Owwch. I know how much that hurts since it happened to me. The only shinies I kept were the ones I had GenIII clones of. I just recently re-captured the last of the SR shinies I had lost--Rotom. It's well worth it to bounce back, and throughout the long task of recapturing my shinies, I also picked up three more SRs along the way--Treecko, Drifloon, and Palkia.

Since then, I've kept clones of all my GenIV shinies as well, by trading them to an M3 savefile and backing it up. It never hurts to be too cautious.

I'd really suggest picking up Heart Gold/Soul Silver once they're released next year--they're shaping up to be some of the best Pokémon games of all time. Platinum is also a good game to get back into things with. Either way, we'd love to see you around again. (It's getting exhausting being the sole co-owner all the time!)

Personal progress: Zip. Happy hunting!
Don't want to see another generation drop

I'd rather be a comma than a full stop
