Welcome to the third reincarnation of the Malachite Mages


SWSH Standings (click to show)


"We are a group who aim to be the best, our affinity will be something the other Affinities will fear, but respect.
We shall support our own with every competition we compete in.
We will discuss, share and appreciate everybody's achievements,
be it a new shiny, a clicking record or person goals, and continue to support each other to tackle all competition, and come out the victors."

-About-
This is the third Malachite Mages group created! My goal is to revive the Malachite spirit, create a place where fellow Malachites can discuss their achievements and chat with one another, and make us a force to be reckoned with in the Site Wide Shiny Hunts!

In the group thread you may participate in group events, post your shinies*, talk about your achievements, goals and trinkets or just general talk with your fellow Malachites!
(*please read rules)

-Site Wide Shiny Hunts-
Site Wide Shiny Hunts (http://gpx.plus/help/swsh) are run every second month on the site. The aim is to hatch as many of the decided upon shiny Pokemon as you can! Every person that hatches a shiny receives prize points and a special prize, and the affinity that collectively hatches the most shinies gets bonus prize points!

Our main group focus will be to win the Site Wide Shiny Hunts! While trying to hatch the most shinies as an affinity, we'll also have group a competition for members who hatch the most shinies. See the 'SWSH Info' spoiler below for more details.

Next SWSH: November

-Group Events-
In the months where there is no SWSH, we will run group events! Group events will run on a rotational system which will include a Group Wide Shiny Hunt (GWSH), Dress Up Contest and an Art Contest. See the spoilers below for detailed information on each of the events.

If anyone has any suggestions for other group events we can do, you are more than welcome to share them!

:Event Schedule:
October: Art Contest
December: GWSH
February: Dressup Contest

-Trinkets-
I would like to encourage Trinket trading among members! In the 'Trinket Trading' spoiler I'll keep a list of members who are aiming to have a complete trinket collection and those who are collecting particular trinkets. Feel free to discuss and organise trinket trading here! You can also let me know if you change any of your trinket preferences and I will change/add/remove you from the trinket list.

-Group Banners-
Everyone is more than welcome to make some Malachite Mages signature banners! Feel free to post them in the group and I'll add them to the Banners spoiler below.

-Malachite IRC-
We have an IRC channel set up for Malachite members to chat with each other! Simply click on the following link, enter a nickname, and away you go!
https://client01.chat.mibbit.com/#malachitemages@irc.synirc.org

-Joining Requirements-
- you must be of Malachite affinity
- you must have unlocked the Newbie Clicker, Hatcher and Breeder achievements

-Rules-
- follow the forum rules at all times; this means no flaming, spamming, click begging and double posting
- be respectful and encouraging of other members
- also be respectful of the other affinities; trash talking is fine, but make sure all competition is in good spirit
- if you are posting a shiny in the group that is not for a SWSH or GWSH, please add some content to your post; I don't want this group to become a shiny dumping ground
- anyone caught repeatedly breaking the above rules will be reported
- please don't post in the thread until I have accepted you as a member: the joining application must be PMd to me
- let me know if you change your username so I can keep the member list up to date
- you are more than welcome to message me, no questions asked, if you want to leave the group

I noticed that nobody had posted in here yet, so I thought I might do so. happy.gif

I also noticed that only green shinies can be posted here. I only have one, this lucky shelter-grabbed Druddigon. It's called Losing My... as a reference to the REM song.

Y'all are gonna lose the SWSH, just sayin'. wink.gif
In seriousness, though, as an Azurite Knight I'd like to extend a welcome to this new group, and I hope it grows like the other two have. happy.gif

Posted by: eevee64 Nov 10 2015, 04:29 AM

Haha this is the month where the Malachites come back from the dead and win the SWSH! But thank you for the welcome, Cycloneblaze. I'd also like to thank Shaoo, Hiraelle and Gryphaena, leaders of the Azurite Knights, Wulfenite Warriors and Networking Ninjas respectively for their warm welcomes and words of encouragement ^_^.gif We are affiliates with these three groups, be sure to check them out!

I noticed that one of the old Malachite Mages groups had a link to a list of green shinies. The link was broken though, so I might recreate that list at some point so Malachite members have something to go by if they want to hunt some green shinies.

Morning all! Good to see the club up and running again! Not sure how active I'll be for these hunts, I'm part of the way through my Masters degree XD I will try my best, however!

That's okay! Good luck with your studies! ^_^.gif

Polling results are in for the SWSH! Cubone, Litleo and Buizel! What's everyone going to hunt first? I don't have shinies of any of those, so hopefully I'll be able to get them all. Starting off with Litleo wink.gif

Posted by: Sladin5Ever Nov 12 2015, 12:00 AM

I'll be doing Buizel first. Then Litleo if I finish on time (I already got a sh. Cubone so I don't need to hunt it)

Posted by: YunikoYokai Nov 12 2015, 02:44 PM

Going for Litleo, Buizel will be next if I find time to hunt something else ^.^

Posted by: eevee64 Nov 13 2015, 10:26 AM

We have the early lead in the SWSH! I've just updated the first post with the current affinity standings and the best Malachite shiny hatchers thus far. I'll update the stats there once or twice a day so everyone can see how we're fairing in the SWSH ^_^.gif Good luck everyone!! woot.gif

It's nice to see Mages member xhig has already hatched a shiny Cubone for the hunt! Congrats!

Posted by: Daydream Nov 14 2015, 01:55 AM

Yoo! Y'all are KILLING the SWSH. Haven't found my green little orphan yet, though. Best of luck to everyone else who is lagging behind a bit!

Posted by: YunikoYokai Nov 14 2015, 11:34 AM

Don't get cocky, there is plenty of time for the others to turn the tide :P is there an easy link to the overall SWSH page? The one in the shine recorder gives me a 404

I've just put a link to the current SWSH page under the group banner wink.gif

Awesome! Thanks Eevee64 ^.^ makes getting to the page much easier XD

Posted by: InsaneMoments Nov 14 2015, 12:33 PM

@,@ Mala friends

I thought I was alone ._.

Posted by: eevee64 Nov 14 2015, 12:53 PM

@YunikoYokai No worries ^_^.gif I had to go to the stats page and look at the contests and events on there to find some of the old SWSH pages :P

Welcome to our newest member, InsaneMoments!

Edit: Also welcome to Tydeth!

Edit 2: Just hatched my first SWSH shiny! On to Buizel now ^_^.gif

Posted by: Kwarkpudding Nov 15 2015, 01:09 PM

Firstly, hi everyone!

Just hatched my first SWSH shiny:
http://r.gpx.plus/FlDIV

Going after Buizel now, hoping it doesn't take another >300 hunt.

Good luck for the rest of the month, everyone!

Posted by: InsaneMoments Nov 15 2015, 10:10 PM

Species: Litleo
Eggs Hatched: 379

Going to be one of those hunts e.o

Posted by: eevee64 Nov 16 2015, 10:36 AM

Welcome to two new members, Spyessa and iuppiter! Good luck on you SWSH adventures! woot.gif

Posted by: Spyessa Nov 16 2015, 10:45 AM

Thank you ! I only got one Buizel for now :/

Posted by: iuppiter Nov 16 2015, 08:43 PM

Hey guys~ Nice to meet y'all!

I'm hunting buizel for now, probably cubone next if I get a shiny buizel with a decent amount of time left. I'm at 33 eggs only, mainly because I'm struggling to hold all of these pokémon I can't release yet. lol

Posted by: eevee64 Nov 18 2015, 10:18 PM

Welcome to the newest Mages member, Much Lawlz!

It looks like the Wulfenites are starting to pull away from us a bit oh.gif Though there is still plenty of time to hatch some shinies and turn this SWSH back in our favour woot.gif

Posted by: YunikoYokai Nov 20 2015, 02:17 PM

Nearly 500 eggs and buizel still isn't hatching shiny XD I might run out of time before I can hatch a cubone too at this rate!

Edit: Woo! Got the shiny Buizel! After 530 eggs XD Now onto Cubone!
http://r.gpx.plus/dZEQV

Edit: ...ok. 11 Eggs and that hunt is over XD I'm going to go back to Litleo, see if I can grab a male shiny to go with my female one
http://r.gpx.plus/ZgjLV

Posted by: eevee64 Nov 22 2015, 09:05 AM

I've been pretty busy this week, so I've only managed to hatch 180 eggs towards my Buizel hunt ^^" I'll have a bit more time this week, so hopefully I can at least get Buizel and move on to Cubone before the end of the month!

Posted by: Tydeth Nov 25 2015, 07:04 PM

Speaking of shiny cubone, another one for MM's collection: http://gpx.plus/info/AYGHV

I'll probably go for the cat next.

Posted by: iuppiter Nov 26 2015, 09:28 PM

400+ eggs and no sign of a shiny buizel ... dang. I'll get it someday. :T Hopefully before the end of the month.

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving! :j

Posted by: eevee64 Nov 27 2015, 02:59 AM

Welcome to our newest Mage, AuraMasterNeal! ^_^.gif

And Happy Thanksgiving too! We don't celebrate it in Australia, but I hope everyone else had an enjoyable day :]

Posted by: AuraMasterNeal Nov 27 2015, 09:12 AM

I've been working on my buizel hunt... and I've released more pokemon this month than I released in all the other months I've been on GPX+ ever. Yeah, I try to keep releasing to a minimum. And thanks for the welcome to a long-time member of this site!

EDIT: Also, if any members of the group have the fractured soul dew trinket, I want it. I made it, so I have always wanted a copy of it. It's sad that it got assigned to the two lesser other affinities.

Posted by: InsaneMoments Nov 27 2015, 03:54 PM

This Pokémon was egg #1356 in InsaneMoments 's 15-day site-wide shiny hunt started on November 13th, 2015.
Finally grin.gif

Took so long. DX

Posted by: Tydeth Nov 27 2015, 06:02 PM

http://gpx.plus/info/CktdV

Got the shiny Litleo, shiny #3 for the SWSH.

Now I'll try for that otter, Buizel.

Posted by: AuraMasterNeal Nov 27 2015, 11:30 PM

http://r.gpx.plus/irVZV

Aww ye! I finally got it! 503 eggs later! My first successful shiny hunt.

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 1 2015, 08:58 AM

The SWSH is over! Congrats to everyone who hatched a shiny grin.gif The Wulfenites proved too strong this month, taking out first place, but we finished second which is a good effort ^_^.gif

Further congratulations to the Mages members who hatched the most shinies! YunikoYokai, InsaneMoments, Tydeth and Much Lawlz all hatched 3 shinies each. Well done! As a prize, I'll send you a Sky Gift each. If you give me a temporary palpad add, I'll can send one your way!

I'd like to thank everyone again for joining the Malachite Mages Reborn, and hopefully we will grow in the future and pull off the next SWSH win! grin.gif

Edit: Welcome to the group, D E A N!

Posted by: InsaneMoments Dec 8 2015, 02:05 AM

So, it took uh 1,356 to get that last litleo. I almost killed the poor thing when it hatched. As for a group hunt. I would but every spot i have is full atm so @.@

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 10 2015, 04:56 AM

I was thinking for a potential group shiny hunt this month, that it could be for a fire type, considering a number of us would be hatching a bunch of fires for the dreidel event. You don't have to have it in your shine recorder, just if you hatch any shiny fire type, post it here, and who ever hatches the most wins! Is anyone interested in this? I'd like to start the hunt in the next couple of days if anyone wants to participate ^_^.gif

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Dec 10 2015, 09:50 PM

Hello,

How do I go about joining this group? happy.gif

Hi! You have to message me with the application form. All the details are in the first post wink.gif

Edit: Welcome to the group, Lumpy Oatmeal!

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Dec 12 2015, 06:23 PM

Would it be ok if I made some "Malachite Mages" banner type things kind of like on the main post, and post them here ? If not I understand just figured I'd ask ^^

Of course you can! I've been wanting some new banners and haven't had a chance to make many myself. If you post them here after you make them, I'll add them to the main post for everyone to use ^_^.gif

A couple of people have shown interest in a group shiny hunt, so I'll go ahead and start it. It will start as of reset tomorrow. So if you hatch any fire type shiny from the 14th to the 31st of December (inclusive), post it here and I will add it to your tally! It does not have to be entered into your shine recorder, so you have to make sure to post the shiny here if you're participating, otherwise I won't know wink.gif I'm not sure many people will participate, so I'll just give a Sky Gift prize to the first place person.

I'll add all this info to the main post as well, and feel free to ask if you have any questions ^_^.gif

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Dec 12 2015, 11:16 PM

Ok cool, I'll post them within the next couple days, when I find some time.

As far as the shiny hunt goes, I suppose I'll attempt a charmander hunt . No guarantees I'll be able to complete it, but eh I'll try xD

Edit:

Made one. Probably not the best, I'm a little rusty but eh.





Posted by: eevee64 Dec 14 2015, 06:02 AM

Thanks for the banners, they look great! I've added them to the main post ^_^.gif

The group shiny hunt has also begun! woot.gif

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Dec 16 2015, 03:34 PM

Woohoo! I cant believe I actually got it oh.gif
I thought for sure it would take me a ton more.
It wasnt registered in my shine recorder so I dont know how many charmanders I hatched before it but oh well.

http://gpx.plus/info/XrUzV

Hmm. Which fire poke to do next. Decisions decisions.

Guess I'll hunt Cyndaquil. Next fire starter down the line.

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 20 2015, 01:11 AM

Welcome to the newest Mage, Kaitou Kid!

Congrats on the shiny, Lumpy Oatmeal! I'm still working on Tepig...no luck so far.

Posted by: InsaneMoments Dec 22 2015, 12:48 AM

http://r.gpx.plus/JKJtV

So i hatched this green guy yesterday. only to find out ive already hatched 4 lawl,

Posted by: YunikoYokai Dec 22 2015, 04:35 AM

Grats on the shiny! I can also give good shiny news too XD I got a shiny numel! So I'm happy. Only 16 eggs as well. That's the whole Numel family got! And I only need 1 more flame shard to get the plate!

I'm also only 2 shinies away from completing my Bug Bonanza!...aside from Megas XD I don't have the stones for Pinsir, Heracross or Scizor yet but I'm hunting them now anyway for the future. I'm so excited!

Posted by: Kaitou Kid Dec 22 2015, 06:06 PM

Thanks for the welcome eevee64, sorry for late thanks as I didn't see the post till just now. Congrats InsaneMoments and YunikoYokai on your shinies. Also for the GWSH I just hatched a fire type shiny, Numel, was a recorded race against another user that I won and it took 249 eggs. Hope it's okay to post it since I wasn't in the group before it started, also I double checked and it didn't say under the info spoiler if I had to say first I wanted to participate first before posting it nor if it had to be a pure fire type, so again sorry if I shouldn't of posted this.
http://r.gpx.plus/qrntV
Also eevee64, I have a Mystical egg shell piece that your looking for, as stated in your trinkets spoiler in your signature, if you want it you can have it as I don't really care for trinkets right now.

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 22 2015, 08:54 PM

Congrats on the shiny numel, Kaitou Kid! As long as it's part fire type and you hatched it after the start of the GWSH, it's all good! Doesn't matter if you've only just joined the group. There wasn't any GWSH sign up either, it's just post your fire shiny here if you hatch one, so you're not doing anything wrong ^_^.gif
Thank you! I'd love the Mystical Egg Shell Piece if you're willing to give it to me! I've added you to my pal pad so you can gift it. I can give you a Sky Gift as a thank you grin.gif

Posted by: Kaitou Kid Dec 22 2015, 09:00 PM

That's good, and thanks that would be appreciated, I sent the trinket hope it got to you okay.

Edit: thanks for the 3 ropes, flame orb, honey, and chocolate heart

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 22 2015, 09:07 PM

I got it! Thank you so much! I sent a Sky Gift your way ^_^.gif

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Dec 24 2015, 09:52 PM

OOOH Numel! Thats a good shiny, I should have hunted that instead of cyndaquil xD

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 25 2015, 02:50 AM

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your holidays grin.gif

http://r.gpx.plus/iWMlv

Posted by: InsaneMoments Dec 26 2015, 10:55 PM

So, I found out a longtime friend of mine plays gpx and she is Mala. @.@ The amount of happy I am is insane!

Posted by: iuppiter Dec 27 2015, 09:28 PM

This is a little late, but Merry Christmas, everyone! Haven't been around much because I've been spending time with family, heh.

I hope y'all enjoyed the festivities, be it a hot sunny Christmas or a white snowy one :j

Posted by: Kaitou Kid Dec 28 2015, 04:07 PM

First to any that celebrate it happy vary late holidays. For the GWSH just hatched another fire type shiny, a Charmander, was also another recorded race against another user that took 160 eggs. The other user is at 105 eggs and no shny so don't know who will win yet. Unrelated, but also cant wait for the new year exchange, plan to send a Sh. Typhlosion, hope to get a fire shiny I don't have yet since it's my favorite type.
http://r.gpx.plus/LUiPV
@InsaneMoments, Congrats that sounds like it was a wonderful surprise.

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 29 2015, 12:48 AM

Congrats on the shiny Charizard, Kaitou Kid! I like his name cat.gif So far you're leading the GWSH with 2 shinies ^_^.gif I'm still trying to find a shiny Tepig, but I haven't been able to find many in the Shelter. I think I might change and hunt Torchic or Slugma instead in a last ditch effort to get a shiny.

Also, welcome to the group, watchingmidnight!

Posted by: watchingmidnight Dec 29 2015, 01:43 PM

Hi all! Glad to seem some fellow active Mala's.

I can contribute to the GWSH! I hatched this shiny Numel (Go shiny Numels!) on Dec. 15th.
http://r.gpx.plus/ktwUV
Although at this point, I doubt I'll get in any more shinies.


Posted by: Kaitou Kid Dec 30 2015, 11:05 PM

Welcome to the group watchingmidnight, and congrats on the sh. Numel. Guess who got another fire shiny for the GWSH? This person ^-^! It's a Fennekin, cant wait to use a snowball on her, also yet again was also another recorded race against another user that took 482 eggs, and the other user is at 21 eggs and hasn't been on since the 10th so in a week I will probably auto-win. I don't know why, but races seem to go faster then hunts. Now to try for Litwick and Torkoal since I seem to be on "fire" this month....get it? Yes, I know, was lame joke. ^^' lol
http://r.gpx.plus/zUbcV

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 31 2015, 11:41 AM

Wow, you are on fire!! haha xP.gif I don't think you can be beaten in the GWSH now, unless someone else has some super luck :P

Happy New Year, everyone! grin.gif

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 1 2016, 11:28 AM

The GWSH is over! Thank you to everyone that participated! grin.gif

In first place we have Kaitou Kid, who hatched 3 shinies, and equal second place is Lumpy Oatmeal and watchingmidnight, who both hatched 1 shiny. Congrats! magic.gif If you three wanted to give me a temporary pal pad add, I can gift you your Sky Gift prizes! I'll give 2 to first place, and 1 each to the second place getters ^_^.gif I'll let you know once I send them to you, then you're more than welcome to un-pal me wink.gif

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Jan 1 2016, 12:26 PM



Happy New Year!

Also added to pal pad eevee64~

Posted by: xhig Jan 1 2016, 01:53 PM

I wish I knew about the GWSH...I would've participated! (I actually hatched my Shiny Audino and Shiny Gastly in the time period that the GWSH took place!)

I'm actually not happy that I got that Audino. The hunt took 973 eggs, and I wanted to tackle the >1000 egg hunt achievement. Guess I just have to keep waiting...

Posted by: watchingmidnight Jan 1 2016, 06:58 PM

Happy new year y'all!

I added you to my Palpad, eevee64~

I also got my first non-exchange shiny of the year already, so that's exciting~ Not green though ;(

Congrats!
Also I stalked your profile to see that it was not just any shiny, but a novelty shiny! I know how exciting it can be to finish a novelty shiny hunt, so even more congratulations~ clap.gif
Edit: Nevermind. I see the Slime Slugma is from the exchange and it was a shiny Zangoose instead. But still yay!

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 2 2016, 03:04 AM

I've just sent out the Sky Gifts to all the winners! Congrats again, and thank you for participating ^_^.gif

It's been a few weeks since I hatched my last shiny...I have 5 hunts going at the moment that are over 400 eggs, so hopefully I'll be able to finish one of them soon!

Posted by: Kaitou Kid Jan 2 2016, 09:17 PM

Happy late New years, got my Sky Gifts, thanks ^-^. Also hope your bad shiny luck ends soon eevee64, and congrats watchingmidnight and Lumpy Oatmeal.

Posted by: watchingmidnight Jan 3 2016, 03:52 PM

eevee64, dang 5 hunts over 400 eggs at least?
You need some of my luck. (Just hatched ANOTHER shiny. Both of my last hunts were under 100 eggs. Probably means I'm in for bad luck during the SWSH though, bleck).

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 4 2016, 05:14 AM

Welcome to our newest member, DarkMoonKnight!

Hopefully my current bad shiny luck won't carry over to the SWSH! I want to hatch more than I did for the last SWSH...which was 1 :P

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Jan 5 2016, 11:10 AM

man, I wish I could give you some of the luck I've had with the SWSH. I've had two different hunts where I've hatched two shinnies in the same grouping.

Hopefully my current bad shiny luck won't carry over to the SWSH! I want to hatch more than I did for the last SWSH...which was 1 :P


I hope I'm able to do good, I had some decent luck in Site shiny hunts in the past, hopefully I still got it. Wonder when it will start, it hasn't been announced yet has it?

Hoping for a green shiny to represent malachite lol

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 6 2016, 05:29 AM

Nah, nothing SWSH related has been announced yet. I guess the voting will probably open up in a day or two. I'll have to think of what I want to vote for...

Posted by: watchingmidnight Jan 6 2016, 01:41 PM

I've been getting shinies left and right and at the point that I'm not even sure what i want to vote for. I suppose I only need two more pixie shards so I'll be hoping for at least one fairy-type.
For me, I only get SWSH eggs at two times: either right at the beginning or right at the end. I'm expecting for the upcoming one, that I'll get the shiny I need on the last day or two of the SWSH.

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 8 2016, 10:41 AM

I've finally ended my shinyless streak! I hatched a Shiny Buziel, which was leftover from the November SWSH ^^" 543 eggs it took.

I think my SWSH luck is similar to yours, watchingmidnight...I hatch shinies in the first couple of days, or the last couple, or two months after the hunt finishes haha.

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Jan 8 2016, 09:39 PM

Hope this honey+ lasts throughout the hunt lol.

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 10 2016, 09:54 AM

For the last few SWSHs the site seems to go crazy over Honey+ :P Hopefully this hunt will be no different.

There still isn't any voting for the SWSH...maybe this hunt is going to have pre-decided Pokemon? I'm curious now hmmyes.gif

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Jan 13 2016, 02:44 PM

looks like they went with a theme for this SWSH. the choices being Staryu, Cleffa, and Lunatone. I got a shiny Lunaatone for the New Year's Exchange so I think I'm gonna hunt Staryu.

Posted by: watchingmidnight Jan 13 2016, 08:52 PM

I can usually see the theme in the Admin-choose SWSH choices, but I'm really failing at seeing the theme for this one? I mean, I guessss Staryu and Lunatone I can kind of see star/moon. But Cleffa?

However, my first (and hopefully not only) hunt will be for Cleffa to get another Pixie Shard.

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Jan 13 2016, 09:46 PM

Cleffa's line is said to have come from space and worships the moon, so it fits in a way.

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 14 2016, 09:57 AM

I like these themed SWSHs! I'm going to start off with Staryu, then Lunatone. I already have a Shiny Clefable, so if I finish the other two, then I'll go for it again for my long term living shiny dex goal :P I've also just added the link to the SWSH page to the top of the group's main post wink.gif

A quick question, (I'll add this to the group joining form later), but if anyone has another name they wish to be called in the forums i.e. a shortened version of your username, let me know or post here ^_^.gif You guys are welcome to call me Eevee not that dropping the 64 makes much difference haha

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Jan 14 2016, 04:19 PM

I made this out of boredom if anyone wants to use it lol



ALSO. did anyone see a special looking munchlax sprite while clicking? I swear I saw a winter themed munchlax while clicking but maybe im hallucinating.

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 14 2016, 07:45 PM

Thank you, Lumpy Oatmeal! I also made a SWSH banner last night, so I'll add them both to the main post once I get home from work ^_^.gif

There is a new Munchlax novelty called Snowman Munchlax wink.gif It was given out as a part of the monthly egg distributions.

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Jan 15 2016, 08:12 AM

Omg I need to get one, time to stalk the shelter. I collect munchlax items in real life ;-;

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Jan 15 2016, 08:46 AM

already got shiny Staryu..... took bout 5 hours and two eggs. that's one of the quickest times I've gotten the shiny for the SWSH. decided to move on to look for a shiny Cleffa.

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 15 2016, 10:15 AM

Wow, DarkMoonKnight, that was seriously quick! Congrats grin.gif

I've added the SWSH banners that Lumpy Oatmeal and myself have made to the main post. I made a separate spoiler for just the SWSH banners ^_^.gif

Shiny Lunatone down! Hopefully I can get the other two done as well, unlike last time.

Good luck, everyone! happy.gif

First SWSH shiny down! Now hopefully I'll be able to get at least another shiny to improve on my last SWSH :P

Edit:
I just hatched Lunatone too!
http://r.gpx.plus/QMjMV

The crazy Flabebe hunt was the last SWSH I actually hatched more than one shiny in ^^" Guess it's Cleffa time now!

Posted by: Lumpy Oatmeal Jan 17 2016, 10:12 AM

Wow Eevee, you got lucky xD

Still trying for staryu, 195 eggs and counting haha

**EDIT**

Finally got him, Huzzah!

#207 xD

Thanks for having me! Right now I'm breeding Lunatone for the SWSH, but if you guys notice a shortage of another species I'll be happy to get some eggs going.

Posted by: iuppiter Jan 19 2016, 09:33 PM

Was hatching stuff for the pokéHunt and got this kid! :j

It's my first time getting a random non-hunted shiny, lol. Debating if I want another cleffa, hmm.

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 20 2016, 09:31 AM

We have another new member, Pokebub! Welcome grin.gif That now makes 20 members! I'm happy to see the group slowly growing ^_^.gif

@iuppiter Congrats on the shiny Sewaddle! Cleffas are easy to hatch, especially with the SWSH multipliers...shouldn't be too hard to get another shiny if you wanted to do another hunt :P I filled up all my PC on Sunday with a heap of fail Cleffas I couldn't release...not fun xD

Posted by: Forceman Jan 20 2016, 11:47 AM

Oh geez, I know the feeling of box clutter. I recently repurposed my empty boxes, but only left myself with four free ones.

Posted by: Pokebub Jan 20 2016, 06:13 PM

Thanks for the welcome!

I'm currently looking for a Shiny Staryu. I previously hatched a Shiny Lunatone for the SWSH after 153 eggs, lasting four days. Currently, I've hatched about 9 Staryu eggs.

Here's the Shiny Lunatone:

Yep! Had to do a box cleaning myself. released like practically 1000 pokes lol. Only kept my good stuff xD

Now just waiting on another multiplier day/weekend so I can crack out some lunatones and get a shiny lol

Posted by: Forceman Jan 21 2016, 05:54 PM

Oh geez, that's a lot to let go!

By the way, I noticed that in the image below that Site-Wide Shiny Hunt is acronymized as SWHS rather than SWSH

Posted by: Pokebub Jan 22 2016, 02:35 AM

There's a 3.2 multiplier for the day atm.

There are also 10 more days for the SWSH.

Malachites are only about 13 entries behind the currently leading affinity, Wulfenite. I think we have a fairly good chance of rising.

Loving the big multipliers! It's getting pretty crazy with the large multipliers and the low maturity Cleffa eggs xD With both the Honey+ active, plus the standard SWSH weekend multipliers, and maybe even a pass counter multiplier, be expecting another couple of large multipliers over the next couple of days!

We've been pretty constantly around that 12/13 shiny mark behind the Wulfenites. Hopefully we can make that up! Still plenty of time ^_^.gif

Posted by: Forceman Jan 22 2016, 02:56 AM

Well then, I'll just have to blaze through my exploration and get back in it!

Posted by: watchingmidnight Jan 22 2016, 09:36 AM

Second Shiny~
I guess on to lunatone.
I'm hoping this one actually goes fast so that I can do a second cleffa hunt and get another pixie shard to complete the plate!

Posted by: Rookie Roo Jan 22 2016, 08:29 PM

Uhhh. Hi.
So I usually don't post in threads because I'm too shy for my own good. (Yikes)

Anyway, I already hatched a Shiny Staryu (YAY) and I'm hunting for Cleffa right now...
I hatched 200 Cleffa eggs just today and no shiny. I have no more space for Cleffas today so... I really should have bought 4 more PC boxes when they were available. DANG IT.

Annnnddd... We are 1 shiny less than Wulfenites, so... GO TEAM, GO!

Also, what is the shiny ratio for everyone here? I have the slight impression that I just have really bad luck hunting shinies in general.

Mine is 1 shiny per 422 eggs hatched.

Posted by: Forceman Jan 22 2016, 08:35 PM

I'm at 1 shiny per 157 eggs hatched right now. From what I've seen other people say, I'd be considered on the lucky side, while you have hatched fewer than normal. Good luck in your future hunts!

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Jan 22 2016, 10:22 PM

I'm at 1 shiny per 216 eggs hatched. although that average is getting eaten some by this neverending hunt for a shiny Cleffa.

Posted by: Pokebub Jan 22 2016, 11:55 PM

tfw the pass counter is almost filled, but there's only 3 minutes remaining.


Also, Malachites are now 9 entries less than Wulfenite.

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 23 2016, 09:50 AM

My current shiny ratio is 1 per 278 eggs, which isn't too bad.

Congrats to everyone who is hatching shinies! So far we've hatched 31 shinies as a group ^_^.gif

I also just hatched my third SWSH shiny grin.gif That's one of each now...back to Staryu!
http://r.gpx.plus/kZzTV

I'm actually happy I've finished Cleffa (for now) because I was starting to get really tired of my PC filling up xD

Posted by: Kaitou Kid Jan 24 2016, 01:49 AM

Got to say our group is doing great. Also sorry not been replying much been somewhat busy, tho still manage 9 shinies in 1228 eggs pretty proud of that, more proud of this tho is you get the reference: (4 more and will have the whole set minus mini which I want to breed from 2 of them)

Sailor Senshi (click to show)

Also named my two stars after the cats, only my Lunatone isn't a sailor moon reference ^-^, finally good luck all, we aren't to behind the wulfenites! And 8 days left ^^

Posted by: Rookie Roo Jan 24 2016, 11:19 AM

Yahooo.
Finally got that elusive Shiny Cleffa, after 630 eggs hatched.
Also, I've finally got all 5 shards for the plate.
I really was giving up on it.

I think I'll go for Lunatone now. Even though it's going to drive me crazy if I don't get it before the SWSH ends. I desperately need to finish more hunts (glares at Litleo and Flabebe).

Posted by: Forceman Jan 24 2016, 06:04 PM

Here's my fourth shiny of the hunt, and second Cleffa! I've been naming my Cleffas after David Bowie things, my first one is Ziggy Stardust, but likely to change if I hatch a male shiny. My Lunatone and Staryu were named after the Spanish words for moon and star, respectively. Very creative, I know =P

I thought I was doing well having just hatched my third shiny, Lunatone, but everybody else seems to be doing really well.
Three is the max I've hatched during a SWSH, so we'll see if I'm lucky and can get a fourth before it ends!

Well, it seems to be my lucky day!

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Jan 25 2016, 01:40 AM

Anyone else been grabbing Igglybuff eggs while hunting Cleffa? Or am I the only one making that mistake.

Posted by: Forceman Jan 25 2016, 01:45 AM

All the time, man. It's really annoying at first, but you'll learn to differentiate eventually. Igglybuff's egg is lighter and the curl is fatter.

Posted by: eevee64 Jan 25 2016, 09:12 AM

I'm loving the nicknames some of you guys are using for your shinies xD I hope you can complete your Sailor Moon set, Kaitou Kid!

Glad to see everyone is hatching so many shinies! A few of you are right near the top of the most shinies hatched list for the whole site!

My personal best for shinies hatched in a SWSH is 4, so hopefully I'll be able to get at least one more to equal that ^^"

Posted by: Forceman Jan 25 2016, 03:26 PM

Yeah, I'm really happy that I was able to boost us a bit yesterday! I'm really surprised that I was able to get the "Lucky Day" achievement, but I was 5 eggs short of Creationist DX

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Jan 29 2016, 12:51 PM

finally managed to get the shiny Cleffa. now to ponder what water-type shiny to hunt so I can finish the Splash Plate.

Posted by: Forceman Jan 29 2016, 03:19 PM

Kyogre Mudkip!

Posted by: Rookie Roo Jan 30 2016, 01:56 PM

I would also recommend to hunt for Suicune Poliwag. Or maybe Horsea...

Or any other pokemon that has been hunted already at other SWSH. Teehee

That's a good idea! If I need a shiny hunt to do, I go back and hunt the past SWSH Pokemon that I didn't get.

Congrats on the shiny, Midnight! I've been a bit lazy with the SWSH for the last couple of days...without Honey+ I don't have much patience for refreshing the Shelter a heap of times to find Staryu eggs :P Though it's pretty much the last day of the hunt, so I'll try and hatch one more shiny!

Posted by: Forceman Jan 30 2016, 09:47 PM

I'm trying to finish up another moon alien space fairy but I haven't managed to snag a single one of five from my breeding pair. Heck, one user got two of them!

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Jan 31 2016, 02:12 AM

Decided to go after Mudkip cause I realized I was missing a shiny Mega Swampert in my collection. And you know as beautiful as it looks you got to have the shiny version to go with it.

Posted by: Rookie Roo Jan 31 2016, 12:06 PM

Oh wow.
I finished my Lunatone hunt.
I was totally not expecting that.
I mean, Lunatone at 151 eggs is so fast for me, if I check the other hunts: (365 for Staryu, 630 for Cleffa).
I am so EXCITED! I mean, I got the 3 shinies of the SWSH and that's a first for me, if I recall correctly.

I still want to have 2 more Cleffas and 1 more Staryu so I can complete their Living Shiny Dex, but I think that I'll hunt them other time.
Right now I'll continue with other hunts that I already had, just to clear some space.

I'm also proud to say that I managed to get all the sprites for them (well, without the 4 extra sprites that Clefairy and Clefable have, but I'll get them). I'm just waiting to evolve them in a day. Hopefully getting Darwinist in the process (3 boxes full of Pokemon that can evolve 2 times. Which means, 72 pokemon that evolves 2 times each, then I would get 144 at the end, so I think I can do it... I fmy math isn't horrible wrong).

Overall a pretty satisfactory hunt for me.

EDIT:
Good luck to everyone that are still hunting for another shiny out there! And congratulations to everyone that got a shiny.

EDIT2:
Also. Tomorrow I'm planning on releasing some Pokemon, so if anyone want to have 1, just Pm me and we can see if our schedules can meet so you can have it.
All of them are level 100, so you might be interested:

List of Pokemon (click to show)

Just putting it here to help other memebers to get what they want. Or at least to have more probability of having what they want.
Also. I'll be probably releasing Pokiis (again, at level 100) f someone wants to snatch'em.
I believe I'll release the Pokiis on Monday, and the ones on the spoiler on Tuesday, so if you want something, we can arrange the time. (Also, I have way more Pokiis for my own good, so if you want one of'em, Pm too)

There was nothing in the rules that forbid me to post this, but I'm still wondering if it's ok. If not, then I'll erase it.

Anyway, happy hunting fellow Malachites.

Posted by: YunikoYokai Jan 31 2016, 01:24 PM

Grats on all the shinies! Spread some luck over to me? 660 Lunatons later and still nothing and this is my only hunt for this month! XD Shinies just hate me this year, it seems!

Edit - Ok, 720 now, my longest SWSH to date...bleh

Posted by: Forceman Jan 31 2016, 05:20 PM

http://r.gpx.plus/QjvJV
Sixth shiny of the SWSH, and Pixie Shard #2! I'm going to keep going with Cleffa for Hatching Insanity, hopefully I'll get a male one next time so I can use "Major Tom."

Posted by: YunikoYokai Jan 31 2016, 06:16 PM

...Ok, so i can finish my Alpine Meowth hunt but not my Lunatone? XD Oh, what a weird a night...Going to try for another 70 odd eggs. If I don't get a Lunatone by 800, I'll be quitting. It's already 11pm XD

Posted by: Forceman Jan 31 2016, 06:20 PM

Good luck with your hunt! I feel you as well, I hatched some Geodude eggs here and there while hunting for Cleffa and I got a shiny of the former. I say don't quit, though! Whenever you're feeling down during a shiny hunt, just remember that there was a user who persevered through 3,000 eggs to hatch a shiny.

Posted by: YunikoYokai Jan 31 2016, 06:38 PM

Thanks, the only issue is I have my hunt to end with the SWSH (I assumed I would have it completed by now since I usually go for all 3) and it's closing in on midnight where I am...my sleepiness may dictate when I quit more than anything else XD The SWSH will be over by the time I get up

Edit - Although I've just found out you can change it...huh, never knew that.

Edit 2 - Yep, 01:30am, 754 eggs and I'm knackered. No prize for me sad.gif

Posted by: Forceman Jan 31 2016, 09:26 PM

Aww I'm so sorry! I kinda feel bad for posting this because of your fruitless attempt but...
http://r.gpx.plus/XVKJV
This is my second day this SWSH with two Shiny Moon Alien Fairies in a day! I'd have the Pixie Plate done by now if i wasn't for the 1/day limit.

Posted by: Rookie Roo Feb 1 2016, 01:20 AM

I'm just wondering, where did you got all that luck? Or where do you hide those shiny eggs because DAMN. That's really quick.

I try to have a shiny for a day and then I stop hunting because I'm afraid I could hatch a shiny and not getting the shard...

Fortunately, I already have 2 plates: Psychic and Fairy so hopefully , I'll begin hunting for more shinies that are pure type. That way, I wouldn't be scared to miss a shard. Teehee.

Yuniko, I'm so sorry for your fruitless atempt. I seriously hope that at least you can finish that hunt in this month.

Also, I was planning on staying away from Cleffas but... NOPE. With the coins system back, I'll be hunting for those 2 pesky shinies.

Last but not least, in this month I'll finally be able to complete that achievement where you need to do every exploration at least once. And in the way of doing that, I'll get another Diancie. For its Mega form.

What explorations will all of you do?

Antone else thinks that the new achievements will be released this month? I seriously have that suspicion... I hope one of the achievements will be to hatxh 2 shinies in a same batch of eggs.
I don't know if it'll be possible to have a script that records when that happens (or happened) but if they add something like that in the future, I'm really proud to say that I hatched 2 shiny Furfrous in a batch... In a SWSH.
I really doubt one could put a script for that achievement, but it'll be crazy if people actually unlocked that.

Posted by: YunikoYokai Feb 1 2016, 05:23 AM

Thanks, I still got some Prize Points (20 I think) so I didn't have to spend much to get the voucher. Still would've liked to get that damn moon rock XD Ah well, 760 and still ongoing! My bug hunt will just have to wait until I get this finished up.

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 1 2016, 08:27 AM

Welcome to the new month!! On the 18th it'll be my first GPX anniversary. I think I've gotten really far for one year.

I was planning on starting a Shellos [East] hunt now that SWSH is done, but then the anniversary means I won't be starting that. So I was like "Hey, Shellos [West] has pink and white for it's sprite colors so it must be either of those in the pokedex." Turns out Shellos [West] is purple. dumblook.gif Sooo, for now I'm hatching some Goldeen and some Rotom.

In terms of this month's explorations, I'll be doing Zekrom/Reshiram exploration (after which I only need one more to have done every exploration once). Not sure about the second one - perhaps the bird trio.

Edit: Also, since we're talking about releasing pokemon. I've got a little over two boxes of the novelty oddish, almost all at lvl 100 and full happiness. Once I get them all to lvl 100, I'll be releasing them, so if you're interested, I can coordinate the release timing.

Posted by: eevee64 Feb 1 2016, 10:56 AM

Righto! That's the end of January's cosmic SWSH! Congrats to everyone who hatched shinies, and I hope you're all enjoying your Lunar Larvitars grin.gif Wulfenites won again, sigh, though we were only 14 shinies behind them in second place. We hatched 49 shinies as a group, which I think is a great effort! On to our winners~

Taking out first place is Spyessa with a huge 13 shinies, which is also the highest number of shinies hatched this SWSH over the whole site! Congrats! In second place is Kaitou Kid with 9 shinies, and in third, Forceman with 7. Well done to each one of you!
I'll award 3 Sky Gifts to first place, 2 to second, and 1 to third. Feel free to give me temporary add to your palpads so I can gift the Sky Gifts to you ^_^.gif
To change things up a bit, as another option you can swap one of your Sky Gifts for a novelty drop, so first place could get 2 Sky Gifts and a novelty, second 1 Sky Gift and a novelty, and third either a Sky Gift or a novelty. Let me know if you want the novelty option, otherwise I'll just give you Sky Gifts wink.gif

Later this week I'll start up a GWSH to go with the site's 7th anniversary coin event. So it'll basically be hatch any red, pink or white Pokemon's shiny, but I'll post more about that later.

And lastly, thank you all for participating in the group! We've nearly doubled in size since the November SWSH when I started the group cat.gif I hope everyone continues to enjoy their stay here, and may the shiny luck be with you! magic.gif

Edit: Oh, and a minor note, I've changed the group's name from 'Malachite Mages, Reborn' to just 'The Malachite Mages'. I don't think it makes too much of a difference to anything :P

For the GWSH, will we need to have active shiny hunts in our shiny recorder?

Nope, they don't have to be recorded in your shine recorder. If you hatch a red/pink/white Pokemon's shiny, and then post the shiny here, I'll add it to your GWSH total ^_^.gif I'll make a post in the next day or two explaing the rules in more detail, and include a start date wink.gif

I'm just wondering, where did you got all that luck? Or where do you hide those shiny eggs because DAMN. That's really quick.

Also, I was planning on staying away from Cleffas but... NOPE. With the coins system back, I'll be hunting for those 2 pesky shinies.

I don't know why, but on three different days this SWSH I hatched two shinies in a day. dumblook.gif I'll just thank the admins, haha!

I did see some coins in my stats, hopefully they'll put out something explaining their use.
Oops I didn't see the link explaining it, good luck to all getting those coins c=

No luck getting Shiny Mr. Moon. But I did get cleffa and staryu so oh wells.

Totally mad the prize was larvitar and not snowman munchlax sad.gif

Speaking of which, I'm going to start breeding the new Lunar Larvitar for a bit, so if anyone wants/needs one I'm happy to release one for you. Likewise for Snowman Munchalx wink.gif


I might need want to take your offer with Snowman Munchlax. I really like the design.

For the GWSH, is it obligatory to post the shiny Pokemon here? Sorry, it's just that I don't actually want to have Unique Views or Views... It's kind of lame for me to say that, I was just wondering if there was some way around that rule? I mean, that way I could participate in the GWSH...

I really need that Shiny Voucher, though.
I mean, technically, one could unlock the Good Luck achievement with one of those vouchers, don't they?
Anyone knows about that? (That might be the only way I could get the achievement... sweat.gif )

Also, I released 24 level 100 Pokiis, so if you want 1, I suggest to check periodically the Safari Zone. I'm proud to say that I've released 144 level 100 Pokiis out there (6 full boxes) and each one of them have a new home.

Fair enough. If you don't want any views, maybe you could take a screen capture of the Pokemon (including the time it was hatched) and post the screencap. Otherwise posting the link to the Pokemon rather than the actual image link might work. Let me try: http://gpx.plus/info/fPWsv. I'll see if that gained my Pokemon any views after I post this wink.gif

Edit: Okay, posting the link to the Pokemon and clicking on it does not give it any view or unique views, if you're more comfortable doing that instead of posting the image. You're also more than welcome to PM it to me if you didn't want to post it here. I just want to sight everyone's GWSH Pokemon somehow to make sure they fit the requirements and were hatched in the time frame ^_^.gif

Posted by: Rookie Roo Feb 3 2016, 04:20 AM

Thanks eevee.
And yeah, please. I really need a Snowman in my life right now.

Also, mind if I do a test of my own?
http://gpx.plus/info/cAboI
Also, the GWSH hasn't started yet, right?

If it hasn't, then yikes. I just hatched a shiny Cleffa (and it's male!).
Apparently, it's one of my faster hunts: 54 egg on my 3rd day of hunting it.
And I don't know if I should be really excited right now that I just have to find another shiny Cleffa and I would have all the Living Shiny Dex entry for that Pokemon, or I should feel bad because I wouldn't have any excuse to hunt for'em and get coins faster...

And now that I mentioned that, how is everyone going with coins? And with life?
I just got back to school today and... I really don't know why I'm still here in the site when its WAAY past my sleep hours (that is if I truly intend to pay attention to my classes... sweat.gif ).

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 3 2016, 08:22 AM

I have 105 coins so far and I'm #17 on the site for coins gathered, that's exciting for me.
I'm probably on gpx more than I should be, but I tend to egg click while reading papers, and I have a lot of papers to read right now.

Posted by: eevee64 Feb 3 2016, 09:55 AM

@Rookie Roo, nah the GWSH hasn't started yet wink.gif I'll post information about it in the second half of this post.

I have 43 coins at the moment. I started shiny hunts for a few red/pink/white Pokemon I wanted to hunt, so I'm just focussing on them for the time being. I have two more days of work, then I have pretty much the rest of the month off before I move back up to uni again. So hopefully plenty of time for me to hatch some shinies, and maybe even do another Death of the World run ^_^.gif

----

GWSH info!

- will start on Friday the 5th and end Monday the 29th at midnight, server time
- running with the same theme as the GPXplus anniversary event, the goal will be to hatch as many pink, red or white Pokemon's shinies as possible!
- this means that the dex colour entry of your Pokemon has to be pink, red or white NOT the shiny Pokemon has to look pink, red or white
- it is entirely optional whether you want to participate
- the Pokemon does not have to be recorded in your shine recorder, any random pink, red or white Pokemon's shiny you hatch within the time period is acceptable
- you must post the shiny here in the group, or a link to the shiny, if you are participating in the hunt and want me to add it to your tally
- there is no sign up for the hunt, just start posting your shinies!
- the user/s at the end of the hunt who've hatched the most shinies will receive a Sky Gift prize from me (number of Sky Gifts given, and second and third place prizes will be determined after the hunt, based on participation and number of shinies hatched)


If anything is unclear or if anyone has any questions about the GWSH, feel free to ask! ^_^.gif

Posted by: Forceman Feb 3 2016, 01:58 PM

Just hatched a Sh. Igglybuff, wish it counted. DX Anyway, I'll be hunting down those theme-colored shinies. Good luck to everyone!

We have a new group member! Welcome to Shiny Dragonite grin.gif

Posted by: Reject Feb 4 2016, 11:24 PM

Hey, this is Daydream! I changed my username just a few minutes ago, haha. Might wanna reflect that in the member list.

Also, I was able to get a Shiny Cleffa the last day of SWSH! I've had a total of 5 Shiny Cleffa by now, I think. It's my lucky shiny. In fact, I just hatched one earlier today when I was hatching for coins. Too bad we couldn't take the lead at all. ;_;

I'm excited for the GWSH, though. I'm feeling pretty optimistic about it. Good luck to everyone!

Posted by: Shiny Dragonite Feb 5 2016, 02:12 AM

Hi everyone!

I may not post very often due to chronic shyness but I'm going to try!

I have hunts for Magikarp, Charmander, Porygon and Cleffa going right now for the coin event and the GWSH. I hope I get something before the end of the month. This is my first time doing more than one hunt at a time so we'll see how it goes - especially since I seem to have horrible shiny luck.


Anyway, nice to meet you all!

Posted by: eevee64 Feb 5 2016, 04:35 AM

The GWSH has started!! Good luck to everyone! grin.gif I almost forgot it was Friday today haha where has the week gone :P

I'm struggling to find the red/pink/white Pokemon I'm shiny hunting in the Shelter, so I'll probably end up just getting random ones :P I feel like making some new banners, so I'll do up a February themed Malachite Mages one this weekend cat.gif

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 5 2016, 11:31 AM

Seriously though, I feel like everybody's in the same boat of "I started a shiny hunt, but I can't find any, so let's go for random ones."
The worst is that I have an exploration task that asks for some of the shinies i'm hunting for and I can't even find their eggs in the shelter right now Dx

Posted by: eevee64 Feb 5 2016, 11:38 PM

It's sad...even with Honey+ activated it still barely finds any eggs I'm shiny hunting noes.gif I'm breeding Rufflet and Fletchling eggs at the moment, and the ones I don't claim from the Daycare are getting grabbed pretty quick as soon as they hit the Shelter.

I almost never breed anything other than for novelties, but I gave up for now and am breeding Rotom's.

Hello, and thank you for the welcome! I've never really used a forum before, so please bear with me and my lack of experience... feel free to just facepalm.gif me haha!

I haven't really been paying much attention to the events going on here... hatching red, pink, and white Pokémon, is it? None of the ones I'm currently hunting for right now fit the bill, but I guess I'll just grab some random eggs when I can't find my eggs in the shelter. It looks like I'm not the only one having trouble finding eggs in the Shelter, even with Honey+. pinch.gif

Posted by: Rookie Roo Feb 6 2016, 11:11 AM

Sweet, new members!

More people to talk to, yay!

I'm hunting for Cleffa, Flabebe White and Magikarp... But those 2 spaces were the only ones I had left. I'm also hunting for more Cherubis and Furfrous (which I have already 2 shinies, but I am too bad at the Battle system that I lose really badly and can't seem to get a single comb... *glares at Blue* Anyone has any advice?).

I hope everyone is doing ok.
I don't know if I already said it, but I am back to college and I'm DYING. Hopefully, I've been able to earn about 200 coins and I'm at #69, so I really don't want to know how many coins do the #1 has. I mean, just wow.

I also hope to get in my hands a beautiful shiny voucher. Teehee.
I'm silently rooting for everyone to get it as well. woot.gif

Posted by: Kaitou Kid Feb 6 2016, 12:06 PM

Welcome new members Shiny Dragonite and Uzii. Congrats on the shiny watchingmidnight. For the Anniversary I started hunting Cleffa, Zangoose, and Fletchling. Other then that last one been finding them been pretty easy, but Zan has almost 200 users breeding them and Clef almost 100 so my biggest issue is shelter grabs, prematures, and too lazy to click to get more shelter grabs. I have 191 coins tho, so I think I'm doing pretty decent right now.

My first shiny for the GWSH ^-^ http://r.gpx.plus/BQIFV
Also pretty sure I got the skygifts from eevee64 for the SWSH, wanted to say thanks ^-^ got 4 pokechest, 1 flame orb, 1 escape rope, and 2 honeys

Posted by: Uzii Feb 6 2016, 11:36 PM

Well I didn't expect... two shinies today.

http://r.gpx.plus/aPSFV http://r.gpx.plus/lKIBV

While this was a pleasant surprise, especially I've been planning on looking for a shiny Swirlix, I have to say I'm kinda miffed that I missed out on a Splash Shard. Really like that Water-type Arceus... shakefist.gif


On a side note, Kwarkpudding, I've been collecting Bottle Caps for the Curio Collecter achievement. If you'd like, would you like me to gift them to you after I've reached 50? oh.gif

Posted by: eevee64 Feb 6 2016, 11:51 PM

Wow, so many GWSH shinies already! Congrats to everyone who's hatched one grin.gif

No luck for me yet...ran out of Shelter grabs a little while ago, so I'm happy it's reset in 5 miniutes :P

Posted by: Shiny Dragonite Feb 7 2016, 08:40 AM

I've been finding Charmanders in abundance, especially with the help of Honey+, but everything else has been harder to come by. I've been breeding my own Porygons too.

Also, I tend to miss the large amounts of people that get on while I'm asleep so even multiplier days are a bit slow for me.

These little guy showed up in my morning hatching!
Between my goldeen hunt at 17 eggs and castform hunt at 21 eggs, I'm on a roll it seems.

I've been hunting a female shiny Furfrou for a while now, just so happened to hatch it during the GWSH grin.gif

Edit: I forgot to mention that I made a new Mages banner (the one that's in my signature). I put it in the Banners section in the main post, so anyone is welcome to use it ^_^.gif I'm going to make some more similar ones at some stage, so if anyone wants one with a specific Pokemon on it, I can make one for you happy.gif

Posted by: Forceman Feb 8 2016, 11:18 AM

Good job on the shinies, everyone! Unfortunately I'm hunting some Pokemon in low supply, Cleffa, Solrock, and Flabebe Orange. The last of those three is pretty hard on mobile, which I use a lot without Sweet Honey because the color in brackets isn't shown when adopting. Just gotta keep hatching. c=

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 8 2016, 04:57 PM

The answer is, I am ~most definitely~ on a roll. I finished my Shiny Rotom hunt today. And because castform is a normal type, I still got my shard from my shiny Rotom!

http://r.gpx.plus/MEZKV

I might run out of shinies to hunt for if I keep going at this pace~

Thanks for the new banner Eevee! I'm an Oddish lover, so I'd totally be down for an Oddish or any of it's evolutions in a banner!

Posted by: Uzii Feb 8 2016, 07:12 PM

Congrats on the shinies guys! I'm a funny one and actually don't like using the Shine Recorder, and yet since I have a huge pile of shinies I want to look for eventually, I end up just grabbing random eggs of Pokémon I'm interested in. I can't keep track of my bearings like this xD.gif

Eevee, I might take you up on that offer for a banner if you don't mind! I'll let you know what I'd like once I get some time to think about it happy.gif

Also, I don't know if I should be asking this here or not, but could you mind adding to the Trinket trading list that I'm collecting Teru Teru Shuppets? Thank you!

Posted by: Rookie Roo Feb 10 2016, 01:47 AM

I'm so happy to say that I finally got a shiny!
YAY
Even though I have a LONG way to go if I want to be in any place of the GWSH, I'm giving my best.
I wasn't actively hunting for Charmander, but oh whelp. I got the Flame Shard and with that Shard, I completed the plate... So right now I can hunt for Fairy type, Normal type and Fire type freely because I won't have any restrictions...

Furfrou, Cleffa, and any other Pokemon with those types... I'm coming for you.

Posted by: Uzii Feb 10 2016, 09:20 AM

Aaannd here's another shiny from me!

http://r.gpx.plus/ywWSV

Again, I can't say I'm 100% happy with this—I was definitely actively looking for this, but I had gotten a Shiny Inkay earlier today, so I missed out on my Insect Shard in lieu of a Dread Shard... I prefer Bug-type Arceus too. -_-2.gif Why is this happening to me... headache.gif

Posted by: eevee64 Feb 10 2016, 09:25 AM

Keep up the awesome shiny effort, everyone! For the group, there's a total of 13 GWSH shinies already grin.gif

I did some banner making! Here's your Oddish one, watchingmidnight ^_^.gif Let me know if you want anything changed.


I also did Espeon and Jolteon ones for fun:




The are all in the main post under Banners, so feel free to use any!

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 12 2016, 09:40 AM

Thanks for the banner Eevee! Already updated my signature.

No more shinies since my Sh. Rotom and my coin # ranking just keeps getting worse. Hopefully good enough to get a shiny voucher, but probably not enough for a shiny legend voucher.

Also, I'm collecting burettes specifically to get the curio collector achievement. (They fall under the general "chemistry" ones I'm collecting). But if anybody has some lying around, my collecting would go much quicker than the current one at a time I can do.

Im so, SOOO EXCITED RIGHT NOW.

Like, THE HYPE IS REAL.

I just hatched a SHINY DITTO.
That's right. A shiny Ditto.
http://gpx.plus/info/iHbIS

And I know that Ditto isn't any shiny we are hunting for the GWSH, but guys... GUYS. I was hunting it for 3 years. 3 YEARS!
The greatest thing is that it's my 23rd hatched egg. In a way, I realized how hard it is for Ditto eggs to come by, so...
I dont know, I'm just too happy for my own good. Squealing, in fact.

Anyway, good luck with the your own hunts!
I'm gonna go and throw a mini party over here.

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 13 2016, 11:54 AM

Congrats Rookie Roo!! That's really exciting. My dream "elusive" shiny is probably one of the fossil novelties.

Eevee, actually Kaitou Kid sent me a whole bunch of burettes that pushed me over the 50 needed for curio collector. Thanks though~

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Feb 13 2016, 01:07 PM

haven't found any shiny in the pink/white/red spectrum yet, but I got my Mudkip this morning. now I can get the Splash Plate and try the Arceus expedition.

Posted by: Forceman Feb 13 2016, 01:26 PM

I seem to be getting my shiny luck balanced out this month. I managed to complete an Igglybuff hunt in 6 eggs after my 7 shiny performance in the SWSH, but that was unfortunately before the GWSH started. Now I'm about 500 coins in and nothing so far.

Posted by: Kaitou Kid Feb 13 2016, 08:29 PM

Shiny Ditto oh.gif Nice! Hopefully one day I'll be able to find one too, especially now that it has a novelty.

It's kinda depressing at the moment using Sweet Honey or even Hunt Power and finding pretty much no eggs in the Shelter/Lab :P

Not nearly as much as Yuniko's luck, but I hatched this little cutiepie today.
Sometimes I wish I had the luck to hatch shinies I'm not hunting for. Every shiny I've hatched so far is a shiny I'm searching for. (which as we know is probably only 1/5 of the pokemon I end up hatching).

Not only is the Charmander female, but it hatched with such an old sprite too... I guess all that hard work paid off a little ^_^.gif

Whoa! Nice ones :j Did you manage to get Elite Clicker at the same time?

Posted by: Uzii Feb 17 2016, 01:01 AM

I did! There were so many points in time where I thought I wouldn't make it even though I was spamming the number keys like crazy, but I managed to get the achievement before server reset love.gif

Need to get some rest though, since I pulled an all-nighter doing this... sweat.gif

Posted by: eevee64 Feb 17 2016, 02:27 AM

Well done on Elite Clicker, Uzii! woot.gif The shinies make for an extra bonus...you're smashing out those GWSH shinies!

That's probably one of the toughest achievements to do. I attempted it a couple of months ago and gave up after 5 hours ^^"

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 17 2016, 07:45 AM

"Elite Clicker" is on my "do at some point in time" list, but my question is, do you give up on proper berry interactions when you go for it?
I've done both DoTW and TBD with all their required clicks, but I get those primarily from egg interactions and that is up to maybeee 15k/day if I use odd incense. If I attempted to do proper berry interactions, there's no way i'd be able to get anywhere near elite clicker.

Posted by: Uzii Feb 17 2016, 08:45 AM

Thank you! It really is difficult; I actually did some research on how to get the achievement before I actually attempted it, since my daily record before this was only 88k irritated.gif

watchingmidnight, I most definitely threw the idea of proper berry interactions out the window for this. Even though I only properly click Exploration Pokémon on a normal basis, I couldn't afford to do that when trying for this. I got the achievement with maybe an hour left before server reset, and that was with me spamming 1-5 from all users on two laptops o_O2.gif

Though I do want to mention that if you mass click a bunch of users, you will still end up getting a lot of propers even from spamming 1-5. I don't know how many times I've been surprised to find my name up on the list of "Most Proper Berry Interactions Today" while also being on the "Most Interactions Today" list as well.

But anyway, this topic here had a lot of helpful tips that I took into consideration before starting the achievement; I didn't follow everything mentioned, since I have a faster connection speed than most so I had some leeway, but it's definitely worth a look for whenever you want to go for Elite Clicker! happy.gif I haven't done DoTW yet, and I gave up on my first attempt at TBD a while ago, so I guess I have those to look forward to in the future xD.gif

Phew, I wrote a lot... sorry for the wall (?) of text walloftext.gif

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 17 2016, 12:16 PM

Wow, you got Elite clicker, but gave up on TBD. Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like getting Elite Clicker will end up be a lot harder than finishing TBD or DoTW.
Thanks for the thread! I actually was wondering if that was out there, but hadn't really spent time searching.

Now I just need to wait for a time that I can actually do it.

Edit: Got me a shiny Absol! (One I wasn't hunting for, but hatched lots of eggs for)

Edit 2: Gonna add in this shiny slowpoke instead of making a new post even though I wouldn't be doubleposting

Tried to get Elite Clicker myself, but always gave up after a few hours, also another shiny

Thanks for the link to that thread, Uzii! I never knew that you could press more than one of the number keys at a time to click faster! I feel like I've discovered something very powerful now haha. I might have to try for Elite Clicker again soon then ^^

Edit: I got my second GWSH shiny and honestly couldn't have asked for a better one teehee.gif
http://r.gpx.plus/pDeLS
It only took 1127 eggs and 1564 days crying.gif

Posted by: Uzii Feb 18 2016, 01:03 AM

Haha Elite Clicker probably is more difficult—back then I had made the mistake of starting TBD at the end of the month, so when the new explorations came out I didn't want to bother waiting to finish TBD and just dropped it in favor for the monthly explorations. xD.gif I should try to clear it again, eventually...

The number keys are definitely faster than clicking on a mouse, that's for sure x).gif If you ever do go for it, eevee, I wish you luck!!

But WOW congrats!! Shiny Winter Ninetails is so pretty love.gif Looks like all that hatching paid off clap.gif

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 24 2016, 11:41 AM

Welcome wigglytuff rocks!

Congrats on the third GWSH Shiny, Eevee.

Haven't had anymore luck myself. I went to check coin rankings for today, and at 70 coins so far I'm #103 for the day, which is crazy. That means 103 people have already hatched more eggs along with completing the scavenger hunt. I'm mostly hoping they were lazy about clicking to get more shelter picks and once I get over 60+ hatches, I'll quick rise to the top of the pack.
Edit: Turns out to be accurate, now at #36 for the day so far.

With all the Magikarp eggs I hatched during this whole event, I think it was about time I got a golden carp. xD.gif

All these carps. I'm jealous. I've hatched over 200+ Magikarp eggs in my GPX lifetime, but no shiny yet.

Got this fellow though!

Here's another Cleffa! I was hoping to get Persistent before hatching this, as I was only 21 off from that, but I'm sure I'll get scorned worse by the RNG at some point down the line. Sadly it wasn't male like I had hoped {all of my Sh. Cleffa are girls!}, but I used the name I wanted anyway.

Posted by: iuppiter Feb 26 2016, 01:35 AM

So far, no more shiny mons despite all the eggs that I've been hatching. In other news, I'm 800+ eggs deep into that buizel shiny hunt since November, and still no shiny in sight! What in the world. :'J


Posted by: Rookie Roo Feb 26 2016, 05:22 PM

Hey, Hi! wigglytuff. I hope you enjoy your stay!

http://gpx.plus/info/GwZhS

Whelp, got my third shiny of the month (the second that counts for the GWSH. I still can't believe that little surprise I got).

Right now, I have 1,638 coins and I'm aiming to 2,000 to the end of the month... I just hope I have the time to accomplish it (which I doubt, but oh well).
How is everyone else doing?

Posted by: Uzii Feb 26 2016, 05:25 PM

I... I feel kinda guilty now... like I kinda took the luck from everyone this month x_x.gif

http://r.gpx.plus/dpghS http://r.gpx.plus/rOyhS http://r.gpx.plus/BhmsP http://r.gpx.plus/cCRhS

Got all of these guys today (yes, that's a second golden carp now) while trying to bump up my coins... I mean, I did hatch almost 460 eggs today according to the stats page but... orz

If it makes anyone else feel better, I can't believe I missed out on TWO Insect Shards... one of my favorite Arceus palettes OTL

EDIT: 3rd Slugma....

Posted by: eevee64 Feb 26 2016, 09:16 PM

Wow, I'm not here for a day and there are 10 more GWSH shinies xD Well done everyone! Uzii, you are having some ridiculous shiny luck this month! o_O2.gif

Just completed today's scav hunt task which has ticked me over the 1000 coin mark. 1009 to be exact :P I'm not really aiming for any particular number of coins, I'll be happy with whatever I get...I just want the scratch cards cat.gif

Posted by: watchingmidnight Feb 26 2016, 10:50 PM

Welp, I'm ready to go back to "I've accomplished nothing" after seeing Uzii's stats.
I hit 2500 coins today, yay! But today wasn't too good of a day for hatching. Sitting at #45 for coins today, which is underpar for my normal performance. Tomorrow likely will be similar, little time to click for extra shelter grabs.

Oh whelp.

Forceman: if you think you are terrible at naming things, just know that I name Pokemon their entry dex number.
I feel so un-creative right now.

Uzii: Your shiny hatching is just insane. Keep up the good luck!

Posted by: Uzii Feb 28 2016, 03:04 PM

And yet another Shiny Slugma. One more and I'll have a full party army muahaha

After the disappointment that was the shiny wild spring cyndaquil, this at least tries to make something right. Congrats on everyones event shinies, though.

If you're still aiming to get a certain amount of coins, good luck! I'm hoping to reach 2k today happy.gif

Posted by: Uzii Feb 29 2016, 10:40 PM

With this, my full party Slugma army is complete.

http://r.gpx.plus/LuVZS

It's less than two hours until the event's over, but good luck to everyone!!

@Kwark, I think I actually saw that Shiny Spring Cyndaquil when clicking exploration Pokémon... that must've been a bummer to get irritated.gif I'm glad you managed to get a Shiny Frillish in return though!

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Mar 1 2016, 02:29 AM

I missed getting the scavenger achievment by one event. Failed to get one of the early raise a Pokemon to a certain level done. Ah well, just have to try again in April.

Posted by: eevee64 Mar 1 2016, 03:10 AM

The GWSH is over! It was great to see so many people participating in it, so a big thank you to everyone grin.gif

The winners! Not surprisingly, in first place is Uzii, who smashed everyone with 17 shinies xD.gif Second goes to watchingmidnight with 9 shinies, and third to YunikoYokai with 7! Well done and congrats to all of you woot.gif Prizes: first gets 3 Sky Gifts, second 2, and third 1. As always, if you guys are able to give me a temporary palpad add, I can gift you your prizes ^^

Now time to save up our shiny luck for a week or two until the SWSH starts :P

How did everyone's coins and scratch cards turn out?

I ended up with 1182 coins, so another legendary voucher plus for me. Also got a few Shears from the scratch cards for the new Mareep novelty, and a couple of Twinkies to put towards my Shiny Pudgy Pidgey hunting cat.gif

===
Edit: Midnight and Yuniko, I've sent you your Sky Gifts ^^

Posted by: watchingmidnight Mar 1 2016, 11:13 AM

New novelty!? Was there news about this or did you just find out from the scratch cards?

I actually didn't get any shears from my cards - or shiny pokechests (did anybody get those this time around??)

I ended at almost 2800 coins, #23, which put me right in place for a shiny voucher. I'm a little disappointed I didn't get all the way to the shiny legendary voucher, but I wasn't expecting that they'd give more than the top 20 one. Now I have to decide what to use it on. (Speaking of which, does anybody know if you can end a shiny hunt with a voucher, or nah? I'm thinking you can't, but just want to check in on that.) Actually, I'm definitely getting a shiny Unknown, since those are pretty hard to get (or Ditto now that I check).

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Mar 1 2016, 11:20 AM

I was just short of 900 coins this time around. got near 20 pokechests from the cards. a couple snowballs and other corruption items too.

Posted by: Forceman Mar 1 2016, 01:44 PM

I finished with just over 1.6k. I think I'll use my LV+ to get a Kyurem, since I got quite a few of its stones from the scratch cards. I got a ton of Corruption Orbs and Blue Stones, but no Shears. Legend sniping was fun last night, though, as well as grabbing some Unowns and other stuff from someone's mass drops.

Posted by: Kaitou Kid Mar 1 2016, 02:29 PM

Congrats Uzii, watchingmidnight , and YunikoYokai on winning the GWSH!
@ watchingmidnight, I heard you can use a shiny voucher for shiny hunts and to get the Good Luck achievement.

For coins got 1,734, so kicking myself for giving up yesterday and working on other shiny hunts instead. Still have my legend voucher from last event so doubt I'll use my new one any time soon either. Scratch cards, a few blue stones and summonables. Also a Reveal Glass needed 1 more of those, hate doing the exploration for it. Actual since I got that glass might use my vouchers to get Thundurus and Landorus to finish the kami trio since I also don't like that exploration either.

Posted by: Uzii Mar 1 2016, 05:36 PM

I'm a little late to the party, but thanks everyone! I've added you eevee happy.gif

I didn't hear about this new novelty Pokemon either—I haven't used up all my Scratch Cards yet (just one so far) so I guess I'll hope that I can see what this new Shears item looks like.

I ended with 3,704 coins at #13... had I known that #12 and above would receive a Shiny Legend Voucher Plus I would've tried harder to hit that goal x_x.gif I think I'll save this Shiny Voucher Plus for a while since I'm not sure what to use it it on yet.

Just found out from the scratch cards...you can get Shears to change a Mareep into a Sheared Mareep, which evolves into a Woolly Ampharos cat.gif There is also a new 'novelty' Vivillion form, you have to get a Love Flag from the underground ^^

I'm the same :P Still have my Legend Voucher from last event, and I'll probably end up using both to get Landorus and Thundurus's therian forms for my living dex.

Thank you eevee! Vitamins and Heart Sweets are always much needed x).gif

The Sheared Mareep sprite looks so sad, I feel bad wanting to use the Shears... does anyone know if the item disappears upon using it?

The new Vivillon form also looks really pretty—makes me wish I had a Shiny Vivillon to use it on sweat.gif Then again, I'm still trying to get all the canon Vivillon forms for the dex xD.gif

Can't wait to see what the SWSH Pokemon will be this time around!

Yeah, the Shears disappear when you use them. Though someone in the monthly community thread today said they hatched a Mareep that had Shears as a hatch item, so there looks like there is hope in getting more Shears if one needs ^^

Posted by: YunikoYokai Mar 8 2016, 03:25 PM

I'm not even sure where you get Shears. If you get then from scratch cards, I got a bit screwed XD I didn't even get any shiny pokechests!

But I've finally got my shiny Lunatone! 1,050 eggs. Damn that bloody moon! He's not a dog, but dammit, he's now called Moon Moon for all the trouble I went through! I've managed to clear up my shine recorder quite nicely so far (Lunatone now, Skitty 2 days ago, Cleffa 3 days ago, scatterbug 9 days ago). Also very close to completing my bug Bonaza too. I just need three more bugs and get their mega stones...

Edit - Ah, didn't wuite read Eevee's post. So I can get them from Mareep can I? Well, time to investigate that!

Posted by: watchingmidnight Mar 14 2016, 09:23 AM

SWSH pokes are out! One of the 'mons I voted for is in: Drifloon! So that's definitely going to be my first hunt.
How about everybody else?

Posted by: eevee64 Mar 14 2016, 09:34 AM

I don't have shinies of any of the SWSH Pokemon, so hopefully I'll be able to get at least one of each! Starting with Drifloon as well ^^

Posted by: Forceman Mar 14 2016, 01:09 PM

Of course, another low maturity Fairy type right after I complete my Pixie Plate! DX
I'm going for Togepi first anyway, haha

Posted by: DarkMoonKnight Mar 15 2016, 08:50 AM

aiming at shiny Togepi for this SWSH.

Posted by: Uzii Mar 16 2016, 12:06 AM

Good luck everyone!

I've been looking at how Malachite has been standing in the ranks, and I really hope we can pull ahead! It would be really nice if we could be the leader for once in a SWSH irritated.gif

Posted by: Rookie Roo Mar 16 2016, 02:34 AM

Whelp I also aimed for a Togepi and...

Well. Let's just say that we now have 1 more shiny for Malachites, yay!
The GIRL gave me a big surprise, I can assure you. With just 33 eggs hatched, while I'm always aiming for more than 300 if I'm going for a LOW hunt.

Onwards to Drifloon and (hopefully) I'll get Dedenne next.

Good luck everyone!

Posted by: watchingmidnight Mar 16 2016, 07:05 AM

MALACHITE REPRESENT.

Got my first Shiny in 36 eggs. Drifloon~

http://r.gpx.plus/BIaoS

Onward to Dedenne which hopefully I'll also get quickly so then I can hatch lots and lots of Togepis for the rest of the SWSH.

Posted by: eevee64 Mar 16 2016, 09:17 AM

We've currently been in the lead for 3 hours this hunt! Yay! That is more than we were in the entire January SWSH haha. Awesome to see a lot of you guys have hatched shinies already grin.gif Keep 'em coming! :P

Edit: Hatched my first SWSH Pokemon!
http://r.gpx.plus/hrXUS
On to Dedenne!

Posted by: Forceman Mar 17 2016, 05:43 PM

Could you put me down for Shiny Black Pin for trinket trading? I do still need one more Hourglass, but take me off of that. It's common enough that I should find myself with another somewhere down the line.

Also, two SWSH shinies today!

I could have had Dedenne in one egg, 1/3 chance, but I had to go for the batch hatch. Onto Drifloon!

Posted by: YunikoYokai Mar 20 2016, 12:59 PM

Well, I finished up my hunt already, but I'm so close to finishing a much bigger hunt... I only need 1 more shiny to complete my Bug Bonanza hunt*! I'm so happy to have this hunt nearly done! C'mon Scyther, be shiny soon! Then to wait for the 2 mega stones I need...

I'd contribute to an IRC if such was opened, but I don't know enough about IRC to make a new channel or whatnot.

Got my second SWSH shiny. Now it's on to Togepi's for days. Hopefully I can hatch quite a few!

Posted by: Forceman Mar 21 2016, 03:31 PM

I'll look into making a channel. As far as I know, you can join a channel of any name by doing /join #(insert name here) and it'll be a fully functioning channel, though at the moment I don't know how to set up bots. I'm active on the community IRC, so I may be able to get some help there. I'll check back later on this.

Posted by: Uzii Mar 24 2016, 04:49 PM

Great job with the shinies everyone! It looks like I used up all my luck last month, since I'm approaching 500 eggs and still no shiny Drifloon in sight irritated.gif And here I wanted to try for all 3 shinies too haha

Thanks for setting it up Forceman happy.gif I've never used an IRC before, so maybe I'll give it a try when I get some time!

Posted by: eevee64 Mar 25 2016, 08:42 AM

Thanks for organising the chat, Forceman! grin.gif I'll come visit there and add the details for it to the group's main post sometime over the weekend ^^

Still only the 1 SWSH shiny for me so far. With DotW task 11 and me being on holidays the last couple of days I haven't hatched many eggs ^^" Hopefully I'll be able to catch the last day of this current Honey+ and hatch a heap of Dedenne!

Edit:
http://r.gpx.plus/ZgcWS
Hopefully I can now squeeze in a shiny Togepi by the end of the month ^^

Posted by: Forceman Mar 25 2016, 07:52 PM

If we can get on at the same time, I can make you a mod for the channel! I wasn't very active today because of responsibilities, but I should be haunting the new channel for a few hours.

Feel free to shoot me a PM for IRC troubleshooting, anyone! I'm not very wise in the way of commands, unfortunately, but I can try to find a guide for that. I hope we can make the chat an active part of the Malachite community!

Posted by: watchingmidnight Mar 26 2016, 08:58 PM

Posted by: eevee64 Mar 27 2016, 09:01 AM

I checked out our IRC channel, and it's great! It's the first time I've ever been on an IRC but it seems straight forward :P Thanks again, Forceman! I've added a direct link to the #malachitemages channel in the main post of the group ^^

I've also now just finished the SWSH trio!

Posted by: Uzii Mar 28 2016, 05:46 PM

We managed to pull ahead of Azurite this time around! thrust.gif Great job everyone!!

Meanwhile, 1k+ Drifloon eggs and still no shiny in sight... at least I'll get the Persistent and Determined achievement if a gold balloon ever comes my way, even if it's after the SWSH ends. happy.gif

A golden balloon at egg #1020!! I wonder if I can quickly get a Dedenne during this last Honey+?

Welcome, CrazyUmbreonLady! I'm liking the Undertale avatar you've got there.

Unfortunately, activity on the IRC has been almost none so far. To get us in the habit of using it, how about we plan an official opening/IRC Q&A session for our chat? If we can get a good amount of us together in the IRC on one day and establish a use for it, I think it will be great resource for the affinity.

And it sounds like a good idea! What's our IRC, by the way?

Posted by: Forceman Mar 29 2016, 10:55 PM

#malachitemages, on the SynIRC network. There's a link in the OP.

EDIT: Here's my fourth SWSH shiny!

Unfortunately, activity on the IRC has been almost none so far. To get us in the habit of using it, how about we plan an official opening/IRC Q&A session for our chat? If we can get a good amount of us together in the IRC on one day and establish a use for it, I think it will be great resource for the affinity.

Yeah, the few times I've been on there, there has been no one else there. Though I think me being in a completely different time zone than everyone doesnt help much :\ If we can find a day/time where those interested can get on, I think that's a good idea to kick start our IRC!

What time zone is everyone anyways?

I know Eevee is in Australia.
I'm in EST of the US.

Also, got my last shiny for the SWSH.

I'm in Central (USA), so for reference, as of this post, it's 12:52 in my time zone.

EDIT: Also, yeah, I got on the chatroom a few times, and it was completely empty.

I'm in the Central time zone of USA.

Posted by: Forceman Mar 31 2016, 04:26 PM

I'm in Mountain time, which is between Pacific and Central. I think our time range isn't that bad, it's just getting on. If I'm on the all-community IRC I usually also have the Malachite IRC open as well, so if you pop on while I'm there give me a poke.

That brings us to the end of another SWSH! After the first week of the hunt it looked like we were going to get smashed, but we comfortably ended up in second place again ^^ damn Wulfs

We had a bunch of winners this month for hatching the most SWSH shinies in the group! There is a three way tie for first place with Kwarkpudding, D E A N and watchingmidnight all hatching 5 shinies each! Congrats grin.gif Equal second place is Spyessa and Forceman with 4 shinies, and in third is Uzii and myself with 3 shinies! Well done everyone!

Prizes, same drill as normal: 3 Sky Gifts for first, 2 for second and 1 for third, and temporarily add me so I can gift them to you magic.gif Good thing I have a heap of trinkets for Sky Gifting this month hehe

Congratulations to the folks who won!

Anyways, how frequent are these SWSHs?

Usually every other month and usually only for the last 2-3 weeks, for more information on the SWSHs and other site related questions it would help you greatly to read or at the vary least skim the http://gpx.plus/help.

Good job everyone! Hopefully next time around the Wulfs aren't so strong.

Hi! Thanks for letting me join! smile.gif

Just added you eevee! Also Hi to every new member since I last posted! happy.gif

What does everyone want to do this month for a group event?

- Group Wide Shiny Hunt: we can decide on a theme later if we choose this. There's no Hanukkah or Anniversary coin events to tie it in with this time haha

- Dress Up Contest: like the site wide dress up contests we've had in the past. Dress up any Pokemon however you like! To try and keep the entries anonymous, those participating would PM their dressed up Pokemon to me, and then I'll put the dressed up Pokemons' images (not linked) all in a poll for people to vote on.

- Art Contest: like the egg, bauble and kite decorating contests the site has held in the past. Would pretty much be the same process as the dress up contest. We can decide what we'll be decorating/colouring if this option gets chosen.

Feel free to suggest anything else!

I'll add a poll to the group so everyone can vote on what they'd like to do grin.gif

Thanks for the skygifts Eevee cat.gif

Welcome to the group Alexg!

As for group events, the only one I'd probably participate in is a GWSH, so I voted for that.

Also, for anybody who was on IRC this weekend, sorry for making it look like I was around - accidentally left it up on my office computer, whoops.

Posted by: eevee64 Apr 5 2016, 02:17 AM

Welcome to our newest member, i hate everyone! grin.gif

Posted by: CrazyUmbreonLady Apr 6 2016, 03:46 PM

I feel that an art contest would be the most fun, but a group wide Shiny hunt could give the participants prizes and bragging rights if they succeed in getting a Shiny.

Posted by: eevee64 Apr 8 2016, 08:57 AM

I'll close the group poll after reset today (Friday), so if you haven't voted for the group event yet, get in quick! ^_^.gif

Posted by: Forceman Apr 8 2016, 10:56 AM

The poll just so happens to be at 413 right now. My inner, not caught up Homestuck is tingling.

Posted by: eevee64 Apr 8 2016, 11:29 PM

Alrighty, looks like a group wide shiny hunt wins! Does any one have any suggestions for a GWSH theme?

Posted by: Uzii Apr 9 2016, 10:20 PM

Darn, I missed the poll! And I just added you, eevee!

Hmm, I'm going to be uncreative and suggest something spring/eastery... so maybe some Grass or Normal types? There's been an awful lot of rain where I am, so maybe Water... a mix of all of them? sweat.gif

Sky Gift sent! ^^

I was thinking along similar lines for the GWSH. I was thinking of Pokemon like Buneary, Bunnelby, Exeggcute, Spring/Autumn Deerling (it's Autumn here :P), but I think more people would participate if it was more generic. So I like the idea of a Grass and Normal types for Spring and Easter, and then Water as something more Autumn :P

Does anyone have any objections to a Grass/Normal/Water GWSH, or have any more suggestions? I'd like to start the hunt in the next couple of days to give everyone plenty of shiny hunting time ^^

Posted by: eevee64 Apr 12 2016, 07:41 AM

Okay! The Group Wide Shiny Hunt will start at reset today (the 12th) and run until the end of the month. The theme is to hatch as many Grass, Normal or Water typed shinies as you can!

Remember to post your shinies, or a link to your shiny, here in the group if you want me to count it wink.gif You also don't have to have it recorded in your Shine Recorder, as long as it's Grass, Normal or Water type (dual typings are fine) and hatched within the time period. The full info on our GWSHs is now at the top of the main post, for any new members to read ^^

Good luck everyone! grin.gif

Posted by: CrazyUmbreonLady Apr 12 2016, 08:45 PM

Good thing I already have a Piplup hunt going. To everyone else, the best of luck to all of you!

Posted by: eevee64 Apr 12 2016, 11:10 PM

The GWSH has started! grin.gif

I currently have Cherrim and Rufflet hunts going on. I might cancel a couple of my other hunts to start some more Grass/Normal/Water ones ^^

Posted by: Uzii Apr 15 2016, 07:34 AM

After a month or two of frustration from my breeding pair, I've finally gotten this wonderful plant love.gif
http://r.gpx.plus/LzmBS

Can't wait to see everyone else's shinies, if you decide to participate!

Posted by: Rookie Roo Apr 16 2016, 10:16 AM

Oh my. I've been so out of this group lately.
Sorry, life got in the way.

Anyway, I might skip this month's GWSH. After all, I'd like to finish some hunts myself and clear some space in my Shine Recorder. Good luck to everyone out there searching for shinies!

Also, welcome to the group, new members!

All in all, I think that this month will be slow for me, so yeah.

A GWSH shiny for me too! Also another birb for my shiny pet collection cat.gif

Got a cute Shiny Sentret for the GWSH. I don't expect to do too well this time around as I'm pretty busy and not spending too much GPX time though.

Posted by: Rookie Roo Apr 20 2016, 05:27 PM

Apparently, I managed to hatch a Shiny Litleo (and I still have to find a male Shiny one, but oh well) and noticed that it has the Normal type.
So I guess that I can enter the hunt, though I don't think I'll be able to find any other one sooner.

Posted by: Uzii Apr 25 2016, 03:54 PM

Completely forgot to post this one when I hatched her ;;

http://r.gpx.plus/KlmeS


I think this one'll be my last shiny for the GWSH—it seems like this month is the time when things are getting busy and hard for everyone. I hope you all manages to make it through successfully!! srsbsns.gif
