The first shiny Pokemon I saw was a Bronzor in Gen IV. Sadly I didn't know what it meant that it sparkled, so I just defeated it. :x

I've never come across Pokerus in the games.

I did the same thing with a shiny Voltorb . :lol:

Ironically I've come across Pokerus twice but I've never seen a shiny since.

In the Gold/Silver games I found a shiny Krabby, but then I caught a female shiny hoot hoot I think it's called with the last pokeball I had on me that I later evolved into Noctowl and named Goldie and she became a regular member of my party.

I have a shiny Yveltal and Xerneas from the event a few months ago. I haven't seen any shinies in the wild, though.

I thought I'd post this because it's genuis.

Amazing what you can do with a little creativity and an Arduino board.

How would one conceivably make something like that?

I just caught two shiny Psyducks this morning! :D

There are wires that go inside the 3DS to the button contacts so that you can easily trigger a button press through software. There's also a light sensor attached to the bottom screen so that it can detect how long the screen goes black. The shiny animation takes a little extra time, so the screen stays black longer than usual. Everything is controlled by a simple program running on the Arduino board which basically plays the game for you and looks for shiny Pokemon.

I decided to try chain-fishing last night. It took me about an hour, but I am now the proud owner of a shiny cloyster.

I almost got a Shiny Mewtwo in the GTS. If only one of my Eevee had been 9 levels higher. Oh well.

Just chained a shiny Shinx with the Pokeradar!

My cousin got a shiny Mewtwo on Leaf Green after hours and hours of soft resetting! He says it wasn't worth it.

Yesterday I traded my Shinx for a Zygarde. Yes, you read that right. It wasn't shiny, though, but now I have two Zygarde! 8O

Wow, that's awesome! Someone must've really wanted a Shinx bad!
When the Gen 4 GTS was still around, I saw lots of people (mostly from Japan) wanting level 100 legendary Pokemon for stuff like Bidoof and Magikarp. Exactly how do you expect someone to make that trade?

The funny thing is that soon afterwards I traded a Gardevoir I didn't need for a new Shinx! :lol:
One annoying thing that I've noticed is people wanting impossibly leveled Pokemon in exchange for rare ones [such as a Lv. 10 Amphardos for a Lv. 100 Mewtwo]. :wall:

I'm chain fishing for a shiny Feebas. In Emerald. What mysterious force made me do that is beyond me.

I'll say something later if I do find one! ^.^

Maybe I'll come back in a few years. Who knows.
Heck, maybe my account can serve as some kind of time capsule for myself in the future.

My first was technically in Pokemon Crystal, but I don't count those. I count my first as a shiny Onix I encountered training in Victory Road in Pokemon Platinum, not noticing it was a shiny until after my Rayquaza Ice Beam'd it thereby knoocking it out and ruining any chance to catch it.

Good luck with that! There's really no chain fishing to increase shiny probability in Emerald like there is in Gen 6, so expect to encounter thousands of Feebas before you find a shiny.
