    Didn't even think about it until my wife sent me a shiny Cubone today. Anybody else seen any cool shinies?

    I saw a shiny Shelmet on the GTS but didn't have the required Pokémon for it at the time, if that counts. Still waiting to encounter my first 3D shiny.

    I caught a shiny Shelmet on the weekend, but it was on Black 2, while I was waiting for X to arrive. I'll be trading it over along with my shiny Crobat at some point.

    I had so many hours in Sapphire (like 300 or so?) and never found a single shiny in my life ;O; My brother did find a few, including a shiny Palkia IIRC...

    Never encountered a shiny in my life lol
    havent played that much pokemon really, but am currently playing xy atm.

    Is there anything special about encountering a shiny that i should know?
    like does it alert you that your fighting a shiny or does some special music play?
    wanna know incase i do encounter one and not kill it by accident lol.

    The pokemon gets some glitters, and some have really different colour palettes.

    Hopefully its noticeable to me, since i dont really have all the exact colors of every pokemon memorized, especially the newer ones.

    But im guessing its hard to get shinies, is their any different ways to make them appear more frequently?
    Like whats the "Masuda method" Riyaz is referring to?

    Thanks for the respones, if i encounter any shinies i dislike ill trade them with you guys.
    I usually prefer Gen 1 pokemon and some from Gen 2-3.

    The Masuda Method is when you have two pokemon breed from a different region. For example a pokemon from Japan, and a pokemon from america. This multiplies the chance you receive a shiny by 6. So instead of 1/8192 you get a chance of 1/1356. This also lets you 'choose' the shiny pokemon. I have have a japanese ditto which I use for breeding.

    Sure, though I'd kinda like a shiny in return, if that's okay.
