I'm not going to hunt Gible. Right now I am playing through Platinum, I want to go get PokeRadar because I want to be able to have some good Pokemon for trade in B/W.

I also want to try and get the Regigigas that lets me get the three Regis. Hopefully there are still people with it because I want to SR for them.

    Gible is a bad choice for hunting IMO... unless you're going to keep it Gible or Gabite. Here's comparison between normal and shiny Garchomp.

    It wasn't a choice, it was from a random generator. Click where I said "Gible"

      You can get Deoxys in FireRed, LeafGreen, or Emerald (I'd suggest Emerald because you can use teleport codes). Apparantly you can use your emulator to find it...

      Awesome August
      Spoiler:
      What a cheesy name again

      You must find one of these shinies (or an evolutionary form of it), you do not need to find all, just one! If you are participating in a monthly challenge, then it ends before you get the shiny, you do not get a prize for it.

      1st Generation: Abra
      2nd Generation: Phanpy
      3rd Generation: Wailmer
      4th Generation: Cherubi
      5th Generation: Tynamo

      I've given you a warning before about making short pointless posts, now you get a strike. The game was in the title of the video, and this question is more suited for visitor message.

      Your strike will expire Monday August 15th, 2011.

      No, Emerald is a horrible game. The RNG is messed up, it is nearly impossible to get a shiny through SRing. Just Google "Pokemon Emerald Broken RNG" and you'll find hundreds of sources and explanations.

      Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green are the best, you can just use a code to get the tickets or use an emulator if you wish.

      On another not, I am now in Goldenrod City and am SRing for a Shiny Abra again. o3o

      They're good shinies but I won't ever find uses for them... (Mewtwo > Alakazam) Are those pokemon randomly generated as well?

      I'm now going to reveal what method of shiny hunting I'm using for my secret hunt.

        Gible is one of my favorite Pokémon, so I'm definitely participating in this weeks contest. Right now I'm spending a lot of time hatching Larvitars, which has a very high step count. So far I've hatched 48. I gave up on Sneasel after hatching 62 eggs. I hatched 50 Rotoms after that. I got what I wanted in IVs with Rotom early on, but I decided to keep going until I reached 50. Besides that, the Litwick count is now up to 1,710. I won't have much time for Awesome August.

        Ugh. Hunting shinies is not my thing. I only caught 1 shiny in my life and it was a Drowzee on my HeartGold which I lost.

          I'm sorry to hear about the lost Drowzee, JalordaSerpent7.

          I finished hatching Larvitars once I got what I wanted in IVs, which means that I'm done hatching for my competitive team. I hatched 61 eggs. So far I've hatched 17 Gibles for this weeks contest. I've been focused on hatching Litwicks lately, a hunt that has reached 1,801 eggs. I've hatched almost 3,000 eggs overall using the Masuda Method without getting a shiny.

          That sucks... I hope you get it soon! (hope I do too for my secret hunt... don't want to hatch 2000 more eggs like I did trying to get Scyther)

          I've reached 150 eggs for my secret hunt, and I'm still going strong. Battling with friends did hinder my progress a bit though :x (and I lost 7 out of 7 battles)

          Bummer 2C4M, how could you lose 7 outta 7 though?
          And you MMers are insane, it must be so frustrating hatching egg after egg after egg. How do you psych yourself up for that?

          The thing that I like most about MMing is that you don't really have to pay much attention most of the time. You can watch TV or go online without really needing to look away that much.

          With SRing or REing you have to look away much more often (especially me since I like playing with the sound off.)

          I joined some sort of challenge where you have to get every fully evolved Unova Pokemon in the Hall of Fame. So, I'll be doing that. Hopefully I'll find a shiny through training. :3

            ^that's actually given me a pretty good idea for a contest!

            the idea being a shiny contest with masuda method - hatch each pokemon in ascending order (bulbasaur, then charmander, then squirtle, then caterpie and so on) until you hatch out a shiny. obviously this only applies to those that can breed, so no legendaries or other genderless pokemon. if you go past the final pokemon, you can start again from bulbasaur and keep going. :D

              That is possibly, the cruelest idea ive ever read. Thatd take so long as well, would be pretty interesting though. Mainly cause i like reading other peoples torment while doing challenges and this 'contest' seems a bit more challenge like.. hehe...


              18000. :O Oh god may the clubs luck be with you! Weber.

              No. I'd have to then pull out every single pokemon from my box and deposit them every egg hatched, and you also have to WAIT for it to hatch. The amount of attention needed is just ridiculous compared to normal masuda method. It's certainly a nice idea though, but actually executing that idea is terrible.

              P.S. - G.G. 666th post... I was saving it for my Dark type fan club and it's still not approved yet...

                I almost always watch TV or listen to music or podcasts when I MM.

                Ffff! So I was doing a solo playthrough of Platinum for Bidoof and I was just getting the TM for Rock Tomb in Ravaged Path and all of a sudden a shiny Zubat comes up!

                I didn't even react at first because I normally do train shiny Pokemon on playthroughs but then I realized this wasn't my Pokemon (and my Pokemon wasn't shiny) so I quickly closed the DS. I didn't even know it was a Zubat until I opened it up to record. xD;

                It's Hasty nature, which is actually pretty good since it raises Speed. I don't know if I will keep it as a Golbat or evolve it to Crobat, since I already have a Crobat shiny. odfjkoskdfosk EXCITED <3

                Here's the video:


                Also..the Pokemon of the week is: Zoroa!

                Bump.

                My secret hunt is not going too well... Will give up if I can't get it before the school starts. I hope I do get it though!

                Congrats on all the recent shinies everyone!

                I haven't hunted anything in a while, I've been really busy getting prepared for going back to school next week, finally getting my room all to myself and NOT sharing with my brother, and playing Mystery Dungeon Sky (just finished today).
                I think I'm at something like 2400 for Abra, 230 for Grimer and I have no idea about Venipede, I'll check later.

                  Congrats on the shiny Zubat, Landorus!

                  I took some time off from playing White this week. So far I've hatched 1,912 Litwicks. I'll be skipping this weeks contest since I hatched Zoruas not that long ago.
