You probably don't recognize me and that's because this is my first time responding to the Pokémon board but I've been a member of game FAQs for over 2 years.

Anyway I believe that's it's a well known fact that friend safaris are the best places to grind for shinies as the chances of getting ones are higher. Also the chances of you getting the shiny you want increases as only 2-3 Pokémon can coexist in a single safari with chances of your desired Pokémon appearing fluctuating between 20% of the time to around 75% of the time.

What I want to know is how many of you actually spent several days grinding for shinies? And what are your faviorite captures?

I caught like 5 shiny Bibarel within a single hour at the cost of all my luck for the rest of the week. I have dozens more of different shinies but they're shared between my 2 3ds so I can't name them off the top of my head. Within the past 3 days I managed to kill and catch shiny Growlithe, catch a shiny Slugma ( looks like liquid mercury ) and just recently caught a shiny Larvesta.

I randomly got a Shiny Marowak with HA (Hidden Ability), Adamant Nature and 4 Perfect IVs in Atk, Def, SpDef and HP.
I made it into a competitive Marowak.

I got a Shiny Pikachu while HA hunting.
Hardy Nature and 2 IVs in Spe and Def.

Finally, the BIGGEST, and most utterly devastating Shiny I have ever obtained legit, is.....
SHINY COMBEE
.....male
FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
