    Im currently using mm to try and hatch a shiny Eevee. And im hoping that it doesnt turn out to take forever. What was the fastest hatching of a shiny? (Using mm most likely) Or the quickest time on the poke radar?

    I've never gotten a shiny via Masuda or Pokeradar. So yeeeah. Not really reliable methods, imo. I'd rather just RNG.

    I've never got a shiny, so I can't help.

      I don't really like RNGing, it takes the fun away from finding Shinies. All my shinies are got from Random Encounters.

          The 3 shinies I've found have been random, Never tried to reliably catch one. I just keep at least 1 masterball on me at all times...

            Soft resetting can work, but with eggs you need to save before you recieve the egg.

                I have been playing for a little over 12 years and I have yet to obtain a shiny (i dont know when they were introduced, however). from expirence, i cant help. Its all up to luck. Always be prepared. I hope you have better luck than I do, because im 0-(everything). Good Luck.

                Regards, Chris

                  That's actually a pretty good idea. In B2 I have not used either Master Ball and have caught everything possible - maybe I should do that as well!

                  I never got any shiny Pokémon through RNG (because I tried and failed) or through chaining (because the chain breaks before I have a chance of running into one); all of the shinies I caught were through sheer luck alone.

                    I dont even know what those RNG , MM , random word supposedly meaning "a way to get a shiny" are... I recently caught my first shiny (a 14 year poke career) and it was a random encounter...

                    my shiny onix now a gold steelix (see below) named Goldix

                    I would occasionally sav edit a shiny... and it would always be an onix cause a gold steelix is sweet... I was blown away when I found that honest shiny onix... made me so happy

                      Sometimes I decide to start hunts, but I find it the easiest to hunt for shiny starters on HG/SS, since you can check all three at once.

                      That's always been my philosophy, too, which is why my Shiny Ducklett (now Swanna) is in a Master Ball, even if I probably could've caught it with something else.

                      The only real method of trying to catch shiny Pokemon that I used was with the PokeRadar, and I found I could never chain more than 25-30 Pokemon in a row, so I gave up on it pretty quickly.

                        I've tried hunting for shinies, mostly through Pokemon that are exploitable to soft-resetting.

                        Chaining is really difficult. XD

                          I can't figure out how RNG is supposed to work yet, but I've randomly ran into a couple shinys. One was a shiny Sandile from desert resort.

                            I wish I could RNG because it would help in my shiny hunting. But so far only two encounters randomly.

                              I don't think that you can shiny hunt without just aimlessly walking around. I found a shiny Golbat once, but I didn't have a masterball yet, and my lowest level Pokemon was my HM Slave Suicune... who killed him in one hit.

                                Harsh lol. I would have been ticked off if that happened to me. Which, now that I said it, probably will.
