Heard about a scyther nest near me with an alleged boosted shiny rate. Went to check it out and caught 3 shinies in 2 hours.

I wasn't very excited about trapinch, but caught a few as soon as I saw them. The second was a shiny, which I promptly transferred without thinking. I've done that with several shinies. Then I was busy until about 5 minutes left in the event, so tried to get my shiny back. 4 out of the first 5 turned out to be shiny, so I just stopped there.
