1st day of Shiny Unown hunting: No luck so far. Many encounters but no shiny... bummer.
Keep going PM! I know you can do it! you just need enough motivation! Many people have been finding RE shinies (and a few SR shinies) like crazy lately back at Serebii...what's that not to be you too! Keep going!!! It may take some time but it'll be totally worth it after! Also, can I just say...PM, you did just post a one-liner, which is against club rules...you may be co-owner, but you still have to obide by the rules, it's no different for me too, we have to set a good example to members...so please don't do that again OK? Good Luck guys!
Im soft resetting for a shiny kabuto. After four hours of no luck, I restarted and saved it for later. Im also looking for a ditto in any language other than english. I also have a VERY convoluted plan to get a shiny manaphy, but that requires beating pkmn ranger, and i just dont have the patience.
Ah nice! A Kabuto! That's my favorite pokemon! Good Luck finding one! I've been SO busy with coursework lately, I can't remember the last time I played my DS! So I'm gonna start hunting again today, my work is finished. Good Luck guys!
Day...4? of shiny unown hunting. Have been saving the battery on my DSi (:D) so havn't done it in a while. Around encounter 125 so only 7875 more to go! (1/8000 chance) wish me luck!!! Thinking of SRing for a shiny lapras next week.
Ha...I hate to break it to you PM but you're not gurranteed a shiny after 8192 encounters! It's a 1/8192 chance each time you encounter a pokemon! Think of it like this - you go in to a room (a very big one!) and are blind-folded. Everyone in that room is dressed in white except one, who's dressed in red. There are 8192 people in that room altogether (excluding you), and you have to point at the red person...you don't know where he his...but that's the challenge. Say you point in a random direction and the person you point at is dressed in white (which is most likely to happen), that person doesn't then leave the room and the count is now 8191...no, that person stays in the room and all the people mix around a bit (to make everything totally random again)...and you pick again, you keep doing this until you find the red person. Shinies are just like this, each pokemon you see has a 1/8192 chance of being shiny, and when you see a pokemon...that doesn't decrease the chances down to 1/8191, 1/8190, 1/8189 ect ect...it stays forever at 1/8192, the only reason why people tend to find shinies after doing about 8000 encounters, SR's ect, is simply to do with the law of averages...the more pokemon you see, the more likely you are to find a shiny...simple as that. And day 4?! On average a shiny hunter should be getting at least 200-300 encounters done a day, at the rate your going at...you won't be finding a shiny anytime soon I'm afraid unless you're really lucky! Good Luck Guys!
well ive given up on that until at least the start of the summer holidays (:D) and turned my attention to SRing for a shiny kabuto, lilleep and Lapras. This is my first time SRing so wish me luck!!

Good Luck PM on the Kabuto, Lapras and Lileep!
Thanks Synthesis! I have no more legendaries to SR so im sad :(. Oh well thats my own falut! Anywho, i found this video on youtube a few days ago see what you think. I was pretty suspicious about ALL of his pokemon being shiny plus the *uhum* "random" shiny psyduck encounter. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4AgrS3Jobs
I'll watch it later, kind of busy now. I love watching some of the videos on youtube. Oh and I set up an account the other day too!
