    Randomly decided to grab my SP and boot-up LeafGreen before getting out of bed this morning. I was planning to have 100 encounters before getting up and was pleased to find this in under 50:



    Shiny Furret is the cutest, so I chucked my Master Ball to be safe (as my SP has a nasty habit of randomly shutting-off sometimes). I named her Uno because Sentret was the first Pokémon I ever caught back when I started playing in 2000, but I'm thinking about changing it to Noa.

    I just finished EV-training her (sadly not finding any additional Shinies in the process). Now I'm thinking about restarting HeartGold or SoulSilver and transferring her to follow me around.

      I have had an exceptionally lucky couple of hours Shiny Hunting.

      Whilst levelling up Sylvan my Shiny Sylveon with Cute Charm I ran into Emerald the Shiny Female Pelipper in Poni Grove. She has an Impish Nature and completely random Shinys are always nice.

      Levelled up I headed off to Wela Volcano Park and after 123 SOS Calls with Shiny Charm I found:

      Risky the Shiny Female Salandit- My reaction was:

      Wild Salandit appears. It has a White Body.
      'Is that a Female...It is. It is.'

      I KOed the non Shiny, switched to Lilligant to put the Shiny to sleep. Threw a Timer Ball (Which goes well with Shiny Salazzle) and caught.

      Risky has a Mild Nature with perfect IVs in Attack, Special Attack, Speed and Special Defence and the Corrosion ability. So it will be a Salazzle that hits very hard but cannot take a hit whatsoever. Very fitting considering her 'Somewhat Vain' characteristic.

      Very pleased to get this very nice Shiny on the first try. Even with the Cute Charm the chance of a Male Shiny Salandit is high.

        Hello everyone and Congrats on new shinies.
        Sorry for the long hiatus, but I still hunt from time to time.
        So here is my update



        Spoiler:
        The story behind this one: well, i was originally hunting for anorith but decided to switch to another hunt after cleaning my 3ds and ds lite, I went back to route 101 and started hunting for poochyena with the dexnav, i got everything prepared with my synchro adamant ralts and max repels, fainted it and left it in the first spot so that the ability was kept active and my next pokemon ready to KO non shiny pokemon, i was in a good chain when suddenly breaks because of a wild pokemon even with max repel active. I forgot max repel only works if the first pokemon in the party is of a higher level than the wild pokemon, even if it is fainted, so had to reset and activate the white flute, my ralts is level 3 btw, so now pokemon are now to appear at level 1 mostly, max 2. Then again I made a good chain, left my 3ds running while checking some stuff and when I noticed the red flashing light of running out of power, tried to close it to safe the last amount of energy, but it was to late, so had to recharge it to full power again, update, and then start from my last save point. Fortunately I had everything set up so I start the dexnav search, nothing..., move around for a patch of grass to move, It appears and I go in to start the chain, and guess what, the game turned off again... Lol just kidding, on this first patch it appeared this handsome poochyena :), easy catch on first premier ball, named it custos "latin for guardian", sleep talk egg move, level 1 because of white flute, quirky nature (the synchro failed), and with the quick feet ability.


        I'm planning to use him for my adventure in Omega Ruby.

        Well, that's it for now, see you around and happy hunting.

          On March 24th I found a shiny Metang in 672 fs encounters. Will evolve to Metagross.

          On April 4th I started a fish chain for Shellder #2 but got a 15th Skrelp at 88.
          I also got Vanillite #6 in 301 hordes that day.

          On the 6th I found a second shiny Venomoth in fs in 326 encounters. Then I had my first ever back to back shiny when Seviper appeared one encounter later. Seviper was the target.

          Today I found my first shiny Sawk in fs looking for Hariyama. I have 6 shiny Throh’s lol. It was 183. Then I found Hariyama 35 encounters later.

            Hi, I am relatively new to shiny hunting (I started last year December), and I would like to join the club.
            My current shinies are: Golem, Umbreon, Gallade, Koffing, Torchic, Treecko, Spiritomb, Ponyta, Slugma, Dwebble, Hariyama and the less valued red Gyarados.
            Currently, I am trying to hunt a shiny Croagunk.

              Recently got all 3 regis in only 2 days of hunting. It's amazing since they're my favorite trio of any pokemon games, since I started out in Emerald. Currently going for Heatran in Ultra Sun then Groudon. After that who knows.

                9th I found shiny Snorunt #2 in 421 encounters. Plan to evolve
                10th I found shiny Teddiursa #3 in 31 encounters, then #4 in 65

                        Hey everyone!

                        I’m new posting here and new to shiny hunting in general. I have been seeming to have some trouble in ORAS. I started a new game and decided to start shiny hunting before the first gym (I’m playing through at the same time as someone who is completely new to Pokémon so I want to stay with them so I am killing time by shiny hunting). I am using the dexnav and I found a shiny Zigzagoon on my 100th encounter, so I figured it wouldn’t take too long to get another. I’m currently hunting Whismur and am nearing 900 encounters and am wondering if I am doing something wrong or if anyone has some insight into something that could make this make a little more sense.

                        Thanks and I hope to post on this forum in the future with the shinies I eventually get!

                          Shiny odds for Dexnav without shiny charm is 1/512. I’ve done over 100 dexnav hunts without shiny charm. Most appear before 512. I’ve had 3 go over 1,000.


                          I usually start each hunt with a search level of 1, I heard a search level of 999 makes odds lower. I don’t know if thats true. One of my early shinies, Heracross, appeared with a search level of 7.

                            Huh,

                            Would it be better for me to horde hunt in this stage of the game since I don’t have money to buy repels? I feel like horde hunting is getting me encounters faster but it has a lower chance of them being shiny right?

                              Personally, I would just say it's whatever you feel is best for you. I never had much luck with Dexnav, so I've always used hordes for hunting. It's all up to personally preference.

                                In my experience Dexnav shinies tend to appear before 1,000 encounters. And thats without the SR being 999.

                                And horde shinies tend to pop up before 2,000. I’ve only had 1 go past 3,000 I believe and I’ve probably found 100 shinies via hordes.

                                I’ve had maybe 40-50 dexnavs and horde shinies appear before 200. I don’t know the exact amount.

                                What they said is true, i personally believe dexnav has better odds without shiny charm then hordes. But some Pokemon are only available in hordes.

                                  I just had the worst of good luck, I found a shiny Zigzagoon at the beginning of this game when training my Pokémon via hordes. After continuing on in the game and getting to Lilycove city I just turned my game on and ran into the grass and found a shiny Linoone. Of course the first completely random shiny I find is the same as the only other shiny I have.

                                    After the 5% Route 6 Kecleon I moved back to Santalune Forest.

                                    I previously found a shiny Caterpie and a shiny Panpour here. Caterpie and Weedle were my targets and I am in X.

                                    Yesterday at 4,204 random encounters I found shiny Weedle. I’m now done with the line and the forest. Also lucky I got both shinies I was hunting in the first 3 phases.
