@Peko: GRAAAAAAAAATS. I still want one. >3 I guess I need to run into another shiny that I don't want and you do. Haha. I also really need to play through a IV gen game again so I can try my luck with radar chaining. Grr..

Gratz on the Chatot Pekopon, i always liked that as a shiny :)

seems to be quite a revival in chaining here recently. I remember the time i taught myself how to chain with horror, it was so hard! I never did get that shiny Ponyta i wanted. maybe ill go back and get it later in the week.

Shiny sandile hasnt appeared for me yet. currently at 1723 RE in Relic Castle, with 1360 of those being on white 2 with shiny charm, and the other 363 on my white from when i was dual hunting last night. Still a way to go methinks!

congratz on the shiny chatot, I have no luck whatsoever with chaining and to date haven't gotten a chain past 33, it always breaks. Sad to say my chances of getting a random one is higher than chaining lol.

Hi there! I like shiny Pokemon--some of them.

I have found some shiny Pokemon (without cheats) and that was shocking. At first I didn't know it. But I caught them--thank goodness my first shiny Pokemon was the one that's got noticeable color change.

I gotta admit I didn't expect shiny when I found them. When I urged for shiny, it won't come out at all. The chances are so low,
Cheats are probably the best way to get 100% chance of shiny *my cousin used it once*

And I can remember this one, too. I was playing with old Pokemon games (the ones like FireRed) and encountered a Shiny Pidgey. I haven't received Pokeballs back then.............................................

@unowen: We're all about finding them without cheats or RNG abuse. The chances ARE low, but that's what's so fun about finding them! You found something that has a very low chance of being encountered. It can get tedious doing thousands of random encounters, soft resets, egg hatches, etc but once you see the sparkle it's all worth it. (In my opinion anyway!)

Pffft wow, three shiny Chatot. Congratulations. {:

Now I want to try my hand at chaining again. I've never even hit 20...I need a lot of practice haha. Nothing to update on, though. I haven't had much luck lately with shinies. My last one was last year- a Golbat on White version.

Looks like I've just been really lucky the past couple months. I was level grinding my shiny Chatot when I stumbled upon this!



While not a shiny I'll ever use, it's at least a nice one unlike the lame Zebstrika I randomly found. This is also the third shiny I've caught with a gentle nature. >_< This is the second fifth gen shiny I've caught on my black 2 file with the shiny charm, so if I catch another that means it will apply to the yearly quest! : )

Funny thing is that when I found it, I threw a repeat ball at it and it was a Critical Capture. XD My luck has to run out sooner or later.

I also notice that all of my shinies have a partner.
Pidgeot + Torchic = Golden Birds
Zebstrika + Audino = Fifth generation purple shinies found by accident.
Beedrill + Lunatone = hovering blue eyed shinies
Pachirisu + Chatot = Chained Pink Shinies.

Yep, I also agree with you
Too bad all those shinies I found were in my real GBA catridges, which I know are 90% likely to be unusable anymore after the years. Now I want to try it with my emulator. Anyone else doing it in an emulator? Is Masuda method also working in emulator?

Well, ive been hunting for Sandile, and ive not found him yet. But then tis lil guy popped up. Sassy nature.



This is on White 2, after 2220 REs in Relic Castle, and sometimes dual hunting with White, with 834 REs on that. so 3054 overall. Still gonna keep hunting for Sandile

I seem to have had a string of green shinies XD

EDIT 6 HOURS LATER: The shiny gods are smiling upon me today! This little lady just popped up on my copy of White after another 6 hours of dual hunting!



Calm nature, with intimidate as the ability! booya!

As i say, this came from my copy of White, obviously with no shiny charm (so totally unexpected), with a total of 1183 REs in Relic Castle. I have a total of 2598 REs on White 2 as well, giving a grand total of 3781 REs to get this Sandile. So yeah, 2 shinies, 6 hours apart, from 2 different games, in a total of 3781 REs. I feel so happy

Hiya! Just came across this thread via google and wanted to join in.

Shinies I own: Charizard, Virizion, Regirock, Sneasal, Dratini, Haxorus

My primary hunt at the moment is Regice at 3,000 SRs and counting. Also doing some secondary hunting in the double grass of Route 20 in Unova.

I'm really happy to have found a group that shares my excitement for shinies! Can't wait to participate in the weekly/monthly/yearly hunts, and get to know some of you guys.

@Fishyfins: Congratulations on the sandshrew and Sandile! Both of those guys evolve into pretty awesome shinies. : )

@Bern: Congratulations on the Shiny Phanpy! Chaining is pretty fun, isn't it. : ) Feels a bit more like you're still playing a game when you chain rather than just hoping for a shiny to pop up randomly. (though a random shiny is still more exciting to find)

@SuspectedElk: Welcome to the group! The yearly and monthly quests are pretty cool since it gives you a goal if you're not sure what to go for next. Make sure you drop in on the chatroom too. Me and a few other people are in there fairly often, and we've been hoping to get some more people to show up regularly. : )

As for me, I did some more chaining, and while I was originally planning on looking for Meditite, I stumbled upon a Graveler and thought I'd go for that. I'm really happy I was able to get it. : )



I got two of them, and traded and evolved one of them. I'm keeping the other one a graveler.



(get it? Granite rhymes with Janet)

A couple noteworthy things happened in this hunt. I used up one of my three Masterballs on the first shiny graveler since I didn't know if Graveler using selfdestruct would break my chain or not. I later found out it doesn't, so I essentially wasted a Master Ball. I ran into four shiny gravelers, but only managed to catch two of them. After that I burned through fourty super repels without seeing any more shiny patches, so I eventually got frustrated and gave up on the chain. Neither of these gravelers are super great in terms of ivs, but that doesn't matter to me since Golem is another one of those really classic Kanto Pokemon, which makes me happy to have any shiny of it. I may not like the Kanto games too much anymore, but I'm still nostalgic for the Kanto Pokemon. There was also a close call where I walked into the wrong patch of grass after I caught my first shiny, but the chain kept going anyways.

Anyhoo, good luck to everyone, and here's hoping we keep finding shinies at the pace we have been lately. : )

I caught two more shiny phanpy's lol. That brings my total to 7! I plan on catching ten of them, so 3 more to go. My next chain targets will probably be porygon or oddish. I still am hunting drifloon, but its on hold, 5400 sr. Anyways, till next time.

@PEKO: Gz on the graveler, ive tried that like 5 times and failed each one... rofl. Maybe we should try and chain the same pokemon and do a race. XD

Anyone mind sending some luck over my way here? Pretty much got over the odds collectively without a shiny since I started hunting again D:< Anyone still doing 1/8192 hunting? Maybe that's why I feel droughtful lol :3

Dialga: 3260 SRs
Moltres: 6360 SRs
Eevee: 1890 Hatched

I filled in the shiny meme thing. I think you'll pretty easily figure out that my favourite colours are blue, green and yellow. (Green being my favourite of the three)

Spoiler:


You know I should probably make more of an effort to get some of these shinies. I only have 3 of them out of 30.

Here's a quick update:

I'm up to around 32 REs in various parts of Sinnoh, using Sweet Scent in hopes of saving time.

Also have been chaining. I finally know how and currently am chaining Floatzel, only because it was what I ran into right away. I currently am seven chains in and still going. Considering my best (before really learning how) was 12, I'm thinking I'll be able to beat that pretty easily. ;D I really need to stock up on repels, though.

Well, I managed to eek out one more chained shiny before Sunday, and this is the most excited I've gotten about a chained shiny. Not only because it's one of my favourite Pokemon from Kanto and a really cool green shiny, but also because it was my most difficult chain hunt so far.



The patch of grass for Mr. Mime in platinum is pretty cramped, so chaining it was very time consuming and difficult. Also once I finally got the chain to fourty, it took about 40 super repels before I finally found a shiny patch. I was actually pretty mad by the time I found it, but I was still excited. It has a timid nature and has the filter ability, but the downside is that aside from special attack, it has absolutely horrible ivs. Every stat is in the single digits except for special attack and special defense. : <

I was only able to get one because I was so fed up with the hunt by the end of it that I ended it right after I caught the first one. I figured that the one I caught was good enough , and I'd just be wasting my time to try and get a better one. I may sound mad, but I'm actually really thrilled to have a shiny Mrs. Lime. = )

Look it up on smogon, there is a complete guide their. There may also be a guide on here if you look around, but im not too sure. The basics is that chaining is encountering 40 of the same pokemon in a row using the pokeradar, maximizing you chances of encountering a glittery shiny patch. It can be difficult or easy dependign on what you want to get. I find it to be stressful yet rewarding.

@PEKO: My hardest chain was larvitar, took forever to get good patches to show up. Took like 2 hours and only got two shinies out of it. And if you like shiny pokemon that are blue, I suggest ponyta

Nice to see so many people filling the meme in!

Congrats Peko on the Mr. Mime :D

Just as some news, I have been working on the xat chat so there are now pages such as FAQs, contest info and a comments page on there. There is also a brand new background on the chat itself and behind it. Hopefully the revamp will attract some to chat there :3

Also, I'm going to be taking shiny hunters club promotional image requests for a bit. I do have school so they may not be done instantaneously, but if you want a personalised shiny collection trainer card/userbar/whatever for your signature, or an avatar or profile pic or pretty much anything, be sure to PM me! :D
