Shininess in Gen IV remakes
I've noticed something a little bit odd. Although it could be pure chance, I've found shiny (non-Gyarados) pokemon twice in Soul Silver: Geodude before I reset, and just now a Nidoran (M). Have they messed with the shiny settings or something?
No clue I found a crap load in emerald but none in a few other games. Just lucky.
It's all to do with luck.
The statistics are still 1 in nearly 9,000. That just means the chances are slim, not that you will find one every 9,000 battles or whatever.
I know people who can't find them to save their life, and then I have found a few. One I accidentally fainted, it was a nido female.
