Everyone is too lazy to actually tell anybody anything anymore lol 

 

but yes, it seems that way! there are even teams now apparently entirely dedicated to shiny hunting ;o

 

Wb Jate, it is Mariah ~

 

Thanks Mariah, long time no see. That's pretty cool, seems like its via hordes. Could anybody link me a thread about horde mechanics, or how to shiny hunt through them? Ive seen pics with big hordes but my first couple are only 3 pokemon

Yes I has seen that too, also been told that berry farming helps w/ finding shinies too, I suppose a specific type of berry & the use of the move "sweet scent" also apparently helps by attracting more Pokémon or something like that, idunno lol

 

but yes long time in need like 3 or 4 years lol

Certain hordes are 3, others are 5. Spots with 5s that come to mind are cinnabar mansion and it's basement, pattern bush or what ever that heracross spot is, and sky pillar. Try those places.

Sweet scent attracts hordes. Every time you use sweet scent it takes 5 pp from every Pokémon in the party with the move. Leppa berries restore pp.

You can try without hordes as well. Personally I've found 3 shinies specifically by hunting singles and 1 which just showed up as I made my way to some hordes.

How long would an average hunt take you? I know that it is purely RNG but just to get an idea of whether its worth doing or not

Hugely vary, depending on the RNG. Some people hunt for months and get nothing, others hunt for days and get 2 in the same day within a hour of difference.

On average I think people find them in ~20k encounters.  Although I'm at 3-4 weeks of bagons 28k+ singles and not even a golbat from horde found.

Well, that's a given Daryl. Don't want to hint much but last bagon sold was scammed by a known scammer and he's still playing under a new name.
