I'm just wondering this... Because it's not like I've been frequenting the Safari for hours a day.

All I really did was catch some great IV'd Dittos and catch a few other Pokemon that I was looking to breed, like Breloom, Frogadier, Dragonair, etc.

When I do add someone, I go through their safari to see which 3 Pokemon are available, and maybe catch something if I don't already have it.


All that said, I've found 3 Shiny Pokemon already. A Ferroseed, an Audino, and a Braixen.

I've only found maybe 1 or 2 other Shiny Pokemon in the wild, in the last 3 gens, so I can't say that I'm the 'luckiest' guy out there...

tl;dr: Did they increase the chances of encountering shinies in the Friend Safari?

My only shiny in the last few gens has been a shiny tangela from the friend safari.

Could be coincidence, but it's really hard to know for sure without datamining.

From trade or did you find all of those in the wild?
