# PokemonGo Shiny Chance Calculator

This calculator will simulate the probability of encountering a shiny Pokemon.

Rates are assumed from the SilphRoad research

**How does this calculator work?**

Each time you encounter a shiny Pokemon, it is an "Independent Event". Previous encounters have no impact over your future shiny encounters. Using maths we can simulate how likely it is to find a shiny after "X" encounters.

This is what this calculator does

You can also estimate how likely it is you have or haven't encountered a particular shiny yet, by entering your current encounter total (make sure you started recording after that particular shiny was released)

**How did you get these odds?**

This calculator assumes that shiny rates have not changed since the following SilphRoad Shiny Study was released

**Things to consider**

- Shiny rates are estimates only

- Shiny rates could change at any time

- Shiny chaining has no effect in PokemonGo

- Trading species counts toward your Pokedex

- Shiny checks are independent events

- eg. Clicking a potential shiny always has the same odds
