- I decide to hunt for a shiny Kirlia in a (Kirlia-Swirlix) safari.
- First attempt searching for 2 hours with nothing.
- Thinking about the tipping, and the fact that yesterday i got my shiny Dedenne, i thought that the shiny Dedenne is the reward of some tipping earlier, so now i need to tip more.
- Tipping several people, mainly the photographer.
- Second attempt searching, got a shiny Swirlix with Rash nature in less than 2 hours.
- Still wanting my Kirlia, i tried again but in 1 hour time got nothing.
- Decided to tip some more people.
- Third attempt, landed again on shiny Swirlix in less than 1 hour.
- Tried to tip some more, photographer and cafe people.
- Fourth attempt, finally find my dear shiny Kirlia in less than 1 hour, a lovely female with synchronized Timid nature, and an "outstanding" IV with 4 perfect IV's at that. Made my day.

Do you think the tipping is coincidence or is there actually some effect as to increasing the chance? Who knows, i'm too happy to think for now. Done searching for shinies for a while in X.Big Grin
Where are the people that you can tip? I know there is one in the city of the 8th gym leader but I'm trying to find more haha.

That's my question as well, i remember meeting a LOT of them in my playthrough but whenever i searched for them now they're gone.

But i know few people who can be given a tip:
- The photographer from photo spot.
- The maid in Battle Chateau.
- In Lumiose City Vert/Bleu plaza there's a cafe with a mimic who can be tipped, and a poet who also can be tipped.
- In Anistar, Cyllage, and Laverre there is a cafe where you can get information on Pokemon, who charge you 500/1000/5000 for sitting there. The waiter can be tipped.
- The battle restaurant in Lumiose can also be tipped.

I only remember those few people.

RE: Shiny Pokémon in X / Y: Less Rare & More Special

Story of my life when it comes to shinies....

[Image: p9530.jpg]

I'm tempted to try the tipping thing, so far from what I've heard it works best in combination with the friend safari (which I have yet to unlock, haven't even beaten the fifth gym yet). Personally, I caught a shiny Gible, but only after I started tipping 1,000 instead of the smaller amounts. It could be a placebo effect, but I am generally a very unlucky person when it comes to shinies so I'm willing to believe it. At the very least, I'll feel good for giving virtual entities money.

I'm just glad they brought back the poke radar! I can't wait to use it, it was the only thing I was semi-okay at. And now with this whole fishing chaining thing we can get our water pokemon shinies too!

100+ hours, 0 shinies... How are you people so lucky? I've been breeding, tipping, chaining, hunting at the safari, and nothing....

Just stick at it. There was a point where I fished for like 4 hours with no shinies. The next day I fished for 2 hours and found 3.

RE: Shiny Pokémon in X / Y: Less Rare & More Special

Just caught my second shiny through fish chaining--a Corsola!

My chain went to 105 before I got it, though. Persistence is key!

RE: Shiny Pokémon in X / Y: Less Rare & More Special

lol I got a shiny gyarados in safari, felt trolled but end up finally trading it off for a shiny Clauncher which looks like dr. Zoidberg. XD And got a Espurr from a safarai as well. I haven't tried tipping yet, but it sounds like it it mainly works dramatically well if you're hunting in safari.

RE: Shiny Pokémon in X / Y: Less Rare & More Special

Caught a shiny Tangela (don't really want it), and my pride and joy: a shiny Ivysaur (who's now a Venusaur/Mega Venasaur) in the friend safari. Does tipping really help shinies appear more often? If it does, shiny Quilladin here I come!!

Best. Moment. Ever.
