Well there is only one way to get legit shiny's in heartgold and soulsliver. And that is just look for them. The odds are getting a shiny are 1 in 8192. So they are very rare. But in Platinum you can use the poke radar and make a chain which makes it a lot more likely to get shiny's

Yes you can. What you have to do is just save in front of them and turn it off and on if you don't get it shiny. This could take 2 or 3 tries or weeks of trying. So it's really hard and rare but it would be cool to have a shiny lugia or something

And for chaining. Usually the part when your going to get shiny's is when your chain is at 40. Which is the max. Then the odds are like 20% you will get a shiny

you can also breed for shinies legitly through the use of an online calculator if you know your Secret ID. Thats how I got my beloved shiny umbreon. I don't really remember the specifics of how it works... but It does work and it is completely legit.

If you are REALLY lucky, like I was when I caught me a Purple Pincer named Grape, you could catch Pokemon in the wild. I caught mine in a Bug Catching Contest.

If this is for Pt or some other game, though, it doesn't go here.

uh, i think i got it off a link from this site like a year ago... I dont really remember though. Like I said, I did this over a year ago.

I also don't really know how to determine your SID. I traded someone else a pokemon and he was able to determine it for me. I don't know how he did it though, and I really don't even remember who he was.
