yeah and if you run from 3 shinies in a row and breed a charmander it will be shiny

bruh

Wow ur hilarious, no this was a serious question. The games rng is a mystery to all of us, just trying to figure it out. If you knew anything about rng you'd know its anything but random and based on an algorithm, running from a shiny may have something to do with it. 

also, game developers have all but admitted to using an algorithm when they said that the shiny rate takes a variety of factors into consideration, including how much the game thinks you're botting.

It may be fair, I don't know. "Fair" can also mean a lot of things. I just don't appreciate my question being made fun of, it is entirely possible that there is still a static shiny rate, and last caught shiny is one of the factors involved rather than last shiny encountered ... they did lie about the shiny rate being the same as the games for a long time... I was just wondering if anyone else had a similar experience of running from a shiny and encountering another one shortly after much like I and the previous poster had, thats what forums like this are for... could've just been a coincidence but still

I mean people have also met two shinies in two back to back single encounters and caught both, 3 shinies in the same day, 2 in the same horde etc. So you're saying after you catch/run from a shiny, as in, encounter it, you're likely to find another one or aren't likely to find another one? Sounds pretty random to me.

No, no they didn't. I mean they did like 4 or 5 years ago (and even then they said it was a VERY temporary softban while they were investigated) but then they said they fixed that and that wasn't the case anymore, not even that long after.

 

And whether the devs lie about shiny chances or not (they're not, most people with lots of shinies average to around 30k), it's still fair. Cause SRIF.

 

Though I'd be down to test this out. Run away from every shiny I meet hell yeah

You're probably right, I was just saying it wasn't out of the realm of possibility, a completely random number generator is hard to accomplish, there is usually some sort of input/output, people thought that shinies were completely random in the actual games too but their rng system was figured out, either way from what I've seen/experienced it is around that 30k mark and relativel fair, imo an algorithm that included the how long its been since you've encountered or caught a shiny would be pretty fair too. I would've been willing to test it out while looking for shiny deino by running from any shiny durants, but i got my shiny deino yesterday pNu2E6B.pngjmnW3Ns.png?1

It was dynamic at one point^

Just so you know, back then the rate was a lie by the devs, nowadays it might stil be, and who knows if it really was, they never showed you a snipet of the formula they're using.

Who knows if they ever even changed it, they could've just changed what they're telling you it is to be more accurate with the expected results.
