Finally! After well over 1000 murder encounters, I finally ran into and caught a shiny Sandygast.






Now back onto my shiny Sobble hunt.

Got a Skarmory in PoGo and on crystal a Rhyhorn through breeding yesterday at the end. Then I switched Rhyhorn for Kangaskhan and today the first damned egg was immediately a shiny, swear I'm not making that up.

Edit: I replaced that Kangaskhan with Horsea, went through all the Kangaskhan eggs I had (I frequently check for new eggs so I always work in bulk, but hatch in the order received) and the second Horsea was also Shiny. Lucky me.

Congrats. Long egg hunts suck but are quite satisfying when completed. Great name by the way.

As for my on shiny hunting I got a Snively in Go and in Shield I got an Eldegoss and Aurorus while searching for Kyogre. Right now I am continuing my hunt for Kyogre.

Thanks! Definitely.

Nice.

And just now, a second shiny Sobble hatched from an egg! Named him Buster Keaton.


Caught a shiny Machop in Go. Planning on moving it to Home and then into Let's Go and then over to Shield.

After giving up on the Scorbunny hunt, I picked up the Treecko hunt a few weeks ago but put the game on backburner for a while. Unfortunately, tested positive for COVID a few days ago so I'm cooped up and decided to pick up my Treecko hunt again. Probably about 200 eggs later, the torquoise frog popped out. I'll try and upload a photo later.

It's Impish with flawless stats in everything but Attack and Defense. Will mint and bottle cap later.

Long overdue update, but my LG BadgeQuest is finally done after many years lol. After getting training up Ponyta and beating the 8th Gym, I decided to get another shiny before challenging the E4. Did a quick 1320 SR hunt at the Celadon Game Corner to get this:

After that I beat the E4 and am planning on hunting more once I unlock the post game islands

After completing the Treecko hunt, I moved over to Sobble and a few days later a shiny Sobble was mine. It inherited Sniper as it's ability, mild as it's nature, and 31/0/31/31/31/x so I'll need to mint it but I'm stoked. Time to EV train it.

EDIT: And add a shiny Litten to the new list. It unfortunately inherited Blaze instead of Intimidate, so it'll need to be Ability Capsule'd. It's Timid in nature, and it's 31/x/31/31/31/31 so most likely will be getting minted and bottle capped.

EDIT #2: Spent the better part of today on and off shiny hunting Dhelmise and it shined for me tonight. It's Mild in nature with 31/31/31/0/x/31 so it'll need to be minted and bottle capped to fix those issues. Overall, this was probably my second longest hunt after Litten.

EDIT #3: And my shiny luck continues as Rowlett popped out on the 155th egg. I figured it'd take least 250 eggs before it shined. But it came out with Long Reach. It's Gentle in nature with 0/31/31/31/31/31 IVs. I think I'm going to take a break for a few hours and EV train these new guys.

Ever since 2021, I made a target of getting at least 1 Shiny per month in Pokemon Go. Got a Shiny Chimchar in the middle of the month, then a Shiny Machop on its Community Day. Mirror Traded it with the leader of my community, then evolved it to Shiny Machoke using Rare Candies and evolved it again instantly straight up to Shiny Machamp since a traded Machop doesn't need Candies to evolve to Machamp once it becomes a Machoke.

I don't have a better or more recent picture with me right now, but here's my Bounsweet (now Tsareena) right after I caught it in November. I temporarily went into the Wild Area for something and it jumped out in front of me. Took me a second to process what happened.



I don't have pictures of any of my other shinies, but I do have Farfetch'd in Platinum; Smoochum in Crystal; Dodrio and Victreebell in Let's Go Eevee; Magmar in Go but transferred to Let's Go; Ludicolo, Floatzel, and Abomasnow in Ultra Moon. All except for Farfetch'd were caught in 2020, which I call the Year of the Shinies. Farfetch'd was caught around 2010.

This morning playing Go I managed to catch 2 shiny Cubchoo, a shiny Eevee & a shiny Makuhita. About an hour ago I hatched a shiny Alolan Grimer. In pokemon shield I got a shiny Quagsire.

It hasn't been all good though today. I just lost a shiny Zekrom in Pokemon AS do to it struggling itself to death. It would have been a short hunt too. Couldn't have been more than 150 resets. Oh well back to hunting.
 
Oh wow, I haven't posted in here since November before I caught the virus.
I've shiny hunted a lot during my quarantine and after it as well as finally beat Ultra Moon for those version exclusives, so here's a pretty big list, not in order:














I've also hatched 3 shiny male Snorunt before I finally managed to hatch a female, but I'm not including those since they're basically fails. I already had a shiny Glalie to begin with.

Currently, I'm MM'ing for a Hippopotas in Sword and SR'ing for a Kyogre in Ultra Moon.

Also, congrats to everyone with your shinies~
