I'm gonna break down how shiny odds are calculated in every single generation and how different methods of shiny hunting affect those odds because this is what I find fun for some reason.

Gen 1 has no shinies.

Gen 2 does have shinies. Your odds of a Pokemon you encounter being shiny are based on DVs. DVs are basically the Gen 1 and 2 equivalent of IVs, except instead of going from 0-31, they go from 0-15 (or in binary, which the game uses to calculate DVs, 0000-1111). This is the case for … continue reading

You can’t jump in the car and head down to the hardware store for cement at that point.
