    First blue explosive gas ball after a long 1,160 eggs! Bold nature, 5IV missing Attack, which is still Fantastic. Pretty pleased with this one!

    That chain of Pikachu I was working on resulted in 3 shiny Pikachu from the same chain! One of them is now a Raichu. I ended up breaking the chain to experiment with Go Park when I got tired of waiting for something else to show up.

    Currently on a long chain for Charmander on Route 3. I'm ready to go beat Giovanni for the last time and take on the Pokémon League, though. I might just move on without catching anything until I can get back to route 3 to continue this hunt for shiny Charmander.

    Congrats on Koffing TheMaster 27th and the Pika trio Team Volt Grunt.

    I caught a pair of new shinies again while trying for good IV mons to face the Master Trainers (I want to battle them in Dex order). The first was Bulbasaur after getting a few near flawless Bulbasaur.
    The second was late last night while I was in bed half asleep. I was working on getting a Charmander chain going and was only at around 4-6 Charmander when I started dozing off. When I opened my eyes, there was a golden Spearow flying around. Afterwards there was a guest appearance of Articuno while taking screenshots.
    I started another Charmander chain this morning in hopes of getting a good IV one and if lucky enough, a shiny one.

    Decided to go for Gastly for my 5th shiny in my badge quest. Got it early this morning and to make things even better-- it's a Timid nature with 4IVs in SpAtk, Speed, SpDef, and Attack!

    Evolved it up to Gengar already. Working on leveling up a bit before challenging Koga. Probably going to go for Lapras for my 6th member, more than likely going to get Tentacool or Magikarp though...

    As for my 7th member, I'll be going for Magmar. Not sure what my 8th member will be. I'm thinking either Scyther, Electabuzz, or Tauros. Want these last hunts to be rare ones!
  5. Giratina finally shone. One of my longer SR shiny hunts, but it was interrupted for a while because of me playing pokemon let's go.

    That wrapped up shiny legendaries in Yellow wormholes in Ultra Sun for me. The Green ones are the only ones left. I still need almost all of those ones save for Virizion. I already have a shiny Dialga and Mewtwo as well but since those aren't ones I caught nor are they events I'll try for them as well since I can't be sure the ones I got are actually legit.

    Started going through Green wormholes and ended up finding Reshiram, so that'll be my target now.

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

    Shiny freaking pichu after 2,249 eggs. That was a slog...

    Male, timid nature, somewhat vain, Static, and in a fast ball. It's 5IVs missing SpATK... Damnit >.< Oh well, that's what bottle caps are for.

    Up next will be a HA popplio, then bagon

    Started hunting Magnemite for my 6th shiny in LGP.

    Found a Shiny Chansey and I failed it. Thank god for whoever picked up on the fleeing animations, or else I would've had to start my chain back up.

    Nothing since the Chansey, and I'm really starting to get irritated with this hunt...

    Also getting irritated that none of the shiny models from LGPE have been uploaded like... anywhere. I'd really prefer to use them over the ones in my signature since they're pretty drastically different.

    Congrats on Gastly, Giratina, Pichu and Chansey.

    I finally found some near flawless Charmanders and a shiny one this morning.
    I broke my combo chain at almost 300 Charmander and I'm going to start on Squirtle next. I only caught 3 Squirtle when a Bellsprout with sparkes spawned.
    I think I might start compiling my Let's GO Eevee shinies and only post them once a week if they start getting too frequent.

    Got the second Koffing on Monday after 528 eggs. Exactly the same IVs as the first one, only this was a male. Is now Weezing.

    At 75 eggs and counting for the first Rhyhorn now.

    I did end up catching my shiny Charmander and he is now a Charizard. I also chained for Bulbasuar, half to build up candy and experience and half to find a shiny, but accidently broke that chain around 87. I also chained Nidoran-m for candy, and that resulted in a shiny Nidoran-f. Taking on the E4 and Champ now.

    Wow, what a crazy night.

    After failing a Shiny Chansey, a Shiny Magnemite finally appeared for me after about two days!

    Caught it, broke the chain to level it up off of Chansey and Electabuzz in the Power Plant. Then after I evolved it into Magneton and got it to the same level my team is at, I decided to go through the Power Plant and gather the items in there.

    Low and behold a FULL ODDS Shiny Magnemite appeared! I was shocked!(Pun intended?) I would've been so much happier if it was anything other than Magnemite since... I had just chained for it, but that's one less Pokemon I'll need for my Shiny Living Dex on Let's Go!

    Beat Sabrina and Team Rocket at Silph Co., and now I'm hunting for Lapras for my 7th shiny in the SBQ.

    I was hunting for a Staryu for about 8 hours (chaining) and because I suck, I accidentally ran from it. (Miss hit buttons + panic) so after another 3-4 hours I found another! I placed it in handheld mode, threw an ultraball (was green ring), popped out.. so I raspberried ... before I even threw the ball, it ran from me. So I lost two shinies. Decided to stop hunting and finish the game.. Should have berried first but I panic too much knowing how bad I can screw up. And well I did! TWICE!

    Any who, good luck on your hunts!
    (I did get a shiny Vulpix successfully at least lol)

    Well I got my 7th shiny for my SBQ and it wasn't Lapras.

    Found a Shiny Tentacruel instead, caught it and nicknamed him Aquamarine.

    Defeated Blaine and now I'm hunting my last shiny in the Pokemon Mansion, Magmar.

    Hoping I don't get Grimer or Muk... as I've gotten 3 shiny poison types on my team.

    EDIT: And of course I get Shiny Muk. The second rarest spawn in Pokemon Mansion.

    EDIT2: Not satisfied with that final hunt at all. Not going to count Muk and I'm going to keep going for Magmar. I'll move on if I get Chansey or Raticate as I don't have a single Normal type on my team, but I'd like to get a fire type to round things off. That way I'll have a Grass, Fire, Water, and Electric type on this SBQ.

    First shiny Rhyhorn shows up after 551 eggs! 5IV missing Attack, with Lightning Rod.

    I'm on a 150 combo for Vulpix. I found 1 shiny Vulpix fairly early on, but I didn't set its nature and it got a really bad one. Since I wasn't done collecting Vulpix Candy, I kept trying to get a second using madam Celadon to ensure it is Timid. Since the first Vulpix, I have run away from or ignored the following shiny pokemon:

    Rhyhorn (while breaking from Vulpix to search for items in Cerulean Cave)

    Everything starting with the first Chansey was found today. I died a little inside each time I ran, but I've invested too much into this hunt to break my combo on something else.

    Congrats on Koffing, Charmander, Magnemite x2, Tentacruel, Muk, Rhyhorn and Vulpix. Too bad about the Staryu ohjeezitskim.

    I was working on my Squirtle chain and decided to collect items in Cerulean Cave when, just like Team Volt Grunt, a shiny Rhyhorn spawned. The thing is, it spawned right on top of me and I didn't get a chance to screenshot the overworld sparkles.
    Back to the Squirtle grind from the beginning.

    Continued hunting for Magmar and got three shinies so far.

    2 Raticate and 1 Chansey.

    Caught one of the Raticates and intentionally failed the other and the Chansey.

    I just want my Magmar now... :(

    I was at Route 10 trying to find a Dratini in the water

    While this was my first shiny in LGP, I already have a shiny Magikarp in US. Though I was excited to capture it. I'm not planning to evolve it since I already have a shiny Gyarados in US. And it doesn't follow me on land, only in water.

    It's shiny form looks so marvelous in the big screen. :D

    Update on the Magmar hunt:

    Successfully caught my Shiny Magmar.

    Took 8 phases. In order, I found:

    Muk, Raticate, Raticate, Chansey, Rattata, Rattata, Chansey, and last but most certainly NOT least! Magmar!

    Stockpiled 200 candies and synchronized for Modest, so... He's a REALLY beefy Magmar now. Nicknamed him Spitfire.

    Caught the last Chansey I got and named her Luck btw. She was Modest too due to the synchronizing.

    Time to beat Giovanni and wrap up this SBQ!

    Shiny FEMALE popplio after 1,490 eggs! :D

    Yup, a female. I was not expecting that. She's modest nature, capable of taking hits, and has her HA, Liquid Voice. 4IVs missing HP and ATK, but ATK isn't needed anyway and I can bottle cap the HP

    Bagon next.
