Hey I don't want to be too controversial or anything,
but is it weird to never have seen a shiny Pokémon?

I mean I started playing Pokémon with Ruby. There I often had savedgames with no less than 300 hours before they became corrupted, or before I accidentally saved a new game. And with often I mean like 2 or 3 times. Later I played some Diamond, but not for more than a grand total of 120 hours, and I played some Platinum, Heartgold and the likes on emulators (but nothing much). I also played Black, though I never bought it. Shame on me. But yeah I have no memories on seeing shinies apart from those on the Emerald of a friend of mine, which he had gotten through one of those hacking things for the GBA. What were they called again xD!

Anyways I'm sad. I really want a shiny.

Not weird at all. My first game was Yellow, and ive played every Gen since, more than once...
i havent seen a single shiny either, but Gen6 might be my lucky Gen

Let's both go for that shiny! They tend to be more abundant in hordes... But I always avoid tall grass. I just challange every trainer 100 times.

Also I love battles, wanna fight? I'll edit this message to add my player code once my online match is over.

Neither me nor my brother have run into any Shiny Pokemon. I'm on my fifth badge and he's working on his seventh.

I think you guys are just lucky =C


There is a rumor that says the more you tip the NPC the better chance you have for Shiny Pokemon to appear. So far it doesn't seem true. I tip 1000 every chance I get and no shinies.

I've managed to encounter a shiny Litleo once, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to catch it. :( I was trying to lower its health a bit by using an attack on it, in hopes to increasing the chance of the capture rate, but… the move ended up becoming a critical hit. D: I was quite upset over it. Litleo is one of my most favorite Pokémon of the Kalos region. I had the chance to capture it in its shiny form, but it all went up in flames in an instant. This has gotta be one of my most unluckiest moments in Pokémon games.

Other than Litleo, I haven't been able to encounter any shiny Pokémon at all. If I did though, then I'd capture it in a heartbeat, regardless if I liked the Pokémon or not. Shinies are the rarest of all, and to simply pass up the opportunity to catch one would be pretty foolish. xD"

I've heard a lot of things about how easy it is to get shines compared to the older games, but I have still yet to come across one. Then again, I find getting Pokérus easier than finding shiny pokémon.

I'm wondering if Mega Evolution also have a shiny form. Like, a shiny charizard would have different mega evolution colors. Would be awkward to see a shiny charizard using charizatite Y or however you call it, into a red charizard.

I haven't seen any so far, I remember once I had just started silver and was grinding my cyndaquil when I came across a shiny poliwag which was my favourite at the time, but it was before I could get a pokeball so I was really annoyed

I've heard that X and Y has revised the chances of finding shinies, and they're now more common (obviously still ridiculously rare)... don't know if it's true, but I haven't found one shiny so far. Then again, I've never had good luck with shinies; I've found one total in Crystal years ago, a Golbat. Wish I could transfer it over...

i havent read anywhere about them changing the formula but they did bring back the poke radar so if they did mention it being easier then they could have been referring to that

No shinies yet, although I'm sure the Ratio has been lowered.

, I went to the Shop... I looked to the games and... NO POKEMON X OR Y!!
I walked to the Guy-Who-Sells-All-That-Stuff-Cause-I-Don´t-Know-How-To-Say-It-In-English and I asked...Then he said: Nee, die zijn uitverkocht. (That means:''No,they're sold out.'' Cause I'm from The Netherlands).. So then I walked to the other shop.. I looked again and didn't see them AGAIN.. Aaaaaaaan they also were sold out in that shop... Then I walked AGAIN to the next and last shop... I didn't see them AGAIN.. They were sold out AGAIN.. So i reserved one..



IT WAS F#"$ing !" OCTOBER, 13:00 AND IN A CITY WITH A POPULATION OF 18,518 ITS NOT COOL THAT IT WAS SOLD OUT SO QUICK!!

But I'll get Pokemon Y tomorrow so.. I'LL GO LOOK FOR SOME SHINY'S !

Guess I may as well join the club. Less than 3 hours into the game caught a shiny plusle with a quick ball I got like 10 minutes before I found it. Though I guess I have better luck with shinies than most people since it is like the 5th non-hacked shiny I have found since 3rd generation.
