    Austin is an absolute legend for helping us colorblind folks. Most people wouldn't even consider making an accessibility section for tutorials like this. Thanks man!

      For real when I heard that I was like this dude is a damn Legend that's one of the problems I struggle with is my color blindness if a Pokemon isn't completely a different color I have so much trouble distinguishing whether it's shiny or not.

      @Necrozain I picnicked on the cliff above where I wanted to hunt and just dropped down

    • Necrozain

      but how did you picnic in the water? or did you just swim around

    As per usual, great advice explained and understood easily. Just hunted a shiny Glimmet with this method. You are a huge help to our community, mate. Keep doing what you're doing, you are greatly appreciated! Happy hunting!

    I watched this right after losing 2 shiny Forretress in a row to explosions. Didn't think about saving before encountering the shiny. I'll never lose another one again!!

    I’ve played Pokémon for years and I’ve finally found my first shiny! After just 22 minutes of the picnic method!!!!

  • Galactic Gardevoir
    Galactic Gardevoir Month ago +9

    My first two shinys were both complete luck, I had only finished the first two gyms and was on my way to do the first Titan and stumbled across a shiny shinx in a mass outbreak... as in like I walked past it and was like "oh look a shiny!" My second one was on my way to the third gym after doing the first two titans and the first team star raid and I went down to the beach to do a terra raid right before going into town and I saw a shiny Mareanie just hanging about. Pure dumb luck I guess lol. I want to get a shiny salazzle eventually, which will be a time

    Have you ever considered how the ability No Guard could affect in regards to the spawn rate of the wild pokemon?

    • Aubroski
      Aubroski Month ago +1

      I believe only a certain number of Pokemon can appear on the screen at a time (15 I think?) And they spawn rather quickly when you move far enough to despawn the others. So no guard shouldn't make much of a difference

  • biggentastee
    biggentastee Month ago +16

    Did this on a Psyduck outbreak, thanks to my hard save i had a Psyduck and an Azuril spawn at the same exact time. Had to lure them close because if i engaged one or the other the other would wander and despawn 😂

  • Patrick Tiangco
    Patrick Tiangco Month ago +49

    This worked for me even on water! You just have to open picnic while in the water and it automatically brings you to the last land area you've been in, and no need to do a proper picnic as this automatically generate new pokemons.

      @Mike Scott I did some normal battle too, but like in 65 battles, prolly around 3 to 7 times only.

      Do you have to use the lets go feature to defeat the 60 or can you normal battle too?

  • lethe.archive
    lethe.archive Month ago +12

    i like using the picnic method cause it lets me count how long it took but it has occurred to me that i could just walk away to despawn them. glad to hear that’s correct.
    also for people who have trouble with counting without getting distracted and forgetting your number (me) i use a free counter app

    Thank you so much for this tutorial! Decided on a whim I wanted a shiny magneton because of how cool their materials are and I saw an outbreak nearby. Took less than ten minutes and ONE ROUND of refreshing to get one! And it was so worth it- I love the colours with the materials!! Thank you again, Austin!

    A question: When you move away and you don't see the icon of the mass outbreak Pokemon does that mean you are not in his area of the mass outbreak?

  • ZGlove
    ZGlove Month ago +2

    Do the shiny odds reset after catching the shiny?
    If not, that would make it a bit easier to hunt for mons with multiple forms, such as Tatsugiri.

    • gatoman101
      gatoman101 Month ago +1

      Shiny odds stay the same until the outbreak goes away, either through time or by defeating all of them

  • UnclePhilLawl
    UnclePhilLawl Month ago +2

    I just wish in mass outbreaks, (or catching Pokémon in general) you could just throw a ball at them like in PLA it’s just tedious to have to keep going into encounter after encounter. That’s ,y only real complaint about this game.

  • Kai
    Kai Month ago +5

    I was wondering if anyone else was having trouble getting herba mystica from 5 and 6 star raids. On my violet copy i’ve gotten a lot of herba mystica as i’ve done many raids but i’ve been playing through my scarlet copy and i’ve completed the game and post game and gotten no herba mystica at all. I’ve done many raids on my scarlet copy as well and I was wondering if this is a bug or if i’m just extremely unlucky. Does anyone have any solutions?

    • McBewar

      Seems they are incredibly rare. I've done almost 30 5 star raids, and gotten 2 herba

  • Daffy mendoza
    Daffy mendoza Month ago

    I went to a small pond and got two shinys really quick, 1 dratini and 1 golduck in less than 30 minutes and is a pond small one full of golducks and dratinis and occasionally drakloak also have one shiny.

  • TamagoSoup
    TamagoSoup Month ago

    I randomly found a shiny golduck in the giant lake area, so I saved in front of it (autosaves off) and I tried to battle it and ended up killing it. Reloaded my game and it just disappeared... So Im just going to assume that the giant lake area bugged my shiny spawn or something off happened there. So a shiny fail on my part, but ultimately not a big loss seeing as I dont like golduck really, but still a shame.

  • Sarah S.
    Sarah S. Month ago +2

    If you have a party of 2-4 people, does everyone need to follow these steps (do shiny rates stack?), or are the odds only based on the host player (if a host has a shiny charm will guest players see more shiny pkmn)?

    • Iroam
      Iroam Month ago

      Pokemon don't exist contantly on the map, rather, they start appearing within your proximity depending on the area/biome you are in- this is excluding static spawns of course. With this in mind, odds when in a group are based on the person who is spawning those pokemon.

  • Sjacko Stegenga
    Sjacko Stegenga Month ago +3

    If you catch a shiny, does this reset the “60-defeat” count or can you go on and still have those odds?

  • Jay Smith
    Jay Smith Month ago

    So if I move away/picnic to despawn them, the mons that spawn will be different, and not the exact same ones I just saw, right? So I don't actually need to spend time killing them all?

    Austin, I just wanted to let you know your a positive role model in our home. This is my sons first Pokémon game (after a few years of TCG collecting and playing) and we watch your videos together. We’ve had multiple conversations about how following your passions WITH a lot of hard work and thoughtfulness can lead to success. My 8 year old considers you a professional Pokémon trainer and is coming for your job 😂 Thanks for all you do!

  • PolarBro Omega
    PolarBro Omega 2 months ago +323

    A note that helps a great deal, at least for me, on counting how many you've killed. Your "The outbreak has less pokemon" or w/e message is your 50th, so you can just not count until you see that message, then count the next 10. It's infinitely easier to pay attention for the message than keep track of 60 individual kills.

    • lethe.archive
      lethe.archive Month ago +2

      it’s not a set number for the notifications its always better to manually count. i use a counter app personally.

    • Andrew Brooks
      Andrew Brooks 2 months ago

      @Niedasyeah I just found that out too. I must of been too early in the game to only get 1 material each KO but now I am receiving more than 1 per KO. Also no one dies in Pokemon , its a KO.

    • Hazzmatt Plays
      Hazzmatt Plays 2 months ago +1

      Nah this isn’t true for me when I was shiny hunting finizen I got the message after killing only about 15-20 of them

    • Andrew Brooks
      Andrew Brooks 2 months ago

      @Niedas For me, its 2 materials for the very first encounter then 1 material for every "Lets Go" KO after the first. I do the Lets Go KO because its faster. But I never gotten more than 1 material after the first encounter.

    I found that you can just save at 11:59pm and when you dont like the outbreak just reset the game the outbreaks will change.

    • gvs93fdr
      gvs93fdr 7 days ago

      But if you save at 11:59 then time passes on switch, would it mess with the in game clock? I'm really having a hard time understanding the clock parts of the method.

  • ztks
    ztks Month ago

    Doing this seems broken. Twice now I've searched for 1-3 HOURS for a bisharp and forretress in an outbreak, killed 60, constantly picnic resetting, with a shiny charm and with a sandwich and never got one. It's like the game glitches out and goes back to 1:4,096 somehow

  • Alejandro Torres-Martinez

    thank you I was about to give up on my noibat and last try i got one.

  • andrew mac

    So while I was knocking out like 40-50 drakloaks using this method to shiny hunt, I found it before I even began to actual hunt lol

    WOW! So, I did this method once with a noivern (my favorite Pokémon) outbreak. The 30 minutes ran out; so I reset to restart my picnic timer. AND FREAKING WALA THERE WAS A SHINY RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!! No picnic lol

  • Kareena Harrison
    Kareena Harrison 2 months ago +5

  • Richard Shim
    Richard Shim 2 months ago +20

    A note regarding caves and valleys: Caves and valley areas do decrease the spawn zone but they can also spawn Pokémon inside of walls and ceilings (if you’re in a cave). Though this is something Nintendo or Gamrefreak is probably going to patch up in future updates, for the time being you should scan the walls for any hidden Pokémon and/or hidden shinies which may be inside of the walls and ceilings. You can do this by holding down ZL and simply looking at the wall and moving around so that you can see the entire length of the wall or ceiling; most of the time you can lock onto Pokémon through walls.

    It’s cool that you considered the color blind. Gaming can be way harder for them than anyone can think. I used to play eso and we had a tank that struggled with blues and we were doing something where the bosses ability would turn the boss transparent blue and to him. The dude literally went invisible and he sadly dropped the progression mostly because of this issue. It was a sad moment. So yeah it’s awesome you consider that

  • UnderLeveled
    UnderLeveled 2 months ago +1

    Awesome video man! Always super detailed! We wanted to add that we were able to calculate the probability of a shiny Pokémon spawning with every picnic or route reset. Using 10 Pokemon spawning with every reset as a baseline.
    Clearing 60+ ONLY: 0.73% that one of the 10 that spawn will be shiny with every reset.
    Clearing 60+ with Sandwich buff: 1.455%
    Clearing 60+ with Sandwich and Shiny Charm: 1.936%
    We have the formula in our video, if anyone wants to adjust the number of Pokémon per spawn.
    Keep up the awesome work! 👍

    Kudos to Austin and to you all for your helpful comments! Not a single second is full of hyperactive annoying fluff! He's to the point, and you all truly have made this game so much fun to play

    Worked like a charm, even though I don’t have the shiny charm yet, got my shiny fortress in only 10 minutes, had to reset a few times to catch it though, but good thing I saved

    I was shiny hunting for a Clawitzer in a mass outbreak. I defeated my 60 mons, even did a few extra just to be safe. Got a water sparkling power lv 3 sandwhich. I was doing everything right, and my sparkling timer was getting lower and lower. With just one minute remaining I was about to give up, when I saw a pink Eiscue 😂 It's an ice type... I got a shiny I wasn't looking for with a type that was not the sparkling sandwhich I prepared. This game is funny sometimes... At least I got a shiny...

    Wow, this looks actually easier than arceus shiny hunting! Thank you for providing the information, as always, Austin!

    Depending on the terrain (and how difficult it is to tell the shiny apart), it can actually be better to do the ride away and back method as it can generate new pokemon faster and you can ride up next to them and get a closer look. You can ride in a circle around the mass outbreak causing the non-outbreak pokemon to despawn, freeing those spawn slots for the outbreak mons.
    Also if you are shiny hunting on the cheap, it can be helpful to make a cheap encounter power sandwich to reduce the spawn rate of surrounding pokemon.

    I remember when Sw/Sh came out I just HAD to get a shiny G. Yamask. That took me probably 20+ hours (at least) before finally getting lucky, and that was before any actually good hunting methods were out.
    This time, only with the boost of 60 K/Os from a mass outbreak, I got a shiny P. Wooper in at most 20 MINUTES!!!
    Obviously a lot of that is luck, but I just had to say thank you so much for always bringing us the best guides on Clip-Share. You're the best!

    This looks dope. Me and my fiancé are still just taking our time to savor the story, but we did get a glimmet outbreak and found a shiny of those just going around and looking regularly! (I’m a poison user so this was great) So this new strat will surely help even more.

    Thank you so much i was having trouble shiny hunting. I love watching your pokémon videos when a new game comes out!

    Nice 1 for this. Really helpful & easy to follow/understand.
    Can you elaborate on the 60 mons? Why does defeating 60 raise your odds so much? I thought I understood, but if it was to do with the amount, you would just defeat 500 😅

    I love the amount of detail that went into this video, but I do have an advice request.
    What would be the best way to go about dealing with the outbreaks of Pokémon who not only fly, but seem to have a nasty habit of flying out of range?
    The Rufflet do this occasionally, but Noivern has been rather notorious for flying about 3 stories above my head. Lol 😅

      Noivern doesn't fly during the day, just during the night.

    Hey Austin, any chance you could make an optimized Auction House guide? Specifically for a spreadsheet with item costs for reference and for getting items you want at the best price. Thank you! Love your videos!

    I love how mass outbreaks are now so much bigger. We use to have up I think 15 in Pokemon Legends Arceus. Now, I think it's up to like 80

      Yea but back in Arceus the odds were so much better, having more doesn't mean better

    Thank you so much for the guides you post!! I’m only about halfway through the game, but I was just able to get a shiny Dreepy through a mass outbreak in about 20 minutes. So stoked!!

    So I really want a shiny Scyther but I have beat the game and have herba mystica but I don't have the shiny charm. Would it still be worth it to hunt or should I get the shiny charm first? I only have like 200 registered.

      I've caught 6 so far with no sandwich or charm. You should try!

    So I think this was the big issue with my hunt for misdreavus yesterday. The spawn points for the outbreak where awful right around and over some small ponds. It was hard to move around to see them, to get them to spawn in nicely, and hard to get a good look at them without moving so far that part would respawn.

    Thank you so much, i was testing this out on a random dunsparce horde, no shiny charm or herba mystica, and i found a shiny in a good 20 minutes
