Simple: I find Grovyle to be way cooler than Sceptile, Shiny or not; that's me, though. Everything else seems like a matter of taste - Shiny Torchic and Combusken are yellow while Blaziken is a dark crimson.
Swampert, Swampert... *Shrugs* Can't think of anything, honestly.


News from me:
- No Shiny over here, but I went to the Colombo mall in Lisbon with my bro today and we both got Celebi Wonder Cards in each of our two games! I'll be SRing on one of them and resetting for a good IV'd Celebi on the other game.

Anyway... keep on hunting, people! Good luck and may you have many sparkles!
I saw this the day it went up, but I didn't want to reply yet because of the "don't make every other post" rule. Unfortunately, the next poster wouldn't let me post after him!

Thanks for the advice on evolving my shiny Hoenn starters! I'll make my final decision when I get Mudkip.

Congrats on the Celebi! Not many people have one! So you're going to be SRing for a shiny Celebi? That's going to be awesome - I don't know of anyone who can say he/she has a shiny Celebi!

Wonder card Pokemon can't be shiny. You can SR for good IVs, but they all have a shiny check on them like Reshiram, Zekrom, Victini, Zorua, and Zoroark in Black and White. And they weren't saying they had one, they're saying they went to the event in the UK to get the wonder card.

Here are a list of Pokemon that as of right now, can not be shiny. If they get it shiny, they are hacking:

Mew
Celebi
Victini
Zorua (You can't SR for it, you CAN breed for it)
Zoroark (Same conditions as Zorua)
Reshiram
Zekrom

----EDIT----

Made a new banner for y'all! :D



See the first post for proper credits. I made it all transparent because Zoroark is the master of ILLUSIONS. And invisibility is an illusion. See? :D

UK? Noooooooooooooope. We have the event going in the GAME stores throughout here and in Spain.

Anyway... Hey there, guys! Been playin' away on my Pokémon Black, so I've poofed off the face of the Earth for 3 days (people in my WoW guild were thinking I got hit by a car or something, yeowch), but I'm stopping by to look around and update you on things!

Been resetting for a good Reshiram and ended up with a Hasty; he's not too bad, so I kept him.

After I'm done doing most of what I can do, my first shiny target will be Boldore! The colouring on it looks great in Gigalith stage and it also reminds me of this!

Spoiler:


Thankfully enough, they look like they hub up in a nice EV training spot, so I'll be able to go through loads of them pretty quickly!

That's my note for today and as such, see you around, guys!

P.S: My Shinies are:
Staraptor
Tentacruel
Crobat
Floatzel
Pidgeotto
Golem

(The Eevee doesn't quite count, since while it's a real event Shiny, I got it from a player GTS distribution)

Good luck on your Boldore hunt. The image you posted reminded me more of Kyurem XD. But I like those colors (I like them even more on Gigalith!)

Wait, you crossed out the just kidding... I'm scared, now! Anyway, off to watching some anime - some hunting may come in the near future.

As co-owner of the Shiny Hunter's Club (wow, it feels awesome to say that!), I hereby appoint Runasutaru to "Guardian Spectre."

I'm sorry that the Celebi can't be shiny. At least you have one!

Landorus, you're going big! Aaryn + SkinnyGreenMan + various banner makers, all combined into one person? That's awesome, man! Keep up the great work!

I caught Staravia as a Staravia, so could you please remove Starly from the Dex from me? I figure it's okay because you already have one, so no harm done.

My parents would hate me if I got B/W, so I won't be able to get them until I'm in a game store by myself. Hopefully I'll be able to do this in a couple of weeks, but until then, I'm without 5th generation shinys. That's fine with me, though, since I don't even have the first 492 Pokemon shiny! :D

I posted this in the last incarnation, but here are my current hunts, fresh and prepared for first page-ish-ness and with percentages for how much shiny hunting time they are currently allotted::

Ruby: Nincada/Skitty/Zigzagoon/Whismur/Poochyena (grr...)/Taillow

Sapphire: Mudkip (95%)

FR: Hitmonlee (1%)

LG: various Game Corner assortments (I don't have the patience to get 80 Abra though, "lol." Good luck to ShinyDoug - it's monotonous!) (2%)

Emerald: Not much, really. I've mass-evacuated half of it to restart for Totodile and Cyndaquil, but I don't feel like playing through right now since I'll be playing through Sapphire soon (I hope!). Besides, it's going to take a really long time to trade over the hundreds of Pokemon I have there! ([lim x -> 0 f(x) = x]%)

Diamond: Drifloon (0.5%)

Pearl: the grass behind Lake Acuity (1%)

Platinum: Turtwig/Piplup/Chimchar (0.5%)

Heya, I am glad to see that this is revived. I would love to join. About 3-4 hours into Pokemon Black, I caught a Shiny Cottonee (low quality pic from phone coming right up):




Here are my shinies:
Random Encounter
Pidgey (FireRed)
Poochyena (Emerald)
Cottonee (Black)

Soft Reset
Lugia (Emerald)
Ho-oh (Emerald)
Groudon (Emerald)

Chaining (All in Pearl)
Nidoran M, Venomoth, Ponyta, Ariados, Voltorb, Corsola, Skitty, Banette, Absol, Shinx, Buizel, Buneary

RNG Abuse (in Diamond, Platinum and HG)
Uxie, Shellder, Croagunk, Magnemite, Vulpix, Swablu, Snover, Azumarill, Steelix, Shroomish, Metagross, Eevee, Gliscor, Trapinch, and probably more shinies that I forgot... I consider this method legit but I only do it for shiny colors I love.

I have no specific hunts right now (I gave up on Articuno/Cresselia...). Though, I can't complain. I have more than enough.
Even if it's a short life, burn hot and bright and overtake the moment. That's my way of life.

Welcome back, TwilightBlade!

Congrats on getting a shiny so soon into Black - these games seem to be lucky!

That's a nice list of shinys you have there, too! How did you get the Emerald SR ones? I've heard that the broken RNG prevents normal SRs, so did you walk around and resave every 100 SRs or something? I gave up SRing for Groudon in Emerald because I heard the game decided based on time since you turned the game on. Any tips for getting around this?

Personally, I wouldn't count the chained or RNG-abused shinys towards the Dex, but that's ultimately Landorus's decision. They're all really awesome shinys to have, but I just think it's more fun and rewarding to get 1/8192 shinys. That's just my personal opinion, though, so feel free to keep hunting whatever you want!

I did a few SRs for a Sinnoh starter today in Platinum, without luck. Each SR takes so long!! I could probably see 10 Hoenn starters in the time it takes to see one Sinnoh, "lol!"

Thanks. :o

For Poochyena, I was goofing around near Lilycove on my brother's Emerald. I restarted it later so I don't know what its shiny seeds were like. As for the legendaries, the shiny club members on Serebii convinced me to do something with my ticket. I didn't believe in Lady Luck and shinies (at this time I only had the ever-so-lame Poochyena and Pidgey). Suddenly, I found a shiny Lugia within... 500 resets? It took about 4 days. I was so excited so I then tried for Ho-oh, which took about 11 months. I later looked up RNG abusing on Emerald. I discovered that within about 40 seconds of boot up, my Emerald produced a shiny Pokemon. I used that knowledge to get a shiny Groudon (I forgot how long the hunt took but I caught it a year after the birds honestly). I never got around to catching anything else on my Emerald. As to get around it, leave the game on longer or restart your adventure (for a new ID and SID).

Hm well, chaining and RNG abusing requires knowledge, experience, and patience, just as any other well-planned hunt. :P

The Masuda Method was enhanced in Black/White: the odds of producing a shiny by breeding international parents is 6/8192 or about 1/1366. :3

I was also pretty excited when an NPC referred to these beauties as "Shiny Pokemon" so finally they're officially shiny instead of alternate color, huh?
Even if it's a short life, burn hot and bright and overtake the moment. That's my way of life.

This group seems interesting, mind if I join?

I have had a few shiny encounters in my time, which I am proud of. I won't list RNG abuse shinys since they don't count, but oh well. :P

My first one was a Golbat. I was on the way to Snowpoint City in Pearl and it just appeared out of nowhere. Of course, I caught it for myself, and it was amazing. My second and last random encounter was a Bidoof. I was EV training a Mareep and I came across the Bidoof (was training for HP EVs) and there were sparkles, and I was thinking "Did that thing just sparkle? o_O" I caught it and stuff.

Chaining I've only ever encountered a Doduo and a Stantler. I'm quite proud of the Doduo since I caught it and it was only on the second chain thingo, and it was amazing. It's a swarm Pokemon as well, so it doesn't appear all too often. Stantler was also kinda cool. I was just looking for one and it's like the same as Doduo, but it was on a chain of 6 instead of 2. I'm proud of those shinies. :D

Hello. It seems ironic that the original club just got closed one week ago, after I've been away for 10 months? o__0

Anyway, with Black & White and all their hype, I guess I've been pulled back out of the woodwork again, at least for the time being.

I'd like to re-join. I haven't found any shinies since Ho-oh last summer.

Please ring me up if you want a shiny database, automatic cards, or anything like that.

@TwilightBlade: Chaining, while drastically increasing the chances of getting a Shiny if you know what you're doing, is pretty much a valid method - after all, it still has a bit of randomness to it, even if you consider the very high chance of something appearing (if you were sorely unlucky, you might never get that Shiny until the end of time - at least in theory, since I don't know if seeds can not range that far).
RNG however, with the correct tools and proper experience, becomes a frame-skipping method that is completely guaranteed (albeit very long in some situations) if you follow the simplest methods, for example sniping down the first low-frame bred Shiny with random nature and IVs.

With that said, it all comes down to predictability - after all, Shiny Hunting is mostly a pretty developed form of gambling; you bet time on sparkles and sometimes, you win big time!

On another note: Yes, they're named Shiny Pokémon in the games, now! That was nice to see. Not sure if it's any influence from the regionalization teams, though... Heard something about the translation team being different from before?

In any case... Good luck with your hunts and see you around! May the sparkles embrace your future.

Chaining isn't the god method it's cracked up to be. Frustratingly, your chains often break even when you're following all the rules. The only unusual edge it gives you is being able to find lots of the same species of shiny once you've made it to 40, and that's why this club (or at least the original?) only counts one per chain.

RNGing is obviously abusing a loophole, and isn't in the spirit of shiny hunting.

I guess since this is a new club, I ought to post the complete listing of shinies I've captured ... but it's long:

Spoiler:

1. Linoone - Met in Sapphire while collecting berries
2. Jumpluff (as Hoppip) - Met in Fire Red while EV training
3. Exploud (as Whismur) - Met in Sapphire while EV training

5. Hoppip - Met in Fire Red while EV training
6. Dragonite (as Dratini) - Soft reset at Fire Red Game Corner
7. Ludicolo (as Lotad) - Met in Sapphire while searching for shiny Seviper in grass (ohhhh this brings me back xD)
8. Ariados (as Spinarak) - Met in Fire Red while searching for shiny buggggzzzz
9. Camerupt (as Numel) - Met in Emerald while
10. Altaria (as Swablu) - Met in Sapphire while searching for shiny Seviper in grass (again. also fyi, I found Pokerus while on this futile Seviper hunt)
11. Pidgeot (as Pidgeotto) - Met in Fire Red while collecting berries
12. Butterfree (as Metapod) - Met in Fire Red while searching for shiny Weedle
13. Fearow (as Spearow) - Met in Fire Red while searching for shiny Drowzee
14. Politoed (as Poliwag) - Found by fishing in Fire Red
15. Alakazam (as Abra) - Soft reset at Fire Red Game Corner
16. Drifblim (as Drifloon) - Soft reset on Pearl
17. Sceptile (as Treecko) - Soft reset as starter in Sapphire
18. Palkia - Soft reset on Pearl
19. Starly - Chained in Pearl
20. Seviper - Chained in Pearl
21. Swellow - Chained in Pearl
22. Ampharos (as Mareep) - Chained in Pearl
23. Weavile (as Sneasel) - Chained in Pearl
24. Delibird - Chained in Pearl
25. Absol - Chained in Pearl
26. Nosepass - Chained in Pearl
27. Roselia - Chained in Pearl
28. Espeon (as Eevee) - Chained in Pearl
29. Glalie (as Snorunt) - Chained in Pearl
30. Sneasel - This bugger BROKE the above Snorunt chain
31. Golem (as Graveler) - Met in Diamond while level training
32. Dialga - Soft reset in Diamond
33. Rotom - Soft reset in Pearl
34. Buneary - Chained in Pearl
35. Ledian - Chained in Pearl
36. Drapion (as Skorupi) - Masuda bred in Pearl
--. Probopass (as Nosepass) - Chained in Pearl
37. Gardevoir (as Ralts) - Chained in Pearl
38. Metagross (as Beldum) - Chained in Pearl
39. Lunatone - Chained in Pearl
40. Flygon (as Vibrava) - Chained in Pearl
41. Bronzor - Chained in Pearl
42. Stantler - Chained in Pearl (edit)
--. Roserade (as Roselia) - Chained in Pearl (edit)
43. Totodile - Soft reset in Soul Silver (edit)
44. Ho-oh - Soft reset in Heart Gold


Also I have 2x Red Gyarados, 1x PCP and 5x each of the three dogs from mystery gift.

Edit: I just noticed a few chained shinies are missing from my list. I will return with them as soon as I have access to my games.

MM's back!!! :D

It's an honor to officially welcome back the #1 poster of the SHC! *handshake*

Welcome to the club, Alternative! Landorus gets to decide whether or not chained shinys count towards the Dex, but you have them, so congrats! Doduo and Stantler are pretty rare shinys - I haven't seen too many people with those ones. I always think it's special to have a shiny no one else has. And you got them on chains of 6 and 2? That's almost like getting normal shinys, since the rarity is still nearly 1/7000, which I'd say is pretty rare!

Twilight, thanks for the motivation on the Emerald resets! I always thought it was futile, but you might've just given me hope that I will be able to get a shiny Groudon after all! There's a chance I could go for the whole Hoenn bunch, which would be pretty awesome. *adds Groudon to list of future targets*

I like the comparison of shiny hunting to gambling, Ru. "lol" I guess it is like betting that your time will pay off!

Black and White sound really cool, too. Shinys have been given the name officially? That's awesome. We have some mainstream legitimacy now, "lol."

Oh, awesome! This FC was originally created on my birthday! 8D Uhm, hmm, may I join~? I love the title of this club. It sounds like one of those monster hunting clubs in a Final Fantasy game. I'm a Viera, btw.

The only legal shinys I have are a pink Sneasel and a golden Ratatata.

eta: Does shiny hunting on VDex count? I caught a shiny Litwick there. n_n

I was in the previous club, so I would like to rejoin!

My most recent shiny was shiny Staryu, but that was lots of months ago on Diamond. I was trying to hatch a shiny Duskull also but I never played Diamond enough to hatch it time before Black and White came out.

So right now I have Black and I have been playing it since Monday, I'm not really shiny hunting yet but I'm hoping for a random encounter.

I am a member of the Shiny Hunters Club!

Welcome to the club, dithyrambos, Evil Sonic, and AshyBird!

Congrats on the Staryu, Evil Sonic! Sorry for being 13 months late, "lol!" :D

I spent about an hour SRing for shiny Hitmonlee yesterday. As you might have guessed from my lack of caps lock euphoria, it failed to yield a shiny. :D

And I'll admit it, Landorus - you were right! Restarting the club did end up getting a lot more members! We've had more posts this week than the old SHC had in several months!

Sorry dithyrambos, but we're not counting VDex shinys. Only shinys from the mainstream games count, as well as Colloseum and XD (as well as Jirachi from the bonus disk and Manaphy from Ranger). You guys are lucky Landorus is letting you count MM and chained shinys! *grumbles about AshyBird's ridiculously large amount of shinys*

I'm probably against the flow of popular opinion here, but I'm disappointed to hear that B/W MMing is up to 1/1366. Everyone and their brother is going to have an army of shinys popping out of eggs left and right! Maybe it'll make the legends more valuable? *returns to SRing*

I personally find it useless to breed for a Shiny unless I'm doing something productive - heck, any type of hunt, usually (won't be able to do that for Boldore because of Sturdy) - so if I'm not breeding for proper IVs, it's gonna suck. Since foreign Pokémon would be inflexible, it's pretty much pointless for me... I keep gambling with 1/8192.

Not Shiny hunting yet, still progressing in the main game, by the way! My party is around Lvl 57-60, right now.

Welcome to the new people, good luck with hunts and see ya soon!

Congrats on the Staryu, and welcome to the club!

If you want your shinies added to the Pokedex, post a list or PM me (trades do not count.) Preferably PM.

Please differentiate between shinies you caught yourself, and shinies you got in a trade so I can put your shinies in the Pokedex.

Only shinies you caught count.

Also, you can just wrap font codes around the entire message, instead of around every sentence.

Yay for me being right. >:3 Muahahaha (Just kidding, I don't care if I am right or not lol)

Small note, Manaphy from Ranger can't be shiny. Anyone who has a shiny Manaphy hacked it. Phione however can be shiny.

Another small note, hatched 1366 eggs takes about twice as long as 8192 SRs while dual encountering. The only Pokemon that is an exception is Magikarp while using Flame Body/Magma Armor. So, it's still a valid method (just as much as SRing) in my personal opinion.

I am also doing the same. I am just playing through the game right now. In the..3D city. I don't remember it's English name. Just training some Victini using the hundreds of trainers in the city. Of course I wont get a shiny from them, but I might when I get more Pokemon and start using the grass more after 3D City!

A storm is coming my way tonight. It may or may not be extremely bad. The news is not quite sure. If it is, I will have school off tomorrow and be able to play all day! Also, next week is OGT (Ohio Graduation Test) week, since I am a senior and only Sophomores have to take it, I get out at 12:30 PM everyday instead of 3:25 PM, that's nearly 3 more hours everyday. <3

Manaphy can be shiny, but it's really, really hard to get. Speaking of comparative rarity, Manaphy might just be the most difficult shiny to obtain legitimately while still being possible:

Like the others, a shiny PV is thrown out if calculated, meaning it cannot be shiny under normal circumstances. However, if you trade it to another game, the set of PVs which yield shinies, as we know, changes, so the egg's PV might now yield a shiny. They tried to shut down this trick, as well, but they messed up. They tried to replace your shiny Manaphy with a new, non-shiny one right as it hatched, but they messed up and checked the OT of the Egg rather than the ID of the trainer who hatched it, so we can, indeed, get shiny Manaphy. Putting it all together, here's how it has to work:

1. Take the Manaphy egg from the green man.
2. Have a new, restartable D/P game handy.
3. Trade the egg to this game. Save the game right away.
4. Prehatch the egg, ensuring you don't save during the process. (Saving will waste precious steps, and you'll need all the steps you can get if you want to be able to perform lots of SRs.)
5. If the Manaphy is not shiny, SR your game and trade the egg back to the first game. (IMPORTANT! Manaphy will NOT appear as shiny on the egg hatch animation. You must check its stats screen afterward.)
6. Delete the savefile on your second game, begin a new adventure, and repeat the process as soon as possible.
7. Warning: The use of external devices to discover the hidden ID of your new savefiles (and speed up the process, avoiding the lengthy hatching process), or to fix them to make sure the egg is a shiny will constitute cheating, and will exempt your Manaphy from qualifying as legitimate. Roll of the dice--remember that.
That actually sounds like a really good idea. It would take forever, but the result would definitely be worth it! Once I finish my current hunts, I might do that, even though it'll probably take years, "lol." An hour per reset? :D Talk about being rewarded for your effort!

True, it does take longer to hatch 1366 eggs than it does to dual reset 8192 Pokemon. However, it would take longer to hatch 8192 eggs than to hatch 1366 eggs! :D Haha, we'll agree to disagree. Just don't laugh at my relative lack of shinys! *thinks of other excuses*

I hope you get tomorrow off! 12 hours of Pokemon is always awesome, and it maximizes your daily chances! :D

EDIT: MM, do you know if it's possible to get a shiny Manaphy in Platinum, or was the game made so that Manaphy can never be shiny? Platinum is my only HRable 4th gen game, as I'm SRing for the starters and could do it rather easily, without having to restart D/P.
