Who else has had luck with hoards?
>>
>>20836377
Is that 2 shinies?
>>
>>20836384
Just one. I haven't had the luck of finding two yet..
>>
>>20836407
I've never had the luck of finding a shiny, ever.

I don't even use repels ;_;

Finding two in the same hoard is awful luck though. You'll catch one, see it has shit IVs, and know you made the wrong choice.
>>
>>20836550
the pic is a horde of gulpin
>>
I've had pretty good luck. I found a shiny Gligar completely randomly, and a shiny Murkrow after about 3 hours (that's pretty low, right?) of grinding hordes specifically looking for shinies.

My shiny luck has been shit in every other game, so this has been a nice change.
>>

Fishing is so easy. I've gotten like 5 lobsters+ poliwags and all the other stuff.

I just shiny hunt because there's no postgame
>>
Im colourblind, alot of shinies are hard to distinquish for me and theres a decent chance Ive killed/ran from shinies

but i found 2 legit ones in platinum, ledyba and barboach, and one in HG or emerald, I forgot i think it was a zubat.

did have like 600 hours on platinum.
450 on Y and no shinies so far
>>
>>20836659
Winner winner chicken dinner!
>>
>>20836644
Yeah, 3 hours is pretty good. Took me a few weeks of breeding, hoarding, fishing, and safaris to get one after a drought.
>>
>>20836644
I got a shiny Murkrow after about half an hour without the shiny charm.
>tfw shit IVs
Oh well looks nice as a trophy shiny.
>>
I obsessively bred one of my Pokémon for hours and hours before VGC and managed to get two shinies in about 10 hours of game play (over two days). Both of them randomly got a 0 IV despite flawless parents though.

Not sure if that's good or bad luck.

I spent two weeks breeding noibats. I got three shiny pokes, two with dirt ivs, then this bad boy.

>>20836818
This one took me under 100 eggs. Same day. The Noivern took over 700.
>>
>>20836680
Theres no chance. you would of see the stars and the sound.
>>
>>20836896
when I train my pokemon if often also watching a movie or in a conversation, so I miss the start of battle and I usually play with sound off/music on etc.
I find the repetitive sounds of battle get annoying after after awhile.
But I do take a close look most of the time

This green dude took me 655 eggs to get and he hatched 5 hours ago.

Not really fancying farming hordes for bad IV'd shinies. You can see the name i'm gonna give him from file name.

are you gonnause it for your ORAS playthrough?

Nah, gonna use him as my mega salamence candidate. But i'm pretty sure smogon bans MegaMence pretty quickly.
>>
>>20836377
I found a shiny durant there too
>>
While I haven't gotten a shiny from a horde, I did get my very first shiny just a couple weeks ago, a shiny Heracross. I was really surprised because I was just battling Pokemon in the wild grass trying to find new Pokemon in that area to catch, and I wasn't very far in the game having only 3 badges.
I did hear they increased shiny rates in X/Y and it definitely seems to show, but I don't think that lowers the awesomeness of seeing them.
>>
>>20836864
>Bad boy

>>20837194
Bad boy. Bad girl. I don't care one way or the other. Got it July 4th. Nabbed it Freedom.

>Finding two In The same horde

Pick one. Unless you mean the bad kind of luck
>>
>>20837210
Named. Damn swift key.
>>
Outside of durant how do you check for HAs in hoard battles?
>>
>>20837232
You mainly just have to get lucky. It'sreally a godawful method of getting HAs for the most part. Even if an obvious one pops up, that doesn't mean you'll be able to tell which one activated it because it doesn't highlight the user of anything.
>>
>>20837232
Well, for Carbink you surf its fucking face and if it lives it has its HA.
>>
>>20837050
with or without shiny charm?
>>
>>20837312
With shiny charm and masuda method. :)
>>
>>20837330
That's gotta be why it didn't take too long. I dying have the shiny charm, or oval charm fit that matter. Just a good old 6iv Japanese whore.
>>
>>20837232
I used Pangoro's Entrainment. Got a regenerator Slowpoke that way.
>>
>>20837344
Bagon egg hatching is painfully slow tho even with hatching o-power level 3...
>>
>>20837232
With Slowpoke you can use Teeter Dance and Attract, with Gligar you can check with Poison Gas and for Spinda you can use a pokemon with Intimidate.

There are tricks for the others as well but those are the ones I remember.

Pseudo-legendaries you mean. :P Even snorlax takes long tho.

Was thinking of breeding shiny Snorunt next for ORAS ingame team next.

Heh, I got my first XY shiny from a hoard too. It was also a Durant. Nothing other than that though.

I found a shiny Whirlipede in the Friend Safari though. Of course it had a crap nature and IVs but it looks cool so I don't mind.
>>
I hatched a shiny snorunt with the wrong ability. Also got a shiny Marill missing HP that I gave to someone I found on my campus while eating lunch. He didn't have a lot of friend safaris so after our battle we traded to get the FC.

And then there was a shiny timid eevee that was supposed to be my HP ice jolteon which I never fucking got. All I needed to RNG was the 30def I had passed down and a random even number attack, but no I get a shiny before that.
>>
>>20837409
That's really why I look for shiny pokes. I only breed for the ones I want to use. Otherwise, it's all trophies.

How many horde encounters do you need with shiny charm?
>>
>>20837591
Did that with a 5 cent coin but it eventually cracked joypad up and now i'm using a game case + weight to press d-pad for that. Still painfully slow.
>>
>>20837574
Sure, if you get in the right spot it just circles around forever.
>>20837642
>Still painfully slow.
I've been breeding a ton and it's not that slow when you use hatching power lv3.
>>
>i catch shinies and modify their iv's to make them 6iv pokemon
>>
>>20837599
However long it takes for you to get a shiny.
>>
>>20837642
its probably slow because its not going the max amount of speed allowed by the joystick as a result of it being broken.
>>
I've gotten two shiny keen eye wingulls from hordes. And a cubchoo, and a vanillite. Oh, and a psyduck.

>>20837232
I use a simple beam Xatu, magic bounce helps with annoying shit like yawn or sand-attack
>>
With everything I've heard about shiny Geodudes and the difficulty in catching them, it makes me wonder: What about running a Pokemon with Magnitude & Imprison, since Imprison will stop all the Geodude from hitting their team-mates. Alternatively, as long as you can target the shiny, Telekinesis.
>>
>>20838424
It seems silly to carry a smeargle just to hunt geodudes.

I'd rather just bike simulator one.
>>
how often are shinies in a horde if you have the shiny charm? A pokemon should get an overworld ability to increase odds, like the abilities for items.
>>
>>20837111
>i'm pretty sure smogon bans MegaMence pretty quickly.
Sure but why does that matter? You bred him already, so its not like you can't ever use it just because uncle smog says so. Just not for official Smogon tourn-- Wait
>>
>>20838593
Do it for a day. I'll guaratee you at least two. I got five in one day earlier this week, and two today already.

don't use a guitar pick.
use a paper you can damage the stick
I use a guitar capo and have it press a direction on the D-pad instead, also it comes on and off easier between egg pickups and the endless circle in lumi
currently 5 boxes deep for a shiny eevee with the shiny charm and oval charm.

>the ride never ends
>>
>>20840164


just keep it.
I have a few boxes of kalos shinies if there is something specific you want though

dem dragon eggs..
so far ive bred 3 shiny dragons,
2 hydreigons, (first one missing spatk)
and my Dragonite came out HA missing spatk(its a physical)

Id say those 3 alone have added a good 150hours to my gametime

>>20836377
Just caught one of those tonight!

also I had two back to back hordes with shiny weepinbell. I'm not lying.
>>
>>20840345
powersave also makes them 100% less common. I get hacks of stuff all the time via wondertrade.
>>
>>20840345


have a pile of gen 5 randoms if you need help filling the dex. I collect kalos shinies, though powersave is a deterrent for me..
do a pastebin of what you need.
I'm just hatching eggs anyways
>>
>>20836474
I have a shiny golem for some reason. Is it worth anything?
>>
already caught 2 shines today during horde training (Wingull and Yanma)
>>
>>20841198
most shinies are worth aproximately a shiny. which obvious exceptions. shiny gyarados, not worth so much. as well as any event shiny. fishing shinies aren't worth as much as safari shinies and horde shinies but those aren't worth as much as kalos born non-safari non-horde shinies. i'll make a graph
>>
>>20841225


do it plz
I hate having to explain why I don't want to trade my egg hatched 5iv mons for skrelp
>>
>>20841225
So, what you're saying is I could get a different, normal shiny if someone wanted mine? Because that's all I want. I could probably ask in Wi-Fi general.
>>
>>20841279


yeah probably although its harder to find shit that isn't powersave crap now.. check the summary closely before you trade

but even if it seems legit its probably fake.
I go for the friend safari ones or egg hatched
nicknameable used to be the only thing I would trade for before powersavers came along
>>
>>20841312
I don't even know what this powersave nonsense is, so I guess I don't care. I just want something different.
>>
>>20841349
what are you looking for I have a box of kalos shiny if you want something non-competitive
>>
>>20841170
I have most of the Gen 5 so far. What i'm hoping for is a Latias, Thundurus, Landorus or Cresselia.

Is there any way i can prove its a legit Pokemon and not one gotten with cheats?
>>
>>20841361
I have no idea. I don't know Kalos pokemon that well yet. Could you make a recommendation?

true, but for real. it's pretty easy to spot hacked shinies. they are always lvl100, 6iv, pokerus, with egg moves, and the perfect nature. not hard to figure out. nobody hacks a shiny quirky 0iv sunkern.

>>
>>20844310
I think it comes down to this. Who has use for a legendary Pokemon you can only get once, and has dirt for ivs. I think a lot of people look down on those who use legends in online battles. I traded my yvetal for a shiny 6 iv whismer. I have a friend who lives exploud, so I bred him one. I had no use for my legend, it was just rotting in a box.
