I've encountered at least 22 shinies over the course of my journeys.
This is why you don't use Repels :p


As I already said, nobody uses enough Repels to significantly reduce the number of shinies - they're just that rare. You're just insanely lucky or have been abusing RNG or other shiny-finding tricks (or have played a lot.)

Not counting the "free one" we all know... I've only encountered one in the wild, and it happened twice (two consecutive battles), it was a purple Drowzee. I caught him and was SO EXCITED - then the very next encounter was the same bleeping guy! I knocked him out since I already had the first one.

Never saw any ever again.

But the double encounter makes me wonder if there is a set time/place for each shiny, for a limited time.
My other signature is epic.

Of course the time and place matters, it's part of the game's RNG, but it's for a VERY specific time and it's random (hence RANDOM number generator), and you must've been extremely lucky or there was some kind of weird glitch in the game.

Legit shiny? No. I've played R, B, Y, S, C, Ruby, Sapph, E, FR, LG, D, Plt, SS, W, and B2, but I've never seen a shiny that was legit and not scripted. In Emerald, I did use a code to make Rayquaza shiny. God, shiny Rayquaza is awesome...

In the wild, I got two: one was an Absol (I was looking for one (even a female one, which I got) at the time, too! No one ever believes me, though. I guess it sounds unlikely, but it's true) and the other was a Geodude.

I've only ever encountered scripted shinies, like GyaraDOS and Gible.
If you like Absol then YOU ARE BAD PERSON
