My coworker has like great luck with catching shinies. He doesn't care about them, so when we he gets one, I just send him a pokemon he needs candy for and I get the shiny. I got my shiny (and lucky) Groudon thanks to him. I got a shiny Gengar from him a few weeks ago.

I caught a shiny Trapinch this morning.. I caught several of them during Community Day, but the one I caught today was at least 2 stars versus the rubbish I captured on community day.

I do, yes! My most recent shiny is Zapdos. Others include Minun, Lopunny (originally a Buneary), Raticate (originally a Rattata), Kirlia (originally a Ralts), Lombre (originally a Lotad), Roselia, and Stoutland (originally a Lillipup).

I just caught nine Shiny Chimchar during Community Day. I haven't had that much good luck during Community Day since the Mudkip event. I caught a lot of Chimchar, so I had more than enough candies to evolve two regular Chimchar and two Shiny Chimchar.

3 shiny Chimchar, 1 shiny Snubbull. Not bad. Really wish one of the many Makuhita or Caterpie I check would turn out shiny, though!

For some reason, it seems like the starter Pokemon spawn more shinies on Community Day than others.

I caught plenty of shiny Chimchar today, and I hatched a shiny Torchic.

Since I last posted here:
  • I got two shiny Trapinch during its community day (sadly both were low level but I evolved one into Vibrava)
  • The only shiny I got during the Halloween event was a second shiny Murkrow which I evolved into Honchkrow.
  • A couple of weeks a go I got a shiny Kanto geodude on one day, followed by a shiny Magnemite the next day.
  • Yesterday I caught five shiny Chimchar (evolved one into monferno and another into Infernape), as well as a shiny Rattata after community day ended (which was actually my first shiny rat XD)

I hatched a Shiny Smoochum this morning. That was a pretty neat surprise, especially when it has been awhile since I've hatched a Shiny Pokemon. It's also a three star Pokemon, so that's pretty cool.
