I retry it again after taking a break, I've finally done it :)
Maybe I was just a bit sleepy before and didn't realize what I did wrong.

49ER, if you've done everything in the haunted house there should be a link under the picture.

thank you SHINee, I managed to find it. I did puzzle very fast but did not get a shiny version, so I don't think speed is the key to getting shiny version.

The link won't appear. I don't know what I'm missing. The last thing I did was to go upstairs and give one of those ghost kids the pokeball, but now I'm at a loss what else there is to do X.X I feel like I've clicked everything there is to click six times already, yet I'm obviously still missing something.

Yes, but one room is blocked by the elder ghost and in the other two rooms I only found two books to read. Downstairs in the room with the TV there's still someone turning on the TV and in the piano room another ghost appears, but I've now idea what to do about that.

Edit: Allright, found something and can now enter the formerly blocked room.

Randomness in a puzzle to get the shiny?
That would be...unfair. I can't imagine that is true.
Maybe the time is just lower, like one minute, because the puzzle is smaller than the regular ones.

Guess you simply missed one or two things to click. I went trough all rooms again because I missed one tiny thing before, then it worked.

yeah... kinda unfair.
but some users wrote they needed ~20 seconds and don't get a shiny... so, how fast you have to solve it, to get the shiny? 5 seconds? xDD

yeah I think it is luck based...I am sure I got it in about a minute although I was not watching the clock. And there have been other contest/puzzles where shiny was random. so it is not unheard of

I was quite fast too and didn't get a shiny one. Don't know if it's because the shiny is actually luck based though or if I, despite being fast, still wasn't fast enough. However, the latter wouldn't surprise me.

~20 secs? Really?
Whut..that's indeed strange.
My second tought was how many tiles you had wrong/how many you switched with each other...
But with less time you probably switched less as well...or had very fast hands...

I did not have to switch any tiles. There is an easy way to solve the ruins puzzles. If anyone is on the puzzle and is truly stumped, PM me and I can help you

It should be simple enough to find the edge pieces, but you may need to swap them around due to how blob-ish Gastly is. Just use trial and error, giving it a few seconds every time you move a piece to make sure you're not gonna get a pop-up. For some reason leaving the page and coming back, then doing the puzzle again helped me.

If anyone has gotten through the haunted house and is still stumped on the puzzle, you can PM me for help. Please make sure you are using Google Chrome or Firefox for browser


Also, on a totally unrelated note.....we are at over 4.9 million eggs now, so I hope the staff is ready with a 5 millionth egg promo or will be...kthxbai
