    Still not switching routes, I'll stay there. Patrat has the lowest percentage to encounter, just like koffing. And still I got them both shiny. (Wish I had that luck with the Metang... That I still don't got.) Growlithe shouldn't be that hard.

Posting at 3am to say you're at 600 SRs with no shinies, and then again 5 hours later to say you're at 1,000 SRs with no shinies is not fine. Those are the posts I'm trying to get rid of. Once a day, good. More than that, bad.

    everyone, please read that.





    If any of you are still posting unnecessary progress reports, I might start counting them as SPAM and delete them.

    If I recall correctly, there was a shiny club in the past that got closed because of all the SPAM. You want this one to get closed as well?

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.

    Thanks for those who congratulated me, guys!

    And congrats on the Lugia, AquaRegisteel, the Spearow, Zenn, and the Patrat, Dylz. Patrat ain't a bad shiny, so be happy!

    I caught another shiny, like about two hours ago!!! It appeared after 602 encounters on Victory Road. I always wanted to get one, and I've hatched for it in Black and White, and also tried to encounter for it, but had no success, and then on another occasion I got a different shiny to shine instead.

    After I EV trained and evolved Skorpios, I went to Victory Road with a new target in mind, and hunted as much as I could last night before I felt too tired. So, I put the game in sleep mode, and started hunting again the next morning. Nothing appeared, so I saved the game and resetted it. After around 45 minutes of encounters, I was thinking I should probably get up soon, and wasn't really looking at the screen when I heard that familiar noise. It literally startled me because I wasn't prepared for it or even thinking about it, so I kind of jumped.

    It was a female, and the nicknames I had in mind were for a male, so I had to try and find something that fits and also something I'm happy with.

    http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/964/1000816s.jpg

    So, yeah, I'm quite happy, for sure. I've already started collecting eggs for my next hunt. I can only collect 60 of them before my boxes are filled, though. After that, I will probably do the CH. Finally. And then I should either need to hunt something else I've always wanted, or really need to start on a new game in my backlog and have a bit of a break from Pokemon. I mean, not a long break, but I need to focus on other games sometimes, because otherwise they're neglected.

    Congrats...When I first read that, I thought you actually "knew" the uploader to know how happy he was...Kinda slow on that one X]

    Congrats on the other shinies too; Noctowl, Cottonee, and Patrat are the ones I can recall, but any others as well...And I agree on the Patrat, would be a pretty disappointing shiny if I ever got one. But hey, I'll still accept *1* wild shiny Patrat encounter if I catch it. Good luck with Growlithe; I'd like one as well! Hope you don't end up with another Patrat instead >_>

    Good luck on everyone's hunts.

    Here are a couple ideas:

    1) A chatbox for shiny hunters
    2) Blogs (So everyone could update their own blogs, and their friends will see the updates and even might to comment.)
    3) Let the spam continue, and let the completed community hunts be PM'ed to Dangertrout
    4) Or don't spam at all.


    Gonna continue my hunt for growlithe, currently on 100 random encounters.

    Honestly, the current rules are fine as they are. People have definitely been abusing it lately and for a mod to come in and warn us about a possible thread closure should be the catalyst for people to calm it down a bit. It's not imperative to inform everyone about a few hundred unsuccessful RE's every hour or so. The main focus of this thread, I believe, is to share in completing our hunts, encourage people who have gone over the odds and maybe have a one off daily update on how your hunts are going.

    That being said I still haven't continued on my BQ this week. Thought I'd be feeling better but with that and working a lot I've had no time.
    Congrats to Zenn on 2 shinies in 2 days and well done to everyone else. Here's hoping Sunday can be lucky for everyone.

    I always tell my progress in the morning and in the evening. And now and then I congrats people, say I got a shiny or answering questions.

    Even that is to much. And almost no one spams, I can't even think about one, the main reason that the thread is "fully spammed" is because of the shiny hunters, there are a lot of them.

    Or is that only my opinion?


    Starting my hunt on growlithe today, hope it spawns soon like my Ditto, Clefairy or Drifblim. (Which I didn't caught.)

    Congrats on the shiny Spiritomb and Skorupi. And congrats to all other new shinies. ^_^

    As you can see from my avatar I'm hunting for a shiny Frillish next in my White 2 badge quest; it's a shiny I've been wanting to hunt for since I started my BQ. I don't particularly care which gender shines, because they both look great. I'm at just over 1000 encounters so far.

    I'm also at 18,000 encounters in my Heart Gold badge quest. Come on, someone shine already! u_u

    Good luck guys.

    Congrats on all the recent shinies everybody!!

    I really haven't been hunting much recently because I was playing through my Black 2. Then, I was working a lot on my Join Avenue to get a nursery and to get it to level 10. Then, I had to get the shiny charm (that took forever!). And I think now that I am finally able to hunt.

    I did some SR's on my Black 2 for Kyurem and on my Jap. White for Cresselia because I have the shiny charm in both, but that got boring really quick, so I have decided to change my hunt to Tepig in Black 2.

    I have always wanted Tepig, and I plan on using it for my shiny team. I hope I get a quick hunt!!

    On a side note...
    I do think that people need to limit their post here. You do not need to post here every few hours to say that you completed 500 more encounters and you hope it appears within the next X number of encounters. You only need to post here once a day (unless you get a shiny). I know people want a chatroom. Try to get one yourself and don't bug others to get it for you. If the current trend continues of people posting so much and disobeying the rules of this thread, I do think a mod needs to step in and stop that.

    ^Thank you Dangertrout for trying to limit these posts^

    Well, hello again guys. I don't bring news of a shiny, but I bring news of a new hunt.

    I have begun REing on Route 35 again, as my old Badge Quest never gave me anything from here. I am already at 900 REs, hoping for a shiny within 3,500 encounters. Again, I am hoping for NidoranM to shine, but I can take anything from this route.

    Meanwhile, congrats on the amazing Spiritomb and Skorupi! Thye look great.

    Also, I have recently discovered that the Jellicent in Undella Bay in BW2 cannot be shiny, according to an RNGer.
    That sucks a load. I would love a green Jellicent...

    Gustavo, it doesn't apply for Braviary/Mandibuzz. There are plenty of videos of Braviary being SRed as shiny.

    Wait, so would that presumably apply to the Braviary/Mandibuzz on Route 4 as well? Because that would be disappointing. Okay, thanks! Now I wonder why Jellicent is the one that can't be SR'ed for...Oh, well. It's not like Damp is a great ability on Jellicent anyway, though I still wonder.

    And, there's been tons of shinies recently, so congrats to all of you! I'm especially jealous of Zane's Skorupi and Cottonee, as they're both fantastic shinies. And no, I have no shiny to report, though it would be nice to get Articuno soon. The lesson I've learned is to not take on too many hunts at once. >.<
    It's far more tiresome to handle than I thought, though it is nice being able to shuffle between games to help deal with the boredom a bit. I also haven't given a progress update recently, so I may as well include that: 1350 RE's in Route 207, and 2100 RE's in Relic Castle. Finally have some real progress in them, and I'm hoping to get more done in Route 207, along with Articuno. That's all I've got today, so good luck on those hunts everyone!

    I seriously haven't posted on here in a month I apologize to everyone for that. I haven't had the time to play Pokemon much. I haven't done a shiny hunt in weeks. I am gonna start playing again though, and picking back up with my hunts. My job, and getting Black Ops 2 took away a lot of my Pokemon time, but im gonna fit in time for Pokemon again.

    Well after 3246 REs I finally get a shiny on my BQ!

    http://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/.../isosystem.jpg

    I got this on Friday but I couldn't post until now.

Lots of shinies lately but gratz on them all and good luck everyone.

    Default Community Hunt Complete!!

    After only 568 eggs my shiny Lapras hatched making this my shortest hunt yet. I wasn't expecting it to shine so soon so I have almost two full boxes of eggs. http://s1291.beta.photobucket.com/us...pras1.jpg.html

    Now to resume my ponyta hunt! Congrats to all the recent shinies. There seems to have been a lot lately. Good luck to everyone else.

    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.

    Currently on 1k random encounters, calling it a day.

    Good night everyone, and good luck with shiny hunting. :3

    Hope that Growlithe shines tomorrow! :-(
