    I was starting to go crazy seeing somebody get a shiny almost everyday while I still didn't get mine!
    But last night I finally got a shiny in Village Bridge after hunting there since March 15th, it's my first Pokemon Black shiny and my first shiny in a while!

    Spoiler:


    I wanted a shiny Zangoose when I first started, but a shiny Seviper is just as good! I've always wanted a shiny Seviper as much as a Zangoose since its colors are AWESOME!

    Video of the capture of the shiny Seviper is here.

    Now I need to figure out what to hunt for next, there's just so many shinies I want.

        Hey, guys! Sorry, I haven't been as active as I'd like...
        Anyway, I recently obtained my 3rd shiny in White: Shiny Gligar

        I took a break from hunting a shiny Karrablast after around 200 eggs and started hatching Pokemon to trade on GTS Negotiations. On my 3rd Gligar egg, I hatched my shiny.
        It has a Jolly nature, too! It's a Gliscor now and I'm EV training it.

        So, good luck with your hunts, guys! :D

        Nice job with the disco snake! They are awesome! I still get jumpy when I see one... :D

        My nephew wants to battle me with his noober team so I'm taking a break from hunting to clone and import my competitive team so I can proceed to wipe the floor with him. Cloning via save file backup requires catching tons of useless Pokémon to sacrifice, so I'm doing that right now. I hope a shiny DOESN'T show up, because it'd be on a flash reader and that doesn't feel right. It'd also be a golden Magikarp, and Red Gyaradoses are a dime a dozen anyway. I already have high IV RGs with Adamant and Jolly natures as is.

        77 Tepigs since last count.

          By the way, I love your banner. The shiny mini-icons look amazing, and I love your collection. Nice job!

          Congrats! You got a shiny on your 3rd egg!? Wow, talk about luck! The SHC is just overflowing with it right now, "lol." I sure would like a sip...

          Still playing through Black here, doing tons of REs to raise my team. Every time I see a new Pokemon, I think, "Wow, that's awesome! I would love to have a shiny of that!" Nearly 649 targets now? Us shiny hunters sure are going to be busy with that Dex, "lol."

          Thanks for all the good luck, everyone. The SHC is doing pretty well in that department! :D

            Hi everyone, how are you doing?
            Me here a little busy and using my free time to train and hunt.

            Congratulations to Evil Sonic for Seviper and Anti Zero for Gligar

            About the shiny legendaries in black and white I mean reshiram zekrom and victini, not all.

            I see Fufu went through a lot on april 4, were you able to find shiny gible?

            Hope everything is ok, and thanks.

            My shiny news: Well, not much, only training via the pokeradar and on the first patch found a female shiny camerupt with magma armor near stark mountain in diamond, it was just a rare patch, not a shiny patch.
            In other news, still SRing for some targets, and maybe will try to breed for a nosepass. I don't know if chaining is accepted in april fools.
            By the way, here are the pics I promised last time:
            Shiny eevee.jpgShiny porygon.jpg

            I think that's all for now, good luck and happy hunting.

                Still Masuda Methoding for Petilil. Got an Everstone on the Modest mom since it apparently works now. XD More than 75% of the eggs I'm hatching are Modest. I'm up to 175 eggs and no luck so far. :/ I love Petilil, but I'm thinking of switching to DW Vulpix. I'll probably stick it out until 300 or so and then switch to keep things fresh.

                  Hi guys and girls I'm back with some updates, I put my MM charmander in HG on hold, yesterday I started two new hunts. The first one I'm SR on my leaf green for a charmander, I did 300 SR on that one, I also RE on my HG on route 29 got 500 RE on that one, I hope to get alot more today. I was actually also hatching for a woobat, I had already around 30 eggs but I stopped because I'm probably first going to playthrough the game and transfer my japanees ditto from HG, so I can MM for woobat because the odds in Black&White are much better. So that rounds up my update hoping for something to shiny before the end of the week

                    Nothing new since my last post. I'm still playing through Black, hoping for a random shiny along the way. I absolutely love the new Pokemon, and now I have plenty of targets.

                    Congrats on the Camerupt! You act like it's not a big deal, but you got a shiny! "lol" I guess they become less exciting when you're chaining.

                    Chained shinies count for the Dex, although you only get one per chain. You still get all its evolutions, though.

                    The April challenges are the 5 specific April targets - one from each generation - and the shiny circuit. The circuit technically is carrying over from March, since no one has won yet. Heck, no one's officially completed a leg! The competition is still open, and anyone can win! Think about joining, if you're not busy with another hunt/game!

                    Welcome to the club! We're glad to have a new shiny hunter! Congrats on those three shinies, especially the Magneton.

                      Been working on my Subway team at the minute. I have a perfect IV blissey with bold nature and all the other IV are high.

                      Not sure who I am going to be using. My old team of Gengar, Metagross and Blissey doesn't seem to be working so I am looking into some different pokemon to use. So I am doing a lot of breeding of pokemon for good IV/nature so I may just bump into a shiny as I am using Japanese Dittos to increase the chance. Would love a full shiny wifi team.

                      I am thinking about trying to get a full set of the shiny pokemon that people random create. Will maybe when I have some time off work and more time for hunting and when some pokemon I like come into it.

                      SRing for Virizion shiny on White though. Virizion looks awesome as a shiny.

                        Hey guys :]

                        So far, I haven't gotten another shiny yet. I put some of my hunts on hold so that I can hunt for shiny Venonat and shiny Charmander. I'm at 150 eggs for each. I'm especially looking forward to hatching the Charmander, because I'm breeding the egg move Dragon Dance onto it. If I'm lucky and get a good nature, I'm going to use it for battles. Good luck again to everyone xD

                          So I decide to put my MM Bulbasaur hunt on hold in Black. And started on a Munna MM hunt on White, but only got to 120 eggs so far. So tonight i decided to start MM for a shiny riolu on Platinum and I'm happy to say that after only 27 eggs, I now have four shinies!! Im so happy about my shiny Riolu!! Since its one of my favorite pokemon!! :D

                            Hey everybody! It says all you have to do to join is post, so I'm joining!

                            Many of you may know me from SPPf, and I'm ShinyDoug there too. Send me a VM/PM if you're a shiny hunter that I may already know. Such as G Money and Fufu! And Landorus, it's good to see you around somewhere too!

                            So I'm currently hunting in Pinwheel Forest. I'm at 1500 RE's, and I'm not expecting a quick hunt, though one would be nice. A lot of hunters on Serebii seem to be getting quick shinies lately. I'm dual REing on the inside of the Forest on Black and White.

                            Congrats on all the recent shinies! I've just started reading the posts.

                            I have 2 1/8192 shinies, as all the rest are chained, though some at early patches, evem Chain 1. My favorite shiny I own is easily Typhlosion. He appeared in less than 3000 starters! I may restart HG again and try for another shiny starter. If you want to know any more than that about my shinies, check the card I made in my sig.

                              FINALLY!!!!

                              That's right guys, I've finally gotten a new shiny! I was getting a little tired of REing for Swablu and Torkoal on Ruby and Sapphire, so I decided to take a little break by resuming an old hunt of mine; Spheal in Shoal Cave. I had already done 4,010 encounters from a previous stint, so I decided I would just raise my total to 4,250 encounters. Then I would switch back to REing for Torkoal.

                              Little did I know that I would never quite reach that milestone.

                              I can't believe that I'm actually saying this, but something in me truly felt that I would get a shiny. I don't know how to explain it, but earlier today, when I was initially considering resuming my Spheal hunt, I thought to myself "Watch this be the time when I time that I actually get a shiny. When I'm not even hunting for a main target." I wouldn't call myself psychic because I NEVER have feelings like this, but MAN, let's just say that my intuition was certainly on point today!

                              Truth be told, I wasn't even able to tell that that the Pokemon was shiny until right before I saw the stars. As it was scrolling across the screen, it looked absolutely normal. However, when it stopped scrolling and came out of the shadow, the difference was a bit more noticeable. I was playing on my silver GBA SP (the one with the horrible backlight), so I truly had to wait for the stars to confirm my suspicion.

                              It felt like the longest wait of my life.

                              So, without further ado, allow me to introduce you to my 69th shiny, my 67th traditional shiny, and perhaps, (considering its prevalence as a common "random" shiny") one of the most overdue shinies in my career:

                              Why am I just now getting this shiny?

                              I had to take photos at an angle because the flash of my camera was surprisingly cumbersome. More pics!



                              I also made a video of the capture of this shiny. It's uploading right now. I'm so, so, happy with this shiny! And I'm glad that I finally got it; I feel justified in saying finally because I've seen 18,961 Pokemon since my last shiny...and considering the amount of luck that's been floating around lately, I'm overjoyed that I finally got the chance to bring some shiny news.

                              I do plan on evolving this shiny Golbat, just not immediately. I still have a day left of Spring Break, and I plan to spend a good deal of it shiny hunting. I have some other irl things I need to finish up really quickly, but otherwise, there really isn't anything stopping me from substantially raising my totals for some other targets between now and Sunday evening.

                              Hmmmm, what else do I want to say...? Oh yeah, my emotional reaction to this shiny Golbat was this: surprising disbelief -> ecstasy at finding a shiny -> mild disappointment at it not being Swablu/Torkoal -> ecstasy again because I actually like shiny Crobat and have wanted one for a while. I wouldn't call Crobat a dream shiny, but seriously, it seems like everyone and their mothers but me has a shiny Zubat. I used to refer to it as the most common shiny ever (other than the Red Gyarados, of course). But yeah, I am incredibly happy that I finally have a shiny Golbat of my own. I love it!

                              It has a Bashful nature, and its IVs are quite mediocre. Quite "shiny-esque", if I use a term coined by the French shiny hunting community.

                              So yeah, thanks for reading this unnecessarily long post! Good luck to everyone else that shiny hunting! And good luck to me as well because I seriously want something between Swablu, Torkoal, Gible, and Tepig to just shine for me already. x_X

                              My current hunt is shiny DW vulpix, but haven't started yet, because I didn't get the regular female DW vulpix... Although I did get a male Vulpix (DW)
                              So far, I got those shinies:
                              -TOTALLY RANDOM Zubat, jap. HG
                              -TOTALLY RANDOM Foongus, jap. W
                              -MASUDA METHOD Cyndaquil, eur. SS, 1-03-11
                              Not that much, but still... I started hunting 1st of March or something. And I hope to get another soon!

                                Hey guys, I think I made a new discovery - your Pokedex now records your shinies!! I don't know if anyone found this already, but when you go into the Pokedex on B/W and scroll over to "Forms," it shows how many different types of that Pokemon you've seen (Frillish and Basculin would have two, for instance), but it also lists how many shinies you've seen of that Pokemon. I think that's pretty awesome that even the Pokedex lists shinies now.

                                Of course, each entry in my Dex is cursed with a "SHINY: 0" next to it. :/


                                What do you guys think about dual REing? It theoretically halves the amount of time (and thus rarity) of shiny hunting, but it's still 1/8192, and it's technically still the classic way. I'm still on the fence, and I'm willing to keep an open mind and hear both sides and reasons to like/dislike dual REing.


                                This is a little bit off topic, but remember how I was talking about how I couldn't connect to WiFi to get a normal Victini? Yesterday, I walked down three blocks trying the different neighbors's WiFis, and none of them worked. At the end of the third block I tried one while hiding under a tree, and I finally found one I could get into, "lol." So now I happily have my Victini, and hopefully this means I'll be able to get SRable/breedable event legends in the future!

                                I think I finally have a rival for longest posts, but you're still a distant second in number of targets!

                                Welcome to the SHC! Those are three pretty cool shinies you have! I'd love to get a shiny Cyndaquil some day.


                                Good luck to everyone on their hunts! Let's hope that everyone can get at least one shiny this April. *coughincludingG-Moneycough*

                                Welcome to all the new members (Pokewalker, Poketrainer87, and ShinyDoug) and congrats to It's Just Fufu on his shiny Golbat, Poketrainer87 on their Shiny Riolu, AntiZero on his Gligar, EvilSonic on Seviper, and anyone else I may have missed. Good luck on all current hunts!

                                Right now I am playing through Black. I am debating on dual-hatching for a Shiny Togepi, or just waiting until I can dual SR for Landorus. My spring break starts the 16th.

                                I've actually known that for awhile. :x While dual REing is just dual REing. I see no logical reason to be against it.

                                  No shiny news for now.

                                  Congrats on new shinies.

                                  About double REing, for me is the same as normal REing, only that you have to time properly when playing two games at a same time. I think it halves the time of a hunt, but for the cost of that you have both hands busy.
                                  By the way, it's good to hear that you are able to download events now .

                                  Well, see you all and happy hunting.

                                    Hello again, everyone. I really would like to thank all of you that congratulated me on my shiny Golbat. I know it's not the best shiny, but like I said before, it has always been a shiny that I've coveted, and given the amount of time I've been hunting, I've always wondered why I haven't had one yet...maybe it's kind of silly, but part of me feels like I've really joined the club of "veteran" shiny hunters, now that I have a shiny Golbat. :p

                                    So. It's about mid-April now, meaning the school year is winding down...which in turn means that finals and AP exams are coming up. In the past, I never really had to study for such exams, but seeing as how this is my junior year of high school, I've really got to buckle down and make sure I do my best so that I can give myself the best shot at getting into a decent college. With that being said, I'm going to try my best at putting a serious halt to shiny hunting. I'm not making any promises, but from now until late May, I don't see myself doing any appreciable shiny hunting. I'll still do Tepig soft resets every now and then, but I don't expect to spend 5+ hours triple hunting every day like I have been during this absolutely wonderful Spring Break, lol. But yeah, school along with basketball (I play during the spring and summer, too) will definitely keep me busy.

                                    Despite my self-imposed hiatus from hunting, I'll still check the club regularly. Most likely. It's hard to stay completely away from shiny hunting. :D

                                    So with that, I'll just leave you all with a final update on my main targets.

                                    13,600 encounters


                                    1079 soft resests


                                    2,252 encounters and 311 eggs


                                    5,002 encounters


                                    10,414 encounters


                                    4,600 soft resets

                                    So as you can see, I have quite a few hunts going on...but I love it!

                                    Good luck to all, and congratulations to all the new shinies as well.

                                      That's a lot of hunts, Fufu. O.o

                                      Good luck on Terrakion, Apex, and welcome!

                                      I have decided my new target. It will be Hoppip. I am going to MM for it on my White o3o

                                      I have a Female Hoppip from the DW that I am using for Hoppip.

                                      @Fufu: I don't have a shiny Zubat relative.

                                      To try and relieve my complete lack of shinies since GenV, I went and chained some Bronzors in Pearl. I've collected 2 so far and won't stop until I have 6 with Levitate, so I have a decent shot at a competitive one.

                                      My Tepig count is at 2357 but is on hold until my DS is free. I could SR on my Phat, but I don't like lugging that around. I'll sneak in some Kyogre SRs to fill that time instead. Kyogre's count is at 8717.

                                        I read somewhere that the B/W trainer card records the number of wild battles, and it's true! This is going to be extremely useful in RE shiny hunts, since I can finally track my progress and be able to post updates like everyone else.

                                        I've finished the main story in Black (which was awesome), so now I can return to shiny hunting proper. I ended up with 1789 REs throughout the course of the game, which was interesting to find out. I guess about 1 in 5 people see a shiny in the course of a regular play through the game?

                                        I've started hunting for a shiny Litwick, which seems to be the signature shiny of the 5th generation. Shiny Chadelure looks really cool, so I'm pretty excited about this hunt. I'm at 476 encounters now, and I'll be able to know exactly when I'm reaching the average now because of the stat tracker. Judging by the average time for a shiny, I should be able to get one in 17 days at this rate, but it never works out for me like that. :/

                                        Thanks to everyone on their input on dual REing. I think I'm for it, mostly because it doesn't really increase your rate of getting a shiny mathematically. It saves time, but it's still the "classic" method.

                                        Welcome! You have a very nice friend, "lol." What are you going to evolve Eevee into? You have 8 very nice shiny options!

                                        You know, I had actually typed that out for my earlier post, but I ended up erasing it, "lol." That's the exact thing I thought when I saw you got a shiny Golbat! It's like a signature of being a long-time hunter. It's hard to believe that MetalMario has 40+ shinies without a shiny Golbat, "lol."

                                        Those are some nice targets, and I hope you end up getting all of them soon. Finals aren't really fun, but personally, I'd still shiny hunt until the night before.
