    Hiya! I'm Leaf, and I've recently gotten into hunting shinies. Except, I don't exactly own any shinies... XD

    So...I was hoping I could join. XD I'm currently trying to get a shiny Dusclops.

      Well, apparently... since I'm abroad right now... I've been IV breeding, but I recently decided to try hunting for a second REd shiny... Well, it's gonna take a while deciding which route has shinies that are easy to differentiate from their normal ones, but currently, I'm wondering if there is a route eith Seviper that would give me luck... Anyways, a late Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to y'all... Happy hunting!

      Congrats to all the recent shiny catches, especially SRed ones!

        I'm back after a long time of absence. I had given up on shiny hunting for a while, but I'm going to get back into it. Still after a shiny in Viridian Forest, but I don't remember how many encounters I had done at that point, and I've started a new game since then, so I guess I'll just start over. Here's hoping I get my shiny Beedrill. (Though Caterpie would be good too)

          Well, I gave up on Dusclops, and tried getting shiny Eevee from Bebe - AND I GOT IT!!! I'm sooo happy! :D :D :D
          This is my first shiny to ever get intentionally! And it only took me 6 hours straight of soft resetting, LOL. But it was worth it. Shiny Vaporeon, here I come!

          Shinies caught so far:
          -(Eevee, soon to be Vaporeon)-
          Shinies I'm currently hunting:

              Hi! I'm Arlo.
              I love shinies, but only caught two. The Red Gyarados everyone has, and a Shiny Raticate.

              I want a Shiny Vaporeon, Snivy and Joltik, though!

              That's a great idea. I've wanted a shiny Eevee for a while, but the eggs just take too long to hatch. I'm going to try that out. (:

              ~
              My current hunts are on hold. I just found out that the Treecko could show up shiny while hatching but still be normal afterward. T: I'm also not quite as excited to hunt, now that I literally have every shiny Pokemon from Gen III-I along with quite a few from Gen IV.

                @IceMan: Wow, a shiny Miltank? I've been trying to get my hands on one of those, but they're so rare...did you use the Masuda Method?

                @Arlo: Welcome! And yeah, I never really considered my shiny Gyarados too special either. XD But hey, it's still fun to have around. So, you're hunting Vaporeon, same as I was? Good luck!

                Hint: If you own Diamond/Pearl/or Platinum, you can soft-reset (if you don't know what soft-resetting is, it's just pressing the trigger things on the DS and the start/select buttons all at once) to get a shiny Eevee. However, it might take a while, so you may have to be patient...good luck! :D

                @Slender: Yup, I got tired of having Bibarel break my chains, so I just decided to go after Eevee. XD What exactly do you mean, "still be normal afterwards"?

                  @Wandering~Leaf - Welcome to the club! Congrats on the Eevee; 6 hours?! What a nice short first hunt, lol! Good luck on Houndour!

                  @Peko - Welcome back to the club, long time no see eh? Good luck with that, maybe it'll be nice this time..

                  @Arlo - Welcome to the club! :D

                  @Slender - Eh? I honestly have never heard of a shiny becoming non shiny outside of colosseum/xd, where did ya hear that?

                  Mainly posting to say that I haven't done shiny cards in a while but I'm excited for them again! So if anyone wants one (even though I'm out of practice lol) feel free to shoot me a VM!
                  Oh yeah, I ordered a Soulsilver so that eventually I can SR Groudon on there, Kyogre on my HG, and then put both in one game and SR Rayquaza! Might also restart my HG and dual hunt a shiny starter.... We'll see!

                    @Eevee: A Shiny card? Do you mean that box with the shinies in your signature?

                      Somehow I had never looked up what Shiny Bulbasaur looked like. I think I'm going to start over on my leafgreen and try to get it. (I wasn't very far in my file anyways). If I somehow manage to get it within the next couple days, I'm just going to count it towards the 2013 yearly quest since it's so close. XD It's odd how in all the times I've started a new game on these games, I've never found a shiny starter. : (

                        Hiya, and welcome! :D So, you're hunting shiny Bulbasaur? It's adorable in my opinion, I plan on getting it soon, once I defeat Red. XD Good luck on your hunt!

                          Thanks! I currently only have LeafGreen, Ruby and Sapphire, (both with functional clocks) so my odds of finding a shiny are slimmer than most on here. Heck, I can't even speed up egg hatching since this is pre-Emerald. XD Currently only at 50 soft resets for Bulbasaur. I think I'm going to go a bit slower than I was the first time I tried shiny hunting. ;

                            I don't even know how many SR's I did to get Eevee. XD Even though I have Platinum, I can't chain pokemon at all. XD I'm going to try the Masuda Method soon, though. Anyways, I hope you get Bulbasaur soon!


                            Note: I've disbanded my hunt for Houndour, for now (considering my chaining skills are so bad, I can't even chain Starly XD). As of now though, I am now hunting these Pokemon:





                            Wish me luck!

                                See, from Gen III onward, Pokemon shininess is determined by your Trainer ID, a hidden ID, and the nature of the Pokemon. The Pokemon isn't set as "your" Pokemon until after you watch the hatching animation. So it could show as shiny during the animation, but afterward it becomes a normal one, once you're its trainer.

                                Now I need to get my national dex for that Eevee.

                                  @Iceman: How are you catching so many so fast?

                                  @Slender: Hah, good luck. XD It might take a while until it becomes shiny...but I think you already know that. ;P

                                    I assume you're RNGing them? Because I don't think it's possible to get that many non-hacked shiny Pokemon that quickly. I've seen people who have played Pokemon since it came out and they don't have any shinies. T:

                                    Haha, yeah, I know it could be a while. But I don't even have my national dex yet, so I'll do it another time. Though when SRing for a shiny starter, I did it in half of an hour once. That was pretty awesome.

                                      Bah. At 274 soft resets for Torchic I found the shiny Poochyena. I tried to take a picture, but it turned out really blurry. Oh well, it's actually encouraging knowing that I've at least seen a shiny. I killed it out of spite though. XD

                                              Happy New Year!

                                              You know what this means? It's time for the 2013 Yearly Quest!

                                              As we all know, the world ended on December 21st, 2012, causing a zombie apocalypse. Millions of people must survive to beat the zombies, generations must band together...that's right, you need to bond with many generations of shinies!

                                              Objectives:

                                              1) Obtain a 1st gen shiny
                                              2) Obtain a 2nd gen shiny
                                              3) Obtain a 3rd gen shiny
                                              4) Obtain a 4th gen shiny
                                              5) Obtain a 5th gen shiny
                                              6) Complete any two Monthly Quests throughout the 2013 year

                                              These can be done in any order. The shinies must be obtained by yourself, and no chaining or hacking is allowed. Have fun!

                                              The standard weighting is in place: it's fine if you use the shiny charm for your 5th gen shiny, but you'll have to get 3 of them!

                                              The January Monthly Quest!!

                                              It's time for the New Year! As we welcome the baby New Year for 2013, may we welcome him with baby shiny Pokemon!

                                              Capture any 2 shiny baby Pokemon! This includes Magby, Elekid, Bonsly, etc., as well as Togepi!

                                              The contest lasts until midnight EST on February 1st, 2013.

                                              --------------------------------------

                                              I haven't posted in nearly a month, so I'm just going to give a general congrats to everyone who got shinies and welcome all the new members to the club! May 2013 yield many more shinies!

                                              Good thing we don't have anyone who posts blurry pictures in this club...that would just be terrible! (Although it's been so long since I've gotten a shiny, most people probably won't get the joke, "lol!")

                                              Keep hunting and may the shiny Poochyena be a blessing of good things to come!

                                              i am dieing to get a heracross i will start hunting it NOW btw i meant i am hunting it since the morning
                                              Um...I don't think that's totally right. Emerald's RNG definitely is broken, but the way you described... You say that you need Crystal Version for your method, but a lot of the shinies in your sig are 3rd gen, so you couldn't have gotten them all that way! Crystal isn't compatible with advanced gen games, the level of the Pokemon doesn't matter, the location of the egg in your party doesn't matter, I've never heard the 80%-90% thing... Could you please be a little bit more clear about what you're doing? If you're RNGing for shinies, that's fine, but please don't lie to us! We know you can't get shinies from Emerald onto Crystal.
