How do you catch a shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Diamond?

Getting a Shiny Pokemon in Diamond

You can trade for a shiny Pokemon in Diamond

You can catch a shiny in the wild, but it is very rare. You could trade for a shiny as well, but you would usually need something really good.

You can also hatch a shiny pokemon. While this does not make your chances any better, it still works.

you could also, if you wanted to, use a cheating device. I do not recommend doing this, since there is a chance it could ruin your game. Especially if you have a bad code.
