    Question: Does the method of getting shiny pokémon through breeding a foreign pokémon with a home-game apply to using Ditto with other pokémon? I have a Japanese Ditto and I've bred it with, well, everything XD Wondering if it works the same way or if there are conditions preventing this?

    I'm at about 3000 SRs for Cobalion right now. This hunt is one that I actually just want to get over with... I just hope Symchronize works when I get it. Good luck to all!

    Congrats to Tsisque on Nuzleaf and Trapinch, crashandcortex on Tepig (nice job getting all starters!), supersmew on Pikachu, City Of Delusion on Pikachu, and Scrufox86 on Latias!

    …*sigh*…-hits ‘play’ button-...”So I didn’t do as much hunting today as I’d planned…”

    Yeah, so I started hunting today, and 50 REs in, I just couldn't stand the table legs in the way. I wanted to put my legs in front of me and I couldn't with those stupid X shaped table legs. And one of my 3DSes was sliding on the table a little sometimes when I moved the circle pad.

    So I spent several hours trying to hopelessly find a small table with legs only on the side instead of crossing, as well as some of that rubber matting stuff like you put under a rug to keep it from sliding, so that I could keep my 3DS from sliding.

    And then once I finally found the matting stuff I needed, and after I couldn't find a single small table I wanted anywhere, I just decided to go back to Target and get the huge 34” square table. So now I have that and as large as it is, it is much more comfortable and much more spacious so I can have my laptop, mouse/mousepad, calculator, folder and paper, both 3DS XLs, and my webcame with plenty of room. And, my 3DSes don’t slide on it, so I’ll be returning both the first table I got and the rubber matting.

    And I got a response from Logitech CS to try to figure out why the webcam program is freezing so easily, so maybe I’ll be able to get that worked out too…And then I might FINALLY start doing more hunting!

    Anyways, I finished the other 50 REs for 100 total. And then mid-afternoon, my friend called asking if I wanted to hang out after work, since people were gonna go over around 8 or 9, and I ended up leaving work at 10. And I just got back at 2:30am which is late for me. So yeah. Didn't have a chance to hunt after work. So only 100 REs ;_; But now I've got my comfortable table/hunting space, just gotta get that webcam fixed and I'll be 100% ready to hunt!

    Good luck everyone!

    1,005 eggs hatched for magikarp; it's not shining yet. Hopefully it will soon... I really don't want to deal with another long hunt

    Oh yeah, Ash had a Tepig didn't he? So crash has also completed the CH and the set of starters! Awesome work, congrats.

    As for me, I'm still SRing Giratina. 800 SRs, good progress for me so far. 1,200 by the end of the weekend hopefully. Route 35 on HG is also running smoothly, but is at 6,400 REs. This may just want to go past 16,826 REs...but probably not. My reclaim of Magikarp isn't one if my main focuses right now, but when I capture Giratina I will hunt it more actively. However, there is that lake in Platinum that has nothing but high levelled Magikarp...
    On my recently completed Platinum, I should be starting a new hunt for something after Giratina shines. Heatran, Azelf, Palkia, Rotom...lots of options.

    Congrats to all of the recent shinies though. Good luck to everyone else!

    Hey guys! Today... I've got my first shiny ever.. that I've hunted for!

    http://i.imgur.com/1B85lzo.png

    The lil thing has a Timid nature (I actually wanted this )

    IVs: 23 - 28 / 0 - 9 / 0, 1, 2 / 11 - 23 / 28 / 10 - 24

    It has pretty good IVs (I think), but since I don't play competitively, it doesn't really matter much.

    I'm pretty excited now that this is the start to even more successful hunts (more motivation ). Although it didn't have the ability that I wanted, I'll still train it.

    Also, congratulations to everyone who got a shiny recently!

    Anyone can join. Just pick one of the pokemon on the hunt list, catch it as a shiny before the end of July, and when you do show us a picture and yell "hunt complete". I joined last month's hunt halfway through, though the bloody Golurk took so long to shine I just barely squeaked in

    I'm probably gonna have a break after I get my pokemon to level 30 in black 2. I wanna catch more shinies, and not a shiny magikarp from soul silver. Then again that thing is in pokemon white right now while I'm in a scramble run for soul silver training my pokemon.
    I was hoping for a shiny trapinch. Dunno what the odds of that. Five percent chance to find trapinch and 1 in 8000 and something of finding a s hiny. But I found 3 trapinch. 2 in a row and the other after another sandile. I'm gonna go to 50 RE encounters in lostlorn forest minimum. Then go somewhere else, battle the trainers so they get out my way then do about 100 RE min. The max I'll stop at in RE tomorrow is 500. Yeah it's a little short but I'm feeling lucky enough to see if it works. Wish me luck guys

    We like pictures to show off our catches. Not everyone shows one, though. Counting REs or SRs or eggs hatched is a matter of personal preference. I count to see how long my hunts go. Whether you want to is entirely up to you

    Just look up all shiny pokemon and decided which to go for.
    Despite my SR in HG, I am going to restart my hunt for sandshrew.

    Hi guys! I just started my Solosis hunt today!
    I just wanted to know, the Cute Charm problem doesn't affect the odds in a Generation V game, right ? I'm not using one actually but I see quite often female Solosis and Minccino while I would like the other gender. I don't think it affects it but I just want to be sure, I would really like to get a male Solosis.

    I dont think it does, I think it just affects the odds in gen IV if you had the right PID/SID.

    In other news, Im feeling very much like Dan2point5...... drained. No shiny caterpie in my last batch of eggs so Im up to 1500. Which doesn't seem so bad I know, but after the nearly 3000 to get blastoise, I thought my game would be nicer to me

    congrats to everyone on thrir recent shinies, especially those completing the CH (I hope to join you but with my stupid luck........)

    Stick with it, elorasheppard - you'll get one eventually!

    I'm up to exactly 1,000 eggs hatched for my latest MM hunt. 24 more and I'll be at the odds... Here's hoping we all get a little bit of luck this weekend.

    Keep at it, everyone. Remember that the pay off is worth the effort!

    Well, looks like Unova's caves hate me, since the last cave I hunted in ended with a long hunt. 8200 RE's, so I'm in for a longer hunt that Mewtwo. As I'm no fan of Woobat, I really hope that doesn't shine now, but even less exciting would be Excadrill, since I can find it in every other cave there is. I've also decided my next hunt will be either Taillow or Charmander by MM. The one I choose will largely depend on what shines here. Anyway, congrats on the recent shinies, and good luck to everyone!

    Update: I've been working on Pichus lately. Grab 5 eggs, hatch at Join Ave, fly to Virizion and check it, then reset.
    Last night (technically this morning) I encountered shiny Virizion ^_^ Relaxed nature and terrible IVs I use legends as trophies anyways, so no big deal.
    I'm SRing Terrakion now, to complete my trio

    Been transfering my HG pokemon to Platinum and White 2 so I can start a BQ... I'll probably get bored of SR for a shiny starter (it's really not that fun), so I'll probably only SR a couple dozen times, then just wander around the grass until I find something else shinning.

    Eevee still hasn't shown, so I have over 2 boxes of Eevees to show for it, gonna have to release some today, I'll pick the best stats for Eeveloutions and reserve them.

    Boy have i did something stupid......
    So... I traded a gothorita for a solosis with a Japanese OT. Its name was even in what i took to be japanese characters. So i bred it with my own solosis to try and get a shiny one. Two days and 300 + eggs later i decide to check my pokedex to makesure everything is good. And of course, no foreign entries. What a waste of time! But anyway, i got a new foreign parent and ive started hatching again. Gl to everyone and congrats on all the awesome shinies!
    Edit: @Aqua: Ah ok. Its just all pre gen five pokemon in gen five games have. I thought the ot was hacked or something. Thanks!

    Yes but try to remember to edit your posts, please!
    "*Rule #1: Keep the number of posts per page at a reasonable number. (Ideally, one post per page that you edit with additional comments)
    *Rule #2: Limit posts that are only progress updates to once per day (unless you got your shiny after your update)"

    My Charmander hunt is going longer than expected, up to over 600 eggs. I shouldn't be complaining since my last two where under 100 eggs xD although it was a long time ago since I last MMed.
    My HG SRs are moving steadily along, although not as fast as my SS BQ SRs. I'm at 825 SRs.
    My SS BQ hunt for Zubat is getting no where it seems! I'm at 35 hours of hunting, hoping it'll shine soon, but not so soon that I don't have a nickname for him/her!
    I only did 60 eggs today for charmander, usually do 120-180 eggs. I want to have enough time for my other hunts today.

    Good luck on everyone's hunts!

    I'm pretty sure they do because I got a Japanese charmander off GTS and after reading Paddy's post I went and checked myself on my White 2 and under charmander's sprite was a little boxed J and it showed me the Japanese entry for it...
