pidgey and it used whirlwind. I lost a voltorb due to it blowing up (I was chaining for ev training, not a shiny, so I wasn't prepared). I can't imagine running into one where it would run away.
abra, ralts, or kirlia; exploding voltorb, electrode, or graveller; whirlwinding pidgey; or beldum (since the only move it learns is a recoil one). If it can't kill itself and it's not going to struggle any time soon it's a waste of a masterball.
Thunderbolts and Lightningrods!
My XY trade shop: offering IV breeding leftovers, special Pokeball females and egg move parents!
maybe 10 mins ago, I was battling some Woobats with my Dewott. I find a Roggenrola and I think, "oh great, another one". then I hear a sparkle noise and I see a purple-ish Roggenrola. I'll train it once I beat the E4, I wasn't planning on using a Roggenrola.
edit: I don't save very often, that is my downfall... my DS was in my pocket. I take it out to find it off, and I forgot to save. it's gone, but it had a crappy nature, though. lowered defense and raised speed. so... the only legit shiny I've had was a shiny Nidoking (which is an AMAZING shade of blue) from a pre-evo (forget which one) from the safari zone, and a green weedle that I fully evolved in crystal, just to see what it would look like. I have neither...

i have 238 shiny pokemon. 104 of them are different species. 6 random and 1 traded. the rest are pokeradar shinies!
I don't think I'll ever understand how people hatch thousands of eggs. Just a few hundred to get a syncing abra of every nature has driven me nuts (still missing impish somehow). I'm going to keep trying to see if any come out shiny though, I'm starting to think it'll happen before I get the impish one. P:
Random encounters just seem so much less boring than egg hatching, even when I'm doing things online while hatching. I decided to pop into Wellspring Cave every now and then to see if I could get a shiny roggenrola... didn't happen. Though this did:
So I'm not going to complain. P: I was a bit worried when she burned herself though.
I'm quite puzzled.. I got a Shiny porygonZ from the GTS and its location placeholder is ----------, I tried looking around on the internet in knowing what that means, but no result, I'd like it if someone could tell me what it means
I found a shiny Pidove in White, which is now a shiny Unfezant. On one of my versions, I can't actually remember which, I found a shiny Ditto - which is now on my Black version. I have two Dittos - one shiny and one not, but simply because I like the shiny one more, I always use that one for breeding. Also, about half an hour ago, I was surfing around Route 1 looking for a Feebas (it was taking ages to even come across any Rippling Water) and I gave up and thought I'd try fishing for one. Not only was the first pokémon I encountered with the rod a Feebas, but it was also shiny! I'm really not fussed about the look of the shiny Feebas, but I've just looked up shiny Milotic and am very much looking forward to getting one!
Unfortunately I didn't encounter any random shinies in B/W yet. The most recent one was a shiny Bellsprout on my Nuzlocke run in LeafGreen, on November 11 last year. First encounter on that route too ;)
The only shiny I ever encountered was a shiny Machop in SS. It was at lv 12 and all of my other pokemon were at such a high level so I just threw a pokeball at it. Thankfully it worked =)
Look Forward, Team Rocket!
Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)
my frist and only shiner is a meditite. at the time i did not know what a shinie was but luckly i hadent regisered a meditite on my Pt pokedex and cuat it. i thought a another trainer released it cuz it had that littel star marker on its profile page XD
The only non-hacked shiny I've ever seen was a Shiny Rattatta on a friend's Gold version. Until today, when I bought a used copy of Platinum. Whoever owned it before definitely hacked or glitched whatever, the pack has 995 of everything and freezes a way down the inventory. Also has a shiny Slowpoke, Koffing, Wingull, and two Gyarados. (Not to mention a couple dozen pokemon at 100) It's tempting to keep it instead of starting a new game like I planned, but forcing something to be shiny kinda eliminates the specialness, to me. Anyway. Maybe someday I'll see a legit one.
