    As for those who just got shinies in the past few pages, congrats! Especially on the Charmander (you have been hunting that thing forever now!), Regirock (great shiny!) and the random Makuhita (don't know how to spell, but random shinies FTW!).

    As for me, let the icyness of the December hunt begin! Daycare man, give me them eggs!
    Is this thread a discussion thread about shinies or just a place for people to show off and be fawned over for catching a bunch of pixels? I was replying to what others were saying, trying to have a discussion. Better than people posting up a post with a few words in it like "Congrats. I did 5 REs today." Might as well call this thread " Your recently found shines" if we can't have a conversation about something related to shinies or shiny hunting.

    ^ I actually agree with that...

    Not sure what to hunt for the community hunt. I'm torn between RE'ing and hoping I find an ice shiny or just MM'ing and guaranteeing hitting the target. I'll start hunting after lunch so in that time I will have decided.

    So my target for the community hunt will be: Spheal. Got a Jap Walrein from GTS with flawless Sp.Attack, so for now I'm just trying to get another parent with a good nature. Only then will the MM start

    Good luck everyone

    I agree with you as well, that it should be all forms of discussion for shiny relatedness. Don't get me wrong, but Dangertrout made it a rule in the first post not to discuss the "value" of a certain shiny or shiny method because it can cause a huge debate war and could cause a huge argue war over this topic. That is why Dangertrout decided to keep this topic off of this thread. But this is for all other shiny related discussion, not just "I did 5 RE today". It happened in the other thread and it was nothing but a bunch of arguing for a few pages iirc.

    And just so you know, I wasn't trying to personally attack you or anything, I was just trying to make the rules known before this topic blew up and got out of hand like it did before. Sorry if you think I was personally attacking you or anything because that was not my intention. <3

    Thanks, I've credited you under the spoiler tag .

    Congrats on Chubchoo, TomoEGoto! Just a few hours before the community hunt started too XD but it's great it shone so quickly! Congrats on all the other new shinies as well, looks like Charmander shone just in time, haha.

    Well, I've started SRing for Kyurem now :3. Only done 20 SRs so far. I've got tons of balls ready and I'm mostly confident I can capture him alright after a few practices. If worse comes to worse though I have a Master Ball ready and waiting~ I'll do some more SRs for Groudon or Tepig later, but this is gonna be my main hunt for now! Aah, I'm really excited now, half for this hunt and half because it's almost Christmas XD.

    Happy December everyone, and good luck all! ^_^

    Ok, I don't really like doing these lecture style posts, because I'm not a tyrant, and I DO like to promote discussion, but being the thread owner I suppose I should address this issue.

    This is not a place to DEBATE the VALUE of shinies in any way, shape or form.
    This is supposed to be a place to discuss, hang out, have fun and encourage each other. I put the rule in because I don't want to see another flame war over why someone thinks certain shinies are worthless when others happen to love them. If everyone on the internet was mature enough to accept other people's views and not flame them for having opinions that are different, I would do things differently. Unfortunately, the internet is filled with people of all kinds, including ones who are not nice and will do exactly everything I wish to avoid here. That's why I made the rule. To avoid arguments over personal preference.
    So: *No discussion on the VALUE of shiny pokemon or methods that reduce the odds of obtaining a shiny.
    You want to discuss value? Go to the 5th gen shiny thread, there's no problem discussing it there.

    On the topic of the more spammy posts, I would prefer to see less of those. Having a page of "I still don't have a shiny" is kind of lame. But I leave those because I understand that when you get to a really long hunt you get frustrated and want some encouragement so you don't give up.

    /End lecture.

    Congrats to any shinies that appeared overnight, and good luck to everyone in their hunts =)

    Does this mean I can report successful RNG abuse here? I have been asked not to do so, because some people "don't like it".

    That's right, you can show off your RNG abused shinies if you wish.
    I would recommend the "Discuss my Pokemon" thread in the 5th gen forum over this thread for you though. I believe there are more RNG abusers there who would have a greater appreciation for your work.
    People who don't RNG abuse would look at them and say "that's nice", not really understanding the level of work you have to put into your flawless shinies.
    Again, up to you. Either one is fine, but I think that other thread is better when it comes to RNG abused shinies.

    This was discussed a week or so ago, but I think since it wasn't specified, Dangertrout has allowed non-ice types that evolve into ice types to count this time, as long as you state in your post that completed the community hunt.

    13088 RE's now in Chargestone Cave, and I'd rather that I don't surpass Shiny Lord's count, though I'm coming close. I'm going to go ahead and SR for Articuno while looking in Chargestone Cave. Since the December hunt starts, hopefully we'll see a lot of success again. Whether or not you're all hunting for an Ice type, good luck!

    That's right, provided you evolve your pokemon into the Ice type. If you don't want to evolve it, then please choose a different target that is already Ice type for the CH.

    Pretty sure that only works for the berry glitch. My Ruby long ago got the berry glitch fixed and its battery went dry recently. I still have half a box of bagon eggs sitting on it that I need to hatch when I have the time.

    My shiny luck really got drained, I already got 3,7k random encounters. I had 4 shiny's in under at 3,009 encounters. Tonight I'm going to pass my longest hunt. (I hope not.) So I'll do a extra 600 random encounters. wish me luck, Dylz out!

    Well I've been dual hunting like crazy and still nothing! I'm almost at 19,000 encounters in dreamyard... 19,000!! Making this my longest hunt in double grass. Day 21 for Mandibuzz and it still refuses to shine, I think this may be the unluckiest I've ever been but something must shine eventually! Must.. stay.. motivated. If I ever finish this hunt in the Dreamyard I'll start the Community Hunt by MM'ing a Ice type... I'm just not sure which at the moment but gratz on the recent shinies and good luck everyone!
