I have a question about shiny Pokemon. I know that they are extremely rare and valuable versions of they're normal forms, but where do you find them?
I am playing Pokemon Leaf Green at the moment, and I have never seen a Shiny Pokemon in that game, or any Pokemon game I have played. Is there something specific I am supposed to do to make them appear?

[I'm sorry if there is already a topic like this, but my computer wasn't loading the search engine to try to look for it. ;-;]

nah you simply find them randomly with a massive amount of luck. they can be anywhere, the odds of seeing one are very low though

its at random in a 1/8000something chance wherever you can find pokemon.
So theres nothing you can do to make them appear, But in DP there is a item called Pokeradar that chains the pokemon and that help get shinys faster, you can read about that elsewhere because im not typing it. (not to be rude just cuzs its long and im lazt) :)

I see. I had no idea that were that rare. It's no wonder I've never seen one.

Thank you for you're help. :]

The chances are 1/8192.

Sadly, there's no way to modify that (unless you cheat like me).

If you had DP, you could just chain, but we're talking Leaf Green.

You can see them right away, my friend said that one time the poochyena at the begginning of ruby was shiny.

Any Pokemon can be shiny, even your starters. You just have to be pretty darn lucky.

if you reset, you maybe get a shiny starter. I tried it about 5000 times, but I did not get one...bad luck...

No. o____________o;

Where did you get that information? Each wild Pokemon you encounter has a 1/8193 chance of being shiny. This doesn't mean that by 4193 encounters you will have found a shiny Pokemon. It's chosen by each battle, not the overall battle amount. That's basically it... I believe any further information you get is false.

The information is quite obviously false for the very reason that your starters can be shiny.

Actually, encountering a shiny Pokemon can also depend on your location.
After leaving alternating cave, from the Hoenn series, the chance of finding a Shiny Pokemon like Magikarp is slightly boosted to 5/8193.

This is just a rumor...

Yes it's 1/8192. But, you're super lucky to get a shiny starter! Don't worry. You'll find one like I did. Stumbling around looking for something important when a shiny Pokemon appears. Just keep at the game, you might come across one

not that a shiny paras would have been any good...
i got my eevee from celadon as a shiny, god i had some luck :)
it seems more worthwilee when you get a shiny of a decent pokemon.
dont worry, youll find another shiny, and it will be better than a crappy paras

I once caught a shiny Tentacool. Nothing much to brag about, it's not really much special even though it's shiny. I hope that on some games later i see a shiny Latios. <3 :]

if there was other benefits other than a poke being shiny, it would be worthwhile trying to catch one. of course you can cheat as someone else said, which is what I do as well :P

1/8192 of finding one in the wild, or in eggs. If you want a shiny legendary soft reset after saving in front of it but you cant do that for traveling shinys so they are especially rare.

Here is a story:

Listen to this...I had finally made up my mind to catch a Shiny Rayquaza no matter what happened in my Emerald Version. Everyday when I had free time I would begin to soft reset my game (lets say about 500 times a day). After like 3 weeks a Shiny Rayquaza popped up. By now, I WAS SO USED TO SOFT RESETTING. Right when it appeared I pressed (start, select, A,B) and soft resetted without knowing what I just did. By NOW I WAS ABOUT TO THROW MY FREAKING D.S out the window...I couldn't stop staring at the D.S. Just out of my rage i restarted the game and I clicked on the Rayquaza again. AND WHAT YOU KNOW. Shiny Rayquaza AGAIN. O______O.

All Luck.....

My first shiny (besides the Red Gyarados of the Lake of Rage) was a shiny Exeggcute in Crystal, and it was pretty nasty looking (an ugly gray or something). I did catch it, of course. Since then, I have NEVER encountered another shiny in ANY other game.

The only random event shiny I've ever seen was a rattata, which really fumed me.

Hey, that was my first shiny, I had a hamster at the tim so I named it after him. RIP Rocky.

You can find shinies anywhere throughout the game no matter when you start. once I found my first shiny before I even delivered oaks parcel. It was a shiny pidgey and i couldnt catch it because I had no pokeballs. needless to say I flipped out =P
