    Haven't had a chain past 20 since about 1AM last night. Was up till around 2AM chaining Absol. I am never very lucky with shiny's. I have no idea why though. Was awake at 6 this morning so less than 5 hours sleep. Went straight to chaining when I got up with my highest being 15. Will carry on looking later. I am to tired to look now.

    Good luck to everyone on their hunts!
    Not me. I was resetting on like 39 for my Absol. And why is everyone going after Absol now? =/

    LDD, one of my motivators for going after Absol was payback for you getting Seviper so many years ago. >=] Now that you have one, that was short lived. Congrats anyways. Shiny Absol is like yours, and it's only fair given all those Oddishes and Pooches you found on Emerald. xD

    There were no 21HP Bold female Chikorita in box #18. Now I must log all their stats, release them, and pick my breeders for box #19.

      Absol has been one that I have wanted back from Ruby. But i hated breeding and finding it in wild would be so rare. NOw it my chance to get it. I think you started off a trend though.

        lol. My favorite shiny is Ursaring. I pretty much looked for him forever, and on my birthday I finally caught him.
        Anyway, is SRing for a Shiny Turtwig worth it? His shiny is decent, but not great. Just asking before I restart my Pearl.

          Hi, I'd like to join, But I'm confused, Is there a way to make shiny hunting easier in D/P, And The Terms "Chaining" And "Shiny Patch" Are a bit confusing to me also.

          I hope I don't sound too noobish.

            Can't you breed for your Turtwig. Would save you restarting your game then.
            I have always wanted a Bagon I have caught myself I have one I got in a trade but that doesn't count here.

              Lol yeah alot of people always like how a shiny looks when some else gets it and they decide to try for one too. Lol same thing happened with me and Giratina. It was mostly me and Storm_dragoon going after giratina on SPPf, then when I finally got mine like 4 more people decided to hunt it too xD Good luck with chikorita breeding! I've never tried hatching for a shiny on 3rd gen and on. I suspect my first will be manaphy when I finally decide to hunt it, though I also want to breed for sableye on emerald but I haven't made time for it. Lol like Fufu I've got a ton of targets but I'm not as organized as to when to hunt them. I mostly hunt them sporadically except for my main target which I always hunt (this time being Regigigas). Continuing Sring for Regigigas. Good luck to everyone on their hunts!

                Well, there's the fact that is probably one of the five best shinies. That, and the fact that is 'easy' to hunt for.

                  The blue rose. Take a look at the chaining guide in the D/P section. PM me if you still don't get it.
                  As for finding shinies easier. Some people say that getting a high chain increases chances of finding a shiny. But it hasnt been confirmed whether it is true. I think it is just because when you chain you see a few patchs shake.

                  About to start chaining Absol again.

                    Good point, but I'm only at the first gym in Pearl and beaten Diamond. I don't think I'll restart, but the bad thing is I don't have anyone in the Turtwig line. GTS is horrible for looking for anything, they always want a Mew.
                    Anyway, going to hunt for Buneary.

                    Well Absol's only #17 on my personal list. That list is topped by Meganium and Porygon2. :D

                    I got my new female Chikorita breeder to L31 in the Gardevoir base. (I'd make a Latios base but I don't have any RSE games I'm willing to restart.) I randomly bred a female with flawless Speed (from non-flawless parents), but she's Lonely. =/

                    Now starting box 19.

                      Did I actually say anything about getting a high chain increasing the chance of finding a shiny? Besides, whether or not it's been "confirmed" doesn't matter; chaining is undoubtedly an easier way to get shinies. You just have to be good at it.

                      MM, Porygon2 is #3 on my list, and #2 is Ninetales. I'm sure you all know who #1 is reserved for...

                      I just checked my swarm, and it's Surskit. I don't think it's worth leaving Regigigas to chain for.

                        I was talking to Blue Rose. It didn't have anything to do with you. So no idea where that came from. It does make it easier as you see more than one most of the time.

                        Good luck to everyone on there hunts.

                                yo blue rose. Soft Reseting is when u save the game before meeting legendaries or getting ur starter. If u dont get a shiny make sure u save before meeting it then if its not press START, SELECT L&R at the same time.

                                  Good luck on the hunts everyone. Nothing new for me again. ^,..,^

                                  The Blue Rose, it might be easier to soft reset for Cranidos... So if you did that, I would gladly race you for it (Racing is basically 2+ shiny hunters look for the same pokemon and whoever gets it first wins.. a cookie 8D). But if you prefer hatching, good luck on that and it's fine.

                                  Also going after Latias, Hoppip, maybe Drowzee too one day since my friend likes it. Can't ever make up my mind. |D

                                        I got a new shiny tonight. A level 29 Wingull off of Route 221 after a 28 chain. It has a Hardy nature. Gonna spend the night evolving it into Pelipper. Congrats on all new shinies.

                                            hey guys thx for the comments,

                                            here are the stats for the Grumpig that I have now


                                            LV: 76
                                            HP: 227
                                            ATK: 96
                                            DEF: 142
                                            SPD: 203
                                            SP.ATK: 167
                                            SP.DEF: 214

                                            what i do with my shinies is i first battle the Elite Four with it over and over again with my Rayquaza with an Amulet Coin and my new shiny with Exp. Share. Then I get the experience and it levels it up pretty fast. Then after that I use the money i got to buy stuff like Protien and Zinc. So finally I get it up to a level that I think is good and just stop and start hunting for my next shiny.

                                            i hope this strategy helps other trainers too :D

                                            btw guys i only need five more posts till i can get a card so can u guys help by posting

                                            thx and bye
