At this point, I still remain unconvinced that shinies outside of the free Gyarados in GSC/HGSS aren't all an elaborate hoax, and that they actually exist.

Good morning Everyone!

I just read through the previous page and saw that we were, for a while, talking about the funny "what-if" for a Nesting Doll novelty. Truth be told? I LOVE that idea!! lol.gif Seriously though, I like the idea of a really tough Pokemon needing massive amounts of clicks to hatch. Makes one really work for it, eh? What if... the Pokemon was different for everyone? And, what if, it actually did hatch shinies, but the Pokemon are always different and once someone got a specific shiny Pokemon from the Nesting Doll, it removed that Pokemon as a possibility from everyone else? It should definitely cost a lot of prize points. 500 or 1,000. It would definitely force those vying for it to be more active and gamble with the weekly Pokehunts.

And if the talk was about random shinies in game... I really don't know what that is like. I found ONE shiny in all the time I've played the DS Pokemon games. I've been playing Ultra Sun now for several months (I think going into years now) and haven't found one freaking shiny. GPX is nicer with shinies then Nintendo. *sad sigh* I'd love to do trades for shiny Pokemon (and did a while back with a fellow GPXer love.gif) in game, but most of them want either a legendary or a shiny legendary in return. It's hard to find "down to earth" traders in the GTS system (if I'm naming that correctly). With this said, my daughter caught 2 shinies in the same game a while back. I didn't speak to her for about 3 days. -_-2.gif

Another Pokemon related tidbit... and even a GPX Pokemon tidbit... I'm on my first run (whaaaaaaaaaaaa??????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) of this one exploration and found my Charmander feeling quite poisoned. So if anyone happens by him, if you have a sweet berry (Pecha) in your pocket... we'd so appreciate it. *super hugs*

I could wonder trade them, yeah, I have a few other duplicates like Audino or Illumise.

@Mamanator, Oh I'm not talking about random shinies, I'm talking about shinies you actually hunt for. Like, I don't dare to try to hunt in games previous to gen VI (except for Celebi in Crystal) because the odds are much lower and it's difficult to complete your pokédex now because the GTS has been disabled. But GEN VI and GEN VII shinies are very simple to hunt for if you have your shiny charm AND actually have the time and patience to do it.
The normal odds to find a shiny in those gens are ~1/4018, they rise to ~1/1366 with the shiny charm, and then, depending on the method you use to hunt they can get much higher. In XY, when you hunt in the friend safari, you don't even need the shiny charm, the chance to find a shiny is ~1/512. In gen USUM, if you use the SOS method, the chance to find a shiny after a chain of 31 encounters (with shiny charm) is ~1/273.

As you see, the odds are very high, although you need some preparation, time and patience. Because sometimes you find a shiny after, say, 20 encounters, and other times it takes you 900 (or more).

When I said I never get the pokemon I hunt for in ORAS and XY it's because I use the DexNav, Horde and Friend Safari methods for hunting and most of the times I end up with one of the other pokemon available instead of the one I was hunting for grin.gif

(sorry for the long post)

edit: OH MY GOD shiny Nidoran F, I actually got one I wanted. After 420 hordes (blaze it lol). I'm happy about this little pink baby <3

On the topic: I found some shinies on the safari back then too. And released some myself, at least I recall releasing a shiny Charizard and some other(s). The reason? Back then the megas hadn't been released yet and I wasn't focusing into getting a shiny living dex so I released my duplicates to make someone else's day. Now I keep my dupes to give away when I feel like doing it idk.

Also, why do I keep getting she shinies I absolutely do not want in ORAS or XY? Gosh darn it! I was hunting a shiny skitty in Oras yesterday and guess what? I ended up with ANOTHER shiny Taillow. Now I have 2 sh. Taillows and 2 shiny Swellows. Very funny. I'm hunting shiny Nidoran F/M in XY today. If I find another shiny Stunky I swear I'll kill it.


Reminds me of the time I found 4 shiny braixen in a fire safari looking for shiny slugma. I gave one to a friend in my dorm hall, one to the safari owner, kept one for myself, and then wonder traded the last one because I was just so angry at its continued existence.

Also just found out that my Rarity 9 Voltorb Grenade was offered a Rarity 8 Immortality Helmet. Don't try to pull the wool over people's eyes, folks, the Big Book can and will rat you out.


I wasn't that offer, but I often offer the highest level trinket I can find that says people don't have it already, or I'll offer like a rarity 6 holiday trinket for a rarity 7 standard one and so on. Do you consider that trying to pull the wool over peoples eyes? Honestly I rarely look at the trade value and just look at do I have the offer or not.

Did make an offer on that voltorb thing now tho ;p

I'm so close to having all the T3 trinkets. I just need Creepy Crustle Art, Love for Gardevoir Print, and Easter Egg garland. I have all the 1 and 2 trinkets. grin.gif

My Slugma hunt is at 633 eggs and counting. Helppppppppppppppp!!!

I can't wait for the SWSH, though! I'm not going to screw this one up...I hope. Still combing the Shelter for a Poipole.

Wondering...should I buy two three extra Necrozma vouchers for when the Dusk Mane/Dawn Wings/Ultra forms are released?

Also please help defrost this boi

Yes. Yes, you should. I have two waiting for that to happen. {And 4 extra Genesect, if'n Disc-form are ever released}

Oh man I didn't think about hoarding Genesect or Necrozma, but that's not a bad idea. Off to the prize shop I go!

Well, I'm not really expecting Disc-Form Genesect to ever be released, since if it was going to happen, it would have likely been done ages ago. But I'm keeping my spares, because if I DON'T, the second I release them, we would get the announcement "Disc Form Genesect can now be made." Of course, you'd need to FIND the aforementioned discs, but ...

Off to the Prize Shop I go as well [again], I suppose! Honestly didn't think of buying extra Necrozma Vouchers, good idea. I just got 1 for the base Dex entry and didn't consider anything further.

I hope it'll be available some other way than Prize+ eventually, though. I mean, I don't really have any other use for the 500+ PP I have left, but stilllllllll.

You make me wonder how many PP I'd have if I didn't take like a 2-3 year break, lol.

I don't think I have enough legendary eggs in my party, guys. Good thing we've got the multiplier XD

Start hatching for a good Poke Hunt entry, if you haven't already? The Prize+ items say they're available until 01-12 and the Poke Hunt ends tonight.

I'm looking forward to the sign-up phase, I'm curious to see what we'll be hunting.

Another thing I'm happy/excited about is that I found subtitles for this one anime about parakeets (believe they're called "budgies" in some areas). Been wanting to watch it for a while. I can understand quite a bit of what they're saying but I still prefer to watch things subbed out of habit.

Probably...a lot, lol. And same, I've been snapping up any Nihilego Egg I've been seeing recently. Trying to speed through my monthly explos before the SWSH starts, too.

@Lemonado Girl : Prize+ will come around again, don't worry! It's a popular +, and there's no rush to complete the Pokedex on this site.

I've gotten 1st once so far. Heck if I remember which it was, though. I know IVs, rarity, and shininess matter. Starting to suspect other factors may play into it as well. Oh well, they seem to be weekly regardless of other site events so there's plenty of time to experiment and see what works.

I think relative rarity also matters. As in, not what the Pokedex says, but how many people are breeding and donating them the week of the hunt. Base forms of novelties seem to often score lower than other Pokemon of the same dex rarity.

Evolution status also counts. A fully evolved Pokemon will score higher than its base form. However, form changes and Mega Evolutions don't count for this.

Based on my own experience, IVs are the most important factor by far. IVs over 140 are almost a guaranteed first place for a fully evolved Pokemon.

I wanted to add a few more factors:
  • Gender: if it's not 50% either way, then the rarer gender can score higher
  • Egg steps: an Eeveelution might do better than an evolved starter due to more egg steps required
  • Order of typing: if a Pokemon has the Poke Hunt type as its secondary type, it tends to perform worse (i.e. Deino in dragon hunts)
