Playing Platinum right now and using a cute shiny Drifloon! This gave me the idea to remake the 4th gen shiny thread! What are some shinies that you have caught and used in this gen? Which are your favorites? :3

The only one Shiny I got in Platinum was Floatzel, and I didn't use it since I already had a strong team at this point. My personal favorites from this gen are Leafeon.

I never used the shinies I caught on my team, but I have still got them in storage to glomp at, but if you're wondering what I have it's just below:

Diamond (technically my brother's copy):

Soul Silver:

(I also have Red Gyarados but he doesn't count)

Not exactly the best stuff in the world, but I would have definitely used that Budew since a shiny Roserade would have been very awesome to use. Not a fan of Graveler, Unown or Farfetch'd though, the latter two are nothing but complete jokes.

I don't have most of my fourth gen shinies because I lost both my Pearl and my old Platinum. 8( But I shinies I did have were a shiny Budew (my first shiny in fourth gen), a shiny Milotic, aannnd a shiny Bulbasaur which I, thankfully, still have since it's on my Soul Silver. ♥ But that's about it when it came to fourth gen shinies, I believe.

I have only ever caught one shiny on a game that wasn't Gen 6, and that is Platinum.

My first shiny ever was Gastly. I didn't know much about shinies back then, but somehow I knew it was a special Pokémon. I trained it up and loved it, though when I learned how bad shiny Gengar was I sadly traded it away which is a big regret of mine. I've never found a shiny on an older game since which makes me sad, but I'm glad I found my very first on a game like that anyways.

I forgot... not even Crazy Diamond can fix peoples' hearts...
Psst...Ask me stuff

None unfortunately! It's a shame because a lot Sinnoh and Johto Pokemon have some really nice shiny designs and colours. I found a shiny Swinub on Gold but none in any of my 4th Gen games. I was luckier in my 5th Gen games though (shiny Beartic and Bravairy #winning).
