That would be Mr Dalliard's Fried Gold Behemoustache.

Just out of curiosity, how do you know that one is the longest?

Uh, you try and find another hunt anywhere even close to 3k. I know of it because it was a SWSH shiny (and of course it was at the top of the most eggs list).

I found one that is longer if you still care. It's andy021156 's Hawlucha and 3148 eggs is way too many eggs to hatch... even if it was over 2 and a half years.

In terms of length of time or amount of eggs?



If it's the former, I'm curious to see if there are any contenders for this guy that I just hatched a few minutes ago.

2,110 days, or 5.8 years.

Damn, I've never seen that one before! Kind of a pity that the longest isn't 3000 eggs exactly anymore, but still, that's a new record oh.gif

Came on to look for a breeding request thread and saw this interesting topic.
After coming back from a long absence and completing an old hunt, I expected to take the crown with this guy!



But Swizzle's got me beat by, like, a lot. Congrats on the shiny hunt completion!

Please consider breeding Tauros to help me with my shiny hunt. Thank you so much!

I punched in at 1,210 eggs for a Furfrou, over six months. It doesn't hit the 3,000 record but it's a pretty painful process.

On the complete flip-side, there was the time I got a Nidoran F on the same day as an Elekid - in seven egg and 89 eggs - which isn't half bad for shinies.

And even more than that, the VERY FIRST Aloan Meowth I picked up was a Shiny, even if it wasn't a Shiny Hunt.

My longest hunt, in terms of time, I guess would be my shiny Florges at 589 days and in terms of eggs hatched, it would be my shiny Azumarill at 960 eggs. Although my Duskull hunt (still ongoing from Sep 2015 at 1120 eggs) beats both in terms of eggs hatched and time taken.

My longest hunt in terms of eggs is Skitty at 871 (hatched in 54 weeks), in terms of time is my still in progress EB hunt started Feb 1/13... though admittedly still under 400 eggs in that time xD

Crazy some hunts go into the thousands o_o

Well, I've still not hatched it yet, but on the 15th I'll have been hunting Winter Vulpix for 4 years, currently on egg number 698 with long breaks through-out. Lol. Not as long as some hunts in either way but thought it'd be fun to throw out there.

If anyone has found a longer one (time-wise) than a hunt I finished the other day I'll be impressed

Since it actually hasn't been mentioned yet, the longest hunt we know of today is Tyranisuar's Kingler:
QUOTE
This Pokémon was egg #3228 in Tyranisaur's 549-day shiny race against Neferit started on October 1st, 2016.
This topic has been discussed fairly often in the Discord server and while despite my confident assertion eight years ago, we can't know for sure that it's the longest, no other claimants have come up in a while. So we're pretty sure it is the longest, right now.

As far as I can tell the top three is currently
  1. Tyranisaur's Sh. Kingler in 3228 eggs
  2. andy021156's Sh. Hawlucha in 3148 eggs
  3. Venusaur King's Luciana in 3087 eggs
Blemmi's Behemoustache is 4th, and I think those are the only hunts ever to crack 3000. There are a good number of hunts that have reached the 2000s which you can find on various SWSH pages.

Another fact, Luciana was never the longest hunt ever, since it was hatched after Sh. Hawlucha, but the other three each did become the longest hunt ever when they were hatched!
