Shiny Pokemon Hunter
Okay, I've returned! I've gotten busy with finals and summer homework, so now I finally have time to post this.

I was surprised to this one, wasn't expecting it at all but it's a beautiful shiny.

Wow Corsola makes a very nice looking shiny, congrats! I just managed to get my shiny Helioptile last night.

Oh my god guys!
I was just testing out what would be my Anorith's Hidden Power type in my Sapphire Nuzlocke when this beautiful shiny just appeared!

[IMG139]http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/780263ShinyMarill1.png[/IMG139]

Because my battery ran dry on this Sapphire game cart, I kinda assumed it'd be impossible for me to get a shiny unless I started off with a shiny starter and an early shiny frame, so it caught me off guard big time!
I nicknamed her Sunshine because I knew what she would look like once she evolved into an Azumarill! Ooooh, I just love her! I always wanted a shiny Azumarill and I can get it now! :D She's also my first shiny on the third generation, I'm so excited!
She's Lonely nature, which isn't that bad and has Thick Fat as her ability. That will require some change once she gets to X after my Nuzlocke!

Now what does that mean ? A shiny Pokémon appeared on my Sapphire version with a dead internal battery. Can other shinies appear as well ?

Good luck everyone! :D

Congratulations everyone for the recent shinies!
-------------------------------------------------
After a while, I'm back searching for my shiny petilil in White. I'm not counting the encounters, but since Saturday I searched for 10+ hours Dx
I'm pretty sure I have at least 40.000+ RE since I started to hunt, the only shiny I found was a random Swadloon when I tried to reach Virizion.

The Prince of May, The internal battery is just for resetting. you can still find shinies by random encounters.

Shinies can most certainly be found on a dead battery, I got a random Makuhita a while back in a similar vein, and a friend I know (just for reference) got multiple shinies in dead battery games. SRing is the only thing it affects.

To be honest though, people need to know that you CAN find shinies in dead battery games, but they cannot get Soft Resetted shinies -- unless the file has an early shiny frame. In Emerald, Running Away from legends also works like REing, so shinies can be obtained via RAing.

A lot of false information seems to be spread. It's even in the first post that shinies can be obtained, but people aren't checking the first post often enough...

I am right now hunting for a Shiny Wurmple on both Ruby and Sapphire. So...you are able to get shines the same way in Emerald, because I was told by someone that Emerald works differently than R/S.

Sorry for my cluelessness. It always confused me how shinies worked in RSE... ^^' I didn't realize up to now that it only mattered with soft resetted Pokémon, even though I looked at the main post many times. :p

So long
Today, I was in a Friend Safari belonging to a good friend of mine, looking for a Female Quilladin with Bulletproof and an Adamant Nature. While looking for one, I found something else that I hadn't expected and wasn't looking for at all, but a very positive surprise nonetheless.

Getting good pictures from the battle was hard due to how much the camera moves around, but these will have to do. I also hope none of the first five are flipped, Photobucket decided to be a bit annoying today.

This is my first Shiny on X, and my first Shiny on 6th generation. It is also the second random Shiny Tangela I have gotten as I met one on FireRed earlier this year.

Things didn't end there though. I continued looking for the Quilladin I was after, and met something else I wasn't looking for.

This is the first time ever where have I met two random shinies in the same day. Never expected this to happen. Also, Lilligant is one of my favorite Pokemon and I didn't have a (randomly encountered) shiny Petilil before, so this was an even more pleasant surprise.

I've updated the completed hunt list on the first post.




Anyway, what do you all think if I added more locations for the CH? Since there are other beach areas.......

The locations I'm thinking to add are:

* Lilycove City & Mossdepp City (R/S/E), their beach is only place to obtain Pokemon in those two cities anyway
* Route 213 (D/P/Pt), it's also a beach
* Cyllage City & Ambrette Town (X/Y), for the same reason as Lilycove and Mossdepp

If all/most of you are okay with the addition, I'll add them in.










Ledyba is still proving elusive. A shaking liechi tree got me up to 10,140 SRs before it fruited, so now I'm waiting for the next red berry tree to start shaking.

Oh wow. Hope that Ledyba shines soon. Over 10,000 SRs......

Do you have the Shiny Charm?


For the past few days, I've been playing Y, I rented it to "Get all the Y exclusives" and today I thought..... How am I supposed to trade them....

I assume you meant the Mega Stones (since for the Pokemon you can just find them on the GTS or transfer them from Y to X via Bank)

In that case, find someone to help you? :p










As for my shiny news......I just wanted a few exp for my Salamence, so I entered a Friend Safari.....

This shows up.

[img139]http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll201/Aura_Sphere/throh_zpsff38e6c4.jpg[/img139]

Ignore the Pokerus, that was from my team, not found alongside him :p

Too bad the Nature is Quiet, but eh, it could be worse. At least the stat it reduce is a stat that Throh doesn't need anyway.

when I read about adding areas I was hopping you where gonna add azure bay since I'm hunting there and route 12 anyways....still hoping for a shiny to appear soon

Wow! Congrads on beating the CH! I've wanted a shiny zangoose, it's on my list.

For the past few days, I've been playing Y, I rented it to "Get all the Y exclusives" and today I thought..... How am I supposed to trade them.... Oh well! Back to the hunts!
I'm not planning on doing any more eggs n Honedge for a while. I think I'll do a few more SR's and start some RE's on Route 8!

I'd be happy to help, if you want just pm me

Congrats to AMV3021 on Helioptile, The Prince of May on Marill, and everyone else on your shinies!

------------

I ended up getting called in to work today, but it was much more unusual…I was asked to go to the downtown location to help with the new bottle production! So that was a refreshing change, even though a significant amount of that time was using a glue gun to set up the boxes :p But I just thought to myself, “Shiny hunting has prepared me for such repetitive tasks!” So it was different, simple, relaxing…I didn’t mind.

And I still did 500 REs and 300 SRs today. 10,700 REs for Scyther, 1,500 REs for Aron/Axew/Boldore, and 12,100 SRs for Ho-Oh. I also did 30 SRs for Snivy while doing my last batch of 100 REs, so that’s at 1,210 SRs.

Good luck, everyone (especially markasdarkas, LullabyVullaby, Shadowkrow, ChaoticInverse, Roseheart95, Keane, HGaddict, Cyberra, and Lunafloon)!
 
I've been really busy today and I haven't had much motivation to hunt, but I got a couple hundered SR's done today. But oh man, this hunt is really pushing me to my limit. 3305 SR's, with 9915 starters seem in total. By far, much more frustrating than my Chespin or Pumpkaboo hunt by far. I'm thinking that once I get to 4000 SR's i'm just going to give up. I've heard of people getting these things in under 700 SR's. So obviously i'll probably never get a shiny starter at this point. I don't even know why I ever thought it would be a good idea to start a BQ.

I'm so sorry about the rant, this hunt is just getting extremely discouraging, disappointing, sad, and I just don't know what to do. I probably really have no room to complain though, considering i'm sure that there have been SR Johto starter hunts that have gone on for much longer.

I've kinda lost count on the Ralts hunt considering i've paid so little attention to it. But i'll count all of them once I fill up my PC, write the number down, and then release them all so I can hatch more.

Congrats on your recent shinies everyone, and good luck on your present, and future hunts.

I put more effort into my random encounters for Shinies on Y version today and I encountered at least another 120 wild Pokemon along Route 4. I also continued my Shiny Electrike Masuda Method hunt and I hatched around 40 eggs and stored some more in my PC for tomorrow.

Hey everyone, unfortunately, I don't have any new shiny news. Still SRing for Mesprit in my White 2 and nothing yet. Was off for 3 days and go back to work tomorrow and was so hoping it would shine before I go back to work. Only at 4,600 SRs for it which I guess isn't close to the odds everyone mentions a lot. I don't know. It's just been a week since I haven't had a Shiny that it's a bit disappointing I guess.
Also working on SRing for the July CH on my Black 2 and it only sits at 1,771 so far. Would be awesome if they both shined for me at the same time. But when it does I'll reveal what Shiny I'm SRing in the game. Might all ready know which one.

Anyways, want to wish good luck to Cpchris on your hunt. Every time I see you post an update on your hunt, it keeps me wanting to keep going on mine. Hope you see something shine soon.

And to ThunderKnightSilver, you shouldn't give up. Trust me, I've wanted to with my current hunt but just keep going at it. I know it's hard but when it finally shines for you, it's totally worth it.

There's always dex number/type, or date obtained.


Hunting for Litwick atm because a friend requested it, gathered a box of eggs, gonna get more.

I has a blue spider!

[IMG139]http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s225/Primus001/Shiny%20Pokemon/Picture6424_zps4da25bad.jpg[/IMG139]

She came out of egg 2,501 ^_^ Her name comes from Greek mythology; Arachne was a weaver who boasted about being a better weaver than the goddess Athena and for it was turned into a spider.

I am now collecting eggs for lunatone, to go along with my shiny solrock.

Oh wow. Hope that Ledyba shines soon. Over 10,000 SRs......

Do you have the Shiny Charm?

I do not... And it's up to 10,600 SRs now. I think this stupid ladybug wants to give Shy's torchic a run for its money *glares daggers at ledyba*

And there goes my berry tree... This one was an occa (the liechis aren't shaking >.< ). Total count is now 10,728 SRs

Oh, this always seems to happen... Right when I start to complain the most about a shiny never appearing, BAM! "Here's your shiny! Now shut up okay?"

I wish that worked for me, considering what I've had to say about this ledyba...

Oh, this always seems to happen... Right when I start to complain the most about a shiny never appearing, BAM! "Here's your shiny! Now shut up okay?" But seriously, shiny Totodile! Just what I wanted! After a total of 3,340 SR's, that's 10,020 total starters seen! I can't really believe it right now! I have named him, Rotodile, just for fun and because it sounded kinda cute. Unfortunately, he's a Modest nature, which isn't really good for a Totodile, but i'm not complaining! He also must have a really good defense IV because it has a stat of 12, and I fought a few Rattatas, and Rotodile can tank their hits like they were nothing! Anyways, here's a few pictures!

You definitely wern't wrong, and i'm super happy about my new Totodile! I think i'll try my best to be super patient on my future hunts. Thank you!

Anyways, congrats to everyone on your recent shinies, and best of luck to those still hunting!

Congrats to everyone on their recent shinies, and good luck to everyone hunting :D

Been a long time since I've posted, but now I'm off college for the summer, I've picked up shiny hunting again. At the moment I'm switching between starter hunting on Sapphire and Soul Silver, since I want to start badge quests on those games.
