I have Pokemon Leafgreen, and i love the way the black Charizard looks awsome. The only problem is, is that i cant seem to get a shiny charmander. Ive heard from the site that its supposed to take forever to obtain, as in 1 out of 8,720 or something like that, but i need to comfirm it.

So if anyone has or had a shiny charmander or black charizard, please HHHEEEEEAALLPPP!!!!!

You need luck, basically. Keep restarting the game and hope to get one shiny Charmander. The chances of a Pokemon being shiny is 1/8192.

For more information about Shinies, use the site's Shinies guide here: http://psypokes.com/lab/shiny.php

Thanks Snowball, i know about the odds and everything. its just that, i guess i need a bit of proof to encourage me to keep on mindlessly soft-reseting the game 8,000 times.

an easier way is to make lots of eggs and have magma body or an egg hatching speeder its quicker than reseting the game

Is it true that shiny parents are more likely to produce shiny offspring than ordinary parents?

nope, even in the shiny guide part of the main site, it says that the odds of a shiny egg is the same as a normal shiny pokemon. so its also 1/8192

Keep in mind that just because you reset 8,000 times does not mean you will get a shiny Charmander. The odds every time you reset remain 1 in 8192. Yet this is still the only method you have to obtain one so odds and everything else don't matter if you really want one.
