Have you ever gotten a Shiny Pokémon starter in your Pokémon games? Not via trade, btw. Just selecting normally!

I have maybe once when I played Emerald. I got a Torchic randomly. But, I didn't save the game because I remember I had a really good team on my current Emerald. To this day, I really regret this! This was my first shiny starter Pokémon, and I was a silly kid. I mean, I had sentimental value because I had a Sceptile I loved, but still. I'm sure I'd have made many shiny hunters mad if they heard this. (Please don't be mad at me, shiny hunters.)

Surprisingly, I have not. I say surprisingly because I have played through so many Pokemon games so many times. Figured I would have gotten one by now! Might reset for a shiny Torchic in Emerald though.

I could've sworn I had one shiny starter at some point, but maybe that's just false memory. I certainly would've recalled such a thing, so I'm going to go with no.

Would be interesting to see how long it would take via soft-resetting before I got one, though!

By chance no. Well I’ve never intentionally restarted my game 1000s times until I’ve gotten one either. If it ever happened one time I would absolutely lose it and obviously make them my star player during my play through.

by first pick, no. but i have hunted for a shiny chimchar via soft resets back when I replayed platinum last year. and I was actually successful. got it in less than 300 soft resets - I was lucky as hell o.o

Nope, never got one from a first pick or soft resetting. All shiny starters I got were from trades! Have yet to breed my own. Eventually that Chespin will be home though... ❤️
