Easier to find Shiny Pokemon in Friend Safari?

#1MysticHomerPosted 10/23/2013 3:20:29 AM
I'm just wondering this... Because it's not like I've been frequenting the Safari for hours a day.

All I really did was catch some great IV'd Dittos and catch a few other Pokemon that I was looking to breed, like Breloom, Frogadier, Dragonair, etc.

When I do add someone, I go through their safari to see which 3 Pokemon are available, and maybe catch something if I don't already have it.


All that said, I've found 3 Shiny Pokemon already. A Ferroseed, an Audino, and a Braixen.

I've only found maybe 1 or 2 other Shiny Pokemon in the wild, in the last 3 gens, so I can't say that I'm the 'luckiest' guy out there...

tl;dr: Did they increase the chances of encountering shinies in the Friend Safari?

I've foud 2 shinies in Y. One was a random Skiddo and the other from Chain Fishing. I still haven't found a shiny in FS.

My only shiny in the last few gens has been a shiny tangela from the friend safari.

Could be coincidence, but it's really hard to know for sure without datamining.
