I now have a full box of shinies in SUMO thanks to the ditto that I caught. I just need a few more and I'll be satisfied. After this, I'm planning on getting the rest of the stamps for my passport. Only ones I need are the Multi/Double Battle Tree stamps and the PokeFinder stamp. Let the grind begin.

So yeah, I went a full 600 encounters before giving up on my shiny Growlithe. #listening I hunted Drifloon next, got that under 50 encounters. Went to Cottonee after that, got that under 70. Game must be acknowledging my efforts.
So I was totally prepared to go all in on trying to get a shiny Litten. I saw some guy use the same method I was going to use and get nothing for like 9 hours straight. I grab my Red Bulls, all pumped up and ready to go.... get the Litten after 2 eggs.
