Question Am I Doing This Right? (URGENT)

I started a new game in my Leaf Green, and I'm trying to get a shiny Charmander as my starter. Here's what I've done:
- Saved right in front of the Charmander on the desk in Oak's lab.
- Click 'A'.
- If it's not shiny, I soft reset.
- Repeat.

I think I'm just unlucky, since I have done this so many times and haven't encountered a shiny Charmander on his desk, but I wanted to make sure I was doing this right.

Sorry, that was really irrelevant.

Can anyone confirm that what I'm doing will *eventually* get me a shiny Char?

Yeah, you can. That's where all the shiny Squirtles, Bulbasaurs, and Charmanders come from - if you ever got one from someone on Wi-Fi and looked at it's summary carefully. Same goes for all starters. For example, I got a shiny Turtwig from someone and it says 'Met at Lv. 5 Lake Verity'. (Might have spelled 'Verity' wrong. XD)

Also you should expand your trading pokemon, you only have 5 up to trade and your asking for a shiny!

That's horrible! Dx
I gave up on the shiny Charmander. I have s hiny Charizard in D/P, but in PBR it was transferred as a bad egg, so I wanted another one. XD I realized I was being a little selfish...

Well, sad news.

The percentage of getting a shiny is practically a million to 1. So, keep trying. Don't hold your breath.

I heard somewhere that when you select the starter you will see what gender it is like male or female and you give it an opposite name.(eg.Male-give girl name,female-give boy name.Might be trainer.) I also heard that if you spell the pokemon's name a certain way like all lower case letters or one if it's move it will be a shiny.(This has worked for Pokemon Stadium, but I don't know if it will work for FireRed/LeafGreen.

Exclamation Re: Am I Doing This Right? (URGENT)

Well, we ALL know that shinys are SO RARE. I think you aren't accepting it and then going into "PARTY PKMN" and see then. Otherwise, I think action replays and gamesharks are available. It will be this coluor but it's a DP sprite:


Hope I helped.

Here is the link to what I said about naming the pokemon a certain way like all lower case. It shows a regular Pikachu and two Pikachu's that are shiny because they were named a certain way. Scroll down on the link to see. This may say google images, but it is connected to a website that explains about getting shiny pokemon.
