Was just wondering. ^^; Everybody keeps telling me that's the best way.

I figured RNGing for it in Emerald would be easier and after around thirty minutes of calibration and soft-resetting, I nailed my shiny frame. Calm, average IVs, and beautifully yellow. Pics are below, spoilered because they're big.


Proof that I did not use any cheating devices whatsoever.

I believe that RNGing isn't anything to celebrate but I just felt like sharing this because it was Deoxys, and it was shiny. Not something you can get in any other generation. And also partly because I wanted to share proof that it's legit. :B
:D That's awesome. Shiny Deoxys is one of the few shiny Legendaries that actually looks cool, in my opinion.

Well, recently, I was too tired to really write anything, so I started chaining Togepi. They're hard to chain, what with the shaky patches and the large amount of Pokemon you encounter there. Plus, I haven't chained anything in over a year. Two hours later I got to 40. An hour and a half later I snagged myself three shinies, one for each evolution. I was shaking when I got to the 30s and nearly lost it when I got to 40 and began to reset for a shiny patch. (I still remember the time I messed up and only got one shiny Ralts.)

(Ironically, the only male of the three is the only one with Serene Grace.)

Ahh, the adrenaline rush~

Default lolyes /another/ shiny

Hey guys, another shiny post. C: I found one earlier today, at a grand total of approximately 5,000-6,000 soft resets. I'm on a road trip right now and to kill the time and boredom during long drives, I decided to hunt a shiny Abra, buying 83 Abras per reset. This was the first time I actually recorded my resets, but unfortunately I had already done quite a number of them before I decided to start counting.

There's really nothing much else to say about it because I didn't actually want this shiny - it was just a time killer. Here is a picture I took right after I found it though. I really love my trainer ID as it's a palindrome. C:

Anyway, I've been hunting shiny Emolga in Pokemon Black to waste time as well, but I do want this one and was hoping it would shine before the Abra. I'm only up to around 400 Masuda Method eggs right now because it takes a while for me to collect 100 eggs then hatch them. I'm crossing my fingers I can obtain one soon, it's becoming quite tedious.

I have more shiny news, of course. Today, I completed my Masuda Method hunt for the first time at approximately 800-900 eggs. I tend to drop hunts after the first 500 eggs due to lack of interest/boredom/etc but this time, I really wanted this shiny so I still went for it. It's not a lot of eggs but I would spend at least 2 hours just collecting eggs and another hour or two hatching them. It's tedious stuff.

Here she is.

She's beautiful, Timid-natured and has decent IVs for a Masuda Method shiny (18/x/25/31/9/31). I'm super glad she got her father's perfect SpAtk and Spd IVs. I think I'll name her Mango or something similar. Also, a funny thing I noticed was that I obtained both of my recent shinies while boarding a ferry. It seems ships are lucky for me. C:
