I'm glad you're being considerate. happy.gif However, it's impossible to give someone a Pokemon or trade on this site, only releasing to the shelter. My guess is the person who released it knew that they were releasing it on purpose. Some of us have accidentally released shinies, and we just have to resign our fate and accept our mistake, lol.

You can hold onto the shiny, or release it, but there's no guarantee it will go back to the original person, since anyone can pick it up.

There is in fact a guarantee that it will never go back to its original owner. The Egg Shelter and Safari Zone are coded to prevent you from seeing Pokemon you previously owned.

Well, I somehow stupidly goofed just a few minutes ago cause swear I didn’t have my SWSH Lechonk that I evolved and got in only 22 eggs clicked while quick releasing from my party since I have no room for new Pokémon, but should’ve had it locked down, anyway. Dunno if I am unable to adopt it back from the Shelter immediately after release or if someone else could adopt it then release it, I still wouldn’t be able to get it back. Even if it’d take hours of hunting to find it possibly… anyone know or can help me out? Pretty please… this was only the 7th base form species I got shiny (12th total) and wish I hadn’t freaked up so freaking bad. ;( Though I doubt even if I could reclaim it, I’d get my recorded shiny hunt stats back on it… or worse, if I keep being active on this site, will get credit for having completed the SWSH when I got rid of the Pokémon that was my intended hunt. I don’t even know if I can get multiple rewards for multiple hunts during this time… and this was a personal record to date, which netted me 2 achievements hadn’t gotten yet.

I dunno how long it takes for released Pokémon to show up in the Shelter, if not right away as I would imagine or if the site’s rules forbid you from readopting a Pokémon you chose to throw away immediately or ever again. Been feverishly checking the Shelter ever since I did it, I honestly did not expect to make such a stupid mistake, desperate for someone to help me out here… though it’s almost enough to make me leave this site and never come back, only came back 3 weeks ago today after almost 13 years since I’d forgotten about this and somehow happened to remember it out of the blue.

(Well, someone beat me to adopting my shiny, but dunno if I could still get an answer to some of my questions here.)
