    Between hunting the alphabet and now shiny-hunting, I'm at around 300 REs in the Solaceon Ruins, roughly. Really hoping something shines soon.

    Though, knowing what my luck is like, I am in for a long grind on this hunt. Still, keeping my fingers crossed. Wish me luck. I'm gonna need it.

    I continued my hunt for the "blue robot," Pawniard (my boyfriend thinks it's a robot xD)
    I was trying to get him live and decided to hunt off camera for 30 minutes while I watched some
    YouTube videos. My mom comes in, asks how I'm feeling. I look down SEE THE BLUE and THE SPARKLES.
    Dammit xD I missed it come across screen and I wasn't recording!

    Anywho, it took 2,060 encounters overall and it was 1,584 encounters after Duosion!
    Has a calm nature I believe, which is bad because it lowers attack xD but it's okay because the attack IV is horrible too!
    So, meh xD IVS 9-3-8-26-21-13

    I'm now up in the vicinity of 800 REs for Unown in Platinum's Solaceon Ruins (I've been playing all afternoon and part of the evening, and I'll be playing for about another seven hours from now). I moved out of the main hall into one of the small side chambers, so the shininess is open to 20 of the 26 letters (the other 6 only spawn in certain main halls). I am keeping my fingers crossed that I'll hear the sparkly sound soon, but I'm fully expecting to be at this for the next week.

    I'm averaging about two encounters a minute, or roughly 100 per hour. Seeing a lot of Unown but nothing's sparkling yet.

    Congrats too: TheMaster327 on Uxie, Maldoror on Piloswine, Ampharos_Spark on her second Boldore, Blue Shuckle on Shuckle, Scrufox86 on Shroomish, Cpchris on his second Shiny Koffing, cocoadragon on Chinchou, ohjeezitskim on Pawniard, Markasdarkas on Lapras and VictorC on Magikarp! I haven't hunted myself since Wednesday since I needed more study time for my exams which are on for the next two weeks, although I did manage to get my brother to do SR's for Squirtle for me and count them: I'm on 5,300 SR's for that now. I'm taking a break from study since I've been going hard all week(classes have been nothing but revision and I've been studying in all my five classes each hour, in tute, at recess and lunch and for 2+ hours at home) until Monday, since I have Monday and Tuesday off as I have no exams then. So, I'm going to be going very hard for Eevee! I should be able to get up to 13,000 RE's for it: I wonder if it'll shine? Good luck as always guys!

    I think I'm somewhere between 1,200 and 1,400 REs for Unown. Next time I randomly decide to RE something, I'll actually make an attempt to keep accurate count. This time, I started while I was away from home and didn't bother to count, and now it's too late to get any sort of accurate count.

    Still no shiny. But I'm not leaving these ruins without one

    Oh, so lucky, the base evolution of my favorite shiny ! I really should try to get one.
    How many times it took ? Was it long to box and hatcg eggs of Magikarp ? Was it difficult ? Did you have fun doing this one ? I really want to know if it worth me to try !
    Congratulations to the latest shinies and good luck to everyone !

    Update on the CH starting tomorrow: I'm HOPING to post the list tonight at midnight EDT (GMT-4)
    Apologies if it ends up being late, I have my uncle's funeral today and I'm not quite sure how long I'll be kidnapped by family for it.

    Also, I won't be able to update the list today, so sorry to anyone who finishes the current hunt in its final hours >.<

    Wow... I'm still in utter shock...

    First off, congrats to all the hunters I've missed on their new shinies, and best of luck on the new community hunt! I do hope I'll be able to join you guys.

    And second... Well, I've been training up a mono-poison team for a challenge my friend made, and as I was training it, I was reminded of how much I love shiny Weezing. So, I decided that after I bred and trained my team, I'd use my good Weezing and try to MM myself a good shiny version. To that end, I figured I'd use the GTS and try to get a foreign female Weezing to get the highest possible chance of eggs as well as the increased shiny odds. After being disappointed in the lack of female Weezings looking for legal trades, I decided to put one of my Dream Radar Porygons that I can't use and don't want on offer and see if I could get a foreign one by chance. Then I forgot all about it for a few days, until I was reminded about it this morning at work. After the first part of my shift was over, I came home and checked the GTS. In all honesty, I didn't expect anyone to give me a female Weezing for my Porygon, so I was pleasantly surprised when the screen took a long time to load, indicating that the trade had indeed happened.

    Then the Weezing appeared, and my jaw dropped. And stayed dropped for a good thirty seconds.

    A magnificent sea green gasbag with clouds of purple swirling around the main body. Level 100, Bold nature, fairly decent competitive moveset. I couldn't believe it. I checked it out with the stat judge in Nimbasa city. It's flawless, probably RNG'd or maybe Pokechecked (I'm guessing Pokecheck is more likely). I checked out the EVs with Bianca and apparently it's not maxed out its EVs, but it's "worked hard" (whatever that means) on HP and Defense.

    I'm still in shock. I've never been given a shiny over the GTS. I think either someone really hated this Weezing and just wanted to get rid of it, or possibly a younger sibling/idiot friend started messing with someone's cartridge. It's hard to imagine someone wanting a Porygon THAT badly.

    But whatever. Wherever this thing came from and however it ended up being traded to me, I'm really happy about this girl! A shiny I've wanted for ages and it came to me in the most unexpected way. Not too shabby! ^_^

    I had a similar incident when looking for a female turtwig to MM. I logged into the GTS and had that same pause and thought "well, now I can get started breeding" and the thing popped up as a level 5 shiny female. It passed the smell test (right location, stats were correct, etc), so I can only assume it was someone's clone.

    If its from Pokecheck its RNG abused most likely. There's no real way to tell though, upload it to Pokecheck and see if it matches another poke on there. Pokecheck will also tell you its legal.
    But there's no difference between a "hunted" shiny and a "RNGed" shiny.

    Congratulations to the latest shinies and good luck to everyone !
    the karp eggs hatch very quickly actually. i could barely get a full party of eggs before they started hatching, so i just hatched them as i got them. I had a lot of fun with this hunt. i really wanted to get a shiny gyarados with my OT that wasn't the event shiny from gen 4. Was hoping for the DW ability moxie but didn't get it. I am not upset tho cause he has 31 IVs in speed if you really want a shiny gyarados i reccomend getting one, it's worth it!

    In a literal sense, no, but there is that satisfaction from the kind of effort it takes to find a "hunted" shiny. That's why shiny hunters are hunters and not RNG'ers, most often. RNG definitely takes great effort to master, but again, it's the type of effort hunters like.

    As for my hunt, which is now at 2500 SR's, I've got to thinking about what kind of ball I should try to catch Mewtwo in, when it decides to shine. So I've decided to ask? What would fit best with shiny Mewtwo?

    Hmm... Well personally, I think a Dusk Ball would look very nice.

    And I was wondering since I must have missed something, what is the community challenge this month?

    I wish I could participate in the next CH but My exam is getting closer and closer. I'll be hunting for Deino but it'll be a slow hunt. Right now I'm @ 180 eggs.
    Anyways, Congratz on the recent shinies and good luck. ^-^

    *whoops and does a happy dance* HUNT COMPLETE! 117 REs into Day 4 of the Shiny Unown Hunt and THIS pops up!

    Bold nature, Atk 36, Def 30, Sp. Atk 35, Sp. Def 28, Speed 25. Levitate ability.

    I was leading with my Gyarados, since it's only lvl 22 and still knows the move Tackle, which can bring down a shiny's HP in a couple whacks without worrying about accidentally KO-ing it. Three whacks and one great ball and Unown X is ALL MINE!!!

    *saves three times, just in case*

    Edit: how does one post an actual picture here, and not just a link?

    To post an actual picture, you need to make an account on a picture-hosting site, like Photobucket or Snapfish. Upload your pictures to that site, and then put the URL of the picture in between
    [IMG][/IMG] tags. Then your picture should show up as a picture and not a link. Sites like that also usually have IMG tag links for all of your photos that you can just copy.

    I have a Photobucket account, and I have been using the IMG tag link. It still just shows as a URL and not a picture ;_;
