Many methods have been introduced in Pokemon games where anyone can have a higher chance of encountering a shiny Pokemon such as the PokeRadar and Horde methods in Pokemon X and Y, and the DexNav method in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Well in the new games, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, they introduce a new method which will increase the chances of 3 things- higher IV’s, having a hidden ability, and the Pokemon being shiny. This wonderful new method is called the SOS method. The SOS method is very simple but will require a little skill. This method consists of any Pokemon calling for help in the middle of a battle, and the called in Pokemon has the higher chance of being a shiny. In order to speed up the process of the Pokemon calling in another Pokemon, you will need to knock it to red health. Then every time a new Pokemon is called in, you KO it and repeat calling in more Pokemon. Sometimes when you fight a Pokemon and it calls for help, its help won’t come so you use an item called an Adrenaline Orb which increases the chances of the Pokemon you’re going against to call for help. You can buy this useful item at any PokeMart for only $300.
The things that make this method very unique is the fact that you can try hunting for ANY shiny Pokemon in the game and that the method takes place in the middle of the battle. So although this method takes time and patience, it will be very worth it when you encounter a color altered Pokemon and sparkles fly off it.
