    Static in SS doesn't effect getting a shiny, right? (Like cute charm X.X)

    Also, sorry posting a lot. This will be my last post until I find a shiny. Good luck hunters!
    No, Static doesn't affect shiny odds, though my Mareep hunt would have begged to differ.

    Anywho, I'm up to 16,406 REs on Route 35. Hoping to get it before 20k at the moment, but I guess I'll see. I'll be doing more hunting later tonight, so hopefully I hit 17k by the end of the day.

    Good luck on all your hunts!

    Also, Frost Mage, if you do decide to SR a starter in emerald, be aware of the broken RNG and the fact that you would have to make a new save file every 100 or so SRs in order to actually get a shiny starter.

    Well, just hatched a shiny Elgyem after 421 MM eggs! It was my first attempt at MMing a Pokémon with its DW ability, and of course it failed... Which is dumb because most of the other Elgyem I hatched had the Analytic ability, and the shiny one ended up with Telepathy ugh. I've still got like 120 eggs to hatch though, so maybe I'll get lucky. But even if I don't, oh well! A shiny is a shiny!

    Congrats and good luck.

    I heard from somewhere that some people consider it as cheating and was just wondering about it.
    I can't wait for the shiny charm! I'm breezing through White 2 right now (just finished the E4 last night) and keeping track of all the pokemon I need to complete the Unova and national pokedexes. I can't wait, it'll be great. I don't consider it cheating, just something really REALLY great to aim for.

    http://i961.photobucket.com/albums/a...d2cb5898ab.jpg

    A 4 YEAR HUNT OVER!

    Excellent nature if I do say so myself

    After 27165 I think it was earned though :P

    Congrats on all the new shinies and good luck everyone.

    To all those shiny hunters who feel like giving up, I hope this gives you some inspiration!

    Awyeah! [insert congratulatory word here]



    (Seriously, everyone's getting them lately.)
    4-year long hunt done, the best nature by a mile, the best gender for an Alakazam (they look more masculine to me.)
    Couldn't have went any better!
    (inb4 it has 31 Special Attack IVs and 31 Speed IVs.)

    I had gotten to the maximum amount of Game Corner Coins in Leaf Green, trying to get a shiny Abra, but I've had no luck, so I just bought a Porygon and moved on.

    As for my current hunt, I planned on dual hunting on both HG and SS, but for the time being I'm putting HG on hold and doing it only on SS. (I wanted to RNG for specific ID numbers on the both of them, so that when I got the shiny, it would have a cool-looking ID number on it, but I ran into complications with HG that I didn't run into with SS.)
    I've looked at the shiny formes of all three Johto starters, and I've decided that I liked Feraligatr the most. So let's hope Totodile is the one I get!
    I would have really liked Chikorita and its evolutions' shiny sprite if their leaves were actually a pure golden color (which is what I remembered them as), but it turned out the leaves are actually orange. :/


    Good luck on not having your hunts last 4 years everybody, because that must have been really discouraging. But having your hunt last that long means that the shiny is that much more special once you finally get it.

    Congrats to both on both of your Abras!

    So I've had a hard time figuring this out from someone who doesn't suggest some form of RNG abuse for finding shinies in Pokemon Emerald. Without abusing the system, I've heard that when SRing, you have to create a new file every 100 SRs or so, since the game doesn't pick a new frame when you reset the game. So basically I'm wondering how to SR in Pokemon Emerald. :3

    20,000 REs *headdesk* I've been at this for nearly 200 hours and going on three weeks and it's really starting to get to me. I'm sick of finding nothing but blue Golurk and I'm sick of being stuck in the Tower and I just want this damn hunt to end!

    It it stretches out to 30k or 40k I am not going to be able to stand it. I just won't.

    Just wanted to make sure you know this before you start, Emerald has a broken RNG system. This means that it is like you're playing with a dry battery 100% of the time. SRing is hard to do since you need to know where the shiny frame is and where to hit it. Here's an excerpt from Smogon:

    Instead of choosing a different seed each time the game boots up (and by extension, a different sequence of pseudo-random numbers), Emerald always sets its seed as 0. This means that every time the game starts, the same numbers are always output in the same order. In an attempt to hide this, Emerald asks its RNG to spit out numbers at a considerable pace; approximately 60 times per second. Each of these instances is known as a "frame".

    "The one downside to Emerald’s RNG is that you may have to wait a while for a frame with a good spread to roll around. In fact, a flawless spread on a wild or legendary Pokémon can take weeks to occur, thus it is all but impossible to obtain."

    If you want to SR for a starter you need to know how to get an early shiny frame or just buy Ruby or Sapphire and SR there (Like me ).


    (If you do want to get Ruby or Sapphire and it has a dead battery, I can link you to a youtube vid which helped me replace 4 batteries).

    I'm currently working, with my friend, on the National Pokédex, and I have around 130 Pokémon for now, wich is not bad for less than 24 hours!
    I can't wait to get that Shiny Charm. It will help me a lot and I will finally stop to make a jealous of myself when you guys are getting shinies with it!
    Congratulations on the latest shinies and good luck everyone, especially you, Cyberra and Charizardmaster#1!

    Finally got my shiny Seedot last night.

    Too bad my other two hunts failed miserably (Totodile instead of Cyndaquil and then Numel + Skarmory instead of Trapinch >.<)
    At least I got a few shinies this month. Trying for Gothita next, maybe I'll get lucky and it will be a short hunt.

    Also, since no one seems to want to volunteer, how about we all reclaim shinies we've lost for next month?

    Well, its official. Pineco hates me. I've done over 16k encounters for it and still nothing but I'm confident it'll shine before July (it better!) so I just gotta hang in there.

    I... I don't even...

    So! After My shiny Aron (Bronx) appeared on my Ruby I was feeling a bit tired of hunting so I decided to take a break and just focus on other things (such as getting used to my new job at PetSmart). Tried to continue my Black 2 BQ but only did 111 more REs in a few days before growing bored with it. And today I came back to the forum to catch up on the last five or so pages that I missed and found the desire to start hunting again. I went back to my Heart Gold where I've been continuing the BQ through Kanto just to see if I can do it.

    Anyway, I decided that I wanted to MM my next shiny and finally got around to catching a female Houndour so I can get a shiny one. The first one roared me away and the second female took nearly an hour to appear. But I eventually caught her and began breeding with my lucky japanese Cyndaquil (he's the father to all of my MM shinies on this file except for Gizmo my shiny Luxray).

    And after only 7 eggs this beautiful girl appeared!

    http://luxrayteen.deviantart.com/art...253A1372181269

    Shiny Houndour! I had a feeling this was going to be a short hunt but I had convinced myself that it was just wishful thinking! I am quite happy with her being female, as I've never raised a female Houndour before (plus I had a sneaking suspicion that I was going to get a female). Haven't even gotten the chance to look up names for her yet so suggestions are welcome!

    The best way of SRing in Emerald:
    - If you're trying to get a shiny starter, start a save file, do ~50-100 SRs. If you don't get a shiny, start a new file and do the same thing over again until you get a shiny.
    - If you're trying to get a shiny legendary, what you have to do is save in front of the legendary (obviously), then instead of SRing if it isn't shiny, run away, leave the area, come back and re-encounter the legendary again.

    Huh, so Ruby and Sapphire don't have that problem? Interesting... Well I guess if I want to SR for a shiny Groudon or any other 3rd Gen legendaries I should either get HeartGold or a copy of Ruby or Sapphire.

    HELL YEAA! Shiny Pineco after 17,332 REs!



    Turns out I was over 17k not 16k xD. But I'm glad this finally shone! My Impish sync failed but it got Bold which is still pretty good since it raises defense and Forrestress isn't really known for being a hard hitter so I don't mind the -Atk. I'm gonna take a small break from hunting to EV train now and I just remembered... I still have 4 boxes of Swinub eggs to hatch lol >.<!

    As a note to Cyberra, Golurk would still count for 1 of these (or two, if you changed it to Pokemon that learn Fly). How about we do a specific generation thing, like obtain a Gen 2 Pokemon in shiny form (but not on the second gen games)? I think a lot of us would be up for something like the Fly thing...but then there's things like Gligar that would need to be specified.

    Because I haven't done so yet, I'll find time to link my videos of shinies starting from Cyndaquil and some photos.

    Okay gang, I volunteered to help Dangertrout out for July's comminuty hunt! And since I loved your propositions of community hunt, City of Delusion (wich I thank you), I decided to take them as the three options for the next community hunt.

    - Obtain a genderless shiny.
    - Obtain a shiny that can fly.
    - Obtain a shiny Pokemon that Ash owns or possessed (released, traded or gave, preevolved form, in training or unofficial) in the anime.

    So you guys can vote for your favorite! You can only vote for one theme and, when ready, you have to send this vote in my private message box. Thanks!

    Planning to get HG today. Maybe I will start a bq on it. Heard you can just look at the photo to see if you got a shiny starter to choose, right?
    Also, can all the legendary there be SRed?
