Hello! This is my first thread, sorry for bothering you here. I asked the support center but i received no answer so i'll ask here.
I started a shiny chain a while ago with two of the event Skarmory i received. I've got a premium account and i've hatched 225 of them; no shiny
Now, i know this could be just my really really bad luck , but the chances of this are extremely low (you can do the math with any probability calculator tool online).
I'm starting to think the event Skarmory is just bugged and unable to produce any shiny, but i guess i need Riako on this.

Thanks.

I wish there was a badge for the unluckiest chain of the month xD


Jokes aside, i just thought that *maybe*, since the mega-able version is not breedable yet, there could be problems with the plain shiny one as well. But i don't know. And i might drop the chain if this is the case (we still don't know anything about the introduction of the mega-able, so...)

Riako will post in the minor updates thread when we can get mega-able Skarmory from the lab and breeding, so it's not yet available that way.

A premium user recently had to reach a chain of over 400 just to get two shinies from a hunt- there's a lot of luck involved, unfortunately your chain is just unlucky. I hope it hatches for you soon!

Hope you guys are right, and thanks for the answers ^^
Guess i'll keep doing this, let's see where it goes (fun fact: i did the math and the probability of a chain like this is less than a half of the next egg being a shiny, lol)

Just to clarify: you were right ^^
No bug. I hatched one after a #254 chain. Just extremely unlucky
