During that Magikarp event. Just a shiny Magikarp, I don't believe it was even the best version of one that I could get, I just gave up at some point.

Still trying to finish my Galar dex, and then hopefully my first shiny will present itself.

Caught a shiny Magikarp from the event, technically. Netted a shiny Braviary from a normal Max Raid. Counts as the first "real" shiny.

Do you need gym badges to catch a shiny? I've been hunting chewtle for 70+ hours and stopped counting after 10k encounters any help would be greatly appreciated
Read nothing that suggests that. Found a video of someone catching a shiny Wooloo on Route 1. Seems possible. Cannot rule out editing/hacking shenanigans, of course.

Good luck on your shiny hunt.

A random shiny Swirlix I got while breeding and traded away.

No, you don't need badges. The base chance of finding a shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield is 1 in 4096. If you're at 3 times that you're just unlucky.

Have you been fainting the Chewtles you find or running away from them?
Because you can improve your odds if you faint them. According to Serebii:
At 50 Pokemon (Chewtle) Fainted your odds become: 1 in 2048
At 100 Pokemon Fainted: 1 in 1365.333
At 200 Pokemon Fainted: 1 in 1024
At 300 Pokemon Fainted: 1 in 819.2
At 500 Pokemon Fainted: 1 in 682.6667

Edit: Apparantly these numbers are separate from chaining which will increase your odds even further. Try running from everything that isn't Chewtle, and faint every chewtle you come across until you get a shiny one.

My first SwSh shiny is also the only one I've gotten on SwSh (though I'd need to check), and it's an Alcremie I got from a Max Raid battle. Was even one of those new square sparkle shinies too.

I'd been trying for a Shiny Snom but went back into the town for something and stumbled into the wrong route on my way out where I noticed glowing water. Decided to fish for the heck of it and was surprised by a Shiny Wishiwashi! I'm not keen on using fish Pokémon since their levitating never made sense to me, but its Schooling looked so cool!

First shiny I got was a Shiny Bounsweet. And first shiny hunted Pokemon I got was Skwovet after thousand and thousands of encounters with one. Never shiny hunting again!

Out of curiosity, was that with or without the shiny charm? (the one you hunted)

lol...no. I'm way too lazy to complete the Pokedex, so I was at full odds. I even went over odds (after the odds were improved by battling thousands of Skwovet) and found a shiny Rookidee and Blipbug while hunting it.

I wish the Shiny Charm was easier to get, though, it would help so much.

I can’t do money puns. It just doesn’t make any cents.
