    That's the problem with Bronzong. It doesn't have a good recovery move but man it's pretty good at .. what it does. Looks pretty cool too, I LOVE the green.

    If you decide to go after one, be sure to take a Magnet Pull lead Pokemon with you (I.E. dead Lv. 1 Magnemite) to make them appear more, otherwise you'll throw fits like I did for 2 days before it came to my attention I could do that.....
    .. and once it did I made it to 40 in one swoop and got 12 Shiny Bronzors, the most I've gotten out of a chain.

    My longest chain though is Nincada at 82.

    So anyway, there we were, about to become pipesqueek food.

    ^Epic video of the Buneary. I could've done a little bit more audio editing on it, but I like that. A lot.

    Now I wish I could change my opinion on Buneary to reflect that. I have been crushed, stomped, and tossed aside, but I'm hoping that night time is the right time, because Murkrow comes out. That could be a bad thing.... or a good thing.

    It tweaks the encounter rates. Adds another Pokemon...

    Buneary is just a tick off of Misdreavus, at 19%. Add another Pokemon to the mix.... I'm hoping that the 19% stays 19%, which actually makes my chances go higher.

    I still miss you baby and I don't want to miss a thing

    Some spankin' video, dude! I love it and the song is gonna play in my background as I try at my current, sporradic...
    SHINY SWELLOW HUNT!

    I don't really like it THAT much, but a Shiny that appears in my dreams and I don't have it? MUST GET!

    ...Reminds me of that day where I dreamt with a Shiny Metapod in Fire Red and during that day I actually got a Shiny Tentacool (That would be Tairikiryu, one of the Tentacruels remembered in my sig through that banner )

    So, right now, I have around 170 Super Repels, Jolly the (Jolly) Espeon for Nature and my stash of Quick Balls, hehe. Wish me luck!

    YES, I'm quite happy with what I got. I will now proceed to putting it in the Day Care, and reset my swarm so that I may go chain a shiny Drowzee.

    Never mind, I just remembered that I still have some Feraligatr at the Day Care...guess I'll just keep it deposited. My new shiny Krabby will have to wait to be chained.

    Oh yeah, it's female, too.

    Congrats on the Shiny Krabby! It's such an underrated Pokémon and the Shiny actually looks pretty good! And those IVs...It's like my Crobat, he's got at least 29 in Speed.

    Hehe, your Shinies are pretty cool indeed! I need to find myself a way to take pics of my Shinies...
    I probably have a webcam hidden around here somewhere, would that work for screenshots? Since I don't have a mobile phone.

        Well it's nice to see I'm not the only one trying for a shiny legendary Still nothing on my dialga....I've made it through watching the entire first season of pokemon while reseting....that's 83 episodes plus the first 7 of season 2....so 90 20min episodes of pokemon while I soft reset and no shiny.....QQ (crying eyes)

        I sympathize. I haven't reset for a legendary, but I did reset for torchic, and it took me over a year. I do have a shiny legendary, pure dumb luck. I almost had a heart attack when my Latios showed up shiny. I was so nervous I forgot what to do and it fled! It's one of those things I wouldn't believe if it hadn't happened to me. (But it did and I did the shiny dance all day when I caught it. :D)

        P.S. I do want to reset for shiny legendaries soon.. I dread resetting in Diamond or Pearl.. it takes soooo long.

          Lol shiny dance hehehe cute!! I bet I would be soooo shocked if I found a lengendary that was shiny right away.....omg over a year It better not take me that long I wanna get my national dex and pokeradar so I can chain for shinies!!! I'll prob give up if i don't get it by next week....2 weeks of reseting is kinda excessive and I don't want it that badly I just figured it would be pretty cool to say I have a shiny Legendary.

            Just popping in to say thanks about my video. =)

            I got my Buneary chain back to 23.... Taking it as slow as I can.

            It makes me think of my assumption that the game knows what we're doing, and it either tricks us, or during different levels of chaining (i.e. 10, 20, 30, 40) it changes it's strategy to screw you over.

            Or something. "That's the feeling I get, anyway."

            oh, and omg, congrats and good luck!

                I am in a chain of Electrike at the minute. I have been in it since I woke up this morning. I am now at 27 and don't want to break it. Hoping to get a blue Electrike because I think they look good. After this it's back to SRing for Torchic.

                EDIT: no shiny. chain broke at 39. I couldn't believe it. I hate shellos.

                  Well, I'm still chaining for Drowzee. I've had multiple chains break, but for some reason, I quickly seem to get over them. Late last night (well, VERY early this morning, rather), I found a shiny Drowzee on an eight chain, I believe (shiny patches look so beautiful in the rain *_*). I chained up to about 20, then I put the game in sleep mode. When I woke up, I continued chaining, but the chian broke at twenty-something. Completely unaware of the shiny Drowzee I had captured early, I soft reset my game out of frustration. At first I was angry, but the chances that the Drowzee had a good nature and useable IVs (seeing as how I only caught one) were extremely nil, so I'm over it now.

                  Regardless, I want a shiny Hypno so badly. So continue chaining for Drowzee, I must!

                  Good luck, everyone.

                    I hate Shellos too. 1. I have a shiny Gastrodon. I don't like it. It looks like a normal one. It has good IVs and a Modest nature... it was the first Pokemon I got while chaining because I didn't know what I was doing at all.
                    I'm so afraid I'll get a shiny Shellos again somehow. They usually break my chains when I'm in those areas too....
                    Anyway, sorry man. @_@; That's happened to me....... but usually I'm so afraid, I just wait for a shiny patch for the 40th one (or sometimes, it comes to me).

                    If you decide to try again, I hope you make it all the way there!

                    Good luck, everyone.

                    Looks like we're all having the same luck now. It's contagious!
                    I usually move out of the way after I catch a shiny, then save, then continue onward. Kinda wasteful but I always go prepared with 999 Max Repels. =)

                    My Buneary chain is at 28.... again....... I'm afraid to move, but I'm gonna have to eventually. I found 5 last night for like the 20 minutes I played it to bring it up to that 28...

                    Surely, I can do this now. I just want to move on..

                    Shiny Gligar is calling and I'd like to actually turn my DS off for a while.

                    edit: 32 now and about 22,500 steps lol.

                    If I lose this (which I won't), it will chop my tail off and break my soul. XD'

                    The reason why I won't lose it, is because of the L word.

                    Occasionally, a long "L" shape of grass patches will appear, lacking any of the rare grass, and is inside the boundaries. I've encountered two of those so far in this 32 chain.

                    I just want to make it to 38...

                    32 isn't enough, because I had a chain of Ralts once at 32 and reset the radar for 3 days and never found one, then broke the chain lol.

                    I needed a break that why I'm here. I'm not really nervous, just anxious, which makes me jittery, which makes me sweat a little, which makes me more prone to false steps, and more prone to take chances.
                    So it's break time. o__o

                    edit 5 PM:

                    I got 33, and then the 34th was a shiny patch. =D It's Jolly too! JOLLYJOLLYJOLLY!
                    Eases the pain a little, but the lighting changed on me so I'm stopping until later tonight.
                    Yay! But I'm by no means done. If it wants to give me shiny patches all the way to 40, then go right ahead.

                    edit: 8 PM:

                    Oh my god.

                    It broke.

                    I was going for 35, and it broke. It was a Beautifly that did it, they shouldn't even come out at night, but that's not the point...

                    That one, the one I went to, should have been safe.

                    They were all common.
                    There was one two spaces away from me to the right...
                    There was one just to the northwest of that one...
                    There was one to the upper left of me, away from those two (but not too far away)
                    And the one I went to was several spots away, farther than the others. I was confident, and then it crushes my expectations.

                    I'm gonna get the white flag coming by. I'm gonna give it one last shot, just doing what I'd normally do.

                    This sucks.

                        Well everytime you enter a patch it's more likely that you'll continue the chain. But luck is also a factor, as broken chains happen a lot for me when the patch should be fine. So the only thing that I can't count on is luck. I say keep trying because if your like me, once you get that shiny you'll never go for it again.

                              I already have two of them so far. I need more for selection. Once I do that, Buneary-B-Gon.

                              Also, I notice the words at the end of your name are actually my name at another forum, wow.

                              I'm trying something new this time that I haven't before. It's the Uncommon Grass at night. So we'll see what happens. I have 10 so far. I'm gonna try hard to get there either today or tomorrow that way I can gather up as many as I can by Sunday morning..... ... ....

                              Buneary's supposed to be easy but I guess it's because everything else has the same rate.
                              Which is why I'm hoping that my latest strategy works...
                              (I need just one more even if I don't make it to 40..)

                              Thanks for the encouragement everyone and I wish you the same.

                              Just posting to check in. I have been lurking, but haven't had much to chat about.

                              I have begun EVing shiny Palkia by ... chaining Abras! Not really looking for a shiny since I already have one.

                              I've also been raising a new hunter Pokémon--Breloom, of course! Sadly, I discovered that the Shroomish line cannot learn False Swipe from the TM (why?), so I had to rebreed. I did manage to get a Poison Heal Jolly Breloom with Spore/False Swipe, and she's in her 20s right now. Once I start chaining, I'll do something of a low level (Mareep!) and give Breloom the Exp.Share.

                              So my Radar hit list looks something like: Mareep, Seviper, Sneasel, Absol. Other critical (if you can call shiny Pokémon "critical") targets include a new shiny Rotom, Dialga, and a Chikorita, Beldum, and Rayquaza from the third-gen. Oh and shiny Mesprit is looking pretty nice, too!

                              GL to everyone for stuff. Hopefully I'll get a third shiny before May Mayhem is up!

                                I recently caught a shiny male Zigzagoon.I decided to just copy the show and nicknamed him Token.As for Zira,the shiny Shinx I caught a week ago has now evolved into a Luxio.I have a feeling I'll have fun training both of them!

                                    *bows*

                                    I almost couldn't sleep last night I was so overjoyed.

                                    That "1" means I've already gotten 1 shiny out of it so far. I think back in the 30s there was a shiny patch but it was at the bottom and I didn't see it well except the corner of the grass.... I wasn't sure at all, but I think it was, because shiny grass move just a tick longer than the common grass....

                                    Nevertheless, if I had went in, it could've screwed me up, not to mention if it was, I may have failed again later.

                                    But that's all behind me now.

                                    I have to see how many shiny Bunearies I can get within a 24 hour period. (Cuz I'm going to the Darkrai event Sunday. Kinda lucky in a way)

                                              Rash, huh....

                                              If the stats kept changing, it probably could've been SR'd for for a shiny one, which is what I'm going to attempt.

                                              For the event you just go there, turn on your game to the "Continue" menu and select an option that pops up (or mystery gift), and then you download it's Wondercard, just like PBR's Electivire, Magmortar and Surfing Pikachu. Apparently, the man inside the PokeMart gives it to you....

                                              Rash....

                                              At least it raises Special Attack and isn't useless.

                                              edit: 600!!! This is SPARTA! x2

                                                No offense but thats the stupidest thing i've ever heard, assuming such a thing after only two resets is foolish, especially concerning an event which in all likelyhood will never come round again, you should have done more than two resets before you just got a rash one, somewhere in the region of 50 should have confirmed if the nature was set or not, which i massively doubt for one big reason, why would nintendo give out a darkrai with a set nature and then set that nature as rash? a nature that is far from the best nature for it, take the electivire and magmortar for instance, they had pretty good natures.

                                                But until someone else comes back from the event and confirms that the natures are set(or not) we can't be sure, nevertheless you should have done way more resets than you did.
