I feel it will be like "catch 3 water type pokemon" or something like that.

That would be cute, there are quite a lot of Barboach in my town so at least I could complete that.

and catching feebas itself will effect your research. 

 

At least we got this quest during the squirtle CD. "Catch 3 Squritle" or sometthing like this.

Watch the Feebas tasks being something like "Battle in 10 raids" :dies:

It's probably something easier because it's a pain in the ass to walk with it 20km and needing 100 candies to evolve it for them to do something hard to get it too lol.

Pretty sure a poke's shiny odds is dependent on the pokemon itself, it coming from a raid or found in the wild makes no difference. so like a snorunt encountered in the wild has just as equal chance of being shiny as one in a raid, where you encounter doesn't make a difference.

You're getting confused because a lot of the raid exclusive poke's tend to have higher shiny rates. Like Absol/Mawile/shinx have higher chance of being shiny simply because they are not found in the wild. Same with the legendary birds, they aren't found in the wild, only raids/research breakthrough therefore they have much higher rate like 1/20 or something (made up # idk the exact). hope that made sense :gaycat4:

It makes perfect sense, thanks! :)

Nnnnn this is not proven true re: non-legendaries. It's luck. I have friends who have done HUNDREDS of Absol and Mawile raids with no shiny. That's just how RNG works.

 

The exception to the shiny odds SEEMS to be with legendaries, when they have the special days where you can get a shiny. I think 1/20 actually is the rate most people guess based on data sent to TSR. But for non-legendary, regardless of whether they're in the wild or not, you'll potentially have to really grind for the shine. Or be like me and get shiny Absol on your second try :gaycat4: (No Mawile yet, though I've only done ~85 raids.)

There are indeed non-legendaries with higher shiny rates tho, like absol/mawile/shinx that are raid exclusive (based off data from TSR), and it's going to be luck no matter which poke you go after lol.

Check them out. They have a different pokedex screen and their stardust cost is MUCH MUCH lower :clap3:

Lucky Pokémon have increased IV chances. Like the floor is a lot higher for them than normal. Like, you’ll never get a 10-10-10 or less. I think the lowest it can be is 13-13-13 but I could be wrong. In addition to the minimum stat boost, the Stardust cost to power them up is halved. So instead of paying 8,000 Stardust per feeding at higher levels, you’d spend 4,000. Some Pokémon, legends mainly, cost 10,000 when you get up there so it can pay off big time.

Praying for a decent Totodile, the ones I already have suck (knowing my luck, I'm not getting my hopes up for catching a shiny)

I caught 3 shiny Totodiles, evolved 2 of them, and i caught a 100IVs one :heart2: 

 

the egg hatch distance halving was the greatest part though. Got a lot of stardust because of it :alexz:

I got one shiny Totodile :party:, fully evolved it and also another non-shiny 94IV one.

 

But it seemed like Croagunks were boosted too, I found tons of them, lol.

Got a 96% non-shiny which was already virtually max CP. I didn’t even know it was possible to get pokemon that good. 

 

Got like 5 shinies in total. Hatched a lot of eggs but wasn’t as successful as I’d hoped. Got a chingling but still need a mantyke. No Riolu either. Was really annoyed actually as I kept getting 5KM eggs for the whole event. :biblio:

Me too. I didn't hatch a lot of eggs because I had only three incubators but everytime I had a chance to get a new egg, it was always 5km.

 

Congrats on getting a Chingling though!

I caught three shiny Totodile and hatched a Munchlax, Mantyke, and Riolu today! I think they increased the hatch odds for the babies.
