One of the biggest problems of the other Shiny discussion was that you could only post shinies from THAT set of games.

Well now we can post ALL shinies!

RULES:
Same as others including:
No spamming
Stick to the topic
No "2 more eggs hatched" or "7 more resets"
You CAN post shinies you HAVE had.

well let's get started!

^ So did you get three shiny Bulbasaurs, three shiny Mudkips, etc. or are you counting the evolutionary stages as one seperate shiny? 'Cause we don't do that here. Or else, I'd have over 22 shinies :p.

I don't have much. Only 11 shinies. They are:

Kyogre
Armaldo
Steelix
Nidoqueen
Mawile
Victreebel
Swampert
Gyarados
Vaporeon
Parasect
Porygon2


And, as you all know, I'm after a shiny Lileep.

I have I have 6 shinies if counting evolutionary steps. But we don't do that, so I'll only count 3

Pelipper, Charizard, and Alumineon(if you read a certain fan-fic, you'll get it)

Yes I have all three of the Cyndaquli line. I accidently ran from a shiny Fearow. I didn't notice it was shiny until I ran away. I am also getting a shiny Gloom from my brother, which I will probably evolve into a Bellosom. I am currently hatching eggs for shiny Absol.

If you have emerald you can always use the stat reducing beries so long as you don't get to level 100. and considering there may be some changes to the stat/move relations then you may wanna wait til diamond/pearl come out if you intend to upload em.
I will prolly have to do the same with my shiny vileplume

My 3rd-gen shinies are as follows:

From Ruby: A Groudon. I just about had a heart attack when that thing decided to show up shiny, and I think they heard my reaction to its appearance in neighboring counties: "THAT THING IS GOLD!!!"
From Sapphire: Spinda; Crobat, caught as a Zubat; and Walrein, caught as a Spheal. Sapphire has given me more shinies than any other game.
From Fire Red, Leaf Green, and Emerald: Nothing yet... =(

ShinyFufu
24th July 2006, 6:56 PM
When egg hatching, I personally would go thru the grass a little bit in hopes of finding a wild shiny as well as getting a shiny from an egg. Just make sure you move around a lot. And in Emerald, make sure you have a pokemon with the ability Flame Body or Magma Armor in your party; it makes the eggs hatch faster.

And u shouldn't double-post, there is an edit button if there is something you want to add but no one else has posted yet(sorry for mini-modding)

~Whismur, I caught it about two weeks ago while trying to pick up tm 26
~Raticate, I caught it on fire red, but my sister 'borrowed' my game last week, traded it onto her FR, and now, she's lost her fire red cartridge! Great... Well, I guess that's my punishment for stealing a shiny from her. What goes around comes around...

All the shinies I've had experience with, in order:

Girafaraig - Sapphire - Found in Safari Zone. Got near twice, threw a Safari Ball. Shake 1, 2, 3... It breaks out. Then, it runs away. I think I threw my GBA at the wall there >_>

Unown V - Leaf Green - I'm trying to catch all the Unowns, and BAM, a shiny Unown V. After my shock wears off I throw an Ultra Ball, and it's mine. I named it V-Man. I was in tears of joy :P

Sharpedo - Ruby (friend's) - He caught it with a Super Rod off Pacifidlog. Later, he restarts his game without trading it over. He didn't really know the value of shinies.

Pikachu - Fire Red (same friend's) - He caught it in the power plant. he won't give it to me, he knows how rare it is now after I yelled at him for erasing the Sharpedo >_>

I finally found(and caught) my first shiny Pokemon on Emerald, whilst on my holidays. It's a shiny Whismur with the Adamant nature. I've heard that's a decent nature for an Exploud, so here's hoping I can raise it well.

I've encountered: Shiny Nidoran male in Silver, which was too weak for any of my Pokemon to weaken and not OHKO(all mine were at least level 90 at this point)

Shiny Jolteon in Emerald, which appeared in the Battle Pyaramid. As items are not permitted, I could not catch it. I was annoyed.

^ I'm totally addicted to Ace of Abra.

Anyways, I did not find a shiny paras in mount moon while I was training, probably because I was there for an hour. I searched for a shiny abra, a couple of encounters, eggs, and SR's, no luck yet. I also started looking for a shiny Charmander. I hatched a couple of eggs, no luck. I may restart one of my Leafgreens to start SRing for it, Well, back to shiny hunting...

I have two shinies to my name.

One is a Rhyhorn that I captured in the Sapphire Safari Zone. (Was lucky it didn't get away.) Not sure that I want a pink Rhydon, but... meh.

The other is a Nidoran(M) that I captured in the FireRed Safari Zone. (Double the luck!) I WILL make it into a blue Nidoking eventually.

Odd that both shinies were in different Safari Zones - and I got 'em both. They're in Safari Balls to prove it. :)

I restarted my Emerald, and I'm trying to get a shiny Torchic as my starter.

I have a question about shiny starter Pokemon.. You know how before you choose your starter they show you picture of it? Well, if it's a shiny, will the picture of it be shiny, or do you stll need to send it into battle to find out? o.o *feels stupid*

I just traded my shiny Crobat for my friends shiny Golem. I think its a wierd thing to do seeing as though both of them are amongst the most common shinies but overall I feel as though it was a good decision for me as i hadnt even looked at my shiny crobat for months and it was basically rotting in my PC. Now i have a new shiny tthat i can use and i havnt really lost anything major.

I just traded my Shiny Medicham to my Leaf Green from Sapphire. I found and caught a Shiny Nidoran Female in the Safari Zone, and I'm so lucky to have caught it too! It's now a Nidoqueen that will go under training after my Shiny Meganium. ^^

I'm just going for that Shiny Sceptile now. >.>;;

Mmm, it's a new Shiny Thread, and with each new thread comes an introduction. I'm the proud owner of fourteen shinies. They are:


Linoone: (Omega) Met on Route 121 as Linoone. Way back when I was still in high school, I was sick with strep. I decided to pop in my Sapphire for a little bit and this was the first (and only) thing I ran into.
Jumpluff: (Fluffy) Met at the Memorial Pillar as Hoppip. I was training a Quagsire while waiting for laundry to finish.
Exploud: (Fiona) Met in the Rusturf Tunnel as Whismur. I was effort training a Numel (Kamloops) in there when it came along.
Porygon2: (Shinnix) Met at the Celadon Game Corner as Porygon. Soft resetting over the course of a few months during spare time. Little-known fact: I was going to name him, "Blunix", but forgot amidst the excitement. Then the name just stuck.
Hoppip: (HipHoppip) Met at the Memorial Pillar as Hoppip. Effort training a Flareon this time.
Dragonite: (Olga) Met at the Celadon Game Corner as Dratini. Had it been a male, I'd have named him "Orff", for the composer, and it suits Dragonite's awkward appearance.
Ludicolo: (Dora) (the explorer) Met on Route 114 as Lotad. Found maybe half a year into my quest for Shiny Seviper. It began June 2005 and lasted for 9 months. I never found the bugger.
Ariados: (Apophis) Met in the Pattern Bush as Spinarak. I fell in love with the looks of various shiny bugs (notably Beedrill and Ariados) found in the Pattern Bush, so I moved all my Pokédex and level training there. First shiny found on a bus.
Camerupt: (Nanaimo) Met on Route 112 as Numel. Pseudo effort training a Gardevoir in preparation for the 13374 on Emerald. (That Gardy kicked their as*ses BTW.) It just randomly came along. It was Bold due to Gardy's Synchronize. I think there's a correlation. (game-specific, of course)
Altaria: (Shuko) Met on Route 114 as Swablu. The result of resuming the Seviper Hunt. Pokérus and two shinies would have been a more rewarding haul had I actually gotten what I came for. The name comes from the first hunter (and a vet) at the SHC to have a shiny Altaria. I was also considering Mayhood, the name of a member here at SPPF (who's long since left, I believe) whose name was previously, "Shiny Swablu," the Coveted Gold Swablu.
Pidgeot: Met in the Berry Forest as Pidgeotto. I'd moved my Pokédex and level training (so-called "passive looking" >.>) to the Berry Forest in the hopes of encountering a shiny Drowzee/Exeggcute.
Butterfree: (Petal) Met in Viridian Forest as Metapod. Leveling up a Slakoth for Pokédex purposes, I believe. I was hoping for a Weedle/Kakuna, but this will do.
Fearow: Met on Route 11 as Spearow. Moved my training here in hopes of a shiny Drowzee without the risk of a repeat Pidgey family member. It was technically the same day I found Metapod when I found this. D: (Metapod was after midnight, this was the morning after.)
Politoed: Met on Four Island as Poliwag. First shiny found fishing. Trainer Iruka got me liking shiny Seaking. Checking its routes, I found that Poliwag (whose shiny I like more) was found wherever Goldeen was, so I settled with Four Island, where there's a high Poliwag rate and a low Goldeen/Magikarp rate. Two days later, the sky blue Poliwag appeared on my line.


Whew! I think that's everything and in order. (I'll edit if there are any mistakes.) So yeah. I have a lot of shinies. I'm currently looking for shiny Treecko by saving in front of Birch's bag. I've been at it for two months and found ~11477 Treeckos. I haven't found anything, not even a (n uncatchable) shiny Zigzagoon, which is disturbing and demoralizing.

Is this the place to discuss the shiny glitch? If it is, what is it?!
I've searched for it and could not find it. I've heard talk about it, and I've asked, but no one is telling me.
Anyway, I have Rhyhorn and Sharpedo. Found Sharpedo as Carvanha while Feebas hunting on Ruby, and found Rhyhorn on LG in the Safari zone while Tauros hunting.

None of my friends do either. It's like we're cursed.

Shiny's are all about luck and effort,you can go through millions and no see one,on the other hand side you could encounter one in the wild at your first attempt
