    Congrats on another shiny (any shiny not cheated for is a win), but I do hope you get your Mareep soon.

    I am now at 850 SR's for a Dratini, with 4250 seen. This SR stuff is crazy, and I am (statistically) just over half way...

        So... I've spent my first 900 REs EV training my shiny chimchar (now a level 28 monferno xD). No shinies yet, but I think I might stay in this area for a while before going off to the first gym as there are several pokemon there I'd like on my team (abra, starly, shinx). ;

        @Brickbusterx: Welcome (finally)! AND GRATS ON THE SHINY TOTODILE YAAAY :D

        @Cheesecake: Welcome! I've added you to the challenge and congrats on the ratatat! I'm sorry you already have one! I hope mareep shines for you soon. Correct me if I'm wrong... you have 3 shinies in HeartGold right now?

        Good luck everyone!

          I would be too scared to RE for an abra in case it teleports away....

          @Paulthagerous: My Monferno knows taunt! It will still be a nerve-racking experience if abra shines, but at least I have a guaranteed few turns before it will escape me. xD Maybe I should go after a pokemon that knows sleep first....

            Or trade over something that knows Arena Trap or Shadow Tag to swap out if you see it shine? Would that be within the rules if you don't fight with it?

              Yes you are right my starter(quilava) 2 shiny ratatas(more like trolls xD) and now at another 2000 REs since that last rattata for shiny mareep again thanks for the good luck guys it means alot I've been nonstop hunting since I got home from school 6 hours ago. Good luck on your quests :D and congrats on the totodile.

              @ kitori I have 3 shinies and 1 badge and be careful with abra I think their only move is teleport you may want to bring a mean look ghastly

                Good luck with yours, though finding 2 shiny Ratata is better than nothing

                  @Kitori: Hey Kit, I was wondering what have been up to lately:p. I hope you taught your monferno nasty plot since it modest:p. I dunno how serious you take competitive battling or if it intrests you, but I saw you put a post about modest being a bad nature for it. the thing is yes adamant/jolly are the more common ones but modest has it advantages. With nasty plot learning it at lvl22 being a chimchar makes it a good sweeper. Nasty plot, focus blast, fire blast and grass knot would be a perfect coverage

                  @cheesecake: WTF lol already 3 shinies xD, even though you have been trolled like me but then with spearows haha xD.

                  @Brickbusterx: Nice nature for your shiny totodile!! Very lucky indeed :D

                          Oh this is hilarious.. I've gone 10 years without a single legit shiny, and you expect me to get a TEAM of them? This challenge will last the rest of my life.. ahaha.

                            I got 3 on silver throughout my young years with hundreds of hours played. My youngest brother got one within the first hour of his first game. Luck varies from person to person

                            I was contemplating trying this, but my multitasking is simply not good enough to do something else at the same time, so i will just stick to watching. I'm cheering for you all from the sidelines

                              Well I appreciate the cheer, but I think I may join you. I don't have hours to waste on soft-resetting XD.

                              In fact, a friend of mine had to SR like 667 times to get his shiny starter. He was literally SR'ing for about 8 hours straight. (while multi-tasking of course) I just don't want to end up like him

                                I wouldn't have the patience to do a badge quest, but 3 over the course of the game is challenging. I am getting pretty tired of all my SRing though, hope it comes to an end soon.

                                  YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME OUT OF ALL THE POKEMON ON THIS ROUTE...



                                  I didn't think it would happen I kept telling myself I would get something new this time but as you can see that was a lie
                                  even with static this hunt still remains to failw ith the same shiny everytime at least this one is a female oh well you must
                                  stay optimistic and never give up let this be a lesson guys if you really want something never stop until it is yours.

                                  @Kitori - make that 4 shinies and 1 badge

                                        Long time no see again!
                                        Sorry I took ages off between posts, I was busy hatching almost 4000 eggs for my shiny Eevee on another game
                                        Anyway, back to this challenge, I'm at 2200 REs so far (Day three of hunting) for Route 30. Obviously nothing yet haha.
                                        Glass- I think Mareep was waiting for me to hatch Eevee.. it appeared only a few days later! :O
                                        It's quite cool to see the difference in spectrum between the new hunters that aren't used to waiting and the old ones who are, from here and the shiny hunter's club hahah XD
                                        Anyway congratulations to the Cyndaquil, Chimchar, Totodile, Ratatta and Mareep (did I forget anyone?) and good luck to all those hunting!

                                          In order to keep myself from hacking in pokemon or abusing certain tools that I have access to in gen 4+ i'm going to choose something from Gen 3 lol....
                                          Game(s): Because its awesome... Liquid Crystal. and IF hacked roms are not allowed I will do Emerald (but only if hacked roms are not allowed, Liquid Crystal is accepted in most challenges as it is only Crystal remade for gen 3 with harder stuff and a lot of nice features that were not included in FireRed)
                                          This will be something i do from time to time I don't want to burn out my pokemon experience with soft reseting 100000 times to get my starter as a shiny only to take another 100000 times for party member #2. Alas i've wanted to do such a LEGIT challenge in the past so i'll see what i can do lol...

                                          Hey hon, please remember not to post these kinds of posts. I'm glad you want to cheer everyone on, but unless you're participating as well, just give them their cheers through VM please. :)

                                          Also, to those participating, while I'm totally fine with everyone discussing their challenge with others, let's try to not turn this thing into a discussion thread, please. If you really want to talk to someone about their challenge in particular, just VM them about it, or you can talk about it in the club. Like I said, I'm fine if you guys want to discuss it and such, but this thread seems to be turning into a conversation or discussion thread, which isn't really a good thing. If you want to talk about it as a group, try keeping it in your club, mkay? It's just getting a little spammy lately imo, so yeah, just be wary of that please. Good to see you all getting some shinies caught though! Keep up the good work, babes! x

                                            I started typing replies that were discussion-y before I saw Sydian's post, sorry! ; I didn't want to just delete it so I put it below in the spoiler. Any further discussion direct to the Shiny Hunters Club, please, and keep posts here limited to updates on your progress (new shinies caught, gym leaders defeated, etc)~

                                            Spoiler:
                                            @Paulthagerous: It seems to me that trading stuff over borderlines cheating... but seriously, who wants to risk losing a shiny even if it means skating that line? LOL I haven't done it yet, just been relying on taunt for now... I guess I'll think about it, but I wont say people cant trade stuff over for this purpose.

                                            @PiemanFiddy: It makes me sad when people refer to shiny hunting as time wasting, but I guess I can see how people would find it tedious. ; Honestly I find EV training super tedious as well (though I know it's a lot easier in BW2 now)... though I guess having a shiny pokemon isn't a strategic advantage at all. Honestly, I find shiny hunting a great wind-down mindless activity. I do it while watching TV, listening to audio books, and before the semester ended I did it while studying for class. But honestly, I've always done thing that are tedious in video games and found them soothing haha. I spend hours power-leveling my team in every RPG I play, I would grind for rare items in World of Warcraft, I took the time to get every item in FFXIII and platinum the game for PS3. xD I guess I like boring "time-wastey" stuff.

                                            @Cheesecake: Congrats on the shiny mareep! I know I already said it, but I love it soooo much. *_*

                                            @TSE: I like seeing the contrast between new hunters and battle-worn ones as well! xD I'm glad this challenge brought us some newbies and even converted some to our club~ Hehe

                                            @SubVirus: Welcome! I think using a hacked ROM is fine as long as the chances of getting a shiny are the same~ Good luck. =D


                                            I've updated the challengers list. Let me know if I missed any accomplishments. :3
