    That's not good, my BQ is going down in flames. Are the official badge quest rules posted somewhere? Doing a BQ in Diamond is becoming less appealing by the second. I have high hopes of plenty of MM hatching in my future.

    hmmm i thought the same as heliotrope but idk much about badge quests just never seen someone MMing there BQ until on this site

    there are rules to BQ o.0.....

    usually most of the time they SR reset the starters then RE most of the rest

    If someone tries telling me I can't MM on my badgequest after I've already hatched 3,900 I will go mental!

    Why should it matter how someone legitally obtains the shiny before the badge? Especially when REing is the quickest method IMO.

    If it's your own personal badge quest it's your own personal rules. Enjoy it!

    lol not saying u shouldnt but just not very common in most BQ but i have seen some BQs wheere ppl MM like white so i guess u can gl dan dont give up your hunt when you've gone that far....... i know i wouldnt lol

    SphealsFTW Money is the anthem!

    Since when are there any official or defined rules for a badge quest? Just make up your own rules. As long as you get a shiny before each badge that's all that really matters. Not like you're gonna win a prize or anything for following a certain set of "rules."

    With that said, good luck to anyone out there who is currently working on a shiny badge quest. I'm going to start one on my LeafGreen as soon as Rayquaza shines (currently at 3000 SRs).

    Just to throw my two cents in.... I've seen plenty of people MM in 5th Gen BQs, so I don't see why you wouldn't be able to in 4th Gen. Personally, I've never MM'd for a BQ, but that's because my only BQ has been in LeafGreen.

    I don't intend to MM once my Black BQ starts (if Snivy ever shines), but that's mostly because I've pretty much designated my White version as my MMing-only game, excepting a couple RE hunts there.

    Anyway, I'm up to 975 Blitzles with no shiny... I'm about 60 Ponytas into the next 180, hopefully one shines. Otherwise, this hunt will hit 2k eggs combined. Good luck to everyone on their hunts =)

    yes some ppl MM but ive never heard of any badge quest rules......... not seeing why ppl are doubting MMing its a legit way to get shinies and most ppl MM on blakc/white the chances are even lower than on 4th gen

    I am nearing the 360 egg milestone in my Litwick hunt. Hopefully it shines soon. My friend found a Shiny Snubbull earlier in Platinum with chaining. I am hoping to get a shiny today too but we'll see.

    My brother got a shiny Grimer last night in his White, via MM (his first shiny in White). He doesn't tend to hatch large numbers of eggs, just keeps the ones with good natures.

    Me, on the other hand? Still hatching Tauros (slowly) on Black. Platinum news - I somehow managed to get to Cynthia with my party on level 49 highest, but with only 7 Full Restores remaining. I had no choice but to lose and I'll be level grinding soon... Then I can get to Pal Park and transfer my shiny Crobat over from my dying Ruby...

    No, as far as I know, unless it was meant to be shiny, like the event Pokemon, it can't legally be shiny.
