ironically enough, I recently caught a shiny zubat in mount moon myself... I named him Vladimir (after Vlad The Impaler, who was the basis for Count Dracula)

Star also said she caught a Shiny Zubat in the other shiny topic.

All I have have is a Red backed Sandslash (Was a Sandshrew I found in the desert), not too much different than the regular.

I think Shinies should look more different, I mean I could make 200 different color Raichus and each one would look better than the shiny that's in the game.

Such as, <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v433/Raichumvp/Raichu10aa.gif">

:shock: I called my Miltank, Vladimir, I don't know why, it's pretty stupid and doesn't make sense though the strange thing is that it was also shiny. :shock: Though this was GSC. I still haven't seen a shiny in FRLG yet, and I have played for more than 40 hours (on both of them).

I played almost 1000 hours on my Gold and never saw 1 shiny (Gyarados in Lake of Rage doesn't count, since it's in every game).

I have 187:13 on my LG, just like gold, never saw even 1 shiny.

Get this guys. About 3 hours after catching a shiny zubat. I CAUGHT A SHINY ODDISH!!! I named it Venus. Well RaichuLatias you probably know this but trying to catch a shiny just takes patience. If I was you i'd just keep playing. Eventually, you'll get a shiny.

Yeah I know, just it seems a little strange that I never saw one in about 1000 hours (Also had no luck hatching the Egg in Crystal, all were regular).

Though i'm not looking for them, since odds are horrible of finding one, just I leave Zigmund ({linoone}) (Has T-Wave) and {marowak} (Has False Swipe) on my party while I Covet items, or EV Train.

I did catch a {sandshrew} that was shiny in my Ruby, In Desert (it's stats stink though).

Congrats on catching your Zubat and Oddish, it seems strange how many people on here have caught shiny Zubats.

In Ru/Sa/FR/LG, I've only seen or caught one shiny, and that was a Green Chimecho, which I still cherish to this day. Chimecho are hard to find as it is, let alone shiny ones.

But I've found a ton in GSC. Golduck, Diglett, Pidgey, Zubat, Rhyhorn, Igglybuff, among others. A buddy of mine had a shiny Typhlosion.

And as to the odds, I'm not sure, but they're not good.

It makes sense when you think about it. The proportion of encounters, when broken down, is disgustingly in favor of Zubat over any other Pokemon. He's Rediculously common. With something based so wholey on statistics, every single encounter means that much more.

exactly... Zubat is most common in caves, and Tentacool on water, so if you catch a shiny in either of those areas, chances are, it'll be one of those two (or their evolutions, depending on where you are) Basically, don't expect shiny versions of pokemon that are tougher to come by (Chansey, Chimecho, etc.) though it is possible...

I forgot to give credit where credit is due. Awesome work on that nicknaming. I rarely see such creative and intelligent naming. It's mostly just names people think are cool. Or, if you're AMitch, either of racial slurs and words we thought were funny when we were 11.
