There's a 1/8192 chance of getting a shiny pokemon, lol.

Any shiny achievement SHOULD include Red Gyarados... otherwise STFU there's no way MOST people will ever get it.

Impossible to fully clear the game, catch 'em all does not account for stone usage and tracks the capture of Ninetails, impossible to obtain in this game.

Friendly word of advice - don't bother with smeargle and gen 2 sketch for your catching pokemon. Use Parasect instead.

@KingOfHarts for the shiny you can get an easy one with the first egg you receive, you have 1/16 to have a shiny due to his IVs
