Well how's this: ill give ya a better answer then IMPOSSIBLE, ok? Ill give ya the statistics of shiny pokemon. You have a 8 out of 65536 chance of finding one. People say 1 out of 8192, and this is the same thing. Just in smaller numbers. And this rate is SET. As in it will never go down, up, right, nothing. Now the 8% out of 65536, is determined by your ID number, and your hidden ID number. Theres basically no way telling what your hidden ID is without hacking. So basically speaking, what shining pokemon(plural)you find, and how often you find them, is determined by your ID number. Also, since this is a charmander your talking about,you must breed it. If I were doing it, I'd breed a female charmander of YOURS, and a male charmander of someone elses. (or flip flop that, works either way) that will make eggs appear more often. And another thing, bring a camerupt or something that has the ability flame armor of magma body. This will cut the egg steps in half. Always have the eggs in front, nd in no time you will have a thousand charmanders. Even though I doubt any of these will be shiny...

On a side note, I breed cranadoses. I have breed about 6 hundred by now, and I indeed have found a shiny one. His name is randall :}

Yes there is, said without trading. I am sorry, but no there is not. Charmander is not in the game. The only to way get a Charmander is to cheat, trade someone, or migrate one. Sorry.

The only way you can get a charmander in the first place on Diamond and Pearl is by trading, hacking, etc.

These people are lying to you. Have you ever heard of catching a ditto and breeding eggs?

Antiscoolio27, to breed CHARMANDERS you must have a Ditto, like you said, BUT, you also need a CHARMANDER to breed. You get the Charmander by trade, hacking, or migrating.

You can catch a Ditto in the grass patch East of Canalaive City and if you leave a Ditto and another Pokemon in daycare [Excluding most Legendaries] You can check the daycare app and there will be an egg you then talk to the guy out the front of the Daycare Center and he will give you an egg.
I also think you can catch a charmander at the grass patch at the Resort Area.
