Hey Shiro!

Could you change the Shiny Rate of the starters to 1/5, like the roamers?

Because nowadays, starter are easy to get by some way like breeding them, and this don't worth buying seekers. This would give a big interest in buying them to increase the shiny rate!

Thank you for reading!

Starters aren't limited to only one month though, so that seems kind of high to me, to also have them at 1/5. I don't know, I love shiny Pokemon and shiny starters, and especially with the retypes in parcels, but at the same time I wouldn't want it to be too easy to get them, if that makes sense? Maybe 1/50 or 1/100?

Hm after reflexion I think 1/100 would be a cool shiny rate yes! It's like a MissingNo or a GBP Green'd!

Well after my topic i'm more opened to a nice shiny rate
(and SO MUCH SHINY TOTODILES)

but why not putting a time for this ? Like 1/2 days a month ? Or 1/2 hour every day with the new automatic server changes ?
Or a higher Shiny rate (1/5 => 1/50 etc don't care this)

I'm not sure I like 1/100. Starters have a 1 in 500 chance of appearing - puts the shiny chance at 1 in 50,000, right?

At 1/8192, a Pokémon with a 10% chance of appearing has a shiny chance of 1 in 81,920. It doesn't seem right for starters to have a better chance at being shiny than ordinary Pokémon (considering they're permanent additions to the map if you have the seekers).

Yep, it'd be a Missingno OR a Green (with GBP) Pokemon.
But the deal is (tell me if i'm wrong) with the Legendary + Events with a more common rate, they thought (and yes i've approved this XD) something could be done for starters too, and have the possibility to hunt everything and keep a difficulty for the starters because of the fact that seekers are permanent, beacause with the 1/8192*1/500 it's more than 1/4M so really hard to find wild one like this

I get it, I just don't like the 1 in 100 proposed rate.
