    Shiny Ditto after 232 calls :) Ended up being Gentle, not really the best nature but then again most of Ditto's stats are irrelevant when it Transforms. Unfortunately not Imposter and got the normal Limber.

    Shiny yveltal after only 1,119 SRs! Wow, that was quick :D

    This beautiful dark beast has the Mild nature I wanted and is capable of taking hits, with Dark Aura. I won't know his IVs till I get him back to Ultra Sun since I haven't unlocked the IV judge feature in UM yet. I had to Spore him twice, then it took three hits with False Swipe to whittle him down. I wanted to get him in a premiere ball or a timer ball (because red and white or red-black-white), but I realized too late that I don't have any of either, so I said "eff it" and chucked a fast ball at him. One shake... two shakes... three shakes... Ding! Captured.

    Going after the second stakataka now, after which I will be running the wormholes again after kyogre.

    That's the first Eevee of 4 for the Kanto Eevee family after a fairly long 636 SOS calls! Ended up Careful with Adaptability. This one will remain an Eevee.

    EDIT: Second Eevee after 151 calls! Bold sync worked here, and caught it in a Heal Ball. 4IV missing both attacking stats, which is perfect for a bulky Vaporeon!

    EDIT2: Third Eevee after 584 calls! This one successfully synced Timid so will be a Jolteon!

    Congrats on all of the recent shinies!

    Tuesday night I decided to take a break from Pearl Version for a while and work on some hunts. I thought about hunting Carnivine and/or Weepinbell in Y and Raikou in Omega Ruby but, decided on Blacephalon in Ultra Sun since I was close to full (gen 6 + 7 odds) and switching to Xerneas in the game (I said when I started the hunt that after 4096 SRs, I would switch to Xerneas). Anyway, just when I was thinking of shutting down for the night...
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    It was time to get down with the clown. I luckily had a plan for dealing with it (and kissed my shower goodbye because I had to get to bed ASAP after the shiny for work). First I used Roto Catch and let Blacephalon KO Abra with Mind Blown so it would weaken itself. Next I sent out Quagsire to prevent further minds from being blown and to use Haze to put a stop to Beast Boost. After a bit of healing, I had Quagsire Yawn at Blacephalon. We used one Ice Beam to bring Blacephalons HP just a bit lower. Once asleep I started throwing Dive Balls. Eventually...

    Unfortunately Synchronise failed and it ended up with a Quiet nature and IVs of 31/31/14/8/31/28-30. Now I'm searching Ultra Space for Xerneas and I will work on Stakataka in Ultra Moon. Good luck everyone!

    Shiny stakataka #2 after only 1,302 SRs! Wow that was fast o.o

    Sync worked this time; it's sassy nature and somewhat vain, with Beast Boost. Again, it took four stacked Roto Boosts to amp up False Swipe and Air Slash enough to whittle it down enough to catch, and then I got it in the first beast ball.

    Though I did end up starting the Rainbow Rocket thing (not that I was given much of a choice...) I am going back into the wormholes. Targets are celesteela and kyogre. Whichever I find first is the one I SR first. But knowing my luck, it'll be celesteela

    Edit: Shiny lombre on my third run. Jolly nature, somewhat vain, with Swift Swim. This one will be trade fodder, since I already have one in US

    Edit #2: Shiny sigilyph. First one of those I've caught in Gen 7. Calm, alert to sounds, with Magic Guard.

    Fourth and last Eevee (for now) after a very long 907 SOS calls! Ended up Hasty and not the Adamant I was hoping for, but it's still a very workable nature for Flareon :)

    Ignition “Go get ‘em, tiger!”

    Was trying to get a Jangmo-o to get a Razor Claw but ended up getting a Shiny Mienfoo

    I moved to a fighting safari in Y; I need a machoke form my US dex. And already I've caught the other two shinies available in the safari. Shiny sawk; brave nature, somewhat vain, with Inner Focus. Shiny riolu; gentle nature, somewhat vain, with Steadfast. Still looking for that machoke.

    Celesteela is at 800 SRs (I knew I'd find it before kyogre).

    Good on you. Golduck has always been one of those shinies that really managed to pull off changing the shade of the color but not the color itself(main body at least, though the pink extremities help exentuate it)

    Shiny celesteela after 2,323 SRs! Not too bad :D

    Sync failed (really not having much luck with the sync) and it is gentle nature, mischievous, with Beast Boost.

    Now I just need to find kyogre and I'll have everything I currently want from Ultra Moon.

    Decided to do a little bit of shiny hunting last night in Let's Go and ran into a Shiny Pikachu (it only took 23 to reach it -- shortest shiny hunt yet). Was really surprised when it popped up! :)

    Just caught a shiny Meltan in Pokemon Go.

    Well that didn't take too long! Shiny Porygon after only 1,100 SRs!! Synced Modest, it only had one perfect IV in Defense. At 40 eggs hatched for the first Lord Helix now.

    I have begun an Eevee SR in Leaf Green, in hopes of green Jolteon one day

    Where did that "Lord Helix" thing even come from?

    Shiny kyogre after only 814 SRs! Wow, that was quick o.o

    I was syncing for Adamant, but the sync failed and it came out Rash and somewhat vain (I seem to be getting a lot of vain shinies lately). Desperately wanted to get him in a heal ball, but he was having none of it and broke out of almost 20 heal balls, a level ball, and two timer balls before one finally stuck. Wanted to name him the German word for "nuisance", but the game's options have no equivalent of "ä" so instead I named it Bake-kujira after the mythical ghost whale of Japan.

    Kyogre was the last SR hunt I had currently planned for UM. Now I have to get everything moved over to Ultra Sun so I can pick up my MM hunts over there again.

    I also caught a second shiny sawk in Y; it's gentle and takes plenty of siestas, with Sturdy. Sometime later I also caught the shiny machoke I went in after; he's lax and somewhat vain (again...) with No Guard.

    Just ran into and caught a random shiny Machoke in Let's Go. He surprised the heck out of me! :eek:

    I believe the whole Lord Helix thing came because of the vast amount of people who chose the Helix Fossil over Dome in Mt. Moon. That's probably where it stemmed from, Cyberra. At 125 eggs hatched now.

    Huh.

    So, I decided I wanted a shiny carbink in Ultra Sun. So I grabbed my smeargle and headed for Ten Carat Hill. After some failing in the cave, because it kept calling sableye, I went out to the grassy part and had more luck. After several hours and 405 SOS calls, I got my shiny carbink. It's gentle nature and mischievous, with Clear Body. 4IVs, xx/31/31/31/31/xx

    It was from Twitch Plays Pokemon when they kept selecting the fossil in the bag.
