    Freedom! Hello welcome back my missing power because of storm.

    I admit no news on the shiny front, three days with no power to cause distractions... and of course I hadn't charged up my DS and couldn't even play that. *sighs*

    Welcome to new people, did we get any... I hope so.

    Congrats on every-ones new shinies... and on a side note, gah, that Joltic is so cute! *coughs*

    Going to toss in my opinion of the Shiny Charm on B2/W2, I agree that it takes a great deal of work to even get it onto your game (though if it were available on B/W then I'd have it on Black already) I will be getting the item (oh the pain of all that transferring again...augh) on one copy, and use it... I still haven't seen any shiny on the 5th gen games. I might finally get the Litwik once I have the Charm. Because really 100% chance of encounters... and still no shiny.

    Have a happy 4th to all who are celebrating!

    - - - LDD

    Shiny Litwik hunt OVER! (sorry don't own a camera)

    Hatched (thank you Matsuda method)

      Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans!

      Congrats on the shiny Joltik, Keruso!

      Congrats on the shiny Litwick, Lady Demoonica Darkmoon!

      Welcome to the club, midnightclub 324!

      I finally beat the Elite 4 (post story) on White after 700 hours of gameplay. It took me a long time to get around to it. I have three level 100 Pokémon on my team, so it was easy. As for my Pokédex, I only have two more Pokémon I plan on adding to it, hatching an Azurill and using a Thunderstone to get Eelektross. I have to clear space in the PC to MM again.

        Oh my god, I used to be in this club ages ago when dinosaurs walked the earth. Guess I should rejoin.

        I own no shinies but the Pidgey I found on a ROM whom I forgot to save the game with. I'm currently hunting Cobalion and Suicune, both whom have over 100 SR's.

        Shining charm looks awesome.

            Flying type hunt? I better finish up Suicune and get on to Articuno/Zapdos.

            [imghttp://oi45.tinypic.com/29vxlx0.jpg][/img]

            This is really cool. In Japan, they're making shiny plush of the Unova starters. Only 1000 of each will be made. The Snivy is so cute!

                I'm sorry that I haven't been active on here lately, but that's been because I haven't had any shinies. I'm happy to report that that has changed:



                I got a shiny Piplup in my Platinum game today after 10.5 MONTHS of SRing (I started this hunt in August 2011). Unbelievable, I'm still freaking out about this! He has a Bashful nature and I'm naming him Napoleon. This is officially my longest hunt ever!

                More pictures:
                Spoiler:



                I will be moving on to SR Giratina next.

                As for my other hunts, I'm at 6.5 months of SRing for Snivy in Black (hoping he'll take a hint to HURRY UP from Piplup), 1 month of SRing for Registeel in Sapphire, 1199 Ponyta eggs and 1192 Blitzle eggs in White, and about 3 months of REing in Pokemon Tower for my LeafGreen badge quest (though that is a low priority right now).

                Congrats on all of the shinies that have been posted since I was here last, and good luck to all of you on your hunts!

                  Napoleon is a gorgeous shiny : D Piplup is one of my favorite shinies, I actually plan to hunt for him once I get my planned hunts over with.

                  Planned hunts/In progress:

                    I have decided to take up shiny hunting. I currently own a shiny Ralts, a shiny Metang, and of course multiple shiny Gyarodos (But so does everyone else). I have never encountered a shiny myself, with the exception of Gyarodos, and have only obtained shinies through trade. I am currently attempting my first Masuda Method shiny buy breeding tons of Charmander. If any of you have any shiny hunting tips, they would be much appreciated. I have been extremely unlucky when it comes to shinies as I have played pokemon since 2nd gen came out and never encountered a single shiny, and I'm fed up with it. But I refuse to RNG abuse the game. It's cheap and destroys the value of shiny pokemon. Hence my new quest.

                    EDIT: I also have the event shiny dogs...

                        Congrats on the shiny Deino and Ho-oh, Ninjagon!

                        Congrats on the shiny Piplup, rykerr1!

                        Welcome to the club, NecrumWarrior and THEEEVEENATOR999!

                        The best tip I can give is... be patient! You may feel like a Pokémon will never shine after weeks of hunting, but don't give up. If a hunt is not going well, take a break or switch to something else for awhile. My Litwick hunt has lasted over a year (since April or May of last year) and I have taken many breaks and switched to many different hunts for awhile to keep things fresh. One hunt I switched to during the winter landed me a shiny Eevee.

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

                            It's great to see several new members join. It's been pretty dead in here this month.

                                Long time no see!

                                I haven't hunted since whenever I last replied. Strangely enough, I lose motivation most after I recieve a shiny. What kind of logic is that? I guess I like the big numbers :D

                                Anywho, I don't know when I'll be back into hunting. I'm working hard on RNG abuse (sorry) and EV training for a present for one of my friends

                                If I get back into hunting during my summer break (I break up this Friday :D) then I will be certain to regularly post again. Anyway, congrats on any shinies I've happened to miss, and good luck to hunters, new and old!

                                  Congrats on all new shinies yeh yeh. I haven't hunted since my last post either, I've been working a lot and have been replaying the Kingdom Hearts series because Dream Drop Distance comes out at the end of the month! I'm about to start hunting again though, just to try and get one shiny before DDD comes out, because once it's out that's the only thing I'm focusing on for quite some time!

                                    Hey everyone, I have another shiny to report!

                                    I got to Giratina Saturday night (currently at 960 ish SRs) and have been hunting it obsessively. However, today I felt bad that I've been neglecting Registeel this week so I decided to hunt that as well. 3 or 4 hours later, it shone!



                                    It has a Careful nature, which is perfect for it and makes up for Modest Regirock, though its IVs are only so-so. I named it Liberty =)

                                    I'll be going to Meteor Falls to level up my team in preparation for Rayquaza and to hunt Bagon. Hopefully I get one and not a Golbat.

                                    Congrats to Ninjagon on your Ho-Oh, and good luck to everyone on your hunts!

                                    Thanks guys, and thanks for the advice, it was good. I can sometimes be impatient so its good to have that virtue driven into my skull. I'm mostly using the lull before and after work to hunt since I don't really do anything else. I hope that shiny Charizard is worth it.

                                      I haven't been explicitly shiny hunting lately, but hopefully I'll end up with a shiny anyways.

                                      *Long, nonsensical rambling only peripherally related to shinies:*

                                      Spoiler:
                                      I recently decided to start making a competitive 5th gen team, so I started hatching Deino eggs to make a competitive Hydreigon. I wanted it to have Dark Pulse, but it's an egg move only and requires a 4th gen TM. I taught Dark Pulse to an Arbok in SS and sent it up, and then I caught a male and female Deino in Victory Road.

                                      After hatching for a while, I realized that the hatchlings didn't have Dark Pulse. Sure enough, the Arbok from SS was female, and TM egg moves are only passed down by males.

                                      *facepalm*

                                      So I found a male Arbok in Diamond and transferred it up, proceeding to hatch until I found a Modest female so I could Everstone for a 50% chance of passing down the nature. But since this Deino was a hatchling, it would level up rather rapidly in Day Care - to avoid paying exorbitant sums, I leveled it up to about 25.

                                      I then hatched several batches of 5 each (with Volcarona to Flame Body and Fly to Skyarrow Bridge) until I got a Mischievous one. I trained it to level 20 and checked Serebii's IV calculator, and it had a 31 in Sp. Attack! I spent about 5 hours on the Battle Subway to get the points for a Power Lens, but I finally got one so I could pass on Sp. Atk.

                                      After hatching a few more batches, I realized that the new hatchlings weren't getting Mischievous as much as I would expect. Could more than half of these randomly have 31 IVs in other stats?

                                      "lol," no. I forgot to factor in the EVs when calculating the parent's IV, and the mother's Mischievous was actually a 26, haha. I was passing down imperfect stats!! :cer_laugh:

                                      So I took off the Power Lens and hatched many more batches, until finally I had a couple more Mischievous ones. I trained them each to level 25 and checked the online IV calculator again, and I finally managed to get one with a perfect Sp. Attack stat. I used that to replace the father Arbok.

                                      Only after that did I learn that you can check for perfect IVs in the Battle Subway!! *facepalm* I started checking every new hatchling there, looking for one that was Modest and had another flawless stat in addition to Sp. Attack.

                                      I eventually found a female with flawless Speed, and another couple of hours in the Battle Subway got me the Power Anklet to guarantee a perfect Speed stat. Now I could guarantee eggs with two perfect IVs.

                                      ...or so I thought. It turns out that you can only pass down one stat with a Power Item, so after a few more batches I swapped the Power Anklet for the Everstone again.

                                      After a couple of days I got one with flawless HP. Since HP is less likely to pass down than Sp. Attack or Speed, I went through the Battle Subway again and managed to get the Power Weight. This took an incredible amount of time because I kept losing due to my not having EV-trained Pokemon, which is the reason I'm going through this whole process!! "lol" once I get my competitively viable Deino, I won't need the Battle Subway anymore for the Power Items.

                                      So now I had guaranteed flawless HP, a 33% chance of flawless Sp. Attack (one flawless parent), and a 33% chance of flawless Speed.

                                      I hatched maybe a hundred more eggs, but I noticed that the hatchlings didn't have Dark Pulse anymore. I had left the father in Day Care so long that it had overwritten the move!! "lol" so I had to take one of the flawed hatchlings that I kept, train it to level 25, and then hatch for the flawless HP again. I finally got it and kept replacing with better Deinos until I reached where I am now: a male with 31s in HP, Defense, and Sp. Attack and a female with 31s in HP, Sp. Attack, and Speed. HP is guaranteed to be flawless and there's a 50% chance of a Modest nature, with a 14% chance of flawless Defense, 33% chance of flawless Sp. Attack and a 20% chance for flawless Speed. I'm probably going to keep hatching until I get one with 4 flawlesses, although if it's not Modest I can put it in Day Care to improve my chances of getting a hatchling with flawlesses in 5 stats.

                                      What does all this have to do with shinies? Well, I haven't been counting eggs, but given all I've done there have probably been at least 500. My chances of getting an outstanding competitive Deino are pretty slim, so hopefully I'll get a shiny in the meantime!

                                      And if I do, it's guaranteed to have a 31 IV in HP!! :cer_laugh:


                                      *end of rambling*

                                      I know exactly how you feel - after I catch a shiny it's like I've accomplished a goal, and I sometimes sit back and get complacent for a while. But the will to hunt always comes back, and the shiny hunter eventually returns to the great passion.

                                      Other times, though, it just feeds my drive to hunt even more and I double my efforts based on the inspiration from the new shiny!!

Does it repeat frames or if I just constantly press B to skip history then mash A for the encounter will I be good? I don't want to do what some people did in Emerald by constantly trying to get a shiny with no such luck, so yeah...
                                      The clock in FR/LG is better than Emerald's, but it's still not set in real time. It's based upon certain events in-game, like steps taken (?) and last save. The consensus seems to be that it's safe to SR in FR/LG, but you should resave every 25-35 SRs to optimize results.

                                      Charizard is quite possibly the coolest-looking shiny ever, up there with Rayquaza and Metagross. Of course it's worth it!!

                                        Haven't been here in a while. Sort of got burned out on shiny hunting after not encountering anything in Viridian Forest for over 6100 encounters, but I think I'm ready to get back to it. I think I'm going to try and reclaim a bunch of the shinies I used to have, and route 10 in Leafgreen is a good place to start. I could either get my old shiny Voltorb back, or my old shiny spearow. I'd rather do this on FireRed because then I could also have a chance at getting an awesome Shiny Arbok, but I don't have FireRed anymore. Sandshrew would be fine too I guess. Hopefully I will actually come across something this time. : )

                                          Hi, I'd like to join! I've always been quite interested in shinies but have only very recently gotten seriously into shiny hunting, and just completed my first major "hunt" the other day - a shiny Growlithe using the Masuda Method, as a gift for my boyfriend's birthday later this month. I was actually quite lucky as I got a shiny after only about 120-150 eggs (didn't keep an exact count, haha)! I definitely intend to keep hunting because I really love shinies, and I've been lurking in this thread on and off for the past week or so I figured I might as well officially join. :)

                                            Glad to see I'm not the only one who "burned out" I haven't hunted in about a month but I picked back up today. I'm also glad to see this place picking back up I noticed this place was kinda empty.
                                            My Hunts
                                            Ho-oh - 9717 SRs
                                            Gulpin - 645 MMs
                                            Viridian Forest - 520 REs
                                            EDIT:

                                            OH YEAH!!!!! SHINY GULPIN AFTER 465 EGGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                                            I can't believe this I just picked back up hunting today. This is my third target for the yearly quest (The Masuda target)
                                            Not much else to say its pretty self explanatory it has bold nature fyi.
                                            I'm not sure what I want to do for the RE portion of the quest. I am SRing Ho-oh for the legendary part of it.

                                              Thanks, Ninjagon.

                                              Welcome back, TheShinyEevee and PekoponTAS!

                                              Congrats on the shiny Registeel, rykerr1!

                                              Good luck on Deino, G-Money!

                                              Welcome to the club, Kleinchen!

                                              I haven't hunted for awhile. My computer crashed a week ago, so I've been busy replacing stuff that was lost. Luckily my MM hunts were listed on my iPod, so I was able to type it up on the computer again, but it wasn't up-to-date. I can read my previous updates on here to figure out what the right numbers are.

                                                Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I was really busy a couple of months back and then when I started hunting again I wasn't quite so enthusiastic due to the Flaaffy incident. But hey, even a few eggs a day add up- Last night my Treecko finally hatched after 1547 eggs!
                                                I do have an idea for my next hunt, but there's still a lot of other stuff I haven't done in that game yet (or if I go with the target I'm thinking of, there's stuff I NEED to do) so I'll be getting some of that out of the way first.
