The battle took a while, as it wouldn't stay in the Luxury Balls I was throwing at it(yet when catching normal Spiritomb, it would get in the first ball I threw). My synchronize worked, and it has a Modest nature.

My next target to get to shine will be the random One Island shiny I am hunting for. Congrats to new shinies everyone.
Congrats on the beautiful shiny Spiritomb! Nice nature, too. ^__^

Good luck to all.
I believe I read a Japanese article about this earlier and the RNG is based on the DS clock (unless my memory is awful :x), but hopefully, it can work to our advantage..

Good luck on the Tangela hunt, and good luck to everyone else on there hunts. I've shifted from Emerald hunting to simply breeding in Diamond, in preparation for my Platinum team.

Also, about the discussion of shiny patches breaking chains: That happened to me too. My chain broke immediately after I caught my first shiny Shinx. I was kinda ticked, but I was under the... Thingy you can jump over. A brown cliff? I'll look up the route later, as my laptop is slow. <<

    It is on Smogon.
    And as soon as a new day starts at 12 A.M., the RNG resets. So that means you only have 1,640*>1,000 numbers to have either a shiny number or a number with good values. Otherwise, you'll have to make a new profile. I have also heard that it is only possible to get a shiny starter, although Storm, oddsok (From SPPf), and halcyon (YouTube) have all gotten Platinum shinies...

      2,430 hatched. I wonder if I could break 2,600 tomorrow....
      Yeah!! Hatching for the win, and I ain't giving up anytime soon. Good luck as well.

      Heh, lucky for me, I have no idea what the Random Number Generator is or how it works (I'm not that good with deep in-game mechanics). ^^;

      Good luck to all.

        My luck is back :D:


        I decided a few minutes ago to SR for Mudkip in Ruby. When I sent out the 8th Mudkip, it was purple :D. Shiny Mudkip appeared in Ruby and I wasn't really trying. I didn't think I would get it, not when I got shiny Spiritomb yesterday.

        This is my first shiny in this game, so I'm pretty pumped right now. Mudkip has a Timid nature, and is male(I was hoping for a female, but a shiny is better than no shiny).

        More pictures:

        No devices
        Shiny Mudkip, Timid nature

        I'll be adding the video's pretty soon, after I upload them. Congrats to new shinies guys, can't wait for Platinum.

          Congratulations on the back-to-back Shiny Mudkip. =D

          Seems that you are in the lead for March Madness. ^_^


          EDIT: Just hit 1022 hatched, wrapping up my second set of 511 bred Eggs. Releasing all the hatched ones right now to begin R3, later.

              Though its really fun defeating Kens with the taunt master Dan :P...Saikyo!
              Haha I main as Ken. If you had a ps3 I would play you. I am not as poor as most people with him that spam shoryuken.

              Anyway. I have been way to busy with school work recently to do any hunting. I get assignments every Monday all due in the following Monday so I never have time to hunt but with the release of Platinum today. I will pick up hunting again in 2 weeks when I am on holiday.

                Thanks for the congrats guys .

                Well I'm eagerly awaiting the release of Platinum. I couldn't go get it this morning, but when we drop mom off to work I'm picking up my 2 copies. I'll be playing through one copy, and I will be SRing for shiny Chimchar on the second copy.

                I'm also going to do a test and see if I can transfer the Darkrai wondercard from my Japanese Platinum to my English Platinum. If it is possible, I will possibly SR for another shiny Darkrai. I doubt it will work, but I'll cross my fingers that it does.

                Congrats to new shinies everyone.

                EDIT: Got my Platinum, currently playing through the game. I wonder if I'll get a random shiny while playing through the game .

                Be more specific. If it's *just* that the clock seeding restarts everyday then we have nothing to worry about. There are 86400 seconds in a day, and a set of about 4000 possible random values you can get for each of them. (We know from the Emerald fiasco that going through the menus to get a Pokémon gives a distribution about 200 samples wide, and Platinum (should) seed(s) from the time spent on the title screen as well, so there's another factor of 200.)

                So even if this is true, we're still looking at a distribution about 345600000 samples wide--waay more than you need to get that perfect shiny.

                Now then, March has just gotten a little bit more mad. Saw this guy on my DS while watching Mythbusters:



                page 1 page 2 page 3 osu!

                Ironically enough, I found shiny Palkia while watching Mythbusters. And I don't watch the show *that* much! D=

                But alas, there's no rest for the wicked. I'm moving straight on to hunting Rotom (Pearl) and Turtwig (Platinum). I'll be sure to sit down with this guy and EV him soon enough. (I was so relieved to find my Modest synch worked! It would be so sad if it didn't, seeing how my old one was Modest.)

                  :O
                  Congrats, you finally did it!
                  EDIT: By that, I mean got your revenge :P
                  And yeah, I've heard that Platinum's not going to even be terrible. Yay!
                  So still nothing new for me... This is retarded. I deserve a new shiny D:<
                  I'm going to raise up a Wigglytuff or Parasect on LeafGreen, along with a Cubone so I can hunt the birds. My first one will be Articuno, since I have already obtained a normal one on FireRed. Hopefully the final 3 days of March, which I have off (Weekend + 1 Week Day) will give me some fun.
                  Good luck to all.

                    man my bro is taking to long to get my platinum from gamestop D<. In the mean while, in LG I'm just running around the cave hoping for a shiny.

                          Lol myth that you can't get back a lost shiny, BUSTED!
                          Congrats on the new dialga MM!!

                          And awesome Tangela too IHC, lol long hunt over.

                          I picked up platinum yesterday but was pretty mad that I didn't get the pre-order bonus Giratina figure since the guy told me I was supposed to get it when I made the reservation. Bull simply bull. Every other time I've reserved something it's always been get the Bonus thing when you pick up the game. There was no mention on the wall poster that said pick up with pre-order or anything like that. So yeah I'm pretty mad as I really wanted that figure :/ Least I managed to pick up a used GBA SP classic edition for $15 cdn at a fleamarket (EB games/Gamestop have them at $40), yay more platforms to SR on, and I don't have to worry about damaging it like my Pikachu edition one.
                          Anyways going to resume my Turwig hunt for Jpn platinum. I really hope march madness hits me next :P.

                              Hunting Numel and mad Irony happened:
                              [/SPOILER]

                              WAD!! 6:20PM ish I was watching Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares and I went to get a glass of juice right as I was encountering something on my game. I sit back down and look at the screen, and go "Wait? what?! is that Machop brown?! Oh !%@$ Shiny!!!" I paralyzed it, then weakened it slowly with magikarp tackles, then I threw a Premier Ball and it broke out. A 2nd one did the trick and was caught. I nicknamed him Hulk since its evolved forms are green meh.
                              Behold my "new" GBA SP retro, Ruby in the slot!
                              It's Quiet...too Quiet *shifty eyes*
                              Weaksauce stats

                              The meh thing about it is I already have a shiny Machop that I caught on my FR back in '07. Though it is a female one (with better nature and stats :p), so now I've got a male companion for it. Lol least its a new shiny and for march madness too yay! my drought since January is over. I'm hoping Numel will follow soon. Or maybe even Turtwig in Platinum...

                                Be careful that it doesn't steal your bike, or you might have to run after it in a pink jumpsuit.

                                So, Dialga took 5393 resets total--less than half as many as the first time, but still not spectacularly lucky. Turtwig on Platinum is my current priority, with a bit of Rotom at night. I'd do more Rotom, but it's annoying taking Pearl with me, since I can't SR on it throughout most of the day.

                                (I love you, Firefox! I closed the tab with this post by mistake, but Undo Close Tab brought back the form text! )

                                And GJ with the Tangela, IHC, just in case I didn't mention.

                                  Wow, congrats on the Machop D_S! I've kinda been itching to get one in FR/LG, but I'm not to optimistic with the shiny Geodude popping out and exploding probability... xP
                                  And yeah, you said it 2 or 3 times, xD
                                  But man, it's so cool that you finally avenged Dialga! Now to re-conquer Kyogre!
                                  Thanks for all the congrats as well, everyone!

                                  So now I'm gonna divert from one of the Birds on LeafGreen for the time being, and now I gotta focus on training up a Parasect/Wigglytuff and Marowak/Scyther for Sing/False Swipe. Or, I could pray and hope for the best with my GBA Link. I kinda lost my urge to hunt on FireRed, due to going 180 Hours of Gameplay (About 20-40 hours are wasted/storyline play)... But that's still a lot. LeafGreen, with 20 hours is so kind as to spit out a fast shiny... I'll get its exact IVs sometime this weekend, but I know that it has a better attack than special attack... Ah, well. Still, I was EXTREMELY close to making that my longest hunt ever. Thank goodness it shone before that! :P
                                  So yeah, I'm gonna LeafGreen Hunt only now, after I trade over some Legends, Timer Balls, and Repeat Balls. For the Elite Four and so I don't have to do the stupid One Island Mission. Reason being; I don't want to release the dog yet. I have plans on Soft Resetting for a shiny one. But the problem is, it's gonna take a while. Oh, well.
                                  Thanks again, everyone, and good luck to all!

                                    Congrats to everyone on their new shinies. Especially you, MM, you really deserve your Dialga after losing it! ^_^

                                    I don't have Platinum yet, but I look forward to soft resetting for Piplup when I get mine. Good luck to everyone else soft resetting!

                                      Jeez louise.....

                                      Did things catch on fire or what....?

                                      Congratulations everyone.. '

                                      I wish I had good news to speak of for myself, but I don't... except I do have Platinum, and I'm standing right in the middle of the Battle Frontier.

                                      My next objective is to trade over the rest of my shiny fighters, so I have to catch about 34 junk Pokemon... that's a lot of catching.

                                      Another thing that sucks is that my Staraptor, Snorlax, and others that use Return will have to become loyal all over again. That's fine; I plan to use them in the Frontier facilities.

                                      But first....

                                      I want to be one of the first to get a US Platinum shiny!! I already have one in mind. It'll be tough though, for 2 reasons:

                                      1. It's a hard Pokemon to chain.

                                      2. The grass looks different.

                                      Yeah, it looks different. They redid the sprites. I'm not sure if it's easier to tell them apart or not...

                                      I guess I'll find out soon enough!

                                      As far as Magikarp goes.... I'll resume hatching on Diamond soon.
                                      I hatched 2,600 before I stopped on Platinum Day.

                                        Out of the blue bad luck, I guess: What are the chances of your game randomly freezing for no reason, having to restart from the last save, and losing 6 Eggs that might have held a Shiny... ^^; I'm hoping that this isn't the case here, but knowing me...

                                            Congrats to new shinies everyone.

                                            I finished Platinum yesterday and I got my first Pokeradar shiny:



                                            I didn't have much trouble getting to 40, I was used to chaining in Platinum, as I have the Japanese Version. I did get a chain to 30 yesterday evening, but a Bidoof broke it.

                                            Other than that, no new shinies from me. Still hunting on One Island, with no shiny in sight. I'm hoping that something appears before the end of this month, or at least the end of April.
