    Shiny Chikorita!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    :pink_boogie: ^^ :pink_boogie: ^^ :pink_boogie: ^^ :pink_boogie:

    WOOT WOOT!!! {XD}

    I'm on the board for 2018! I was duel-resetting, with Snivy on White 2 and the Johto starters on HG to continue (actually, more like start upon, "lol!") the Path of the Dragon in my personal Quest to get Rayquaza, the greatest shiny of all time (!!!), and I found a shiny Chikorita on Johto starter #5167! I really love Johto and everything about it and I especially love the Johto starters, so I'm thrilled about this!!! Since the resets go by so quickly (*sticks tongue out at IcyIce and his Guzzlord times* :pink_tongue: ), I'm hoping to get three of each; this is my third shiny Chikorita, so now I have the complete set! I have two Totodile too, so I just need one more Toto and three Cyndaquil, and then I think I'll SR for a shiny Chikorita to play through the game with, because what could be more fun than running around Johto with a totally radical pink Chikorita!? {XD}

    I tried to be the first shiny hunter ever to find a shiny under the Atlantic Ocean, so I hunted while going through the Chunnel from France to England (and back!), but someone else is going to have to earn the glory of being the first shiny hunter to find a shiny under the ocean, haha! :pink_laugh: This is my first shiny caught outside of the US, though, so even though it says in the picture that I caught it on January 14th, I actually caught it on January 15th at 2:50AM, but I just haven't changed my DS clock, "lol!"

    Regarding the pictures, I'm not able to send pictures from my potato outside of the USA, so I had to use my Belgian phone and its abysmal camera quality. I apologize for this terrible rendition of my shiny, but this was the only apparatus available to take the picture, so I'm afraid we're left with this unbearably calamitous image quality. I'm putting the pictures in spoilers so you can shield your eyes, and I apologize again for posting such low-quality images - I just wanted to show some proof that I really did find the shiny. ~_~

    Spoiler:




    Since I found Aayla at 2:50AM, I figured I'd go to bed and post in the SHC the next day. I was pretty busy, though, so I waited to post until today. But last night I woke up in the middle of the night, and I figured I'd do some shunting for a few minutes before going back to bed...

    OMG SHINY Totodile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha this is amazing!!! :laugh: I legit was super surprised, "lol!" I hadn't even posted about Chikorita yet, and Totodile shines already!! It came on Johto starter #33 - yup, you read that right!! Johto starter number thirty-three!! For real!!! Hahahahaha this is by far my shortest hunt ever!!! I once found a shiny Beldum in only 30 eggs and a Magnemite in two, but I wasn't really hunting for those, "lol." This was a full, complete shiny hunt, and it only took 33 Johto starters seen! :pink_laugh: What a day! {XD}

    This one came at 5:53AM, "lol!" Two shinies in 51 hours isn't a bad way to start the year's successful hunts! :pink_smile:

    I really love LilyGardy's reaction captures, so I'm going to try dropping one myself:

    *normal Chikorita appears*
    *rotates to normal Cyndaquil*
    *rotates to shiny Totodile*
    *rotates to normal Chikorita*
    G-Money: Wait a minute...
    *rotates back to shiny Totodile*
    *gasps*
    G-Money: This can't...
    *looks at calculator*
    *looks back at Totodile*
    *looks back at calculator, still showing 30 Johto starters*
    *looks back at Totodile, who is still shiny*
    G-Money: OMG SHINY Totodile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now I have three Chikos and three Totos! Two full sets of awesome Johto starters!! *dances again* Now just to get those three Cyndaquil, and Johto, here I come! :laugh:

    I went with a Star Wars theme and named both of them after Jedi - Aayla for Chikorita and Nahdar for Totodile. Nahdar's Adamant and Highly Curious, which is totally perfect for him, haha! :) And I'm really glad that this Chikorita was a female, since I always think of Chikorita as being a female Pokémon, even though they're 7/8ths male, "lol!"

    Spoiler:


    I apologize for the image quality once more.

    PSEUDO-EDIT: When looking over this post before posting, I realize I can't leave such disgusting horror and terror in your minds from these images. To cleanse your eyes, here are some Potato Classics, and hopefully these memories of fantastic image quality and top-notch camera skills will make you forget about the grotesque monstrosities I've just posted:

    Lickitung's always been one of my favorites, so I'll be adding him to my main team for sure (w/ Eviolite). I remember getting a card of it at Burger King back in the day and thought it was the coolest thing. Now that I think about it, though I don't think I ever confessed it, Lickitung might've been my original favorite.

    I just recently noticed that Lickitung's base SpAtk is higher than its physical Atk, so I plan to teach him my favorite attack: Ice Beam! I was thinking Shadow Ball (my second-favorite attack), Rest, and Sleep Talk for the other slots, but maybe I should give him Flamethrower for Steel coverage...

    EDIT: Changed his name to Meric (short for turmeric, a yellow spice, but pronounced like Marik).


    Thanks! Lepidodendron is very fun to say (maybe even more fun than Regigigas). I was a bit disappointed to learn that the "Lepidodendron" trunk fossil I found was actually a Diaphorodendron (if only because it wasn't as fun to say).

    Spoiler:


    Thanks so much for the in-depth response! I'll definitely avoid Cute Charm for the remainder of the hunt, though I might have to take a short break before continuing the hunt because I've seemed to develop gamer's neck. Dx

    Congrats on the Lickitung and Exeggcute! I never imagined teaching Lickitung Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, or Flamethrower...like, it never even crossed my mind!! I've thought about a lot of different things in my life, but I've never thought about giving Lickitung good moves, "lol!" Enjoy your cool (and cool move-wielding!) shinies!!

    And super hyper mega congrats on Burmy!!! You've been after that thing for forever, dude!!

    Shiny Female Magcargo - The Magenta works better than it should.

    Then I got FOUR Shinys in successive wormholes Here's a rundown of them and my reaction:

    Shiny Female Sassy Crustle - 'That's a Shiny.' My second Shiny Crustle.
    Shiny Female Docile Abomasnow - 'Just what I was looking for, two in a row.' The blue is nice here and it's always nice to get a Grass Shiny.
    Shiny Male Crustle - 'Another one. Three on the spin'
    Shiny Female Modest Swellow - 'Shiny Swellow...Four in a row.'

    The run was stopped by a Normal Stunfisk (Of course) in a Blue wormhole.

    Just before heading to bed I did a bit of wormhole running and found a Shiny Yellow Grumpig - Never used the line but the yellow is a nice Shiny.

A very elegant Shiny that works incredibly well and I particularly like the pink flames.

    It was caught by False Swiping with my Decidueye (Luckily Reshiram decided to not use Fusion Flare) before I used Roto Catch and caught it in an Ultra Ball. It has a Gentle nature which whilst not great competitively fits the Pokemon well and I'm not a competitive battler anyway.

    Pokemon Black was the game that got me back into the series after taking a break throughout the whole of Gen 4 and naturally I had Reshiram in my first ever Unova team (Along with other Unova Pokemon I really like such as Lilligant and Gothitelle). :) Reshiram was of course Shiny locked in Gen 5 and I couldn't get it in Gen 6 either due to getting Alpha Sapphire.

    Whilst Virizion is my favourite Legendary overall Reshiram is my favourite 'Box Legendary' and I am very pleased to obtain the gold ringed white dragon. :)

    Surprisingly in the Normal Battle Tree modes box legendaries are allowed so I took Reshiram straight to the Battle Tree to get it a Battle Tree Ribbon.

    My reaction on the Shiny finally appearing:

    'Oh, Oh, that's the Shiny'.

    He was caught in a Beast Ball after my Lilligant used Sleep Powder. This makes Buzzwole my first Shiny of the year and a great one at that.

    Kartana's defence isn't the highest so I did the old-fashioned method of throwing Beast Balls. It took two then he was caught.

    I like this Shiny. It is a nice contrast to the yellow armed Shiny but I haven't thought a name for him yet. I am very pleased it was a reasonably short SR which is odd as I seem to have higher luck with Grass type Shinys. I now have both the original Sun exclusive UB's.

    I may try for a Shiny Reshiram or Virizion next. It's unfortunate that Pheromosa is Ultra Moon exclusive.

    She is now a Shiny Florges which has a mainly purple body with a little bit of bright blue. The Yellow Flower goes with the Purple well and she has the Flower Veil Ability which assists Grass types in Double Battles. Fitting an elegant Pokemon like Florges I caught her in a Luxury Ball.

    Speaking of Grass Types my next soft reset will be Shiny Virizion although I may try for a red flower Floette first, with its use of Grassy Terrain and Wish I will need to bring the False Swipers.

    Prima the Shiny Gentle Smoochum - Found after about 120 SOS encounters in Seaward Cave. Now a Shiny Jynx. I like how the hair lightens a little and the dress turns pink.

    Max the Lonely (Mega) Houndoom - Found after about 42 SOS encounters. He has the Early Bird ability. I'm not sure the blue and yellow on Shiny Houndoom works too well but the darker blue and orange on Mega Houndoom looks great especially the dark orange snout. Also another Ultra Sun Exclusive Pokemon.

    Shiny Jolly Swanna - Found in a Red Wormhole. The Purple is a nice touch.

    Rose the Shiny Jolly Virizion - Took a while to find a Wormhole containing Virizion but when I did I put a Jolly synchronise Gardevoir at the front of the party and started soft resetting. Incredibly it shined after only about 270 Soft resets : 0 :

    I swapped out Gardevoir and started false swiping with Decidueye as he was immune to Virizion's fighting moves. After a few false swipes a Roto Catch Ultra Balls it was caught. :)

    The Jolly Synchronise worked and the pink Virizion has high IVs in everything except HP (Which can be bottle capped anyway) and Special Attack which I won't be using.

    Virizion is my favourite Shiny Legendary Pokemon and I really like the pink here. Getting it so quickly was a nice surprise too. This might quite possibly be my best ever Shiny Catch. :)

    Next Hunt - Kyurem

    The next day whilst looking for more wormhole shinys I found:

    Esme the Shiny Serious Altaria - Caught in an Ultra Ball in a wormhole of around 2600 light years. I really like the gold here. This is my third catch of the Altaria line, all from different games (A Swablu in a X horde, A random encounter Swablu (Now an Altaria) in Alpha Sapphire in this one. Surprisingly all have neutral natures. Altaria is a great Shiny so I don't mind catching duplicates. :)

    Whilst looking for Cresselia yesterday I found in a wormhole of around 5300 light years:

    Fortune the Shiny Naive Altaria - I was thinking to myself as the Cotton Bird's silhouette came down 'It will be funny if this was Shiny'...and it was. After two turns of False Swiping Altaria used Perish Song. I had no idea it learnt it:

    Next turn throw Ultra Ball 3 shakes and out.
    Turn after Ultra Ball 3 shakes and out

    Last turn before the Shiny fainted due to Perish Song and as I didn't save before I couldn't soft reset. I strongly considered using my Master Ball but decided against due to already having a Shiny Altaria.

    The strongest ball I had other than the Master Ball was an Ultra Ball. Three Shakes and In. Probably the most nervous I've been catching a Shiny since finding a Shiny Ralts in Alpha Sapphire which I DID Masterball as I was worried it had Teleport. (It didn't)

    The speed boosting nature of this Altaria is near ideal for Battle Tree even though the Special Defence drop is not ideal. I am pleased I managed to catch it though. :)Let's see what this Golden Bird which will be Mega Evolved can do.


    Wow, you've really been on a roll!! What a month of shiny hunting, haha! Huge congrats on all those shinies!

    It's hilarious that the Battle Tree staff allow box legendaries into the arena, haha! I can just see a trainer walking in with a Reshiram and the attendant just giving a nod as the trainer walks in, "loll!'

    And that Perish Song story was really scary!!! :pink_disbelief: I'm so glad you got it! :happy:

    Some of my current hunts, I'm currently at 2,134 re's for an Azurill in X on Route 22. So far this is the only route to have taken me over 2,000 encounters before a shiny appeared. Phase 1 found me a shiny Psyduck at 2,753.
    I'm at 1500 fossil resets for Omanyte
    And I'm at 1230 eggs hatched for a shiny Nidoran. Preferably the female since I have 12 males.

    Today I continued my random encounter hunt for Azurill and found my second shiny on the route, a Litleo. It's female but will stay a Litleo. It appeared at 4,661 encounters.

    The next time I do this hunt I will likely do the repel trick on Y version. But not until after I hatch a shiny Nidoran. That will cut out 4 of the 8 Pokemon including Litleo, Bunnelby, Psyduck and Bidoof. And will leave Azurill, Riolu, Farfetch'd and Dunsparce.

    Santalune Forest, Caterpie, 11-21-17, 1588 encounters, X, 10% (the target: Caterpie, Weedle)

    Route 22, Litleo, 1-16-18, 4661 encounters, X, 20% (Azurill)


    Happy birthday, Maserati! Hope you had a fantastic day!! :)

    Massive congrats on all those shinies you've hauled in!! You're at the point now where you can come up with some really cool box ideas...like, you could have a box exclusively dedicated to shiny Nidoran, haha! :pink_laugh: Or you could trade them all over to one game and just evacuate all your non-shiny Pokemon from there and just have that one trainer with like hundreds of shinies, "lol!"

    Welcome to the SHC, AllyWooflahs! Congrats on the terrific Gligar - that's a really nice shiny, and the perfect IVs + hidden ability make it even better!!

    I hope you can reclaim that Groudon soon! It has one of the best colors of any shiny legendary...in fact, the Hoenn legendaries just have really amazing shinies overall!! Rayquaza, Groudon, Latias, Latios, Kyogre...is Hoenn the hands-down best region for shinies?

    I will be honest, I almost ran from it because it was a Stunfisk. I do want to do some updating to my list. I didn't post for a very long time here and I was doing my "Ash Challenge".

    I am going to give up on that challenge for a bit and I think I am gonna go with the flow. I will say this, this year I want to try to catch 1 shiny of every color of the Rainbow or the colors of the Hawaiian Islands. I also want to try to SR a Ho-oH as it is my #1 most wanted shiny.

    I do not currently have the Shiny Charm in Pokemon US, because I haven't transferred my pokemon, not even from ORAS yet. So it will be a long grind, probably.

    I did take a break from my previous post and spent a day finishing the Pokedex to get Shiny Charm. I got it in the Red Wormhole with maxed rings and at about 3200 Light Years.

    It has a Quiet nature.

    I don't currently know what my next shiny farm will be. I need to make some money and buy some pokeballs before I do it again. I will have pictures of my Shiny Pokemon soon that I have gotten in US so far.


    Ironically, I got it the day after I watched Zoroark, Master of Illusion movie, which is the movie that made me really start searching for Shiny Pokemon and my first ever Shiny Pokemon which were the Crowned Beast Events from Gamestop. Other than my Shiny Ponyta which I think I got before the Crowned Beast events.

    Spoiler:


    And here is a list of all the shiny pokemon I got yesterday. All because I was looking for a Mewtwo which never appeared....

    Naughty Floatzel
    Sassy Lombre
    Quirky Nuzleaf
    Docile Audino
    Lax Heliolisk (Which is now my second Shiny Heliolisk.)

    I think they were all 2 ringed wormholes between 1500 and 3500.

    I am currently working on SRing Nihilego, but I don't know if I will stick to it or not. I am currently at slightly above 3500 Light Years with no rings. I can't seem to find Nihilego Wormhole with rings. Depending on if I stick to it or not, I may just stop wormholes for a bit, because 5 in a single day is like wow.... I want to SR Guzzlord and Mewtwo, but I have yet to run into either. And if I have to be 5000 Light Years, I probably will never be able to SR them with Wormholes as I can rarely get beyond 4000.

    Out of my 5 shiny yesterday, Floatzel takes the top prize as it is one of my favorite Sinnoh pokemon and part of my "Ash Challenge" even though Ash never actually evolved Buizel...

I am hoping that if I catch my first Guzzlord, it will take out the 15 second cutscene like it does with the other Ultra Beasts once you first encounter them.

    So here is a list of all my current shiny pokemon.

    Spoiler:








    The event pokemon there are the following:
    Spoiler:
    x 2 Charizard
    x 2 Set of Crowned Beasts (Legendary Dogs)
    x 1 Rayquaza
    x 1 Milotic
    x 1 Metagross
    x 1 Creation Trio
    x 3 Xerneas
    x 3 Yveltal
    x 1 Tapu Koko
    x 1 Silvally


    With me retiring from my Guzzlord SR for now, I am now turning to my Rainbow Challenge. There are a few possible versions of this challenge. I will be going with the colors of each Hawaiian Island. If you want to join me or do your own, here is my version.

    In Hawaii, there are 8 main islands, on in which have a color. Alola follows this, but since there are more islands in Hawaii, I am going with that instead.

    Yellow, Pink, Purple, Red, Green, Orange, Grey and White.

    I am also going to add Blue to the mix because Blue is one of the colors in a rainbow. I will also add Cyan so that the Warm and Cool colors balance each other out. You could also add Black.

    Note: Instead of Cyan, you could also do Indigo or Violet. But since I usually pair Pink and Cyan together, I am going with Cyan.

    The goal is to find 1 Shiny Pokemon for every color, It can be any tint of said color. It just has to be of the color listed. If you want to, you can make it a bit harder the choose and make the pokemon have to be fully or mainly that color.

    This is my list currently. I will only include my most recent captures if I choose. So the only one I will include is Floatzel.

    Spoiler:

    Green:
    Purple:
    Blue:
    Cyan:

I have tried to MM it in the past, but I just wasn't having any luck. So I am so glad I was able to SOS a Shiny Rufflet in.

    My current Egg Hunt is for Amaura. If I can get a shiny of it will take the place of my white shiny in my own Rainbow challenge.


    Congrats on all those fantastic shinies, IcyIce!!! You've really come back with a bang, haha - we're really glad to have you back in the club! :happy:

    That Rainbow Challenge is a really awesome idea - do you want to make it a club-wide Quest (minus the colors you've already gotten, to make it fair to anyone else starting just now)? It's cool too if you want to do it on your own and have that be, like, "The Great IcyIce Accomplishment," but if you want other people to jump in and race you or whatnot, I'd be happy to put it in the first post and spread the word, haha. {:3}

    Welcome to the Shiny Hunters Club, Platigx!! Your shiny hunting is off to a great start with that cool list!

    When you say that you already saw Rotom, you mean you saw it on the map, right? Like, not that you entered into a battle with it? Because I think that whether or not it's shiny (as well as its stats) gets determined once you enter the battle, so if you just entered the room and then left, you should still be able to hunt it later on. :pink_smile:

    - Zapdos on Tuesday after soft resetting since Sunday. I named it Spark after the leader of Team Instinct.
    - Noibat from SOS chaining on Tuesday.
    - Bagon from SOS chaining yesterday.
    - Alolan Rattata from SOS chaining shortly after.
    Congrats on those shinies! I've always thought shiny Articuno had one of the coolest colors of any Pokémon - it just looks so majestic and noble!

    Hey Chr.! Congrats on those amazing shinies - you always find the coolest Pokémon to hunt! You must have a ton of legendaries by now - are you nearing any complete sets?

    We all know that you're an all-time great shiny hunter, but this latest batch really proves that you're a...legendary shiny hunter!! {XD} :pink_laugh: :laugh:

    Perfectly battle viable shiny goomy! It is modest, all of its stats except attack are perfect and it has ability Sap Sipper. Didn't think I could get this lucky. :)
    Welcome to the SHC, Ageha!! We're really glad to have you join!

    "lol" I really love the name of that Goomy, hahahahaha!! :pink_laugh: Congrats!! And that seems like the perfect Goomy to have, too!!

      Swanna appeared while I was doing some Ultra Wormhole hunting, so I guess it will be my purple pokemon.

      I ran into a new Shiny Swellow, but I accidentally killed it because I clicked another move instead of false swipe. Not to big of a deal since normal pokemon are fairly common in the Ultra Wormhole and I already had one. I've run into multiple Legendary Wormholes at 4000 to 4500 light years, but I didn't feel like SRing right now. Although my eyes are turning to Latias and Latios later on. But I will have to defeat White 2 or OR to catch to hunt Latias.

        My latest Shiny in Ultra Sun:

        Esme the Hasty Shiny Cresselia - Found after around 1000 soft resets. The Purple back and green rings are very noticeable. It is a very elegant Shiny.

        Not wanting to be caught it broke out of two critical captures, several ultra balls all under Roto Catch. Worried about Struggle and noting it could heal itself I threw my Master Ball at it. The Purple ball matches the Shiny.

        My Modest Synchronise Gardevoir didn't work giving Cresselia a Hasty nature which isn't great competitively but will still be fine for the Battle Tree. I am very pleased to have obtained such a beautiful Shiny.

        I also found a Shiny Zubat whilst ev training.

          4485 Challenger's Cave encounters
          1152 Johto starters

          I shiny hunted on TV!! I was waiting at the airport for my plane, and so I was doing a bit of hunting in Challenger's Cave in Black - I really love to hunt in GenV when on the go, since it counts encounters for you and you don't need to worry about having a calculator, haha! So I was continuing my Ghost Quest with that 1/81,920 ("lol") Sableye hunt that's going to take decades, when all of a sudden some important person walked by and there were TV cameras!!! A reporter was interviewing this person while they were walking through the airport (I'm guessing the important person just got off a plane that landed at the same runway from which mine was going to take off later on?), and I was definitely in some frames when they doing the interview - the television cameras went right by my seat!! So now I think I've become the first person to shiny hunt on TV - you might've seen me if you watch Danish news! :pink_laugh:

          Speaking of that Sableye hunt, it's become a lot more fun now that icycatelf's convinced me that Lickitung is really cool. I kind of want a shiny one now just to give it Ice Beam/Flamethrower/Shadow Ball, "lol!" {XD} Riolu, Mawile, and Boldore are also among the non-Sableye Pokémon found here, so this is actually a hunt that I don't mind going like a bazillion phases on, since a heap of the Axiom 22 targets are really dope, too! :pink_smile:

          Sweet, congrats on those shinies! Cresselia has one of the coolest color schemes of any Pokémon ever, and it's probably in my top-10 shinies overall! Heck, that thing alone could probably count as a Wild Card for IcyIce - it's got like every color you can imagine! :laugh:

            I was going for Cyan next, but I am currently doing a double hunt for the Eon Duo, mainly Latias atm, but she is going to be the hardest to get with a normal shiny chance.

            In Omega Ruby, I have gotten to Eon Ticket through Streetpass/Spotpass, whatever its called, when I restarted Omega Ruby, so I had to get to the 5th Gym and trasfereed pokemon I had on my last OR game to the new one and I am using those to use the 'Run Method' for Latias on Southern Islands, since you only have to Run from battle instead of SRing.

            In Ultra Sun, I have my character camped at a Latios which I will be SRing for after I get a Latias. I would have SRed for Latios as well in ORAS, but the story one has a battle it is locked behind and some dialogue, so I chose not to to save time.

            The good thing is, Latias is orange and Latios is close enough to Cyan.

            I also managed to to get a Shiny Male Hippowdon and a Second Shiny Floatzel while I was looking for a Latios wormhole in US.

            I am also planning to get virtual console Pokemon Crystal in hopes of getting a Shiny Celebi from the event you can do after the Elite 4, since it is a battle and it isn't shiny locked. So you should be able to SR it. I am not sure how the Gen 2 games work with shiny legendaries, so I probably need to look into it a bit more before I actually try.

              After I got the Litleo on 16th I was in a drought until the 29th when I found a Cubchoo horde hunting for Smoochum in 1,052 hordes.

              Then on the 1st a shiny Snubbull appeared in 2,475 encounters. Both were my second of each so will evolve them and any future ones are duplicates.

              On the 2nd I found a shiny Porygon in 661 Dexnav encounters. I evolved it to Porygon2. And on the 3rd my first shiny Vanillite appeared at 672 hordes. When I horde hunted for Nidoran F I got the shiny Starly after 18 other shinies so hopefully this Smoochum doesn’t take as long. I’m still breeding for Nidoran and fossil resetting for Omanyte.

                I have found a few Shinys in my Gen 2 VC games

                Crystal

                Marshal the Shiny Tyrogue - Hatched after 4 odd egg resets. I was going for any Shiny and was very pleased to hatch a Shiny I did not have. He is now a Shiny Hitmonlee which in Gen 2 is green and purple.

                Silver

                Ibuki the Shiny Horsea - Hatched after only 21 eggs. The parents were the Lake of Rage Shiny Gyardos and a Horsea I caught in yellow. Shiny Horsea has a pink belly and fin in Gen 2 so it is an instantly recognisable Shiny. Shiny Seadra is even better with a dark blue and pink markings.

                I found the Dragon Scale and traded it to my Crystal game where she evolved into Kingdra which is a royal purple. Kingdra is my favourite Gen 2 Pokemon so I am very pleased to obtain one in its debut generation. :)

When I horde hunted for Nidoran F I got the shiny Starly after 18 other shinies so hopefully this Smoochum doesn’t take as long. I’m still breeding for Nidoran and fossil resetting for Omanyte.
                  Congratulations on all those new shinies!!! Good luck on your current hunts, especially the Omanyte one - all hail the Helix!! :pink_evil:

                  I can't believe you actually found a shiny Celebi, of all things!!! By Jove! That's incredible - I don't think I've ever heard of anyone ever getting one before. Enormous congratulations for what's got to be the rarest shiny ever!

                  Silver

                  Ibuki the Shiny Horsea - Hatched after only 21 eggs. The parents were the Lake of Rage Shiny Gyardos and a Horsea I caught in yellow. Shiny Horsea has a pink belly and fin in Gen 2 so it is an instantly recognisable Shiny. Shiny Seadra is even better with a dark blue and pink markings.

                  I found the Dragon Scale and traded it to my Crystal game where she evolved into Kingdra which is a royal purple. Kingdra is my favourite Gen 2 Pokemon so I am very pleased to obtain one in its debut generation. :)
                  Congrats on the new shinies!! I'm really shocked that Kingdra is your favorite GenII Pokémon - I was expecting a Grass-type! :pink_disbelief: Or at least Sudowoodo or something, "lol!" :laugh:

                  Managed to get a shiny Chikorita through MM when I wasn't going for it, its now a competitive Meganium I love the change to the autumnal colours and I feel like it was a good way of waving out the winter months

                    On the 6th I continued to horde hunt for Smoochum.
                    I got Vanillite #2 in 519 hordes and evolved to Vanillish. I also got Cubchoo #3 in 16 hordes. On the 7th I got Cubchoo #4 in 204 hordes.

                    On the 9th I got Vanillite #3 in 66 hordes and evolved to Vanilluxe. Then Vanillite #4 in 68 hordes.

                      I used the Shiny Gen 1 Ditto trick using the Shiny Gyardos so I can breed for some Shinys. Using said Shiny Ditto and a regular female Venomoth in Crystal I got:

                      Shiny Female Venomoth (Natalie) - Came after 62 eggs. I really like the blue eyes on this Shiny. It is very noticeable and looks great in Gen 2. She will be evolved into Venomoth and eventually sent to Ultra Sun. All VC shinys gets their Hidden Ability so this Pokemon will eventually have the Wonder Skin ability. Venomoth is my favourite Bug Pokemon so I am very pleased to finally get a Shiny one.

                        I continued horde hunting for Smoochum and found my 5th shiny Cubchoo. It was almost my second fail as well as I got down to the final 2 Pokemon and accidentally clicked a blank spot. It was a 50/50 chance it wouldn’t knock out the shiny and luck was on my side.
                        It was 187 hordes.

                        I’ve been keeping track of the Smoochum hordes and so far I have 8 shinies with 153 Smoochum hordes seen. This ends a long drought as well since my last shiny was on the 9th.

                          Wooooooooooooooo

                          Today I did 60 more Omanyte fossil resets and the shiny appeared at 3,734 fossils.

                          This is my 10 full odds hunt shiny and my 2nd fossil reset shiny in Pokemon Y. Only about 3,000 more fossils then Aerodactyl. I plan to fossil reset for Kabuto next but probably not for while, then will probably masuda for the evolutions in the future.

                            After not posting anything for a while now. I have pretty much given up on ever getting a shiny Teddiursa through FS encounters and switched to hatching for shiny Caterpie which I managed to get after about 120 eggs. I was half asleep when it hatched and thought I was hallucinating. After that I got Pokémon Moon (FINALLY) and mid play through I found a shiny Flechinder. I was scared to death when I threw my ultra ball at it. After I completed the game I hunted for Whiscash and forgot to keep track of the SOS encounters (which I’m pretty sure were in the triple digit range) but still managed to catch it after it used rest a billion times. Then I moved on to Magby who I caught after 20 SOS encounters (I count by the number of successful calls including the shiny’s call). It’s freaking adorable! Next on the list is going to be a grass type. No idea which though.

                            [P.S.] Sorry about the lack of photo proof. I’ll try to upload it later.

                              I'm more than 10% of the way to a shiny Sableye!! Or, at least I would be, if I hadn't verified that the first 8824 encounters were non-shiny-Sableye entities...probability is weird, "lol!" Based on the knowledge that I've already seen 8824 Pokémon in Challenger's Cave, I'm expected to get my shiny Sableye in...

                              *counts on fingers*

                              ...81,920 more encounters!! :laugh-squinted: Talk about shifting goalposts, "lol!"

                              *watches team of football players run onto field, lift the goalpost, and carry it away*

                              Sweet, congrats!! "lol" I never thought of hunting like that, but I guess it really does put you in the mood of the season you're hunting in! I usually try to align my hunts with the seasons (searching for snow Pokémon in the winter, surfing near beaches for Frillish in the summer, etc.), but it looks like you've found a way to "wave" (surf's up, yo! :laugh: ) out the winter!!

                              Congrats on all the new shinies - especially Omanyte!!! Fossils are an awesome way to get into SR hunts, and they're especially cool since like no one ever has shiny fossils, haha. You picked an awesome hunt and I hope you get many more shiny fossils!!! :pink_smile:

                              Have you started on the Kabuto hunt?

                              Nice!! The Venonat line has some really cool Pokémon, and I've always thought that Venonat had some of the coolest shiny colors. Congrats on getting your favorite of another type!

                              Do you have more GenII egg hunts planned, or are you going to go on a mini-Quest to get more of your favorite shinies from different types? That actually sounds like a radically-awesome personal quest idea, haha! Pick your favorite Pokémon from each type, and then find it shiny! :happy2:

                              Congrats on the new shinies, Leòmhann! Awesome going on the Fletchinder - I've never gotten a shiny during one of my playthroughs, but I always thought it would be super cool! I'm used to focusing on the story first and then shiny hunting post-Elite Four with like 400 Ultra Balls, Dusk Balls, and Heal Balls, "lol!" Finding shinies in the middle of exploring a new region must be really thrilling!! I'd be terrified too, though, especially since you can't afford that many Balls early on and your Pokémon are still in danger of fainting! :disbelief:


                              And in the process of writing this post, I've managed a few more Challenger's Cave encounters!! This brings my shiny Sableye ever closer, glistening stars emanating from the elusive Ghost with each step it treads away from its distant future home towards the present, which is its future present home!!! (You see, its future home is, at the present, its present future home, but not its present home, since its present home is its future home, at least until the future, when its future home will become its present home and the present will become its present home, which is, for now, its future home...right? :pink_confused:)

                              I've managed to get my expected encounters until Sableye shines (EEUSS) down from the daunting 81,920 all the way down to...

                              *drumroll*

                              I also managed to get a shiny Munna not long after my Chikorita which now is a competitive Musharna. I'm not sure if I like the fast change in the shiny colouration from Munna being yellow to Musharna being a strange shade of a pinkish purple, but it is still a shiny none the less.

                                I haven’t posted in awhile because I’m currently in my worst drought ever.

                                Just to give an idea I passed my longest ever horde hunt shiny in Frost Cavern recently. My record was 2,776. I’m currently at 2,843 with 303 Smoochum hordes seen.

                                Then Nidoran is up to 2,210 eggs hatched. Surpassing my longest masuda method at 887.

                                Ugh

                                Oh and Sentret is up to 5,524. It surpassed my longest re hunt at 4,661.

                                I have not started fossil resetting for Kabuto as I really want to finish at least one of these hunts before.

                                  Hi ^.^ I'm not active here, although I want to be, but I wanted to start posting my shinies just for fun I guess. Not meaning to brag but I have a lot in ORAS, Y, and Moon (RIP Lost Save File), although with random shinies in other games. I have 81 overall although I may have mis-counted. Anyways last night I really wanted to continue some of my hunts live. Sadly I couldn't get a good setup to work and of course that's when I get my first ever full odds SR Hunt: Shiny Totodile in SS! I'm really happy about it and he's so cute. I'm planning on maybe doing a full shiny playthrough of the game with him as my starter, but we'll see. I don't know who I want me next team member to be. I'm either going to hunt on whatever the route after Cherrygrove City is for either Weedle/Kakuna, Caterpie/Metapod, Hoothoot (I think), Spinarak, and Rattata (If he shows up there at night I can't remember >.<) Or for Mareep on the oute after Violet City. Anyways sorry this was so long! Now hunting for Charmander in Firered and horde hunting for Magnemite/Voltorb in ORAS. Thanks!

                                    My latest Shiny on my Crystal game is:

                                    Sam the Shiny Totodile Hatched after about 90 eggs using the Shiny Ditto for one of the parents. Totodile is a very nice Shiny and just about my favourite Johto Starter. I plan to send him to my Ultra Sun as a Totodile so he can be trained there. As he is a virtual console Shiny he has the Hidden Ability Sheer Force.

                                    I plan to hatch a Shiny Chikorita on Crystal next as it is another starter I like.

                                    Ultra Sun - Natalie

                                    Charles the Male Frillish - Caught in an SOS chain of around 50. He has a Mild Nature and the Water Absorb Ability and is now evolved into Jellicent. Male Jellicent has a very nice Shiny which is a bright green. I prefer Jellicent's female form so will be hunting again for Frillish hoping I get a female one.

                                      Today my longest shiny drought ended. At 6,155 random encounters I found a shiny Kecleon on route 6 in X. It is the 5% for the route. I believe it’s my third 5% shiny after Dratini and Starly in Y but the first for X.

                                      I do already have it so will come back another time.

                                        Yesterday my longest horde hunt ended, at 3,162 hordes shiny Vanillite #5 appeared.

                                        I'm hunting for Smoochum, my previous record for horde hunting was 2,776 hordes for a Weepinbell.

                                        Today I found a 4th shiny Klefki in friend safari at 1,551 encounters looking for a Metang.

                                        My masuda method for Nidoran is at 2300 eggs, I started fossil resetting for Kabuto as well. And I'm random encounter hunting for Weedle in Santalune Forest.

                                          Ah I'm so excited! After a really long drought that included: horde hunting for Spinda for St. Patrick's Day, horde hunting for Slugma/Grimer, SRing for Charmander, and Dexnaving for Ponyta, I FINALLY got a shiny Weedle! I was full odds hunting in SS to continue my shiny playthrough. Now I have Weedle (Soon to bee Beedrill) and Totodile and I'm so happy ^.^ I'm going to continue my hunts for Charmander and for Ponyta, along with my next shiny for my playthrough.
