    Nah, I never used it in Soul Silver. I did however, use it back in the old days when i played the original gold version. Funny story btw, I was on serebii looking at the newly announced HG/SS games, and I was playing my platinum version at the same time, fishing for lanturns to trade to my diamond version. Take a wild guess what randomly pops up after I reeled in my catch? A shiny freaking gyarados. I was so excited at first, but then I realized that with the newly announced gold/silver remakes, I had just caught the most common shiny in 4th gen. Suffice to say, I cursed my game for playing me like a fool.

      i too had a feraligatr that had surf lol. i almost never require a water hm slave cuz surf itself is such a good water move. and as for whirlpool and waterfall well i happened to have a dratini that for some reason i taught those to xD i was hoping to make it a dragonair before the elite 4 but alas nope

        I never found any interest in it. Also, I already had a water pokémon at that time (Either a Poliwrath or a Starmie) I only used it as HM Slave.

            By the time I got to the Red Gyarados, either I already had my Water type with me or I knew what it was going to be; usually it wasn't going to be Gyarados. So after I caught it, I'd either use it as my temporary Surf / Waterfall HM slave or put it in my PC Box. After that, well, you know...

                Yep, mostly as an HM slave, and for my Dream shiny Team, I will use it.

                  I'm not a fan of Gyarados, even if it IS shiny. I'm pretty sure I boxed it and forgot about it completely. It loses all of its value as a shiny since everyone can get it.

                    I think red Gyarados is cool, but when I played I never used it a lot.

                    In my first run, I caught it and temporarily used it as an HM slave. I later boxed it since I had no intention of using him on my team. I already had a water type, anyways. In my next run, I was doing a challenge, so I fainted the Red Gyarados. I used it way more in the original games, though. I was far more attracted to shiny rare things as a kid. :P

                      I never used it, because my pokemon at that point were ridiculously overleveled at like 45-49 and that gyrados was only 30 so not worth the training. :L

                        I usually pick totodile, which means i already have a water type, so i usually box it too

                          One who already planned his team

                          Anyways, Charizard ftw

                          In the old games, I think I used one, but not in the remakes. Gyarados may be a really good pokemon and a shiny one may be cool to have in a team, but I like to have an individual team and so I use shinys only if I have the luck to catch a random one. Unfortunatle in SS it never happened "

                            I always used him in the old games, simply because it´s a powerfull pokemon.
                            However in soul silver i didn´t.

                                No I didn't, I prefer to catch the first form of a pokemon and then train it up.

                                Also I didn't like using the gyarados because it felt like the game was giving me a boost and I didn't need a boost. (besides I think at that stage of the game my team was locked down, so no room for the gyarados anyway....I think in Soul Silver I was already using a Starmie.)

                                and as somebody else stated, it's nicer using shinys in your team when it's one you actually came across rather than something scripted that everyone will get.

                                That's why you should save before any important battles! At least, that's what I do. :p

                                  I actually did use that Gyarados,
                                  it wasn't very good at first. But later it became useful.
                                  Though it's not a part of my team now. I never used it since beating the game.
                                  But I might use it, if it's necessary that is.
