    Sorry to be a pest and spam, but while trying to RE a Cottonee, this baby showed up! I got it live as well, it wasn't what I wanted, but hey, it's a shiny! I don't get IV's and EV's but I have a slight understanding of natures, how can I work with her to make her better?

    Spoiler:






    My next target is definitely going to be MM'ing Litwick, and RE'ing for a Solosis, wish me luck! Also, I think I have rookies luck, considering I got her the day I joined this club.

    PS: I had to delete my previous message because I messed up.

      Welcome to the Shiny Hunter's Club, Lake of Retro! Congrats on the shiny Swadloon! Litwick was a MM target of mine during the spring. I ended up giving up once I reached 1,500 eggs.

      Welcome to the Shiny Hunter's Club, iRock!

      My Sandile hunt ended at 108 eggs. I got what I wanted when it comes to IVs. So far I've hatched 7 Axews. I'm considering returning to Litwick after I get the IVs I want on Axew. I might try to get the Litwick count up to 2,000.

        I was just curious, what do you think is the fastest method to collect and hatch eggs?

          Landorus may be busy to come on, you could either wait for him or I am not sure if G-money could do anything with your list, you'd have to ask but yeah.

            Welcome to the club! We don't require proof of shinies, but you're more than welcome to take pictures or post videos of your shinies!

            Haha, that's about the least spammy you could possibly get, "lol." Congrats on an awesome shiny!

            Make sure the first Pokemon in your party has either Flame Body or Magma Armor. What I do is take 5 eggs, bike back and forth, release them, and get 5 more, but I'm not really a hatching expert. Some of the more experienced MMers fill up boxes before hatching, but I'm not sure which method is faster. Latios Master probably knows more about that.

            That's because...

            *drumroll*

            I am now the official ShinyDex updater!! Everybody, send me a PM of all of your shinies, and I'll edit them into the ShinyDex and put it on the fourth post of this thread.

            I was right! I win a cookie!

            I have an update.

            I started keeping track of my shiny snivy SRs, I am up to 320 since I have recorded them, but I can imagine I've done about 800-900 or so before I started! I hope it will shine soon!

              GAH!!! I just SRed over a shiny Chikorita!!! Darn it, I was SRing too fast! The bright pinkness was blatantly obvious as soon as I saw it, but my finger had already pushed the button.

              MetalMario is going to kill me. :o

                im working on charmander again, getting very frustrated but im hoping it shines soon.

                also it will be nice to see an updated list of all the shinies we've all gotten

                  I always take longer than I need to with SRs just so this will never happen.

                    What I do is I have a Pokémon in the first slot of my team know Fly, in my case Archeops, so that I can hatch eggs on Skyarrow Bridge. In the second slot I have a Pokémon who knows Flame Body, in my case one of the many Litwick that I've hatched. Magma Armor works as well, just like G-Money mentioned. Those abilities cut the number of steps needed to hatch an egg in half. I collect four eggs to round out my party and fly to Castelia City and ride my bike back and forth on the Skyarrow Bridge. When they all hatch I put them in the PC and get four more eggs. When I fill up a box or two in the PC I count them up (30 spots in a box) and add them to the total number that I've hatched of that specific Pokémon on a TextEdit document on my Mac computer. After I count them up I fly to Nimbasa City and go to the Gear station to show each Pokémon I hatched to the judge there to see how good the IVs are. I keep the ones who have good IVs and release the rest.

                    I'm sorry to hear about the shiny Chikorita, G-Money.

                    I have a suggestion for you Latios. You could also go left of the pokemon center in Nimbasa City, I call it the battle club but anyway save in front of the guy, and well yes it's only one specie at a time, but it's much more accurate to check IV's since they are leveled up to 50. But whatever works for you just a suggestion for a fellow hunter.

In the second slot I have a Pokémon who knows Flame Body, in my case one of the many Litwick that I've hatched. Magma Armor works as well, just like G-Money mentioned. Those abilities cut the number of steps needed to hatch an egg in half. I collect four eggs to round out my party and fly to Castelia City and ride my bike back and forth on the Skyarrow Bridge. When they all hatch I put them in the PC and get four more eggs. When I fill up a box or two in the PC I count them up (30 spots in a box) and add them to the total number that I've hatched of that specific Pokémon on a TextEdit document on my Mac computer. After I count them up I fly to Nimbasa City and go to the Gear station to show each Pokémon I hatched to the judge there to see how good the IVs are. I keep the ones who have good IVs and release the rest.
                      Thanks for the amazing reply! But when I use a Litwick with Flame Body it seems that it only effects the eggs closest, are you sure that it effects the whole party?

But whatever works for you :) just a suggestion for a fellow hunter.
                        That's something that I plan on doing later on with the ones that I checked in the Battle Subway that I already know have a perfect IV or two to see what the rest of the IVs are. I use the Battle Subway to quickly weed out the bad ones.

                        Lake of Retro: It works for all eggs you have with you, not just the close ones.

                          So I went on a road trip for the 4th of July and I did somehwhere around 14 hours of breeding lol. I got around 400 eggs from that! I gotta say though it's pretty dull going back and fourth and back and fourth..... BUT IM NOT COMPLAINING because its so exhilarating when you finally get a shiny!

                          G-Money... Shiny mew and celebi can definitely be legit even if they're really hard to obtain. (Mew from SRing in Emerald via old map & celebi from Japanese Colosseum bonus disc)

                          On other news.... July Jam is officially over

                            Congrats on the shiny Cranidos, 2Cool4Mewtwo! Btw, the gen 4 Pokémon for July Jam is Cresselia, not Cranidos, so it's far from over.

                            Litwick: 1,601
                            Axew: 39

                            The Axews that I'm hatching are terrible in many ways, so it may be awhile before I hatch a good one. Bronzor will be my next target after Axew.

                                Welcome to the club! Another popular form of shiny hunting is soft reseting: save in front of a starter/legendary/Pokemon that's given to you and check its summary to see if it's shiny. If not, hit L, R, Start, and Select at the same time, and it'll restart your game to where you last saved. Do that until you have a shiny!

                                Good luck!
