With friend safari? I heard friend safari has a irregular shiny encounter rate if we put the shiny charm into play would we be able to get a better theoretical percentage of finding one? --- Poliwag hax shttp://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/randombattle7716029 *OFFICIAL DOWN SYNDROME OF X/Y BOARDS*
I think it doesn't count as a normal "wild" encounter. Someone should ask Serebii --- R - Official Matador of the Shin Megami Tensei IV board - Rose_Mage's loving husband 3DS FC: 4682-9838-9692 TSV: 841
I'm pretty sure shiny charm is for breeding, though probably I'm wrong.
This Key Item increases the likelihood that you will encounter Shiny Pokémon. When you have the item in your bag, then the chances of encountering Shiny Pokémon in the wild is increased to 300% of normal, making it a 1 in 2,730.6 chance. If, however, you're using the Masuda Method to breed, it increased it from 1 in 1,365.3 down to 1 in 1024. As of Pokémon X & Y, it only works on Wild Pokémon and increases the rate from 1 in 4096 to 1 in 1365.3.
