    Default The Shiny Thread

    Speculation on the interwebz over Shiny Pokémon is rampant- people are saying that the chances of finding Shiny Pokémon have been raised.
    From what I've heard, I think this makes sense. First off, let's state the facts:

    1) Zekrom/Reshiram/(Event)Zorua/(Event)Zoruark cannot be shiny.
    ~If the chances were raised, then perhaps Gamefreak/Nintendo still want Shiny Legends to be uber rare?

    2) Chances of hatching a Shiny via Masuda Method (breeding) have purportedly been raised from 1/2048 to 1/1365.3.
    ~Confirmed by Serebii

    3) Current Gen IV Shiny Count : 11

    (Post here if you can confirm any other Shiny Sightings and I'll add 'em to the list)

    So, PF? What do you think?
    Are you for the Shiny Increase? Do you even think that it has happened?

    Jats's friend from school also found a shiny Blitzle.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the rate has increased, especially with the removal of the PokeRadar, which greatly increased the number of shinies in circulation.

    My friend, when first time in Wellspring Cave found a shiny Roggenrola.

    I think the shiny encouter rate has increased.

    Also i think the chances of a getting pokerus has increased too. After my 3rd gym i caught pokerus.

    Someone I met at school caught a shiny Ferroseed. It does make sense that the chances of encountering shiny pokemon may have increased.

    I've still never seen a shiny or caught the pokerus. EVER. I must have like 500 hours in my pokemon games... But, I really hope the increase the shiny encounter rate. I don't even need to catch one, I just want to see one.

    You say that but if you see a shiny and KO it you'll be BL suicidal.

    I think the rate has raised. I found a shiny Patrat while training for the first gym.

    Serebii's confirmed the Masuda Method increase, but I'm struggling to find even a discussion of the normal odds on the internet.
