    Hey guys. I managed 845 SRs today, bringing my Kyogre total to 9,110 SRs. This hunt is starting to get very tiresome, but I watched some shiny Kyogre hunts on YouTube today to make me more motivated. I sure hope to get this thing soon. It looks like I will soon be in a 5 digit number hunt... Well good luck everyone and happy hunting! Good night!

    Wow! Forget what I said earlier. Not even a full box into my huge batch of eggs, Wooper appeared at 335 eggs! Wooper.JPG
    This is totally unexpected, even though I already had 310 eggs hatched in Black. Female, Jolly nature and Damp, which isn't really great on Wooper, but at least I've avenged the loss of the first shiny I've ever encountered. My first MM hunt too, so I impressed, though I can say my luck has more than balanced itself out from that nasty Rayquaza hunt. That could be that last of my good luck for the year, though, but that's okay with me. Now I have to hatch over 300 more eggs to clean out my boxes. Good luck on those hunts, everyone!

    That's great, congrats!

    I've done my 15 Eevee encounters for the day...Which brings me to a total of 450 REs in the last 9 days This could be a long hunt...Hopefully things will pick up once I get a lot of this school work out of the way next week! On that note...Minimal progress on my paper, but I'm at least at the point of typing it. Will I squeeze 5 pages out of the pathetic amount of info I have? Stay tuned to find out!

    I feel like I spend a lot of time working on this paper. But then I realize most of that time has been spent distracted. Then I realize all that distracted time could have just as well been shiny hunting time instead and it's disappointing =\


    Now a question for everyone...When you find a shiny, do you opt to evolve it? Do you have any restrictions you set yourself, like not evolving your shiny unless you get a second shiny of it? Or do you not care at all and you just do whatever you feel like with it?

    I feel like for the most part, I'll keep any shinies I find randomly as they are. So my Litwick will stay a Litwick...Which is fine, since I don't like Chandelure, and the shiny form of Chandelure is pretty lame IMO. However, while I'd ideally like to keep any shiny I find as it is until I get a second, it just doesn't seem very feasible for something like getting a shiny Umbreon which I want most right now, as it would require 2 shiny Eevees...Unless I have a really quick hunt, it's out of the question to try to get a second =\

    Holy, I'm also doing my first MM. I'm at 400 Eggs.

    But atm now doing Random Encounters, got 4k atm and going for 5k!


    EDIT:

    Holy crap! My first every RE hunted shiny just showed up!

    A Piloswine at 4,330 Random Encounters! It has naive nature, not it's best nature. But 31 IV at special defence.

    I'm so happy right now, I'm now going to look for a new route to hunt on.

    Congrats on Wooper and Piloswine.

    I've reached a total of 2500 RE's in Virbank Complex for a second shiny there, no idea when something will shine. Needless to say my luck has been drained after getting Kyurem and Magby a couple of nights ago, not complaing though.

    I'm gonna do at least another 200 RE's before bed. Good luck everybody

    Also SRing for Shiny Latios and no luck so far v.v I am at around 3500 SR. I'll try to get in another 500 today but that may be too much since I have a busy day ahead of me.

    I'm on my second ever MM hunt and decided to go for Ponyta because it has one of my favorite shiny sprites. 155 eggs hatched so far. I'm hoping it doesn't take as long as my Zorua hunt (1070 eggs) . Good luck/Congrats to everyone.

    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 pokemon X exclusives.

    If it makes all of you feel better, through thousands of hours (i'd guess 1400 ~ 1500 hours spent through Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond, Platinum, SoulSilver, Black and Black 2), I've NEVER encountered a shiny I could call my own!
    I had a shiny salamence through GTS which I traded for a hariyama (WHYYYYYYYYYYY!?!?) and have a shiny gyarados (but who doesn't have one by now?)
    Best of luck to everyone!

    Managed a measly 75 SRs on Lugia, but my total stands at 1,250 SRs. 2,000 by the weekend's end? Possibly, I'd need about 250 per day, starting from tomorrow.

    How do some of you do 500 SRs on BW2 in one day? How many hours does it take to do so many?

    It depends on the shiny. I bred my first Rufflet to stay unevolved, same with my Zorua, Archen and Tepig. In the case of my Ponyta, I evolved a chained one to register in my shiny Dex on my White and left my RE one alone because I think shiny Ponyta is a lot nicer. On the other hand, I evolved quite a few of my shinies once they were in White to get the shinies registered even though they were all untouched before, regardless of which shiny I liked the most.

    Haven't been doing any shiny hunting since getting Kyurem. I've EV trained Kyurem, Cresselia, Regice and the Nature Preserve Haxorus and after jumping between routes I'm now level grinding them all on Route 18. There are some pretty shinies available on this route so I've got my fingers crossed!

    Congrats on new shinies and good luck everyone.

    I probably average around 100 SRs an hour, depending on which game I'm playing. Gen 5 games take longer because of all the crap you have to sit through; launching or not launching cgear every time and then the season announcement, in case I forgot in the last minute : / really wish there were options to turn some features off.

    I am currently MMing a (hopefully) female charmander in W2. not counting eggs or anything. just collect / hatch / release until something sparkles. hoping for a very quick hunt, because i had a very, very bad week and it's finally hitting me

    Latios hunt is still going bad for me, I'm at 2820 SR right now with the shiny charm. I can get in about 85 to 90 SR done in an hour. Wish me luck everyone cuz I would love for this green Latios to show itself to me!

    Today I did 100 Taillow eggs with MM'ing, and 530 Random Encounters, the first 330 brought me to a total of 4,330, where I got myself a Shiny Piloswine with 31 IV on special defence, and 200 extra on route 15. Hoping for a Gligar/Sandslash/Pupitar. Aiming to do 500 more tomorrow. Good night / Good luck all!
