My only "what nit not just happen" moment was on my Crystal Normal Mono Run. I was at the daycare, soft resetting, tryign to get an Igglybuff from the Odd Egg.... And I was only getting Pichu and Elekid and got a Magby and then a Tyrogue and I SRed without even paying attention since I was also watching TWD and then the next one after Tyrogue was a Shiny Cleffa and I was confused as to what shinies looked like over on Crystal so I checked it online, looking at sprites.
And for some reason, I clicked on the Tyrogue link first and then it hit me. That Tyrogue I SRed over was Shiny as well DX

I mean, I know the Odd Egg has a higher chance of giving you a shiny and all, but that was MY VERY FIRST hatched shiny ever so imagine how I felt >u<

If you'd like to play with me, you better be sure you know the game.

well, its not really a OH **** moment but i started playing the light platinum ruby hack and i made my name red, choosing not to go with the usual ash/ashley (my IRL name) and it turns out that one of the main NPC's is red from the manga. I was so annoyed.

also, I have never seen a shiny legitamatly apart from the red gyrados

I just got Pokerus for the first time last week! i was so happy. Got it from a wild Zigzagoon in Emerald. I could've cried.

The second one, and the more insane one, I was versing Champion Steven and i was down to my last Pokemon, Pelipper. It had no PP for anything except Protect and i had no ethers. I was done for so i started using Protect and no joke, it worked 4 times in a row without failing. I couldn't believe it.
Sometimes I make music.

Wild zigzagoon in emerald. Before I can get pokeballs. Yeah.

Also, the battle factory almost every time I go there.

Although i've played every Pokemon Game since the first release, I've never met a Shiny.
So a few months ago, i was playing on a randomized Emerald Rom, just for fun
I get my Starter, i get to the very first cave...and BAM! Lv.4 Shiny Tyranitar :D
Of course, i only have like 4 Pokeballs and dont get to catch it (

So yeah, i was pretty upset that the only time i get to see a shiny, there is no way i was able to catch it

Well, there was the time in the Battle Pyramid when I found that shiny Pikachu, and of course, couldn't catch it...Boy I was mad. And a few years ago, I didn't know much about Pokemon. So I found a shiny Ratticate in Pokemon Mansion on FireRed. I caught it. I restarted the save file some time later, WITHOUT trading my Ratticate over. Oh, maybe the time my sister found a shiny Oddish on either Emerald or Sapphire, with not even a Pokeball.

I purchased 100 of every pokeball in the game, except just 1 Master Ball.
I had False Swipe, Sleep Powder, Synchronize, EVERYTHING.
I checked online to make sure the pokemon didn't know double-edge or any suicidal moves.

You see, I was using the pokeradar to chain for a shiny pokemon. And after a few hours, I saw my first ever shiny patch. I switched over one of the lv1 Abras on my team to my lead, to activate synchronize, walked over to the patch and...

I ran into a non-shiny pokemon. Didn't I have a repel activated?! Yes. Then what happened? Repels only work if the lead pokemon on your team is greater than that of wild pokemon. I learned this the hard way. I lost a shiny pokemon, and my chain, just like that.

That did not just happen...

When I found my first shiny I had this reaction haha. I stared in amazement and disbelief for a while before attempting to capture it.

A Pokemon that is discriminated!
