So after filling up 7 boxes, I had almost filled up the 8th, when the very last egg hatched, and:

Then a green sandshrew hatched! She's jolly nature, capable of taking hits and named Squirrel.

So yay I have a shiny sandshrew (Merry Christmas AlexOzzyCake!) yand my first hunt by MM is complete! yay :D

Not sure what I'll go for next, but probably another MM hunt as I enjoyed this one! :D

    12,987 soft resets and no shiny Bulbasaur. BUT hunting a shiny Kecleon does sound like sweet mercy compared to this!

        I've gotten addicted to growing berries in Sapphire again, so I was using the pick up ability in LeafGreen to find the rare berries when I stumbled upon this!



        I caught it at full health on my first Pokeball too! Jolly nature makes me happy for Pidgey. Called it Hawkeye despite it being a female. XD I guess now I'll hunt for rare berries in Viridian Forest and hopefully find a shiny there too. : ) This is my first shiny since my data corrupted in Sapphire and I lost my shiny Blaziken and Machamp.

        EDIT: I infected it with my legit third gen Pokerus I got on Sapphire, and EV trained it. Rather than have it be a straight up sweeper, I balanced him out a bit.
        252 EVs in Speed
        80 EVs in Defense
        80 EVs in Special Defense
        and 92 EVs in Attack

        I've always been nostalgic for Pidgeot, so this is probably the happiest I've ever been about finding a shiny. The fantasy of flying on the back of a sparkling Pidgeot has always been an appealing one, so this is about as close as I'll ever get to that.

          @ PekoponTAS ~Congratz on your beautiful shiny pidgeot. Wish you many joyful rides on your bird

          @drewbie411~ welcome to the club and good luck for your muccino.

          @GoLurkisDaBomb~congratz on your sandshrew. I feel your pain on egg hatching for a shiny. Currently working on a vulpix and so far nothing. Have about 5 boxes full, going to be releasing them and filling up another batch.

          @kitori ~ welcome to the club ^-^ some suggestions for your purple team, Miensho, sharpedo, moltres, dragonair, honchkrow, and marshtomp . You stream older games on youtube?

          @Ceecee_101 Welcome to this club .

          Estimates:

          Shroomish: 450 eggs
          Abra: 18,905 ( Not sure what the encounter rate on that route is. so probably 18,000 RE.)
          Route 32: 3000
          Torchic: 6540
          Ho-oh: 12,700 only ( took me what seemed an enternity to get mine, but well worth it ^-^)


          Today I got a suprise shiny after eve training on some drowzees on Rte. 34, will post pictures when i find my cord :D.

            Just felt like seeing what's been going on in the club. Welcome to the new members who joined, and congrats to PekoponTAS on shiny Pidgeot, GolurkIsDaBomb on Sandshrew and nizare18 on his secret shiny (wanna know what it is!). Hopefully I get lucky like you guys soon! I haven't found any shinies yet, but I did start a new hunt today in HG for shiny Eevee. Here are the current numbers:

            Dratini - 2855 SRs (SS)
            Piplup - 0 SRs (Platinum)
            Eevee - 25 SRs (HG)

            I'm really hoping my HG Eevee shines quickly, the one I got in SS took over 9000 SRs so I would hope this one doesn't take nearly as long. Also hope to evolve it into Umbreon, it's my favorite eeveelution and the one I wanted the first time around.. but I chose to evolve it into Espeon because it would be better suited for a Timid nature. On top of that, it was female. Now I have my second chance and I'm going for Umbreon again, but I'll evolve Eevee depending on the nature since there are so many options. If it's a neutral nature I might not even evolve it so who knows. I'm gonna put Piplup to the side to hunt casually, I reset the game yet again because the SRs are just way too long and I get frustrated. Professor Rowan running his mouth, Dawn always claiming how she needs to pass when I'm clearly not even in her way... like come on now. But I really want the Piplup so I can finally play in Sinnoh for the first time, so I'll slow grind for it while focusing on the faster hunts.

            Good luck to everyone! *

              Hi there all, I've been playing since R/S/E and have always been fascinated by shiny pokemon. I like to chain pokémon mostly, although i do have a few RE shiny's. Anyways, i am an on and off player, recently ive chained a lot and caught over 20 shiny's in 2 weeks. My goal is to get my first SR shiny by the end of March, which is a drifloon. My other goal is to succesfully chain a dual slot only pokémon, which are vulpix and shuckle. I havent had much success for three days though, i had a chain of 40 ponyta and my first shiny patch after 89 max repels was on the edge, and i stupidly went to it and it broke. Every chain since has broke into the high twenties or thirties. I am interested in joining this club because i think hunting with a lot of people is more fun than by yourself, and it is uplifting to hear other people's success stories while contributing your own. I wish everybody luck in their current hunts.

              EDIT:

              Drifloon - 752 Soft Resets
              Vulpix - Chain breaks at 29 and 36

              I hope my drifloon shines soon. I'm dual sring to make it go by faster. I'm hoping to get one before i hit 4000 resets, but you never know :/

                Spoiler:


                well, ive returned. I've been hunting in so many places in so many games, i cant tell you how many encounters ive done. But here, ive been wanting an Onix for ages, and you really cant get one at a low level unless you go to Rock Tunnel. So that's where ive been for a while. This guy finally shows, im disappointed. ah well. I'll catch it and continue hunting here

                Congrats to all other shinies since my last post

                  Well, my hunt for Ho-Oh ended a LONG time ago, after resetting my SS. XP

                  But, well, I think my hunting will begin again - tonight! Although I'm a bit perplexed on what Pokemon to hunt. :/

                    Just dropping in to say hi!
                    Welcome to all the new members we have now since I last posted, wow there's a lot xD
                    Congrats on all those awesome shinies!

                    An update on my hunts:
                    Both first legs of my Ruby BQ and my Soulsilver BQ are at about 1100 REs each. I'm terrible at REing, I've found out! Lol.
                    I'm also Masudaing for a second shiny Eevee, which I'm up to about 650 for that. Plus, I started a Moltres SR hunt on LG, that I plan to hunt alongside Eevee. If I find Eevee first, I'll dual hunt Moltres on LG and HG.
                    Spring break's coming up, so hopefully that means more shinies!

                    @Flydro Perhaps you'd like to race for Eevee? I'm Masudaing, so the odds are a bit unfair, but it's all for fun
                    @Wandering~Leaf I was always fascinated by the Pokemon in Dragon's Den. Or you could hunt one of the other birds perhaps? (Or mewtwo!)
                    Good luck everyone!

                      Well i just busted open my old emerald cartridge to check if i ever found a shiny without even knowing. In the fourth box of the PC i found a shiny Golbat! ^__^ She's Hasty natured, not sure if its good or bad.

                      I remember the story behind this. I was running through victory road and all i had encountered were male golbats and other pokés, but this golbat was female so i thought all females looked like this. So i caught it because it looked cool XD. I caught sometime in 2003 or 2004 i think, not sure. This means this was my first shiny before shinx in diamond.

                      Should i evolve her into a Crobat? Should i transfer it to my diamond? >____>

                        Congrats on the shiny Sandshrew, GolurkIsDaBomb!

                        Congrats on the shiny Pidgey, PekoponTAS!

                        Congrats on the shiny, nizare18!

                        Congrats on the shiny Zubat, Keruso!

                        Welcome to the club, drewbie411 and Bern!

                        @Bern Hasty is decent. It's good to have a +speed nature on Golbat. I caught a female shiny Golbat in gen 3 too. I duplicated it using the Battle Tower glitch in Emerald so I could have multiple Golbats and Crobats.

                        I was extremely busy last week, so I completely forgot to post a weekly hunt. Sorry about that. To make up for it, I will post two for this week.

                        This week's random hunts are... Kricketot and Tynamo!

                        Thanks everyone for the welcomes! You're all so nice. :]

                        I decided to put my shiny eevee hunting (for my purple vaporeon) on hold until I get the shining charm. Having trouble pinning down articuno mostly and then some odds and ends pokemon. I hope to have it by the end of the week and then I'll put my effort toward shiny hunting! I'm excited since I haven't found a shiny in the game yet except for the programmed in ones.

                          @ Latios Master: Oo, a battle tower glitch to duplicate the shiny? im going to look that up before i evolve her then.
                          @Kitori: Goodluck on your first un-programmed shiny! ^__^

                          Today i also downloaded a heartgold rom since i cant buy the game myself :/. Just started and its awsome. I have never played in johto before! I also decided to start random encounter on three systems using my copies of LG FR and E, im hoping for a vulpix or a shroomish .

                          Update:

                          Drifloon - 1008 SR's

                          And lookie what i found on my emulated version of pokémon FireRed!!! Found it within 25 minutes of starting the game.

                            I've been lazy about hunting lately. I currently am pretty sick and too tired to do much, so I guess I have plenty of time for soft resetting. I'm at just the right part of Soulsilver that I can SR for a Dratini, at least.

                              I've been having a lot of fun hunting in Viridian Forest in Leaf Green ever since I came up with a little mini-game to play while shiny hunting to keep things interesting. It doesn't have a name yet, so for now let's just call it "Shiny Pick-Up" This is best played on a Game Boy Player.

                              What you do is you have your guy you intend to use to catch your shiny up front, (in my case a high leveled False Swipe Scizor) and have five other Pokemon that have the pick-up ability.

                              Next, set the built in timer on the Game Boy Player for ten minutes.

                              Once the timer starts, you have ten minutes to try and get as many items as you can with the pick-up ability, each with their own point value. (I advise turning battle animations off to speed up battles) Of course the main goal is to find and catch a Shiny Pokemon, so that has a point value too. You'll have to keep track of this on paper of course. You can quickly jot the numbers down during the encounter animations. If you still have an old magnadoodle kicking around that isn't broken, this would be a good time to dig it out.

                              Regular Berries (Oran etc.) 5 Points
                              PP Up 20 Points
                              TM10 20 Points
                              Nugget 30 Points
                              Rare Candy 40 Points
                              Rare Berries (Spelon etc.) 60 Points
                              Shiny Pokemon Capture 400 Points

                              (Point value is based on rarity of item pick-ups, and overall usefulness of the items in question)

                              There are a few rules to keep track of.

                              a)When time runs out, the game immediately ends, even if you were just about to take an item off of one of your Pokemon.

                              b)You are not allowed to check how much time is left on the timer once you start it. (adds some extra tension which overall makes the game more fun)

                              c)If you run into a shiny, you are allowed to stop the clock. Make sure you check the time before you stop it, because after you capture your shiny you can start the clock back up. The time you set it for is based on when you stopped the clock, rounded up or down to the nearest minute. So for example if you run into a shiny at 5 minutes 23 seconds remaining and stop the clock, you start it back up at 5 minutes. If it's 5 minutes 35 seconds remaining, you start it back up at 6 minutes remaining. If it's exactly on the thirty second mark, you round up.

                              (This rule can be considered optional if you're too nervous that you might accidentally hit "Change Game Pak" which is right next to the timer)

                              Once the time limit is up you calculate your score, and try to get a higher score next time. Plus you can use all the free rare candies, Nuggets, PP Ups, and Rare Berries in your third gen games. If you haven't finished up the battle tower or all of those contests in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, the rare candies and berries you get from this mini-game will be a good way to help you do it.

                              This has made shiny hunting a lot more fun, and often I get really wrapped up in the mini-game and completely forget about the fact that I'm looking for shinies. If you have a Game Boy Player, or any kind of timer, I suggest you try it out. My highest score so far is 275 points. ; ) (Got three rare berries and a few other good ones)

                                  Even though I have the Shiny Charm in Black 2 for months now, I hadn't gone hunting for shinies with it until tonight. It only took about three battles before I found this! Either that shiny charm works extremely well, or I still got pretty darn lucky. I overall wasn't too excited about it since I found it THAT quickly, and it's kind of a lame shiny, but hey, it still counts!


                                  caught it on the first Pokeball thrown at full health, a quick ball. It's not the greatest shiny out there, but it's still cool I got it. Maybe a little clarification on how well the shiny charm really works would make this feel more significant to me. As it is right now, it's a bit underwhelming. :/

                                  Think I'll go back to my GBA cartridges and try and get my shiny Torchic back that I lost in a file corruption a while back. I miss that little guy. :<

                                    Update on my hunts ~~~~~~

                                    Drifloon - 1700 Srs (did 600 today dual sring )
                                    I am also REing on routes 7 and 8 on LG and FR while i SR, got 2 Gba's and 2 ds's to help me. So far i havent encountered anything yet, but im still hopefull! I wont give up on drifloon until maybe i rich 8192 resets, but i probably wont. Has anybody else received a drifloon through SR before?

                                    EDIT: Forgot to mention im probably around 750-1000 random encounters currently.

                                        Just kind of curious, but does any one have a favourite generation of shinies to hunt? Personally I like looking for Hoenn shinies since that seems to be the one game where they understood what made shinies cool and had radically different colour schemes. Also since random encountering is my favourite way to shiny hunt, Ruby and Sapphire are great choices since there's a ton of options in the wild in those games. FireRed and Leafgreen don't have a ton of great choices for random encounter hunting. :/

                                        Oh, and by the way, don't forget about the chat. I'm often in there while I shiny hunt, and nobody ever gets in there. : (

                                        *Current hunts*

                                        Torchic (ruby) 312 Soft resets

                                        EDIT: Well, looks like it's been my lucky month. First Pidgeot, then Zebstrika, and now I got my shiny Torchic back! You may or may not remember that I got a shiny Torchic and machop, and then my save file corrupted and I lost them both. Well, I now got my Torchic back, and it only took 370 Soft Resets! I have a feeling my luck is going to run out soon. XD



                                        A shame about its kind of crummy nature, but I don't care. I'm just glad I have him again. : )

Personally I like looking for Hoenn shinies since that seems to be the one game where they understood what made shinies cool and had radically different colour schemes. Also since random encountering is my favourite way to shiny hunt, Ruby and Sapphire are great choices since there's a ton of options in the wild in those games. FireRed and Leafgreen don't have a ton of great choices for random encounter hunting. :/

                                          Oh, and by the way, don't forget about the chat. I'm often in there while I shiny hunt, and nobody ever gets in there. : (

                                          *Current hunts*

                                          Torchic (ruby) 312 Soft resets

                                          EDIT: Well, looks like it's been my lucky month. First Pidgeot, then Zebstrika, and now I got my shiny Torchic back! You may or may not remember that I got a shiny Torchic and machop, and then my save file corrupted and I lost them both. Well, I now got my Torchic back, and it only took 370 Soft Resets! I have a feeling my luck is going to run out soon. XD



                                          A shame about its kind of crummy nature, but I don't care. I'm just glad I have him again. : )
                                          (Amanda is the name of one of my characters I draw in various comics)

                                          I actually play a very watered down version of your mini-game while I RE on my Ruby, as luck would have it!

                                          Congrats on Zebstrika and Torchic within mere days of eachother! That's pretty insane despite the Shiny Charm O: (The chances of encountering a shiny in the wild with the Shiny Charm is changed to 1/2730, which is about a third of the normal chances. Masuda is even lower!)

                                          Eevee MM - 840 Eggs

                                              Just a quick chat update:
                                              I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing this, but when I go onto xat.com/pokecommunityshinyhuntersclub, no background pops up in the chat box and I can't see if anybody's online.
                                              If anyone else is experiencing this, the solution is to visit the chatbox via this link:
                                              http://xat.com/xat179705497
                                              Sorry for any inconvenience!
