    Congrats on all the new shiny pokes everyone has gotten! Since I am getting burned out on SRing for legendary pokes I am gonna take a small break and MM for a Igglybuff ^.^ Jigglypuff is my all time favorite pokemon so I am really excited to get this hunt going! Just got my male JP parent off of the GTS and have my female DW parent so I am ready to start collecting eggs. Keep up the great work everyone and good luck to you all

    Well, I just caught a Shiny hasty Rattata on my leaf green yesterday. That's the very first non-rng shiny I've obtained in months. For shits and giggles, I decided to EV train her and whatnot.
    Guess I'm good at RNGing stuff.

    Holy freaking god. After 7034 Soft Resets, I finally have my first Shiny in Fire Red/Leaf Green, my first 1/8192 SR'd Shiny, and my first Shiny Starter. A Shiny Charmander has finally appeared in my Leaf Green, which is the one that I had originally started my BQ in. I admittedly nearly given up hope of finding it, given how I was a little more than a thousand away from going over the chances. In all honesty, it caught me off guard. I was surfing the web when I looked down and saw it.

    Plus, I have pics, unlike my other Shinies.

    Hey everybody it has been a long time!
    Don't know if anyone will remember me but whatever :P
    Sorry but I have been taking a break from pokemon due to myself getting Borderlands 2 and playing that for the past couple of months!
    FINALLY I got my copy of white 2 (WOOT) So I am currently playing through that right now.
    When I am finished I may get back into shiny hunting as I have always loved it.
    Last time I was hunting I had done around 950 SR for a Johto starter.
    CONGRATZ on all of the latest shinys and...

    Hey everyone!

    I would like to think that I have made a good amount of progress since getting my second Eevee yesterday. I did 200 REs today so far (probably wont do any more today as it takes soooo long to find one) and I am up to 60 eggs hatched out of 180 collected so far. I will probably work more on my eggs later on today. I am 1/4 of the way to reaching my goal, only (insert lolz here), ONLY 3/4 of the way more to go! I will be amazed if I could get all 8 before December ends! (I doubt it, but it would be nice).

    Happy hunting everyone and good luck!

    Just curious about it people. I'm not trying to bring up an argument nor a flamewar like last time, but why don't you guys RNG stuff instead of soft reset? I mean, soft resetting is a way of messing with the RNG, too...

    Everyone has their own reasons. Some as simple as they like the randomness of how long it will take to achieve their goal.
    I would appreciate it if you would refrain from inciting a flame war, since you are fully aware that the question of RNG abuse invariably has that result.

    edit - I'm not trying to pick on you, I'm just saying that regardless of intentions, the results are the same. so let's avoid that conversation altogether if we know where it will likely lead.

    Yes, but SRing isn't all intentional and timed like Rnging, it's random.
    Besides shinies don't feel valuable to most of us.
    Still, you shouldn't really question other's methods. It's a hobby we enjoy doing, even if it drives us insane ›.‹

    300 SRs for a starter, got about 240 SRs on the coach from the 35 I did yesterday...

    @Dangertrout
    I am responsible for my words, not for what people interpret. I clearly stated I didn't mean to start an argument, and such my hands shall remain clean regardless of the outcome, plain and
    simple. Besides, I just got what I wanted: an answer to soothe my curiosity.

    Currently on 1.7k Random Encounters at route 15, no luck yet. I'm really hoping for a Shiny Gligar or Pupitar. (Male)


    Currently trying to create a shiny hunter team on my Pokémon Ruby. (Need 2 teams, for my Black2 & White2.) :3

    Congratulations on the latest shiny's and good luck to the people that need them.



    Good night all!

    Congrats on all the recent shinies!

    I've decided on using my copy of Platinum at Xmas to start a Badge Quest!!
    whilst using my black 2 to play through once before properly looking for shinys / MMing
    And I've also decided that my favorite Shiny is Shinx

    Well life has caught a hold of me and I haven't been able to shiny hunt in quite some time. Today I plan on continuing with my shiny pidgey hunt on Soul Silver. I'm at 915 right now and want to get a box or two done tonight before I go to be. Wish me luck and confraternity to everyone's recent shinies. I will join you all on community hunts starting next month too. I really like that idea in a Shiny Thread.

    Well, not much to say, but I haven't updated in a bit, so I'm going with that. 2730 RE's in Route 207, and somehow one of the berries on top of the cliff completely disappeared. Didn't know that could happen. And for Articuno, I'm not so sure it will shine in time for the end of next week, and I'll be gone for the rest of the month from that point for vacation. I hope I can complete this Community Hunt on time, though, since I don't want to spend so long SR'ing in Soul Silver again. Good luck on those hunts, everyone!

    I'm not counting SRs, but I know I've done a full week of SRing for Tepig. Still, out of nothing, nothing. Hopefully the something will appear soon. I should really start counting for my shiny hunts again...

    Good luck to all.

    Finally!!!!!!!! After about 4800 soft resets, I finally found a shiny starter!! A Cyndaquil!!!

    Funnily enough, Cyndaquil was the one I wanted the least, as it is my least favourite Johto Starter, but for an in-game shiny only run it might be my best bet. I would have loved Chikorita the most, but that might have been the least helpful. xD

    And now my badge quest officially begins!!


    And quick question, can the Eevee you get from Bill be shiny? If I feel adventurous I wouldn't mind a shiny Espeon.

    Edit: Male with a jolly nature and is somewhat of a clown. God this game likes giving me jolly starters. Kind of a poor nature, but I guess I'll just run mixed/physical Typhlosion.

    Poor Quality image, because of poor lighting and my phone takes poor pics, but here's my beauty

    Gratz on the Sneasel, Rattata, Charmander and Cyndaquil! Awesome shinies :] I'm still dual hunting and both of my hunts have went over 10k encounters which is crazy but I'm use to it. I know that if I just stick to it something will eventually shine! Good luck everyone.

    Congrats on all those shinies! Seems like a lot of people got one today.

    I decided to sort of dual hunt today. But since the Eevee hunt takes all my concentration basically (and both my hands), it was kind of at a 1:1 ratio, where once I got an Eevee encounter, I'd mark a tally on the sheet with one hand and move the circle pad around on my SS game with the other hand while letting the Eevee appear.

    Kind of can't wait until I catch my Eevee in part so that I can more effectively dual hunt

    My Platinum Version should be arriving on Saturday, though I'm considering waiting to start that BQ until after I've caught my Eevee.

    I did manage to get through 200 REs for Eevee today though, bringing my total to 1700 REs (with an additional 19 from double encounters - those get marked to the left of the red line on my paper since they're rare enough to take up very little space). 200 REs is the most I've ever done in a day so far. I was hoping to reach 250, but...Nearly 2 hours tonight was spent making a batch of chocolate chip cookies, so =.= ...

    Probably won't get much done on Friday and Saturday. Will be working both days from about 11 am to ~10 pm (possibly a little later ).



    Also, somewhat digressing, but I'm kind of eager to get my own place once I'm more financially secure, as I've been planning for like a year or so now that once I have the space, I'll get a cheap-ish treadmill and a little exercise while I'm gaming/on my laptop. I figure that way, I can spend hours hunting shiny pokemon without feeling 100% lazy. I'll just do a slow walk while I hunt for stuff (or whatever else I'm doing online or something). Luckily right now, my metabolism has been generous to me and I stay at ~120 lbs despite eating horrible food every day (but I envision my insides as being disgustingly fatty and unhealthy). But who knows when the day will come when it stabs me in the back and slows down...But if I walked for like 3 hours or something while I'm shiny hunting (or even if I did some sort of HIIT, if I could pull that off while hunting without dropping my systems or something), then I could stay healthy(ish) without giving up my free time to do lazy stuff

    On the off-chance that someone else has tried something like that (specifically with shiny hunting)...How'd it work out? I personally can't see how it'd be too difficult to walk while moving a circle pad a little (and hitting "run"), but...

    I reached 2,550 SRs in my shiny Moltres hunt and decided to stop counting. Hoping it will help relieve some hunt fatigue. I was considering giving up, but the recent influx of shinies in this thread has helped me stay motivated. Kind of pathetic considering many hunts go much, much farther, but I'm not one who likes to do this for fun. Lest my eyes and/or wrists give up, I plan to see this through to the end, but I will definitely stick to MM for any future endeavors. Legendaries are far too much hassle to hunt like this on a regular basis.

    Congratulations on all the new shinies, and best of luck to those still hunting.

    Congrats to all those who have got a shiny since my last post. Slightly jealous of those who got Charmander and Cyndaquil as they are at the top of my want list.

    Still no luck on my White 2 and HG badge quests. Been SR'ing for Tepig on White 2 for over a month now, but it's only been 10 days since my last shiny on HG.

    After hatching my Snorunt a few days ago I decided to MM a Ponyta. I have hatched one after a very surprising 189 eggs. Its male and has a mild nature. I just love those blue flames. Picture below. The album also contains pics/video of some of my other shiny pokemon including my Snorunt from a few days ago.

    Omg! Community hunt complete!

    http://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/...psba40ec6e.jpg

    YES! After 10,891 encounters I got the shiny I wanted!@ Nature turned out to be lax which is okay and this was the only Ice type I didn't have this gen, now I have them all! I think I'm gonna finally get back to my hunt on Soul Silver which was RE'ing in Whirl Islands for hopefully a shiny Horsea/Seadra. Gratz on the Ponyta and good luck everyone!

    Question

    Congrats on any new shinies since I last posted! I've been reading the thread everyday but didn't have anything to post about so sorry I can't remember them all...

    I've been hatching my backlog of Charmander and Snover eggs, up to 340 Charmanders now with no shiny and I still have 90 Snovers to hatch! Village Bridge will be resumed after I hatch the eggs tomorrow, and I'll do more egg collecting and hatching when I get to 4000 or 5000 RE! Busy time on my White 2 game.

    Anyways, I come bearing news of my next shiny hunt, because I'm pretty excited! Though I hope I'm not breaking any rules, I'll check the OP after I've posted and edit if needs be.
    Years ago, around 2009? I owned an Action Replay, don't ask why it was just something I used back then, though cheating became boring eventually and after I lost it I never rebought it. While I had the AR, I hacked myself the green delivery guy who gives you the Oaks Letter, and used it, of course, to unlock Seabreak Path and the Flower Paradise. I went there earlier today to check if I had caught Shaymin or not and apparently I never got round to actually catching it, luckily!

    You can probably see where this is going. Shaymin is one of my favourite legendaries and shinies and so I'm going to SR for it! I know cheating is frowned upon and my Shaymin will never really be legit, but I plan to of course SR with the regular 1/8192 odds, seeing as I don't own my AR anymore. It'll still be just as valuable to me as any other shiny I own :3
    I'll go check the rules now, I'm hoping it's okay to post this because I'd love to be able to share when I get it. I appreciate there will be people who disagree with me doing this, so if there is then just know I'll always admit its only half-legit, but still special to me personally :3

    Edit: Congrats on the shiny Vanillish, City Of Delusion!
