    I'm curious to seee what your answers are. ^^
    Generation II: A Sentret (managed to get one already in Diamond, as my Silver erased itself along with both my Shiny Magikarp and Gyarados)!!

    Generation III: An Oddish (traded it to TwilightBlade)!!

    Generation IV: An adorable Budew (she's a Roselia right now)!! :D

    I also got a Darkrai (on Saturday)!! I was so happy, being my first Event that I attended and Event Pokemon I got myself!! :D Its Nature is Rash, and it never occured to me to Soft-Reset it for a Shiny because 1) Didn't know you could've and 2) I don't really like Shiny Legendaries (with the exception of few; Black Rayquaza, for example)!! Still nothing new on my Charmander Egg hunt... By the way, I've been hatching Eggs for 168 days as of today... Just something random I wanted to say!! Good luck to everyone on their hunts!! :D

      Nearing 6000 resets for registeel now, i hope it shows up soon -_-

      Lol, i'm currently reading through some of the shc's old posts, and i came across this awesome icon that ryan made sometime in 2006 *points at avatar* i know he hasn't been online for a long time but does anyone think he'd mind me using it as an avatar? (kinda directed more at fufu and/or metal mario here, or LDD)

          Good luck with chaining for Absol! It's such a beautiful shiny, definitely one of my top ten. I've been up at Route 213 to chain for Absol twice, and I sitll haven't gotten one with killer IVs, so I plan on chaining for more when it swarms again. The same goes for the shiny Spoink that I chained so long ago (though I haven't even trained Spoink and I managed to train Absol).

          Good luck, everyone.

            2nd: red gyrados, if that doesnt count than ratatta
            3rd: a shiny wingull, i shall never forget him, found it through sheer luck while going to sky pillar.
            4th: a geodude and ironically enough i found a shiny ponyta months later in the same patch of grass and which also happens to be the route where i chained my shiny bronzor. for me the luckiest route in sinnoh route 206.

              Man, am I glad I just did that IV battle! Of the two Starly I caught, the Hardy one had IVs 25/17/7/17/21/23, while the Hasty one (the one I was going to keep) had 2/3/9/1/4/15! D= I'm glad I caught that before I gave the good IV one away! +Speed nature or not there's no way the Hasty one can keep up with those IVs!

              In other news, I finally hatched a Modest Synchro Ralts (it only took me ... 12 EGGS ... WITH Synchronize! >=[), so I can begin chaining Seviper.

              @VenomX: I'm sure Ryan would be honoured at your use of that avatar. Gee, I didn't even remember it! :shocked:

                  MM, good luck getting your old shinies back. Spending my current SRing time on Treecko and Darkrai. I hope they come soon.

                      Ok, something really weird just happened to me.

                      First of all, Dunsparce are Swarming in my Pearl, so I decided I'd get one as a memento for my Gold days, and it was a challenge for me posted by that girl.

                      Not to be cocky, arrogant or anything but this is pretty easy compared to what I did a few days ago. :P
                      I'm testing the waters to see what I can and can't do.
                      That time I entered grass at the edge and it was by that girl trainer. It was a Dunsparce, but after I killed it, the Radar music wasn't going and the chain was broken, but it didn't say "The grassy patch remained silent...".

                      Talk about weird.

                      I only had 3 but now I gotta start all over again, again!

                      I better get it this time, I predicted I'd have 40 by now, it's really no sweat. It's just that the "80% perfect" deal got me again when I was going for the 31st.

                      edit:

                      *facepalm*
                      The same thing happened like last time.... only thing different was this time it was a Bibarel and last time it was a Meditite.

                      BREAKTIME.


                      edit 6:23 PM:

                      Too bad it's not going to make it to 40 again this time, either: Shiny patch with 4 to go. 3 to go after I catch this.

                      Don't breathe this.

                      edit:

                      Shiny Dunsparce Video


                      edit:

                      You guys need to post more lol. Where are all of those "new members"?

                      Well, I was distracted and lost the Dunsparce chain. The one I got was Impish and doesn't have Serene Grace. Just a stone's throw away from "garbage", but a shiny is a shiny so I'll add it to my collection.


                      Meanwhile, Snubbull is my Swarm Pokemon on Pearl........ *sigh* Same girl I've been talking about wanted me to get one for her. Just a normal one, but I decided to try for a shiny.

                      And on my first shot, I'm already just 2 Flamethrowers away from having 40 Snubbull.

                      I'M ON FIRE!!!

                      But I'll have to get the shiny one tomorrow, although I'm ecstatic, I'm tired and it's really late.

                        Wow lol, I haven't been here since Dec. 21st, '07 xD Heh Most know that I frequent SPPf though :p Anyways so the shinies that I've gotten since I last was here have been Uxie on Jan 13, Treecko after 7 months of SRing on Feb. 25th, Torchic on April 1st, and most recently Palkia on May 22nd after 6 months of sring x___x Yeah not much luck this year.

                        Right now I'm waiting for a Jpn Pearl that I ordered to come in, so that I can transfer the Darkrai from my imported Pokemon ranger 2 and start Sring for it. I'm Canadian and we didn't get the Darkai event as usual (Nintendo of Canada is useless) so this was the only way I could get one :p

                        In the meantime, I'm Sring for Combee in Honey trees and Kyogre on my Sapphire which I've been after since mid April.

                        Oh I see the current topic is 1st shinies in each gen:
                        2nd gen: Metapod from bug catching contest in Gold. I was playing on GB pocket with no color so I only saw it because of the ultra flashing shiny stars. (irony didn't win contest with it)

                        3rd gen: Registeel in my Ruby. Was at Niagara Falls on vacation with family, one day before my Birthday. Started to Sr for it while I sat on a rock waiting for my family to come out of the Maid of the mist ride. And even though I was playing on old GBA with no backlight, I managed to see the stars circle it after about 20 SRs. Long battle, finally had to master ball it :p

                        4th gen: Drifloon on Diamond. First SR target I went for on 4th gen. I sr for it since the first friday that rolled around after D/P's US release, then a week later right after we got home from watching Spider-man 3 in theatres, after midnight, the gold balloon appeared!

                            Really? Well, when it does swarm in your game, I hope you get some!

                            Good luck on Pachirisu, personally I'd go to Valley Windworks and have a Static Pokemon up front for maximum pwnage.



                            I hope Tangela swarms soon. ;.; I've been waiting on it for... forever.

                            I are hot.

                            It's not got Intimidate but it IS Adamant. Doesn't really matter to me. I'm gonna try to gather up 4 or 5 more.

                            I like the colors. That's it. One of them will probably end up as a Contest Pokemon. :)


                            Once I get these and get some trading done, I'm going after Gligar (or Gastly).


                            I could SR for Darkrai, but I want to finish rounding out my team.

                              Okay guys is it just me or do you also find that even though you have a repel on it just doesn't work? I'm sitting here chaining and then it gets broken by a wild pokemon when I know for sure there wasn't a wiggling patch of grass in that spot (I'm 100% positive because it's usually when I'm walking back and forth to reset my radar so I've already stepped in that square) So I go and double check that I have a repel on and it says I do >< It's rather annoying....anyways wanted to know if it's just me

                                more veteran members great, still resetting for mudkip and palkia i need more reset shinys 1 isnt enough. and congrats on dunsparce!
                                EDIT: make sure that your lead pokemon is not at a lower level than the wild one, or repel may not work.

                                  You have to have a Pokemon that's higher level than all of the wild Pokemon in the area you're chaining in for Repel to work.

                                  I.E. my Lucario is Lv. 95, nothing's going to disrupt that.

                                  I.E. My Noctowl is Lv. 21, higher than then Lv. 15 - 19 Lv. Pokemon that are in the Snubbull area.

                                  I.E., I was chaining Corsola, and forgot to switch my Lv. 50 Butterfree out for the Lucario after catching a shiny Corsola....

                                  There were Lv. 52 Pokemon around, so a Lv. 52 Golduck showed up vs. my lower level Butterfree, breaking the chain.

                                  If you're using a Synchronizer or a Static or anything else you need to have up front but it's lower level and sucks.... Faint it. Let something kill it, then flee, and then go to your area. Put your high-level chainer behind the dead Synchro which will be in the first slot.


                                  I hope I wasn't too confusing. Just make sure your lead Pokemon is higher level than all the Pokemon in the area or repel won't work.

                                  (Same level doesn't work either, gotta be 1 level higher)

                                  edit:

                                  lol, Graceful Assassin beat me to it and summed it up. :P At least I covered Static and Synchro!
                                  BTW, what's your "one shiny"?

                                  Thanks for the congratulations. :)


                                  (I also have 4 shiny Snubbull now, I need 1 or two more, then I gotta get ready to trade Pokemon with that girl to help her PokeDex)


                                  BTW GOOD LUCK

                                      Well, I got 6 shiny Snubbull in all, but..........


                                      I'm amazed.


                                      I saw the double shiny patch.

                                      TWO SHINY PATCHES AT ONCE.

                                      I wish I could've recorded it, but I wasn't expecting it.

                                      It was just.... wow.

                                        That is awesome dude, gratz on the 6 shinies as well as the double shiny patch, just today I was wondering to myself if it was realt

                                        Guys


                                        NEWS FLASH

                                        just now as I was trying to get a claydol on a chain, what do you know that pops up but a shiny Ponyta! Although it was from the radar there was not a shiny patch it was just a normal one and the chain was 0, so would this be considered a radar or random encounter? If it's the latter it was my first one since staraptor way back in december

                                        Guys

                                          just now as I was trying to get a claydol on a chain, what do you know that pops up but a shiny Ponyta! Although it was from the radar there was not a shiny patch it was just a normal one and the chain was 0, so would this be considered a radar or random encounter? If it's the latter it was my first one since staraptor way back in december

                                          lol, awesome! Wow, I can't decide on whether to call it random encounter or radar... There really was no chain yet.... but the grass still moved BUT there was no shiny grass.

                                          These kinds of things make me wonder how many shinies I've lost so far while chaining. :(


                                          Anyway, congratulations and good luck on your ... yeah. Lower evolution of Claydol chain. I forgot what they were called.
                                          I've encountered a few of them but decided on Bronzong instead. I'm not concerned about a Rapid Spinner yet (although it could use stuff like Earth Power and Ice Beam).


                                          edit:

                                          Oh yeah they're called Baltoy.

                                          Also.... didn't you used to have a shiny Buizel too?

                                            Well ironicly this was the one time I wasn't after a shiny. which just goes to show. I was gonna catch one Baltoy then breed it with a ditto I had just caught(I looked at it's characteristic then checked IVS and 30 attack) then once I get a relaxed one breed w/ everstone til I got a shiny baltoy. Its for a gimmick battle I'm gonna do with a guy in my clan, we use pokemon from every tier, including ubers

                                            well even though I can make shiny ponyta apear I can't do the same with baltoy so I just checked my pokedex and I've seen claydol so I'll go GTS one then breed it for shiny, later and good night

                                            Well, I got 6 shiny Snubbull in all, but..........


                                            I'm amazed.


                                            I saw the double shiny patch.

                                            TWO SHINY PATCHES AT ONCE.

                                            I wish I could've recorded it, but I wasn't expecting it.

                                            It was just.... wow.
                                            Wow, that must feel kind of awkward/bad. In one way, you have a shiny that you're about to get, but in another, there's that other shiny that you have to let go. Door number one, or door number two? xP Actually, I think the specific Pokémon you see is generated just as you walk into the patch, itself, so there isn't any difference. (I still have to test this theory. Save states don't work for DS in No$GBA, and I haven't even played that far on my M3 save.)

                                            I'd call that a random encounter. It didn't have the shiny patch "working its magic" on its stats, so it had to have been the plain ol' Random Pokémon Generator that made it shiny.

                                            Onto personal progress, I've finished EVing and have evolved my shiny Drifloon. I don't like that huge dark patch on Drifblim's back sprite. They should have made an "in between shade" for the shadowy parts there. I'm going for a kind of Calm Mind tank set for my Blim. His IVs are too atrocious for use in serious battles anyway! :P

                                                Hey all. Still sring for combee from yesterday's tree. Sr for 6 hours for it. Hoping one of my other slathered trees produces combee so I can keep it going after today :p Congrats to all new shinies! Heh I haven't chained a shiny since last US thanksgiving, when I got Skarmory. Not really a big chainer. Prefer to try and get them through SR or wild encounters if possible. There's things I am going to chain, but haven't gotten around to it. Main chaining targets are going to be Misdreavus once I beat pearl, and Metapod to avenge my lost one from Gold.

                                                Heh 5 shinies I had in 2nd gen were metapod, krabby, spearow, unown (V) and magikarp. Only need to get metapod and magikarp to completely avenge my lost shinies (stupid battery drying up). I'll also try and chain cacnea. Have one that I found on the used 2nd pearl I bought, but can't count it since no way to verify it wasn't hacked/cloned. Anyways congrats to new shinies and good luck MM on getting your shinies back!
