      I feel the same way, MM. That's why in all my games, I'm diligently soft resetting. Diamond is a bit of an exception because I'll soft reset for something for a week or so maybe, but then the PokeRadar will just pull me back in...

      I broke my Absol chain after getting 13 shiny Absols. None of them look that much better than the one I originally back in October of '07, but they are only at level 20...I really have no plans to chain for anything else besides Electrike (everything else I want to chain is either on Pearl, or I simply don't have the heart to chain for it right now), so I'm going to soft reset for Azelf on Diamond. I would soft reset for Uxie, but it's not in the cavern anymore. I think the time I ran away from it and checked my swarm, I forgot to soft reset and just leave the cavern. I'm quite alright with it, though, as I really only want a shiny Azelf; Mesprit and Uxie would have been bonuses.

      And now I can focus on soft resetting for Turtwig a little bit more. I REALLY want a shiny one.

      Off-topic, I know, but why can't I change my avatar?

      Edit: Nevermine, I was able to change it.

        It's cool. Once I gather the motivation, I may start up card requests again. (I can barely find motivation to finish my own... -.-; It's still missing Probopass and Gallade.) Maybe I could host an American Idol-style contest to appoint a new card maker! >=] Whoever can make cards exactly like mine gets to become an official updater! (PM me for the template, then PM me some of your creations)

        For now, custom creations seem to be the most practical for the time being, seeing as none of the card updaters really have the motivation to make cards. :p (If you already have a card and would like an update, go ahead and PM me.) My next objective would be to reconstruct my vbcode from the closed card shop thread, and save it to my HD to keep from losing it again in the future.

        The big SHC family is back together again! Now all we need is for Aaryn and SGM to come back. (Like that would happen... xP)

        Best thing I can do right now is train up Rarki, my Pachirisu, so he picks them up often.
        Ugg, that's exactly why I'm doing my Chiko hatching on the third-gen. (I can see how that's a bit of a problem for you. *sniff* Poor Tairikiryu and Jyrvakiryu... ;_;)

I loved getting the chained Zubat, but it's not the same as maybe breeding or training Pokémon up to Lvl 100 in a specific region hoping for it to show up...Or the Game Corner, even though I got none there.
        Mmyeah. I was pretty ecstatic when I finally chained shiny Seviper (my first Radar shiny), but once I started chaining to 40 within a single day and fining multiple shinies per chain, things just lost their charm. For now, I'll stick to soft resets/breeding, and raise the shinies I have. (I now have like 5 unique shinies I haven't even touched.)

        I'm wondering if I should change around my Emerald breeding targets now and again. I mean, my Chiko breeders already have near-perfect IVs, so why not work up the IVs of some other species I'm fond of? (or are competitively viable)

        Oh, and gratz to people for finds.

          I made myself a SHC but it was too big so I gotta keep it saved to my photobucket account then go to my uncles house(he lives an hours drive away,on good road conditions) and lower the pixel height/leanth because my ghetto pc can't lol

          Huh on a different forum someone just told me that Roar is a negative priority move, there goes my movest for Shiny Manectric

          Jaja it looks just like yours but I could never figure out what speed you set it at.. It's also just that I don't have the time to do requests or update now with the busy life I have and I suck at animations.. Dx

          Been SRing all day for Articuno but I have to do start on my homework now.. Wah. Maybe I should do a new game on FR since it's being lame. D8

            Wow a lot of people are coming back. Well I don't know if I mentioned it here but I got shiny Hoothoot a week ago and just a shiny Shuckle fresh off the presses.

              Oh ok, so its motivation huh MM? Well I might also suggest that you should change the template, to me it seems kinda old and I dont really like it that much-maybe you should try to do a gradient effect on the cards or on the text itself.

              I hatched another box full of my secret shiny and nope, nothing yet...-.-' I guess Ill get it in the next 5 years...But I also dont want to play anymore because Ive got 436 hours of game time. Ive been playing since June 5th so I guess you can call me obsessed or something but its kinda getting boring, so I also need motivation for shiny hunting.

                take a week or so off to forget it then try again, thats what I usually do, except I usually lose my cartriges so that week turns into a year.

                          Good luck with that If I were you I'd (also) try to breed the Aipom, thats a lot better than finding it in trees. I've tried to get a Shiny Aipom for about three months and I've honeyed every tree every day, but didnt encounter a single shiny I did encounter a Munchlax though

                            Speaking of the trees, does anyone but me miss the headbutt trees from GSC? I loved those and there was this one tree I would always go to on the lake of rage, I knew exactly where it was and it would allways give me a heracross whenever I was there

                              Everyone else is coming back so I'll guess I'll make my apperance to, lol. I haven't found any new shinies, but I have been able to EV train 3 pokemon and I have aquired my bronze trainer card. I still have to EV train 3 more pokemon to complete my team, but man it takes a long time to EV train. Nice to see a handful of you have come back. Happy Hunting.

                                  ...Hello again, pplz! I'm back! FOR REALZ this time. I feel kinda bad for leaving after I said I was coming back, especially since I got welcomed back by people and just... ugh. *fails*
                                  But I'll do my best to keep my word this time. I haven't been very active on my game as of late (but from what I can see, I'm not the only one)... sooo... I haven't caught any new shinies. *ish HUEG dissapointment* >BC
                                  I WILL do better, though! I'll make sure to play my game more and post here more often! So... who remembers me? XD

                                  Maybe whenever the next Pokémon RPG comes out... ;P And gradients take too many colours to retain quality in 256-colour animated GIFs. I'd use MNG, but support for it is still too shoddy.

                                  So I'm Simon? I guess that works considering how totally perfectionist I am... And I almost never watch Americal idol.

                                  Now then. There is a lunar eclipse tonight, so I am taking a momentary break from hunting Chikorita to go after one of my previous secret shinies.

                                      That was how I got my shiny buizel, I had tried for weeks with no results then one day I went to windworks to get an eekid and when I tried to chain it was buizel so I was like "meh, I'll chain it" and I made it up to 56(I think, around there) and got 3

                                          Well I got a shiny Beldum last night after spending the whole day chaining.

                                          I see I'm running out of room for new shinies in my sig.
