    Well, I agree with Option 1. Despite the fact I suggested a circuit, your reasons are logical. And CHs are really drawing in a lot of people. It's all good for me to hunt on my own mini-circuit anyways, as an MM hunt is impossible for me on 4th Gen (points to wi-fi).

    Meanwhile, I have hit 4,615 SRs and 2,720 REs...man, Lugia wishes to shine next year, I reckon...

    Also, sorry on the silly shiny Sandshrew, Helio! What hunt tickles your fancy?
    Good luck to gustavo, also a HUGE good luck to Shiny Lord and Cocoa on the hunts.

    I must also mention that the shiny Makuhita makes me want to hit my "shiny frame" due to the RNG loop...is it possible to hit the frame again, or am I wrong?

    And finally, I watched a video of this french person get a shiny Cresselia in Platinum which was linked in the SHC ages ago. I now really want to get one through Platinum, despite the long SRs, because I think it would make it a great reward! Anyone got Cresselia through Sinnoh?

    Option 1. We can track things like BQ's and MMs and SRs and bla bla bla in our sigs, or just a regular post, but upon finishing the community hunt, u get a sense of reward...
    its that showoff feeling u get in few other places. (actually a ton of places, just, this is one of them)

    Option 1 for sure, and the: "Still no shiny posts" I agree with, but note that this thread has its own little community that like to keep track of each others hunt. Or is it just me?

    People just need to put: "CM hunt completed!" above of their posts, that makes everything a lot easier.

    I'll be honest I choose option 1 because I like dangertrout + I've got a feeling that if we go with option 2 it'll fade out pretty quickly and turn to nothing and that would be a massive shame considering how great a job this thread has done of uniting everyone in the forums.

    Yeah but my luck disappeared, since I'm currently on 5,8k random encounters and 500 soft resets without any shiny.

    Thanks. These multiple shinies annoy me... >.> I've decided to hunt in route 16 for my next White 2 BQ shiny. I'll be happy with anything, since I need every shiny there, but I'd like a shiny Solosis most of all. I'm currently at 152 encounters.

    Yes, it is possible to hit the same shiny frame again. But if you were playing for, say, an hour (without switching off/resetting the game) before the shiny Makuhita appeared, then you'd have to leave your game on for an hour to try and hit that particular shiny frame. That's why early shiny frame are best if you're trying to take advantage of the RNG.

    I found a shiny Cresselia in Pearl after 6854 soft resets on the 13th June 2010 (it appeared just as I'd sat down to watch a world cup match, lol). I also found a shiny Mesprit in Diamond after 5207 soft resets on the 17th August 2011. I have videos of both of them up on my youtube channel. ^_^

    Good luck everyone.

    Question about shiny PIDs - Are they always the same regardless of resetting the game? So if all 8 shiny PIDs give male pokemon, you can only encounter male (and genderless) shinies?

    4,500 encounters now... that's a whopping 1,300 encounters today!

    You're 100% on the spot there. Since community hunts, I've noticed even a few forum lurkers have come in shiny hunting, so I'm greatly in favor of keeping the same formula of CH's. It's always nice to see more people come into the shiny hunting community, and I know I'm nowhere near the first myself.

    And as I've been rather spontaneous with my hunting choices, I've changed my approach once more. Since I loved being able to take advantage of having 3 available DS'es for hunts when Joltik appeared, I'm going to try hunting three things at once: my current CH Articuno, the start of my Platinum BQ, and contrary to my last comment about it, I'll be starting for Baltoy in Relic Castle. Thankfully, I can rely on the Trainer Card to count Baltoy, I've already forgone counting for Articuno, and I have a calculator for Route 207, so hopefully I can manage all three at once. Good luck on those hunts everyone, especially those nasty long ones!

    Well, it is something that detrmines a pokemon's IVs / shininess and such. Say you had a shiny frame of 12:26:52 PM with a Docile Nature and 3/24/8/18/9/30 IVs, encountering a pokemon at the exact time would create the aforementioned pokemon as a shiny, IIRC.

    Yeah, I understand that. I was just thinking if there were 5 hunts to keep track of, I'd have to skim through pages and pages of posts, look for the ones that had the completion note, then separate those into the different hunts in the first post.
    then I thought, what if one pokemon matches 2 or 3 of the hunts? do I mark it in all the lists or ask the person to choose which list they get put on?
    then, if we have 5 different hunts, and some people choose to multihunt, will they have the discipline to update all hunts in one post? or would there be 5x the amount of "update! i have no shinies for this hunt yet" >.<

    Personally, I really prefer the CHs we're doing already. Everyone working on the same hunt just makes it more fun. I think having multiple targets would detract from that experience unless everyone started multihunting, which not everyone can do.

    Speaking of multihunting, I've started rotating my own hunts a little.
    now I'm collecting a box of smoochum eggs, SRing mesprit for an hour, REing on route 7 for an hour, training in my Nuzlocke for an hour, rinse and repeat.
    Not getting much done in pokemon right now though, as I have to get this book report done this week. or suffer lower grades for handing it in late >.<

    Helio, next shiny hunt, do what I said earlier! Keep saying you want your least wanted shiny the most, and maybe the game might spit out the shiny you really want. Hey, it's reverse psychology, right? ... It might work ... maybe. Anyway, good luck.

    Dangertrout, sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. I just thought people were keen on a shiny tour, so I was just joining the discussion. Considering I haven't even done a CH yet, I don't really think I am in a position to weigh in much, anyway. I intend to, but I always seem to have some other hunt on the go at the time. It seems like it's all going well as it is, though, so no need to really change things.

    I didn't mean to snap at you, it just happened to be the first thing I read after a bad morning (coffee everywhere, burnt toast, it was horrible T_T)

    While we're on the subject of community hunts, feel free to PM me ideas for January's vote. I'm trying to think of hunts that fit for January, but aren't winter themed.

    I have just performed the first SR in my Moltres hunt. I will be dual-hunting it alongside the Cubchoo I'm MMing for this month's Community Hunt. I hope Moltres will be kind to me in this effort, as I've historically had little patience for soft resetting. Good luck, and congratulations to all new shinies.

    I'm awake, currently on 5.8k random encounters. Let's try and get to atleast 6,500 encounters!


    + I just send my January CH idea to Dangertrout.

    My best idea:

    Random encounters hunts in a route chosen by Dangertrout.
    Every cartridge got their own route to hunt on.

    How about a 'new year/new beginning' theme - by hunting for a shiny on the first route of any game? The first route of a game is the start of a new adventure; just like January is the start of a new year.


    I'm going to be doing some more hunting for my next badge quest shinies in both White 2/Heart Gold today. I was double hunting in both yesterday evening when shiny Sandshrew appeared.

    I'd only done 18 encounters (I do 100 at a time in HG) in HG when shiny Sandshrew appeared, bringing me up to 15,918 encounters in total. My last HG badge quest shiny took 15,906 SR (a shiny Lapras), so this is now the longest hunt of my badge quest...

    That's an awesome idea Dylan. Just to carry on with that idea how about every day of the hunt the only pokemon you can catch are the ones on routes that correspond to the day and if there aren't enough routes in the game you just reset the counter at the last route and if your playing say...ruby? we'd of course start with route 101, route 102, route 103...this sounded alot better in my head.

    Good luck on your hunt mate. And Dangertrout Tea > Coffee good luck with the book report.
