    Okay, I am pretty close at the part where I beat the e4 in my search for a shiny Latios on Ruby. Just to be sure, do I save right before I watch the TV?

      No you save after you see the tv. Then you search for it. If it isn't shiny, you turn the game off and find it again til it is shiny.

      Oh and I've been here precicely one year.

          Finally!! Shiny Latios is mine! You would not believe the effort that went into catching it. First I false swiped it in about 3 encounters till it was down to one hp. Then I encountered it with my Crobat and used mean look.. kept throwing various pokeballs and healing.. then it used struggle or something like that and I had to turn off and start looking again because it fainted... so I decided to get my Minun and paralyze it.. had to swap it over from another game and with it an extra luxury ball.. got all my luxury balls into this game, 6 of them actually.. not really thinking I would be able to catch it with them.. encountered Latios and paralyzed it, it fled.. then encountered it again and threw 3 luxury balls and the third one caught it!!! (was just lucky as heck it didn't use refresh!) Thanks to both Ryan and metal sonic for the tips, it really did help me to encounter Latios easier. I guess you all know I will have to try to get shiny Latias now.. (I bought an Eon ticket from ebay ages ago) I dread all the resets but Latios needs Latias to be shiny too..(for company!)
          EDIT- what the heck is struggle anyway? It isn't a move that Latios has...

              Struggle is a move that every pokemon has when they run out of PP for all moves.

              Anyways, didn't bring my Advanced to Disneyland, I wouldn't have played it anyway...

              Still no luck with Treecko, and speaking of Treecko... Can SOMEBODY please not search for Treecko, I think (if I'm right) 4-5 people started searching for it the day I announced I was, and all after my post! It's not that I don't want you people to have it, it's just that I wanted to be the first (or whatever) to get it and if a buncha other people are hunting it it kinda puts out the fun of catching it...

                I don't remember exactly how much I paid for my eon ticket.. around 10 dollars I think. It was when they first came out so it has been a while. Back on topic.. I have been searching for a shiny torchic (resetting in ruby) for ages.. I think I know why I have had no luck.. Even though it has been a year since I decided I wanted a shiny torchic, I have probably only spent 10 or so hours total resetting. (more than that, but not nearly enough) I'm going to reset all day tomorrow while I watch tv.. and the next day and the.... you get the idea. Shiny Torchic will be mine!! Mbwahahaha :D

                  Yes - he does and I used to and I might start it up again if I ever start communicating with him... >.>

                  Congratulations on securing the Latios! That is spectacular, I'm very happy for you!

                  I don't know for sure, but I think that's a new shiny? What the heck - I'll do it even if it's not a new shiny *does the new shiny dance*

                  *Hunts the Tauros'*

                  Edit: I was in a dorky mood so I decided to whip out a quick SHC AIM buddy icon

                  Feel free to use it if you want to.

                  I need to get to bed now - bye for now.

                  Edit 2: It's too fast (.1 frame per second) for me to set it at transparant background - it'll glitch if you try to use it on AIM.
                  You could use this toned down one if you want to - it has a gray BG similar to the BG color of AIM boxes.

                    Oh, ok. I put in a request for a SHC card.

                    Ooops... sorry about that KK, I didn't know someone was already hunting Treeko, I'll look for another then.

                    Well, I'm very happy right now! I have gotten A SHINY GENGAR!! I had a Ghastly in Col. and then evolved it into a Haunter. My mom told me to put my games away, and right when I traded it to my Ruby version, it was shiny, and then I traded it to my other ruby and back to get a shiny Gengar!! I'M SOOO HAPPY! ^___^

                    Ummm... do we only put the last evolution stage of the Pokemon on the SHC? I think it would be pointless to put all the stages, takes up too much space. Am I right, or how does that work?

My mom told me to put my games away, and right when I traded it to my Ruby version, it was shiny, and then I traded it to my other ruby and back to get a shiny Gengar!! I'M SOOO HAPPY! ^___^
                          So then you got a Gastly from Colosseum yes? well i've been doing my research and you can't catch Gastly or its evolutions in Colosseum or XD:Gale Of Darkness. And even if you did trade your "Shiny Haunter" to you ruby it would have evolved so there would be no need to trade it again, it seems you have told a lie to us here at the SHC, so i will allow you to come clean and explain yourself or you may risk expultion from the club.

                          Sorry to be so harsh about this but we have to try and trust everyone and as a Co-Owner i try to look into everyones claims to see if there truthfull. You don't need to lie to us, its the fun of finding shinys over how many you have.

                          So moving on from that sour note, Congrats to Kim! your very lucky.. i envy you .__.

                          And i finally hatched my Modest Squirtle so i'll be EV training that from now on firstly in HP so i'll battling Caterpie's and Grimer's, i would be rather happy with a shiny Muk they look rather cool so i would'nt mind owning it, so if one pops up i'll be sure to snag it =D

                            so you want shiny muk eh, yami? i agree, they do look pretty cool but they would have looked better if the color was red or grey _^

                                          shido-kun I beleave it's set when you watch the TV, so save before you watch it.

                                          LDD's update: Lairon is lvl 100, and Victorybell isn't to far from it. I've gone back to hatching ABSOL eggs in Emerald.

                                          Absol eggs hatched: 9
