Still the standard 1/8192 chance for any Pokemon. Unless you use the masuda method or shiny charm. Either way you still dont have high chanses of getting one.

Some ways:

  • Seeing it in the wild; a 1/8192 chance of doing so. The Shiny Charm increases this chance to 1/2730.
  • By breeding and hatching an Egg. Same chance as above, unless Masuda method improves it to 1/1366. This will stack with the Shiny Charm providing the highest chance in Gen V; 1/1024.
  • By trading, migrating and transferring the Pokemon from other games. Since Purrloin is from Gen V, only trading is necessary from those three.

Obviously, your chances are extremely low - your friend was lucky to find that Purrloin.

Go to Route 19 or 20 and hope for the best, that is all you can do. You can
also maybe use Masuda or maybe Oval or Shiny I can not remember, charm.
