does anyone else find it annoying when youtubers do clearly fake reactions for a shiny thsat often involve alot of bellowing?
Very much yes. I’ve never cared for it. And agreed with others who say they stop watching a vid once they hear some obnoxious fake reaction. I don’t really understand people who watch videos mainly for the reaction, either… Different strokes I guess, but I’m watching to see a shiny on your screen. Also, when people apologize for not having a good enough reaction and saying they’ll do better next time, like…Are you not just admitting you fake reactions? Idk. People are people.

BUT i'm thinking that instead of collecting the eggs, getting however many boxes worth of them, that i should just soft reset when the Daycare gives me an egg, just so i don't have to release boxes of Buneary at a time. Is it more easier that way?
I believe the first egg is always the same if you’re saving right before you collect it, so that would be a bad idea.

-----------

On that topic of videos, Here’s my Horsea video!

Welp, Black 2 has become my 2nd-longest hunt and currently stands at 30,100 REs. Platinum is at 6,600 REs and HeartGold is at 1,000 REs. Also finished training Kingdra to Lv. 100.

Good luck, everyone (especially markasdarkas, RaichuArcanine, pokemaster13, Tina, jrmftw, Shy, Ruru_star, skilax1234, ChaoticInverse, Pluski, ElectricBassClef, Razorbadger, Keane, Crimson Penguin, and Nakashima)!

CH completion list updated - we have a kinda quiet CH this time, eh? The one time it's about birds, and people kept getting non-bird shinies xD




As for the video topic, what annoyed me is when someone found a wild encounter shiny, then do a long happy reaction before finally getting back on the game and start trying to capture it.
I'm happy to see someone found a shiny, but I'm happier to see they actually caught it.

Also, I tend to avoid the Shiny Fail video. I don't know about you all, but to me, a shiny fail isn't worth watching, and is not even worth recording. It annoyed me instead, why didn't you come prepared if you are shiny hunting? I can understand failing on an accidental shiny, but when you actually hunt for it, I feel there's no excuse to fail.

Hi everyone!

Gosh, it's been a long time!

Congrats to all of the above posters on their success! And best of luck to all those still MMing/searching!

Myself, I haven't really had the time for MMing lately. Interest in breeding is minimum. But that's not why i'm here :p

A friend over PSS asked me for a HA Amoongus. I only had the one I was using in battling so threw it into the daycare with Jap ditto. I wasn't even trying honest. But on the first egg

BAM! got a shiny! haha. Was over the moon. When it hatched, I thought it looked funny. I didn't dare think shiny, but it was!

Never had a first egg hatch, so took it to the IV judge!

It's Outstanding with IV's in HP, Defence, Special Attack and Speed. Was like, meh I'll still use it.
Until I realised that it didn't have it's HA :( lol

Trophy shiny only, meh! Haven't the time to actively hunt another :/

Till next time :)

I'm at 900 eggs with my shiny treecko hunt. This is my first MM run and I was patient but the few last dozens I've been kinda losing hope, tho I know I'm closer than ever. But I've run out of space in boxes and I don't have pokebank yet... I don't have the shiny charm either. Sigh any inspirational words? I believe I'm only doubting cuz as it is my first time, I don't have the 100% personal trust in the method. Congrats everyone for their shinies I'm planning on becoming a great shiny hunter!

Hey everyone, and congrats on all the shiny pokes!

So I've been in somewhat of a shiny drought and stopped playing for a bit, but decided to pick up my hunt in Pokemon X and got a Shiny Klefki last night in the friend safari. Then, today I decided to go hunt in a flying safari and out popped a shiny spearow so Community Hunt Complete.

Edit Caught a shiny Rufflet in the friend safari! Super happy been waiting to get one of these as shiny! Community Hunt Complete x2

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire: I have still yet to start hatching my eggs, I think I will start that tonight, I have ten boxes of Heatmor to hatch, if nothing pops out shiny I will continue to collect eggs.

Good luck to all those hunting!

I feel like this should be my month! More than half of the shinies I've found over the years are flying types and I've thought about trying to get them all. I haven't really been doing any shiny hunting this month except for my ongoing Torchic SR in Emerald (feels like a waste of time now).

I did some more chain fishing on Y and Alpha Sapphire last night to see if my luck would pay out, but no Shiny took the bait. I hatched 40 or so more Wooper eggs as well yesterday afternoon and I even spent 50 minutes doing random encounters for Shinies at the Friend Safari. Good luck to others btw.

After a mere 178 eggs, I find a blue tyrunt. He's jolly and likes to thrash about, and he got Sturdy, his HA. Gonna train him and get him evolved when the game's day-cycle begins.

Next MM will be ducklett, I think.

Shiny alphabet hunt round 2 is at 500 REs

thank you very much for the congrats everyone!! for the record, 2rsa the porygon is bringing straight power to my team XD

my next target for this bq will be latias.
ik. its gonna take 1 million year but
i was tired of the standard methods, never done an RA hunt befpore. exciting!!
i donyt really love the eon duos shiny colourin tbh so idk. might switch to hunting sandshrew if this gets boring.

does anyone else find it annoying when youtubers do clearly fake reactions for a shiny thsat often involve alot of bellowing?

also, how many battle turns before latias struggles herself to death?
Yeah, I find the reactions really irritating. Especially from the people who have found hundreds of shinies. I barely react when I find a shiny at this point. Only long hunts or original odds hunts will get a reaction out of me these days.

I have no idea what I've found in terms of shinies since I last posted >.< in the last few weeks I did FS looking for Mankey but have had no luck. Instead I've found four shiny Throh and three shiny Tyrogue.
In OR I've been mainly hatching eggs and dex naving. The last few weeks have been slow in that game. Shiny Venonat after ~500 eggs, shiny Diglett after ~900 dex nav encounters and now I'm hunting Meowth... at about 500 eggs again.
I would have thought with an entire week quarantined, unable to do anything but watch tv and play pokemon I would have found more shinies, but no luck >.< My friend kept joking that I was too radioactive for my games to generate shinies, though I doubt that was to blame as I did get a few tyrogues and the venonat eventually.
Anyhoot, good luck to everyone in their hunts. I'm gonna keep at my mankey and meowth hunts and hopefully get something this week :p

edit - make that four shiny tyrogues T_T

You're barely at 1/3 of the odds lol and already you're going with the crying emoticon?

1/512 are the odds for MM w/Shiny Charm in ORAS so best to get into gear. :D

Ohh thank you a lot reallyy hahah, true sooner or later! I just got a celebi in the wonder trade with the nickname "Nevergiveup" It must have been so hacked lol but it even had as its only move Return. It felt like such a sweet detail. Thanks to you and that celebi, my resolution got much more stronger. I'm getting that cyan bloodshot tailed treecko!!! I will wondertrade the Celebi again hahah hope it might shine on someone's face too. Luck and conviction to all shiny hunters here!

Thank you Crimson Penguin, Supremacy and CpChris for the congrats!

I'm now at 13,900 REs in Valley Windworks and 3000 REs in Mt. Coronet, I also started running about in Relic Castle in W2. I'm counting the encounters on the back of the trainer card for that, I've got just under ~200 REs and it's not really a hugely serious hunt as I'd much rather be soft resetting for Volcarona but I daren't without a masterball, sigh.

Good luck everybody, especially CpChris, Razorbadger and Crimson Penguin!

Uhh, so yeah! No shinies for me yet. Turtwig is at day 11 and I was wondering if anyone knew, but is Barry's Chimchar set to always be male? I'm pretty sure I've never seen his Chimchar female over the course of this hunt so far o.o. Also, I'm at around 1,600 shaking spot encounters at route 12. I'm really excited to see what will shine first.. will it be Vespiquen? Roserade? Audino? Those Uglee birds? Can't wait to find out!

Gratz on the recent shinies and good luck everyone!

Thanks for the good luck wishes, Keane :)

Bought my 7th batch of Max Repels on Black 2 today x.X That’s 4.9M spent on Max Repels JUST for this hunt. Luckily it only takes about an hour or a little more to get enough money for a batch, but this is still a bit absurd. 15k more REs till it becomes my longest hunt :D

Black 2 is at 31,800 REs, Platinum is at 8,300 REs, and HeartGold is at 2,700 REs. Also, Johto starters are currently at 2,900 SRs and Chimchar is at 4,300 SRs. At least Platinum gave me 2 under-odds shinies before going back up over odds =\ Hoping November has some nice shiny surprises in store for the last 1/3 of the month…Though I have jury duty next week, so most likely my hunting time goes down.

Good luck, everyone (especially markasdarkas, RaichuArcanine, pokemaster13, Tina, jrmftw, Shy, Ruru_star, skilax1234, ChaoticInverse, Pluski, ElectricBassClef, Razorbadger, Keane, Crimson Penguin, and Nakashima)!
