When can you tell if your starter is going to be shiny?

I want to soft reset to try and get a shiny Fennekin but was wondering when you see if it's shiny/ Will you see it on the screen with the three starters or would you see it after you've chosen?

After you've chosen.

It's a *****.

Got mine though, Male Modest Shiny Fennekin. Took about 12 hours with a few naps thrown in.

I wouldn't wish for the luck of 12 hours of soft resetting.

It's like a 1 in 8000 chance, aint it? 12 hours is getting off easy.

Either way, that's 12 hours of dedicated tedium.

It's actually funny that you mention that, I just got a Japanese ditto.

Don't hate my everyone.

First, the help.

You can tell their gender in the nickname screen. You have to check the stat screen for shiny.

Didn't care about finding a shiny. I just wanted a female Fennekin. SR 8 times. Saw her gender in the nickname screen. Then went to go check her out in the stats screen

Nature: Quiet
Shiny.

If finding one in 12 hours was lucky, then the Virgin Mary must have taken a dump in my Corn Flakes.
