Title: What was your first shiny?
Post by: HiddenShadow on June 10, 2010, 02:11:48 pm
I ran into my first shiny guys. It's a diarrhea colored onyx. XD But man, I was so excited! lol I caught it and everything and now it collects dust in a random box where I totally ignore it. Now I patiently await running into a shiny of a pokemon I want.

So, guys...What was your first shiny? Hopefully, it was better than mine, unless you absolutely love nasty colored onyx...Then...uh...I hope you catch one...I guess. lol

Was that just recently? If so, congratulations! Not including the Red Gyarados, I remember mine was in late 2004 or so, after Pokémon Firered came out in Europe. It was a shiny Yanma which I just ran into by chance in Sevault Canyon, I didn't have any Pokémon that could weaken it without fainting the Yanma so I had to throw some Ultra Balls at it whilst it was at full health (I had about 15 or so) and hope for some luck, I had about 6 balls or so left when I then captured it. When the news about Pokémon Diamond and Pearl came and the 'mini-sprites' of each Pokémon got leaked it was then I trained that same Yanma to about level 75 or so until eventually sending it to Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Unfortunately, the Yanma was of a Lonely nature so it wasn't so good for use in competitive battling. It was also at a time when I was too hesitant to EV train, so it isn't that good, I'm sometimes really lucky with hypnosis though.

Prior to that, I ran into a Shiny Poliwag in late 2002 but I was quite nooby then and didn't realise how rare Shiny Pokémon were. I defeated it, thinking that I would get a (hypothetical) Blue Scale lol.

My first shiny was in the Battle Frontier. It was a Magmar.

I did find a shiny in the wild though, in Iron Island. It was a Graveler. Unfortunately, I had Riley with me, so it was a double battle, making it uncatchable.

The first shiny other than Gyarados I encountered was Quagsire in Silver. It ran away before I could catch it....:'(

A Tentacool in FireRed. Good thing I transferred it to Pearl before my FireRed was stolen.

Lol, scary coincidence with Torchickens. My first shiny was a shiny Poliwag too! It was in Crystal version near Mt.Silver. It wasn't a different color, just some sparkles, but I caught it! My Crystal save is permanently damaged though, since I was a N00B *smacks head* and USED A FREAK'N GAMESHARK to do some codes. Never ever ever ever x googolplex use a gameshark outside of emulation! *sigh* With that aside, I saw another non-colored shiny in FireRed, this time a Pidgeotto close to Fuchia city. It used whirlwind before I could get it though O_o! I have not seen any other non-event shinies since.

My first shiny was a Chinchou (i think thats the spelling) The bad news is that it was burned in a fire, stupid brother, but i was able to get another and i still have one on each of my games along with the red garyados.

I've never encountered a legit shiny yet. My friend hacked me a Shiny Ninetales before and I got a hacked Shiny Charmander from the GTS.
I'm still waiting for my fateful wild encounter. But, I gave my friend a Gible and he hatched another shiny Gible from it while trying to get the right nature.
So I decided to start hatching Vulpix's in an attempt at a legit shiny Ninetales. <3 I've gotten way over 6 boxes and just started releasing them as they hatched.

Other than the Red Gyarados, my first shiny was a Shiny elekid in  one of the second gen games, from that egg the day-care couple gices you.  I never trained it though....

My first shiny IIRC was a Golbat I caught in Victory Cave on Pokemon Sapphire. I forgot what happened to it.

My first? Shiny Wingull, at around 2 AM on February 14, 2005 on Ruby. Trained it to a Pelipper Lv.77 in no time (sadly I didn't know about EV training at the time), then left it sitting there for years.
I also have a shiny Raticate on Silver, a shiny Electabuzz from the GTS, and a hacked shiny Dialga from the GTS (Brocco Guy hacked whatever the dude wanted and then traded it to me).

Everybody is getting games stolen! I've caught the red gyrados too. But anyone can get it, so it doesn't feel as special as it should. Poor shiny gyrados. It's just not as special as it should be. XD My brother ran into his first shiny the other day. It was a tentacruel. I laughed. It was just as lame as my onyx (which would be cooler if I could actually evovle the darn thing). I told him to use some move against it, and he didn't. He chose a more powerful move and KO'd it. Then he got mad at me because it was my fault he didn't catch it because I was hovering over his shoulder. *Sighs* But it seems like in SS and HG the shiny pokemon are easier to run into than in the others seeing as me and my bro each found one, so hopefully anyone with the game has a good bit of luck and finds something better than the pokemon you get sick of running into. XD

I ran into a Shiny Drowzee at level 12 in the route north of Goldenrod City...This was in HeartGold. The time was 2:44 P.M., and I was getting bored of finding something interesting to catch. Then, BAM!, pink Drowzee appears. Just so happens I had plenty of Great Balls on hand, or else I might not have it now.

I've never had a shiny Ditto, so what you're saying is, when it transforms, it becomes the shiny of the Pokemon it transforms? Cool.
Title: Re: What was your first shiny?
Post by: krutomisi on June 28, 2010, 02:16:09 pm
Yep, it transforms into a shiny version of whatever it's transforming into

It is a tad bit off color like ditto always is, but it's still cool

Mine was a Zigzagoon.  It's now a Linoone in my Heartgold.  Of course, I can't tell which of my shiny Linoone was that particular Zigzagoon, I have four of them, you see.

I encountered a shiny Unown (S) ... in my friend's Diamond. When I yelled at him "OMG! SHINY UNOWN!" he immediantly snatched the DS and caught it himself. It then went into the Unown box and stayed there. At least I caught all of the Unowns for him.

My first shiny besides the Red Gyarados? Well, I'd have to say a Silver Tentacool. But I don't even know if I really saw that. I just remember being really... loopy @.@

Shiny Ralts in Emerald, raised it to a Lv63(ish) Gardevoir (F) named, quite imaginatively, Sana.  Then my Emerald went through the washer and, assuming it was ruined, I threw it away.

GBA games actually are quite capable of surviving the washer. Too bad that happened :/

First shiny I found was a machop in the cave east of ecruteak city in pokemon gold. Strange story, I had never used flash to light a cave until then and I thought the sparkle was doing the flash animation because I had used it to light the cave.

lololololololololol
