It's a random number between 0 and 8191. For each Pokémon you see, another random number is drawn. If the two match, you have a shiny. (This isn't a very accurate description, but it's enough for the statistics. I'm fed up with people not understanding things when I explain it correctly.)
    good....finally i understand now, but is there any way to find tou your shiny ID number and the pokemon's random number?
