The light is coming
I found a shiny Gothorita while grinding today on Route 20, on Y. It was a nice surprise, since I never even expected it.

Hey guys, just a quick question. Has anyone found a shiny with just only having two pokemon in the safari? as in you both haven't been online to get the 3rd?

Cheers guys

Shinneeee!
I'll be honest, the friend safari isn't throwing out shinies as quickly as I expected which I'm glad of! I do think the odds are lower though, or there is a new mechanic there

Yes, several. Almost all of my friend safari Pokemon were obtained in a safari with 2 pokemon, even in safaris where that friend doesn't have Pokemon (as in the games).
Keep in mind anything that you can't directly observe the results of (tipping increases shiny chances, being online raises shiny chances etc.) is pure speculation. And pure speculation is usually BS.

On my 27th CF, I encountered a shiny male lv. 35 Qwilfish, with a Adamant nature.

This is the first shiny that I tried to obtain, and that did not appear randomly.

I was in my friend's Friend Safari, doing a search. After a very short hunt of only about 1 hour total for encounters, and a shiny Frogadier pops up. This was exactly what I was looking for. I caught it in a Luxury Ball (which look snazzy in 3D), and was delighted to see that it had a Modest nature. Unfortunately it had Torrent instead of Protean, but that doesn't matter. It's shiny. And has a Modest nature.

Oh, another quick question:

When you catch a pokemon when your CF'ing, does it reset?

^Yes.

-Catching a Pokemon ends the chain.
-Moving ends the chain.
-Not getting a bite, pressing 'A' too quickly or too slowly ends the chain.
-Switching rods does NOT end the chain.
-KO'ing or Running does NOT end the chain.

Lots of shinies. So congratz to everyone with the shinies they got...there are so much Shinies now that it just gets too hard to congratulate everyone personally. XD

Anyways I've started MM'ing for Froakie. (I'm not keeping track of the amount of eggs, since it will only demotivate me or gets me annoyed. XD ) And every non shiny Froakie I put on the Wonder Trade, and man did I get some nice Pokes from there. XD Lot of foreign/Japanese Pokemon (almost 1 box full) and Pokemon with their Hidden Ability. (like a Protean Froakie, which I now use to breed too :p)

So I just keep going and maybe I will get some more rare Pokemon via Wonder Trade this way. And ofcourse good luck and succes to every other Shiny hunter and may there be a shiny sparkle soon. :)

Alright, thank you. :)

I am new to Cf'ing, I really hope I'm not bothering anyone with my questions.

This is my second post here my first being a year ago about my first ever shiny XD. Well since then I have found a few more but these are my most recent finds. The first being a week or two ago a shiny Skorupi :) just found it when I was trying out the pokerader I just stepped into a patch which was just normal and it appeared. The second being last week in the friend safari a shiny Illumise The third was today a shiny Ho-oh :D which I've been hunting for several months on and off and today it finally shone :D.

Hey guys! Haven't hunted in the last 2 days (due to exhaustion after work) but I am starting my maternity leave in 2 weeks so plenty of time to hunt before I have the baby! Hopefully I get my 2nd bq shiny soon! I would be happy with another friend safari shiny as well. Hunting in a flying safari with farfetch'd, swanna, and rufflet (hoping for rufflet). Anyways good luck everyone on your hunts!!

Been trying to get a shiny whole day, no luck yet. Hope something will shine tomorrow, I hope for a shiny male hidden ability spiritomb though.

Took me a chain of 167 before I finally got my shiny skrelp! Came with pokérus and the nature I wanted too, very happy!

Still trying the MM for a shiny honedge. Over 1600 eggs and counting, but no luck yet.

After 213 ish eggs my shiny Honedge finally hatched. I screamed in excitement. I wanted one soooo badly. This is my first mm shiny in xy!

Congrats! That's def one of my future targets. Approaching 750 eggs and still no Chespin, but I've not given up hope yet. Did finally catch a shiny in the FS, sadly it was a Fraxure and I was trying for a Noibat. So I traded it on the GTS for Xerneas, so I now have both X & Y legends. Not a bad deal IMO. Good luck all!

Well now that Shiny Modest Frogadier is Super Trained, I guess it's time to go back to hatching Tyrunt.

Does anyone have any tips on how to stay motivated? The Frogadier hunt was short but this Tyrunt one is getting boring.
