    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:

    Sorry for any inconvenience!

    Hunt updates:

      Hey, I just realized I completed this month's quest! I caught a shiny pidgey/pidgeot AND and Shiny Torchic on Leafgreen and Sapphire respectively! Both of them have two feet! Do I win this month's challenge?

          Congrats on the ekans! Arbok is one of the cooler first gen shinies, so you should be pretty happy! Good luck on that drifloon! : ) Looks like March has been a good month for people finding shinies.

              I'm kind of worried you guys are going to start thinking I'm cheating since this is the third day in a row I've found a shiny, but after about 4-5 months of searching on and off, I've FINALLY at long last found what I've been looking for since the start of my shiny hunting.

              TA-DAAAAA!!!!



              Awww HECK YEAH ADAMANT NATURE! These are the moments that make shiny hunting worth it!

              Butterfree and Beedrill are two of my absolute favourite Pokemon, and I've been wanting a shiny Beedrill for a long time. Once I EV train this guy, I'll post an updated picture of him as Beedrill. But for now, I'm totally thrilled that I have a 100% legit Adamant Shiny Weedle! I was in a skype call when I found it, and my friends all found it pretty amusing how excited I was. I wish I had it recorded. XD I called him Greg because that's what I always call my male Weedles.

              In a way it's kind of a shame I found him so close to the new monthly quest, but I don't care. I HAVE A SHINY WEEDLE! *parties the night away*

              EDIT: Here's shiny Beedrill, and he's awesome!

                  Tough choice. Lots of good ones, but personally this is the one I've wanted the most from the beginning of shiny hunting.



                  And good luck in Viridian. It took me FOREVER to find a shiny in there. I stopped counting at 6300, and that was a few months ago.

                  Glad to see you caught a Pidgey. Shiney Pidgeot is cool. : )

                      Congrats to Bern and PekoponTAS on the shinies! You guys are super lucky. @_@

                      I finished my national dex and got my shining charm! Excited to hopefully have some of the shiny luck lately rub off on me since I've never found a shiny by hunting for one before. ; I've been hunting a mienfoo with random encounters for a little bit! I'm not sure if this is a good one to pick since there are so many other pokemon that also show up in the area? How do you guys choose what pokemon to RE? Or do you just try to choose an area that all/most of the pokemon are ones you would like to have as shinies?

                      I'm also curious... those of you who SR, is there a way to actually tell how many times you SR or do you count? How do you keep track if it's actually counting?

                        I just use a calculator to count my soft reset lol. Gl on both ur shinies guys . I feel for you trying to hatch an evee, i hatched 2500+ litwick eggs and never got one , that hunt has been going on for 1+ year lol. I just choose an area to random encounter that has a shiny i particularly like, but chances are you may get another. I think im going to update my sig this morning.

                        UPDATE: 3204 drifloon resets

                        Well... not what I was looking for but I do love purple. ;; 342 RE for my first hunted shiny! :D

                        So another curiosity question, if you guys are hunting a shiny through RE and you get a different one in that area (I was looking for mienfoo and got amoonguss), do you keep going or do you give up and try for a different pokemon somewhere else?

                          Nice amoongus , i would just move to a different area where mienfoo could be found because if i had found 2 of the same shiny, i wouldnt be very happy lol. But its your choice entirely.

                          And lol i just realized all of my random encounter shiny pokémon are gold or yellow >___> thats kind of strange.

                            Congratulations (another Shiny?! Oh my days!)
                            How did your first hunted shiny feel?
                            As to your questions~ when I SR, I use my computer for entertainment I.E. streaming movies, and also have the calculator/s up that I need. A tip for that: when you start, do your number of RE's plus one, press equals, and just press equals/the enter key whenever you SR :3
                            I haven't completed an RE hunt yet, but I suppose it depends. If I was looking for a specific shiny I'd probably hunt till I get it, but I generally just pick places with lots of shinies I like.

                              Woah, so many shinies!! Way to go, that's some incredible luck! :O

                              Congrats to PekoponTAS for winning the monthly quest! I also really like your Pickup idea - sounds like a great way to make RE hunting more fun! I think I'll try that next time I have an RE hunt!

                              For me, it usually depends on whether I was hunting for a specific Pokemon or if I just thought the route had a lot of cool shinies. Normally I'll just look for one and then move to another hunt after finding one, but when I'm looking looking for a particular Pokemon (like my Golett hunt), I'll keep REing until I find one, even after I found shiny Druddigon. Axiom 22! :D

                              I love box hunting! It's like free shinies, but they're all yours!

                              I like to leave my shinies in the lowest generation of games, since they can never go back. It's fun to keep them in the games you caught them on. Hey, even your games can have shiny races!

                              Diamond: Haha, I have seven shinies!
                              FireRed: Darn it, I only have two!
                              Diamond: "lol"
                              FireRed: I'll catch up to you some day! *hunts*

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. :/
                              I like 3rd gen too, but 4th gen is also cool...actually, 2nd gen might be the best...gah! They're all fantastic. For SRing, though, 3rd gen (including FRLG) is my favorite, since the SR is much quicker. I can probably do 10 3rd gen SRs in the time it takes to do one 5th gen SR, haha. As for the Pokemon, though, 3rd and 4th are probably my favorites.

                              Yes! Drifloon is one of my favorite shinies. You don't even need to pay close attention - you'll see that bright yellow from a mile away!! Good luck!

                              The answer to this question is Rayquaza. This is a silly question, "lol." DO NOT QUESTION THE INFINITE COOLNESS OF SHINY RAYQUAZA!!

                              I've also been hunting for Eevee (for a few years now, "lol"), so if you want a Great Eevee Race, I'm in! And since egg hatching takes longer than SRs, the odds even themselves out when you consider time.

                                It's funny, Shinyeevee and I were in the chat, and I 100% predicted what the april quest was gonna be. XD Glad my shiny beedrill didn't apply to it. : )

                                As for me, I think that I'll keep hunting in Viridian Forest for Shiny Caterpie or Metapod. Like I said, Butterfree and Beedrill are two of my favourites, so I'd love to have both. I'm also a big enough fan of Beedrill that I wouldn't be upset if I found a second Shiny Weedle. :3

                                Oh, and does the rain dance quest apply to pokemon who can learn it by TM?

                                  Haha, that's awesome! :cer_laugh:

                                  And yes, it counts if they can learn it by TM! The list of Pokemon who learn it through leveling up is pretty limited, so any shiny that could potentially learn the move counts for the quest.

                                  Good luck on your hunt for Caterpie!

                                    @ G-Money: how many drifloon resets did it take you, ballpark it if you dont know exactly :3. Do chained shinys count for the monthly quest lol.

                                    @PekoponTAS: Want to race for shiny caterpie/metapod? :D

                                    UPDATE: 3400 drifloon resets gahhhhhhh

                                    I just discovered what the old lavender town theme sounded like in Gen I, its so... hypnotic @__@.

                                    And to inspire some other discussions, what would you do if you were to find a shiny while in the safari zone? I think i would throw as many balls as possible and pray lol ;D. Or smash my DS into thousands of tiny pieces....

                                      Hello everybody, I'm new to the shiny hunting community, only been doing it for about 2 weeks. My current hunt is for the Johto starters in my HeartGold (SR - 1045 so far), Turtwig in my Pearl (SR - no count), Piplup in my Diamond (SR - no count), and Axew in my Black 2 (MM - 120 so far) and so far I have...

                                      Nature: Careful - Capable of Taking Hits
                                      SR - 119

                                      RE (Not hunting, really just random)

                                      If there is any advice some of you more veteran shiny hunters could offer that'd be awesome. My hardware is 3 3DSs and a DS Lite and my games are FireRed, Emerald, Diamond, Pearl, SoulSilver, HeartGold, Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 (1 copy each).

                                        Try and do many hunts at once, im sring on 2 ds's for drifloon while encountering on firered and leafgreen at the same time. I found 2 shinys yesterday so i like this method so far :D. It will go by quickly if u stay focused.

                                        Update: 4102 soft resets for drifloon -.-. This feels like an eternity , i hope it shines before 8192.....

                                        Oh wow... I missed a lot.... Congrats on all the shinies and welcome to anyone new who may have appeared!

                                        I myself am being fickle on my RE hunt in W2. Right now I'm outside reversal mountain at about 50 REs but I dunno if I should stay there or move somewhere else. Anyone got any suggestions? (I'm rocking the shiny charm soooo)

                                          Okay, changing my Eevee hunt into a Marill hunt! Hooray for a Pokemon that qualifies for the Monthly Quest and is my favourite colour!

                                            Congrats to PekoponTAS for winning the monthly quest! I also really like your Pickup idea - sounds like a great way to make RE hunting more fun! I think I'll try that next time I have an RE hunt!

                                            Welcome to the club drewbie411, Bern, Dr.Josh, and VentusS!

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

                                            The April Monthly Quest!!

                                            Happy April! April is a pretty rainy month...

                                            To complete this month's Quest, find two shinies who can learn Rain Dance! Extra points for a shiny Kyogre or Drizzle Politoed!

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

                                            Good luck and have fun!



                                            For me, it usually depends on whether I was hunting for a specific Pokemon or if I just thought the route had a lot of cool shinies. Normally I'll just look for one and then move to another hunt after finding one, but when I'm looking looking for a particular Pokemon (like my Golett hunt), I'll keep REing until I find one, even after I found shiny Druddigon. Axiom 22! :D



                                            I love box hunting! It's like free shinies, but they're all yours!

                                            I like to leave my shinies in the lowest generation of games, since they can never go back. It's fun to keep them in the games you caught them on. Hey, even your games can have shiny races!

                                            Diamond: Haha, I have seven shinies!
                                            FireRed: Darn it, I only have two!
                                            Diamond: "lol"
                                            FireRed: I'll catch up to you some day! *hunts*



                                            I like 3rd gen too, but 4th gen is also cool...actually, 2nd gen might be the best...gah! They're all fantastic. For SRing, though, 3rd gen (including FRLG) is my favorite, since the SR is much quicker. I can probably do 10 3rd gen SRs in the time it takes to do one 5th gen SR, haha. As for the Pokemon, though, 3rd and 4th are probably my favorites.



                                            Yes! Drifloon is one of my favorite shinies. You don't even need to pay close attention - you'll see that bright yellow from a mile away!! Good luck!



                                            The answer to this question is Rayquaza. This is a silly question, "lol." DO NOT QUESTION THE INFINITE COOLNESS OF SHINY RAYQUAZA!!



                                            I've also been hunting for Eevee (for a few years now, "lol"), so if you want a Great Eevee Race, I'm in! And since egg hatching takes longer than SRs, the odds even themselves out when you consider time.

                                            Eevee: 5374
                                            Golett: 850
                                            I'd love to race!
                                            I probably won't end up completing the monthly quest. As it stands I have a lot of hunting of other targets to do :3

                                            Moltres SR - 814 SRs

                                            I ordered a Firered that should be here on Thursday or so. I kind of want both these hunts done by then, so it looks like some mad hunting ahead...

                                              Do we have to prove that we got the monthly challenge Pokemon or is it just on an honor system? I definitely haven't completed it but I'm working on a Totodile and figured if I get it I'd try for another one who can learn Rain Dance. How is everyone's hunts going? I'm really dedicating myself to the SR Totodile/Cyndaquil hunt, I got another shiny Chikorita (1257 SR) last night, saved and traded it over and started over.
