    Some people started hatching, not knowing what it was,
    And they'll continue hatching it forever just because,
    This is the hatching that never ends....


    Sorry I had to

      Hey Guys!
      I've never seen or obviously caught a shiny Pokemon yet throughout ANY of the games, but I have recently taken a "shine" to these new Pokemon.I would really love to join the Shiny Hunters and signed up on PC just to give it a shot!
      ~EDIT~
      Forgot to add that I'm gonna start my hunting with a Steelix!

        Greetings, Kurt! Welcome to PC and the SHC!

        A Steelix, huh? That's a pretty nice choice! Which game are you hunting it on, and through which method?

        Feel free to drop some updates or have a small chat with us while you're doing stuff in-game. It's great to talk about the goings of the hunts so we can all share our Shiny hunting spirit! Speaking of which...

        I'm still going at it, myself! Stuffing Nincada into five different boxes until they're full, then uploading them to Pokécheck to see their IVs, keeping any nice ones in the process.

        Look at this crazy guy! Too bad about the nature, but it's great for breeding. I now have that one along with this one for breeding. No Masuda, but those 31 IVs are popping out all the time.

        Good luck with your hunts, everyone! I'll be around.

          hi there and welcome to the club kurt: interesting target, i wonder if you're going to catch it as a steelix or catch an onix and evolve it.

          Looks like hatching has become popular recently, time to make those magma body pokemon work extra time. Speaking of hatching, i decided to hatch some eggs in hopes for a shiny; no shiny this time but at least it has 5 percfect iv's and the desired nature, the only problem, i don't know what to do with it since it has lots of potential. i would have liked it to be shiny so that it could have been jackpot and bonus. (game corner reference).

          Currently SRing in platinum, you can guess which is my target since there are Little amount to SR in platinum that are not roamers.

          Cya and happy hunting.

          I've been playing Voltorb Flip (almost to 450 coins) to get a Sandshrew. I plan to SR for it until I get a shiny one- I've taken a liking to shiny Sandlash.

          I lost one of my game systems recently- it's around the house somewhere -so I can't SR on Heartgold. I've been using the Pokeradar in the Trophy Garden, as well, in hopes of running into either a Pikachu with a Light Ball or a shiny Pokemon. I have yet to find either.

                Thanks for the warm welcome!
                With Steelix I'm going for a hunt in Soulsilver mainly because that is my favourite game with the two regions and all. I'm gonna go for the good old random encounter Onix & then evolve it :p

                  Hope you have a masterball in case you find a shiny geodude/graveller and it wants to self destruct...

                      Thankfully I have no stories like that. However I haven't been in a Safari Zone since Gen 1, other when needed in the storyline...

                        Welcome VI; i see you like league of legends.

                        People, when hunting for shinies that explode or selfdestruct, always have a pokemon with the damp ability, the most common and easiest to find i think its psyduck, and its typing is good agaisnt most of them i guess, just always have ítems to heal it and try to have it a high enough level where it can survive several hits while you try to catch your explosive target. Of course remember to have lots of different kinds of pokeballs as you can.

                          About to start a new hunt and what happens? My best mate rings me on Skype telling me he just restarted his Pokemon Black game. I asked him what the big deal about that was and he told me the first Pokemon he saw was a SHINY Patrat. Irony.

                            By first you mean before he had pokeballs? If so, that sucks....

                              Yup, the first Pokemon he saw WITH Pokeballs! He just sent me about 300 screenshots considering it's the first shiny he's ever seen. Also just a quick update I'm going to be focusing my search in Union Cave! Also when I {hopefully} get Steelix what game do you recommend keeping it in? Soulsilver? or should i put it in Black so it's in the lastest game?

                                you can send it to black if you are not planning to use it in SS, also make sure you teach it any move it can only learn in IV gen if you plan to use it in battling and depending on your strategy think what move would be useful to have; also consider the fact of EV berries and where you can easily EV train it, if it's easier to train in SS keep it there for some time until you have it fully trained and with the moves you want it to have, if you can easily train it in black, you can send it right away after you are sure it has at least the moves you want, like tutor moves, just in case you don't have bw2 where you can teach some tutor moves.

                                  I am a fan of the 4th Gen, so all mine are on HG. Once/if I get a copy of a 5th gen I will still probably keep on HG as I'm not that into the later ones. Unless you are into online/competitive battling put it on your favourite game

                                  Out of interest, why union cave? If it's Steelix you want you only have a 5-10% chance any given Pokemon will be an Onix, as opposed to some bits of Mt Silver where it hits 30%. Or the lower floor of Rock Tunnel has (maybe) cooler other Pokemon with still a 10% chance (IMO cubone+kangaskan are better than sandshrew+rattata). I assume you aren't that far through the game yet?

                                    I definitely take it to Black considering it's let latest game, thanks for all the tips such as the Move Tutor! You were right about me not having BW2 as that was the only game of the series I haven't played because i lost interest when it came out! Will defiantly take your words to actions though.

                                    Unfortunatly i whipped out my DS & I was chillin with Falkner. I may have to wait abit & go with the flow of the game for awhile

                                      Why not both?

                                      If you have (or can change to) WEP-based Internet encryption, you can make an account at Pokécheck, register your save file, upload your Shiny through their fakeGTS service and then queue it for download on Gen V. This way, you can have a golden Steelix being a super sweet guy following your character in Soul Silver while also having him in Gen V!

                                        Finally got to Union Cave, I'll try there for awhile & if i don't see many Onix's I'll continue to another cave-like area! Wish me luck! Pidgey Evolved :o Quick Question if anyone knows as well, is Rage worth keeping on Totodile for awhile?

                                          Can't say I've ever gotten much of a use out of Rage. It's reactive and takes a while to build up. May be alright if you have absolutely nothing else of value to overwrite it, though.

                                            Ok. I decided for sure that I'm going to wait until further down the track to hunt down this Steelix, considering the odds are 10% for a regular Onix in Union Cave, I'm gonna wait till Mt.Silver as they are at their peak of 30% of the Mountainside

                                              If you want Steelix then that is a good idea. Wonder who suggested that. Oh wait it was me

                                              Seriously, ANY increase is probably worth it given the huge odds we are dealing with.

                                                  I come to you guys with an intriguing matter, for I am curious to see what you all think about it on an individual level.

                                                  I am currently breeding two Nincada together, the male with a 31/31/00/31/31/31 IV spread and the female with a 31/31/17/31/31/31 IV spread. With a Power item equipped to the male and an Everstone on the female (she's the one with Lonely nature), this gives me very high chances of getting the ideal Shiny Shedinja (Lonely, X/31/0-12/X/31/31), once I do get a Shiny Nincada.

                                                  I am doing this without Masuda Method chances, since they're both my personally-bred Nincada. I've stomached through likely over 4000 eggs, now (I don't keep accurate track, personal preference).

                                                  I'll keep going like this until the end, even with the much lower chances - it's my sacrifice to increase my odds of a competitive Shedinja to the max, since it's pretty much the only Pokémon that can function with two max IVs (third in Sp. Def is very niche and isn't absolutely required).

                                                  Now, here's the gist of it, the point where I introduce a question for you guys...

                                                  I actually have two Japanese Dittos I'm not using in this:

                                                  1. I got it from the GTS ages past, but all of its IVs are bad;
                                                  2. I got it from Pokécheck. It's a 31/31/31/31/31/31 IV spread Ditto. Certainly legit and likely RNG'd.

                                                  Neither of them have the nature I want for the Shedinja.

                                                  At this point, replacing the male Nincada with the second Japanese Ditto would slightly lower the chances of the perfect Nincada, but it would dramatically increase the odds of a Shiny. Replacing it with the first would certainly tank the IVs, but you'd know you acquired it yourself via in-game means.

                                                  What would you do, personally?

                                                  - Would you use the second Ditto, since you've gotten to a point where the full max IVs don't make a difference?
                                                  - Would you use a specific Ditto, or either Ditto, since the primary objective is getting a Shiny, even risking the desired IVs?
                                                  - Would you not use the Ditto because you didn't earn it via trading and/or because a downloaded Ditto feels illegal?
                                                  - Would you not use the Ditto to squeeze the maximum IV potential out of it?

                                                  Lastly, disregarding the legality of the second Ditto:

                                                  - Would you in any way feel bad about getting the Shiny with the second Ditto as a parent?

                                                  I have been rather intrigued over my personal thoughts and determinations on this and would like to see your thoughts, as well.

                                                  Thanks for reading and have a nice time hunting!
