Trainer Pass and Shiny/Shadow Odds

Since getting the Trainer Pass, I have wanted to know just what have the shiny and shadow odds improved to. In the past Sam said the normal odds in PTD1 were about 1/8000 though he kept the actual number secret to make hacking more difficult. As far as I know, that number hasn't changed since and is the same odds used in PTD2. That does seem a little unreasonable given PTD2 rounds are only 30 pokemon long but that's an old argument not being made here.

Calculating the odds are really simple. Every round gives you 1 Pokedollar. So all I do is play a few rounds every now and then and just work out how much money I've earned. Most of the time didn't even bother to place pokemon on the level. So here are my stats so far:

Rounds: 313
Total Pokemon: 9390
Total Shiny and Shadow Pokemon: 20
Odds of a Pokemon being Shiny/Shadow: 0.213%

So it looks like the odds have changed from being 1/8000 to about 1/400 or 1/500. That is a massive change, especially for the low low price of only $2 (plus postage and handling, please consult the terms and conditions to discover if this product is right for you). That is a lot better when each level is only 30 pokemon long.

Wow... 1/500 is quite good odds. I've played PTD2 a lot, and I can't say I've gotten more than 15 shinies and shadows altogether from the wild. Notably, I have caught a Shadow Raikou but most of the times its just Zubats.

The biggest issue is the most of us don't have credit cards and can't pay for it. If he asked for 100, or even 200 snd coins, I would collect and happily oblige, but 2$ is quite un-redeemable to a lot of people. That's why he should allow us to use Funding Microcents and instead of funding for 2$, ask us to fund for 5 or 10. I got the cosmoids through funding microcents, and it's a way that more people can engage while he can receive more revenue.
I also asked sam about the exact odds, but he didn't tell me D:

It's true most of us don't have a credit card but my friend has a Paypal account so I can ask him to buy for me and ill pay him. It's pretty reasonable I will probably get by tomorrow.
