    I haven't posted in a while because finding one shiny always deflates my shiny hunting enthusiasm a bit. Finding three in one day really killed my shiny hunting spirit. I got a White 2 last night and am playing through it now. I still need to migrate my Pikachu and Rattata up to White, grind the Pikachu and my Raticate up to lv 100 and I'm gonna leave my 2nd shiny Rattata as it is. Gonna hunt the Regis on W2 and then probably finish up drillbur on white then use White and White 2 to double hunt fossils.

          I'm back, and I'm giving up all my past hunts! Now I'm ready to try the Monthly and Yearly Challenges! No, probably not for a while, but anyone have any idea what to hunt? I've been thinking about hunting for a shiny Togepi or Foongus, but anyone else got ideas? I wont start hunting until I complete my White and my Love in the Clouds Challenge.

                I got a shiny uncatchable Poochyena last night at about 18,200 SRs for Treecko. Shame, but.. onwards to hunting!

                    Hi there! I'm Faux, I'm new to PC but I've browsed this thread a lot anonymously when trying to keep myself motivated for my own hunts!

                    Shinies I currently own are:

                    Rapidash (Gift from a friend, unsure if its legit or not because it's in a masterball)
                    Roselia (It broke my Bidoof chain, but I was glad it did!)
                    Gastly (157 random encounters in the Old Chateau)


                    And most recently, Eeevee! I lost count of how many SRs in front of Bill this took, but probably around 5 thousand. Took 8 months on and off to obtain, just got it the other day! I was overjoyed! I named him Elusive. I don't know what to evolve him into, but depending on the new Eevee-lution's shiny form, I might evolve it into that. If not, probably gonna go Vaporeon!

                    I'm taking a little bit of a shiny hunt break for now, I'm so overwhelmed over the Eevee! -giggles- But I'll continue my MM Tangela hunt soon. c:

                      Welcome GlitchMonstah, and you are too good, you HAVE FOUR SHINIES!!! I have only 2, both from in-game events (Red Gyarados and Black Skyscraper/Tower) and let a third one run away during Bug Catching Contest. Okay, I've narrowed down my hunting options to either Lickitung, Eevee, Basculin, Frillish, Surskit or Jynx, and don't mind which so anyone have a suggestion which one to go for?

                        Spoiler:


                        Shiny drilbur after 463 eggs. Now I have a question does pikachu #20 and dribur #529 count for the february shiny quest?

                          Welcome to the club, GlitchMonstah!
                          I'd naturally go with Eevee, because it's like have 8 shinies in one...
                          Congratulations Arceus! You're on a roll! xD

                          Literally little over 24 hours after the uncatchable pooch, Treecko showed up! It took about 18,350 SRs, and I called it Sam, because I was listening to Sam's Town by the Killers. It was going to be my last soft reset of the day!
                          I'm now hunting Petalburg Woods, in hopes for Slakoth, Shroomish or Taillow, at about 700 REs

                            Hey everyone. Any tips on catching shiny entei/raikou? I can't find any info on the internet. Do they have to be shiny before they flee the tower? Can you see it in their sprites? Any help would be much appreciated.

                            Mark

                              @pokemark save before they flee, let them flee, encounter them, if their not shiny SR. Because their shininess and all that are determined when they flee not when you encounter them. Like an egg's shininess is determined when you receive it not when you hatch it.

                                    I have decided to go with Eevee for my hunt! Also, for my benefit, I will make my Avatar that of the shiny sprite of [insert hunting objective here] so to help myself remember! So, time to hunt!

                                      Hi everyone, Looks like you are all doing good.
                                      First of all, welcome to all new members, hope you enjoy the club.
                                      Congrats to chocolatecrunch on scraggy, to TSE on treecko, Arceus whisper on drilbur pikachu and rattatas, Keruso on budew and bidoof, Nizare18 on Ho-oh and any I may have missed.

                                      Now my update after some time since my last post:

                                      2 shiny riolu, (one a lucario now) probably masuda method,black version
                                      shiny elekid, random hatching, black version
                                      shiny poochyena, masuda method probably, black version
                                      shiny registeel, SR, white 2, caught in premier ball.

                                      pics:
                                      shiny riolu.jpg
                                      shiny lucario.jpg
                                      shiny elekid.jpg
                                      shiny poochyena.jpg
                                      shiny registeel white 2.jpg

                                      i think elekid and poochyena count for this month's quest so i guess i completed it.

                                      Cya next time and happy hunting.

                                          Hey all, just felt like giving an update. My current hunts:

                                          Dratini - 2525 SRs (Soul Silver)
                                          Piplup - 350 SRs (Platinum)

                                          Haven't posted here in a while because I haven't had any luck finding shinies. Been playing through Heart Gold since finding Diplo, my shiny Chikorita. It has since evolved into Bayleef and right now I'm looking to beat Whitney so I can head to Ecruteak and talk to Bill. After that I'll be starting a new hunt for shiny Eevee. No rush though since I still have two other hunts going on as well, hopefully Dratini or Piplup shine for me soon! Dratini resets go by extremely quickly, but I want shiny Piplup most. Is there anyone hunting for a shiny Dragon type or shiny Gen IV starter? I'm interested in racing if anyone else is up for it, trying to get some motivation.

                                          Also, welcome to all new members and congrats on all the new shinies caught! Good luck to everyone on their hunts!

                                              You wanna race? What game are you hunting it in and what method are you using if you don't mind me asking?

                                                Hmm, sure! I'm just searching around Pokémon Emerald currently, mostly hatching eggs, some searching around.

                                                  A race; it's been a long time since there was a race. Sounds like fun. I wonder who will get his first.
                                                  We should do more races in the club , like, who can get X number of pokemon of the same color or type, or who can complete a pokemon set first, like the starters or legendary sets, also getting pokemon that learn X type move that is not of it's own type or maybe a surfing/fishing contest. Maybe pokeradar contests too on weekends, only if there are enough people who have DPPt and access to pokeradar.

                                                  Now my update, and again in a premier ball, at first try and full hp after I put it to sleep:

                                                  PICT0065.jpg

                                                  with this the regi set is complete in white2.

                                                  Cya next time and happy hunting.

                                                    Congrats to everyone who's gotten shinies and joined the club over the past month! Also, congrats to the three winners of the February Monthly Quest: Arceus Whisper with Pikachu and Rattatta, nizare18 with Gastly and Ho-oh, and Chr. Draco with Poochyena and Elekid!

                                                    Now it's time for...*drumroll*...

                                                    Happy March! To celebrate, let's get march-ing Pokemon...ha...ha...

                                                    To complete this month's Quest, find two shinies with two feet! Only bipedal Pokemon count for the Quest!

                                                    Be careful hunting in Emerald! It's set up so that shinies are based on how long your game has been on, so if you're unlucky and don't get a shiny until, say, 10 hours into playing, that 10 hours will reset every time you turn off your game.

                                                    Fortunately this is only a problem in Emerald, so you might have more luck hunting in another game. FireRed and LeafGreen have something similar when soft resetting, but it shouldn't be a problem when walking around. Saving resets the way shinies appear every time, so if you ever decide to SR in FR/LG, all you need to do is resave every 25-35 SRs and you should be fine.
