Yes, I do have the shiny charm, definitely helps find them easily. I'll spend at minimum a week in one area and if nothing I'll go somewhere else, completely at random.

Some took longer than others to find. Mareep took only about 2 or 3 days. Audino took longer than expected, training by battling hundreds of them. I don't recall how long it took to find Gligar. I actually just found Tranquil last week within 2 or 3 days as well. I just moved my location looking to find either Poliwhirl or Politoed.

So I just caught a shiny Poliwhirl. WAT DO. or

I **** you not, today, one day after I caught the shiny Poliwhirl (which I picked Poliwrath btw) I caught a shiny Roselia. I was looking for not even a half hour when I found it. Even with the Shiny Charm I'm getting TOO lucky.

EDIT: 2 Days later, I caught a shiny Sandshrew.

So what ratio does the lucky charm cut down the chances of finding a Shiny too? i'm not very wise on finding shiny pokemon so what methods reduce the chance to its most accurate form in white and black 2?

Actually you have a 1 out of 8192 or a 0.012% chance. The Shiny Charm increases your chances to 1 in 2,730.6 or a 0.036% chance. You must have misread the information some where else. 1 in 1365.3 or a 0.073% chance is the Masuda Method. However using the Shiny Charm in conjunction with the Masuda Method results in a 1 in 1024 or a 0.097% chance of getting a Shiny.

Yeah, I did misread it, sorry. On serebii the way they worded its details confused me. http://www.serebii.net/itemdex/shinycharm.shtml

Man, took me nearly two weeks to get another shiny. Just got a shiny Liepard yesterday.

Shiny pokemon in the wild are extremely rare even if you manage to get the Shiny Charm from completing the pokedex. There's no 'real' way to find them in the wild other than to just look for long periods of time. It doesn't long every time, though. I was lucky enough to find a shiny within 15 minutes of looking. But what the person you quoted was talking about is a given shiny. Depending on what game you have, if you have White 2 you can go to the White Treehollow and eventually battle Benga who, if defeated, will give you a shiny Dratini. If you have Black 2 you go to Black Tower, defeat Benga and he'll give you a shiny Gible. If you complete the Unova Dex, you will also get a plane pass (from Juniper) to go find a shiny Haxorus.

I have been pokemon scene the original red and blue, (i know shiny pokemon were not introduced until silver and gold) . I have never seen a wild shiny pokemon. I know it's all random and the odds are very high. If anyone has any advice like amount of time i should spend in one area, it would be a huge help.

Just recently, myself and a friend of mine were trying to complete the 'Seen' section of the Regional Dex to gain access to the Nature Preserve, the place with the Shiny Haxorus. It didn't take too long, and I was pleased when I caught it.
After this, I decided to catch everything else that was in the area, while I was there. So I went for a surf, and came across this:

Just a plain ol' Red Basculin, right?

Wrong.

Apparently, this qualifies as a 'Shiny Pokémon', despite being merely a shade or two brighter.

I'm happy that I managed to come across a 'legit' shiny directly after being given one by the game, but I wish it were an Altaria or something else that appears in that area. :/ This is the only shiny I've found to date in White 2.

I have not caught any wild shinies or bred any in W2, but I did finally catch that shiny Haxorus in the Nature Reserve. And I got a great shiny Vulpix bred for me from someone today! It made me happy. I did also get a shiny Bagon from the GTS but not sure if it is legit so I haven't trained it yet.
I have had shiny experiences in SoulSilver though. I caught a shiny Manectric in the Safari Zone and accidentally ran from a shiny Rapidash. Also had a shiny Charmander traded to me.
And on Emerald I caught a shiny Trapinch who is now a shiny Flygon and is on SoulSilver.

On my Pokéballs only challenge for Black 2, I decided to be a bit more suicidal by catching every legendary, in a Pokéball, and shiny. Yeah. Of course, Zekrom wasn't shiny, and I don't think Kyurem can either. If Kyurem can, then I failed. But I got shiny Terrakion, Cobalion, and Virizion, along with a shiny Leavanny, Alomomola, and something else I'm not thinking of :/ Will copy over the save file and take screencaps later

I haven't caught any lately, but I haven't played much lately either. I don't hunt for them or anything - I just play the games and find them when I find them. I explore everything and train and evolve a lot of pokemon, so I fight a lot of battles through the course of a game, so I usually find at least one or two along the way.

So far in the fifth gen, I've caught a shiny Audino in Black and a shiny Swadloon (now a Leavanny) in Black 2. The Audino didn't surprise me much - I've fought so many of them that I was sure I'd run into at least one shiny along the way. The Swadloon was kind of cool though - it was entirely by chance, just making my way through Lostlorn Forest.

In Black 2, I have a shiny Tranquil. It's a really high level for its species (Level 46 I think), and it was caught ON THE FIRST TRY with a Quick Ball. If you don't use Quick Balls, you should. I captured many a Pokemon that way. It's not part of my team, as everything is tougher (Except the Heavy Metal Bronzong, which I am training and finding a use for its rare ability. Found in a Grotto!)

Kyurem can be shiny.

The only ones that cannot be shiny are Victini, Reshiram and Zekrom. The game was programmed in a way such that wild Victini, Reshiram and Zekrom can never be shiny.

I did come across my very first shiny Pokemon in Black 2! It was a Zubat in Castelia City's sewers. I was lucky to catch it before Hugh defeated it, but I was an idiot and forgot to transfer Zubat to my Black file and just deleted the B2 one. :c

I first saw a shiny Ditto, in Cerulean cave when I didn't know what it was, wondered why it was blue... Didn't catch it! Then I came across a shiny Duskull at route 121 and didn't catch it becaus I ran out, dare say I nearly cried. But I have now caught a shiny Duskull and sent it to white 2! It is now a Dusclops, permanent spot in my team. I also have a shiny Cobalion from soft resets. No I don't have a lucky charm, or have never used a shiny helping device.

Wow. It's interesting that some people get emotional over a missed shiny Pokemon.

Anyway, the first thing I'll say is I never found a shiny in my life. I'm at the moment focusing on getting a shiny Dratini, which is available at the White Treehollow.

At the Desert Resort Pokemon outbreak I thought I'd caught a shiny Hippowdon, which was gray instead of yellow, but didn't realize it was the female counterpart.

Just a question: Does any battle subway trainer (Waiters etc.) have shiny Pokemon? I don't know any so far.
