    I'm screwing the RNG crap, it's way to confusing.
    I'll just use Ruby and Sapphire for now.
    Maybe dual Regi-set, or maybe go for a Groudon.
    Meh
    GL all.

      Hey MM, I'm now SRing for Totodile om Emerald. When do the numbers of the RNG get picked, right when I received Toto or after? This way I'll know when I need that time to be 3-4 seconds.

        How did you find out the time needed for your RNG Shinies?

          well I used a timer for the amount of time it took for a Zigzagoon to appear in my fastest reset. Since I saw 4 shiny Zigs I assumed that that time period is where the encounters should fall. It worked for the 3 Regis, but now there is no encounter but a retrieval from a pokeball. Since I don't really know when the value are decided for the 2nd Gen starters I can't reset comfortably. I've seen some clones, but I haven't really found my timing yet.

            I really need help then, I still don't get what you mean. How exactly did you calculate the intervals?

              lmao, he's gone!!! Mence Master has been kicked out! I wonder what for? I knew this day was coming! Oh man.....


              o.o


              *ahem*

              Anyway....


              77,000 steps, 10 shiny Caterpie, 68 in the chain. It finally broke when I was just going for it.

              Now I'm working on something else. I don't really want it, but hey, it's the holidays.


              Good luck everyone and congratulations to those who have new shinies!

                Congrats to new shinies.

                Spent all yesterday SRing for shiny Darkrai with no success. I am currently taking a break from SRing and I'm chaining for shiny Snover for Christmas, as it does look like a Christmas tree :p. I already have 2 from a previous chain, but I'd like to get a shiny for Christmas.

                    Because someone photoshopped a PM, and put it up to show a mod, and I was framed falsely.
                    Gonna chain some Gligar or Larvitar today, maybe something else.
                    MUST GET A NEW CHAIN SHINY!

                        I think I'm gonna go on Vacation from SRing for a bit.
                        I'd much rather get Platinum though, for my Platinum Giratina!
                        I'm really unsure if I should drop the Dialga hunt though, and go off after Uxie. Maybe I'll just SR until I capture a powerful one! Then I'll get Uxie!
                        Sound like a plan?
                        P.S. Gonna chain Gligar or Caterpie

                          Ok. I doubt that'll ever happen. At least thanks for telling us what happened, and believe it or not I'm glad you're back with us....


                          Yeh.


                          I have a new SR target, but I gotta work my way up to her. The reason why I'm going to try and get this one is because I'm one of the few people who can, so why not?
                          So I'll be playing through one of my games to get to that point. But I'm also chaining something and I need to get back to hatching Magikarp. So I have 3 on my list at the moment I want to get.


                          Good luck everyone and Happy Holidays if I don't make it back in a few days.

                            Her... I'm guessing Cresselia or Latias?

                            Getting ready to gear up and start a chain... phew. It's been such a long time since I've chained anything.

                              Hi everyone, it's been like a week or two without showing around, but I'm back with new news, I got a shiny turtwig 12 hours ago. It's a serious nature, I'll put the pics later.

                              By the way

I was in total shock when I saw it on the screen, I didn't believe it was real until I saw the sparkles. I jumped up where I was sitting and was shouting yes while dancing around my room.
                              My strategy was to use Spore and put it to sleep, then use Foresight on the next turn, so my Super Fang would hit it. I used it(Super Fang) twice before Giratina woke up and proceeded to faint my Smeargle.
                              I know it's a late but, congratulations you finaly got it; and also happy birthday.

                              well, I guess I'll continue playing diamond for some time to train my new shiny. Merry Christmas everyone.
                              Congratulation for new shinies and good luck in your huntings.

                              PD: I'm still reading what's new and what I missed. see you.

                                Getting ready to gear up and start a chain... phew. It's been such a long time since I've chained anything.
                                Yeah. Consider it a Christmas truce. Or something.
                                Something's changed about you a little, which is why I'm cutting you some slack.


                                Either way....

                                Spoiler:

                                Gotcha! Shiny Stantler was caught!


                                One down, two to go.
                                Video coming soon, as always.

                                On Emerald version, SRing slowly is always a good thing, since it enlarges the "population" of PVs you're drawing from, raising the odds that somewhere in there is a shiny.

                                Those ribbon cables send the data to the screens. Breaking one of those will make a screen go blank, or mostly blank. Messed-up soft resetting couldn't be caused by that. (Or you're talking about a different DS.)

                                Right when it goes do-do-do-ding! You've received a Totodile! Since there's that screen of text, you'll probably be drawing from mostly a different population of PVs.

                                I gave up on SRing a Chikorita this way, so I wouldn't hold out. We should also all know how I spent 40,000+ SRs on Treecko on this Emerald and had nothing to show for it.

                                Once I break my ***** chain, I'll go SR some Rotom, since he looks enough like a Christmas ornament.

                                  New shiny this morning. I'll post pics around 8AM PST as I've got work at 9 and I have to get to bed. Yay, first Christmas Shiny.

                                    I was sitting on a 42 chain of Snover last night, and after 3 hours of resetting, I put the DS in sleep mode. I woke up this morning, and increased my chain to 43 when a shiny patch finally appeared(I had the chain to 40 for several hours before I got frustrated and increase the chain). I got my first shiny Christmas tree, a male shiny Snover . Doesn't matter if its chained, still love it anyway.

                                    I'll try for 1 more, then I'll get back to SRing for shiny Darkrai. I didn't do a lot of resets yesterday, so I'm going to try and see if my game is lucky and finally gives me the shiny.

                                    EDIT: Broke the chain at 67, so I ended up with a Calm, Quick Tempered, shiny male Snover. Now that that is done, back to the Darkrai hunt. SHINE Darkrai SHINE!! Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and you enjoyed your gifts .

                                        Well the Emerald RNG worked again. Even though I kept on seeing a Brave female Totodile every 10 resets about. This guy showed up in the nick of time.

                                          Well, a damn safe patch broke my chain.
                                          Chaining sucks.
                                          Congrats D-King
                                          Maybe I'll screw around with the RNG Today.
                                          How many seconds of waiting must your RNG be for a shiny Totodile?
                                          Is it the exact same thing as a normal starter? (As in the beginning of the game)

                                          Erm, congrats on the lovely shiny Totodile, as well as all of the other new shinies. And I have an SP just like that.

                                            hi guys, I was curious to see if this still existed and how was it doing... as I see.. you guys are still shiny hunting... Wow... Never thought I'd be part of something so "big".

                                            My life has changeed a lot. I don't eveen play pokemon anymore. Don't have time... but oh well.. I drop by once in a while (BIG, BIG while). My neverending hours of resetting and hatching, my endless walks through high grass seem to be over.

                                            Maybe I will try to hunt again when a new pokemon game comes out? who knows...

                                            I see Metal Mario is still here. Greetings to him, he has done a lot for the club.

                                            Merry Christmas to you all.
