I remember one time in HG I encountered a shiny Metapod when all I had was a Totodile twice it's level and had 2 pokeballs. First throw failed so I reluctantly attack, and predictably, I get a crit and OHKO it.
In Black, I meet a shiny Mienfoo in Victory Road. Not knowing its moveset, I try to burn it and use a dusk ball when it's health was low enough. When it gets to yellow health, it jump kicks and misses, losing the remainder of its health. All this time inbetween it only used the other 3 moves. If I had known about jump kick, I'd have chucked my master ball at it immediately.

Camr across a Shiny Ponyta while levelling on Soul Silver. Used a move I knew wouldn't kill but lower its health to a 1/4 only to get a crit and made it faint. I was so annoyed I didn't play the game again for 2 months. --- PSN: Sonic_1985. Clan: HTK Jeremy Clarkson for Prime Minister
Chaining Ralts in Platinum. Get a shiny one, it's male but I catch it. Come across a female. I try to chat it and it breaks out. Then it uses TELEPORT. Not only escaping but breaking my chain. I was so sad. ;-;
Also, I chained a shiny Sneasel for a good friend. It took me a while but I wanted to do this for her. So I find one and trade it to her. A few weeks later I asked her how it was doing and she says, "Oh I erased that game and started a new one."

In Leaf Green, I encountered a shiny Pidgey before Professor Oak gave me the Pokedex and Pokeballs. I should have thrown a rock at it to make it faint, but knowing my luck, I'd probably hit a Spearow. --- Pokemon White 2 - 4642-6775-0048 http://www.youtube.com/PokeJMTL
My sad shiny story, the fact I have never found a single shiny ever... except programmed ones. --- in the name of MAD, you gots to move like Jabba! Official Flareon of all boards, PB2 FC: 4384-9811-8600
Three years ago when I hadn't found a single shiny pokemon, my little brother came up to me and said, "This ponyta looks weird, what's wrong with it?" Of course, it was shiny and I told him to catch it right away, he did so successfully. Six months later after the release of HG/SS, I have still yet to find a shiny, my brother tells me, "Sweet! I just caught a shiny rattata!" Why did my brother get all of the luck? --- Pokemon Black FC: 4255 6415 8428 I am me. Nobody else. Got it memorized?
