To Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before.
Hosted my first shiny raid today. For a shiny Wailord. Was able to catch it. Named it Moby.
Just a handy tip. If you breed a shiny in gen 7 and you reset your game, it guarantees a shiny to be bred after the exact same amount of eggs for 7 resets. The gender won't change though, but if it happens to be male you can reset, switch out your pokemon in the day care and you'll still get a shiny at that egg count.I still don't care about Shinies as I think 99% of them look awful, but I got the idea to try and get the ones I actually really like. Starting from my favorite Shiny ever (Mega) Gardevoir. I don't have the Charm (can't be bothered to complete the dex), so I'm Masuda-ing without it in USUM. It is my understanding the odds without the charm are 1/683 and the odds with it are 1/512, so it's not even a significant improvement IMO. I'm 702 eggs in and nothing. I know "1 in 683" does not guarantee a Shiny in 683 eggs, not even in 1366 eggs, but I thought I'd be luckier...
I just hope when the shiny comes, if it ever does, it's not male.
4 years? Wow, was it full odds pre-gen 6? That's some insane length for a hunt. I think the longest one I've done was Cobalion in US and it only took about a month.Try taking a break for a bit. It took me 4 years to find a shiny Ditto, hunting off and on.
Yep, but it was full odds gen 6. Via a Ditto friend safari. It was being very stubborn. Took some breaks from time to time, but came back to try some more.4 years? Wow, was it full odds pre-gen 6?

And now I realize I still have to beat UM for the version exclusive legendaries in there but I'm really not looking forward to playing the game itself because of all the cutscenes. Still gotta do all the Ultra Beasts too in both versions.
Also, hatched a shiny Bergmite after only 67 eggs so that was nice. Trying for Clauncher next.
