I caught 2 shiny Poliwhirls today thanks to chain fishing. It's really great, you can get a shiny in 20 minutes or less so long as you don't break your chain.


Its been so long though I want y first one to be legit.

Now my two shinies on one play through seems godly. Those were the only two shinies I've ever encountered though.

5 Shinies found in the wild for me:

Diglet in Crystal
Ponyta, Gyarados, and Geodude in seperate playthroughs of Diamond (a Nuzlocke and had to re-obtain the game after it was stolen)
Solrock in White (but it used Explosion)

That is legit. You aren't using a cheat device to force them to be shiny, you're going out in the wild and simply using luck to catch a shiny.

That being said, wild shinies usually aren't that good. :/

Shinies are cool when you find them, but it's easier to breed them via Masuda method. In X and Y it's about 1 in 200 eggs for a shiny. If you want the thrill of finding one in the wild, chain fish.

Where did you cook that crock up? It's at BEST 1/455 with MM AND the Shiny Charm TOGETHER.
