    Uhh...how would these work?
    Would it be that When you see their picture for the first time, it would show them as shiny, or does it work in another manner.:confused:

    o_O;; Shiny legendaries work the same as any other shiny. I know someone that ran into shiny latias, though afterward his game crashed before he could save after catching her.

    i think that the pokemon that run have their natures, IV's, and whether or not they are shiny set when you start the game and they cant be changed.

    ^ In D/P, they are set when you talk to them. I'm not sure if their picture when you talk to then will be shiny if they are shiny, though.

    No, they don't have the natures set when you start the game; I was able to go through nearly all the natures when I was catching an articuno, started with modest, but was still able to get the nature I wanted, calm.

    We're talking about the legends that run around, not the ones you just walk up to and fight.:thumb:

    Save before you talk to them, then talk to them and go find them. If not shiny then reset.

    Yeah, just do what Pablo said. There is a chance that you'll get it within one of your over 8000 attempts. Good luck. And if you do find one, hope that it is a good nature and has nice IVs lol.

    Yes, that leads into one of the most amusing stories I have. See, I did exactly what Mew just said. I spent three weeks of soft-resetting trying to get a Shiny Dialga. I did. I failed to catch it. So I repeated the process. I found one again. After four months this time. The first time I was just lucky. Don't ask me why, but I really wanted this shiny Dialga. I caught it. It's IVs sucked. It's nature bit. I didn't care. People started pwning me. So here is the moral of my story: don't worry about getting shinies. Worry about getting good IVs and Natures. End of story.

    Yah yet people love some of the shinies.
    Back in G/S/C it was based on great IV's.

    Actually back in GSC it was based on having "meh" IV's. Back then when a Pokemon was shiney it was because all of its IV's were set to 10. Not great, but not the worst...
