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!
Imagine being colorblind
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.
You’re totally right. I️ hadn’t considered the colorblind aspect either and now I️ feel kinda bad about 😅
bro i always forget you’re colorblind
Austin is dyslexic, I believe, so he thinks about accommodations like that, like an absolute G.
thank you so much man, you got me through sword & shield from start to finish getting the shiny charm - here we go again, hopefully another fun year
What the hell are you doing herr sc6ut?! Love your edits btw
Just got my shiny purple dolphin!!! Been looking for Finizen for nearly 30 mins using this method, was about to give up and start over but waited... And there it was! Thank you so much Austin!!
@Necrozain I picnicked on the cliff above where I wanted to hunt and just dropped down
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 feel you, I just lost a shiny murkrow, full odds before post game
I’ve played Pokémon for years and I’ve finally found my first shiny! After just 22 minutes of the picnic method!!!!
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?
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
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 😂
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.
@Doug Doggington I believe so, I’m gonna try to get a shiny drakloak doing it
So when it says I scramble out of the water or something it resets Mon spawns?
@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?
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 I GOT A SHINY MAGICARP FINALLY 🥰✨💛💛💛
This is a first, just found a shiny whilst watching the vid 😊. Very in-depth descriptions thank you!
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!
After 125 hours in game i got my first shiny, a noibat, by doing this! Great content as always!
When I got to level 30, I got to cassarya lake (i don't remember how to spell it) and there was a lvl50 shiny Gyarados, I almost cried cause it was so high lvl, but I caught it!! Named him kratos😂
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?
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.
Shiny odds stay the same until the outbreak goes away, either through time or by defeating all of them
I got two shiny swablus just getting to the 60 K-Os it was insane
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.
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?
Seems they are incredibly rare. I've done almost 30 5 star raids, and gotten 2 herba
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.
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.
Thank you so much for this video lmao got my favorite shiny in 7 minutes
Isn’t florges just fairy type? Wouldn’t that mean it’s weak towards poison and steel?
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)?
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.
If you catch a shiny, does this reset the “60-defeat” count or can you go on and still have those odds?
Just carrys on
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!
This is so cute ❤️
That's so cute, Austin better watch out for his title lol
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.
it’s not a set number for the notifications its always better to manually count. i use a counter app personally.
@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.
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
@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.
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.
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
thank you I was about to give up on my noibat and last try i got one.
This works for the first 10-15 times I set up a picnic but when I despawn them at a certain point they don’t show up again and it’s over
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 lolBtw no shiny charm or herba were used. Just got really lucky
How are you so lucky? i've been shiny hunting drakloak for a couple of hours now I think, and no luck.
This man turned playing Pokemon into a career, much respect. Love all the content
Do you use a luxury ball or a premier ball for shiny Pokémon?
what about pokemon that only spawns at night or only day and it turns to the other
Does it affect the game if I move my time back to normal time after doing this?
I want to know this too
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
What do you do if you forget how many you have knocked out. Is there a way to check
NO HERBA MYSTICA, NO SHINY CHARM. I found one in less than 5 minutes after I defeated the 60!
If you run into a different Pokémon species and battle it will that reset the counter?
So what he is saying is if I keep opening picnics after checking the pokemon in mass outbreaks AFTER defeating 60 pokemon I might encounter a shiny? (Do not have any herbas mystica's)
@Gabriel Guedes well that's good because I don't have any lol
Yes, without herba mystica your odds will be 1 to 1365
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.
I did this with a glimmet outbreak. It really does help.
This is a great shout
Ghost types are the hardest because they only appear when it's night in-game and will despawn when it becomes day.
@SnowKirbs! Froslass outbreaks are the exception
froslass spawns day and night and it's a ghost type
Im clueless about this. I dont get any herba mystica's from my 5-6 and 7 star raids. I try to do the 6 and 7 ones as much as I can. Solo or with others. But it just doesnt ever drop for me :(
Well don't waste your time on the seven stars, they can't be dropped from them. Only 5-6, and they do seem to be pretty rare. Good luck with the hunt
Idk if I'm doing it wrong, but defeating 60 mons is terminating the outbreak
I'm so unlucky! 2 hrs hunting shiny gyarados and no one come out :( HAHA
it is really thoughtful and well done you took the time to include others and their vision differences in your videos. You’re a gem and a benefit to the whole community.
I just turned back the clock on the same day to give me more time on the same outbreak. However, it reset the outbreaks. I am wondering how this is possible. I changed it back to 00:04, didn't change the date. Maybe you can go back so close to midnight? Does anyone know what happened here?
I got a shiny just as you said; but… if I keep doing and quitting the picnic… it would be “easy” to get another shiny… right?
I mass outbreak farming a Corvisquire and randomly encountered a shiny MurkrowMy second random, full odds Shiny Murkrow in a 24 hour periodWrong shiny corvid, but ok
So all I have to do is keeping going to and from until a shiny one spawns?? I want to make sure I’m understanding that.Edit:Nvm it worked 💀💀 I left and came back a few times and boom shiny Tatsugiri
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
Thank you so much for this video, Austin!! It helped me get my Shiny Sneasel! Now I have my favourite ice type and she’s so pretty - I caught her in a matching Heal Ball, too!
I’m not color blind. But mad respect for you being considerate of those that are! This is why I subscribe. I wanna support loving people like you. Making the world a better place for everyone.
You're so good at pumping out videos. I appreciate all the work that you do to get the info out to us and your delivery is why I watch them. Amazing work, as always.
can you do this *without* eating for it in theory?
@AustinJohnPlays that prompt that says the outbreak seems to be disappearing only pops up after 60 knock outs so you don't gotta count.
I’m moving so slowly through the story, but I’ve found two shinies just walking around without even trying?? I’m so happy 🥰 and so glad they made it more attainable for people with less dull grinding. I could never get shinies in the past, so this is really nice!!
got a third one like right after posting this 😎
Thanks so much for the accessibility section Austin! It’s super helpful for people to address and help color blindness when most people forget about it!
you’ve done it again austin! i can’t even tell you how helpful you’ve been in all of my pokémon journeys!
LOVE that you helped make shiny hunting more accessible❤️ seriously that’s amazing thank you for doing that
why do my mass outbreaks not spawn many pokemon and i know its a mass outbreak because when i zoom out to remove the nearby mons the pokemon (in this case maril) has the pulsating red skull next to it but and i have encounter power 3 but theres so few of them
Thank you for your thoroughness and the having the completest disease lol the work you put in for these charts and research is unmatched. I have long since retired from video games but I still tune into for entertainment but most importantly its the respect you have for your craft and audience. Thank you for all the work you do you are a pillar of the community
The amount of quality videos you pump out is insane. Been getting most of my shinies from outbreaks and this video will definitely help with that, thx for the hard work.
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! 👍
I’ve been doing this for 3 hours and so far I’ve not seen one shiny.
Maybe it doesn't work anymore in this new patch
Thanks man, just did my first shiny hunt with this method. Nabbed myself a shiny rotom in about 45 minutes 😁
Hey Austin, you’ve been really helpful with my shiny hunting in my violet save file so I just wanted to say thanks. Keep working hard (Edit: That’s a lot of likes)
Dude got insider's that tell him about all the methods and then just makes a video...hes basically a huge sponsor for pokemon...its not like he just randomly figures out how to perfect each method in each game
@Jacko Its not a save apple, what do you expect me to say
@Jacko How was that unnecessary? not every sentence has to be simplified. The only unnecessary thing here is you making that comment. Stop criticizing others on little things and do something better with your life. Lmao.
@Jacko bros just on the internet looking for anyway possible to hate LMFAOOOO get a grip dude
@Jacko And you could have used the proper term 'could have' instead of 'could of'
Great video as always Austin!!!Been watching since I discovered your earlier BotW tutorials and have loved how concise and to the point every video is while still being enjoyable to watch and being a good overall piece of content and information!!Cant wait for the next one and good luck everyone on your shinies!!
I find it interesting that the outbreak of Florges are all the same flower form and not random flower forms. That's going to make it much harder to hunt a Shiny white flower Florges.
I did everything and had the level 3 sparkling shiny to try and get Mankey. No luck, it’s actually really discouraging that everyone is getting them and I have literally never seen a shiny. Your videos and effort are top notch though. Thanks for what you do!
I caught a shiny today and I wanna name it after you since you’ve been such a help for shiny hunting and other Pokémon game situations for me thank you so much!
Part off the hype for a new Pokémon game is receiving 200 videos from Austin! What a man ❤
What happens if the pokemon stops spawning
Anybody want to friend up to evolve finizen
He doesn’t know who you are lil bro
Does EV training work on level 100 Pokémon??
The amount of effort, consideration and advice given here to help players with vision disabilities is just top notch! Very well done 👍
what happens if i accedentally encounter one of the pokémon i am hunting: do i have to kill it to keep the streak or can i just run
No worries it's not a streak it's just accumulative
I wasn’t even entirely planning on doing much shiny hunting until I got my charm, and even then I had a mentality of “eventually one will be shiny” . Then today I was getting future forms and violet exclusives to eventually transfer for my scarlet dex and found a shiny Sneasel and Jumpluff and it flipped a switch
The amount of effort, consideration and advice given here to help players with vision disabilities is just top notch! Very well done
Hey Austin, I've been noticing while resetting for outbreaks, that I tend to get a lot of repeats of certain species, while there are others that don't show up at all. I was just wondering if you had any ideas as to why this happens, thanks
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
LOVE that you helped make shiny hunting more accessible seriously thats amazing thank you for doing that
We all appreciate your grind and hard work! Huge help to the community bless you man
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
Just got my shiny Larvista
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.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!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
Yeah but decrease in shiny odds tho
Yea but back in Arceus the odds were so much better, having more doesn't mean better
@FancyCheese05 I got a shiny tinkatuff from an outbreak but I don't know about tinkatink
They've gone from small club meetings to actual mass outbreaks
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
