I apologize if this topic has been created already. Pulled up a search and I really didn't find much.
Recently I've asked a few of my friends about finding shinies in their friend safaris, and all of them told me they found one within the first 1-2 encounters after entering the safari for the first time.
This is making me think that maybe, possibly, the chances of getting a shiny the first time you enter somebody's safari is really really high.
Thoughts on this? --- 3DS FC: 1461 6423 5325

I highly disagree. I entered so many safaris with so many encounters.

Mind telling us when you got it? Like did it take you a while to find it or did you find it almost as soon as you entered the safari? --- 3DS FC: 1461 6423 5325

I dont believe this is the case, i do agree that the rate has increased in the safari but i dont know about the time itself ive gotten 5 shinies from the safari so far and they range from first few encounters for one, and 5+hours for another --- Psn: LunarReaper 3ds Fc: 4038-6130-3791 Electric Safari: Pikachu,Electrode,Manetric

Hm, I'm tempted to say that this probably isn't the case, but my shiny was the second I ran into in that safari >_> --- [::[_]::]Common sense [+[_]::]just because you can doesn't mean you should

Probably just a coincidence but my Shiny Wartortle was also the second encounter. I was looking for Protean Frogadier. --- Deo evicto eum occidam ut se quendam deum fiam.

Thinking about I'm pretty sure my pumpkaboo was the first Pokemon I ran into in that safari.
then yesterday I got a shiny ferroseed first encounter. Then switched safaris and immediately got a shiny klefki.
I almost wanna say yes. --- GAMERTAG:SpankedEagle

Charmeleon, first encounter. Not the first time I entered the safari though but went back to catch HA and bam, Shiny. --- You have as little life as Phoenix and Seth.

I'm starting to think this could be legit because I've been keeping track and all 3 of my shinies were the third encounter in their respective Safaris --- Official Frogadier of the Pokemon X Board 3DS FC: 2020 0131 4897
