    Congratulations, Luneth! Seems like Kyogre is pretty popular in pink/purple.

    first of all congrats and on the kyogre and pachirisu, both are awesome shinies

    anyway i just thought i'd update you all on my hunt and then share the joys of maths aha
    so i got the 7,500 REs before getting the shiny charm and then just done another 750 with it (that equates to a total of 9750 shiny charmless encounters, so im over the odds already)
    and as for the maths i noticed somebody was asking about calculating the chance of them seeing a shiny yet or something like that, if any of you want to work out the chances for your individual hunts here's how (this gives you the decimal chance that no shiny has been found):

    (probability of normal pokemon)^(number of REs)

    example:
    hunting with no shiny charm in regular grass after 10,000 REs
    8191/8192^10,000 = 0.2950007
    this can obviously be converted to a percentage of 29.50007% chance of not seeing a shiny in these circumstances

    example 2:
    breeding with the masuda method after 758 eggs on white 2
    1364.3/1,365.3^758 = 0.5738468 = 57.38468% chance of not hatching a shiny yet

    as you can see this can be applied to any situation you're hunting in
    if you have any questions just ask

    Up to 2,000 REs in Relic Castle... Nothing yet. Two days off now (Sunday and Monday), so I can get in 2,000+ in those two days.
    Interesting fact: All three of my Badge Quest shinies so far have been found on a day off work...

    Found a shiny Grimer in the Fiery Path while looking for a Koffing, so that's the second random shiny found on this Sapphire file.

    Congratulations! Grimer is one of my hopeful hunts once I get the Shiny Charm, mostly because of EarthBound.

    As far as the Community Hunt goes, I got a Japanese Scrafty off the GTS a few hours ago and am going to use it to breed with a domestic Beartic. Will begin boxing eggs once the Scrafty knows Focus Punch. Good luck, everyone.

    I had finally remembered to go through Relic Passage and into Relic Castle to try and catch Volcarona after I killed it the first time. So, I go and it was shiny! So I use false swpie on it and I was about to catch it after it's turn was over but it used whirlwind and the battle ended. It was a sad time.

    I'm happy to see you guys are very supportive, but try to avoid having too many short posts like these. I don't want you guys to get infractions from the mods for too many "spammy" posts (which those sorts of posts fall under if you remember previous threads)
    Maybe add in your own progress, or save up the short messages so you only have one post per page. You could even just edit your post if you can't wait for the page to roll over. =)

    Oh yes, Kyurem! 1762 SR's, shiny! Nicknames?
    Might post pictures if I can tomorrow.

    What. The. Hell. I just had something happen I simply cannot believe. First off, I got my Shiny Kyurem after a mere 118 SRs, and the 99th today (I had done a couple before going on vacation). That was hard to believe in its own right, and Community Hunt Complete! Then something happened that I just don't know how. Full Health. No Status Condition. First freaking Ultra Ball. For about a minute I just kept shouting "NO WAY. NO FREAKING WAY." I just cannot believe that happened.

    Excuse me while I explode from the sheer awesomeness that is my new Shiny Kyurem.

    EDIT: Just checked its nature. Its Bold and has a Sturdy Body. I might post pics of it as its three formes at a later time.

    Lol, we got the same shiny for the community hunt! Congrats, and thanks for reminding me - Community Hunt Complete!

    It was Kyurem, I soft resetted it, 1762 SRs.

    I have a question about the MM method of shinies - does one of the parents have to be from another country, or another language?
    So for instance, if I bred an american ditto with an australia rapidash, are my chances of shiny higher than if I bred with two of my own pokemon? Because someone told me the language has to be different and I always thought it just had to be the country of origin...

    YES! FINALLY! I'm done with my Chargestone Cave hunt, with Joltik appearing at 14646 RE's, mostly with the shiny charm! I was using 3 DS'es, two in Chargestone Cave(Black and Black 2) and one SR'ing for Articuno in SS. In addition, my Quick Ball was a critical capture, so even more lucky, though I didn't need it to happen.

    Jolly nature, which sucks, but a "fantastic" Sp. Attack IV and Compoundeyes, so it's good enough for me. I had Joltik listed as my least wanted shiny here, but I'm a lot happier that Joltik showed up than if Nosepass or Drilbur appeared. Kurt, looks like mine shined first again. Good luck as you continue there, and now I wish you the best luck possible on your BQ, Shiny Lord! You really deserve it!

    As far as I know, the language does have to be different.

    Anyway, I've hatched about a hundred Swinubs so far. Hopefully I can get a faster hunt this time, I don't want to go over the odds again.

    Congratulations, gustavo! It always seems to be the way, though ... a shiny appears that isn't the one you're after specifically or you would prefer five other shinies before that particular one, and that particular one is the one to shine. Someone should do a "backwards hunt" ... as in, pretend to list them in the order you most want them, but not really. Maybe reverse logic will make the shiny you really want sparkle ... or not.

    Awesome! There's been a couple of completely random shinies lately. Such a great feeling, isn't it?

    Sorry to hear that, Pika. Was your Pokemon a lower level than the Volcarona? That's really bad luck. Are you going to try to get it back? Maybe MM for a Larvesta?

    Wow, Draknir! You've had a bit of luck lately. Nice one! And yeah, it's like you're getting three shinies for the price of one, aren't you?

    I'll just keep on plodding away here. Something will happen soon, I'm sure. It's those twin Minccino that cursed me, I reckon!

    Oh, by the way. I know this is kind of off topic, but it's to do with completing my dex. I need a Bulbasaur. Unfortunately my wifi is sketchy, and while I can occasionally deposit Pokes on the GTS, actually trading with someone is out. I do have a Fire Red game, but I don't really want to restart it, as I've pretty much gotten everything and have thousands of dollars and timer balls unlocked and so on and so on. However, if I must, I will just have to restart it and grab that pesky Bulbasaur. It's been a bit of an oversight on my part ... not keeping a Bulbasaur (who is the starter I have never ever used from Kanto) or a Spiritomb for that matter. Does anyone have any ideas? Are there trainers in Gen 5 that have a Bulbasaur to register in the dex at all? (Fat chance!) Thanks in advance.

    I don't think there are any trainers with a Bulbasaur... But I'd be happy to trade you a Bulbasaur/Spiritomb if you got your wi-fi working. I just completed my Black pokedex a few days ago, and got my cool new black trainer card. ^_^



    In shiny news: I'm at just over 6000 encounters for my next White 2 badge quest shiny, and 15,400 encounters for my next Heart Gold BQ shiny. Come on, one of you shine soon... u_u

    Good luck everyone. Congrats on new shinies.

    Yay! I caught a shiny tiny Tynamo in Chargestone Cave! I'll upload a picture as soon as I find out how this blue tooth stuff works.

    (Meanwhile hiding behind a tree just out of sight)

    Meowth: If we could bring that Tynamo to the boss you know what he'd say? He'd say "I'd like to thank meowth and friends for bringing me this shiny tiny tynamo. It's bright colours be a shining example to team rocket members everywhere".
