So I've been playing pokemon for a very long time, going back to gold version, continuing through ruby and now fire red (I'm too cheap to get the DS games). Until recently, I had never seen a shiny pokemon in my life. But as I was EV training for special attack, I saw a shiny gastly, which I caught. I soon after saw a shiny umbreon in the trainer tower, and just recently saw a shiny paras when ev training in mt. moon. Is this luck, or is there a possibility there is something else causing this?
