You just lost the Shiny!

Back to my comedy roots now, so I decided to share these hilarious videos relating to failure to obtain a Shiny Pokemon.

Finding a Shiny... BEFORE you have Poke Balls.

Thankfully, this never happened to me but I know someone might have experienced this. Have you ever failed to get a Shiny for reasons like this?

    Nope, I've luckily caught every random shiny that I've encountered. :) Except one time, I thought I saw a shiny Lillipup, but killed it. I don't really count that cause I always look at Lillipup and think "uhhh did I miss the shiny animation?" so yeah haha. But I've never lost one to these awful circumstances.

    You forgot shiny Pokemon running away in the Safari Zone btw!

    I'm not even playing that and I feel the urge to throw my laptop at the wall because of all of the rage. AAAAARRRRGGGGH! I'm cool...

    EDIT: Oh, I forgot. The only time a shiny has ever died on me was when I was RNGing, but I try again and catch it eventual. YAY FOR RNG ABUSE! \o/

    I never got any loss of shiny Pokemon through that way, but I did lose a Shiny Tentacruel chance due to...a critical hit, a hit that killed, or I just ran away.

    Nope. As for the Exploding ones? I usually save my Master Ball for that sort of thing since I dont like to actually catch legendaries with them unless shiny themselves or roamers. I had a close call with one and I caught it with my only PokeBall . The only time Ive ever KOed shinies is when I derped while chaining and KOed chained ones found in Shiny Patches. Im extremely cautious with that sort of thing. If the Zigzagoon that is harrassing Professor Birch in Emerald counts Ive seen that one twice.

    I lost a shiny Mightyena because it used roar before I could do anything in Emerald. ;_;

    Was going to comment on this about a month ago, but I couldn't for the life of me find the picture I wanted to add- until today. I'm glad this only happened on a ROM, as I might have thrown my GBA at the wall if it was on my actual game.
