Besides trading, how do you usually find your shiny pokemon?
I've only seen a few ever and all of the them were random encounters. I caught a shiny Hoot-Hoot in Gold years ago. Then nothing until I caught a shiny impish cubone (which is awesome) and then a shiny magikarp (which is not awesome) a few days later. I got myself a japanese ditto hoping for better luck...
Also, I suck at pokeradar in D/P/P. Any tips? --- Chase HG 3954 0240 1081
Ha! Thanks everyone. I caught a shiny Swablu (female docile) in Diamond while using the pokeradar. Hilariously enough, my chain was 1 when I caught it, but the chain ended at 18 (tied for my personal best). Any nickname suggestions? --- Chase HG 3954 0240 1081
