Finally, when you manage to capture all the Pokémon in the National Pokédex (not counting event legends) and show it to Cedric Juniper, he will tell you his daughter has a present for you. This present is the special Shiny Charm. This item increases the likelihood that you will encounter Shiny Pokémon. When you have the item in your bag, then the chances of encountering Shiny Pokémon in the wild is increased to 33% of normal, making it a 1 in 2,370.6 chance. If, however, you\'re using the Masuda Method to breed, it increases it from 1 in 1,365.3 down to 1 in 1024.Awesome right?If you couldnt get the charm,then ultimateflygon has ur answer.

The chances of getting a shiny in the wild is 1/8912. Not 1/1000000. That would be way too hard. There is also a thing called the Masuda Merhod where you breed with 2 Pokemon from diffrent countries and the breeded Pokemon has a 4X greater chance of being shiny.
