If you increase rates it makes them less special

Which only matters to the people selfish enough to want them to remain as rare as possible because they don't want their collection to be worth less. The Shining Charm, the Pokeradar, and even the Masuda method require a lot of effort, so it's not as though you're getting an increased rate for free.


True and I hope you're not calling me selfish the only shiny pokemon I've seen is the red gyarados

Just bring back the shiny charm. Reward players who invest time into the game and not the ones who abuse the RNG.


What is RNG and ob and uu and stuff?

The way it sounds, TC means to just increase the shiny rate in general.

I never had luck with that garbage.

A 29 chain of Starly ruined by a Bidoof.

Even after I learned how to use it to get long chains, I almost never reached 40 on my first try. It took me 3 tries to get a 40 chain for Beldum, but it was so worth it.


Definitely. I could never get Beldum. It's just too difficult to use the PokeRadar on that route because of the sandstorm. I did manage to get a shiny Sneasel on one of the snowy routes though.

my idea how to fix it
-get shiny charm within first hour of gameplay
-once a day their will be shiny "swarms" for 10 minutes which means that for ten minutes you have a 1 in 100 chance of seeing a wild shiny(does NOT stack with shiny charm)
-breeding a shiny pokemon increases the chances of another shiny (stacks with shiny charm,and nature/abilty passing but matsuda method doesn't work) 1 in 3000
-no more event pokemon where it's impossible to get them shiny
-catching shinies in general increases chances of finding more:starting with your second shiny(flat 1 in 8000 chance) then your fifth(1 in 5000) then your tenth(1 in 3000) then finally your 100th(1 in 2000 chance)

catching shiny pokemon also rewards you with an item for every 5 you find (up to the first 20)

43 shinies in 5th gen. Lowering the rate doesn't make any of mine worthless.
