Shiny Pokemon, Ever caught one?

Yeah, I've had 2 shiny Pokemons.

My first was when I was going to Cerulian Cave (or however you spell it) and on the patch of grass before the water, I ran into a Golden Pidgey, at the time I thought it was a bug in the game, so I caught it... yeah.
I then evolved it etc, but then LOST THE GAME... fail.

The other one was golden as well, except it was a Mightyena. I saw it and got really annoyed because it was on an Emulator... fail! Since then, I've never seen a Shiny Pokemon, and I've never had a legit shiny Pokemon on my copy of Platinum/Diamond.

Also, I got a Shiny Machoke on Pokemon Rumble, but that probably doesn't count.

I have never caught a shiny pokemon (although I had a chance to catch a shiny Wingull in my Sapphire) but I did get a shiny Lugia over the GTC after trading my LV. 100 Heatran that I got from a friend.

--------------------
Not bragging, but I have lots of shiny Pokemon. The guides that people say actually work. My best shiny though is a shiny Dialga. I was so excited when I saw it in Platinum.
Hi! I'm dead!
 
Did you get the shiny Dialga by soft reseting or did it just pop up?

It just popped up. I would never reset my game 1200 times just to get a shiny.

There's also a way to get multiple shinnies of the same Pokemon .In D/P/Pl, there's a way to use your Vs. Recorder effectively and get a huge amount of shinnies all together. I'd post it here, but the guide's a bit long.

Hi! I'm dead!
 
All I ever get is GSC Gyara.

I did, however, see a shiny Caterpie in Ilex Forest. OHKO'd him... :(

I once had a friend with a shiny Feraligatr, though!

You hear dice being thrown...

Try 8,000 times. There's only like 1/8000 (actually the fraction is a bit smaller than that. I can't remember the exact number) chance of encountering a shiny. I once tried to get a shiny Rayquaza, but I gave up after a week of trying.

I have a shiny Milotic. It's level 50 and has a flame orb. I didn't catch it honestly. I went to a Pokémon Competition back in May '09. Everyone got one. Even people who didn't get a chance to fight (which really would of sucked to people who were actually good at the game, and to people who came from out of the state (yes there were people who came from out of the state to fight)) got one. I didn't get to fight, but at least I got some consolation, though, I really wasn't consoled.

I also got a shiny Geodude on my way to catch Azelf. Unfortunately, I didn't save before I went into battle with Azelf (I don't even know why I didn't. I always save before legendary battles), and when I ran out of pokéballs, I reset. But it was a catch 22. If I had saved afterwards, I would have a shiny geodude, but no Azelf, and if I reset (which I did) I would have no shiny geodude, but Azelf.

I have a friend who has FOUR shinies (including the aforementioned Milotic). The other 3 are indeed legitimate. He encountered one randomly, he encountered one using PokéRadar, and he hatched one from an egg. The last shiny I encountered was on Pearl version, which I don't even have anymore. I have Platinum. I haven't encountered a shiny since the Geodude incident, and how one gets 3 shinies in a short time span is just baffling.

Maybe I'll get one when HGSS comes out in America.... just maybe....
Like a month ago I restarted Pokemon Crystal and found a shiny pidgey while heading to Mr. Pokemon's house. You can't get pokeballs by that point. :(


Other than that, the only shiny I recall getting other than the lake of rage gyarados is an Ursaring in front of Mt. Silver. I really want a shiny Sandshrew/slash.
I caught a shiny Raticate in Diamond and a shiny Chingling in Platinum.
60% of the time, works every time.



All the time. The most recent ones were a Drifloon/Drifblim (which is a gols color with the little hand things white) a Slugma, Magmar (which is just a little darker) and Ditto.

I will become alive again sometime soon.
I caught a shiny! Then my game broke and all my save data was destroyed~

SHINY

~KoopaEater :D
Yes, though not legitimately. I used a Gameshark to catch a shiny Celebi in Pokemon Gold, just to bear the awesomeness of a shiny legendary.

If I remember correctly, I then used it to recapture my entire party as shinies. That was one sparkly team. ^_^
I caught a shiny Zubat in Fire Red once, even though I never used it. :(

My friend was breeding to get a Timid Feebas and at around his 3rd egg his Feebas was Shiny. He gave it to me because he didn't like the nature, but the nature is good enough for me! Shiny Milotic, Here I come!

I envy you right now.
I have a bunch of shinies in Diamond thanks to WiFi. My first one was a Milotic. :D Sorry, Adam. But the first one I caught was a shiny Seaking in the Safari Zone of FireRed.
I've only found a shiny legitimately once- I was in the Battle Tower, and one of the Pokemon I was against was a shiny green Espeon. Of course, since it was a trainer's I couldn't catch it...

I've used Action Replay, though, to find shiny Pokemon, though, like my shiny Chikorita, or my shiny Rayquazza.

I'm pretty sure that trainer's Espeon is always shiny, because when I went in there I fought some people and one used that same shiny Espeon. Shiny pokemon are only encounted randomly in the wild anyway.

I'd like to know!

But, did anyone know that if you breed a Pokemon with a foreign one (like off the GTS from another region version), chances of getting a shiny are about 1 in 2048 instead of 1 in 8195? :3
I have no idea what to change my layout it to...
