Yeah, it's just like in GSC like Teara. And I'm very thankful it does that because I almost missed catching a shiny Dusclops last week because I was sitting in a dimly lit bus and I wouldn't have noticed the screen if it hadn't flashed and sparkled. XD

Thats why in Ruby/Sapphire the screen doesnt flash. Its like one normal pokemon... no flashs. But in the stats, there are the 3-stars.

Gee...you people are lucky. All throughout GS and RS I've never seen a shiny pokemon. I might never. :(

this was a good question,so good that no body could answer. why should it be sooooo hard to find an alternate color pokemon, i mean if u go into the grass a shiny pokemon stands out from all the rest, i mean a shiny pkmn is just like an albino animal. :P

(make-up)i think wat they should of done is that sometimes(1%/100%chance)there would be 3 little stars that would appear in the grass/cave/water u are in and will run away.it will be just a bit slower than your running shoes, just run after it and you'll run into a shiny pokemon(you also wont run into any other wild pokemon while these stars appear)but still its not eassy since as i noted above theres only a 1 out of 100 percent chance of this happening(end of make-up)

i hope theres a better chance in fr/lg.

Well I heard from gamefaqs.com on one of the FAQs for this game that its a 1 in 65536 chance of finding a shiny pokemon, and going off topic 3 out of 65536 to find a pokemon with Pokerus, I have found a Pokemon with Pokerus, but not a shiny yet. what I have noticed is the odds are 1 out of 65536 and 65536 is the last number slot in Microsoft Excel if I'm correct which probably doesnt mean anything but it might.

I caught a light yellowish cascoon and evolved it.Dustox looks different, it has redish wings and can anyone tell me if it is a shiny.And I've only been playing for 101:41 when I caught it.

All You Need To Know About Shinys Is NEVER GO LOOK FOR THEM.They Will Come To You. And A Star Appears And Cicrcles The Poke That Is Shiny.

yea but the stars are barly noticable. some shinys can stand out from the normal(cacnea) so u dont need to c stars to know wat it is. some shinys barely look different(linoone) and so u need a web site with a shiny list, so u may quickly c the difference and capture it.

http://upc.pkmn.co.uk/pictures/sapphire/sapphire.html
it takes long to load but its worth it, ur gonna thank me later=D
just open this site wen u run into an unoticable shiny and capture it.
NOTE:delibird and ryhorn might not appear

Just keep training in the same areas and you'll eventually come across one. My recent shiny capture was a golden swablu.

i caught a shiny magicarp.the only pokemon i wouldn't train was MY SHINY!!!! it was at level 4. is there only 1 shiny in a game?

Simon

There's an umlimited number of shinys in the game. You just need luck. It's like 1 out of 8725 chance of finding a shiny whenever you battle a wild pokemon. Or as awkwardsilence says..a 1 out of 60 thousand something chance.

It should be noted that in RS (not sure about GSC) starters and legendaries have a higher chance of being shiney. One in around 350, as I recall. Not sure on the exact number, but it's a much lower ratio.

Why do they make it so hard to find one?!! :disappoin

Simon
May 23rd, 2004, 12:25 PM
That's cause they just stand there and don't run around (with the exception of the Latis and dogs). I just kept reseting until I got my black Rayquaza, which didn't take long cause it was shiny on thr 6th or 8th try. It's also one of my only 2 shinys. The other one is a Salamence which is green I think.

*sniffle sniffle* i want a shiney anything. I'm despret. it's true though; if you go searching for a shiny, you'll never find one. I tried. I came across Latias twice though! (THAT was unexpected!) I'd settle for a shiney anything. I was trying for a Wingull. But I'd huv settled for a Shiney Tentacool. ANYTHIIIIING!
*Whine, cry, and complain!* Send dr.phil this way please...
...wait a minute. Is shiny in GSC to? I may have one! YAY! But i must find my silver cartridge first u.u
