Ok, about 10 hours of resetting, at 5 resets a minute, still no luck. I will be able to reset a lot more in a few days, though, the finals are tomorrow and the day after.

Been a good day for me as I got 2 shinies
(well, one is Red Gyarados from Lake of Rage so doesn't really count!)

The other one was the 11,791st one I saw and it evolves into my favorite Pokemon of them all:

Spoiler:


Man he is so cute and I can't wait to fully evolve him. Once I got him I quickly beat Morty and went to Lake of Rage to get a second one for the day Tomorrow I will aim to get the next 3 badges (taking me from my current 4 to 7) and then it's a case of finding that next one. I have an idea about where to look but not sure yet.

And just because it never gets old, here's Red Gyarados as well (lighting was better in first photo).

Spoiler:


Hope your searches are going well too!

Not gonna lie... starting to lose hope... I'm around 20k SRs after a month of hunting... Still no shiny... Any encouragement before I cave?

Once you get it it is SO worth it! LOVING my Dragonair and Typhlosion (and Red Gyarados too).

Update - have 7 badges now. Hunting for shiny #3. Am using Gyarados but not counting him towards the challenge.

I know that. But this is my longest hunt. I got Ho-oh in HG faster than I got this piplup and Ho-oh was the closest I got to 10k SRs

Guys, I hate to have to butt in again, but things are still a bit more on the discussion side. While I'm fine with some discussion, it's still really heavy on that in here. I normally have a loose grip with challenges and I'm pretty lenient with them, but please guys, if you need encouragement or just want to chat about your SR number and such (posting your SR count is fine though, as long as you have more than just "i'm at 5k srs guys" add your team maybe or some progress you might have made?), please take it to your club. I know most of you aren't familiar with the rules in here or how things work, and that's fine. But if you need to, please read the rules to get an understanding of this forum, or even just check out some of the other threads.

If I get more reports for this thread, I'll have to crank down hard on it, and I'd really rather not. Thanks for understanding.

Congrats on the recent shinies everyone even though I don't think I've missed any since my last post.

anyway SHINY ABRA AFTER 13155 SEEN!!! My longest hunt if you count pokemon obtained.



Yes this took 4 days and 2631 SRs/13155 I'm so freaking happy! I thought I might get another long hunt since I got my mareep finally and I deserved to suffer for getting it! But its here and it certainly didn't take that long the nature is hasty and its characteristic is often dozes off which is not to bad. I'm really happy guys thanks for all the support and good luck with all your hunts!


2 SHINIES IN 1 DAY 2X IN THE SAME MONTH! SHINY SUDOWOODO AFTER 427 SRs!



I found this shiny last night at 11:00pm and I immediately froze in disbelief before shutting the DS to catch the sparkles and you don't get to see the battle because I upload videos to youtube and I like to catch the sparkles to my shinies. This shiny is so beautiful I did not expect it to appear so early pretty sure my next hunt will be long so *throws my luck to everyone* good luck guys .

While I was resetting (a bit too quickly) I accidently resetted away a shiny chikorita. I only saw a glimpse of it. Anyways, 14 hours of resetting done. I am going to keep going.

I'd like to ask Kitori if you could be so kind to add a game with my name on Soul Silver? I'll start hunting there too since nidoran on fire red is a pain in the *beep* lol.

@ Paul: Gratz on your dratini man !!

@ Cheese: Gratz on your Abra :O, that sure is long lol!

@ SoulSilver: That really is unfortunate . I really hope you reclaim it soon .

PLEASE make sure you're following the rules! Read the forum's rules, Sydian's posts in this thread, and browse other challenges to see the format.

Discussion should be taking place in the Shiny Hunters Club. Please don't make us the worst thread to moderate! :X

I believe I have everyone updated on the challenge. If your entry is not up to date send me a VM. It would be really helpful if everyone would post what badge they are on and how many shinies they have at the end of an update so I don't have to sift through your posts when going to update the challenge! Thanks!

Madusa method is acceptable as long as you're using the parents solely for breeding and not using them in combat at all.

Quick question. I'm interested in giving this a try, but the problem is that I would want my shiny Pokemon to remain UT so they can be cloned and offered in my trade shop. Would it be acceptable to, upon encountering a shiny Pokemon, transfer it to a different game for cloning, then send it back? It would require catching a Pokemon at the beginning of the game, so I can trade the starter. Of course, it then would be released and not actually used for battling.

I already keep a copy of HeartGold version laying around for SRing for a shiny starter, so this would at least put it to more use.

I would deem this as acceptable as long as you play on the game the shinies are originally from so they don't get boosted exp.

Of course. They would only be sent over to Diamond version until they are cloned, then back to the original game for my team. (:
