I'd like an official statement from GF about the shiny rate. Personally I don't think it's gone up at all.
The normal rate hasn't changed. There is supposedly a higher chance in the post-game area the Friend Safari, and a new chaining method (Fishing Chaining) means that many water types are easy to get shiny.
The Friend Safari with some luck, and even basic ability with Fishing Chaining is netting many shinies.
Experience beats bias, but words on the Internet are meaningless. 3DS XL FC: 2492-4470-1418 / White 2 FC: 0047-4149-5185 / White FC: 0348-0626-6780
