Haha I remember some people back then who thought that when it fled, it was gone forever, and one that got frustrated that he lost it and never played the game after that. When I told him that it wasn't the case he was like "DAMN!!" haha! Awhh poor soul!

Haha, poor guy. I've never been a huge fan of the legendary dog trio, aside from the excitement of when I first encountered Raikou. When I forgot and reset my game before catching Suicine, I was mostly annoyed that I couldn't SR for a shiny one. x:

I don't know what SR is but.. to me? It makes it more special if the shiny was truly random. Like winnng the lottery! Some people shiny hunt but I dunno why.. I guess I just never bothered.
I remember I was playing Gold on my gameboy pocket, and I was doing the bug catching game, and caught a venonat while not really paying attention (was also watching tv,) and I was angry afterwards that I couldn't get a scyther or pinsir.
Then when I put it on my bro's gameboy colour, I spazzed out that it had sparkles and was a different colour; I remember it so clearly!! Was in the spare room where the N64 was hooked up and I just flipped and ran to show my brother hahaha!

Ahh memories..

How do you even..

I remember when I was going to SR for a shiny Piplup in Platinum. I decided not to in the end. I started Platinum and after I got Piplup, I restarted because it had a bad nature and IVs. The next time it was shiny. I made 'noises' that night.

Looks like the Anime/Manga discussion got merged with General Entertainment.

Efficient, I suppose.

My first shiny was a flipping Bidoof on Diamond version. I:
I didn't even know what a big deal they are, but had faintly remembered that it's "special" in some way. Then forgot and reset the save file. I still have my first SR'd shiny (and cloned him once) sitting in my PC box, though. (:

Kura, if I understood your post correctly, you said that you don't know what SR'ing is, right? It's when you, before either getting a starter or encountering a legendary (or something like a Drifloon that is seen out-of-battle), save the game. Then encounter said Pokemon over and over again (resetting the game by pressing start + select + L + R if it's not shiny) until you get a shiny one. I got a shiny Chikorita that way. <3

Huh. Now I want to go SR for a shiny Drifloon. I've always loved the coloration but never bothered to get one. I think it works for SRing, not sure.

My first shiny ever was a Machoke by Snowpoint City in Diamond. My second shiny was in Pokemon White's Victory Road and it was a Deino.

Ahaha, I guess green shinies are your thing? X)

Even before getting a Gen V game, I loved Deino and its evolution line. That kind of has faded since. x:

It really does seem like it. I have high hopes for Gen VI!

Hahaha we'll see. I've only ever found those two in the wild. My other shinies were traded for and Red Gyarados never counts haha

My most recent shiny is my Ambipom named Strawberry in Platinum. She is a Goddess amongst us mortals.

I was once playing Sapphire and the Zigzagoon Wally got from Norman was shiny. I wanted to punch myself in the face so hard.

The only shinies I recall was a Tentacool in GSC and a Poochyena

Except for Red Gyarados and Pikachu-coloured Pichu

I can't recall my last shiny, but I remember once coming across a shiny Pidgey.

Getting one of the rarest commons is the equivalent of getting a diamond-encrusted kick in the balls.

Well, not counting hacked shinies on ROMs, I've only legitimately encountered a few shinies and I'm pretty sure I've missed all of them. I'm generally horrible at just weakening a Pokémon to catch it :/
