Have you encountered any shiny Pokémon yet in Sword or Shield? Which ones and how did you get them? Also, what do you think about the new “square shiny” type?

I have not yet encountered any myself. I don’t see having two different types of shiny Pokémon as necessary but I don’t really think it’s a bad thing either so my thoughts is that it is kinda meh.

I got a shiny with squares in the desert, it was the new crappy snake. But I killed it because I was OP and I don't care about shinies.
You what? Nooooooo! You should have captured it and traded it to me. :( JK

Um, I haven't run into a shiny in the wild just yet, and I have restarted my quest just to enjoy the adventure some more than I previously did. What I mean by this is me checking out every corner and place for stuff, talk to the people scattered about, etc. But I did breed for a shiny Mawile and got it like at around 300 eggs, with the shiny charm under my wing. Before it, some dude/dudette traded me a shiny Haterenne. :) I was all smiles when I got it. Plus, I think that Haterenne has the square type. :)

Atsuma's shiny count: 2 [so far]
