Installation instructions

Shiny Counter works on any Android devices (requires Android 4.0 or later). You can also install and run this application on your PC or Mac by using an Android emulator app. Here's how to do it:

Install Shiny Counter on Android devices

Select one of the two options below, depending on the type of file you downloaded from this page.

Install APK file

Find and select the APK file. Tap 'Install' when the APK installer menu shows up. Afterwards, complete the installation by following any additional instructions that appear on-screen.

Install XAPK file

To install a .XAPK file, first download and install the Split APKs Installer (SAI) application. Then, open the SAI app and choose the "Install APKs/XAPK" option. Locate the .XAPK file you wish to install and click 'Install.'

Install Shiny Counter on Windows 10/11 and Mac

This app can be operated on a computer with an Android emulator. While there are various emulators available, this tutorial uses BlueStacks, which is compatible with both Mac and Windows systems.

Installing BlueStacks is straightforward. Simply download the installer from the BlueStacks website and run it. Be aware that the installer is large and setting up the engine might take some time.

If you don't have other programs associated with APK/XAPK file types, BlueStacks will open these files by default. To install an app, either double-click the APK/XAPK file or drag-and-drop it onto the BlueStacks home screen. Then, confirm the installation. Once installed, the app will appear on the BlueStacks home screen.

That's all! You've now successfully installed Shiny Counter on your PC Windows and Mac using BlueStacks.

A completely free application which can be used to count the number of random encounters, soft reset, etc.

- The app calculates odds for any hunts you are doing or planning, all you have to do is input the details, eg. Game, Method, Charm, No. of Encounters. The app even calculates methods with continuous odds such as PokéRadar or Chain Fishing based on how many encounters you've had.
- Unlike other apps of its kind, this app has a built in save file so you don't have to even think of keeping track of your encounter yourself.
- The current number of encounters can be manually adjusted using the encounter adjuster in case of any errors.
- There are specific counters for the SOS and Wormhole methods which take the likes of PP, Light Years Travelled, etc. based on the method.
- As mentioned previously, the app supports shiny hunting for all games from Generation 2 all the way up to Generation 7 with the release of Ultra Sun and Moon.
- Language(s) supported: English

An app made by a shiny hunter for shiny hunters, any feedback is greatly appreciated on my quest to make the best shiny hunting tool available.
Added brand new specific SOS and Wormhole hunting counters, going into further detail on the respective methods.
Overall improvements.
