    Thanks for the congrats guys! Boldore is now a Gigalith. Pic:[IMG]http://i44.*******.com/x5qtqw.jpg[/IMG]. Currently I've gone back to my FR BQ and am back hunting for my first shiny, Charmander. I've done 5,162 resets for it so far and am hoping it doesn't have to go over the odds to shine. For some weird reason I've been seeing heaps of females too. Best of luck to everyone as always, will my luck continue?

    Just a note, next time either put up a smaller pic, or use a spoiler tag.

    People still have to load the pics anyway, but at least they don't have to scroll a lot.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    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 ^_^

    Very nice Gigalith... I love that color combination and look forward to trying for one myself. Am wondering about its name, though... Did you mean "Malachite" instead of "Machalite"?

    Hi guys! I've been shiny hunting on my dad's Black 2 version because he has the Shiny Charm. I found and caught a shiny Nuzleaf (now a Shiftry) yesterday at about five in the morning at the Nature Preserve. I tried to find two in a day, which almost happened; I found and caught a shiny Trapinch in Reversal Mountain earlier this morning. The Shiftry's name is Charmy because it was the first one I found with the Shiny Charm. The Trapinch is now a Flygon and his name is Mosaic.

    I'm SRing on my Heart Gold for a shiny Mewtwo. I'm up to about 300 SRs so far.

    Good luck! (: I love that your shiny Alakazam's name is Lucian, by the way. My Typhlosion on Heart Gold is also named Lucian.

    I'm currently looking around Pinwheel Forest for my next shiny.

    Finally got my HG game. Can I SR for starter by just looking at the photo in the choosing screen and turn of if it is not shiny?

    Yes, you can see if they're shiny from the selection screen Good luck. Which one are you hoping for?

    Still hunting for Latias. I would guesstimate that I've done over 5000 for her. I kept count up until 2000, then I took a hiatus from hunting. I keep looking at live Latias videos to keep me motivated. I'll be so happy when she scrolls across my screen golden

    yep, where you can scroll through all 3 starters to pick one, you can flick through and see if one of the three are shiny. That's whats good about it as it makes the odds 3/8192.

    EDIT: Ninja'd

    In other news 1200 eggs for caterpie and another 300 boxed up for hatching. Please be in there shiny!

    Well, after 4 and a half years of being in the shiny hunting community, 3 years of being a total noob and god knows how many SRs, I've completed my most taxing goal I've yet to set myself: Obtaining every single starter Pokemon in its shiny form. As a little reminder, this is a chronological record of all of my starters and how long each hunt took:

    Treecko: Around 800 SRs, December 19th 2008 (W/ 1 Uncatchable Poochyena)
    Charmander: Around 6200 SRs, September 2009
    Squirtle: Around 1500 SRs, October 2009
    Bulbasaur: Around 2000 SRs, October 2009
    Mudkip: Around 10,000 SRs, August 2010 (W/ 2 Uncatchable Poochyena)
    Torchic: Around 1800 SRs, August 2010 (W/ 1 Uncatchable Poochyena)
    Totodile #1: Around 4000 starters, September 2011
    Cyndaquil #1: Around 7000 starters, October 2011
    Cyndaquil #2: Around 4000 starters, October 2011
    Cyndaquil #3: Around 1500 starters, October 2011
    Totodile #2: Around 2000 starters, October 2011
    Chikorita: Around 13,000 starters, October 2011
    Oshawott: Around 13,850 SRs, February 2013
    Snivy: 50 SRs, February 2013
    Chimchar: Around 14,000 SRs, May 2013
    Turtwig: Around 3650 SRs, May 2013
    Piplup: Around 13,450 SRs, June 2013

    And finally, after around 9200 arduous SRs on my Black 2 version...

    HUGE congrats to everybody on their hunts irregardless of length, target or Pokemon. You all deserve all the congratulations you get for your efforts, as for me, I'm not so sure now to be honest! After a string of annoying long SR hunts going over the odds, I may just take a short break from shiny hunting to be honest!

    Wow major congratulations to crashandcortex for the amazing "all shiny starters!"

    I have update... I reached just under 2500 SR's now for Latias. I have spent the last few days (well not literally all day, about 3 hours each day) trying to find shiny Latias and I am getting bored. I think I may pause the hunt and go hatch some eggs. I WILL get my shiny Squirtle! It has been so long so you must shine for me now! And I will be back for you too Latias (and you Cresselia...).

    So I will begin hatching all my collected eggs and see if I find any shinies. It may take a few days to do this but I need something different than just soft resetting.. And as a lot of my target pokemon within those eggs are on this months CH I may hit two birds with one stone here.

    Congratulations and good luck to all with shiny hunts.
    Shinies are good.

    Massive congrats crashandcortex for finally getting that final starter. Gonna try use your success as a bit of motivation as I've pretty much been running on empty lately.

    I'm now at 11,600 SR's for Tepig and every reset is getting harder and harder to keep going. But keep going I will.

    Good luck folks.

    I'm so happy but so sad at the same time...

    Community Hunt Complete?

    I found a shiny Pikachu... While Playing Narajna, I checked youtube and all the Pikachus on there are normal. So I legitimately found a shiny Pikachu, that I can't migrate to Pokémon Diamond. Ugh. CURSE MY CRUEL LUCK!

    *silently cries*

    Pics:

    Cpost later

    EDIT: I can trade them to ruby and migrate them from there, yes!

    Gratz to RaichuArcanine on Boldore, Tsisque on Nuzleaf and Trapinch, supersmew on Pikachu, and a huge congratz to crashandcortex on obtaining all the shiny starters!

    I can't believe this, but..



    Community hunt complete x2!

    After only 2 days of REing, this shiny Pikachu appears! Even though its shiny form isn't really that much of a difference I somehow noticed right away it was shiny while it was crossing the screen. The nature is Mild, which is pretty good and I caught it on the first Premier Ball! I'm not sure what to hunt next though.. I'm in more of a REing mood and most of the targets I want for the CH are shinies I would rather MM but I'll think of something.

    Good luck everyone!

    Oh my..... FINALLY.... it is about time!!!! I have now captured shiny Latias! Since my last post not long ago I was going to do just another few SR's but then kept upping the amount I would stop at, well anyway I was just going to do ONE more and give up when she finally came across the screen all yellow with little green markings! I am so glad I kept going. I managed to capture her in my favourite pokeball variant... Luxury ball and the synchronizer worked as she is Modest!

    Wow wow wow I am so happy this has happened! I now have the Lati twins in shiny form and they are my first and second shiny legendaries EVER!

    Now if only Squirtle would co-operate and shine for me... I have been hunting this turtle for what seems like YEARS now to complete my shiny kanto trio.

    Congratulations to everyone else who got a shiny since my last post and good luck to all hunting!
    Shinies are good.

    I JUST GOT... THE SHINY CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARM!
    After around 2 weeks of hard working, I finally got the Shiny Charm, and just for the weekend too! I would like to thank everyone for their help; Laurelai, TheEliteEmpoleon (even if you two haven't done much, I appreciate the fact you wanted to help me out) but very specially gustavo 14! I couldn't do it without your help and it's all because of you that I got that charm! I owe you a lot, thanks!
    As for my first with shiny charm hunt, I decided to take Solosis on Route 5. Getting anything on that location wouldn't bother me at all!
    Good luck everyone and congratulations on the latest shinies!
