Abusing of the ingame methods... Is the hardest. You don't have any method at all. Just pure 1/8192 rage.

The easiest, GSC. I think by breeding a shiny Pokémon you had 1/64~ chance or something of hatching a shiny baby.

Yes, you will find one. Is it worth it? That's up to you, really.

Do not "try" and find a shiny in Gen 3, you will go crazy. Just play the game through and hope you find one along the way. Or you could soft reset for a starter/legendary, but you probably will go crazy doing that also. :s

I restarted my Ruby game 4 times and found a shiny each time. Zigzagoon was the first pokemon I ran into after getting my starter and it was shiny. Second run, I found shiny Spoink on the way down from the mountain. Third playthrough gave me shiny Tentacool while surfing from the town by the daycare. And last time another shiny Zigzagoon showed up.

Was able to send the last two to gen 4 cause Diamond was out by then.

It's crazy, I literally maxed out the time on ruby when I was younger and I'm pretty sure I didn't run into one shiny, so I'd love to find one on that game now

Is that true if you didn't have a shiny Pokemon to breed in the first place???
