hold me
Teleport bypasses Mean Look, you imbecile
No, it doesn't.
You should probably make sure you're correct before you go around insulting people, imbecile.
Yes, it does. Stop playing Gen 2.

I have never seen a shiny except the one that I got from chain fishing, which doesn't even count because it felt like cheating

Gen V: Baton pass switchins aren't affected. Volt Switch now exists & works. The two newly introduced ejection moves work.

Gen VI: Ghost types are immune

Stop being retarded.
Still, it doesnt matter because everything after that doesnt change the fact that teleport doesnt bypass mean look
>not just tempting fate by throwing a pokeball at the thing
You have only yourself to blame, my boy.
That's pretty much a guaranteed catch with a quick ball

LMAOing at your life, OP.
Nice trips,
But dind op say he started a new file?
I dont think you can get a quickball this early
I saw shiny smeargle and accidentally switched to my false-swiper on the first turn.

Had to race against time so it wouldn't struggle itself to death

I got it.
Damn, OP I would cry. So sorry to hear man.

It's got a shit nature and one IV at 0 but he'll always be my little nigga. I transferred him all the way into gen 6 too.

I also found a shiny Poochyena in some rom hack before I had any pokeballs but I didn't feel too bad since it was just a rom.
I just caught a shiny Koffing which I aptly nicknamed Cancer
>Dat blue body with purple smonk
Anon, I hate Pomf as much as the next guy, but Serebii doesn't have detailed move mechanics on his site except for a handful of specific moves. In fact I'd argue the move and ability pages are just about the only thing Bulbapedo is good for.

Don't really have a story, but caught my first full-odds shiny yesterday in Emerald. Took 1,602 RE's.
Today I was dicking around my old stuff when I found my old FireRed copy which I haven't played like in 10 years or so.

when I played Gen 5, Bianca ran into a shiny Purrloin and caught it

nothing will ever top playing Crystal as a kid: shiny Caterpie on my way to Mr. Pokemon's house to get the Egg and shiny Sentret when being taught to catch Pokemon

I'm not, nor was I ever, a Gardevoirfag but maaannn, Ralts line is about the only good shinies from Gen 3 (fug is great too). M-Gardevoir is GOAT shiny.

Why don't you RNG abuse?
I bred flawless Timid shiny Rotom in HG. I didn't even need it. Just did it because I could.
Better than letting it get away.

I've told it so many times, but my first ever shiny was in Emerald

Too bad I couldnt use it due to the challenge rules. Still have it on the white 2 cart.
Was playing Platinum, wanted a Cyndaquil, had an Action Replay. Turned on the Pokemon Modifier code, and what the hell, put the always shiny code on too.

Run into a Cyndaquil and... it wasn't shiny. I ran into a Pokemon that would have been shiny if I wasn't cheating. Still wouldn't have been legit since it was a wild Cyndaquil and all, but fuck I still think about it to this day
Himawari was the name I end up getting.

On the opposite side, disregarding Chain Fishing, I've caught a Ponyta and Starly in Diamond, Articuno in Heart Gold after deciding Soft Resetting for an entire week was a good idea, Solosis in White and Trevenant in Y.
Emerald's problem/benefit is that it didn't have actual RNG, and could easily be exploited to guarantee Perfect IV and/or Shiny Pokemon via Eggs and Wilds if you knew what you were doing.

I don't feel too bad about this. I got back into pokemon and have a shiny sandslash now, who is way cooler than that fucker Dustox.
burn in hell
I wouldn't say it''s cheating, it's just cheap. Don't worry as long as injecting exists all pokemon are worthless.
Tried breeding a Walrein to go with my gen 3 Pokemon in Y.

I kept getting the wrong IVs, but eventually I got a shiny. The color wasn't too bad, but purple isn't my favorite color. I recently swapped it for a new shiny.

I push the shiny button on pkhex
No Quick Balls available at that point in the game. I was at one badge.
Shit, nigga you're still on that?

They made a little mistake and now everything they say is unbelievable?
Only shinies I've ever gotten outside of trades or in-game events were a rattata and a zubat. Rattata was in my copy of soul silver which later shit the bed and no longer works, while the zubat was in a romhack. I just have shit luck with shinies.

Meanwhile I have friends who've gotten a shiny houndour, a charmander, and a boldore, along with a few others that I can't remember, but they sure as hell were a sight better than a rattata and a zubat.

i've been playing pokemon since gen 2 and the only shiny pokemon i've found at complete random was a finneon in OR
otherwise it was a relicanth in Y

I got over it pretty quick, didn't know exactly how rare they could be. To this day it's the only shiny I've ever encountered.
How the fuck did it get burned
I should've explained, that's my fault. The only Mon I had on me was a Fletchinder with Flame Body. The ShineShrew hit it.
He probably had a Flame Body Pokemon out front. The same thing happened to me with a horde of Scraggy. I didn't care and was gonna just kill it with my Talonflame, the Shiny Scraggy got burned but had Shed Skin so it healed itself. I thought "Fuck it, if you wanna get caught so bad, fine." and just caught the thing.
He probably had a Pokémon with Flame Body bro
I literally just explained it to him like
flame body
