I have read many threads asking about shiny shadow pokemon and so I decided to give coronis my idea via PM, he said I could post the thread and he would sticky it.... I Don't have much information at the moment but I have PMed people who have snagged shinies Questions and I will update with their answers if the deside to answer....

this information was collected from loads of posters in the shiny snag threads and members who have snagged shinies:


General
Shiny Pokemon, just like in the Gameboy games are very rare and some are even pretty, the chances to find one is 1 in 8192, that dosent mean after 8191 battles the next pokemon will be shiny, because every battle has a 1 in 8192 chance of being a shiny pokemon.
Your shinies may look pretty in the GBA games but when you put them onto colosseum or XD they will look different:

shiny Pokemon that are completely different colours then the 'normal' ones are noticable, like Dragonite is dark green instead of yellow, very noticable! Unlike Smeargle, who looks like the normal smeargle should look in the GBA games




Identifying a Shadow shiny
Firstly when they are sent out two orange orbs will fly around them, not stars, as a shadow the shiny may be visable when you place it into the PC
The pokemon may a different colour, my flygon was manky yellow instead of green and green instead of blue, not a pretty sight.



Shadow Lugia
The Shadow Lugia, very cool in colour but loads of people have been wondering what will it look like if it is shiny. Well I have come up with the conclusion that the Shadow Lugia will look normal in appearance until it is purified, then you will see the differenct in colour


Smeargle
Smeargle is one of the biggest problems for shinies in colosseum and XD.
In colosseum no matter what the smeargle with have a red tail, like the shiny form in the Game boy advance games, this is due to the fact that colosseum uses the same 'models' that the stadium games use. Smeargle has a green tail in colosseum and XD, if it is shiny it is a dark manky green tail

Unconfirmed information
this is for Information I have discovered but Do not know if it is true
the orbs on shiny shadows only appear the first time you send them out

Latest Update:
Picture of Shiny Smeargle (http://*******.com/view/?pic=dpjvr5)
credit to ******* for hosting and credit to my friend for letting me take a picture of his Smeargle



FAQ:

Q: are shadow pokemon available in XD?
A: if not then why make this thread?

Special thanks:
ssw for the information about the PC
my freind for letting me use his smeargle as a 'model'
Coronis for allowing me to post this thread and for stickying it
My mum for buying the camera which I used
Me for being so helpful

sorry for the poor quality but I use a cheap camera

16th September 2005, 5:50 PM
So there really isn't much of a difference between shiny shadow Pokemon and normal Pokemon. That's gonna make it hard to identify them. Anyways, thank you for the heads up on Smeargle.

Kakashi-Sharingan Warrior
16th September 2005, 5:52 PM
no problem

just make sure your lucky enough that the the shiny shadow is one of a completely different colour like Dragonite, Shellder, Pineco etc

since it did fall into the same catagory I put it there, but I will make a new section with it in.

I have made a new paragraph about it and one about shadow Lugia

as well as special thanks

I don't think so, since the graphic motor is the same as colosseum (the pokemon, ect...)

very good point, and simce hardly anyone would snag a shiny it is hard to keep it alive

Tommo_Volbeat
1st October 2005, 8:51 AM
true, but anyone with colloseum and a shiny could transfer it over and take a digital pic of it

you listening out there anyone?

maybe you should advertise this post and say something similar to what i said in my first paragraph

pokemon can appear in shiny form, why not when they are shadow too?

Can somebody show me a shiny shadow Pokemon no, not currently, shinies are hard to get

PKMNMaster
2nd October 2005, 4:52 AM
Its nothing, I assume you could get a Shiny Pokemon but you would need to purify them first before you can see them as a Shiny because I've never, ever seen a shiny on Colosseum before.

Animorph
2nd October 2005, 4:54 AM
Well PKMNMaster, It's kinda hard, considering there are only 52 pokemon in the game*Shadows, Plusle, your Starters and Ho-Oh* However, this might be a great oppertunity. After all, 98 obtainable pokemon. Life is sweet

Tommo_Volbeat
3rd October 2005, 1:32 PM
98? oh yeah, if you count pokespot, then you could actually hunt for shinies

Its nothing, I assume you could get a Shiny Pokemon but you would need to purify them first before you can see them as a Shiny because I've never, ever seen a shiny on Colosseum before.

The only shadow Pokémon that would hide it's shininess until purification is Lugia. Others will appear shiny, purified or not.

No, it shows you wether or not you looked at them. The white names are the pokemon whose data you looked at, while the gold names are the ones you didn't. Anyway, I have to go on a purify fest if I want to see if I have a shiny on XD.

9th October 2005, 10:28 PM
I didn't get a shiny shadow, but my Spot Reactor went off at the Cave PokéSpot, I went there and I saw a Green Zubat, I'm like "Whoa, its darker in here than it was before" When I got into the battle I saw that it wasnt dark, it was a shiny =O I threw an Ultra Ball at it, and I caught it 8D

with the amount of shinies people are getting, you would think that the shiny rate went up so that you could get more.

NOTICE to all that are new to the forums!

This thread is NOT for asking about avatars, sigs, Trainer Cards, or how to make friends! Please go to the Newbie section for that:

http://www.serebiiforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=8

That is all.

This thread is for discussing shiny Pokemon in R/S/E: Any questions you have about them that aren’t answered in the FAQ, plus what shinies you own or want to own.

I’m going to let you all continue to discuss shiny Pokemon you’re trying to get, but please, for the love of God don’t spam. Unfortunately, if I see too many more spam posts of this nature:

“Hatched 5 Charmander Eggs, no shiny yet.”

“10 more Eggs, still waiting for my shiny Charmander.”

etc etc, I will have to change the rules to discussion on shiny Pokemon owned ONLY. Please be considerate of my sanity. :) Updates every day of how many times you’ve soft-reset or how many Eggs you’ve hatched just isn’t fun for me. One post per shiny wanted per person, please.

Don’t post about all the shinies you’ve gotten through cheating. No one cares.

And without further ado:

SHINY POKEMON FAQ

The main site’s SHINY PAGE (http://www.serebii.net/games/shiny.shtml)

1. Q: Shiny Pokemon? What are those?
A: Shiny Pokemon first appeared in the Gold and Silver games for the Gameboy Color. Basically, they are alternately colored Pokemon (for example, shiny Charizard is black instead of orange).

2. Q: Wow! Are shiny Pokemon more powerful?
A: Unfortunately, no. The ONLY difference between shinies and regular Pokemon is the color. They’re pretty much just for bragging rights.

3: Q: How can I find a shiny Pokemon?
A: Every Pokemon that you see in the wild, hatch from an Egg, get from an event (such as your starter, Beldum, etc) has the same chance of being shiny: 1/8,192. These are pretty high odds, so you need to be very lucky to come across one. There’s no place that they’re more common, and no surefire way to find one. You just need luck.

4: Q: But I’ve seen over 10,000 Pokemon in my game and haven’t found a shiny yet! That can’t be right!
A: 1/8,192 is a probability. That doesn’t mean that after 8,192 Pokemon, you will automatically find a shiny.
A good example of this is when you roll dice. You have a 1/6 chance of getting any particular number when you roll, such as the number 2. That doesn’t mean that you will roll a 2 in six rolls, or that your second roll will be a 2, etc.
The same goes for shiny Pokemon. You may find a shiny on your first try, or within a hundred tries, or maybe not until 10,000 tries.
To delve in a bit deeper, picture that whenever you encounter a Pokemon, a random number between 1 and 8,192 is generated. Let’s say that the number 500 is the “shiny number.” If 500 happens to be the random number that’s generated, the Pokemon will be shiny. If the number is anything else, it will be a normal Pokemon. Nice odds, aren’t they?

5: Q: If I breed a shiny Pokemon, will the baby from the Egg be shiny as well?
A: Unlike in G/S/C, where you had a higher chance of hatching shiny offspring when the parents were shiny, this is NOT true for any of the 3rd generation games. Every Pokemon has the same odds of being shiny, no matter what.

6: Q: What is this “soft resetting” thing I’ve been hearing about?
A: Soft resetting is when you press Start + Select + A + B to reset your gameboy (just like turning the system off and on). It’s helpful when trying to find a shiny of a Pokemon you can save in front of, such as your starter at the beginning, legendaries like the Regis and Rayquaza, etc. Save, soft-reset, see if the Pokemon is shiny, if not turn off your game and try again. Just like finding any shiny, this depends completely on luck, but if you’re patient you should eventually get your shiny. Keep in mind that this could take hours or days with luck, and months and months without.

7: Q: What does a shiny _____ look like?
A: The Pokedex on the main site shows sprites of every Pokemon:

http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-rs/

Just look up the one you want.

8: Q: How do I know if I have a shiny Pokemon?
A: Besides the change in color, a shiny Pokemon will sparkle when it comes into battle. There are also a couple changes on its summary page, which you can see on the main site’s shiny page (link above).

9. Q: When will I know if I’ve gotten a shiny starter?
A: When you’re choosing your starter, the game will show you a picture of each Pokemon. This picture will NOT show you whether that Pokemon is shiny or not. You will have to choose it and check its summary, or use it in battle, to find out if it’s shiny or not.

10. Q: Can I save before hatching my Egg, and reset until I have a shiny?
A: No. Unfortunately, everything about the Egg is set when you receive it, so you'll end up with the same Pokemon every time if you use this method. You can, however, save before you take the Egg from the Daycare man, hatch it, and reset until you have a shiny.

11. Q: If my shiny Pokemon evolves, will it stay shiny?
A: Yes. Shininess isn't something that changes.

12. Q: Do shiny Ditto transform into shiny versions of the opponent's Pokemon?
A: Yes.

If any more questions are asked multiple times, I’ll add them to the FAQ.

“Hatched 5 Charmander Eggs, no shiny yet.”

“10 more Eggs, still waiting for my shiny Charmander.”

etc etc, I will have to change the rules to discussion on shiny Pokemon owned ONLY. Please be considerate of my sanity. :) Updates every day of how many times you’ve soft-reset or how many Eggs you’ve hatched just isn’t fun for me. One post per shiny wanted per person, please.

Don’t post about all the shinies you’ve gotten through cheating. No one cares.

And without further ado:

SHINY POKEMON FAQ

The main site’s SHINY PAGE (http://www.serebii.net/games/shiny.shtml)

1. Q: Shiny Pokemon? What are those?
A: Shiny Pokemon first appeared in the Gold and Silver games for the Gameboy Color. Basically, they are alternately colored Pokemon (for example, shiny Charizard is black instead of orange).

2. Q: Wow! Are shiny Pokemon more powerful?
A: Unfortunately, no. The ONLY difference between shinies and regular Pokemon is the color. They’re pretty much just for bragging rights.

3: Q: How can I find a shiny Pokemon?
A: Every Pokemon that you see in the wild, hatch from an Egg, get from an event (such as your starter, Eevee, etc) has the same chance of being shiny: 1/8,192. These are pretty high odds, so you need to be very lucky to come across one. There’s no place that they’re more common, and no surefire way to find one. You just need luck.

4: Q: But I’ve seen over 10,000 Pokemon in my game and haven’t found a shiny yet! That can’t be right!
A: 1/8,192 is a probability. That doesn’t mean that after 8,192 Pokemon, you will automatically find a shiny.
A good example of this is when you roll dice. You have a 1/6 chance of getting any particular number when you roll, such as the number 2. That doesn’t mean that you will roll a 2 in six rolls, or that your second roll will be a 2, etc.
The same goes for shiny Pokemon. You may find a shiny on your first try, or within a hundred tries, or maybe not until 10,000 tries.
To delve in a bit deeper, picture that whenever you encounter a Pokemon, a random number between 1 and 8,192 is generated. Let’s say that the number 500 is the “shiny number.” If 500 happens to be the random number that’s generated, the Pokemon will be shiny. If the number is anything else, it will be a normal Pokemon. Nice odds, aren’t they?

5: Q: If I breed a shiny Pokemon, will the baby from the Egg be shiny as well?
A: Unlike in G/S/C, where you had a higher chance of hatching shiny offspring when the parents were shiny, this is NOT true for any of the 3rd generation games. Every Pokemon has the same odds of being shiny, no matter what.

6: Q: What is this “soft resetting” thing I’ve been hearing about?
A: Soft resetting is when you press Start + Select + A + B to reset your gameboy (just like turning the system off and on). It’s helpful when trying to find a shiny of a Pokemon you can save in front of, such as your starter at the beginning, legendaries like Articuno and Snorlax, etc. Save, soft-reset, see if the Pokemon is shiny, if not turn off your game and try again. Just like finding any shiny, this depends completely on luck, but if you’re patient you should eventually get your shiny. Keep in mind that this could take hours or days with luck, and months and months without.

7: Q: What does a shiny _____ look like?
A: The Pokedex on the main site shows sprites of every Pokemon:

http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-rs/

Just look up the one you want.

8: Q: How do I know if I have a shiny Pokemon?
A: Besides the change in color, a shiny Pokemon will sparkle when it comes into battle. There are also a couple changes on its summary page, which you can see on the main site’s shiny page (link above).

9. Q: When will I know if I’ve gotten a shiny starter?
A: When you’re choosing your starter, the game will show you a picture of each Pokemon. This picture will NOT show you whether that Pokemon is shiny or not. You will have to choose it and check its summary, or use it in battle, to find out if it’s shiny or not.

10. Q: Can I save before hatching my Egg, and reset until I have a shiny?
A: No. Unfortunately, everything about the Egg is set when you receive it, so you'll end up with the same Pokemon every time if you use this method. You can, however, save before you take the Egg from the Daycare man, hatch it, and reset until you have a shiny.

11. Q: If my shiny Pokemon evolves, will it stay shiny?
A: Yes. Shininess isn't something that changes.

12. Q: Do shiny Ditto transform into shiny versions of the opponent's Pokemon?
A: Yes.

If any more questions are asked multiple times, I’ll add them to the FAQ.

I am currently writting a more in-debt shiny Faq, but no-where as in-detail as this baby. I was going to write it and submit it to Game Faqs. They don't seem to have one.

One thing I have to say: ITS ALL DOWN TO LUCK! I have one shiny I have caught, the rest are traded from friends/aqatences. You could have no shinys, you could have ten. Thier is no code, or anything to get one. Its just PURE Luck and DON'T let anyone tell you otherwise. Also, don't ***** about how you don't have one. Frankly, having one does not effect your game in anyway, shape or form. They just look cool, and are rare.

Anyways, I have 3 shinys. A Magnetric(Which is rather Crappy, unfortaniltly.), evolved from a shiny Elektrike. I caught about 7 hours on Ruby.
I have a shiny Pelieper, evolved from Wingull, that I got off my Neighbour. Havent checked it propally out yet. Could be good, could be crap. Havent checked.
Both are these are currently on my Fr. I have a shiny Tangelier from a Fr, from a guy I meet at the Deoxys Tour. It has a great Nature, Great stats, and it is part of my BF team! ^_^

First post. Nice one. ^_^

EDIT: Never hatched a shiny either caught or soft reseted for them

No disrespect, but don't you mean R/S/E and not FR/LG? Because even though most of us know this is for R/S/E some new members may not know and talk about FR/LG here as it sometimes does happen. Anyway, as I said in July in the old thread I caught a Shiny Golbat in Victory Road on my Sapphire version. My only shiny ever in any version (excluding the Red Gyarados of course).

If this is the new thread shouldn't this one be deleted - http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=54634 ? I feel wierd saying something like that to a mod.

Anyways, onto shinyness. I captured a green Mewtwo on LeafGreen after just 3 soft resets. I'll upload box pictures later.

Kind of looking for a jolly/adamant shiny Zubat.

Altso looking for a shiny Spinda or a Ralts, so I will look for them while EV-training in sp.atk.

I had a Shiny Linone (not much diffrent, but it sparkled)... whilest I tryed to hatch a shiney zigagoon with it, I found and caught a wild one (looks the same as the others in the dim house light, but sparkles). I've also seen the shiney silicoon (pretty impressive) and a shiney sandshrew (no where near as impressive.)

Shining Mew, something that you should put it your first post about shiny Shadow Smeargle. It's tail is red normally, and green when shiny because Colosseum uses Stadium 2 models for Johto Pok&#233;mon, and back in Stadium 2 Smeargle had a green tail.

Also, on shinies, I used my Mewtwo and Linoone on Colosseum earlier. Never use them on Colosseum, they look sickening. Yellow tailed Mewtwo and a Linoone that didn't even look shiny.

Erm you guys do realise this thread was restarted because of posts like these don't you? and TRjessie579 said that these kind of posts were to stop.look.


I’m going to let you all continue to discuss shiny Pokemon you’re trying to get, but please, for the love of God don’t spam. Unfortunately, if I see too many more spam posts of this nature:

“Hatched 5 Charmander Eggs, no shiny yet.”

“10 more Eggs, still waiting for my shiny Charmander.”

etc etc, I will have to change the rules to discussion on shiny Pokemon owned ONLY. Please be considerate of my sanity. Updates every day of how many times you’ve soft-reset or how many Eggs you’ve hatched just isn’t fun for me. One post per shiny wanted per person, please.

I ain't moaning at you guys,nor am i trying to minimod,just that i don't want this thread closed.

I regret to inform you that my search for a Shiny ;004; (which lasts since March) is now oficially over, haven't been successful. The goal was to trade it to Emerald and train it to become a powerfull Shiny ;006;... Anyway, that isn't even possible since you can't trade PKMNs that are not in the 'dex you have, so I've basicly searched an hour a day for 8 months in vain... Shiny's ain't worth it, when they have to show up, they will... Good luck to you guys anyway

i am the most unluckiest for shinies. i have seen three shinies in my time. one, a shiny carvanha, which i caught, straight after finding a feebas square. But on my fire red, i saw a shiny nidoran M in the safari zone. 5 safari balls i threw. 5! and not one could catch him. And then the little blighter ran, like all safari zone blighters do. But if you thought it couldn't get any worse, then think again. On emerald, once again in the safari zone, a shiny pineco pops up. nice shiny golden pineco. i throw one safari ball. it shakes once, twice, oh no! arrgh almost had it! and then, guess what? pineco runs. :( :( am i that scary that two shinies decide to run from me?
and thats my shiny history. pretty dodgy eh?

Yeah, that's really annoying. I'm almost afraid to go into the safari zone because I might see a shiny Chansey or similar. It's even more annoying when the shinies you see are Pok&#233;mon the game does not allow you to catch (Poochyena that attacks the prof., Ralts that Wally catches, a Pok&#233;mon in Battle tower, etc.)

And mewtwo expert, I'm sorry to hear about the shiny Venomoth running off on you. The Safari Zone seems to be the worst place to find a shiny Pokemon, especially those Pokemon that loves to run off. Too bad FR/LG doesn't have that Safari Zone glitch where you can catch Safari Zone Pokemon off the east coast of the Seafoam Islands like in Red/Blue.

Actually, I don't think that you can trade with a DS and a GBA. The whole thing is that the DS has the wireless hookup so there is no need for a cord. Then another bad thing is that the wireless adapter doesn't work with linking up with the DS. So you would have to have a friend with a cord and a GBA player or another Gameboy Advance. You're pretty much stuck with a Cyndaquil.

6th November 2005, 1:40 PM
OK, I have looked here and elsewhere for the answers to these questions.

Has anyone actually hatched a shiny? If so, how long did it take? (Edited to clarify: I know people have "accidentally" hatched a shiny. What I'm asking is for those who have deliberately tried to hatch a shiny. Thanks.)

I've hatched now about 1500 Ralts trying for a shiny one. I know the odds are 1 in 8,192. I guess my question is, has anyone actually had to try for that long...or longer?

I've probably got about 1500 hours total playing time between all different pokemon games...never seen a shiny. Should I just give up as the world's unluckiest pokemon trainer?

SuperGlalie
6th November 2005, 2:17 PM
Amulekbird i think you are unlucky. Last thursday after having played my emerald for 162 hours (after starting for the first time and having caught a shiny geodude and zubat) i found a shiny golbat.

I randomly decided to listen to the music and train something and as i was in victory road i looked there to find wild pokemon to listen to the music and the second thing i found was a shiny green golbat. (And i had my shiny magneton first!) when it first appeared on the screen i knew it was a golbat but then i thought it was green and checked it and it was and i cheered. However, the stupid thing is relaxed which is defence up and speed down! eek! but i dont care now i got six shinies!

all i want is something from the ruby generation like snorunt/glalie cos they are so evil!

My only thing now is whether to evolve it or not cos on colosseum shiny golbat looks better than shiny crobat and i already have 1 of them.

LOL. Thanks for the vote of confidence. I'm determined, though...when I finally get that shiny Ralts in, say, the year 2015, I'll come back and let you all know.

BTW, I still am curious about the hatching question.

What's this? The Shiny Thread's started over! I must've been away for a little too long...

I own a shiny Linoone, Exploud, Jumpluff, Porygon2, another Hoppip, and a Dragonite. Pory and Nite were hard fought for at the Game Corner while the rest were random encounters.

I'm currently searching for a shiny Seviper, and I've already raised a Jolteon to L100 in the process. (from the Seviper patch alone) My Breloom is already L73--also just from the Seviper patch. That's probably around 5000 encounters total--more than for Pory or Nite.

I'm also the co-owner of the SHC at PC. (I don't believe links are permitted.)

I'm not looking for shinies, I'm training and hatching some Tyrogue eggs to get good natures. I'm trying to get another shiny Meowth. They're common in wild, so sooner or later I'll find one. And, like I said, I'm not looking for a one. I'm just training.

I'll restart Ruby and send shiny Wingull to LG. One of my Zigzagoons will be traded, too. Only four shinies and I'm pretty proud of them. I shouldn't. If somebody challenged me to battle with shinies I'd lose. Shiny Wingull vs. shiny Metagross. Shiny Zigzagoon(s) vs. shiny Golem. Shiny Meowth vs. shiny Tentacruel. Hehe.

Better than TWO shiny Jumpluffs! XD (and that's if I train my second Hoppip) Dragonite and Pory would handle quite nicely, I'll admit.

Note: Both of the soft reset was meant to find the correct natures, not shiny hunting.

Shiny Kyogre- About the 20th try...I was shocked with Kyogre (I was just ready to go to bed) and made sure he wouldnt die with Recoil damage from Double Edge. It was in 2004 and I showed my dorm roomie it and of course he didnt know it was shiny cuz he didnt play that version (emerald). I caught it with a Net Ball and is named "-Bass-" . AND IT WAS CALM!!! XD

RegiRock - About the 45th try...I was like "OMG, AGAIN?!? *I gave a bemused raised eyebrow and thought "Heh not ANOTHER one..."* yay for ShinyRocko with an Ultraball. I think i only weakened it to almost red...and the only bad side was that THIS sucker was also CALM. >o< (and I didnt even have Synchro)

I still have a Kecleon that I haven't "encountered" so now Im going to Shiny Hunt it...

When i had a rom of Leaf Green, I found a shiny tentacool while surfing on island 1 (about 3 steps from the path to the right of the Pokecenter. But I reseted cuz it doesnt matter what I get on a Rom

The Leaf green game I own has NO shinies (which is a first considering I avg about 3 shinies in the Metal Generations and in Emerald which I have ShinyRegiRock and Kyogre). Currently doing the "abra trick". Plan to reset the game once that happens

And yes ive gone thru all the Legendaries. My Mewtwo BLOWS since its Lax...I just wanted to get it with an Ultra Ball. I also wasted my Master ball on Sassy Raikou. Bah reset is imminent!!!

i've played my ruby for almost 400 hours and i have seen no shinies, but on my firered(a little off topic?) i've played it for 20 hours and i've seen and captured one shiny ryhorn in the afari zone. is it just me or is that slightly strange?

This is why I try to avoid roms. I'm afraid I'll find a shiny something, but it's not quite legitimate in my eyes since cheating's just that easy.

Well... I caught an Adamant Mewtwo in a Poké Ball! Beat that irony!

Better than TWO shiny Jumpluffs! XD (and that's if I train my second Hoppip)
Are you SERIOUS?! I'd LOVE to have a shiny Jumpluff or one of its evolution stages. And Jumpluff is something you really can be proud of, Zigzagoon isn't. Almost everybody has a shiny Ziggy. Or Tentacool.

Whawa. It's mad. Every Meowth, Pidgey, Phanpy or Sentret I meet seem to be shiny. I should have better headphones so I could hear the sparkle sound better. I've caught dozens of non-shiny monsters that I've thought to be shiny. Arggh!
