I just caught my first shiny... A Zapdos and it took me 1,8,24 soft resets to finally do it!!(5 days worth pretty much)... The funny thing about it is it appeared while I was watching pokemon while showing my friend next to me how to prove to him that the Zapdos that just appeared well it was a shiny!!!... and while actually watching the Pokemon Series online.. (Back to the Zapdos)...I threw a random pokeball at it!! and knew it would sparkle the second it broke out of that pokeball!!!.. well guess what?? I ACTUALLY ended up catching it on that VERY try!!.. lol I'm more than stunned about this whole situation.
My next shiny Pokemon to be hunted: Lugia
