Yes!

For some reason, I have luck now. And believe me, I'm incredibly grateful!

So people, allow me to explain. As I have said before, I am on a quest to get all the dragon and fire type shinies of every generation. I do not make progress quickly; I declared this goal over a year ago, and I've yet to make a huge dent in it. But on May 26th at about 11:17 PM, I got one step closer to reaching my goal!

What shiny did I get?

Shiny Swablu!

I have pictures and a video, but it is late, and I am too lazy to upload them. I will tell you, however, that my newfound beauty is female, captured at level 17 with a Premier Ball. It has a Careful nature, and it will certainly become a shiny Altaria! It appeared after exactly 6402 encounters Of course, I will upload the video (bad because I speak softly) and pictures tomorrow.

Good luck to all!

WAAAAT?

That's just evil, I've always wanted a female shiny Swablu with a Careful Nature. You're lucky! Train her well!


So, I just got off my procrastination butt and started drawing the bird picture, oh, and to all, no shinies yet.

Wow G-Money and the SHC. That means a lot to me, and surely hope to not disappoint you guys in anyway, going with a few of my friends will be good as well.

@G-Money, I would have if I had more pokes that were shiny and it's gen v. lol

Good luck on your hunts everyone, I've gotten to about 400 SR's for Snivy in my White Version while doing everything else

Next up, I'll be alternating between Torkoal, Spheal, and Cacnea on R/S as well as Paras and Staryu on FR/LG. It feels like it's been forever since my last FR/LG shiny...

Good luck to all!

Thanks for the info on IVs. It sounds like your imminent shiny Litwick is going to be a powerhouse!

Don't worry about your lack of MM shinies so far. 900 eggs hatched is the most I've seen from a Masuda hunt, so you're just on the other end of the spectrum right now. If you keep it up, you're bound to get more shinies more quickly. I'm really starting to doubt that the average MM shiny is 1/1366, since I haven't seen anyone take more than that, and the vast majority have come in under 200 eggs. Maybe it's 1/136.6? Example:

Congrats! Shiny Watchog is universally considered to be a cool shiny, so make sure you give it the love it deserves!

When you get a chance, would you mind loaning some luck to Latios Master? He's hatched nearly 70 times more eggs than you...

Wow... only 13 eggs? Is it that I'm really unlucky or everybody else is just extremely lucky? (others have gotten it in like less than 10 tries)
I know I've told you this before, but that 493 always amazes me. I'm working on that in SS, and I have around 31, "lol."

I'm not sure if you're unlucky or if everyone else is lucky. There have been way too many cases of people getting MM shinies in less than 100 eggs, and I'd even venture to say that a statistically disproportionate number of shinies have come in 20 eggs or less. I should go back and find all the MM shinies in this thread and see what our average is...

Welcome to the SHC! I was hoping you'd join! PinkPirate told me that you got a shiny Manaphy, and that encouraged me to start my own hunt. As far as I know, you're the only person ever to hatch a shiny Manaphy! I'd love to hear about it.

Congrats on the shiny Swablu! That's an ambitious quest you have, but if anyone can handle it, it's you. What's that, 71 1/8192 shinies? I think you waived your right ever to claim a lack of luck after shiny number 20, "lol."

There are a few things that helped me in my quest:
1. I have agoraphobia so I have no job.
2. I am an insomniac so I have a lot of time on my hands.
3. I am lucky.

I spent an average of 12 hours every day for three months before my luck kicked in. I hear it takes FOREVER to hatch one shiny, so luck is a very important thing to have.

Don't get discouraged. If you really want one then it will happen. Good luck!

P.S. check each hatch summary. The Manaphy doesn't appear shiny when it hatches so you have to check each one.

It's actually my 69th 1/8192 shiny; my shiny Lucario and Shroomish are Masuda shinies. And considering I've been shiny hunting consistently for over five years now, I don't think my number of shinies is particularly high; there are people who have hunted for less time than I have and have more shinies than I have!

Thanks for the tips! Your hard work paid off, and you get massive bragging rights for having the rarest shiny of all time. I don't have quite that much time, but there's always the chance that I could get it on one of the first couple of hatches, "lol."

It's kind of funny - I make a post about getting the best shiny hunters in the world to join the club, and out of nowhere the legendary shiny Manaphy owner appears, "lol." That's incredible dedication to hunt for ~1116 hours in three months, and you've earned the respect and awe of shiny hunters everywhere.

Oh, excuse me. You only have 69 shinies, my bad. :cer_laugh: Still, even severe shiny inflation doesn't account for that many, and the MMing and chaining outbreaks don't apply to you. I think it's more from you just being an awesome shiny hunter.

If you think that your shiny total is low... I'm not even sure how to respond to that, "lol." Sure, there might be some people with more, but I'd be willing to bet you have more than every active member in the club combined (and MetalMario accounts for over 4/7ths of that!!).

Enjoy it while you can, since I'm going to pass you pretty soon! *only 53 more shinies to tie*

EDIT: When is the shininess of the roaming Johto beasts determined? Is it when you release them or when you first encounter them?

Lol. I wouldn't say I am legendary. I only hunt Shiny legendaries though. I have not the patience for the masuda method that PinkPirate finds so relaxing. At least with Legendaries I can battle them before restarting.

Speaking of Shiny Hunting, I was thinking of going for Lugia in SS next.


BTW PinkPirate....I will get my Manaphy back. Also, I will never leave you, and not because you have my Luck (the name of said Manaphy.)

Hello all... I just wanted to say that... no shinies so far

Currently I'm still thinking over whether I should restart my SS or not, so I'll start my journey with a shiny if I find one
:D (Chikorita, Totodile, Cyndaquil.. doesn't matter)

I'm guessing I'm on about 800 eggs for one of the 4 pokes I chose. I've been having so much schoolwork that it interferes with my playing pokemon constantly. I hope I can get one soon enough
:D

And also...

PinkPirate, you better buy a fifth gen game for your husband pretty soon. Stealing the rarest shiny ever is about the meanest thing you could do.

2Cool4Mewtwo, I wouldn't restart SS, but it's ultimately up to you. If I ever got a complete Pokedex, I'd never restart that game! To get an extra set of legendaries and TMs (and so I could play the game!), I ended up just getting HG instead. It costs more, but it saves so much hassle. SRing is much, much faster than egg hatching, but I couldn't give up a game that I worked so hard on. I suggest you buy HG if you don't have it, or just restart that if you do.

Great art! It looks like we have a submission to the contest! Landorus doesn't always record stuff posted in the thread, so I'd PM it to him just in case.

I probably won't go for shiny Entei/Raikou, since it seems like it would take a long time to find them on the route, and I'd have to get one on each game, and I really want to keep playing through SS, "lol." Hopefully I'll find a random shiny - I love all the Johto Pokemon! Good luck to everyone on your hunts, and congrats for (I think) setting a modern-era activity record!

Maybe I should buy HG if I have more cash to splash around (currently have several hundred $$s atm and I don't know what do do with it) I was thinking of resetting SS, but I might change my mind.

As for the artwork, it's not mine :\ (if you wanted to know it's the dream world artwork). Though I changed the colors myself using photoshop

And I actually already have all the three shiny beasts, but those don't count because they were event-only (Crown Beasts)... I haven't done anything to them since I got them and I probably never do anything interesting with it anyways.. might trade them with my friends later but for now I'm not doing anything with it. It'll probably take ages to actually find them as shiny in the wild, though there always is 1/4096 chance for either one of those, 1 in 4096 kids must surely have them?

Hey, I thought I should share this in case you didn't know about it, it'll save you lots of time. If you did, pardon me, bahaha.

However, transferring in a Manaphy egg via Mystery Gift will only cause the egg's generated value to be checked against the current Trainer ID and Secret ID. Thus, on trading to another game, with a different Trainer ID and secret ID, the Manaphy has a chance at hatching Shiny
So basically, you'd need to receive the Manaphy in one game and then hatch it in another, or else it'll never be shiny.

Also, summer has officially began for me, so this means... lots of time for shiny hunting! :3

Thanks for the encouragement. Right now I'm up to 762 Litwicks. I hatched another one that had perfect IVs in Sp. Atk and Sp. Def, and this time it was with a Timid nature and the Flash Fire ability.

Good luck to everyone on their hunts.

So far, I'm at 6301 REs for my Secret hunt. I also decided to SR for a Sudowoodo, but I don't count the SRs for that. Good luck to everyone especially G-Money with his Manaphy hunt!

Time for an update. I don't update often, but that's due to my changing hunts often. I don't think it's neccisary to update on a hunt liable to end in days.

Rufflet: 240, 30 Boxed
Community Hunt of the Week: 0, may not do this one
Dreamyard: Ended at 900. Not motivated
Johto Starters: Not counting, dualing on HG and brother's SS
Hoenn Starters: Not counting, paused

I don't update, but I do read. Congrats on all new shinies!

Happy Hunting!

HG/SS spoilers:

Spoiler:

I caught a shiny Gyarados! I was in the Lake of Rage, and the one that you have to battle because of the radio signals was shiny. I could've sworn that its overworld sprite was red, but I was probably just imagining things. Out of all the Gyarados in the wild, it just so happens that the interactable one just randomly turns out to be shiny! No SRs or anything! What's the chance of that? (Don't answer that! ) :cer_laugh:

On a more serious note, I found something pretty cool. Shiny hunters have been officially recognized by Nintendo, and there's a shiny hunter in the game!! The Poke Maniac on Route 44 (the one between Mahogany and Blackthorne) enters the battle saying, "I'd do anything for a rare Pokemon!" I laughed when I saw this, since it reminded me of shiny hunting and how we all probably would agree with what this random trainer is saying. Of course, I thought that he was like 99% of other people and just talking about legendaries, Kangaskhan, Scyther, etc. After the battle, he says, "If a Pokemon has different colors than usual, it's more valuable. What? You mean that's not true?" :o It looks like Nintendo is mocking shiny hunters (as with Reshiram, Zekrom, Victini, and Manaphy), but it's still pretty cool that we're even mentioned in a game! I bet when Aaryn started a thread 7 years ago asking if people wanted to look for the mythical alternate-colored Pokemon, he never could have imagined that it would turn into something large enough to be included in a game!

So now we offically have a guy in the game who looks for shinies. I guess our sprite would be a Poke Maniac, "lol."

EDIT: I just checked online, and his name is Poke Maniac Zach. Go Zach! :D


I'm still playing through SS and SRing for Drifloon from time to time. I'll get back to heavy hunting for Palkia and Manaphy once I'm done.

I forgot to say this when the 5th gen English names came out: there used to be an SHC member named Pokemunna back in 2004. His username ended up becoming a Pokemon years later, "lol."

It looks like summer is starting for more and more people, so more shinies should be coming in soon. They tend to ship in bulk. I ordered them a while ago, so the next package should be on its way. Keep your eyes out for shinies; one could be coming to your door/DS/GBA! Good luck, everyone!

Nothing has shine yet, sadly. If I don't get it today, I'll have a one month drought. Wish me luck everyone!

Hunting:

Sudowoodo SS (not counting, SR)
Secret target B (7k REs)

EDIT: Planned some of my future targets.
1) Shiny Taillow MM
2) Shiny Phione MM
3) All SRable legendaries in SS + Snorlax
4) SHINY MANAPHY

3 posts in 4 days? Whoever drives the SHC Activity Van, you're fired! I don't know why you drove off of a cliff, but now G-Money has to push the van back onto the road. :cer_blankstare:

Maybe one of us will have a shiny Manaphy in the next 20 years, pokewalker! Good luck on your hunts and remember not to hunt Manaphy too much.

Metal Electric, that's terrible! I'm really sorry to hear that, but it's better than not finding a shiny at all. At least you know that you have a shiny frame on your game, so hopefully you'll get one soon. You're a true shiny hunter for persevering.

I read on another forum a new way of shiny hunting: 1/8192 chaining. It's basically chaining, but intentionally breaking the chain after each encounter to keep the odds at 1/8192 and to keep which Pokemon appears random. The major benefit of this is to find Pokemon in D/P/Pt that only appear with the radar, but not chaining them. I'm probably not going to do it myself, but it is an interesting idea that some of you might find useful.

I'm not sure whether or not you guys know this already, but in case you don't: HG/SS has an encounter counter like B/W, although it's not as easily accessible. If you go to the machine in the Indigo Plateau, it'll tell you how many Pokemon you've encountered. I think it counts Trainer battles too, but it's a potentially useful tool for shiny hunting. All you have to do is write down how many encounters you had before starting a hunt. Go hunt your shiny, and once you've captured it, go check the machine and subtract your original number. This seems a lot easier than counting or using a calculator, and I'll probably use it to count if I ever do an HG/SS RE hunt.
