Congrats on Piplup! Really enjoy seeing peoples long hard work finally pay off :) good job!

Been doing plenty of RE's today, I'll do a few more tonight and then update my sig with current total.

@cocoa Ah couldn't remember if Ho-oh could be caught before 8th gym. If not then that sucks but I'll change up my tactics. I'll probably RE tentacool since thats easier and almost guaranteed in certain waters and then I'll MM something else for 8th hunt.

Major congrats to rykerr on Piplup! I really love that shiny and you worked so hard for it!

My virbank complex hunt is at 9,786 REs and nothing yet. Hopefully I'll get it soon, I'd like to continue my BQ. I've decided my next BQ target will be another Virbank Complex hunt if I get Magby, Growlithe, Koffing, or Patrat. So if I get Magnemite, I'll hunt Eevee instead.

Good luck everyone!

I'm currently Hunting to reclaim a Shiny that was stolen from me a long time ago, which is Shiny Electrike. It was my very first shiny (not including the Gyarados from G/S/C). I originally caught a Shiny Electrike on my Old Sapphire Version, I didn't even know what Shinies were back then. By the time I found out about Shinies, Someone who I thought was my "Friend" stole my game. I could never get my game back because he never came back over after stealing it...

Anyway, I thought I would include what my latest Shiny was, Shiny Swablu, It's been a Level 100 Shiny Altaria for about 3-4 months.

Good luck to everyone else on they're hunts!

Keep up the good work, that Eevee will definately shine soon!

Very happy with today's progress. Got the next 2 days off work so should be able to put in a good amount of encounters.

Best of luck to everyone on their hunts!

Hi guys, I'm still SR for shiny Turtwig in my Pearl.... the little turtle is giving a fight but I know it will shine
Thnx Serris, looking Turtwigs dopey face keeps me motivated to see it shine XD, Larvesta is such a cool shiny, hope it shines fast for you
WOW!!! so jealous.... Congrats to elorasheappard for the incredible Charmander, hopefully your Char family is completed really soon
Special congrats to Chibi_Muffin for shiny Turtwig -as you can see my target at the moment- and to rykerr1 for getting shiny Piplup after such a long hunt and for being a Sinnoh starter, the same as my Turtwig, wich has to be the hardest starters to SR -at least in Pearl, no idea in Platinum-

Good luck guys SR, RE and MMing for your fav shiny, it is on its way

You're welcome, 7. Turtwig is probably my favourite of the Sinnoh starters shiny and non-shiny. Definitely one I'll want to hunt. I hatched a lot last night. I was up all night hatching. I think I've done about 200, I think. I'll edit the post with the exact number when I count them up. It is a cool shiny. I was SRing Volcarona and hatching Larvesta, but I wanted to MM on both games, so that's what I ended up doing. I haven't hatched a shiny this year, from what I remember. Last shiny I hatched was Solosis, and that was December last year. good luck with the hunting, 7.

And good luck to everyone else with their hunts, and congratulations to rykerr1 for the Piplup.

I know I said I was quitting shiny hunting until I got the new games, but this unfinished bulbasaur hunt is bothering me. So I resumed the hunt :p
Just over 800 eggs now. Looks like another long hunt >.<
Which would be fine if I could make it to 9000, but more likely I'll get to 4K and a shiny will ruin my streak.
I mean, if it's going to ruin my streak anyways, it could at least have the decency to do it in the first few hundred eggs. : /

I just recently got a Shiny Bulbasaur off the GTS. And I already have a Shiny Charizard.

Which means now I'm MM-ing for a Shiny Squirtle :p

just 70 eggs so far, and no shiny yet.

I just decided when English version of BW2 comes out I will be RE at Sangi Ranch. I might even do a Badge Quest ^_^

Anyway preparing to MM for Zubat.

EDIT: I considered RNG'ing but I decided it isn't for me. Honestly, there is no fun if you remove the element of surprise. I will enjoy MM/RE/Badge-Questing-ing a lot more :p

Good luck everyone.

Thanks for all the congrats on Larvesta everyone ^_^ I've been playing non-stop since then to train her up to put in my team and finally got my 8th Gym Badge and beat the E4 for the first time XD. Training post E4 seems pretty tough this gen, with all the level 65s T.T I should be able to get her evolved pretty soon though.

Congrats lunadelica, Chibi_Muffin, shanil123, elorasheppard and major congrats rykerr1 on Venipede, Turtwig, Tepig, Charmander and Piplup!

I actually love Samurott's Shiny colouring <3 I like the darker blue and peachy coloured shell. I noticed the other day I tend to love all the golden coloured shinies too XD. My least favourite Shiny is Garchomp >< I wish it kept Gible's colours or something similar. And I wish Persian had nicer colours, like a black or grey.

I'm not sure what to hunt for next. I'd like to MM for the other two Unova starters so I can have all three. For White 2 I want to use Tepig, but I'm thinking of MM one now to use in my first playthrough~ I want to SR for the musketeers, Kyurem and Thundurus sometime too.

Good luck everyone on your hunts! :3

I'm actually wondering whether I should MM for Tepig or not.

I want one (that blue flame on Emboar is just awesome) but I already have a Shiny Snivy (Serperior now), so if I got a Shiny Tepig then that means I must MM for Shiny Oshawott as well to complete the trio :p
