I have never seen a shiny pokemon in game ever. I feel like I fail at being a trainer.

I caught a shiny Koffing in Silver and thought the game was broken so I restarted.... I failed, you're just unlucky

The first shiny I ever encountered was a gold Hoothoot. I nearly **** my pants. In most cases, I would have perfectly suitable pokemon and pokeballs that would help me catch it. The only problem was that I was in the safari zone, so I could only throw mud or throw food or throw a ball. I had no idea what to do. I couldn't find any pattern that helps catching safari zone pokemon. No matter what, if I threw mud, food or a ball, then sometimes the pokemon run away on the first turn and I was at risk of that happening. I looked on the internet, and I don't know if there were any guides to help with the subject. If there was, I couldn't find them and I was debating what to do. Finally, I decided to throw a safari ball. My heart was racing hard. I put down my DS and turned the screen around. I couldn't bear to look and see whether or not the Hoothoot had run away. It took a few minutes to build up the courage to look at the screen and see that yes, I had caught it. And that's the only time I ever came across a shiny pokemon. The end.

This story had me on the edge of my seat, it had ups and downs, solid writing throughout and a happy ending. Would queue for signed copies of.

Wait. You don't have to have luck anymore and can effectively farm shinies instead?   
Great, now they aren't anything special anymore

you could always do this since gen 4, but it still takes a **** ton of time. And it only works on things that appear in grass

After years of waiting, I finally got my first shiny Pokemon. A Charmander. I just need Charizardite X to see what it looks like, then I will be satisfied.

Mega Charizard Y is black death..

I got a shiny Flabebe by doing this (Now a Florges)
Also it is ok to go into grass on the border AS LONG as you reset the pokeradar right after going on the barder.
also if you randomly encounter one of the legendary birds while doing this do not freak out as it does not break your chain

I caught a shiny Piloswine in the ice cave while on my way to uni. Someone in my class told me it didnt count because Piloswine sucks. 5 minutes later, I found a shiny golett (officially my game telling him to go suck it).

About a week later, I was in a friend safari and found a shiny dragonaire.

The last shiny I ran into in the wild was in Emerald. It was Rayquaza at the top of the tower. When I saw that glorious Black-with-yellow-trim I felt like the man who found Nessie. I used everything at my disposal - paralysis, deliberately using the weakest attacks known to man to avoid killing it, heck I even had someone with False Swipe for some reason - I then used every pokeball I had (roughly 20 of each common type, plus a handful each of the others), and as my very last pokeball (Timer ball) left my hand and shook once, I shook. It shook twice. I was shaking harder. THIRD SHAKE. Ohhh godogodogod.

The pokeball reopened. I actually had tears of frustration running down my face. The next time I loaded the game and fought him, he was the normal green, the colour of my rage whenever I see a ************ with a black Rayquaza.

easier way to do it .
get a pokemon with suction cups and fish without moving , this creates a fishing chain .
you're welcome
User avatar #22 - ehzio (10/31/2013) [+] (4 replies) do you find shinies in the older games other than walking around?

because I don't have enough money to buy the 2DS nor enough for X Y

Buying super repels are more cost efficient as you only get 50 extra steps on a max repel.
