I think that's a good strategy, sometimes i do double SR's or even combine RE and SR but only when I have time. Other times I RE while doing other things like watching TV; when I was chaining dittos, i was watching a movie, and when I noticed I was at a chain of 40 already (yes, got another shiny ditto, don't ask why I'm hunting them, I think magikarp in my previous pic explains everything).

OMG!!! Only 4 days into the summer
Holidays, 2 days into my personal
Summer challenge and already I've found
a shiny. It's one of my 3 secret targets,
A shiny Marill after only 862 REs on my
Leaf Green version. I found it while travelling
to my campsite, and it's a freakin
amazing shiny

*Found 23rd July 2013 at 13:11 PM*

Sick! I've been on the hunt for that exact shiny as well. So far no luck. Gotta love the green color. Marill's one of my favorites because of that whole Pikablu myth that went around just before gen 2 came out. Ahh, nostalgia.

The agony! I accidentally ran from a shiny Roselia back in Sapphire. I was so pissed off I didn't play the game for a month.

No shinies of my own of late, the hunt continues!

Switched up my hunts on SS and Diamond since I got shinies on them in the last week or so. After I got Machoke I moved to Route 217 for awhile. I gave up on that route and moved to Route 228. Not going for anything in particular here. I got a shiny on my SS a few days ago so I switched over to Route 8. I will post a picture when I get enough posts. (Won't ruin the surprise yet). I use a level 18 pokemon and repel for Haunters and Noctowls at night. On my HG, I haven't seen anything in 110+ hours. Moved from Mt. Silver to Route 16. Mostly just Grimer here, however, there is a small chance for a Murkrow or Slugma. Obviously I am not going to get my hopes up for the latter two. Good luck with your hunts everyone.

I usually keep a Japanese Ditto in the daycare center, just to increase the chance of the hatched Pokemon being shiny. I've been hatching the random eggs lying around my PC box...hopefully I'll end up with one that's shiny.

If not, I'm planning to MM for a shiny Eevee. I do have a copy of Soulsilver that I can SR on, but I can't seem to find it. I've never managed to obtain a shiny via breeding, so I don't have my hopes up. I also happen to have an Eevee which has *some* decent IVs, so hopefully some of the offspring will inherit the good IVs.

Back once again after a break. I have had no luck at all with any Shiny. Right now I am working on getting a Shiny Ralts in honor of Gardevoir becoming a Fairy in X and Y.

Today I changed my mind and decided that a shiny Ralts would be a better choice for hunting. I already have a male (from chaining), but it has one of the worst possible natures, so I never bothered to train him.

I tried several times throughout the day with no luck.
A few minutes ago, after only either 4 or 7 chains, a shiny patch appeared.

I now have a shiny female Ralts with a Modest (-Atk +Sp Atk) nature. I plan to EV train for HP and Sp Attack and eventually evolve her into a Gardevoir. [:

Edit:
I don't know why that said 4. Either I wasn't paying attention and wrote the wrong number, or I just am getting mixed up now and it really was 4.

Thanks (:
If you play D/P (it's different on Platinum) try chaining just north of Jubilife City. It has a 11% encounter rate, but a nice large area of tall grass.

As of now, I don't have specific plans as to what I want to hunt for. Perhaps a swarm 'mon or just whatever I encounter in a large patch of tall grass. Even if I get a shiny that I don't want, it still is a shiny.

Hey everyone!

Sorry I vanished. School caught up with me and to be honest life is pretty sucky right now, but we shiny hunters are known for our determination right? So I managed to fit in a measly 5 minutes hunting after not hunting for 5 weeks and it does pay off. I find Alex, a beautifully purple shiny mudkip! I'll put up the video as soon as it's done, he is Sassy natured.

Major major major congratulations to all the shinies I've missed, huge welcomes to members I've been absent for, and good luck to the beginnings of hunting journeys!

EDIT: Here we are, click here for the video! I'm going after Squirtle next :3

Well, I've basically started my shiny hunting from scratch, and now that most of my shinies are in fifth gen, I've decided to stop transferring them to fifth gen, and keep shinies exclusively in fourth gen. As for what I've accomplished, I have two shiny hoenn starters to show off!

First off is Treecko, which I transferred to fourth gen and evolved into sceptile.
Spoiler:



I found this after ten days of hunting, and boy was I thrilled to find it. Despite how long it took to find, I didn't run across any shiny uncatchable poohyena. : )

Second is a shiny I've already hunted twice before, this is my third shiny Torchic! Though this time I was brave and decided to evolve it despite how lame shiny blaziken is. At the moment it's only a Combusken, but It will evolve eventually. I found this Torchic after 8136 soft resets, and after finding THREE shiny poochyena in one day. Fortunately I found the Torchic the next afternoon. : )
Spoiler:



Now I just gotta get Mudkip, and I'll have all three!

Alright well I ran into a shiny Shinx as a RE earlier today.
I know it seems unrealistic to catch two in less than 48 hours, so here:
https://www.pokecheck.org/?p=detail&uid=5424064
(The met date only is in the future because my game system was going on tomorrow's date.)

I'm glad I caught it today, considering I recently found out that my friend messed with my 'mons and now some of my shinies aren't UT. It's too late to do anything about it, but at least now I have one more that's UT.

I just realized that I completed the july quest! I got a torchic and a treecko! So that actualy marks the "complete two monthly quests" requirement off of the yearly quest for me! (I previously got pidgeot and my second torchic for the pokemon with two feet monthly quest)

I've also gotten Pidgeot for the first gen shiny, torchic/treecko for the third gen shiny, and I've found a shiny charm Zebstrika and Audino. The only things left for me to do are second gen shiny, fourth gen shiny, and one more shiny charm fifth gen shiny!

I only have ever come across one shiny, and that was a shiny Medicham! Caught it in Victory Road in Diamond.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, be glad you aren't counting those as yours.
The ones I bolded have a reeeeeally high chance of being hacked, and the Bold, italicized underlined ones are no doubt in my mind hacked from here to timbuktu and back. Arceus, Celebi, Mew and Jirachi are impossible to get legitimately shiny (Unless the mew is japanese and from Hoenn, then there's the slightest sliver, but considering Emerald's near impossibility to SR shinies, I wouldn't get my hopes up.) And since those are hacked, I doubt the rest are very legit. And some slip past pokecheck. I admittedly tested it with a Litwick. But considering The ones I know for a FACT are hacked, I think it'd be safe to assume they all are.

Haha I am assuming that only 2 are (sort of) legitimately shiny, and the others are all hacked (though they might not ALL be). Given the cartridge has 500 Masterballs, 95 of each TM etc I really don't think there is much doubt. Given almost all have the same Trainer ID as the cartridge, which only has 95 hours played on it, makes it harder again to believe. Didn't even have the PokeRadar lol, so chaining can't explain any of them.

See if you can figure out which 2 I reckon are real and why

Jirachi can only be obtained via gamecube; mew with emerald (japanese); deoxys in birth island; manaphy if it's from ranger and avoid the shiny check it has; the others can't be shiny (arceus event was never released, celebi can only be caught shiny on cristal I think and there's no way to migrate pokemon from II to III generation).

got another clefairy, this time male, the last one was female.
here the pic:

shiny clefairy 2.jpg

congrats on all new catches and completed challenges

I'm going to guess Geodude and Golbat because they seem to be fairly common as shinies, or as common as shinies can get anyways. Am I right?

Also, hello guys! I'm back from a 3 month hiatus from shiny hunting :3

Congratulations on all the caught shinies everyone!

@Lunafloon Welcome back! What pokemon are you hunting for at the moment?

After roughly 140 hours of RE's on HG, I have found a shiny Wingull. I was camping the Viridian Forest but decided to go to Vermillion City for the Wingull swarm. 45 minutes later and Wingull appears. No clue how many RE's it took but if I had to guess it would be 14k+, maybe close to 15k. The IVs aren't that great and it has a Bold nature. (-Atk, +Def)

I have a feeling this game is going to get generous. Anyone know a good place to hunt on HG?

*Still working on 30 posts... or there would be pictures.

Caught a shiny Darkrai after 257 SR's!

Actually I found it months ago, but I kept forgetting to post it, sorry!

Also today I got an shiny Squirtle after 12 (yes, 12) eggs. And no I did not use AR, but I did use the Masuda method using an
Japanese Ditto I got from the GTS and an UK Blastoise I got from Heartgold.

Nope. Not saying they aren't but no reason to believe those two are legitimate. Between your shiny card and the clue of 'sort of' you should be able to get it next try

*Just making a super fast point*

The Mew point that was made~
Mew is actually really easy (as far as near-impossibilities go) to SR for on Emerald. Provided you can get to the island, all you need to to SR for Mew is talk to it, if it isn't shiny go out of the area it is in, back in and talk to in again and repeat until it's shiny. You don't even need to reset. Because of the Emerald RNG people are scared of doing this but leaving the area allows to RNG to work ask normal, so this is hopefully how I will one day get a shiny Mew myself
