O_O wow were nearing the 600 mark, that came quickly.

Well I hope some of you remember me Just checking in, I'll have internet for a week as im staying at a friends but then I'll be gone again D: but I'll try and read all i have missed.

I don't think I've gotten any new shinys since the last time i posted, to be honest I haven't been playing Diamond all that much. The last i remember i was chaining for a Shiny Grimer... meh.

Looks like your behind with the card updates MM I would love to say I could take a few of them off your hands, but unfortunatly, I can't :\ dont have any form of Photoshop here.

Well thats all for now, nice to see some old faces, like Kim, Runa and so on, a welcome to all the new members.

Good Luck all.

Indeed. Truth be, I came so I could chronicle my shiny Gligar search..

Hoping to find a few people who have them, to see if I could get any tips. At a 8% encounter rate, they don't come cheap. I tried using Intimidate actually to try and help sway it into my favor, and it did seem to help a little, but the highest I've gotten so far is just 14. :(

it's a shame, too, a shiny Gliscor is what my team needs. It would fill such a big gap.

Well, it's not -that- big, but it'd help take care of a few select Pokemon that can ruin the whole parade.

I could try breeding one, but I haven't gotten a shiny yet from an egg. And I'm not exactly dependent on the Ability. Both would work, for 2 reasons: 1, Sand Veil would work great with my current team. 2. Hyper Cutter would be great as well, that way it could receive some boosts and they wouldn't be able to take it away from it, and my team is kinda having an identity crisis right now, although it's no big deal. I've built it around Sandstorm, but some of the better Pokemon I like or have aren't steel, ground or rock. But my Tyranitar... I'm kinda attached to it, I know what it can do, and it's done a lot (even if it comes up short here and there).

But regardless, I'm intent on getting a shiny Gligar. I'm still thinking about how to do it. It's hard, I feel like each time I go into grass it'll break.. my old chain-break nemesis..es are back, and they brought a buddy with them. Ponyta, Kricketune, and now Geodude ruin my fun.

Another problem is just FINDING a Gligar to start a chain. What's strange is that I've only found them in the common grass. The ones that just wiggle a little.


Meanwhile, as I've been trying to get a heading on that (dunno why I didn't come here first)..

I've been playing through my 2nd Pearl I got a few months back, and just broke the plastic on it last week. =P I've had my eye on some of it's exclusives, mainly Misdreavus and Slowpoke, Slowpoke being my alternative to Gligar if I could get one. It may even be a better pick, but like I said before, identity crisis, I'm slipping away from Sandstorm by doing so. Purple vs. blue/yellow.... they both look awesome.

O_O

Blue + yellow....

New Orleans Hornets! kool!

Anyway, I'm planning on having my name changed from DDD to "GekkouKitsune" so it'll be the same as my YouTube account and just about everywhere else.
I'll probably put "Formerly DDD'SSCEPTILE" somewhere too. It'll be sad I guess, but the only place that has that name now is here and Nintendo's """""'TECH""""" Forums, so it's really lost itself to time. =( I'll still keep it associated with me however. I think there's a few other places that might still have it, but I've forgotten about them.

Thanks, and order when ready.

Still nothing for me... -_- This has been my second longest, eternal hunt that I've been on since I finaly caught a Shiny (F) Ralts on Diamond after all those years of searching for one since Ruby... But being that Charizard is my ultimate all-time favorite Pokemon, the search will continue!! So till next time, good luck!!

My Shiny hunt shall remain the same as when I last came here: Shiny Eevee. I REALLY hope I'll get it with the right Nature and IVs (I don't care about how long it takes, as long as it's good!), or I'll feel persistent enough to breed for another one! XD
Right now I am spriting some things for a friend's (scratch!) Pokémon game, so I'm somewhat focused on this for now, but I'll probably get a bit bored soon, so I may pick up my DS and open some eggs! :D
That's kind of like me with Chikorita. Only good IVs are more of an excuse to keep me motivated. Speaking of which, I haven't bred any Chikos in a long time--not since my games were stolen.

I still have my army of high IV Chikos safely on Emerald, so I'll be able to hit the GTS running with heaps of excellent Chikos for offer, just like before, once I've gotten this Palkia and opened up Pal Park.

I'm contemplating restarting my Emerald for hopefully a better ID that might at least enable me to breed for shinies. I've only maybe bred a thousand or so Chikos, so my failure thus far isn't really statistically significant.

Well, I've kind of just gotten back from another period of inactivity, so boo. They're going to come when I find the time.

Insertion Pokémon are definitely the most painful to chain. Seviper came on a low chain, and that's the only one I've had success with. And my beloved disco snake is gone. I was actually in the process of chaining Lunatone when my games got stolen, thus why Sapphire was in my DS at the time.

Seriously, the worst part about theft is the destruction of sentiment.

Well, the only other place I knew you from was the "former Nsider" (Uggh, why tech forums?? T_T I miss the Mario Kart boards.), so DDD's the name I'd most identify you with. To each his own, I guess, but I find name changes unnecessary and confusing. Maybe they'd be good for typos (but who typos their username?) or names that were extremely tacky to start, but I don't believe in fickle name changes.

1518 Palkias. Work is slowing me to less than half the speed I'd otherwise be going at. I did around 500 Dialga resets per day way back then.

Yesterday I saw the IVs on the Eevees I had in my box from last time I opened eggs. Now I'm breeding again and all is fine in Ruland! Hatchin' , hatchin', hatchin'! Nothing that interesting, I got 3 Eevees worthy of being used for breeding and one of them can even be trained (Relaxed nature)

Hehe, if I get any USB thing for Wi-Fi on my DS anytime soon, I'm sure to tempt you to trade me one of those beauties! I have a Meganium in my NetBattle team and it's practically irreplaceable, I love it! Besides, it WAS my first starter in the history of Pokémon.

As for the Palkia, good luck! It's got that light colour pattern that suits it. XD

...Good IVs FTW!!!!

OOOoooOOO eevees!!!! I can't wait till I get my eevee so I can breed it and make like a whole little army lol... I love them they are just so cute.

Anyways i'm just about to reach my Dialga in diamond just lvling up some of the main pokemon I like to use but i'm super excited. I was planning on doing SR to get a shiny one but then I thought what if it's color is predecided when I start the game because it's a legendary...does anyone know so I don't waste my time doing SR???

Meanwhile I spent all day yesterday SR for a shiny combee from my tree okay well not all day like 2 hours then i started to wonder how long does a pokemon wait at the tree? Finally I got nervous that i'd reset and it wouldn't be there and just caught a lvl 15 female...sigh I have terrible luck when it comes to shinies, er well come to think of it I always seem to just have terrible luck in gerneral. Well hopefully that will all change when I finnish my sinnoh dex and get my poke radar and can start chaining.

Had a shiny Dialga. -__- I will be SRing for another one some time soon. Now, back to watching Star Trek TNG.

My total reset count was a mere 1580--looks like my lucky streak is continuing, and I now have TWO prizes from May Mayhem! :D It'll be good to get back the Pokéradar, finally, and get back shiny Seviper, Weavile, and Absol. (Recall how I said tampering with the clock was "shifty, but acceptable"? Well I think I've earned myself a little shiftiness in the name of getting back shinies whom were lost. :D)

Pictures and stuff coming maybe a bit later.

Hi. ^-^

About Dialga, it's not predetermined. If it was, both you and MM are screwed. But y'all aren't because I'm 99.99% sure this has been done before. So SR without fear!


As for Combee, if you noticed if it kept changing genders, then it would've most likely eventually bee-came shiny.
As for it disappearing because of the Honey, I'm not sure. Because I SR'd for Drifloon for a while, and as midnight approached and went by... It was still there. So I kept SRing.
But when I gave up and left the area, it disappeared.

So most likely, that's the way it works with the trees as well. If so.... I'd like to SR for a few tree people. There's a lot of options available... mmm.... Heracross. Munchlax! Aipom...



Anyway, there was a giveaway today. Some person was clearing off their game so they could restart over to get good IV'd legendaries. They had quite a few shinies, and I got a handful of them.
I got 7 in all, and how real they are, I'm not sure. What they are:

Squirtle, Cyndaquil, Turtwig, Chimchar, Steelix, Dewgong, and Mew.

The "most likely hacked" ones?


Mew is Lv. 10 and came from Hoenn..........

But the catch? Every single Contest stat is maxed out. Is that even possible? I doubt it.


Turtwig & Chimchar, partners in crime.

They were both hatched at Lv. 1 by the same guy. No problem. Right...?

They were both hatched IN THE SAME DAY, and they both have an Adamant nature.
They're probably hacked.



As for Squirtle....

Sure, it has a Bold nature, but it came from Kanto at Lv. 5 and is untouched. The person said they got it from a friend a while back, and it was the only Pokemon from the above list that was on the person's Trade Shop list thingie. Also, the supposed IVs are around the lower 20s. Hacked? I doubt it. I'm not gonna use it anyway I don't think.

Cyndaquil. lol, I'm not sure. It's Lv. 5, came from Hoenn. The original owner went nuts and marked it like I do my shinies (A star) but only did everything except the diamond-looking thing.
I don't have any concrete evidence that it's hacked or not hacked. It's pretty though.

Steelix. =o
Found in Victory Road, Lv. 46, IS Lv. 46. Doesn't have a beneficial nature I don't think (Docile?). So I'm leaning towards not hacked, but who knows. = /


Dewgong.
Caught in the route where Dewgongs appear. They used it a little bit which is kinda lame. But I don't think its hacked. I'm gonna do an IV check later........... BUT first........


After the trading was done, I kinda felt a little weird. They could all be hacked. I just don't like trading for shinies. The reason I went to the giveaway to begin with was because they chained Gligar and got 2 shiny ones but people beat me to them..... =( So later I may just give them back once they're able to trade again.


So, now, I'm back to the normal grind.
On Pearl.

I finally saw all the Pokemon so I can get the National Dex and the PokeRadar I think. I just thought about something, do I have to have caught 60 Pokemon first to get the Radar itself.....? o_o'

Regardless, I traded over my special sleeper (lol) and my Synchronizer. I'm leveling up the sleeper right now because I plan on using it to chain my target Pokemon. I'm not comfortable with Infernape......... I don't like this Pokemon at all. Since I don't like it, it means bad luck. I won't be able to focus.
I don't care for Palkia either. Every time it comes out, I think of Robotnik's line in a many YouTube Poops............................... XD

So I'm going with something a little bit closer.

Hopefully I'll have it by tomorrow.



Oh, and yeah, I don't care for name changes either. That one guy's changed his like 3 times, I keep up with it by his shinies. o.O'
Sorry to hear that your games got stolen... O__O

edit: Damnd slow satellite internet. The only good thing about it is uploading and downloading. That's it.


Good luck on catchingShiny Palkia, lol!

Congratulations on your shiny Palkia, MM. I'm curious to hear (welll, read more, I should say) about it. ^^

Thanks for all the quick congrats, guys. Now here I am with the full scoop:



I was watching a random episode of TNG while doing soft resets idly--one of my main time filling methods to get lots of SRs done, when it came. I darted upstairs and turned my PC on, but it couldn't turn on fast enough for my satisfaction! With cameras rolling, I proceeded with the surgically precise capture.

Out goes my Timid syncher in exchange for PaperWeit, my Bronzong sleeper/wall slave. Dragon Claw on the switch. The (quite speedy, hmm...) Palkia fires a Water Pulse before I can fire Hypnosis--missed! Let's try this again. Another Water Pulse! Bronzong is confused! Bronzong hurt itself in its confusion. -.-; (I guess the gay tactics are made up for by the extreme luck in finding the sonofagun. o__o)

Full Restore is used to heal my almost dead Zong and cure confusion. Palkia uses Ancientpower for lol% damage. Again I pick Hypnosis and Palkia uses Spatial Rend, for not very much damage either. Hypnosis connects this time and Palkia is asleep.

Out goes Zong and in goes my slave Bibarel. Without fear, Bibarel begins attacking the Strawberry Ice Cream Jetplane with its Super Fangs. Midway through, Palkia wakes up, but Bibarel keeps on gnawing, going down in a blaze of glory after the fifth Fang connects.

It's back to Zong for the finish, and he takes another Water Pulse on the switch. After healing up with Moomoo Milk, it's time for another barrage of Hypnosis. After another weak Spatial Rend, Hypnosis is a hit! Now, which ball to throw...

Dusk? Too spooky. Great? Too plain. How about I throw a Premier Ball now just to see what happens? Sure, the red opening is a bit apt, but what the hell? *shake 1* ... *shake 2* ... *shake 3* ... it's... in? HOLY! SHINY PALKIA IS MINE!! :D:D

What this calls for is a Shiny Dex:



This time around, to keep the Tubers quiet, I pick up my Pearl Orb straight off (well, after saving), then head out. After killing a hapless Clefairy, I can fly to the nearest Pokécenter and check my new beauty's stats.

Stat Page 1 Stat Page 2 Stat Page 3

Wicked! My Syncher worked and Palkia is Timid! I have no clue what its IVs are like and am too lazy to use a calculator.

Now, it's time to finish the rest of the game. However, I have still to play through Diamond all the way (not for shinies this time) to collect legendaries (mainly the pixies) so I can get NatDex on Pearl without needing to capture Mesprit. Or does anyone have one they're willing to lend?

So I guess this means I've won the Palkia race. Good luck to everyone else! Don't quit just because someone else beat you to it. It really is May Mayhem, and you'll never know what might shine around the corner!

I was watching a random episode of TNG while doing soft resets idly--one of my main time filling methods to get lots of SRs done, when it came. I darted upstairs and turned my PC on, but it couldn't turn on fast enough for my satisfaction! With cameras rolling, I proceeded with the surgically precise capture.

Out goes my Timid syncher in exchange for PaperWeit, my Bronzong sleeper/wall slave. Dragon Claw on the switch. The (quite speedy, hmm...) Palkia fires a Water Pulse before I can fire Hypnosis--missed! Let's try this again. Another Water Pulse! Bronzong is confused! Bronzong hurt itself in its confusion. -.-; (I guess the gay tactics are made up for by the extreme luck in finding the sonofagun. o__o)

Full Restore is used to heal my almost dead Zong and cure confusion. Palkia uses Ancientpower for lol% damage. Again I pick Hypnosis and Palkia uses Spatial Rend, for not very much damage either. Hypnosis connects this time and Palkia is asleep.

Out goes Zong and in goes my slave Bibarel. Without fear, Bibarel begins attacking the Strawberry Ice Cream Jetplane with its Super Fangs. Midway through, Palkia wakes up, but Bibarel keeps on gnawing, going down in a blaze of glory after the fifth Fang connects.

It's back to Zong for the finish, and he takes another Water Pulse on the switch. After healing up with Moomoo Milk, it's time for another barrage of Hypnosis. After another weak Spatial Rend, Hypnosis is a hit! Now, which ball to throw...

Dusk? Too spooky. Great? Too plain. How about I throw a Premier Ball now just to see what happens? Sure, the red opening is a bit apt, but what the hell? *shake 1* ... *shake 2* ... *shake 3* ... it's... in? HOLY! SHINY PALKIA IS MINE!! :D:D

What this calls for is a Shiny Dex:



This time around, to keep the Tubers quiet, I pick up my Pearl Orb straight off (well, after saving), then head out. After killing a hapless Clefairy, I can fly to the nearest Pokécenter and check my new beauty's stats.

Stat Page 1 Stat Page 2 Stat Page 3

Wicked! My Syncher worked and Palkia is Timid! I have no clue what its IVs are like and am too lazy to use a calculator.

Now, it's time to finish the rest of the game. However, I have still to play through Diamond all the way (not for shinies this time) to collect legendaries (mainly the pixies) so I can get NatDex on Pearl without needing to capture Mesprit. Or does anyone have one they're willing to lend?

So I guess this means I've won the Palkia race. Good luck to everyone else! Don't quit just because someone else beat you to it. It really is May Mayhem, and you'll never know what might shine around the corner!
Congrats on snatching Rubkia, MM! That was some fast Shiny there! Hope I have the same luck with my Eevee (With good IVs, I mean!). If it turns out to have some sucky IVs or the wrong nature, I'll just have to look for another one and evolve that one into some other evo that I like.
I finished checking another 30 Eevees' IVs some minutes ago and took a small break to do some other things, but now I'm going back to hatching eggs! Let's see the current egg count...
About 630! That doesn't look too shabby, does it? XD
Off I go to repetitive up n' down movement again!

P.S: Diamond/Pearl sucks for IV breeding, avoid it there at all costs. :'(

Well, they are born at Lvl 1 in D/P. At Lvl 1, the stat (IVs, per se) range of Pokémon is pretty impossible to see. You really can't determine EXACT IVs at Lvl 5 either, but it WILL let you know if it's any good or not without having to Rare Candy it up a bit, thus avoiding boxes filling up and a smooth control of the IVs passed down... I'm also breeding for a Shiny Eevee at the same time. In that sense, I open 30 eggs, stuff them into the box and then check their IVs...It takes up a lot of time, really... However, since some of them, at Lvl 6, seem somewhat decent, I then level up each one of them seperately with my current 32 Rare Candies and check IVs (Booooooooring). Some I may keep for future Eeveelutions or for breeding parents I can give someone else, but usually, nearly all of them are discarded. It makes it a pain, I tellz ye! PAIN!

Mega-Congratulations on the Palkia, MetalMario!!! I wish I had that luck with hatching a Charmander....

Speaking of which... I've been thinking about this... And I wonder, should I reset my FireRed in order to Soft-Reset for Charmander? Or should I continue my Egg hunt? Or maybe I just try to find a a copy of a FireRed/LeafGreen in a store!? Nah, I'll just continue my Egg hunt, seeing as I've never hatched a Shiny Egg before!! ^_^ Good luck to all, and congratulations again on the Palkia, MetalMario!! :D

Congrats LDD and MM, and anyone else I might have missed.. on your new shinies! I am quite jealous .

Runa, I hadn't even thought about how much different the breeding was! That really is a lot more trouble. Seems to me then, if you are breeding pokes that can be found in GBA generation, get one, trade it to Emerald and breed for it there. (of course I know you can't trade one from D&P to Emerald, I meant trade from FR/LG in your case)

I wish everyone much luck in your shiny hunting!

P.S. off topic but posted with on topic materials therefore making this P.S. completely legit I play WoW too, I'm out of time right now but I have a level 34 priest on my current server. (I can't remember which server I'm on since I've followed my friends and changed SO many times! I was on gnomergan before this last move) My daughter plays too, she has a level 64 priest on the same server I play on now. (I actually followed HER this time) I have to purchase a game card before I can play anymore but I'm sort of on a break now so I'm in no hurry. Shido and I started playing 2moons (free game sort of like wow) but I haven't played it in a while either. (Where are you Shido? Working I bet!)

Tabatha, I will check your lock and priest out in the armory. Maybe when I get a new game card I will come visit your server.

Yami, I meant to say Hi.. I must have missed something, why don't you have computer/internet access anymore? Are you away at school? That sounds terribly painful! I sure hope you get computer/internet access on a long term basis again soon.

I'm going to try something new today.. new to me anyway, lol. I knew about chaining but never tried it before. (beyond using the pokeradar once and saying, hmm, one day I will have to figure out how that works) After watching many youtube videos about it, I'm going to try it now.

After my internet being down for a while I am back with no new shiny's.

Congrats on Palkia MM. My Torchic hunt is still turning up nothing. I might do some chaining later. But just got planet Puzzle league so that is going to be my main thing to do tonight.

I'm gonna try to cut back on what I say. XD My posts have been and still are giant. o.o

Thanks for the friend request Tabatha. But this whole new User CP has me all confused. It still says that my "friends" have been sent friend requests? Strange.

I sure know Shiny Umbreon Hunter won't be getting to his anytime soon unless he randomly pops up. =P
And I hope some of those older people remember me. @_@'


I don't really count these traded shinies mine. In fact it's like they're a bad presence, but the person who sent them over had decent intentions, I'm certain that they had just collected them up. Some of them, yeah, I'd love.... such as Steelix. But it just doesn't feel right. I didn't work for it, and it's pretty easy these days to hack. :( (I.E. that Turtwig and Chimchar..)

So I'll probably give them all back to that guy/gal. I think it'd be the right thing to do anyway. =)


My chainer Pokemon is practically ready. I have a bond with what Pokemon it is, but it's still nothing like my Lucario. It'll do though for what few I'm going after on Pearl, and it's a good thing. I lack all my resources and confidence that I have back on Diamond.

But, I should be able to pull through, and hopefully my next post will be "omg shiny". :P


.... I still kinda miss the thrill of 3rd gen though. But at least this way I have a chance of having an actually good Pokemon with good IVs.
For some reason I'm very lucky with Speed stats, I think 3 of my shinies (if not more) have a 31 in Speed. My Staraptor is Adamant 15 Attack and 31 Speed. =)
