    I have 9 legit shinies altogether... I think that's pretty damn decent.

    The only shiny I've ever caught was a Dusclops in Pokemon Ruby. I mean, I've got the Red Gyarados and all that but it doesn't count because everyone gets that. I saw a shiny Mightyena once but... roar. *sobs quietly in a corner*

    I've also got a shiny Cherubi named Nugget! Luke got it for me but I haven't used it yet because I'm a little paranoid of raising it badly (I wanna EV train it or something to do it justice but that sounds so intimidating). Also I realized after I asked for it to be named Nugget that the name is kind of reserved for Cherubi in my head and it doesn't feel like it applies to Cherrim. :(

    I got all my shinies in Gen 3. I haven't played the other games long enough to get any legit shinies there :(

    I have caught at least one shiny in every game I played so far except Platinum and Black 2. I'm pretty lucky if I had managed to have a shiny in all my games except two.

    In Ruby, my sole shiny is a Duskull. In Diamond (not really mine lol) I have 3 shinies, a Budew, Graveler and Unown-U. SoulSilver has a Graveler and a Farfetch'd (I also have Red Gyarados) while in Black I have an Excadrill, who I caught as a Drilbur. I have also seen a Lotad in Sapphire, and a Boldore in Black but sadly ran away from them.

    Dusclops was in Ruby and the Mightyena I lost was in Emerald.

    I hated gen 3 and played it for the bare minimum time, pretty much. I've poured hours into the games in other generations and never seen a shiny and the one gen I just half-assed and never played more than I had to was the only one I had any luck with. Go figure.

      Have had some pretty good luck with shiny Pokemon. My first was a shiny Elekid in Pokemon Crystal, and I've had plenty since. Poochyena and Spoink in Saphire, Zubat in Fire Red, Luxray in Diamond. Soul Silver trolled me though, I let my little sister play and she screams across the room saying she found a shiny. Upon investigation it was a Magikarp (and this isn't a troll, it happened around 2 weeks ago), found in Lake of Rage which kind of befitted it. In White, and Black 2 I've got myself a Liepard, Gigalith and Politoed. I've probably had more in previous games but I can't really recall them. I guess some of them are oky, but I'm not really fond of any of them other then Politoed haha.

        My first shiny ever was a Machop, and the immediate next battle encounter was a shiny Geodude. I was so surprised that I'd found one so you can imagine getting two in a row!
        Other than that I've had a Rhyhorn and a Zubat from other games.

        I haven't found a shiny for a very long time, I think I'm due for one.

          Never had any shinies, nor even come across them. :(

          The only shiny I've ever caught (or seen) was a...Bidoof. That is so absolutely disappointing.

          I've actually found a few myself. Metapod, Oddish, Geodude, Meditite, Wingull, etc. I think I had a few more that I caught but I can't remember.

          My caught ones...I think I have like 8. But I have the memory of a goldeen goldfish so I can't remember them right now. x: I also have a ton of shinies that were originally on a game I got used (it was confirmed that none are hacked). My favorite might be the shiny Mew.

          I'm more of a fan of the shiny version haha. <3
          Perhaps it's just my dislike of pink, though.

          The coloration of some shinies aren't as good as the normal ones, though, yeah. Like Groudon.

          I wish I could find a shiny at least once. I'd even take a Bidoof and I would love it to pieces.

          Then go out and SR something!
          If the idea is just to have a shiny (not just to find one yourself), though, I'd be happy to send you one of mine. Two of the used games I got were jammed full of shinies and I'll never use them all.

          SR isn't the same thing though. Tom has told me multiple times to RNG a shiny and that's not even CLOSE to the same as finding one on your own, without spending dozens of hours restarting at the same place over and over again.

          I think it's close enough. I mean, you're still finding the shiny. It's not like you're using an AR to get it.

          Just seems like a faster way to get a shiny you want. As for RNGing, though, I have to agree with you. That's borderline cheating to get it, in my mind.

          Yea I think what he's getting at is the fact that randomly encountering one is just that, random. While SR'ing for one (still legit) isn't quite as random.

          I wish I'd get another shiny soon lol

          True haha. I guess it's not quite as exciting. I'm still going to keep SRing for shiny Drifloon, though.

          Pffft yes. I haven't encountered a shiny since my Golbat on White version last year. x:

          And yeah, you think it's close enough so you can go get your shinies like that. If it's close enough for you, that means it's close enough for you. It doesn't mean it's close enough for me.

          I tried SRing with the Masuda Method to hatch a shiny Charmander. It took far too long, so I tried RNG abuse to shorten the wait. It worked, although it took a few tries.

          I might try for a shiny Rayquaza in my Japanese Heart Gold though, once I get Kyogre.

          Oh, yeah. That is a while. x:

          I...didn't say it was "good enough for you". I was only explaining my view on SRing. :?

          Oh sorry sorry! I didn't look at gender haha :I I've never SR'd for shinies before. I'm guessing that'd take a while.
