Congrats on the new shinies!

I'm sorry to hear about the lost Smeargle, Keruso. Hopefully it will shine for you again.

This week's random hunt is... Horsea!

I checked the owner, and sure enough...

It's good to have another legend back.
It makes me want to Masuda things but I have so much other stuff I need to prepare first. The first of which being migrating my wi-fi profile to my 3DS, if that's possible.

I'm keeping my SP in my laptop bag now, so I should be able to SR Kyogre whenever.
lol thanks. And that video was crazy. Imagine my reaction when I encountered the glitch for the first time... XD

Anyways, I'm pretty sure you can transfer your wifi stuff to your 3DS the same way you would with a normal DS, through download play transfer, if you've ever done it before.

Slash? Are you kidding me?? x.x You should be more prepared than that, let alone using a critical hit move such as Slash, that's just asking for trouble. At the very least get a Heart Scale and teach it Scratch or something, or even Cut, or use a different Pokemon altogether.
I hate seeing shiny Pokemon go uncaught. That sucks man.

A quick technique I would use if I didn't have anything else would to be to catch a Magnemite/Magneton and use Thunder Wave & Sonicboom on them. Set damage and a status. My favorite has always been at least a Sleep move, and False Swipe if I have it but that's hard to come by in 3rd Gen. The aforementioned can get it done though.

I hope things clear up for you and you'll have more time to hunt soon. Congrats on all those shinies!
Yeah, definitely those two as well. Thank you!


I'm playing through LeafGreen now, not sure if I mentioned that or not. I've made it up to facing Surge but I'm training my Pokemon at the moment. I might try a few more 3rd gen games, but I have too much going on still to do anything serious.

Vigoroth actually has Cut and after killing the Shiny, tried using Cut on some of the ones that came across and got them down to the red, but, seeing as both Pokes are at about the same level range, i wasnt expecting a Crit Hit 1HKO. i could switch him around with my Electrode whose got Sonicboom and Flash and take him on that way. I got a False Swiper in my 4th gen games just for this type of occasion when i do get a shiny

The first post has been updated!! Welcome to the 21st century 2011, post 1!!!!!!! It's been over 5 years, but we now have updated rules, regulations, and shareholders. Buy stock in SHC!! :cer_boogie:

The "Initiate Golden Age" button would definitely help people buy in, but the button is grayed out. Apparently, we can't press it when there are 4 posts per week. :/

Haha, I won't do a bit of damage to any shiny at all! I'm always terrified that I'll faint it, so I just throw balls from the first move, "lol." I don't think I've ever actually used a move on a shiny other than a Sleep-inducer!

Using a Quick Ball at the start of a battle is a really good option for catching a shiny Pokémon, or any Pokémon. I used a Quick Ball to catch my shiny Audino back in June.

Found a shiny litwick while visiting the only place where they appear, in the second floor I think of the celestial tower.

Now I'm thinking of what challenge I would have to do since I completed my previous one.

Cya and happy gameplay.

I play FireRed on my GBA, I've only recently started "shiny hunting" first target being a shiny Articuno. I don't have the patience to tally up my soft resets but I can honestly say I've been trying at least for 3 hours a day for the last two weeks or so. No results yet but I really think a shiny Articuno would be worth the effort.
After I finally get Articuno, I'm most likely going to attempt to retrieve a shiny Moltres and a shiny Zapdos.
Wish me luck and happy hunting!

(I also want a shiny Psyduck!!!)

I keep a false swiper and usually also a sleeper on hand at all times for just such occasions. I even False Swiped Boldore because I didn't trust Sturdy ><

At that high a number, I worry you may be running into RNG issues. Is this a Fire Red starter? Try taking a few steps and re-saving every couple dozen SRs or so. You could also try breeding.

For Zapdos and Moltres, you could try running from them, walking onto a different screen and going back. This saves you the time of doing a full soft reset and guarantees the RNG is always in a different state each time.
It's harder to do with Articuno since it's buried so deep in the cave.

You're telling me! I've barely had any time to hunt at all, but hopefully I'll be free for the next month or so.

The time I have hunted has been spent on my FR target and the Johto starters.

@MetalMario

Thank you, I wasn't sure if Articuno would still be there if I ran. That's an excellent strategy and will surely save me time!

@G-Money I think I'm gonna start off with Zapdos now lol, since It would be faster in my opinion.

I LOLed at this.

I've only hatched one Litwick this month. I've been focused on hatching Axew for my team. I'm trying to get perfect IVs in HP, Attack, and Speed, but I keep on getting ones with perfect IVs in Attack, Sp. Attack, and Speed.

Metal Mario: I've been doing new save files every 500 sr's or the end of the week, I guess I'm just having terrible luck.


I am hoping to get a shiny by the end of the year though, might have to chain on platinum and I'm terrible at it but I'm pretty discouraged since I haven't gotten a shiny since February 23. I have a good feeling with treeko though.

Thanks. There's no need to feel sorry. I plan on hatching Piplup for Christmas. He's not an Ice-type, but he looks like he should be. I'm also considering Cubchoo and Cryogonal.

Congrats on the shiny Spinarak, abhi123! That's a cool shiny.

This week's random hunt is... Whismur!

Hey, just thought I'd drop by and say how my hunt's going so far. I've made it to 2,180 Charmander (which is just above the average for a Masuda shiny in generation four) and I took a break for a couple of days. Obviously, I need to get back to it or else I'll get lazy and wait months again.

@Chr. Draco: Congrats on the Litwick :D
@abhi123: Congrats on the Spinarak! I've always loved its shiny form. I may go after it myself some time.
@Latios Master: I hope you get Litwick soon after you go back to hatching them. I feel your pain xD

Welcome to the club, Spritingyoshi22, and DarkBreloom!

@NightOfRemorse: Thanks. Good luck on your Charmander hunt.

@abhi123: Thanks.

I finally got an Axew with the right IVs. It took the full month, from 11/1-11/30. I have three more members of my team to hatch, as well as four additional Pokémon I want to have IV bred, none of which will be MMed. It may be awhile before I MM again. Hopefully it won't take long.

Yes!! Behold the December Quest:

1) Catch an Ice-type shiny.
2) Catch an Ice-type shiny.
3) Catch a Winter Holiday-related shiny (i.e., Delibird or Abomasnow).
4) ???
5) PROFIT


That's right - catch/hatch/SR any two Ice-type shinies, and then get a shiny for the Winter Holidays! You'll get to explain why your shiny is relevant.

No chaining or trading to get shinies so that it'll be fair to everyone.

Good luck to all! If you have any suggestions/feedback, please post it!

The December Quest will last until 1:00 AM EST on January 1st, 2012.
