The most recent one I've gotten though has been the Jolteon that I evolved from the Eevee I got from special research.

A couple of weeks ago, I caught a Shiny Pikachu wearing Ash's Hat. There were some other Pokemon around it and I was checking them first to see if they were Shiny. It turns out that it was Pikachu the whole time. That's technically the second Shiny Pikachu I've found, although the first one was a regular Shiny Pikachu. Then the very next day I hatched a Shiny Sneasel. That really shocked me. I just wish that Sinnoh Stones were more widely available so that I could evolve it. I couldn't even get a regular Gallade during the previous Community Day event.

I didn't find a Shiny Bonsly during the Friends Gift event, but I hatched a Shiny Azuril last weekend. That was another big shock. I was pretty happy with it because I had wanted to find a Shiny Azuril for a long time. The luck I've been having with Shiny Pokemon does give me hope that I'll find more of them someday, even if it takes a long time. I wish that the Shiny Legendary Beasts were available when they were field breakthrough rewards, if only because that's the only way I can capture Legendary Pokemon in the game.

Just got two shiny Onix within 5 hours of each other. One was in Selangor, and one was in Kuala Lumpur, so it felt like it travelled so far alongside me, hehe.

Of course, I named them Moss & Matcha, appropriately so.

I just caught a shiny Swablu while taking my morning break from work/walk to Dunkin! Really happy to have caught it now because with this capture I'm at 398 candy so I can almost immediately evolve it too.

I hatched my third shiny Togepi today. No idea why this game wants me to have shiny Togepi so badly lol. Waiting on a Sinnoh Stone (what else is new) so I can evolve it into Togekiss.

I hatched a shiny Shinx the other day. Which is cool I guess, but not what I wanted from the 10k egg during this event...I’d rather have hatched an Unown and gotten one of the event-specific Shinies through other means. Oh well. I evolved it into Luxio, anyways

Caught a shiny Bronzor last night. I almost had a heart attack because I had 3 Pokeballs left and was pretty certain I'd end up being forced to let it run away. Fortunately, it seems the RNG was on my side.

I also have an Aron I caught about a year ago too. I'm considering evolving it when I get the chance since I really like Aggron.
