    Congratulations to Razer302 for winning the SHC's first ever chaining contest!! Not only did he get the highest chain with 44, but he also go the most shinies from it with 3 Buizel!!

    Razer has risen above and beyond, proving to be the one champion worthy enough of being crowned with both chaining titles!! In recognition of such an astonishing feat, he shall be rewarded with permission to declare himself "Greatest Chainer of the SHC" and display such glory in his usertitle under his name.

    However, new challengers arise to challenge his title! miloticfan54 has already broken his record with an astounding chain of 47, but unfortunately it was on May 2nd and therefore does not count for the contest. The next chaining contest is going to be a close one!

    But for this month, The May Monthly Quest!! To complete the Quest, one must obtain one Grass-type shiny and one Bug-type shiny to welcome spring. Yay warm weather!!

    The shinies must be obtained by yourself, and no chaining or hacking is allowed. Good luck! The contest lasts until midnight PDT on June 4th, 2012.

    Congratulations - you are the SHC chaining champion!! I don't think anyone doubts you, but the rules say that you need to post pictures of the pedestal with chaining records as well as your shinies from the chain. Sorry to make you go through the work of photographing them, but I think it's only fair.

    I use a calculator, start with my number of encounters (originally 0), and then enter ANS + 1. Then I just hit enter after each encounter. If I'm dual hunting, I use the computer's calculator that comes free with Windows and do the same thing. With that one, you can either click the = button or hit Enter on your keyboard. When hatching eggs, I suppose that you would input ANS + 5 into the calculator and just hit it once every batch of hatchlings is released/deposited.

    Another way is to count by PP, although this requires your Pokemon to be at a high enough level where it can one-hit KO and its moves don't miss.

    Also, you could count by using the Surskit Method. This works when you're REing in an area where one Pokemon is significantly rare - for example, there is an area in R/S where Surskit appears, on average, once every 128 encounters. Just count the number of Surskit you see and you'll have a rough estimate that becomes increasingly accurate as your sample size increases.

      Sounds interesting, maybe I'll try this..

      The Gen V trainer card counts encounters?

      Congrats on all shinies everyone, especially TSE's Giratina, it took you so long xD

      Just saying hi, I haven't shiny hunted in weeks to be honest, I pretty much just RNG now. I'll probably start hunting again sometime.

          Ugh, warm weather. I prefer the cold.
          So about the contest. Do the shinies have to be caught from here on or do the ones we already have count? I already have a shiny Tangela in Crystal.

            Grass/bug type contest? I guess I'll have to step up my Snivy hunt... and maybe this will motivate me to start that Larvesta MM I've been dreaming of for awhile?

            Also, thanks for the advice G-Money, I assume you store the # of RE's as "s" or something on the calculator?

            I do have a much easier way of counting eggs though... since I store 360 at a time every time I know I've hatched 360 when I've cleared my PC. If something shines, I can just count how many eggs I've hatched since I always start in/use the same boxes to store eggs =)

              Yes! On the back, it tells you how many Pokemon you've encountered.

              The contest counts shinies caught during the month of May (2012!), so ones you already have don't count. Shinies caught in Crystal wouldn't count either - it's only from Advanced Gen onwards.

              So, the moral of the story is...go out and catch some more shinies!!!

              I actually keep the number of REs in a separate Notepad file. I'm sure you could do it with Microsoft Word or Excel if you wanted to, too; I just keep a running list of all my hunts, and just update them before I turn off the calculator. And then I copy/paste the updated ones to my posts here!

                Hey guys... I sorta got bored so I decided to do something 3 days before my departure...

                Spoiler:

                Yeah... My third attempt at chaining... And I managed to get it to 38 at first... But my game crashed when my dad accidentally put it in the bag... Frustrated, I stayed up 'till 12:19 am... My chain STILL refusing to go above 28... But that was when it happened...
                Spoiler:

                I had to restrain myself as everyone was sleeping... But after seeing that patch of grass glow at such a low chain of 15, I couldn't tell if I was lucky or just getting dizzy of lack of sleep... Of course, I always leave my camera beside my bed in case of emergencies so here it is! My third chained shiny... Although it didn't go above 40.... Ah well, careful nature... A shiny is a shiny... I am so bringing this to BW2...

                  Congrats on the Larvitar, miloticfan.

                  My Bulbasaur hunt has reached 300... I think. I just count it and memorize the number. I must say, this is lucky for the May quest, I'm already hunting a Grass type. This appears to be a bit unlucky, though, because it appears that I have to save the Charmander hunt for later. Shiny Caterpie looks pretty awesome, though, and I was going for that after Charmander.

                    Man only 26 more days till I'm free to post whenever. Anyway the only hunt that changed since last time is
                    Ho-oh - 6707 SR
                    I really want that one to shine =/
                    Congrats to TSE for shiny Giratina and to Miloticfan for Larvitar.

                      Congratulations! It looks as though razer has a fine competitor on his hands for the next competition....

                      My Bulbasaur hunt has reached 300... I think. I just count it and memorize the number. I must say, this is lucky for the May quest, I'm already hunting a Grass type. This appears to be a bit unlucky, though, because it appears that I have to save the Charmander hunt for later. Shiny Caterpie looks pretty awesome, though, and I was going for that after Charmander.
                      I hope you get your bulbie soon!

                      I really want that one to shine =/
                      Congrats to TSE for shiny Giratina and to Miloticfan for Larvitar.


                      SUMMER?!
                      O:
                      Thank you xD

                      Also, the whole calculator business...
                      Personally I set up my four calculators on the computer all next to eachother, since I hunt while watching youtube and stuff. I enter my previous number of SRs + 1, and keep hitting = for every new SR. When I'm done for the day, I put my new total into my shiny hunting notepad. My Ho-oh hunt looks kind of like this:

                      Shiny Ho-oh SRs:

                      200 // 600 // etc etc etc XP

                      My own hunts...

                      Nothin's changed since I last updated.
                      I know.
                      Skyrim caught me up ):
                      But I did manage to play through the Sevii Islands quests on LeafGreen and trade some Masterballs over, so I've done a huge number (2) Zapdos SRs now! Yay for new hunts! :D

                        Latios Master, I challenge you to a Litwick race. What do you say? You win and you get your long-awaited Litwick. I win and my shiny count increases by a large percentage.

                          Whoo... A few minutes left till my dreaded flight... Maybe I'll use this trip as an opportunity to hunt for shiny Larvesta. On a side note... Does hunting Paras count as two? As it is a Grass and Bug type...

                            I'm sorry to hear about Flaaffy, NeonTsuba. I wish you luck on your hunts.

                            Congrats on the shiny Magneton and Larvitar, miloticfan54!

                            I accept your challenge. Hopefully the third time will be the charm.

                            I think it has to be two Pokémon. Paras would count as one for either category.

                            I will hatch Cacnea and Yanma for the monthly hunt. I'll switch back to MMing for the month.

                            This week's random hunt is... Purrloin!

                              Phew... Throughout the day... I only managed to hatch about 200 Larvesta eggs... Larvesta takes quite some time to hatch... I seriously hope this isn't gonna be a long hunt again...

                              @Latios Master Good luck on your Litwick... You'll definitely get it this time!

                                Once again goodluck on the Litwick Latias! You'll possibly definitely get it this time! I also hope you win the race against Drat xD.

                                Milotic I've never MM myself so all MMing seems like it takes a monstrous amount of time to me but non the less good luck!

                                My hunts:
                                Eevee: Couple thousand SR
                                Snivy: 10000+ SR at this stage

                                Its getting frustrating.. I really just want to play pokemon black my god!

                                  @Dratizard: Good luck to you too.

                                  @CarefulWetPaint: It's Latios.

                                  Good luck on everyone's hunts!

                                    Day 2 for Larvesta and my time abroad... A recent goal has came up for me and I wanna see if I can acquire a shiny Larvesta before my flight on the fifth day... So far, I have hatched about 360 Larvesta, didn't bother to count after that...

                                    With all the time I have in the hotel, of course I'm forced to hunt... No Internet, no nothing... Just time and the DS...

                                    I have a habit of needing to watch something shine while hinting, but since there was no Internet, I had no YouTube... So I provided that with a small 30 min break from black to chain Flaaffy in Platinum... I obtained two shiny Flaaffy, at a chain of 58... Sadly, I cannot post an image as of now.

                                    Back to Larvesta then... Who will crack first? The Larvesta egg, me, or my DS's buttons...

                                    Not dead!

                                    I have been gone for around a month, but that was do to traveling and tons of school work. Didn't get a whole lot of hunting done...
                                    I'll still be active, but less so until summer.

                                    As for new/old hunts...
                                    Iron Island-Anything, but preferably onix/zubat families
                                    Shoal cave-Anything, but preferably snorunt(female)/zubat
                                    Slugma.

                                    Congrats to everyone on what must be the thousands of shinies claimed! :D

                                      Snivy: 10000+ SR at this stage

                                      Its getting frustrating.. I really just want to play pokemon black my god!
                                      I completely understand how you feel, my parents gave me Black for Christmas and I can't play it until a blue Snivy shows itself >.<

                                      Anyway, I've had no more luck since my last post. I'm slowing down my Pokemon Tower hunt to focus more on Snivy... I really want my Snivy/Piplup hunts to be over!

                                      AP tests are this week for me, and they were lucky for me last year (Lugia shone on the day of my AP English test!) so I'm hoping a nice little calculus-loving Piplup will shine for me tomorrow XD

                                      Good luck to everyone on their hunts!

                                        :O Jeez, it's been forever since I've been here. Anybody remember me? Page 742 was the last page I posted in.

                                        So, G-Money, I'd like to be re-added to the list, if I may.

                                        Anyway, I've decided to COMPLETELY restart my shiny quest. Starting with a month long hunt in Diamond...
                                        I won't be soft resetting cuz I'm using a 3DS to play. Soft resetting is a huge pain because of the button locations, so I'll be doing encounters.

                                        Good luck, guys.

                                          I haven't hunted since my last update. I know. ;0;
                                          However I'm buying a savegame adapter, which when it gets here in about two months (Oh, DealExtreme) I can have unlimited saves! So I plan to get to SRing Lugia in SS, working on getting the PokeRadar in Pt, and SR Snivy in Black. Good luck everyone!

                                              I'll take anything that gets me a shiny somehow as a good thing =P

                                              Also good luck miloticfan, if Larvestas take as long to hatch as Deinos or Larvitars (I believe that they do?) then I feel your pain >.< After it shines you should go after something that hatches quickly to make up for it =)

                                                Oh hey there. I'm a shiny hunter myself, and although I'm not currently hunting, I'd be happy to join this club.
                                                I have two shinies: A shiny Hoothoot in Soul Silver, and a shiny Litwick in White, both random.
