Maybe this is why i STILL HAVENT OBTAINED THAT FREAKING SHINY CHARMANDER..... i should listen to the Money more often

So... the lurker returns yet again!

I'd been very fickle on my shiny hunts in the past... Changing the moment one got too tedious... But I finally got one to pan out... About two weeks ago I decided to start soft resetting again. The target? White 2 Latias. After the first hour it became mechanical in process... and today? Had been going bad. Already I had been pushed to tears from other influences... And then, as if to cheer me up....

Spoiler:


It chose to shine! If I had to estimate it was around 1500 SRs to get the beauty. She's impish nature, but I'm just happy I got it. It really turned around my day.

Hello!

I saw your forum thread about the shiny hunters, and I thought it would be cool if I became a shiny hunter. I've only ever seen and caught one shiny, and it was a Paras from Mt. Moon. I'm not sure if I still have him or not.

I will try to hunt for shinies as much as I can. I guess my hunt will start with the three swordsmen, Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion, wish me luck!

Peace!

Hey guys I'm off to bed, but so far this weekend got a decent amount of hunting done i will post below my numbers. I am hoping to get Diglett next because then I am going BACK to the special trees north of Cerulean and try for Combee after the disagreement we had about how cute charm effects shininess I gave up and went to Diglett, but after seeing several hunters on YT get shiny female Combee I figured cute charm does in fact not effect shininess so I will return to that. Good luck to everyone and their respective hunts.
Fossils - 2800 Revived
Diglett - 737 REs
Uxie - 702 SRs
Victory Road Grove ~ 3000 REs

I have a question, though it may already be answered: can I use RNG abuse to find shinies?

If I remember right, those don't count here. But yes. You can RNG shininess... But take it from someone who RNG'd in the past... It's just not as satisfying as finally finding your shiny after X amount of REs/SRs



In other news, SRing lens has been turned on Cress now that Latias sparkled. Wish me luck~

Congrats!! I'm sorry about whatever else happened, but finding a shiny (especially a really awesome one like that) is always a great way to shine up your day.

Welcome to the club! You can RNG if you want to and we're not going to stop you from posting in the club, but as Kirozane said, it's not really fun. I know for sure that I don't enjoy it, and I'd highly recommend hunting shinies through one of the tougher methods, like SRing or MMing.

This is really interesting. I hadn't heard anything about this before you posted this, so I looked it up and read some threads where other people debated it. It's always fun to read new stuff about shiny chances - thanks for posting about it, Arceus!

It appears that Cute Charm might have an affect on shininess, but only if your lead Pokemon has it. It's sort of like how having your lead have Synchronize can influence the nature of the Pokemon you find, but a wild Pokemon having Synchronize won't do anything to influence the already-set natures of your party's Pokemon.

Then again, the stuff I read on Cute Charm was mostly from this thread which is in the context of RNGing, so Cute Charm might work differently there than it does in normal settings. This post seems to say that if your hidden ID has a certain connection to your Trainer ID, then Cute Charm would improve your chances. But since we have absolutely no idea what our hidden IDs are, this shouldn't be relevant. The only possible implication is that if our two IDs don't have a certain relation, then finding shinies would be harder, but if our IDs do have the necessary relation, then finding shinies would be easier. Again, I think this has to do with having the lead Pokemon in your party have Cute Charm, but it doesn't sound like wild Pokemon with Cute Charm would have their probabilities changed.

So it seems like:

1) having a Cute Charm Pokemon as your lead may affect shiny chances in 4th gen, and
2) it will either raise or lower your chances of finding a shiny based upon some difference between your Trainer ID and your hidden ID. Therefore,
3) because we don't know what our hidden IDs are, much less how they relate to our Trainer IDs, this doesn't really change things. However, having a Cute Charm Pokemon might increase some of the risk of shiny hunting, as you might have a higher chance of finding shinies and you might have a much lower chance of finding shinies.

Congrats on the shiny Regigigas, Chr. Draco!

Congrats on the shiny Latias, Kirozane! Welcome back! Good luck!

Welcome to the club, Samurott01!

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

I finished my journey on Black 2 a month ago, and since then I've been working on the Pokédex. I'm only about 1/3 done.

Thanks G-Money! I'm glad I was accepted and I hope to find lots of shinies in the future. I know SRing is soft resetting, but what is MMing?

MM means Masuda Method, meaning that you breed a Non-English Poke thats NOT from your game with a Poke that IS from your game, giving you better chances of hatching a shiny

Woo haven't been here in a while! Congrats to all those who have gotten shinies since I've last been here, and good luck to everyone! The reason I'm back is because shiny hunting has piqued my interest. (for now at least, we'll see how long it holds!)

I'm about to try for my first MM target! It'll be secret, because who doesn't love secrets? I hope this works out!

Hello! I've played Pokemon for seven years, but the only shiny I've ever caught was lost when my DS battery died. I'd love to get into shiny-hunting. Might I join?

Definitely! Welcome to the club, everyone! It's awesome to see three people join on the same day.

Sorry to hear about your lost shiny, Emilia. What Pokemon was it?

Good luck on your Bulbasaur hunt, CrowSvenson - that's a really awesome goal to have!

Alright, thanks! I might shift my first target to a Totodile. I will use the Masuda Method, cuz I managed to get a Japanese Totodile from my HeartGold Version. Wish me luck!

Does MM work with any combination of countries? I've been breeding my American Eevee with my British Ditto.

No, it has to be two different languages, so American + British won't work.

Hi there!
I'm new to the forums and was interested in joining this club!
I've been an avid pokemon fan since I was a little girl, now 25 and still kicking. Haha. I mostly play White 2 right now but I also sometimes stream speed runs of older games and I'm interested in streaming some challenges/races at some point.
I've always loved finding shinies, but I never really considered hunting them before and now that I've done all the content in my white 2, I'd like to try to pick it up in preparation for X and Y! The only shinies I've found without them being automatic in the game are ghastly and ditto in Pokemon Pearl and flaafy (now ampharos) in Pokemon HeartGold.
I have this weird goal of having an all purple team since it's my favorite color so I think my first shiny goal will be a vaporeon. :X

Abra: 895
Route 32: 5992
Torchic: 2362
Ho-oh: 7012

Those are really boring answers on my part, haha. :cer_laugh:

Welcome to the club, Kitori! Good luck on your Vaporeon - having a team of all purple Pokemon (or better yet, all purple shinies!) would be totally awesome!
