I tried to breed one once but gave up very quickly afterwards. I wouldn't mind doing something like RNG or SR once I have a shiny already, but considering I've never gotten one I don't want to be manipulating the game to get one.

"Oh hi Red Gyarados. What's that? Ampharos used Thunderpunch? It's super effective!? Well, I'll be. Goodbye Red Gyarados." - every shiny experience ever with me.

It's kind of funny because today I was randomly fishing in Emerald and found a shiny Magikarp! Caught it and it has a MODEST nature of all things. I could of cried right there.

I think Magikarp or Gyarados are the worst shinies to have. I mean, nobody would keep the Magikarp from evolving, right? Shiny Gyarados are far too common because of Lake of Rage. x:

@Luke - Shiny and modest, like a pearl or tourmaline opal. Sounds like a beauty.

I found a shiny Magikarp on the GTS in Gen 4 once, of course there's a chance it's hacked( though everything about it looks ok as far as I know) and I got it for a fairly reasonable offer. I don't feel like getting it checked though. I just wanted it to have.

I once got a shiny Buneary off GTS. They only wanted a female Eevee 9 and under. <3

Plus some Gyarados but, again, I no longer see shiny Gyarados as all that great.

I also got a very legit looking Shiny Shaymin off the GTS for a Cresselia that Id offered up for any Shaymin. That was a long time ago and I just wanted a Shaymin having missed out on the events in Platinum( I didnt even realize Platinum existed till HG/SS were almost out)

Oh, cool. Do you think it's real?
Someone on PC sent me a shiny Nidoran(M)...but it says the egg hatched in the mystery zone. x:

I once encountered a Shiny Rufflet in White. I ran out of Pokeballs. Never got to find it again after that. fml.

I would have named it Livey if I did catch it!

Buuut in terms of other shinies, I got a Shiny Treecko from Rednael and I still have it. :3

Its possible. I doubt many people would fork over a shiny Shaymin for a Cresselia. It might've been a clone of a legit one at least, but I dont really trust the legitimacy of any shiny on the GTS especially because people who hack can make them look really legit.

True. x:
I've cloned my shinies before, then found out about being banned from NWFC. I: A shame that you can't clone without potentially being banned. I would have liked to put up a shiny in return for a Bidoof or something- just to make someone's day. (:

One time I tried breeding a shiny (with a Ditto) to see if a newborn shiny would come out, but that failed :\ I wonder if breeding with a (normal) Ditto had anything to do with that though

Pst, I wish I could capture a shiny on my GBA games. Stupid internal battery died for all of them. And I never really got into the whole VBA craze (although I feel like that's old tech...)

Chances are the GTS is extremely tainted. It's surprisingly easy to make technically legit Pokemon with computer programs.

I only use them to replace my starters in Gen V but the same tool can be used for "darker" means, I guess you can say.

Action Replay? Never touched it. I thought the idea of it was lame, to be honest.

I just liked walking through objects. I got a DP Box that way. I wish I would have been able to reach Shaymin and Darkrai before it died.

Yea, I never give myself shinies through that even though I can and I can make it seem 100% legit.

There's no fun in that, so yea I only do it to get Pokemon that would be unobtainable in that region. i.e. Venusaur is my starter in White 2 haha

I actually waited for the events for those two, and Arceus. Although, I always did think it was lame how they just gave us the Pokemon rather then the item needed to unlock the path to the Pokemon in game, ya know?

I wasn't around for those events. D: But my used game had a shiny Darkrai, Shaymin, and Arceus. <3 Apparently some dude bought copyright stuff from Nintendo to do whatever he wants with the games, then sells them for $100+. So the shiny Arceus is technically legit, despite it being impossible. x:

Whoa. That's pretty insane D;

I wonder if anyone on PC (or at least a DCC regular) ever actually encountered a shiny legendary. I know I haven't.

Pffft worth it to have a PC literally full of shinies. <3

I haven't. x: Though I plan on SRing Lugia once I get far enough into Soulsilver to get it. Which reminds me that I need to SR for a shiny Drifloon haha.
