Well, if it helps they upped the shiney rates..

Still calling BS to this. I've yet to see one at all this Gen....Last I seen one...ONE...was Gen4.

I've found two, without chaining or masuda, before the 3rd gym of the game. They were my first ever shinies.

I'd like an official statement from GF about the shiny rate. Personally I don't think it's gone up at all.

The normal rate hasn't changed. There is supposedly a higher chance in the post-game area the Friend Safari, and a new chaining method (Fishing Chaining) means that many water types are easy to get shiny.

The Friend Safari with some luck, and even basic ability with Fishing Chaining is netting many shinies.
Experience beats bias, but words on the Internet are meaningless.

I chain fished for a day and got nothing, and I know I was doing right because I checked my chains with the guy in the fishing house, so once again, RNG still hates a few of us
I am free of all prejudices,
I hate everyone equally.

Shinies mean nothing now. With the new chaining people are getting like 5 a day.

Those are the water types mostly no? Others shouldnt devalue too much.

Then again shinies will be crap again come december.
