      I dropped off the face of the earth at the beginning of this month, and now that I'm back I figured it's update time.

              After over 5000 Torchic eggs on Emerald...
              After over 3000 Eevee eggs on Pearl...
              After over 4000 non-Masuda Nincada eggs on Soul Silver...

              We bring you...

              A Shiny Litwick Chandelure!

              I decided to take a break from my feverish nickname-all-born-Nincada anti-trash byte routine and hatch something simpler. I hadn't tried Gen V breeding yet, so I thought it would be nice, for a change.
              I smacked a Koffing on, passed the egg move, then bred one of the first few Litwick with a Ditto for something between 200-500 eggs!

              I was going to take a cap of the Litwick having just hatched, but I went to the nickname screen too quickly (and I'm also not fond of letting my Shiny "hang", saveless, while going for photographing devices).

                So stoked for this one. Psyduck is a personal favorite of mine, just because of the old anime. I loved Misty's Psyduck to death as a kid, he was just such an idiot. The turquoise color is sick too. I have a thing for blue shinies, dunno why.

                Also digging the new userbars. Great job!

                Never seen a shiny Litwick in my life, it looks pretty sweet. Not a fan of Chandelure's shiny coloration though, but that's just me.

                I encountered a shiny Venonat this morning. Unfortunately, I had low battery, and my power failed before I could catch it.

                The grind to masuda breed Sandshrews begins today, as I just realized Sandslash is a downright badass looking shiny.

                  Nooooooooo! Were you hunting somewhere where you couldn't plug it to a charger or something? If not... There's no harm to charging the DS while playing; only leaving it charging after it's already full!

                    There's no harm to leaving it plugged in after it's already "full" either. The DS, and pretty much all electronics with the exception of a few older cell phones, stop charging when they reach full charge, whether they are plugged in or not.

                    Sorry, just had to jump in there, and yeah I'm a member

                      Yeah, that's true - I've noticed the failsafe mechanic of the DS, but didn't realise it was actually a failsafe. Regardless, I try to plug it off soon after it's charged because silly Portuguese plugs keep using up energy as long as something is connected.

                      EDIT: Hah, I gave my Shiny card a snazzy graphical upgrade!

                        I was playing while in line at the DMV. It must have been a sight to see for the other people there, I kinda flipped out. Ah well, c'est la vie.

                          Still no luck on Shiny Absol, trying to MM it so I can use it right away when I start Black2. I did get the Gamestop Dialga in a trade, but I don't count them just put them on my list.

                              Congrats on the shiny Litwick, Runasutaru! At first I thought you were recapping three successful hunts, lol. Good luck on the other hunts.

                              I'm sorry to hear about the Venonat, Bobith. I've lost progress from batteries going dead, but fortunately not a shiny. Good luck on the Sandshrew hunt. Hopefully it shines for you soon to replace the Venonat. I usually charge while playing when the battery is low.

                              Congrats on the shiny Absol, Razer302!

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

                              I got two shiny Dialga from GameStop yesterday, one on each game, White and B2.

                                  Hi can I join? I have no shiny pokemon yet but I am searching! I just hope my first chance isn't a terrible pokemon because if it is… well it's still a shiny

                                  Oh and when you find a shiny it sparkles right? Because I forgot if it does and if it does will it sparkle pokemon black?

                                    Hey everybody, I was thinking about SRing for a shiny Cyndaquil again, as well as a shiny totodile and chikorita to send to pokemon X and Y (hopefully it will be possible to do that by trading to white 2 first!), what do you all think?

                                        I haven't been shiny hunting much since early August so I haven't gotten anything recently. I started my first SR hunt yesterday. I might be 350-400 SR in by now. I am going for shiny Groudon.

                                          Hey everyone, new user first time posting.

                                          I've been shining hunting since 2007 but I took a break from all things Pokemon for about a year just recently began playing again and Pre-ordered Pokemon X (Very excited for it!).

                                          Anyway here are my shinies in no particular order: They're all 1/8192 odds)

                                          Raticate (originally Rattata) - RE (Soul Silver)
                                          Golduck (originally Psyduck) - RE (Diamond)
                                          Mewtwo - SR'd off and on for over a year, not sure how many SRs total. Too many. (Leaf Green)
                                          Pelipper (originally Wingull) - My first shiny, random encounter (Emerald)
                                          Pelipper (orginally Wingull) - RE (Sapphire)
                                          Dodrio (originally Doduo) - RE (Diamond)
                                          Registeel - 200-300 SRs estimate (Emerald)
                                          Primeape (originally Mankey) - RE (Fire Red)

                                          Crobat (originally Golbat) - RE (Diamond)
                                          Bibarel (originally Bidoof) - RE (Pearl)
                                          Palkia 400-500 SRs (Pearl)
                                          Meganium (originally Chikorita) 1100ish SRs (Heart Gold)
                                          Alakazam (originally Abra) Game corner not sure how many SRs as I had done some SRing before I took a year break. Also my newest Shiny. (Leaf Green)

                                          Lost shinies:

                                          Arbok In the safari zone (marsh whatever) threw 6 safari balls none of them caught it, it fled. I died a little inside that day. That was a few years ago but I remember it like it was yesterday.

                                          Basculin Red striped one. After my year break I started playing Black again randomly encountered it whilst fishing for new Pokemon to fill the Pokedex. Threw an Ultra ball (forgot that Basculin had a move that killed itself) and it used final gambit. I had a Master ball too...

                                          Currently Dual hunting Kyurem in White 2 and Black at around 2500 SRs.
                                          Working on reclaiming Arbok the past few days in Soul Silver using repel trick to the right of Pewter City.\

                                          Wish me luck

                                            Arbok is one of my favorite shinies. I dig any gold shiny. Because gold...is shiny.

                                            I finally got that Sandslash during a ten hour grinding period waiting in a car. It's possibly my favorite shiny I own up to this point.

                                            However, I'm at a loss for what to hunt next. I'm sure it'll come to me eventually.

                                              I probably will not finish the challenge this month. I don't plan to play tonight. I'll try again in September.

                                              However, I have evolved my Taillow, Torchic, Ralts, and Snorunt all the way. Haven't gotten Beldum completely evolved yet. Been playing though Black 2 with my shinies and a few others.

                                              Yes it will sparkle if it is a wild encounter. It will not sparkle if it is from an egg. Even if it did not sparkler, most pokemon have a huge color difference and should be spotted fairly easy, but yes it does still sparkle if it is an encounter and it will sparkle if you use it in battle.

                                                However, I have evolved my Taillow, Torchic, Ralts, and Snorunt all the way. Haven't gotten Beldum completely evolved yet. Been playing though Black 2 with my shinies and a few others.




                                                Yes it will sparkle if it is a wild encounter. It will not sparkle if it is from an egg. Even if it did not sparkler, most pokemon have a huge color difference and should be spotted fairly easy, but yes it does still sparkle if it is an encounter and it will sparkle if you use it in battle.
                                                Ok and can I find a shiny by just walking aimlessly in a cave or tall grass?

                                                    Yes, there is a 1/8192 chance of a shiny appearing in any given encounter.
