So, a while ago I was walking through the beach in Pokemon Sun & Moon, trying to ecounter a Sandygast to Shiny chain for it.
And, I walked into a Staryu, randomly. Happens often, right? Just that the Staryu was SHINY
A random Shiny ecounter makes it a 1/8192 chance of ecountering one.
And more, as if this alone wasn't crazy enough, that Staryu has one of two best Natures - Timid! Makes it another 1:25 odds!
Putting those two together makes the odds quite insane, this is incredible.
My reaction? This was just so hilariously impossible I bursted out laughing I just couldn't help it!
I'm not a huge fan of Staryu/Starmie, but dear gods, I'm gonna keep it, pet it and keep it safe as my lucky charm~
This really is silly. Such a tiny thing and makes me feel like I won a lottery! Such small things can really make a person happy.
That is a second Pokemon I ecountered Shiny purely by a random ecounter. First was a Xatu on a Mirage Island but since Shiny odds are quite high on those Islands AND I had a Shiny Charm, it doesn't even come close to this!
