I've still never seen a Shiny other than Red Gyarados.
I've been playing Pokemon for 14 years.
I got a shiny rattata in a playthrough of FR. At the time, I was thinking to myself "Maybe I should try to get a shiny legendary this time.. really rub that in my friend's fa- OH MY GOD A SHINY RATTATA WHAT" So I think it's kind of strange I was THINKING about shinies and got one.
Put it on My Pokemon Ranch on the Wii, and promptly corrupted the save file it was originally on, forever locking my shiny prize to the Wii's file. :( Oh well, it was just a rattata.
I've always wanted a shiny Ditto... did that pokemon chaining in Platinum... got Ditto chained up to 39 twice... no shinies.
Yep... been playing pokemon since the very beginning.. and thats all I've ever gotten. Hell I didn't even get the promo shiny legendaries from the recent gamestop events. Meh.
