Ok the club is already known by much

but ill state some rules here

1. Have full respect between all members of the club; any insult or disrespect will result in an infraction.

2. To join, all you need to do is post! In your first post, please list the shinies you own and what you're currently hunting.

3. You don't need any shinies to join! The only requirement is that you look for shinies, at least some of the time.

4. Please don't lie. Having more shinies doesn't earn you extra status in the club, but compulsive lying could earn you an infraction. We can tell.

5. All members of the club are completely equal. However, some members hold duties to make sure that the club is as fun as it can be:

FOUNDERS - These are the people who came up with the idea of creating a Shiny Hunters Club. It's thanks to them that we have this thread for discussion with our fellow hunters! The club founders wield absolute power and can help out the club in any way they see fit.

OWNER - The owner watches over the club and makes sure that it's a fun place for members to talk about shiny hunting. He or she can give infractions, promote members, create rules, and create contests in which members can participate.

CO-OWNERS - Co-owners wield the same power as the owner and make sure that the club is a fun place to be; however, they cannot promote or demote members. If the owner has not posted in 3 months or more, the co-owners will decide who will become the new owner.

RETIRED CO-OWNERS - These are great shiny hunters of days past who have really helped the club. They are "dormant" co-owners and may reclaim their co-owner status upon their return.

6. Founders, owners, and co-owners may only use their power when absolutely necessary. The SHC is a forgiving club, and we understand that some members might make mistakes or forget a rule. For this reason, 3 infractions are required before a member receives a six month ban; 2 more infractions after the ban will result in a permanent ban.

Infractions expire after 30 days. Once an infraction has expired, it's as if it never happened.

7. If the owner goes 3 months without posting, ownership is transferred to the co-owner who has had at least one post for the most consecutive months. If the two longest-active co-owners are tied for the same amount of months, ownership is transferred to whoever's post came first in that month.

8. No one is above the rules. Founders, owners, and co-owners can receive infractions just like everyone else.

I don't want to look aggressive or too formal, but we genuinely love hunting shinies and want to make sure that everyone is at liberty to discuss freely, without fear of being insulted or excluded.

If anyone disagrees with any rule, feel free to post your concerns and we'll be more than happy to talk about it.

And last but certainly not least, the most important rule of all:

9. Have fun!

Now go and hunt some shinies!

Current Contests:


Throughout the year, we'll try to get as far through the Pokedex as we can and see how many shinies we can catch in order. We'll start with Bulbasaur, then move to Charmander, then Squirtle, etc. 1/8192 and 1/4096 shinies all count as well as any MM shinies, but 6th gen Pokemon will have to be caught twice, either twice by the same member or by two different members. Let's see who can fill up the most entries for the SHC Dex by the end of the year!

Current Dex Status:

[001] Bulbasaur - Razer302 (February 18th, 2014)
[004] Charmander - Kirozane (March 25th, 2014) / Kirozane (March 27th, 2014)
[007] Squirtle - Kirozane (April 3rd, 2014) / Champion Lunis (May 22nd, 2014)
[010] Caterpie -

The 2014 Yearly Quest!

1) Find a shiny of every type!

With the addition of Fairy Pokemon in X and Y, there are now 18 different types of Pokemon...let's try to get shinies of all of them!

To complete this portion of the Quest, you must catch shinies representing all 18 types. Dual-types will count for both types they are, so you can complete the Quest with anywhere from 9 to 18 shinies for this part. Pokemon who change types during evolution may be counted for either type, but one specific stage of evolution must be picked and and that Pokemon's type(s) will be the ones counted. Shinies whose types were changed to Fairy but caught in an earlier generation may be counted for either Fairy or their original type.

2) Find two shinies for the SHC 2014 Shiny PokeDex!

3) Complete two monthly quests!

The standard weighting is in place: it's fine if you use the shiny charm in B2W2, but you'll have to get 3 of them! Two GenVI shinies will have to be caught to complete a part of the Quest, but the two shinies may be different.

These can be done in any order. The shinies must be obtained by yourself, and no chaining, Friend Safaris, or hacking is allowed. Good luck and have fun!

Thanks to Paulthagerous for the Yearly Quest idea!

The September Monthly Quest: Angels vs. Dodgers!!!

Happy September! This is the last month of regular season baseball in the MLB, and the two Los Angeles teams - the Angels and the Dodgers - are both leading their respective divisions with about a month left to play. Pick a side and collect shinies for your team to determine which LA team will be given the luck of the shiny hunters!!

To complete the quest, you must select one of the two options below. Standard weighting applies.

Option LAA:

1) Find a Flying-type shiny!
2) Find a shiny fish!
(Naming it Mike is optional.)

Option LAD:

1) Find a shiny with a base Speed stat of over 110!
2) Find a blue shiny!

May the best team win! We'll see which side has more winners when the contest concludes at midnight EDT on October 1st, 2014.

Good luck and have fun!

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions for the club, feel free to post them for discussion or PM one of the owners or co-owners and we will be more than willing to discuss implementing new features or contests to the club!

Shiny FAQ

Q: What are shiny Pokemon?

A: Shiny Pokemon are simply Pokemon colored differently which have a 1/8192 chance of appearing anywhere a wild Pokemon can be obtained from Generation II on. The difference may
be barely noticeable, or drastic.

Q: In what games do shiny Pokemon appear in?

A: Shiny Pokemon have a 1/8192 chance of appearing in any game other than Pokemon Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow. Note that they do appear in Red and
Green’s remakes, FireRed and LeafGreen.

Q: Are shiny Pokemon more powerful than normal Pokemon?

A: No. Shiny Pokemon have the exact same stats as a normal Pokemon.

Q: Is there any way to make shiny Pokemon appear more easily?

A: Yes. Starting in Generation IV, the Masuda method, used by putting two Pokemon from a different language game into the day-care and breeding them, obviously included as an extra incentive to use the GTS, will increase the odds to 1/1639 in Generation IV, and 1/1366 in Generation V. Note that to do this the two Pokemon can NOT be from the same foreign language, nor can any one of them be from an in-game trade. In G/S/C if at least one of the parents is a shiny, the odds are 1/64. The Odd Egg you receive in Crystal has a 14% chance of being a shiny, 50% in the Japanese version.

Q: Will breeding two shiny Pokemon have a higher chance of hatching a shiny?

A: No. There is no way to increase the chances other than the Masuda
method, except for in G/S/C, detailed above.

Q: Does a dry internal battery in Ruby and Sapphire affect shiny Pokemon?

A: Yes. If you get the message “The internal battery has run dry. The game can be played, but clock-based events will no longer occur” when starting your game, you can no longer obtain shinies by soft resetting the game. You can still obtain shinies by encountering, however.

Q: What is the supposed “Broken RNG” in Pokemon Emerald?

Essentially, The RNG in Emerald is set from the beginning of when you start your game, so you'd have to pick a whole new character, ID number, etc. each time you reset because the sole factor in the RNG calculation is amount of time since you turned on your game. You'll see a certain set of characteristics (shinyness, nature, etc.) for every Pokemon you see 1 second after turning on the game, another for every Pokemon you see 2 seconds after you turn on the game, etc. This means that it's possible to hunt in Emerald in the wild as long as you leave your game plugged in and just run around in the grass endlessly.
