I caught two Shiny Swinub earlier today. It feels like it's been awhile since I had that kind of luck for a Community Day, so that was neat. Because I had a ton of Swinub candy, I have two Shiny Mamoswine, along with two other regular Mamoswine.

Caught 8 shiny Swinub yesterday, all rubbish IVs, but the true crown jewel was no doubt that 96% shiny Lugia I got from the weekly Field Research Breakthrough box. Now to score a similar Ho-oh.

Swinub day went great, and I nabbed 14 shinies! But outside of that, I've had some luck recently with shinies as well! I've grabbed
  • Snubbull
  • Luvdisc
  • 2x Psyduck
  • Kyogre
  • 2x Feebas
and I've traded for a Delibird, a Poochyena, and a Caterpie! So I feel pretty good about my luck.

I was working on my third Spinda, looking for Slowpokes. I spotted a Swablue and I didn't want to catch it because it may ruin my streak. "Well, okay, I'll catch it if it's a shiny," I thought to myself. It was a shiny. And I didn't broke my streak, great curve ball number 5 in a row was scored. Third shiny Swablue is in and so is Valentine Spinda number 3.

None currently, I'm hoping with the Battle Event going on that there will be some lucky spawns, but I haven't had any luck. I'm also going upstate this weekend, so maybe then?
