I just restarted my fire Red game with a Admadent Charmander. As I went to catch a Spearow on the route with the Elite 4 on it.( not Victory road, the one attached to vireden City) I saw a Shiny Rattata! I caught it, and it's jollly. My question is, I once read in a game book that you could olny catch shiny pokemon after you defeat the elite 4. Is my game gliched? Because I did not have any badges! I wish I could show you a pic, but I don't have a camera that can do this.
