X/Y Progress Report - Shinies

Rate this Entry
Remember that interview in which Junichi Masuda said that shinies would be more common to find in X/Y? Well, I played a good 15 hours of X, and so far I've encountered two shinies, both within a few hours of one another.
1: Shiny Ledyba on Route 4, female, Level 8
2: Shiny Emolga on Route 10, female, Level 19

Their natures and IVs weren't too good, but I figured that somebody might want them on the GTS. I traded the Ledyba for a male Froakie for with relatively high speed and Special Attack IVs. I traded the Emolga for a Charmander because I figured that I would pick Fennekin once I get the Y version. The Charmander has good Defense IVs.

I've already earned six badges in my X version. Yes, just six. I was too busy trying to max out my pokemon's Pokemon Amie stats so battles can progress more smoothly.

    Oh, it was actually said shinies were more common? I was wondering why it seemed people were getting them left and right.

    I still don't have one, but apparently you get the Pokeradar again, so I'm looking forward to that.

    Did you tip anyone in the area you caught the shinies? I heard that there was a rumor on if you tip NPC's you have a higher chance of finding shinies

    I found a shiny on my play through too.

    But seriously trading for a breedable regular starter that's not a good trade

    Jeez everyone's just speeding along with these games. Ledyba's a pretty decent shiny though, not the best in terms of color, but nice enough.

    Ive done the tipping thing and I have yet to find a shiny. I dunno if it works or not. I don't get the shiny thing this time around but I hope to find one.

    Wait this is actually true? Thought it was like back in B&W at the start everyone was saying they found shinies, but it was just because more people were posting about it or something. During my entire play in Pokemon Black I never found a shiny.

    I think I tipped one of the tour guides inside Parfum Palace, but that was after I caught the Ledyba.

    Two breedable regular starters. Keep in mind that I only have one version.

    And I would not have used the Ledyba or Emolga even if they had good natures.
