I've never seen a shiny in the wild nor ever caught one. Am I a failure?

Nah, you're not a failure, just unlucky. I felt like a failure when a shiny Voltorb self-destructed on me though.

But I also wasted a masterball on a normal female hippodown :(

This is exactly why I will never use a master ball normally. Just in case I run into a shiny explosive pokemon.

...as if I'll ever find a shiny q_q

I've seen exactly one legit shiny. It was a safari zone eggsecute in firered, which I managed to catch, thus using up all my shiny luck for the next two generations. At least, that's my theory. Seriously, I couldn't even chain past 10 in gen 4.

The only random shiny I've ever found was a suicidal Geodude in Gold 13 years ago.

I have a shiny problem. I don't see shinies in the wild, just in battle facilities. But man, does it get you drunk off your ass in a hurry.

Sometimes shinys are preset. I remember a shiny espeon in Leafgreen in the trainer tower.
Everyone else I know have shinies, mostly on FR/LG/E. (v_v)

I didn't spend much time with Gen III. I'm pretty certain that Gen IV and V do not have preset shinies in their battle facilities, but I need to look this up.
