    Alright, next SR I'm focusing on is Latias. I plan mainly to focus on SR shinies that are hard or impossible to non-SR for shiny otherwise

    shiny cyndaquil for sure i just love the purple flames XD i am sring it right now for a shiny on virtural console silver version XD

    so guys i am about to get to 400 srs in and no shiny yet wonder if i will go over the odds or not we shall see i know its not much srs but i can't give up XD

    good luck and congrats to all other shinies that were just obtained after my last post ^_^

    also question gen 2 i know that ivs affect it to be shiny however there is a youtube video saying you can abuse the game by time and date to affect it to be shiny on the first try is that right? does date and time have anything to do with it being shiny?

    I feel some shinies should keep some old colors. I wish Hitmonchan had its original blue shirt in future games, that was a cool shiny effect

    Couldn't you breed the first female Eevee you get with whatever, and then get a shiny Male Eevee?

    You pass on the Defense IV of 10 and the Special IV of 2,10 no matter what (I believe) so you could just breed the female Eevee with an inert shiny gene until you get a male Eevee that is shiny.

    Which is your favorite shiny Eevelution? I am quite partial to Umbreon, the deep blue rings complement its black fur really well. Glaceon is a second choice as its a good example of a shiny that looks good by simply changing the hue of the color

    Probably Sylveon; blue just suits it well.

    I'm fond of shiny Eevee actually, the grayish and white tints look great on him.

    This would be the case if the male shiny in this scenario could pass the defence and special dv to a male but a male shiny will only pass shinyness to a female which isn't possible in gen2 with 1/7 gender ratios.

    So After 2 phases and a Total of 37920 RE (13797 for a zigzagoon) i FINALLY got my Shiny nincada in sapphire it's male and has a modest nature (perfect for shedinja), never thought this day would come...

    Great! I was planning on getting one in OR. What do Phases mean?
  13. Hunter of shiny

    Hunter of shiny shiny huntress

    Phases means when you find a shiny that is not your target, for example i found a shiny zigzagoon in my First phase which was not my target and then in the second i got nincada which was my target

    Not much to share. Bred a shiny Pidgey in VC Gold, in honor of the one I ran from so many years ago. She ended up being one of my strongest fighters for the E4, too.
    Gonna hunt Lugia and Ho-oh after I clear Kanto. Maybe I'll get lucky enough to get one of them before US/UM come out, but I doubt it.

    i got a long road ahead of me, trying to hatch 60-90 eggs a day when i have the free time to do so. im trying to get 4 shiny magikarp to swap out the fish for the 4 wanted pkmn.

    I was in Mistralton Cave on my way to catch Cobalion, when I came across a dust cloud containing a shiny Drilbur. It would've gone on my team, but I was already in the endgame with a fully-evolved party. So I dunno what to do with this little guy now.

    Been trying to ditto breed Marill for the last 3 days with no luck.

    On the bright side it brought my non-shiny Azumarill up to level 70.

    Cyberra pain in the ***

    XP Ugh, getting an alolan form certainly did not improve shiny graveler's coloring any. In fact, it made it worse! I got my shiny geodude evolved past that stage as quickly as possible just to get away from that hideous brownish-orange.

    In other news, my shiny gible is now a shiny garchomp, and I am very pleased with her.

    Scatterbug, though, is being difficult. I'm at 1,000 eggs and counting.
