Welcome to the club.

Congrats on all those shinys!

I just realized, all my online friends are playing some kind of Pokemon (3 are playing X/Y, one Gates to Infinity) while I picked up a copy of Rune Factory 4 to fill the time when even the thought of one more pokemon encounter and I'll throw the game. Turns out... Rune Factory is addicting and my OCD loves being able to micro-manage the world around me. Now I'm trying to find time to play both, because when I play one, I end up doing so for hours and never touch the other, between POKEMON X and RF4.

By the way, that shiny finding device is awesome, as if shain fishing wasn't easy already, now you don't even have to worry about breaking the chain by bad button pushing timing! (note sarcasm is second half of that) I do think it's awesome though.

@Beechyboy: Happy to help

So just got my 2nd shiny of this generation, one I have liked an wanted for a while. Was using the Pokeradar, and after a chain of 20 this beauty turned up unexpectedly:

Spoiler:






Her IV's aren't very good, but she has a 31 in speed which is the one that I would prefer to be the best so it's ok


Spoiler:


20-27 HP
09-16 Attack
20-27 Defence
02-08 Sp. Attack
05-12 Sp. Defence
31-31 Speed

Hitting the 40 to maximise the odds is still not easy, but getting better

Once I have sussed it out a bit better I will be making a video tutorial for a friend of mine, will post a link here as well. Think all I need is more patience (getting there though!)

Cool will definitely give it a watch I am sure I am doing things right but I just get frustrated when the chain breaks. I think I got to almost 30 chaining skiddos the other day, then gulpin showed up. It just had to be Gulpin.

Thinking of going for a Poliwag (for Politoed) soon. Should I do it y/n?

Starting my Fletchling hunt! I just need to beat the game finally, and breed down some near-flawless Adamant Gale Wings. This'll be faster hatching. Also for the November hunt!

Heck yea go for that Poli'. Poliwrath was actually one of my favourite water types to use back in the early days. Still is really. After reading the pokemon adventures manga and seeing red used Poli I grew to like them Never used politoad though, always went wraith.

Wait what, they re-introduced the Pokéradar? How does it work now as regards finding a shiny? I chained so many shinies in DPPt that it got ridiculous haha, I'm very excited to see it return if it works in the same way. Though right now I've not even beat the league so still stuck to chain fishing - hoping for a couple shiny Relicanth today so I can get a good nature!

@Hooh Poliwag is one of my all-time favourites and Poliwrath is just a badass; definitely make sure to go get one!

Hey, everyone! Good going with the captures and the ongoing hunts.

I've finished hatching for my flawless Hawlucha, so now I'm mass-breeding it with a 2 max IV Japanese Ditto in hopes of getting a really good Shiny one.

I've got a lot of ones with 4 max IVs and will likely get more with 5 max IVs, so if anyone wants one so they, too, can OCD towards both Shinyness and IVs like I do, feel free to put in a reservation!

If you do, my FC's in my signature and under my post count.

I don't mind anything specific in return, but surprises can be fun!

@Hooh: Don't let that Fletchling <INTENSIFY> too much or he might stroke!

ive come back with some news!

while continuing on in the game (ive gotten to route 14 or 15 now) i decided to save my game and just start encountering for a little while before going to bed last night. before i show the shiny, ive found out that Illuminate and/or rain cancels out horde encounters, so i removed the Volbeat i caught to test it out, and lo and behold:

Spoiler:


also, i dont remember if i showed the Mime Jr., so here it is again:

Hey all, just checking in. No new shinies for me yet, but I've been feeling very unmotivated lately. Everyone else seems to be getting shinies with relative ease but I haven't had any sort of luck on my hunts. All these new methods and lower odds are starting to make me feel like the shinies I have aren't really worth anything anymore. Maybe I'm just too old fashioned? Am I wrong for feeling this way? Throughout my hunting career I've always used one gaming system and did all hunts on my own such as the SR and RE methods because I don't have anyone else to play pokemon with (wether online or in real life) and stuck with the 1/8192 odds. Not complaining though, since I've been fortunate enough to find some cool shinies on my own that I'm very proud of. But to me it just seems like shinies aren't worth as much now because they have become so easy to get, with the shiny charms, poke radar and chain fishing and stuff. I only have one dsi and no 3ds so I haven't played Gen VI yet, but I'm not sure if I should even buy it because of how I'm feeling about hunting right now. I hope my feelings change soon because I don't wanna stop playing altogether. Can anyone help me out? :/

But moving on, congrats to all the shinies caught regardless of the methods used! Special congrats to Beechyboy on shiny Togepi! Giuseppe is a perfect name for it. Does everyone else nickname their shinies too? How do yall come up with them?

GOOD LUCK ON YOUR HUNTS EVERYONE!**

congrats on all new shinies.

question: has anyone tried the new breeding mechanic with the destiny knot with ev ítems? i don't know if one cancels the effect of the other.

Welcome back, Flydro!

Don't let yourself get demotivated. Seeing many Shinies spring up can indeed seem demotivating, but always remember that you know the time and effort put into your Shinies and that's what really matters, in the end. Much like with breeding for IVs, I stay off those methods out of a personal preference, as I'm guessing you do. Even if people have new ways of getting them now, you can always be reassured by the date, generation and location of your own Pokémon. The species in your collection may be easier to acquire now and they may be worth less for others, but you shouldn't let your own perception of them change.

A lot of methods have been implemented that drastically reduce the odds, that's true. If you don't feel right using them, then you don't have to. In fact, I tried chain fishing for a bit and gave away one of the Shinies I got, since I didn't feel right keeping it; planning to do the same with the Friend Safari. Of the Shinies I have from easier measures (everything that isn't RE, SR, normal and Masuda breeding), only one is a Shiny I didn't use to have before my old games were stolen - my Staraptor. That was the first Shiny I got and Radar'd for in Gen IV, so I was quite excited!

In the end, if you don't feel like you owe anything to anyone in regards to the authenticity or rarity of your collection, you'll be better off.

WELL, after fishing for a while, I ran into a shiny poliwhirl. I decided to evolve it into this adorable critter <3 :

Unfortunately, it has a docile nature. But nonetheless, I think this one will be on my team forever. :3

Hey guys got a new shiny!

Spoiler:


It took a 100ish SRs doing 5 fossils per SR. 1 Kabuto, 1 Cranidos, 2 Tirtougas and an Archen. This file is one of my luckiest files I've had since my Diamond file. Also just need one more flying type to complete this months challenge too!

That was just a hunt I was doing on the side while hunting Espurr, at about 5200~ REs for that I really hope I can get it. Also still REing on Black, not really going for anything specific just going around to different areas trying to figure out what I should hunt next.

So, I bring more news! I was hunting along happily with my pokeradar, and after just 15 short chains this one turned up. It caught me off guard and I was a little unsure as to which patch it was (there were 2 right above each other), but thankfully I got the right one:

Spoiler:


A cool shiny and it is now evolved. One that I have never got before, so I am happy

After that, my chain hadn't broken so I reset the radar. After I reset it a second time, I was shocked to see even more sparkles:

Spoiler:


So these would have been 15 and 16 respectively. Very small odds of this happening but hey, not complaining

Their IV's are average, but that's OK by me.

it appears that shiny pokemon seem to be avoiding me since B/W because after hearing all the incredible luck everyone is having, i still don't have another shiny under my belt, personally, i'd like to get a shiny Doublade/Aegislash or a Talonflame although judging my track record, it'll be another Bug Type. so here's hoping for Scyther/Scizor because i definitely want to use a shiny Mega Scizor.

once again congrats to all found shinys between posts.

Congratulations on new shinys!

No new shinys encountered (then again I've been staying away from fishing and the friend safari, so I wasn't expecting to see any too much) and I'm tired out from egg hatching, I can only take it for so long.

So until I feel like hatching again... or make another attempt at chain-fishing up a Remoraid...

Anyone have an opinion on what I should hunt? I wouldn't mind hunting for any of these: Pumpkaboo, Klefki, Scorupi, Surskit, Hoppip, Inkay, Houndour, Stunky, Carbink...

I think that's a good list.

@LDD: Go for Carbink so you can have a "Yo dawg!" moment every time you send it out, since it sounds like a Shiny when sent out normally and it'll sparkle again from the Shinyness. Ha!

I have a great story to tell today! In fact - my second shiny ever in XY!

Sadly as I have no access to a Gale Wings Fletchling (no Fire Safari), there was indeed a Dragon Safari I wanted to try my luck with, to see if the rumors were true that shinies were easier there. My person didn't have the game, and they only had two dragons in there - Gabite and Shelgon. I was really hoping for Shelgon, but I know shiny Megachomp is great too.

I was crazy tried from last night and wanted a casual hunt, so with my friend and for a good 3 hours I just did an estimated 700-something encounters. And then the Shelgon shone! He's fabulous and green, and my Jolly sync worked somehow, miraculously. My Fletchinder accidentally burned him while battling and he was down to at least 5 health when I just decided to swallow my pride and Master Ball it.

Totally worth it. His name's Kale.
