The Shiny Pokemon Of X And Y [PHOTOS]: Will Shinies Be Easier To Find?
By Staff Writer | October 12, 2013 10:06 AM EDT
Pokemon X and Y are officially released, and photos of the first sightings of shiny Pokemon are surfacing.
For those who do not know, shiny Pokemon are extremely rare Pokemon with alternate coloration, and has been a part of the franchise since Gold and Silver.

As of Black 2 and White 2, the encounter rate of a shiny Pokemon is roughly 1/8192. Using the Masuda method (breeding two Pokemon from different countries of origin), this goes up to 1/1365 in Generation V.
Some of the shiny Pokemon that have been seen and posted online include Greninja and Meowstic, and X and Y fans can really see the color differences through Poke-Amie.
But the question has been raised about whether it is any easier to find shiny Pokemon in X and Y.
"I don't know who it was, but someone from Gamefreak said that shiny Pokemon will be easier to obtain through a new method (I think). I think it was Junichi Masuda who said that, but I'm not sure," writes Troublesome Treec on Pokejungle.
So far, very little information or confirmation has been made regarding whether shiny Pokemon is in fact easier to find in X and Y, or even whether the Masuda method is still in effect.
But one thing is for sure, fans are just as fanatical and intrigued by shiny Pokemon now that we have 3D incarnations as ever before.
"I'm thinking about getting a shiny Chespin but does it really take that long to get a shiny by resetting it every time you choose a Pokemon...?" asks TkShot on Marriland.
"I might. I mean, it will be faster than before since you don't have to turn on/off your system anymore. But I might not have the patience," adds jedinat.
What do you think? Will you attempt to find shiny Pokemon in X and Y?
