brightknightie: Cropped screenshot of my PokemonGO avatar as seen in gyms (Pokemon Go)
A shiny magikarp was waiting for me between my apartment and my mailbox when I got home tonight! I wasn't shiny-hunting; I was fetching my snail-mail. It has 70% IVs, but... shiny! (I was so excited that I can't even remember now whether it was shiny (yellow) or normal (orange) on the main screen before I tapped it.* But there is a "shiny" animation to catch your attention once you tap a shiny, in case you don't otherwise recognize the difference.)

I wonder how rare these will turn out to be? In the main-series games, I understand, the red gyarados was the one shiny all but guaranteed to every player. Perhaps we're all meant to encounter one shiny magikarp during this United Nations World Water Day (week) event? Hmmm.

(Oh, yeah, and remember to sign up for [community profile] fkficfest soon. That's important, too. Sure. Of course it is. Shiny shiny shiny... ~grin~)

* Addendum: Mystic7 reports that shininess becomes visible after tapping. Also, shiny spawns, unlike all others, are individual (that is, for only one player each time). Oh, and shiny magikarp can reportedly be non-shiny dittos... cruel tease!
