A Pokemon Sword & Shield streamer had the most incredible luck while shiny hunting as he was able to finally get his prize – and then another one right after.

Once players earn all of the gym badges and see everything a Pokemon game has to offer, many of them turn their sights towards filling out the Pokedex.

While this Dex is smaller than some of the games in the past due to the removal of the National Pokedex, there are still plenty of Pokemon out there players will have to catch, and that doesn’t even include the shiny ones.

Shiny Pokemon are among the rarest in the game, and all they are is a minor cosmetic change. Streamers have already dedicated hundreds of hours to shiny hunting, and even offered massive rewards to their communities if they weren’t able to catch one.

Twitch streamer TheNo1Alex spent 80 hours and after 4051 attempts through encounters and egg hatches, he was finally able to secure his prize of a shiny Impadimp.

While that itself was an amazing accomplishment, there was no way he could have seen what happened next. Just as he finally began to calm down after getting his first Impadimp, he took another step where another egg began to hatch.

Alex was completely blown away when he saw yet another shiny Impadimp came out of the egg, making it two in a row in just a matter of seconds. The odds of this happening are slim to none, so it’s absolutely incredible he was able to pull this off.

It’s hard to imagine he’ll have any luck left if he continues this hunt, so it’s possible we’ll be looking at another 40-hour adventure as he continues to look.

Luckily, catching a shiny isn’t vital to filling out your Pokedex, but it is an excellent way to continue your adventure long after the main story may have wrapped up.

One thing that will help Alex sleep better at night is his long quest didn’t cost him money as it did for fellow streamer Disguised Toast.

We’ll just have to wait and see what his next shiny Pokemon hunt will consist of – maybe he’ll get just as lucky.
