Your first shiny pokemon

#1rab103Posted 11/23/2012 3:13:10 AM
Have you ever ran into a shiny pokemon before? I'd like to hear about everyones experiences. Personally I've never ran into one so I might as well face it I've got the worst luck in the world.

Dude you don't have bad luck it's just when the odd's are 1/8192 for every single encounter it does seem quite stacked. All these encounters were luck based by the way.

First and only (not counting 100% chance of Shiny pokes):

W2
Sandile

Discovered OTW to Desert Resort the first time. Aww yeah useful Shiny. Shame I was doing a Mono-Steel playthrough, but it'll get a chance when I rematch the E4 with an all Dark/Ground team.

Not counting the Red Gyarados, my first one was either the Pidgey or Wobbuffet in Silver; I can't remember which came first.

SInce then, I've found a Swablu and a Zubat, both in Sapphire, and I haven't found another Shiny since... Though I have undergone three completely independent Pokerus epidemics (Platinum, SoulSilver, and White). Kinda strange, that was.

Yeah that's actually a point. Out of all the shinies I've found nearly half of them were found in the Safari Zone variant of one of the games and in Gold for some reason they seemed to appear when I was listening to the lucky number channel.

The first I ever saw that wasn't the scripted Gyarados was one of the Electrodes in Team Rocket's base. It proceeded to explode >.>

The second, and first I actually caught, was an Oddish at Ilex Forest.
