Grats on your shiny find!!

Here's the two I have found. I got the juvenile last month and the kitten just a couple days ago. If I find another I plan to raise it to an adult so I can have all three stages. I'd really like to get the Constella but I've only seen two in world and neither was shiny.

I don't know if the event effects the shiny appearance at all.

I'm reasonably sure we have not had events that effect shiny rates so far.
That said I doubt we'll see a legit shiny constella anytime soon, with that catch rate it's bound to escape anyways even if someone lucks out and finds one.

I caught my constella a few days ago. I just feed it first.

I just recently saw and caught my very first constella. Are they supposed to be hard to capture?

Unfortunately, yes. Rarity coincides with "likely to escape nets" for some reason here.
You have a roughly 50% chance at best after feeding them to full, and it feels lower than that from my experience. Probably something closer to 20-40% with a full food bar, I wouldn't know for sure without seeing the coding numbers involved.

I just caught another one. :drop: Maybe its just luck. The first one I fed only after the first 2 nets failed, and then it caught at 50% fed, because I'm lazy. The second caught without feed.

I don't think rare being hard to catch is unique though. I remember legendary in pokemon being a real pain to catch too. (I'm lookin at you Entei :shake: ) The only game I've played that gave rare pets easily that I can remember was Dragon Warrior Monster there I'm fairly certain the rare ones were just scripted.

Has anyone caught a Shiny Aky?

Don't think so, at least I haven't seen anyone using it in the event and I haven't seen anyone mention it.
It is on my to-do list: I've been looking and catching everything in my path every hour I'm awake in case there's some "shinys show up for constant catching" algorithm like chaining in the background. No luck on the shiny Aky yet, though what I'm really after is the shiny Constella which will more likely than not escape if the planets align and it actually shows up, because as it is right now the less rare things like Kibbit kittens still escape quite often even at 100% bait meter.

Also since this is the "Shiny thread": Image
This next one is more of an example of shiny Kogos in the wild: Image
Sparkles around the Kogo are a good indicator you have a shiny on your hands, but keep in mind:
THE SPARKLES AROUND THE KOGO DO NOT SHOW UP BEHIND TREES, THEY ARE HIDDEN FROM VIEW LIKE THE REST OF THE KOGO IS.
I'm making sure to be very clear about that because there was some minor confusion about that before.
As you can see in the pictures, the Owlprin and Alrunes smallest forms are quite small and very easy to miss, so if they're hidden behind objects, you will never know they were there until they move into view.

I have seen a shiny aky on someone's land, but I don't remember who, it was a newer player that I don't see much of.

I would so love one, they are stunning
