    If I had to hazard a guess, I would say that the inspiration for shiny Pokemon came from Episode 21 of the anime. Before Gold and Silver were released, the anime had one:

        Spoiler:- Episode 21: Bye Bye Butterfree:


    That would be my guess as to what originally inspired shiny Pokemon since they didn't exist in Gen 1 of the games or manga, but did exist in the first season of the anime.

    I used to RNG in diamond but I got bored of that. So I MM my shinies on BW now. Also, I encountered a shiny oddish in Diamond. Thank god I caught it. Also, a shiny scyther via the Pokeradar :3

    I personally like Shinies, they give me a reason to play the game after the E4. I used to chain in Pearl, but in SoulSilver and Black I've turned to Masuda breeding. It's hard, but worth it! I prefer shiny Pokémon with vibrant differences, it shows off how rare they are well and is very noticeable. At the moment, I have 50+ Shinies, and when I have all my targets, I'll have over 70.

    However, I wish traditional hunters and RNGers would stop fighting and dissing each other, it's totally uncalled for! RNGed Shinies are not 'cheating', and traditional methods aren't 'dumb'. RNGed Shinies require timing skills and are good for battling with, traditionally caught Shinies need perseverance and are good for collecting and thrills. A shiny is a shiny, no matter what, unless it's hacked of course. =)

    You know what, you're right. I apologize for sounding rude earlier. I still think shiny-hunting is a bit of a waste of time, but if that floats your boat, go for it. Even I am temtped to masuda method something just for the heck of it, despite being able to RNG eggs with huge ease.

    I've seriously considered RNGing for shinies but my favorite part of shiny hunting is the shock and surprise when you finally find one. It's like finding a hundred dollar bill on the ground. If I battled competitively I would RNG but I only shiny hunt so that I have something to do after beating the game. Also some shinies look really awesome.

    It's great how nowadays, you can have all the shinies you want! Forget the Matsuda method and all this other time-consuming stuff. LOL
    Even though I can have all the shinies I want, I sometimes prefer to keep their original color

    ok i have to ask, what is RNGing, im confused is that where you cheat to get the shiny?
    Desert Pokemon are magnificent Ninjas, they hide in the sand waiting and watching, then when you least expect it, they attack and drag you under the sand...

    No, that's called Pokegen/Action Replay.
    RNG Abuse is predicting the game's algorithms with a computer software to see the exact date/hour a shiny and/or perfect pokémon will be produced. If you've found wild shinies in the past, you've RNG abused without even realizing it.

    I'm sorry, but it's way too complicated to explain in a single post. I could link you to some cool guides via PM if you want me to. Then again, rng abuse is really complicated the first times around and takes a lot of patience and trial-and-error.

    I have too many shiny's to name however I would say my proudest shiny would be my Shiny Zen Mode Darmanitan that I ran into first encounter. It was so cool. And Dragon Master I wouldn't recommend RNG unless you have a LOT of time on your hands. It took me forever to learn and I still don't get it. It had been several months so I finally gave up.

    ^ Took me around a week to master it. Several months? Something's not right about it.

    My guess is you got confused when following your guides. Happens to most people, me included.

    I just found out a few weeks ago that I don't have the right DS anyway. Oh well. I'm still really good at finding shinies.

    Okay I've seen posts about people finding shinies on the GTS but every shiny I've seen on there asks for a Lv. 9 and under Zekrom or Reshiram or something impossible like that. So how are these people finding shinies on there? Do you keep searching until you find one that you can actually trade for or what?
