    I am being pretty lucky with shinies this generation.
    I was breeding my starter Litten to unlock the IV checker and on my 7th egg, I got a shiny! And last Sunday, I got a shiny Bagon after 3 eggs while breeding for egg moves.

    Long may it continue.

    Well I worked some more on my shiny Giratina soft reset hunt on Pearl this morning and I'm getting tired of Turnback Cave already hee hee. I did some chain fishing on Y and some on Alpha Sapphire as well, although I got no bites from shinies in either game. I'm going to try and shiny hunt on Sun soon, although I dunno how successful I'll be at that since I don't know how hard shiny hunting is in Gen 7. ^^;

    Congrats to everyone on their recent shinies.

    I once again got another shiny that wasn't a Litleo, but at least this one was on purpose, so it's not frustrating at all. I'm nearing 1500 eggs so hopefully that one shines soon.

    I figured I'd double my efforts and I was running around in a Dragon safari, to help complete my goal of having at least one shiny of every type that wasn't traded for, or got via in game/event.


    It's a new shiny Noibat. Gentle nature with the ability frisk!

    I never really noticed how nice of a shiny Noibat was. Definitely not disappointed this guy showed up, and only after about 30-40 encounters. Now if only I can transfer my luck elsewhere to my Litleo hunt.

    Best of luck to those still hunting!

    Woo! After another normal-ability shiny Rockruff yesterday, I just hatched my HA one from the very first egg following a long day on the road.
    Female, Adamant, Steadfast, Capable of taking hits, hatched at Lake of the Moone (I was hatching eggs here just for kicks), Moon Ball, 31s in HP, Def, SpDef, and Speed. Attack will have to be Bottlecap'd ASAP. Time to grind, apparently. Anyone recommend a spot for levelling?

    Best shiny Alolan forme...I'm going to have to go with Raichu. It's absolutely adorable.

    I just hatched a shiny 5IV Sneasel in a moon ball after 2 eggs! :eek: it was accidental and I don't have the shiny charm yet, but I was using my English Ditto and a Chinese Sneasel I got from the GTS. I was just trying to get a female so I could pass Icicle Crash onto it, and thus, the shiny unfortunately doesn't have Icicle Crash but she does have Ice Punch, Ice Shard, Fake Out and Throat Chop and she's FLIPPIN' 5IV!!! :D
  6. Hey everyone! I just completed the Alolan Dex and thus got my Shiny charm so I'm starting my hunts! Through regular gameplay i ran into a shiny Masquerain at the Malie gardens and that was my first shiny ever (it only took 7 generations) for a shiny to pop up haha anyways im hunting for a shiny cutiefly atm and i think im on a chain of 120~ it feels like im never going to get it although i do have the smeargle with recycle and such. I just dont see how people are getting shinies on like 30 chains WITHOUT a shiny charm :/

    I finally successfully SOS chained my first shiny this gen! It took a chain of 167 for a tiny little shiny Fomantis to show up! I think I'll probably go for the shiny charm before I try another (Dex is at 79%, we are getting there!) but I am happy with this little dude for now!

    Has anyone actually gotten a shiny over the 'supposed' odds yet? Every shiny I see is WAY below those odds, which is what makes me believe they're 100% inaccurate.

    Anyway, found a Shiny Chansey in the Friend Safari earlier. Still hunting Litten though... little bugger needs to shine soon.

    ArchangelUnmei Shiny Cottonball!

    After 671 MM eggs I finally got my shiny Minior. ;w; I don't have a lot of time to play so I've only been hatching a box or two a night and it felt like it was taking forever. Sassy nature, which is workable. I'm just so happy I finally got my little blacklight star! Now for the shiny Cleffa to go with it, but at least that I can chain.

    I am not 100% convinced the odds posted are accurate either. Unless there are a LOT of lucky people here. My shiny Fomantis showed up on a chain of 167 and I do not have my shiny charm yet. But, alternatively, I got to almost 200 on a Drampa chain with no success.

    This is unbelievable, I was leveling up a Vibrava to get Flygon for the Pokedex in Pokemon Sun when I ran into a Carbink. It was okay right? Until it called for another Carbink, but a Shiny one. I was careful not to knock it out, but it's a bit difficult since my Vibrava knows Earthquake. At one point the Shiny Carbink used Skill Swap to switch abilities so it then had Vibrava's Levitate to make it easier to not knock it out. I used a Timer Ball to catch it. This is the second Shiny Pokemon I caught in Pokemon Sun.

    Well my luck went through the roof last night I feel! I got 2 Shiny Dhelmise within 40-45eggs! https://www.instagram.com/p/BOBiqcKDsa-/?taken-by=blastoknight

    Last night I went about EVTraining/LevelingUp my previous MM hunts. Finished my Decidueye, Carbominable, and my Stareena since allk were Jolly it made EVTraining them ezpz yo! No shinies while EV training though, but that's ok! My Ribombee, Araquanid and Dhelmise need to finish EVTraining/LevelingUp then I might go SR Porygon and Aerodactyl, idk which order yet though!

    Congrats to all who have seen the Shine and good luck to those hoping to see it soon!

    Hey guys! Long time no see! <3

    Well, I'm starting to get that shiny itch back.. I was wondering, how would a badge quest work for sun/moon? I was thinking 2 shinies per island, one before and after a trail? Has anyone attempted this yet?

    Well, that was a nice surprise. Was EV training against a Munchlax chain, when a shiny one appeared at a chain of just 29. Female, level 10, Thick Fat, Serious, and Alert to Sounds. 31s in HP, Def, and Speed, 'Very Good' Attack and SpDef, and 'Pretty Good' SpAtk.

    Congrats to everyone who found a shiny since the last time I posted which was like June or something? Time sure does fly!

    Anyway I'm posting because I've found three shinies these last few weeks in Sun! While I was being lazy and trying to find a wild Salamence I found a shiny Bagon during an S.O.S Battle!

    Next while looking for a wild Politoed for the pokedex, I found a shiny Poliwag in another S.O.S Battle.

    Finally, a few days ago, I managed to hatch a pretty awesome shiny Litten via Masuda Method.

    I'd post more detailed descriptions of when I found them but I currently don't have internet at home (I moved) and can only get on Serebii while I'm at the library and I only get two hours of internet time. I also can't upload images right now because for some reason Photobucket won't let me upload and keeps logging me out. I also have Moon but I haven't started it yet and wonder if I should do a Badge Quest/Island Quest/Trial Quest. Anyway, congrats again everyone and good luck on all of your hunts!
