Assuming that you catched the Red Gyarados, did you use it in your team or did you leave it to rot in the PC? For both scenarios, why? Do you like having shinies on your team? Maybe you already had a Gyarados? Perhaps it didn't fit the 'motif' of your team? Perhaps yopu were dong a challenge and it just wasn't right?

I left mine to rot in the PC unfortunately. I mainly just enslaved it, using it for HM's -- waterfall and surf.

What about YOU?

Even though I caught Red Gyarados, I left him in the PC cos I don't care about using shinies on my team.

Also, I already had a Golduck on my team when I got to the Lake of Rage so I really didn't need another Water-type Pokemon.

Yeah I had a Tentacruel so there was no need for Gyarados. I think it might've been a Waterfall slave, but that's it.

It depends on the rest of my team. Usually no because they rest of my team is usually a higher level than that.

Nope. I never trained the Red Gyarados before. On the original or on HGSS. I've usually have the pokemon I'm surfing on at the part of the game.

Left mine in my PC, too. Poor thing. I did use it for Surf, Whirlpool and Waterfall occasionally though, particularly Whirlpool because Dragon's Den made me.

Anyway, I've caught a legitimate shiny in the same game and I didn't use it (granted it was just a Rattata), so I don't see why I would use a forced shiny either. :(

The red Gyarados was unique enough that I wanted to keep it on my team, but only as an HM slave. I believe I had it know Surf, Waterfall, Whirlpool, and I think Strength? Either way, I think I only battled with it once or twice, and that was because I used it to stall while I healed my other Pokemon.

Yep, since my starter was Cyndaquil, I didn't have a water type Pokemon until Gyarados. It helped me alot in the battle against Lance

Nope :(. Although it was a shiny, in my eyes it was just your ordinary blue Gyarados. Since everyone got it when they went through the storyline, it wasn't a Pokemon that I treasured and loved. I never liked Gyarados anyway so I dumped it straight into the PC and only brought it out for HM business. Surfing, clambering up waterfalls, surfing across whirlpools and pushing boulders with Strength.

I also had a water-type already, so I didn't find it necessary to have another one join the team. But at least the Red Gyarados got to see some light after being captured ;).

Mine I believe was left in the PC to rot, sadly. Had it on the original maxed out and only switched it in and out of the PC when I needed to. On HG, I vaguely believe I left it in the PC, already had a somewhat other good water type with another type, in which I can't remember what it was.

Mine's did too. I most likely would have lost if I hadn't captured it.

On Heartgold I used Feraligatr
On Soulsilver I made a Dragon-ish team and I egged Charmander to replace my starter
and bought a Dratini from gamecorner and got a larvitar form Safari Zone so I thought Gyarados will be a good addiion

Usually I don't use it, either because I already have a water type or because I don't feel confortable with using a red gyarados for battle. (I prefer it blue)

Yup, I have. If I picked Cyndaquil for my starter, I will purposely not raise a water Pokemon in my team and save that spot for when I catch that powerhouse. I personally can't resist shiny and strong Pokemon no matter how I get it, so the Red Gyarados is definitely not an exception. But if my starter is Totodile, I will definitely catch it, but it won't be a member in my team. Two water-types do not strengthen any team.

I normally just kill it off to annoy my nephew. He's all like, "OMG A SHINY POKEMON YOU HAS TO CATCH IT!!1!!!11" and then I'm like, "Lolnope." It's fun to annoy him.

Even if I did choose to catch it once, I wouldn't use it. I used it once before when I had Chikorita as a starter, and I really don't like using pokemon more than once. (I'm odd like that.)

I used him, I like Gyarados a lot. I did box him for my second play through, but I kept Gyarados and leveled him up to about 80-100. IMO he's really good ever since he was overhauled in gen IV.

I use him mainly because he is a Shiny Pokemon and because you are required to battle him to advance the story, so I might as well catch it and use it.

Well, I try to use shinies, but it was either Gyarados or my starter, so gyarados rotting is going on.
