alright, if ROMs don't count, take out Igglybuff, Goldeen, Geodude and zigzagoon (although the first 2 are from clean ROMs, and i got them by luck, like everyone else)

I was going to post a few days ago, but I wanted to clear something up with Landorus first. It looks like he's been afflicted with the Curse of the Owner, though, and if he doesn't post within the next 5 years, I'm going to seize control of the club and push through my secret agenda that he keeps on vetoing.

I've been hunting mostly Johto starters and doing some non-shiny hunting activities, so I'm only up to 1935 Palkia.

Sure, you can join, but I'm afraid I have to give you a strike. Off-topic posts are fine to an extent, especially if they're to help make the club more active or to continue discussions hinted at in previous posts. However, your second post there was just an advertisement. It would've been fine if you posted something like "I'm SRing for a shiny Palkia, and I'm at 1923 SRs. Speaking of legends, I made a club if anyone wants to join," but your post didn't really mention shiny hunting at all.

Also, what was the 4th shiny you listed? I can't tell what you were trying to say, but I sure hope it isn't Reshiram...

Quote originally posted by MetalMario:
G-Money, your math is wrong. For your math to be right, you must not give up a hunt ever, and you must also not count any shinies until you've completed any hunts you were doing concurrently with them.

Imagine the scenario: You attempt to Masuda breed for a given species. If you don't get it within 500 eggs, you switch to another species. This means the number of tries from each of your successes will never exceed 500.

Count the number of eggs you've hatched on all your 5th-gen games, add them together, divide by the number of shinies you've hatched. That's your experimental mean.
Thanks! I knew that the lack of unsuccessful hunts would skew the numbers a bit, but I wasn't sure by how much. Do you think there are that many unsuccessful hunts where the numbers would shift ~700 eggs?

Latios Master, you better get that Litwick soon! You're making my math look bad.

shiny Paras
Congrats, Fufu! You're getting shinies at a pretty fast pace - it's tough for me to keep up! Slow down so I can gain some ground, "lol."

Quote originally posted by Uade:
The only shiny Pokemon I ever got was a blue Unown H. I was trying to get all the different Unowns in my Heartgold, but then I encountered this, I already had an Unown H but I knew I had to get this. So I threw about 50 Reg pokeballs because I did not have false swipe at the time and did not want to risk attacking it so yea I threw pokeballs lol.

EDIT: Oh yea I just remembered, I have a red gyarados from I think Heartgold or something. Idk maybe my diamond.
Welcome to the club!

Quote originally posted by Latios Master:
shiny Audino
Congrats! You deserved a shiny, and one with a perfect IV at that!

Quote originally posted by Weber:
rayquaza- just becuase ive gotten to it now in emerald
I would suggest going after Rayquaza in HG/SS if you can; Emerald has a broken RNG, so you'll just keep getting the same set of non-shiny Pokemon over and over if you plan on SRing. You could try having each SR a different amount of time, since I think the RNG has something to do with how long the game has been on. Still, I wouldn't take my chances with Emerald, since there's a chance that you don't find a shiny in hundreds of thousands of encounters! :o

Quote originally posted by HaloSonic:
sadly, Ive been in a dry spell catching shinies, but Ive got 4 recently from events, the Pikachu-Colored Pichu, and the 3 legendary dogs to catch Zoroark.

Oh wait, this is a new club? ok, guess I'll have to re-register, and I'll haul across my list from the old one... wait, it's gone? oh crap, I can't even remember what I caught... let's see what I remember.

Gen II
Cleffa
Gyarados (duh)
Ledyba
Igglybuff
Goldeen

(missed out on catching a shiny Spinirak in Prism)

Gen III
Machop x2
Torkoal
Mahiukita
Golbat
Crobat
Geodude
Zigzagoon (disguised as a Bidoof in a ROMhack)

Gen IV
Ponyta
Nosepass
Gyarados (HeartGold)

Obatined through Events (Gen IV)
Pichu
Suicune
Raikou
Entei
Welcome back! We don't count GenII Pokemon for the Dex either, but you're more than welcome to hunt them if you want. Is your Gyarados the Lake of Rage one or did you find it while surfing? (same goes for Uade)

I like the consistency between your introductory posts, "lol." The old club is still around, but it's locked for new posting:

Sorry, but I'm going to have to give you a strike. You can't make posts here that exclusively talk about trading, even if it's about trading shinies. If you want to talk about looking for a shiny Beldum/Metang/Metagross in your games, we'd be more than happy to welcome you to our club and talk about them with you.

Thanks for the congrats, G-Money!

I'm now up to 1,375 Litwicks and 43 Magnemites. I've hatched some really good Magnemites with the Sturdy ability, but I want the Magnet Pull ability. I'm not sure how many more Litwicks I'll hatch. The shiny Audino was wild Pokémon encounter no. 3,987.

AAH who erases their shinies??! Also that Emerald save had an early shiny frame which is pretty rare. (Rather than being impossible to SR, it's super easy instead, possibly depending on the target.) It's a shame you restarted it. I believe early frame shinies from Emerald count as RNGing, so we don't accept them, but I'm not 100% on the new rules.

Currently playing through Black (Spiral Mountain) instead of hunting. I'm still hoping in vain for a beautiful Boldore to show up but keeping my expectations down. I plan to return to Generations 3 and 4 to clear up some of my old targets.

Awesome! You're going for Beldum, right? Good luck!

Could you please list the shinies that you caught yourself, or that a friend you trust in real life traded to you? We'll add them to our shiny Pokedex if you want.

I reached 1,400 Litwicks and 50 Magnemites. I spent a lot of time using the Pokéradar on Platinum last summer trying to get a shiny Magnemite, but I could never reach a chain of 40. It would always snap when I was in the 30s. I'm just gonna hatch Magnemites now until I get the IVs that I want. Snivy took 56 eggs, so I hope it doesn't take much longer. I want to get started on Archen and Cranidos soon. Archen is my favorite gen 5 Pokémon and Cranidos is my 2nd favorite Pokémon overall, behind Latios. Speaking of Latios, I want to eventually SR for one in Sapphire someday.

The Emerald thing is a tricky issue. I think it would be fair to accept any RE or hatched shinies, and at least the first SRed one. If you do manage to get a shiny frame, you'd have to time it perfectly to get another. I don't want to be discounting people's old Emerald shinies, and you'd have to know your secret ID to get them at the beginning. I don't have a problem with people making an SR, waiting 1 second, making another SR, waiting 2 seconds, etc. Now if they do get the shiny and write down how many seconds they waited after the SR and use that to get all the Emerald encounterables, we'll change the rule then. Right now, all Emerald shinies count, but we can talk about it if you want to discount SRed shinies after 2 or 3; that's open for discussion. The evil tyrannical dictator is afflicted by the curse, so we might have a little more freedom for a while.

Thing is, getting a save file with an early frame is about as hard as getting a shiny in the first place. With an early frame, they're legit shinies, but effectively "clones" of one another. The first SRed shiny should be okay to count, but not subsequent ones from the same save file. Hatched and RE shinies of course will count as usual, provided they aren't also from early frames. This should be pretty hard to do accidentally, so you should be safe unless you're intentionally abusing it.

Weber: This means your Rayquaza is fine. I'm wondering, though--why do you want another one if you still have the original?

also 30 more numels and no luck yet, up to 1240 and no luck, only 7000 more before i definatly should have one (acutally i guess its less then that becuase of the whole MM)

I thought eggs on Emerald use a completely different RNG on Emerald, thus they can be hunted any which way the hunter desires. But I suppose I was wrong.

Anyway, as usual, the main reason for my post is a new shiny! And this time, it's somewhat unique:

Egg IVs are totally different. It's never been disproven to me that Emerald creates PVs in the usual way, or uses the Synchronize method for Everstone, so I treat this as being true.

Congrats on the Farfetch'd, Fufu! That is a rare shiny; you don't see too many people with one! You're outpacing me, though... >.>

*still happy with getting 5 shinies in a year*

This sounds good! This is the new rule, unless Landorus decides to change it. All shinies up until now are fine (no ex post facto!), but from here on, we'll only count 1 SRed shiny per Emerald file.

Congrats on the shiny Farfetch'd, FuFu! You've been really lucky lately.

I haven't hatched eggs for the last couple of days. I decided to cross Bagon off my list of future hunts. So besides Litwick and Magnemite I'll be hatching for Archen, Cranidos, Sandile and Axew. I have to catch Jolly nature versions of Sandile and Axew first before I get to them.

I'm now up to 108 Magnemites. I've hatched about 1,700 Pokémon using the Masuda Method so far.

Welcome to the club!! Good luck on that Cubchoo!

Congrats on the shinies, Metal Electric and Evil Sonic!

Congrats on the Pidgeotto and Breloom, hiff8! Landorus will add them to the ShinyDex if he ever returns.

The Gr8 is back from the VGCs, where he was representing the SHC, battling with a shiny Pokemon on his team! Here's his story of his heroic battle, fighting on behalf of the SHC:
