    There's less than a week left for the chaining contest, and NeonTsuba is currently in first place with...

    *drumroll*

    ...two shinies from a chain! If you think you can beat that, get chaining!

    I haven't formally looked at the results yet, but as far as I can recall, no one has submitted a highest chain yet. So if you can get a chain of 1, you'll be able to win part of the contest! :cer_laugh:
    Good luck!

    Chaining contest = apparently not the best idea.

    I've still been playing Kid Icarus Uprising heavily. I think I may stop shiny hunting until I finish it. :cer_wink:

      Wow no one doing chaining. Looks like as a veteran chainer I need to get in on this. Will try to win both ;p

      Pick a shiny for me to chain from Diamond and I will get one for the contest.

      Spiritomb on hold whilst I chain.

      Hi joining c: I own tonnes of shinies but these are all traded, chained or from RNG, so it's about time to get some proper ones! SS keeps telling me how great it is and that I should hunt, so here I am!

      Buizel! T'was my first ever chain breed <3

      So yeah, started my first hunt a week or so ago. It's not been going very fast (since I'm incredibly lazy) but I'm doing REs in Pinwheel Forest. Aiming for a shiny Sewaddle but I wouldn't be too upset if I get a more common Pokemon instead. At just over 400 REs so far (I count using PP, there's probably a quicker way of doing it but at least I can train at the same time :p) and I'm aiming to do 100 or so a day, but judging by what G-Money said, it takes roughly 8,000 REs on average to get a shiny... -cries- Best get back to it then! c:

        I do prefer Squirtle to Charmander and Bulbasaur but I like all of them a lot, and I intend to hunt for them both later... and I am definitely an Eevee fan (I'm guessing you are too =P). I especially love Glaceon, Espeon, and Leafeon... I have a shiny Leafeon that I got off the GTS but I want one of my own, which is why I'm hunting for another Eevee.

        Anway, is that 26847 SR's?! That's a lot =O Are you trying to get to 50000 SR's for something?
        Haha, I wonder if I should invest in a SoulSilver of my own?!
        I know how you feel XP (Squirtle's the only time my favourite starter wasn't a Grass type!)
        Eevee! xD
        I got a shiny Leafeon off of the GTS too XP My amazing eyes were looking through Leafeons, and then I was like...
        "Waitwut?!"

        It is! That's over four hunts, each at a different spot - one 9k, two 6k and one 3k! Of course there are the hundreds apart from the thousands that go into the final count... But I'm too lazy to fetch them!

        You are truly insane. In fact, I feel threatened by your attempted usurpation of my title as the most insane shiny hunter and challenge you on your quest!!! *points finger*
        Well... uh... I'm taking that as a compliment, so thanks! XD

        To so much as think I could threaten G-Money must be in some extreme of insane-ness!
        I accept the challenge!!!

        That's spread out over 12 hunts, though, so it's much less impressive than yours. This is a really twisted, inverted method of shiny hunting, but it might just be insane enough to work! We'll see who has the highest number of encounters/SRs/eggs without getting a shiny! And if you get a shiny, you lose all your work for that hunt and the number gets reset to 0!!

        Although if you want to reset all hunts entirely every time you get a shiny, my number goes way down to like 7,000, "lol." Most of those hunts were started before my last shiny, haha.

        I hope you...lose this competition? (That's a way of saying good luck getting a shiny...I think. :cer_confused
        Wow! Surprising how close we are in numbers! xD

        What a challenge! This method might just be insane enough, as you put it! Watch as the shiny gods give me a shiny tonight just so they can laugh in my face...
        Mine would go down to about 19k
        I think we'd better stick with the first method... Unless you seriously want to mess with my sanity! (Big numbers are the only hope in Shiny Hunting! :Cer_Giggle: )

        I certainly hope you too... lose... this competition! May bad luck rain down!..?

        Also as for the Eevee I want.. 3 or so months of sring for that and no luck as well. And I saw people wanting to give up.
        I assume I'm well over 10k Sr's since I've been going for them for so long.

        WHERES YOUR COMMITMENT!?!

        Also to you giver uppers, look at TSE over 30k encounters by now I'm sure. Now that is COMMITMENT!
        I definitely believe you deserve a shiny soon indeed!

        -Edit-

        Rykerr1; :O much respect, much respect indeed. Everyone, a champion is among us!
        I'm being looked upon!
        A day I never thought would come!

        XD Thank you! Just take back your comment so I can beat G-Money.... xD No, thank you very much! I know that you need a shiny a lot, and so I hope those evil Gods smile down at you!

        sorry about the flash. my phone had to be reset because my battery wouldnt stay charged due to an upgrade, so EVERYTHING on my phone had to be replaced. i've lost all my apps and have found some of them.

        Also, BIRTHDAY SHINY!!!! i was hoping this would happen, and it came close to the wire. yes, today is my birthday, i am probably the oldest member in here at 27. i had moved from my previous spot in SoulSilver because when i was playing some HeartGold, i was around the outside of the Safari Zone, and i encountered there for a while, and liked the Poke's in the area, so i moved here in SoulSilver. that was Sunday!! anyone else notice my last three shinies from this game were blue?



        i figured out how to remove the flash right after, lol



        say what?

        Isnt Rykerr from SHU? guess Zabi's on a ban spree again.........


        my next hunt area is to the left of Ecruteak. i was here before, and if i remember right, i either got a Meowth or a Raticate here
        Happy birthday shiny!
        (OMGZ MY FAVOURITE SHINY APART FROM EEVEE)
        I'm amazed at it's beauty!
        Congratulations - and hopefully you get some more shinies soon!

          I have a question. If you're searching for a specific shiny in the wild, do you count all of your encounters, or just the encounters with that specific Pokemon?

            No, Zabi isn't on a banning spree. SHU has been dying for a while now, and hopefully we'll pick up the refugees, haha.

            I count all of the encounters. It would take so much more energy to figure out what Pokemon it is you're facing and then having to think about whether you have to count it or not, haha. Also, it makes your number higher and would be helpful for things like beating TSE in the insanity challenge.

              Pretty much what G-Money said, SHU has been dead lately so I went searching for other places to chat.

              Also, congrats on the Girafarig =) One of the many shinies that I would like to hunt some day >.<

              So... I was making a new avatar and I found a really adorable picture of Mudkip. So while I was recoloring it (took me forever because I'm a GIMP noob) I was trying to think of what to put on the avatar, and I thought of "Merry Mudkip". That made me lol. Then I thought of "Sassy Swampert", which also makes me lol.

              My question for everyone is, Do you have any funny shinies?

              I ask because I have a shiny Sassy Swampert and I find him to be hilarious >.<

              Has anyone gotten any shinies in funny ways or does anyone have shinies with funny names/natures?

              Also, I'm going away until Tuesday, just so everyone knows that I didn't join just to ditch you all two days later =P

              That is all XD

                Buizel it is. I already have one but more won't hurt + wind farm is EASY to chain in.

                I love RNGing but I only go for flawless stats never shinys from RNG.

                I never understood how chaining worked so never bothered with it.. BUT YOU CAN CHAIN EEVEES?? OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG.

                Congratulations Keruso! You're just a champion at shiny hunting. Bows down.

                GOODLUCK TheShinyEevee, I really really hope you get a shiny very very VERY soon... :D

                Welcome Alex! I hope you get some legit shinies >.>

                @G-Money! Youll get spirit on 3993 I think. So hang in there!

                  That.. That..

                  That was the Poochyena that attacked Professor Birch. :'(

                  There is no story to tell here. Ruby got here last night, I opened it this morning
                  (dry battery), started playing, and bam, that shows. Of course, before I had gotten Pokeballs. I killed it in two hits

                  I'm currently playing through Ruby, when I get bored of that I'll head to Route 101 and try to reclaim it.

                  Other than that, nothing's happened since my last post, I plan to start hunting more though.

                  Good luck everyone!

                    There is no story to tell here. Ruby got here last night, I opened it this morning
                    (dry battery), started playing, and bam, that shows. Of course, before I had gotten Pokeballs. I killed it in two hits

                    I'm currently playing through Ruby, when I get bored of that I'll head to Route 101 and try to reclaim it.

                    Other than that, nothing's happened since my last post, I plan to start hunting more though.

                    Good luck everyone!
                    Oh no! The horror stories of shiny fails... I'm sorry about that... I wish you the best of luck in reclaiming it...

                      Chiny, my Unown. It's name makes it seem (somewhat) Chinese? But the name actually comes from C and Shiny Original, right?

                        Pretty much what G-Money said, SHU has been dead lately so I went searching for other places to chat.

                        Also, congrats on the Girafarig =) One of the many shinies that I would like to hunt some day >.<

                        So... I was making a new avatar and I found a really adorable picture of Mudkip. So while I was recoloring it (took me forever because I'm a GIMP noob) I was trying to think of what to put on the avatar, and I thought of "Merry Mudkip". That made me lol. Then I thought of "Sassy Swampert", which also makes me lol.

                        My question for everyone is, Do you have any funny shinies?

                        I ask because I have a shiny Sassy Swampert and I find him to be hilarious >.<

                        Has anyone gotten any shinies in funny ways or does anyone have shinies with funny names/natures?

                        Also, I'm going away until Tuesday, just so everyone knows that I didn't join just to ditch you all two days later =P

                        That is all XD
                        Haha, nice Swampert XD
                        Well.... No, not yet, really. D:

                        Good luck on Buizel (I don't know how much luck is really required since I'm sure you're a brilliant chains-man, but still.)

                        No way.
                        I'm so sorry buddy ): You weren't even SRing or anything? That must be horrible!
                        Hopefully the shiny gods will offer you a fast reclaim. ):

                        EDIT:

                        xD
                        Just hit (lolol) 10,000 Ho-oh SRs! :D

                        EDIT II:
                        So.
                        Ending today.
                        In total, I'm up to: 27,525
                        Today's been brilliant for hunting!
                        I reached:
                        4k Treecko,
                        7k Giratina, and more importantly:
                        10k Ho-oh!!! :D My first 5-digit hunt! Woop!

                        Hoping to reach 30k by the end of the weekend :3

                          Well current update on the Buizel hunt I am half way on my chain... only taken 30 minutes lol. But thought I would show my previous chains and my current record highest on Diamond with a lot of shinys gotten from it.

                          So if anyone wants to check that out the link is here.

                            Man I hate not being able to post as much as I would like too anyway...
                            My Hunts:
                            Ho-oh - 6K SRs
                            Axew - 50 Eggs <- this will probably stay like that until I get my route 18 shiny
                            Route 18 - 465 REs
                            Anyway I am gonna hunt Combee on HG as soon as I get Ho-oh cause I discovered their is a special tree just north of the Nugget Bridge that has 65% Combee and 35% Slakoth when you headbutt it. My plan is to get a male Cute Charmer and place in front. I just learned a few days ago that cute charm has an outside of battle effect and it makes the odds of finding a pokemon with the opposite gender as the cute charmer 66% regardless of gender ratios. So with the odds of finding a female in my favor I really can't wait to hunt combee.
                            EDIT: Oh I forgot to ask, is the general consensus that you CAN hunt on a Ruby (or Sapphire) with a dry battery, cause I want to hunt on Route 111, but if you can't hunt on a dry battery I don't want to waste my time hunting .

                              Wow! Made it before my self-imposed goal of making it before Saturday! I'm gonna take a break from hunting as I'm gonna be away for some time now...

                              (I hope the pic was posted correctly...)
                              Congratulations , looks great.

                              Also, BIRTHDAY SHINY!!!! i was hoping this would happen, and it came close to the wire. yes, today is my birthday, i am probably the oldest member in here at 27. i had moved from my previous spot in SoulSilver because when i was playing some HeartGold, i was around the outside of the Safari Zone, and i encountered there for a while, and liked the Poke's in the area, so i moved here in SoulSilver. that was Sunday!! anyone else notice my last three shinies from this game were blue?



                              i figured out how to remove the flash right after, lol



                              say what?

                              Isnt Rykerr from SHU? guess Zabi's on a ban spree again.........


                              my next hunt area is to the left of Ecruteak. i was here before, and if i remember right, i either got a Meowth or a Raticate here
                              Congratulations, girafarig is a good one.

                              There is no story to tell here. Ruby got here last night, I opened it this morning
                              (dry battery), started playing, and bam, that shows. Of course, before I had gotten Pokeballs. I killed it in two hits

                              I'm currently playing through Ruby, when I get bored of that I'll head to Route 101 and try to reclaim it.

                              Other than that, nothing's happened since my last post, I plan to start hunting more though.

                              Good luck everyone!
                              NO!!! UNCATCHABLE SHINY POOCHYENA ATTACKS AGAIN!!!!

                              I'm sorry SS, hope you get another soon, don't give up.


                              Ok, here it goes:

                              Shiny Cobalion stats.jpg

                              It appeared this morning; after my oshawott appeared I decided to give a try on the legendary musketeers, and it may be a coincidence that all the pokemon I have got recently all have blue color.

                              Cya later guys and happy hunting.

                                It appeared this morning; after my oshawott appeared I decided to give a try on the legendary musketeers, and it may be a coincidence that all the pokemon I have got recently all have blue color.

                                Cya later guys and happy hunting.
                                Congratulations to you! Another wonderful shiny for your collection!

                                And....
                                As it happens....
                                Another for mine too!!!


                                That's right; my chain of numbers is broken! Now I'm just waiting to see what number G gets to - but I've probably lost!
                                (G, since that's the 7k from this hunt, do I just minus 7k from my total or reset to 0 in our challenge? )

                                So, I'll put you out of your misery - I got Giratina!
                                I got hugely lucky and caught him on something like the 5th Dusk Ball, full health, paralysed. He's Quiet natured and I called him Avus Nasci (long story). It totalled in at 7318 SRs (or 28,610 if you include all of my SRs )
                                Spoiler:

                                It's there The video will be up later too. (Are we allowed to post videos here? Haha).
                                EDIT:
                                Counted...
                                1 Quick Ball,
                                5 Dusk Balls.
                                None shook at all apart from the one that caught it!

                                  Either way... I'm not at home right now... And since chaining is more of a fragile way of getting shinies... Maybe I might try doing so in Platinum for a vacation shiny...

                                      4077 Spiritomb. I'm back in the lead! :cer_laugh:

So while I was recoloring it (took me forever because I'm a GIMP noob) I was trying to think of what to put on the avatar, and I thought of "Merry Mudkip". That made me lol. Then I thought of "Sassy Swampert", which also makes me lol.

                                      My question for everyone is, Do you have any funny shinies?
                                      I love your avatar! It looks so colorful and happy.

                                      I don't really have any funny shinies, unfortunately. I did get my shiny Bulbasaur while walking down the stairs, though. I was literally hunting at every second of the day at the time, "lol."

                                      I also got my shiny Torchic while SRing for Mudkip and I forgot to move the cursor over, "lol." I looked down expecting a Mudkip to come out of the Pokeball and hoping it would be shiny, but a shiny Torchic came out instead!! I'll take a shiny when I can get one, "lol." :cer_laugh:

                                      I was really hoping I would, haha. Thanks for the optimistic prediction, though; maybe the shiny gods will take what they originally planned and average it with yours! Either way, your prediction brings down the total number of Spiritomb I'll need.

                                      The key is to figure out the number, put the hunt "on hold" when I'm one away from getting a shiny, and then start a new hunt to keep my number high enough to beat TSE...

                                      Tough question. I really don't know, but I don't like what I'm hearing. TSE told me that R/S post-battery death function like Emerald, wherein you get a certain set of characteristics, including shininess, after a certain amount of time from turning on the game. For example, you might have shiny frames at 1 hour 20 minutes 5 seconds, another at 3 hours 4 minutes 5 seconds, and another at 7 hours 7 minutes 7 seconds. This makes SRing impossible and REing frustrating, since if you encounter at a steady rate, you'll see the same exact Pokemon in each batch. But the likelihood is that you don't encounter at a steady rate (grass takes different times to throw Pokemon at you, you get distracted, you spend differing amounts of times running, etc.), so you'll see some of the same Pokemon and some different ones, giving you an inkling of hope but making the hunt less efficient than a 4th/5th Gen or FR/LG one. And if you're REing and encounter a Pokemon at 1 hour 20 minutes 4 seconds, you're trapped in the battle for at least another 3 seconds and have missed your shiny frame, and now you have to wait another 2 hours just for another chance. But you turn your game off and resume hunting on another day, but now you're just going through the same sets you saw before. It could be really frustrating and potentially take a long time.

                                      I hope I'm wrong with something in there. I want my shiny Nincada!!!! :cer_pissed:

                                      That's right; my chain of numbers is broken! Now I'm just waiting to see what number G gets to - but I've probably lost!
                                      (G, since that's the 7k from this hunt, do I just minus 7k from my total or reset to 0 in our challenge? )
                                      Congratulations!!!! This shiny has the double sweetness of being both good for you (because you get a shiny) and for me as well (because now I'm leading the race)!! Way to go!!

                                      Your whole number doesn't reset, just the Giratina one. So subtract ~7k from your total or just add up all your other hunts.

                                      So there are some tough decisions to make here and intricate strategies to forge. Do you push up Ho-oh's numbers and risk losing all 10k? Or do you start a new hunt so that if you get a shiny, the number won't be that big for you to lose and you'll still have the extra 10k?

                                      Spoiler:
                                      Of course, I'm just joking with all of this - don't let it influence your hunts!! GET SHINY HO-OH!! THIS CONTEST IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                      This is like the reverse of shiny hunting. We are probably angering the shiny gods, although you must've done something right to get that Giratina...

                                          Hello, there!!

                                          Yes, i did have Amphoros up front because i actually wanted Magnemite as my target, but today i had a swarm of Snubbull, so i moved my (fainted) Staryu back to the front to encounter them. i was reading up on a Serebii forum when i looked out of the corner of my eye and saw a different Magnemite, and sure enough, the sparkles rang out!!! I was also hoping for the Space Cow and Bull (Miltank and Tauros)



                                          i will be using him in the future (thats why i encounter sometimes). probably trade him over to B/W2 when they get released.

                                          im going to continue to encounter here for the rest of today (i started hunting at around 10am, my time. this came a few moments ago) i really do want a Snubbull. if nothing shows, then i'll move to my next area, which what i want next is Stantler (i got Girafarig (PALINDRONE!!!!) so why not?)

                                            Good luck with it!

                                            I love your avatar! It looks so colorful and happy.

                                            I don't really have any funny shinies, unfortunately. I did get my shiny Bulbasaur while walking down the stairs, though. I was literally hunting at every second of the day at the time, "lol."

                                            I also got my shiny Torchic while SRing for Mudkip and I forgot to move the cursor over, "lol." I looked down expecting a Mudkip to come out of the Pokeball and hoping it would be shiny, but a shiny Torchic came out instead!! I'll take a shiny when I can get one, "lol." :cer_laugh:



                                            I was really hoping I would, haha. Thanks for the optimistic prediction, though; maybe the shiny gods will take what they originally planned and average it with yours! Either way, your prediction brings down the total number of Spiritomb I'll need.

                                            The key is to figure out the number, put the hunt "on hold" when I'm one away from getting a shiny, and then start a new hunt to keep my number high enough to beat TSE...



                                            No!!!!!!!! The curse of the DUPE!

                                            Remain steadfast, ShinySearcher: this is a good omen!! You'll get your shiny soon! :cer_wink:



                                            Tough question. I really don't know, but I don't like what I'm hearing. TSE told me that R/S post-battery death function like Emerald, wherein you get a certain set of characteristics, including shininess, after a certain amount of time from turning on the game. For example, you might have shiny frames at 1 hour 20 minutes 5 seconds, another at 3 hours 4 minutes 5 seconds, and another at 7 hours 7 minutes 7 seconds. This makes SRing impossible and REing frustrating, since if you encounter at a steady rate, you'll see the same exact Pokemon in each batch. But the likelihood is that you don't encounter at a steady rate (grass takes different times to throw Pokemon at you, you get distracted, you spend differing amounts of times running, etc.), so you'll see some of the same Pokemon and some different ones, giving you an inkling of hope but making the hunt less efficient than a 4th/5th Gen or FR/LG one. And if you're REing and encounter a Pokemon at 1 hour 20 minutes 4 seconds, you're trapped in the battle for at least another 3 seconds and have missed your shiny frame, and now you have to wait another 2 hours just for another chance. But you turn your game off and resume hunting on another day, but now you're just going through the same sets you saw before. It could be really frustrating and potentially take a long time.

                                            I hope I'm wrong with something in there. I want my shiny Nincada!!!! :cer_pissed:



                                            Congrats!! You're on a shiny spree!!



                                            Congratulations!!!! This shiny has the double sweetness of being both good for you (because you get a shiny) and for me as well (because now I'm leading the race)!! Way to go!!

                                            Your whole number doesn't reset, just the Giratina one. So subtract ~7k from your total or just add up all your other hunts.

                                            So there are some tough decisions to make here and intricate strategies to forge. Do you push up Ho-oh's numbers and risk losing all 10k? Or do you start a new hunt so that if you get a shiny, the number won't be that big for you to lose and you'll still have the extra 10k?

                                            Spoiler:
                                            Of course, I'm just joking with all of this - don't let it influence your hunts!! GET SHINY HO-OH!! THIS CONTEST IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                            This is like the reverse of shiny hunting. We are probably angering the shiny gods, although you must've done something right to get that Giratina...
                                            Urf! You may be laughing now G! Not for long, my friend, no no!
                                            I did happen to just join an assassin faction in Skyrim...
                                            XD

                                            Haha, I hope I don't recieve a Shiny Torchic instead of a Shiny Treecko in that way.

                                            *Growls* I will be beating you again shortly...

                                            Thanks for the congrats I guess xD.
                                            I actually got pretty annoyed for a minute there - the shiny gods refuse to give me shinies apart from when I get a challenge to not get any!!

                                            I like quad-SRing, so I'm going to be trading another Masterball or three to my LeafGreen so I can start SRing for Zapdos, and then later on Moltres and Mewtwo.

                                            Currently standing at 2 shiny Buizel and a chain of 42. not my official submission. That will be after I get bored of chaining and restart on spiritomb

                                            Whats this other contest on SR btw... im curious lol
                                            Congrats! I love shiny Buizel ;D

                                            Me and G are racing (?) to have the highest number (of SRs, eggs, REs, RAs, whatever) without a shiny. It's only been going a few days but I just got knocked out over 7k xD

I was also hoping for the Space Cow and Bull (Miltank and Tauros)



                                            i will be using him in the future (thats why i encounter sometimes). probably trade him over to B/W2 when they get released.

                                            im going to continue to encounter here for the rest of today (i started hunting at around 10am, my time. this came a few moments ago) i really do want a Snubbull. if nothing shows, then i'll move to my next area, which what i want next is Stantler (i got Girafarig (PALINDRONE!!!!) so why not?)
                                            Congratulations! I hope you get even more shinies soon!

                                            Ending tonight at a considerably smaller 21,400.

                                                It appeared this morning; after my oshawott appeared I decided to give a try on the legendary musketeers, and it may be a coincidence that all the pokemon I have got recently all have blue color.

                                                Cya later guys and happy hunting.

                                                That's right; my chain of numbers is broken! Now I'm just waiting to see what number G gets to - but I've probably lost!
                                                (G, since that's the 7k from this hunt, do I just minus 7k from my total or reset to 0 in our challenge? )

                                                So, I'll put you out of your misery - I got Giratina!
                                                I got hugely lucky and caught him on something like the 5th Dusk Ball, full health, paralysed. He's Quiet natured and I called him Avus Nasci (long story). It totalled in at 7318 SRs (or 28,610 if you include all of my SRs )
