Congrats to PokeTrainer87 on the Sewaddle! I am updating the first post now.

I was bored, so I re-colored a Gardevoir and a Wobbuffet DW picture to be shiny. If you want to use it you can, you don't have to give me credit. I HATE CREDIT.

    hi everyone

    congrats to poketrainer87 for his new shiny.

    my shiny news: well, not much to say, got a shiny weezing only by luck (pokeradar of course), the other three I found all suffered a drastic destiny, if your guess was Explosion then you're right. But its ok, I just wanted to catch one, and maybe see the explosion animation of a shiny one. lol, I enjoyed it a little.
    I was just training using the pokeradar, and when I noticed, I had already 40, so I gave it a try; and for the first one to appear was an eternity.

    Hatching section: started hatching nosepass eggs; also I'll let you all know it's name when it hatches.

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

    PD: updated my shiny album with some older and newer pics I took with my camera.

    So I've gotten myself a shiny Cresselia on my Pearl version, after 8,179 SR's. Video:

      ^Congrats on Cresselia! That's a hard shiny to get!

      UPDATE: Hatched 150 Snivys without a shine. I boxed a whopping 300 Snivys yesterday and am about to hatch. I can't wait for my shiny!

      Wish me luck! As per usual, Happy Hunting!

      Congrats, pokewalker! It's Modest too, that's a nice little bonus if you plan to use it seriously.

      Thinking of going back to Roggenrola hatching once I have the 7th badge. I just don't have enough time to play a decent amount right now. T_T

            Congrats on the Sewaddle, Weezing and Cresselia guys! Major props for Cresselia since that's quite a hard shiny to get. It's definitely a shiny to be proud for!

            Landorus, I'm loving the shiny colored pokemon you're making. They all look perfect. <3 My favorites are the Gardevoir and the Milotic. :D Awesome job, I'll probably snag a few.

            My shiny news: Nothing so far. Over 500 Venonat eggs and nothing. I took a break from hunting though and haven't played my DS in almost a week. I'll probably hop back into hunting but probably try a different pokemon for now. I did try the Dream World and I brought a Lickitung over with Cloud Nine, I'll probably try breeding that for a bit. In Platinum I was breeding for Bagon still but I lost track of my eggs. ; No shiny yet either.

            Well, Happy Hunting guys and good luck!

                Congratulations on that Snivy, Doug! This has inspired me to keep going with Roggenrola, lol.

                Although be warned that the EXP share also passes on EVs iirc so your EV training might mess up if you don't start right now.

                  I've dedicated a lot of time to shiny hunting lately, and my drought has continued. It's creeping up towards the two month mark, and I'm starting to get really frustrated. I've been focusing solely upon Drifloon and Mudkip, so I can't give up exact numbers of encounters, but I can tell you how much time I was hunting. Here's how I spent my past week:

                  Monday: 8 hours shiny hunting
                  Tuesday: 7 hours shiny hunting
                  Wednesday: 8 hours shiny hunting
                  Thursday: 8 hours shiny hunting
                  Friday: 4 hours shiny hunting
                  Saturday: 8 hours shiny hunting
                  Sunday: 6 hours shiny hunting
                  Today: 6 hours so far

                  I was hoping that an increase in hunting time would help yield a shiny, but no. I'm starting to get mad about this, "lol." It doesn't matter how much you hunt; you're still not going to get a shiny anyways, "lol." Being 0-for-100 gives you the same average as being 0-for-100000. :D

                  --
                  darumaka
                  darmantian

                  there are many different shinies that I'm searching for at the moment, I'll post when I know what I'll search for first.
                  Welcome to the club, R.K 9! We're glad to have you join!

                  Don't hate on your shiny Nidoqueen! A shiny is a shiny, and all shinies are cool! I'd rather have the ugliest shiny than no shiny at all!

                  I was just training using the pokeradar, and when I noticed, I had already 40, so I gave it a try; and for the first one to appear was an eternity.
                  Congratulations! Once again, it's Chr. Draco calling THREE new shiny sightings "not much to say." :D

                  I bet it was pretty awesome to see shiny Weezing use Explosion. What a burst of color! A shiny exploding rainbow of doom must be one sight to see, "lol."

                  Congratulations! Cresselia has one of the coolest color schemes of any shiny, if not the coolest. I love shiny Cresselia! Seeing that beautiful shiny makes me want to hunt it now; maybe I'll start in Pearl after getting shiny Palkia.

I'm not sure if you're trying to get certain moves/abilities on your Cottonee, but if not, I think it would be a lot faster if you hunted in the Pinwheel Forest. Wild Encounters take less time than egg hatching, although there's always the chance that you could get a shiny other than the one for which you're looking. Still, refer to the 22nd axiom of shiny hunting:

                  Axiom 22:

                  Whenever hunting for a shiny that can be found both individually and with other Pokemon, always search in the area also containing other Pokemon. This results in the possibility of unintentionally obtaining a shiny of a different Pokemon on the route. In this scenario, you can still obtain your desired shiny without risk of duplication by simply searching in the area without any other Pokemon.

                  This is vastly superior to the alternative, a case in which you obtain the desired shiny by searching for it individually, and later decide you want a Pokemon from the route where both are found. During that hunt, you may inadvertantly acquire a duplicate of the shiny you already had found when searching for it indiviually, producing a net loss of time and less shiny diversity.
                  It's a little wordy, but it basically means that if you can find a Pokemon in the wild, you should search there before hatching for it, unless you want egg moves or something. You don't want to spend months hatching for a shiny Cottonee only to run into a shiny one in the wild months later, as you would've wasted a ton of time getting a shiny that's essentially worthless because you would've gotten one later anyways.

                  I'm actually applying Axiom 22 to my Litwick hunt. On the first few floors of the tower only Litwick is found, but on the top couple of floors reside both Litwick and Elgyem. I'm not really looking for a shiny Elgyem - I want a shiny Litwick because I think it looks awesome and is one of my favorite shinies, when I could really care less about Elgyem. Still, I'm hunting on the top floor because of Axiom 22. If I hunted on the bottom floor and got Litwick, I could then never hunt for Elgyem without risking getting another shiny Litwick, which I had already exclusively hunted before. I would either have to risk another Litwick or hatch for Elgyem, which takes much longer than just wild encounters. By searching on the top floor, I still have a chance of getting Litwick, which is the same result as the other situation, but just with different possibilities. It's also possible that I could get a shiny Elgyem, and then I could hunt on the bottom floor for Litwick without risk of a duplicate. Then I'd have both shinies without any wasted time, and that's the best case scenario.

                  Of course, that's assuming you're a shiny hunter. If you just want Litwick and that's the only shiny you care about getting, by all means hunt in a place where only Litwick is found, since all the Elgyem encounters would be wasting your time. But if you're like me and have the impossible goal of eventually getting every shiny, you'll want to follow the manual.


                  Landorus, those are really awesome pictures! I love them. It's really cool that on Gardevoir, Wobbuffet, Oddish, and Darumaka, highlighting the picture will show the non-shiny version. It doesn't work on some computers, though; I think it depends on how your computer highlights text. If the highlighted text is blue, it should work, but white highlights don't seem to reveal the non-shiny version.

                  EDIT: ShinyDoug ninja'd me! :O

                  Congrats on the Snivy!! It looks really cool! It seems like that hunt didn't take too long, so that makes it all the better! You're really lucky!

                    Congrats, ShinyDoug on Snivy! It looks so great blue, and I'm sure she'll make a great team member. Your shiny has pushed me to continue hunting myself. After days of long hours of hatching and hatching it becomes so tedious but is worth it in the end!

I've been focusing solely upon Drifloon and Mudkip, so I can't give up exact numbers of encounters, but I can tell you how much time I was hunting. Here's how I spent my past week:

                    Monday: 8 hours shiny hunting
                    Tuesday: 7 hours shiny hunting
                    Wednesday: 8 hours shiny hunting
                    Thursday: 8 hours shiny hunting
                    Friday: 4 hours shiny hunting
                    Saturday: 8 hours shiny hunting
                    Sunday: 6 hours shiny hunting
                    Today: 6 hours so far
                    Don't give up! That's a lot of shiny hunting but why give up when you've already done so much? I feel your pain though, I haven't had a shiny in a while and after days of hatching eggs for hours I took a break away from it. But, now I'm all ready to go again, so just keep going. Hopefully you'll get one soon!

                    Also good luck on Litwick! It's a cute little pokemon and a nice shiny. Hopefully you'll see some sparkles soon. I will also have to keep Axiom 22 in mind when hunting for something catchable next time.


                    Starting to random encounter in White now since I need another small break from egg hatching in Black. I just get side tracked way too easy and I kinda like the thought of something random. I have yet to beat the elite four on white so I'm just running around on Route 7.

                      The main reason for my posting is that I recolored the whole Snivy evo line's DW Art. I used their sprite colorings:





                      I'm considering MMing Tepig now. Shiny Emboar is Ganon lol. However, I still have 2 1/2 boxes left. Doubt there's anything there, but I don't care. It's worth a shot. I think. Especially since in 50 eggs Profile of SPPf got 2 shinies.

                      Thanks for all of the congrats I've been getting!

                      Happy Hunting! *Gives Members Luck*

                        Today: 6 hours so far

                        I was hoping that an increase in hunting time would help yield a shiny, but no. I'm starting to get mad about this, "lol." It doesn't matter how much you hunt; you're still not going to get a shiny anyways, "lol." Being 0-for-100 gives you the same average as being 0-for-100000. :D



                        Welcome to the club, R.K 9! We're glad to have you join!



                        Welcome! We don't count shinies from Pokesav, but you're free to hunt using the regular games!

                        Don't hate on your shiny Nidoqueen! A shiny is a shiny, and all shinies are cool! I'd rather have the ugliest shiny than no shiny at all!



                        Congratulations! That's awesome! It's about time we end our collective drought!



                        Congratulations! Once again, it's Chr. Draco calling THREE new shiny sightings "not much to say." :D

                        I bet it was pretty awesome to see shiny Weezing use Explosion. What a burst of color! A shiny exploding rainbow of doom must be one sight to see, "lol."



                        Congratulations! Cresselia has one of the coolest color schemes of any shiny, if not the coolest. I love shiny Cresselia! Seeing that beautiful shiny makes me want to hunt it now; maybe I'll start in Pearl after getting shiny Palkia.

                        3000th SR on shiny rayquaza and no luck so far... but I believe I can get it soon

                        Since I still haven't used my master ball on my SS, I think this will be the perfect time to use it :D

                        On a small side note, I think I'll switch over to playing BW after I get this shiny. pokedex is almost complete on my SS: 490 caught, only 3 that I haven't caught are rayquaza, shaymin, and magikarp (the latter I'm going to get it last on purpose)

                            Ok, so while SRing for a shiny starter on Soul Silver, I started up Heart Gold to play through the story again.
                            On the first route of the game on my way to Cherrygrove City, I ran into a shiny Hoothoot.
                            Unfortunately, this was before I had access to Pokeballs. >_< So no shiny Hoothoot for me.
                            I guess you can image how angry I was.

                            But, yeah, other than that, I think I might give up on the SRing for a shiny starter, I don't really like any of the shiny Johto starters, anyway. But I'll SR for the other soft resettable ones, like Lugia, Ho-Oh, etc.
                            So good luck on your hunts, everyone!

                            -RULE UPDATE-
                            For further reference, just to make some members happy, all discussion of the new GTS glitch [Keldeo, Genesect, and Meloetta] will now be considered discussion cheats and will get you an automatic strike as the Pokemon you get from it are in fact not legit.

                              I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature

                              Please stop changing your hunts every few hours and posting about it. If you change your hunt so much and you have nothing else to say, please just edit your last post. Just..add more to your posts please, when all you're doing is posting about changing your goal.

                              Good luck on all your hunts.

                              Oh, and I did a recolor again! I love Jirachi! One of my favorite Pokemon.
