    That sounds like a fun contest to have each week. I suppose I'll alternate between Litwick and Abra, with more time spent on Litwick.

      Is it a random Pokemon each week, or are we having something different weekly?

      Anyways, my Abra hunt will start now!

        Abra!
        Gah, I just got shiny Abra! Go figure, the contest is the Pokemon I just got last week, "lol." I might do next week's, though.

        Lucky you, Lando and Fireworks! You guys were hunting that anyway, haha.

          im dual soft resetting now for charmander, got a back lit gba sp and its really nice, makes my old one look like a trubbish now... (not that there is anything wrong with trubbish)

          no luck but it makes doing alot of SR's easy, thought i would update you all on that.

          and darn for the pokemon of the week being abra, if i didnt already have one i would try for it.

            I quite like that idea actually, I'll participate and try and hatch it out via masuda method on black. I'll put aside the shiny totodile soft resetting for a bit.

              Yes it is. We always have multiple contests running.

              Edit: I just hit the 2000 mark for Abra (technically the 2097 mark o3o)

                Congrats on the shiny Raticate, 2Cool4Mewtwo! It was about time someone found a shiny on the random route contest.

                My Litwick hunt has hit 1,700 eggs, and I've hatched 10 Abras so far for the new contest. I plan on spending some time breeding for IVs for Sneasel this week. Back in gen 2 I hatched a shiny Sneasel using the shiny Ditto trick. I also hatched shinies of Larvitar, Pichu, and Cleffa. I can't remember who else. They of course don't count for the club. The odds were 1 in 64, if I remember correctly, when you bred using a shiny. For those that don't know, if you traded the shiny Gyarados that you caught in gen 2 to Yellow for a Ditto, the Ditto would become a shiny. If you traded Gyarados back and it would still be a shiny.

                    Congratulations 2Cool4Mewtwo!!! I'm sure that you're beyond happy by now. :D

                    I have decided to skip the Abra challenge and concentrate solely on the random route challenge. Hopefully it doesn't take 25,000 encounters! :0 I'm also sort of experimenting with the Pokeradar (Do those types of shines count btw?).

                      That's not bad at all, Nato. If you keep that up, you could be getting 6 or 7 shinies per month!! Whatever you're hunting, keep at it!

                      I'm not sure whether or not it counts for the contest, but it does count for the ShinyDex. You get to count one shiny per chain, which really isn't different from normal rules, unless you're chaining something like Eevee or Oddish (I don't even know if Eevee's chainable, "lol"). You'll only be able to count one evolutionary line unless you break the chain and start over again, but you're free to count the first one!

                      PokeRadar shinies do not count for contests, this is because for some people PokeRadar is extremely easy and they could abuse to win every contest.

                      I am one of those people, nearly every chain I do results in a shiny because I am very cautious about the patch I go in to. (Which is why I don't count them in my signature)

                          Congrats on the shiny Sneasel!

                          Before you post a picture, you need to upload it to an image-hosting site, like PhotoBucket or ImageShack. Then, click on the little mountain above the post box, and copy/paste the URL of the image there.

                          Congratulations to Shiny Charizard on the shiny Sneasel!

                          Right now I just passed the 4000 mark with Abra, hurrah! o3o Abra thinks it's all clever. In fact, it's laughing at me. But little does it know I will find its hiding space eventually.

                          Also, I am making new signatures. o3o
