    ► Usually in Pokemon Games, there is nothing more exciting than finding a shiny Pokemon. Depending on the game that you're playing, you'll have a 1/8192 (Gen5 and Below) or 1/4096 (Gen6 and above) base rate for encountering a shiny Pokemon, making them extremely rare and highly sought after. Some Pokemon you can see on your journey, like the catching tutorial Weedle or Wally's Ralts, can be shiny if the stars align just right - however you WON'T want to encounter these, because you won't be able to catch them! Here are five examples of shiny encounters that would be absolute fails!

I think SS/HG's worse than FR/LG seeing how you have to go through two routes (which I'd imagine is more grass patch encounters than what you'd have to do in FR/LG)
