Haha yes I was excited! Yoshi is a classic name I think a shiny starter deserves a great nickname!

Since getting Platinum and completing the main story, I have been fond of doing the Masuda method for breeding shinies. Haven't encounted very many in the wild. In White, i have found a shiny meinfoo and a Patrat. I have hatched through the masuda method and evolved a Chandelure, Haxorus, Pawniard, aong with some earlier generation pokes as well.

... I will not give up on my BQ, I will get a shiny before my second gym. 300 REs so far, none to be seen.
How did you get so lucky Cocodragon? Your starter took longer to shine than mine and mine took a few SRs and you got two shinies within a week or so.

Been hunting on route 9 for a shiny Pawniard but no luck yet. I'm only at 700 encounters though.

I also started a BQ on Soul Silver yesterday and I'm currently at 1,200 SRs for a starter.

Wheeeeeeeeeeewwwww! Shiny Totodile!!!!
Congratulations, Kurt! It's such a nice colour. Good luck with your next hunt in the badge quest.

Dan, I don't know if you saw my previous post, but good luck with your Slugma hunt, too.

And, of course, good luck to everyone else!

Calamity, thanks for responding to my post. I can understand where you're coming from, and if I offended, it wasn't my intention. I was just stirring a little! Everyone is entitled to feel their own way or react their own way to a shiny hunt, I guess, because we all put precious time and effort into hunting the silly things.

(Shinies aren't really THAT silly!)

Edit: Wow, congrats on that amazing Rayquaza, Spheals! It looks so nice! That will teach me for not refreshing to see the new replies.

Decided to start my first Shiny hunt, so going to be MMing for a shiny Absol. Was never going to be my first choice, but thought it would make a pretty cool partner for Black 2.
