i haven't even seen a single shiny yet... but it doesn't matter to me too much.

It must hurt to see a shiny Pokemon run away or use pseduohaze on you...

I was fishing for feebas today and finally a shiny appeared before me...a nice greenish carvanha. It had a relaxed personality X_X but I'll still train the thing. So that brings my catching shiny total to 1.

Wow, you have a shiny Sceptile?! Let me guess, it's male. That is really neat, I have a fanfic that I'm making about a shiny Grovyle, and It's really nice to know some people actually have them. AND you have a shiny Salamence, those are about the rarest pokemon in that game. You are very lucky... :dead:

shiny RAYQUAZA here, took me a week orso to get, saving in front off him and restarting the game thousand times till I got one..:D I was so happy when I caught it..:D

AzureFlygon
September 25th, 2003, 11:44 AM
I had to restart almost a thousand times just to capture a regular rayquaza (I kept accidentally killing it) But I don't really like to have legendary shinies, because its too easy to get them if you just keep restarting. I like to find ones that are extreamly hard to get; like trapinch :shocked: (yes, I KNOW they aren't hard to find, but trying to find a shiny one definatly IS) Oh, yeah, I have a little fun fact here; all shinys are not male, though most of them are. My sister and I both have shiny females(Rhyhorn and Persian), but they seem to be easier to find in R/S than in G/S/C.

Does that mean you captured a shiny Carvanna? If I remember right, they're a greenish color, is that correct?

I've just broken the 100 hours mark on my Sapphire game, and not ONE shiny Pokemon has appeared. I've been in tons of wild pokemon battles, (only just won the Heat Badge), and am constantly wandering around to just level up my pokemon. It's frustrating!!

If only I could transfer in my shiny Nidoran female (the only one I ever caught). I caught her in the park north of Goldenrod in Crystal after only playing for between 20-21 hours of logged game time.

Ah well, maybe after another 100 hours....
My worst fear is running into one in the Safari Zone. It's so stupid.... if you can't run from a shiny, why should it be able to run from you? I hate the Safari Zone in general.....the absolute WORST aspect of R/B/Y, I was SOOO happy when G/S/C didn't have it.....and even more disappointed that R/S does.

I'm not too creative with nicknames, so I just stuck with Nidoran. :cool:
Congratulation on catching yours!! And Lavender is a cool nickname for it. What moves did you teach it?

So a shiny Rayquaza is black, huh? That's gotta be a kick-butt looking Pokemon.

Ah, I taught mine some of the best moves I could think of. It knows Thunderbolt, Poison Sting, Bite, and Return. I evolved it into a Nidorina, because a level 55 nidoran is pretty weak; can barely beat a level 40 rapidash...
Oh, well :P

I've never herd of anyone breeding for a shiny, but I'd like to think it's possible. Because, how else would you get certain shiny pokemon like the R/B/Y starters by breeding them in G/S/C? Unless when you transfer them they have a chance to be shiny....I don't know, just thought I'd throw that out there.

Frostweaver
October 15th, 2003, 04:57 PM
that i'm not so sure as i never cared about shiny (most of the time the shiny pokemon is even uglier than the normal one... x_x). In the past you definitely can breed shiny because being shiny depends upon IV. In Ru/Sa i don't think shiny is calculated by IV anymore (but i don't know how it's calculated...)

It has it's own random value, that it shares with gender and Unown shape. ^_^

There is no true way to get a shiny.It's pretty much random, and a matter of luck.

Uh, I think you only actually own about three of these... you only have the colors for the Oddish, Tentacruel, and Alteria correct. The shining Pika I'm not qite sure, it's colors could be interpreted like that... A Groudon is bright gold, a Gardivoir is sky blue with a red horn, a sceptile is sky blue with red seeds and yellow stripes, a Torchic has a yellow body with red wings, and a Kyogre is purple with red stripes. A swampert is light purple with yellow, but it could be interpreted as pink, so I'll give you that one. Also, you may have just got the parentheses mixed up, cause some of the colors you have a rigt for a different Pokemon, but I don't know how that could happen.

So, if it's all random, can you catch 2 shinies of the same species, just by walking around having a lot of luck?

DragonTrainer
October 25th, 2003, 04:58 AM
Exactly right.If you have the time, you can just walk around grass until you find a shiny.A semi-easy shiny to get is the starter, and kyogre/groudon and rayquaza.Just save before you meet them, and if the'yre not shiny, reload the game.Also, if you find the feebas spot, you can fish at that place until you eventually run into a shiny feebas.

Well there is two ways to get a shiny, you can trade with some one that has one or you can run into one in the wild. Them is the only two ways to get a shiny pokemon.

Kairi
November 4th, 2003, 07:02 AM
In reality, any Pokmon you hatch, catch, or otherwise obtain may be alternate color. It's random based on it's gender value. Alternate color Pokmon may be either gender however.

How do you get a shiny Rayquaza? Is it real???

It took me a LONG while to get. Just save infront of rayquaza before you start fighting it. When it appears and is the usual green color, juts hit A,B,start and select the same time and the game will restart. Then try again. Keep doing this until you meet a black shiny rayquaza. ;)
But I have to say that you really have to have some guts to get it. It took me about 250 restartings and nearly 20 hours before it was shiny. I really recomend capturing it in a master ball (like I did). If it faints you'll have to start all over again. :\

Let me establish this,it's possible to have any kind of shiney Pokmon! All Pokmon have a shiney palette stored in the ROM, thus making it possible to have shiney Pokmon. But the chances are very slim... Oh let's just say 1/3658! LOL *pets his shiney PIKACHU!*

Frostweaver
November 18th, 2003, 04:32 PM
please don't double post... you can edit your old post and ask the question.

currently there are no gurantee shiny pokemon given through E-cards. In fact there are no pokemon given through E-cards at the moment, only items, berries and new opponents.

i forgot the percentage of meeting a shiny pokemon now... but isn't it something close to 1/400 (0.25% roughly) or something? i'll go see if i can find the number again...

Um, try one in 6125 if I remember exactly, but it's approximately 1/6000 in either case. I have over 150 hours in Ruby now and have still not encountered a single shiny Pokemon. Yet in 130 hours of playing Silver, I caught 5 (including the shiny Gyarados you get in every game). So whoever was saying the chances are better in R/S than in G/S/C I think is prolly a bit mistaken... At any rate, 1/400 is DEFINITELY not it, because I'd battled easily upwards of a few thousand Pokemon in my game and never encountered a Shiny yet.

However, none of this information on shiny Pokemon has been validated ANYWHERE to me so far. I just see people posting numbers, whatever probability they may think it is. I also see some people trying to make elaborate comments about it being tied to the randomness of gender, stats, IV (a mystical, magical, unproven number in itself), etc. But no one can quantify this or prove it's validity because none of them can cite clear and believable sources for their information. I believe the 1/6125 estimate because it sounds about right and about reasonable, not because anyone's proven it to me or has seemed like a more or less credible source.

I would still like to know the chances of seeing Mirage Island and the chances of getting a Shiny, and GameShark codes for both. ;) Of course, if it were easy to get Shiny Pokemon, they wouldn't be so special. So who knows... It's just a source of much frustration for many of us, and I assume it always will be.

I ran into my shiny looking for feebas. It was a tentacool. at first i thought my game had a glitch when sparkles came form him, cause at first I saw no difference. NOw I evolved him and I named him Shadow. Wanna know why? His red glubules on his head are black! That is so cool! :D also in response to what Mightyena37 said, in my crystal version I have a Pink Butterfree, a green eared Cleffa I got from the daycare lady, and my red gyarados. I was running into them all over th place!

I have a shiny tentacruel too! But he's in my gold game... It does seem that you find more shiny pokemon in the crystal game than in every other version, because I have seven that I found naturally in that one.

Oh, just for the record, having a Gameshark to get shinies DOES take the fun out of having them. I only use mine to get unobtainables now.

Yeah, finding a shiny pokemon is completely a matter of luck.On my Ruby cartridge, I only have two: a Pelliper that I caught as a wingull, and a Camerupt that I caught as a Numel in my Sapphire Cartridge and traded over. In my Crystal cartridge, I have some shiny Hoothoot and Noctowl that I duplicated in my silver game, a female nidoran, and a shiny raticate.

While trying to get my shiny Rayquaza I must have restarted my game atleast over 200 times... more. It's still working fine. I don't thing your game can be broken that easily. And if your worried about the power button fallign of or something just push start/select/A/B at the same time to restart your game easily.

colored pokemon = shiny Pokemon...

The pokemon are just alternate color so technically it's just a colored Pokemon... but the traditions from GSC, of how the pokemon will flash in a shiny light first before battle, has been carried over to RS and we call it "shiny pokemon" because of the "shiny glow that exist no more."

By Lady Luck's wish, we get a shiny Pokemon... it's all down to luck. If you just captured a shiny Pokemon one day and if you're 18+, go buy a lottery ticket immediately.

I've just broken the 100 hours mark on my Sapphire game, and not ONE shiny Pokemon has appeared. I've been in tons of wild pokemon battles, (only just won the Heat Badge), and am constantly wandering around to just level up my pokemon. It's frustrating!!

If only I could transfer in my shiny Nidoran female (the only one I ever caught). I caught her in the park north of Goldenrod in Crystal after only playing for between 20-21 hours of logged game time.

Ah well, maybe after another 100 hours....
My worst fear is running into one in the Safari Zone. It's so stupid.... if you can't run from a shiny, why should it be able to run from you? I hate the Safari Zone in general.....the absolute WORST aspect of R/B/Y, I was SOOO happy when G/S/C didn't have it.....and even more disappointed that R/S does.

I got a shiny electrike,plusle,girafarig,swblu,latios,seviper,marill,whismur,wurmple,latios,and a shiny magikarp

The first one that I caught had a Rash nature and I evolved it into a Shiny Linoone and the seconed Shiny Zigzagoon has a Lax nature.

I want to catch a Shiny Poochyena really bad and I plan on hatching it.

It doesn't help finding a shiny at all... Wild Pokemon are set at a set ratio... regardless of you using white flute, sweet scent or just walking, "this pokemon" will appear with a x% of chances in "this area". Shiny works the same way... by just applying the shiny encounter rate on top of it.

Wait a sec...in R/S, do you mean they don't "shine" when they appear, and that they're just a different color? Or do they still sparkle when they appear?

Also a question that was asked earlier by someone else but I didn't see an answer for: I know any random Pokemon can be alternately colored, but is a hatched Pokemon also carry th same chance to be shiny?

In my Ruby game I have a shiny Rayquaza (16 tries), shiny Groudon (74 tries), shiny Seviper (luck), shiny Absol (luck) and shiny Zigzagoon (luck). I was very happy when I caught shiny Rayquaza, he's my favorite Pokemon ^o^.
Once I was training my Pikachu (Route 104), when he finally reached the level 9 I went to the PokeCenter in Petalburg and guess what? The little rat got the PokeRus... I was like... O.O!!! I still have this Pikachu with a little black dot near his level, I never evolved him ^-^.

Edit: Changed Sapphire to Ruby, I have both versions but the shinies are in the Ruby.

Yes, but the chance is very small. It could take forever. I did that once, but I gave up after getting board. I'm doing that with an invisible Kecleon right now! ^_^ I'm sure that it'll never show up as a shiny though. Of course, anything can happen.

January 15th, 2004, 04:06 PM
Do shiny Pokemon still "shine" when they appear in R/S, or are they just a different color? I was always looking for the shine, so I hope I didn't miss any!

January 16th, 2004, 09:12 PM
They didn't shine for me and I don't think they shine for anyone. I remember someone at the pojo board saying they caught a Lunatone whith a blue eye and didn't know it was different until he saw the pokedex.

They do shine, but it's really had to see because they muted the colors. The stars are brownish and swirl in a quick DNA pattern that's almost impossable to see if you're not paying attention. Discouraging, really...

Yesterday, when i reached 102 hours of playing Ruby, I ran into and successfully captured my first shiny pokemon. I caught a Barboach. Instead of its head an fins being blue, it was gold. He was at level 28 and i was fishing using a super rod at route 114. About 23 minutes later, he evolved in a Whiscash. His colour is just darker than a normal Whiscash.

I want a shiny chikorita....but that means i have to wait for FR/LG

I don't have them too often, but the last shiny I found I knew it would be a shiny before it even showed up on the screen. And I actually knew, too, I didn't just want it to be one. It was creepy. No, I didn't have a gameshark in, if that's what your thinking ;)

I have 192 hours and I spent all day yesterday looking for a shiny anything... I didn't find one.
Instead, I got the PokeRus 0_o;
Ah, well... Knew it was going to happen eventually...

But I wish I had known you could catch a shiny Rayquaza or Kyogre before I caught it! Darn. And I really get bored chasing Latias around, so I'll probably never get a shiny legendary... the first time I saw it was RIGHT after I beat the League. I was like, :confused: !! And I haven't seen it since. Well, maybe once or twice.
Maybe I'll go to the Southern Island and find Latios. Oh, wait, I don't have an E-Reader! AAARGH!
(Currently looking for a shiny Pikachu... :sleeping: Good luck.)

Also I had a dream that I caught a shiny Bellsprout last night... it was blue. Kind of wierd... :shocked: Could that mean something!?

I was in the Safari Zone for 6 hours looking for a shiny Pikachu! And then I decided to catch a couple (since they're relatively rare, y'know...). It wasn't until I left and I checked my box that I realized that I had caught 20 of them ^_^;
Now I have a whole box stuffed full of Pikachu, and not one is shiny either :( ...

Oh, yeah, and can you get a shiny from hatching if you restart and keep hatching it over and over again?

I want to evolve it, but I want all it's forms as being shiny, but the duplication code isn't in r/s. Should I raise it? And with what form and attacks?

Btw, right now I'm searching for a 2nd shiny Pokemon with no luck, of course...

I encountered one before in Victory Road too, but I don't see what's so special about it. I have all the codes to Catch Any Pokmon in R/S for GameShark SP. I don't have any shiny codes though. I have the pics for all the shinys on a Word Document. I like Shiny's & all but they don't look as good as the Shiny's in G/S/C versions.

FINALLY!!!

After 236 hours of logged game time, I've finally encountered and captured a shiny pokemon!

I was just surfing through Route 124 when I noticed my Staryu only needed about 200XP to go up a level. So I just tossed in my Super Rod to fish up a battle, and lo and behold, a light blue Wailmer made its shiny appearance!! I used Staryu's Swift attack to weaken it about halfway, used up two regular pokeballs with no success, then lobbed a Net Ball, which successfully caught the level 35 Wailmer. Wailmer has decent stats and they have excellent HP, so I'm going to train it to be my main Pokemon in tournament battle. Just in time for Pokemon Colosseum, too!!

I am SO thrilled I finally caught one!
