    On another note, I haven't been keeping track of my resets, but I'd say that since I've been SRing virtually all day, that I'm at about 1500-2000 by now. You will be mine, shiny Volcarona!
    Wow! I'm doing the exact same thing, and am currently at 1158 SRs. This is the fist time I've tried to soft reset, and I'm still kind of getting used to it. The thing that I don't understand though is that I've seen people saying that they've gotten a shiny in under 500 SRs! I've been doing this for about a week now!

    Don't give up! I got a shiny Charmander in just 3 SRs on SoulSilver, but it took me months to get my shiny Shaymin on Platinum!

    As for my other shiny SRing attempts that I switch between... No luck at all. Might try for Ho-Oh or Giratina again later, though. I'm really determined to get some more shinies before X and Y come out.

    I've SR'ed a few times for females (I used a copy of Pearl to get females for all three Sinnoh starters, which took over an hour in total), but shinies? No way, sir, I'd rather encounter them in the wild.

    That being said, I was pretty lucky in both XD and Platinum to get a female Eevee without SR.

    Heh, it seems like I've stopped SRing completely since I created this thread! ;o; I might just go back to Volcarona... :D

    Since I encountered Latios in the Dreamyard, I've been resetting for him. So far, I've only reset 15 times and gotten nothing. I don't know how often I'll do this as I'm also hunting a shiny Elekid but I think I'll try and reset at least a few times a day. (Continual resetting is mind numbing.)

    Currently doing this in W2 for a shiny Snivy. Never had a shiny starter before, so I figured 'what the hell.' xD I'm on SR #20... hopefully it'll pop up relatively soon (i.e. weeks/days rather than months xD).

    I'm not usually patient enough to even consider SRing for Shinies, but I have done so for a few Pokemon in the past. The first hunt I can recall is Bulbasaur in FireRed which I gave up on after stumbling upon a normal-coloured one with almost perfect IVs across the board, so I chose to raise that one. I also SR'd for a Shiny Latias from the Soul Dew event on SoulSilver, but my patience got the better of me on that occasion. However, I have always dreamed of having a Shiny Suicune on Pokemon Crystal, so I tried my luck with a hunt recently. It took many hundreds of resets to actually find one, but I ran out of Poke Balls to catch it with when it eventually appeared and I had to knock it out. I gave up for a few days before starting my hunt for another one, and a few weeks later I managed to find and successfully catch it!

    I usually do a International (jap version) parent with own parent when I create eggs.

    I have over 600 hours on my save file which I'd say is 400hours of just making eggs. I average about 30 hatches an hour (seriously if anyone can explain a fast none cheat hatch method I'd love to know it). I've had 1 shiny hatch and that was ironically not on a proper bred but just a DWF I was trying to quick bred for a friend and had no good stats. I usually change my shiny target if I happen to get a 4 maxed 31 IV right ability egg hatch and move onto the next project (I have almost 2 filed boxes of near flawless hatched non shinys).

    Shiny topics where people claim to have do 800 eggs in a day annoy me no end.
