    Thanks for the help Keruso, and I think you shouldn't release, it doesn't matter how you obtained them (except hacking, now thats wrong!), you should always be proud of them! Oh and my second question was going to be if a shiny was bred from the masuda method, what nationality would it be? I heard it is the females nationality as that is what pokemon it becomes, but I just want to be sure so I can stock up on females that want to bred after I try to obtain a foreign ditto, sorry it wasn't in the last post, I must have thought I typed it but I actually haldn't ( I do that a lot :/ )

      Since the egg is generated in your game, the nationality is that of your game. If the egg was generated in another language game and then transfered to your language game the egg will be of the other language, not yours since it was generated in other's language game.

        The weekly hunt is one of my quests!! I'll probably go for a Ghost-type sometime this week. I have 5 of 15 so far, so I'm a third of the way there!

When you defeat or capture a Pokémon you have discovered with the PokéRadar, the chain begins and you need to follow the chain to other grass tiles to continue the chain. These chains are broken when a different Pokémon appears or you encounter a Wild Pokémon outside of the set grass tiles so it is recommended that you use Repel or other Wild Pokémon prevention techniques. Shiny Pokémon are easily findable with the PokéRadar. If you have found a Shiny Pokémon with the PokéRadar, the grass will shine as opposed to shaking. With chaining, you have the ability to increase the likelihood of finding a Shiny Pokémon. This is done by having a prolonged chain on the PokéRadar. The chances increase up until the 40th Pokémon in the chain. This is calculated with the following formula;

        Chance = (14747 - 40*ChainNumber)/2621440(41-ChainNumber)

        After each use of the PokéRadar, it requires recharging. This is done by walking 50 steps.
        (From http://www.serebii.net/games/shiny.shtml )

        Good luck to everyone on your hunts!

            200 Golett/Druddigon/Mienfoo.

            I've decided to go for Golett for the weekly hunt, and I'm hunting Druddigon and Mienfoo along with him by Axiom 22. Druddigon looks pretty cool and Golurk is lights-out awesome, so I think I'm going to stick with this hunt as the next leg of my Ghost hunt.

            This is the first time I'm trying a Synchronizer, and I've hatched a bunch of Munna with different natures for future hunts, too. If I manage to get a shiny Adamant Golurk, I'm definitely using him in some battles!

            So does my Charmander count for Begin The Journey and The Shiny Master, or do I have to do another for one of them? I decided that my next hunt will be done in conjunction with my Slow Learner Challenge (see below). I will leave my game on constantly in the hope that I naturally hit the right seed during normal game play for The Shiny Hunter. When I get there, I will also go for a shiny Ho-Oh to fulfill The Shiny Legend.

              To G-Moeney: you can use a KOed pokemon with synchronize in front of the party, that will allow you to fight with the next pokemon and keep synchronize effect of encountering a pokemon with the same nature. Maybe you already knew it but reminding doesn't hurt, and probably this tip may be helpful for synchronizers that want to try it.

              To NecrumWarrior: Congrats on charmander, and nice sp attack too. For the challenges is one pokemon per challenge, you can choose in which challenge you want your pokemon to be in, but can't be both. A different story would be if it counts for two different quests or events.

                  Chr. Draco is right about the yearly quest, NecrumWarrior. Each shiny only counts for one portion of the quest, but if it fulfills multiple portions, you get to pick the one for which it counts. So, for example, you now have to option to count Charmander as your egg and SR a Turtwig, or you could count Charmander as your starter and hatch an Absol. You have quite a bit of freedom now. :cer_smile:

                  Thanks! It's good to know that I don't have to train the level 1 Munna to the point where their level is high enough for me to run.

                  I want to do a soft reset starter, but I don't have any games that I can start over. This is quite the conundrum since I really don't feel like going for another egg yet. Maybe later in the year. For now, I'll work on Shiny Hunter.

                  Scratch that, I'll do shiny starter when I get White 2!

                    Hello!

                    I'd really like to join the Shiny Hunters Club. :-)

                    Hello, haven't been here in a while! I have a new shiny!

                    So I was grinding on route 209 in Sinnoh, when all of a sudden...

                    appeared! I would've preferred anything else on that route lol, but I'm very happy to have a new shiny! Her name is Anya level 17, bashful nature with simple. Yay!

                      Since deino eggs take forever to hatch, i'm going to start hunting for a shiny trapinch. I always loved flygons and a shiny one will be awesome. Hopefully I won't give up.

                        To NecrumWarrior: Maybe you can target dragons or maybe a legendary, sometimes is good changing between methods while hunting.

                        To Miracle: welcome miracle and nice shinies and targets.

                        To GolurkIsDaBomb: Congrats on Bibarel. Route 209 is one of my favorite routes.

                        To Element0: Flygons have an interesting combination of colors, it's also an interesting target.

                              Congratulations GolurkisDaBomb and ArceusWhisper - they're both pretty awesome shinies ;3

                              I also bear some intresting news:

                              Spoiler:

                              A new shiny! A Masuda Method Shiny Growlithe, after 54 eggs! I did NOT expect this! I was just hatching some eggs since I felt like doing some hunting, but I hadn't brought my Ruby with me round to the shop, and my DS and Diamond were already there. After less than 15 eggs today, this little guy hatched. I was just sitting with my mum, and I was like "Yeah, we're missing the clothes pegs. Wait, did you already- OH MY GAWD!" She was pretty confused xD


                              (By the way, I started shiny hunting on the 23rd of August 2011, but I missed my "birthday". Lol. Happy late birthday to me! (?)

                              EDIT: 10k Treecko SRs! Woot!

                              EDIT: 11111 Treecko SRs lol! Gotta love funny numbers!

                                The greatest form of control is when you think you're free when you're being fundamentally manipulated and dictated to. One form of dictatorship is being in a prison cell and you can see the bars and touch them. The other one is sitting in a prison cell but you can't see the bars but you think you're free.

                                So, is it possible to recieve the event Keldeo as a shiny? If so, would it count for the shiny legend? Either way, i'll probably be hunting one.

                                  Last night I was grinding my Lax Luxio so I could evolve it, and for some reason my favorite Pokémon decided to shine. It's Modest, coupled with Pokérus.

                                    if it's not specifically stated that it is shiny, then no, it is not going to be Shiny

                                    Lorenzo, you never stated what shiny you got. not all of us know what your favorite Pokemon is

                                    Well that's disappointing, but enlightening. Thank you for telling me before I made a horrible mistake.

                                        I haven't been active in shiny hunting recently, but I just had to reply when I saw this.
