Darmanitan Shiny hunting

I've been a Shiny hunter for many years now, but I generally don't see a lot of talk about Shiny hunting going on around here. So yeah- as the link in my signature indicates, I got 203 Shinies to my name (though in all fairness, the Haxorus and Garchomp are the guaranteed Shinies from Black 2- I count those but not the Red Gyarados because unlike the Red Gyarados, you had to work for these). Latest of which is a Shiny Gliscor I caught as a Gligar in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness not 24 hours ago. I'm particularly proud of this one- my Rock Poké Spot hunt went on for three years (though I did take my fair share of breaks). In fact, had it not happened until the 25th of this month, it'd be three years to the date. It took me 11,211 wild encounters and 1,230 Munchlax encounters, and it also took me a while before I learned that you could soft reset for Poké Spot encounters (the trick is to save the game just one step before the Spot Monitor goes off- tricky to pull off, but it really accelerates the process).



Of course, there's stories behind most of my other Shinies as well, but I'll get into them another time. For now, anyone who wants to talk Shiny hunting, this is the place for it. Me, personally, I'm not sure what my next hunt will be. Giving consideration to Minior, but not sure just yet.

Will you be SOS chaining the Minior? May I suggest a Smeargle with Self-Destruct and Imprison?

I'd be considering it, except Minior can't call for help. And if it could, I already have a level 100 Damp Parasect with False Swipe that I would use- I'm actually considering breeding for the Shiny Minior, using any of my 7 EV trained Minior. I actually used that Parasect to catch the various different Minior I needed for that breeding project.

>Shiny hunting
Safari Hunting got me Pascal the Dustox (as a cascoon but still), but it also got me 4 shiny Braixen when I was going for shiny Slugma.

I'm considering doing the Karp trick to get myself a golden Stufful, that does work in SuMo, right?

The Karp trick works, but only for 50/50 gender ratios. No idea if Stufful's in that group or no.

I generally don't Shiny Hunt, but I did do it twice in my Moon File when I got to Ula'Ula for the ifrst time.

13000 Eggs for a Shiny Cutiefly and 4000 Eggs for 3IV (with 8 attack cri) Adamant Shiny Minior

and honestly that first one has really made me never want to shiny hunt again, even with karp trick

If I do feel like ever doing it again though, I am definitely going with either Morelull or Mareanie because they are amazing


Oh yeah I used to do a Shiny Surskit Breeding every Gen since Emerald but I haven't done it in SM yet

I got a Shiny Salandit today after 77 SOS encounters. And it's a female, too! Male Cute Charm Sylveon was a huge help with this.

I'm going to attempt chain breeding to get a shiny Mimikyu for my Moon playthrough. I finally got a Destiny Knot.

Immense respect for the dedication it took to get that XD gligar. My most recent shiny was a gold Geodude from Mt. Moon on my crystal version.

So, in order to try and free up some space on my New Nintendo 3DS XL's SD card, I bought a physical copy of Pokémon Y, and once I get it, I will be deleting the digital copy I downloaded. As this means my old save file is gonna be erased as well, I decided to try for one last Shiny in it- Goomy. Via Poké Radar. I've never had any success with Poké Radar chaining in Gen VI, and I want to give it a shot before I lose the only Gen VI save file on which I actually have the Poké Radar. But yeah, I've tried chaining for Shinies before, only success was a Shiny Carnivine on my birthday several years ago- and I was trying for Goomy. Carnivine came from a non-sparkling patch as I was trying to start up a new chain!

So I've been foraying into the land of RNG manipulation on my copy of Emerald, and I'm pleased that I've gotten some results~

This morning, after a few attempts, Groudon shined for me! It is my second RNG shiny after my Feebas that I had bred last week. It feels so good to figure this out man!

Still on the hunt for a shiny spinarak egg. though that project's been on again-off again between trying to complete the Hoenn dex and other such distractions.

Are Shinies from Dream Radar even possible? I never did look into that.

I've taken a look, it seems it's not possible to obtain shinies through dream radar. which is both a shame and not a shame really - imagine how long that would take!

Yeah, I get it. It'd be cool for it to be possible, but definitely not the most efficient option for Shiny hunting. Of course, this from the guy who spent almost three years Shiny hunting in XD.

The hunt in Y has been put on hold, by the way- my new copy arrived, and I'm doing a Nuzlocke in it. And currently on my team is a male Combee. Very interested to see just how long he'll last.

A long while ago, my stubborn ass resolved to get a shiny Stufful. About 650 hatches later, no luck, and my focus drifted away. Today I decided to free up the file and do a half dragon half dark prebuilt team run. While breeding the mons...

This happened.

I literally jumped out of my chair I was so hype. Adamant Sheer Force, too-could not have asked for better without getting into actual IV breeding which I'm not equipped for. Everybody, say hello to the first Alola-born Shiny I actually got my hands on, Iroh the Jasmine Druddigon.
