I was playing a Emerald ROM on my Android Phone - and I came across a shiny Shuppet!

Named her Shine, and I was very surprised considering how hard it is to find them in previous generations... just a shame I can't trade her. I evolved her and she's now in my team.



Have you found any 3rd gen shinies recently, or ever for that matter?

I can recall two that i've found in the Generation III games:

One was a shiny Gastly in Firered, which was nice even though the physical/special split wasn't around then. I never got to transfer it to another game though.
Another was a shiny Mawile I found in Emerald way back, in Victory Road while I was training for the league. It's now in my main Platinum version.

Back when I had LeafGreen I caught a Shiny Gastly. I had to contain my childish excitement(I was like 12) because it was way after bedtime anyway(Why was I in Lavender Town past my bedtime?). I didn't have any Pokemon friends back then so I never got a Shiny Gengar, though. I lost the game so I never was able to transfer it years later.

My first shiny was in gen 3 actually! It was a shiny Sunkern that I found in Emerald. Nothing special but I love it so much because it was my first :]

My first was an Electrike at Route 110 on either Ruby or Emerald, it was years back so I don't have the game anymore. A couple of months ago though I ran into a shiny Oddish in the Safari Zone on my Sapphire Version, I ended up catching it and it's in a box now. I do plan to EV train it and transfer it later after I'm done with my other play throughs in Emerald.

In third-gen games, I've encountered only about four to five shinies. One of them was Zigzagoon, which I was able to capture pretty easily. Another was Onix, but couldn't catch it, though, as I didn't have any Poké Balls with me at that time. :(

I had a Shiny Venomoth in FireRed without realizing. It was when I was a kid and the little glisten that a shiny does was just confusing and I didn't know what it meant until later on

Yes! I've found Wurmple that evolved to Dustox, Whismur that became an Exploud, Volbeat, and then a Rattata in my LeafGreen. All random encounters. :3

Damn!
This topic made me want to play Gen 3 again.
Anyway, I played Gen 3 A LOT, so of course I found shinies.
Random encounters, breeding, and even special encounters, like interaction with a Pokemon.
I found shinies in all of the above.

Random encounters: A lot.
Breeding: Swinub (Swinoob), Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, Growlithe, and Larvitar.
Special encounters: Snorlax, Zapdos, Groudon, and Rayquaza.

I've found all my shinies in 3rd gen. I've found Poochyena, Swablu, Caterpie, Volbeat, and I found a Tentacool in a FireRed rom a few months ago. Safe to say I know where my shiny luck is. :p

4 out of the 6 shiny Pokemon that I've ever encountered in the Pokemon games have actually been in the 3rd generation, though I've only had the opportunity to catch two of them.

Of the two I didn't catch, one was a Paras in the Safari Zone (I didn't deserve to catch it), and the other was a shiny Weedle... in the Pokemon catching tutorial by the old man in Viridian. The two that I did catch both came from Sapphire, and were a shiny Shroomish (now a Breloom), and a shiny Heracross. Both are currently on my HeartGold, though I rarely use them.

I found a shiny swinub in Icefall Cave that I put on to my Diamond version. Then I restarted it without trading.

I got a shiny tropius (Emerald). Was the oddest moment of my life. Sadly I started a new game without really caring about it.
That was the only shiny I've gotten.

I've encountered a lot of shinies in Gen III... The first shiny I ever got, as a kid, was a Heracross from Leaf Green. Sadly, I deleted the file that had the Heracross... I had no idea just how important a shiny really was! I also managed to get a shiny Poochyena and Pikachu in Emerald; I don't have those anymore, either. I wonder what happened to them...

The only shiny to date, was a Carvanha at route 118 I think. I was surprised, but I managed to catch it.

I found two shinies in my Sapphire version: Geodude and Numel. I kept Numel for my team, because I liked the blue variation it had; Geodude I left in my PC. I really didn't understand what exactly I had found at that time, lol.
