My first non-scripted Shiny was a gold Geodude in Mt. Moon at Silver. Little POS blew himself up before I could catch him.

The first Shiny I actually caught was a Slowpoke in X. I traded him for a Shiny Glalie, who was then traded for a Meloetta. Good times.

the thing about shiny regice is this, this is his shiny you can barely spot the fucking difference
so you barely notice if you get him or not if your soft resetting without sound and not paying attention
I soft resetted 1277 times and I was doing this in the middle of a lecture and when it happend
I kicked my desk so hard when I shat myself with excitement

Oddish in Silver.
Because of the darker Pallet in the 2nd gen games, it's appeared black with gold leaves.

In later gens, they made it slightly more greenish, which kinda ruined the look in my opinion.

My first shiny was a Whismur.

I didn't even realize it was shiny. I wasn't looking at the screen when it showed up, and the coloration isn't very different. I caught it anyway, just trying to fill up my Pokedex.

Surprised when I realized it was shiny. Evolved it into an Exploud. Its stats weren't amazing, but it wasn't shit. Just wish it wasn't a garbage type like Normal.

i guess this is a good thread to bring it up but do any of you have balltism?
for me is that every legendary i catch must be in a timerball

HOLD THE FUCK UP

-328 F to K is 73.15 Kelvins.

That means it's 73 Kelvins away from absolute zero, even if the pokemon is in an isolated environment, the air would be frozen solid would be liquid, unable to breathe.

Then I got a Shiny Wingull trying to get a Chimecho. I got another puke-colored pokemon before finding a fucking Chimecho.
Then I got an Onyx in my Leaf Green version on Victory road, nice it was Gold and Steelix looked awesome.
Then I got another fucking Grimer on my Fire Red version, again on the pokemon mansion. Here I began to suspect the timer had something to do, since I got two shinies at the same point coursing through the game, around the 24 hour clock mark

Never had a shiny pokemon before, despite playing most games as they came out, aside from ruby/saph. Decide I'm going to get a shiny of one of my favorites, Shinx in pearl.

I spent nearly 3 weeks in my spare time chaining for a god damn shinx with the radar thing, could never master the radar and went home defeated.

Give up, start new file. Name my character Shinx, cause fuck it. Recieve pokeballs, head out and my very first encounter was a shiny shinx. Named that mother fucker Shinx and leveled her up to level 100 into a Luxray named Shinx.

I shit you not, is still my favorite virtual possession and is rocking it out in my xy with a couple of shinys I got it that game.

Fridge brilliance:

Farfetch'd was rare in gen 1 because it was hunted to near-extinction.

Farfetch'd ceases to be rare in later games, because they added breeding. Players took a near-extinct species and bred it back to its former glory.

Breeding shinies is fairly easy in Gen 6, you could probably knock one out in under 30 hours if you tried. It has the added benefit of having near perfect stats too.

Shinies haven't really been "rare" since gen 4, since that's when they added chaining.

I mean don't get me wrong, chaining for shinies is still an accomplishment. It's something that takes practice and dedication. But it's the difference between spending a few hours, and a few hundred hours.

Did you somehow miss the highly visible sparkling effect every time you send it into battle?

The first time I caught a shiny, I kept getting into battles and running away, just so I could watch that sparkle. Like, my brain refused to accept that I actually caught a shiny; I needed clear visual confirmation.

Shiny Geodude was my first shiny back in Gold as well.
I needed it for rock smash if I recall, and didn't realize it was a shiny till much later cause when I caught it, I wasn't in a well lit room and didn't notice the sparkles.

Ironically, I didn't get another shiny pokemon naturally until playing Soul Silver, a shiny zubat.

I named her Olive cause of the green color and pinkish wings. Loved that little shit.

I don't even know what the fuck a shiny Pokemon is. I had shiny NHL cards.

Replace "altruistic" for "autistic". There are people who get mad when their shinies aren't 5IV and release them/wonder trade them.

I haven't experienced Pokerus either. Also I developed an attachment to a Shuppet with sassy nature and named her a male name by mistake
>Retard younger me stunted her growth because I didn't like Bayonette
>She's max level and can barely take on lvl. 60s without Curse

I messed every possible thing I could up.

Did any of you guys have a favorite Pokemon you took around despite it being terrible?

Same concept, except you waste hundreds of hours instead of dollars.

>>291086836
Little kids and newbies who don't realize shiny pokemon are rare is my guess.

Pokerus chance is 1 in 21,000, it's not hard to believe he's never seen it. I've only got it because a kind soul wondertraded me an obama with it.

Well so much for competitive.

I read up on the signs to look for (or at least read to be aware of what the nurse says).

You're probably right.

>>291087451
I've seen 4 shinies over the years and only got pokerus once back in fucking silver

It's a rare (about 1 in 8000) color variation. Shiny pokemon are a different color, and sparkle when you summon them into battle... and that's it. They're not more powerful, they don't have any special abilities or anything, it's just a cosmetic difference. They're valued ONLY for their rarity, in most cases.
