Thread: The Shiny Encounters Thread

    Default Re: The Shiny Encounters Thread

    My first ever Shiny was in Pokemon Pearl. I was using Action Replay frequently, so when I saw a random Blue Medicham in Victory Road, My 10 year old mind thought I had broken the game. I named it "Blue", and it's now forever in My Pokemon Ranch, because I had restarted my Pearl version without withdrawing the pokemon from it.

    My second shiny was in Pokemon HeartGold. I was going to Pewter City through Viridian Forest when I encountered a Shiny HootHoot. I, to this day, have no idea where it is LOL.

    My third shiny is my Shiny Dragonite, Which I had bred using the Masuda Method. It had both the correct Nature and the correct Ability, so I got reaaaally lucky. I named it "Barney" because... well... it fit.

    Default What shiny Pokémon did you encounter in X & Y?

    I've encountered a fair amount of shinies over the years that I've been playing Pokémon games, so I've listed them below, accompanied by way too large pieces of text. Enjoy!(?)

    Sapphire
    My first ever shiny was a purple Wurmple. I'd never heard about shiny pokémon back then (roughly ten years ago), so I thought something was wrong with the game. My collectors instinct told me that I should catch it anyway, and so I did. I showed it to somebody who then told me about shinies and their rarity. This caused me to be even prouder of my Wurmple.

    Diamond
    It would be years before I caught my second shiny: a Shellos (West Sea). A few months after that, I met a shiny Wooper in the safari zone, which, sadly, ran away after just one turn.

    SoulSilver
    Shiny Gyarados, but that isn't really rare. Belongs in this list though.

    Y
    This generation I've been doing really well in the shiny department. Without chain breeding, -fishing or shiny hunting, I've caught 4 shinies already :D

    -Electrike
    -Wartortle
    -Spoink
    -Nidorino

    That was my history with shinies. I'm glad to have been able to show them off.

    My history with shiny Pokemon is rather short, sadly '^^

    Pokemon SoulSilver
    Well, obviously I got the shiny Gyarados. I'm sure everyone who's played the game has. And around 2 weeks ago, I restarted the game, and got a female shiny Chikorita after 452 soft resets. It's my favorite Johto starter, and it's one of the few starters I prefer to have as a female.

    Pokemon Black 2
    Pokemon Black 2 was were I got my first ever shiny Pokemon (not including Gyarados). It was sometime in September. I was breeding for a shiny Misdreavus for my team (not evolving it 'til I get it on X) and one hatched after only 61 eggs, with a timid nature and perfect IVs in Attack and Sp.Atk. Right now I'm aiming to hatch a shiny Feebas, and I'm 250+ eggs in.

    Pokemon X
    On my first day with the game (October 13th, had to wait an extra day to pick up my copy) I found a shiny Furfrou while level grinding just after getting a Squirtle from Sycamore. I caught it after my second Great Ball, without attacking it.
    Then, the next day, I was on route 15/16 (don't remember which), and I was going to do one more battle before finishing for the night. I encountered a hoarde of Murkrow, and one of them was shiny. I managed to catch it with a Timer Ball.

    I found 2 shinies last night, it was a very lucky night for me.

    I got a shiny Wartortle in the Friend Safari. I was really looking for Frogadier but I caught the Wartortle anyhow. The second shiny encounter happened when I was taking a break from hunting and just catching Scatterbugs for trading and a shiny Fletchling appeared. I was pretty surprised, but it's just awesome how my shiny luck is finally turning around after going through X without a single shiny.

    Since starting my Kalos journey in October I have found two shinies to add to my success stories in previous generations. The first was a completely random Durant in Terminus Cave, while the other was a Magikarp that appeared on a chain of 21 encounters while experimenting with Chain/Consecutive Fishing for the very first time. Durant is untrained at this moment in time, but Magikarp has evolved into a generic gorgeous Red Gyarados and is currently undergoing EV Training. I love both of them and hopefully my luck continues!

    I was playing White 2 at around 2 in the morning and I fond a shiny Male Combee. Caught, and I saved and shut it off for the night (morning?) When I woke up, I started to play a little bit more before Church and I found another shiny Male Combee. Darnit, 2 males. :(

    The last shiny I got was in Y, which is all I play now. I got a shiny Butterfree and traded it for a shiny Clawitzer. My only other shiny was a rattata back in SS.

    Awesome! Guess you used the chain fishing method for Octillery? That's how I got a shiny Skrelp, which is one of my faves.

    I do have a question.

    I let my shiny Skorupi evolve in to Drapion in X and it appears to me as if the Drapion is not shiny. Is this a possibility that the evolved form is not shiny? It looks purple. I looked at the Gen V image of Drapion and he is very Crimson and Magenta... did Drapion lose shiny in Gen VI?

    When shinies evolve, they are still shiny. Its possible the shiny color is just different in Gen VI

    So far I've caught a Zigzagoon, Weepinbell, and Geodude. Hopefully some day I'll find an Eevee or a Ralts.
