I once KOed a shiny Onix in Crystal.
I just stared at it for a moment and then took a deep breath and played on. I'm not a huge fan of shinies so I don't really worry about it.

Actually, now that I think about it, the reason I had to KO it was because I only had one PokeBall, which was the Master Ball, in which I was intending to use it for something else. Looking back on it now that was kind of retarded of me, but.

I've done it when I borrowed my brothers Saphire and Pearl games. I ran into tons of shinies, almost all were ko'd on accident (Or ko'd by that Mira in wayward cave...) , except this one Lotad I caught.

I didnt actually KO my first shiny, but it was on my FireRed version, it was a Mankey, one of my favorite pokemon too! But I caught it and immediately tried (notice tried) to transfer it to my Platinum. I Got all ready and it said I had no save on my FR and I went and checked, and it was gone. My only shiny Ive legitely found. Needless to say my game was shattered.

I was helping my little brother with Emerald a few weeks ago, and he told me a Poocheyana was a different color. I immediately took over the game, but unfortunately, he found it while he had only his strongest Pokemon. I fainted it in 1 hit, and just had a laugh about it. A couple days later, I caught a shiny tangela in Heart Gold.

Don't listen to all those rumors about me, I'm just your average everyday Pokemon trainer!

Maybe I'll just go like this.
Aw, man! The shiny fainted...Fine.

So...I'll probably be a bit upset about it, but I would get over it pretty easily.

That'd probably be my reaction to such a thing happening. I mean, with legendaries and such you're able to save just before the battle (excluding Mew when using the glitch in R/B. I remember I did it once, but wanted to wait with starting the battle because I wanted to show it to a friend, and it could be that Mew wouldn't appear again since it was a glitch, though my curiousity got the better of me, and I went just to look at it, and the next day I find out that I was right ):), and battle them again if something like that happens, but with shinies you only have one chance. So being out of balls or accidentally KO'ing it is the worst thing that'd ever happen :(

I've done it a few times and took out a green Zubat the other day in Platinum and tbh I can't say it bothers me, I'm sure if I was actually looking for a specific Pokémon and ran into a shiny one and killed it I'd be kinda annoyed but meh. If a random wild Pokémon comes up while training/traveling and it is useless to me, being shiny doesn't change that, infact it just makes me faint them for the lols instead of simply running.

Ran out of pokeballs on a shiny onix. I stopped playing fire red for a week after that.

This has happened to me a lot of times. Once, I was playing Pokémon Fire Red and the most amazing thing happened. Shiny Machop. :] I was hoping that I had Pokéballs in my pocket. Aaaand I didn't :'(. I went into rage. I didn't even want to play anymore. But I did find another one a few months after.

Commit suicide. I'd probably start yelling and get all pissed. And I'd be mad at myself for a while.
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?

I killed a shiny Durant, I had killed enough Durants to know what moves to use, but I forgot my Pokémon had leveled up...

I think I saw it dying in slow motion, I was like "Ohhh Craaap!!!" *facepalm*. I didn't know what to do next , If I turned it off that wouldn't mean I'd find another shiny right away, so, I decided to save. At least it was recorded in the Pokédex <_>

I know I can get a Shiny Durant if I really wanted by other methods, but it's not the same.

I have found a shiny Spinarak, Krabby, Rattata (silver) and Wailmer (sapphire) and caught them successfully. You would think I should have enough experience by the time I played White but nooo.... Noob mistake -__-

I've never killed a shiny aside from the Red Gyarados when I was a stupid kid. Didn't realize I was supposed to catch it.

I caught a shiny Pidgey legit in Leaf Green - second Pokemon I ran into after getting my first five Poke Balls. Haven't seen another legit shiny. If I killed one, I'd be REALLY livid and my eyes would shoot lasers and... I'd have a mess to clean up.

Make like odepius and stab my own eye. Okay, not that extreme, but bodily and/or mechanical injury will ensue.

I once found a shiny Starly on 1) before I got my Pokéball so I couldn't catch it and 2) on a secondary file without deleting the primary so I couldn't save it even if I did have a Pokéball.

I can only imagine my reaction would be something like that. Self-loathing, depression, and refusal to play Pokémon for a couple months

My exact same reaction. Would probably throw my Gameboy/whatever console on to the floor as well.

I've usually caught most of the shinies I've encountered. But there's no question how I'd react to it fleeing or selfdestructing:

Well, it teaches me as a reminder to keep a good number of PokeBalls, GreatBalls and UltraBalls just to make sure you don't fall into this trap.
