Shiny Pokémon hunter and trainer

If we are to believe it, we will get info this month or in April about the confirmed Pokémon Switch game. Last E3, they mentioned it was already in the works
I've seen videos so I know it's possible but it takes alot so soft restarts, mind you the odds are probably about the same as breeding because the only shiny I've gotten through breeding was a shiny Rotom in Pokemon Y.Hard to say, i bred shiny starters myself during post games so i don't know the shiny odds for starting out shinies
Don't worry I'm sure you'll catch one one day.Been playing pokemon sience diamond, yet to find a single shiny
I mean I have shinies, but all event ones so they don’t countThe old games are on the 3DS, if you want to play them. They can interact with Pokémon Bank which is nice and helpful. @BypenThynDragon, Heartgold & Soulsilver have one set shiny you can get. If you have Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon then i recommend trying the SOS battles. Stock up on Adrenaline Orbs and put a Pokémon with the move False Swipe or another move with the same effect in the lead. I got shiny Yungoos by chaining SOS battles on the first route.
it’s definitely faster to find them in the wild in any game where you have PokéRadar (DPPt, XY), DexNav (ORAS) or SOS chaining (SM/USUM). i have a full box of shinies +2, most of them were caught in the wild.I'm guessing catching in the wild is the easiest way to get a shiny, because I think I've caught 3 in the wild in my time. I've defiantly had 4 shiny's.
thanks lol, i love my babies. and yea, shiny charm is a godsend, especially now that in gen7 you only have to complete the regional dex to get it. probably the only one in my box who wasn't the result of shiny charm odds is the typhlosion but i think she was the result of masuda method breeding. wouldn't remember for sure though because i was probably like, anywhere between 10 and 12 years old.@BypenThynDragon, They count and so does shiny Gyarados from HG & SS. Some can only be obtained through events so they definitely count since they are legit shinies. @Mari, Great shiny box you got there. I have SR chained legends so i get what you are saying but Shiny Charm did make life easier when available.
