I haven't yet but it hurts a lot when you fail to capture it after so many REs.

I've only encountered two shinies (I think) and I've got both.

Yes- two. They were a male Nidoran and Fearow, both in FireRed. I still regret both.

Onix in HeartGold... I was weakening it and was safe to hit twice with the move I was using and still leave it at about a quarter health. Of course the second hit was a critical.

Do you consider running away from a shiny Charmeleon a failure? It was my choice and I just didn't care because I already had a shiny one.

I killed a shiny Tauros in a horde. I only noticed one was green as I watched them all topple over, and confirmed it after the battle by checking the Pokedex. Oops.

Oh, and I accidentally released a hatched shiny Cubchoo in White 2, but luckily I had saved since picking up the egg and was able to get it back.
