I received a hacked shiny litten over wonder trade. I've kept it for breeding later on.

As of posting this, I just got my first ever 7th Gen shiny. It was a Yungoos on Route 2!

None as of yet. I have a feeling it will be a good while before I encounter my first legit shiny. I know the rate is something like 1 in 4,000 but eh, I'm not really seeking them out just yet anyways.

On my quest to catch a pichu in the beginning of the game that first pichu was so rare that I actually found a shiny pikipek before I found one pichu lol. Anyone else find a shiny yet.
I personally haven't had any yet but my brother found a shiny Trumbeak before I had even opened the game...

One of my friends has also bred like 5 shinies already. Sandygast, all 3 starters, Dhelmise, etc. It seems to be higher this generation?

I think I heard the shiny rate in this game was lowered to like, 1 in 4000. I've only had my copy of Moon for four days now and I now have my first shiny, which was my aforementioned Yungoos (now a Gumshoos).

I believe it's been 1 in 4,096 since X/Y, which is half of what it was before then (1 in 8,192). Speaking of "1 in 4,000" though, there's an NPC in Sun/Moon that literally says the odds of finding a shiny are about 1 in 4,000.

I haven't encountered any shiny Pokemon yet, though.

The other day I was looking for Mimikyu. Found a shiny Golbat before I found a Mimikyu. Still, random encounter is nice.

Also I swear if I get a shiny Fearow I will be annoyed.

I've just caught a shiny Araquanid right in the middle of having a doubt on choosing Pkm for my team. Since her base Speed is 42 and having the Sassy nature, I'm gonna have Trick Room team, I guess.

I caught a shiny Goldeen while searching for Feebas.
You know something is messed up when a regular fish is rarer than a shiny. @___@
Did you focusing on the bubbling spots? The chance of encountering Feebas are much higher there. I caught one with this way.

I feel encountering shinies is way to easy in this gen...

I hunted and already found 3 (Being rockruff, formantis, and a freakin male soladin DAMNIT!) in under 24 hours (No shiny charm)... I also feel that SOS chaining is way to easy to execute unlike chain fishing or pokeradar chaining which needed your full attention.

Also found a random shiny goldeen while fishing for a Wishywashy
Don't be ashamed of what you love... even if other people find it embarrassing or pathetic embrace it... Love what you love, you'll be happier that way.
