    I am still hunting for a shiny mareep in Crystal I lost count at 5,672 encounters.

    I lost my shiny Emerald pokes due to a bad save battery.

      Gee, I reckoned it was about time to catch up with welcome's and congratulations that I've yet to offer. Guess this means a G-Money sized post is coming...

      Hiatus is over, hopefully. I'm gonna try and approach shiny hunting a totally different way for now. I have fun doing egg hunts; my first target will be Larvitar, assuming I have the resources necessary to breed the way I want to (perfect IVs, suitable nature, egg moves...you guys know how I roll by now :p)

      Good luck everyone.
      Good luck! Approaching shiny hunting the funnest way possible sounds like a plan. It also sounds better than mine and G's idea some months ago that exerting yourself to the most pain possible while hunting was a good plan. LolxD

      *turns shiny hunting mode from Lax to G-Money Mad Hunting Level Delta*

      *Sits in corner scared* Must beat G. Higher number. More SRs. NOW.

      I was thinking of what I should hunt, and I thought, why not hunt for my favorite shinies? This had never occurred to me before, "lol."

      Rayquaza is far and away my favorite shiny: not only does its shiny form look incredible, but it's also a really awesome Pokemon overall. It's not accessible for me right now, though, as I'm still in Professor Elm's lab in HG, "lol." Seeing as I already have shiny Totodile, my path to Rayquaza will be:

      Shiny Cyndaquil -> Shiny Chikorita -> Shiny Ho-oh -> Shiny Groudon/Kyogre -> Shiny Kyogre/Groudon -> Shiny Rayquaza!!

      I have a lot of work to do to get there, but it'll definitely be worth it and I'll get a heap of the best shinies around on my way. I'm up to 495 Johto starters so far, and Cynaquil and Chikorita are both among my 5 favorite Pokemon.

      LOL, good luck with... all of that! You did set yourself a difficult path indeed, but any shiny path is a good one. And one that leads to Rayquaza, no less! Just.. asking/pointing out, do you have SS & HG? 'Cause you have to have a Groudon from SS, and a Kyogre from HG, to get to Rayquaza. The fact that you aren't going for two starters/Lugia made me wonder XP

      My second path will be continuing along the Path of the Ghost, as Misdreavus is one of my favorites as well. Going by Axiom 22 I'll hunt it in Pearl (20% in the Lost Tower at night) along with Gastly, but I need to get the starters first before I can get there. :cer_laugh:

      I'll also be going for Eevee in FR so I can get the legendaries/TMs and restart FR to SR for Squirtle and Charmander. That's a totally different path, "lol."

      Spoiler:


      Welcome back! Good luck!

      Instead of Skype, why don't you come on over to the Official SHC Chat?



      What!? I've never heard of this before. Could you explain a little more, please? I'm interested in hearing about this, "lol." Why wouldn't Cute Charm let you get female shinies?

      I don't remember much about it, but I read somewhere that because of the RNG, the odds of cute charm coincide somewhere with the odds of a shiny, and thus cute charm is pretty much reversed. I do believe it was something official I read it from, but you know. Sorry for the horrible explanation xD



      Haha, box hunting is one of the best ways to get shinies. You already have it caught, and it can't flee! :cer_laugh: Congrats on finding a shiny Vulpix!!



      Welcome back! Congrats on the Chikorita!



      Welcome to the SHC! Good luck!




      Welcome back! Shiny hunting capes are a great idea. We totally need to get those for everyone!!



      Congrats! 13,000 isn't really that high of a number for you, "lol." If it were anyone else, I would have told them that they deserved a shiny and a half for all that effort. :cer_tongue: You should've gone for 50k!

      26k if you include Kyurem, Treecko and Zapdos too. It made a little piece of me die inside when I saw that low number )":

      I really like your sig, too!

      Thanks xD



      Welcome to the club, ShinyAlex! I hope you get your shiny Bulbasaur soon and get many more after it.



      TSE is ALWAYS right - this does sound ominous! I hope it's good (nonexistent?) news, like finding 10 shinies or something!! :D



      Tell me about it!! Seriously, the time it takes SRing for a starter in White is completely absurd. I SRed for Snivy for a bit, and in the time it took me to do one SR, I could do something like 25 Johto starters, "lol." I'm seriously considering not going back and just breeding for them instead. Hopefully BW2 have a faster starter reset time, "lol."

      Then again, there's nothing a shiny hunter can't do!! Keep at it, hunter!!



      Hurry! Before it runs out!!! Get your shiny as soon as possible!! *rerouts all luck vents towards Jacinth*


      P. S. Is the multiquote not working for anyone else? I had to individually quote each message in a new tab and copy/paste them into one post. :/

      Obviously Worked for me

      EDIT: 888 Johto starters!

Anyway, congrats to everyone on their shinies!
      Welcome back and good luck with Groudon! :D

      more people need to come and chat, so here's the link http://xat.com/PokeCommunityShinyHuntersClub?p=6

      i will post, probably in spoilers, the stats of this Meowth and the Staravia when i can

      Mama Larvitar: 31/31/31/x/31/x knows Rock Slide, Crunch, Earthquake, and Stone Edge and holding the Power Def EV Item

      My rationale behind using the Power Def EV Item is this: Mama and Papa Larvitar both have flawless HP, Attack, and Special Defense already. The chances are that the offspring Larvitar will inherit Attack, HP, or Special Defense from one of them...using the Power Def EV Item ensures that I get the maximum number of 31s possible. Also, no Everstone on either parent because neither of them have good natures. I can't be bothered to go to all THAT trouble.

      Wish me luck you guys.
      That's gonna be one brilliant Larvitar haha xD

      Dude that sucks ): Hopefully there are many shinies in store for you in the near future!



      My hunts:

      Treecko: 8971 SRs
      Lugia: 295 SRs

      Haven't done much on either of them for the past few days, as I've been working on a drawing. Possibly 5 hours in it so far I'm also thinking about buying a Sapphire and a second SP to help with Treecko, but I'm not sure.

        Sorry TSE but I'm gonna have to disagree with you on the whole Cute Charm thing. I was talking to some guys at Smogon who dedicate their existence to understanding the RNG and they said it won't hurt and in some cases it can get the shiny odds up to at most 1/32, because it pins certain values of the PID removing some of the variables that go into deciding things such as Gender, Nature, IV's and Shininess. Note that to get enhanced shiny odds with a cute charmer you need one of the several combinations of TID/SID (This is an over simplified explanation, they took about an hour telling me all about their RNG research they've been doing for months)
        Anyway...
        My Hunts:
        Viridian Forest - 3863 REs
        Dialga - 1500 SRs
        Unown - 3863 REs
        Fossils - 400 revived

            Congrats on the shiny, Ho-oh, TSE!

            Congrats on the shiny Meowth, Keruso!

            Welcome to the club, ShinyAlex and Element0!

            I'm sorry to hear about your Emerald, DarkBreloom.

            Good luck on everyone's hunts!

            I'm MMing Elgyem now, along with Litwick and the Nidorans.

            Random.org is gone, so I will be discontinuing the random hunt of the week.

              Well, shiny Snivy hunt is over at i don't know how many Sr's (I got tired of counting, but it's above 1000.)

              And no, I did not get a shiny Snivy.

              I guess I accidentally clicked Tepig without noticing, so when I battled Bianca there was a shiny Tepig. At first I was mad it wasn't a Snivy, but oh well. At least I got a shiny.

              I'm so freaking happy I don't have to SR on that hellish game anymore. So annoying!

              The tepig is Bold; not very good, but I'm sure it could be worse. Anyways, I really don't care; my first SR'd shiny, so hurrah!

              I'm hoping to MM for Cubone after I beat the game.

                  @ Keruso lol
                  @ Jacinth Congratz on Shiny Tepig
                  anyway...
                  My Hunts:
                  Viridian Forest - 4585 REs
                  Dialga - 1500 SRs
                  Unown - 4250 REs
                  Fossils - 500 (< this one and dialga will remain as they are until I find either unown or whatever in viridian forest)
                  My logic behind those is simple. I need a RE shiny to complete the yearly quest so I will actually RE for a shiny, makes sense huh. anyway good luck to you and wish me luck on my hunts =)
                  EDIT: Oh yeah I found this btw

                  so yeah after 4585 REs this little fella showed up and with this I have completed the yearly quest *applause*
                  Here's what I found
                  1) Obtain a shiny starter (Charmander)
                  2) Obtain a shiny via encountering (Unown)
                  3) Obtain a shiny from an egg (Gulpin)
                  4) Obtain a shiny legendary (Ho-oh)
                  5) Obtain a shiny Dragon (Axew)

                    It looks like random.org was just down due to a glitch. When I tried to go there it kept sending me to a page that I only get sent to when a website doesn't exist. This the first time it's happened when it was just a glitch.

                    This week's random hunt is... Deino!

                    Congrats on the shiny Tepig, Jacinth!

                    Congrats on the shiny Unown, Arceus Whisper!

                      I think i'm going to put hunting for a shiny vulpix on hold and hunt something a bit easier for my first hunt. Maybe a Pidove or i'll try the weekly hunt for Dieno.

                        To Jacinth: Congrats, you got yourself a starter. Hopefully you will get snivy next time, maybe by breeding.

                        To Arceus Whisper: Congrats on the unown, and congrats on completing the 2012YQ.
                        Maybe you're the first, or maybe the second, don't know.

                        To Element0: Deino would be a good target.

                          I decided to go for a shiny dieno and have two dieno eggs that hatch within a few steps of each other. So every time I SR, I have two chances for a shiny. Am I doing this stuff correctly? This is my first time shiny hunting.

                            Shininess is set when you get the egg from the day-care man, not when it hatches. So, if you got the eggs, saved before they hatched, and then SR'd (which is what I think you're doing), you're doing it wrong. To MM by SRing, you have to save before you get an egg from the daycare man, get your eggs (5 is a good number), hatch them, then SR and repeat.

                            Anyway, I have no new shinies to report... I was on vacation for the last few days and did absolutely no hunting. No worries though, I have 3 days to hunt before I go to college and then a 10 hour car trip to hunt during as well. I'm at 5206 Palkias, 1915 Groudons (slacking on that one, I know haha) and 2359 Ponyta eggs. I'm also at a month in Meteor Falls and 4 months in Pokemon Tower. And almost 8 months for Snivy -.-

                            I've also decided that I'm going to go for a RE Pawniard again in my White version after Ponyta shines. Route 9 was my first RE hunt ever in any game and resulted in Garbodor even though I wanted Pawniard. I got a magnet pull magnemite so I'm hoping I will get Pawniard this time ^.^

                            Congrats to everyone who has gotten shinies recently, especially Jacinth on that Tepig. I accidentally click tepig all the time and I'm not sure how I'd react if it shone >.< Also, I can definitely sympathize about the hellishness of those SRs.

                            Good luck to all of you on your hunts!

                              Thanks rykerr1, that was the way i was doing it. Good thing I hadn't wasted to much time doing that. I'll go start hunting the right way now.

                                I was just messing around at the Global Trade Station and traded one of my Pokémon for a Lv. 1 Snorlax. Then later I found Kuro*, who offered me a Lv. 100 Shiny Porygon-Z! Too bad I lost my starter in the process. Sorry if GTS Shinies don't count.

                                  look at that gorgeous beauty!! i started this hunt back in March, and for some reason, i didnt touch it again until this week. i've been hunting it almost non-stop, except for when i had to go to work. I happen to have been in the chat, which, by the way here is the link http://xat.com/PokeCommunityShinyHuntersClub?p=6 and no one was there. G had come in previously, and had left while i was busy with something else. I had heard the sparkles (as i wasnt watching the screen) and started choking on my own spit as i looked down to see a (to me) black Gigas. Now, i've been hunting all day (except for about 5 hours when i had to go to work), so my DSBulk was almost dead when it showed up. i had 64 Ultra Balls and 1 Master Ball when i started, and when i got down to my last Poke, which happened to be my Shiny Regice, i feared the worst and just MasterBalled the guy. i ended with 29 Ultra Balls. Im currently still in Snowpoint Temple with a near dead DS, so i wont be getting out for a while.

                                  ......now, what to do next? should i finish my Enigma Stone event Lati? or should i continue Hatching Magikarp in White/Black........

                                  I'll figure it out.

                                            That's a great idea! I think I'll try it sometime, breeding for competitively viable shinies. Although, I would really try to get an Everstone on one of them - Nature has a huge effect on their stats, and you've already done all the hard parts, "lol."

                                            Aw, that's terrible. I hope you can reclaim your lost shinies soon!

                                            Oh, boy. This sounds dangerous!

                                            Good luck! Approaching shiny hunting the funnest way possible sounds like a plan. It also sounds better than mine and G's idea some months ago that exerting yourself to the most pain possible while hunting was a good plan. LolxD

                                            Gah!! Don't remind me of the horror of those dark days! *still has Icefall Cave hunt at 10777 encounters and hasn't touched it so that he can have a higher number than TSE*

                                            ...

                                            And Shiny Noctowl is just pure awesome. I hope you recieve one in your epic battles through... death and stuff!

                                            Have you been SRing for Giratina? The Pokeradar is pretty tough to master, but once you get it down it's probably the quickest way to get lots of shinies. I would recommend trying Giratina first (or Eevee or Beldum) and maybe try shiny hunting by exploring the grass/caves and encountering as many Pokemon as you can. There are lots of great Pokeradar guides too that I could link for you if you want to practice chaining, too.

                                              Welcome to the club, Eeveelution Co-ordinator! I'm sorry to hear about the Metapod. In the future please don't double post. If you have more to say and no one has posted since you last posted please just edit it into your last post.

                                              This week's random hunt is... the Ghost-type!

                                                Sorry Latios Master, I'm kind of new at this. It will never happen again! Oh, and thanks for the advice G-Money, I think I might re-start with Giratina with SRing as I tried in an old save file, but lost patience and gave up (I heard something happened to the pokemon after SRing, but only recently did I find out it could become shiny!) and if I succeed I might try Volcarona in Black or try Regigigas (congrats by the way Keruso, I'm probably not going to be able to get it whatsoever!) Oh and I have two things to ask everyone. 1) Can you catch a shiny Suicune/Entei/Raikou in HG/SS for the Zoroark in Black and White? Just wondering. And finally, G-Money, please can you link some guides as I am terrible at the moment, tried the most common pokemon on a route and swarm pokemon but the chain always breaks at 14! No matter what I try! Thanks and goodnight (even though its the middle of the day, but you know what I mean!)

                                                  No, you must have the Event Dogs in order to get the Zoroark, otherwise it will not work (what happened to that 2nd question?). I always had some trouble chaining myself, and then afterwords, felt bad about getting an easy to get shiny (i've actually considered releasing the shinies i have captured through this method). But, to help you out, buy repels. LOTS of repels. i once had just about 550 repels in either Pearl or Platinum. Go into the middle of the grass and use the radar. go to whichever shaking spot you want. Rinse and repeat if you dont like that poke. after you kill/capture the Poke, watch for the shaky patches. ALWAYS GO FOR THE ONE FARTHEST AWAY, BUT DO NOT GO TO ANY THAT ARE NEAR THE EDGE OF THE GRASS. that will always break your chain. Rinse, repeat, shiny
