    At 2194 soft resets for Kyurem hopefully it shines soon...this shiny charm doesn't want to give me much good luck yet

    if you want to SR for shinies be my guest but technically SRing for a shiny isn't random. the game works on pseudo-random number generation, pseudo as in false. meaning it is as close to random as they can get but technically not "random" at all.

    i'm in the process of RNG abusing/soft resetting for a shiny ho-oh though in my heart gold even though I'm skilled at RNG abuse I read that you shouldn't attempt RNG in heart gold before you've beat the elite 4.

    if you think about it, soft resetting could be considered just as illegitimate as RNG abuse with a reporter if you wanted to be anal. one could say the only "true" shiny pokemon are random encountered as you play the game.

    I reached 530 REs last night on the CH, passing the number of encounters on my trainer card in white 2 in finding the file's first shiny. My black took 5,103 before finding shiny boldore, and my white 2 has about 5200 on it...hopefully I'll get a shiny this weekend!

    Congrats to everyone with recent shinies!

    My Gastly hunt has been put on hold for a while, while I collect eggs for my first MM hunt: Bulbasaur. Currently sitting at 48 eggs, none have been hatched yet. I'll start hatching when I hit 200 or 300 eggs

    Just a week after hatching my first shiny (Totodile), another one appeared! I was exping random Pokemon west of Lacunosa - and suddenly shiny Sunkern from nowhere. December is my lucky month, it seems.

    Starting community hunt now, will try to MM a shiny Vanillite.

    Just a question - I see all these people saying they're at 500 SR or 700 RE...how do you know? I get that you might be keeping a tally for the soft reset as you're doing nothing but sitting there resetting, but with random encounters how would you know how many pokes you've come across? I mean, you start encountering pokemon at the start of the game, how can you remember how many wild pokemon you've run across?

    Congrats on all the shinies everyone!! Been a lucky week for us.

    I've done about 600 REs on my badge quest between last night and now. I'm gonna have to balance in some study time this weekend for my only worrying exam Monday, but luckily (or unluckily I guess) I don't work this weekend thanks to a severe burn on my hand, so I got time for encounters.

    I'm hoping for Mareep, but any will do.

    Best of luck to everyone!!!

    Ps. Does anyone know if Bill's Eevee can be shiny? If I decide to, I'd love a shiny Espeon.

    In gen 5 games, you can see how many wild encounters you have on your trainer card. I think in DPPt there was also a place you could check that. a place that had a computer that displayed records... was it in Jublife? It's been a while since I've touched those games >.<

    Hello all, room for one more? I'm SRing for a shiny HG starter, don't care which one I get, even though Chikorita is a starter near and dear to my heart. ^_^ I'm trying to get into shiny hunting, so you can expect to see me here more often. :P

    Yes, there are plenty of vids on YT of people getting a shiny Eevee that way.

    In other news, I've decided to pick up my hunt on Soul Silver for shiny Horsea/Seadra hopefully the modest sync works. I'm also over 11k encounters now in relic passage. I noticed that I found all my BQ shinies so far on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday so hopefully something shines soon! good luck everyone.

    Well, just got back from doing 2 hours of community service, and not even 30 minutes into RE'ing, shiny Baltoy appeared at 3322 RE's! Baltoy.JPG
    Of course, the first thing it tries is Selfdestruct, but if you remember my shiny Wooper, it had Damp, so I made perfect use of that. And believe it or not, a critical capture, like Joltik, but this one with a fantastic Luxury Ball. And Jolly nature with great Sp. Atk IV, just like Joltik. I have a secret MM hunt planned next in Black 2, but I'm going to hold on that until Articuno shines, maybe. Now I'll be EV'ing Baltoy, since I love Claydol's shiny color, and then moving on to Articuno and Route 207 again. Congrats on the recent shinies, and good luck everyone!

    Filled around 2 1/2 Boxes with growlithe. Filled 1 Box with Heatmor. Currently in Area 6 of the Whitetree Hollow. Hopefully Heatmor will shine soon. Shiny Heatmor looks Boss. I met my Cousin Last Night While Hunting For Heatmor. She wanted to see me hunt Kyurem, she was like "Let's go hunt that Shiny!". So Encouraging. Sadly Kyurem wasn't there... Does anyone know how to fight Kyurem? I've beaten the game. Thought that was all I needed to do...

    Hey, all, up to 821 on my Rotom hunt. Looks like it's going to be a long one, so I've decided to spend the rest of the day hunting. Just an idea I've had, I know February's a long way off, but it's also Chinese New Year. It's going to be the year of the snake, so I was thinking that maybe for February one of the options could be a snake hunt?

    Congrats on all the shinies!

    My Platinum game arrived yesterday, I can't wait to start it. Another BQ question though, how is your team supposed to be made up exactly? I guess I always just assumed the shiny pokemon are your team to fight with mainly, but can you have different pokemon in your team while trying to find your shinies? Ie. Can you use non-shiny pokemon to shiny hunt with (like to use false/swipe or super fang with or other moves that help catch them), or is it supposed to be just hunting with the shiny pokemon you've caught?

    Good luck on everyone's hunts.

    Congratulations! Baltoy is a little beauty to have. Good luck to you on Articuno and Ponyta.

    Starting up my REing again, at 4,307 now.

    Meanwhile, I have also hit 625 SRs for a Johto Starter. Hoping for Cyndaquil again..

    Good luck and a blanket congrats to all!

    EDIT: Cpchris, you can do anything on your team.
