    To win, you must catch or hatch 2 green shinies. The shinies may have any amount of green, ranging from 0.1% of total body mass to being an icky green blob. *glances at shiny Tangela*




    Congrats!
    I will be doing this (hopefully)! As SS said, it's debatable whether Snivy is blue or green, but yeah xD I was also hunting Shiny Tangela too, so I might return to that if I get one of my SR targets (hopefully articuno) done soon.

    Congrats on all those new shinies everyone!

    2258 Snivy

    So I have changed my target from yanma to slugma, since I think a magcargo is what my team needs more... but I can't wait for that silver slug! Optimistically I would say I am at about... 50 eggs? maybe more?

    When i have my slug (presuming it is still march) I will join into that monthly contest. Two of my team members were going to be green (surprise surprise) so it sounds like fun!

    @TheShinyEevee I will hopefully be trying to get the blob of green vines known as tangela too (after slugma) wanna race?

      Good luck with the silver slug/purple snail, haha!

      Probably! I defintely will if you're still hunting it when I am, but I really don't know how long Snivy's gonna take, and I'm gonna try to get Articuno on the same LG file first, hopefully. So it may not be March when I hunt it at all, unless someone spills luck on me!
      THanks for the offer, though! Hopefully I can :D

            Well, quick update, I was able to download an HG Kyogre off PokeCheck, so I'm now SRing Razquaza just to troll TSE, who can't get WiFi to her game. So, 20 Rayquaza. Was also able to get a bit more in on my other hunts, 464 Snivy in Black, 185 Eevee in Platinum, and my SoulSilver hunts are kind of all over the place, Pikachu's at 1262, also doing Rayquaza as mentioned above, when I'm done both I might reset it and do starters, or I might do the Union cave Lapras first, I don't know. Bye everyone, and hope this wasn't a junk post!

                  Nothing to note here, other than a few hours of power-outage, and nearly 24 hours of no phone service, meaning for me no internet service.

                    2345 Snivy! Hehehe funny number :D
                    And also, I need to train my shiny-catching-smeargle, so I decided to throw it in the daycare with my Japanese Ditto while I do that. Maybe a Shiny Smeargle soon? *Hopeful*

                      1670 - Charmander
                      Just dropping by to ask a quick question...
                      Does fishing count for the Encounter portion of the Yearly Shiny Quest? If it does I will fish on (Unova) Route 18 for finneon or horsea (or chinchou but it only has a 1% encounter rate) either way i would be happy with any of them, but I would be most happy with Charmander.
                      Anyway good luck to everybody on their respective hunts

                          Shiny Snivy! I named him Link, after all, and I might change it at some point. I don't know.
                          He was in the 2409th egg... I want to say finally but I know this wasn't a really huge hunt haha! I guess this means I win... :D

                          NOW! Let the Soft Resetting begin!!!

                            1262 Pikachu.
                            467 Snivy.
                            77 Rayquaza.

                            I have just finished training my shiny catcher in 4th gen.
                            He's a LV. 50 as of current Parasect with False Swipe, Spore, Stun Spore, and a last move that's still open.
                            I'm using him for Rayquaza and Pikachu, and plan to do Giratina with him too once I get that far.

                              Congrats on the shiny Snivy, TheShinyEevee! That was a long hunt.

                              I'm sorry to hear about the shiny Electrode, HaloSonic. The first shiny I ever encountered was a Geodude that Selfdestructed, so I know the feeling.

                              I've decided to hatch Druddigon and Marill for the monthly contest. I will suspend my Sandile hunt when I reach 200 (currently at 168), and skip Riolu. Several months ago I bred a Marill with Aqua Jet and a Totodile with Ice Punch and Aqua Jet on SoulSilver and transferred them over to White with the plan to MM them someday. I'm finally getting around to Marill, and I'll probably spend some time MMing Totodile too. I plan on breeding Fire Fang and Sucker Punch on Druddigon.

                                  Congratulations on the magby and the snivy! Sorry about the electrode, that stinks!
                                  So an update.
                                  Basically I have just been hatching slugma (I'm hatching them right now as we speak) and then meandering around the bug catching contest whenever it occurs...
                                  I think after slugma and tangela, I will go for a shiny pinsir. It's slowly growing on me.
                                  I'd like to think I have hatched a little over 500 slugma eggs, since I can breed/hatch around thirty in an hour, its been around four days...
                                  Unfortunately, MMing is not growing on me. I think I prefer SRing and REing since they feel like they go faster and i don't have to pay as much attention to the game... MMing feels like I'm stuck in traffic, while REing/SRing feels like I'm driving on the highway, even if it takes longer haha.
                                  Good luck to everyone!

                                    I think I'll definitely give the March Contest a try. Even though shiny Caterpie is yellow, would it count for the contest if I evolve it into a Butterfree?

                                    If I manage to hatch the Caterpie, I'll go back to my friend's Eevee and hatch in turbo mode so I can then hatch either Teddiursa or Chansey afterwards. *green shinies ftw*

                                    Darn it G-Money, I wish I could clone myself. xD!

                                      2345 Eevee would like to thank TSE for showing G-Money a funny number! He had never thought of that before. :cer_laugh:

                                      Yes! I probably should've mentioned that in the post about the Quest. I'll edit that into posts. For example, Eevee counts for the contest, but only if you evolve it into Espeon, Leafeon, or Jolteon (??).

I am going to do this even if for some reason it is not acceptable, since it is for my private quest and not an official one, but I for one believe Darkrai and Shaymin should be accepted, especially since tweaking is not possible in Platinum.

                                      ...

                                      there is no way to edit a quote into a post.
                                      The reason Shaymin and Darkrai aren't counted for club contests when gotten by teleporting with AR is because it's possible to get them legally on mainstream games. But we'll still wish you good luck!

                                      Also, you can edit a quote into a post! Go quote the post and do whatever you do as if you were making a new post, but before hitting the post button, copy everything, go back to your post, edit, and paste it at the end!

                                      Congrats!! That's an insanely, ridiculously long hunt: the odds for the Odd Egg are 1/7!! 105 is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy over average (1500%!!)! To put that in perspective, you did the equivalent of 122,880 SRs/REs!!

                                      Also, I never mentioned that the contests don't include 2nd gen games, so your hunting in Crystal is fine through the end of March. I'll make sure to put it in the rules for next contest, but because I forgot to, you get to hunt there for the rest of the month.

                                      "lol" I know how you feel, but with 3rd gen vs. 5th gen. I was dual hunting Eevee and Snivy all last night, and I could do about 4 Eevee for each Snivy!

                                            Im current SRing for an eevee on HG so I can get a shiny Umbreon <3
                                            Also doing 150 encounters on every route and current up to about 2000 encounters through this and about 1000 SRs on eevee, So frustrated Ive been starting to nickname them "Shine" or "Shiny"

                                            So, I have started a new hunt..or should I say a new series of hunts. I just finished playing through Ruby with only Sceptile (and got to 100 before the E4 so everyone was annihalated.)

                                            Anyways, my goal is to reclaim all my lost shinies since many of my shinies lost were actually in Ruby or are available in Ruby.

                                            Currently I am hunting Wobbeffet (which was originally found in Emerald's Safari Zone and it fled) and I am already 1026 encounters in. The list of my lost shinies are:

                                            Wurmple - Found in Ruby before getting PokeDex.
                                            Wurmple - Found in Ruby, started a new game and lost it.
                                            Voltorb - Same as above.
                                            Golbat - Same as above (although I think I am going to skip this one since I already have a Shiny Golbat and Crobat.)
                                            Regirock - Found in Ruby, didn't realize it was shiny until I battled a normal one.
                                            Tentacool - Found in HG or SS, lost save file.
                                            Roselia - Found in Platinum, started a new game and lost it.
                                            (now for the ones not able to be hunted in Ruby)
                                            Shellos East - Found in Platinum, started a new game and lost it.
                                            Timburr - That's right, during my 150 encounters on every route I found a shiny Timburr and didn't realize until I clicked run. ;_;
