  3. Shiny Castform transforms into the same forms as it's normal form - they're not Shiny or different in any way.
    Castform's default sprite is the only one that appears in different colours.

    That's sort of a drag, they should change that.:(

    Having taken a Game Making class myself, you have to understand all the priciples at work here: For every Pokemon, they have to make a sprite for it. Then for every move it learns, they have to make an action for it. So on and so on for every pokemon out there. Then they have to go back and make every Pokemon have a shiny form and calibrate in the chance of it appearing. I would think it would be too much work, but then again they did it for every other Pokemon....

    Hum... it's like the normal form, every place where it's supposed to be white, it's Yellowish/Orange

    Exactly they did it for every other Pokémon, including Cherrim's sunny form, which is achieved in the same way as Castform's transformations. So it is pretty silly Castform's other forms don't have different shiny sprites.

    Re-read the original post to realise why your post was redundant.

    Stop fighting, everyone, and let some one with gamesardine get a shiny Castform with rain dance, sunny day and hail to confirm if there's shiny forms.

    Edit: This might be wrong:

    (Actually, there is no difference on the last one because there is no white spot on the Ice form)

    No-one's fighting... Gamesardine? o_O Do you mean GameShark?

    And those sprites are wrong. Shiny Castform's transformations don't have differently coloured shiny versions. I can confirm that.

    You got a shiny castform? And you can prove it? (Not that you have a Shiny Castform, that those are wrong)

    Those are the sprites from R/S/E/FR/LG

    Yes, they're R/S/F/L/E's sprites, but the first two which have the yellow tint on them are wrong, as shiny Castform's sunny and rainy forms are identical to the normal ones (have white where there's yellow on those sprites). So I think the person who got those sprites made a colour mistake.

    No, I don't have a shiny Castform ^_^;; I can only wish I did. How I'm able to confirm that is that in the ripped sprites fro R/S/F/L/E, (which basically contains every Pokémon sprite in the respective game) there were no different sprites for Castform's transformations, meaning that other colour versions of them do not exist in the game's programming. This is still the case in D/P. Basically that means that when Castform transforms, shiny or not, the new form will always be the regular ones.

    I was trying to get a Shiny Castfrom/Ditto in Platinum, and got a shiny Pichu instead. I am STILL looking for a shiny Castfrom/Ditto, but now I know that ONLY Castfrom's normal type is shiny, I don't think I really want him any more. :( *Sign*

    Just chain it in D/P/Plat. Easier.
    Well, you need the skills too.
