    Congrats to Iwanuq on Kangaskhan, Tranquill, and Cubchoo, serpent222 on Stunfisk, Fire Hero on Bagon, Dangertrout on Rattata, Eevee, and Audino x2, TheShinyLunatone on Braixen, Disaster_Lord on Snorunt, Shine on Pineco, TVDex on Abra, TomoEGoto on Buneary, Dragonheart7 on Treecko, Ponymon on Numel and Trevenant, Azulart on Swablu, *Murkrow on Butterfree, and anyone else I may have missed on your shinies! Also, sorry about that Eevee, xKatie0391, and likewise on Gligar, Siebold. : (

    Thanks to Shy for the good luck wishes!

    Turns out I had more time than I thought this weekend, so I've made some substantial progress on my hunts. Eevee has reached 7700 SRs, Route 7 is at 2000 REs, and Sigilyph is at 270 eggs. I did finally manage to get a perfect 6IV female Sigilyph after 250-some eggs, so I've replaced the mother in the daycare and hopefully the shiny will come out with the right IV spread. Really holding out hope that at least one of my hunts will bear fruit before Friday...

    Good luck to all of you on your hunts, especially eiger, Shy, TheShinyLunatone, ChaoticInverse, Lorde, and above all, TheMaster327 on that elusive Lugia!

    Congrats to TomoEGoto on Skitty and Buneary, CharlieDoryRose on Cyndaquil, Dangertrout on Nidoran (F) and Rattata and Eevee and Audino x2, Storm_Dragoon on Plusle and Minun, 2rsa on Latias, Azulart on Buneary and Swablu, Dragonheart7 on Froakie x2 and Treecko, Shine on Bouffalant and Pineco, eiger on Beldum x4, Iwanuq on Kangaskhan and Tarnquill and Cubchoo, serpent222 on Stunfisk, Fire Hero on Bagon, TheShinyLunatone on Braixen, Disaster_Lord on Snorunt, TVDex on Abra, Ponymon on Numel and Trevenent and *Murkrow on Butterfree.

    Good luck to TheMaster327, Shy, Pluski, Pokemaster13, eiger, Crimson Penguin, Shabadoo, ChaoticInverse and Lorde. Too bad Siebold on Gligar and xKatie0391 on Eevee, good luck reclaiming them.

    So Johto is blue and Kanto is green, I came back with a sparkly sheen. Three days ago on Friday I started my next Badge Quest hunt in Rock Tunnel in the hopes of finding a shiny Cubone/Marowak or Onix, though anything from there would be a nice shiny. So about and hour or two ago I was going back and forth in Rock Tunnel and was only doing a few more encounters before going to bed. However, my Soul Silver said no...
    Badge Quest shiny #10 scrolled across my screen! Funny thing is that Zubat only has a 10% encounter rate in Rock Tunnel. It didn't take much to catch her with only one Super Fang and one Dusk Ball. I might come back to this spot for Onix using the Repel Trick later. Her IVs are 12/2/0/20/29/24 and more pictures: OT/ID, Summary, Full 3DS Shot, Sparkles, Overworld and Video.

    This also means Community Hunt complete x2!

    I think I'm gonna put my heart gold bq aside and...focus on platinum, my platinum cart ejected and I hadn't saved since before gym 1 so I gotta get alll the way back to the windworks! On the bright side, I've found that some hunting and wonder trading is in order on X so I've decided to hunt....whatever I feel like, Binacle and Goomy are on my Kalos hit list so I'm after them! You gents have a good one, don't give up and may you shine in a short amount of time! <3

    i2i Big Bad Wolf

    While hunting for a HA Scyther on route 21 during which encountering dozens of hordes of either Spinda or Swablu for a week now. This Sunday encountering the common Swablu horde just about to run from them is that I notice one on far left side was golden. At first I though i push the run button just like Siebold unfortunately did with Gligar but luckily not for some very grateful reason. So I send in my Mawile to weekend it with False Swipe but not too weak since it knows Take Down which it actually never use some reason that I'm also grateful for. Then, I send in my Gourgeist to use Trick-or-Treat on the Shiny Swablu, then using Explosion to take out the Rest leaving the now part Ghost Shiny Swablu on harm. And finally throwing my Premier Ball for the Catch.

    So Swablu is Adamant nature with Characteristic of Capable of taking hits and has the ability of Nature Cure. My plan now is to send him to ORAS to have register his Mega Shiny form. With that Community Hunt complete.

    Good luck to all future Shiny Hunt and Sorry to Siebold on Gligar could have easily happen to me today.

    Too bad about that Eevee, xKatie0391 :( Good luck reclaiming it! Same for you two, Siebold and ZoRk!

    Thanks for the good luck, umbreonfan3636 and Crimson Penguin :)


    Yay! Yesterday after 7,769 REs on my Black 2 game, and on the 269th RE of the night, I found a Shiny Axew!


    I had just started listening to music with both headphones in (and wasn’t even a minute into the first song), so I didn’t hear the sparkles, but I looked down in time to see the sparkles! I’m slightly amazed that I managed to find one each of Boldore, Aron, and Axew, my three targets from the area, without a duplicate or a Woobat. Of course, I’ll be back here some more anyways in hopes of duplicates of those 3, and I wouldn’t mind a Woobat or two just to have them (though they’re nothing I really want otherwise).

    This one is female, Sassy nature, Very finicky, and has the Mold Breaker ability. Glad she got the Mold Breaker ability over Rivalry, but that Sassy nature lowering speed…However, once again, for a wild pokemon, pretty nice IVs: 21 – 29 – 20 – 29 – 16 – 20. So 29 in attack and 20 in speed…Even with that –Speed nature, given the ability and IVs, I’m guessing this one will end up evolved…I still might wait and hope I find another better one in the future, but that doesn’t seem very likely, so I may just deal with what will ultimately be a 29 point loss in speed and evolve it =\ Perks of not battling competitively :p

    And I already have the video uploaded!

    Anyways, I’m now back at Abundant Shrine, hoping still for a Swablu (maybe if it wants to appear before ORAS…?), a Vulpix, or one more Cottonee. This is also my 26th shiny this year, which ties me with the number of shinies I caught last year. One more and I’ll have found as many as I found last year (that failed Abra…).

    Black 2 is up to 100 REs again, Platinum is at 6,200 REs, and HeartGold is at 3,000 HBs.

    Good luck, everyone (especially markasdarkas, cocoadragon, Shadowkrow, ChaoticInverse, Keane, RaichuArcanine, eiger, pokemaster13, Tina, jrmftw, TheMaster327, and Lunafloon)!

    I just got a shiny Miltank on a horde ^^ Bad thing is, I was EV training for SpAttack and Speed and ended up having to use berries to remove the EVs from the Miltank and the Tauros so I could catch the shiny :p

    I think I never got as many shinies in one game as I'm getting now... I guess the Shiny Charm is helping too.

    In Pokemon Y, I ended up with another shiny Trevenant from a horde. That is two shiny Trevenant in the game that I got in a horde. One is Brave, the other is Sassy. One has Natural Cure and the other has Frisk. What luck that was. I also fished out another shiny Magikarp.

    Well, well, well...

    First a little backstory of how my day went...

    Got up at 9:10am, started hunting at 9:30am. At around 2pm, I'd done 450 SRs. I thought for a minute, and realised that Raikou and Entei were actively roaming, so I was effectively SRing Lugia from a starting frame of 3 (as each active roamer advances the frame by 1. 2 roamers = +2 frames)

    So I decided to KO Raikou, as frame 3 clearly was doing nothing for me. So I was now SRing Lugia on a starting frame of 2. And what should appear on the 549th SR (28,499th total) after KOing Raikou?


    PINK!!! Lugia has a Docile nature. IVs could have been better... 26, 27 / 5, 6 / 7, 8 / 30 / 4, 5 / 0, 1, 2

    But hey, it finally shone :)[/spoil]

    775 Eggs? And I don't have the charm ;-;.

    Everyone shiny dreams are coming true, but because I decided to breed before completing my Dex, look where I am. Still breeding Bagons. But I got a feeling.

    Good news, I caught a shiny Foongus with hidden ability Regenerator in a horde while looking for hidden ability Sudowoodo. The Shiny Foongus came with a Big Mushroom and is Naughty Nature and strong willed. Evolved it to Amoongus.

    When I was younger and playing Emerald I heard about a Black Rayquaza and really wanted one! So I was up for HOURS turning my game on and off, on and off, and so on. Until finally after about the 500th time I got one! I Master Balled the crap out of it! XD THIS is my precious lol.

    Well, looks like my games are giving me the luck of the shinies because... after my recent shiny I went for Zangoose because why the heck not?
    Yeah she's 4IV and doesn't have her HA, but she's shiny and she surprised me. Now I'm working on trying to find a decent Jolly Trapinch to breed with.

    Edit: Two shinies in one day!

    I hatched 30 or so more Magby eggs for my Shiny Magby Masuda Method hunt this afternoon and I also did 70+ soft resets for my Shiny Rayquaza hunt on Ruby version this evening after neglecting to work on it yesterday night. Congratulations to everyone who found/hatched new Shinies by the way.

    I found a shiny Scyther earlier.

    Unfortunately it has a really bad nature (Modest).
