Well we have all heard about the odds 1/8192 to get a shiny well what if we go to percent well its not a nice percent age it like this: 0,01220703125%

well i only posted this in case some of you wanted the percent age since i think it is rather confusing.

Well enjoy knowing how impossible it is.

It's not a nice percentage because video games, being based on the principles of computers, use Binary instead of Base 10.
8192 = 2^13, so it's actually a very nice, round number in binary.

Yeah, it's near to impossible. That makes it all the sweeter when you do find a Shiny (:

For further information, please refer to the Shinies Guide on the main site, which can be found here: http://psypokes.com/lab/shiny.php
