    =D You know what I love about this thread. The fact you all remain so optimistic after 1000 tries and are still just plugging away giving it your best to get your favourite shinies.

    If I didn't had the Shiny Charm I wouldn't even be trying.

    I gotta admit, it does make alot of sense to wait untill you have the charm before attempting the shiny hunting,
    And I can see why people do it,

    BUT ,like gamer legend said, its nice to see most people in here full of optimism, and I know it takes a certain of person to be able to have ( for example ) 16,500 re's and still carry on,

    And to be fair it looks like all those certain people have all found there way here

    I'm proud to be able to call myself one of these people!!

    Good job everyone

    Yeah you can get the Shiny Charm when you complete the pokedex without having the event pokémon. I got Manaphy, Phione, Shaymin, Darkrai, Victini, Genesect. :3 6 more to go xD


    Edit; Is there anywhere a Pokémon chat that talks mostly about Shiny?

    Been meaning to get a shiny Poliwag to evolve into Politoad, but been far too lazy to figure out how to get the best results in the least amount of time.

    Look in my Sig. My Deino took 2,922 eggs. Swablu was a close second with 2,352 eggs and my Sneasel 2,222 eggs. Yeah. It is possible. LoL.

    And a little side note: I might just start my Eeveelution shiny quest after I get this MM ice type. I just saw a shiny Espeon in a wifi battle on YouTube and it makes me want to hunt them!!!!! So I think it is settled. My shiny Eeveelution hunt (which is all 8 shiny) starts when my CH target ends (unless I change my mind.) Lol.

    Happy hunting everyone and good luck!

    Dylz, what pokemon are you missing in your pokedex to get the shiny charm? I'd be more than happy to help you out this weekend if I can.

    No attempts on Kyurem yesterday. Spent the time trying to get some work done on one of my papers.

    Well shiny hunting was a thing before the charm and probably will still be after it (assuming theres's no shiny charm in gen 6) A lot of shiny hunters like myself prefer to hunt with the normal odds since its more challenging and awarding to get that 1/8192 shiny to appear. :]

    Around 2.5k encounters so far in Chargestone, hoping that I'll get it under the odds but every shiny on this BQ so far have went over but I'm hoping that chain breaks soon. Good luck everyone!

    You guys have no stamina! :P If you think 1000 encounters or 1500 eggs is a lot, try doing 27,000 soft resets, like me... and then finding out that Reshiram is programmed not to be shiny. I still haven't got over it yet. XD


    Now at just over 3200 encounters in my White 2 badge quest, and 17,200 encounters in my Heart Gold badge quest.

    And I have a new question: What have been your longest hunts to date?

    Here's mine:
    Random encounter: Blitzle - 25,036 encounters (not completely accurate, since the game counts double battles as one encounter, so in reality it's probably more like 30,000+ encounters)
    Soft reset: Dilaga - 25,249 soft resets
    Egg hatching: Eevee - 4880 eggs

    AC:NL - Helen from Fafner ~~ Dream Address: 7700-3428-6939
    3DS 1 FC: 2208-4574-2359 ~ 3DS 2 FC: 0834-1721-4212
    Newest shiny: Kyurem - 2nd February 2014 (Black 2 - 3329 soft resets)

    I don't need any Pokémon, since I already got the shiny charm. :3 To complete my dex I need event only Pokémon, Meloetta, Keldeo, Arcues, Celebi, Mew, Manaphy.



    EDIT: Just found out that I have over 200 posts, I been active for like a month. All of these posts are at shiny threads, like 30 orso in other threads.

    Hahaha. I bet somewhere on your computer is an Excel file which charts the progress of shiny hunts. Now as for Mew I don't give freebee's but at the same time I go soley for what I need to complete the National Dex which in the case of SoulSilver is the Kyogre from HeartGold. =P

    I honestly haven't been checking how much I've been hunting for Kyurem shiny I just keep turning on my DS at random times and keep SRing.

    Longest SR was probably Latias at around 5000 (I didn't count, as always)
    Longest MM is Charmander, because it's my first MM so far, and still going!
    Longest RE is Zigzagoon being my only RE, I don't know how many it was but it took 2 months to get. I really wanted orange Linoone, I still need to evolve him...

    Going to start Village Bridge encountering for green Marill now, wish me luck >3<
