    Default Friend Safari

    Friend Safari thread! I don't know what you'll talk about but I have a question. Are shiny Pokémon more common in the friend safari? I found my first Shiny Pokémon ever after about 50 encounters in the friend safari and I've been playing since R/S.

    I literally just went back there to see if this was true and the 3rd Pokemon I came across, a Ninetales, wound up being Shiny.

    Apparently a lot of people are finding shinies in Friend Safari.

    Damn, that's kinda silly. Doesn't this defeat the whole idea of Shiny Pokemon?

    I've been in the friend safari a bit and haven't found any. In fact, I've played Y for nearly a total of 90 hours and haven't found a single shiny, despite them apparently being more common in general.

    I guess so, but I've been in Friend Safari many times before and never came across one so I guess I just got lucky. The chain-fishing method landed me quite a few shinies but that limits the kind of pokemon you'll get.

    I'll see how many more shinies I come across in Friend Safari before I decide if they became too common.

    i've been in a grass type safari and after 3 encounter with Ivysaur, the 4th was a shiny if that can help you to find the answer to your question

    I've spent hours in Friend Safari and I've yet to find a shiny in all my 15 years of Pokemon.

    Hope they are, it'd bring a lot more incentive for me to use the Friend Safari.

    Found a Shiny Pachirisu today randomly in Friend Safari. I spent hours trying for a Shiny Charmeleon with no luck and I only seem to get these Shinies when I'm not looking for them haha.

    So 2nd FS Pokemon so far.

    Edit: 3RD SHINY! A Charmeleon. Was hoping to get one : D Modest Nature and Solar Power too. Will make a good Mega Charizard Y.
    Also hatched a Shiny Charmander today using Matsuda Method to give to my best friend : D The Charmeleon was gonna be backup in case none of my eggs hatched shiny but I guess I'll keep the Charmeleon for myself!

    I'm on the same situation. 80h played on my X, 20h on my Y. Not a single shiny. On the other hand, my friend managed to get a shiny sneasel the first time he ran thru that snowy route...

    @Topic
    Some ppl are reporting a higher chance of shinies on friend safari. I do hope it's true, because come on... it's a shiny with two 31 IVs! Only issue is hunting down the person with the FC that generates the pokémon you want @ the friend safari :P

    Up to now, I've got three shinies on my X version. The first on, an Ursaring, I got by randomly walking around the flowers on Route 21. The second one, a Cloyster, I got in one of my friend safaries. The third one, a Clawitzer, I got via chain fishing in Cyllage City. Three shinies, three different methods. Therefore I'm not quite sure if the probability of meeting a shiny in a friend safari is higher than normal.

    I am requiring someone who has a Dragon friend Safari that contains Dragonair. If anybody has has what I am looking for, please PM me. If you need to be convinced to add me, my safari contains Ditto, which can come quite useful for some.

    It is higher than normal. I have yet to come across Shinies in regular routes (except for chain fishing) and yet I've caught a Shiny Charmeleon, Ninetales, Gabite, and Pachirisu in Friend Safari. Most come up very quickly after entering a Safari. Other than the Hidden Abilities and 31 IVs in these Pokemon, the more common Shinies is probably a "perk" to those who add 3DS Friends.

    There is someone on the list with a Dragonair in their Safari. I have them in my friends. Just PM them with your friend code and they'll add you back.

    Okay, I'm pissed, I still have yet to see a single shiny. I've played over 120 hours. Also, I still think Shininess should be able to be bred down. Makes no sense that it isn't, to me.

    Somewhat irritatingly, you apparently can't use pokeradar in the Friend Safari.
