Yeah, we're still racing! :) It doesn't matter which starter really, why should it? They all take about the same amount of time to do a soft reset anyway. I can't really even decide either, I often find myself doing soft resets for Mudkip one minute, then Torchic the next!
 
CC, did you win a shiny Camerupt and forgot to tell us? I'm looking at your avatar... And you should add your shiny Dragonite at your banner º-º

No, I didn't get a shiny Camerupt. A friend of mine, -4J-, had a normal Dragonite as his avatar, and the custom title said "What's that? Win?" At the time, I was hunting for a shiny Dratini, so I thought it'd be funny if I had a shiny Dragonite as my avatar, and that my custom title would say "Yes, -4J-, it's win." It's all pure coincidence that I got a shiny Dratini shortly after I made that change. And if you say something is "win", it usually means it's very cool.

I would ask Nator to add shiny Dragonite, but I just never got around to it. I'm lazy.

I'm lazy too, but if I had a shiny banner... I wouldn't be lazy 8D

I agree with you there. If I had a shiny banner, I wouldn't be lazy either.
Err... Fufu, you say you have a banner, but I can't see it!

Anyways, I'm getting bored with Swinub. Anyone have any suggestions for a new hunt?
 
I can only see the shiny Pokemon banner. The other one is a square with a red X inside it. Maybe you typed the URL wrong D:

Pokéradar, GO!
Se, even SS knows that he's gonna win when he races me!

Lol, I was just kidding. You know there's nothing about either of us that could possibly make one more inclined to lose a SHINY HUNTING race. :p

Which are you hunting? Bulbasaur? Because I'm switching back and forth between it and Squirtle...

it shone! ^_^
Haven't bought anymore Abra yet; I got kind of bored of them. XD

In Emerald I am currently in that little power plant place (can't remember its name...) hunting for a shiny Magnemite.

I've got my trusty Modest synchronising Kirlia with me, so hopefully I'll come across a Modest shiny Magnemite.

In Emerald, if you have a Pokemon with synchronise at the front of your party, wild Pokemon you encounter have a 50% chance of having the same nature as the synchroniser. So in my opinion, that's a great way to try and get a shiny with the nature you want.

It's there. It's probably your computer because I never even had to type in a URL. When ~Seanyboy~ made it for me, he didn't provide a URL, just the actual image. I copied that image and pasted it in my sig. Hunt for a shiny Spoink.

warnerbroman, I DIDN'T get a shiny Camerupt! It's just in my avatar!

:D I knew you were kidding. I was simply playing along. I'm hunting mainly on Bulbasaur, but I sometimes go to Squirtle just for kicks.

Which reminds me, I'm going to try getting a new ID again. I'm looking for either triple repeating numbers, two sets of repeating numbers (i.e. my current 32423) or a palindromic ID (i.e. my current 32423). I'm also switching between Moltres and Snorlax spontaneously, as I decided those are the two shinies I want on FR currently.

Shine Master, do you have any pictures? Congrats on your shiny Dratini.

I just got it less than 15 minutes ago. Pics will come later once I feel like taking them. I need to put it in the gameboy player on my gamecube in order to make my pics somewhat legible because I have a crappy camera.
 
I have a question:

If you trade a shiny Pokemon do Diamond or Pearl, will you be able to trade it back to Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald? o_o
