    Luckiest moment was probably when I found a Ditto with 4 perfect IVs in the friend safari.

    Also caught a shiny Dragonair in the fs and hatched a shiny Scyther (non-masuda method).

        There's a few different ways in X & Y to find shinies. There's chaining with the PokeRaider, chain fishing, breeding with the Masuda method (aka breeding two Pokemon from different regions), horde hunting, and friend safari hunting.

        I've been pretty successful hunting in the friend safari and, more recently, horde hunting. I've tried other methods, but I'm not very good at chain fishing (I tend to not have quick enough reflexes to catch the Pokemon on the line every single time) and my longest chain with the PokeRaidar is only like 9 or so.

        Anyway, it just requires a lot of patience and perseverance! I like to hunt while I watch shows on Netflix or YouTube so that I don't get bored just doing the same thing over and over in my game. I hunt while I read and sometimes while I cook. XD

        X & Y is the first version where I've found a shiny! (My first was shiny Charmeleon in a friend safari)! The only other shiny I've ever gotten in any Pokemon game before X & Y was the shiny Gyarados that everyone can get in Gold/Silver. Now I have a bunch of shinies! :D

        You can find video tutorials for shiny hunting on YouTube if you're unsure how to go about it. Good luck!

        Back to the topic at hand... during my quest to find that elusive shiny female Mareep, I have been able to catch a shiny Miltank and a shiny Tauros! I'm pretty happy about that! I also have caught a second male shiny Mareep and a few more shiny Wingulls! XD Oh well! I won't give up that easily!

          It seems to be easier this gen for sure. I was lucky enough to get two shinies from eggs before Instacheck went down -- a Dratini and an Eevee (that I plan on evolving into Umbreon). I also found a shiny Grumpig in a Friend Safari totally randomly! I would definitely recommend running around in there, I've seen loads of people talking about the shinies they've found there.

          I have only had one shiny before this generation, aside from the red Gyrados in the G/S/C/HG/SS storylines -- a shiny Rattata (womp) in FireRed. Once I've gotten my Dex complete in X, I plan on trying to breed using the Masuda method -- I've never tried it before.

                managed to acquire Charmander very early on via wonder trade, got a wondertrade tepig and GTS'd for squirtle to complete my original starters for the team.

                I got a Cyndaquil on WT, Typhlosion is my HM slave, whilst blastoise carries surf and charizard has fly.

                my favourite has to be catching Yveltal in two throws......with a premier ball!!!

                love premier balls, caught all my Ruby and Leaf Green legends with them (didn't do it in Diamond, which I had and also wish I hadn't got rid of diamond and all my old pokemon/legendaries.

                but yeah, Yveltal in a White ball is cool just want an FS to get a Charmander/meleon/izard shiny in a white ball so I can have black charizard Y now!



                damn my phone browser putting html all over!!!

                    Hatched a Clauncher after 11 eggs! (Wish I had the same luck on Froakie) And caught Mewtwo with my first Poké Ball in my X file. Didn't use capture power either.

                      Besides obvious things like shinies and good Wonder Trades...

                      I frequently challenged my Chespin by having him take on my rival Serena's entire time by himself without using items. He was able to succeed most of the time, but failed during the final rival battle which mattered the most. When it turned out there was one last rival battle post story mode, I really wanted him to prove himself... and he did, but it was only because Pokemon Amie allowed him to dodge 2 supereffective attacks in a row. Probably the only time that I actually enjoyed getting hax entire story mode.

                      Although examples of the obvious things would be randomly hatching a shiny and receiving a Kee Berry and a few 5 IV good nature pokemon on WT.

                          One of my luckiest moments was when, well, I first started to play the game as soon as I got my copy of Pokemon X on release date. Sounds maybe a bit too cliche, but then, all the nostalgia came back again and I haven't felt this way before back when I was a kid and Pokemon was "everything" back then :3

                          Also, I decided back in january last year, when Pokemon X/Y were announced and the starters were revealed, that I wanted to go with Fennekin, and I still stick with her! i really wanted to have a shiny one as well, and after DAYS of hatching eggs, patience, perseverance and some luck, I was in absolute heaven when that cute little shiny Fennek appeared on my screen after hatching 458 Eggs! Now, it's one of my most trusted partners as a shiny Delphox! =^o^=

                          I will remember this moment forever... :3

                              The moment when I got a critical capture on Zygarde... then another when the first one didn't work.

                                When I encountered Yvetal in Pokemon Y, I didn't know when I could save and went straight into battle. I thought I would have trouble catching but I would try my best!!!... I just lowered its health down and caught it on my second great ball. Very lucky if you ask me.

                                Another lucky moment is when I received a level 63 Japanese Xerneas (even more lucky for me as I have Y version).

                                One of my happiest and luckiest moments is catching a shiny Luxio in Friend Safari. Finally, a shiny I will actually use in a team.

                                By the way, here is my proof, and Zorro is my male Zangoose (not related to this moment, but Zangoose is also another lucky moment for me), which I use for catching other Pokemon (with False Swipe)
                                Spoiler:


                                anyone curious - Zangoose was a special catch for me. Quick Story:
                                Spoiler:
                                It's X exclusive Pokemon, but will appear in Pokemon Y in hordes with Seviper. Issue is that Seviper will only attack Zangoose. I remember trying over 30 times to try and catch one, but every time I was close, the Sevipers managed to faint Zangoose.

                                I would run away disappointed.

                                Then I found out that Lucario's Heal Pulse will give health to one Pokemon, so with patience and using Heal Pulse about 5 times, I was able to rescue one Zangoose from Seviper's furious attacks. Caught it.

                                Feel happy that it is now part of my team, and helps me catch other Pokemon, none of the other Pokemon that learn False Swipe I like so Zangoose was my main choice.

                                  I would say that something really lucky that happened was that i was in the friend safari, and i was about to start shiny hunting in this friend safari and after 5 random encounters i got a shiny Luxio, which is evolved into a shiny Luxray now! this is even luckier to me because this was the pokemon out of the 3 that i wanted shiny and i got it!!

                                  The fact I found and caught a shiny Remoraid exactly a week after I caught a shiny Clauncher. I was actually trying to look for another Pokemon when I fished up the Remoraid. It's odd that it's only halfway through the month and I already have 3 shinies in X.

                                        Congratulations! I'm already jealous... I haven't encountered any shiny after 2 months, kind of sad.

                                            Nintendo did a good job on the shiny rate for this game. Obtainable, but still requires a bit of work.
