Well, last Saturday I bought a Pokémon Leaf Green game (which by the way it kicks larges amount of ass) and two days later I found (and caught) a shiny Persian! It was my first shining Pokémon in a long time since the G/S/C era (heck, I haven't seen a single shiny in my Ruby game, except for a Breloom in the Battle Tower). Which is something strange is that just a few minute ago I caught a shiny Meowth, so now I have both shiny Meowth and Persian. Isn't that curious? I'm planning not to evolve the Meowth, because I think having the two of them looks cool, don't you think?
