    I encountered & caught my first ever shiny about a week ago. I was just casually making my way through victory road when I ran in to a pokemon and saw the twinkle of the shiny stars surrounding a Banette! I kind of had a little nerd moment and freaked out, wife has no idea what I was babbling incoherently about shiny pokemon and 1/8000 encounter rate.

    Nonetheless, I had a decent supply & variety of pokeballs along with a Haxorus with false swipe to seal the deal. Now have my first shiny!

    I haven't really put him to use yet. Don't have much interest in ghost or Banette in particular, but it's still nice to come across in my box when I'm searching for something else!
