[Generation 8 - Sword and Shield] Shiny Lock from editing?

Recommended Posts

Alright so maybe I'm just crazy, as I don't believe that this has EVER been a thing in previous pokemon games...

 

If you edit your pokedex values in Sword and Shield, to lets say, you've already battled 500 or even 999 of the pokemon you're looking for, then proceed to shiny hunt for it legit, is there a thing where you're prevented from finding it as a shiny due to messing w/ the pokedex?

I'm currently 5x over odds yamper.

 

Am I crazy and just having bad luck?

I don't think this exists.  If it did, I would think that you would hear about it more.  I'm having horrible luck myself, 3700 for Rookidee across two consoles, one hacked and one not, so I think you just have bad luck.

Edit:  I think the odds aren’t 1/683, I think the shiny chances are coded incorrectly because of this tweet: 

but I don’t have the game’s code, nor would I be able to understand it.  I would just switch to Masuda method

So yeah this guy's tweets and Serbii is right. Pokemon.Com is either wrong, or not telling the whole story.

I swapped to MM, had my shiny yamper within an hour and a half in 99 eggs.
