    I havent seen it personally but I heard there is a chance (the same odds as finding one wild) that a trainer will have a shiny pokemon.

    I think the shininess of trainer Pokmon is predetermined. I think no trainer has them in normal play because they're supposed to be more of an easter egg.

    I'm contemplating looking for a shiny Dratini at the Game Corner. Any recommendations on a no-egg-move moveset? Special'nite perhaps?

      Good luck! *Shoots the thumbs up* I've tried with that one before, but to no avail. I hope you get it! Gold Groudon are soooo cool-looking! Almost as cool as that black Rayquaza! *Droolz*

      I'm no good with movesets, but good luck on that Dratini! I tried for a shiny abra once. I bought so many of the darn things over and over again! >_< Never got one. I dunno if it would work or not, but since the stats were different every time, my guess is you have the same odds. I'd just save up as many coins as you can and buy a bunch of them, until you run out of coins. If you don't get any shinies, restart and try again. Of course, that's probably what you have in mind anyway, isn't it?

      I'm thinking I'd go in with 5 free slots, then try for a bunch. I'm also thinking that the subpunch/boltbeam set could work fine. I've got the TM & tutor both ready.

      Maybe I'll try for something with that Delibird, first...

      Shuko,
      Oh how frustrating that must have been for you! I don't think the shiny poochyena is the prettiest shiny but I would hate to see it and not be able to catch it! I am in the process of doing the same thing you are doing.(trying to get a shiny starter in Sapphire) I had been wondering if that could happen, now I dread the possibility. Lately I have even gotten paranoid with my gameplay. I used to take my time leveling up and getting to the first battle with my rival, but now when I start the game I rush through it so that I have pokeballs sooner. (I start my games over quite often.) I wish you much luck in your quest to find a shiny starter. I also hope that one day soon when you least expect it, you find and catch a shiny Ralts.
      Kim

        This is correct. All trainer's pokemon have predetermined dvs, and (with the exception of those three shiny trainer pokemon) will never be shiny. The battle tower pokemon are generated just as you see them, so you can see shinies there. The first Poocheyna, and Wallys Raltz can be shiny also.

        Oh, btw, the three shiny pokemon I mentioned are in the Trainer Tower in FR/LG. Meowth, Seaking, and Espeon.

                          Typical, I go home and start breeding them again, while shiny hunting near Lanette's House in Sapphire, and the second one I hatch is female, and the third! Now I can make my McSceptile!

                              I don't think we should count Metal gen shinies, since the mechanic is different and it's possible (and legit) to breed and such. In G/C, I have a Red Gyarados (*3), a Blue Ditto, and an Autumn Leaves Meganium. I was breeding for a skarm, but got bored of it.

                                ya... we kinda decided against metal gen pokemon because they can be cloned and breeding makes things super easy... but it's not really official. we prefer gba pokemon. i've decided to run around the power plant and try to find any shinies that i can get my shiny snabbing hands on because i don't think we have any from there... (lemme check) whoa... wait... we have all power plant pokemon??? ga... who caught an electabuzz?!

                                Just be careful of EXPLODING SHINY VOLTORBS! A flash of blue doom...
                                It'd make for a good reset opportunity if there are any you haven't talked to, yet.
