I have A LOT of shinies on my Diamond version. Let's see...

I dunno how to soft reset, so I turned it on and off a lot until it was shiny

Just ran into it

Got the event one in a trade and found one that I evolved into

shiny pikachu

And that's about it. I have 2 shiny gyaradoses from soul silver, a shiny machamp that I found as a shiny machop on soul silver, shiny Entei from the gamestop event, and um... I think that's it.

    That is soft-resetting! :P

    I never really soft-reset to be honest, I don't really have the patience; and while a shiny legendary may be nice, I'm not willing to sacrifice so much time.

      I spent my whole time in Platinum soft reseting for Shiny Piplup, which I have. And then once I got to hearthrome, I spent my whole saturday soft reseting for Shiny Eevee from Bebe, which I now have :)

        How long did this take you? A 1/8192 chance seems much more like a 1/50 chance to EVERYONE but me. I've played every game TWICE except for Black/Black 2 (white/white 2) and I have still not gotten a legitmate shiny pokemon.

        Maybe I should use the radar more often and chain.. but that just makes it seem like im bending the odds to get one.

        I have a shiny story of my own.. but it wasn't mine. When I was 7, I was playing Emerald with my Brother, and he found a shiny Spinda. He fainted it because he didn't like Spinda (which is reasonable, but COME ON)

        To this day, I dread the fact that even MY OWN FAMILY can get shinies before me :(

        My first shiny ever was on Diamond.
        A flipping Bidoof. D:
        But I was stupid and reset my game, forgetting that it was there. My only shinies obtained on Diamond are a Buneary and a Nidoran which was probably hacked but whatever.

        ...Now I want to go breed for shiny Pokemon. I'm going to go browse pictures of them until I find one that I really want to get.
        I can't think of a good signature.

          Haven't gotten a shiny Pokemon outside of the third generation. I mean honestly. It'd be nice to see a shiny, any shiny. But noooo. I tried chaining for Rhyhorn in Pt. I think it was, got to a decent 30 streak then lost it. ;P

              I've RNG'd plenty of Shiny's but I don't take as much pride in them as I do the one's I found in the wild. I found 2 Shiny's on one Ruby file after replaying it for the millionth time. A shiny Skitty and a shiny Numel. Then on my Platinum I found a shiny Magnemite while screwing around at Fuego Ironworks! Love these guys a lot more than my RNG's.

                  I ran into a shiny Gligar on my second time of using the Pokeradar (is that whats it called), but I had no idea that there was a trick for chaining Pokemon. Once my friend told me about this I tried to do it and failed and never did it again. However, I did manage to capture a shiny Drifloon (luck, I know :D ), starly, geodude, shinx, gastly and a ponyta.

                    I only have 1 hour playtime in my Pearl version (no badges yet), but I've already found five shinies: three Shinx, a Bidoof, and a Budew.
                    Unfortunately I ran out of Poké Balls when fighting the third Shinx, so I only caught four of them.

                    I'm beginning to think my game is bugged.

                    EDIT: And just caught another shiny Bidoof. Definitely keeping this save file?

                      For whatever reason, I haven't had much luck with shinies in DPPt. I never SR for them or anything, so all the ones I have are ones I just stumbled across. In the third gen games, I caught shinies of Zubat, Doduo, Electrike, Tentacool, Numel, Voltorb and Geodude. In Diamond I caught another Zubat, and that's it. It's an amazing Zubat - Jolly nature and with at least high 20s for all the important stats - easily the most useful shiny I've ever caught. But it's the only one in any of the three games.

                        I currently don't have any shinies, but I'm trying to get a shiny Staravia...shiny Staraptor, for some odd reason, dazzles me. By far the most beautiful shiny I've seen, in my opinion.
