    Thanks for the congrats everyone! I'm very very very happy with KindCandy(who's now a Cofagrigus). I won't have much time to hunt today as I'm going out for lunch, getting $200 from my dad to spend, and then going to my BFF's party. I beat Eelesa last night, and am up to 307:44 of playtime XD. My next hunt is Route 5, hoping for Mincinno or Solosis to shine. Good luck to everyone as always! *huggles KingCandy*

    Congrats to RaichuArcanine on Yamask (yay, a birthday shiny!), TomoEGoto on Cyndaquil, Cyberra on Golurk (way to see it through, you really deserved that!), AceOfSpadez on Ditto, and telivisionhead on Magikarp (IMO, it's cooler to have a non-event one )!

    Tonight was another slowish Friday night at work, like last Friday, which is quite unusual as of late (especially since starting that week, Wednesdays have been so insanely good...So strange!). So I got done at 10 and after getting home, changing, eating, chatting, I had time to do another 100 REs, making it 500 REs total for today. So 6,000 REs on Black 2 and 12,700 REs on Platinum.

    Hm...It's been over a month since my last BQ shiny...And I still have another 3 to get whenever I get my next shiny...So if it keeps up like that, then that'll put me into...July...August...September...Oh no, October! BQ, I don't mean to rush you, but I'd like to have you finished by the time X/Y come out

    Good luck everyone!

    Hey guys,
    Congrats on all the new shinies, in particular Cyberra on Golurk (I know how annoying long hunts are) and RA on Yamask (A well deserved birthday shiny)

    Anyway, I've mostly been hunting for Treecko and I am at 4013 SR, and I'm expecting that to reach at least 20k given my luck with hunting..
    In other news, still at 5500RE for my Johto BQ

    Good luck everyone

    Forgot to do this before...

    Golurk
    Black 2
    random encounter
    Without shiny charm


    I hatched my first 100 Magikarp eggs. No shiny, but I wasn't really expecting to find one that early. It surprised me that when the pokemon were traded from my Japanese Black to Black 2 their stats and everything were translated to English. I'd expected them to stay in Japanese. After some more poking around I found a Cyndaquil in the Japanese version's PC, which I traded over and will use to try and breed a shiny. I also traded over Chamander and Totodile for that reason. Let the breeding begin...

    I continued my LG BQ the other day. Resumed from 9,700 RE's and was watching some DBZ.

    At 10,332 RE's I looked down and ran away from what I think was a shiny Seel. It had than tannish shiny color, but I'm not 100% that it was shiny or if it was the lighting. So I continued my hunt without restarting my count and am currently at 12,800 RE's now. Hopefully it doesnt take another 10k RE's for another shiny to apear.

    yeah um, given that I've gotten a shiny Seel myself, the one you encountered would've probably been a shiny. although it is definitely hard to tell.

    Congrats on your shiny Golurk! You worked for it, but I bet it's worth it, right?

    Speaking of earning shinies...YAY I GOT ANOTHER ONE!

    Yeah, but it's not Magikarp. It's a Shiny Swinub! I was dual gaming with my other Platinum game that I was playing through. I was running round in one of the sub-caves in Mt. Coronet when I turn and do an RE on the other Platinum, and I watch the shiny pop up on the screen! I haven't taken pictures, but I have the video here:

    Shiny Piggeh

    It didn't have the best nature or ability, but the shiny is lovely. Roll on Giratina at long last!

    Congrats on all of your recent shinies, particularly Golurk amongst others.

    As I promised, I will provide tidbits from my other shinies obtained in the last couple of months, starting with Cyndaquil!

    This is a reminder for those that are concerned!
    The votes for July's community hunt are ending tonight, wich means that I'm giving the results of the votes to Dangertrout tonight as well.
    If you haven't vote yet and you wish to, you still can do it. Any information about it can be found here!

    As for me, I'm still completing the National Pokédex, but I first want to finish the Unova Pokédex. And it's going very well, I reached the line of 300 different species caught in total! I only need few more species and the Unova Pokédex will be finally complete.

    320 different species obtained in total, 274 being in the Unova Pokédex.

    If you ever need any help in getting some of those missing Pokemon, I can help, if you need it down the line. Either way, good luck!

    So yeah, even with Animal Crossing, I've been spending some time hunting, and I'm now at 4000 RE's! Actually getting a decent amount of progress done, and I've gone to thinking about my next hunt. I may go for Dialga next in Platinum, but an MM for Lileep would be fun, if only to nickname it "rootinabox" for lulz. I doubt I'd keep the name, but I still am hoping for an MM soon after Challenger's Cave.

    Hey everyone! Congrats on all the recent shinies, especially Cyberra! You deserved that one!
    As for me, I finally got a 3DS, and it came with Black 2, so I've decided to try a badgequest on it. Since I already got a shiny Tepig and I'd rather MM for Snivy (so I get good IVs), I'm SRing for Oshawott. I haven't been SRing consistently because I also bought Mystery Dungeon Gate to Infinity, but I'm working on it! I am definitely taking a break from hatching for a shiny Zorua. Too many new games!! xD
    Anyway, good luck with all your hunts!

    GPX Trophy Pokémon:


    Newest In-game Shiny:

    MM, 5th egg


    Current Hunts:


    MM, 300 eggs hatched to date


    SRing since 6/24/13

    2-4 flawless stat for trade here

    Congrats Aqua on swinub! Great shiny. Good luck with Giratina.

    Just passed the odds for this hunt so now it's just a matter of sitting it out and being patient.

    Good luck everyone.

    Happy birthday RaichuArcanine and congrats on your Yamask!

    As for everyone else who has gotten shinies lately, congrats! (I just read through the past few pages and can't remember everyone)

    I wasn't going to hunt today (I was going to nap for a little while... pregnancies sure are exhausting, especially working during one), but reading all these shiny stories makes me want to work on my Latios(as) hunts right now. I have already done 480 SRs before today, so let's see how many I manage before I take a nap.

    Happy hunting everyone!!!

    Congratulations everyone on the latest shinies!
    The votes for the next community hunt are close, and the results have been send to Dangertrout. You'll discover your next challenge as July starts, so stay tunned!

    As for me, I finally completed the Unova Pokédex today, wich brings me to a total of 357 different species caught in the National Pokédex. I'm very pleased about the result, and receiving the Oval Charm will be just what I need for an upcoming breeding hunt. Thanks to you, gustavo 14, I got some Pokémon I couldn't have found without your help! But there's still a long way to go...
    I'll first be finishing my Black version main game so I can have access to any Pokémon I need. So before I start completing the National Dex, I'll be working on my Black team. I must defeat Alder, first, but it needs a lot of training.
    Good luck everyone!

    Can anyone recommend to me the best ways of getting a shiny. In 5 years of playing Pokémon, during which I have used any form of Repel no more than 10 times, I have never encountered a shiny Pokémon for my self.

    There's many ways of getting shinies, but the "best" way only depends on individual perspectives.
    If you're good at PokeRadar chaining, then try that. Just remember, once you reach a chain of 40, stop chaining and start resetting the radar until you see a shiny patch. It can get pretty frustrating at times though.

    However, if you just aren't the best at chaining (I'm one of those ), then you can try the Masuda method, or simply breeding a foreign ditto with a different language with another pokemon of a different foreign and language (like Japanese ditto with an English Miltank.) If you're planning to do this method in Gen. 5, then always use the Shiny Charm.

    There's also the Random Encounter method, where you simply run around in a specific area's grass and encounter random pokemon. You pretty much just run away from the ones that aren't shiny. You can use repels if you one specific shiny pokemon in a specific area too. Like the Masuda method, if you're going to do this in Gen. 5, use the Shiny Charm.


    Right now, I'm just figuring out if I should sell my nintendo wii (haven't played it in like.. two years), and it's just collecting dust. I was looking forward to buying a 3ds XL, since there's many new games that I've been looking forward to playing lately (Animal Crossing, Pokemon X and Y). With the amount of games I've got and good condition, I'm just looking forward to a price range of 100-150, if possible.

    As for shiny hunting, I'm MMing Trapinch, but knowing me, it'll take pretty long. What would happen is that I'd be MMing, then something random would come to my mind that I have to do, and I'd completely forget about the Trapinch hunt. Hopefully, I'll try not to get sidetracked too often and carry on with the hatching.

    Also, congratulations to everyone who've been getting all the shinies lately!

    Alright so I'm going back to Black 2 to celebrate getting more than half way through my White 2 BQ. My next hunt is Cobalion, to finish off the trio. I already did my test catch and it went well (I actually caught it), but it broke out of the one critical capture that I threw, which was my first ball, and synchronise didn't work. Hopefully those aren't omens for when I encounter the shiny!
    Anywho, good luck to all of you who are hunting, and I'll try to be as active as I used to be in this thread.

    Congrats to AquaRegisteel on Swinub, and maldoror on Bisharp!

    Hope that wasn't shiny, Master Leo =\ Sorry if it was!

    Another really slow night at work, so I was home by 9. I was able to do another 300 REs after work for a total of 900 REs today. 13,600 REs for Shinx and 6,900 REs for Growlithe.

    Good luck everyone!

    3811 as of right now on my Gastly hunt. Well, 3811 if you count the couple thousand I did on Route 216 of Sinnoh for a shiny Sneasel or Snover. But I got sick of doing that so now I'm waiting for a blue Gastly. Please shine. :c

    Hey guys! I only did 135 SRs for Latios/Latias yesterday, (Whomp) which got me up to 615 SRs for them each. I have already manage about 70 today and I don't really have any plans today, so hopefull I hit the 1000 mark (or get a shiny before then) today! I feel like I am taking this hunt super slow, but it is because I am working so much. :/ I am also taking this slower because I am not worried on trying to get it done as soon as possible like I did with the Eevee quest. That Eevee quest really burnt me out (to the point I needed a burn heal).

    Anyways, I am interested in seeing if my vote won for the hunt for July (which most people can guess which one I voted for based on my current hunt). I can't wait to see Latios and Latias shine!

    Happy hunting everyone!
