Actual Shiny Percent Chance

Forum Index > Core > Help >

So I know that chaining eggs mutiplies the chance of hatching a shiny Pokemon. But what is the *original* percent chance for an egg to be shiny? It's useless to know I have a 105% bonus multiplier when I don't know what I'm getting 105% of. Not angry, just confused. It isn't in the Shiny or Shiny Hunting wiki pages :(

I don't think anyone knows the actual 'accurate percentage'?

That's on purpose apparently so if I say like "1/4000" people won't say "But I didn't get a shiny at 4000"
My first language is french! So sorry in advance for misunderstanding xD Click on the fish Draw inspired by Sans' Hotdog Stand in Undertale
yep, they're purposefully not disclosed. i asked a similar thing about the albino base rates because i was curious, and i was told that the base chances were kept hidden on purpose. you know how in the actual pokemon games its a 1/4096 chance of getting a shiny? and how when some people do methods in pokemon x or y of radar chaining, they say it's a 1/200 chance at max odds? pokefarm decided not to disclose something like that, something like an actual fraction, otherwise people would be complaining to the mods like "i didn't get a shiny in 200 eggs" or something similar.

If a large enough volume of this Berry is boiled down, its bitterness fades away. It makes a good jam.

I hate to say it but this was a real thing that happened far too often. That's why we stopped announcing numbers like we used to.
