Official New and Improved General Shiny Thread

Well, I FINALLY found another Shiny on Omega Ruby. I managed to Chain Fish myself up a nice Shiny Feebas on Route 119. (That little trick where fishing under the bridge during the day gets you a 100% Feebas encounter rate REALLY helped.) It is now a beautiful Shiny Milotic. :3

Now if Ho-oh will shine for me, that'd be just ducky.

All I can say is that I am very indecisive with my SR hunts. I have now moved to Reshiram and have passed about 700-800 resets since last night. I hope this doesn't pass the odds, but, if it does, Heatran was quick anyways so this may just repay all the time I was spared. Sorry I almost always blanket congrats, but I just cannot remember all completed hunts. Good luck to all on your hunts.

Havent posted in a couple weeks so just wanted drop an update. Latios is sitting at 710 sr's in OR.....i still have a small shred of hope that it'll shine before 1k, but its my fav legend and it comes with a guaranteed nature so its too good of an opportunity to give up on. So i probably wont post again until i have something tangible.

I will be following the thread though, so good luck on all current hunts and congratz on all recent shinies!!!!



@tomatohater: couldnt figure out the quote system, but to answer your question yes i am using a timid synch, it works 100% with gift lati@s. i've done 700+ sr's and they have all been timid except the couple that i got where i didnt lead with synch to make sure iv's were changing. I've also seen this confirmed by others so dnt forget your synch when you start :).

Guaranteed? Are you just using a synchroniser? If so, they only have a 50% chance of passing on the desired nature.

Had to use my master ball which I am not happy about, but I had no choice as he was destroying my team.

Congrats to all on your recent shinies and good luck on your hunts!

it shone! ^_^
Oh wow. There's been so many new ORAS shinies here since I last posted...

... but none for me yet. :p

I'm still SR'ing for my shiny Treecko in AS. I'm currently at around 1600 SR for it.

Congrats on all the new shinies. ^_^

Currently trying to figure out how to properly set up for a shiny flawless/near flawless Swablu.... it won't be as hard to get the perfect parents since the DexNav is a thing, but the shiny odds..... I can't possibly afford to trade a flawless foreign parent so MM is out of the question, and I don't have the shiny charm.....

Will I be able to endure an egg hunt of 1/4096 shiny odds? I wonder....

After 14hrs of non-stop SF I finally managed to catch a Shiny Timid Reshiram with decent IVs in speed and max Sp.Atk and HP.
I say it was relatively decent for my first shiny hunt involving Soft Resetting.

Day 5. Today was not a good day. Tornadus still eludes me...

Another 16 hours of senseless button mashing...

I still have will to go on... however its slipping through my fingers...

This afternoon I did around 50 soft resets for my Shiny Rayquaza SR hunt on Ruby version, which I also plan on working on more later tonight. I also hatched around 40 more Magby eggs for my Masuda Method Shiny hunt last night, which was fab. Congrats to others and good luck to everyone else on their hunts too.

Alright! After 263 soft resets, I have gotten a Shiny Mudkip! So, Community Hunt complete, and my first Pokemon for my Badge Quest in ORAS is done!

I got my first Omega Ruby shiny yesterday morning, a shiny Oddish after a 44 DexNav chain. Worried that I've already cashed in all my luck though, as I'm currently in a 122 chain for a Skarmory with nothing :(

Congrats to everyone on their shines! I just started a badgequest on my OR currently 465 SRs in for torchic. I hope it shines soon. Good luck to those hunting!

Thanks for the congrats, guys :)

Sorry to hear about your pets, Prince of May. Hope things get better for you soon :)

Whismur's IVs are 16, 17 / 27 / 10 / 2 / 13 / 8

Sp. Atk is lacking, so trying to stick some EVs in there to boost Boomburst when it gets it... It's going to be 252 Attack, 200 HP, 56 Sp. Atk.

So,

With the heightened odds for SR shinies in ORAS I most certainly want to start a badgequest - only I want to do something hard to give me perspective before I try for the easier ones in Omega Ruby

So I'm SR for a shiny Spirittomb in Pearl. Wish me luck!

(I've got my breeding goals on hold for the moment while I do this.)

I've also gotten a shiny Drowzee and Driftblim in FS since my last post ;)

^ Congrats Shinehollow, on your first RE Shiny. ^^

Well I just ran into my 3rd ORAS Shiny, unintentionally, while EV training my Beautifly & Swablu.

Shiny Spinda. I do have one from Y, but since they're all uniquely-spotted, it's not all that bad. Wasn't too surprised when she appeared but I'm happy I found her regardless. Any native Hoenn-born Shinies are welcomed here, lol!

She was leveled up a lil bit here

Mild Nature, female, and Thoroughly Cunning. I named her Holly after obviously, Christmas, that is coming up and she's a green color...maybe yellowish-green but whatever.

All of my shinies in ORAS so far have been female......

~ Good Luck everyone! ~

Congratulations everyone on their latest shinies! :D

You can argue all you want with me, I think trips at grandma's are the best way to hunt shinies! The hour-long car trip twice a day as well as the time not doing anything there is so helpful!

About 15 hours deep into my Cresselia hunt, and since I do about 1,5 SRs per minute, then that makes around 1350 SRs (and I'm pretty sure it's more than that; I was really concentrated yesterday). Already ? Time flies so fast! I didn't even see those go! Hoping to get this hunt done with soon enough, though. I've got so many things to do; I even prepared myself for my Buneary MM hunt in Diamond (which I'm excited for a lot).

... plus, I really need something comforting right now... My dog died this morning... She had a sort of heart tumor or something... Can't really tell right now; my mother was too broken to speak clearly... I don't like when mom cries. :( And it's difficult not to cry. I have this big... ball in my throat since like 2 AM...
And at the beginning of the week I lost my precious cat, too! It's starting to be hard on the heart. I just need something to get my mind off of this... And I think a shiny gives a lot of hope. It did, not even a year ago, when I reclaimed my shiny Kyogre after my dear Cosmo died.

Good luck to everyone!

Hey, I'm really sorry to hear about your dog and cat. It's always hard when you lose a pet. Just remember all the good times you had with them, and the good life you gave them... and, in the case of your dog, try to find solace in the fact that she's not in pain anymore?
I'm sorry if I'm terrible with condolences. =\ I hope you're able to find a shiny very soon, though.


Currently trying to figure out how to properly set up for a shiny flawless/near flawless Swablu.... it won't be as hard to get the perfect parents since the DexNav is a thing, but the shiny odds.....

I might be misinterpreting this, but if you need a flawless foreign parent for MMing I can easily breed one for you. I have everything I need so I'd trade it to you for basically nothing.

A few days ago I started doing a Shiny Snivy hunt using the Masuda Method. I've hatched 330 eggs so far. I hope it shines soon. :) Hopefully before Christmas.

And congrats to anyone on recent shinies and good luck to those still hunting. :)
