Official New and Improved General Shiny Thread

I was able to get a Shiny Regidrago by soft resetting. I made sure I wasn't catching the same one by catching one, checking its stats, and soft resetting. Then do that again. Use a Master Ball if you have one.
SRs absolutely do work. I got Regice right away, but unfortunately, it took me nearly 9 unlucky days (~65-70 hours) of SRs for Regirock.

I'm currently at 3 days for Registeel. A lot of people have been going over charm odds, so some are believing the Regis are standard odds, but that isn't confirmed. A lot of people are just possibly getting unlucky.
Phew, I'm glad I didn't to those soft resets for nothing then. Thanks for the info~
Still no shiny Regidrago, but I had some legendary hunts taking weeks in Ultra Sun, so this is indeed pretty normal if you're not being on the lucky side for a particular hunt.

After a 10 day shiny drought in Dynamax Adventures I caught a shiny Copperajah after a failed shiny Tapu Fini attempt. On my next run through I managed to get a shiny Fini. To top that off about 5 runs later I got a shiny Tapu Koko. I think the game more than made up for the long drought.

I started playing Pokemon GO about a month ago and that has been really good to me. In the short while I have been playing I have already managed to catch 18 shiny Pokemon.

Oh this is sweet. I managed to get two Dynamax shinies in a row; a really tan Alolan Raichu, AND Tapu Fini!

So I've had quite a interesting afternoon. 3 Back to Back shinys in the Raid den.
#1 Cryogonal
#2 Dugtrio
#3 Sealeo
Then I wanted to finish off hatching the 5 eggs I've had in my box for a few days as i was 500+ for Toxel. First one was a freaking Shiny! absolutly insane luck.

Yesterday I got a Shiny Lunala Diggersby and a Beartic from the Dens also.

I'm around 80 dens in for Rayquaza in total. Think I'll take a break now to go and Encounter the Regi's. I am loving the DLC so far.
Good luck to all you hunters! and congratulations to the previous ones. Anyone know where Cyberra has got off too? Use to love reading her updates.

So I spent the whole of yesterday still in my dens hunting zygarde and managed to find

#1 Tangela which is now a big green tangrowth
#2 Alolan Sandslash
#3 Luxray

And after a long day of mostly fails , as I think zygarde is probably one of the toughest Dens out there I got my White dragon! this is perhaps my favourite shiny legendary and power construct is awesome!
Looking for a yveltal or rayquaza den now and push on to that

Congratulations on your recent shinys.

I'm currently 4 days deep into Ho-oh dens. I'm at around 150-200 dens possibly.
Had a drought for 3 days. But today so far I've had a shiny mudsdale and a shiny slowbro! So onto phase 3 for Ho-oh, going to take a stop with dens after this and proceed to MM a shiny grookey before moving onto the Regi's.

GL in all your hunts.

Congratulations on your regis Themaster327! Cant wait to start them up myself!. And congrats to everyone else on yours.

So I'm still doing Ho-oh adventures and it still hasnt shone.
But I've since managed to get a shiny Sceptile , octillery, relicanth , porygon and basculin. Putting me into phase 9 for this legendary! Zygarde and lunala was faily quick but this one is taking its time! I dont mind as I have alot of shinys to go into the living dex. Hoping it shines soon!

Good luck to all your hunts
 
Did some wormhole hunting for the Ultra Beasts and managed to get a shiny Kartana and Xurkitree since my last post.
Also hatched a shiny Torchic, Aron, Lileep and Spheal. Now trying to MM for a Baltoy on Sword and trying to get to the Ultra Ruin for Guzzlord in US. Only found the Ruin once to skip the cutscene but finding it a second time seems to be pretty difficult.

Anyways, my shiny luck has been pretty high since that really long Regidrago hunt. Hoping this streak will last~

Pokemon go has been really good to me this week. So far I have gotten 2 Cubones, Drowzee, Piplup, Exeggcute, Zubat, Nidoran♂ & Aipom. Hopefully my luck continues with Community Day today.

In Dynamax Adventures I had to choose between a shiny Mienshao and shiny Landorus. I went with Mienshao since I figured it would be easier to reclaim the Landorus since the pokemon leading up to the legendaries is completely random. I also managed to get shiny Latias, Druddigon & Basculin.

Editing to add that I just reclaimed the shiny Landorus.
Editing again to say that I caught 6 shiny Electabuzz for community day in about 1 1/2 hours.

Nice!

Just caught a shiny Electabuzz in Go. Glad that I could get one, since I had to do Community day inside due to bad weather.

I got several shiny Electabuzz with Community Day. This will allow me to transfer a shiny Electivire into Sword/Shield without worrying about having to trade it away or find someone to trust(yeah, I'm introverted).
