    Yes, it's the question everyone asks, what shiny do you want to get and why. I'm asking this just to see what anyone is hoping for. I know there are already posts like this, but I'm pretty sure there is none like this. You're probably wondering what mine is, right? It's houndour. A shiny, blue houndour. I just want a shiny mega houndoom, and also I like dogs, they're wonderful and houndour is a dog with bones comming out of it. I am currently trying to mesuda method it, but no luck. I just really hope I can get one. Anyway, I can't wait to see what pokemon you want!

      A shiny Greninja, those things look sweet.

      I've always wanted a shiny Venomoth, Lapras, Glalie, Togekiss, Reuniclus, and I'd love to have a shiny Aegislash. Each of their shiny colorings are just so vibrant and they looks completely natural whereas that's not always the case. I've never attempted to get any of them despite how much I'd love to have any one of these shinies. However, I am currently breeding Togepi in Y using the Masuda Method to finally knock getting a Shiny Togekiss off my shiny wishlist and adding it to my post-game competitive battling team. Maybe if I work up the time and determination I might try for the others in the future as well.

      Anyhoo! Since this is a rather broad discussion and not just something that applies only to X and Y, I'm gonna move this on over to Pokémon Gaming Central.

        I would love to have a shiny Flygon because the colors of it really are beautiful.

        I would love a shiny team to be honest, but most of all, I'd like a shiny Furret!

        I would love to have in shiny: Furret, Zigzagoon, Linoone, Buizel, Floatzel.... and of course Patrat and Watchog.

        I didn't mention MIenfoo or Mienshao since I already caught one.... I wouldn't mind catching another one in X or Y.

          Shiny Greninja looks absolutely awesome, really fits the ninja motif it's going for.

          Usually I'm not a fan of shiny colours to be honest, I'd never go out of my way to get one unless it looked really sick. I guess I like Shiny Charizard too, but other than that I'll leave getting shinies to chance!

            If I could only have ONE shiny in the world, it would be a Shuckle. I have one on Pearl actually, need to get it onto X.

            If we're talking ones we don't have, I'm unsure. If I can't think of one that looks cool then a rare one...

              Never really had the urge to get any shiny Pokemon, I don't really know how much look like anyway. I do have a couple though, like Wooper and Oddish on Diamond and Sapphire.

              Actually, one shiny that does look pretty sweet that I wouldn't mind going out of my way for is Ponyta, those blue flames!

                  I've been trying to get a shiny ninetales for a while now. I actually do have two shiny vulpix in platinum from chaining but they're both boys and I want a girl. In Y I could use the masuda method but I recently got into IVs so I want a (near) perfect shiny ninetales with drought. I feel like I'm asking for too much.

                    Probably wouldn't be hard to RNG a perfect shiny female vulpix

                    Anyways if I were to get any shiny it would probably be a magikarp, exeggutor (I got a perfect shiny exeggutor from a trade I was so stoked, but its name is in japanese =_=) or a honchkrow

                    Shiny Latios is one of my favorites. I really need to get off my lazy butt and RNG the one in Black 2 like I said I would. I've been so lazy with RNGing the past year. Ugh. And I also want a shiny Braixen. Other than that, there aren't any shinies I'm really after. I can RNG in gen V, so if the urge comes about, I can get it easily without anguish. :3

                      I don't really know how to RNG. I barely know what it is.

                        Keep going machu, you'll get your shiny Houndour!

                        As for me, I've already MM a shiny (actually 2) of my favorite poke, Rhyperior, in SoulSilver waiting for me when PokeBank is out. I've also always wanted a shiny Metagross as well after seeing it debut in the anime some time ago, and so I managed to MM a shiny Beldum in X and Y!

                        I'm currently working on getting a shiny Hawlucha with MM. I wasn't a fan of its normal color palette, but I've really taken a liking to its shiny one. The contrast of blue, black, and red remind me of gum/candy for some reason lol.

                        For those that really want their shiny pokes, I'd say the time is now to go for it. X and Y has pretty much reduced the odds even further than last gen, though the exact number is still rumored, from personal experience and reading of many others experiences I believe it to be true. Also with X and Y introducing new methods, along with the old ones, there's plenty of ways to hunt for a shiny poke. Here are the methods that I can recall: Friend Safari, Horde Encounters, Random Encounters, PokeRadar, Masuda Method, and Chain Fishing. Best of luck to all who join the hunt!

                            I've always wanted a shiny dragonite, the only shinies I have are Empoleon and Typhlosion, sigh...and those were from eggs, I have no hope in getting a hatched shiny Dratini, lel Oh well, I might as well keep trying,
                            And At least I have 2 so I guess I shouldn't mope

                            Same as LoudSilence, I usually don't really care for shinies - they just look kind of odd to me (magenta Kyogre just looks wrong). That said, I would want a shiny Charizard so much. Rapidash also looks pretty cool. I just wouldn't go out of my way to get a shiny, personally.

                              Gardevoir. Shiny mega Gardevoir looks incredibly cool. Unfortunately I've had no luck with the pokeradar or Masuda method...

                                The shiny I am really desperate for is Alakazam!! Alakazam is in no small part my favourite pokémon ever... he's just always been there for me, a good, solid pokémon who has (almost) always been available early in each game.

                                As I've been playing for a while I have come across a few shinies naturally, I have shiny Swablu, Jumpluff, Hariyama, Seedot and maybe a few more I can't remember. Don't think I've tried any of the methods. :/

                                    I really want a shiny female Klefki so I can name her Alicia Keys. Would also like a shiny female Sylveon to name after a gijinka character of mine.

                                    I already have my absolute favorite shinies, though: Giratina and Icy Snow Vivillon.

                                      Shiny Mawile!


                                      Dudes.

                                      I have been literally hunting for this thing for 4 days on X. SR with a Magnet Pull Nosepass up front and nothing! On Y I tried Masuda Method and hatched about five boxes worth until I threw in the towel.

                                      Something about not obtaining (I thought for sure it would've only taken me a day or 3) it is getting to me... secretly motivating me to continue on this incredibly difficult quest. I'm not a hunter, I often fall asleep with the game running because I really don't have the energy to reset after reset after reset. My wife thinks I'm a dork, but asked if she could give it a shot and went for 20 straight SRs lol (a couple hours ago). She loves me and my inner-child... :D But, yeah! I'ma keep at it for another 30 minutes or so and call it a night. If I don't find it by tomorrow I have no choice but to call it quits. I still haven't finished either of the games and I bought X to complete the story -- no Wonder Trading or hunting I told myself, but look at me now.

                                      I've always wanted to have shiny Rayquaza. It's got black and yellow color scheme, which looks pretty cool. I tried to get a hold of it by soft resetting in Ruby, but had to give up as I lost my patience. If I didn't, though, then would've been able to encounter it eventually. d: I also wanted to have shiny Umbreon, but needed to chain Eevee first, which I never got around to. Will get it done someday, though!
