I somehow immediately got a shiny growlithe as my 4th Pokemon at the start of the game. What were my odds?

The shiny rate is in the game files and some nerd out there must have already gone through them.
Yeah, I'm seeing a lot of Quest shinies on https://www.reddit.com/r/ShinyPokemon/
I'm thinking it's probably somewhere in the ballpark of Go odds, but I have nothing to back it up.
Go has shinies? tmyk
Just BA an answer...
Why would I BA something that's merely a guess for a constant number.

Pokemon Quest does have Shiny Pokemon in it and they can be found through cooking various recipes. It seems as though the chances are likely 1/100 or 1/50, somewhere in that range!

Found looking at this vid.

I wouldn't say the person in the video is knowledgeable at all, if all they've given is a 'guesstimate'. Don't think this is conclusive.
I would like an exact answer please.
That would be too hard.
If the exact ratio (1/8192, 1/4096 etc.) exists for every other game it exists for Quest too. Like I said in the comment I left on the question, someone will dig it up eventually.
