Shiny Ponyta and Shiny Slugma in the Friend Safari

The last time I posted, I discussed my research and the data that I am collecting to determine the Friend Safari Shiny Rate. (If you would like to read the post, click here. To be taken directly to the research thread, click here.)

Continuing my research, I was in the Friend Safari yesterday hunting for shiny Pokemon. I found another shiny Slugma, which I will evolve into a Magcargo, and a shiny Ponyta! I have been hunting for a shiny Ponyta for a while now, so I am quite happy to have found one. Getting shiny Pokemon is definitely a bonus of this research!

I've updated my Shiny Collection page and added my new shinies! I still haven't transferred my shiny Pokemon from White 2 now that Pokemon Bank is out, so I still need to do that. I'll update the page when I do, though!

Friend Safari Shiny Rate

Friend Safari Shiny Rate

I am conducting research to help determine the Friend Safari Shiny Rate. I need your help to though!

I need you guys to keep track of how many pokemon you encounter in the friend safari each time you go in, and how many shiny pokemon you encounter. I will also need you to note whether you have the shining charm or not.

With some simple math and this data, we can approximate the shiny encounter rate in the friend safari.

For more information, and to report your data, click the link here: Friend Safari Shiny Rate Project

Together, we can determine the Friend Safari Shiny Rate!

I am still thrilled! Shiny Slugma was on my capture list, so I am still quite happy despite the fact that it wasn't the Pokemon I was looking for. Now to continue the search for the elusive Shiny Ponyta!
