    Nice shinies guys!

    Got a shiny Beldum on Community day. It's now a shiny Metang. Still working on soft resetting for a shiny Cyndaquil in Pokemon Silver and hunting for a shiny Koffing in Pokemon Crystal. Gyarados is giving me a hard time in Pokemon X. It's one stubborn Pokemon to get to shine. Not giving up though.

    I've been shiny hunting on my VC Crystal version lately. Right now I'm trying to get a Sandshrew.

    Second bomb ball after 398 eggs! 5IV Modest, missing Sp. Atk (but a better IV than the first). Is now Electrode.

    Transferred this guy from Gold tonight as well so only need the one from SOS.

    I started the week hunting for a male and female shiny Finneon. I got the male really easy but the female is proving to be difficult. After getting the male I decided to try my luck without using the cute charm. That resulted in another male. I went to Pokebank and got my cute charm Sylveon which so far has resulted in 6 more shiny males. Hopefully the 9th time is the charm as I would like to get back to breeding for a shiny Fennekin.

  5. Landorus finally shone two days ago. Was a fairly long SR hunt.
    With that I've now got 2/3rd of the Kami trio shiny (last one is Thundurus but I'll need to complete Ultra Moon first) and finished the red wormholes in Ultra Sun.

    I geared up in preparation to try for Giratina. Got a high levelled Araquanid that has soak to get rid of that pesky ghost type and Palkia and Dialga in my team but ended up finding the other Yellow wormhole shiny I still need, Heatran.

    I guess soak will also help with Heatran's steel type to make false swipe more effective. Hoping it will shine soon~

    Congrats to everyone with their new shinies and good luck to anyone hunting~

    So I got the second Exeggcute last night after 565 SOS calls. 4IV Modest and got Harvest as well! Currently at 435 calls for Cubone.

    Been a while.

    Got shiny Dratini a couple days ago. Named her Twinkie and she has a Jolly nature, which is extremely nice for a competitive Dragonite.

    But since I really don't care about wi-fi competitions or battling, I'm just keeping her as a Dratini.

    Going for Buneary now, hoping the hunt is short, but it's not looking that way right now.

    Boy, this took a while... First Cubone finally showed up after a huge 1,335 SOS calls! Sync failed and ended up Jolly, which is still not too bad. 4IV missing Sp. Atk and Speed.

    Edit: Second one showed up a bit quicker, at 355 calls. Adamant sync worked, but a terrible Attack IV, so evolving the Jolly one.

  9. Heatran shone just a few minutes ago. Caught it with the 2nd repeat ball. Overall it was a pretty fast hunt~

    Next target's Giratina, which will finish Yellow wormholes in Ultra Sun for me. Only the Green ones left then.

    First shiny Tyrogue (for Hitmonlee) after 316 eggs! Adamant, unfortunately didn't get the HA. 5IV missing HP, which is still a Fantastic.

    Just got my Shiny Buneary.

    Impish, nicknamed her Bon Bon.

    Now I'm going for Nihilego... Soft resets be damned.

    I've gotten my shiny swole boi Buzzwole. Now I only have one more Ultra Space UB to get in Ultra Sun, that being Nihilego

    Got the second Tyrogue for Hitmonchan after 198 eggs. Hatched Careful, so should be easier to get a Hitmonchan out of it. If only its Defense IV was better...

    FOURTH shiny manectric from the friend safari. This one is female, gentle nature, mischievous, and has Static

    I'm getting really sick of finding shiny manectric. Unfortunately, I only have two dedenne safaris and both have manectric in them, so there's no escape from the stupid thing

    Edit: FINALLY got my shiny dedenne. Stubborn thing... Male, mild nature, capable of taking hits, Cheek Pouch. I am OUT of that safari now. No more shiny manectric!

    Edit #2: Shiny volbeat. Male obviously, bashful, alert to sounds, with Illuminate

  16. Pretty random but I got pokemon let's go pikachu today and found a random shiny Pidgey.

    Gonna keep it as a Pidgey just in case there will be connectivity between this game and gen 8 since I already have a shiny Pidgeot in the main games.

    The Giratina hunt I'm on is still ongoing, although sorta on hold while I'm trying out this new game.

    Hello everyone! Congrats on all the new shinies!

    I've been working on a starter Litten SR in US but haven't had any luck yet. I know I could just MM one, but I wanted to practice a longer SR hunt to prove to myself I had the patience. At the same time, I figured I shouldn't start with one of the most annoying ones right off the bat (looking at you, XY starters and ORAS Lati@s...) Unfortunately, the patience test has been working out better than expected- I've been hunting for it for about a year now. :(

    In more positive news, I recently decided to play in my AS file again, and I ran into a random DexNav Wingull! Haven't looked at him yet (and I was about to start hunting Chatot/Shellos on Route 103) but a shiny's still a shiny!

    Good luck to everyone on your hunts!

    Shiny ledyba from the friend safari, found while waiting out load screens in Borderlands. Female, hasty nature, with Swarm. I want one more, one to evolve and one to keep as a ledyba.

    Pikachu/pichu is at 1,058 eggs and counting

    So, after 4 days of SOS, Lickitung finally decided to shine after 453 SOS calls! Modest nature, Oblivious, 4IV missing Sp. Atk and Defense.
