I didn't even know what a shiny is until after I killed the red Gyarados, I was really noobish back then & thought that it had rabies or something & I have to kill it because it's a threat.

The only real shiny I caught was an Ursaring, I was grinding for days at Mt. Silver & suddenly found it, luckily I was on an emulator so I saved state just in case, I caught it easily since nearly all my team was over-leveled but it was boxed since then.

I never got a shiny in GSC aside from Red Gyarados and Igglybuff from the Odd Egg in Crystal. I do love shiny Pokemon, yes. :3 Would have been great to have a shiny Umbreon in gen II.

The amount of Shiny Pokémon I've owned (excluding the Gyarados) can be counted on one hand- and none of them were found in G/S/C.

Even with the Odd Egg in Crystal, no joy. And I emulated Crystal! I could've cheated to make it 100% likely, and everything! :(

This one's called 'Blue', and it's very Pokémon themed, so have a listen! Check out the links below for more stuff, if you like this!

My Pokémon Y character is the same as my username. If you see me as a Passerby let me know! I tend to get a lot of Passerby requests and I often wonder if it's people from this site.

Red Gyarados is the only shiny I ever caught, too. I didn't even know what a shiny was until Gen IV......

In my Gold version, aside from Gyrados, I caught a shiny zubat outside of union cave at route 32. The sight itself was hilarious. I also caught a Golden Magikarp. Yes! Golden! I wanted to evolve the magikarp assuming it would evolve into a red gyrados and breed assuming I would get more golden magikarp but never got to trying it. Other than that, I cant remember any more for Gold.
In emerald version, I caught a green Golbat in victory road. I may have also caught a shiny mareep at the safari zone if I remember correctly.

Aside from Gyarados I've caught a Shiny Donphan, Weedle, and Oddish, and I've hatched a Shiny Elekid and a Shiny Magby from the ??? Egg in Crystal. Though out of all of them I only have the Shiny Elekid and the Shiny Magby now. One of them is currently stored in Pokemon Stadium 2 and the other one is on a rom on my phone.

keep smiling

Quote originally posted by ORegan:
I had a shiny Golbat that I found on Victory Road. I didn't know that shiny Pokemon were ridiculously rare and I knocked it out on accident when I encountered it. Thinking it was like a Legendary Pokemon, I reloaded my last save and went back to look for it in the same area....and I encountered it again....and proceeded to knock it out a second time. I found it a third time and finally caught.

Haven't seen a shiny since then. Guess fortune is no longer shining on me. :P
like this guy, i found a shiny golbat on victory road. but i only had a masterball so i didn't even bother with it and ran. besides that, I've found a shiny raticate. but this was on an emulator.
