I tried to breed one once but gave up very quickly afterwards. I wouldn't mind doing something like RNG or SR once I have a shiny already, but considering I've never gotten one I don't want to be manipulating the game to get one.

    It's kind of funny because today I was randomly fishing in Emerald and found a shiny Magikarp! Caught it and it has a MODEST nature of all things. I could of cried right there.

    I think Magikarp or Gyarados are the worst shinies to have. I mean, nobody would keep the Magikarp from evolving, right? Shiny Gyarados are far too common because of Lake of Rage. x:

      @Luke - Shiny and modest, like a pearl or tourmaline opal. Sounds like a beauty.

        I found a shiny Magikarp on the GTS in Gen 4 once, of course there's a chance it's hacked( though everything about it looks ok as far as I know) and I got it for a fairly reasonable offer. I don't feel like getting it checked though. I just wanted it to have.

        I once got a shiny Buneary off GTS. They only wanted a female Eevee 9 and under. <3

        Plus some Gyarados but, again, I no longer see shiny Gyarados as all that great.

          I also got a very legit looking Shiny Shaymin off the GTS for a Cresselia that Id offered up for any Shaymin. That was a long time ago and I just wanted a Shaymin having missed out on the events in Platinum( I didnt even realize Platinum existed till HG/SS were almost out)

          Someone on PC sent me a shiny Nidoran(M)...but it says the egg hatched in the mystery zone. x:

          I once encountered a Shiny Rufflet in White. I ran out of Pokeballs. Never got to find it again after that. fml.

          I would have named it Livey if I did catch it!

          Buuut in terms of other shinies, I got a Shiny Treecko from Rednael and I still have it. :3

            Its possible. I doubt many people would fork over a shiny Shaymin for a Cresselia. It might've been a clone of a legit one at least, but I dont really trust the legitimacy of any shiny on the GTS especially because people who hack can make them look really legit.

            True. x:
            I've cloned my shinies before, then found out about being banned from NWFC. I: A shame that you can't clone without potentially being banned. I would have liked to put up a shiny in return for a Bidoof or something- just to make someone's day. (:

            One time I tried breeding a shiny (with a Ditto) to see if a newborn shiny would come out, but that failed :\ I wonder if breeding with a (normal) Ditto had anything to do with that though

            Pst, I wish I could capture a shiny on my GBA games. Stupid internal battery died for all of them. And I never really got into the whole VBA craze (although I feel like that's old tech...)

            Chances are the GTS is extremely tainted. It's surprisingly easy to make technically legit Pokemon with computer programs.

            I only use them to replace my starters in Gen V but the same tool can be used for "darker" means, I guess you can say.

            Action Replay? Never touched it. I thought the idea of it was lame, to be honest.

            I just liked walking through objects. I got a DP Box that way. I wish I would have been able to reach Shaymin and Darkrai before it died.

            Yea, I never give myself shinies through that even though I can and I can make it seem 100% legit.

            There's no fun in that, so yea I only do it to get Pokemon that would be unobtainable in that region. i.e. Venusaur is my starter in White 2 haha

            I actually waited for the events for those two, and Arceus. Although, I always did think it was lame how they just gave us the Pokemon rather then the item needed to unlock the path to the Pokemon in game, ya know?

            I wasn't around for those events. D: But my used game had a shiny Darkrai, Shaymin, and Arceus. <3 Apparently some dude bought copyright stuff from Nintendo to do whatever he wants with the games, then sells them for $100+. So the shiny Arceus is technically legit, despite it being impossible. x:

            Whoa. That's pretty insane D;

            I wonder if anyone on PC (or at least a DCC regular) ever actually encountered a shiny legendary. I know I haven't.

            Pffft worth it to have a PC literally full of shinies. <3

            I haven't. x: Though I plan on SRing Lugia once I get far enough into Soulsilver to get it. Which reminds me that I need to SR for a shiny Drifloon haha.
