How to Increase Shiny Pokemon chances
There are a couple ways to improve your chances of encountering a Shiny Pokemon. The chances of seeing a Shiny Pokemon increase depending on how many of a particular Pokemon you defeat in battle. The chances of seeing a Shiny Pokemon dramatically increase depending on how many of the same Pokemon you battle in a row. For example, if you are hunting for a Shiny Yamper, your chances will increase for the global number of Yamper Pokemon you have encountered and defeated, as well as the number of Yamper Pokemon you have battled in a row. If you battle any other type of Pokemon, the counter will reset. The best way to hunt for Shiny Pokemon is in the wild, where you will see the Pokemon wandering around. You can then try to fight the same type as often as possible. Fighting the same Pokemon in a row requires you to actually defeat the Pokemon and not run away.
