Yesterday at 4:43 p.m., while waiting to go back to work:


My second shiny Registeel appeared in Emerald .

After a fairly long battle, with me afraid I'd have to use the Masterball(had to go back to work), I successfully caught it in an Ultra Ball. Like my shiny Torchic and 2 shiny Electrode, shiny Registeel has a Careful nature.

It didn't take too long to appear, it was probably less than 100 SR's when I got it(thank you Emerald RNG ) I saved the game at least 3 times.

More pictures:
Old faithful DS Lite, no cheats
DS Lite 2

Shiny Registeel, Careful nature
Stats

I'm now back to Regirock, crossing my fingers that it'll appear soon, so I can finish the Regi trio. I'm also SRing for Giratina, nothing after 58 days of searching .

I'm having some serious troubles with the SR trick for Emerald, since that damn sign always pops down, breaking my 1/200 chain...
GL all...

Well, we all have experienced a wide variety of SR amounts.

From somewhere around 100 I believe, to over 20,000, or maybe 50,000, depending on whatever Dark Steelix had said it took him.

So it can be any time, but it's most commonly within 20,000 resets that they are found. 20,000 is even a stretch, most people say within 10,000, but I went 12,000 without any shinies...

So it could be ANYTHING.

I'm quickly sprinting through Diamond trying to SR for a shiny Dialga and then Uxie, moar shinies for me!

My very first shiny Giratina took me 38000+SR's to get, Heatran over 62000 SR's but my shiny Squirtle came at 35 SR's, so as you can see, you can get a shiny at any number.

My shiny Giratina I'm hunting in Platinum is over 62000 SR's. I'm usually SRing for other shiny targets as I SR for Giratina, but it doesn't want to shine . I plan on leaving Giratina when the Darkrai event rolls around, unless I need the National Dex to go to the island, which is probably the case.

Nice shinies. If you've noticed you have to wait til a Co-Owner approves you....

But, uh, that may be a while.
You can hang around anyway until you're officially approved.

I've never played Pokemon Ranger. It just doesn't interest me enough. So I don't know what to tell you.

My quickest was my first shiny, Beldum, in under 100 resets. I roughly estimate it was around 80. Most? Totodile. Probably around 32,000 resets. In a week. Yeah. I went crazy...

But most and never gotten? Charmander. Too many resets to count. I gave up for now.

That whole 62,000 thing makes me choke a little over Magikarp. I hope I can get it soon, however...

I have a bit of a meeting going on. I still have a little ways to go, but I hope to join the party soon....

Good luck everyone and remember to rumble that rumble.

Isn't the most it can possibly take 64,000 something resets?

Anyways, I'm trying to hop through Diamond to get Dialga, then Uxie so...
GL with that damn Giratina!

Like RHYP FYARS HIS LAZARS AT IT AND BLOWS IT UP.

And then decimates quite a few Buizel too.

See that Slowpoke in my sig? I'm trying to get that.


Last night I got the chain to 20. Today after about 15 minutes of looking for good grass, it breaks.

Now I can't even find the things and when I do they break at like 3. And that time when it broke, it was perfect grass selection. 4 of a kind, farthest away, not touching a wall.



Life is cruel.... Maybe I should just retire. =s

Lost my chance at a shiny Giratina in Platinum, thanks to my stupid thumb. I have an elastic holding down the L-R buttons, so I had my thumb near the Start-Select ones, for easy access. I glance down and see shiny Giratina too late and my thumb pressed down on reflex, SRing the game.

I'm totally upset about this, I could have had Giratina today and I could have started SRing for Darkrai tomorrow. Now I just gotta hope the RNG is nice to me and another shiny one appears. I'm hoping that its similar to if you got a shiny Starly at the beginning of the game when SRing for a starter, but I doubt that.

Thanks. I'm unsure how the RNG works, I don't really bother with it.

I'm still SRing for Giratina, but no new shiny one popped up, I doubt it will. Pretty mad with myself for resetting over it, but its all I can do. Meh, I think I'll start the game again, I don't think Giratina is going to shine anytime soon.

Actually, can't you just download the Wonder Card for the Members Pass, and then save again in front of Tina, and go and get it later?

And you should just spend a few days more SRing, just in case your game loves you for going so hard for it.

Sorry again :'(

Wow that sucks. I have never managed to SR a shiny. They never seem to like me.

Didn't do much last night. I am playing ranger 2. I only play it for the events. The actual game itself is poor. Can't remember the name of the person that wanted it but if you don't want events then there isn't really any need to get it as the game is very boring.

Well if any of you have Platinum, be sure to download the event for Darkrai, as it has started. I'll be rushing through the game and SRing for my legit shiny Darkrai. I have to trade a Timid synchronizer and hope that the shiny one has that nature.

I have that game how do I get the event? I didn't know about it. I want to SR for it.

You download it through Mystery Gift, its really easy, you need the actual game to get it.

Well I downloaded the pass, I'm hoping to get there by tonight, must get shiny Darkrai.

Good luck on the darkrai, i just started soft resetting for it myself, hopefully we'll both get it quickly.

You guys are all so lucky, I don't have even a working DS.

Mine sucks, so I get bored and drop kick it and all that all the time, it freezes by touch, and I never did anything to it, so I decided to take my anger out on it now

But I'm hoping for a new DS for X-Mas, along with Platinum, so I can SR for a shiny Darkrai and Shaymin as well.

Hopping through Diamond, these bastards love to piss me off and cause stall wars...

Only on Fantina. God, please let the manufacturers of the DS suffer a painful death, for wasting so much of my time.

lawl

So here's the rundown:

SR for a shiny Dialga
Move on to Uxie
Here is where I need some opinions: Should I go after an Azelf? And after, if yes, should I go for Mesprit?
And after whatever Pixie, I will move on to tweak it up, to SR for a shiny Shaymin and Darkrai in English.
GL all, 'specially with the Rais you two.

Ow That has to hurt, I'm always afraid something like that's gonna happen to me.

But one thing's for certain, I'm not retiring anytime soon.



Video coming soon. Shiny grass at 39 like always for me, and then I got another one today. I plan to at least get 12.


I caught that thing at 4 AM.
