Seriously, I checked online, and could find NO shiny hunt guides. And I have the worst luck ever with shinies, and even when one of the eggs I breed IS a shiny, it ends up going to another person! Is there a trick I should know about? Because I can see people getting shinies left and right like it ain't no thing!

So, is there any way to max out my chances of getting a shiny? Because of the site-wide shiny hunt.

Totally...useless



There is no way to tell whether an egg is shine before hatching it, so the only thing you can do is to hatch as many eggs as possible.

I say that's dumb design. People are getting shinies at the speed of sound. BUT NOT ME FOR SOME REASON. There has to be a trick to this. Sure, it mimics the games, but this ain't a Pokemon game, this is a site-wide shiny hunt!

Yeah, they might be higher, but I think it's dumb nonetheless. And even then, I've got a SITE-WIDE SHINY HUNT to finish! Sure there are vouchers, but THEY ARE VERY RARE!!! I know I shouldn't complain about such things, but STILL. And here I am, seeing people get shinies as though it's easy. You could argue that my luck stat isn't maxed, but I don't see a way to level up the stat, DO YOU!?

Dude you have until the end of May to hatch your shiny.
Shinies are determined when an egg is created, not when it's hatched. Keep on hatching eggs and you'll get it. Many users have had hunts go over 1000 eggs, some over 1500 and some even over 2000 eggs. The Site-Wide Shiny Hunt has only been open for 4 days, calm down.

e: Also you've only hatched 133 Flabébe eggs. I'd be more concerned if you've hatched 1330 and no shiny.

The people who hatched the shinies either got them purely by luck--or hatched so many it borders on ridiculous. Usually the latter. They worked hard for it, and they deserve it. That's all any of us can do.

Nah, just hard work with a good bit of luck thrown in. I just finished a 1,783 egg Skrelp hunt recently.

Just keep hatching. The shiny system isn't changing, so you might as well just keep on trying.

This is a SWSH we're talking about! (SWSH is now what I officially call site wide shiny hunts now) It's not gonna be here forever! Heck, I might even miss out on a novelty!

The more time you complain on the forums, the less time you're hatching eggs and potential shinies wink.gif

Man, this thread's going nowhere quick. I'm gonna lock it because it's pretty clear what you need to do in order to get a shiny, and there's not much else that needs to be said.

One more thing, you noticed these multipliers these past three days? People have been abusing the hell out of them so they could hatch more eggs. I'd suggest you take the next 5 hours to hatch a bunch more eggs while you still have it.
