    I think I did hear that mentioned somewhere, but it wasn't in detail so I didn't really know what it was. Thanks, man, that's some cool stuff.

    True, as I am unaware as to what the RNG method is.
    Really? I thought this would have gotten around by now. In short, shinies aren't random like we used to think but, rather, are governed by some algorithm that, like the damage formula and individual values, was cracked by a math guru somewhere. If you have your secret ID (SID...need to have a random, non-hatched shiny or pokesav/AR), a program can calculate where shinies appear. There's no cheating involved. It does, however, take patience. For more information, I think you wanna Google "DPPt PRNG Research"'s a thread at Smogon.
