Regional Shiny Rates zijn niet aangepast volgens Niantic

Jeffry van Geel, 19 september 2019

Zover wij hebben kunnen terugvinden heeft Niantic nog nooit eerder gecommuniceerd over shiny rates, maar daar is vandaag verandering in gekomen. De Community Manager van Niantic heeft een officiele verklaring gegeven over de Regional Shiny Rates:

“Hi Trainers, we wanted to comment on this directly to provide an update on this situation. To start, I can confirm that there have been no changes to the encounter rate of Shiny Regional Pokémon.

This discussion was flagged to us, and we’ve taken extensive action that I’ll detail below to rule out anything that could have either directly or indirectly impacted the rate at which Shiny Regional Pokémon can be encountered.

To that effect, we’ve conducted multiple, thorough reviews of all changes to the game made over the past 72 hours. Part of these reviews included looking back over our event rollout procedure, all changes associated with the Ultra Bonus unlock, and the implementation of fixes for recent changes that resulted in in-game errors. Additionally, we’ve reviewed gameplay records and have found that the actual encounter rate for Shiny Regional Pokémon matches our settings.

All of this investigation affirmed that there have been no changes to the rate at which Shiny Regional Pokémon appear.

We understand that Shiny Pokémon are exciting and highly sought after, but changing this metric in the middle of an event is in direct conflict with our company values and something that we would not intentionally do.

We appreciate the passionate discussion on this topic over the past few days and wish you the best of luck in your quest to catch Shiny Regional Pokémon.”

In het kort vertelt hij dat de eerste berichten direct bij Niantic onder de aandacht zijn gebracht. Vervolgens hebben ze onderzoek gedaan en geconcludeerd dat er niets veranderd was. Tevens past dit ook niet in het beleid van het bedrijf en zal dus nooit bewust gebeuren.
