Do you like shiny Pokémon? Do you like finding them during your play through of the games? Then this is the challenge for you.

If you dont know what this challenge is, or just need a refresher, this challenge is pretty simple. You have to find a shiny pokemon before each major boss/gym/E4 battle. It doesn't matter if you if you'd use the shiny or not, but one must be found before each major battle, but how you find it doesn't matter. You can use the pokeradar when it's obtained, trade over or capture a pokemon that knows sweet sweet for hordes in later generations, dexnav in ORAS, chain fishing, or any other tactic to obtain within the game you're playing.

How to sign up:
Just use this simple sign up sheet.
Username:
Game:

Now the games are any game that has shiny Pokémon in them, so gen 2 and onwards are the eligible games. I'm going to put two versions of the games, standard and super. Standard being just collecting 8 shines for the 8 badges (1 for each badge), then the option of getting another 5 for the E4 and champion. In Super, you have to collect 8 shinies (or more for said games below), 1 per badge, and collect one for every other major battle (such as one shiny for the first Maxie/Archie Battle) including the E4 and champion. Also, you have to catch a shiny before a major battle; so you'd have to catch one before each badge, and not all 8 at once then go through the game.
The games end when you:

STANDARD
GSC: Beat Lance a first time.
RSE: Beat Steven the first time
FRLG: Beat rival (champion) at E4
DPPt.: Beat Cynthia the first time
HGSS: Beat lance the first time
BW: Beat N at the E4
B2W2: Beat iris the first time
XY: Beat diantha a first time
ORAS: Beat Steven a first time.

SUPER:
GSC: Collect all 8 Kanto badges. Beat lance again after collecting 8 Kanto badges (optional)
RS: Beat Steven a second time.
E: Beat Steven a second time and/or beat frontier brains.
FRLG: Beat the sevi islands side mission (team rocket).
DP Beat Cynthia a second time
Pt.: Beat platinums frontier brains; beat Cynthia a second time.
HGSS: Collect all 8 Kanto badges; Beat lance a second time after collecting 8 kanto badges(optional)
BW: Beat alder a first time.
B2W2: Beat Black City/White Tower last boss.
XY: Beat rival at kiloude City
ORAS: Beat Zinnia.

For B2/W2 you can do the challenge mode if you would like to. Also if you'd like, you can post your journey down below so everyone can see. Also, you CAN NOT trade any shinies over. You have to catch them within the game you are playing. No exceptions. You can also do multiple games at one of you chose to do so.

Here's my sign up:

Well, first update:

Got a shiny mudkip after 78 SR's, beat rival, made it to petalburg. Tried dexnaving for shiny ralts, got seedot instead. No complaints about this. (I'm doing every rival/head boss of team magma as like a gym.)

No offense, this seems like a total pain in the butt. I found my first shiny through chaining yesterday and that took near on 2 hours. It just doesn't seem worth it.

Been trying to get another shiny or 2 before I faced my final. Nothing yet. Hopefully I can get one today.

and yeah it can be. But it's a challenge I was willing to try and post it here in case if anyone else wanted to try it.

Started doing something similar to this on my AS, might as well sign up

Username: TheCrystalFlaaffy
Game: Alpha Sapphire
Difficulty: Standard

The difference between this challenge and what I'm doing is that I have to catch a shiny on every route, SR every possible gift Pokemon and stationary encounter I can, and have a full team of shinies by the end of the playthrough.

Currently at 1050 SRs for Treecko and counting. I'll update when I make some more progress

Just posting to let you know I'm still participating, just not having much luck with this Treecko. I'm at 1297 SRs and still no shiny. I am working on it right now though so hopefully I get it soon

That's fine. I know how hard it can be to get a shiny starter at the beginning of the game (even though I got a shiny mudkip in about 79 SR's, which is the quickest I got one without breeding). I still haven't had much luck in my game either.

Took a little break from soft resetting but I'm back in it now, at 1,800 SRs and counting for that Treecko and I won't stop until I get it!

This is the longest it's ever taken me to get a shiny but I'll keep pushing through. While taking a break I was playing my Omega Ruby and breeding for a competitively viable Ludicolo and got a shiny without even trying, hopefully that didn't take my luck away from me. I know the Lotad doesn't count for the challenge but I'm still really happy with it and thought I would share

Finally got my Treecko after 1957 SRs! It's a lonely nature too, not too bad. Looks like Smaug is going to be a nice mixed attacker

Looking for a shiny Poochyena on Route 101 now. Hopefully I find it sooner than I found Treecko.

So I've been trying to get a ralts again. No luck yet. I'm thinking of trying to get an electric type or a water type recently though.
