    How does everyone keep track of how many shinies they have hatched/SR/RE? Especially when you get up into the thousands.

    K. Also, I meant thousands of encounters of non-shinies to get a shiny.

    SphealsFTW Money is the anthem!

    A lot of people don't seem surprised on YouTube simply because they have so many shinies already. Also, by the time they start recording they may have calmed down already and lose their excited tone.

    Plus why would you care if someone else thought your shiny was hacked? If someone accused me of cheating I could really care less seeing as how I know that it's legit and the only person whose opinion matters is my own.

    Heliotrope it shone! ^_^

    That's not a very good reason to 'suspect' people - not everyone freaks out and starts screaming (and swearing, often...) like they've won the lottery when they find a shiny. I tend to just gasp and stare at the screen in shock for a few moments until it sinks in that the shiny's appeared. In fact I specifically calm myself down before I start recording any shiny I find; but trust me, I'm excited on the inside.

    I may act differently if I actually found some live encounter shinies. I've only found 1 so far out of 157. My shiny Cyndaquil: video

    Do I act excited enough for you? :p

    ^ yea some ppl dont jump scream like there crazy embarras there self on there videos i dont have live shinies but when fine them i am sorta surprised but i always miss the sparkles curse u Television but im still just excited 1/8192 chance is something to be proud of no matter who dislikes your videos shouldnt be a problem when they show the back of the DS and do an encounter thats enuff proof for me

    I'd just like to state that, at least for the 4th gen DS games (I can't speak for the 5th gen ones), the AR does not stay plugged in to the DS while the game is on, so showing the back of the DS doesn't necessarily mean that you aren't cheating; which is why I usually don't bother showing the back of the DS in my videos, or when I do, say "look: no cheating device" in a rather amused tone. If you want to show you aren't cheating, do a few encounters after catching the shiny.

    Thank you. I'm glad you enjoy them. n_n

    Well, it's true of the old DS AR (which now that I've checked, only seem to work with Diamond and Pearl). But I looked on Amazon and there seem to be different AR's with cartridge slots in them, so it may not be true of every AR. Either way, I'd do a few encounters after catching your shiny, just to be on the safe side. ^^;

    I'm not sure who I'm hunting for next yet (I was considering Natu, but I'm not too sure, since I kind of want to hatch for a Dream World one).

    I'm now at 500 Pansage eggs hatched. I'd like to complete my shiny monkey trio soon.

    Edit: Yes, I might be hunting shinies for the Kanto badges, too. I haven't decided that yet either. lol

    Still Sr'ing for Snivy which I've been hunting for about a month now. Stopped counting Sr's a long time ago

    Terra Force <-- Current Hunt

    Congrats on recent shinies everybody!

    I'm now nearing 5,000 encounters in my Virbank Complex hunt, so that is going pretty well. Really wanna continue this BQ. Might use repel trick to hunt for eevee since you can use that to make only eevee appear in the castelia park.

    Anyway good luck on your hunts everyone.

    I couldn't agree with spheals, cocoa, and helio anymore. By the time I start recording my videos I'm done running around the house screaming.pretty childish for a 24 year old but I don't care I'm unique. Anyways The only time I get that excited when I get a shiny is when it's early on. If it's a hunt that takes me forever I'm kind of mad at that pokemon and so when it shines I'm just like finally you stupid thing you finally shined! I'm also not going to take up a memory card or time by doing live shiny encounters, I thi k it's great for the few people that do it because it makes the video more interesting but I'm not going to go through the trouble.
