I gave up Shiny Hunting in Silver, so I drowned my pain in Horde hunting and got a Shiny Murkrow. Also hatched a Shiny Dedenne in Sun!

    Pure insanity. I've played a significant amount of Gen. II over the years and, up until the Virtual Console release, had only found four Shinies total in these games. This is the sixth Shiny I've found in VC Gold in under a month! O_O



    Not just that, but all the Shinies I've found are Pokémon that I've never found on any game with full-odds. LUCKY!

      I've been busy battling and trying to find traders for ashs pikachus that I never checked these other topics buuuut

      My pride and joy is my Charizard I hatched in Omega ruby then EV trained and Move Tutored it for battle, it fell short because of IVs BUT THANKK YOU S/M for HyperTraining because now he's my main compadre I bring him with every battle. Whether or not I use him is a different story.

      Currently hunting Mareanie, that elusive mon.

        Hello! I have a bunch of shinies in my Pokemon Moon game. I don't remember them all off the top of my head, but here's a few:
        Gardevoir
        Primarina
        Umbreon
        Decidueye
        Goodra
        Zubat
        Delibird
        Grubbin
        Toucannon
        Buneary
        Lycanroc (Midday form)

        ...All I can remember atm. XD Every single one of them, I bred or encountered via SOS chain myself. ^^ Oh, except a shiny Hypno my boyfriend traded me.

        Currently I am starting a new game in Pokemon Sun and I plan to do some shiny hunting in it as soon as I finish the story + dex! I'm super excited. c:

        Also can't wait to fill out the dex in the new USUM game I get! (I haven't decided on Sun or Moon yet.)

        Oh, since it says to say what I'm currently hunting... Currently breeding Miniors in Pokemon Moon and soft resetting for Totodile in HeartGold. :)

          Its been awhile and I've found 19 more shinies. All through friend safari and hordes.

          For hordes I've found 2 more Nidoran males, 2 more Stunky, also a second Aron that will be a Lairon. The 8th Nidoran male actually took 2,152 hordes to appear then the 9th was 46 hordes later.

          For Friend Safari I found Floette, Grumpig, Bergmite, Metang, Whirlipede, Eevee, Ledyba and Sandile. The Metang caught in 2 balls on half health and asleep.

          In addition I got a ton of duplicate shinies including 2 Audino, Mawile, Delibird, Kakuna and Togepi.

            Finally! I just now hatched a Shiny Wurmple!

            So, the reason why I wanted the Shiny Wurmple so badly. My best friend and I have a joke about Wurmple. He hates Wurmples, but masks his hatred as sarcastic admiration for Wurmple. So I wanted to breed a shiny Wurmple and level it up to 100 without evolving it and give it to him as a joke gift.
            Now I must grind this shiny Wurmple 100 levels as fast as I possibly can! :P

              Ok something insane just happened to me. It might be rarer then finding 2 shinies in one horde. But 2 shinies appeared in 2 games at the same time.
              I like to double hunt, FS in Y and Horde hunt in X. I've been in a Friend Safari for awhile now looking for Hoothoot and was horde hunting for Gulpin, I previously got a Scraggy at 235 hordes yesterday.


              Today on encounter 1,615 FS encounters and 542 hordes, at literally the same time, 2 shinies appeared. Will evolve both.

              I also got my first shiny in Pokemon Go earlier today, a Magikarp.

              I dexnaved for shiny Linoone and got it at 563 on Halloween.

                Hello all, I am back after a hiatus with playing (RL issues).

                I got a shiny wingull last night on my ORAS! I was playing a shiny nuzlocke challenge before I quit playing for a while, but I got this guy yesterday when I picked my games back up.

                      Spent all week trying to hatch a goddang shiny Solosis for my ultrasun team, in X&Y. Nothing all week.
                      Gave up to spend an hour breeding the other ~regular~ dudes I wanted, including a Larvesta. After the first egg realising he was 10,500 steps, decided to be careful with how many eggs I bred/hatched. 8th egg - shiny larvesta, and he was perfect with 4 max ivs I wanted. Pretty stoked cause omg shiny volcarona is beautiful, but also mildly furious lmao

                      10/10 still working towards that shiny reuniclus called Jellybean~

                        here are some shinies i got during the past 2 months:
                        Haina Dessert:
                        4/9 and 12/9 caught 2 Trapinches through SOS call
                        5/9 and 7/9 caught 2 Sandiles through soft reset as i hate to deal with embargo and some of its moves
                        Mount Lanakila:
                        12/9 and 13/9 caught 2 Sneasels and got both females
                        14/9 caught Glalie through SOS call
                        Tapu Village:
                        17/9 caught a snorunt with SOS call
                        19/9 caught Absol through SOS with less than 20 encounter after second try
                        Thrifty Megamart:
                        21/9 caught Haunter
                        22/9 caught klefky
                        Route 15:
                        26/9 caught my third Slowpoke, going to evolve it to Slowking
                        Route 16:
                        6/10 caught Pelipper. dealing with its Flling was really hard to not make it struggle
                        Ula-ula Meadow:
                        8/10 caught Ledian through SOS
                        Route 17:
                        9/10 accidentally caught Goomy while trying to SOS pancham
                        9/10 finally caught Pangoro. never thought to get the evolution before
                        Seafolk Village:
                        10/10 caught (again) fully evolve one, a Wailord through SOS call
                        Poni Wild:
                        15/10 caught Rellicanth with some trouble on its call rate and fishing rate
                        15/10 caught Tentacruel through SOS
                        17/10 caught Lumineon, its Aqua Ring was no big deal
                        28/10 caught Lapras. probably the most annoying hunt with so much complicated preparation and anxiety if it used Perish song
                        31/10 caught Wailmer through soft-reset method as i was afraid to get another Wailord if i went through SOS
                        Ancient Poni Path:
                        18/10 caught Exeggcute through SOS
                        30/10 caught Gastrodon through SOS
                        Vast Poni Canyon:
                        2/11 caught Golbat
                        5/11 caught Boldore
                        6/11 caught Dragonair as i was aiming for Dratini instead
                        7/11 caught Machoke
                        7/11 caught a Murkrow

                        breeding:
                        2/9 got 2 Misdreavous while looking for its 6 IV for shiny breeding
                        12/9 got an Eevee from leftover for its 6 IV breeding
                        19/9 got a Cubone from breeding leftover
                        27/9 got a Gooomy from breeding leftover
                        30/10 got a Vanilite from the first batch egg

                        i think my shiny Island Quest will likely to end as there are only 4 areas to go. going to soft-reset for Type Null and Porygon after the quest over. and going to do the most hardest quest, Breeding for shiny, after all was done.

                          I just now hatched a shiny Cleffa as the second egg, I literally just now started breeding Cleffas. It's officially the fastest I have ever gotten a shiny unintentionally through breeding. Named her Greeny Genie.

                          You might be in this for a while if you're not lucky. Still, 5 boxes is only 150 eggs, which is still way below the odds.

                          At least you're not me yet. 41¼ boxes since the last shiny (male) Poochyena and nothing yet.
                          I just want a shiny female Mightyena lol.

                          I've chained a Shiny Stufful and I've been on Grubbin for 2 days, still no Shiny :(
                          But I did get a Shiny Lilipup in a random encounter, which haven't happened to me in ages!

                            On the 5th I found a second shiny Trapinch which I will evolve into Vibrava. It was 1,063 fs encounters.

                            On the 7th I found my 10th male shiny Nidoran at 948 hordes.

                            I’m currently hunting for a female Nidoran shiny via horde or egg. I’ve hatched 765 eggs so far and I’m at 1,066 hordes after the last shiny Nidoran male.

                            Does anyone know the percentage for the female? I know the Geodude in Makuhita horde is 7% since its in the 35% horde and I’ve gotten 2 of those, the Nidoran hordes are 65% so it must be higher then 7%...

                            YAY

                            Okay so I've been breeding for shiny female Poochyena for a really long time now. I took a lot of long breaks though so it's not like I hatched over 10,000 eggs for it or anything.
                            Someone traded me a Mightyena with a bunch of egg moves, and I caught a female Poochyena in a Love Ball in my copy of SoulSilver, so I could have it in a Love Ball and with all those egg moves.

                            A while ago I eventually hatched a shiny, and I got excited, but it was male. Not to be sexist against my Pokémon or anything, I just specifically want a female because of reasons.
                            I didn't care to keep it so I gave it away to a friend and continued breeding more.

                            Then like, a month and a half ago, on October 1st, I was breeding more Poochyena, and I got a shiny again. Got excited again, and of course it had to be a male. Like the previous one, I gave it away to a friend, and I went back to breeding more of them.
                            My motivation was really running out, so I took breaks for a while and didn't really touch it again for like 2-3 weeks.

                            I started doing it again recently, and so far, since the previous shiny male... if I counted right, it's been a little under 48 boxes, or around 1437 more eggs. I never wrote down anything to keep track of it, but if I remember where the previous shiny male was in my boxes correctly, then I think that's about right. Give or take 30 because I can't remember exactly if it was in Box 19 or 20.

                            Those ~1437 eggs later, I hatched a shiny female. Finally. 1/683 my butt.



                            Spoiler:
                            Two eggs later, though...



                            Yup. A friend and I joked about this and it actually happened, lol. Two shinies within the same batch of 5, only two eggs apart.
                            I guess that makes up for going just a little bit over twice the odds, lol.

                            It's probably a good thing, to be honest. The first one was Bold nature which lowers Attack. I would have taken it regardless, but the second one doesn't have an Attack-hindering nature, so I might as well take it if I have it, haha.
                            (I don't use Everstone while breeding because I prefer to let nature do its thing rather than forcing it. That way my Pokémon truly have their own personality, and I will love them no matter what.)

                            I don't know if I'll keep both yet.


                            November 13th... who said that 13 was unlucky?
                            I'm finally freeeeeeeee! I can stop doing this and move on!

                            I don't think I'll be keeping all four of those egg moves as-is, but it's nice to have them all in the relearn move slots so that I can swap in and out between Fangs whenever I feel like I want something different.
                            Glad she ended up having Run Away too. That way she has Intimidate once she evolves instead of Quick Feet. Yuck, Quick Feet!

                            (I have 4060 eggs hatched in total on my save, but I know around ~1000-1100 of them were from when I was breeding for a shiny Seel for a friend, and a handful more were from various other breeding. So I guess it probably took me around 2900-3000 eggs just to get shiny female Poochyena.)

                              I found a full odds random encounter shiny Volbeat while gathering eggs in front of the daycare on the 11th. Kind of wish it was a Pokemon I didn't have but I only had my Flame Body Talonflame on me so luckily it caught in a Quick ball. That's my 3rd random encounter shiny in Y.

                              Today I finally had the Unown cave in OR again, I found a shiny B in 73 Dexnav's, my first initial. Then 11 Dexnav's later I found shiny C.

                                  I was bouncing between Burmy and Lickitung hunts when this popped-up yesterday:



                                  Not one of my current hunts, but I actually really like Magnemite! I remember as a kid daydreaming of having one IRL. Why haven't they made a remote-controlled flying Magnemite toy yet? >:I

                                  Since I found it a day before release, I'm very tempted to use it as my main for my Ultra Sun play-though (I should be getting the game later today). I might evolve it into Magneton, but definitely not Magnezone. (I don't hate Magnezone, but I enjoy the simplicity of the earlier stages more. Also, Pokémon Snap.)

                                  EDIT: Now on Ultra Sun!

                                    I like the "scatters things often" text. I imagine it not being able to control the magnets and sends silverware and such flying and causes trouble for your trainer
