Can anyone give me any tips on how to find and catch shinies? So far all of mine have been from random encounters.
Welcome to the club! Another popular form of shiny hunting is soft reseting: save in front of a starter/legendary/Pokemon that's given to you and check its summary to see if it's shiny. If not, hit L, R, Start, and Select at the same time, and it'll restart your game to where you last saved. Do that until you have a shiny!

Good luck!

latios- i can get you an axew that likes to thrash and should have good speed ivs (most of mine have had over 25) as well if you want.

Oh, event doesn't stop when anybody gets it? Oh well, good to have more than 1 winner if that becomes the case anyways

And I have another secret target now... whether it be RE, SR, or MM egg hatching.

Are you hunting on Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald? If Emerald, stop! You might never get it. If Ruby or Sapphire, keep going! I'm sure you'll get a shiny soon.

Yeah, there was a bit of a mix-up with the contest. Landorus hadn't posted or even logged on to PC in over 25 days, so I wasn't really expecting him to update the contest. I made one, but I didn't see that he had edited the second post with a new one, which leaves two right now. Landorus's is the official one.

Sorry about that.

It's whoever gets the most. Say two people each get 1 and another person gets 2: the person with 2 would be the winner.

For anyone with a Japanese Black and White, you can go through Mystery Gift and get a Shiny Golurk and Shiny Hydreigon!


Changed my hunt to White Forest because so few people hunt there..also got the Golurk and Hydreigon.

I am just walking around in there now to see what Pokemon exist there for me. So far I have encountered:

Magby, Mareep, Wurmple, Happiny, Slakoth, Hoppip, Bellsprout, Aron, Ralts, and Azurill.

What's nice about this is that I can keep track of my encounters through my Trainer Card. :D I also have my lucky charm in my party (Shiny Exploud.)

Thanks for the offer, but I just got one that has a good speed IV today on one that is also Jolly and has Mold Breaker, which is what I'm looking for in nature and ability. It's not a perfect 31 though, so I'll still hatch some more. So far I've hatched 63.

2Cool4Mewtwo: Sorry about that. I didn't see that Landorus posted a different list compared to what G-Money posted.

Since there was some confusion on our part, the Pokemon from either of our lists will count for the contest.

Is that Black and White where you can see how many encounters you've done? Because I can't see/find it.

Go to your Trainer Card. Click the "<--->" button at the bottom. Touch and hold onto where it says "Adventure Started" and drag up.

You've won a club sponsored shiny Pokemon hunt, although this isn't as nice as the shiny itself, it's still worth giving. Enjoy!

Entered.

You don't need to do a set number of encounters, just as long as you alternate routes it's fine.

Right now I am in the Route 1 double encounter area.

I've decided to do this with fire red, 300 encounters per route/cave.
starting with route 1:

x150


yeah, funnily enough I got the same amount of both pokes. no shiny just yet, though.
seen as I've not been doing much, here's route 2:

Spoiler:
x148
x121
x16
x15


once again, no shinies just yet.

Right now I am at 550 encounters on my Pokemon White. I've decided to do 150 encounters per route, by the time I have gone into every cave, route, and other places with Pokemon I would have seen 6600 Pokemon. Then, if I don't get a shiny, I will move to my Leaf Green version and go through there.

I am currently in the Dreamyard double encounter grass. While I was on Route 2, I discovered that Wynaut were swarming which made it last a lot longer because I couldn't run. I had to kill them. But I did catch me a nice Level 50 Wynaut. I was hoping I'd catch one of those shiny, I love them, Wynaut is one of my favorite Pokemon.

I have 50 encounters in the Dreamyard. 150 on both Route 2 and 1. I also included the 200 I already did in White Forest. Out of all the Pokemon I will probably see, there are 3 that I want the most. Those are:

I'm not getting this... So you have to encounter certain number of pokemon on each route? to get shiny from it? or something else...?

P.S. - Bolded part. You might want to fix that

You go through each route and do a set amount of encounters (that you can pick yourself) on any game until you find a Shiny.

I'm doing mine in White. I started on Route 1, did 150 encounters. Went to Route 2, did 150 encounters. Went the Dreamyard and did some. So on and so forth.

I'm going to do this in my HeartGold version with 250 encounters per route down from Route 48 to Route 1. never found shinies from trying to do it from random encounter... (all of them were from dumb luck, when I never thought about it)
