    I pm'd my idea. It has to do with Chinese new year. 2013 is the year of the snake, so we could all hunt for a snake(ish) pokemon.

    This made me laugh. "What, Helio wants more shiny Rattata?!"

    I looked into the Chinese New Year, because it's not always in January. Sure enough, this year it will fall in February (the 10th). I'll save that idea for the February vote =)

    edit - @Dylz, that's what happens when you have some consecutive short hunts. then you hit a really long one >.< good luck on route 7! lots of nice shinies in there, which is why I started hunting in that area this week

    After I reach the 6.5k I will be hunting on a other route. I simply can't stand the fact that this hunt is taking so long, and even got the chance to get a shiny I already have.

    I will continue my hunt at the virbank complex, not aiming for a ice shiny now. After I finish finding a shiny at the Virbank complex, I will continue my hunt on the almighty Shiny Metang and I prolly will find a Piloswine inbetween.

    Hey guys, im not here to post about a shiny shroomish, i too have a proposal to make about January's community hunt.
    Since January is the beginning of the year, we should go back to 'the beginning' of pokemon i.e. Generation 1. We could compile a list of ten favourites or something by votes, and those pokemon be hunted. Gl to all and of course congrats as well, could have a shiny to report soon...(please!!!)
    My Shiny Pokemon:

    5th Gen:
    ;Emolga; ;Solosis;

    6th Gen:
    Greninja ;Volcarona; (X2) Aegislash ;Lampent; Diggersby

    It's not a bad idea, but a little too much work. Someone would have to put together the list, then put to vote, tally the vote, then finally put it on the list for the final vote. if it doesn't get chosen it would be work for nothing.
    Not to mention, it would clutter up the thread like mad. I say "PM me" and half the people ignore that and just post in the thread. >.<
    If that behavior continues, I'm going to have to stop putting things to a vote every month and just dictate what the CH will be. Less fun, but at least we'll stop having a couple pages go by with no shiny news.

    As of yesterday my Community Hunt has started! Going after Regice and I have done about 100 SR's so far. This hunt might take a little bit longer because the shiny and normal sprites are so close and I have to wait and see if there is a sparkle before I SR. I am planning on SR'ing all day today, so maybe ill get lucky and get this thing faster than my last hunt Regirock. Keep up the great work everyone and dont give up ^.^

    Hah. I put a Magnemite up on the GTS earlier in White 2, asking for any kind of Venipede... and the one I received was shiny. O.o

    I wonder if it's a legit one... It's Japanese, female, Lonely natured, and apparently met in the lostlorn forest at lv21. Oh well, I might as well keep it for now. I'm not interested in traded shinies though. ^^;

    I've moved over to route 5 in my badge quest, instead of route 16 (since they have exactly the same Pokemon in both routes anyway). I'm now at just under 600 encounters.

    For the record I'd have a little faith and say it is legit. =D

    I have a quick question if that's okay!

    I'm currently breeding via MM for a shiny Charmander like so many other people have before, and I just got a Japanese Charmander on the GTS. I was thinking of evolving him to Charizard, not for any real reason but just for the fun of breeding 2 Charizards rather than a Charmander and Charizard, however I noticed when he evolved his name switched to English.
    It's not a huge deal him having an English name and I'm thinking of just breeding 2 Charmanders now anyways, but for future reference, if a foreign Pokémon, Japanese for example, evolves in and English game and it's name changes to English, does it still work for Masuda breeding?

    I would assume so since it was still hatched Japanese and has a Japanese OT, but it's better to be safe than sorry. I tried googling it and there was a lot of hesistation over whether it would still count, so I came here hoping someone with a bit of shiny knowledge might know :P

    Anyways, while I'm here, may as well announce I plan to take part in the CH when I get my round charm HOPEFULLY this week, just need that darn Landorus from my Dream Radar! I'm thinking of either Spheal, Cubchoo or Snover, but Pokécommunity also have a December shiny quest where green shines count and I've always wanted shiny Azurill. So I might alternate between MMing an ice type and either RE at Floccesy Ranch or MMing Azurill. We'll see! :3

    Your Japanese Charmander will still work for MMing after it evolves, even if the name changes. When a pokemon is created, it is assigned a country code which is determined by the game you are playing. That code never changes =)

    Haha bless ya buddy. I was actually really lucky I didn't KO it because I wasn't really paying attention to what I was doing (basically training for EXP before getting battered by Cheren) and now he's one of my greatest buddies.

    I'm not going to lie this Pokemon Ranch thing is -_- REALLY LONG. I need to send 999 Pokemon to the Ranch which is really helpful for RE's but still...if I'm going to get a Blue Mew I'll need to wait just a while longer.

    Speaking of which that reminds me my latest shiny encounter! Yamask in the desert ruins I was tempted to evolve it but then I put it on the GTS because I want my snivy.

    I don't think Hayley's pokemon can be shiny. I've definitely never heard of her Mew shining for anyone.
    The only legit shiny mew I can think of is from 3rd Gen (was it Emerald?), using an item from an event to get to a secret location where you can SR it.

    Wait a second you're right. I checked the shiny section of Bulbapedia and it said that none of her Pokemon besides Mew and Phione can be shiny but they have a set trainer ID of 01000 which means it's not checked against my trainer ID but has already been determined. Thanks DangerTrout you just saved me alot of wasted time.

    -_- It looks like my dreams of a shiny Mew and Celebi will have wait a while longer.

    I am going well with my MM hunt, about 200 something eggs have been hatched, hopefully my MM target will shine and I can try for another before Christmas.
    If only my Ursa Minor didn't hatch so soon, it would have saved me some dedicated time, but I suppose I should be grateful it hatched so early as it did.

    Sounds like its going well Tomo and blue, keep at it!

    Quick question: what's the deal with the whole "complete the national dex to get the shiny charm
    how do you get a hold of a mew?? Or a celebii? In black 2 for example with no other games,

    Am I missing something?

    You can get them by trading with people, but they are not required.
    Anything that was available for a limited time only through events (like Mew and Celebi) are not needed to get the Round or Shining Charms

    No don't! I know you'll find it, really. You're way above the odds and this will be your 5th shiny! Don't give up now! Plus, it's a high chance to get a shiny (repeat for you) at da' forset!

    ~Not participating in this month's hunt, I am not so committed on this one, kind of bored, probably take a break w/ competitive battling/training. May start up again, just haven't got so deep in.

    Also, is this not creepy? >

    I'm glad they didn't make them as a requirement. Considering it would be difficult to find the events you need when they can't be traded on GTS and or have obscene trade requirements.

    Which is good considering I missed out on Keldo... I know at some point they'll have it as a Wi-fi event for those who didn't get it when it was around at GS.
    They're good about that, if not then I hope to find someone who will be willing to trade me one in exchange for something equal.

    And if they ever get around to making and releasing R/S remake I hope they bring back the old events that GBA had. Especially the Old Sea Map (so we can SR shiny Mew).
