    All of a sudden, I want to complete the Regi Trio.

    So I'm soft resetting for a shiny Regirock. Wish me luck.

      First of all, thanks for the link Fufu.

      After calculating my Hippopotas' IV's I've decided to scrap EV training it and train up my mons to start SRing for Cresselia.

      Just about to get to work on the latest SHC Cards, so if your expecting one, take a look in a few hours time.

      Don't think theirs anything else I need to address...

      Congrats to those who found shinys and good luck to everyone else.

      EDIT: on second thought, I'll finish the cards tomorrow, I'm too tired D:

      Hey guys. It may have taken five days, but I got her.

      The elusive inital Bling -- caught on tape!
      ZOMG! Shiny Absol appeared!!
      Go! Luxury Ball!
      It escaped. So pretty!
      Repeat Ball. =/


      Screen 1 | Screen 2 | Screen 3

      I hope you like the name, LDD! I fought with countless broken chains over the past five days, combined with total lack of time and a cold, but I finally found one that would kind of actually go. It was maybe the second or third chain I had that went as far as 30, so I was being quite cautious as to which patches I entered. I eventually got it to 39, intending as much to find a shiny as to lengthen the chain. Then, it appeared. It was kind of pinkish in hue. I switched my syncher in front and ran upstairs, only to find my PC off and in need of a boot. When it was finally ready, I started recording and entered the grass, only to find my lovely, a female Absol with Super Luck! (suitable ability for a shiny xP) The fricken thing kept using Taunt, keeping my Breloom from Sporing the bugger! Luckily, I had my Rock Climbing Bibarel (who, to those who watched the Dialga video would realize, also knows Yawn and Super Fang and still does), so I got it to sleep after switching her in. Four broken Luxury Balls later, I just turfed a Repeat Ball and she was caught!

      Caught 5:56 pm and no it's 7:28. What a bum I is.

      Zomg Mithos, you never told me you have a shiny Cresselia or even shiny Suicune. It's still hard to soft reset for them.
      Edit: Nevermind. You're the Cresselia gal, so congratulations!

      The rule was that traded shinies can count if they're from someone you know personally. That rule was eventually abused, so I dunno. Maybe we can be tyrants and pick and choose which traded shinies count? :D

      I got mine from Lake Verity (or whichever one's the one up there). There's no blizzard to mess with your chaining. If I ever get another Delibird swarm, I may just tough it and put up with the blizzard. It shouldn't be too bad in a dark room with no movement, but that's definitely not something for bus rides and the like.

      Good luck to all, and I might actually do some cards in the next while.

        Blayze: Congratulations on the Golbat!!

        MetalMario: Like I said, congratulations on the Absol!!

        As for me, I finally got something new!! O:
        At 11:38PM, I caught my target at #49; at 11:44PM, my chain was broken at #52 by Zubat, making it my 3rd highest chain.

        Say hello to Aoshi, my soon to be Gallade!!

        Having a Modest nature -.-', it would be better to evole it into a Gardevoir, and not a Gallade, but since I hunt for the Pokemon, and not the stats, whose gonna complain? I also seem to only catch Shiny Ralts with the Trace ability... Oh well, I'm off for tonight! Good luck to all!!

        Trace is better. You can switch into stuff like Vaporeon's Surf. And it would pain me so to evolve a Modest Kirlia into a Gallade. I'm a bit of a stat nazi and not particularly fond of Gallade.

          That is true, unless when fighting a Slaking... Ans since I do want a Gallade, that's going to be a tough evolution for me (but I just can't see Gardevoir as males...) Good luck to your next hunt, MetalMario.

            Congrats on your shinies, MM and Shadow.

            Edit: MM, personally, I would've chosen Jolly over Adamant for Absol...

                    DS, I'll race you for shiny Regigigas. Got a shiny Regice and shiny Regirock through a trade yesterday, so I can hunt for it...I'm still gonna try to complete the shiny Regi quartet by myself, though. Good luck, everyone.

                            It's when you press start+select+a+b in the advanced gen, and start+select+l+r in the 4th gen, pressing them resets the game and reloads it from your last save.
                            It's very useful if you want a shiny legendary or a shiny one off pokemon like the starters drifloon etc, you just save in front of whatever mon you want and sr till it's shiny.
                            But fyi you didn't need to post in a shiny topic to ask that, typing soft resetting into google would probably have gotten you the same results, and probably in more detail

                              ^ I answered him in a PM a while ago. As shouldn't have been in here.

                              Just chained 15 Absol with no shiny. Is my highest chain so far for it.

                                TwilightBlade congrats on the Shiny Duo of ho-oh and Lugia. I've been after them for years with the mystic ticket.

                                Anyway I got a few new shinies. ATimid Farfetch'd and Modest Krabby.

                                I'm currently SRing for Palkia.

                                Thankies. :3
                                Congrats on your shinies and I hope you have better luck on them and the Palkia. Maybe I'll trade my twin birdies for your shiny Latias and Articuno since I've failed in getting them. XD

                                Can't stay too long now but I wish everyone luck on their hunts and congrats on the shinies. Love the Absol and especially her nickname, MM. Mine were called Shade (Male), Twilight (F), and Dusk (F). STD yay. 8D *shot* Still need to nickname the rest of my group... And fit my new lovely shiny card into my sig sometime. :3

                                First it was Weavile, now this? I don't care if you think Jolly's better! I LIKE MINE ADAMANT!! >=[

                                Anyway, I just did some time calculations and stuff, so prepare to be amazed:

                                Time to do one soft reset for a Chimchar on Pearl version:
                                1 minute 27 seconds.
                                Time to hatch one Chikorita egg out of a party of five eggs and one Magma Armor poke:
                                1 minute 40 seconds.
                                The first was a simple measurement. The second was the average of five--the right amount to remove any error caused by the unevenness of receiving the eggs from the daycare man.

                                If you can get Chimchar, Fufu, I can get Chikorita.

                                  I read it and it floored me, MM. I don't have the words for it really. *bows* And she's Adamant! Perfect! Absolutly perfect!

                                  I had no luck with my swarm of Absol the other day. *sighs* That reminds me, I need to check the swarm for today, maybe I'lll have some luck. To many outbreaks of Dunsparce and Slakoth lately for my liking.

                                      Hey everyone. Sorry for the absence but with a combination of school, battling my sweet new team, and the fact I have had no new shinies since my last post I didn't have much to do here.

                                      I see alot of new shinies have appeared. Congrats to you all. When I can hunt for shinies though I focus on Misdreavus. And also I still havent been able to find a camera. Dang it!

                                        I have tomorrow off school. Been back 2 days and am finding it hard to fit everything in. I have a few things in front of Shiny hunting at the minute.

                                        Will see what my swarm is tomorrow and do some chaining for it.
