Ever had that rare moment in any of your Pokemon Games, where a shiny Pokemon pops up? You get all excited about catching it then some how a critical hit comes in and kills it? Or maybe if it's something like a Voltorb or Graveler, self destructs killing your chances.

I remember encountering a Shiny Graveler and totally freaking out. Just when I thought I was about to catch it, it self-destructed >. After that I threw my DS at the wall, that was a bad idea .

Anyway, what was or would be your reaction if this happened?
Would you rage, scream or just get over it and forget about it completely?

I've never killed a Shiny myself (except for the Red Gyarados in GSC but I don't think that matters) but I think I would immediately turn off the game xD

That has never happened to me, but if it did I would probably swear and then put my game down for a good 5 minutes and think about what just happened.

Don't worry, I totally understand. Something like that happened when I was little. I encountered a shiny Ryhorn on Victory Road in Pokémon Gold. I made my Feraligatr use Surf on it, and it fainted. I wasn't the brightest 7-year old.

I also encountered a shiny Wingull once at the start of Pokémon Sapphire, before I fought Landon. So I couldn't catch Pokémon yet. I had to defeat it, and I cried myself to sleep afterwards.

I never KOed a shiny, but by chance, I once ran across a shiny Poochyena in Emerald. I was very very happy. Then it used Roar.
What you feel at this very moment is... Indefinable. You want to throw your console with all your might against the closest wall. And shout. And jump out the window. But, I was personnally too shocked, too surprised to do anything like this. It was a disillusion. I just didn't move for a while, waiting this absolute disgust to go... And then I continue to train my Pokémon.

Depends on whether it's a species I care about. If it is, cue screaming, pulling out of hair, and throwing my DS across the room. Especially if a dreaded critical hit was to blame.

But if it's something I don't care for, I'll just shrug it off and move on. I've got enough shinies, and they're mostly collecting dust because their natures aren't conducive to battling.

Well, I was pretty angry that I couldn't catch a Shellder on Silver when my PC box was full, so I just got really angry and shut off my Gameboy. Didn't play it for a while after that, silly young Lapras.

It's never happened to me, but this face would likely sum up how I'd feel:



(Of course, once I get my sucky Windows emulator working on here again I could always use PokeGen + Pokecheck to get me a shiny of the one I accidentally KOed :B)

My reaction will probably involve a lot of expletives and DS parts strewn everywhere.

I generally always have a Pokemon with false swipe in my team for this exact reason and i generally just trade a master ball over at the start of my journey to avoid this accident so in saying that i have never killed a shinny.

I would feel absoultely awful if this ever happened to me. I had the unfortunate opportunity of seeing a Shiny Paras in the Safari Zone and not being able to catch it, so I know how it feels to let one get away (also seeing the old man in Fire Red catch a shiny Weedle nearly made me punch a hole in the wall).

Since then, I've always had the policy that I would never use my Master Ball for any sort of legendary Pokemon, as they can be saved in front of and caught in a different type of ball with a little effort. The Master Ball is always reserved for if I ever see a shiny. Thought it would be better to be prepared then not, and my plan finally worked when I instantly caught a shiny Ducklett the other day. Granted, I probably could have caught it in something else, but if it had been a Shiny Voltorb or something, at least I would have been prepared.

Not saying that this is necessarily the best idea as shinies come up so infrequently, but it never hurts to be ready.
