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
    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!

      Congratulations the shiny Tropius and Fletchling guys!

      I'm trying for a shiny Roselia via Masuda Method. Currently 90 eggs in and nothing yet.

        Wow, it's been a while since I've popped in here. Just wanted to post a few shines I've caught during the past month.

        I caught a shiny two Skiddos after many attempts to chain successfully. Put one on wondertrade, and got a Bunnelby. Woo-freaking-hoo.

        I also caught a shiny Krabby in the friend Safari.

        Hello to all the new members, and happy hunting!

            Espurr refuses to shine. Last night I just got *another* shiny Oddish. I was hoping this hunt wouldn't take a more than a month but it's looking like that's going to be the case.

              Figured out my next Diamond hunt. Fishing in the Great Marsh. Two things to accomplish here; first fishing shiny, and first safari zone shiny. I am using super rod so the pokemon I can get are Carvanha, Whiscash, and Gyarados. Anything will do here as long as I catch it.

              Hey everyone, it's been a while. :3 Welcome all the new comers! I've been super busy with school but I finally got a little bit of a break and I picked up my Pokemon X again... (I had only gotten past the first gym after school craziness.) ....now I'm soft resetting for a shiny snorlax. Hopefully it's possible to get one at that point in the game, haha. I couldn't find information confirming or denying through google.

                  I'm up to nine shinies. I have six from chain fishing relicanth, octillery, poliwag, clauncher, seeking, and magikarp. The poliwag, clauncher, and magikarp I have evolved already.
                  And I have caught three with the pokeradar ditto, plusle, and pangoro.
                  I'd really like a shiny ghastly.

                        Congrats on getting 1 clamperl! Now just for the other haha!

                        I don't like it, but I think after the Pokeradar, RNG, Shiny Charm, lowered odds, fish chaining, action replay, and now shiny values I just finally decided to call it quits caring any more lol. After all that I've come to terms with the fact that my effort in my shinies will never amount to anything because anyone who wants the shinies can get them ten times easier some other way. It won't stop me from hunting, I just don't really care any more.

                        I also personally consider shiny value-ing and RNG to be cheating myself haha.

                        In other news I'm up to 3,150 in a Lillipup/Mincinno/Eevee safari. Hoping to get something soon so that I can do a race with a couple friends!

                          Well, I was going about my day when I found a shiny Phantump in the wild. XD I was actually in a Friend Safari, and I was seeing what Pokemon were in the Safari until the little shiny showed up.

                          Right now, I'm trying to get a shiny Munchlax with Masuda Method. Wish me luck guys!

                            Congrats Paulthagerous !! I haven't been in here in some time, but in Black 2 I was exploring Reverse Mountain, and closed the DS when a wild Pokemon appeared to do something else. When I opened my DS I noticed this little guy and caught him ASAP with one Ultra Ball!

                            I screamed really loud and was really happy. I love Skorupi's shiny colors. Named it basil. :3

                              Hope it's OK if I join? Here's a list of all the shinies I've managed to obtain in my copy of Y so far. I've been quite the vigilant hunter this time around! I know some are repeats but I batch hatch the eggs so it happens when I'm lucky.

                              Kingdra - Fish
                              Dragalge - Fish
                              Klefki - Radar
                              Emolga - Safari
                              Luxio - Safari
                              Luxio - Safari
                              Gardevoir - Masuda

                                      I swore I signed up here - PM me if not.
                                      I got 2 shinys while I was gone - generic Lake of Rage Red Gyrados in SoulSilver, and a shiny Poliwag in Pokémon Y from a friend.

                                      Gave up on SRing for shiny snorlax because I don't like SRing and I figured I can MM a shiny munchlax later if I really want to. Lol Now I'm just doing some REs and leveling my pokemon... I should probably just get further in the game. :X

                                        Hi, I'd like to join the club.

                                        All the shinies I have are:
                                        Drapion - Masuda method and got it today yay (insanely lucky 95 eggs)

                                        I don't think the shiny Relicanth I got in a random encounter on a hackrom counts but I'm mentioning it anyway. I'm kind of a noob shiny hunter but lately I've been getting into it more and more. I'm on the process of getting a shiny Kyurem as of this moment but my hopes aren't high since I pretty much exhausted all my luck on that Skorupi.

                                        I'm currently MM'ing for a Shiny Bulbasaur. I've got a box filled, and I'm ready to go up to 1,000. I just hope I get it! <3

                                          I just found a shiny Duosion in a Friend Safari today. I actually didn't know it was shiny until I put it in my PC. I mean, to me, there isn't much of a color difference between Duosion and shiny Duosion, so I never noticed. Xd But I evolved it into a shiny Reuniclus.
