I just went over odds going for a shiny Carkol. This is probably the second slowest hunt I've done with soft resetting for Cobalion being my slowest. The two instances I've gone over odds before, the hunts didn't shine until nearly double odds at least. This is my first "full odds" hunt (I think I've battled a Carkol before) in a 1/4096 game, so hopefully the encounter number isn't too high relative to what I've been doing in Black's 1/8192 odds.

Shiny Wooloo Log:

 

11/2- Day One of trying to find a shiny Wooloo- Uneventful.  

 

11/3- I should've at least met a Shiny Wooloo from the tips from YouTube and Serebii. So far, nothing has happened. What's going on here?  

 

11/4- I think RNGesus hates me. Though, my Pokemon are near level 30 by now.  

 

11/5- If I don't find one by the end of tomorrow, I'll just ask.

I would say it’s luck, just like it usually is. Even at best of times the shiny odds are, like, 1 in ~600, right?  1 in several hundred is still a pretty large margin.

 

Just the one shiny for me. :) My red eyed Glalie is pretty nifty.

Got the shiny Carkol Monday night after 4,544 OEs. I wasn't expecting to get the shiny for several thousand more encounters considering how my luck has been in Pokemon Black going over odds, so I was caught off guard when this one appeared. I didn't even see the sparkles until I went to the clip I captured. My next hunt isn't certain yet, but I'm considering either Galarian Farfetch'd or Stunfisk for my next target. Hopefully whichever I pick will be a bit of a quicker paced hunt.

If anyone has a shiny Wooloo, please PM me or whatever. Still, I haven’t defeated the first gym, and at this point, most of my Pokémon have been Wooloo grinding by accident.
