Best answer

The best way to hunt shiny Pokemon in the ultra-warp ride is to always aim for the Type-4 Portal, which is the portal with the largest ring around it (In other words, it's the portal that will look the largest). Keep in mind, the colour of the portal will not have any effect on shiny encountering. The colour only determines what Pokemon you have a possibly of finding a shiny of.

Not only the size (type) of portal, but the light-years traveled also has a large influence to the probability of finding a shiny Pokemon. All the information about types of wormholes and shiny calculations ca be found here, but you can tell that a Type-4 portal with the furthest amount of light years traveled will result into the highest probability of a encountering a shiny Pokemon (being approximately 36%).

Hope I helped! :)

white ones contain ultra beasts, though, which only have the normal 1/4096 chance
Type-3 wormholes going further in also house shinys. I got like three of them in my PC boxes. Technically type-4 only house Legends.
type fours will only house legends until you have caught all the legends of that area. Then, it'll give an increased shiny rate
Thank you!
