Congrats to Razer for his buizel, thats one of my favorites.

Congrats to Keruso for his magnamite; going to evolve it into magnezone?

Sorry about that, I know TSE is a she, I was going to put "her" instead of "his" but I got distracted.

Sorry TSE, I'll pay more attention next time.

That's not true, I got an Eevee. To be specific, I've been MMing Litwick for a year.

Welcome to the club Sebbaiz, rykerr1, and AlexOzzyCake!

Congrats on the shiny Cryogonal, miloticfan54!

Congrats on the shiny Girafarig and Magnemite, Keruso!

I'm sorry to hear about the shiny Poochyena, ShinySearcher01. Good luck on reclaiming it!

Congrats on the shiny Cobalion, Chr. Draco!

Congrats on the shiny Giratina, TheShinyEevee!

Congrats on the shiny Buizel, Razer302!

This week's random hunt is... Rattata!

I played Crystal for the first time in years and found out what shinies I have on there. They are: Mareep, Marill, Pichu, Sneasel, Cleffa, Aipom, Quilfish, Yanma, Larvitar, Ditto, Gyarados (Lake of Rage), Ekans (from a trade), and Weepinbell (from a trade). I completely forgot I had some of these, like Yanma for example. This is a list of hunts I might work on in the current generation of games, since I can't trade them up. I would also like to have a reclaim hunt for the shiny Geodude that exploded on me on Silver a decade ago. I feel old. Every time you wanted to go to a different box in the PC you had to save the game.

Hello everyone~ I'd like to join, if that's okay? Shinies that I have... -boots up white- I've got a random shiny Gurdurr, a shiny chained Arcanine transferred from Diamond, a hatched shiny Swablu, It wasn't even Masuda Method'd I was like O_O and a MM'd shiny Milotic. Thinking I might go for MM Trapinch next.

Congratulations Razer on the buizel, Im sure youll have about 5 more by the time you have finished chaining.
Congratulations on getting Cobalion, Dr. though you didnt seem to excited
Keruso.. Well done.. The shiny gods love you.. xD

I don't want to sound mean or anything, but I think the page would load faster if we put large pictures/quotes in spoiler tags. I don't want to tell you guys how to post or anything, but my page started lagging with all the pics and quotes, "lol."

In my last post, I sort of discouraged REing in R/S post-battery death. I was browsing through the Manual and it appears that REing is safe. You might still run into a duplicate from time to time, but the likelihood of that is rather slim since each encounter takes a different amount of time. After several minutes have passed since you've turned the game on, the chances of repeating frames are incredibly low.

I find it funny how Keruso finds shinies more frequently than you post, "lol." :cer_laugh:

Wow, that's a lot of 2nd Gen shinies! I didn't start shiny hunting until 2006, so the only G/S/C ones I have are the Red Gyarados. But I remember how frustrating and slow everything was compared to today, with the PC boxes and all. R/S were such a giant leap forward, haha.

It would be interesting to trade over all 1st Gen Pokemon to see which ones, if any, are shiny. We could have shinies and not even know it!

Haha, that's the Chr. Draco style! He hides his shinies throughout his posts so it's like a game, "lol." I remember back during last spring I had to reread his posts a couple of times because he would be like, "Hi, ...(three paragraphs later)...not much to say, oh by the way I got a new shiny, ..."

Most people are somewhere in between, but I think the Chr. and I represent the two extremes of the announcing-new-shinies-spectrum. Contrast his posts with my slightly less subtle style...

My shiny news: not much to say, only got two shiny geodudes in chain at 33 and 41 respectively.

I think my April fools pokemon is going to be nosepass, by breeding ofcourse.

Training my probopaass first for now before I put it in the daycare.

Thats all for now. Good luck and happy hunting.

my shiny news: well, not much to say, got a shiny weezing only by luck (pokeradar of course), the other three I found all suffered a drastic destiny, if your guess was Explosion then you're right. But its ok, I just wanted to catch one, and maybe see the explosion animation of a shiny one. lol, I enjoyed it a little.
I was just training using the pokeradar, and when I noticed, I had already 40, so I gave it a try; and for the first one to appear was an eternity.

Hatching section: started hatching nosepass eggs; also I'll let you all know it's name when it hatches.

Well, that's all for now. good luck and happy hunting.

PD: updated my shiny album with some older and newer pics I took with my camera.

Nothing new for now except a couple of chained keckleon a week ago aprox.

Had been studying most of the time.

Currently stopped the nosepass hatches and changed it for some hunts I had pending for some time.

See you soon and happy hunting.

I've been somewhat busy lately so I haven't bothered much with the chaining contest, but maybe later today I'll try my luck and see if I can make a last minute improvement. It's mostly that I've been focusing on Treecko, though my art course is finishing very soon and I've also been making a costume for a Con next month.

Treecko Masuda Method- 1300 eggs so far.

Edit: OH GOD GUYS I THINK I JUST MESSED UP. As in, I THINK but I don't KNOW and somehow that is SO MUCH WORSE. Basically I was about to start chaining Skitty, but I encountered a Flaafy instead, so I soft resetted away. But then I thought, "hang on, I ssswear that had a green gem on its tail. Didn't my shiny one look like that?" So I checked and yeah, those are the shiny colours. If I really did see what I thought I saw... Then I just lost my first randomly encountered shiny ever. I'm not as bothered as I would be if I'd never had that one before, but still... urghhhhhhhhh

Meanwhile, 150 Trapinch eggs and counting. This is looking to be a lot longer than my shiny Feebas hunt >_>

You got interesting shinies there, welcome.

To Razer: I think you're the winner of the chaining contest, there were only 2 participants I guess, we have to wait for G-money to make the final decision.

Cya guys and happy hunting.

Hi everyone, I'm back =)

Congrats on all of the shinies that people have gotten... not going to list them all but you know who you are!

I have a question for those who RE in 3rd or 4th gen: how do you count the encounters that you do? I know the trainer card counts them in 5th gen but I don't get how people keep track without it.

That depends, some like to count the target, others count every pokemon they see; the method is usually by using a counter, pencil/pen and paper, or a calculator.

Hehe, thanks. I'm definitely proudest of my lovely Milotic, as she was my first successful MM ever and her IVs are actually good. I don't even like Gurdurr why on earth did a shiny of it randomly appear ;_;

I know for a fact I never RE'd on purpose in 3rd gen. I didn't care about it enough, lol And I mainly used pokeradar in 4th gen and have exactly one shiny to show for it god that thing was annoying. It's just asdfjkl. I prefer Masuda Method D;

COME ON TRAPINCH SHINE FOR ME YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO

Hey guys, nice to see all the new members and new shinies around.

As for me? Not bothering with my reclaim quest right now apart from REing on fire red for hopefully another shiny ponyta, My main focus right now shiny wise is picking up a hunt I started a while ago and never really finished it, MMing on platinum for a shiny charmander, currently up to 420 eggs and I intend to hatch more just as soon as I clear out my boxes.

Good luck to everyone hunting.

Well... I'm home from my vacation... And I brought home some souvenirs!

This is apparently my first time chaining... But I caught on quick... Here is my not-so-impressive chain...
Spoiler:


However... I did manage to get some stuff from it...
Spoiler:

Spoiler:


Well, two shiny Magneton! Well, the first one's got a Hardy Nature, which is why I'll be using this guy in B/W2... While my brother wanted me to give him the extra one(the Impish one, since I caught them... I get to choose the ones I want first)... Ah well, I guess I'll try chaining again when I go abroad on another vacation...

After completing my Pokedex, I am back to hunting Bulbasaur. I am currently at 222 eggs. When a shiny one shows, I'm going to keep hunting Bulbasaur for one to send to my Black version. After that, I'm going for a couple of Charmander.

Congrats Miloticfan, everyone that can reach a chain of 40 is a good chainer for me, maybe in the next chaining contest you and razer will have a great race chaining.

Hope you get your bulbasaur soon Dratizard, you too with your charmander Vladimir, and you too sakura with your trapinch.

Just passing by to see how is everything going in the club, cya and happy hunting.

Edit: I've been asking myself for some time, does power items make masuda method go slower to find a shiny or decrease probabilities to find shinies?

I've used power items and everstones together on both of my Eevee hunts and power items don't decrease the odds as far as I know. The first one hatched in 2500 ish eggs and the second one hatched in 1300 ish eggs, so neither hunt was too long. I've seen other people use power items and get shinies in under 1000 eggs.

And thanks for the advice about counting... I think the next time I start a new SR/RE hunt I will try counting with a calculator to see if it doesn't get too boring.

Also, congrats on your Magnetons miloticfan =) Are you going to evolve one? Magnezone is a great shiny.

I honestly don't know... It's a hard decision since Magnezone is slower than Magneton... But that blue eye is just captivating...

... I'm at a loss on deciding what I should chain next in Platinum... I'm going abroad soon and I can't decide what I should chain while I'm gone...
