Hello, my name is joseph. I started playing pokemon for the first time when i was 4, when i cluelessly but happily picked up a pokemon yellow game, and watched little pikachu follow me around. 10 years later, i still enjoy the game that first brought a smile to my face, but i enjoy the game in a more understanding matter. 10 years, and the only "shiny" pokemon i'd ever seen was a red gyrados, from i think it was pokemon crystal. I thought this pokemon was just a rare, like the others, until three weeks ago. Me and my cousin are very competitive and love to show off our pokemon to eachother, and one day, he yelled, "JOE, LOOK AT THIS!" To my amazement, a rapidash with the most amazing colors appeared on his screen. I didnt know what it was, but i was amazed at it. My cousin caught his first shiny that day; and we started looking on the internet about these shinies, and saw that EVERY pokemon had a shiny form. But we never had one before. And neither have i.
So i'd like to ask you all, if you can, to give me any tips on catching a shiny pokemon, any tips at all. Or if anybody wants to let me have ANY shiny pokemon, as i've never owned one before. But you would have to tell me how to do the trade, or tell me how to catch a shiny. Thank you, and please; if you read this, reply. (:
