Generation 2, Pokemon Silver. Playing through it again some time after 4th gen just for some memories.

I catch the Lake of Rage red gyarados. On my way back to the shore, I encounter another shiny gyarados and catch it too.

Ho

Every 8000 something encounters you will find one. If you play the story of a game and never use repels ever by the end of the game you will probably find one. I have found a shiny pokemon in every pokemon game I played and on my firered and emerald I found 2.

Experience will make you become as close as God as you could ever be. But don't worry you'll never make it that far.

Here's the real question:

Would you rather see not one shiny? Or see 3 shinies that were the same species?

I've run into 4 Shiny Whismur and 3 Onixes between Gens 3-4. I've seen more than that, but still.

nup. There's a 1/8192 chance you'll find one. That doesn't mean that you'll find one every 8192 encounters.

Classic case of the gambler's fallacy right here.

LOL whatever, dude. I've never ran into a wild shiny Pokemon in my life and I've been playing extensively ever since they were introduced. Yet my cousin has only played through the games twice, and found a shiny Pokemon... My luck is horrid.


This is exactly how I feel.

I've been playing since red and blue. Never seen a shiny.

I got a shiny Litwick while EV training.
It was adamant. Of course it was.

Also, it had flash fire, so it can't even be used for hatching eggs.

Bloody. Typical.

I got a Ratata and Kakuna is the original Silver... and a Minun in Ruby. I think that's it.
