    I think it's something like 1 in 1,064 with the charm as opposed to 1 in 1,300 and something without. So not too much of a difference.

    SR's make DS gone a little broken (is it?) but with the masuda method its hard... so no comment

    Still MMing yanma away. At this point, I doubt I will find one soon. I have nearly 200 eggs right now, and nothing has even felt like it will be shiny :<


    Just found out bulbapedia is working again, but quite a few people may not be able to get to it without going around the block as the 'message' hasn't been sent to most visitors yet...

    Congrats cocoa! Nice to see you making up for lost time!

    Fingers crossed to TheMaster on the Ducklett hunt. That takes serious perseverance so hopefully it doesn't go on much longer!

    I ran into a shiny Rattata on route 32 in my HeartGold but since i'm playing a Nuzlocke and since I already caught something on the route I couldn't catch it. Even if I did it's not like I was gonna use it. It was just gonna sit in the PC anyway.

    I just reached 28 hours of random encounters in my Leaf Green...

    I dont know if this is a lot or it isnt (im not going to waste time using a calculator each time I do one RE) but it feels really boring... I just want something to shine, even if its a Spearow -_-

    I thought nuzlocke rules allow shinies to be caught anyways? There's a rule allowing shinies to be caught no matter what.

    Well, a Nuzlocke is ultimately a self-imposed challenge. So it's up to the individual if they want to follow the rules to the letter or make some exceptions.

    I'm still stocking Smoochum eggs. Really hoping there's a shiny in this batch, because I'm over the odds of MMing in any version at this point >.<

    Yeah I'm being extra hard on myself in this Nuzlocke. I even counted the Pokemon that I ran into on my way to Mr.Pokemon's house as that Route's encounter even though we do not have access to Pokeball's at that point in the game yet. Besides Shinies aren't all that special anymore especially since they created the Shiny Charm.

    Hello everyone! Don't know if any of you remember me, I was quite active for a few months in the summer but since going on holiday I kinda got out of the loop and then I was really busy with university.....in any case, when I left I had just started a Shiny Petilil hunt. I hatched about 300 eggs, got bored out of my mind and stopped, and then Black and White 2 came out over here and I stopped playing completely. But then the other day I wanted to trade over some stuff from White 2 to help complete my Pokedex, remembered my hunt and decided to finally give it another go. I didn't really care about the nature/ability anymore, I just wanted to move on, and I didn't really think I'd finish it anyways but I thought I'd give it a go and I guess I got really lucky because on my last egg I got a Shiny Modest Chlorophyll Petilil, exactly what I was hoping for! Dunno about IVs yet but I'm pretty pleased.

    Now to look through the last like 80 pages and see what everyone else has been up to lol....

    EDIT: Also, does anyone know how to get the pokemon sprites for shiny cards? I used to get them off of bulbapedia but now they're showing up all blurry on my computer.....is that just me? Really odd...
    EDIT AGAIN: Fixed - my window was set to 105%, I'm a ******* lol

    OMFG!
    I got my first shiny of 2013!
    Short story, I was hunting at Sangi Ranch and I had my Black 2 in my 3DS and my White 2 in my DS Lite.
    Well, I wasn't paying much of an attention because I was kinda bored and was watching TV,
    when I turned to look at Black 2, lo and behold, a shiny appeared on my White 2 (Third shiny on this file!)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEM6yEVOutk
    30 encounters!
    I was using Minccino in hopes of netting a shiny female Riolu and suddenly, after ten REs of using it (I switched from using my Watchog) vioila!

    Good luck to everyone taking part in the Community Hunt and everyone else on their own targets.
    I'm not going to take part in the community hunt because I want to focus on getting my johto starter to start my Soul Silver badge quest.

    Up to 650 SRs today which is 1950 starter pokemon seen altogether and no luck as of yet, not that i'd expect anything at this early stage, but I do hope it doesn't take forever to shine, because I've planned out the routes i'll be hunting on and I really want to get started on that.

    Anyways congrats on all of the recent shinies :P

    I've only had one shiny, and that was a Wurmple on Emerald at the beginning of the game. At the time I honestly didn't have any clue what a shiny was, so after I saved the file, a week later I wanted to make a new file. Forgot about how rare the shiny Wurmple was, and erased the file.

    So darn.

When an egg in your party hatches, you can swap out for an egg from your PC.
    I've just been filling my group with 5 eggs and when one hatches, I throw it into the PC, go over to the Day Care Man and collect another egg.

    When I MM hunt, I switch up my methods once awhile, to keep things interesting.
    One method I would do is when I hatch an egg, I release it, to save time rather empty entire boxes.
    Another method is collecting eggs and storing them, then take three at a time and collect two new
    ones from the DC Man.

    One other is simply collecting all that I can collect and depending on the version and game, find a long stretch route or use the route the DC is on
    and hatch them there.

    Switch them up if you're getting bored, make a game out of it.

    I've tried most of those methods, the one I'm currently using though is SRing over 5 eggs. This is my favorite so far and seems to go quickly. On that note I am now to 200 eggs for my Budew hunt, if it hatches in the next 30 it will beat my Pawniard which I would appreciate. *looks at ds and says; "cough hint hint cough"* If not technically Pawniard did take 883, so I must persevere.

    Congrats on that Psyduck, TomoEGoto! Just updating you guys. I just remembered that Bebe gives you an Eevee too, so I'm dual SRing for it on both Platinum and Soulsilver. Next time I post will be when I have a shiny. Good luck everyone!

    I am at 2615 REs on my SS Badge Quest. Looks like I'm in it for the long haul again... If my shortest hunt on this quest was the 4800 some odd I had to do for Cyndaquil I will be so annoyed. Having some luck go my way would be really swell...

    Hi everyone. A little while ago when I'd just woken up and had tucked my Pokemon in to the dream world in Black/White 2, I noticed that I had 5 Riolu eggs in my Black 2 party, so I decided to fly to the driftveil drawbridge to hatch them (while collecting EV-wings at the same time).

    And guess what... a shiny Ducklett appeared. o.o

    That only took 47 encounters since my last shiny (though technically it's 99 if you include the eggs I'd hatched), so that's another fast shiny with the shiny charm.

    I didn't bother filming it (mainly because I was half-asleep, so I just chucked a heal ball at it instantly ^^; ) but I did take a profile picture. It's male and Lonely natured.

    Shiny Ducklett

    As for my other shiny hunts; I'm now at 55 Riolu hatched in Black 2, 2500 SR for Thundurus in White, 8146 encounters in my White 2 badge quest, and 22,500 encounters in my Heart Gold badge quest.


    Good luck guys. And I especially hope you get your own shiny Ducklett soon, Master.
