Some people say tipping help's shiny chances. Let's see if we can prove it or not.

Post how much you tip and what shinies you have from X/Y.

Me-
I tip alot, usually the 2nd highest amount.

On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound just got re-released in the US.

I tip any time I'm prompted, and I spend 500 Pokedollars every time (mostly due to my low amounts of money). I found my first two successful RE shiny captures within the span of 24 hours recently- an Axew and a Mime Jr.

Be warned, I may jump to epic fails of conclusions and general other errors. In advance, I apologise.

I started tipping $1000 to the photo person ever since I heard that rumor.
2 shinies: Vivillon and Ledyba, on the same day.

I tip 1000 at every opportunity. Haven't seen any Shinies.

Tipping does nothing.Dont think it does just because you were lucky.

I have a routine. I go to 2 cafes, tip 1000 at every option, then go to the Battle Chateau, and tip the maid and butler 1000 each. I've run into 4 shiny Pokemon today and a total of 13 altogether in Y over the past 8 days. I think tipping works but it could just be that the shiny rate is higher in the Safari.
