So lets say I catch a shiny Pokemon in HG or SS. What will happen when I make it the first Pokemon in my party? Will it appear to be shiny or regular colors as it follows me?

thanks guys. +1 each!

Which will get BA :L
It's either Sciz or LTBL. LTBL answered first, but Sciz has more detail and a source. Id go with... ME.

Ok everybody has said yes it does.
Source: Mine is from Bulbapedia >:D
Bulbapedia Shiny Pokemon HG/SS

Shiny Pokémon are again highlighted in Pokémon HeartGold and
SoulSilver, where the red Gyarados makes its return as a plot point,
while Shiny Pokémon also appear in their Shiny state as walking
Pokémon when they follow the player.
