Length To Find a Shiny By SR'ing?

0 votes

Today I started trying to Soft Reset for a shiny Giratina, but it's taking me really long, here are some details.

-I'm using my old Diamond Version.
-It's my first time Soft Resetting for a shiny.

Does anyone know how long it takes?
And also, does anyone have any tips?

Thanks,
Neilio

There is no telling how it takes. Your chances of finding a Shiny Giratina in Diamond are 1/8192, so basically you should only expect to find one Shiny Giratina with every 8192 you encounter (though if you are lucky or unlucky, you may encounter them more frequently or less frequently).

Since this is entirely dependant on luck, it is impossible to tell how long exactly it would take. However, we can basically confirm that it will be later rather than sooner; I wouldn't say that odds of 1/8192 are in your favour.

Basically, just keep persisting. It is stupidly rare, so don't expect to find one early on.

I am extremely persistent and a defeatist at some times, I believe I can do it!
