the chance is always 1/8126 or something close to that.
so there is no most common shiny.

It's Just Fufu

Actually, the probability is 1/8192, get it straight people! Where the heck are you getting these random probabilities?

I think he meant what is the shiny that most people have either seen or own. If so, I think it is either Zigzagoon or Poochyena

In three playthroughs I have only seen two shinies: a shiny Linoone which I caught, and a shiny Carvanha which I tried to catch but killed. --;

Because the probability of seeing a shiny is 1/8192, the most common shiny would also be the most common pokemon. If you think about it, if you see 8192 pokemon, and 2000 of them are Poochyena (for argument's sake) then your chances of finding a shiny Poochy are much higher than finding a shiny Skarmory, which you may only see 10 or 15 times out of the 8192.

I have only bumped into one shiny Pokemon, which was Tentacool, and that was over 2 years ago in Gold/Silver.

Never, in all my 7 years of obsessive pkmn gaming, have I ever seen a shiny. (NOT including red gyrados, obviously... jeez.) My friend had a shiny scizor, though. Besides red gyrados, the most common shiny would most probably be one of the more common wild pokemon.

In Silver, I encountered a shiny Drowzee. Batteries died when I caught it. Found a shiny Zigzagoon in Sapphire. Killed it. Found a shiny Aron as well. Someone saved a new game over mine. I've seen my three shinies, and they're gone. Lucky me...

If you think about it, if you see 8192 pokemon, and 2000 of them are Poochyena (for argument's sake) then your chances of finding a shiny Poochy are much higher than finding a shiny Skarmory, which you may only see 10 or 15 times out of the 8192.
Actually, the odds of Poochyena being shiny (0%) and Skarmory being shiny is 33.33% why is this? Skarmory lives in the route which Sandshrew and Spinda live in. And there won't be any Poochyena in sight guranteeing that Poochyena cannot be shiny in that area. Poochyena lives on various routes so the percents of seeing one shiny out of the other pokemon can vary. But I know that you just took them as examples. : )

And even if you see about 2000 Poochyenas, the odds out of 8192 are reset everytime.
