Congrats Fufu. *hugs*

You all seem to be doing well with out the old co-owners watching your backs like hawks. The place seems to have slowed down, but with any luck do you think the the G/S remakes will draw in a crowd?

Shiny UPDATE: Caught a Tentacool and a Roselia during the time I was gone.

hey guys - are the "pickachu colored" pichus (which are actually shiny pichus) that come from the current nintendo wifi event legit enough to be celebrated here? because i got myself one of them and it is now a shiny raichu. it looks like this except it's sharper when i look at it with my eyes rather than a cell phone camera:

for those that haven't claimed their shiny pichu yet, if you go to 'mystery gift' on the game's opening menu, then hit 'receive gift' and then 'get via nintendo wfc' (and you've already configured your DS's wifi settings), it should be there. sorry if that's redundant or irrelevant but i thought it was kinda cool.
edit: what's the shiny hunter card updating situation like these days?

And that's basically it! I can't believe that I got it today, either; I was seriously starting to think I wouldn't get a new shiny until well after HG/SS were released...

Good luck everyone!
Congrats on the Heracross. 8D

Good to see you around, Darkmoon. =D
Co-owner sightings are as rare as Mew sightings in this club nowadays. |D
Maybe that will do the trick. 8D
Congratulations on the Tentacool and Roselia. =)

If the Pichu count, I have three then (one on each of my games). |D

About the Shiny Hunter Cards...
Well the two that provided them, Yami_Zidane and MetalMario, haven't been around for quite some time now, though they do pop in every now and then, just like how Lady Demoonica Darkmoon just did. And when they do, it's just to update their status. So no SHC are available at the moment... x:

Omg, I've been away for too long! Again... -.-

Ryan and Demoonica are here? I'm glad the club is in good hands!

So yes, HGSS have brought me out of the woodwork. I'm soft-resetting for a starter on Soul Silver right now @ 64 SRs.

I'll do my best to kick around, though I have a TON of things on my plate.

They are Cert Shinies, so yes, you may count one. (But just one! ^,^) The same applies to the Red Gyarados and friends. (See, Demoonica? I wasn't discriminating against your Berry Zigzagoon army. I was trying to prevent Red Gyarados Madness all along!)

Say, if you or anyone else here can give me a crash course in animated GIF manipulation in GDI+, I can get the cards going again in no time.

Also, everyone who has requested to join since my last post, except Calder, you are admitted to the club.

*laughs* Yeah, it has been a long time I was last seen here, I'm as rare to find here as the Shinys we hunt. Thanks for the congrats. (And if we are counting "free" shinies then +Pichu (I also have 3) & +Gyrados)

UPDATE: Failed at the hunt to get the Cyndaquil before the games came out. HOWEVER I have already gotten through the PKMN league at 15:30 hours, and right now have 14 of 16 badges (Brock and Gary/Blue to go) I haven't seen any shiny in the game yet save the freebie Gyrados.

Everyone needs a good update to those poor cards. I would love one if you ever got around to it.

And really don't think I have been here in almost a year, so don't look at me to keep you all in line (all of us co-owners actually) How often do we pop out of the woodwork? Not much.

*rolls eyes* 2 was hardly an army of them. However, I still get 3 (2 Zigs, 1 Linoon) on the card of the evo-line not counting the one extra berry one. I think Shido had more and was being difficult (he's my friend, but sometimes...)

So, SHC lets say it's this time next year, do you think the only 5th Gen Poke we know right now would be something you would hunt for as a Shiny?

This depends very much on if they mess up its shiny colours or not. Zoroark already looks quite beautiful, so it wouldn't be too big a loss if it has an ugly shiny.

451 SRs done for my Soul Silver Shiny Starter.

Oh my lord, MetalMario actually posted TWICE on the same page...and both LDD and ryan posted! LDD posted like four times, WTFHAX?!?

Welcome back all of you.

I got both HG/SS on March 14th, and I have been SRing for a shiny starter since then. I'm just stopping by to say that I got a new shiny again...a shiny Cyndaquil on HearGold! #2 for March Madness.

Here are some pics and such:

Spoiler:





I was hoping to get it in SoulSilver, but I don't really mind! Still SRing for a shiny starter on SS, too.

Good luck, everyone!

Hmm...

Since the first post is frozen and doesn't actually contain the details on what kinds of shinies count, I'll give you a break. But we don't acknowledge any shinies found with the help of cheat devices, whether directly or not. You are tentatively admitted.

727 starter SRs on Soul Silver.

True, but with it seeming to be a yoko/kitsune I'd like to see it done in either a red orange colour or white and gold. (As the drastic colour change with the type would be nice.)

I hate you (not really) The Cyndaquil must hate me though. *poke eggs* Hatch shiny drat you! Well... I do have Gold siting there unopened, I might start resets for it too... but we all know how much I hate resets (no attention span or patients, no not at all) Heh.

Anyway, no real news on the shiny front. *cuddles Fufu's Cyndaquil*

Well, I'm just loving my HeartGold version at the moment. ^____^

Early this morning at around 12 AM, I randomly stumbled upon a shiny Raticate in the Burned Tower. I was looking for items with the Dowsing Machine (which is really a godsend, you must try it out sometime). It is female, and it has a Quirky nature. I encountered it at level 15, but I trained it since then. The reason why it's at a different level in the picture is because I took the picture when I got back from school.

Spoiler:






408 SRs for a Johto starter on SoulSilver. Good luck everyone!

Edit: Here's the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzVpM4c4M04

Edit2: I return with yet another shiny. 0_0

Quote originally posted by Me from Serebii:

I've been so ridiculously lucky these past few days, it's amazing. I don't even know why!

I was playing through HeartGold this morning in order to get closer to Ho-oh. I started from Olivine, and I went to Mahogany. I explored Lake of Rage a bit, caught the Red Gyarados, then I proceeded to take on the Rockets at their hideout. After I defeated all of their members, I learned that I had to faint three Electrodes in order to cut off the power supply for the broadcasting signal. Knowing that Electrode gives out Speed EVs, I put my shiny Quilava up front.

First Electrode: Easily dispatched with two Flame Wheels.

Second Electrode: This one took longer because I decided to use Ember instead of Flame Wheel. :p

Third Electrode: SHINY?!?!? What the hell?!?

I must reiterate one important point; I was NOT looking for a shiny Electrode at ALL. This is as random as it gets folks, you can believe that...

I was able to tell that it was shiny as it scrolled across the screen; after seeing two Electrode with red bellies, it's kind of hard not to notice a blue one, haha. I was so shocked that I didn't even think to close the DS to catch the initial stars on film. I just stared in awe with my mouth agape as the periwinkle sphere showed itself.

The battle was moving along slowly until my Ampharos scored a critical hit with Thundershock on the shiny Electrode. That critical hit was TOO close. I'm so glad that I waited until it used Light Screen before I attacked with Ampharos again. I even said in the video that I didn't feel comfortable with how much damage a non-Light Screen'd Thundershock did. I'm no Psychic or anything, but I hope that by watching the video you guys realize how important it is to be cautious when you're fighting shinies. Things like critical hits can happen at any time, and if it weren't for my prudence, I would have killed this shiny. x___X

Here are Electrode's stats:

Electrode (Bold)
HP - 62
Attack - 28
Defense - 46
SAtk - 45
SDef - 44
Speed - 72

Not the best nature, and I can't tell the exact IVs just from looking at them, but in the end, I don't really mind. I'll take a shiny over a competitive Pokemon any day. *_* It's a shame it doesn't have Soundproof, though, it would've been nice to use it for hunting for things like Growlithe and Vulpix...oh well, I can still use it to hunt for Electric type shinies.

Here are some pictures.

Spoiler:





I was thinking about using my shiny Electrode in place of shiny Ampharos, but I figured it would just be too cumbersome to train this Electrode 10+ levels just to have it catch up with the rest of my party. Furthermore, Electrode's in game movepool isn't as wide as Ampharos'.

My next target on HeartGold is Ho-oh when I get to it. I'm still hunting for the shiny starters on SS, too.

Good luck everyone, and congratulations on any new shinies that have been recently obtained!
I'll update this post with the video when it finishes uploading.

Edit: Video of my shiny Electrode

*sigh* And still yet I haven't found a single shiny in my own HeartGold game, and I just drilled Clair and haven't blown through the game at all, I've been picking everything clean as I go.... oh well.

I don't really count the freebie Gyarados personally. I already hatched my own last year that's way better than any evolution-induced mutant.



But on another note...


One of the reasons I showed up is people seem to believe that HG/SS have increased shiny appearance rates (apparently this isn't for me, and it's especially cranked up for Fufu ).

But that's not all. Supposedly you can get shiny Pokemon from the PokeWalker as well.

At first my friend told me it wasn't possible, because the ID is set when you connect to the Walker so you'll either get no shinies or all shinies from it.

But...

With a little internet searching, it seems that this may be false, or there's a crapload of liars out there strewn all across the internet that seemingly all have to do with the Walker and shiny Pokemon. I remember one post about getting a shiny Venonat and another Pokemon from it, amongst others.

So naturally I've been testing it out, to no avail.

In fact the catching mechanism on that thing has made me want to throw it, stomp it, and take a sledgehammer and smash it.... you get the idea. A Pokemon can have one bar of health an still bust out of the PokeBall, so it's still luck based as ever.

But and interesting note is that the "tool" used to catch Pokemon on it is called the PokeRadar. And you can hold three Pokemon at once.

So I'm suspecting that if you're able to successfully catch the same Pokemon in a row, your shiny chances may go up.

This is all just speculation though. After many failed attempts (SUNKERN fled! ****!!), I'm starting to believe my friend more. I almost have a whole box of Sunkern, and now I've switched to Night Sky's Edge for Onix....

*sigh*


I haven't gotten a new shiny since last year's Skarmory, Baltoy and Mudkip. I've taken a very, very long break because of YouTube, and I'm just not that into battling competitively anymore.


But I still want shiny Pokemon, and I want to get one on HeartGold as soon as possible....

*laughs* I know that one, I did the same thing back in the days of the original games. (The post is back in that 700 page mess some place.) It's like that 3rd Electrode wants us to catch it, so it pops out shiny.

Congratulations Fufu, your luck this past week is amazing!

@ Froggy_00 - Welcome to the club, have you had any luck with shinys before?

It's Just Fufu: Congratulations on the Cyndaquil, Raticate, and the Electrode.
Massive win on your part. 8D

Then I'll add Pichu to my list, making two Pichu (one I chained, and the Event one).

*sigh* And still yet I haven't found a single shiny in my own HeartGold game, and I just drilled Clair and haven't blown through the game at all, I've been picking everything clean as I go.... oh well.

I don't really count the freebie Gyarados personally. I already hatched my own last year that's way better than any evolution-induced mutant. :P



But on another note...


One of the reasons I showed up is people seem to believe that HG/SS have increased shiny appearance rates (apparently this isn't for me, and it's especially cranked up for Fufu :P).

But that's not all. Supposedly you can get shiny Pokemon from the PokeWalker as well.

At first my friend told me it wasn't possible, because the ID is set when you connect to the Walker so you'll either get no shinies or all shinies from it.

But...

With a little internet searching, it seems that this may be false, or there's a crapload of liars out there strewn all across the internet that seemingly all have to do with the Walker and shiny Pokemon. I remember one post about getting a shiny Venonat and another Pokemon from it, amongst others.

So naturally I've been testing it out, to no avail.

In fact the catching mechanism on that thing has made me want to throw it, stomp it, and take a sledgehammer and smash it.... you get the idea. A Pokemon can have one bar of health an still bust out of the PokeBall, so it's still luck based as ever.

But and interesting note is that the "tool" used to catch Pokemon on it is called the PokeRadar. And you can hold three Pokemon at once.

So I'm suspecting that if you're able to successfully catch the same Pokemon in a row, your shiny chances may go up.

This is all just speculation though. After many failed attempts (SUNKERN fled! ****!!), I'm starting to believe my friend more. I almost have a whole box of Sunkern, and now I've switched to Night Sky's Edge for Onix....

*sigh*


I haven't gotten a new shiny since last year's Skarmory, Baltoy and Mudkip. I've taken a very, very long break because of YouTube, and I'm just not that into battling competitively anymore.


But I still want shiny Pokemon, and I want to get one on HeartGold as soon as possible....
!!
Even DDD has appeared!? D8
Welcome back as well. =D

*Spoiler-Tagged this as it's long...*

Oh btw I'm new here :P

I'm currently SRing for the first time. Going to try for Ho-oh, and I'm at 400 SRs already. Wish me luck :)
Welcome the club, Froggy_00. Hope you have a good time here. =D

And what he said.
This place hasn't been this active for a long time now. ^_^
As I have yet to get Soul Silver (fails), I haven't tried hunting there...
But I am going to go for a Starly in Platinum, cause I want a Shiny one.
Later.

Also Aaryn, SGM, and Pazzkat. Then we'd be in business! :D

1526 starter triads. The beatmapping contest over at osu! has ended, so I may have more time for hunting now, work permitting. ._.

*laughs* I know that one, I did the same thing back in the days of the original games. (The post is back in that 700 page mess some place.) It's like that 3rd Electrode wants us to catch it, so it pops out shiny.

Congratulations Fufu, your luck this past week is amazing!

@ Froggy_00 - Welcome to the club, have you had any luck with shinys before?
Yes I have had luck with shinies before -looks at sig-

As for soft resetting, none at all. SRing shiny Ho-oh is my first attempt at an SR shiny and I'm determined to get it no matter what. It's a shame that you never know how long it'll take though

lol every post of mine is long.

I have 3 Kanto badges now and no shiny yet. But I'm gonna poke around a little and see if I can find anything. This is Kanto, after all, and I haven't been here much in the original G/S/C, so most of this stuff is pretty foggy. The Leaders here totally bring the heat though, as it should be. I traded over 6 of my shiny Pokemon to make it easier cuz I'm not training Lv. 40 Pokemon that I have no real intentions of using. It makes stuff too easy, but I'm not sure how much since they're all lv. 60 and half the time they're just 10 levels higher than the Trainer/Leader Pokemon. So I better watch my step.

As far as the Walker goes, nothing yet. Mainly cuz they keep running away or I keep critical killing them. =<

I need a new shiny soon.

and thanks for all the welcomings going and and here's some more to all those who decided to return around the same time I did. lol

Well, I'm at 1400 resets for shiny Ho-oh. I just can't wait to see the gold bird on my screen >_<

Good luck on all your shiny hunts everyone :D

60+ hours logged into Silver and still no wild shiny, I'm just wandering around in it, some of the best memories are of shinies I wasn't looking for. I'm raising my Red 'Dos. Can I say I hate Brocks team? I didn't raise anything to take on a rock/water type so I ended up sending over my lvl 100 Shiny Bellosom for that battle. Over kill, heh, but oh well.

Keep up the good work everyone. Soon a shiny will appear!

Like many before me, I am Soft Resetting for a Shiny Ho Oh, this would be my fourth day so far. I shall name it "PhoEniX"

After that I am Masuda Method hatching a shiny Eevee, to be named "Fennec"


After that I will beat Red and head to Oak and soft reset for a shiny Charmander that I shall name Toothless (because shiny Charizard really reminds me of that dragon from How to Train Your Dragon :3)


Then I shall soft reset for a shiny Rayquaza that I shall name XD666.
