The ONLY shiny pokemon I've ever seen in the wild is a Ralts. Do you want to know where? It was the one Wally caught in Emerald. You heard me. I had to fight a shiny Gardevoir the rest of the game. I wanted to cry when I saw that thing.
What's your worst experience with a shiny Pokemon?
Just for the record, I challenge anyone to come up with anything worse than what happened to me. Hahahaha.

I booted up my first Gen II game...

Ran into a shiny Hoothoot, had no Pokèballs, didn't realized what I had missed.
It was soul-crushing when I realized that I adored Noctowl...

The first shiny I saw in Gen V was Krokorok. I ran out of Pokéballs to catch it with.

But, shiny Krokorok is butt ugly anyway.

This can apply to more than RSE/FRLG, and people are answering with non-3rd gen games anyway, so off to PGC this goes.

I myself haven't had a bad shiny incident. ;3

I haven't had any bad shiny experiences. I've caught all the shinies I found and any shinies I lost it was because I restarted the game (my Gold) or I lost the game (My Silver). But that's pretty much it.

My worst shiny experience is when I met a shiny Stantler. I was RNG abused the two roamers Raikou and Entei. I'm about to RNG a Latios, then this shiny stantler comes up. Seriously, right after I caught my RNGed Raikou just to test if i get it right . I ended up catching both raikou and entei and could not rng my latios at all since if I want to RNG it, i need both raikou and entei.

My shiny experience isn't as bad as some other people's, but here we go:
I'd played Pokemon for years and never run into shinies. I started "hunting" (at that time I got tired after 20 soft resets lol!), and tried what I thought was really hard to get a shiny for a couple of weeks. That weekend, my friend who played pokemon ran into a random Shiny Zubat, and the next day ran into a Shiny Clefairy!
That's not even it - I was using my sister's Diamond version, when I ran into a Shiny Girafarig! But... my sister wouldn't let me keep it.

You have heard stories like this all over the internet I guess, but I'll tell it anyway: one of the only two shiny Pokémon I've met was a Graveler, who used Selfdestruct right away.

I've never had any bad shiny experiences but the first shiny I caught was a Dewgong...and shiny Dewgong are barely any different than the non-shiny ones.

It was a shiny Hoothoot in Eterna Forest in Platinum, but I was with that girl with the Chansey so two wild Pokémon appeared at the same time. Stupid girl KOed the Pokémon I attacked, and my Pokémon attacked the Hoothoot instead, killing it.

What's your worst experience with a shiny Pokemon?

Challenge accepted. First time playing Ruby, my first pokemon game. I beat May and was returning to the lab when all of a sudden. Shiny Poochyena, first wild I saw (aside from the Poochyena you fight) and yes I knew what a shiny was, I loved pokemon before I played Ruby, so I was heartbroken xD

idk, I think having to actually face that shiny every time you fight Wally knowing it's not yours is worse. :P

I guess my worst experience is the lack of experiences. I've played the games for over ten years, only seen one shiny Pokemon besides Gyarados, and it was a Machop. Not as bad as seeing and not being able to catch, but it still frustrates me that my luck is so bad. ;P

Does not encountering a non-Red Gyarados count as a 'worst shiny experience'? 'Cause that's all I've got, to be honest...

Had a similar experience on Fire Red, where the Weedle that the Old Man teaches you how to catch was shiny. Sure, I didn't have to see it again, but I probably felt the same way you did just having to watch it happen and not be able to do anything about it.

My other bad experience was seeing a Shiny Paras in the Safari Zone on Fire Red. I was down to one last Safari Ball, and I didn't want to chance throwing a rock at it, so I crossed my fingers and threw the ball. It escaped after two shakes, and my Safari game was over.

My first 2 shinies were my worst shiny experiences. The first one was a Zubat in FR and I accidently ran before realizing that it was a shiny. My second was a Rattata in FR when I was on Route 1 and didn't had a Pokedex.

Running from a shiny Boldore in Black, which was a shame cos it looks nice.

I did catch a shiny Drilbur months later to make up for it. He's an Excadrill now.
