    Galarian.

    Nice! :) That shiny is awesome. Sr'd for one in Gold version.

    FINALLY!
    EGG NUMBER 2630.

    [​IMG]

    I guess 2630 isn't the worst amount of eggs but I was getting a little bit desperate. I was already over odds by.... almost exactly 1000 eggs with MM in Diamond (1/1638). I was breathing heavy at the sight of my dream shiny finally in my possession. And guys, it is absolutely perfect. Shiny Buneary is FEMALE, NAIVE nature and has the ability RUN AWAY. Literally checks all the boxes...
    I'm in heaven.
    I named her Vitani, after a character in The Lion King II. c:

    AAAH I'm so excited to press on with this BQ. Six shinies obtained, two more to go!! And with Iron Island in sight, I'll finally get my hands on a Shiny Stone to evolve my Roselia.
    Next hunt will take place in the secret basement of Wayward Cave. Main target is Bronzor, but Gible and Zubat will be more than welcome. With the use of the repel trick, I'll filter out Geodude, which I have no interest in finding. :rolleyes:
    EDIT: forget the repel trick!! I average at about 2 encounters per 250 steps! I decided to use a Magnemite with Magnet Pull to slightly increase Bronzor's encounter rate to 50% in order to push Geodude's a bit. Fingers crossed!

    Good luck everyone on your hunts!

    Lucked out and found a shiny Salazzle raid and was able to catch it. Named her Eve. :)

    After wanting a shiny Umbreon for what seems like forever, I embarked on a breeding quest. After 246 eggs, my dream finally came true and I got the beautiful animation of a shiny Eevee.

    Caught a shiny Pikachu today in a raid. Still working on a Togepi shiny hunt in Shield and soft resetting for a shiny Turtwig in Platinum.

    Thank God for Pokemon Go operating a bit differently from normal games. While I was playing, I came across a shiny Chikorita, and accidentally hit run away, practically giving myself a heart attack. Luckily the overworld sprite didn't disappear, and I was able to click on it again and capture it. I also got a shiny natu today.

    Just started playing Pokemon Quest again, and tonight, a shiny Bellsprout joined my team.

    I don't even know how many encounters that was, but it wasn't all that much... 10 days after obtaining Buneary:
    [​IMG]

    Yup! Shiny Bronzor appears absolutely unexpectedly in the secret basement of Wayward Cave. If I were to guess, this would be about... 5000 REs? 6000 REs? I did not keep up in the slightest, especially considering I have been hunting the Johto starters on Soul Silver along with it, which split my focus between the two games. I'm... baffled that Bronzor shone before one of the starters did, which is a hunt well known for its rapidity.
    I've nicknamed it Onoclea after a genus of ferns, which is what I believe the plant sigil on Bronzor and Bronzong's back sprite is based on. I wanted the name to be gender neutral too so that works! Onoclea is Careful natured, has Heatproof for ability and has a pretty good IV spread all things considered! Despite being Careful, I'm not sure if I want to make it a physical, special or mixed attacker...

    I'm still in shock as I type this. It came out totally out of the blue. I also had such a strong feeling I would get Gible for some reason, that conviction lead me to not expect a shiny Bronzor to ever show up. It was my main target yet again and I am floored.

    One more shiny for my Diamond BQ to reach completion. This feels totally unreal. I have kept my most anticipated and awesome hunt for last. But I don't think it will begin any time soon, as I will need time to prepare and I am also trying to finish my summer semester in one piece. My final target for this stunning Diamond BQ will be... Munchlax. Yep. I have determined the location of my 4 honey trees (which thankfully are all accessible at this point in the game) so once I get my 7th badge I will start hunting down the little monster which in over a decade of owning this Diamond copy I have never even encountered before, so this will be exciting. I will update you guys when I land on a honey tree containing Munchlax!

    Got my first raid shiny today! I decided to join an online raid and it turned out to be a shiny Exacadrill. I was able to catch it thankfully.

    Edit: Just caught another raid shiny! A Galarian Weezing. This is the fastest I’ve ever gotten shinies.

    Edit #2: Caught a shiny Gigamax Eevee today!

    Thats three shiny Pokémon today. What luck!

    Was trying to breed a Galarian Zigzagoon to trade for someone, and I ended up getting a shiny on the 10th egg!

    I have found a regular Munchlax in one of the trees! This is so exciting considering I have owned this game for over a decade and this is the first time I ever encounter one in the wild. The hunt may begin!
    Also wanted to pop in to say that Phi the Combee is doing very well! His fights are mostly limited to Grass, Psychic, Dark, Bug and Fighting types with modest defenses nowadays. He was able to partake in my 7th gym battle against Candice and took down her Sneasel all on his own. I'm not sure how much he will be able to handle from this point on, however, so I'm happy he got a gym battle knock-out before the end (he also participated in the sixth gym battle against Byron but was taken out by the Bronzor due to some bad confusion luck...).

    The shiny gods must be with me this weekend or something. Is there some kinda event increasing the chances of a shiny appearing? I joined a raid and found a good use for my Master Ball finally. A Shiny G-Max Appletun appeared! It had its hidden ability too and had a Bold Nature. I’m pretty happy!

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    I accidentally transferred my shiny Seedot from Pokemon Go.

    That really sucks. I thought I was transferring this pointless purified Magnemite I had.

    My hunt for a shiny Togepi just ended. Just hatched one this morning. Named it Icarus.

    The luck continues! Came across a shiny gmax Duraludon den and was able to catch it. Named it Red Alert.

    I now have a shiny Seedot in Pokemon Shield. It hatched at 207 eggs and has amazing stats.

    Now I have made up for the blunder.

    Finally, after several Pokemon Go community days, I FINALLY got a shiny this time, I shiny seedot, the first I've ever had. ^_^ I evolved it into Nuzleaf, and am waiting for enough candies to evolve it to shiftry. I also got my first-ever shiny piplup this week, which makes up for no shiny in that community day a couple of months ago. I also got another shiny chimchar, so after all those months of SR'ing in Platinum I now have had three shiny monkeys, LOL.

    I'm almost at 1000 eggs on my shiny Sobble hunt. I don't see how people shiny hunt so much because I've only done like 2 so far (one at 11 eggs and another at 450-500) and this is excruciating.
