What I mean to say is, have you ever hatched a Shiny when you didn't particularly want one?

I did once with a Gible. After it took me over a week to get a Shiny Beldum, I hatched a Shiny Gible on the 14th egg. Just my luck... I still love her though.

When I decided to start breeding a team, I mass bred Abra so I could have one Synchronizer of every "good" nature, and accidentally ended up with a shiny. Almost released it because I didn't notice it at first.

Same for me. I don't look for shinies. They just come to me :)

I hatched a shiny Goomy while looking for a 5 iv female one to breed. They were both mine so I guess I got the luckiest chance by default as most people use different version pokes to increase the chances. That one in particular came up with 31 ivs in hp atk dfs & satk, I'm sure it has high ivs just not 31 in speed which is the set I wanted. but it has hydration instead of Gooey. I already have my 5 iv Gooey Goodra but I will train that one too of course. For the Rain dance team I want to make.

Hatched a shiny Fennekin when all I wanted was a 5 IV one.

It's useless.

Yes, I was trying for a 5 IV Honedge, and about the 4th one is shiny. I never particularly wanted shinies, I got them by chance.

I'm always confused when people ask about accidental shinies. It makes it sound like it was a mistake "oh I was breeding abras but accidentally one was shiny, damn =\"

Technically, I suppose I did. I WAS actively breeding for a shiny Beldum, but I wasn't expecting to get it NEARLY as quickly as I did.

And I suppose "accidental shinies" are sort of my goal when I breed. I use a foreign 6IV Ditto for breeding, regardless of whether or not I'm MM'ing, on the off chance I just happen to get a random shiny.
