    I feel like people are just jumping the gun on that one.
    We've seen Shiny patches with it that had Shinies in them, so yes, it's undeniably confirmed.

    Wow, congrats!
    When a shiny Ditto copies a pokemon, does it become their shiny form? If it does you should face Zygarde/Xerneas/Yveltal and find out what they look like shiny :P

    From gen IV and onwards Transform copies the opponent's exact form and shininess, I doubt they would change it back now.

    Shiny odds definitely changed. EVERYBODY is finding them, including myself. It seems like horde battles increase the chance of finding shinies, because that's where I got my shiny Geodude and I've heard plenty of hordes with shiny Pokemon stories already.

    I hope someone finds an all-shiny horde. Then my life will be complete.

    Does anyone know about which shaking grass will have the best chance for a shiny with pokeradar? i always choose the farthest one away, and i have had no luck so far. I haven't found a shiny since gen 3.

    Found a shiny Geodude in a horde battle. Thought it had sturdy like all Geodudes do. It didn't have sturdy like most Geodudes do.

    Usually thats the case, pick one thats farthest away out of 4 moving patches.

    My longest chain so far was 18 on Fletching. I suck at Poke Radar.

    Also, has anyone heard the rumor about tipping $1000 and having finding shinies soon after?

    Thank you very much. ^^ though I was hoping Shiny CharizardX would be Orange, haha. Can't wait to use it.

    Also, that Souvenir might have something to do with Shinies? Interesting.
    Is apparantly Dragon Type in the Friend Safari. Neat.

    All these people finding shinies makes me wonder if the chances to find one really did increase or if we're just hearing more about them because everyone and their mother is playing this game currently.

    Also wondering, if the chances *have* increased, if this affects hatching eggs too? I really want a shiny Fennekin and Litleo and I'm thinking about trying the Masuda Method for them.

    So what's the best method for shinies atm? Hours of encounters in the safari, masuda method, hordes or poke radar(where ca you use this effectively for kalos pokemon, can you use honey during a high chain?)

    No idea if my experiences with shinies are useful, but I'll share what I know anyway. I found a shiny Wobbuffet in the Friend Safari. I did nothing special prior, like tipping or stuff like that.

    Afterwards, I've also tried tipping (sit at the terrace for 5000 bucks, and tip 1000 bucks) and then triggering a few hordes of pokémon nearby, in case whatever theoretical buff you get wears off after a number of steps, but I saw no shinies there at all. Maybe you need to tip more often, or maybe the odds are only slightly higher to make no practical difference. Or I got unlucky!

    the tipping is utter rubbish, it has no correlation to people finding shiny pokemon, other than people being unable to link coincidence to fact

    Lol that'd be awesome, unfortunately it just turns in to a mirror image of the pokemon it's copied. Also as far as tipping goes, since I heard that rumor being linked to shinies, I did start tipping a grand every time, and it didn't take long for me to get this Ditto. Of course that could be coincidence.

    I caught my first shiny today

    A horsea, instead of blue, it's turqoise (my fave colour ), and the amazing thing is, I just wanted to buy a Horsea for my team, and I had NEVER encountered or battled one before in my game, so I just looked it up.
    Went to the place, used the right stuff, and the first 3/4 pokemon were not a Horsea, then, I encountered a Horsea. Female and shiny, amazing, huh

    It's nature is Lonely (which boosts attack and decreases defense), which is a bummer, since Horsea is a Sp Atker, but, I'm way too happy with the fact that it's female AND shiny
    Pokemon X is AMAZING

    Personally my highest chain thus far is 16 skiddo.
    Is this confirmed?

    Perhaps, but we don't know for sure yet either way. Judging by some of these accounts there's an awful lot of coincidence going on, so instead of dismissing any and all claims I'll try to keep an open mind for a while and see if there's any truth to it Tipping is in the game for a reason, so it'd be nice to know what the reason is, even if it's not boosting one's shiny encounter rate!
