    Yay, after a chain of 41, a blue Moocow popped up on my X!


    It's Mild, which is horrid, but at least it doesn't hinder Attack or Speed, which is good. It's IVs: 6 - 9 / 8 - 11 / 18 - 21 / 31 / 25, 27 / 31. Typical. If Miltank was a Special Attacker, I'd be set!

    I found (and caught) my first shiny in Alpha Sapphire! I was looking for a Staryu in Liycove City and found a shiny Wailmer instead. It was totally cool

    That was me. It was 7,029 eggs for roggenrola. Another hunter went over 8,000 for tauros.

    Currently my hunts are sitting at 865 REs in the safari in the second phase for dedenne and 100 heracross eggs hatched. I was messing around in minecraft today so I wasn't hunting. Have not gone back to Diamond's Solaceon Ruins yet.

    Congrats to: Creyk on Murkrow, Ambri on Zubat and Magikarp, Cyberra on Eevee, darkpaladin2015 on Ho-Oh, Paraqua on Elekid x2 and Aron, TheMaster327 on Miltank, stardog-champ on Wailmer, taufik386 on Registeel, Goomy, Zorua and Trubbish, and to anyone else I missed!

    I managed to push through 2600 REs in Castelia over the weekend, and hopefully I'll be able to bring it up to 3k tonight. I haven't touched either of my other hunts, and I only really have tomorrow night free as Wednesday and Thursday I'm busy both nights to the point where I probably won't touch my games. I'm not really having a great time at the moment, my school days are really long, the buses in my area recently switched companies so travel is becoming expensive and a pain, and I've just started another 7 week term... I only do 4 subjects, why has it got so much worse after I used to do 12?

    Anyway, good luck everybody, especially CpChris and Razorbadger.

    So I switched my Alpha Sapphire hunt from Lotad to Absol, and that paid off rather quickly; welcoming Eclipse to the family. After, I decided to go after Cobalion, and was surprised when it took less than 100 resets, so greetings to Cobalt.
    At this time, I've postponed my Growlithe hunt, and am almost 1170 fossil-restorations into my new hunt for Omanyte (praise Helix).
    Still no luck on Palkia though. Hoping that hunt will be over soon.
    I did start a Platinum hunt this week though. If successful, Piplup will be my first ever shiny starter.

    Congrats to all those who've had successful hunts recently, and good luck to the rest who are working towards their current objectives!

    Just found out that Japan is to get a shiny Tyranitar event starting November 7th!! And they just got Shiny Xerneas(Oct 29th) and Shiny Yevetial(next week) Ugh!! Not impressed!!!
  9. Cyberra

    Cyberra pain in the ***

    It's so not fair that Japan gets all these events and we don't. How do they justify ticking off so much of the fanbase by making these events, like the shiny xerneas and yveltal, Japan-only? And "because it started in Japan" does not cut it.


    After 1,304 REs into the second phase of the hunt, I get a black manectric. He's adamant and takes plenty of siestas, with Static. I have a shiny manectric that I caught as an electrike from a horde, so into wonder trade he goes.

    Heracross is at 320 eggs. Shiny alphabet hunt is at 400 REs

    Edit: Second shiny manectric after 1,369 REs. This one is female, sassy and takes plenty of siestas, with Lightning Rod. Again, sending her into wonder trade.

    Congrats to TheMaster327 with Eevee and Miltank, Creyk on Murkrow, Ambri on Zubat and Magikarp, darkpaladin2015 on Ho-Oh, Para stardog-champ on Wailmer, taufik386 on Registeel, Goomy, Zorua and Trubbish, Cyberra with Eevee and Manectric x2 and to anyone else I missed!

    My latest Masuda hunt was another succes. After just 152 eggs, a shiny Sableye hatched. It's a female which I named Marceline, is Calm nature through everstone, has the ability Stall and has perfect IV's in HP, ATK, DEF, Sp. Def and Speed.

    Good luck to all future shinies

    We haven't even been told for sure whether they're coming over, hold your horses about complaining about Japan's abundance of shiny events.

    Besides, why get an event shiny Tyranitar when you can MM / RE for it yourself? I'm more annoyed at the silly amount of shinies they're giving away. If Xerneas / Yveltal do make it over here, people won't want to hunt for them even if they're not shiny-locked in the next games. Why? They'll probably have them already from the event. The Tyranitar event annoys me in that sense even more, but as I said, the event hasn't reached the rest of the world yet.

    I'd say it's a bummer for them over in Japan to have ruined certain shinies by making them available without much work or effort at all ;P

    My thoughts exactly, shiny tyranitar is not that special and there is no reason to complain about it. Plus, pokemon is more welcome in japan and very known ( check out those weird events lol ) I understand why they give more rewards out there, to me it seems very logical.

    Anyway, I'm currently at 67 eggs on zubat, no shiny yet. Hope it will shine soon !

    Good luck fellow hunters.

    Chained a shiny Primeape in Platinum. Lost the first chain on 37, much to my chagrin, but rebounded and got to 40 right after. Lotad, a target I've had for a while, is next.

    Very sure I already said this yesterday, looks like I didn't ._.

    Well, for this month's CH, there were some votes for all 4 options, however, currently the top spot is being held by 2 options, sharing the same amount of votes.

    So I'm still waiting for a bit more votes, hopefully by the 5th tomorrow, we can start the CH.

    The top 2 are:

    The shiny tyranitar event I don't give a hoot about; I bred one out myself a while back. But slaggit I want that shiny yveltal!


    After 528 eggs I get my first pink heracross.


    She's adamant and alert to sounds, with Guts. Name will probably be changed later, though. I promised one to Artnerd as well so I'm still hatching heracross eggs looking for another pink one.

    Heracross #2 is at 570 eggs. Shiny alphabet hunt is at 900 REs.

    congrats on all the shinies guys! i look at all your post and feel so inspired!!
    do shinies even exist via MM without a shiny charm?
    717 eggs and nada (although i like to tell myself that each one looks like a slightly diffrent shade and thus they are slowly evolving into a shiny :p )
    grand total of 1912 eggs, and the shiny evades me....
    so booty. this means my badge quest is not moving. 14 hours logged on this hunt alone... and someone did a bq in one weak ?! witchcraft i say,

    So yesterday afternoon I began my Shiny Wooper Masuda Method hunt in Diamond version and hatched 20 eggs so far. I'll work on it more tonight since I'm currently doing more soft resets for a Shiny Sudowoodo as well and consecutive fishing on Y. Good luck to everyone else on their Shiny hunts btw.
