    600 eggs for absol and counting

    Edit: Shiny quilladin from the safari. male, lax nature and mischievous, with overgrow. Moving on now.

    I"ve gotten some more shinies in UltraMoon while trying to get all the obtainable legendaries in UltraSpace (all I need yet is guzzlord and the legendaries you get with specific legendaries in your party, like rayquaza and suicine). As I'm off for four days (after working eight in a row), I can do a bunch of trading and encounters to fill my pokedex, so I should get some more shinies this week. While getting another shiny magcargo, medicham, and nuzleaf, this is the first time I've ever gotten a shiny grumpig, and I got two! :)

    Meanwhile, my SR quest for chimchar in Platinum keeps going and going and going and going and going...

    I hatched my Odd Egg and got a shiny Magby in Pokemon Crystal. I got it on my very first egg!

    Holy cow that is lucky! Nice hatch.

    Might try working on some soft resetting in my Platinum version today. Been working on it on and off for a shiny Turtwig.

    Good for you. My Odd Egg shiny I SR'd for(initially a Pichu) was a Tyrogue, who ended up becoming a Hitmonchan. The old shiny looks much better than the current

    Shiny absol after 1,543 eggs.

    Female, in a premiere ball, jolly nature and capable of taking hits, with Super Luck. 4IVs missing SpATK and SpDEF. Going to train her, then get her leveled up and use her as a mega absol to deal with sand attack spammers when I SOS things.

    Up next is grubbin. I want my white vikavolt.

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    Got my first Pokemon Let's Go! shiny. It's a Modest Bellsprout so I guess I slap Mega Drain and Sludge Bomb on it.

    And yes, this was the result of chaining (31 Pidgeys to be exact).

    I hatched a shiny grubbin during a power outage last night. Female, modest nature, capable of taking hits, with Swarm. 5IVs perfect, missing ATK. Gonna be an awesome vikavolt. Only took 394 eggs.

    Hatching eggs for growlithe now.

    Edit: Shiny spheal from the friend safari. Female, timid nature, likes to thrash about,with her HA, Oblivious. Will be transferred to US later.

    Edit #2: Shiny beartic. Female again, mild nature and capable of taking hits, with Snow Cloak. Named Artio after the Gaulish bear goddess of the wilderness. It seemed to suit.

  10. Tried to use the swap method again, using the MM for magikarp and then swap it for another shiny.

    It was quite stubborn this time, took 1124 eggs to hatch. It was male so I used it to get a shiny Porygon. Despite Magikarp's fast hatch cycle this was probably the longest MM hunt I've done so far. Hopefully the next one won't take this long.

    Gonna try again. If I can get that 1/8 chance it'll be for a female Salandit, if not it's going to be a Scyther. I've gotta release this ton of Magikarp first though.

    Edit: Ahahaha this really seems like a joke. As soon as I started up my next hunt a shiny Magikarp hatched again after only 3 eggs. It was male so I swapped it for a shiny Scyther. It's like the opposite of my previous hunt. Only time I've ever had 2 MM shinies in one day too.

    Next target if male is gonna be Pinsir to complete the Kanto bugs.

    Shiny growlithe after 480 eggs! That didn't take too long, except for my spending more time in Monster Hunter: World hunting arch tempered elder dragons (beings of sadness and agony, especially after failing the quests for the three dozenth time) instead of hatching eggs.

    Growlithe is male, timid nature and mischievous, with Intimidate. 4IVs missing ATK and SpDEF. He hatched with the egg moves Flare Blitz, Morning Sun, Burn Up, and Close Combat. I already evolved him to arcanine for my dex, which I will probably regret later, but I can always breed another one.

    Next will be zubat, to finish of the Melemele Island dex (crobat being the last 'mon I need)

    Took me almost a week at a catch combo of 150, but I finally got my pink dratini in Let's Go. It was set to Adamant thanks to Madam Celadon, and it ended up with perfect IVs in all but Special Attack. Couldn't have asked for better. I watched 3 shiny Tentacool swim by and ran from a shiny Raticate while collecting daily spawn items to make more money for the nature sync before I got this guy.

    Going to look through my dex and decide on my next target. Might be doing a trade hunt for a shiny alolan vulpix next. Good luck on your hunts!

    Edit: ended up using my Dratini combo to get a shiny Porygon before starting the Vulpix trades. It showed up very quickly using the door method. I hope the trade hunt doesn't take too long.

    I've managed to get a shiny Kyurem. I'm going after Suicune, and after that only Giratina is left for the legendary US SRs

    Shiny zubat after 422 eggs. That was fast.

    Female, named Batty Coda (if you get the reference, kudos to you), jolly nature and likes to thrash about, with its HA, infiltrator

    Up next will be beast ball trapinch. Managed to catch one in a beast ball on the first try and have it ready to go.

    I also caught another shiny spheal in Y's friend safari. Male, mild nature and somewhat vain, with Thick Fat. This one will go into WT once I get it back to US

  15. Shiny Pinsir after 362 eggs~

    Next target's probably gonna be Gligar. Unless the Magikarp is female and I can swap it for a female Salandit.

    Also thinking of doing some SOS hunts, maybe Mantyke as my next target before MM'ing again.

    I've also continued playing Ultra Moon to eventually SR for the version exclusive legends I don't have shiny yet. And for Poipolle and Stakataka. I've only just arrived at the 3rd island though so it's still quite a bit off.

    Wasn't the Ferngully character male?

    Yup. Don't care, though. The name itself is pretty gender neutral

    Didn't take too long, but I managed to get a bluer Suicune. Now I only have to get Giratina, and that'll be it for the US SR. At least the hard part, because next I'm going to try and get a shiny of each fossil. Besides Omanyte, since I already did that in AS

    Congrats on all of the new shinies!

    So, I asked to have 3 days off from work, monday-wednesday, effectively giving me a four day weekend to rest and clean. I also FINALLY got internet at my apartment. Three or so years is too long without internet. Anyway, I've been working on cleaning my apartment these last few days since it's been pretty messy, as in can't walk around messy. So I've been watching streams on twitch and SRing in my games while cleaning. An SR here, pick up this, throw out that, put away that and another SR.
    Capture went surprisingly smooth. I started by having my Smeargle use Spore to put Cobalion to sleep. Next I spammed Dragon Dance to boost Smeargles attack to make up for the fact that Cobalion is part steel. Eventually Cobalion woke up so Smeargle used Spore again and then False Swipe. I finally threw a single Net Ball and... wiggle... wiggle... wiggle... CLICK! Cobalion was caught! I got lucky since it's Nature is Jolly but it's IVs aren't the best 21-22/22-23/0/23/3/13 and they're also not the worst.

    More Pictures:
  20. I just found my sixth Ultra Wormhole shiny, a shiny Quagsire from a blue portal. I don't actively hunt for shinies this way and I only found this one while randomly checking out the waterfall cave in the blue portal that I got dragged into. I feel like my luck's been pretty good since I keep randomly finding shinies in here without even trying, so I might actually take advantage of the increased chances of finding shinies in Ultra Wormholes from now on.
