    That's just a hundred eggs behind my Litwick hunt. I hope you have better luck than I have had. My secondary hunt for Axew is currently at 152 eggs. I've hatched close to 2,400 eggs using the Masuda Method so far. I hope I get my first MM shiny soon.

    I'm surprised that the first shiny for the current contest hasn't been found yet, especially with how quickly they were found during the last contest. I haven't found a shiny Frillish yet on my route. I wished the shiny version of the female Frillish was a different color instead of just a darker pink. I have to be extra careful that I don't run away from a shiny one. The shiny version of male Frillish are green instead of blue, so a male shiny would be more noticeable.

    Congrats to any new shinies that I may of missed, and welcome to any new members that I may of missed.

      I have a question: I only have access to Gens 4 and 5. So do I only randomize between those two?

      Use 4 and 5 instead of 1 though 5.

        I'm having crap luck with shinies atm. I've done may be about 16000+ REs yet (for both events) and still nothing. Heck, at this point I don't even care if I get a shiny tauros or miltank (2 of my list of worst shinies)....

            Guess what guys, I got another shiny, it doesn't count towards the contest because I was having a break from it, I'm up to 2000 RE's btw. And so on the 10 hour flight I decided to hunt for a specific Pokemon, and 476 encounters in...

            Spoiler:






            Back to the contest hunt. :D

            The majority of the staff here has agree that ROM shinies will be allowed in the club.

            Just so you all know.

            Congrats on the Psyduck, Retro! :D

              I would like to participate!

              My results were Gen 4 Route 229, so I have a chance of finding a shiny Gloom, Weepinbell, Illumise, Roselia, Oddish, Bellsprout, Scyther, or Volbeat, plus Ledian in the morning and Ariados at night. Quite a lot of options here, and it's not that bad of a set.

              OH MY GOD!!! :D

              So, I was hunting in Altering Cave in my Fire Red for a Shiny Shuckle after just 145 encounters I found a Shiny Shuckle!!! And I could it in a Dive Ball, which just makes me happy. <3

              It has a horrible nature, which is Rash, but it's a shiny! <3

              Here's a picture:



              I was recording the entire thing too using Hypercam, so I showed that I wasn't using hacks or anything. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFSODfjsdiojosjdg

              So excited. <3

              I have to convert the video to MP4 then upload it, but it's completely live.

              Great job Lando! That shiny is cool! As for me well, I've been in a 2 month drought. I still haven't started SRing for Snivy again, because i havent had time to do so. Good luck to everyone in the contest and their hunts.

              Thank you! :D

              Here is the video of the encounter.



              Here is the video of me catching it in Pal Park. When I transfer it to White I will take pictures of all the stats (which you can see in the first video to confirm they are the same Pokemon.)



              Here are the pictures:

              Profile page
              Profile page
              Battle

              I nicknamed it Shuckle instead of SHUCKLE because I hate when the names are all capital letters.

                I've decided to create a signature to display all my latest shinies. it's a little basic, but oh well, it'll do.
                next up, I'm going to try my first soft reset method, and try and get a shiny totodile on emerald. I think I've almost finished the hoenn dex on it anyway, so I'll get started just as soon as I do.

                I like your signature! :D

                R.K 9 updating his signature made me want to do it too, so I did. :3 If you hover over the color tabs at the top, you can see what each color means.

                My next hunt will be Mewtwo. :3 Saved in front of him now, I have a Scizor with False Swipe and a high level Blissey so I can catch him easily (compared to normally).

                Now 20000 REs without a shiny! Hurray!!!

                I'm going to take a bit of break from all this. I've been grinding too much >.> BTW where can you get those signatures where it lists all of your shinies and methods you used to get them?

                  I made mine myself, and it didn't take too long to scratch up.
                  hope you find your shiny eventually!

                  I've completed the pokedex on emerald, so it's about time to start soft resetting for my shiny totodile. wish me luck. :D

                  Definitely joining. I've been trying to get into shiny hunting this week, and I'm hunting a Swablu through MM. Currently at 78 tries. I also have a Tyranitar that I caught completely at random a few months ago. :D

                    Of course it's possible. It's 1/8192 chance for any non-event pokemon.

                      ah that's good then, because I've already done 400 soft resets over the last few hours including breaks.

                        Oh my god, can you please explain how exactly you transfered a shiny from a rom to Black/White? I have a shiny Swellow that I would LOVE to have.

                          Currently no luck on my Cobalion hunt so i decided to take a break from that and practice chaining in Platinum (horrible at it lol)

                          And Landorus i believe you are correct and don't Ruby and Sapphire convert to the same RNG status as Emerald after their internal battery dies?

                          Yes it does. Also a small note, you can still RE for shinies with a broken RNG, I don't believe it affects it..if it does it's not that bad.
