Haha, there's a bit of a double meaning there. :p I have a male Siamese kitten called Lucky and yeah, was how I was feeling at the time. xD

Also, a bit of advice: either I'm somehow getting very lucky or 1) They've lowered the rate in general or 2) The Friend Safari gives an increased chance to find shiny Pokemon. I'm quite inclined to believe the latter tbh since I've found both of them in there so far.

wow, I think I have to agree with Retribution since I just caught a shiny espurr in the friend safari as well which is where I caught the Pumpkaboo before and two shinys in two days seems very unlikely without increased odds.


it's female and has it's Hidden Ability as well which is especially good.

I hatched a shiny Pumpkaboo (which is now a Gourgeist) earlier after only 10 eggs using the Masuda method! It's funny because I had just taken the mother out of the daycare because I was getting bored, but I figured I might as well hatch the last two eggs I had on me. Sure enough, the last one was the lucky one!

Here are some pics:

I couldn't be happier with him, and he's currently being EV trained.

Never found a shiny, and after beating the game still nothing yet.
I don't think the rumor about tipping is true since I tipped 1000 every time and still nothing.
Friend safari is not helping either.

I encountered two shinies in Reflection Cave during five minutes: first a Mr. Mime and then a Solosis (which is VERY similar to the regular colored one). Luckily I managed to catch both.

I wish that were true. I've visited the Friend Safari several times and haven't seen a shiny yet. Although I did catch a Charmeleon, so I'm cool with that. :D

You guys are so lucky, finding shinies right away! I'm already at Frost Cavern and I haven't found a single one. The only shiny I've ever seen in my 8 years of playing Pokemon is a Paras in HeartGold and I deleted the file that it was on without transferring it... WHY!!!

Once I beat the E4, my shiny/Pokedex hunt begins...

Damn I hope I get a few shiny Pokemon on this game, only non-scripted shiny I've ever found was on Soul Silver last year, found a shiny Graveler in Victory Road or whatever used self-destruct I think you can all guess I wasn't the slightest bit amused.
Feel free to add me on whatever guys!

I've played since Gen 1 and never seen a Shiny. Never hatched one, only have them from trades or the freebies in game or event. Terrible luck I say but I have a feeling this is my generation.

It's too unlikely for this many people to be receiving shinies, especially with the games only being out for a few days. There's a rumor flying about that giving tips to the NPC's in-game increases the chances of finding a shiny, whether this is true or not I don't know. Although it must serve some sort of purpose, and it would definitely be a worthy trade-off if true. Oh and I still haven't found a single shiny yet!

Or just the rumor that shiny rates were decreased for the entire game. That or friend safari is a shiny haven haha.

40+ hours and still no shiny. I've abused the Friend Safari for at least 5 of those. I don't believe there is any increase to the encounter rate at all. None of my friends who are all farther have found one either.

Yeah I've been literally running around on Route 16 looking for shiny Pumpkaboo for 20+ hours straight. Granted I found a shiny Foongus within the first hour, I feel like the latter 19 I've had more ample encounters for another shiny.
