Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Shiny Pokemon

The primary difference you will find in them is the shine as well as the fact that they are differently colored. However, the most intriguing thing about them is that they are super rare. You will find one in tens of thousands if you go out looking (1 in 8192), or you could breed them.

Finding Shiny Pokemon

Shiny Charm
While none of the ways guarantee that you will find a Shiny Pokemon, a charm always increases the possibility. Capture all 718 Pokemon and Professor Birch will reward you with a Key Item – you very own Shiny Charm.

Masuda Method
Another way of increasing your chances to find a Shiny Pokemon is to breed two Pokemon of different language games. This will improve the possibility of finding a Shiny Pokemon by six times (1 in 1366).

Fishing Rod Chaining
This one is easy, just go fishing with one of the fishing rods and then stand your ground. When you start a battle from fishing, it will enhance your chance at catching a Shiny Pokemon.

In order for the Fishing Rod Chaining to work, you will need to stay within the space you are in. Two abilities, namely Suction Cups and Sticky Hold will help you with landing a Pokemon if the lead Pokemon has these abilities.
