since it'd be more useful to get new shinies, and seeing as a third shiny Koffing won't even get me a new shiny evolution...

    Still glad to have gotten another shiny, even though it's another Koffing since Weezing will still be a new shiny. I guess that puts me at a whopping 2 shinies this month But not bad considering how few REs I did.

    Good luck everyone!
