Oh, come on! Didn't I tell you how I found shiny Linoone already? I felt absolutely awful when that thing came along!

By my calculations, I've seen 106 Treeckos. This is very approximate and based on the odds of seeing a female with 20HP: 3/64. This is a bad way to count but it's all I've got.

      We don't allow cheating in this club. Also, "I have all those plus some" is grade A pkmaster style behaviour. Please provide us with an honest listing of shinies you've found without cheating or you can't be a member.
      MetalMario, could you teach me how to do the shiny dance?

      And I am soft resetting for a female Timd Treecko, but it is taking longer than I expected... maybe I will find a shiny?

      I have been here on PokeCommunity for over a year but never joined this club and it seems interesting.
      If so, may I please join this group? Thanks, Sceptile*Lover

        RayquazaX, you're in once you list what (if any) shinies you own.

        213 Treeckos. My last Emerald evac operation was kind of messy, so I'll have to organize things on Fire Red and Sapphire so I can hunt on them again. Doing nothing but one target can get tiring.

            How are you counting the soft resets u do MM?

            And, I don't know why, but I have taken a sudden liking to shiny waters, especially Mudkip, so I guess I will breed for one. I will breed it on my Emerald, after I get shiny Treecko from breeding(or maybe I will get it from what I am doing now, but I don't expect it), or if I get bored of hatching Treecko eggs.

            No luck with charmander though. I am not sure how many soft resets I have done, but I think I am at least at 20,000. This is just an assumption, but I have been nearly non-stop for two months, it seems like a reasonable number to me. I hope I don't end up like Demonic, but it seems like I am already there...

            Edit: I have every pokemon except for Mew, and they are all legitimate.

              Hello everyone. I have caught some shinies, and I was wondering if I could join this club. I would be honored if I could and I would most definately look for more shinies! Thank you everyone.

                I have been hunting for a Feebas that I can use to breed, so that I can get a shiny Feebas. Hopefully, I will just find one in the wild, but I still have to find the tiles where they are located.

                  Level 37 Charizard, and on my way to Rock Tunnel.

                  Still not shiny hunting but I'm planning to look for a Dratini.

                    If you'll tell us what they are, then yes.

                    I'm hatching some old eggs to make room in my Fire Red to continue hunting. No progress with Treecko. I'll get a new Trainer ID each Sunday morning.

                            What does getting new Trainer ID do?

                              New Trainer ID? I don't understand...

                              Well... I don't know if I'm in or not... but if accepted, I will be true to this club and search for shinies when I have free time, promise!

                                Some crazy people (like MM and all those who subscribe to his theories) believe that there may be a connection with your Trainer ID and your liklihood of encountering a shiny. I can't really speak for MM, but my guess would be that his getting a new ID number every week has something to do with that.

                                My sister has loads of crazy little friends in the house - so I'm stuck in my room shiny hunting. Boo-yes, gentlemen (and ladies).

                                *Gets on teh huntage*

                                Edit: Yuscrecio, which version(s) did you get those shinies in? And 4 shinies is nothing to scoff at; I hunt frequently and only have 3. Also, posts like, "Yay for shiny pokemon hunting" are happy moral boosters - but double as spam; so let's keep that down. You can conclude posts with outbursts like that, but staying on topic is somewhat expected here (emphisis on "somewhat"). Example:

                                Woot - shiny hunting is absolute pwnage!

                                  I count the number of females with 20HP I see. For each, I add 21.3333 to my total count.


                                  Is it my fault that Nintendo are pricks and don't tour anywhere near where I live?


                                  If you'll tell us what they are, then yes.

                                  I'm hatching some old eggs to make room in my Fire Red to continue hunting. No progress with Treecko. I'll get a new Trainer ID each Sunday morning.
                                  Heh, Nintendo has only had two events where I live, the Aurora Ticket download, and the current JAA. But you live in Canada, and I don't think they have events up there.

                                  No luck with charm, but I am willing to wait. I can wait to see the joy on my face(lol) when/if I finally get it.

                                    What is this JAA thing you speak of?

                                    ...~{★★ HAPPY PAGE 300!! ★★}~...

                                    It's a monumental day in SHC history: we've finally hit Page 300! XD And, thankfully, it's not a spam fiesta like our Pg. 200 milestone... A special thanks goes out to all our dedicated members who've made this club such a great, fun place to be. Keep up the good work, folks! Here's to another awesome 100 pages!

                                    (See ryan, this is NOT spam! ^.^ And what did I say about Page 300? Guess I can only claim the odd hundredth pages... And did I move up at all from bazillionth on your list?)

                                    Back to the subject, I've found a number of strange surprises in my box of random eggs, including a Vulpix I don't recall breeding. I'm pretty sure I've pre-hatched these eggs, so there probably aren't any shinies among them. (well, unless I traded them to another game, but that's not worth the effort)

                                    Ya think? Event Pokémon are not worth bragging about, as their distribution is unfair.

                                      Eh, that was my earlier post. I just recently got my new Abra. Modest. Bad evs. I think, since i can't calculate EV's. It's awesome. and Charizard is Lv 43.
                                      Boy, I didn't expect an abra. Of all things. an Abra! BTW MM, do you mind adding Alakazam to my SHCC

                                      Maybe this should be the shiny dance.

                                        Yes, you may join. Welcome to the SHC on this monumental milestone!

                                        You may request an SHC card HERE!!! (Yeah, I've started putting the !!s inside the link...)

                                        Still organizing boxes on FR. I have a Cyndaquil to evolve, and I might breed a competitive one (not necessarily shiny; I DON'T like Typhlosion's shiny form) since he's my favourite Pokémon. I also have a Kyogre I should finish training to L100 in the Cerulean Cave. Leveling up random pokes is always a good way to find shinies.

                                        Edit:
                                        Agent9, the JAA is the "Journey Across America." Nintendo visits a few places and offers the people there the unobtainible Pokémon, Celebi. They also hold tournaments only open to US residents. (As in, even if I take a train to Boston or something, I'm still hosed.)
