    Oh really? I thought I came up with the name myself, but now that I think about it I realize that I've seen the name before... It's a great name, hope you don't mind that I used it!

    I'm kinda surprised I managed to find three shinies on the same file (without the shiny charm)... usually I only get one and that will be it until I start over.
    If I manage to put an effort and get the charm, I'm wondering what my luck would be like.

    I've switched my hunts, decided to do some MM.
    That's usually how it went with my last shinies...
    I encounter them, then I MM them, then repeat.
    Well at least on my W2 anyway.

    Black 2's being difficult with me.

    I've started a MM hunt in W2. I'm hoping for a shiny modest roselia. Hopefully it shines soon

    Congrats everybody on your recent shinies!

    Made a bit of progress today, getting up to 2960 REs above Union Cave, and I should be at 3,000 by the time I go to sleep. Slowly progress is better than no progress I suppose.

    But anyways, good luck to all of you on your hunting!

    The deino hatching is still ongoing. I got a female dream world dratini through the GTS, though, so I'll be able to work on shiny dratini eventually as well.

    Hi Guys,

    I haven't been on for a while but I was browsing the thread at the start of the year, and seeing everyone get amazing shinies and so many of them, I thought Id pick up my hunt again.

    Well, last night, after 1054 eggs, my second shiny Squirtle appeared!

    So now theres just one last Squirtle and I will have all 9 of the Kanto starters and their evos.

    Good luck to everyone on their hunts and hang in there.

    Does anyone know if the kyurem you can find at the giant chasm in B/W2 can be shiny? I was going to start hunting for it today but I didn't know if it was like Zekrom and Reshiram and I didn't know where else to ask...

    Yes, it can be shiny the second time you encounter it. And indeed the first time, but who wants an uncatchable shiny?!

    I'm honored you're using the name. Thank you and Congratiez on Charmander and Cottonee to both of you~*

    I'm still SRing in HG#2, SS#2, and SS#3 for a shiny starter I'm not keeping track, but I'm hoping for a Chikorita or Cyndaquil to shine, but I'll take anything to end this nearly 1 month drought lol

    Congratiez on the other recent shinies, and GL everybody~!

    Hope you get your shinies soon! Decided to go for kyurem as I may be able to use multiple DS's (?) and that will make it a bit easier to hunt.
    Good luck to everyone!

    Ohhh yes! After only 5 days of SRing shiny Landorus appears!

    http://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/...psd6854728.jpg

    I was not expecting it to shine this soon but then I became a little nervous because I didn't know if my Adamant sync worked. So I sent in Breloom, put it to sleep and then false swiped it down to 1 Hp. After only 4 Ultra balls it was mine! Now was time to check its nature... I was definitely going to SR over it if it didn't have the right nature but to my surprise it was Adamant!! GOML@!# YASS! Lol, really happy I didn't have to keep hunting for it. So now I'm not sure where to hunt next but I have a few ideas..

    Magnet Pull for shiny Mawile in Challengers Cave. Woobat or Sableye would be nice too.
    Magnet Pull for Shiny Bronzong in Abundant Shrine.. pretty risky since I already have 4 shinies in this area.
    Fish at route 4 for shiny Krabby, Clampearl or Luvdisc
    White Forest, not sure what Pokemon will be there until I fill it up.

    So what should I go with!? And my hunt for Tyrogue is closing in on 2000 eggs! >.< Really hope it doesn't take too much longer. Gratz on the shinies lately and good luck everyone, especially TheMaster327 on that Ducklett!

    After hunting for shiny magby, I still haven't find him. I just found a Docile Shiny Growlithe... =\ I might stop trying for shiny Magby. it's only a CH anyway. Before I continue to get the shiny charm on my white, I want 30 shiny pokémon in my box.

    Oh right I did 702 RE's for the growlithe.

    Success!

    After 491 eggs, a shiny female Ducklett hatched! Thanks to the Power Lens and Everstone, she is Rash natured and has 31 IVs in Special Attack. I was hoping for it to have Hydration as its ability, but it has Keen Eye instead. I'm happy regardless, as I figured having the nature, characteristic, and ability all correct was a longshot when I began the hunt.

    Congratulations on the Growlithe, Landorus, Squirtle, and anything else I might have missed. Best of luck to everyone else!

    Congrats on the Squirtle, Landorus, Growlithe, Ducklett and anyone else I've missed!

    I'm up to either 5220 or 5320 in my hunt.....unfortunately my phone has broken and taken my notes with it and I can't remember which number I'm on....I guess unless I remember I'll just have to go with 5270 as it's in the middle....I don't really like saying it unless I'm sure though..... :/

    Also, I accientally ran from a Pokemon without looking at and now I'm wondering 'what if that was the Shiny Pokemon?!' Argh, it's gonna bother me for ages..... >.<

    ^Don't worry doodlecloud, it has happened to me a lot when running from Abra and Bidoof in my last completed hunt. They were irritating...

    In other news, schoolwork has clamped my backside. But I did get some time just now to get my shiny card finally finished! I like it, pile of balls and Fantina with a shiny Shedinja...me likes it.

    Showing off aside, I hit 1,150 REs not too long ago, but anything before 4,000 would be great. Congrats to everyone on the shinies, especially Landorus CoD! I rarely see people get that shiny, so credits to you for grabbing one.

    I've caught a random shiny Boldore a few days ago. That makes it 2 random shinies in 1 month.


    Number of Genwunners = 100
    Number of people accused of being a Genwunner = 100 000 000 000 000 000

    After some serious 'theory-mon'-ing earlier, I've decided that I want to get a shiny Kingdra and Togekiss to go with my shiny Eelektross - there are probably better team options, but I've always wanted a Togekiss. But I don't have a Togepi, Togetic or Togekiss on Black 2 at present, so for simplicity's sake am trying to get a shiny Kingdra first!

    It's taken all day to set up a Horsea with good IVs to go with my Seadra I got off GTS (which just happened to have 31 IV in HP and SpDef, wahey), so it's just a matter of gathering and hatching now. I'll assume it's gonna take longer than 45 eggs this time though!

    You lot seem to be finding loads of shinies through random encounters; I haven't found shinies randomly at a consistent rate like that ever! =P

    I have never tried that actually but I think it might be a cool CH in the future, to hunt pokemon that you can only get with fishing
