What's the chance of getting a shiny starter Pokemon?

I'm just interested.

Because I was searching through shiny sprites and I wondered: I've never seen a shiny starter Pokemon. I wonder how to get one.

Like any other normal Shiny Pokemon. It's a 1 in 8,192 chance.
Of course, you can always breed as well, but if you want an actual, pure starter Pokemon you'll have to do it at the start of the game. The Masuda Method is still there to help you.

If you don't know what the Masuda Method is it's just you breed two Pokemon from two different-language games and the chances lower. But even then, it's still a 1 in 2000 chance.

Hope I helped. :)

It's the same as any regular Pokemon. A 1/8192 chance. To obtain one will require a: luck, b: a lot of effort, or c: hacking.

A: maybe you'll get lucky and receive a shiny starter, or find someone willing to trade you one.

B: You could breed starter Pokemon until you hatch a shiny one (it is recommended you use the Musada method when doing this)

C: Hack, or use one of the Pokemon creation websites or apps, such as pokegen or Pokebuilder

Hope this helps
