    I just reached 18,400 SR's in my hunt for a shiny bulbasaur in my Leafgreen. At this point, I decided to try and beat Gustavo's Rayquaza hunt. 24,000 iirc?

    I finally did it. I've seen countless people SR shiny legendaries on this board, but deep down, I never truly believed it was possible because I'd never succeeded at it. I SR'ed on and off (mostly off) for Registeel on Platinum and then on White 2. Earlier tonight, I was eating out and SRing for Registeel (because this is one of the few circumstances I can bear to SR in), looked down and realized I had a green Registeel.

    I've been ready for this for months. I always have Magnezone behind my fainted Synchronizer, with Sonic Boom in the default slot in case I wind up doing a few attacks due to not paying attention. I paralyzed it, knocked it down to yellow health, and started chucking pokeballs. I thank whichever person pointed out that the anime uses plain pokeballs and that pokeballs look good on legendaries. 5 balls later, I caught it. Synch failed, so I got Lax nature instead of Relaxed, but it's not bad.

    I've never EV trained a legendary, but now is a good time to start. I can't catch Regice because I still haven't caught Regirock, but I'll get around to it eventually.

    My delight was tempered by the fact that today was a horrible day that I wouldn't wish on anyone. I guess some things, like the odds, are outside one's control.

    Just caught my first shiny! It was a skarmory on the outside of reversal mountain in White 2.

    After playing Pokemon games for the last 5 years and still never encountering a shiny, I thought this day might never come.

    First off, congrats on all the new shinies! No time to list them today but I know they're all great ;D

    I now have just 16 Pokémon to get till I have my Shiny Charm, which hopefully will have dropped to 5 by the end of tomorrow, maybe?!
    The main issue right now is getting Ho-Oh since I've just beaten Jasmine on HG. Won't take overly long, but training is going to slow me down a lot, darn bird!
    As for shiny hunting, I'm still hoping to stumble upon something while training and egg hatching, but no such luck yet. Starting Shaymin tomorrow though, won't be able to get too many SR's but I'll FINALLY start it, oh dear :P

    Also finally got Black 2 a few days ago but it's staying wrapped up till I have time to start my BQ! So tempting though~
    Just felt like coming and updating regardless though because it's been a few days. Maybe posting will bring me luck and I'll find a shiny Audino or something :O

    Good luck everyone, and I hope to be back in a few days either with the Shiny Charm or a shiny!

    Yes! Community hunt complete!

    I swear I was not going to pull through with MM for the CH because I've had rotten luck with MM in the past(Technically I did not hatch the Feebas after 55 eggs so I went through my notes, calculated what I was hunting before the Feebas and put the real amount of eggs it took on my signature). Not this time! The yellow jackel graced my screen on the 325th egg! I named him Floyd which relates to who I was listening to while hatching(I was listening to music and my playlist was on shuffle).

    Anyways, now that I've obtain this lovely shiny I honestly don't know what to do next. My Black 2 has been very good to me with shiny hunting so I don't know if I want to resume my old MM hunts or go back to RE because RE is my favourite method for shiny hunting at the moment. Oh, and I don't have the patience to obtain the shiny charm to obain shinies with better odds.

    Anyways, I'll figure out what I want to do later. Congrats to everyone else who obtained shinies and good luck to everyone still hunting!

SRing is easy because I have it in an egg so I just save on the last 2 steps of walking so, yah. Like, I got it from that breeder lady. Not terrible but, eh. GL people!

    For some reason I thought gender/nature/shininess was determined as soon as you picked up the egg. I wish I had known this earlier lol.

    I haven't done much in terms of the community hunt or Black 2 BQ. I'm mostly trying to get the second shiny on my SS badge quest before moving on. I'm at 2,500 random encounters so far. Congratulations to all the recent shinies and 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.

    Actually you are right Bunches, eggs have everything even shininess determined when picked up from the daycare man...

    Congratiez on the recent shinies~! I haven't been hunting much since my start in my new school, but i've started MMing shiny eevee, and i'm at 90 eggs collected. I collected over 700+ eggs a few months ago, and now i'm returning to that hunt. Gl to everyone on their hunts~!

    You can't SR eggs... Shiniess is determined when you pick the egg up...

    I'm taking a break on my MM Woobat hunt until I complete the Unova and Nat. Dex.
    Those charms would come in handy.
    In my White 2, I'm going to SR for a shiny Snivy and maybe I'll attempt a Badge Quest.

    Congratulations and/or good luck to everyone. My Budew Hunt is quickly approaching 500 eggs at which time it will upgrade to a Budew Quest or BQ for short.

    I haven't been hunting too much recently, but when I have, progress is pretty quick, even if my parent Pokemon aren't producing eggs as quickly as I'm hatching them. Anyway, I'm on 357 eggs, and just hoping that I'll be able to get a shiny this month, since I missed out in December. Good luck to everybody else!

    I don't think so. I believe everything is set when the man has it ready in Gen 5

    I was playing my friends Black 2 (because he is too lazy to finish Black Tower by himself)
    as I was heading over to the sports domes from Black city I find a shiny Pupitar (and didn't kill it or run this time )
    I traded it over to my game... I did get him the shiny Gible with an adamant nature after all.
    anyway, pics in a sec

    After using MM for a shiny Bulbasuar is Gen 5, I finally got one after 376 eggs. Today I did the MM again and one my second try I got a shiny Eevee! I feel so accomplished. Other times it took my more than 70 tries -_- Shines hate me.
