What are Shiny Pokemon?

Shiny pokemon are pokemon that have altered colors, and sparkle when they appear in battle. Other then the color there is nothing different from a normal pokemon. In pokemon X and Y the odds of finding a shiny pokemon in the wild are 1 in 4,100. Though the odds are high there are ways of boosting the chances of finding a shiny pokemon.

An example of shiny pokemon:

Shiny Mudkip ->:iconshinymudkipplz: Normal Mudkip ->:iconmudkipplz:

The Masuda Method


The Masuda Method is a great way to get a shiny pokemon with your specific nature, ability, moves and IV stats because it requires breeding pokemon. The Masuda Method is when you breed a two different pokemon from different regions.
Example: USA Ditto 132 - Ditto by Marlenesstamps + German Gallade 475 - Gallade by Marlenesstamps = Shiny Ralts Shiny Ralts by Marlenesstamps
Now the odds of finding a shiny with the Masuda Method is around 1 in 1,200. A much higher chance of finding a shiny then just walking around in the grass.

PokéRadar Chaining


After beating either pokemon X or Y main game, you can get the PokeRadar from a scientist in Professor Sycamore's lab on the second floor, in Lumiose. Now Shiny Radar Chaining is extremely complicated because there are a bunch of factors that can mess up ones chain, and sometimes a chain just randomly break for no reason, I'm not going to explain it here because it would take up 6 paragraphs, so I will leave a link of a very good video that explains and shows examples on how to shiny chain.
How to shiny chain -> www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebeaJd…

Chain Fishing

Basically what you do is get a fishing rod, pick a spot and fish over and over again. The more bites you get the higher the chance of finding a shiny pokemon. The chain breaks if you move from the spot, or you don't get a nibble.

:star:Friend Safari

This is my personal favorite and my most successful type of shiny hunting. Though it's not 100% confirmed yet, its speculated the odds of finding a shiny Pokemon in the friend safari are 1 in 1,000.

I have found 5 shiny pokemon in the friend safari and the longest it took me to find one shiny was 667 encounters.

Safari Hunting tips:

1. Get a bunch of friend codes.

Reddit-FriendSafari is a excellent place to fill out ones friend list in a day and get spesific pokemon safari's' such as Ditto safari's and Eevee Safari's. -> www.reddit.com/r/friendsafari/

Facebook- Pokemon X and Y Friend Code Exchange is less in depth and random, but fills up ones friend list fast.-> www.facebook.com/Pokemon3DSXY

2. Have your catching team ready. 

I have 4 Pokemon just for catching pokemon.

:bulletred: a. My Sleeper and False swipe pokemon.

542 - Leavanny by Marlenesstamps I use a Leavanny with the moves Grass Whistle and False swipe. Swadloon can be caught in a Friend Safari.

475 - Gallade by MarlenesstampsI also have a Gallade with the moves Hypnosis and False Swipe. Ralts can be caught on Route 4.

That way when you come across a shiny you can put it to sleep and false swipe it for an easy safe catch. 

:bulletorange: b. My Cute Charmer

Looking for a shiny female Riolu? Catch a Male Jigglypuff on Route 20 and in or Pokémon Village. Pokemon: Jigglypuff stamp oo1 by Kaze-yo

Looking for a shiny male Kirlia, then go catch a female Skitty on Route 4. Skitty Fan Stamp by Skymint-Stamps

Cute Charm abbility will have a 50% chance of attracting the opposite gender when put in your first party.

:bulletyellow: c. My Illuminater

Speed up the time it takes to find pokemon with Illuminate ability.

I use 505 - Watchog by Marlenesstamps on Route 15 and I use 313 - Volbeat by Marlenesstamps on Route 7


:bulletgreen: d. Synchronize

Want that perfect nature, use a pokemon with the Synchronize ability.

I use 280 - Ralts by Marlenesstamps on Route 4.

If the Pokémon is in the lead spot, chance of encountering a wild Pokémon with the same nature will be 50%.

3. Use your Smoke Ball!

Your going to be running away from a ton of pokemon so use the Smoke Ball. You can find the Smoke Ball inside the Lost hotel in route 15.Bola humo (Dream World) by GeneralGibby

Well that sums it up for me! Have any questions leave a comment below.

I found a shiny male yesterday, but a person can up the 12.5% odds of finding a shiny Female Riolu by 50% by using a Male pokemon with the Cute Charm ability.
