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

Hey guys, long time no chat! Congrats on all those lovely shines, especially the ones with 1/8912 odds! Since I've been away I've gotten eight shinies and lost one, sadly :( but I don't wanna pic spam the thread, so would you guys like to see my firered shinies or my leafgreen shinies? :)

Hey everyone, I've been trying to shiny breed in Crystal using the shiny Gyarados and an Ekans but I have questions. When is an egg's shininess determined? Can I save in front of the Daycare Man and reset every time I don't get the shiny?

I've recently done some shiny hunting in Let's Go Eevee and managed to find and catch two shinies, Snorlax and Rhyhorn. I was building a catch combo with Rhyhorn in both instances, and also ended up with a couple of non-shiny Rhyhorn with almost perfect stats.

At some point I was also trying to make a catch combo of Lickitung for shiny hunting, but that didn't go well.

I say use a spoiler tag and post as many pics as you want. I love shiny posts with pictures!

I'm not 100% on this, but I think as long as you're saving before he has an egg, the eggs will be randomly generated and you don't have to worry about hatching the same thing over and over.

I'm saved in the yard, in front of him after he has an egg and SR when it's not shiny to collect an egg again because it can take forever for him to have an egg. If it's generated when he appears in the yard and not when I accept the egg, I'll have to change my strategy. Thanks!

If you saved after he has an egg and you're hatching the same egg over and over again, it's never going to be shiny because the contents are already determined. You have to save before he has an egg if you want to get a shiny. That way it's a different egg every time.

If I use Pressure in SOS while I've done the Harvest/Skill Swap strategy(my opponent has Harvest and a Leppa Berry), will Pressure ruin it or are they able to continue regenerating the Leppa/PP indefinitely?

Shiny male, HA ralts after 1,451 eggs! And 5 phases...

He's jolly and likes to thrash about, with Telepathy. 5IVs missing DEF, but it's only a hair away from being perfect so I think it's still pretty dang good. He'll be a beast mega gallade.

I'm going to work on a shiny torchic next... I have a Speed Boost torchic from the event handout in XY, and I got a Japanese male dream ball torchic (non-HA) from WT a while back. Since now the ball can be legitimately passed down, I want a shiny HA dream ball blaziken.

It's been a long 4-5 year hiatus, but I've recently started shiny hunting again!

At the moment I'm switching between Mudkip on Sapphire, Eevee on SS and Bulbasaur on LG. Hoping something shines soon.

Been working on a shiny Chansey hunt in X version, and the hunt just ended. Finally ran into and caught one. :)

Shiny bronzong from a steel safari. Careful nature and alert to sounds, with its HA, Heavy Metal. Will be sending it to US eventually.

120 eggs for torchic

Edit: Second shiny bronzong. This one is quirky nature and somewhat vain, again with the HA, Heavy Metal. This one will go into winder trade once it gets transferred to US.

Also caught a shiny skarmory. Female, rash nature and somewhat vain, with Weak Armor, also its hidden ability. I seem to be getting lucky with HAs at the moment
