I have found one shiny Pokemon so far in diamond it is meditite. Is it possible to find another different shiny like a ponyta but in the same area? Or do I have to look in a brand new area?
Yes, it is possible to find more than one shiny of any Pokemon in one area, although it it rare to get a shiny in the first place it is still possible to get more than one in the same area in any game.
Hope This Helped!
