Nothing new here, really.
Yesterday I got to Giratina in Platinum, and did around 350 or so SRs.
I also chained for a shiny Mareep for a friend, and it was hell because it was in my shiny Diamond.
The shiny patch appeared at 18, and then the chain broke right after that. I entered a safe patch, dammit!

So that's it for this time, and hopefully Giratina shines sooner than later. Good luck to all.

Thanks DDD for that clear and concise explanation. Congrats MM, on your "Easter Bunny" I'm going to try to do the foreign Pokemon breeding thing just to see if I get lucky. Even if it doesn't count for SHC it will be neat to see if it seems to help.

No, I think we're counting the Masuda shinies as truly "random". MetalMario said something about odds over 1,000 can be treated as Random here. None of this 1/1 Egg or 1/1 Emerald RNG, nor PokéRadar (Unless it is a number lower than 21). So ya... I really wanna try it too, but not until I get my Giratina to shine. I just passed 500 SRs for it. I plan on getting to somewhere around 1,200 tomorrow.

Good luck to all.

Welcome to the club, Rey and FinalPaladin. Have a good time here. ^^

Easter Peeps

Spoiler:


Haha! Yes! Only THIS one isn't headed to the microwave!

174th egg was shiny. =)

It has a Serious nature - not bad but not exactly good. Nevertheless it could've been a lot worse, I was worried it would be Relaxed..

Last night when I finally quit about 3 AM I had about 120 eggs. Same as before, I started hatching when I got up this morning. I was shooting for tomorrow, but it just had to hatch early. =P

Hee hee hee! Yes! YESH!!!

Good luck everyone =D

*dances*
Congratulations on the Torchic. :D

I closed my DS while standing in front of a shiny patch, found early at only a 5-chain. I will only open it and catch the shiny in another 12 minutes for a reason which should become clear.

Edit: Easter Bunny GET!


Stat screen pics coming maybe.
Congratulations on the Buneary. :D

Aw, lovely shiny, especially for Easter. I tried the Masuda Method but I didn't have any success... Besides, I'd like a beneficial nature.


Woah, nice Easter shiny. ^_^ I caught my shiny Buneary last April Fools, since I thought it would be more appropriate, for whatever reason.. XD

Congrats on the rest of the amazing captures. ^o^


Hmm, a big chain in general? Probably anything over 70+, but something amazing is 120+. I believe that the highest I've seen is about 250+.

Still, you should only aim to hit 40 when looking for shinies, unless you're trying to simply get a high chain. Good luck.

Anyways, my Easter shiny: It sure looks yummy
Congratulations on the Beldum.

Well, I'm currently at 2050 Eggs so far in my search (I started using the "Junichi Masuda" way at around about the 1540th Egg, so that's been about 510 Eggs using the "Foreign Method"), but nothing so far. Well, I'm hoping for something maybe in the next batch, but we'll see. Later. ^^

Well that 1/1000 is actually the criteria for uniqueness. So any shiny found by odds lower than 1/1000 counts as being unique. Since you kind of "make your own odds" by chaining up in the radar, I consider each chain unique. Thus, only one shiny found on a long chain may count, and only if it's the first shiny found on this chain. (So you have to find TWO early shiny patches on the same chain to count more than one of that species.)

Nothing new. Chaining Ralts for now. This Masuda breeding isn't nearly as easy as everyone makes it look.

Haha, good luck on Shaymin!

I haven't been able to post recently I have been too busy to hunt and post. I am at my dads house now though. I am playing through my Jpn Pearl to get a ditto and trade it to Platinum. I want to hatch a shiny Rotom. Good luck to everyone else!

So I was just going over the stats in my head that I had only hatched 325 eggs, and even with the Masuda method, it still usually goes past 1000 eggs, meaning I still probably had a lot of time to go. Right then, this thing pops up and stares me in the face:


page 1 | page 2 | page 3 | page 4

Good luck with Giratina, Charmander and Shaymin. I'm going to go after an Origin Giratina once I've made it that far in Platinum. (Still saved in front of my starter, but I might switch to breeding Turtwig, since you can't control the nature of an SR anyway, and I could get some Egg Moves and maybe good IVs.)

Hahhaha! Yes! YES! YESS!!!!!
Congratulations! lol!
They ALWAYS strike when you least expect it.

That red is quite tantalizing, I must say!


I'm currently hatching Mudkipz. I'll make it no mystery that I'd like to have a full set of shiny Hoenn starters, but yeesh, it's not as easy as it looks. I could have hatched a lot more than I currently have (MAYBE 180, I think?), but sickness has really hit me hard. I only started feeling better yesterday.
So tomorrow I plan to hatch more Mudkipz. I'm not really trying too hard, nor trying to get a great one either, unlike my Eevee and Torchic. So once I get it, who knows when, I'll move on to Treecko.

I was actually getting under some pressure of this, since a lot of people I know seem to be having bad luck with it and are passing it off as fake, but I very well know I or anyone else may have to hatch many eggs still in order to hatch a shiny through this method.

Some are having an average time hatching, ranging from around 100 eggs hatched to around 700 which is reasonable. One dude I've talked to had to hatch over 3,000 eggs.. ouch.
What disappoints me is that people hatch like 100 (or even less) and lose interest. If you really want something, you'll keep at it and not quit. And the quitters are who are starting rumors that it doesn't work.

So I'm glad to see more results, and I'm looking forward to hatching my Mudkip, whenever it comes.


But for now I must go to bed and rest, and try to get back on a NORMAL sleeping schedule... Being sick has really thrown me for a loop.

I'd like to get started back on an old SR target and my two chain targets as well.

Good luck everyone!

Breed a foreign pokemon with a native pokemon and the chance of hatching a shiny is reduced to about 1/2000. For example, breed a Japanese Ditto with a Gyarados/Seaking caught in your game. Conversely, breed a Ditto caught in your game with a Japanese Gyarados/Seaking.

Masuda merely promoted the use the GTS by adding in the shiny quirk of breeding pokemon obtained from the GTS.

Congrats on the sexy shiny Skorupi, MM. :3

my team to beat thr elte four is.
Lvl 70 Staraptor (shiny).
Lvl 58 Bronzong (shiny).
Lvl 69 Abomasnow (shiny).
Lvl 78 Toxicroak (shiny).
Lvl 98 Empoleon not shiny.
my empoleon took forever to lvl up but the i decided to search for shinies, lucky i have great patience.
i looked forever to find a croagunk and then took a long time to get it to toxicroak.
i almost gave up on the snover until it learnt wood hammer at lvl 36 it killed me.
the bronzong was easy didnt take long i thought.
one time when i first played daimond i think i found a starly and it sparkled, didnt know what this was so i asked my friend, said it was shiny and rare, so went back and caught it with an ultra ball.
this hole process took a veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy looooooooooooooooooong time.

Nice, I used to have a Shiny Abra, but traded it away. I'll try to get another one as soon as I hatch my prize.

Good luck on that Croagunk.

As for me, the amounts of Eggs I've hatched has gone up, but I forgot by how much. I'm currently taking a break from Diamond (2) as I'm playing through Platinum at the moment. As soon as I beat the Elite Four (I'm going for the Canalave Gym right now), I'm continuing my hunt. ^_^ Oh, and remember the Secret Key is available right now. :D

Awfully lucky with those SRs. .__. Which starter is it you speak of?

I've quit my Turtwig SRing to move along so I can pick up a Rotom Key tomorrow. Turtwig will be my next Masuda Breed.

Not only is my computer 100% down the t00bs, but I'm grounded.

Whoo!

This sucks. No hunting for Mencey for two weeks or more.
But I've moved on from Tina for the Turnback Cave variant in Platinum, and I'm now in front of Dialga. I have around 6,300+ resets, but I don't really remember my count.
I'm also back to hunting the Zap-Bird in LeafGreen, which I have hidden to assure my shiny Tangela and Articuno are safe from my mentally unstable brother. He annoys me, I tell him to shut up, and he steals LeafGreen and tries to delete my file. I ripped the game out, beat him up, and now it's stashed away where nobody will ever find it.

Damn, life's been kicking me in the face lately.

Good luck, all.
