Official New and Improved General Shiny Thread


Mage of Void
I am currently at 200 SR's for shiny Registeel in ORAS.
It's the only method in which I haven't obtained a shiny and hopefully that'll change.

Out of curiosity, what seems to be about the average amount of SR's without the Shiny Charm?
I know it depends on luck, but I was just wondering.


Shiny Hunter
Hey guys! I just beat the elite 4 this morning on my OR game from doing my BQ! I plan on skipping the delta episode on there for now and going straight to SRing Reshiram. I hope I get it quickly! :)

Happy hunting everyone!

Oh and do we have a CH yet for January?

EDIT: OMG guys! I literally MAYBE have done 30-50 SRs and got my shiny Reshiram!!!!! It is a Calm nature (-Atk, +Sp Def) with perfect IV's in HP, Atk, and Sp Def!!!! I have NEVER had a SR hunt go so quick! Well... off to EV train! :)

I just got another shiny without looking for it :D

I was trying to hatch a female Combee in order to evolve it for my living dex. But, after only 5 eggs... a Shiny Combee hatched!

It was still male, though :p
Got this beauty today for a Medicham on the GTS! [IMG200]http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2015/003/a/d/_squees__by_transdonald-d8cg6j7.jpg[/IMG200] Can't wait to check IV's and crap!


Mage of Void
I'm going to stop at 420 SR's for right now and a collective total of about 3 hours. Hopefully Registeel will shine soon!


First off, congrats to others on the new Shinies. Last night I did another 65 soft resets for my Shiny Reshiram hunt. I also hatched another 20 Magby eggs for my Masuda Method hunt and I barely did 50 soft resets for my Shiny Rayquaza hunt this morning. Good luck to everyone else.


Completing The Trio
Another good hunt today, wrapping up the EV training of my Shiny Feebas(now a Shiny Milotic), and i found 2 new shinies;



I'm still finishing what is left of my EV training of Shiny Milotic, and am currently using the DexNav to chain Misdreavus. Should the chain require me to run around to reset, i'll just start over rather than the usual method of keeping the chain going, since i only care about EV training and not the IV's/ability/moveset of a potential Shiny Misdreavus appearing.

Unlucky Dragon!
I was going around the area running some errands, when I actually was lucky enough to get the Eon Ticket. I'm going take a break from a Swablu hunt to get this Shiny Latias.

I was breeding for some competitive Lotad late last night and was lucky enough to get a shiny Lotad after about 15 eggs. Brings my shiny total to six. 4 caught, 1 bred, and 1 promo giveaway.


Useless Sceptile
It was a brief hunt, as shiny Swablu swoops in. That would be community hunt complete, but it's January now. I know it's late, but we haven't decided on a January CH yet.
Shiny Swablu appeared on the 184th egg, very quick. Female, Impish with perfect Attack, Defense and Speed.

At 1500 for a gold-plated Reshiram. My plan is to SR 600 times from Monday to Thursday this week, and because of more important and upcoming events SR 600 times on Monday and Tuesday. Going well, I'll have SR'd 2400 times next week, and should have an average of SRing 1200 per week. I will keep this strategy for all the shinies. After Reshiram, I'm going after Regirock. Tell me, with the increased chances in Gen VI, what's the average amount of SRs before getting their shiny?
Congrats to all of you that have found a shiny pokemon and good luck to the ones that are hunting
I'm currently soft reseting for a shiny tepig in black 2

And also to all you people who soft reset,do you have the shiny charm or not?

And again good luck on your hunts!:)


Everything stays.
Congratulations on the latest shinies, guys!

Alright, so I didn't hunt as much as I wanted to today. I managed to hatch 150 more eggs for my Buneary MM hunt in Diamond, which brings my total to 750 eggs hatched. Let's see where this drags me! Hopefully it will shine soon. If it goes well, I might as well try to hatch a shiny Ralts on Diamond, too! Kirlia's DP sprite is so amazing, especially in shiny form. <3

I don't feel like hunting for Cresselia right now so I'll start collecting another batch of eggs tonight.

Good luck everyone!

<----Newest Shiny
I personally got my shiny charm first for somewhat quicker hunts seeing how I never did well with full odds, but there are definitely people here who would rather hunt without the charm to save time on collecting all the Pokemon. Really it is all a matter of picking your poison, do you use your time to get the charm, or do you hunt without the charm to save time on getting it.

Anyways, I am still no farther in my SR hunt as I have been pre-occupied with the Kingdom Hearts remakes and Hyrule Warriors, but I do plan to pick it back up tonight.

Good luck to those in hunts, especially those whose hunts' odds have overstayed their welcome, and congrats to all the recent shinies.

;377;Congrats to all the recent shinies. After I didn't get a New Year's Eve shiny or a New Year's Day shiny, I really wanted Regirock to shine before winter break ended on the fifth. So I was just doing some late night SRing, watching some shofu, and a magnificent chocolate Regirock graced my screen! I caught it with reasonable ease:

#377 Regirock [Careful]
IVs: 24 / 9 / 31 / 31 / 14 / 31
Stats at Lv.40: 123|0 / 88|0 / 177|0 / 51|0 / 99|0 / 57|0

Happy that my Careful synch worked, and that I got it before school started again. Kinda sucks that one of the 31s was wasted on spatt instead of spdef, or even att, but I can't really complain; it's a great shiny!
Now I'm not sure what to SR for... I think I'll take a little break, maybe get around to catching Deoxys, before I decide, but right now it's between Registeel, Ho-oh, or Reshiram.
Anyways, good luck to everyone! ;377;
Edit: Caught Deoxys and decided that I'm going for Registeel!

This is my first post here, so I'll go ahead and post all of the Shiny Pokemon I have found, in order:

Pachirisu (found on a chain of 8 in Pearl)
Gyarados x2 (from playing through Heartgold twice)
Shinx (chain of 40 in Platinum, evolved into Luxray)
Corsola (chain of 40 in Platinum)
Voltorb (chain of 12 in Platinum, evolved into Electrode)
Psyduck (randomly encountered while surfing in Ravaged Path)
Tentacruel (gift from my friend)
Vulpix x2 (chain of 40 in Platinum; evolved one into Ninetales)
Skitty x3 (chain of 40 in Platinum, evolved one into Delcatty)
Doduo (randomly encountered on the route west of Viridian in Heartgold the other day, evolved into Dodrio)

Right now, I really would like to find Zangoose, Litwick, Spoink, Pinsir, Seviper, Chimecho, or Growlithe. May SR for Treecko, Mewtwo, or Kyogre as well.
