There's a 1 in 8192 chance of catching a shiny Pokemon, or if you have a shiny Pokemon and breed it with a Ditto, you get a shiny Pokemon out of the egg. A yellow (or gold) Magikarp is a different colour to the normal Magikarp and hence is classified 'shiny'. As said above, there is a large chance that you will not encounter one. However, there are three ways to get a shiny Magikarp. 1) Keep on using an Old Rod over water and hope for a shiny Magikarp 2) Trade for a shiny Magikarp 3) Use a cheat device such as an Action Replay or Gameshark to get one

or u could just download vba and type in the cheat XD
