Congrats on that Snivy! :D

My Snivy is also bred. It has Glare on it. o3o

So cert shinies no longer count? This is probably for the best since there are so many of them now!

Shiny Watchog is awesome! It has that neon charm that made Seviper and friends so cool.
Other epic GenV shinies include Emboar, Gigalith, Chandelure, Druddigon, and Virizion. I also have my eyes set on Trubbish, Klink, Cofagrigus, and Volcarona.

If there's a St. Patrick's event going on, maybe Druddigon will be my first target. I just need to find a Jolly syncer.
I love Shiny Watchog. I plan to get one, hopefully with Illuminate so I can use it for hunting.

There is a St. Patrick's event going on. o:

Congrats!

I plan on hunting in the grass in White Forest, and the double grass on Route 18 when I can.

Awesome! That is really lucky, congrats! I think Snivy's whole evolution line looks really nice shiny. The blue suits it. Also congrats since it's your first gen 5 shiny. :D

Congrats! Did you continue your chain after as well? I haven't been so lucky as to catch a shiny before 40. I think that only happened once.

Good luck! Druddigon is pretty sweet looking as a shiny.

Does looking in the double grass up your chances for a shiny encounter? I haven't been too sure on this one for a while.. and ooo, White Forest hunting. That should be cool since there's exclusives in there. XD

Good luck on Chansey hunting!

So far I've hatched over a box and a half of Bagon and still no shiny. I'm going to keep trying after my DSi is finished charging. My sister hatched a shiny this morning in Diamond, so it kinda got my hopes up to try again later.

Good luck! Bagon would be an awesome shiny to get, especially for the St. Patrick's Day Challenge. Speaking of which:

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Wow, that's awesome! Congratulations on getting a shiny on your first egg! That's really good luck, "lol."

Good luck! Chansey's another good St. Patrick's Day pick, and it might end up being good for battle, too.

As I understand it, the odds in double grass are still 1/8192, but since you see more Pokemon, it just makes that go by faster. The mathematical odds are the same, but you're just getting to 8192 encounters in a smaller amount of time.

Congrats to your sister on her shiny!

I have a question about Zorua. I heard you can only get it if you have a Celebi (or Johto event trio and then breed), but does it have to be the specific event Celebi, or can it be any Celebi? I have a Journey Across America one from a few years ago (2006?), but I don't have any of the recent events. I want to be able to get Zorua, "lol." (Although it would probably help if I had B/W!) :D

I've just been SRing for Drifloon over the past couple of days. Most shiny ghost Pokemon look really cool, and Drifloon will be my third ghost! Maybe I could become a shiny ghost trainer or something like that in the future...

It's my second shining before 40 and I did continue the chain but it broke

The shiny chansey was a failure as well better luck next time

Hi everyone! I have updated the second post with new contest information. Since St.Patricks Day has passed, and no one has gotten a shiny that applies to that contest, there will be no winner.

I have added the Shiny Circuit to the second post, and remember that March Madness is still going on!
Spoiler:
PokeCommunity Shiny Circuit
Spoiler:
You must complete ALL of these challenges to win. PokeRadar can not be used, nor can RNG abuse. All other hunting methods are allowed. You do not have to complete them in order.

1. Prayer Challenge
- You must capture a shiny legendary Pokemon, in any game.
2. Dream Challenge
- You must hatch a Pokemon with a Dream World nature. If you don't have B/W you must hatch/catch a Pokemon that learns Hypnosis through level up.
3. Gender Challenge
- You must hatch/capture a Pokemon that can only be one gender.
4. Unique Challenge
- You must hatch/capture a Pokemon that has a typing that no other Pokemon has.
5. Mediavel Challenge
- You must hatch/capture a Steel or Dragon type.

If you catch a Pokemon that applies to two different challenges, you must pick which one you want it to apply for. One Pokemon cannot be used for two challenges.


March Madness
Spoiler:
You must find one of these shinies (or an evolutionary form of it), you do not need to find all, just one!

1st generation: Eevee
2nd generation: Natu
3rd generation: Wingul
4th generation: Chimchar
5th generation: Pansage



I think I am going to breed for a Shiny Darumakka with its Dream World ability. I just caught a Female Zen Mode Darmamitan in my English White, and a Male one in my Japanese Black. So I will use those to breed. Wish me luck!

Edit NEW SHINY:

HOLY JESUS! I hatched a Shiny Sassy Darumakka on the SIXTH egg! It has its Dream World ability too! AAAH!

Ah, I see now. Yeah, I just wasn't sure if it changed the rate of seeing one but it makes sense that the rate is the same, just that you happen to see more pokémon quicker. Thanks for answering my question!

Also, good luck on Drifloon! That's a shiny I'd been after for a while but gave up SR'ing. I like it's shinyness though. And maybe you should be a ghost shiny trainer, what other ghost have you caught shinywise?

As far as I know, the event has to be triggered with the Celebi that is specific for that event. Or like you said, with breeding from the shiny beast event with Zoroark. I'm pretty sure that's the only way, unfortunately. :/ I've seen a lot of people breeding them though, so I'm sure you'd be able to obtain one in a trade and breed some yourself.

Wow! On the sixth egg only! Congrats! That will make a fantastic part of your team, and the shiny color scheme is so nice. <3 I also like the nature so that's really cool!

Also, thanks for the new challenges, I'm looking forward to trying a few of them out.

I'm sorry the chain broke but at least you got one before it did. And hopefully next time you try for chansey you'll have a better outcome. Good luck on Drifloon as well!

Shiny Bagon was a miss. Over 7 boxes full - nearly 8 - and no shiny. I'm going to wait for a while to try again since I would love a shiny Salamance. I think for the March Madness I'm going to try for shiny Eevee again because I'd love a shiny Jolteon or Espeon. Quite possibly will SR for a shiny Virizion on Black as well.

Awesome! Would you like to race? Drifloon has a really awesome shiny form - I just love the bright yellow! There's such a huge contrast between the two Drifloons.
Good luck on your hunt!

Congratulations on your shiny...thing you got there! I have no idea what that is, but it's a shiny, so it's awesome! Congrats, Lando. It's always great to see another shiny for the club.

I like the contests! The shiny circuit should be fun! I just have one question - with the Hypnosis thing, can it already know Hypnosis or does it have to learn it later on, through level-up? I was thinking of searching for a shiny Ghastly in FR while training my Pokemon to face the Elite 4.

Thanks! It seems like the only way I would be able to get Zorua is through trading, which just isn't as fun. Maybe there'll be another event in the future.

My other shiny ghosts are Shuppet and Giratina. *remembers that he should be getting his banner back up soon* I was reading a list the other day of all the ghost Pokemon, and it seems pretty realistic because there aren't that many. Besides, all the ghost Pokemon are really cool, which I never realized until I began SRing for Drifloon. SRing mindlessly for hours every day really gets you thinking, doesn't it? "lol"

Good luck to everyone on their hunts! May we see another shiny soon!

If it's in the level up move set then it is fine. Moves that need to be taught through a move relearner also count. If you have to breed a move onto it, it doens't count.

Gastly is a Pokemon that is fine for that challenge.

Congratulations!! That's awesome!! Only 380 eggs? Wow, the SHC is turning on its luck machine!

I was looking through the list of all Pokemon with unique typing, and Drifloon/Drifblim are the only Pokemon with Ghost/Flying, so Drifloon will count for the circuit! *goes back to SRing Drifloon*

EDIT: Darn, I won't be able to get B/W/SS today. I guess I'll have to wait until next weekend.

Shinies are so cool!
I was playing Black yesterday, training my Gothorita so it could evolve into Gothitelle and that I could use it for the Battle Subway, and I ran into a Shiny Gothorita! I mean, first of all what are the chances of me running into a random shiny, and second of all, what are the chances of it being a Gothorita, just the same Pokemon which I just so happened to be training? XD;

I don't have pictures, but I could probably get a picture somehow if you guys wanted me to.

Got a NEW SHINY everybody knows Ash's noctowl from the episodes right, well now I got my own yes I have a SHINY NOCTOWL :D. I'm superhappy with this one, when i saw the shiny patch i just couldn't believe it I was chaining and thought that it could take a while but at a chain of 11 the patch appeared. I caught it with a quick ball and couldn't stop looking at it, that was great way to start the night :D

EDIT:
Got a SHINY MACHOKE OMG second shiny in 24 hours yes yes yes :D :D

Pics will follow

That's awesome! Congratulations!

Don't worry about the pictures; we believe you! But if you want to show us how cool it looks, we'd be more than happy to take in its shinyness. I can't blame you for wanting to show off an awesome shiny.

I know your question was rhetorical, but just to let you know how rare your shiny was:

1/8192 * 1/649 = 1/5,316,608 chance of finding the Pokemon you were training

Or, if you were specifically looking for that shiny:

1/8192 * probability of that Pokemon appearing on that route

I don't know what that Pokemon's frequency on that route is, but they're usually between 5% and 20%, so we'll go with 12.5%:

= 1/65,536 if you were specifically looking for that particular shiny

That's awesome! Nice job getting a really rare shiny, "lol!"

Two shinys in one day?? Wow, that's incredible!! You are one lucky shiny hunter, DarkTorchic! I'd be ecstatic if I could get just one shiny in a day, "lol!"

By the way, I saw your post in the other club, and ours is much better. I'm a member of both, too, but this one is where all the fun is! :D

Hunting Progress:

Friday: ~5 hours for Drifloon
Saturday: ~8 hours for Drifloon

Yeah, no shiny yet. I'm probably over 8000 SRs by now, or at least it seems like it!

Right now, I'm SRing for Hitmonlee since I left my DS with Diamond in another room and don't feel like walking over to get it, "lol."

By the way, I saw your post in the other club, and ours is much better. I'm a member of both, too, but this one is where all the fun is! :D

Hunting Progress:

Friday: ~5 hours for Drifloon
Saturday: ~8 hours for Drifloon

Yeah, no shiny yet. I'm probably over 8000 SRs by now, or at least it seems like it!

Right now, I'm SRing for Hitmonlee since I left my DS with Diamond in another room and don't feel like walking over to get it, "lol."
Thanks I couldn't believe it either 2 shiny's one day but the day isn't over yet I also think this club is better it isn't so restricted as the other one. Good luck on the hitmonlee and get on your feet and go get your ds :D

I caught it with a quick ball and couldn't stop looking at it, that was great way to start the night :D

EDIT:
Got a SHINY MACHOKE OMG second shiny in 24 hours yes yes yes :D :D

Pics will follow
Congratulations, those are very cool shinies! I hope you get more of the ones you want :]

Probably not. You might be nearing 1000

Needless to say, I did NOT catch shiny Druddigon. I just finished beating N on White. The honeymoon's over, so now it's time to shiny hunt! I'm SRing Tepig on Black, and fitting in some Kyogre multi-SRing when I have my second DS handy.

Howdy, chaps! *Adjusts monocle*

...Ahem. No luck thus far, here. I've been running left and right, left and right, left and right (feels like breeding all over again), getting a boatload of cave rare spawn "patch" stuff (gems, gems everywhere - some evolution stones too) but no trace of a Shiny, thus far. Don't ask me for a Boldore count, I don't keep formal track of numbers and haven't really looked at the game's total played time since I started.
There's a nice amount of risk to it, since it's not the only Pokémon that shows up in there - I might choke a Gurdurr if I see one as Shiny (wouldn't mind Woobat, maybe even a Cryogonal)!

In any case, nice Shiny spawn (and catch!) rates for you all, there! Keep on goin' and see ya around.

Oh that reminds me, you never did get that KFC, did you? With enhanced Masuda odds, you really should!

Gigalith is pretty friggin' awesome. I like the fact that it lives in multiple places: it gives me a chance to find different awesome shinies on the way to catching it. As in, there's a whole ladder of caves I can work my way down if I find something else. I'll start in Chargestone and hope for a shiny Klink, then go to that funny one you need Surf for, then finally the low-level one.

Also it pays to catch shinies in their unevolved form this generation, since it fills more of your Shiny Dex!

200 Tepigs. 70 Kyogres since last count.

Congrats to all the shiny catchers/hatchers so far! Quite a few cool shinies you guys obtained. Good luck to everyone else still hunting! Hope you see your shinies soon!

My progress isn't much to look at since I haven't got any of the shinies I was looking at over the weekend. I am pretty sure I hatched over 300 solosis eggs using Masuda Method on Black and not one in sight yet. So, I took a break and started breeding Oshawott and still, no luck after probably 5 hours so I stopped for a while. I'll probably try again for Oshawott though I really would like a shiny Solosis. I haven't been breeding constantly, just playing on and off since I was really busy this weekend. So, here's hoping! *crosses fingers* I'll probably get back into the swing of breeding tonight and trying yet again.
