      ANYWHO. I managed to soft reset myself a Shiny Fennekin!

      It only took a few hours total, but it was totally worth it.
      Congrats! That is a cool one to have!

      Nice! And they have a high step count so must have been slow going!


      Anyway, managed to snag my 5th legendary for the month:

        Some nice Shinys everyone has been finding. :)

        My new Shinys

        Alpha Sapphire - Helena

        Shiny Male Barboach (Moby) - Found by Chain Fishing in Mt Meteor. Now a Shiny Whiscash. Not a great Shiny in truth but one for the Dex.

        X - Stephanie

        Two Male Remoraid - Found whilst looking for Clamperl near Shalour City.

        Shiny Male Gulpin (Jacques) - Found by DexNaving Skiddo. I ran into the wrong part of Grass breaking my chain but the little blue blob was waiting there. Caught with a Great Ball and now a Swalot. I really like the colouring here. Great Shiny. :)

        Yay!



        Also caught another Wailmer which I'm going to evolve into Wailord and a Carvanah. I wanted a shiny Sharpedo because they look really cool but was actually shocked when shiny Carvanah appeared, must not have seen one before because wasn't expecting those colours!

          Nice! I never seem to have any luck with finding shinies in hordes. I seem to have more luck with SR's and breeding. xD

          Wow! Your luck with the Gulpin sure made up for the chain breaking, lol.
          I reaally like the blue on Swalot for some reason. :o

            Congratulations on your first horde Shiny. Spinda is a very unique Shiny to have due to the numerous Spot variations.

            Pokémon with Gender differences (Such as Milotic and Cacturne) are also good for that reason but not as unique as Spinda.

            Carvanha is indeed a much different Shiny to his original colour scheme. His evolved form Sharpedo (I have 2 Shiny Males) is one of the few Pokemon that can pull off Magenta. :)

            Congratulations on your Shiny Starter. I have a Shiny Fennekin but mine was from a trade.

            My reaction to Shiny Gulpin was unusual...

            Ah, It's Gulpin...wait it's blue. Yay!

            Shiny Swalot is indeed a nice Shiny it reminds me of the blue Ghost from Pac-Man.

              Nice, I really like my spinda :)

              So I went back through my Y and realised that I could use 2 Wingulls and a Weepinbell I got from hordes earlier this year towards the yearly quest. Not sure why I thought they were last year, but that's OK.

              That leaves me 2 more required for the yearly quest - another bug and a 3 stage water. So I was rushing through the Delta Episode and surfing to Rayquaza and BOOM - shiny tentacool! Pretty happy, though a 3 stager would have been even better :)

              So now, going to try and Masuda the last 2 I need - a Caterpie and a Maril are what I am going for!

                I tried DexNaving for a Shiny Petilil on one of the Mirage Islands.

                I had two lengthy streaks of about 70 and one of about 140. No Shiny. I took a break...

                Then went back looking for a Petilil with Egg Move Healing Wish. 2 Dexnav Encounters in and a search level of 216:


                I named her Jessica (After my Unova Grass Monotype Petilil). She has a Jolly Nature. I have evolved her into a Lilligant, maxed her Affection Stat and have won all the Hoenn Contests with her.

                I now have my favourite Grass-type in Shiny Form. :)

                Next Hunt - Cottonee in Alpha Sapphire

                  Yes! Yes! Yes!

                  It took 426 encounters to get this one and a current streak of around 130.

                  She is Level 12 with a Naive nature and Prankster ability. I have named her Belle as the Evolved form Whimsicott reminds me of a Southern Belle. :)

                  I really like the way this Shiny looks the orange and green go together really well. I plan to evolve it into Whimsicott once it has learnt the required moves and I find a Sun Stone.

                  I plan to use her in Contests.

                  Next Hunt - Misdreavus on Route 114.

                  That is awesome! I'm currently breeding Eevees to practice breeding and hoping that one of them will turn out shiny

                    To me it looks more lilac, but an uncommon color regardless. Not sure if I want to evolve it or not....

                    Congrats, and good luck with your next hunt!

                    With my 2 Masuda hunts, I was a little surprised that Maril popped up on egg #91 (though I did a LOT of Maril eggs back in May, so if you count those it took a little longer :

                    Spoiler:


                    And while I was continuing on OR with the Caterpie hunt, on AS I was wondertrading off my marils and someone sent me this (presumably hacked) shiny with an interesting name...

                    Spoiler:


                    So I don't think I can count the wurmple for the yearly quest, but that's fine as I don't want to anyway. Just 1 more to go until my region is complete!:
                    Spoiler:

                    Tier I:

                    1) Find three shiny Pokemon who could serve as starters. All three must have three evolutionary stages:
                    One must be a Grass-type,
                    one must be a Fire-type,
                    and one must be a Water-type.
                    2) Find a shiny legendary!

                    1G) Hoppip
                    1F) Torchic
                    1W) Maril
                    2) Regigigas


                    Tier II:

                    3) Find a shiny Normal-type with one evolution. It must be able to learn an HM move!
                    4) Find a shiny Water-type!

                    Big question is: if you do get a shiny one, which eevelution do you go for? Or leave it as is?

                      Got it! :)

                      Got her on a Dexnav encounter level of 176 with a streak of about 50. Caught her in a Critical Capture Quick Ball.

                      I have named her Esmeralda. She has a Hardy Nature and Curse.

                      During the chain I was encountering far more male Misdreavus than female. I am very pleased to get a female as for me Misdreavus is a feminine looking Pokemon.

                      I love the Green and Orange on this Shiny. I am not sure of the Green Shade on Mismagius' shiny. I may leave Esmeralda as a Misdreavus.

                      I now have my favourite Ghost Type in Shiny Form.

                      Next Hunt - Buneary in The Safari Zone.

                          Yay!

                          This one took a while to get. First I had a Chain of around 450 encounters and random odds being random no Shiny.

                          Then I had a Chain of exactly 100 and on the 100th encounter at a search level of 535... Shiny Buneary.

                          She is female (Yay for Gender luck), Level 59 with a Naive nature and Fake Tears Egg Move. I plan to use her in Contests as she learns Healing Wish as a Level Up. When she evolves I will use the Lopunnite.

                          The Buneary line is a Shiny I have wanted for a while now and it is a bonus she is female.

                          Other Shinies

                          Shiny Male Cottonee - From the GTS for a Tornadus. A great Shiny and nice to have a second Shiny Cottonee.

                          Shiny Female Espeon - From a Wondertrade Giveaway. I like the Green Colour here. Reminds me of Carbuncle from the Final Fantasy Games.

                          Shiny Male Skitty - For a random Delibird on the GTS. The Red colouring is nice but I plan to evolve him into Delcatty which is an excellent Shiny.

                          Shiny Female Delibird - From a giveaway on this very forum. The Purple colour works really well here. :)

                          Next Hunt - Lotad on Route 102.

                            I've entered Challenger's Cave in Black to begin hunting for shiny Sableye, although I expect this to take a while, what with the 1/81920 chance and all! {XD}

                            Huge congrats to Paulthagerous, CharmedGardy, and Spoonacross for, like, a gazillion shinies over the past month!!! You guys have really been tearing up the shiny trail - way to go!

                            It's now December, the best month of the year! You know what that means...

                            The December Monthly Quest: The Frozen Tundra!!

                            To complete this Quest, you must find three shinies:

                            1) An Ice-type shiny!
                            2) A Grass-type shiny!
                            3) A Normal-type shiny!

                            Completing this Quest within the time allotted will give your region official recognition of having a slippery Frozen Tundra!!!!!!! The Frozen Tundra is even outfitted with an elevator to reach the lower Frozen Tundra depths, and a Normal-type Pokemon is hiding in the elevator!

                            Complete this Quest to make your region really cool! ^_^

                            Chained and Safari Pokemon are not eligible to count for the Quest.

                            The contest lasts until midnight EST on January 7th, 2016.

                            Good luck and have fun!

                            I bought yet another copy of Pokemon X because I didn't feel like restarting my other ORAS/XY files for soft resetting starters/legendaries/etc.

                            ANYWHO. I managed to soft reset myself a Shiny Fennekin!
                            Spoiler:


                            It only took a few hours total, but it was totally worth it.
                            Welcome back! I had no idea Shiny Fennekin looked so awesome! And I totally understand the effort going into SRing one. I have over 4000 SRs for Froakie, and those things take forever!!!! Each SR feels like so many minutes, so finally getting one is a huge accomplishment. Congrats!

                            Good luck! Are you going to use Everstones to breed down the Natures you want, or are you going to surprise yourself with getting a random Nature?

                            Using shinies in contests is a really good idea! I hadn't thought of that, but imagine the looks on the faces of the crowd when they see an amazing shiny show up on stage! :pink_disbelief:

                            Dude, that's amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats!!!!!! Way to go - you're truly an incredible shiny hunter - a legend in our midst! You've completed the Yearly Quest with a whole month to spare!!

                            If anyone has any suggestions or ideas about next year's Quests, feel free to post here in the thread for discussion or message me! Did you guys like the tier system? Were the Monthly Quests good targets, or was getting three shinies in a month too much/too little? Feel free to let me know what you felt and we can talk about improving the format for next year if anyone has any suggestions or changes they'd like to see!

                              Thanks, though really if anyone is leaving the yearly one this late they will need some good luck!

                              Tier system was cool, but I know for me shiny hunting is seasonal due to motivation and real life, so maybe not 3 per month. Here is my idea for next year (feel free to modify of course!):

                              Yearly Quest - Gotta Catch Em All - Catch 30 (1 Box full) shiny Pokemon - No Chaining/FS
                              OR
                              Catch 60 (2 Boxes) - Chaining/FS allowed

                              And instead of monthly quests, do quarterly quests (3 months each) where you have to make a team of 6 with some theme:
                              • All same type
                              • All different types
                              • Same as a Gym Leader/E4 (If they had a team of 6 they in any of the games - including rematch)
                              • All 3 stages
                              • All megas
                              • All one stages
                              • All evolve with stones
                              etc

                                Hooray!

                                I was Dexnav Chaining for a Shiny Gothita and on a Chain of about 280 Shiny Female Ralts appears.

                                Now a Shiny Female Ralts is a Shiny I have wanted for a long time but since I wasn't actually looking for one I did not see if it had notorious Shiny losing move Memento or Teleport. The Ralts was at Level 28 and whilst I did not see the sparkles the blue colour was unmistakable.

                                I looked in the bag and I had no Quick Balls. I threw an Ultra Ball, 3 shakes and out it popped. The Ralts then used Calm Mind. My Pokémon Azumarill was out of moves and I didn't want to risk switching my Hypnosis Gardevoir in and maybe missing with said move...

                                Knowing I didn't want to lose a Shiny form of my favourite Pokemon (Gardevoir) I threw my Master Ball. Turns out the Ralts did not have either Memento or Teleport in her Moveset...

                                I named her Rebecca, she has a Naive Nature and three perfect IVs (Atk, SpDef, Speed)

                                I maxed her Affection and won every Hoenn Contest with her as well as getting her into the Hoenn Hall of Fame at Level 85.

                                For me Shiny Mega Gardevoir may well be the best Shiny in the entire game and it is great I have one I caught myself. :)

                                Shiny Female Lotad(Lola) - Found DexNaving on Route 102 on a Chain of 130. The Purple colour of the Shiny surprised me. She is now a Shiny Ludicolo which is actually a Great Shiny. I like the Green Contrasts here.

                                Next Hunt - Shiny Gothita (So far 550 Dexnav Encounters and counting)

                                    I hit a stroke of luck on WonderTrade earlier this week, with 3 shinies! Milotic, Chespin, and Flareon!

                                    In terms of shinies I obtained on my own, I got a Zubat in a horde encounter, a Barboach by chain fishing, and a Ivysuar in a Friend Safari!

                                    I am content.
