    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Anyone have any luck with SR for legendaries in ORAS? Just for fun, how many SRs did it take ya?


    What are my odds of getting a shiny, with the shiny charm?

    Got Regigigas in 3 soft resets and Latios with 14. Both with the charm.
    It's just luck per normal. I had that luck with those two but spent ages on Zekrom.

    With charm it's 1 in 2,730.6 for SRing.

    There's Gen 6 RNG you know. In some way answering the question, assuming you care about IVs, SRing for shiny is just out of the question. I save that after getting the legends in their non-shiny forms, free time. Back when SRing was the only option, I had encountered, with the shiny charm, a shiny Kyurem after at least 1000 soft resets, but didn't catch it on account of bad IVs and nature.
