Default Shiny Starters?

If at the begining I save infront of the machine carrying the three pokeballs containing the starters, when I open the pokeball and the pokemon appears beside me can I tell if its shiny or not.

I'm just not 100% sure, but it'd really cut some time If I knew right away to soft reset or if I have to go check its profile after the long talk with the Professer.

iirc yes, if the Pokemon is shiny, the animation of it appearing beside you will also be shiny (tested with my Smeargle).

If you're asking about if you can save and soft reset right before you open the Pokeballs, yeah. That's how I got my Timid Cydaquil. :o
