I feel ecstatic, and I feel lucky, too. I feel like if I were to hunt for something else, it would come really soon. :D

Good luck, everyone.

it shone! ^_^
Congratulations on the shiny Bulbasaur, SFF! I think you won the race. And it has a good nature too. ^_^

I did some Whismur hunting earlier. I've encountered over 6000 of them so far, but no shiny one yet.

However I did have some luck with certain other shinies today... *points at sig* ^-^

I have a shiny Linoone on Emerald and a shiny Geodude on FR. Once I get past this one cave on FR, I might start SRing for some shinies.
 
Well 2 people are having very good days...Heliotrope got Shiny Palkia, while ShinyFuFu got Bulbasaur. Shame its too late for me to get much hunting done...could continue the good luck chain...

Congrats again on shiny Bulbasaur, makes me want mine *bribes shiny Bulbasaur with cookies and cake*. I'm SRing for shiny Bulbasaur, as usual. I now am at 17500 SR's for it, I'm still hoping to get it under 20000, but I sincerely doubt it.

When I finally get shiny Bulbasaur, I'm going to be going after shiny Eevee, one of the 3 birds and a Game Corner Pokemon. Hurry up and shine Bulbasaur, I'm waiting.

Well, I was SRing for Shiny Charmander before the race, I think I got about 100 back then and so far I got about 35 so a Grand Total of 135 SR's for Charmander. Same goes for Shiny Rayquaza, except for the numbers. I think the total for that is around 60. Good luck on other shiny hunts.
 
Congrats on shiny bulbasar shinyfufu. I remember when I got mine, just 2 days after I got LG(which was a looooong time ago)

I caught a shiny Poochyena the other day...

I don't yet think it has hit me that I'm extremely lucky.

Meh... I've always liked how shiny Mightyena looked.

Now, I'm up for any shiny that dares cross my path!!!!!

Changed my ID in FR yesterday, it is now 33753. I'm going to keep this one for a little while. I'm thinking half the reason Bulbasaur isn't showing up is that I'm changing my ID too much, but I think I'm just superstitious. Total SR's for shiny Bulbasaur is 18300, I'm still aiming to get it under 20000, but I'm losing hope.

I also managed to get some SR's for shiny Mewtwo yesterday, I only did about 20, but I was more interested in SRing for shiny Bulbasaur. I'm hoping at least 1 of my SR targets will show up before the end of this month.

Wow Major Congrats to Fufu on bulbasaur. I hope mines comes soon.

Also Off topic but congrats on palkia Helio.

Well feeling better now and been hunting but i think there will be a very minimum of hunting as my prelims start tomorrow :)o you have no idea how nervous i am right now).

Also my little project some people will know about is delayed until i am finished my prelims (6th of December) i will get invites out just after that.

Hey, MKen! It's been a while; good luck on your prelims, though!

Since my brother is done hogging my LG, I think I will be able to soft reset for Squirtle now. Unless my cousin wants to use it, too (today is the last day he will be here, after all).

Playing through FR, as well. I'm about to reach Vermilion City.

Thanks for the luck fufu :)

Since the Bulba race has been won now i may switch from Bulbasaur and get back on with Charmander.
 

ShinyFufu

Arriving glacially.
Hm, seems like everyone is switching to shiny Charmander all of a sudden...

Do I smell a Great Charmander Race in the near future? ;)

I'm thinking about starting over LG and SRing for shiny Bulbasaur there too, should I? Or should I keep SRing for shiny Mewtwo? The reason why I don't think I should is, what if I get shiny Bulbasaur in FR. Then it'll take me even longer to get to Mewtwo.

How do you do that again I forgot, you told me once but i guess I was not listening quite well.

- For anyone else answer this question: " Has most of the shiny you have ever found in the 3rd generation been on Emerald rather than the others?"
I've found more shinies in my ruby, 7, then 5 in FR and 4 in each sapphire and emerald, 3 of my emerald shinies were super random encounters though.

Today is already one of the best days of this year.

At around 12:51 AM today, shiny Bulbasaur had shown its mug!

Basically, my brother had been showing me his shiny Swablu which he encountered on a chain of 15. He was in a battle with it at the time. I truly had no further interest in his shiny Swablu at the time, so I looked at the then-blackened screen of my FR (you know, when you transition from pressing "A" on Summary), getting my fingers prepared to do another soft reset.

Then I saw the blue star in the corner.

All was silent for a moment, I could even hear my brother breathing, and he was standing right beside me! Then I looked at the nature:

Calm.

All in alll, this is going to be an amazing day. Stats at level 5 were

HP: 20
Atk: 9
Def: 10
SAtk: 12
SDef: 12
Speed: 9



It's at level 14 now...I'm still in Viridian Forest, though, "EV Training" it in HP and Defense. I won't be able to evolve it right away because I want to have clones of it as a Bulbasaur, and since I can't trade with Emerald until I fix the Network Machine...though I JUST might evolve it into a shiny Ivysaur, but then I may be tempted to evolve it again...

Good luck, everyone!
:club:
HUGE CONGRATS FUFU!! Man you totally deserve bulba after going after it for so long. I almost thought it might take as long as latias took you. Heh now you can move on and go for things like lapras and the birds again :) Lol You won the Great Bulbasaur race too, well deserved! Hmm anyone up for 2nd place? I've been doing some SRs for it too, but mostly treecko in my Sapphire. I want treecko so badly. I've been hunting it since july argh... Good luck to everyone on their hunts!

I began SRing for shiny Eevee in FR last night...I never got the Flash HM on route 2, so it took me forever to get through Rock Tunnel. I think I've had 76 sof resets so far...I wanted to do 100 but then my Gameboy had to charge.

Lets do a Shiny Charmander race because I actually was SRing for Charmander before I joined the Great Bulbasaur Race and I switched back. I don't really care about 2nd place, either I win or I don't, that is my philosophy. Anyway, congrats again Fufu, well deserved!
