Ah, gotcha. Does soft resetting work, though? (Thanks for the tips!)

I once caught two shiny Rhyhorn in the safari zone in Leaf Green within like 2 weeks of each other.... .__. --- !_!

The first shiny I've caught (beyond the Red Gyarados from Silver) was a shiny Paras in Pokemon Fire Red's Safari Zone.
The second shiny I've caught was a shiny Clefairy in Pokemon Platinum.
And I actually stumbled randomly on one today in White 2's Giant Chasm. A shiny Metang! This last one caught me so off guard (I was merely hunting for a Ditto at the time!) It also was such a pain to catch, but well worth it! --- Two is company and three is a crowd, four is an unruly mob, big and loud!

My first was an Onix on Crystal but in my noobness, I killed it. The first one I caught was a Hoothoot on Heartgold. --- It makes so much sense, it rhymes.

Finally caught my first shiny today, a Lunatone in the Giant Chasm. I was so excited.
I don't really ever plan on using it, but it is the first shiny I've seen in years, and definitely the first I've ever caught.
I MAY have seen a shiny in the original Silver, but the game deleted itself years ago, and I don't believe I caught it, and can't check anyways. So, basically my shiny list is:
Lunatone (White 2)
I started with Blue version, though I'll admit I haven't played all the games. Blue, Yellow, Silver, Leaf Green, and White 2 are my mainline games. And at least since Leaf Green, this is the first shiny i've seen.
So yeah, pretty happy. --- "Ironically, the word mature when applied to games tends to have a very childish connotation." -Erik J. Caponi of Bethesda Softworks

That would be a Graveler in Platinum. However, I was borrowing the game from a friend, so that shiny is no more.(Had decent IVs, too.)

Played for ever, ever since Pokemon first debuted in the states, but my very first shiny that isn't a red Gyarados was Petilil from an egg. --- ~~~PSN: YukiSeraph Persona 4 Golden: http://i.imgur.com/Ui84Q.gif

I was messing around in Safari Zone, trying to finish the national dex and I ran into a shiny Spinarak. Caught it on my second attempt. --- GT|| Phoenix6000 Currently Playing|| AC3, Halo 4, Pokemon Black 2
