    I am about to start SRing for a shiny Ho-Oh in HG and it got me wondering... What was your shortest and/or longest soft reset session before you got your end result?

    That is, in terms of how many times you had to soft reset before you actually got your shiny/good natured/desired gender poke. Or whatever you may have been soft resetting for.

    If we're talkin about incomplete ones, I SR'd the static Latias in SS about 10 times, then lost patience for it :p

    I never had enough determination to SR much. I went probably 250 times and got sick of it and stopped when trying to get shiny Giratina.

    My longest SR hunt ever was 13,285 SRs for Treecko, while my shortest hunt in HG was Sudowoodo which was somewhere around 900 SRs. Good luck on your Ho-oh hunt, im also hunting him in my HG.

    I don't know the precise number, but using the counter app, I got around 20k resets for a Shiny Palkia.

    I believe I only had to soft reset once when I was trying to get a female Treecko from Steven. I was prepared to sit through about a half hour or so and was relieved when I saw the pink down arrow thing.

    Yesterday, I spent 2 hours in pokemon leaf green trying to catch a pikachu in viridian forest with a beneficial nature. I almost threw my game against wall. Now I have to do it again, but with diglett..

    My longest is two months for a shiny Landorus. My shortest was Houndour, which took literally 17 encounters.

    I've been SR'ing and buying 5 Dratini at the game corner for about two weeks now with no luck.

    That's 5 new Dratini about every 2 minutes, and still... NO SHINY DRATINI!!!

    I don't quite remember how many SRs it took for me to get shiny Dialga on Platinum, but I do know that it took months to accomplish at any rate. I'm not sure about how long it took for me to get shiny Palkia, not that it matters though, since my Luxray killed it. T_T I was at my grandmother's when it happened, so I couldn't excatly curse to oblivion. lolz

    I need some motivation from my fellow serebii community. I have been trying to sr a shiny rayquaza and it has been several days and around 5000 resets give or take. What do some of yall do to keep up the motivation when it is taking so long? Thanks for any advice. *side note* if this is the wrong spot i apologize in advance. :)

    my only shinies have been the following.
    red gyarados in both crystal and soul silver.
    a blue dugtrio in crystal
    a shiny larvitar careful nature in soul silver when breeding for the perfect curse tyranitar
    and lastly when ev training a shiny tentacool appeared, i couldnt run because he was shiny and how rare they are and all i had was a masterball.
  17. My shortest is Giratina which took (roughly) 30 SRs.
    My middle is Feraligatr which took about 200 SRs.
    My longest is Lugia which is still going on with about 500 SRs. I'm gonna keep going now. xP

    As I'm still new to the whole soft-reset gimmick, I rarely use it. Thus, I soft-reseted I think once the whole time, and that was in the beginning of the game in Diamond. I'm kinda picky about the gender of my starter, so I soft-reseted about a good seven times (might've been more) before I got a female Turtwig.

    SpeedDeoxys Am I wrong here?

    I did 15-25 SRs for a shiny Oshawott, then I gave up. Well, I don't SR with the L+R+A+B buttons because the L button is broken, instead I use the DSi On/Off switch which works as SRing too.

    Last time I did, I only took 15 resets until I found a Modest Ho-oh.
