    Congrats to Marvs on Wimpod, maldoror on Rockruff, Cutiefly, Bounsweet, Grubbin, Rattata, and Fomantis, AmethystLeslie on Castform, Erron Black on Comfey and Spinarak, Scherzando on Rattata, Keovix on Fomantis, Grubbin, and Bounsweet, Conquering Storm on Lillipup, Charoshi on Zigzagoon and Makuhita, Super Pichu Chan on Cutiefly and Rockruff, roule on Delibird, Dragalge on Passimian, Italianbaptist on Amoonguss, Absolutely Absol on Ditto, Frisk on Eevee, Hyokaze on completing your living shiny Dex, and anyone else I may have missed on your shinies!

    Thanks to Waves01 and RedJirachi for the congrats!

    For the second time in 5 days I am near speechless... I just found a shiny Rowlet after only 104 SRs!

    I think this is the best fast hunt I could have possibly gotten and I couldn't be happier! : D I had just started casually watching some shiny fail videos on YouTube while resetting for Rowlet and hunting Slowpoke in SoulSilver. When I looked down and saw the green bird on my screen my jaw dropped and I freaked. XD This is the second fastest non-MM hunt I've ever had (only Amaura was faster at 51 SRs). I really thought this one was going to take months, especially with how slow the SRs are - I can't believe my luck! I named my Rowlet Archer, and he has a Relaxed nature (same as Volcarona, heh) with Overgrow. I'm so glad my first gen 7 shiny was one of my favorites of the new generation. And now my Sun Trial Quest is officially underway! Next stop is Melemele Meadow, hoping for either Cutiefly or Oricorio.

    Good luck to all of you on your hunts!

    Wow, not bad. Wish my owl would turn minty soon. 5,415 SRs at the time of typing. Kill me...

    Cyberra pain in the ***

    :D Christmas Eve shiny! After 2,064 eggs, I get a shiny super-size pumpkaboo! Gonna train it a bit, then send it forward to AS. He's impish and mischievous, relatively superior with four max IVs. Speed, however, is not one of them. Meh. Not like I intend to use it competitively. And he got PickUp, which was the ability I wanted.

    Edit: And while training pumpkaboo in HP, I find a green zubat. Figures... Zubat is quiet nature and takes plenty of siestas, with Inner Focus. I'll send it forward to AS, too

    After some horde hunting, I came across a shiny Hoppip.

    I'm horde hunting Reflection Cave, wanting a shiny roggenrola to take back to AS. Got a shiny mime jr instead, after 2620 REs/524 hordes. Still looking for that roggenrola. Also got another rare species, a HA carbink, non-shiny.

    Mime jr is bashful and capable of taking hits, with Soundproof.

    Edit: Second shiny mime jr after 2,870 REs/574 hordes. This one is sassy and mischievous, with Filter. Gonna chuck it into wonder trade.

    Congratulations to everybody on your shinies!

    These are my latest shinies

    Comfey shone after 385 encounters, Naive nature and Perfect IV's in HP, Sp. Defense, Attack and Speed.

    Cubone after 418 encounters, Rash nature and perfect IV's in Attack, Sp. Defense, Def and Speed.

    Vulpix after only 24 encounters, Hardy nature and perfect IV's in HP, Sp. Attack and Defense.

    And today I found shiny Alolan Meowth after 364 encounters, Hasty nature and perfect IV's in Sp. Attack, Sp. Defense, Defense and Speed. Used a beast ball to capture it makes a nice match with this shiny.

    Hopefully I can find a shiny Delibird before the days ends.
    Good luck to all those hunting!

    I had my own sort of "Christmas miracle" today, hatching a perfect shiny Feebas while I wasn't even going for it!

    I got lucky while fishing randomly at the Parfum Palace's pond on X version last night and I hooked a shiny Corphish hee hee. The irony is that I had spent days chain fishing for a shiny Corphish in Omega Ruby in 2014 and now suddenly I found my target in a different game hee hee. Any ways, I'm still doing my shiny Giratina shiny hunt as well and when it's done, I'll begin a shiny Heatran hunt. :3

    Thanks for the congrats, Nakashima :)


    Rowlet, Rockruff line, Toucannon, Vikavolt, Kommo-o, Tsareena, and Golisopod. There are definitely some other good ones, but those are probably my favorites in terms of both shinies I like and Pokemon I like. Something like Palossand has a really neat shiny, but I’m just not a huge fan of it as a Pokemon. If I were hunting in Sun and Moon, I’d most likely be going after Grubbin first.


    D: I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus recently. I think I was maybe getting a little burned out from hunting anyways, so I guess it was okay timing, but…My laptop broke =\ (Or, rather, I broke my laptop ^_^u) That happened near the end of November, and since it was just the screen having problems, I was sort of able to use it by plugging it into my TV (so I could still use my webcams without having to install them on my other laptop and try to get all the settings right), and then just using my other laptop for everything else.

    But after a few days I got around to trying to fix it, ran into some more problems, procrastinated along each step of the way, but finally (after several weeks of not really being able to use it) got it working again without having to buy a new laptop! So hopefully I didn’t screw something else up in the process of fixing it, since I had to take my laptop apart (like all around the motherboard and stuff) and I’m not any sort of computer tech guy.

    Anyways, that means I haven’t hunted since Dec. 1st. So it’s been quite a while for someone who normally hunts every day! But it was good to have a break. I ended up breeding some Ekans to eventually use for when I hunt Lugia, but I still have to get that whole team trained up so it’ll still probably be a very long time before I actually hunt it.

    I’ve been hunting the last few days since I got my laptop fixed, but apparently I’m still out of luck as I typically am =\ 26,100 REs on Black 2, 9,400 REs on Platinum, and 5,300 REs on HeartGold. A lot of times when I take a short break from hunting, I return and find a shiny pretty soon after, but it looks like not this time…

    Good luck, everyone (especially Bumblebee5253, umbreonfan3636, ChaoticInverse, CharlieDoryRose, SheroGH, G-Money, Martinzqx, tui, markasdarkas, RaichuArcanine, pokemaster13, Tina, Shy, Ruru_star, skilax1234, Pluski, ElectricBassClef, and Nakashima)!

    Has anyone ever gotten a shiny Delibird on Christmas? Because that would be fitting

    :D I got my roggenrola. After 1,327 hordes/6,635 pokemon seen, the pebble turns purple. Female, lonely nature, somewhat vain, with Sturdy and holding an everstone.

    I did get Pokemon Sun for Christmas... Now that I have roggenrola, once I get it and the others moved to AS I can prep for the litten SR

    I ran into a shiny Spinarak while working on my dex in Moon, then about 5mins later I ran into it's evo shiny a shiny Ariados, what are the chances of that lol, spinarak is male naive nature Ariados is female serious nature

    On a side note does anyone know the odds for type null being shiny with and without charm?

    Charoshi Charmander is best

    Got my third BQ shiny last night, about 45 minute too late to call it a Christmas shiny.

    For the first time, my target shiny was the one that shone, which was a nice change.


    Really glad it was Magnemite and not Minun or Plusle, although I would have been okay with Minun. Plusles shiny is very meh, and I had a very low chance of finding one so I'm glad I got a Magnemite. Plus it fills the void of the steel type shiny I had never caught myself. Now I just need a ghost type.

    Good luck to all those hunting and hopefully everyone had a great holiday season!
  17. _Edu

    _Edu Shiny Hunter

    After my first disappointing shiny encounter in Sun -Magikarp-, this last week paid off:

    *On Tuesday I got a surprise shiny Bagon in a Beast Ball while breeding for better IVs, funny thing is that he was born while I was testing how long will it take for eggs to hatch in Poké Pelago.

    *Yesterday, as a Christmas gift I was going to Blush Mountain to get the Island Scan Rhyhorn and before entering I came across a shiny Alolan Geodude; I like cathing my shinies on Luxury Balls but this thing knows Self-Destruct and I didn't wanted to risk it so I threw the Level Ball becuase I think it matches and it was a critical capture... lolll

    Congrats on your shinies, best of luck hunting and happy holidays!
  18. Erron Black

    Erron Black The Outlaw

    SO I heard about the whole Masuda Method... method(?) in Sun and Moon that involves soft resetting and Magikarp, never paid much attention to it, but today I was breeding some comp Pokemon for trades and I had a feeling I'd get a shiny that I already had/didn't need so I decided I might as well try it, y'know? I've been trying to get Drampa for a while now and it's been a pain. So I saved, put Ditto and Wishiwashi(The Pokemon I was breeding for a trade) and the first egg was a Shiny! So I soft reset and put Drampa in with my Ditto and finally claimed my Shiny Drampa!!! I'm so glad I listened to my gut this time instead of shrugging it off XD

    She's in a Level Ball, Modest with Sap Sipper, and has an IV spread of 31/31/xx/31/31/31, not exactly desirable, I'd rather have the defense and attack swapped, but nothing a bottle cap can't fix! Nicknamed her Falkor and I'm super psyched to use her soon!

    Now that I'm done with Drampa, I can move on to my Sandshrew after I get my trades done. I'm currently sitting at 255 encounters for it, hoping I can get it soon. I don't want a long hunt for this one >.<

    congrats on the shiny drampa :3 which I actually heard about this method but only downfall with this method is ruins the surprise feel of getting the shiny but if you really having a hard time I guess it doesn't hurt ;) I plan to not use this at all because I am a very patient gal as it is now going past 1,000+ eggs and resets for shiny pokes XD
  20. Azulart

    Azulart Shiny Hunter

    So after like 500+ eggs I finally got my shiny target.
    In the end it was worth it, because it has these IV"s 31/30/31/31/31/0 with Quiet nature. Perfect if you ask me :)

    I chose for Friend Ball to enhance the green tints in Vikavolts pincers, the red and yellow dots on the ball combine well with Shiny vikavolts eyes too !
