    Pickle is a just for fun and because its so derned cute catch :D Counting down til Pokebank arrives for Sun/Moon so I can resume breeding competative shinies muuuuuuuch easier than now.

    I love your signature, it looks great!

    Hi everyone, if anyone remembers me. I've been very quiet in general, and honestly my luck in the way of shinies is non-existent at the moment. I'm hatching for Sandygast right now, and hoping to get a random shiny in Moon. I've also been REing in the Nature Preserve since November in White 2, but nothing yet.

    Good luck everyone!

    Has anyone been lucky enough for their Island Scan Pokemon to turn up shiny?

    Got the shiny charm on Pokémon Sun yesterday and have already gotten three shinies from SOS hunts. Sandyghast, Rockruff and Rattata. Once it's daytime I'll try for Dewpider. I miss posting in this thread!

    Congratulations everybody on your shinies!

    Today shiny Mimikyu hatched after 368 eggs! Mimikyu has Jolly nature and it has perfect IV's in HP, Attack, Sp. Attack, Defense and Speed.

    Gonna MM Minior now.
    Good luck to all those hunting!

    DS0308 <--- Actually me

    So I haven't really done any shiny hunting in the past purely because I never got the Shiny Charm to make it worthwhile (although I did chain fish a Magikarp and hatch a "perfect" 5IV Pidgey in ORAS amongst about three wild encounters). I finished the Alola Pokedex really quickly in Sun so I've started doing it in the last couple of weeks with fairly good results.

    Basically my intent is to go through all the new Gen 7 Pokemon and Alola formes through SOS Battles and then move onto to the ones I can only do from eggs (which would include the starters).

    First up was Pikipek which was roughly around 400 encounters. Ended up being Naive nature with Skill Link which isn't 100% perfect but it's pretty close, although I'll probably give it Overheat as a fourth move for battling purposes as its semi-viable with that nature. 4IV obviously and I'll consider dropping some Bottle Caps on it later down the line.

    Scooped up Yungoos yesterday after around 800 encounters sporadically spread over a week due to me going on holidays, haha. Had a Naughty nature, close again, with Stakeout for it's ability but would've liked Adaptability.

    Next up on the list is Grubbin (I really like Vikavolt's Shiny), but I'm currently hatching some Rough Skin Gible so maybe if I'm lucky I might grab one there.

    Congrats to all recent shinies

    After a long Cute Charm method SOS hunt, I finally found and caught a shiny female Salandit

    Nickname: Tsukuyo (After a character in the anime series Gintama)
    Lax nature with the Corrosion ability
    Perfect IV's in HP, Def, Sp. ATK and Speed

    ATK is No Good
    Sp. DEF is Decent

    Good luck to all future shinies

    Still working on litten... I'm about to hit 3,500 SRs. Really hoping it shines soon.

    >.< Come on, litten... there are so many other 'mons I want to hunt in this game! You're holding everything up!

    So back when X and Y came out they had friend safaris. I had someone who had charmeleon, growlithe, and braxien. I decided to hunt for growlithe, but ended up with two charmeleons, and one braxien before I gave up. So today I decided to go after that golden pupper and here he is!

    I did some more Friend Safari shiny hunting on X version this past weekend, tho nothing shiny showed up sadly. I didn't have much time to chain fish for shinies in Y or Alpha Sapphire, but I did spend lots of time doing more soft resets for shiny Giratina on Pearl as well as more S.O.S. encounters for a shiny Mareanie in Moon version. I have the next few days off any ways, so I'll work harder on these hunts. :]

    i'm still going strong for shiny Popplio! 717 SRs so far and these long SRs don't feel as bad now but I'm still hoping I get this under odds.

    Gratz on the recent shinies and good luck everyone, especially those SRing for starters! :]

    Careful you didn't just jinx yourself. I'm at 3,645 and counting for litten

    Urrrrggggg it's been a while since I hunted anything. I've been focusing on real life for a while and trying to find time to draw, write and hunt. It hasn't been easy. :/

    However, I have finally decided to return to Virbank Complex to get my own back! For those of you not in the know: I got a Patrat after 1000 REs, and then had to do another 28K REs only to get another Patrat. It was a troublesome time. Here's to hoping I'll get something other than Patrat this time around. I'll probably wait until I'm over the odds to switch back to Bulbasaur for a while.

    Good luck to everyone - may the odds be in your favour!

    Congrats to all on your recent shinies and good luck in your ongoing hunts!

    Yesterday I completed an SOS hunt for shiny Bruxish! It took over 300 encounters. Bruxish has a brutally low success rate for calling for help, so this was frustrating and tedious. But that bright bright red-orange and green fish was worth it! She has four prefect IVs (HP, Att, SpA, and Speed). I was EV training her in attack against Mankey via SOS when one shined! I had just passed the 40 mark, so she has the four IVs...but a Modest nature. I was looking to start another Mankey chain to continue training when Bagon showed up, so I am now about 200 into that chain. Once I am done training Bruxish and Mankey, I am going to pause my hunts to bring my competitive shinies forward from OR.

    I'm thinking about SRing for Wimpod. Any thoughts?

    I think I may have just burnt my luck for the next 3,000 years. Was hunting in Thrifty Megamart for a Mimikyu, ended up finding a random Shiny Klefki. That isn't the end of it, as about 10 minutes later I found ANOTHER one:
    /D0oBZ6K.jpg (imgur link, add it at the end of imgur . com)

    If my calculations are correct, the odds of encountering two Shiny Klefki at Thrifty Megamart are 82,846,404 to 1 odds.

    I think there is something wrong with the RNG for these games. I've seen Youtubers who have gotten back to back shinies in SOS encounters (which is a shiny fail since you can only catch one of them)
