I had a 6v6 shiny battle, and my friend had six shinies that I couldn't capture. This happened twice, actually.

No. In FR/LG, the shinies in the Trainer Tower are always there.

Also, no trainer Pokémon can be shiny except in the Battle Tower/Frontier.

I've actually never seen a shiny that's from another trainer, though i'd probably turn the game off and then battle someone completly different >=)
That would teach them to have shiny pokemon when i don't :(

In my whole life of playing any Advanced Generation games, I've never seen a trainer who has a shiny Pokémon. That, or I can't tell the diffference between a shiny and a normal-colored Pokémon. XD

Pingouin_7 is right. The only trainers with shiny Pokemon are all in the battle tower/battle frontier. No other trainers have, or ever will have, shiny Pokemon.

I guess at the beginning of the game before you get your Pokéballs.

And in every Firered/leafgreen there are 2 shinies in the Battle tower.

I didn't know that there were shinies programmed into the Battle Tower, I thought it was just bad luck. XD

Well once I found a shiny Psyduck, but had no Pokeballs.

Already said: No trainer except the ones at battle tower/frontier have shinies.

I saw shinies only at Battle tower in FRLG. I had a shiny venusaur(FR) and a shiny Mightyena once(Emerald).

I think someone had a shiny in the Battle Tower on my Crystal game, it's been a very long time since I last played but I think it was a shiny Smeargle. As far a shiny's go, I haven't had that much luck with them but I did hatch a shiny Pichu once. Most frustrating is when you find a shiny that turns out to be a Tentacool, or a Pokemon which you just would never use.

The Poochyena line is full of jerks. >:C I found a shiny Mightyena in my Emerald and it Roar'd away before I could catch it. I was so annoyed. XD;

But something like your situation happened to a friend of mine once in Gold version--she ran into a shiny Hoothoot on the way from Newbark Town to... the second town. So before pokéballs. :( That would suck SO hard.

Same thing happened to me except it was a Delibird and I didn't have any pokeballs on me.

Well I saw a shiny Espeon. Can't remember where, but I was against twins. One had a normal Jolteon, and the other had a shiny Espeon. It annoyed me greatly. :'(

I've seen a Meowth, Espeon and i can't remember well but was it an... Entei? I can't remember too well but I recall them being in a rather entralling type of battle tower in Emerald. I loved them musical tiles in there :3

I once ran into a shiny Pidgey in Firered, too bad I didn't have any poke balls and my team would've accidentally KO'ed it anyway.

I caught a shiny poocheyna after getting pokeballs right after you exit the second town.
I saw a shiny metagross... T.T

Yeah I REALLY wish I could've caught that shiny Espeon from that person in Trainer Tower!

Speaking of uncatchable shinies, wouldn't that be bad if you saw a shiny pokemon right at the very beginning of the game before you got any pokeballs to capture with? If you were just randomly walking, and encountered a shiny?! That would stink!

I saw a Shiny Charmeleon :t005: once in Hoenn's Battle Factory, as well as a Shiny Kingdra :t230: in Hoenn's Battle Tower during a Multi Battle (both occurrences were in Emerald). If I see a Shiny Rental Pokemon, I'm renting it!! :D

But I'm always scared that I might temporarily start a new game, and somehow stumble upon a Shiny, where I can't catch it without deleting my actual save file. :( Uncatchable Shinies are the worst!
