    Congrats to everyone on their recent shinies, especially Typhlosion_Hunter_Mark on your beautiful Growlithe and Storm_Dragoon, that is one gorgeously cute Skiddo!

    My SS BQ still hasn't kicked off for me, I've been SRing every chance I get I'm not at work for the last week and a bit and nothing has shone for me yet. Hopefully something will come up soon, I'd like to get going on this a little before ORAS comes out at the end of the month.

    Welp, it's been a while so a blanket congrats to the probable hundreds of shinies since my last post!

    Been putting some effort into my Y Badgequest. (I skipped the starter as I already had Chespin and Fennekin and I'd rather a Protean Froakie), and well, 1 Badgequest hunt started, 1 odds reached, currently at 4111 RE.

    Also have a Mudkip MM on the go at 310 eggs so far...

    Good luck to all those hunting!

    First off, congratulations to all the people who found new Shinies these past couple of days. Anyway, I personally did more than 100 soft resets for my Shiny Rayquaza hunt on my Ruby version yesterday, which was a great effort on my part tbh. I also hatched another 35 Magby eggs for my Shiny Magby MM hunt.

    Congrats to everyone on their recent shinies!

    So last weekend I was collecting some eggs that I put in my box (from previous MMs, I usually keep the parents in the daycare till I know I have hatched a shiny) anywho, I decided to hatch the leftovers and out popped a shiny Spiritomb, it took me by total surprise. And for awhile now I've been collecting eggs for a new hunt, which is Buneary, and last night I got my shiny Buneary, I'm still hatching the leftover eggs that were in my box so hopefully another one decides to shine but I don't mind if one doesn't, I'm still trying to decide what to hunt next, I think I will go for Mudkip, what's a good nature and IV spread for Mudkip?

    Once again congrats and good luck to everyone!

    I am back with news! The 494th egg I hatched was a Shiny Flabébé! She's Calm natured, White Flower and in a Quick Ball. Perfect Atk, SpA and SpDef. This is my 60th shiny currently in Y, too. I'll be resetting for Tornadus after leveling up Flabébé.

    Update: Phase 3 Mudkip - 4,000 SR (12,522 Total), Johto Starters - 3,000 SR (9,000 Seen)

    No sparkles yet. I really hope something shines soon! I'm a mere few hundred away from breaking my longest Johto starter hunt which shined at SR 3,310.

    Thank you Crimson Penguin for the good luck! Good luck with your hunts!

    Congratulations everyone! Especially Maldoror on Throh, Typhlosion_Hunter_Mark on Growlithe (You deserved it after that long Dratini hunt!), Razorbadger on Hoppip, Kacho on Inkay, Azulart on Sableye, Iwanug on Spiritomb and Buneary (!), and LilyValley on Flabebe.

    Good luck everyone! Especially to those with hunts over odds.

    I had really odd morning, it's too bad the rest of my day turned out to be bad

    this morning I tried chaining for Weedle again, after resetting over and over again a shiny Pansear suddenly appeared! this is one of the few times I accidentally got a shiny, so I was really happy, after catching him I chained my shiny Weedle, it appeared after a chain of 30-31 with the upbeat music playing~

    congrats on all of the shinies and good luck to those still hunting!

    pokemaster13 Shiny Hunter!

    Congrats to Sparky Mc-S on Stunky, maldoror on Grumpig, Dwebble, and Throh, Typhlosion_Hunter_Mark on Growlithe, Drakonekoshi on Pumpkaboo, Pansear, and Weedle, Razorbadger on Hoppip, Tagi on Wingull, Kacho on Inkay, Azulart on Sableye, Iwanuq on Spiritomb and Buneary, TheShinyLunatone on Vivillon, and LilyValley on Flabebe!

    I've just got an update on my hunts: Chimchar is at 15,500 SRs, Weedle is at ~10,700 REs, and Snivy is at 750 SRs. I got a lot more hunting done than I thought I would in the past two days, but still no shiny. Hopefully I can snag at least one more before OR/AS are released.

    Good luck on all of your hunts!

    So, I couldn't get 1,600 in yesterday like I wanted. But I did manage 1,550, which brings Lugia to 25,050. So I'm over 3x the odds :(

    Recently decided to put my Charmander hunt on hold after hitting the 2k mark. For now, my friend Sara and I are going through a soft reset race to see who can get a shiny starter as well as all the non roaming legendaries in their shiny forms on Heart Gold/Soul Silver. I've been streaming my end of it every night on Twitch and last night I got my shiny Totodile live! I put it on youtube too! I warn you guys, I got super excited so lower your volume!


    If anyone wants to come check out the stream, drop me a PM. Also I hope this isn't breaking any rules, if it is then I apologize and will remove the link if asked to do so.

    So I continued my hunt for mareep:


    Within about two hours so not a long wait at all.

    Since I hit my goal so quickly I went to try hunt in a friend safari. Of course I picked a ghost one, of course I forgot false swipe is a normal move and of course I didn't have any appropriately leveled pokemon with me.

    My reaction when shiny shuppet appeared went something like:

    "WOOOO! Oh ye-......hang on......ohhhhhhh"

    I then proceeded to accidentally faint it.

    I already got my shiny mareep (and wingull) so can't be too upset though heh.

    Congrats to everyone on their new shinies :)

    While breeding for a Riolu in a Dive Ball for my ORAS team on my japanese Y, I hatched my third shiny Riolu. I was rather surprised as I wasn't hunting for one (I already have one with good IVs). My new shiny one has a Jolly nature and Steadfast for his ability. He only has 3 max IVs, in special attack, special defence and speed which, considering the mother Lucario had 1 max IV, is pretty good. It is a Masuda Method shiny as I was using my 6IV english Smeargle and a japanese Lucario.

    I'm going to put off actively hunting for shiny Pokemon until ORAS get released (28th for me). My first target for ORAS is going to be a Rapidash in a Moon Ball.

    Good luck to everyone in their hunts, especially TheMaster327 on their stubborn Lugia.

    Welcome back :)

    I really think the Pokemon will be shiny locked but I hope not though as there's one in particular I'm desperate to have shiny too. If they can be shiny, it'll be my first SR target. I really don't see the point in the shiny locking the legendaries, it's unfair to those who want to get them legit.

    That's why quick balls are a godsend in that game. So many shinies caught with one for me.

    I backtracked a bit to see what I missed and I found your post. No need to be sorry! I am not the jealous type, congrats on your shiny Charmander! Maybe I will get mine before ORAS xD

    Hey guys! Its been a looong looong while since I have posted on here. I have gotten numerous shinies since my last post and am currently working on MMing Buneary. However, I'm sure most have you have seen the corocoro leaks but if not, I will be very general in my wording of my question....

    Do you guys think that the Pokemon in the leaks will be able to be SR'd for or do you think that they will have a shiny lock on them like the XY legends? I for one am eyeing one pokemon in particular to SR if they are not shiny locked. ;)

    Well, they have demonstrated that they damn well know how to use shiny locks on legendaries. I would assume they will ALL be locked, but I really hope they aren't. I suppose the best that will happen is that they'll lock the weather legendaries, but the Mirage Spot Pokémon won't be. Hopefully that's the case.
