And to inspire some other discussions, what would you do if you were to find a shiny while in the safari zone? I think i would throw as many balls as possible and pray lol ;D. Or smash my DS into thousands of tiny pieces....
I stopped counting after 4096, but I started on January 28th, 2011 and found shiny Drifloon on June 7th, 2011. I had a lot of other hunts in between, though, so I'm sure you'll find yours much faster if you focus on that one hunt.

Oh dear, that's one of the scariest things for a shiny hunter!! I actually ran into a shiny Bibarel in the Safari Zone once, and I just used every turn to throw balls. I was terrified during the whole battle, but I was incredibly lucky and managed to catch it!!

Welcome to the SHC, arxcrusader! Good luck on your hunts - I'm hunting the Johto starters, too!

As for advice, just remember never to give up! Keep hunting and you will find the shinies you seek.

EDIT: also can I join???
Could you please tell us what shinies you have before you join? You just need to be honest with us; it's totally okay if you don't have any yet. The fun about shiny hunting is hunting shinies! Just let us know what you have and be honest about your hunts, and we'll be more than happy to have you join.

Another question for you guys, do you ever use your shiny pokemon in game play or evolve them if they can evolve?
Awesome, congrats! I usually don't play with my shinies because I'd like to be able to EV them eventually to use on competitive teams, although I did play through FireRed with my shiny Bulbasaur.

So would that make the eventual shiny Ralts not legit or would it still be legit?
Well, it's okay to hunt any way you want in your games, and we're not going to tell you how you can hunt or not. But for things to count for the Quests, there are stricter rules about legitimacy, and we don't count any shinies obtained through external devices, since you're artificially increasing your odds.
