The only bad shiny experience I've had is a relatively common one - encountering a shiny Geodude, then watching it blow itself up.

I've only ever seen one shiny, and I caught it... so I haven't really had any bad experiences. It was a pidgey in Crystal though, so I guess it sucks that I can't use it in any current games.

My worst experience is when I soft resetted on a shiny giratina after wasting days hunting for it. Another one would be when I encountered a Shiny Hoppip on Crystal while I had no Pokedex.

My worst experience was finding a shiny Electrike in Ruby, which didn't get captured in my only great ball. Made me sooo angry. I also kind of liked Manectric back then, so it was really sad.

Probably finding a shiny Zigzagoon, but thinking it was normal, and just running. Worst mistake I ever made. Tears are shed from the memory.

The first shiny I found in B/W was the Patrat Prof.Juniper caught at the first route.

I caught a legit shiny Numel on Emerald, but I'd already cheated for a full team of shiny legendaries...
Kind of ruined the legitimacy of it all, and I never used it

I've never had any bad shiny experiences.
...Of course, to have a bad shiny experience, you actually have to have a shiny experience...

My dad's girlfriend got her first pokemon game a week ago.
I was SO expecting her to find a shiny and not catch it.

She did, however, catch loads of Purrloins and yesterday say to me "I didn't know you had to train your pokemon. I thought you just caught them."

Wandering around on Diamond version. I was on that route between Jubilife and Oreburgh (ahaha probably spelled those wrong because I don't pay enough attention). Then boom encountered my first shiny.

A Bidoof.

I didn't really care but caught it anyway. Then forgot I had him/her and deleted the save file. x: Lost my first shiny darn it.

I have not encountered a shiny since Gen 2 Days....
The one Shiny I have seen was in Fire red but it was one of the Battle Tower trainer's Meowths

Although this is not something that happened to me personally, I would still count this as a "bad shiny experience"

A friend of mine was playing one of the Core Gen 3 Games (I can't remember which one of the top of my head) and managed to catch a shiny Electrike. His friend though it would be absolutely hilarious to rip the Gameboy out of his hands, and shut the game off before he had a chance to save it. He hasn't even encountered a Shiny since.

The one that got away. :'( Encountered a shiny Lillipup at the beginning of a new game I started on my White version and only had 3 poke balls at the time. I was too scared to actually damage it, and wasn't able to catch it in 3 tries and failed.

Luckily a shiny Gothita I encountered last month made up for that, lol.

I wish I could remember the generation (I think it was II) or the Pokemon, but the first shiny I saw I didn't know what was going on. It was a weak Pokemon that I had already caught for my Pokedex. Since I didn't realize what a shiny Pokemon was...I just killed it and took the experience. You can imagine how I felt when I realized what a shiny was.

I've had many bad shiny experiences.

#1: Shiny Rattata in Gold, no Pokédex yet.
#2: Shiny Jolteon in the Battle Pyramid in Emerald.
#3: Shiny Metagross in the Battle Tower in Ruby.
#4: Shiny Combee... male shiny Combee.
I lol'd at the Combee one. Not at your misfortune, but just how unlucky that circumstance is.

The only bad experience with a shiny that I ever had was in Ruby, I ran into a green Golbat while grinding my Crobat. Low and behold, nothing to catch it with.

My worst moment would have to be when I found a shiny mienfoo. I had been hunting for days at Dragonspiral tower, and had looked away... and saw the blue pokemon...

As I was running away. I checked my pokedex to confirm it, and sure enough, I had missed it :(

I'm not sure if this counts, but I ALMOST ran away from a shiny Unown in my Ruby Destiny Reign of Legends ROM. I still shiver at the thought that I was about press B on 'RUN' before I realized that the Unown was blue.

When I encountered a shiny Pidove in a nuzlocke challenge, but it wasn't the first Pokemon that I saw there ;;

I almost caught it anyways, but of course the crit hax came to bite me.
