@AregularFrankiefan In fact this is quite over odds! The odds for sos chaining are 1/315 without shiny charm when your chain is over 30 encounters. I have the shiny charm in this game so the odds for finding a shiny are higher, 1/273 encounters. I'm currently on a chain of 903, my second longest chain in terms of encounters but my longest in terms of time spent. I've never had my ds on for so long...omg. My longest chain ended on me finding a shiny caterpie when I was searching for Goomy. Metapod has a very common calling rate so that took less than 2 days. This one? More than a week and continuing.


Wow! I admittedly haven't played a game since Red/Blue, so I'm not familiar with how shiny chaining works, but that sounds both impressive and harrowing! Good luck in finally getting what you're after in the very near future!

Oh, TIL. Legitimately didn't know that SOS calling had a completely different shiny rate. o_o Still, good luck, and I hope RNG is kind to you soon.



On an entirely different subject...

Signed up with Pikipek because it's the least unappealing shiny of the trio

Good to see Pyukumuku in the top 10, hope we get to hunt it next time.

Ahhhh can't help but to feel bummed out about the choices for this SWSH. I also just went with Pikipek because out of the three its the most "ok" one to me. Oh well. : p

Bergmite making it into SWSH feels rather... random? Like Alomomola in past year, as the pokemon is among the unpopular ones.
Bruxish was among my votes for several SWSH's, and i am glad it's finally in.

Going to focus on from point of shard priorities, so:
Bergmite > Pikipek > Bruxish.

That's assuming if i won't get a streak of bad luck again.

Guys, after a tiring 1021 encounters chain I FAILED my Tauros/Miltank hunt. That was 2 days ago, I felt so miserable, it was a stupid mistake, I was multitasking and forgot to change the cursor thingie to BAG instead of ATTACK and well, I killed the Tauros that was on battle. I felt like crying.

On another note, I'm glad Bruxish is one of the choices for this month's swsh, I voted for it. Also, its shiny is so Chrismas-y grin.gif

Nooooo Mikaku Onchi, I was really rooting for you! ;_;
Will you be trying again later?

I'm actually pretty pleased with the SWSH options, even if I didn't vote for them. I don't have any of them yet!
I'll be starting off with Pikipek, because I love the Pokémon as well as the shiny colors, so cute!
After that, I'll hunt Bruxish, those shiny colors are awesome. And if that all works out, I'll throw in a Bergmite hunt, too!

Sorry to hear that Mikaku sad.gif

Also these are interesting choices. I already have my Bi Flag Bird, so I'll pick Bruxish. I'm very curious who voted for Bergmite and why.

I started with Pikipek since I love its shiny coloration the best of the three, and just hatched it this morning. Moved on to Bergmite since Bruxish kinda scares me, haha.
