This is how it went yesterday.
When the event started, I went to the market to get myself some sandwiches. Came back hone with 4 Researches done and already one Shiny Castform. Around 1.45pm I went out again and spun as many Pokestops and did as many Researches as I could. I did delete a few ‘Battle in a Raid’ tasks though. From the six-seven I found of them, I’ve only done twice of those tasks, because I raided a Machamp with two other people. Of course the Machamp I got has terrible IV’s. I can still remember, it was 4.20pm, was about to give up with Lotad, but then I found my 7th Shiny Castform. A minute later, my 8th one. Two minutes later, I found Shiny Castform number nine. Two minutes later again I found Shiny Castform number ten. In the same minute I did also find my very first Shiny Lotad after ~75 Researches done. Like three minutes later I found ANOTHER Shiny Castform. I have this on a screen video, but I don’t know how to post screen videos on here. Seven minutes later than I found my 11th Shiny Castform, I found another Shiny Lotad, with one or two normal in between the two Shiny Lotad. One minute later another Shiny Castform and another minute later my third Shiny Lotad. Ten minutes later yet another Shiny Castform and that was the end of the Shiny Spam wave. I think I’ve done 3/4 of the Researches from all the PokéStops in my city. I’d say 120. That is a very realistic amount. Sadly only three of them gave me a Shiny Lotad. Castform had a higher Shiny rate for me than the rate is during Community Day. Got 21 Shiny out of (I think) around 200 Castform. Walked exactly 20km yesterday, and reached the 50km this week for the very first time ever. Hatched 2 Eggs and the third is about to hatch.
Weather was mostly Cloudy but changed to Rainy and back sometimes. That was frustrating because it took long for the Weather Boosted spawns to spawn again.
Well that was my Lotad RD.
