@theroguewriter: Congrats on the totodile!

@pokewalker: Wow! Congrats on the shiny suicune!~ I think that might be my first legendary hunt once I get far enough in SS. @[email protected] I love the legendary beasts.

@Janske: I agree! I've always been a forum lurker before now! I mean, I'm not super active here either but at least I post once in a while. xD I haven't met anyone I don't like yet in PC (except people who proposition trades and never go through with them. c.c

    @ Kitori; Oh yeah I know alright:p. Usually it goes like this: Hey do you want to trade "this" pokemon for "your" pokemon? Sure let's trade :D! *enters GTS happily (wastes time)...* Hey are you there yet? Sorry nvm, gtg anyway bye. (person is never to be seen again xD). Thanks for wasting my life -.- haha.

    @ Everyone; what do you think about the BW2 shiny charm that increases the chance of seeing a shiny in 1/2,370 and hatching an egg by 1/1024? Do you think it devalues a "true" shiny like 1/8192 or do you still see it as a normal shiny encounter?

    I personally can't help to think it got a bit cheapened. I don't say it isn't nice and definetely saves some time, but still I can't help thinking it feels like cheating lol. The 1/1366 egg chance in BW is still "OK" in a way as hatching takes way longer than RE or SR so therefore I find that method legit too. It is just my own opinion but feel free to post yours.

        Dimi, just out of curiosity, you do know you have to save in front of the place you release them, go find them both, and if they aren't shiny reset and repeat, right? Just checking you know lol.

        Janske, I'm hunting for Johto starters and Eevee(MM) right now! How about yourself?

        Also, I do agree with the opinion that it cheapens shinies. I found the Masuda odds to be just in the balance between time it takes hatching and odds of a shiny - and when I ask my friends if they have the shiny charm when they found their shinies and justify the lower odds by the time it took to get the national dex, I can't help but point out that I feel to earn shinies you should hunt shinies, and not complete pokedexes. That's just my two cents though - I just won't ever use the shiny charm! XD

        Koopa, that sounds cool! Good luck getting your starter soon! :D

          @Eevee x.x In front of the place? Aww, crap. I figured it'd be a different frame or IVs for my first encounter with them. I've just been avoiding them in the wild, but I thinkI did release them. ...Yeah I did.x.x Lmao, well there went that. I'll have to use my LeafGreen for them now. XDD

          @Janske Awww, I know, I ran into a bunch of them on my last run through B/W. Im trying to get one or wanting for for my SoulSilver for my party. I'd have to hunt it on HG or Platinum. I think I got a few places in mind. Im at the Olivine Light House now in SS with 4 badges, so I could try near/around the Whirlpool Islands, not that I cant actually get past the whirlpools.

          Wait, what? Shiny Charm? I've never heard of that. Then again, I only made it after my victory in the pkmn league in B2. Thats when I lost my SS file and turned shiny hunter, so I put that game on pause for a few long months. xDDD SS is still by far my favorite remake of my favorite main pkmn game, so all my efforts and focus is always centered around it. I play the others for the plot and story lines. I love seeing the reasoning behind every evil organization in pkmn.

          And this sucks! I made a post this morning that didn't go through! I was in my cellar, with my moms stupid boyfriend spray painting something. I was there first, and he came down to do that alone, indoors, without opening any windows. I kicked him out of the cellar after almost passing out. I was about to give up on hunting Dratini, Ive been on it almost nonstop since getting Pichu, and I actually got it. It was like 5am-ish. I was so stocked. I think my Pichu and Dratini might also both count for the May Challenge. <3

          I wonder if the fumes made me think I sent the post? Or I did something wrong. I dont know. x.x I was so angry at that dude.

          Dratini's IVs and Nature (he lvled up once since my post last night, so the stats now changed)

          Female; Modest; Impetuous and Silly

          Atk -25
          Def -20
          Sp. Atk -27
          Sp. Def -21
          Speed -25


          I had also put up the ones for the Pichu (caught at 22 but now 30 and a pikachu) but Im too lazy for that now. I only care about the Dratini right now. I love Dragon Pokemon. :] Still failing on Torchic. Ive been hunting that for like... Seven? Six weeks now. Stupid Sapphire and Emerald. >.

            Sorry for even more bad news but Entei and Riakou both know Roar in FRLG which causes them to be gone until you beat the E4 again, and that causes them to reset so they won't be shiny any more if they were...
            Entei and Raikou, the hardest shinies to hunt in the history of ever

            Congrats on that Dratini though - so many lovely shinies coming right now!

              @ Dimitrius; Yeah you should check the shiny charm out, though I don't like it, you get shinies easier lol. Also, wow those are impressive IVs for your dratini!! Maybe not a perfect 31 stat, but all 20+, very nice indeed:D.

              @TSE; Yeah I am glad you think the same way as I do:D. I don't even own BW2 yet but I guess if I do I wont complete the pokedex so I save myself the temptation to get the shiny charm and get them "legitimately xD". I am hunting 2 things currently. 1 is for the shiny challenge of Kitori which is (hopefully) shiny nidoran male in Fire red. The other shiny is Ho-oh in SS. I'm switching but I get bored of SR very quickly since no competition like with the shiny challenge haha:D. Do you think finding RE is going quicker in gen III compared to gen IV and V?

                Kitori: Thanks! I was really happy to finally get totodile :D

                I'm past the second gym now, and in search of a RE shiny to join Aggro. That, I suspect, will take some time.

                    @Janske Niceee~ Good stuff, congratz on the Spearow.

                    @Eevee Omg. I had NO clue about that. Thank you for tell me this. I should have looked more into this before pulling the trigger. But I was just doing some research. On youtube, a user named um T18MIKE mentions a method known as 'Post E4'. He implied, and suggested he did 50 times before finding a Shiny Raikou, that if you KO/Faint the Raikou/Entei, that they are respawned after every victory over the Elite 4 and Lance. After the game loads up, the two legendaries should be roaming again. You find them, and if they arent shiny, KO 'em, defeat the E4+lance, and try again. If at all possible, I wanna see if any of us in the positions to try this to do so. Considering I already messed up, and I lose nothing in slaying my two legendaries, Im DEFINITELY gonna give this a try and Ill keep the club posted on results. x.x

                        Thanks dude, Im gonna need the luck. I already predict that is gonna take a ridiculous amount of time, compared to the normal method. x.x But its too late for me to use the original method, I might as well test out this other one that way all of us know what's up for sure. Cause if this really can and does work, this is totally something other people need to know about. :p

                            LMAO! -laughs at the self inserted pun.- That's tough. Best of luck with the exams. These are stressful times, with final exams and papers.

                                  I want to ask you all---how long did you take to get your shiny starter? I have never acquired a shiny starter and I'd like to have one XD

                                    Ive gotten... -counts his fingers.- Seven shiny starters. Two chikoritas, two totodiles, two cyndaquils, and a charmander. Charmander was my first, and it took three days. Each day I did about 10-13 hours of RSing while watching movies. The fastest one I got was my second Chikorita, took only 30 mins. The time varies greatly. x.x

                                      I only tried for one very recently on charmander took me about 2412 soft resets to be exact. Time it took me I dunno but for sure between 10-15 hours considering the dialogue + intro.

                                        x'D Well glad i'm not the only one.
                                        I just recently got in the mood though, after contemplating it lots.
                                        And the wild Karrablast really fed the fire lol

                                        Thanks for the welcome guys!

                                        @Starter question:
                                        I haven't gotten me a shiny starter yet but I have done approx. 2,700 SRs so far.
                                        Gonna probably be here a while longer~ but I don't mind, I'm catching up on some TV shows while I do this lol.

                                          Same here, Wasabii. I thought it was weird of me, but soon learned many others are doing it too. We're all here for the same cause!! >;D

                                          Oooo, Janske, that is pretty sweet SR for the charmander. Im jealous. Im gonna have to re-get my Charmander. I dont keep track of my number of RS's. Im one of this 'live in the moment people' and keep tracking of the numbers would drive me insane and would destroy the little patience I have. The numbers would be mocking or taunting me. XD

                                            So my shiny Crconaw has gotten me up to Goldenrod City, but I was holding off on the gym there as my goal is to add a shiny to my team every couple gyms... seemed like a stretch, but gots to have goals and stuff. So I played at the game corner to get enough coins for an Abra (cause I ain't hunting a wild one and have it teleport on me... I'd cry I think) and did some resets trying to hit on, somewhere around a 100 over the last couple days. No biggy, just to kill time. At work and figured I'd rest on the resetting for Abra and try the bug-catching contest, ran around and didn't find anything, which was not really shocking. So post-contest I decided to do a couple REs in the park as I don't think Abra shows up there (and again, no teleporting...sad panda) and after three or four REs what pops up...

                                            SHINY FREAKIN METAPOD!!!

                                            Stared at it for a minute, quite shocked. Only my third RE pokemon EVER!!! Check battery - still good. Start lobbing balls at it. When it can't Harden any more I Scratched it a couple times with Aggro - his weakest attack - and kept throwing balls. Finally nabbed it on the 9th or 10th ball. Saved. Woot!!!!!

                                            So introducing Team Shiny #2, soon to be a Butterfree....

                                              LMAO!!! Orange colored Banana. Thats hilarious. Rogue, that is cool stuff. I haven't had a RE shiny yet. Only SR, and one Chained Shiny. Kudos, dude. Congrats. Butterfree is a pwning pokemon to have. Ive found it to be very versatile.

                                                BTW i did 600 RE more after shiny spearow in order to get shiny nidoran but no luck yet ugh. Feel like this is going to take wayyy longer than the other ones

                                                  Okay, I only have one shiny pokemon that I obtained recently and is really worth listing:

                                                  I hatched it, I prefer the idea of breeding shinies to finding them in the wild.
                                                  I am currently trying to breed for a shiny Snivy, but when I have succeded I will move on the other two starters of Unova.
