...the standard chance is 1/4096 (there are no enhancement of Shiny chances from Raids).


It would be logical to assume that Shiny Charm only works for you. If another person has a Shiny Charm, it likely will not affect your chances. I have no definite source, but I'll try to find something to back that up.

Hope I helped!

I'm going to check all your questions and get back to you on that. Give me a couple minutes
Lol ok
Ok so out of your 70 questions with an answer, I've answered 24, meaning I've answered roughly 34% of your questions.
Bruh i swear you answer all of them
To be fair, I do answer quite a few of yours lol.
That's not entirely true. The raid dens shininess is set when the beam appears, and the game know when the next shiny will be. It appears once every 16,000 raid dens but because of the every four encounters does a reset it whatever you can manipulate that. Here's a video explaining it. https://youtu.be/_2wARPni11o also shiny charm only works for host
You don’t need to bash the other post to put yours forward, even if yours I may be correct. Just draw attention to your own and hope that sound minded people say “hey, ya know, that’s kinda better than the other answer”. :P

The "odds" of finding a random shiny in a Max Raid Den is 1/4096. However these odds can be affected by multiple variables if you're shiny hunting.

If you are doing the date skip method, but skipping one day at a time, then the odds are ~1/16,384. This is because the game is coded so that every four days, a new Pokemon has a chance of being shiny. That chance is 1/4096 but because there are four Pokemon in four days the odds are ~ 1/16,384

If you are doing the date skip method, and skipping four days at a time, the odds are ~1/4096. This is because like I said above, the game only calculated a new shiny value every four days. Therefore the odds are ~1/4096.

It also should be noted that if you go into a Max Raid Den, and then say lose the raid, then the Pokemon you fight is the exact same Pokemon with the same stats, moves, ability EVs and IVs.

In addition, if you go to 18:55 in the video, Austin John talks about how the first three Pokemon, in the four day cycle will always be the same. This is of course talking about repeating the same four day cycle, but that is why you skip four days when shiny hunting

Thank you krlw, i can always count on you for math related things like these. Thank you

I wish i could upvote your comment
Krlw that is completely correct. I would add that the Pokemon in the raid den will be the same exact Pokemon if you leave and re-enter the den. Plz tell me how I can edit my answer
Ok I dramatically changed my answer I hope it makes more sense now
I removed my downvote-- the answer is *much* better and much more clear. I'm still a little salty so I won't BA, but here's an upvote instead. Thank you
Your welcome! I just want to get the right information out!
