    I had some amazing shiny luck today with Gen 4. Managed to get shiny Totodile and shiny Latias within hours of each other on 2 separate games. Now if only Articuno would shine on Let's Go Pikachu because I went weeks looking for it and never found it but I found it in 3 days in a game with more difficult shiny odds(Soul Silver) trying to see which would shine first. Sadly I failed it in Soul Silver because it struggled and knocked itself out. Still, shiny hunting is the best and I hope everyone finds the shinies they're looking for.

    Shiny frillish after 2,028 eggs. That took a while...

    Was hoping for a male, but frillish hatched female and apparently the trick of passing the shiny value to the next egg in line no longer works (I tried rejecting the shiny egg and accepting the next, but when the egg hatched it was not shiny). Eh. Modest nature and alert to sounds, with Water Absorb. 5IVs missing DEF.

    Once evolved, jellicent will complete the Ula'ula dex. Then I just need two more to complete the Poni dex and I will get my shiny charm.

    Up next is scraggy, either SOS or MM. May try SOS first and then switch to MM if I screw up too many times

    Edit: Anything that learns High Jump Kick should never be SOS'd if you're not using a ghost as a lead. Back to the egg grind

    Edit #2: Caught a shiny nincada and a shiny diggersby in a ground safari. Both males, the nincada gentle nature and the diggersby bashful with Pickup. I would have preferred Huge Power.

    The nincada will probably go into Wonder Trade; I have two breed stock nincada in US already for breeding out ninjask and shedinja.

    Edit #3: Shiny scraggy after 209 eggs. That was fast... and despite the fact that I was using a non-HA 'karp for the swap breeding, scraggy still got his HA, Intimidate. I wanted Moxie.

    Male, everstoned Jolly, mischievous, with Intimidate. I will admit, I was sorely tempted to put my frillish back in and get a male one to go with my female LOL. I'll do that another time

    Once I get this guy evolved I'll have one 'mon left to finish off the Alola dex. So up next will be misdreavous

    I saw someone got a shiny celebi again so I wanted to move this chart to recent incase you wanted a specific nature for it.

    I personally haven't hunted for shinies a lot but I still have a few, for example multiple shiny Nosepass from a friend safari while I was looking for a shiny Onix. The most recent shiny I got was a shiny Cleffa from the odd egg in Crystal.

    Caught a shiny illumise in the friend safari. Naive nature and somewhat vain, with Tinted Lens. Will be sent to US later.

    Misdreavous is at 660 eggs and counting

    Edit: Shiny misdreavous after 708 eggs! That wasn't too bad.

    Female, everstoned timid and takes plenty of siestas, with Levitate, in a fast ball. And she's 5IVs perfect. Gonna get her evolved, which completes the Alola dex and gets me the shiny charm. And then I think I might want to go for a better-natured nihilego in the ultra wormholes.

    Gonna keep my breeder frillish handy so I can get a shiny male later. Gonna hatch for a black minior and then a shiny dhelmise, after which I have a laundry list of things I want to breed shiny

    Edit #2: Shiny nihilego after 1,045 SRs. But the sync failed and instead of Timid, it came out Naughty. So the hunt is not over. This one will be going through Wonder Trade to some unsuspecting player, and I'm going to leave the Ultra Wormholes and come back until I get my Timid floating jellyfish.

    Edit #3: Shiny nihilego after 486 SRs! And this time sync worked!

    I named it Amemasu, after a lake monster from Ainu myth. It's Timid nature and mischievous (max SpATK!), with Beast Boost. Will need to bottle cap the Speed, but that's what they're for.

    Gonna hatch for minior now

    I was trying to catch my LG up to my FR, and while trying to find a male nidoran before going through Mt. Moon last night, I found another shiny Spearow. Not sure that I will count it toward my shiny badge quest since I got Spearow in FR. I wish it had been any other shiny on Route 3 lol. It has a bold nature, no nickname for now. FR is currently saved in front of the Eevee in Celadon; I started soft resetting for that last week.

    Good luck on your hunts!

    Shiny minior after 371 eggs! I love this shiny :D

    Everstoned adamant and somewhat vain, with Shields Down, and it's 5IVs perfect. Hatched in a moon ball.

    Dhelmise is up next ^_^

    Edit: Shiny yungoos after 529 SOS calls. Oi...

    I started that SOS hunt after finishing a box of eggs yesterday, figured it'd be a quick hunt just to kill some time. But nope. Bugger decided to be stubborn.

    Female, hasty nature and likes to thrash about, with Stakeout. Gonna evolve it and then go back to hatching eggs.

    Lucky you. It took me more than 1300 eggs for mine, definitely my second longest MM hunt lol

    Another shiny illumise from the friend safari. This one's timid nature and takes plenty of siestas, with Tinted Lens.

    Dhelmise is at 660 eggs and counting

    Edit: Shiny female combee from the friend safari. Jolly nature and alert to sounds, with Hustle, its HA. Very pleased. I'll be sending her to US and evolving her to vespiquen

    Edit #2: Shiny dhelmise after 695 eggs!

    I actually could have had it much sooner, but for whatever reason I hit the save button without thinking while I had two unhatched eggs in my party. I don't even remember actually doing it... I just looked down and the game was on the save screen with two unhatched eggs XP And one of those eggs was shiny. So I have a spare shiny 'karp in my WT box and had to hatch another 100+ eggs to get dhelmise.

    Dhelmise is everstoned adamant and capable of taking hits, with Steelworker, and is 5IVs perfect.

    I think I may breed for turtonator next (though I'm not the fondest of its shiny). If the next shiny 'karp is a male I'm going to switch in my frillish and get the shiny male frillish I've been wanting first, though

    Edit #3: Shiny cutiefly after 189 SOS calls. That wasn't too bad.

    Cutiefly is female, hardy nature and likes to thrash about, with Shield Dust. 4IVs missing DEF and SpDEF. I'm quite happy. Gonna get her evolved, then get back to egg hatching.

    Frillish/turtonator are at 240 eggs and counting.

    Edit #4: Shiny female pyroar from the friend safari. I was cute charming for a male >.<

    Naughty nature, takes plenty of siestas, and has rivalry. She'll go into my shiny box in US.

    Hatched a shiny Eevee in Omega Ruby using the Masuda Method in less than 200 Eggs! One down, eight more to go.

    Shiny male frillish after 419 eggs. Not bad.

    Everstoned modest, alert to sounds, and has Water Absorb. 4IVs missing HP and ATK. Never meant to use it in battle though.

    I'm going to continue counting up for turtonator. Can't be bothered to reset the count.

    Within a chain of 30, I tried chain fishing for the first time in Y and got 4 shiny Poliwags!

    Shiny male pyroar from the friend safari. He's brave nature (fitting) and somewhat vain, with his HA, Moxie. I'm quite happy with him.

    Turtonator is at 480 eggs and counting.

    Edit: Shiny turtonator after 622 eggs, and omg that brown is uglier than I thought it would be. That is not a good color for a shiny or even a regular pokemon.

    Female, everstoned timid, and capable of taking hits. 4IVs, missing HP and ATK. Not that the attack stat matters much. Hatched in a level ball.

    I'm going to prepare a pair of ralts to breed out gardevoir and gallade... I've never had shiny mega either

    Edit #2: Shiny mareanie after only 180 eggs. Yes, I was breeding for gardevoir/gallade, but I want gallade to have its HA and the shiny 'karp hatched HA and female. I do not want the HA on gardevoir, but gallade can only be male, so instead I grabbed something else that I had that was HA and ready to breed and that happened to be a Regenerator mareanie.

    Mareanie is bold nature and somewhat vain, with Regenerator. She is 5IVs perfect, with all four available egg moves (haze, swallow, stockpile, and spit up). Would be an uber-tier according to Smogon if I were at all inclined to battle competitively.

    Back to ralts. Not bothering to reset the count.

    Edit #3: Shiny ralts #1 after 569 eggs. That wasn't too bad.

    Male and non-HA (male gardevoir. good thing I'm not too fussed about gender lol), everstoned Timid and mischievous, with Trace. 4IVs, missing HP and ATK.

    The count continues for the second ralts, hopefully male and HA. Shiny 'karps that hatch female/HA, female/non-HA, or male/non-HA will be used to breed other 'mons from my breeding box.

    Edit #4: Uhm... I was leveling ralts in order to evolve it over in Poni Plains and I found a random shiny miltank. Fortunately, I still had my False Swipe absol in my party. Did not have anything to sleep/paralyze it with, but I popped a Roto Catch and caught it in the first dive ball.

    Miltank is female (duh), careful nature and with good perseverance, with Scrappy and holding a moomoo milk. Named her Hathor after the ancient Egyptian goddess frequently depicted as a cow

    I highly recommend the Friend Safari Reddit. People are constantly looking to trade friend codes and schedule times to be online at the same time. I used it to find people with exactly the right combinations to have every safari available in as few friends as possible.

    Back to back shiny Drapion and Medicham from Wormholes in Ultra Sun!

    Shiny drampa after 893 eggs. The shiny 'karp hatched male but non-HA, so I switched in my drampa and hatched that shiny instead.

    Drampa is male, modest nature and capable of taking hits, with Berserk. 5IVs missing SpDEF. Also has Play Rough, Dragon Rush, and Hurricane as egg moves and hatched in a beast ball.

    The male, HA ralts hunt continues

    I feel Gamefreak done dirty to shiny Drapion upon the move to 3D. Gen IV and Gen V Drapion had an obvious red color change as a shiny. Gen VI and VII shiny Drapion comes off as a merely lighter shade of purple with some red. Medicham still remains cool
