It took at least 6 boxes for my Shiny Staryu. It only took around ~30 eggs for my new shiny Charmander I just got today. I wasn't even trying to get one, but it was a pleasant surprise. --- Many Bothans died to bring you this post.
2500 eggs to get me my shiny Ralts; it was female, with Synchronize (might Capsule it to get Trace), with max IV's in HP, S.ATK, S.DEF, and Speed. Pretty pleased with the outcome, so I gave her the nickname I only give to special gaming characters I use, since she fit the bill: Sapphire! She's my blue star-studded gem of a Gardevoir now. ^_^
And yes, I do realize the irony of my Trainer name and one of my pokemon sharing the same name, but that's only because I didn't realize I couldn't make her hair blue. T_T --- 3DS FC: 1590-4884-9269 | PKMN X - Trainer Sapphire - TSV: 401 Friend Safari: Fire; Growlithe, Braixen, Charmeleon
No freakin way!!! I was JUST about to ask someone on here if they had a shiny Careful, Harvest Phantump/Trev for trade, and I was hatching some eggs, and the VERY first egg in this batch hatched Shiny AS I WAS TYPING THIS MESSAGE!
I'm just in flockin shock right now. This is so crazy lol. I was just typing the message as it hatched and I was thinking "What if I just magically hatched one right now?" Then the first one hatched & I said: "Wait, why does it look like... No way..." lol Man, I CANNOT even believe this right now. And I'm SOOOOO glad she has Harvest. Like, I just... can't... xD
So, I just hatched a shiny Phantump in 1 egg. ONE EGG! (The VERY 1st egg for today too!) Lolol

This DEFINITELY makes up for the Over 9000 eggs to get my shiny Gastly, which I still do not have. :P But this def makes up for that crap! My luck has just balanced out! Ahh! I feel like screaming! Haha! --- Pokemon X FC: 1134-7604-8158 Official Kagami Uchiha of the Naruto UNS3 Boards
