Pokemon Go player gets ‘happiest three minutes’ with insane catch streak

A Pokemon Go player has struck gold with the “happiest three minutes” of catching rare Pokemon.

In the world of Pokemon Go, hunting for shiny Pokemon is one of the game’s biggest challenges. The base chance of encountering a Shiny Pokémon is 1 in 500, meaning there are very few of them.

Because Shiny Pokémon are difficult to find on a normal, non-event day, many players look forward to special Community Day events or other special times that increase the chances of finding and catching Shiny Pokémon.

But for one lucky player, it only took him “three minutes” to find and catch not just one shiny Pokémon, but several of them.

The player with the username “Sea_Raisin9297” on Reddit, shared news about their incredible series of catches with the Pokemon Go community on Reddit.

Her remarkable stretch began with her grabbing a shiny Cubchoo. While that’s already a win on any given day, the player followed it up with back-to-back catches from Shiny Pineco and Koffing.

While most top comments I didn’t select the durationWhile the screenshots suggest it was more like four or five minutes, the majority of players simply shared their amazement.

The player’s “insanely lucky” catching streak prompted many other coaches to urge him to buy a lottery ticket immediately.

Others who were also amazed by the incredible feat were left more disappointed by the sight, having recently struggled to catch even a shiny Pokémon.

“Every time I see a post like this, I immediately open Pogo and then get super disappointed at the lack of shinys around me.” One player wrote in response.
