Hehe, glad my notes can help ^_^. Caught my fourth (out of six) shiny yesterday using this method (after taking a break for a few days). It is a Breloom ^_^. I’d say its pretty much proven if I get a shiny everyday I try. Not sure if the chinchou is absolutely necessary though.
You need to trade it with someone. I found someone nice and trustworthy to do it with me (they also had shiny pumpkaboo). If you ever need to trade with someone you can trade with me ^_^. I only use and collect shinies or normal guys that have my OT name and number (so I have no interest in getting shinies that I haven’t found or hatched myself).
