Pokemon Go player shows off insane double shiny luck in the same day
A Pokemon Go player has taken to Reddit to show off the two identical shiny Riolu they found in both Go and Scarlet & Violet on the same day.
When it comes to playing Pokemon games, one of the most popular things to do is hunt for rare shiny variations.
The average shiny rate for Pokemon Go is 1/500, while the odds in mainline games like Pokemon Scarlet & Violet begin at 1/4096.
So when a Redditor named homiesarehot found two shiny Riolu on the same day, they were shocked.

Users were quick to congratulate the Shiny Hunting pro in the replies of their posts.

Another said: “Nice Shiny Congratulations! Also a fun thing I kind of noticed is that the S/V one is Level 53 and the GO one is CP 533.”
It is possible to increase the odds of catching a shiny in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, but it doesn’t negate how lucky the Redditor actually is.
