whats the easiest way to get shiny pokemon without using action

I really want to know how to get shiny Pokemon please help. I heard that you can get shiny Pokemon by hatching an egg from a Pokemon from another country and from my country. Tell how many eggs do have to hatch to get a shiny because I hatch about 50 eggs and I never got any

There's approximately a 1 in 6700 +/- chance of seeing wild Shinies. That chance getting a shiny will increase if you hatch, but not from a different country...theres no theory behind that. A few hundred eggs is what you may have to hatch inorder to get waht you want. An easier way to get Shinies is to use the Pokeradar and chain wild Pokemon to get higher chance of shiny. If grass sparkles, then it's a shiny. Good luck finding one.

The Chance of running into a Shiny is 1 in 8000+. Breeding a Pokemon with another Pokemon from a different Nationality (country) will cut it to 1 in 2000+. Also, Pokeradar will work. You need to Chain a Pokemon for at least 40 Battles before a Shiny will appear, but go for a Grass Patch that just Sparkles without moving.

ive played since the begining of pokemon i own every version attainable including green for awhile before i broke it and the only shiny i have ever gotten was the red gyarados in the lake of rage i dont think chaining works it just allows you to see a pokemon repetedly and if you see the same one 40 times of course theirs a higher chance of it being a shiny then seeing it once

The pokeradar method is what you should do. I have two shinies one is a shiny staraptor and a shiny dunsparce go for the patch on the outside rim which is about spaces away

Breeding Pokemon from different countries should work. You can get a Japanese abra and haunter in platinum and a french pikachu in HG/SS.I have 4 shinies walrein from shoal cave,gyarados from lake of rage, dugtrio from a desert in diamond, and a dratini from dragons den.

The first Pokemon I got in platinum was a shiny Zubat. So yes it is very possible to get a shiny without AR.
After that I've never seen another since.

I have only encountered 3 shiny pokemon. 4 if you count red gyrados. 1 was a shiny diglett in leafgreen, which I didnt catch.... At that time, I thught it was a glitch, tried to catch it, and failed.... 2nd shiny,was a bronzor on platinum. At that time, I knew what shinies were, so I caught it with the last pokeball I had. I Transported it to soulsilver and all my other Pokemon, and continued on. My newset shiny was a few days ago when I re-started platinum. I wasn't even trying, and my starter was a shiny turtwig. You have a lower chance of a shiny starter than one in the wild.Hope this helped!

To be honest it is just luck. But I do have a tip. When coming across a shiny don't battle it. Use a quick ball and if that doesnt work use a dusk ball(if it's night or in a cave) or use an ultra ball. Of none works use a Pokemon about 5-10 levels under the shiny and after about 15 attacks use a timer ball. If none works then just try and capture it (like using all the pokeballs you have untill you capture it) hope this helps!!!

Well if you soft restart right before you pick your starter you can keep trying to get one. Unfortunly it takes 72 hours to even come close I know my friend did it and timed himself and toke him 84 hours. He got a shiny chimchar but wanted piplup LOL.

If you have Pokemon Emerald, go into any cave except victory road and there will be a 1 in 200 chance of you catching a shiny zubat or golbat. Also, the Poocheyana attacking professor Birch has a high percentage of being shiny. This only works in Emerald version though. Otherwise hope you get lucky

Just recently on my first white game at the badge check gate where you find wild Pokemon I found and caught a shiny rufflet I actually sort of knew I would find a shiny rufflet, I didn't use any shiny cheats bcaz whenever I go in2 a place to find Pokemon with my shiny cheat on for my black, white, and white 2 my game freezes I have no idea why it duz that. And my other Pokemon games the events for them I usually always miss since I get the Pokemon games way after the event iz over with, on my ss, plat. , diamond I get the event ar codes always put in the codes right I quadruple check /4 times/ do the actvation right and the code will not work.

Lol. The Masuda method aka hatching eggs from breeding a foreign Pokemon (one from a different country) and one from your own country works. 50 eggs isn't enough always either. It takes time and patience. If you don't have either I'd suggest not doing it or hope somebody is willing to trade. I hatched 2 shiny Pokemon so far using this method, so I know it works. I hatched a shiny female larvitar on the 55th egg. That was the first one. Second one, was a shiny female trapinch on the 558th egg. I never used a ditto tho. I used two larvitar and two trapinch.

I have caught two shiny Pokemon on my Pokemon Emerald version. One of the occasions intentional, the other not. I was looking for a shiny spinda and found one but I wasn't looking for a shiny smeargle but I found one. Where the spindas are found, it's not very common that you find anything other than spindas, the only other things you could find are scarmorys and slugmas so it's pretty easy plus you can collect ashes to make flutes and/or the decorative items the man offers to trade you for the ashes while you are trying to find the shiny. Smeargles are the only Pokemon found in artisan cave, which is on the battle front so you can't get there until beating the elite four at least once. Go explore the cave and run around for a while. It's not hard. It didn't take me more than an hour for either one. So my advice for catching any shinies is look for a place that has the highest chance of finding the Pokemon that you're looking for.

Hope this helps! Smile
