What was your first shiny?
« 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
Anyone got a quarter?

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....
