Worst shiny experience...
Well, I haven't run innto a whole lot of shiny's, but my third time running into one was awful.

In Emerald, I was fighting Registeel. Surprise surprise, it was shiny. I tried my hardest to catch it (you have no clue ><) but in the end, it struggled itself to death.
Ah.
Ouch. :x

Worst shiny experience? I have two; one happened to me and the other happened to my friend.

What happened to me actually started out as the best shiny experience ever. I started a new game on my Crystal version for fun, and ended up saving over my old file because the day care gave me an egg that hatched into a shiny Tyrogue. I managed to get that thing into a level 40 Hitmonchan, which was my best friend at the time. Then, one day, while I was playing it at a summer camp program, a kid took my Gameboy from me, released my Hitmonchan, and saved the game. I cried for two days.

What happened to my friend had me laughing for two days. One day, he was playing his Crystal version at my house, and managed to find and catch a shiny Krabby. He evolved it into a Kingler, and was really happy because it learned Guillotine. Then, my other friend threw a pillow at him. This pillow, which was tossed very lightly into his direction, had slightly hit his Gameboy in his hand. This caused the game to restart, and somehow delete his save file.
Oh gosh, that first situation is just horrible. :< (and that is exactly why I have to monitor anyone playing my Pokemon games, for fear of something happening to my shiny Pokemon, let alone the rest of them. )

As for the second situation, that had me laughing quite a bit (and I can speak from experience because, as mentioned in my previous post in this thread, the same thing happened to me, only I didn't get a pillow thrown/tossed at me. :cer_laugh Those GameBoy game files must be a bit fragile/delicate if a mere pillow can cause a game restart and file deletion...

Wow. :o I didn't even know there was a cheat to modify Bag items while engaged in battle (on VisualBoyAdvance, that is...).

I'm not a big fan of cheating, although I did hack the game to change my starter to Pichu. Luckily, once I beat the game on this file, I started another file with Tyrogue and found a shiny Rattata that I caught.

You can use any Gameshark code on VisualBoyAdvance. You can also use CodeBreaker or GameGenie codes, but I've never even heard of those before.

Worst? My whole time I played FireRed. I was very young, and had no way of getting onto the internet, so I didn't know what a shiny was.

Anyway, I started it out, normal game. I was like, "Hmm, what starter.. lets choose this water turtle thing." It was shiny. I kid you not. My first ever pokemon was a shiny, and you know what I did? Restarted the game. I thought it was a glitch, and I said something like: "Dude, stars? What the heck.." So I reset my game and chose a Charmander. I played a bit, and got to Viridian Forest, and a Weedle poisoned me. It was also shiny. I was mad that it poisoned me, so I ran. I ran into a few others I can't remember well.

This is pretty much why I became a shiny hunter. I don't want my stupidness to run away from another shiny again.

I found a shiny Raticate in Gen II (can't remember if it was Gold, Silver or Crystal). I'm pretty sure I didn't catch it because I ran out of balls, but I didn't really care since Raticate is pretty useless in later battles anyways.

I had 4 shinies in Platinum (Roselia, Sneasel, Marill, Blissey) and another in HeartGold (Mewtwo). Unfortunately, I lost both games.

Well, I personally haven't had any bad shiny moments but my brother had a really bad one.

My brother has NEVER caught a shiny pokemon before... I had 4, so he got frustrated and looked up how to use the Pokeradar after I told him he could potentially use that to get a shiny (All mine were found with pure luck). first couple times he failed but the 3rd one he got up to like a 50 streak on mightyenas. Eventually he found a shiny one and he was ecstatic.

Here is how the fight went

First he switched out of his killer Pokemon into a false swiper.
He used false swipe.
He threw an ultra ball that failed.
Mightyena used roar

All motivation was crushed in that moment.

In Crystal on the cycling path near Celadon, I ran into a shiny Grimer. Yay! I use one weak attack to get her into yellow health. Grimer flees. WHAT/ THEDDWS EKDS WHYYY I don't visit the Safari Zone out of fear of having a shiny flee. Who designs this stuff?

Quote:
Certain wild Pokémon can escape from battle. Pokémon that are legendary or found in the region's Safari Zone are the only ones who flee.

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, a few species of wild Pokémon can escape from battle. These Pokémon are more likely to be caught in a Fast Ball.
Low probability:
Magnemite
Grimer
Tangela
...
@Dragonmage: At least in Emerald and with your original save file where you saw Wally's blue Ralts, if you run into a shiny (for example) 43.67 seconds in the game upon boot up, you will always run into a shiny at 43.67 seconds upon boot up. The RNG is broken like that and can be abused without knowing the technical stuff. I'm fortunate enough to have my shiny frame appear in 40 seconds, rather than something like 3 hours from boot up.

The only shiny I've ever encountered, in my seven years of playing Pokemon, was a random, non-radar Roselia while EV-training my Gardevoir. The DS ran out of battery.

I was Soft-Resetting for a shiny starter on Pokemon Ruby and found a shiny Poochyena, and the only other I ever saw was a shiny Slugma in Pokemon Emerald, and all I had was like four Pokeballs... I didn't catch it.

I've only seen three Shinies, and none at inopportune times. Shiny Nincada in Emerald (successful catch, now the one I am cloning for trades), and two Shiny Audinos in White 2 (how I ended up with a second chance at a Shiny Audino I'll never figure out). The first Shiny Audino, as you might be able to tell, got away; my first attack ended up being a crit. and down it went. Thankfully, I was able to catch the second without difficulty, so I haven't really missed out on anything Shiny.

I can't really recall any bad shiny expriences. I do have a story of my friend running around bragging about his shiny sandshrew when we were doing a challenge speedrun of SoulSilver, but he shut up about it when I found a shiny koffing in burned tower

Well, there was one time I chained a shiny Budew. I got it at 6 on the chain, which does not happen often(there's a quite low chance of a shiny patch there, but I found one) I caught it and named it. I went and started another chain of Skitty and got it up to the 30's well, the chain then broke. I was so mad I turned off the DS. Now, this is what makes the experience bad: Id forgotten to save after catching the Budew. I think you can imagine how mad I was after that.

Shiny Audino, nuff said. ._. I really didn't like how my Pokemon used an attack and got a cric. hit.. Yeah.

Then you know Braviary? Yes. ^.^ Almost got a shiny, but then the DSi just had to go and glitch itself up at that very moment. Never did see one ever again.

I chained a Roselia with the Pokeradar back in platinum only to end up accidentally running from it. I've never made another attempt at finding another shiny since that day.

I can think of two bad shiny experiences. One comes from Emerald, where I encountered a shiny in the Battle Pyramid. And the second came from Silver, where I found a shiny Tangela only to see it flee on the first chance it had. ;_;

Fortunately my good experiences outweigh those two, so I'm not too upset.

The only wild shiny I have ever seen (aside from the garydos and the egg from the daycare center) was the first wild pokemon I fought in gsc. I had literally just stepped outside of newbark, into the grass after getting my cyndaquil and I saw a shiny. It sucked... after nearly 2k hours of pokmon playing, I still have yet to see another legit shiny.
