Wanted to shiny hunt before the first gym so just wondering. Also, if there isn't any double grass, should I beat the gym leader first to increase the odds with double grass instead of regular random encounters to get a shiny? (what would you do?)

There is no double patches available before the first gym. Your chances of finding a shiny are never increased by the amount of badges you have too.

Source: I have shiny hunted myself, and I have played Black 2.

Thanks for the info. I meant that if you beat the first gym and have access to the double grass, which means you can get encounters faster. It wouldn´t significantly increase the shiny odds, but can lower the time of finding one.
Double Grass increses the speed of encounters, which makes it easier to hunt, so ye, I understand you :p
