Guaranteed Encounter for Annual Legends

I and others have been having a reoccurring issue with the annual legend events (Kyurem/Zeraora/Shaymin), this issue being that there have been periods in which there's been no sight of the legend until well over 70-100K interactions have been made. In my personal experience, many times I've interacted for multiple days without having the encounter. While I'm aware that seeing the legend is completely dependent on chance and sometimes you just have to keep going and wait, when it happens multiple times back-to-back, it gets extremely frustrating and discouraging, especially seeing that you went so long without having an encounter only to hatch a non-shiny.

As a solution to this, I'm proposing that there be a specific limit to the number of interactions allowed without seeing the legend. After this number is reached/exceeded, you are guaranteed to have the encounter on your next reload of the page. This would be to benefit those who are attempting to obtain a shiny version of the legend, as it gives them a way to consistently hatch eggs.

In case there's concern for the value of the legends' shiny forms dropping due to them hatching more often, I'd like to first state that out of the total number of all three of these Pokemon species on-site, less than 0.2% of them are shiny. Hypothetically, yes, there would be an increase in the number of shiny annual legends hatched, however the current number of shinies that already exist is so miniscule that I personally don't think this potential increase will even be an issue. I also think that the increase in the number of normal versions hatching would balance this out.

What does everyone think? ^^

I think this is a good idea. Ive interacted a lot during these events just to not get a single one, and I don't even shiny hunt them! This would be very helpful to have.

I agree, but I think the number of interactions you need to make before this happens should be pretty high. At least 70-100k.

I like this idea as well. I had several back-to-back occurrences during the last Zeraora run where it wouldn't show up for 75k-150k interactions. As a result, I eventually gave up as the pain in my hands wasn't equal to the possible shiny reward.

I also think these pokemon need better shiny chances anyways. Like yeah they're supposed to be rare... But some of the oldest accounts have still not even seen one while consistently interacting their hands to death.

To be totally honest I'd rather scrap this type of random chance all together and do maybe a new interaction reward where eventually you can buy an egg for one amount, and a shiny egg for another amount, and throw in the plushies at some price. A very high one obviously, sort of like how the Halloween event ran the SM cursed rapidash. But from interactions only, you prevent it being something purchasable (until people sell their own I guess) and something that can only be obtained through hard work.

Could even rotate the pokemon every couple months to keep them a little artificially rarer, idk.

I just really hate the current method and RNG

@-Verosika- true. i agree with u. i dont like having the shiny version of them be obtained through rng. that's why I never bothered participating in any of their events.

if you achieved your dreams, what's next?

Support! It usually drives me crazy when events like these happen and there's days I can't interact due to IRL stuff. The appearances are based on RNG and some people aren't so lucky.
