Ekans after 1542 Encounters, Phase 1 for Mareep.
Happy with the outcome as Arbok has a very nice Shiny Sprite in HGSS. Also ended a 30k+ drought
>What was your first ever random shiny encounter?
Shiny Golbat in Pokémon Ruby, found at the Sky Pillar. Sadly no longer have it.

>>48165280
If you have a dead battery on Ruby/Sapphire or Emerald with/without a dead battery shinies will only appear on certain 'frames'. FR/LG do not suffer from this as they lack an in game clock.

>>48166157
>I'm a shitholefag.
Well hopefully that means you're not in lockdown atm.
Team sounds good, Drifloon is a hunt I really want to do. Not sure if you know but with a GBA insert it's possible to hunt Gengar outright.
>>
>>48166304
Depends, if you're speeding up the emulator it's not legit, if you're SRing using a method that is one simple click instead of L+R+STR+SEL it's a bit iffy but not a huge advantage.
Are you hunting on emulators for any particular reason?
>>
>>48166319
So far nothing mentioned about another lockdown and hopefully it would stay that way. If they went for it, I have a games backlog to keep me coping.
About that GBA, IIRC you have to get the national dex first. That's why I rolled it out + luckly I have another DS from gen4 days so I don't have a problem with Genger.
>>
>>48166331
tl;dr: don't have the games anymore, but thinking about buying.

sorry for the blog: i had the pokemon black back 2 in the 2013 with more then 400 hours put in it really into the breading and badge system from the game, i even remember that i got the "defeat the elite with 1 pokemon" with my Crobat Maya lvl 100, never got a shiny in my copy even with the charm + masuda method, tried catching a wild zubat 2k+ and egg magikarp 1k+, but never got it, but sold it because i need the money at the time, so after in 2018 i bought a pkm diamond and months after sold it too for the same reasons. was studying at the time and was really broke. Now that i got a job i'm thinking in buying a original black 2 again to play and shiny hunt in it, but is really rare to find in a legit or cheap copy here in brazil. I just one console that is the DSi XL from 2011 so the DS ones are the only i can get original. I think Black2 or White2 are the best, i wanted a HGSS but are really rare and expensives.

i think that if you're using the normal games then that's not good, but if it's something like clover or touhoumon then that's fine. if a hack ends up on a cartridge like with blaze black/volt white 2 then i think that's fine as well.

if you're speeding up the process in any way then it kinda defeats the purpose for many people, but you do you. i'm mainly playing on emulator for gens 1-5 as well, just because it's more comfortable for me, and i try not to use speedups or other emulator functions at all. at the end of the day i'd still think my shinies are legit, just because of the fact that i'm playing for myself only and i make my own rules i guess

Don’t give up chikoritabro, other chikorita guy here and I actually encountered my first team member this morning. I’m living the NEET life atm so I’ve basically been SRing for like 8-9 hours a day every day while watching shows/movies. Gonna take it easy for a while though and just play the game as normal until I decide what I want my next team member to be.

Also, does anyone know if theres any apps for iOS that can be used to collage pictures together? Feel like I’m gonna be needing it eventually and using photoshop is a pain in the ass
>>
>>48166439
That's fair anon, if you are able to track down a cheap copy of BW2 and possibly a cheap old 3ds/2ds you can easily transfer any progress from emulator hunting on it. Prices are probably going to drop a bit more over the next year or two so it might be worth just playing on your emulator until the right copy comes up.
>>
>>48170915
Thank you fellow ChikaChad, nice Sentret!
The shiny Ekans earlier was mine, about 3400 resets in for a Mareep Phase 2 atm.
Whare you watching? Any recommendations?
Finally not sure about IOS, might be worth just sending them all to your PC and using something like paint.net, very easy to create images using that program.
>>
>>48170982
I’ve spent a good chunk of time listening to that chris chan comprehensive documentary cause it’s good background noise kek, in the middle of watching the first season of ‘Channel Zero’ which is a horror anthology series based off creepy pastas, the first season being based on candle cove. it’s absolutely shit, but the monster design is pretty cool

Mareep is a really nice shiny, one of the best probably. I’m also a fan of shiny Arbok, I think the yellow is really nice plus snakes are cool. You going to use Ekans on your team since you have it or just box her?

kek, for ten years I honestly thought he was dead before all that stuff went down a month ago. Crazy life story.
I think I'll keep her in my party, she's already an Arbok now and I used her as my lead against Buggsy, sadly she doesn't have intimidate.
In about 22 year of playing Pokémon I don't think I've ever used Arbok so now's a good time to start.
Luckily I hadn't planned out my entire team yet so I can fit her in, so far all I have is Chikorita, Mareep, Arbok, Skarmory and probably Dunsparce, the rest I'll work out today.

Sounds good, all three of those are great shinies.
For Shuckle are you referring to the gift one you get?

Does anyone know exactly how the headbutt mechanics work in HGSS?
I've read certain trees have much higher odds of certain Pokémon, but I can't determine if these trees are random (based on trainer I.D. etc) or if they're the same for everybody.

I have never intentionally shiny hunt before, only ran into one by random in emerald. I wanna start doing so for a SS run, how would I go about this? wanna at least start off by getting a shiny starter
>>
>>48172158
Good choice.
It's quite simple really, just save in front of Machine you choose your Starter from in Elm's Lab.
Then open the machine, check to see if any of the Starters are shiny and if they're not soft-reset and do it again. HGSS are the only games where the Starters sprite will be shiny outside of battle so it's widely regarded as the go to hunt for people who want to start hunting.

Chain hunting Chansey in Sword and Shield racking up EXP for various legendaries and shinies.

My last shiny was Regigigas which I finally caught last night with a beast ball.

My first ever random shiny encounter was in a rom hack and not even a really good one at that.

>>48174455
A beast ball? How the hell did you pull that off? When I found mine I threw like 80 timer balls at it and had to give up and master ball because I was worried it was gonna struggle.

>>48174464
The one in Sword and Shield has 100% catch rate when you defeat it so you can use whatever ball you want. A beast ball is near impossible to use on a legendary in any other circumstance.

>>48165280
It's not rigged but definitely the hardest way to hunt (excluding shit like 1% encounters) due to the 1/8000 encounter rate and 0 ways of reducing it. I did it for a slowpoke and it took me two weeks and about 12k encounters in Leaf Green. If you desperately want a gen 3 shiny, get ruby/sapphire/emerald and learn how to RNG abuse, otherwise if you can avoid it i'd recommend just doing it on any other game where your target can be caught/bred and just use any of the available methods to improve your odds like the shiny charm, masuda method, chain fishing, friend safari, etc etc
>>
>>48165231
>What are you hunting?/How are you hunting it
No current hunts, i've been working on my gen 6 living dex/ribbons, but i'm tempted to try another hunt while i'm here due to the massively improved shiny odds
>What was your last shiny?
Shiny flabebe (yellow flower), got it before reaching the second gym when I was hunting for a white flower flabebe, definitely reignited my hope in finding a shiny after 0 random shiny encounters during the last ~10 playthroughs i've done to work on my living dex
>What was your first ever random shiny encounter?
I believe it was a shiny patrat in Black, although sadly I no longer have it for some reason, must have been left behind at some point when transferring up to gen 6
>>
>>48174572
Soulsilver, route 32. The funny thing is that before I started, I SR'd for a shiny starter around ~100 resets I found a shiny cyndaquil but accidently SR'd over it. Not even 50 resets later and I found a shiny totodile. This is my first time attempting a pre gen 6 shiny run and I have NEVER had a hunt this long.

Don’t do it in gen3 games because the RNGs are fucked.
Never shiny breed in gen3 , 4 and 5 “legitimately” because the coding are fucked beyond comprehension- each gen are different in that regard-. Only RNG manipulate the shiny eggs.
Random encounters in gen4 and 5 are fine, but prepare yourself to get shitty luck every now and then, that’s why I recommend multitasking.

>>48179306
If you leading the team with a Pokémon / static ability, the Electric encounters will increase dramatically.
>>
>>48179311
>>48179313
Thanks. Never know about it before, maybe I will try this sometime in Heartgold. Though now I hate it if the nature doesn't match because I have modest Feraligatr.
>>
>>48177792
Actually shiny furret is my fav mon. That fucker looks sooooo good.
>>
>>48179306
TA
As the other two anons explained, by using a Pokémon with static (mareep) as your lead you half the odds of every encounter on the route, then add the electric type as 50%.
So Mareep goes from 20%, halved to 10% and then has 50% added for a final encounter rate of 60% during the day.
You can also use the repel trick with this method to raise the odds to about 75%, can go into further detail if anyone is interested.

Redpill me on some good gen 4 hunts/hunting techniques outside of Pokeradar or Masuda Method (e.g how you can hunt all three starters at once.) Can be either HGSS or DPP.
>>
>>48177597
I use an R4 card on my DS and back it up onto that.
Always keep a back up of my shinies, I usually back up the saves, and get them onto the bank too.
>>
>>48179291
>Never shiny breed in gen3 , 4 and 5 “legitimately” because the coding are fucked beyond comprehension- each gen are different in that regard-.

redpill me
>>
>>48179291
Gen 3 isnt broken as a whole. Only emerald with the shiny frame and RS can be the same if the battery dies but FRLG are normal 1/8192 odds.
>>
>>48179306
pretty much what the other anons said, but magnet pull does the same thing with steel types if you're interested.
gen 8 brought in a couple more (i think flash fire for fire types and a grass equivalent) but i don't give a shit about gen 8 so i don't fully know.
>>
>>48179306
>>48182651
Magnet Pull: Increases steel type encounters
Static: Increases electric type encounters
Storm Drain: Increases water type encounters
Harvest: Increases grass type encounters
These abilities' outside battle effects only work if the pokemon with the ability is in the front of your parety.

Pressure and hustle also increase the likelihood of encountering stronger wild pokemon.
>>
>>48182088
FRLG don't suffer from the beginning seed/shiny frame thing?

they don't have an internal clock

I will make it simple : why I say never shiny breed in these games because A) the breeding process overall is slow as fuck, it is so slow you would stab yourself with a spoon. B) the shiny frame is not really "random". each of the mentioned gens had its own unique way :
Gen3 : tied to walking cycles for whatever reason. and in Honen games - Emerald in particular - you will find it is very easy to manuplate your way through the shiny.
Gen 4 : the frame is tied to date and excat time. As you play normally you won't know that but if you cracked the shiny frame you will see how helpless it is.
Gen 5 : don't have enough info yet - it is more complex than gen 3 and 4 ofc -, but the tedium still there it will make you sick.
Summary for full odds hunting : RE in gen 4 and 5 are fine. RE in gen3 works for FRLG and RS - with working battery only - if you don't mind minor tedium in there. Other than that it is not worth it and use the RNG pill for your own sanity.
>>
>>48183316
Nope, FRLG and RS dont have the shiny frame bullshit. If the battery in your RS runs out though those games will have the same issue Emerald does.
>>
>>48186197
Overall yes. However, people discovered that you can find a shiny frame in there by what is your options settings and keeping the entire intro plays fully everytime - a fucking speedrunner figured that out ffs -.
It is still more complicated than Honnen games and needs some work to get your way to the shiny frame.
>>
>>48186197
The internal battery of R/S is always on. Two months later and i started getting”THE INTERNAL BATTERY HAS RUN DRY, but the game will still run properly. Though time based events will no longer occur.” Every fucking time I loaded up ever since.
>>
>>48186172
Last thing to add: I figured a rule of thumb for the full odds shiny hunting: if the time between 2 encounters are higher than 30 seconds, drop that hunt. It’s not worth it unless if you are streaming or a big youtuber.
>>
>>48186266
It’s not a big deal, now the shiny frames are now predetermined and constant. For example: if the shiny frame is 97 seconds after starting the file, you will always get a shiny at that frame.
>>

> ~2 minutes per SR for Platinum starter
> 10 minutes or more for hatching 5 eggs, assuming the daycare wasn’t a dickbag and didn’t make you wait longer
> +6 minutes for catching a shadow Pokémon in Colosseum then check if it’s shiny

I mean you do you, I won’t judge
I just gave my advice because I spent an entire year for the shiny Turtwig and got nothing out of it. I don’t want anyone else to suffer the same thing.
>>
>>48187256
fair enough anon, I feel that pain
spent about 200 hours resetting for a snivy in black, but the payoff was massive

>>48190359
Pick up a gen4 game and see how long it takes to just hatch 5 eggs - espicially if you go for a high egg cycle egg like Bagon-.
Best case scenario is if you got an extra copy with different region to speed up the egg generations to the max, but I don't believe everyone got the same seeing the damn price.
>>
>>48189780
I’ve never actively hunted in Gen 6+, but I got two shiny mareeps in my first run of X. Neither felt very special.

Missed the event early on so I bred a bunch of eggs to get a shiny magikarp. Nothing special but my first ever shiny in all my years playing this fucking franchise so it felt amazing.

Well HGSS is the only game where you see if a starter is shiny before picking it. So the chance to get one is trice as high for the same/less amount of time other games have

Sadly i cant restart my HG or my SS since my HG has the whole Safari Zone unlocked, while my wife made a save on SS and is SRing for Suicune.
I´d really love to though

Random emulator shiny. 1/1024 odds but still pretty neat. Too bad this is a nuzlocke and it's probably not long for this world.
>>
>>48202288
I've only had one shiny appear during a nuzlocke, so I bent the rules a little by catching it (4th encounter on the route), and I gave it a second chance when fainted. and then I just boxed it instead of releasing it, but didn't use it again.
>>
>>48202311
It's generally accepted that shinies and static encounters don't count towards the first encounter rule. Some people use shiny clause, which is shiny pokemon don't need to be released, though I think most just stop using it after it faints.

KOing an overworld mon increases the chance that the next overworld mon that spawns will be the same species and form as the one you KO'd (assuming you don't get a random encounter inbetween). If you save in front of an Antique Sinistea and keep KOing them until something else spawns, then reset to get the first Sinistea back and repeat until you get a shiny, there's about a 5/6 chance the shiny will be Antique.

If you have a DS flashcart you can back up the save from a GBA cart to PC, then copy that phone file to PC. After, you can use VBA to trade between the two game saves, then copy the save with the shiny traded over back to the GBA cart. That's how I trade between Emerald and LG since I don;t have a cable or GBAs

Shiny hunting new legendary was not an issue in the past, why now they acted like if you kept soft resetting for a shiny will ruin the game for everyone? Let people play the fucking game as they damn well please.
>>
>>48205954
If you reset the game before you go back to the
menu but after seeing if the pokemon are shiny, you don't lose the ball. You just have to alternate which legendary you go in for otherwise you'll always get the same Adventure, down to the pokemon you see during the run; and if you reset too many times you get slapped with penalties anyway.
