    Full odds wild (with charm, and while trying to find a Riolu to chain):

    Used Soak to allow False Swipe to work on this one. I plan to use my Smeargle to get Drifloon and Sableye as well.

    So, uh... For the first time ever, I went through and counted all of my shinies that I could find. Since I haven't posted about most of them, I thought I'd post the full list here?
    For the sake of not absolutely overflowing PokeBeach, I'm not putting images in this post, only listing the Pokemon by method.
    Palkia
    Raikou×2
    Entei×2
    Suicune×2
    Gyarados×2 (Lake of Rage)
    Golem
    Seaking
    Paras
    Dragalge
    Crobat×2
    Zigzagoon
    Scatterbug
    Ditto
    Ditto
    Pikachu
    Dedenne
    Kecleon
    Eevee
    Shuppet
    Gardevoir
    Regigigas
    Stakataka
    Kyogre
    Pelipper
    Gigalith
    Umbreon
    Minccino
    Buneary
    Furfrou
    Toucannon
    Butterfree
    Oricorio
    Magnezone
    Ariados
    Alolan Marowak
    Midday Lycanroc
    Swellow×4
    Yanmega×4
    Sigilyph×2
    Altaria×2
    Swanna
    Stunfisk×3
    Quagsire×2
    Barbaracle×4
    Lombre×2
    Floatzel
    Crustle×5
    Magcargo×3
    Hippowdon×3
    Medicham×2
    Abomasnow
    Drapion×2
    Audino×2
    Nuzleaf
    Grumpig
    Heliolisk
    Which brings my total, including trades, events, and wormholes, to a whopping...
    ...87 shiny Pokemon?!
    I...did not think I would have this many, to say the least. Maybe I miscounted somewhere??
    EDIT: not even 2 hours later, another Eevee. Added to Friend Safari list and updated the total.
    EDIT: Honestly, how in the world? Another Friend Safari, a Shuppet. List and total updated.
    EDIT: I completely forgot about my two Ditto... Trade and DexNav lists updated, total updated.

    Okay so how does Friend Safari even work? Do you actually have to get someone else that has X/Y to connect with your game, or...? I've never gotten a shiny (aside from shiny Torchic from SRing in AS, but that's not full-odds) in XYORAS... and I want one xD.

    Any person that has given you their Friend Code will cause a Friend Safari to appear in Kiloude City. Their code determines the Type of Pokemon that will appear. Once you've registered someone as a Friend on your 3DS, just head to their Friend Safari and run around in the grass until you find a shiny. There's no method other than running around, haha.

    I have every shiny I got (since I started counting in 2013) in an Excel Document on my laptop. (I've been meaning to upgrade it to a Google Doc, but I keep procrastinating on it. XD)

    86 Shinies.

    - 3 Masuda Method shinies (Gligar, Stufful and Jangmo-o)
    - 1 Friend Safari shiny (Sandshrew)
    - 25 Chain Fishing shinies (8x Magikarp, 2x Goldeen, 2x Corphish, 2x Barboach, 2x Feebas, Wailmer, Luvdisc, Tentacool, Seaking, Sharpedo, Carvahna, Horsea, Gyarados and Clauncher)
    - 14 Random Encounter shinies (Gurdurr, Altaria, Spinda, Gyarados, Pelipper, Zubat, Magikarp, Raticate, Gumshoos, Petilil, Boldore, Hypno, Inkay and Scraggy)
    - 42 Horde Encounter shinies (6x Machop, 5x Oddish, 4x Zigzagoon, 4x Zubat, 2x Gulpin, 2x Voltorb, 2x Magnemite, 2x Whismur, 2x Wingull, 2x Shuppet, Lotad, Spheal, Meditite, Skarmory, Wurmple, Grimer, Nincada, Electrike, Aron, Spinda, Doduo)
    - 1 Branched Evolution (Shedinja)

    I haven't been able to duplicate my windfall from 2016; which I obtained 52 of my 86 shinies. (Including a single-day record 7 shinies; obtained on my Birthday, May 23rd. All 7 of them were Chain Fishing shinies.)

    So now I've gotten 3 FS shinies. Shelgon, Ponyta, and Klang. The Klang has amazing IVs, the Ponyta has crappy IVs, and I don't know about the Shelgon since I haven't transferred it up yet.

    Ponyta and Klang were less than 5 hours apart.

    I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one who struggled with Kyogre. :p. I also struggled a ton with Rayquaza, but that doesn't totally count because I switched games halfway through. Lol.

    I lost my Ultra Sun copy but via the GTS I got a shiny Giratina. That is the one shiny I have in that game. I tried to SR for a shiny Popplio when I got my Sun copy(I started with Moon.) but I don't have the patience for it.

    On Tuesday I found a shiny Omanyte at 3,734 fossil resets. I was resetting 10 fossils at a time.


    It’s my second fossil reset shiny after Aerodactyl appeared at 656 fossil revives. And it’s my 10th full odds shiny hunt shiny in XY.

    I started this hunt at the end of November.

    Yeah! Full-odds Shiny Sentret via LeafGreen! I chucked my Master Ball to be safe since my SP has a nasty habit of randomly shutting-off sometimes.

    29512260_10216819444787577_6624395104105742388_n.jpg

    Sentret was the very first Pokémon I caught when I started playing the Pokémon games, so I've named her Uno for now. Might change it later. EDIT: Changed her name to Noa.

    A part of me wants to keep her in Gen. III since I've found the fewest number of Shinies on those games, but I'll probably transfer her to HGSS so she can follow me around.

    I can hardly wait to evolve her. Shiny Furret is the cutest! >w<

    Since my last post, I've been working on shinies in Y. I've gotten Shelgon, Ponyta, Klang, Lampent, Phantump, and Masquerain from Friend Safari, and Poliwhirl, Luvdisc, Horsea, and Skrelp (like 20 minutes before this post actually) from chain fishing. Right now I'm working on Shellder

    Jealous of that. I've got two shiny Absols, but neither are my OT. So yeah. I want an OT one.
