    Little luck today. I decided to spruce things up and duel hunt. I was hatching eggs on my black 2 for the community hunt on my 3DS, which I decided to pick up again after a week off. Up to 720 eggs on it.

    I also did another god knows how many REs for my SS on my DS lite. I'm somewhere between 7000-9000, judging by average encounters per minute and hours spent hunting. Shiny luck doesn't happen to me unless I've worked really hard, which means I should be getting bucketloads of shinies for how much effort I put in for exams.

    Oh well, tomorrows another day for some more hunting, and outside of working the weekends I'm off until january 2nd.

    First off congrats to those who have gotten a shiny since my last post and good luck to those still hunting.

    I have had no luck on my HG BQ or my W2 BQ. I've kinda put my HG BQ on hold for the moment while I focus on getting my W2 BQ started and on my MM hunts on B2. I don't know how many SRs I have done for Tepig on W2 but I started the hunt on the 14th of November and have done a minimum of an hour a day. I'm really hoping it will shine before christmas.

    I'm really happy to say that finally my shiny Charmander hunt has ended. I was originally MMing for it on my HG where I hatched 4,260 eggs. I decided to give up on the hunt and shift all the pokemon onto my B2 back in October. After completing my Ponyta hunt I decided it was time to give Charmander another shot and it shone on the 498th egg. When it hatched I scared my dogs with my squealing. Oops. Anyway I've been lucky with MMing lately so hopefully some of that luck will pass on to those still hunting. I hope it does.

    Everyone here is draining my luck. Over 4k of random encounters with the shiny charm, and still nothing.

    I'll try and mark the 4741 encounters today. (twice the shiny odds with the charm.) at 5k I will be switching routes. Maybe gonna try for skarmory or something?

    Oh and just another general question...how do some people hatch eggs so fast? I can hatch about 40-50 maximum a day if I do nothing but spend 3-4 hours running around route 3 with a flame body poke (massive waste of time imo). The guy on join avenue only offers 5 spots of level 5 hatches, so unless all 8 shops are level 10 nurseries it seems impossible that some people are getting 200+ eggs a day?

    To be honest i am also wondering about this. I try to hatch at least one box full a day but i do a different method of taking two from the box and getting three from daycare man so it works out i am hatching 75 eggs per box. It does take time to hatch them though so hatching 200/300 eggs a day... how are you doing it?
    Shinies are good.

    If I am hatching eggs I usually get 5 eggs of the daycare man, hatch them and softreset. For my feeling it goes faster. I hatch like 30 a hour.

    I get 4 from my box, leaving room for 1 from the daycare man and then when he yells at me to come get the egg, I get it and then deposit that one in the box and repeat. I use Flame Body too. It also depends on what you are hatching. Lapras takes soooo long whereas a Ralts or Pidgey wouldn't. I don't really count how many I do in an hour, day, etc., but I tend to do what I feel is a good amount. At least 100 a day or so if I am busy and more if I am not. Most people can do 200+ if they have all day to do it, like when they are winter break from school or whatever.

    As for me, I am now working on my last box for Eevee with only 15 eggs left to hatch. Once these 15 are hatched, I will work on doing some REing, which I have neglected to do for days. Also, I won't be doing as much hunting per day starting tomorrow because I now have a full-time job! It is where I did my internship at, so I know mostly what is going on, but I will be at a different location.

    Anyways, congrats on ALL DEM SHINIES!! Wow. So many since the last time I have been on! Work hard guys, happy hunting, and good luck! <3

    I can hatch about 30 in an hour if I'm paying attention. I just use the flame body lead and bike on route 3. Maybe you're hatching something that requires a lot of steps to hatch? I also have the round charm, that might be speeding things up since I don't have to wait as long to collect eggs.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I often stock up the eggs first, so some of them are already partially hatched.

    @Dylz, No one stole your luck, you just used it up on all those quick hunts earlier in the month

    I really hoped for something nice at route 15, but it seems out that that route is bloody cursed. >,< So switching back to Reversal mountain, maybe finding a Drifblim or Skarmory.

    5,500 RE at Route 14 now! Hoping for something soon. I know I still have a ways to go before going over the odds but I hope I get a shiny under the odds on this final hunt for my badge quest!

    Thanks to Round Charm and lv 10 Nursery I can easily collect AND hatch around 250-300 eggs a day, especially on weekends. And I don't even have to waste time depositing/witdrawing eggs and pokemon from the pc as well as releasing them. Basically I save before colecting 5 eggs, then head to the Nursery, hatch them and if there is no shiny I SR and start the process all over again.

    But I suppose in the end its really up to you

    (side note: I always refuse the first egg from the Day Care man because apparently the first egg is always the same)

    Update - 400 Zorua eggs hatched, nothing yet.

    I used to do what Bluemiracle does, but then my OCD about WHERE a shiny hatches took over.

    While it's much more efficient to collect 5, hatch, and SR, I like choosing where my shinies hatch, so I take the much longer route and collect 100, save before each batch of five, and then hatch 5 and release.

    Not for everyone, but it works for me!

    Edit: And no, I don't ACTUALLY have OCD, it's just that I'm very particular about certain details, that's all. OCD may be a bit exaggerated!

    240 hatched for my Pawniard, and uncountable SR's for my Johto Starter.

    I collect 60 eggs and then hatch them 5 at a time on Skyarrow Bridge. I'm sure there are faster more efficient methods but I like mine for the time being, however I might try SRing over 5 eggs when I try for something in the 10,000+ step group.

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Of course, the way most of us use it, it isn't ACTUALLY legitimate OCD.

    That's the 2nd time I want over the odds, and still no shiny. Gonna do 300 more tonight so I reach the 5k.



    What are your guys favorite routes to hatch shiny's on?

    And does this count as a OCD:

    - I want all my party pokémon level 100, same gender, same form (Shiny or not shiny) & in a Luxury ball.

    God Bramble if your longest hunt is only a 1000 - odd hunt then you could be in store for MUCH longer hunts haha
