    Oh my, look at what crept in while I was training my brand-new penta-perfect Charizard!

    Spoiler:


    This is an intriguing Shiny to find and capture, seeing as I used it as the main figure in a Valentine's Day picture about eight years ago (Wow, has it been that long?). Friend Safari odds taken into account, I'll still keep Valentyka for the reason just mentioned. It may be a silly reason, but I love silly things!

        Update on the shiny hunt: 100 eggs in, still no Magikarp. I have no luck whatsoever.

        Anyway, I would search for shiny Spritzee but, well... Pokemon X. Alas!

                      not sure when i was here last, but it must have been after i posted the Mime Jr. and Skorupi, so here goes:

                      I decided to attempt chain fishing for the first time so i had to go find a Suction Cups Inkay (which took about 10 Inkay before i got the right one) and after 15 encounters, i get this guy:
                      Spoiler:


                      then i was traveling through Friend Safari's seeing what i had. i went through one of mine who was a ground type, saw the Nincada and Trapinch and moved on, not realizing there was a third Poke in the Safari. so i went back in, and the first time the Poke showed:

                      and then, i was running in a Fire Safari, and this showed:
                      Spoiler:


                      right now, im attempting my first/second ever MM (my first actually being a stopped Magikarp in White at 95 eggs) with Gible. i had this thing a while back that i wanted to do a full party of all six dragons from all 6 gens on a game run (and here i keep thinking Tyranitar is a Dragon). i currently have two boxes of FailGibles

                        I was training my Slowking (so close to lvl 100!) and Spritzee in the Friend Safari, when I came across this cutie!

                        Spoiler:


                        Congrats on those three, Keruso, and that Espurr, Muani! I'm definitely going to try for an Espurr some time!

                            I'm on my 80th egg and still no shiny Mawile. I'm not giving up since mega Mawile is one of the reasons I bought the new gen. I'm doing the masuda method and out of curiosity; having my Mawile hold an everstone doesn't effect the method -- right?

                              I'm on 110+ Mawile eggs so far-- I think the everstone just increases the chances of it inheriting the parent's nature(s). Try having a Pokemon with Flame Body in your party to make the eggs hatch faster! My favorite spot to hatch eggs is right next to Prism Tower-- you can just hold ( or tape ) down the control stick and go around in circles.

                              Good luck, and keep hatching!

                                  Hooray! I got myself a Shiny Roggenrola a few days ago - I was breeding on Y -, which ends a hunt that was actually started on my Black. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

                                  While that is a great way to autopilot hatching five eggs, it's actually not the best way to hatch the most eggs in the shortest amount of time.

                                  When you take (up to) 255 steps or when you receive an egg, the remaining "Egg Cycles" until an egg hatches for every egg in your party goes down by 1; I say "up to" because (an) egg(s) you just received start(s) at 0 steps out of 255, but one(s) you already had with you is/are not at 0 steps. When the value of Egg Cycles hits 0 on any egg, the egg(s) hatch(es), with a descending priority being given from the ones on the top of the party down to the bottom of the party (this is why you sometimes hatch two eggs one step apart; only one can hatch at a time, but both of them have finished their counts); any eggs that don't hatch when the other(s) do(es) still go down one Egg Cycle.

                                  If you take this into account, you can take up to an extra 255 steps for every other egg in your party at the time your first egg hatches or you pick up an egg. If you take ~16 or 17 seconds (each second is around 10 steps' worth) to go into the Day-Care, run to the box, quickly deposit an egg, X out of the box and remount your bicycle outside the building and pick up an egg/keep hatching, you'll get a fair amount of extra eggs done, especially if you have a Hatching Power active on yourself.

                                    That's actually really interesting! I may try that next time I do a Masuda hunt. I've always just gotten five and hatched those five, but I'm willing to experiment haha.

                                    Anyway hello there everyone, remember me? Lol, since I was last here I've managed to find two shinies:
                                    *BIG PICTURE WARNING
                                    Spoiler:





                                    Yep! I was going after shiny Fennekin at the start, and I got to about 1,000 SRs but just didn't want to carry on with it. I then did various amounts of REs around the region, and then settled down to do some MM. I got to around 1250 eggs and put it on hold to get some of the friend safari action everyone else'd been having... and achieved my first shiny this gen, a shiny reclaim Mightyena! (Reclaimed from an uncatchable pooch from about a year ago). For the rest of the day and into the next day I hatched eggs hardcore, really wanting the hunt over with, and managed to get a live shiny Fennekin!

                                    Somehow I managed to get near perfect competitive battlers with these two, with Mightyena having 31 IVs in Attack and Speed, and Fennekin having a Timid nature and 31 in Sp Attack!

                                      Hiya, I would like to join!

                                      At the moment I have a Shiny Arcanine, Clauncher and Ditto. I used to have A shiny Wingull and Horsea, but traded both.

                                      Over the next few days/weeks I'm going to be hunting for shinies through the various methods. Right now I'm MMing for a shiny Deino.

                                      NIce shinies by the way guys and gl on future shinies!

                                        Ended up getting 2 remoriads while trying to get 2 clampearls. Haha. I will.get them for my lovely shiny huntail or gorbyass.

                                        Been still trying to complete my huge gaming backlog. Rushing games isnt ever as fun though. But needs must.

                                          I wouldn't quite call that "near perfect", since it's much quicker to get a 5-6 perfect IV Pokémon (5 is best for certain things) this gen than in any other thanks to Destiny Knot, egg moves keeping on passing down if the parent got it as an egg move (even if it loses it from level-ups at the Day-Care!) and...

                                          ...the fact that Friend Safari Pokémon have two guaranteed max IVs (and much higher Shiny chance). That's why your Mightyena landed two maxed stats and they landed on nice stats!

                                          Were you breeding for Fennekin with the Sp.Atk Power item on one of the parents or did you get lucky?

                                          In any case - as I mentioned yesterday, here's Slabhide, my Gigalith!

                                          The max IVs are marked in order, so they're Attack and Special Defense. Not amazing, but at least I didn't get a 31 in Speed, since that would be the equivalent of 0 on a Curse + Brave nature set, hah!

                                              Not near perfect as in near flawless IVs by any means haha. I don't think a flawless IV poké is even possible in the wild, is it? Lol!

                                              Nah, just as-near-to-perfect-as-you-can-get-by-luck-for-what-purpose-they-would-serve-in-battle-near-perfect. Yeah I did know about all those whatnots and things in this gen, which is why I actually checked Mightyena, just that it got the two it would possibly need the most, the Mightyena's stupid speed lowering nature *grumble grumble*.
                                              I did infact breed for Fennekin with the Sp.Atk item! Just wasn't sure if it was always 100% which is why I called myself lucky xD the nature was happenstance though, that was lucky indeed. :3

                                              Anywho congratulations on your Rocky guy and any others I've missed and of course, hello there and welcome to the club to any new hunters. It seems the new generation is providing a lot of those lol!

                                                Congrats on all the shinies guys! And welcome to all the new hunters!

                                                Anyway, got my 8th shiny on Y today, she is one I wanted back in 3rd gen but back then I didn't have the patience. Plus the Friend Safari helps a lot

                                                Anyway here she is:

                                                Spoiler:


                                                Best part is she has 3 perfect IVs! Perfect HP, Defence, Special attack. With Speed 25, Attack 14, and Sp Def 12 she is not 'perfect' but well above average

                                                Very happy.

                                                I believe that it is technically possible, but as the IV's are determined individually the probability is 1 in 32^6, which is roughly 1 in a billion. (1 in 1,073,741,824). In the Friend Safari, given there are two 31 IV's artificially loaded, it drops to 1 in 32^4, which is roughly 1 in a million (1 in 1,048,576).

                                                So good luck finding one lol

                                                  192. Eggs.

                                                  It took only 192 eggs for my shiny Fletchling to hatch, I'm honestly stoked. Am I the first to complete the November challenge? Salamence and Fletchling are my wonderful flying types!

                                                  His name is Kestrel, he's a gorgeous male Fletchling with GALE WINGS! I'm still pretty excited I got him, now to EV him up!

                                                    Huge congrats on Tropius! I've also always wanted one haha. Maybe I'll be inspired to find one one day.
                                                    Yeah, I think I'll pass on finding a flawless.. I could get 125,000 shinies in that time.

                                                    Huge congrats on Fletchling also! That's another one I really want lol!
                                                    In regards to the yearly progress- if I recall correctly one pokemon can only count once, i.e. your Eevee can only count for gen 1 or gen 6. Which should be fine because you have Fletchling anyway haha. I may be wrong though o.o

                                                    Also I'm wondering if G will say we have to get 2 shinies to count as 1, like with the shiny charm thing, since the odds are confirmed lowered? 1/4096!
