PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
1 vote

So I don't understand... idk if it just hasn't updated, or what, but my Festival Plaza Rank is 52, and I've beat the Pokémon league, caught the ultra beasts, unlocked the super battles at the battle tree, and even beat master rank in the Battle Royal.

So I can't imagine what the problem is, other than "encountering" semantics? Like, maybe it didn't count because I chained it instead of just experiencing a random shiny Pokémon pop up on the first try?

Basically, I spent 3.5 hours chaining Ditto's on Mt. Hokulani, which paid off, I got a blue shiny ditto, I named it 'Blue Goo' and it's now in the day care center to hatch eggs.

And yet the Miscellaneous Ranking on my friend's Pokémon Moon says I have encountered 0 Shiny Pokémon!??

Please help!!

EDIT: I've also hatched a shiny Honedge and a shiny Mareanie thru Masuda Method, although the Mareanie was an accident; I was just trying to get perfect stats...still nothing tho

Uhh yeah just a sec.  And yeah...personally it's dumb either way. It would be so much nicer if it was simple
I don't really get how something needing internet to upload data or whatever to the internet so other people can see that data through the internet is dumb, but whatever you say.
Scratch that; I can't find my sister's game (yes that was the "friend" I was referring to; same difference, right? ...it was just less complicated) but I can't find her Moon right now. I'll comment if anything changes, sorry.

Thanks for the heads-up, tho; that's the best help I've gotten so far
And I say it's dumb, only because not everyone has internet access, and there's a lot of people like me that don't have it all the time. Maybe if it could be saved to the game card like everything else is....idk
I'm pretty sure that it is saved to the game card. It just needs internet in order to show the data do other people.

Best answer

The Shiny Pokemon Encountered count in the Festival Plaza is indeed tied to Wild Encounters. It does not increment on shiny SOS encounters, gifts, or hatched eggs.

Thank you for a definitive answer. I still think that’s bull crap tho

@sumwun thanks I was wondering about that; I didn’t see it (my phone is cracked really badly)
