Like any other Pokémon game, Shiny Pokémon are sought by many for either their different coloration and/or just for collection.
The game follows Generation V shiny probability of 1/8192 (0.012%) in the wild and static encounters, when obtaining the Shiny Charm the rate changes to 3/8192 (about 1/2731 0.036%).
By the latest update 1.2 the rate is increased for hatching eggs due to the Masuda method not working in the game to 1/4096 (0.024%) with the Shiny Charm in hand the rate is changed to 3/4096 (about 1/1365 0.073%), and with the introduction of DexNav you can increase the rate for catching shiny Pokémon in the wild to 1/768 (0.13%), with the Shiny Charm acquired the rate is changed to 3/768 (about 1/256 0.39%).
Note: In Insurgence, Dexnav doesn't have chaining, it's a flat rate that applies for each encounter when scanned through dexnav. This means that even if you leave the area, the rate isn't affected.
