That is a shiny Lycanroc. You have a 1/4000 chance of encountering one - please tell me you caught it? Shiny Pokemon Are super rare, and they have different coloring than normal Pokemon.

The chance goes above 1/4000 when SOS chaining.
i found him after 8 encounters (i think) EDIT: this was on the question title
That’s just how randomness works. Sometimes you get lucky and find a shiny after almost no encounters.
@SYL didi he ever ask about that in the questions?
@SYL Oh, sorry! I'm not usually the type to get sarcasm so I guess we're equal here.

Also, just letting you in on a secret here, I was the person who upvoted this answer.
