    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!

    Current Contests:

    The 2016 Yearly Quest: The Shinies are Teeming!!!!

    It's 2016, and the shinies are teeming! They're also teaming, creating teams to band together!

    Create as many of the following teams as possible!
    • Six Grass-type shinies!
    • Six Fire-type shinies!
    • Six Water-type shinies!
    • Six Electric-type shinies!
    • Six Normal-type shinies!
    • Six Fighting-type shinies!
    • Six Ground-type shinies!
    • Six Rock-type shinies!
    • Six Ghost-type shinies!
    • Six Poison-type shinies!
    • Six Flying-type shinies!
    • Six Bug-type shinies!
    • Six Ice-type shinies!
    • Six Psychic-type shinies!
    • Six Dark-type shinies!
    • Six Steel-type shinies!
    • Six Dragon-type shinies!
    • Six Fairy-type shinies!
    • Six shinies from Gen I!
    • Six shinies from Gen II!
    • Six shinies from Gen III!
    • Six shinies from Gen IV!
    • Six shinies from Gen V!
    • Six shinies from Gen VI!
    • Six starters!
    • Six legendaries!
    • Six Pokemon whose names begin with the same letter!

    The Yearly Quest lasts until 11:59 PM on December 31st, 2016. Chained and Friend Safaried Pokemon are not allowed, but they can be counted in a parallel "Chained/Friend Safaried Yearly Quest."

    Each Pokemon can only count for one team, but you get to pick which team it counts for at the end of the year. Each team may only be completed once.

    In addition, there is also a 2016 Challenge: Find Pokemon whose first letters spell out T-W-E-N-T-Y-S-I-X-T-E-E-N! You must find 13 Pokemon to complete this challenge. One Pokemon can only count for one letter (you get to pick which one), but its evolutions could count instead if you so choose. For example, shiny Cyndaquil could count for one of C, Q, or T. Unown count for their letter.

    Completing the 2016 Challenge counts as three teams towards the Yearly Quest.

    Instead of Monthly Quests, 2016 will feature Seasonal Quests. These will last for several months and allow you to create teams for the Yearly Quest that will not be available as choices during the other seasons of the year. Get the Seasonal Teams while they last!!

    The 2016 Spring Quest!!!!

    There are two additional teams available for you to complete this Spring: Team Spring and Team Vivillion!

    Team Spring:
    • A Grass-type shiny!
    • A Bug-type shiny!
    • A Water-type shiny!
    • A Flying-type shiny!
    • A Poison-type shiny!
    • A Baby shiny!

    You can replace any one of these six slots with a shiny Spoink. Spoink would make an awesome captain for Team Spring.

    Team Vivillion:
    • Six shiny Vivillion!
    • Each Vivillion must have a different pattern!

    The 2016 Spring Quest will last until 11:59 PM on June 10, 2016 (this one's only two months instead of three, so make sure to bring some extra luck with you!).

    Good luck and have fun!

    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.
