    What were some of your luckiest moments playing through X/Y? Encountering a shiny very early on, capturing a legendary on that first Poké Ball, receiving a super rare Pokémon through Wonder Trade, maybe? Chat chat!

    Definitely the one time when I was chain fishing. I fished up a shiny Skrelp. Had a crap nature (Impish) but it also had Pokerus. :D So that was cool, and very very lucky.

    Shiny infected Skrelp? Unless I'm missing some new game mechanic, the mathematics of that are so far out there that I strongly suggest you stay in a military bunker for a while, because I think you might just get struck by lightning as a meteorite hits you on the head right after you find out you won the lottery and discovered that the new concept of ideal human sex appeal is defined to be you.

    But maybe that's just another Tuesday.

    My luckiest moment in Pokémon (that I vividly remember) was the many times that I came within a sliver of health and 1PP of Spiky Shield away from beating Steven in the ORAS Hoenn E4. (You never specified it had to be good luck.) What's the chances of that happening once? I fought Steven about 30 times, maybe about half of those I lost in this particular unliklihood. 15/30 or 1/2 to the fifteenth power (since it happened fifteen or so times) is (1/2)15 or 1 in 32768. You might recognize that as being EIGHT TIMES as unlikely as finding a shiny in the wild. Meanwhile, I've only found two shinies in the wild, ever. I demand my other six right now.

    But the other side of the coin to only finding two shinies ever was back in regular Sapphire when I caught a shiny Rayquaza. I give up on the math for that, but it seems like a long shot, especially since I wasn't trying for it specifically and didn't notice until after the fact.

    My luckiest moment in Pokémon X was that I received a lvl 100 Arceus through normal trading after having re-started the game and having played for only thirty minutes. Best. Run. Ever. XD

    (I assume we can apply this thread to OR/AS as well?)

    I was recently hatching some leftover eggs I had from breeding projects, and I happened to hatch an egg with a shiny adamant Weedle with perfect attack and speed IVs. Probably one of the worse shinies I could have gotten, because I actually already had a shiny Beedrill from Fire Red. At least this one was competitive though o3o

    I got bored early on (before the first gym) and got a level one Charmander with a good moveset. Low leveled Pokémon like that obey you, supposedly, so he had a good moveset beyond anyone else in the game that time that could be utilized without any obstacles, heh.

    Getting a shiny Pansear on my first day playing.
    Then I accidentally traded him for a Ratatta 5 months later. Nearly a year ago...

    The luckiest moment would probably getting a Togepi over wondertrade. I mean bro. Togepi is my one and only. Really though, I loved getting a Togepi because it gave me an opportunity to use my favorite Pokémon in the entire game.

    In X, I was using the PokeRadar (I think that's what it's called) to hunt for a shiny Eevee. After about 2-3 hours of hunting, I still got nothing. I started to walk out of the bush I was in, and a shiny Houndour appears. No hunting, nothing. It was awesome :)

    Luckiest moment..

    Tbh probably when I first started playing Pokémon and only used my starter (everything else on my team was like level 20 and then I had this like level 68 Empoleon) and I actually managed to beat the elite 4 using just the Empoleon. Of course it took me hella tries to finally beat them but y'know, still felt cool in that moment B)

    Lmao scratch all that :S
    Okay luckiest moment in X/Y..

    Honestly, probably hatching a shiny Noibat on my 12th egg hatch!! I'd heard using the egg method was very tiresome, but I guess I got lucky that time :) Shiny Noibat is so cute, I think he's cuter than shiny Noivern :s

    I think my luckiest moment would be hatching a shiny HP Ice Eevee with 31/28/30/31/31/31 IVs. And with the right ability too! It was perfect because I was breeding it for Jolteon. I ended up selling it here on LV though, because I'm honestly not a big fan of using shiny Pokémon for my competitive battling teams.

    The absolute luckiest thing I've ever got was a Shiny Furfrou 5 minutes in the game. I named it Shiny Dog because I'm that original.

    Also, I caught most of the Legendaries on my first of Second Pokéball. That Includes Mewtwo, Yveltal and Zapdos (Which I can't find anymore)

    To be nice. Frankly I think some people exist simply to make Wonder Trade the amazing thing that it is. also I mean somebody has to balance all the Zigzagoons.

    Mine would be the wonder trade as well I got a Zoroark for a spare charmander which was more than fair. I will say my worst luck was today when a in a regular trade I was presented with a shiny Ho-oh possibly the most stunning Pokémon I've ever seen and Out of my two ledgendary Pokémon and many rare Pokémon nothing was good enough. It breaks my heart to know I came so close.

    While I was playing through X as a nuzlocke I found a shiny Honedge. Oh one really lucky time, I was hatching egg for a shiny eevee, and I finally got one, so I was releasing all the rejects, but luckily I was paying attention and noticed that I had actually hatched a shiny eevee earlier and just missed it, so I got two shiny eevees from it.
