    A lot of Treekos being hunted for around here! Good luck finding those blue and red geckos, and any other hunts taking place. I'm in the process of hatching my stockpile of 330 Snover eggs, which brings the total number of eggs to 530! MMing is fun and frustrating all at once, that's only (roughly) half the odds and I already feel like it's taken forever!
    I know what you mean with the yellow shinies - those and blue and black ones look really cool to me!
    Good luck to you too - hopefully Snover won't be much later for the holidays!

    Should I try to SR for a shiny Lugia, once I can get to it? It would be my very first shiny legendary, which is nice. But should I skip out and go for one of the bird trio instead? I think I'm going to go browse the shiny versions of the legendaries to help decide.
    Personally I'd go for Lugia - all the birds are awesome, but Lugia's quite a lot more different between its normal and shiny forms than most of the birds. Plus, you can go after the birds after Lugia, but can't go the other way round!

    Welcome to the club, grassbunny! Congrats on the shiny Metapod!

    I MMed some Litwicks on White on the 24th for my birthday, but no luck.
    What is your Litwick hunt up to now..? It's such a shame it couldn't arrive for your birthday! Good luck next time you pick it up! D:

    Good luck also everyone else on their hunts! We need more shinies! xD
    And merry late Christmas to all; I hope everyone got what they wished for and spent plenty of time with family and friends!

    Personally, I received a slightly late Christmas gift today, thanks to my apparently lucky Leafgreen (Which got Articuno at just over 3k and now this...):

    Spoiler:




    Took me only 1326 SRs - I do have my now 16k+ Treecko hunt, my 1300+ Dialga and my 7k+ Kyurem hunts ongoing too... so goodness knows why I got the lowest numbered shiny, but it's okay with me! Lol!
    I got caught so off guard with this. I used 50+ balls, but it ended up going in a Masterball, unfortunately. The whole time I was fighting it I wasn't sure if it was shiny! Lol :D

      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!

                        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
