In my first Pokemon game, Gold Version, I was surfing, and then I found a Shining Krabby, and I didn't even realize it. I ran away from it, because I thought it was a glitch in the game. Then, I was searching for a Shining Shuckle because I saw an episode about it, and I thought it was cool. But instead, I found another Shining Krabby! This time I caught it because I saw stars coming from it, so I knew it was a special Pokemon. Never found the Shining Shuckle, though. When I was training my Chansey on Route 7, left from Saffron City, after two hours of training, I found a Shining Abra, and I was thinking, "No way!" I was right, because I saw that I didn't have a single Pokeball in my pack. As you can see, I don't have good luck with Shining Pokemon. I switched off the game, turned it back on and bought new Pokeballs. I tried to search for the Abra again, not realizing finding a shining is 1/8000 chance. I was about to leave the route, but then, a Shining Kadabra appears, and I was really lucky. I caught it and trained to an Alakazam. It is a cool, purple Alakazam. Please post your first Shining Pokemon.
