    Ok the club is already known by much

    but ill state some rules here

    1. Have full respect between all members of the club; any insult or disrespect will result in an infraction.

    2. To join, all you need to do is post! In your first post, please list the shinies you own and what you're currently hunting.

    3. You don't need any shinies to join! The only requirement is that you look for shinies, at least some of the time.

    4. Please don't lie. Having more shinies doesn't earn you extra status in the club, but compulsive lying could earn you an infraction. We can tell.

    5. All members of the club are completely equal. However, some members hold duties to make sure that the club is as fun as it can be:

    FOUNDERS - These are the people who came up with the idea of creating a Shiny Hunters Club. It's thanks to them that we have this thread for discussion with our fellow hunters! The club founders wield absolute power and can help out the club in any way they see fit.

    OWNER - The owner watches over the club and makes sure that it's a fun place for members to talk about shiny hunting. He or she can give infractions, promote members, create rules, and create contests in which members can participate.

    CO-OWNERS - Co-owners wield the same power as the owner and make sure that the club is a fun place to be; however, they cannot promote or demote members. If the owner has not posted in 3 months or more, the co-owners will decide who will become the new owner.

    RETIRED CO-OWNERS - These are great shiny hunters of days past who have really helped the club. They are "dormant" co-owners and may reclaim their co-owner status upon their return.

    6. Founders, owners, and co-owners may only use their power when absolutely necessary. The SHC is a forgiving club, and we understand that some members might make mistakes or forget a rule. For this reason, 3 infractions are required before a member receives a six month ban; 2 more infractions after the ban will result in a permanent ban.

    Infractions expire after 30 days. Once an infraction has expired, it's as if it never happened.

    7. If the owner goes 3 months without posting, ownership is transferred to the co-owner who has had at least one post for the most consecutive months. If the two longest-active co-owners are tied for the same amount of months, ownership is transferred to whoever's post came first in that month.

    8. No one is above the rules. Founders, owners, and co-owners can receive infractions just like everyone else.

    I don't want to look aggressive or too formal, but we genuinely love hunting shinies and want to make sure that everyone is at liberty to discuss freely, without fear of being insulted or excluded.

    If anyone disagrees with any rule, feel free to post your concerns and we'll be more than happy to talk about it.

    And last but certainly not least, the most important rule of all:

    9. Have fun!

    Now go and hunt some shinies!

    Current Contests:

    Quest #2: Tom Brady!

    All ambiguities have been dispensed with; all doubts eradicated; all questions laid forever to rest. Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T. - the Greatest of All Time! To commemorate this undeniable fact, we will hunt for shiny GoGOAT, or its preevolution, Skiddo. Tom Brady's skills and accomplishments will certainly shine forever in the great tapestry of history, and a shiny Gogoat/Skiddo will shine atop the 2017 SHC Leaderboard to honor the #1 shiny hunter.

    The first shiny hunter to find a shiny Skiddo or Gogoat will receive 1 point for the Yearly Quest, putting them in first place on the leaderboard! There will only be one winner, who will have one point, since there can only be one G.O.A.T.

    This Quest will run concurrently with Quest #1. Shinies may not be counted for multiple quests, but you can decide which Quest you want your shiny to count for if it's eligible for multiple Quests! This Quest will last until someone finds a shiny Skiddo or Gogoat.

    You are highly encouraged to name your shiny Tom (or Brady!), but if you don't feel like honoring the QB with the most passing yards in SuperBowl history, you are more than welcome to name your Gogoat Bill, after Bill Belichick, the greatest coach in the history of the NFL. Or you could even name your Gogoat Pat, to celebrate the greatest franchise and the greatest dynasty in the history of football.

    Good luck and have fun!

    SHC Leaderboard:

    1) Maserati777: 5 points
    2) G-Money: 3 points
    3) Chr. Draco: 1 point

    Complete Quests to gain points and rise in the SHC Leaderboard!

    If anyone has any ideas or suggestions for the club, feel free to post them for discussion or PM one of the owners or co-owners and we will be more than willing to discuss implementing new features or contests to the club!

    Shiny FAQ

    Q: What are shiny Pokemon?

    A: Shiny Pokemon are simply Pokemon colored differently which have a 1/8192 chance of appearing anywhere a wild Pokemon can be obtained from Generation II on. The difference may
    be barely noticeable, or drastic.

    Q: In what games do shiny Pokemon appear in?

    A: Shiny Pokemon have a 1/8192 chance of appearing in any game other than Pokemon Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow. Note that they do appear in Red and
    Green’s remakes, FireRed and LeafGreen.

    Q: Are shiny Pokemon more powerful than normal Pokemon?

    A: No. Shiny Pokemon have the exact same stats as a normal Pokemon.

    Q: Is there any way to make shiny Pokemon appear more easily?

    A: Yes. Starting in Generation IV, the Masuda method, used by putting two Pokemon from a different language game into the day-care and breeding them, obviously included as an extra incentive to use the GTS, will increase the odds to 1/1639 in Generation IV, and 1/1366 in Generation V. Note that to do this the two Pokemon can NOT be from the same foreign language, nor can any one of them be from an in-game trade. In G/S/C if at least one of the parents is a shiny, the odds are 1/64. The Odd Egg you receive in Crystal has a 14% chance of being a shiny, 50% in the Japanese version.

    Q: Will breeding two shiny Pokemon have a higher chance of hatching a shiny?

    A: No. There is no way to increase the chances other than the Masuda
    method, except for in G/S/C, detailed above.

    Q: Does a dry internal battery in Ruby and Sapphire affect shiny Pokemon?

    A: Yes. If you get the message “The internal battery has run dry. The game can be played, but clock-based events will no longer occur” when starting your game, you can no longer obtain shinies by soft resetting the game. You can still obtain shinies by encountering, however.

    Q: What is the supposed “Broken RNG” in Pokemon Emerald?

    Essentially, The RNG in Emerald is set from the beginning of when you start your game, so you'd have to pick a whole new character, ID number, etc. each time you reset because the sole factor in the RNG calculation is amount of time since you turned on your game. You'll see a certain set of characteristics (shinyness, nature, etc.) for every Pokemon you see 1 second after turning on the game, another for every Pokemon you see 2 seconds after you turn on the game, etc. This means that it's possible to hunt in Emerald in the wild as long as you leave your game plugged in and just run around in the grass endlessly.
