Anyway a question for MM'ers out there: on average, how many eggs do you try to hatch a day? I am still trying to figure out my pace.
I tend to collect 3 boxes, hatch 3 boxes, collect 3, hatch 3, release all 6 and start over. Lately I've been collecting and hatching about 3 times a day so around 210 eggs per day? I think I did even more yesterday. However, I have a lot of spare time at the moment so I imagine that number will go down when I go back to uni and whenever I get some shifts at work.....plus I'm at my boyfriends this weekend and he won't want me being anti-social lol

In any case, just got up to 1840 eggs hatched. Would really like Shiny Ponyta to appear in under 2000 eggs but I'm not that hopeful.... :(

And congrats on the Shiny Aerodactyl and Shroomish!

When I get BW2 im gonna breed for a shiny Dratini so I can get shiny Dragonair... Maybe! I'm also going to try to get a shiny Kyurem so I can have a shiny White Kyurem!
Have you heard that Dratini is given away as a shiny in White 2?

That depends on what Pokemon you're MMing. With my current hunt I try to hatch 120-180 eggs per day when I'm hatching, since they are only 5,120 steps per egg and I use a Flame Body Pokemon. When I'm storing the eggs, I try to store at least 120 per day, but since that can be slow sometimes I only get 90.

Of course, I don't MM every day, as I prefer to SR =P For pacing there, I'm currently trying to get 700-1k SRs per day. Yesterday was the first day where I actually did 1k in a day, hehehe.

Anyway, I'm now at 4178 Giratinas seen. I won't really be hunting this weekend as I'm going to a family party today and a concert all day tomorrow. I haven't really been MMing since I've been REing in Sapphire, but I am almost done storing the next batch of eggs and will get to hatching at some point this week. Good luck to everyone on your hunts, hopefully something will shine for everyone =)

Now at 1,280 Tauros hatched, and growing somewhat demotivated... Good thing the Open is giving me a good amount of time to gather/hatch eggs at the moment...

Also have a side project on Platinum at the moment, SR in Turnback Cave (not counting them though...).

Hatched two boxes of Ponyta and did about 500 RE for Litwick. It is getting tedious.
