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!

Current Contests:

The 2015 Yearly Quest: Build a Region!

That's right, Shiny Hunters!! It's now 2015, and 2015 is the year of region-building!! You get to create your own land of shiny wonders, inhabited by whatever shinies you find!! This will be a little different from previous Quests: there will be tiers to further test your shiny skills!!

Tier I:

1) Find three shiny Pokemon who could serve as starters. One must be a Grass-type, one must be a Fire-type, and one must be a Water-type. All three must have three evolutionary stages.
2) Find a shiny legendary!

Tier II:

Well, a region with just starters and a legendary is pretty small, isn't it? Maybe just a small island or something. Your region is probably one of those tiny Articuno/Zapdos/Moltres islands with a bag of starter Pokeballs on it! Let's fill it in with some more Pokemon to create a route!!

3) Find a shiny Normal-type with one evolution. It must be able to learn an HM move!
4) Find a shiny Water-type!

Tier III: The Forest!

5) Find a shiny Bug-type with three evolutionary stages!
6) Find another shiny Bug-type! This one can have as many or as few evolutions as you'd like.
7) Find a shiny Grass-type!

Tier IV: The River!

8) Find a shiny Water-type!
9) Find a shiny Grass-type!
10) Find a shiny Ground-type!

Tier VI:

You now have a good region, replete with a route and a river and Pokemon to dwell there! But now it's time to make your region something of your own...specialize your region! Add something that gives it some character!

Tier VI Challenge: Find 5 shinies of the same type!

Tier VII:

Stones have washed up on the shore...

Tier VII Challenge:

1) Find a shiny with a Mega Evolution!
2) Find a shiny that can evolve via Leaf, Water, or Fire Stone!
3) Find a shiny that can evolve via Sun, Dawn, or Dusk Stone!

Tier VIII:

Make your region the best! Build the myth; create the legend!

Tier VIII Challenge:

1) Create a shiny legendary trio of three legendaries of different types or three legendaries of the same type!
2) Create a legendary duo of two legendary Dragon- or Flying-type shinies!

At the end of the year, we'll see who has the best region! Feel free to add your own personal challenges by creating sidequests such as caves or oceans!

The July Monthly Quest: The Beach!!

To complete this Quest, you must find three shinies:

1) A Water-type shiny!
2) A Ground-type shiny!
3) A Flying-type shiny!

Completing this Quest within the time allotted will give your region official recognition of having a beach resort, hopefully promoting tourism and encouraging more shinies to migrate to your region!

Chained and Safari Pokemon are not eligible to count for the Quest.

The contest lasts until midnight EDT on August 7th, 2015.

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.
