    Shinies appear randomly, the "odds" of it, are rare, numbers do not matter because it is all a matter of luck and chance. The numbers "1/8612" or w/e really say that for every 8612 pokemon, you will find one shiny. Just keep attentive to details. At the beginning of every shiny pokemon battle, including ones against other trainers, a line of stars will appear, do loop a on the pokemon, and fly off the screen in a line. The pokemon will also be slightly discolored, seperating them against other pokemon ,which is the only difference. I will edit my post with pictures of examples for differences in colors between pokemon norms and pokemon shinies. Shinies may appear anywhere that pokemon do. Including legendaries.

    Obvious differences:
    (Normal)(Shiny)
    (Normal)(Shiny)
    (Normal)(Shiny)

    Not so obvious differences:
    (Normal)(Shiny)
    (Normal)(Shiny)
    (Normal)(Shiny)

    Those are practically the differences of shinies though. You get a different colored pokemon and 'bragging' rights, if you have friends that like pokemon. Welcome to the Shiny Hunters Club. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Remember, there aren't stupid questions, just other people who think they are.

    You may see all shiny sprites from http://upc.pkmn.co.uk/pictures/sapphire/sapphire.html . All of my pictures are from there.

        Well, I wanna join the Shiny Hunters Club, but I haven't caught any shinies!
        I am constantly looking and looking and no dice

        Can I still join, though? Or do you have to catch a shiny to join?

          75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature.

            tentachu, you can certainly join, so long as you're gonna try to find shinies. *gives new member rep*
            and, danzo, pazzkat is correct with her paras'. how can you question somebody as awesome as her? *shakes head*

              Ryan, I'm questioning them myself, as I did when I posted them. The evolved Parasect for the normal has a darker shell tone while the shiny has a lighter shell tone. I also remember Paras having a darker shell tone, I'll check into it.

              Beat Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, 21 hours, 85% items 91% scans, replaying on hard mode, goal: 100% scans, 100% items, under 7 hours of play time.

              Edit!:
              Source from a different site, here's what a paras looks like, on the site.



              Edit!:
              I'll post the differences of the Paras and Parasect now, according to the two sites.

              Taken from http://upc.pkmn.co.uk/pictures/sapphire/sapphire.html

              Normal Paras and Parasect


              Shiny Paras and Parasect





              Taken from http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/frlgpokemonpicsshiny.html

              Shiny Paras and Parasect (No comparison with normal Paras and Parasect)



              ````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
              There's the pictures, if you need any help on how to post the pictures, feel free to PM me. I've also included some little pictures, be sure to click on Kiro (I'm pretty sure that's his name) as you will get to see a little loop of him munchin out.
              `````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
              Edit!:
              I just felt like I should inform you guys, that I now have over 5 hours of Metroid music. From Metroid to Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, I have most of the songs from the game, I can't think of any I do not have. It seems like no many people post here anymore, besides Ryan, SGM, the occasional new recruits and myself. Can anyone confirm if this is true? Going to bed now, chao.

                  Yeah, we except anyone as a member. rsgh5 is usualy the one to let you in, so he probably will next time he is on. In the meantime, have you caught any shinies yet?

                      I, as a higher posistion of Ryan, overrides his sentence on the bases if, and only if SGM continues his speldid work on the shiny dexes. Americans? I cannot tell you what I think of Americans, as it would force me to swear on P.C.

                          I live in the USA, but just pretend I live in .... Russia or somewhere.
                          Americans have a lot of stuff right at their fingertips. Walmart, for example.
                          We also have freedom of speech, religion, and what we can do around our nation.
                          We are also the "Melting Pot"... lots of all sorts of people from all over the world.
                          America is almost like a hybrid of the rest of the world... we have a lot of different characteristics. And most of us talk in English.

                                      dj_jammer506, surely you can join, Ryan, I'm thinking of taking a few members and making them 'my recruits'. Have an army following behind me, mwaha. Americans are:
                                      Lazy, fat, greedy, selfish, ignorant, controversial, rogue, and vile. Americans must have everything "their way", I forget what fast food restaraunt it is, but it's slogan now is "have it your way". Anyways, this is what I think of Americans.

                                      Edit: Welcome back Pokemunna, yes Tig, they are rather hard to catch, find actually.

                                        that's burger king, and what the crap do you need "recruits" for? i don't have an army or anything... your battle is with me. not with me and my people (cuz i don't even have people)
