      I better mention this, then: It's uncertain whether there will be forward compatibility to X/Y, with Pokémon transfers. They are having issues getting that to work, currently.

        Hopefully they will do something similar like the poketransfer, unless they start everything from scratch like in gen III and have to get most of the old pokemon in the global link and find some of them during normal gameplay and being some versión exclusives; of course we will have to wait until the game is finished or compatibilities are confirmed.

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

          I heard that DLC could be a possibility if they can't get transferring to work.

          This week's random hunt is... Bidoof! (Not exciting, but easier than most.)

            They HAVE to make it work, otherwise I'll be unable to battle competitively for a long time. (I don't want to train 6 pokemon into level 100 in X/Y, as I already have plenty level 100's atm)

            But I'll get over it when I see 3d SPARKLES!

              I'm back again! I've essentially hit the reset button on my shiny hunting and am only going to hunt for shinies in fourth gen since it seems to be the gen I have the most luck in, and I like seeing the shinies walk behind you in HG/SS. I reset my HeartGold so I can hunt for shiny starters, which I've been doing for a couple days now. I haven't been keeping track of my resets, but if I had to guess, I'd say I've done about 600-750 resets. (I did keep track for 200 resets before getting sick of keeping track)

                There are all the shiny pokemon I own and in the order I caught them.

                1. Koffing (SS) ??:??
                2. Ratatta (SS) 92:00
                3. Poliwhirl (D) 163:00
                4. Skarmory (D) 178:00
                5. Slowpoke (SS) 162:00
                6. Scyther (D) 245:01
                7. Steelix (D) 309:42
                8. Tentacruel (D) 311:34
                9. Paras (HG) 64:58
                10. Roselia (PLT) 81:14
                11. Gloom (SS) 234:18
                12. Psyduck (SS) 253:02

                Currently, I am hunting on HG, SS, and Diamond. Phase 2 in Victory Cave for my Diamond version. My target or desired pokemon here is Medicham. It might be my favorite 3rd generation pokemon and I have been on several other routes hunting it with no success. On HG, my hunt consists of Sneasel, Donphan, or anything else outside of Mount Silver. Finally, on my SS, I am hunting anything that resides in the Rock Tunnel. Cubone would be preferred but Geodude, Machop, Machoke, and Zubat are all great possibilities.

                  Well my latest hunt just hit 16384, or twice the average

                  @Eastwood2112 nice list, scyther is one that I would love (mainly to evolve to scizor).

                    Thanks! I might evolve it in the future. What are you hunting?

                      Some people prefer to leave their shinies as is. Not me though!

                      On my SoulSilver Shiny Hunters Challenge (link here:http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=301216) I am aiming for Mareep or Ekans on Route 32.

                      On HeartGold, am after a Nidoran (male or female, though sister has a shiny Nidoqueen and Nidoking is cooler anyway) or Growlithe on Route 36.

                        Cool challenge. Which shiny pokemon have you caught for the challenge so far? Mareep and Ekans are both ones I would be happy catching at some point. I prefer the male Nidoran too.

                          Yeah it is quite fun. Starter I got was Cyndaquil, wanted either him or Totodile so was happy with him.

                          Blasted through the first 3 gyms then spent AGES SRing for a shiny Dratini, and after almost 12k I found him! Both of them are fully evolved now.

                          The same day I got Dratini I blasted though and got the Red Gyarados. While he is a shiny, he doesn't count for the challenge and I am not using him.

                          It is still daunting, but a lot less so than a badgequest.

                            Just popping on, been distracted the last couple weeks, so no real hunting was done, so nothing to report.

                            Welcome to all new members!

                            Congratulations on all shiny catches!

                              MMing for Charmander....being rather slow, I keep getting distracted. I believe part of it is the big difference between Smeargle and Charmander hunts:
                              Smeargle: Oh man...i really wanted this shiny. I was willing to do whatever amount of work was needed.

                              Charmander: I'm only really doing this for the race....Shiny Charizard is amazing and all, but it's not a shiny I absolutely MUST have. It's more or less a bonus.

                              Also, an exciting update for future hunts:
                              I snagged an Italian Ditto off of the GTS Negotiations! So happy! I can now MM for anything, as long as I have one. After this Charizard, I'm thinking Spiritomb or Teddiursa. Possibly Lileep, but those are...near impossible to obtain.

                                Well just shy of 17k encounters and this guy showed up. Not my first or second choice, but still happy:

                                        Starters - catch 2 shiny starters
                                        Stones/trade - Catch 2 that evolve by stones or trade

                                          Nicely done! I've just started to get into chaining myself, with limited success. I guess practice makes perfect. I'm actually chaining as I type, working towards a shiny Marill. I'll keep y'all posted on my progress, as I just got to 40.

                                          Update: I broke my chain. Oops.

                                            I switched my hunt to Pattern Bush, and it's the first time since hunting shiny weedle in viridian that I've kept track of how many encounters I've done. With weedle I stopped counting at 6300. So far in pattern bush I've done 2800 encounters, which is the longest I've stuck with a hunt in a while. Hopefully I can keep track until I find one for once. XD Hoping for caterpie, spinarak, or Heracross, though I'd be happy with Ledyba too since Ledian is adorable. : )

                                                  Summer holidays at last!!! and I've finally completed my Black 2 version
                                                  Congratz to all people who have got new shinies recently.

                                                  I have a question. What do you guys find is the best method for hunting on more than 1 system (EG: Do a number of REs/Srs/Hatches on one system then on another, Do them all at once) etc. I'm curious as I'm not quite sure how to go about on hunting on mote than 1 system.

                                                  I've given myself a challenge to get at least 5 shinies during the holidays, I'm not going to chain unless it gets to the end of August and I've found jack squat. My targets for this are Dialga, Ralts and 3 secret targets.

                                                    IMO, definitely do at the same time. I find RE's are quickest. If you have 3 systems you can get pretty quick with practice, as there is always downtime while the battle is loading etc.
