          Yep. My main problem is that I quit too easily and try to do something else in the game to speed up the process. But it doesn't do a thing. I just switch out my breeder Pokemon... I've went through like 100 eggs of Skarmory, Cacnea, Vulpix, Ponyta, Venonat, Swablu, and so many more. It's insane. All my luck is in poker.

          I got Pokemon Emerald today, but my main focus is on FR: Battling Wild Pokemon to bring up Shiny Ninetails' level. That way, well, I'm shiny hunting at the same time!
          I don't know what to put in my FR Daycare though. I don't really need the Ponyta and female Ninetails anymore, since I have what I wanted (except the hatchlings know Hypnosis. I have TONS of them....).
          What I was going to do (I remember now) was bring up my traded Colosseum Gligar to Level 52, that way I can decline to the learning of Guillotine (or however you spell it), and then put it in the daycare with one of my Dittos, and see if I can obtain a blue Gligar.
          Why?
          I never see ANYONE with a Gligar. It's like, one of THE most overlooked Pokemon. Well, that's just what I think, but... The blue coloring would be nice to have. Just another way of thinking it. I've never really trained a Gligar, but I like them alot. When I was trying the Colosseum one out (brung it's level up to 45 I think), I enjoyed using it with it's high defense and attack, along with Sand Attack, the occasional Poison Sting to poison the opponent, and... I don't use Faint Attack because of it's super low Special Attack. So, if you aren't asleep by now, I would mainly use it for strong non-special attacks, and do like I do with the Ninetails, "Abort" when a specific Pokemon comes up. The Ninetails' Defense is kinda low, and I always dread when somebody uses Slash or whatnot.

          On Sapphire, I've hatched about 40 more eggs since I last mentioned it. No luck. (Bet you didn't see THAT coming...... )

          On Emerald, I'm in the first forest, and I've got extra PokeBalls just in case I run upon one. It's most certainly a possibility.

          I have to ask a question.

          What does your Trainer ID have to do with the Shiny hunting? Does it somehow increase or decrease your chances, or did your boxes just fill up? Or did you just get tired and wanted to refresh the game?

            I think that the trainer ID generates a few of the numbers in the shiny-making equation...but i could be wrong

              That's the theory at least!
              Well! Wow... we have like 3 new members since my last post? This is great! Welcome to the best club in all of PC - we're all like big, dorky, obsessive family here - I hope you all will fit in well; based on what I've seen thus far we shouldn't have any problems.

              I added DDD to my AIM buddy list and would be glad to chat it up with any of the new (or old for that matter) hunters. rsgh5 - I live on AIM.

              I haven't hunted too much today, but I'll definatly get on it this evening when I'm watching a movie or TV or whatever mindless activity comes up.

              Happy hunting!

              Edit: New members - head over to the SHCard request thread if you'd like one of the exciting cards featured in most of our signatures. Here's a link!

                Yay, Haunter Master and MM are on! Hi people!

                Anyways, I haven't hunted much, I've been going to parties and over friends houses too much to get any real hunting done. I'm going to try for 1300 tonight. I'm at 1040. Scyther is looking less and less cool every time I see it, and every time I see an Adamant, Naughty, or Lonely Male, I almost yell at it to be Shiny. Adamant seems to have the highest IVs for Scyther, so I'm hoping for a Male Adamant Shiny (that'll require TONS of luck).

                Yeah, so I might not go to the river like I thought I would, I'm almost happy. I'll still have time to Shiny Hunt if I don't go. Well, good luck on all of the hunts and I'm rooting for Lady Darkmoon and Shido in the Absol Race *cheers*.

                Goodnight Hunters, and welcome Night Hunters!

                  I hunted in LG today bringing my Minun from mid-seventys to level 100, and then my Altaria from 35 to 50-something, no shiny Vulpix.

                  Welcome to all new menbers! Good luck hunting!

                  KK, thank you for rooting for shido and me. (So far this time around, 106 Absol eggs hatched.)

                      Guess what guys? I caught shiny Eevee!!! Okay. I was in D'MoneyBoi's room(again) and i got it. I wasn't thinking about it at ALL. And it just popped up. It was late when I got it, and he was asleep, so he didn't care too much. I think I got it at 1:40 AM(EST) Careful nature

                      Average IVs:

                      HP 24
                      12 Atk
                      22 Def
                      20 SAtk
                      30 SDef
                      24 Spd...lol, at first, I put this as SDef too out of sheer excitement.
                      Perfect for Umbreon. Too bad Umbreon need egg moves to work. I think i should make it an Umbreon, or a Jolteon. What should I evolve it into?

                        Personally i think Flareon looks the best, i'd love to have a golden Flareon, but congrats on the catch MeleeMaster!

                        I agree Gligar can be such a good mon to use with the right Strategy (i seem to like a lot of UU pokémon) and of course a blue colour scheme would just add to its coolness XD

                        well i've just got in from College and i'm about to find my DS and get a hunting, i plan to be onto speed EV's with Raticate by the end of the night if my attention span will allow me too XD

                        Happy hunting.

                          BTW Gligar is perfect for taking on the first level of the Battle Pyramid, with Earthquake for the Electric types and Aerial Ace for the Grass types.

                          I only have one shiny so far, wild shiny Electrike caught on Route 118. I'm not actively hunting for one per se, but I am doing a lot of breeding to fill up Pokemon Box so I can get the Surfing Pichu. So, who knows, I may breed myself a shiny.

                            Still nothing. Occasionally I catch Mewtwo to test my skills and my best so far is half health and one pokeball. I hope he will reveal himself to me in his shiny form.

                            Oh and no luck on my other FireRed for Ponyta. Of course I could hunt for Mewtwo at the same time if one of my friends comes over. Then I might have double the chance of getting a shiny. Perhaps two, of one kind.

                              The only problem with Gligars is that they can only be found in Emerald and on Colos. The thing is, on Emerald, they're only in the Safari Zone, and there's only one in Colos. Anyway, I decided to search for a shiny Dunsparce (it's red! ). My computer's internet is wacky, so I can't post that much. Good luck to all the new members, and SHIDO! YOU HAVE SHINY DUNSPARCE! I envy you soooooooo much.

                                  I havent been able to hunt much lately and Im startin to think a shiny absol isnt worth the days Ive put into hunting for it. I rarely see an absol so if u do the math, the chances of seeing a shiny one r far more than 1/8192. Does any1 have some good ideas of what to hunt for?

                                  P.S.- To all the hunter that have shiny absols, I must congraulate you!

                                    Avast ye, it won't appear. But it's green tint is rather nice.

                                    SHINY SHEET

                                    Pokemon: Mewtwo
                                    Color: Green
                                    Location: Unknown Dungeon
                                    Motivation: The struggle of trying to get my first shiny.

                                    SHINY SHEET 2
                                    Pokemon: Ponyta
                                    Color: Blue
                                    Location: Kindle Road
                                    Motivation: The urge of getting my first shiny.

                                    Um, I think I'll start to write more Shiny Sheets because they help me keep track of who I'm hunting.

                                    Hunting Ponyta and it's blue flames when I get off the computer. Oh and considering buying 5 Abras for a shiny Alakazam.

                                      I nicknamed my Eevee. It is Casper, cuz it looks like a ghost, at least for now. I decided to evolve it into Umbreon, even though I will have to wait to evolve it.

                                      Oh, and I have already begun SRing for my newest target... Abra! I don't have 9999 coins, I only have 8300. I am not really far on my game yet(I only have 4 badges), so I am short on money, and I don't feel like SRing. Heh, I am gonna soft reset for every second I am in D'MoneyBoi's room from now on!

                                              Shido, you have shiny Treeco? That's awesome. I'm still hunting for:
                                              Saph: Nothing, currently
                                              LG: Also nothing
                                              FR: Dunsparce
                                              Emerald: Absol
                                              100 Dunsparce and nothing yet (Every fiftyth one is a female at level 35) but I'm not worried. Others have gone way longer!
