    Thanks! I hope it serves everyone for a good time! Haha :D
    Thanks for the congrats
    Nuu D: But you see, G has important things to be doing as well as hunting and doesn't get shinies, TSE at that point was doing nothing but hunting and not getting shinies, lol!

    @Leafblade77: Welcome to the club and good luck on your hunt~

    @Spritingyoshi22: Congrats on the corsola!

    @TSE: Congrats on the rumble Pidgeott! I've never played rumble myself and now I'm kind of interested in going back and playing it... it looks pretty fun~

    @DACALSTA: Welcome back!

    @Kirozane: Congrats on the woobat! It's so cute with it's green color~ I think Mint is the perfect name. :3

    @TSE & FishyFins: I'm thinking about doing a badge quest too now that you guys have been talking about it! I had been intending on doing a monotype challenge but I'm more interested in shinies and think this would be more fun for me... Should we do something for the club with this? I was thinking about starting a thread in the challenge forum since there doesn't appear to be one yet...

      I have had about a two year drought (not counting the lost Tentacool) and maybe more. I have found a total of two shinies the whole time since I joined the club. Anyone wanna compete for longest drought?

      Oh, and I joined the chat a bit ago and the profile thing completely freaked me out. I didn't know what was going on.

      What do you mean? I'm on chat for the first time in a while and I saw you sign in. I tried to say 'hi' but you were gone.

        If anyone wants to add me on Skype (I'm TheShiny Eevee it should say from UK) I'm racing with a youtuber called GlasstheDragon in my HG/SS badgequest. We're starting the race tomorrow starting with starters. If anyone wants to join that I'd love to add more people to the race I'll certainly post in a challenge thread if one gets made!

        On topic: I hatched about 100 Eevee eggs today. No cigar. I'm not sure if I'll continue hatching tomorrow or keep going with my starters hunt for the race. I think if I get a starter before GTD in the race then I'll continue Eevee before he gets one, but saying that I really want Eevee for my 50 sub special. Any suggestions? :/

          I'm continuing on my quest for a shiny starter on HeartGold, but man it's taking longer than expected. Grinding away though, as I'm bound to hit one eventually. At least that's the theory. I'll probably grind a little more tonight, but may need a break to actually play a little on a different game. The constant resetting gets tiring after a while.

          Good luck on everyone else's hunt. :D

            Welcome to all new members and congrats on all the new shinies!

            This week's random hunt is... Omanyte!

            I'm still working on my Pokédex on B2. I'm about half done.

              Oh geez! I missed a lot since that forum ran that random update. I got so busy I failed at get the torchic I worked so hard to hunt last week. Strange enough, I sat here for two hours Chaining Pichus when a shiny one popped up on me! Im trying to get my cam running to record me catching this puppy but this laptop's a built-in cam is a mystery to me. Im going to burst from excitement. Im just gonna have to get shots of it after its caught. I threw the ball now. x.x

                Dangit. Oh well I guess it dosn't take the SHINE off Corsola. Anyway I don't think I'm gonna chain for a while as I've already completed my main goals which were: Get more shinys then the previous year and break my 3DS's hoodoo of no Shinys being found on it. Probably going to masuda for Hoothoot on Black version once Ralts decides to shine (Restarted that hunt, This time the Ditto is legit)

                  I've honestly never encountered a legit shiny besides the guaranteed red gyrados in the one game. EVER.

                  Any shinies I have, I cheated lol

                    Hello guys,

                    First Id like to say I own just too many shinies to post them all here, however those are all pokeradared ones. I own 8 1/8192 pokemon however and that's what I will share since those have WAYYY more value.

                    1. Wurmple in RUBY (now Beautifly)
                    2. Wishmur in RUBY
                    3. Zigzagoon in RUBY
                    4. Machop in FIRE RED
                    5. Jigglypuff in FIRE RED
                    6. Spearow in FIRE RED
                    7. Abra in SOUL SILVER (game corner)
                    8. Ekans in SOUL SILVER

                    in DIAMOND i must have over 50 different shinies but they feel less accomplished.

                    I am currently soft resetting for a shiny Charmander in FIRE RED and Im at 1846 soft resets so far, however I am losing hope lol.

                    I also have WHITE version but no luck yet there, but I might try out the Masuda Method after I get Charmander. Any tips on soft resetting starters? I kinda need a boost of motivation haha xD

                      Ok I know double posting isn't allowed but i have great news!! I finally have that lovely yellow lizarddd. Shiny charmander is mine xD!! Took me exactly 2412 SR's so I can't complain that badly:D. I hope this Fire red will be a lucky file lol.

                      Also Thanks a lot for the sweet information at page 777 G Money. The resaving did the trick for me. I was at 2370 SRs when i did my 1st ever resave. Then at 2400 I did another resave and guess what 12 resets later he shines:D. So I am really thinking this works considering i failed 2370 SR's

                      I just thought I'd let you guys know

                          Thank you very much. Aww so sad u lost it man. I can't even start to begin to imagine what that would feel like, especially if its one u worked hard for to get.

                          Oh and as for the IV's and nature... It's a male (thank god lol) with a rash nature (prefered adamant timid or modest but hey rash at least boosts its special attack and his speed isnt hindered lol. Wonder if I should make it a mix sweeper or still run the special set regardless. His IVs are rather average for what i found so far. Nothing superb nothing horrid.

                          HP: 12 - 21
                          Att: 13 - 15
                          Def: 14 - 23
                          SpA: 14 - 17
                          SpD: 23 - 24
                          Speed: 7 - 9

                          Could have been way worse again, just wish his speed was at least 15 or so lol but hey no complaints here.

                          Oh and what should my next hunt be? SR for a mudkip in Ruby, SR for giratina in Diamond, SR for Dialga/groudon in Soul Silver or just random encounter in Fire red (could be anything)?

                          Congratulations on the shiny Charmander. [:

                          I haven't run into any shinies since I found the three Skitty. But I also haven't been hunting at all. I'm not sure what to look for next...perhaps Gastly. That is, if the current swarm isn't something I'd like to catch as a shiny.

                          Also, I figured you guys might find this useful. It's helpful in searching for your next target:

                          Hey everyone!~ So I went ahead and set up a thread in the challenge forum for "The Shiny Hunter Challenge"! If anyone has suggestions for rules/optional rules let me know! I kind of just made everything up because I didn't know where to go with it other than basing it around shinies. Haha. Here's the link: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=301216 If you're already doing a run or something similar feel free to join even if you've already started or even if you're not doing exactly what the rules state (let me know so I can expand!) I hope a bunch of you here are interested in doing this with me! =3

                          @TSE: Maybe set a certain amount of time aside for eevee hunting and do a little every day? Or instead of time do a certain number of eggs? Then you can dedicate the rest of your free time to the race but still spend a little time on eevee every day.

                          @Dimitrius: Congrats on the Pichu!

                          @Janske: Congrats on the Charmander! I wonder if the saving thing is legit or if it's just a happy coincidence? .....I still hold down and B when catching pokemon. c_c;

                          @Slenderman: Thanks for that link! Not that I need more shiny hunts to add to my list... xD

                            Woohoo!!! After 2000ish soft resets (I stopped keeping track after a while) I finally got myself a shiny Totodile on HeartGold! Woot!

                            Nicknamed him Aggro
                            male
                            modest nature (not ideal, but he'll Surf like a beast I hope)
                            Often scatters things (whatever the heck that means...)
                            Attack 9
                            Defense 12
                            Special Attack 11
                            Special Defense 10
                            Speed 9

                            As it's not a 1/8000ish thing I guess it won't count toward the contesty thing, but hey, 3/8000ish is still pretty awesome, so I'm happy. :D Yay yay yay!

                              Thank you guys for your replies:D. Made me even happier after reading them haha xD. I think I decided to random encounter for nidoran male next on fire red (that blue nidoking is just so awesome lol) on and off while doing some SR's for either giratina on diamond or dialga in soul silver.

                              I hope it wont take me too long lol. About the happy coincidence Kitori I have absolutely no idea, but since it worked for me, I might try it out for the next SRs I do and fill you in on how it goes.

                              Good luck to everyone who is hunting shinies :D

                              Hi guys!

                              It's been a long time xD
                              Truth is I stopped hunting and playing pokémon alltogether for a while, but this holiday, I decided to give it another shot and it instantly paid off!

                              After three days of hunting, and 1374 SRs, may I present to you:


                              A.K.A. 'Savior'

                              IVs: 2/27/29/9/14/14
                              As it's got a Brave nature and fairly good IVs for Attack/ Defense, I'll probably be going for an Attack/ Defense Suicune, which is not on Smogon but I made one up already.

                              Good luck with all of your hunts!

                                Congratz on your shiny Suicune man! And what a lucky guy you are:O. Only 1.3k SR's, that definetely isn't too bad:O.

                                Any idea on what you will hunt next? And I never had a shiny legendary before, though I might do so on fire red.

                                    Sure man:D, though currently I am ahead of you since I obtained a shiny charmander already xD. But that doesn't mean you can't catch up to me lol. It just gives u more pressure to get that shiny. Oh and I am not going to lose here easily so give me your best:D

                                      Welcome to the club to the new members!
                                      Congrats on the Charmander and the Suicune (they're both so purdy :D)
                                      And welcome back the club from your break pokewalker.

                                      Koopafan, what are you hunting? I'm not sure if we have anything to race for right now, but if we do sure thing!

                                      My updateeee:
                                      Eevee MM - 2225
                                      Johto Starters - 9000 Seen

                                      Gonna keep going with at least 1000 Johto starters a day until I get it. Then I'll be hardcore hunting for Eevee till that shines!

                                        @Jenske Lol thanks, but my party of Shiny pkmn more than make up for it.

                                        @Kitori Thank you! :D

                                        @Pokewalker Geez! Thats awesome, Shiny suicune. Im trying to get Shiny Entei and Raikou, I just released them all from the tower. Its gonna be killer trying to get them to show themselves. v.v

                                        Hehehe. A bunch of you are going for some really sweet looking Shiny pkmn. Having gotten Shiny Pichu, and it having evolved into Pikachu and my Shiny Eevee into Umbreon, Ive started my hunt on Dratini. Alright Torchic was once first on my current hunting list, it dropped to third after pichu and now Dratini. Im thinking of being crazy and switching out my Shiny Croconaw for a Shiny Horsea... But I dont got one, and am not sure where's the best place or game to hunt for it on. Hm. Gotta see where my priorities are. x.x

                                        Good luck with the Shiny hunting everyone!!!

                                          @TSE; Thanks a lot:D. What are you hunting for at the moment?

                                          @ Dimitrius; If you want a place with a lot of horsea i recommend to super rod in BW in route 18. Though it seems a lot of work, u can register the rod and then press double Y to immediatly cast it without ANY waste of time. You will find horsea there with a 60% chance rate. Definetely recommended. You can of course also do this in the ruby,sapphire,emerald version where there is that old man that takes you to the liechi berry island but they are less common (30%).

                                          And I really love this community, everyone is so nice/awesome. I never experienced this before lol.
