Question about Gen.1 shinies?

1 vote

In Gen.1 shininess in a Pokemon was determined by whether it had perfect IV's or not, but does this mean there was a higher chance of encountering a shiny in Gen.1? Or is it there just a 1/8192 chance to find a Pokemon with perfect IVs in Gen.1?

There were no Shinies in Gen I. But in Gen II, there was a way higher chance of finding a Shiny.
