I went to the wild area to find the Wanderer Hawlucha so that my Compound eyes Ganvntula could have a 20% chance to hold Kings Rock. The problem is thatnit never holds one. I would normally attribute this to bad luck, but 20% shouldn't be screwing me over right?

Is there something I'm missing?

It probably is just bad luck.

Well, make sure your Galvantula is at the front of your party. If this is the case, you’ve just been having terrible luck. An alternative to the Hawlucha method is getting a Kings Rock on Route 8.

Hope this helps! :)

If you make sure that a Pokemon with the Compound Eyes ability (or, new to Sw/Sh, the Super Luck ability behaves the same way) is in the first slot as the battle begins, an opposing species with a 5% chance to hold an item has that chance upped to 20%, and 50% chance hold items become 60%. If it's not actually in the first slot, and was either switched in or preceded by a fainted Pokemon, those abilities have no effect.
Ah, ok.

Out of battle effects. Not my forte.
