Pokemon Go Shiny Rates Increased and the Most Common Shiny Pokemon Analysis
There have been many reports of increased Shiny encounters since the Bug Out event came to an end.
Right at this moment, it is believed that the odds to get a Shiny are 1 in 450, which means it is 0.2%. This is very likely to be an accurate estimate because the data behind this is quite substantial.
After close 500+ observations, the following results were found:
- Account 1: 112 checks, 2 shinies
- Account 2: 127 checks, 2 shinies
- Account 3: 178 checks, 4 shinies
- Account 4: 56 checks, 1 shiny
- Account 5: 85 checks, 0 shiny
Bear in mind that to get these results, five different accounts were used.
As you can see from the total count above, a total of 9 shiny Pokemon were found. This is more than what was originally expected.
There is another analysis which shows what’s the most common Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Go and that’s Eevee. Again, after close observations, we are giving you a list of the (five) most common Shiny Pokemon that are spawning right now:

During the Bug Out Event, I seen more pinecones, more slithers than I have ever encountered in years of playing. Not once did I see a shiny.
Not once did I hear of any of my friends finding one.
No, the Bug Out Event was a horrible experience for several of my friends and myself.
Thats a very small sample size to provide accurate assumptions.
