    The real scary thing is that I can imagine him saying all of that...

    Anyways, as really chaotic as this thread may already be with the CH, I had an idea.

    I have begun a habit of reading the whole 526 pages of the old Shiny Pokemon Club...and wondered if some of us could do something like a shiny tour of a region? I thought I could make it a little different by just hunting different targets in a region for half of 2013 or something. I know that Helio and Zane were around when Shiny Tours were going on in the club (reading through the pages), so you could elaborate on what the exact rules were...

    But if it's too much of a hassle, I would love to do my own personal shiny tour of a region.

    Meanwhile, hypothetic theoretics aside, I am at 4,408 SRs with nothing to show for. Hmm...this is dragging on...

    Hahaha. Actually that might not be a bad idea. Certainly would add a little bit more to the magic of shinies.

    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.
    Thanks, Helio, it's the thought that counts. And good luck with your hunts.

    It's strange, does anyone have vast knowledge about wifi and so on? See, I have tried so many different things to get it to work. I have connected my PS3 up no worries ... it's wireless and it works fine. Even my 360 works, too. I know it's kind of different, but yeah. The 3DS seems fine, and I was using the DSi XL to surf the web the other night, just to see if it cut out or anything ... and it didn't! The only issues I have seem to be with Pokemon, the one thing I'd love to be able to use without a hitch above all the other stuff.

    I can use Mystery Gift, I can occasionally get Pokemon from the GTS, and also use Global Link, but I can't trade. It cuts out after a certain amount of time, and I get all different sorts of errors. Some even seem contradictory, so I get even more confused. Not sure what I can do anymore.

    It's a satellite connection, and it has a firewall on the modem, so I'm wondering if any of those are a factor? Unfortunately satellite is the only option where I live at the moment.

    As for the Shiny Tour, I'll try my best to explain. There were a certain amount of legs to the tour, like, say, five, and you were usually allowed to tackle them in any order, but sometimes there were additional rules. Legs were things such as hatching a certain type of shiny, SRing for a specific set of legends, or just fishing. They were all either pretty specific or very broad and I guess that helped make it interesting.

    I think it sounds like a good idea, for sure! I remember that whenever it was announced there was a Shiny Tour, I'd always want to join, but I'd always be busy trying to hatch or catch some other hunt, and I'd usually either miss out or not sign up just for fear of not being able to commit to it.

    However, it seems that a lot of people are doing the community hunts, so a tour seems like a nice step forward in the right direction to keep people motivated. Maybe we should look for any suggestions from people. Like, say, specific hunts, like hatch a bug type shiny, or fish in ripples on route 2299 or whatever. Maybe we can get some good ideas rolling.

    Also, congratulations on that Tynamo, gamer_legend!

    I think that works well. I also realised just that this would allow this to be an incarnation of the Shiny Pokemon Club, but there wouldn't be as much spam here. If you think about it, maybe we won't require another installment of the club elsewhere...

    Hopefully, I will start uploading the Makuhita pictures today...

    Technically, it's the country code of the pokemon that matters. Going with different languages is safer though. Also, you have to keep in mind that country code is based on the release, not the actual country you bought it in.
    Canada + USA are different countries, but they have the same release (North American) of the game. Same goes for UK and Australia, who got the European release.
    As for the Reshiram, it does have a shiny lock. The video you saw probably was of someone who removed the lock with an AR so that they could SR it.

    I'm not opposed to the Shiny Tour, but I'm hesitant to make this too much like the old Shiny Hunters Club. There is one mod in particular who was dead set against allowing it to be recreated in the clubs section, and I wouldn't want to make it look like we were trying to get around that by just making it somewhere else. And I wouldn't want this thread shut down because they felt like we were going behind their backs.

    I would suggest we continue on the way we are now with the CHs for a bit, maybe try to clean up our acts with the excessive posts and then petition to re-open the Shiny Hunters Club. I know the main issues she had with the old club was the amount of posts that were just congrats or hunt updates, so that's where we'd have to improve if we want to have it reopened.

    150 MMs done for the community hunt now.

    Anyway, I was wondering, is it possible to SR for shininess with event Pokemon given by the guy in the Pokemon Center?

    Unfortunately, no. With events that you collect from the delivery man, the shininess is already set.

    Hey guys. Im starting to get frustrated, Im at 1350 eggs hatched now for my Shroomish hunt. Another box and I'll be over the odds, I'm about 200 eggs away from my longest mm too so it's not looking good. I have a feeling its coming soon though. Oh congrats on the recent shinies, off the top of my head there were a couple of kyurems, and Aquas makuhita and gustavos joltik. Good luck to all.

    And on the topic of re-establishing a shiny hunters club type thing, I have to agree with Dangertrout. If we went ahead and made this thread into something like that, the mods would be unhappy, the thread would be shut and lots of us would be infracted.
    Even if we did get permission, the rules would be that strict nobody would enjoy it. Not saying it's a terrible idea, it would many consequences.
    My Shiny Pokemon:

    Not sure how many Random encounters I got now, but I'm pretty sure I passed the odds twice now at the Giant Chasm Cave. I really want to finish this goddarn community hunt. My longest hunt now. :-(

    Hey there, Cocoa! Lol, how did your SS bq go? Wasn't around to see the finished result, unfortunately.

    Going to start MMing a few grass types. Mainly Treeko, Turtwig, and Bulbasaur, for competetive hopefully.

    A slightly different sort of shiny post, and this seems the thread for it, even though it's a different sort of post. I just feel a desire to talk up my shiny collection, and nobody else is interested.

    All of these are natural, pure luck finds. I SR for good pokemon, but I'm mostly looking for nature and stats and sometimes ability - shiny is always in the back of my mind, but not my goal (I don't think I have that kind of patience - I barely have the patience to find a pokemon with a beneficial nature and at least not bad stats). So:

    Zubat - this was the first shiny I ever encountered, in the first Pokemon game I played, Leaf Green. It's also the only shiny I've kept in a party and evolved. It's decent - not great nature or stats, but not bad either. I was disappointed in the Crobat sprite though, which is probably part of the reason I've never evolved any of the others.

    Doduo - caught this one in the fenced-in bit near the bottom of the downhill route in Fire Red. Mediocre stats and kind of an ugly sprite, went straight into a box.

    Tentacool - caught this one while EV training in Fire Red. Nice looking shiny, and one I'm really tempted to evolve, since the Tentacruel sprite is pretty cool too. Stats and nature are terrible though.

    Electrike - caught in the grass in Sapphire. Awesome sprite - absolutely terrible stats. Seriously - I really wanted to use this one, but it's something like Gentle nature and with all the IVs in single digits - not just sort of mediocre stats but like the absolute worst possible - so into the box it went.

    Geodude - in Ruby. I was thrilled with this one, since it was actually the second shiny Geodude I've seen - the first one, years ago in I-don't-remember-which game, yes indeed, blew himself up. So when this one first came up, I just put the game down and thought about it a bit. I had a bulky attacker in the lead of the party and depending on the move he either would've OHKOed it or done almost nothing to it, and I didn't have any Quick Balls yet. I did have a Roselia with Grasswhistle and some Great Balls though. But Grasswhistle is only 55%, and... that was about my only option though. So I finally just crossed my fingers (literally) and switched in Roselia. And the Geodude used Rollout. I knew right then that he was mine, but it did take two tries before the Grasswhistle hit, so it was still a bit tense. One of my favorite shinies for sure.

    Numel - caught in Emerald. This one is actually quite good and I was sort of tempted to use it, but I had already figured out how to breed a Numel with Earthquake, Rock Slide and Flamethrower as egg moves, and the shiny Numel sprite is IMO better than the shiny Camerupt, so into the box.

    Electrode - caught in the same Emerald, within days of Numel. Awesome sprite, can't stand Electrode, so into the box.

    Zubat - and I caught a second shiny Zubat, and this one's going to stay as a Zubat. It was in Pearl, in the mine, early in the game. I don't think I even looked at its stats - it was just Zubat - shiny - box.

    That Zubat is the only shiny I ever caught in the fourth gen (though I didn't put in anywhere near as many hours on those games as on the third gen, which is probably a good part of the reason), and I've yet to catch any in the fifth (though I've only played White so far, and that only most of the way through - currently at seven badges and grinding a team for Iris's dragons). But hopefully I'll be back sometime with some more shinies. And who knows - I might even someday work up the patience to actually hunt for them...

    I was thinking the same thing. Except one of my future RE hunts ( not in the near future) will be Baltoy in Relic Castle, which is the only thing found within the room he appears. Though that does give me an idea on my next one in Route 207.

    Thanks, and I see you're hunting Articuno as well, though you're way ahead of me, I'm sure. I haven't done much SR'ing for my Articuno, and I'm busy doing Funfest Mission to get a Black trainer card, so you'll get farther ahead of me. Either way, good luck to you! And good luck to everyone else as well, especially Shiny Lord!

    For the community hunt, I decided I'd hunt for a shiny Sneasel! Currently hatching eggs to get a Jolly or Adamant nature to MM with. Hope this hunt is relatively short! Always wanted a shiny Weavile so this community hunt is a great excuse to finally start up on this hunt.

    Hey Gustavo congrats on that shiny! I gave up the chargestone hunt which is not like me to quit anything but I really wanted to get started on community hunt and I've hatched 300 eggs so far and nothing yet. I'm not going to say yet what it is I'm hunting for though to surprise everyone when I get it!

    That really stinks City. I hope it shines for you soon and good luck to everyone else. For the community hunt I've decided to MM Lapras. I think I may regret this decision seeing as it takes so flipping long to hatch.

    Quick question... is it possible for the Mystery egg in Soul Silver to be shiny? and if I were to SR for it I would save before receiving it, right?

    Hey guys! I'm back after being gone for over a year. I unfortunately had to sell my DS and 6 pokemon games when I needed to move. I recently bought a 3DS and Pokemon X and will hopefully eventually get my old games again. I lost all my shinies and events but I'm going to start shiny hunting again soon.


    I don't have anything too special to trade at the moment. I do have all the starters and pokerus though and of course pokemon X exclusives.
    Dex fillers I currently need:

    The Egg's personality values and stats are assigned as soon as you collect at the pokemart but yes it can be shiny.

    Something I noticed recently that I meant to mention: Join Avenue has a nifty feature for those who like to count eggs hatched. The scientist in the office of the avenue has an option to tell you various records. Among them is "number of eggs hatched", which I find to be very handy. I'm not sure what level of avenue you need for this option to appear, but I think it's available early on.
    Now I just jot down what my record is after every MM hunt. Just passed 650 eggs since my last shiny, hopefully I'll get my Smoochum soon =)
