I was this close to getting s shiny Pidove.

Less than half an inch for those from the U.S.

Anyways, I was close. I was going out with my girlfriend last night, and she was going to meet me at my place in like half an hour, so I thought that I would play some Pokemon. I was killing Pokemon in the wild grass to level them up a bit, when she walked in. I noticed that she was crying, and so I asked her what was wrong as I continued to play the game. As she explained, I noticed that the Pidove on the screen looked like a slightly different colour than normal. Excited, I shouted a bit and prepared to catch it with an Ultra Ball. Then she comes over and yells in my face about how I'm not even paying attention to her, and that all I care about is my f***ing game. Then she took my DS, and was about to throw it, when she noticed that there was a shiny Pidove on the screen. She proceeded to catch it (she knew how to play Pokemon) and then said that the Pidove belonged to her because she caught it and needed it to cheer her up. I said f*** no, and started to take it back, when she punched e in the face and took off with my DS. This morning, I found my DS and game on my front porch in a bag, along with a note saying she was breaking up with me. I checked my game, but she had already traded the Pidove to her own game.

I was so f***ing close too, and I've never had a shiny Pokemon before aside from Gyrados.

I dont mean to seem douchey,
but if you have a girlfriend that understands the importance of shiny pokemon,
you do what you must to keep her around.
Either way, sorry for your loss (whether you take that to mean the Pidove or your girlfriend is up to you)

Everything in gen 5 needs a reboot like this.

I liked that she proceeded to catch it, and then bring it to her game, that one gave me a nice laugh.

I'm pretty sure this is copypasta, as i remember this same story but about a pidgey.

Similar, but different. Definitely based on the original pasta, though.

I should have just said f*** you and carried out my "threat"

And yeah, she made my nose bleed and my eyes water. I would have chased her, but I couldn't see and blood was dribbling into my mouth.

She left me, over a Pokemon game. Quite frankly, I'm done with both her and Pokemon.

...

Who am I kidding, I can't leave Pokemon.

Pics or it didn't happen...

I don't take pictures when she is wearing clothes, and she was at the time.

Thanks bro, that was my favourite part too.

It wasn't the same story...
