In Ruby and Sapphire, do I have to see the sparkles around the Pokemon to know if it is shiny?
And do I have to throw a PokeBall to see the sparkles? Of course, I have shinies in my Gold and Crystal Version, but in Ruby and Sapphire, will I see the difference in color of the opposing shiny when I enter battle?
I don't want to miss out on any shinies here, because I have not seen any in my Ruby or Sapphire Versions, and I figured that there was some secret to identifying shinies!
Also, Pokemonst, I like your submission, but how did you escape a battle with a wild shiny Pokemon? I thought it wasn't possible to escape battle with a shiny!
