The Shiny Hunting Helper was born out of the need to have a visual representation of SOS Battles, present in Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
Back when Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon had just been launched, I asked if there was a tool of some sort (website, app, software) that would help me keep track of the chain. When I asked it on Reddit, one of the replies I got was "You have a calculator in Windows, don't you? That'll do.". This didn't sit well with me. So I made my own website. It kept track of the encounters, and would show the current shiny, perfect IV and Hidden Ability odds. I showed it to a few people over on Bird Keeper Toby's Discord server and was convinced to expand the site.
With much work, I made a page for every shiny hunting method currently available, with the odds that I was presented (some of them were wrong). And after about a year, I posted it on Reddit, and people liked it, but also complained that there were stuff missing, and rightfully so.
So I took another year to work out the missing kinks, and still, some of them are yet to be ironed out. But at the time of writing, all the odds present in the Shiny Hunting Helper are accurate, namely the Gen6 PokéRadar and Gen7 SOS Battles odds.
But still, I'm only human, and as a human, I make mistakes. If you find any information on this site that you believe is wrong, contact me through Twitter on either my personal or site accounts. Please do provide as much information as you can, so I can figure out what the problem is, and correct it if possible.
If you have an idea for the site, be sure to send us an e-mail. If we end up doing it, we'll be sure to credit you for the idea.
