I'm in a shiny drought, you guys. ;_; It's been one month since I got Charmander, and despite my best efforts, nothing seems to want to show up. Lugia is at 2200 SRs, Bulbasaur is at 2700 SRs, Granite Cave is at 5000 REs, Castelia Park is at 2600 REs, and Deino is at 390 eggs. Just gotta keep plugging along I suppose.

A small update on Lugia: I realized that a Lugia with a +Speed nature and high Speed IVs could outspeed my Smeargle, so I went and bought an X Speed along with a few X Sp. Defs to beef up Smeargle for the fight. (Most of the Lugia I've battled in test runs ended up having really bad Sp. Atk stats, so I wanted to ensure Smeargle can take attacks from a stronger one.) After those preparations, I did a couple more trial runs, which have been pretty intense, but I've only had to use the Master Ball once out of maybe 5 or 6 runs total. So I'm still cautiously optimistic about catching the shiny once it appears. : D

Good luck to all of you on your hunts!

So my 10 year old sister has started playing pokemon so I thought I would show her what a shiny is just incase she runs into one!
I showed her my Zizagoon and explained they where very rare but if she did a horde encounter it increases the chances a little I did not go into depth obviously aha
so I sent my shiny into a horde battle so she could see the sparkles I did it one more time just so she got it and......

She now really wants a shiny so I have done about 250 horde encounters since even doubled up with her DS to try find her one! so I am basically hunting the two shines I have unless somehow Wingal comes up.

Just caught a shiny Pikachu in Oras via Dex Nav. It is female and has Lightning Rod Ability.(Hidden ability) It has a Bashful nature. It's stats are HP 6-7, Attack 15-16, Defense 4-5, Sp. Atk 31, Sp.Def 31, Speed 31. So so excited when it shone because it had the three stars and obviously hidden ability is a plus.
 
Two shinies in one day! Talk about good luck. Posted earlier that i got a shiny Nincada out of a horde, and then about 150 hordes later i get a shiny Electrike! Good night indeed.

So happy! I caught my favourite Pokemon, Growlithe, in Friend Safari and it's a female too :3

It's #058 in the Pokedex, so that means Community Hunt complete!

Well I just got very lucky and received a Japanese female Chikorita hatched in a Nest Ball! :D She has IVs 31/X/31/31/31/31 and moves leech seed, counter, grassy terrain and leaf storm. She is perfect to breed into a shiny! I've been after a Johto starter in a ball other than standard for a long time, so I'm really excited to hatch this shiny. She came with docile nature, but I'm going to breed her with a Timid nature. Hope it doesn't take too long to shine :)

Well I've been a couple of weeks on Route 20 in my White 2 now and have nothing to show for it so far having done just under 14,300 REs. I'm hoping something shines before double odds now and I'm also constantly worrying that I'm going to miss a shiny Sunkern if I find one so I'm having to make sure to pay attention for sparkles.

Good luck hunting everyone :)

My mewtwo hunt sits at 3640 sr's and my Registeel hunt sits at 1005. I hope one of them shines soon, but I'm preparing for the worst!

Well, after a REALLY long hiatus from Omega Ruby (Puzzles and Dragons Z for the win!), I decided to Wonder Trade off some unwanted MM fails. I ended up scoring a shiny Staraptor (Was a bit cautious about it at first since it was LV. 100 and used to have Pokerus, but it says it was hatched back in June after getting the egg from the breeder at the Battle Resort, so I guess it's legit) AND a shiny Japanese Venusaur (female, Lv. 36, was hatched)!
 
YES! Finally! Shiny Treecko!!! 128 eggs and I got one out of the batch of Treecko, Mudkip and Goomy eggs i've been breeding. The feeling is over 9000.

After 1,356 REs in the rock safari, exactly what I wanted shined ^_^ She's hardy and likes to thrash about, with Rock Head, and has both of her best stats maxed :D I could train her to be a powerful attacker. Have the evolution item; now I just need a trade partner ^_^

Next FS hunt will be water, I think, after azumarill and panpour.

Regigigas is at 4,400 SRs. Eevee is at 750 eggs.

Congrats to all recent shinies

I was dex-naving for Zorua and after 30 - 45 minutes, a shiny Zorua showed up. It's a male with 3 perfect IV's (HP, DEF and Sp. DEF) I named him Loki xD

Good luck to all future shinies

I got to 111 Shellder eggs and started to fret. Having not played my X save for about a year before I recently got back into it again, I had failed to check what nationality my breeding Ditto was... It was English, so therefore, I wasn't even utilising the Masuda Method. X___X

The only reason the MMing for my Shiny Growlithe worked was because that was German. As that was what I had left in the Daycare over a year ago, I assumed the Ditto was foreign and the Growlithe was English yet it was the other way around!

The time wasn't wasted though as I now have lots of 4EM, perfect IV Shellder to trade. I just also need to find a foreign Ditto with good IVs...

Congrats to all of those who have found shinies as of late. Don't make the same mistake as me after coming back to a save after so long!

Lol i've made the same mistake using my EV ditto instead of my MM ditto. That's nerve-wracking but a little funny at the same time :p. Good luck on the Shellder. Always liked its gold color scheme.
Congrats to others who got their shinies as well, i'm trying for a Goomy as of now.

Well, after only ~350 eggs, this just happened.....!!

So damn happy about this one!!! :D Shame about the missing IVs in defense and speed, but the fact he has hatched in a NEST BALL more than compensates for that!

Good luck to FairyWitch! I hope that Klefki shines soon!
