You should try the Friend Safari if you haven't already, I've had access to it for about two days and I've already got two Shinies from it.

That's actually where I got it from. I'm gonna do this more often. I want a shiny Ditto.

Are people just luck or is the shiny rate higher in the safari?

Seems like it's higher. After all, it did take me 13 years, then all of a sudden I do safari, and run into one.

1 after 13 years of playing is nowhere near enough evidence to consider it anything more than a coincidence.

Fox news get's a pass because they have to go against reality's liberal bias. - SilentS89

My brother found two shinies in White after putting only 10 or so hours into it. In contrast, I put probably 100+ into Black and well above that in Black 2, and nothing.

It's luck. (though I *did* find 2 shinies within an hour of one another in Y... a Klang and Floette, in the Friend Safari).

I can also add on to this. The first time I found a shiny in all my years of Pokemon playing as in the friend safari too. It was a shiny Braixen haha.
