Edit: Also, I forgot that I recently in Pearl got a shiny MEW in exchange for a level 100 Skarmory, from some random Japanese person over wifi.
heh, that's happened to me too, except I can clearly tell the mew is hacked. (It says met at level 0 in the info thingy) I think I've also gotten a shiny ho-oh from the GTS too.
I just got one too, except mine isn't hacked and not shiny. It's the one from the 10th anniversary wifi event that happened in november, and the mew wasn't even used. Brand new. Anyways, I'm still playing heart gold and havent run into anything shiny yet. Wish me luck guys.
Now I just got a shiny Machoke which evolved into a machamp. They wanted a zapdoz, and I had 2 so I gave the guy the weaker one. 2 shinies in a day! I'm on fire. The thing looks legit, it has legit moves and was caught in a repeat ball at level 27. I sure hope it is.
Thanks. I'm aiming for females, that way I can breed the foreign pokemon with my pokemon which will lower the shiny appearence rate in egg hatching. It goes from 1/8192 down to around 1/2400. That's not exact, but it's way better than the previous chances.
I dont play pokemon anymore but the best shiny and only shiny I got was a black zubat, then it evoled into a black golbat. Im unsure if it envolved into abalck crobat as I havent palaye dpokemon in yeaqrs...
Well in Pokemon Ruby I once saw a golden Swablu but I spent all of my darn Pokeballs trying to catch a Solrock. I didn't make it :-(
Then, I once caught a shiny Zigzagoon.
Later, I caught a shiny Spinda, and at the end I caught a shiny Odish.
I evolved it into a Gloom and then I wanted to evolve it into a Bellosom but I had no Sun Stone. Awww, man!
30 minutes into my first play through of Silver, I came across a shiny Bellsprout. I had no idea what it was at the time and I wasn't able to use pokeballs yet, so I Ko'd it to level up my Chikorita. My friends then forever dubbed me the worst Pokemon player ever.
-------------------- I wonder what a HFD opcode would do in ASM...
Well I guess you could say I'm kind of lucky because I've never had any shiny pokemon get away. That's not saying much, though. I've only ever caught a shiny Linoone (random on route 123) and a shiny Teddiursa (looking for a Ledyba in Emerald Safari Zone) I've tried to chain for more in D/P but even knowing all the tricks I can never make it past a 20 chain. :< I guess I'm unlucky when it comes to that.
