    In the 400 odd hours i've spent on pokémon games... Never encountered one shiny pokémon =[ Woe is me.

    EDIT: I've read the F.A.Q so sorry if I frustrate someone, but could I please be enlightened about "chaining?"

    Yeah, as has already been said the shininess depends on both the Pokémon's personality value (hidden) and its trainer ID and secret ID. Since an egg gains the hatcher's ID, it wouldn't have been shiny when you traded it to another game.

    However, the trainer ID of the egg is only set after it hatches, so as it's hatching, the game still thinks that it's shiny. However, checking its stats after will show that it's not.

    As long as you didn't save after hatching it, you can trade it back to Pearl to have it hatch shiny again.

    I'm SRing for a second shiny Giratina... since my first was on my now sold copy of the game, and I need a shiny on this local copy so I can calculate my secret ID to use the pseudo-RNG to find more shinies with good timing. I'n at 700 SRs so far, the first Giratina took 1836 (it's on video).

    Don't feel bad; my first random shiny didn't occur until my game time on Pearl was well over 800 hours. And on Platinum I got lucky as if to make up for it. The law of averages should play out that way...

    I managed to capture a shiny Starly when I was trying to chain a Nidoran last week, and I also hatched a shiny Gible a few hours later. I'm currently investigating to see if hell has frozen over, but I'm too cheap to fly over to Portland. Hopefully, this lucky streak will continue.
    Oh dear. It looks like shame.

    Recently hatched a shiny Nincada after hatching 26+ eggs looking for either a Jolly or Adamant nature. I was pretty surprised considering the rarity of hatching a shiny pokemon especially since i just breed a Ninjask and Ditto. Thanks to a good friend who also helped me with my team, he gave me a shiny Trapinch.

    I was so freaking excited, i accedentally turned off the game.

    I got Platinum on Thursday, and I've been soft resetting for a shiny Piplup since then. Hopefully it shines soon because I kinda want to get on with the game. I can be patient, however, because I did the exact same thing with my shiny Chimchar on my Diamond version two years ago.

    After I get shiny Piplup, I plan on soft resetting for shiny Giratina-O. Then Palkia afterwards.

    Good luck, everyone.

    Tonight I got a shiny Flaaffy and 3 Magmar.
    They're my first radar pokemon since starting Platinum so I'm very happy with them.
    Hopefully if I have enough patience I'll try going after Swinub next.

    A: Throw some Ralts away.

    B: The odds are still high, and the Masuda method works with foreign Pokemon, not with Pokemon of a different Trainer ID.
    156 Pokemon in the Unova dex. 6 of them are event Pokemon.
    151 Pokemon in the Kanto dex. 1 of them is an event Pokemon.

    When you see it...

    I've recently gotten a shiny Turtwig in Platinum by SRing. I've been trying on and off since I got the game back in March, so I'm happy that it appeared.

    Shiny Turwig
    Quiet nature, Loves to Eat
    Turtwig's Stats

    I have also successfully hatched a shiny Onix in my other copy of Platinum using the Masuda Method. It took me 1503 eggs for it to finally hatched, it has a Modest nature.

    Shiny Onix, Modest nature

    Currently hatching for shiny Cyndaquil(Masuda Method), as well as SRing for a shiny Giratina in my Japanese Platinum.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but is chaining easier on Platinum


    
    Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
    To seize everything you ever wanted-
    One moment
    Would you capture it or just let it slip?

    Yesterday I got my very first legit shiny. With no luck finding dialga and palkia up on spear pillar for some reason I decided to have a random battle with my lvl 9 zubat and it turned out that it was a shiny graveler. I switched to my milotic and it used earthquake, then used a dusk ball (I had alot for the legendaries) and caught it. It's lonely nature (+atk -def)
    and i'll evolve it soon

    I've had some nice luck lately.
    A couple weeks back, I had a Cubone swarm in Platinum. Tried to chain it, failed around 32. Tried again. After the first one, I ran to the next patch. I'd swear the patch didn't sparkle, but it was a shiny Cubone, Jolly nature.
    Yesterday night, I caught 12 shiny Torkoal from chaining.
    This morning, I was chaining Tyrogue on the bus. My chain was around 9 or so, and it broke, to a shiny Meditite.
    And then, for some reason, I decided I wanted a shiny Flygon, so I pulled out my Diamond version. When I first set off the radar in the sandstorm on its route, I realized it wasn't going to be easy to see (I hadn't realized what a difference Platinum had made to the PokeRadar), but I tried anyway. In my third attempt, at a chain of 7 Vibrava, I got a sparkly patch. I about cheered.

    ^My first two scratches ever.
