Shiny odds for non HM users are around 1/400. This of course will vary a lot. My last hunt, I got my first shiny at egg 126, and my second shiny was at 1023- almost 1000 eggs between them! I had another hunt that took almost 700 eggs to get my first shiny, and most recently it only took 53 eggs. It’s very variable. You’re doing everything you can, just keep trying!

I know of someone who had recently went over 1,000 hatches at max charge without an albino showing up. Luck can just be really bad sometimes :( You can increase albino chances with a Z-Crystal. Besides, that, you just have to keep hatching and eventually they'll show up as long as your radar is charged.

Yes, they did. I'm unaware of what specific bonuses they had, but I know they had at least hypermode which increased their shiny chances significantly compared to if they did not have hypermode. I'm not sure what else to tell you besides it's bad luck and you just need to keep hatching. "1/400 chance" (which as arbor mentioned is an estimate, not the exact chance) does not guarantee a shiny every 400 hatches. This is why exact odds are not provided on-site, as sometimes people can get confused why their luck doesn't align with the numbers (when their luck is bad, anyway!) I've had plenty of hunts where shinies took two or three times as long to show up as they """should have"""; and I've also had hunts where shinies showed up way "too often" to balance that bad luck out. It's the nature of the game.
