    master of murkrow Shiny Hunter

    This is UNREAL, after only a few minutes of catching Shiny Spiritomb I wander in another FS and find a shiny Fletchinder! it has average IVs in HP and Sp. Defense but has 0 in Defense, and it has his hidden ability Gale Wings that make flying attacks faster.


    Now I can say this AGAIN this month: Community Hunt Complete!

    @artnerd thank you, and No I wont give it a nickname since I have never done it to any of my pokemon. And I think Spiritomb is already a great name as it is the tomb of the spirits of my lost shinies ;)

    Good evening everyone! Congrats on all new shinies (especially that Honedge, 1177 eggs huh? Such a beauty is no wonder you'd have to hunt for a while, congrats nevertheless :D)

    My MM hunt for Shiny Gastly is now at 660 eggs, no shiny, but I'll keep on. (660 isn't that much but I'm getting slightly discouraged lol) Hopefully it'll shine for me soon. I have a list of things I want to hunt next so I really want this to be over xD
    After releasing these 360 I have in my boxes, I'll probably go to the FS and look around for a certain thing, doubt I'll have any luck there but whatever, it's nice to take a small break every now and then.

    Good luck to everyone else so far, we will get our shinies sooner or later! :D

    Well, I was chaining for a shiny Qwilfish and my chain broke at 75.....I didn't move out my spot it just randomly broke nothing bit on reel in 75.

    Yes, my Inkay had suction cups, and was in the 1st slot in my party holding a smoke ball. I'm not thrilled right now, but this happened to me before when I was hunting for Gyarados....

    Heliotrope it shone! ^_^

    Hello everyone. Lots more new shinies found, I see. Congrats!

    I've started hunting for my next Y badge quest shiny. I'm hunting in route 8, and I'm already at 700 encounters. These encounters go so quickly in these games; especially with horde encounters. I'm hoping for any shiny other than a Seviper (since I already have one).

    Good luck guys.

    Happened to me at 135! Apparently this happens if you're fishing in an "open" spot as opposed to a sheltered one where there is only one fishable square in front of you and rocks or whatever around you

    Currently SR'ing for a shiny anything from fossils. Have about 58 fossils and I'm turning them in all at once and then checking my boxes. Done about 15 SRs on this already and nothing has shined for me. Just about to end another group... Hoping for that shiny Kabuto or Cranidos though...

    UPDATE. 2 Batches of SRs later I GOT MY KABUTO TO SHINE! MWAHAHAA. I have never gotten a shiny through SRs. So this is intense for me! :D Its Bold with the Ability Swift Swim. I don't know if either of those are good but I am happy! I'm about to go collect 60 more fossils and do this again! It only took me 18 sets of 58 fossils to get my Kabuto to shine! Its definately over 1000 pokemon, but I still say only because some people have done more than that with harder methods!

    Congrats everyone on your latest shinies, especially CoD on Honedge and Dylz on terrakion.

    Well it appears MM is my friend lately. After just 114 eggs shiny Pichu just hatched. So happy since I've always wanted to go for it but never got around to it. Thankfully I got a Japanese pichu through wonder trade so I thought now was the time!
    Can't wait to train it up :)

    Again congrats and good luck guys!
  18. Congrats on the new shinies guys!

    Just made it 2400 SRs for Lugia. I've decided to take a break from Lugia and look for some shinies on my Y version. Soft Resetting just gets so boring XD. Not entirely sure what I'm going for, might try to locate a shiny Murkrow since I've always wanted one. Good luck on your hunts everyone :).

    Covert Cactus <--- Halloween shiny

    Just got on pokemon today after not playing for a few days and I found a shiny drudigon in the friend safari. I wanted a noibat but that's ok.

    And I thought my chain breaking at 75 was bad! Sorry to hear about that. Usually when I chain fish I always try to chain in a sheltered area, but when I went on the Gyarados and Qwilfish hunt I wasn't in a sheltered area....When I went on both hunts I forgot that chaining in a "non" sheltered area raises the chance of your chain breaking.
