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've never gotten a shiny starter on my own unfortunately. i've hatched an egg maybe or gotten some through trades? but i've never gotten one just on my own. i tried sring for a treecko once but ultimately gave up.
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.
"Unable to perceive the shape of You, I find You all around me. Your presence fills my eyes with Your love, It humbles my heart, For You are everywhere"
I did and I still am playing the game. I decided to mess around and soft reset a little bit as a joke for ORAS and who would've known, A shiny Mudkip appears. I screamed because honestly I never even expected it. Now I have my shiny badge quest.
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
