Man, the amount of Anorith and Lileep tasks everywhere is obnoxious. Sucks to throw them away immediately because the weather's way too bad to walk/run and I'm far more interested in the Onix and Cranidos tasks. Onix tasks are relatively common (in a sea of Anorith and Lileep tasks) but I couldn't find a single Cranidos one.

What is the Cranidos task?

Been a pretty good 24hrs in pokgo.
Got a hundo onix from task reward
Caught a hundo shuckle
Traded for a lucky 96 cranidos
Caught 93 shieldon
Caught shiny anorith
Second moves for my 98 and 96 shadow ball mewtwos, hundo kyogre and 98 groudon

Kinda regret not getting second move for 98 moltres though but it happened during middle of the work day. The others were almost instant decisions

Anorith and Lileep aren't boosted?

2nd Anorith I checked was shiny, then after maybe 5-10 checks, I went to the grocery story and got a another one, and a Lileep, on back-to-back checks.

That's like 1 in 200k?!?!

Waiting for the Silph Road rate data but right now Onix is the only one that's confirmed to be boosted. Anorith and Lileep supposedly aren't, but I've been seeing more shiny screens than usual in my local discord. No luck yet on Anorith but I did get a Lileep already.

Got a second shiny Houndour :/

Up to 0/86 on Aerodactyl.

Who had the bright idea to not boost 2k egg rates? Quit with the damn 5ks.

Nothing shiny in these parts.

Must have done 10 of those 'Earn 3 buddy candy' tasks. Thank you Burmy.

Another shiny Onix. Its shiny rate has to be like 1/60 at the most. Just stacking 3 of the evolve quests gives you so many chances at a shiny.

That last shiny Lileep is eluding me.

The Onix quest is probably your best bet, although it definitely favors people who played the game for a while and have like hundreds if not thousands of Anorith/Lileep candy.
That quest isn't as common as the buddy candy or egg hatching in my area. :(

I've caught hundreds of Lileep and Anorith so candy for evolutions isn't an issue. Just need those tasks!

Got a +1000 CP Shiny Geodude just now, got a Shieldon task just before so I could tick of Bastiodon. Thought about walking Cranidos, but decided on Burmy. I just need two more Cranidos (16 candy) to get him while Burmy is a lot more walking.

Gible makes the most sense if you have it because it's 1.25 km per candy right now but will be 5km and you need ~100 after you hatch a 10km Gible and get about 25 for free. 500km, that's some magikarp bullshit.

I had some rare candies, ended up getting Gible evolved, so I'm done. I need to trade with some friends to fill out the rest of the dex.

They've released most of gen4, so I guess we'll get the gen3 mythical quest soon and a the last remaining gen 4s, then gen 5 will be released with immediately being nerfed by a gen 1 month long event.

There's no way Gible isn't a community day Pokemon at some point, so I'm prioritizing Burmy first.

How do shiny spawns work? Is it based on location of spawn or the check itself? Do I need to be at the right place at the right time or does it not matter?
The mechanism isn't know yet, but probably some combination of the spawn point identifier and your account identifier determining if something can be shiny.
(As it is become clear some spawn points can't generate shiny Pokémon at all, and some people have been very lucky at some places getting shinies while others getting none at the same places)

Somewhere.
Oh damn, another week of getting extra candy and stardust ha ha. And so there is issues with adventure sync. It certainly has felt a bit wonky.

Also ended up getting a shiny Anorith with baby CP just minutes before the raid hour this last Wednesday lol. Will take that!

Edit: AND JUST GOT SHINY LATIOS HOLY SHIT!
