    If I were you I'd transfer that Chikorita to a Gen 5 cartridge, so you always can see him/her shine :-D

    Just did a total of 350 softresets in 2 hours time, I hope I will be having a shiny Johto starters before this community hunt ends. My goal is gonna be completing every community hunt.

    And if I complete a community hunt, I will go to regular hunting, with this kind of schedule:

    After every 1000 Random Encounters, I will be doing 100 eggs, after the eggs I will be doing 500 Soft resets.

    I do multiple hunts because I hate to do the same thing all over again.

    Well, ended up at 55 eggs total today for my Taillow hunt, but to be fair I've also been working on completing my unova dex so it's not like I'm lazy or something

    There's been a lot of new shinies since I last posted so congrats everyone.

    Man, reading this thread makes me scare to try to get that shiny duskull! although when I tried to breed a multiscale dragonite, I got a shiny dratini on the twenty-something egg, so I guess i could luck out. Same thing with a ralts XD

    O.M.G! I was walking around in the dark grass in the abundant shrine area as i was going around the hidden grottoes for pokemon when i enter a double battle and a shiny VULPIX comes across the screen! I KOed the golduck that appeared with it and captured it in a luxury ball. Wow so now i have a masuda method shiny Pidgey and a random encounter shiny Vulpix on my black 2 version.
    Shinies are good.

    Congrats on the shinies everyone. Once more, I failed to do a significant amount of hunting...100 REs, bringing me to 1000 total Eevee REs.

    Quick question though, does anyone know (or is it even possible to know) if leaving an area affects the odds of getting a shiny? Like if I want to head back to the pokemon center for a bit and then return? Or does it not have any effect?

    for shiny hunters, it doesn't make a difference what you do. it only matters when you're trying to abuse the RNG.

    I'm back, and have little news sadly. Though overall, shiny success is as great as always.

    7922 RE's in Chargestone Cave here, which isn't so bad until you consider that I'm using the shiny charm. Something better shine for both of us soon! And good luck to everyone else too!

    Wahhhh...So I get back to the pokemon center and the medal guy is there, which I found strange because despite not even having 50 medals yet, I pretty much stopped getting them...So I talk to him, and I'm more or less spamming "A" because I don't really care much about medals...But on the second and final medal he gives me, I saw:

    Pokerus Discoverer

    *cries*

    So here I get this thing rarer than a shiny, and it's already gone and wasted. At least I'm pretty sure - the Nurse didn't mention anything about it when I talked to her, though I didn't heal my pokemon. They also don't have any status about having caught it. And they have a little pink face next to all those shapes in their summary. So yeah...

    So the only pokemon in my party at the time who caught it were my fainted Watchog, who I care nothing at all about and begrudgingly use for her Illuminate ability, Vaporeon who I have no intention of training and picked him as my level 19 front-of-party pokemon because he looks alright and figured I might as well have an Eeveelution in front. Then my Umbreon who is already fully EV trained. Then Zekrom, who, while I think is cool, I never really planned on training him and have already battled with him (and don't care to have his EVs lowered or anything); Cobalion who has grown on me, but I'm definitely not going to train and use it for its False Swipe and Thunder Wave, and Psyduck, who is my Water HM helper (or "slave" for you negative nancies!).

    So yeah. 100% waste. Completely. Entirely. *cries some more* Couldn't I have just gotten my shiny Eevee instead ?

    Officially over the odds, stopped at 8,200. This is my third hunt in a row over the odds. I'm being punished for getting a shiny drifblim in 110

    At 3165 SR for Kyogre atm. Really hoping this isn't like Rayquaza where it took me over 9,000 SR... Wish you all luck.

    Awesome, I'm currently on 350, trying to get a 350 extra today. (I don't got much time.)

    Dang dude, when is the luck gonna be with you?




    I got a question, if I use a fainted magnamite with magnet pull as lead of my party, does the ability then still work?





    EDIT: Got 550 Softresets now on the Johto starters, I think I'll be doing a small ammount of 150 tonight and will go die hard tomorrow.

    After 1,124 SR's shiny Chikorita just shone on my heartgold! Little disappointed as I got Chikorita last time as well but it's nice to get something so soon! Think I'll move on now and get training! And OMG, it's female AGAIN! In really getting lucky with my Chikoritas haha. Nicknamed her Autumn :-) its the first time I've ever nicknamed a Pokemon too.

    It's been almost a year since I lost my black game and my Shiny Zebstrika that I evolved from a shiny Blitzle that I got at route 3 after around 2,500 encounters. So now I'm trying to reclaim it on my White game: at 5,000 encounters. Wish me luck!
