Yes, it is possible. You have to restart your game over and over till you got a Shiny Pokemon starter. It is gonna take forever. Good luck with it. ^^

It's definetly possible, but I don't think it's worth your time. Shinies aren't any different than regular Pokemon except the color.

Not funny.

The necessary method of getting a shiny starter reminds me of constantly reloading one's save until they get the card they want in Metal Gear Acid... Do you want a shiny starter, or were you just curious?

Curse all of your eyes, you made me want to:



Start multiple instances of VBA
Have "Pause when inactive window" false on them all (I do anyway)
Load the Rom in each one
Hold down the speed button
Start a new game on each one, with minimal button presses
Enter my details, etc.
Pick my starter
Rinse and repeat until Shinydom.

See you all in 5 months.
