I've never had this happen. But with the thought in mind I always try to have a good amount of Balls with me just in case. If it ever does happen again I would want the Pokemon to be around the level of mine so I can wittle it down than just throw Pokeballs and hope it works haha.

If this EVER happened to me.....


Yea. I think I would abandon my game for at least a week, or until I've settled my feelings with the loss.

Luckily that has never happened to me before.

..well, does restarting a game with a caught shiny in it count?....

    Thinking of you, wherever you are. We pray for our sorrows to end, and hope that our hearts will blend. Now I will step forward to realize this wish. And who knows: starting a new journey may not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun. There are many worlds, and they share the same sky - one sky, one destiny.

      This is precisely why I have resolved to chuck all of my balls at it (lol) (indeed ending with my master ball unless it's a patrat or something) and not attack it AT ALL. Seriously, I get the worst crits. OOH LOOK THIS LAPRAS CLEARLY HAS HIGH DEFENSE IVS---aaaand it's dead has been way too much of a thing for me lately... grr...

          Though, I never actually KO'd one, my DS would be shattered to pieces if it did happen.

          Although, a shiny Voltorb from Emerald used Selfdestruct on me. Didn't pick up the game for about 5 days.

          I actually killed a shiny before. I was chaining Ponyta in Pearl and I accidentally used an attack on a shiny. Meh, no biggie, since I got 7 shinies at the end of it all.

          Now, if I KO'd a random encounter shiny, I think I would go berserk and then cry.

          I don't want to see that ever happen, so I always carry around a Master Ball AND avoid the Safari Zone.

            I found a shiny Shinx at the beginning of a solo Budew run of Diamond (on a side note, soloing a game with a Budew is not fun. Terrible movepool and terrible stats. But I digress.) I was lying down and kind of half asleep because it was 1 AM, and my stylus slipped and hit run instead of bag. Was I ever upset. I just kind of sat there for a while, stunned. I probably would have thrown my DS, but I really don't want to buy a new 3DS. I intend to give myself a shiny Shinx through the use of an Action Replay next time I get my hands on one to make up for what I consider an unfair loss.
