Shiny Zekrom?

I heard that you can catch a shiny Zekrom if you don't kill it in Ns castle, but only in Ns castle. Is that true?

No, it is not true. whoever was telling you this was likely pulling your leg because according to a few sources, it's not possible to get Shiny Zekrom (or Reshiram) AT ALL.

why? cause they programmed it that way (same for victini). Why do that? no idea... but whoever told you, was pulling a prank on you.

and despite what yochao says, Zekrom does NOT disappear if you defeat it with a full party (which progresses the game). once the credits finish rolling, you can find Zekrom again in Dragonspiral Tower. now whether it disappears for good THERE, I couldn't tell you, as I caught mine at N's Castle.

No, exactly before your fight against N, a cinematic show you how Zekrom reborn and you fight for catch it and then automaticaly you fight against N. If you kill Zekrom, you'll never find him again because N castle only appears in that part of the game

You can get a shiny zekrom by making it faint over and over until you find the shiny zekrom, but its really rare to find, even i cant get a shiny zekrom. but if you dont get shiny zekrom, just check its stats and nature. If its nature is brave, adamant, or naughty, the attack will go high because of the nature. So good luck with that!
P.S. Shiny Zekrom looks a little bit more gray than black, so it looks like dark gray. And, the shiny zekrom is going to give out some shiny stars when it appeared.

Oh by the way if you make zekrom faint it wont disappear so you have to catch zekrom before fighting N, and you dont get exp from fighting zekrom

u are unable to get a shiny zekrom, u can kill it 16,000 times which techincally should find u 2 shinies u won't find it because zekrom/reshiram/victini can't be shiny BUT i personally believe the 14th movie the 3 will be given away shiny most like black will get shiny zekrom and white will get shiny reshiram and pokemon gray will get shiny victini :)

NO you MUST CATCH ZEKROM! Slick D not to sound mean but your close , though no matter how many times you K.O. Zekrom or it K.O.s you (Which would be pathetic) But you cannot grind from zekrom because it gives no exp if you run out of pokeballs K.O. it and buy more no matter what you do you have to catch zekrom you can leave and go get stuff by teleporting but the only way to continue on is to catch zekrom

"The game is programmed so that the wild Reshiram, Zekrom and Victini in Generation V will never be encountered Shiny. However, like all Pokemon, these Pokemon have Shiny sprites."
