    Was hunting in the FS in my Y for another shiny Eevee and I just caught one. It has relatively superior potential overall. Greatest potential lies in its HP, Sp.Atk is equally good. Stats like those... simply can't be beat. It is male. Run away ability. What should I evolve it into. I already have Flareon, Vaporeon, Leafeon, Slyveon and Umbreon shiny. So out of Espeon, Jolteon and Glaceon which is my best option?? Please help. It has Serious nature

    Here are the ivs.
    #133 Eevee [Serious]
    IVs: 30, 31 / 17, 18, 19 / 14, 15, 16 / 31 / 27, 28, 29 / 0 - 3
    Stats at Lv.30: 82 / 43 / 39 / 41 / 52 / 38

    Congrats to Paraqua on Honedge and Buneary, Azulart on Tyrunt, nickM on Mesprit and Lugia, Nakashima on Vaporeon, Glaceon, Leafeon, Sylveon, Flareon, Jolteon, Espeon and Umbreon, scrufox86 on Kabuto, Cyberra on Gogoat, Ivysaur and Basculin, MurderofKrow on Ho-Oh and Latias, Meowth City on Phantump and Magikarp, Dennis Jansen on Druddigon and Geodude, serpent222 on Registeel and Regice, Shiny Lord on Eevee and everyone else on your shinies :)

    Thanks for the congrats to Crimson Penguin and Supremacy!

    I haven't kept track of my latest hunts, just approximates based on the time I've been hunting them, the Registeel hunt lasted over a week, I'm guessing between 2.5 and 3.5k SR's, I also have the shiny charm equipped in both games. Good luck on your hunt! :)

    Regice shone in OR, I'd say this was a rather quick hunt, luckily I saw/heard the sparkles, otherwise I'm pretty sure I'd have SR it, unlike past gens, I have a harder time telling apart the shiny sprite from the normal one, after leaving it with 1HP and putting it to sleep a bunch of times, I caught it with a Luxury Ball, Regice has Modest nature (sync worked this time) and perfect IV's in Attack, Sp. Attack, Def and Sp. Defense, both HP and Speed are 10-12.

    Now that I have the 3 Regis it's time to hunt Regigigas.
    Still hunting Palkia in AS and Steelix in HG/SS, will keep track of Steelix resuming the count where I left it, so far I've done 4518 RE's, will also keep track of Regigigas and the remaining legendaries in both OR/AS.

    Good luck to everyone on your current hunts! :)

    Well, serious is a neutral nature, so you're left with his strongest stats, which appear to be special attack and special defense. You could do fine with Jolteon or Espeon, but with the lower speed, I'd vote Espeon.

    In my own shiny news, after 70 FS encounters, I also got a shiny Eevee! And two encounters later, I got a shiny dunsparce (my most hated pokemon!) I haven't checked eevee's stats out yet. I have a 5IV shiny eevee already, waiting to be an umbreon. No idea what my second one will become.

    About 400 encounters in a bug safari with no shinies. Trying for a female combee.
  4. ShiningKnightXY

    ShiningKnightXY <----Newest Shiny

    At around 2700 srs my Azelf shined. While it is Lax nature as opposed to my Naive syncher, I would much rather keep it since it has 4 perfect IVS in Hp, Atk, Def, and Sp. Atk. I named it Navi after the iconic pest from Zelda being they are both Blue and annoying. I may go for Uxoe next, but for now I wamt to try some chaining out in ORAS.

    CH complete since Azelf can learn trick.

    Regice finally shone today after almost a week of SRing. Synchronizer actually worked too, so I'm pretty happy! :D 11131968_1125699514123267_259304390_o.jpg

    Now I'm off to SR for a shiny Regigigas.

    Congratulations to everyone else on their shinies and good luck to those hunting!

    Congrats to maskofsanity1998 on Mudkip, Shine on Registeel, BritishLanguage on Gligar, Cyberra on Cottonee and Heatmor, taufik386 on Oshawott and Mime Jr, HM02gon on Goomy, wobbanut on Zangoose, Gurgurr and Ditto, Keovix on Banette, Registeel and Regice, Ponymon on Chimchar, NitroLightningFlash on Latios, Shiny Lord on Rotom, Samus-Aran on Regigigas, Paraqua on both Honedge, AceTrainerBen on Ralts, Azulart on Tyrunt, nickM on Mespirit and Lugia, Nakashima on Eevee, Scrufox86 on Kabuto, serpent222 on Registeel and Regice, ShiningKnightXY on Azelf, razor fire on Regice and everyone else on your shinies.

    Thanks to Twilit Dragoon, Keovix, Supremacy and Crimson Penguin for the congrats.

    I've been complaining a bit about my Omega Ruby for over odds and multi-phase hunts just lately but I have nothing to moan about now as a shiny Bagon has appeared after 5522 REs.


    Yes it's another over odds hunt but it's also my main target on the first phase and anyway 5k isn't really much considering the 11k I've already been to on this file. I'm absolutely delighted with this shiny, as I said it was my main target but it also has an excellent nature (lonely) and is male which meant the name I had picked out for it was suitable. Salamence is a really nice shiny and I used a regular one in my first team in Ruby years and years ago so it holds a bit of nostalgia for me too.

    Next in this game I'm going to do a hunt that I've not really seen anyone do (but I know they aren't locked because I've seen people get random ones) and that is the gift Camerupt and Sharpedo that the Rocket and Aqua grunts give you at the Battle Resort. Whichever one doesn't shine I'll hunt at a later date in my AS. First though it's back to my Heart Gold BQ for Sudowoodo. Here's hoping that I can finally get something under odds in this game, or at least under 10k.

    Good luck hunting everyone :)
  7. Mewtwo Ex

    Mewtwo Ex Meddling your D.N.A

    So when i started this hunt i wanted a special attacker to be next to my 3-rd Gen adamant one...

    I got Shiny Mewtwo.

    ivs are:

    HP - 10
    Attack - 6/7
    Defense - 0/1
    Sp. Attack 8/9
    Sp Defense 28
    Speed - 15

    Good luck on your hunts people.

    ORAS seems to have really quick hunts. Back in my day, it'd take 8191 if you were lucky!

    Oh, and I must know-other than sparkle sparkle, how were you able to tell difference between shiny and regular Regice?

    serpent222 Well-Known Member

    I wasn't able to tell the difference. I made sure to be watching it every time.

    I spent most of Monday morning and part of yesterday afternoon doing more horde encounters in Y version: I did at least 90 encounters in total, but found no Shinies. I also worked on my Shiny Rayquaza hunt this morning and did 45 or so SRs. Anyway, congrats to others on their new Shinies. :)

    Shiny eevee strikes again in FS! 2nd in one day! This time it is female. Timid nature with adaptability as the ability. Takes plenty of siestas. IVs are as follows HP 30-31, Atk 4-6, Defense 24-26, Sp.atk 14-16, Sp.def 10-13, Speed 30-31. This would be perfect for Jolteon correct?

    I think Jolteon would be the best fit for those stats!

    As for me, still a no-go with Snivy however I've been playing the Rumble world game that came out today and I've spent a lot of time playing that all day. I have managed to collect 60 eggs, planning on collecting 60 more eggs between now and Friday.
    Once I do my exam I think I'm going to go and SR hunt Suicune a bit. I've been at 1,000 for a few month and I want to get anywhere between 1.2 and 1.5 in the next coming weeks.
    Just needed a new hunt after all these snivy.. Hopefully WTW will be good to me.

    I've participated in three the passed month and a half. I've received a Shiny 6IV Turtwig, 6IV Shiny Terrakion, 6IV shiny Politoad, and a for sure hacked 6iv shiny Moltres. Also a perfect 5iv non shiny Keldeo and Terrakion!

    edit: Neat! Page 1,000! Congrats to the thread and shiny hunting members for making it what it is! (I have a post on the 1st and 1,000th page - woo!)
    Thank you, Crimson Penguin for the luck!

    Been a while since I posted so congrats to everyone on their recent shinies!

    Well it took me almost 700 eggs (I lost track of the exact number) but I finally hatched my shiny Torchic!! Jolly nature, Speed Boost, 4IV- he's missing SpD and Speed but I'm just excited that he shined! The IVs he's got are just a bonus.

    Next shiny hunt: Kangaskhan!

    Cyberra pain in the ***

    Was doing some idle chain fishing at the Parfum Palace in Y to kill time, looking for corphish. After a chain of 52 I found a shiny goldeen. He's now somewhere in the wonder trade system.

    Terrakion is at 9,100 SRs and Charmander at 310 eggs... I didn't have much time to hunt today

    I didn’t do much hunting over the weekend…Too busy! I did end up doing 600 REs and 500 SRs today though. I was really hoping to get Dialga today, since April 8th last year was when I finally found my shiny Giratina (after 28k SRs). Hoping to find a nice birthday shiny tomorrow. Not that I care much about my birthday, but it’s an excuse to hope more for a shiny :p Right now Black 2 is at 2,400 REs, HeartGold is at 3,500 HBs, and Platinum is at 3,500 SRs.

    Good luck, everyone (especially markasdarkas, RaichuArcanine, pokemaster13, Tina, jrmftw, Lorde, Keane, Shy, Ruru_star, Roseheart95, skilax1234, Cyberra, Nakashima, Supremacy, and Lunafloon)!

    Nibbles4Ever 1 more day ^^

    While training yesterday in my Y wedlock I found and caught a shiny male Pawniard. I named him Peanut since i'm naming my pokemon after food. Man i've been having such good luck finding shinies on 6th gen. I've so far caught 5, not on 1 play through though.

    Vale_Star Shiny Huntress

    What Friend Code gave you the Eevee safari Shiny Lord? I haven't reached that point in my second X game yet and I've wanted to find a Shiny Eevee for as long as I can remember. I have my Shiny Bucket list and so far I've only been able to cross the Dusclops off it. Also on my bucket list is a Shiny Dragonair, I want a pretty pink Dragonair. I just never finished White Tree Hollow to get it.

    CreeperNinjaGamer Warlord of Shinies

    Hey all, I was thinking about starting a Y BQ, but I have a question: Does your first shiny have to be your starter? Because it takes forever to SR starters in 6th gen.
  20. Aesnath

    Aesnath But Nothing Happened

    So, first off congrats those who have been successful (especially Mewtwo Ex, Shiny Lord, RedJirachi, Razorbadger, razor fire, and Shining KnightXY) and good luck to those still searching (oarfish, the Master 327, and...ohjeezitskim--again!).

    It is with great bitterness that I am writing this post. While I captured a shiny zubat when leveling up my competitive phanpy/donophan last week, that’s not what I want to talk about. Missed shiny support group, gather round for my tale of woe.

    Last night I was SRing Lugia. I haven’t been doing it long (under 200 SRs total) and it was mostly just a nighttime distraction before I went to sleep. Well, sure enough, the shiny appears. I was pretty jazzed, but I realized I hadn’t done my homework on the encounter. A quick run to the internet revealed that Lugia has 20(!) PP total at level 50. So I get to work with my hunter smeargle (named pinkerton) while keeping count of moves used. I have this irrational desire to fit the Lugia into a heal ball, and then start using better capture rate balls as we go along, with a master ball in tow if I need it.

    Things start of pretty well, but the Lugia isn’t staying in the ball. Pressure eats away my 16 Dark Voids pretty quickly and then, a crit on a rain danced hydropump kills the hunter. Think, “OK, let’s put it back to sleep” I switch to an Amongus I carried along. However, I realize that the move punishment makes contact, which could activate the amongus’ effect spore for poison or burn, killing the Lugia. I panic a bit and switch to my synchronizer, not thinking about how this is wasting a turn effectively. After it dies, I switch into another poke, without a sleep effect and max revive and max ether the smeargle. Now, after I switch to the smeargle, Lugia will have 4…moves…left. So I know I’m going to have to make the decision about what ball to put it in and whether or not to just use the dang master ball.

    At this point, I’m upset with myself for taking extra moves switching into amongus then the synchronizer, I’m worried about possibly losing the Lugia, I’m conflicted about what ball to start using, and, frankly, I’m a bit sleepy. I go to switch to the smeargle, and, in my haste, I RUN AWAY.

    Overall, I’m pretty upset. I legitimately lost sleep over it last night, and I’m not sure what I’m going to about the situation, either double down on catching the pink S-O-B or take a break from pokemon. I really cannot remember being this angry with a game in my adult life. Another problem is that pokemon is kind of a special game for me compared to the other games in my life. Unlike other games I enjoy (i.e. Dark Souls, Mario games, the occasional retro action game) I play pokemon to relax. I’m not sure if that’s possible currently. Moreover, my family is kind of invested in playing the games with me, and I don’t want to give up on that. So we’ll see how it goes.

    Thanks for listening.

    tl;dr: I ran away from a shiny Lugia last night and am upset about it.
