I'm here to keep the thread alive!

With a shiny that I needed someone to verify with me the signs of a shiny because a shiny pansage is just a brighter colored version of a regular pansage.

Did you two actually find these or did you get them from GTS or Wonder Trade?

Does anyone know if chaining shinies with the Pok? Radar still works?

I caught a shiny Gothorita in the Pok?mon Village yesterday. Shame it's not really much of a change.

You're not the only one. I have gotten quite a bit through trades, but I haven't seen one in the wild. It really seems like the chances of finding one have increased though. I saw a picture of a horde battle with two shiny Mareep.

You poor, poor souls. I've seen quite a few legit shinies in previous games.

it seems like they've boosted shiny rates by quite a lot. It used to be 1/8192. now I think it's about 1/1000.

I don't know how many wild pok?mon I've met in Y so far, but no shinies. I've literally spent hours just running around in grass looking for one, but nothing.

Caught not one, but two of these while farming for Heart Scales haha. Seems to be tradition for me to always find a yellow/gold shiny as my first each generation.

Spoiler!

My first shiny ever! I was looking for Mareep when I met this Wingull. I named it Greengull since it has green stripes instead of blue, lolz.

Spoiler!

Aaaaages later I finally met the damn Mareep and here it is fully evolved as Mega Ampharos! Pink <3 Since it sparkles I named it Armstrong, any Fullmetal Alchemist fans here?

....

Spoiler!

Hordes, Poke Rader, Fishing Chains, breeding with foreign Pokemon, and the chance of finding a shiny has seemed to increase.

Nice. I am glad that fishing chains don't require it to be the same Pokemon being chained, just having a Pokemon bite. I will probably try it tomorrow or after I get my Scyther to have 4/5 perfect IVs. I am mainly interested in Clauncher.

It's definitely the easiest way to find shinies so far. Just get your Inkay (or any Pok?mon with Suction Cups) and get fishing! That Relicanth only took me 33 encounters (about 15-ish minutes), so it isn't bad at all.

Do we know if the Encounter O-Power would work? I haven't seen any mention of it, and I don't know whether it would break the chain or not work in water.

I'm not entirely sure. If you have a Pok?mon with Suction Cups as its ability in the first slot of your team, you should be finding a Pok?mon each time you cast your line, so the Encounter O-Power wouldn't help much. I've been using an Inkay that's holding a Smoke Ball, so he can still run from battles without an issue.

I've read others have been using Suction Cups but their chain sometimes still breaks. It would suck to have a 50+ chain and for it to break.

Really? I've only tried two chains so far, one of 33 that ended with the shiny Relicanth and another of about 42 that I just screwed up by pressing A too late. -.- So far, I've always found a Pok?mon while Inkay was leading my party.

However, the video I watched said that you might have better odds if you can stand next to a wall or between rocks. Perhaps reducing the amount of other water tiles around your lure helps? Like, I was looking for a Poliwhirl and I was standing with the end of the dock to one side of me and a fisherman NPC to the other, to give an example, or pushing myself just beside a rock when looking for Relicanth. I don't know if that actually matters, but that's what I've been doing. xD

Yeah, I have read that you want to fish in a square surrounded by 4 sides (you, shore, rocks, inaccessible water, or any other combination).

Yeah. The video I saw by mootypwns (on YouTube) mentioned that towards the end and that's what I've been doing. There's two pictures of the spots I was mentioning. xD

I don't understand that picture. If you fish right there, won't the water be touching the shore, other water, rock, and inaccessible water?




This is the spot I was talking about.

Okay...I'm sorry, but can someone explain to me what a shiny is? ^^ I know I know it's probably a pretty dumb question, but hey, I warned you I was noob XD :P

I guess that spot would be better, but surfing hadn't crossed my mind. I thought you were just supposed to try to cut off access on as many sides as possible. ._.

And a shiny is just a recolored Pok?mon that are much rarer to find. The odds of finding a shiny Pok?mon in the wild is about 1/8192, but there are methods to improve your chances. There's been people saying that they might've increased the odds in XY, but I don't think there's been any solid proof of that.

I tried Fish Chaining. I got to 82 times and accidentally hit A right after I put the rod in the water (I am tired). My luck isn't that good. I will try again later.

I caught a shiny... watchog. My first shiny, and not even a pok?mon I even remotely like.

...I should try chaining. Maybe then I'll get a good shiny.

Well, the only shiny I've found in my entire life is a Wurple, so I guess you are not alone...

By the way, what is this chain thing you guys are talking about? I really can't understand how you can find all those shinies...

I should stop trying to fish chain when I am tired. I just reeled it in too fast again and I was ~70 chain.

Over 60 chain and I reel it in too early because my phone made a beeping noise. So 3 over 50 chains today and no shinies.

I got a shiny Relicanth on a chain of 3 and critical-caught it with my first quick ball.
...talk about lucky. My first (non-shiny) Relicanth took at least 10 net balls.

My first ever caught Shiny (never had one before), so pretty proud of this one.




I also ran in to a Gothorita too, but unfortunately, I killed it, which sucked.

What's everyone's luck been like using MM on X/Y? I've been messing around with it, about 100 eggs hatched and no shiny. I'm way too impatient. :/

Fish chaining is waaaay too good.

Relicanth and Skrelp just hours apart.

Fished up a Shiny Relicanth in a chain/streak of 30.
Then a little bit later, when I felt like doing it again, I fished up a Clauncher in a chain streak of 65.

When you enter Route 16, there will be a little house there, this is the 'Fishing Shack'. One of the guys will give you a 'Super Rod' and the other one tells you about 'Consecutive Fishing', which is more like 'Streak Fishing', rather than 'Chain Fishing'. Anyway, he'll tell you if you can beat a streak of more than 7, he'll give you some 'Dive Balls'. Do that by trying to get like a streak of 8 in that area and then go back and talk to him, he'll give you the 'Dive Balls' and tell you a secret, which is about getting 'Rare Pokemon' if you streak long enough or unless you get lucky and get it on your 3rd streak or something.

Also, to make your streak pretty much unbreakable, you need to have a Inkay, Octillery or even a Lileep and their ability has to be 'Suction Cups'. The Pokemon has the be the first in the party though for it to work though and it also doesn't matter if the Pokemon has fainted either.

Hopefully that helped you.

So, I was trying my hand at chaining with the Pok?Radar and I ended up finding this little guy after about 38 encounters. <3

So, I was looking for a Jolly Ditto in a Friend Safari and ended up running into this lovely lady. I must've caught about 30 Ditto before I was starting to get frustrated and said I'll go back in one more time and catch six more before I stop for now and try again later.

This Aipom was the first encounter walking back in and the very next Ditto ended up being Jolly. <3 To add insult to injury, the second Ditto was Adamant, which was the nature I would've settled for if I didn't find Jolly. xD

Got these 4 in like 2.5 hours total one after the other all by fish chaining, ridiculous.




Kinda looks like the regular, just a bit more "green".




I almost killed this one because it looks so similar, only a bit clearer compared to the original.

Why don't you try your hand at chain fishing? That has to be the easiest of the methods I've attempted so far. I have three shinies now; the first from chain fishing, the second from chaining with the Pok?radar, and the third from a RE in a Friend Safari.

I was trying to chain for an Absol for you that one morning, but doing it in regular grass proved a lot tougher than the flowers. For me, anyway. I didn't notice one of the patches that moved a tiny bit and ran into it by accident and broke a chain of around 12-15. I might try that again some day. xD

It's still a 1/1300 chance for each egg. Meaning even if you hatch 1300 eggs, you're not guaranteed a shiny Pokemon. Though it is higher than same-region breeding.

I wouldn't expect a shiny in 100 eggs.

You should've seen my face when THIS happened...



I'm done with this game's shiny rate you guys.

I was just breeding a perfect Attack/HP IV Safari Mawile to try a competitive setup and wow.
This one was a Masuda Method (Japanese Ditto), first egg.

And what's even better!



The little fella is Adamant and has Intimidate, couldn't ask for more!

Hope some you guys who are still looking for shinies find this encouraging, don't give up!

Nice! I didn't know you were able to breed those, since they have no Gender. At least I know now, congrats. :P

Also I tried using the MM trying to get a Gastly, no luck atm with 300+ eggs hatched.

Default My shinys so far

As of now I have found a few shiny pokemon, six to be exact. I have not used the MM much, only tried it and hatched around 100 eggs but stopped, I have however done the fishing chain and gotten several pokemon from that. These pokemon are Relicanth, Dragalge, Skrelp and my favourite, poliwhirl. I have used the Poke Radar countless times and only got a Skiddo but was very lucky because instead of having to get to 40 chains I found him in just 5, the only shiny thus far that was random and without trying was my shiny Slowpoke who is now a Slowbro.

About 400 eggs. Probably 10 hours wasted on this. This is the last time I do this for sure, but I'm too stubborn to give up now. Worst thing is, with my luck, I won't get a shiny before 4000.

Trying to get a shiny Horsea and not getting any luck, since most of the time a Clauncher shows itself. I've got a spare 2 Shiny Clauncher, if anyone wants to trade at all.

(Just not at the moment as I'm about to head off to bed, send me a VM or PM if you're interested and I'll get back to you when I wake up).

If there's no way to get a shiny with a certain species with Pokeradar, or fishing (Too small patches of grass, pokemon does not live in water) then Masuda is the only viable option. Also flame body and hatching power help... a lot
Edit:I am trying to get Shiny goomy... Goomy is only found on route 16... there are no suitable patches of grass on route 16...

So I still haven't found a shiny of my own, yet. But I did trade for these two. I traded one my Scythers with 31/31/31/x/31/31 IVs for the Ralts. The Shiny Skrelp was harder to get. The person wanted a Modest Froakie with Protean and 31 IVs in Speed and Sp. Attack. I tried to get a Frogadier in the friend safari with these traits, but I didn't have luck. So I took my captured Frogadiers and eventually bred the Froakie I needed.

I don't have pictures, but I've only ever caught one shiny. A shiny Tentacool in Diamond, before I even knew what shinies were. I caught him because he showed up as a different color and I was like, 'That's weird.'

I named him Coolio and stuck him in a box.

I also have a Shiny Relicanth, but I really don't think that counts as I used the fishing method to get it. This Shiny Tauros just randomly appeared to me when I went to Route 12 to catch a Taorus. The first Pokemon that appeared was it, and I was shocked! lol

Got a shiny Relicanth and Poliwag via the fishing chaining.
First own catched shiny (except the Red Gyarados and that shiny dragon type(?) from b2/w2)

I'm wondering what the chances for the masuda methode are in x/y and if it's woth trying it.

Also heard that it's easier to get shinies from the friend safari. Does someone know something about this?

Doubt it, your chances should still be 1/8192.

Masuda method chances should be the same as in 5th generation assuming that gamefreak didnt tweak the game mechanics.

Masuda method in generation V: 1/1365

Masuda method + shiny charm chances: 1/1024
(Shiny charm is exclusive to BW2 at the moment)


I assume that the shiny charm is in pokemon XY because the oval charm is in XY as well. It would make perfect sense for the shiny charm to be here since the oval charm and shiny charm were made so that masuda method would be alot easier.

Oval charm: increases the chances of obtaining an egg

Shiny charm: increases the chances of getting a shiny pokemon.

Although the only problem to getting these though is that the shiny charm is a reward for completing the national dex which is every pokedex combined and the oval charm is awarded by completing the kalos dex.

I can't upload any pictures onto the forums for whatever technical reason. But these are they shinies I've caught in Y so far.

1st. Shiny Foongus in a hoard encounter
2nd. Shiny Minum in a hoard encounter
3rd. Shiny Skelp (I caught before I knew the chain fishing was a thing)
4th. Shiny Poliwhirl (I wanted to see if chain fishing really worked)
5th. Shiny Whischash One of my favorite pokemon so I decided to fish chain for it.
6th. Shiny Dwebble was a random encounter while rock smashing for fossils (Already own a shiny Dwebble in B2)


I dislike the fish chaining method. I know I used it for two out of my 6 shines but I have no plans on using it ever again.

Added after 29 minutes:

Holy crap I just caught a shiny Ninetails in the friend safari!

I got a shiny sharpedo through fish chaining on route 21. I really thought I was going to get a shiny gyarados because of how many I ran into, when I only ran into one sharpedo before I got a shiny one.
I also got a shiny deerling through hatching eggs- and on the first egg. I thought I was going to have to hatch hundreds!
I'm also trying to get a shiny swirlix now, and I've hatched about 9 eggs or so. The hatching O-Power is SO HELPFUL. I'm glad it stacks on Flame Body's bonus.

My post just randomly disappeared? Oh well, will have to post it again then.

I finally got my 3rd shiny Pok?mon! First time using the Masuda Method breeding. It took 632 eggs, loads of hours full of boredom and annoyance, but it was worth it. This is one of my absolute fave Pok?mon. Litwick!



<3

I made sure it got a Luxury Ball, 'cause that will match it well once it's an orange/black Chandelure. Its nature is boosting Special Attack and reducing Attack, which is perfect because it will only know special moves. Naturally I also maxed out EV for Sp. Attack. This will be a tough bastard <3

I named him Stinson because he's awesome, and legen-wait for it...

I'm not sure what message you're referring to, but I know the Pok?radar doesn't work if your on the skates or riding the bike. You have to be using the D-pad to walk/run normally.

my current highest chain is probably 5, with flab?b?... i cant figure out the chain bc random pokemon appear
i do go to the one that is 4+ steps away and has the biggest shake in the grass, but idk it doesnt work for me

Hello 3DS Forums

Currently have a Shiny Venusaur which I used the Masuda method and IV bred him. Got his IVs to be 31/29/31/31/31/30.





I gave away my shiny Chespin/Chesnaught from my first playthrough.

I've NEVER found a shiny in any of the games I've played (except the obvious Gyarados.) And yet I've found TWO today. I can't believe this.

Caught a shiny Meditite at the friend safari and evolved it. Beautiful.
Spoiler!


And a Shiny HONEDGE. And this was a raw shiny if I've ever seen one. I wasn't even chaining or anything. I was just looking for another nincada to evolve and BAM, right in my face. Can't wait to see what it's evolutions look like.

Before I got Y my last shiny (excluding ones set in game) Was in my Platinum in september of 2009! 3 Sundays ago I caught a Shiny Sliggoo with Gooey and Great IVs, then in the last 12 hours I have caught 3 shinys alone! Two of them were 30 minutes apart! I caught a Magmar last night, then another Sliggoo, and then this morning I caught Braxien with Amazing IVs.

Just got this little thing. It's IVs are 31/X/31/31/10-11/14-15, going to get a second one that will hopefully have better IVs. Might give this one away since it's not better than my normal one.

Quick question, when i'm chain fishing, do ai need to actually catch the hooked pokemon or can I just keep running until a shiney appears?

Edit: Nevermind, I just caught my first shiny EVER thanks to you fine folks and this method! A Shiny Poliwhirl!

How do you get shinies in the first place?

By encountering Pokemon and then catch them, or you can breed to make one.

I think the shiny rate is now at 1/1000 or something; maybe it's not, but here are some methods to get shinies easier:

PokeRadar (Chaining): http://www.serebii.net/xy/pokeradar.shtml

Chain Fishing: http://www.serebii.net/xy/fishchain.shtml

Masuda Method: http://www.serebii.net/games/shiny.shtml

812 encounters to find this guy. Was more hoping to get a Fraxure or Shelgon, but this is still awesome nonetheless.

Managed to get another Shiny Froakie pretty fast today (compared to how long it took to get a perfect Female). IVs are 31/16-17/31/16-17/31/31, timid Nature and it's torrent instead of Protean . Going to try again hopefully third time's the charm. Might give this one away since I don't need three shiny Froakies.

So far, no more luck for me besides chain fishing a shiny Basculin (bleh) and Alomomola (I guess...)

It doesn't really have the best Nature (Impish, lol), but it took me at least 6,000+ encounters, over a period of days just to find one. I was sort of looking for a Shuppet more than Phantump, but I'm still pretty happy I got something out of it in the end and like 10 - 15 minutes later, I found that Charmeleon.

I ran into a shiny Audino in the Friend Safari while I was working on my Pok?dex. (Excuse the poor quality. I only had my tablet available and it doesn't have the best front-facing camera.)

Yesterday I got myself a shiny Gyarados. Then today, I decided I want a shiny Magikarp, and 10-20 mins later, Ta Dah! Gotta love easy fish chaining.

First time in my life I've ever caught myself some shinies.

Took me 363 eggs.



EDIT (12-22-13): Got my shiny Squirtle after 185 hatching eggs!!!!! Just hatched.
EDIT (12-23-13): Bulbasuar hatched after the 24th eggs. Seems like my chance for a shiny is getting bigger and bigger. XP

Now onto a shiny Froakie.

Another shiny now from a pretty cool Dragon Safari I got recently!



Bonus:
If you've ever wondered how shiny Mega Garchomp looks like...



This just screams to be nicknamed (Mega) Barney.

Just a few of the shinies I mostly got transferred to X, plus I'm not counting the shiny legendary dogs from Gen 2 since those were giveaways a few years back. Other that I had but can't find were shiny Onix, Volbeat, and Lotad.

Finally got a Shiny Chespin again and unlike the first one that I got on my first playthrough of the game by luck while trying to get a good nature for my starter(about the 6-10 soft reset). This one is a 5 perfect IV Chespin and I'm fine with it not having the bulletproof ability. Masuda method is so much easier now that I'm playing my game in French.

I managed to obtain 5 shiny Petilils. I have given two away so far since I don't need that many shiny Petillils. I still have two available if anyone else wants one.

Thought I'd compile all my shinies into a single image. Doesn't include gift shinies, only the ones I bred/caught myself.



Magcargo, Random FS Shiny, the first one I caught in X/Y. No nickname yet.
Shade, Shiny Umbreon from Platinum.
Groucho, Shiny Heracross from Soul Silver.
Chico, Shiny Kricketune from Soul Silver.
Suriel, Shiny Gallade from Sapphire. (Obviously wasn't evolved in Sapphire.)
Saddam, Shiny Camerupt from Ruby, my first ever wild shiny.
Exdeath, Shiny Trevenant from Y, my newest shiny.
Mikomi, Shiny Kirlia, from White, named after the first ralts I ever caught but was long since released.
Gorn, Shiny Metagross from Soul Silver.
Abram, Shiny Kyurem from White.
Largo, Shiny Latios from Sapphire.
Justice, Shiny Rayquaza from Ruby.

Decided that Joltik/Galvantula would be my last shiny Pokemon I will breed. Almost got him perfect on my first attempt. I did finally manage to get my Perfect Lilligant on the 12th try. Don't think I will play Pokemon in a while.



And my Perfect Chesnaught since I didn't show him when he was a Chespin.
