Congratulations on all new shinies.
Still grounded, yet my brothers can play whenever they want now.
Obvious reason why I want to go to college and get out of this hellhole I am forced to call my home.
So it's blatantly obvious that I haven't gotten to do any hunting.
Good news is, if I get ungrounded this weekend, I will end up with a new shiny rather quickly, since I have no school Tuesday, and half days on Wednesday and Thursday.
So anyways, good luck to all, and I thought that any shinies found in March count towards March Madness, but Storm kinda threw me off with the no participation thing. [/lost]

Peace out.

Chain after broken chain, I don't know whether I should say it's salvation or a slap in the face but I have another shiny Grimer at a chain of 6...

It's Adamant nature.

If I don't make it to 40 this time, I'm packing my bags and getting out of here. I'm getting hysterical. It keeps breaking on safe patches and I'm getting too impatient.

Not everyone has to participate in March Madness. With the way I'm shiny hunting lately, I don't want to try and get the most shinies this month.

Currently training my team for the Pokemon League, running around on One Island hoping for a random shiny to appear(hopefully shiny Ponyta but I'll be happy with anything really). I'm also still hunting for shiny Tangela in FireRed as well. I'm hoping that I can get a random shiny, I haven't gotten one since shiny Whismur in Sapphire on June 16/2008, so I think I'm due for a random one .

Congrats to new shinies.

Yay, I'm ungrounded! =P

So yeah, this morning, I flip open the GBA and encounter Registeel. I was tired, my GBA Lighting is bad, and I was in poor lighting as-is. And I thought I saw a shiny Registeel. I wasn't entirely sure, but I soft reset the game. I'm worried it may have actually been shiny though, but I can't be sure. I'm still going strong for it. 2,350 SRs. I've switched from Tangela to One Island to Level Up Marowak and Parasect for now, to Spore & False Swipe the shiny I choose to hunt to death. Moltres, here I come!
So not anything much going on, sadly. Hopefully you can all have some good luck, and that I wish upon you. Peace.

Why didn't you catch the Registeel to check it?


I'm SRing some more for Charmander while I wait to do stuff with Diamond and take a break from chaining on Pearl.

I'm contemplating dually hatching Magikarp on Diamond and my other Pearl, the one that gave me my shiny Munchlax. I think I'll just stick with Diamond though... I haven't tried much, but I hope it comes soon, that way I can go ahead and obtain the rest of the upgrades........


Good luck everyone

Hey, why not just fish and hope for the best? Doesn't it take MUCH less time? And it was in the morning; I had to get to school in a few minutes.

Anyways, good luck to all, and I hope I can get a shiny soon. My GBA has a charging issue, and my other one automatically SRs and Powers Off without warning. The same GBA Rayquaza shone on. I'm glad it didn't die right then.

Maybe because I don't want a crappy Quiet/Modest natured shiny Gyarados that won't get me anywhere. The fastest route isn't always the best route, and I have taken a liking to hatching.

Ah, I see your reasoning. Pretty good reasoning, too :P
So...
Over 40,000 Encounters and 1,200 SRs in my whole FireRed Cartridge history, and not a single shiny has EVER appeared. LAME.

So anyways, I'm up to about 3,000 SRs and Encounters for Registeel and Tangela, respectively. Hopefully I can get something new this weekend.
So that's it for now, and good luck to all.

Beat the E4 today, and I've spent most of the day running around on One Island hoping for a random shiny. I am up to 9000 encounters in this area, levelling my team to Lvl 100. I really do hope that a shiny appears before my whole team is Lvl 100, something that they are vastly approaching.

Also spent today hunting for shiny Tangela in my other FireRed, as well as doing a few resets for a few other shiny targets. Nothing has appeared to me in any of my games, so I am counting on either Tangela or a One Island Pokemon to shine soon.

I may also do some hunting in either Diamond or Pearl. I've had a shiny drought in these games since I hatched my shiny Qwilfish in November 2008. I'll cross my fingers and hope something shiny comes my way. Congrats to new shinies everyone.

My biggest priority right now is Magikarp. I think I hatched a paltry 15 last night.

I've put Abra on hold for the moment because I do not feel like chaining much and Alakazam wouldn't help anything for me right now. I need to spend the time hatching Magikarps...

I've done it twice now, so maybe I can hatch a third shiny..

Time is running out...

Yeah, I'm 80% sure that WAS a shiny Registeel. Unfortunately. But good luck to all shinies, and hopefully I can get something either tonight or tomorrow. I have no school tomorrow =D
Who want to have a race for shiny Heracross in FR?

Well, I'm at 700 hatched so far, hoping I get something before I reach the end of Box 17, and hopefully won't need to restock on Eggs!! -__-

Charmander will be my only target for March Madness (I need to get this out of the way already)!! Think of that list a couple of posts back as a "wish list"!! Those will be for after I hatch a Charmander!! D:

Good luck to all!! ^_^

From what we can tell, so far there hasn't been much "Madness"....

I'm dry as well.

I wanted to go ahead and try to get some shiny Abras, but my old DS Lite is practically broken. The Sleep Mode error is connected to the top screen because it's worsened so bad that I can screw up the top screen, make it looked glitched, and this can even make it freeze.

I do not want to lose any sort of shiny because of this, so now more white DS Lite for me.

So now my main objective, again, is Magikarp. I'm creeping up on 1,700 hatched now.




I need this Pokemon.


For the sake of my battling career... If I do not get it soon, I and my team have a bleak future.

Good luck everyone!

And all of the random targeting I've been doing for nothing , oh well maybe someone will shine soon.

People take my advice, take it easy, I know you must already know but sometimes,in times like this, people start frustrating.

Well see ya soon and good luck everyone.

Well I managed to EV train my shiny Charmander in FireRed today(I traded it to LeafGreen, where I could trade with Ruby, as I haven't fixed the network machine on One Island yet in FireRed, and got the Effort Ribbon ). I'm going to level her up a few more levels, then I'll go back to One Island on my shiny hunt.

I am also SRing for my secret shiny in Pearl as well. I reached 4000 SR's for this certain shiny, and I do hope it doesn't take as long as a few of my more recent targets took to shine(Regirock for one).

Congrats to new shinies everyone.

Spoiler:
Take care brother.
I'm getting better fast.

I also have a shiny Grimer now.

But I'm a little disappointed.

After all that trouble chaining in the rain, waiting for daylight, and finally getting to 40 (didn't screw up or miss-step once), I get a shiny Grimer then the chain breaks when I come out of it.
Now if that ain't a bummer I don't know what is.

And it has a Naive nature. =/

So I don't know what to do. I could try again, and I want to, but that's a lot of work. And since I've having to leave my DS open at night instead in sleep mode (still charging) the light disrupts my sleep.

It's hard to chain at night in the rain, too. Much easier during the day.
I really wish the chain didn't break, lol....


Good luck everyone, tonight I'm gonna SR for Charmander somemore to try and get my first entry for March Madness since Radar shinies don't count. (They count in my own little personal March Madness though! lol!)

edit:

I'm getting tired for people calling me cheater..... for having 800 Max Repels. =\

edit2:

Shiny Grimer Video

I'm gonna try and chain them again.
It's too bad you didn't record the immediate chain break in your video, as that would provide irrefutable proof that shiny patches can break chains on edges.

I lost an Absol chain on a shiny patch, the result of which denied me a female Jolly one with Super Luck. Prior to that, I didn't know the causes of edgebreaks and assumed that because every shiny patch is forced to contain your Pokémon that they can never break chains.

It's entirely that "remained quiet" message to blame.

Quote originally posted by DDD'SSCEPTILE:
I have a question.

Down at the bottom of the page it has the tags for the SHC.

One of them is midnight.

Why?
Lol. I put that there. Early on, we were considering calling ourselves the Midnight Shiny Hunters, because folks like rsgh5 (ryan) and SkinnyGreenMan found themselves shiny hunting mostly during the middle of the night. (I'm guilty of that, too.) I put it there as an homage to the good old days. *reminisces on SRing a shiny Porygon at the game corner*

What version are you using to do your SRs? If your answer is Emerald then you have your explanation. Emerald has a broken RNG that gives out the same numbers over and over again. I did somewhere in the range of 40,000 resets for shiny Treecko on Emerald before this was known. (I was even fully restarting my game every thousand, which was clearly not enough.)

I've been occupied with osu! mostly, though I am still SRing Dialga quite regularly.

My current count is 4861. Here's hoping for some March Madness to float my way.

It seems only a few are having a true Mad March. Good luck on all of your hunts, everybody!

I am expecting Tangela to shine today. I'm around 7,000 encounters with nothing, still. I also hope to avenge Registeel soon, but that'll be after Tangela shines. So with nothing else to say, good luck to all, and hopefully the rest of March has some Madness.

Wow, no new posts in a few days.

Well I have gotten squat on my shiny targets. Treecko won't shine in Sapphire, my secret target hides in Pearl and no random shinies have crossed my path on One Island in FireRed.

I have put my shiny Tangela hunt on hold for a bit, as I had too many targets to get at once, and I was stressing myself trying to get a shiny to appear. Going to hope that a shiny appears before Platinum comes out, as I will be playing that more than my other games.

Congrats to new shinies everyone.
