No.
It's probably easier to find a gold bar on the street than finding a shiny pokemon.


I have had my pokes catch pokerus three or four times now, but not one single shiny.

Ah yes, I remember the day I encountered my first (and to this date, my only) non-fixed Shiny.

I was roaming in the exotic land of Sinnoh. I had stopped in Pastoria and decided to explore it's famous Great Marsh. And it is there that I met him. The <s>white whale</s> purple Quagsire.

Words cannot accurately describe my excitement upon encountering this creature. Filled with enthusiasm, I lobbed my Pokeball. The Quagsire broke free and, alas, it fled. I have hoped to stumble upon one again, even after all these years, but it would seem that Quagsire took all my hopes of catching a shiny with it when it fled.

But yeah. Saw one in either Diamond or Platinum, it ran off, and I haven't encountered a non-fixed Shiny since.

Other than the red Gyarados, I've seen a shiny Oddish in Crystal, but couldn't catch it; I was either out of Pokeballs or storage was full, I forget which. I also found a shiny Golbat in Soul Silver, which I did catch (Crobat being my favorite Pokemon and all).

It was the original Silver version, I encountered and caught either an Oddish or a Gloom (this was a long time ago). When I evolved it into a Bellossom, I noticed that its coloration was not what I expected from the evolutionary charts in the strategy guide, there was also a sparkle icon next to its name.

Caught a shiny golbat in emerald.

I was like 9 so I didn't know anything about shinies, I just noticed that it was the wrong color. Nothing says ”it's your lucky day” like a brown golbat
