60 hours of Soft Resetting for a Shiny Kyurem and still no luck. What does that tell you?

definitely luck. i see many who have never got another shiny other than gyarados/ppl who never got one legitimately/without RNG reporter. whereas i got 4 not including any of those things, and without the use of chaining Pokeradar.

I thought it was very strange myself. I ran into 2 shinies, on one day, then the next :/

It's the same whenever a new game comes out, more people are playing, so there's more people around to encounter shinies, so it seems like the they lowered the shiny rate when you see all the different topics.

Same rate, really. The Masuda method seems to help a little over a large number of people. Still pretty bad odds for just one person.

i have 8 from 3rd and 4th gen.. no "encounter" yet in unova... =) (not counting those you got from event, pokeradar, trade)..

i tried soft resetting and shiny breeding but i was out of luck.... i guess my luck is more on encountering them in the wild..

you breed 2 pokemons from different region... (e.g. japanese diito, american bulbasaur)... the chance of getting a shiny pokemon hatched in egg is lowered to ~2000
