See the final version, Poke-O-Matic, that automates breeding, cloning and shiny hunt here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyJPs...

A hands-free shiny finder I built using a microcontroller, it chain fishes at full speed and without fail at a touch of a button. The fishing keeps going without human input until a shiny shows up, at which point it stops and sound a buzzer to notify the user.

It took 81 chains to catch a shiny in this case, but during my other tests it's usually around 50, and sometimes even less than 20 chains get you one.

This video was originally named "Pokemon X and Y: Fully Automatic shiny Pokemon catcher!", but I now think finder is more appropriate since it alerts you instead of actually catching it.

Parts used:
1x Arduino Micro: $25, if you use a standalone atmega328p it would be $2 with exactly the same functionality.
2x LM358: less than $1 each.
1x 74HC540: didn't buy it, probably $1 - $2.
1x 16x2 LCD: around $10.
