haha, you should also post that you'd like to join xD Is it so difficult? lol, you can't do anything can't you :p

ok that was off-topic, it was just a dude on MSN who I tried to let join but he doesn't like it. I'm now hunting Taillow and Manaphy, I've done 700 eggs for taillow and about 10 for Manaphy. ( i have 5 manaphy eggs)

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:
Thank you G-Money, it was an honor reppin the club, my state, and everything.
So before I start, I should say what the VGC's are. Well they are the Video Game Championships that are held regionally throughout the US,Europe, and Japan by Nintendo. With the US having a National Tournament (Top 16 Regionals). and the Worlds which is self explanatory. Battles are 2v2 and this was Unova pokemon only. Here is my story

Note: The usernames I mention are people from smogon just so it doesn't cause some confusion. So they are just all smogoners.
-------------------------------------------------------

As the title says, I competed in the regional tournament in Newark, New Jersey. I knew about the tourney about 2 months ago, so I got to work on researching for my team. So after some trial and error and some big time help from iambaney, who was my "coach" through this process helped a lot. So this is the team I went with, feeling pretty confident, with some last minute changes.

First off before I start this whole thing, I would like to say thank you to the following people for helping me in this process.

iambaney: my coach, mentor and who really helped me out when I needed it. He helped me finalize me team, and really had some great suggestions for me. Even though I didn't get an invite to nationals, I still made Top 64 out on r4 and I couldn't have done it without your help. Those changes we made came up big for me by the way :D so I must say thank you.

Andrea: Thank you for the Tornadus, it fit my team better than the Thundurus I had and it helped me out. So thank you!

JRank: For your scraggy, even though I changed natures last minute, I had yours ready to go, and I appreciate your help very much.

EVS 252 SPA 100 SPE 158 HP
Moves: Water Absorb,Protect,Ice Beam, Shadow Ball


Well the story starts off the night before the tournament, I pick up my friend Rhyder, who also went to the tourney and got out on the fourth round. We hung out, battled, and I finished some last minute adjustments to my team, staying up till about 3:45 in the morning. We left my house here in Connecticut at 6:30 and we were on our way. Mind you we had to go through broadway >__< fail. We arrived at the exposition center at around 10:45 where we talked to the people behind us before letting us in. So we get into the exposition center, and stand in the line for the Masters. We are pretty much the only two people around us not playing their DS's or last minute training. They hand out the cards we are 254 and 255 so I got Sceptile and he was Torchic which is weird because those were our starters in our first Hoenn games.



After the senior finals and waiting for about 2 hours, the line starts to move for registration. Apon registering I introduced myself to Andrea, because she had just registered and I wanted to say thank you lol. So anyway Rhyder and I get registered and we go to our respective tables.

I am the player in the dark blue shirt, and the red and white hat, I think I say this twice but it's to clarify

Round 1 vs Mandell A.

He was chill to talk to since we had to wait till the registration was over lol and it was a pretty good time for my first battle. I wasn't sure to to expect with his Chand or His Landorus for that matter, so I took it how I felt he would run it, and it seemed to be right.

His team: Chandelure-Terrakion-Landorus-??
Mine:Terrakion-Scrafty-Hydreigon-Amoonguss



I am having a problem remembering this match, because it was the first of the day, and I was quite nervous and excited at the same time. So I really honestly can't remember this match at all, just that having Ice Punch on Scrafty 2hko'd his Landorus and that Hydreigon OHKO'd his Chandelure which for sure I thought would be sashed. I think I won 2-0. So after watching him get his bracelet cut, we shook hands and he wished me good luck in the tournament. I go to Area 2, not as nervous and with some confidence.

Round 2 vs Juan G.

This guy was pretty cool too, I wasn't sure what to expect from his team from the preview so I just did what I felt comfortable with. He also told me he has always lost in the second round, so I was like oh :/ I had no idea what to say there. I also talked to TTS for a little bit who sat next to me, and we also got next to each other in round 4.

His Team:Amoonguss-Terrakion-Hydreigon-Meinshao
Mine: Tornadus-Amoognuss-Terrakion-Hydreigon





You can see the battle here.

It was like a spore match for the beginning of the game, and Hydreigon survived a drain punch

I won 1-0 since Hydre died from LO

Round 3 vs HMS

Anyone that was there knows this one well if you heard it from me this guy was just wow. So at first we set up and I guess he didnt confirm his team so he had different guys sent out, and he was like lets just start. I was like okay? So I start Fake out his Musharna, and OHKO his Krookodile and He kinda calls over Marriland, and asks him to restart. So he lets us so then he says that I can choose one of his pokes to send out first and he has to send it out, so I pick Krookodile.

His: Whims-Krookodile-Elektross-Terrakion
Mine:Terrakion-Scrafty-Hydreigon-Tornadus



After all the stuff, I forgot his first lead besides Krook and my last which really doesn't matter. So anyway, he protects with krook, i go for the CC like being stupid, and I fake out his Whims,I am leaning more towards Whimsi anyway. So Next round, I go for the CC on Krook, and OHKO it and this is where I forget what happens until the ending. My reasoning of forgetting it all is because my opponent had 3 freak outs all match, and many people heard it and looked at him, people can vouch. Anyway so he has his Elektross at medium yellow health and a Terrakion with 1 HP from sash. I have Terrakion with 1 HP and Hydreigon in low yellow or something like that the first poke doesn't matter anyway. So he goes for the reason of not dying I protect with Hydreigon, and he uses discharge, and he FREAKS out saying I AM SOOO STUPID OMG, etc. he kills his own Terrakion and mine, but my Hydreigon is protected, and I Dragon Pulse for the win. I honestly lol'd at the discharge. So I say good game and he turned his DS off and it froze the game, I got the win on the card but not on my digi ID but that's okay. So I made it to the Top 64 players, being in the fourth round alone was great!

Round 4 vs Mark S

His:Tornadus-Thundurus-Landorus-Terrakion
Mine:Terrakion-Scrafty-Hydreigon-Tornadus.



I am going to make this shorter, but I took out Landorus and Tornadus, and had my Hydreigon left, and both his pokes were low health. It was a good game, but I wish I had chosen a bit better for this team. I know it was a close match anyway that lasted almost 11 minutes or so? But this would be where my wrist band gets cut and yeah :/ so I make Top 64, which is better than I ever thought. But even then so it was a great battle

Here is my card!

Spoiler:


We both made Top 64 players out of about 600+ in the Masters Division in our first VGC Tournament.

I meet up with Rhyder, go get my bag that I left at the Second Area with a Second DS in the bag, luckily I asked Marriland to look for it also and it was at the info booth >___< I was too happy and pumped, which also resulted my fuzzy memory of the matches.

Then we walk around, take pictures with the pokes and inflatables. I talked to Cybertron,iss,hitmonrocker mainly for a little while and explain what happened in the 3rd round and my loss also. I also got to meet Ditto,Jabba,Tyler, Bluecookies (Who is the reigning world champion), it's hard to keep track of all of the smogoners I met today, which was pretty cool! :D then watched the finals, that was a great battle IPS and Wolf.

Now some pictures with the pokemon! I am the one with the red and white hat.

Spoiler:









Props
:
  • Meeting a lot of smogoners, it was cool to talk and hang out a bit with you guys!
  • Made it further than I thought
  • Top 64. not too shabby.
  • Pictures with Pokemon and of my battles!
  • Getting Marrilands autograph
Slops:
  • Having to drive through broadway. (NEVER again)
  • Rhyder losing to an Imprision Chandelure like I said he would.
  • Screaming opponent in Round 3.
  • My bag getting lost in r2 out of excitement and it had another DS in it, all my chargers. I told Marriland and they found it and was at the info booth, lucky me.

Thank you for reading everyone! :D it was a pleasure to meet all of you that went to Newark. I will be going back next year for sure! I honestly had so much fun, no matter how well or bad I would have done, I was going to have fun anyway, so after my loss I just had fun with everyone there and my buddy Rhyder. I hope everyone had a great time at Newark as well. So that is my war story

The VGC's are very fun, and I am so glad I went honestly. Using shiny Amoonguss I thought of the club here which was great also! I love that thing lol, it just looks so cool.

But anyway, I have to get back to SRing for Snivy

Oh too bad, you just got another of my most wanted shiny of all time! And it has good IVs and a decent nature. Better luck next time.

Who is talking in the background? Sounds like they just got a shiny Cyndaquil.

Welcome to the Shiny Hunter's Club, Nato4eyes!

Congrats on the shiny Chikorita, Metal Electric!

I got back to my Litwick hunt, which is now up to 1,436. My Magnemite hunt is now up to 143, although it's more of a hunt for IVs rather than a shiny. I'll probably switch from Litwick to Archen for my main shiny hunt when I reach 1,500 Litwicks.

Would be awesome. And I also started a new hunt: shiny Johto starter! It's also part of a upcoming BQ on SS. So wish me luck, I'm also recording everything live.

So I was training a Magcargo in that cave in Johto (I don't know the name), and I was biking around the lower chamber. I wasn't really paying attention, but I saw some movement on the screen after running into a wild Pokemon. I looked down and didn't see any blue stars, so I went back to what I was doing before. When I looked down again at my DS, I saw that the wild Magcargo was purple! Haha, I was thrilled to have found a shiny, especially after already seeing one this month! It was pretty ironic that I ran into it when I was training my own non-shiny Magcargo, "lol."

There was one point in the battle where it used a move (it was Rock Slide or some mud move) and part of the attack animation covered part of the shiny in brown. I got scared for a second that that would unshine the shiny somehow, "lol."

After couple of Ultra Balls, the shiny Magcargo was mine!!

Spoiler:
...and then I woke up. :/

Welcome to the club! That's awesome you got a shiny on your birthday - congrats!

Actually, all you have to do to join is post; there's no mandatory asking. He didn't do anything wrong there, but, um, you kind of did. I'm going to give you a warning (not a strike) for being condescending; the last two sentences there were unnecessary and pretty mean, even if you were joking. Just be a little more careful from now on.

Quote originally posted by pokewalker:
a dude on MSN who I tried to let join but he doesn't like it. I'm now hunting Taillow and Manaphy, I've done 700 eggs for taillow and about 10 for Manaphy. ( i have 5 manaphy eggs)
Yeah, my recruiting attempts haven't been that successful either. People just don't know what they're missing out on, and I feel bad that they can't experience the awesomeness that is The SHC. :cer_laugh:

You're lucky to have 5 Manaphy eggs - you'll probably get it 5 times faster than me, "lol." You might want to trade over a Flame Body/Magma Armor Pokemon with each batch, too; it makes the hunt so much faster, especially since there's no bike!

Quote originally posted by TheGr8:
*post*
Wow, top 64? That's incredible!! Nice job, TheGr8! I especially liked the part in your video at the beginning when you sent out Amoongus.

I bet everyone was rooting for you to beat that third guy, "lol."

I couldn't help but notice, though, that you were in a location awfully close to The Evil Empire. I hope you know that the SHC reserves the right to ban, execute, or annihilate any person(s) with any known association to the New York Yankees organization via employment, monetary contributions, moral support, or any other connection in any way, shape, or form. That cesspool of evil is equivalent to letting other people get shinies and then purchasing at exorbitant rates the ones they deem to have high IVs. They don't catch any shinies on their own, of course, and they ruin the ones they get from others by giving them atrocious EVs. That's a physical incarnation of what the SHC is not.

We might laugh at you if you're a Mets fan, but you won't get banned from the club.

Shiny Chikorita
Congrats on an awesome shiny! Don't be put down for getting a repeat shiny - now you get to have both a Chikorita and Meganium! I usually don't evolve my shinies because I like the unevolved forms better, but now you get the best of both worlds.

Thanks G-Money, lol half the smogoners I know, heard that guy, my friend also hear him while playing in his own third round match.On that last freak out my friend's opponent was like "what is that guys issue?" my friend looks over to my table and was like "My friend is kicking his ass." lol. But yeah it was a lot of fun, and I was always happy to see my shiny amoonguss. I was very close to top32 which was good anyway for my first VGC.

But it's back to the shiny hunts! :D

SRing Snivy, I can't tell you guys how many times I fall asleep doing the SRs.

Congrats on the shiny Snivy, carefulwetpaint! Yes, you can join.

Good luck on the shiny Graveler hunt, JalordaSerpent7! The first shiny that I ever came across was a Geodude in Silver and it exploded on me to. I suggest using a Pokémon that has the Damp ability. Golduck, Poliwrath, and Quagsire are three examples.

I got the IVs that I wanted on Magnemite, so the hunt ends at 183. The Magnemite that I was looking for came on no. 182. Now I'm back to just hatching Litwicks. So far I've hatched 1,454 Litwick eggs, and about 1,800 eggs overall.

Congratz! That's the hunt I am working on! I am taking a little break from it, SRing gets tiring after a while. I don't keep track of my number of SRs or when I hatch eggs. Because it gets me a tad frustrated. Welcome to the SHC !

@Latios thanks . I have a question though, how do you tell what the IV of your pokemon are.. And good luck on the Litwick, that sounds like total death hatching that many eggs.

@TheGr8 Im not going to lie, i was watching tv shows while doing and not really paying attention so wasnt that bad, though SRing does get awfully boring haha. Good luck on your hunt though

There is a judge in the Battle Subway that tells you how good your IVs are but doesn't tell you the exact numbers. First he tells you how good the Pokémon's IVs are overall by saying "it's outstanding", "it's relatively superior", "it's above average", or it's "decent". For the best IV he says "it can't be better", "it's fantastic", "it's very good", or "it's rather decent". If he says "it can't be better", that means that it has a perfect 31 IV. There are other ways to get exact numbers, like IV calculators that you can find on other websites.

first though I'd bring it to the battle club in Nimbasa City. All the way left to the pokemon center. Save in front of the guy, then talk to him, and just say single battles and select your pokemon you want to check, get into the battle it will be lvl 50 stats which are more accurate for IV calcs.

and thank you it's a tough hunt though

lolol you sound exactly like me. I have done that about 5 times. I took a break for a while tonight to play my Emerald run through. Hoping to see a shiny that'd be nice to be honest and I thought I had a shiny Trapinch lol.
