    It will shine soon, it's got to! The only way it won't is if you give up!

    Currently my mimikyu hunt for my mono-ghost trial quest is at 480 eggs hatched. Heart Gold is at 1675 and Type: Null is at 2665

    Good luck to everyone on your hunts!

    I feel your pain, ChaoticInverse... I haven't had a hunt go on that long yet, but I did go to almost 28,000 for a ledyba in Y's berry fields (forever known now as That Damn Ledyba) and my dialga SR in AS came pretty damn close to that.

    9,500 litten seen now. And counting... I'm catching up to TheMaster327 slowly but surely. Heeeeeeeeeeeeeere kitty kitty kitty...

    There hasn't been anything for March CH, right? Since it's too late for a voting and I have an idea, I decided to just plant that idea in :p

    Congrats on all the shinies since my last post! (which was like 2 months ago... XD) Extra-special congrats go to ChaoticInverse for finally completing that 3rd gen Torchic hunt!

    I've been going through another shiny drought since the last time I was here, partially because I had major personal stuff going on last month and barely had any time to hunt (nothing bad, just chaotic). This month I've been able to resume hunting, but my efforts have been wasted so far. I think I'm close to 30k combined encounters across all my games, with Chimchar and Giant Chasm making up the majority of those. The former is over odds now at 8300 SRs, and the latter is close behind at 7700 REs. And here I thought my White 2 luck had turned around... >_< I hope I can get some of my January mojo back soon.

    Good luck to all of you on your hunts, especially TheMaster327 and Cyberra! Hope your starters finally decide to show themselves soon.

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!

    I GOT IT! I GOT IT! AFTER 9,703 SOFT RESETS SHINY LITTEN HAS APPEARED!

    [img139]http://i.imgur.com/17cmoBE.jpg[/img139]

    AND IT'S A FEMALE!!!

    *collapses*

    She's calm nature, which is probably not good for incineroar but I do not care. Shiny litten! I can finally move on with the game! She's named after my cat, a white domestic shorthair we adopted from the SPCA at 4 months old in 1995, and who sadly passed away in 2009 after eight years of battling feline diabetes.

    I do feel bad about getting litten when TheMaster327 is still searching for rowlet, though.

    Well, damn, they do exist. Grats on your kitty, Cyberra :) As for me, 14,665 owls and still counting...

    Wow! Huge congratulations to ChaoticInverse on your Torchic! That;s been a long time coming, I was barely starting out here when you were hunting that. Congrats! :D Also a big congrats to Cyberra on your Litten too! Shiny fire-type starters sure are popular on here aren't they?

    Okay so I recently got the shiny charm on Sun, which has seemingly blessed me with considerable luck as of late. Firstly, I SOS chained for a shiny Pikipek late at night, and after what must have been 20 SOS encounters, I found a shiny! I EV trained them for the upcoming battle competition on the same night, but I haven't got an ability capsule to use the multi-hit moves with Skill Link >_< Also last night, I found a shiny Alolan Diglett after nearly 100 SOS encounters, and it's IVs were ridiculously good--4 flawless, one fantastic, and another very good. They came with a Mild nature sadly, but I'm showing them off in the battle competition for sure ;)

    Good luck everyone! I plan to MM for a shiny soon, or maybe just breed egg moves and get an accidental shiny instead. That would be fun, really.

    Congratulations to everyone on your shinies, especially Cyberra on your litten!

    So apparently my Heart Gold game has a shiny charm lol. At 1749 re the 5th mon in my BQ, a shiny flaafy appeared! All 5 have shined way under odds!

    In my other hunts I'm at 22 boxes of mimikyu in sun, 5275 re in soul silver, 500 re in heart gold and 2925 sr for my type: null reclaim.

    Good luck to everyone on your hunts especially TheMaster327 hope that owl shines soon for you!

    Congrats Cyberra! Super awesome on the Litten being female, too.

    TheMaster327; I send you all my unused luck from the past week (been too busy to do much outside of the Salandit swap).

    Nothing new from me, as busy as I've been. Evolved my Salandit and Combee. Haven't done SRs on SS in a bit, hopefully I'll get some in during my weekend.

    For the first time ever, I actually dived into MMing actively for Shiny Pokemon to use for a Battle Spot team. After 401 eggs, I got myself a Shiny Mimikyu. It's adamant natured, male, and perfect IVs in everything except Special Defense. I'll edit this post soon with a picture; I don't have my laptop on me at the moment.

    Edit: Sorry, I won't post a pic because I can't get an overly blurry image of it with my computer's webcam.

    about freaking time that was one stubborn kitty cat >.>congrats :)

    @Masters: good luck on that owl cyberra did it now its your turn ^_^

    also my dumb butt accidentally traded over alot of legendaries from oras that I need to have some of the legendary mons to open the mirage spots to shiny hunt them -_- so hopefully I have mons from older games to help me out or I am screwed for soft resetting them...

    my next target for shiny hunting is either gunna be another snivy or mimikyu thinking of doing mimikyu though since I got a shiny one by accident for snivy....

    As I was doing my usual soft resets during my shiny Giratina hunt last night, I finally got it to sparkle hee hee. It took thousands of soft resets, but I managed to catch the shiny Giratina that I've been obsessed with finding for the past couple of months, which makes the whole hunt seem worthwhile. I'm going to take a break from shiny hunting on Pearl now and simply focus on my chain fishing hunts in Y and my Masuda method hunt in Moon. :3

    It's been a year since I've hunted. Just chained two shiny Bronzor and two shiny Aron in Platinum. Evolved one each into Bronzong and Aggron. Used Magnet Pull to make it easier to get back in the swing of things, don't know what I'll go after next.

    Well, after countless tries, including accidentally stopping an SOS chain with beak blast and finishing a match early to go to bed, I finally caught a shiny yungoos, my first shiny in over two months. I was bound and determined to get one, which wasn't easy because I normally only play at night, and I haven't started Moon yet. I had two days in a row where I started the chain in the morning, closed my working 3DS (I will trade in the broken 2DS I mentioned last week), and left it on the charger in pause mode until I came back from work so I could hunt yungoos well into the evening. Then, of course, I find the shiny on a short chain on a day off in the afternoon, LOL. Well, at least that's it for the time-sensitive hunts for now.

    I'll either SOS hunt for growlithe (for my shiny Rocketdex) or cutiefly next, and later I'll get mimikyu (spoilers). I don't think I'll bother chaining mareanie (spoilers) because I've seen on twitch and YouTube that it can be a headache, since it can only be called by corsola and it won't call friends, so I'll wait till I get the shiny charm and I'll MM it.

    Well when you can't get a shiny female poplio because of how swap works on uneven genders, what do I do?

    Be the world's most indecisive shiny hunter it seems!

    But after about a hour I decided on Bagon as a few weeks ago I chained one but my sync failed. Now I finally have an adamant female shiny Bagon with ?/31/31/31/31/31 IVs.

    So, I collected 500 eggs across 10 different Pokémon. This was another one of my hunts where I mixed up all the eggs so I was not sure which Pokémon would hatch at any given point. This was my first time doing this in generation VII, but I made it work.

    Anyways, a got a shiny in the first box. I have 16 more boxes to go.
    He is a shiny Rockruff. He is everstoned Adamant with Vital Spirit and Fire Fang for an Egg Move.
    His IV spread is 31/31/x/31/31/31. I can Hyper Train that defense stat eventually. I will accept this guy.

    Time to hatch the rest of these eggs. Good luck to everyone else!

    I didn't know we had a community hunt going guess I will hunt popplio instead XD which rip if its male that is why so scared to mm it since I really want it female >.>

    After just 17 eggs, I hatched myself a shiny Froakie. It is female, Protean, Modest, but only has perfect IVs in Defense and Sp. Attack. This is fine though. I will bottle cap the missing IVs. This thing will be really easy to raise anyway; starters always are imo.

    *checks* Oh, we do have a CH going on. I guess that means I completed it with litten, since litten (now torracat) has a three-stage evolution.

    I'm REing in the grass next to the trainer school on route 1. Want meowth but I'll take grimer, too. Do not want magnemite; I already have a (normal) grubbin that I want to use once the thing evolves.

    ...And the shiny tapu koko is being distributed in Japan now *snarl*
