    Default The Official Shiny Discussion Of D/P 2

    Because there was so much spam in the last thread, a new one had to be made. Please follow all of the rules. And have fun.

    Shiny Discussion Rules
    1. Discuss Shiny Pokemon only.
    2. Don't offer/request to trade
    3. Don't ask foolish questions, such as "How do I get a shiny?" Read the F.A.Q.
    4. Do not post unless you have a paragraph's (for this case, four good sentences) worth of information. We don't need separate posts for every little detail.
    5. Don't post just to say what you have been or will be SRing/chaining for. This will usualy be considered spam.


    If you want to discuss chaining shinies, please go here.

    F.A.Q. from the old thread
    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 or 4th 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-dp/

    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: Unlike in older gens, if a shiny Ditto transforms into the opponent it will only be shiny if the opponent was shiny.

    Currently chaining larvitar, but the chains keep breaking. I won't give up though! My brother is in for a surprise when I catch and train a shiny larvitar. I have an adamant synchronizer and I'm not afraid to use it!

    not yet, it was 1 am when i caught it and I couldnt fall asleep cuz i was too busy watching it and too excited, and i have to buy new batteries for the wiimote so ill transfer it later there.

    OH YEAH, and i caught it in a premier ball, and its bold.

    good luck to you guys.

    Thanks S.O.W

    I'm going to restart my japanese diamond later and start resetting for a shiny turtwig, it's been a target of mine for some time, but i'm going to focus most of my time on shiny snorlax, i'll get a few hundred in a day for turtwig.

    I've been doing a lot of serching around about the shiny pokemon and the icons you guys have on this site, many shiny pokemon are unimpressive. Take Blaziken for example, all being shiny does for him just makes him a tad darker. Why not have Shiny pokemon that have a cool look to them, making them really defined?

    Well don't expect them all to appear that quickly; you're very lucky if you get them in under 1000 soft resets. Shinies tend to take a while to appear.

    For example; my shiny Abra took 10,955 SR to appear (well, not SR exactly; I was buying them from the GC in LG). My shiny Dialga took 25,249 SR. My shiny Torchic took just under eight months to appear, and my shiny Moltres took over ten months to appear.

    I see we have others after shiny Giratina. Good luck! I'm at 9600 soft resets for my own shiny Giratina.

    Wow, I lost nearly 30 posts from the thread deletion. Anyway, I chained some Venomoth yesterday, but the chain broke at 31. I was really looking for Pinsir though, and when I finally found one to start chaining, it broke at 10 :<. I'll give it another try later today though; I really want that Pinsir! And, while it's a new thread, I might as well sum up all my Shinies. I'll keep updating this page as I add to my collection.
