    @Janske - congrats - my Dratini took twice as long almost, but that is just my luck.

    @brickbusterx - congrats on Mareep, that would have been my second preference on the route I was looking on.

    @cheesecake - congrats on another Spearow and commiserations on Caterpie.

    Now that is all taken care of....

    So found this guy, not my first or second choice but still happy:

    Spoiler:


    Now up to lvl 22 and evolved. Have beaten Clair and just picked up the extremespeed Dratini. Ready to do the whole Lugia garbage then demolish the league.

    Game progress update:

    Shines: 3 (4 if counting Red Gyarados)
    Badges: 8

      Before I join this challenge, I have a question. You know how in the games when deciding to choose your starter Pokémon, you can see the sprite of the Pokémon? Well in which games can you tell if the starter Pokémon is shiny before actually choosing it? It will just make it easier for me to get a shiny starter. I'm obviously not much of a shiny hunter. Anyways, thanks in advance.

        AFAIK - HG and SS are the easiest - as the sprites are shiny.

        Ones where you have to take it and then check them:
        Ruby/Saphire/Emerald
        FireRed/LeafGreen
        Diamond/Pearl/Platinum
        Black/Black2/White/White2

        I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong. HGSS are definitely correct as I got my shiny Cindaquil on SS that way.



        On another note...

        WOOT - just beat the Champion!

        Spoiler:


        Feels great! Next step, try and beat Red with just these 3 (or more if I find more). Gulp.....

        I believe I updated for everyone, yell at me if I missed you.

        I haven't had a lot of free time lately, so I've been scarce, sorry! I only have about 5000 REs on my next shiny but I've been fighting to level my Infernape...... I think he's level 60 without having even fought the first gym. LOL :X

              Can we trade in shinies from our other saves?

                I'm totally want to do this challenge, but I won't officially be able to start until I go on vacation on Sunday. I think it's about time I did some major shiny hunting, but I hope I don't lose patience first.

                  I believe everything has been updated! Make sure you're updating your posts with a summary letting me know how many shinies and how many badges you have.

                  Congrats on completing the challenge Paulthagerous!

                  @Chuckleslucifer: Trading shiny pokemon from other games is not allowed, you can play however you want but the first rule is soft resetting for your first shiny!

                    I am going to drop out of this challenge. It was a while ago when I joined and I never got a shiny starter. So if you want, take me out of the list.

                      And I think I'm gonna opt for a full shiny team for the Elite 4.

                        Updated the list!

                        Been chugging along a little myself with no shinies but with school having started it's hard to justify playing too much. Hope everyone else is having some luck!

                          Sorry, but this thread hasn't been posted in since November of last year. In Challenges, a thread that hasn't been posted in for two months or more is considered dead. You are free to restart this challenge if you'd like though!
