I keep hearing this, but has it ever been confirmed its exactly 1/30000?  I've heard people say its "around" 1/30000.  I've been wondering if its actually 1/32768.

 

Donator status as described if the shiny rate is 1/30000 would be is 1/27272.72- and higher ups will say  its 1/27000 when asked which isn't correct.  So I wonder if the actual shiny rate is similar.

These things are really weird, even I saw a player meet 2 shinies in a encounter with a group of wild pokemon.

 

I also saw a player escape from a battle with shiny but encounter a shiny again in the next battle.

Yeah, I'd have to see that to believe it.  I don't think its impossible that someone figured something out, but idk man.  idk

it was stated that the shiny rate was roughly 1 in 30k by kyu himself. i am pretty sure he said something along the line of not being exactly 1 in 30k and that i vary slightly from one person to another for safety reason or something like that so this would explain why some may say "around". personally i assume that it is something like 1 in 30k +-0.5k.

 

but i am wondering where did you get those number from?

Gen 3 games were 1/8192 and its possible they just multiplied some mechanic by 4 without much more work.

 

The donator status is just how they describe it as "a 10% increase in shiny rate".  that means instead of 1/30k you have a 1.1/30k or 1/27272.  1/27000 isn't an exact 10% increase from 1/30000 like a lot of people think.

interesting i never noticed the result was different if you raised the odd insted of lowering the number of possible outcome. but since 1 in 27k is still fairly close to the result of a number that isn't exact to begin with it's just easier to stat with 1 in 27k.

 

for the 4 time the original rate theory i feel like the rng used in the original game may not be the same has our rng here wich would make implementing the orginal rate x4 slightly harder than making a new one.

I am largely disappointed that I have not been tagged yet in this thread to resolve any doubts.

 

Shiny rate is fair.

 

yeah sorry no one was saying it was unfair for once or even ranting about them not getting shiny (at least not directly)

their was also talk of modifiers used to keep suspected botters from finding shinys. havent heard about this in years idk if thats just not ok to talk about these days, or if it isnt done anymore. that might be the "about"
