Pokemon Sword and Shield offered mind-boggling odds to Reddit user

Nugsy’s hunt for Shiney Pokemon saw him collecting nearly 200 eggs. And he indeed had to grind a lot for the miracle to occur. The user worked at it for long hours and, with his 177th egg hatched, he managed to dig out a Shiny Turtonator. This should have conduced his hunt, as the odds of finding them were incredibly low. Fortunately, the user didn’t need to wait for more than 10 more eggs to hatch yet another Shiny Turtonator.

Shiny Pokemon are not easy to find, and the odds associated with them make things impossible to obtain. However, this hasn’t stopped gamers from achieving impossible goals as the community continues to find elaborate methods to acquire them.

Not so long ago, Twitch streamer MitchOG also achieved a similar feat during his playthrough of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shinning Pearl. He also managed to run into two Shiny Pokemon in his quest to get them.
