Almost to the 7th Gym. I keep going back to look for a Shiny Honedge or Espurr....still no luck. I really don't think they made it easier at all and it was just a wishful rumor.

Quote originally posted by HaphazardAsylum:
i havent read anywhere about them changing the formula but they did bring back the poke radar so if they did mention it being easier then they could have been referring to that
A friend of mine got it and says you can't even use the Radar as it used to be used. I dunno. It may have a different use unless someone here has it and it does like it used to. My Friend keeps getting the "Time and place to use this" message while standing near grass.

I find it so weird that people haven't found more shinies. I have played the games since gen 1 so that's a big part of it but not counting the shiny gyarados in gold/silver I have found without cheating or hacking:

Wooper (GSC)
Grimer (GSC hack)
Caterpie (Fire Red)
Natu (Leaf Green)
Taillow (Fire Red hack)
Koffing (Leaf Green)
Poochyena (Emerald)
Nidoran (m) (Leaf Green) - Raised him all the way to level 100
Staravia (Diamond)

Honestly it's to the point where I have probably forgot one or two because I have been so lucky in finding them. It is so exciting and I wish you all the best in finding your own.

I wouldn't be opposed to them slightly altering the ratios because it is so much fun finding them and I think they should make it so you get about 1 per play through. But I heard it got knocked all the way to 1/250 which would be a little ridiculous.

Does it still increases the chances to get a shiny if you breed two Pokémon form different regions? Let's say a Japanese Ditto and a European Charmander?

75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature.

Caught a shiny snover. It was purely accidental; I was only going thru route 17 when I accidentally encountered the thing, managed to catch it tho ;;. I found this hilarious since I found another shiny two weeks ago on my black 2 game (maybe I have really dumb luck? a good deal of pokemon I caught have good natures as well ahah)

That aside, I might try to use it in a competitive battle team too, since I found out I can work around with its nature (adamant)

I don't think the Poke-gods look fondly upon me.

I've been playing the games since they first came out, and I've yet to even encounter a shiny in the wild in any of the games.

One day!

Jeez it seems like everyone except me has caught a shiny in this game.

I've had reasonable luck with shinies in the past, I've caught about three. Although I didn't encounter any during the 5th gen.

I never really noticed that much because it's previous form wasn't really that different.

Spoiler:


I don't really call this luck anymore. I haven't encountered a shiny since Pokémon Silver.
I think they've made it a lot easier.

Wow so many shinies, I have only seen 3 shinies in 13 years of playing Pokemon which was a Tentacool in Emerald and an Exeggcute and a Phanpy in FireRed. Hopefully I manage to snag something cool in my X version

Found myself a rather charming blue Trapinch a few hours ago. Suffice it to say, she instantly became a member of my team. She's only a level off of evolving into a Vibrava now!

Man I am so jealous! That's ridiculous.
I've been doing constant horde battles (and hatching eggs using Masuda Method as well) forever. Hopefully it's my time soon D: Especially if they raised the chances!

I've only had one shiny that was hitmonlee in 2nd gen. I was too young to really appreciate, though, 'cause i didn't know what a shiny was so I was like "huh, that's weird".

I haven't found one yet, unfortunately. I've had good luck with shinies before, so I'm hoping that hasn't run out yet :P

So I found this shiny Goomy that's very cute on road 14.

I can't find my ****ing cam recorder and my cellphone won't upload the pic on my computer, but I will ask a friend to do it with theirs tomorrow.

(Wait, I can't even post a link ? This is stupid >:[ )

Hopefully I'm the first to ever find it :]
