OK I am hunting for a shiny tauros using the pokeradar I have seen many videos of people that capture shinies using this method so it could be very effective to get shinies but chaining them is so difficult my largest chain was 31 I cant get to the 40 chain

Anyone have been using this method with good results

Thanks for answering my questio

see you later

DIEGO

Would that be me? XD

Well I've decided I'm going to buy Diamond on Tuesday and play it on my semi broken DS until I get the new one, but until then I'm training up some mons for competitive battle on the 4th Gen. I may also start training Beldum.

Good luck all.

Hey guys. I've not been feeling too well over the last 3 days so I've not been shiny hunting. But once I get better I'll resume my hunt for Regigigas.

And Ullion, good luck. I mean really good luck. You'll need it if you plan to hunt shiny Skorupi. I know I caught a shiny Croagunk but I swear I also saw Hell freeze over on my visit that day.

Well i managed to end my dry spell shiny wise, with two shiny absols, one with pressure, and one with super luck.

Piccys






However i don't know which one of these would be the best one to use in a team, so could some of the more knowledgeable members help me? which absol should i use in my team, and how?

EDIT: Crud, didn't want them that big

Edit: Eh, to be honest with you, Kratos, neither of them are that good. I say use the Hardy one. At least it won't be outrun by slow junk.

I already knew neither of them were any good nature wise, it was more of a "lesser of two evils" kinda thing ya know?

But thanks for your input, one more thing though how would you say i ev train them? and what moveset should i give it?

I don't use absol very much ya see.

Just curious, but the Hardy one DOES have Super Luck, right? If so, then you should definitely train that one.

It would help to know the Speed IV of your Absol. I'd say that you should just max Attack and Speed, and give it a Choice Banding moveset.

Absol@Choice Band
Night Slash/Sucker Punch
Psycho Cut
Rock Smash
X-Scissor/Stone Edge

Alternatively, you can just run Swords Dance in the last move slot, take your pic between X-Scissor, Rock Smash, and Stone Edge, and make Absol hold Life Orb or Expert Belt.

Absol@Life Orb/Expert Belt
Swords Dance
Psycho Cut
Night Slash
Rock Smash/X-Scissor/Stone Edge

I'd run either Rock Smash or Stone Edge because the Rock Smash hits most things that X-Scissor can hit harder (like Tyranitar, Houndoom, and Weavile).

The hardy one does indeed have super luck, i'll start training it later tonight.
Thanks for the help fufu.

LilDill, why did you even think about attacking Roselia with a super effective move in the first place? Did you not have many PokeBalls?

Wow, I only need three more shinies to get to the red stars...I've come a long way from when I first joined. Though to be fair, I would only have one blue star if it weren't for the PokeRadar. To be honest, I want Latias to be my first red star (assuming I get there, of course), maybe I should lay off hunting it for a bit.

Yeah, I think that sounds nice. Looks like all my attention is now on Bulbasaur and Squirtle! Wish me luck.

What color comes after red, anyways? I haven't seen any card with that many shinies on it.


I change my avatar too often. I wish I could find one that I really liked and wouldn't have to change all the time.

Hey Fufu! Thanks, its alright. I havn't been aiming to get a shiny, so I wasn't expecting to get one. I don't know if y'all heard or not, but my friend IRL (He has an account here, Piggy555) caught a shiny starly right away! I am so pissed. D:

Ullion I don't blame you for bein pissed. A bit like the day I first got Pearl and found a shiny Starly when I had no pokeballs. I restarted after that to get rid of the evils. Shinies I have lost include:
-The aforementioned Starly
-Dratini (LG Safari Zone. Ran away.)
-Hariyama (Emerald Victory Road. Hit Run by mistake.)

As for Regigigas I have stopped hunting it as I thought. "What's the point? Each try takes too long and I'll never use the thing." So I am now at the Old Chateau hunting for one of the Gastly line. Maybe doing the occasional Rotom SR at night.

Oh, I see! So that means you have 22 Shinies; and your 25th Shiny would be your first Red Star? Very nice!! Do I have this correct:

8 Shinies equal Eight Yellow Stars
16 Shinies equals Eight Aqua-Marine Stars
24 Shinies equals Eight Blue Stars
32 Shinies equals Eight Red Stars
40 Shinies equals Eight Gold Stars
What comes after this?

I have 7 Shinies if memory serves... Enough for almost the first set on a SHC!?

Ed, about how many seconds would you say it takes to do a soft reset for Regigigas? I'm just curious because I refuse to hunt one until I have all three shiny Regis for myself (I don't care if they are from trade, but it'd be better if they weren't).

Shadow Chaos, you are correct.

Edit: Wait, Shadow Chaos, were the two shiny Ralts you got from the same chain? If so, that means that only one of them will count.

You mean If I was chaining Ralts then encountered one, caught it, then encountered another one later during the same chain, caught that one, then yes. So that would count as 6 shinies for me? No problem!

Takes about 40 seconds for the game to load up, then another 10 to go through the dialogue. But it's not just that. I prefer to hunt shinies I can use in battle, and I never use legendaries. Right now I'm just trying to find a non-chained shiny, and Gastly pop up every few seconds.

I don't think I'm that scary any more =P

Looks like were edging our way to Page 500 :o

Done up some of the SHC cards, well Dark Steelix's and Kratos Rage's, that took up quite a bit of time, heh.

Remember people if you have 30 posts in the club you can request a card here

Going to start playing Emerald in a second, getting Diamond on Wednesday, so I'm looking forward to that, unfortunately I won't be able to chain on it (once I get the Pokéradar) until I get my hands on a new DS.

Anywho, good look to all.
