Shinies!

I have a fairly cool collection of shinies in Y now. So I feel like being a jerk and showing them off. Note: I might have cool shinies, but I do have a shitty webcam, so the quality is not great.


The first shiny I obtained in Y. I was trying to breed a Protean Froakie when I randomly hatched this. I didn't even notice for over a day that it was shiny, and it was only when I was clearing the boxes of Froakie that I found it. It doesn't have Protean and it has a useless nature, but I really love it. Not only because it was my first in Y, but because the Froakie line is one my absolute favourite lines in Pokemon. Plus shiny Greninja is a babe.


I randomly fished this Skrelp up while looking for a Chinchou, only to later find out Chinchou was on a different route! It was fate. I presume I did it by chain fishing without actually knowing I was chain fishing... Skrelp and Dragalge are my favourite Gen VI Pokemon, so this one is another shiny I'm really happy I own. It's so grumpy and cute.


This Horsea I got when I actually tried out chain fishing to see what all the fuss was. So it wasn't a random encounter really. But it's cute and Kingdra is another of my favourite Pokemon.


The next shiny I found was a Dragonair. I found this in someone's Friend Safari (can't remember whose) while looking what they had. I'm not the biggest fan of Dragonite, and its shiny is pretty awful, so I'll probably keep it unevolved as a Dragonair, which I do like. It's pretty.


Another Friend Safari find. I LOVE the Shuppet line, even more now Mega Banette exists. So I'm really happy with this, one day I'll finally EV train it and have it as a shiny Mega Banette ^_^


I found this while stealing Heart Scales. I guess I chain fished it, but meh, it's Luvdisc so it's not particularly interesting. I do like shiny Luvdisc though, it's all golden.


Found this one in @CrackFox;'s Friend Safari. I oh so NEARLY ran from it because I wasn't paying 100% attention to my game (I'd only gone in looking for a Kakuna) but then I noticed its colour and caught it.


So majestic! I actually found this later in the same day that I found Drapion. I think it was @Bikini Miltank;'s Friend Safari. Goats are one of my favourite animals (I really want a pet goat, ugh) so I love having a shiny Gogoat.


I randomly encountered this shiny Pupitar on the route above Couriway Town(?) - the place with the train station anyway. It's kinda cool. I want to see what shiny Mega Tyranitar looks like one day, so I'll need to get around to evolving it.


Another Friend Safari find! This time in @Soulweaver;'s iirc. Shiny Klang is beautiful. Also this image shows how bad my webcam is - Klang is always rotating, so it's blurry. :/ I will be training this into a powerful Klinklang one day!


Two for one with this little fella! Found in Friend Safari but I can't remember whose it was. That's all that needs to be said here.


This one I hatched earlier today! I was breeding egg moves onto a Litwick from a Japanese Cofagrigus (I thought it was French, but I checked and it's actually Japanese) and the very first egg I hatched with the moves was shiny! It's so cute. And shiny. And Chandelure is one of my favourites and looks great when shiny. It's also Modest with Flash Fire ^_^


I hatched this one around an hour ago! Yes, two hatched shinies in one day it's like winning the lottery. Unlike thie Litwick though, this Cottonee wasn't hatched from international parents either - both the parents were hatched by me earlier. So I guess I'm just damn lucky. But look how cute it is! It's going to be a perfect Whimsicott and I love it and it's definitely one of my favourite shinies I own along with Froakie and Skrelp.


I didn't catch this one myself, I actually found it on the GTS a few weeks back. I think they were wanting a Houndour or an Electrike or something. I know it's chain fished, most likely, and chain fishing is easy, but whatever, it was an easy snag.


This beauty was traded to me by @Winterdaze; and it's one of my favourites. Golem has been one of my favourite Pokemon since back in the Red/Blue days when I was just a little kid! Now I have a shiny Golem and it's perfect. I actually need to train it too, because it has a good nature.

There. We're done. I hope everyone enjoyed.

NOW: You tell me which shinies you guys have found (if none, then I'm sorry :c ) and also which you want to find!

    I hate your luck.

    I have gotten one totally random shiny in Y. It was a Snubbull. Now it's a Granbull. That's it.

    Most of my shinies were from (very long) chain fishing attempts: two Skrelps, two Qwillfish, and one Dragalge (all were unintentional, before I knew what chain fishing was, and I was looking for other Mons). I've since traded one of the Skrepls and Qwillfish for certain Pokemon that I needed, but I still have the others. I also have a shiny Kecleon caught in FS (which, if it wasn't for the sparkle effect, I would've never known it was shiny, as the only difference is the zigzag stripe on its stomach), as well as a shiny Trevenant I got during a Horde encounter.

    That's a nice collection right there :p It's good to hear my safari has been useful, lol.

    I've obtained eight in X but haven't been really actively looking for some time now. Random Solrock encounter, six Safari shinies (Throh, 2 x Mankey, Breloom, Quilladin, Petilil), and a Masuda Method boosted Swablu, which happened to be my first and so far only Swablu in the game - I just bred one for the dex, lol. Would probably have way more if I had been spending more time on FS or tried chain fishing more than once but I've been playing other games and, more recently, hunting the banked legendaries on the GTS due to the bothersome delay.

    (okay, I did breed quite a lot of Duskull for Wonder Trade research earlier and virtually all of my eggs are MM boosted since I have a French Ditto parked there, but no shinies in that bunch)

    LOVE THE SHINY GOGOAT and Skrelp.

    I have a Shiny Mega Mawile (found in a Friend Safari) and a Shiny Butterfree (found TOTALLY randomly in Santalune forest).

    Most of the shinies I have found were from Friend Safari, though there are a couple exceptions.

    Safari Shinies: Pumpkaboo, Noibat, Shuppet, Sigilyph, Zebstrika, Frogadier, Gyarados, Skarmory, Chansey

    Fishing Shiny: Qwilfish

    Masuda Method: Trapinch (15 eggs, after failing with Noibat after 500+ eggs...)

    DANG that's a lot. Also, if you ever decide to get married, propose with that golden Luvdisc instead of a ring.

    I hatched loads of Honedge over the last two days and one parent was Japanese, but I didn't get a shiny. Then first Litwick egg I get is shiny. It's weird how it works.

    Granbull is cool tho, so at least it wasn't something... uncool?

    I really want a shiny Trevenant, it's one of the best shinies in the entire game.

    Shiny Breloom is perfect. I'm envious! I tried MM for a Honedge (it wasn't my main intention as I was IV breeding with a really good Japanese parent) and I didn't get one even though I hatched a load of eggs :( But the Litwick and Cottonee today both more than made up for it.

    Shiny Mawile is amazing! Maybe I'll get lucky and find one in there. Totally random shinies like that Butterfree are more fun than Friend Safari shinies, but a shiny is a shiny :D

    Aw I'm sure you'll find one soon. It seems they've upped the chances - they must have. Also Pokerus doesn't increase the chance of finding a shiny :/

    Pumpkaboo, Sigilyph, Frogadier (well Greninja), Gyarados and Skarmory are some of the best shinies in the game imo! Well done! :D

    You should evolve that Haunter! Shiny Mega Gengar is really weird. Hahaha all those Larvesta xD Meowstic is a really good shiny too tho.

    Well, if you'd like, I'll trade my Trevenant for your Drapion. Trevenant is okay to me, and while it's shiny form is really cool, I'm not super hyped about it in general. I know a lot of people like it, but it's just sorta meh to me. Plus, just an hour ago, I caught another one (though its nature is horrible, so I think my first one would be more satisfying to you). So if you want it, I'd trade it for your Drapion, as I've had zero luck getting one in general (the only one I've encountered was in the FS that I unwittingly ran away from, as I wasn't paying attention). PM me if this interests you.

    The only shiny I own is an Onix named Shiny (I'm a genius) in Silver. People are getting shinies like mad in X/Y, but I haven't seen one yet. The first time I saw an orange-flower Flabebe I got my hopes up for nothing. :c

    You tell me which shinies you guys have found


    I've shown off my shiny Sylveon before, but it really is my pride and joy. Not just because it looks pretty, but because it's kicked so much ass for me in wifi battles as well. I got this one by Masuda method.

    My others are Kingdra, Luvdisc and Skrelp (all chain fishing), Whismur, Yanma and the Geodude->Graveler I traded to Zeb (all random encounters).
    Leggo and Zeb like this.

    You should go chain fishing for some of those like Skrelp/Horsea/Corsoola! Get a Suction Cup Pokemon as your lead it'll help with the reeling in.

    I did the same with the orange Flabebe haha! Well I'm sure you'll find some soon, everyone seems to have shinies in XY. (If not, you can always try chain fishing for one!)

    Shiny Sylveon is best Sylveon! Shiny Yanma is really cool too. Shame the colour is... less cool when it evolves. :/
