What's the longest successful shiny hunt you've ever had, /vp/?
Either total number of resets or the total amount of time between starting and finishing.
Counting today, I managed to get 6 shinies in 10 days or so, my luckiest moment ever.
But if you want a specific record, I'd have to go with my shiny regice: literally just half an hour of SR the day after catching shiny registeel.
Like, almost thirty two boxes. Shortly after they announced Mega Lopunny, I painstaking bred a 6IV HA female Buneary and tossed it into the daycare with my 6IV Ditto and hopped on the bike. Thirty boxes later, I got one. No Hidden Ability, and a 10-12 in Attack. I rage quit and tried again about four days later. I was just onto my second box of Eggs when I finally got it. Hidden Ability with all IVs except for Special Attack. I didn't even care that he was male.
>mfw got a shiny furfrou in 6 eggs
>wasn't even intentionally trying to get one
I don't know how long it took time wise, but with musada and shiny charm it still took me roughly 4000 eggs to get a shiny sableye. Although after that I got a shiny zubat on the 4th egg so I guess considering the probability of getting a shiny with both MM and charm that made up for the amount it took for sableye. All my others have generally been around the usual 600-1000 eggs.

and that was that
I have legitimate shinies, but I only hunted for Electrike. Unless trolling reddit and 4chan for eggs matching my SV counts as hunting
Over 60 boxes for a perfect modest Charmander.
>tfw forgot to chainbreed Ancient Power
I had to convince myself for the following weeks Ancient Power is shit and I would not have any need for it despite how coming ZardY and Talonflame were in the meta.
