The Shiny Cross-Walk Method: Simple Explanation
Start walking Right -> (if no Pokemon appears turn back) otherwise Run from the Pokemon or K/O it then resume the Walk by pressing Down, keep walking until the next Pokemon appears then turn Left <- then UP. If no Pokemon appears keep walking in a clockwise pattern using only the D-Pad (UP, RIGHT, DOWN, LEFT) until the next Pokemon appears. Repeat this pattern until you run into a Shiny Pokemon.
Using O-Powers is optional.
Illuminate ability is not required. (Optional)
You can run (D-Pad + B) but it decreases the chances of running into a Pokemon.
