If anyone has caught a shiny yet within their game can you list What the Pokémon was and It's level here. And any other additional information like Where found.

This excludes Red Gyarados.

*I FOUND A SHINY GYARADOS IN THE LAKE OF RAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!*


In all seriousness, I found a shiny Tentacool in the water on the way to Cianwood City. Thinking it was a trainer, I killed it.

A shiny Ratticate, but I killed it because it's ugly wretched, horrid face seems to trigger a kill response from me.

I've never ran into one. How rare are they exactly?

Also, are they all discolored like Gyarados, or do they just sparkle when you meet em?

Not sparkly but I ran into Raikou about 10 minutes after making the legendary dogs run away. He escaped.

I found a shiny red Magikarp.

Ignoring the blatant joke ripoff, not really. IIRC, the encounter rate for a shiny is, like, 1 in some overly ridiculous number in the thousands.

The chances are 1 in 8,192, unless you use the Mesuda Method, in which case it'll be 1 in 2,048.

Just to note, I've still not run into a single Shiny in all of my games.

I've always wanted a Shiny Heracross but I've never come across one unfortunately.

lol, I'd happily trade you... but that FireRed save game is long gone - that Heracross was caught before the Pal Park even existed.


I never even used it... mainly because it was pink... personally, I think it could use a different shiny base colour... but, meh, life goes on...

None in this game yet, but I found a shiny Carvanha in Sapphire and a shiny Buizel in Platinum.
