Since I don't believe in paying to get advantages in games, I have to earn Shiny the free way - picking mushrooms. However, I have noticed over my experience with the game, that the amount of Shiny from mushrooms tends to be none, being less likely for 3, and even less likely for getting 8 shiny. I want to know how often the average person can expect to get 3 or 8 shiny. This is why, over the next few weeks, I will embark on the "Shiny Experiment". I will document every mushroom I pick. Then, I will calculate the average shiny from each mushroom. From there, I can calculate the average shiny per day, average per month, and average per year, as well as how long it takes to earn certain items in the store.
