hahahahahahaahahahahahahah!!!!! jk sorry dude that sucks

30th April 2007, 2:19 AM
Wow, that sucks. Shinies usually show at the wrong time or when you least expect it..

30th April 2007, 7:06 AM
Speaking of lost shinies in emerald, I had a shiny zigadoon in my emerald. then my game said the save file could not be loaded because of corruption or damage. This was 16 hours into the game. I restarted, and then it said they same thing 20 hours into the game.

Do you think that it's doing this because of damage or is there a possibility it's a bootlegged cartridge?

Sounds like it could be a bootleg.

Wow, very unlucky.
At least it wasn't the Zigzagoon you fight at the start, or even your rival's starter.

30th April 2007, 9:13 AM
wow... suxs, when u have no pokeball when a shiny pokemon appears in the beginning of the game.

30th April 2007, 9:31 AM
Sorry to hear that. I'm very unlucky with my shinies because I've only come across two (not counting Red Gyrados) one I caught but I had to use my master ball because I was really desperate (this was a Numel) and the other one I had no pokeballs so I had to defeat it (This was a Maril)

30th April 2007, 9:52 AM
Oooohh that happened to me but this was a wurmple lol and i had no pokeballs..... so i restarted my game in shame and guess what, my rival's pokemon was shiny!!!!

1st May 2007, 9:10 AM
i almost caught a shiny zigzagoon at the begining of a game (dam critical hits )

also my sister found a shiny girafarig in the safari zone and failed to catch it

2nd May 2007, 4:34 PM
that totally sucks its like seeing a shiny latias with no masterball or pokeballs
but worse

2nd May 2007, 4:54 PM
that's tough luck.

3rd May 2007, 9:39 AM
Aww..poor you but at least u saw a shiny..i jsut captured 2 shinies in my whole Gb Life....

3rd May 2007, 1:31 PM
I've seen worse but that's definitely bad luck.

Pretty darn cruel.

Oh well, at least you saw a shiny.

4th May 2007, 11:07 AM
Lol. Remembers me when I was SR'ing for a Shiny Starter... The Poochyena who you encounter was Shiny, not the starter. That sucks.

4th May 2007, 11:06 PM
I feel your pain. Once, when I restarted my LG for my Scramble Challenge I ran into a Shiny Pidgey at the Beginning of the game when you can't get any Pokéballs. Since then I've never seen another Shiny in my LG. >_<

4th May 2007, 11:17 PM

so... it happened to me I got over it

5th May 2007, 1:02 PM
yeh, but judging from ur little message below ur name and ur pic of shiny charmander u've caught more than youve let get away.....

5th May 2007, 1:11 PM
I'm so sorry to here that.Well I ran in to a shiny AIpom safari zone and it fled.I cried.

5th May 2007, 1:17 PM
I was catching Dratinis in safari zone (before the 5th badge in LG) and iI ran into a shiny one! I was wery unlucky he escaped...*cries*

5th May 2007, 1:29 PM
Yep, when you're out of Pokéballs, in the safari zone... All bad places to find Wild Shiny Pokémon. I once found a Shiny Nidorina in the Safari Zone, and my heart was bouncing all around. Not crazy, because the Nidorina could fled every moment. After all I caught it though.

But yeah, it's bad for you. :/ Hope you'll have more luck in the future.

6th May 2007, 1:51 PM
I spent about 6 hours starting my Fire Red over and over to try and get the shiny charmander then when I did I jumped up and yelled YES! so my sister yanked out the cartridge and yelled LOSER!!

Virtual Chatot
6th May 2007, 3:21 PM
In restarted my emerald 46 times trying to get that Shiny Beldum...
and guess what? When I finally got it...
I loved and cherished it and rose it to a shiny metagross...

Hmm...what were we talking about?
Oh yeah...sorry mate

14th May 2007, 6:07 AM
AncientMew your story made me laugh out loud. :]

14th May 2007, 6:23 AM
I caught a shiny ryhorn in the safari zone and foolishly traded it to my cousin who hacked it to level 100 and now it can't evolve! I could have easily traded him to get it back to get a shiny Ryperior! And then my second shiny was an electrode. It was level 60 something. I attacked it and it was down to yellow. Then I had to make a choice to switch out to a breloom to spore it or throw an ultra ball in an attempt to catch it before it used explosion, which I guessed it would have. I switched and it blew up in my Breloom's face!

14th May 2007, 6:52 AM
Just take comfort in knowing you found a shiny.

14th May 2007, 10:13 PM
That's horrible. I feel your pain; I once lost a shiny Girafarig in the Safari Zone.

15th May 2007, 9:54 AM
hehe, thought i was going to have another miss-out-on-a-shiny sob story but no! I caught the lv 15 larvitar. only had 4 balls, and nothing under level 65 in my pack. i only managed to catch it using confuse ray to get its health down to red, and it almost killed itself b4 it snapped out of confusion. then i managed ot get it in a nest ball, so when it comes out of the pokeball it has HEARTS flying around it before the stars.
dear oh dear

15th May 2007, 11:51 AM
Wow, very unlucky.
At least it wasn't the Zigzagoon you fight at the start, or even your rival's starter.

That'd suck because whenever you fight your rival you would be given a PAINFUL reminder of what could have been....

19th May 2007, 7:34 AM
Aww, that sucks. I'm sorry to here that.

28th May 2007, 9:10 PM
I killed a shiny Magikarp once. I cried.

30th May 2007, 9:30 AM
i saw poochyena the same time you did i was gutted i had to turn the gameboy off :(

30th May 2007, 3:07 PM
Now I'm hunting a shiny Cyndaquil. for a shiny Typhlosion. No luck yet.

30th May 2007, 3:56 PM
I've only caught 3 shinies. Sandshrew while training (Thank God I carry around 50 ultraballs), Lairon while training, Magikarp from trade.

30th May 2007, 4:21 PM
After I get Cyndaquil, I may hunt for a shiny Whismur to evolve into Exploud. Always liked that Pokemon.

30th May 2007, 4:52 PM
i have cached my female nidoran in safari zone too, i like the black nidoqueen and i have a shiny rhydon that is also catched in safari zone when i have diamond i let it evolve

31st May 2007, 11:40 AM
Man that stinks, but be glad you didn't lose a whole bunch in a game. I was training and met a Shiny Roselia (I didn't even know what Shinies were back then, then my sis told me when I asked her) so I tried to catch it and made it faint by accident when I was weakening it. I was so upset with myself! Much later in the game, I also caught the following: Shiny Tentacool, Shiny Golbat, Shiny Zubat, Shiny Numel, and another Shiny Tentacool. Most of these I evolved to their final stages except the Zubat and Golbat. One day I stopped playing a while to play another videogame. And what happens when I try to get back? My save data has been deleted. Has anyone else experienced this horrible feeling?!

2nd June 2007, 10:59 AM
Heh. This is why I always keep a few Pokeballs, and go and buy some more when I run out. Keep yourself stocked up on them.

2nd June 2007, 11:05 AM
The EXACT SAME THING happened to me. I always train my starter to lvl 12 before I have the first Rival battle. When I was lvl 9, and training my treecko, I ran into a shiny poochyena! I ofcourse didn't have and pokeballs, and i was spewing.

2nd June 2007, 11:14 AM
Sounds like it could be a bootleg.

What's bootleg? It happened to my emerald too.

I had a Shniy nincada in saphire, which also deleted itself. I had a shiny Meowth in FR, which I traded to coloseum to see what it would look like, but then my little brother deleted it.....

Ms. Zira Fell
2nd June 2007, 11:57 AM
Hmm... I know how you feel.

For me - a fisherman in Emerald had a shiny barboach, a lady at the battle pike had a shiny meowth and there was a shiny Nidorina in the battle factory :{

2nd June 2007, 2:13 PM
Well for me the first time I ever saw I shiny Pokemon was in the Battle Tower..it was a Qwilfish..it sucks if you can't capture such rare occurences...

3rd June 2007, 12:38 PM
I've never even seen a shiny in any game, excluding the Shiny Gyarados, I feel unlucky...

3rd June 2007, 1:48 PM
I ALWAYS keep 10 Ultra Balls with me, so I can catch any shinies that pop up.

3rd June 2007, 2:17 PM
The only third gen shiny I've ever seen was Wally's Ralts in Sapphire.

3rd June 2007, 3:04 PM
Man, I feel sorry for you guys. I have seen 1 shiny, excluding Gyrados, and that was a Golbat in Meteor Falls in my Emerald. in the red, I only had lv. 60 pokemon, he was in the 30's, and every time I threw a ball, he broke free. I eventually caught him, my last ball too. I lost the cartridge a week later.

4th June 2007, 6:00 PM
lol, this doesn't even amount to the time I found seven shiny Zigzagoon while soft resetting for a shiny Torchic...on top of that, a couple of days ago, the Poochyena you encounter at the beginning of the game was shiny (I was soft resetting for a shiny Mudkip, and I still am), AND when I was soft resetting for a shiny Chimchar, the Starly at the beginning was shiny, too! I eventually got the shiny Chimchar, though. However, I do feel your pain, and I hope you can get a shiny to make up for your loss.

4th June 2007, 6:03 PM
so... it happened to me I got over it

yeah happened to my sis I mean yay shiny, but you can find another one its no big deal.

4th June 2007, 6:04 PM
I ALWAYS keep 10 Ultra Balls with me, so I can catch any shinies that pop up.

why wouldnt anyone keep extra pokeballs--of any type--with them?

My First Breloom
15th June 2007, 3:24 AM
I have a bad history of losing shinies...my first shiny was a duskull is ruby but my friend asked if he can borrow it and then he sold it...then i found a shiny sableye in sapphire but my other friend borrowed it and erased it then i caught a shiny machop in an emerald version rom but since its in my computer it doesnt really count..so right now i dont have any shinies.

15th June 2007, 3:57 AM
Ouch, that's horrible; I feel sorry for you. Look at the bright side (if there is one), you at least encountered a shiny pokemon.

15th June 2007, 3:59 AM
hmm...-sighs- i used to have a shiny male banette lv.100 but someone jacked my emerald! i found it as a shuppet near the safari zone in sapphire before i traded it to emerald. when i encountered it, i only had kyogre in my party [i was currently training it that time] and so i didnt have a chance to weaken it. while i was going through my bag, i only had a timer ball and a great ball left but i got lucky. the timer ball failed but not the great ball ^-^. ive been unlucky once...in my firered i found a shiny nidoran[M] but it ran off. i totally hate it when it comes to finding shinies in the safari zone. they'll run off easily. 0.000012205% is such a low percentage no wonder its so rare. so now i currently dont have any shinies...

15th June 2007, 3:59 AM
I've never even seen a shiny in any game, excluding the Shiny Gyarados, I feel unlucky...
You are not alone, I have the same bad luck.

15th June 2007, 8:10 AM
I ALWAYS keep 10 Ultra Balls with me, so I can catch any shinies that pop up.

10 ultra balls?? i always have 198 ultra's with me.
A few days ago i also ran into an shiny poochyena while soft resetting for shiny torchic.

15th June 2007, 8:41 AM
Annoying, yes, life ending, no.

Meh, get over it. :P

15th June 2007, 12:10 PM
On topic- That totally sucks dude. My friend ran into shiny rattata on his fire red at the beggining =O

15th June 2007, 12:11 PM
Soz for the double post, i got lagged =O

15th June 2007, 12:15 PM
I encountered a shiny Poochyena while SR'ing for Torchic, too. ^^;

Heaven's Illusion
15th June 2007, 12:31 PM
The only time I ever remember having a horrible encounter with a shiny was back when I first got my Leaf Green. I was at Mt. Moon raising my team. Bulbasaur, Pidgey, Nidorino, Beedrill, Pikachu (As far as I can remember). Since I remember catching all pokemon at Mt. Moon, I felt no need to have Pokeballs. All I had left was 3 Pokeballs. Sometime before I encountered the first of the Rocket Grunts, a Shiny Clefairy appeared (Level 7). I used Bulbasaur and Pidgey to lower it's HP down to Red and I used the Pokeballs. All of them failed to catch it so I just took it out with Bulbasaur resulting in a loss of a shiny pokemon and a gain of an Ivysaur. Eventually I caught a Shiny Clefairy by SR'ing in the Celadon Game Corner.

15th June 2007, 1:20 PM
Once I had no pokeballs with me and a shiny sandshrew comed across:@ me I was so angry I went to the store and bought 50 great balls and went to look for it(I tought it would be still there) but then I found a shiny skarmory and a shiny spinda and instead of a shiny sandshrew:D

The Shadow Knight
15th June 2007, 1:20 PM
I seem to be getting a shiny like every two months,zigzagoon 4 months ago,mankey 2 months ago and this month a shiny zubat.

17th June 2007, 9:28 AM
too bad, at least you saw a shiny!
the only shiny i ever saw was the red gyarados...

Shiny qwilfish of doom
29th June 2007, 10:03 AM
i was eating dairy queen while walking through seavault caynon.then a spearow appeared then a star sound sounded.OMG!A SHINY SPEAROW!i threw a ultra ball without making it take damage.then i caught it.(i was not paying attention at the time)

29th June 2007, 10:06 AM
OMG, that's never happened to me!
OMG, I feel quite sorry for you.
OMG, this is one big discussion over something small!

29th June 2007, 10:56 AM
ive only had 1 shiny encounters on 3rd gen, a Kecleon. luckily, i got it, but i said my mate could have a go on a new game, but told him not to save it. so what does he do? saves it! i should have given him sapphire instead of ruby. but i was kind of in a no-win situation. one had the shiny Kecleon, the other had a team of lvl 100's, i'd have lost out both ways.

the other time ive had a shiny was a krabby on gold and silver, which i caught and i think i still have somewhere, knocking around on the old games

29th June 2007, 12:25 PM
My shiny encounters:

Ruby: A Pikachu in the Safari Zone near the start. This was my first save file and first shiny and I was lucky enough to catch it and evolve it - it's currently somewhere on one of my friend's Sapphire game.
Restarting for fun, I ran into a Wurmple. I turned off the game.

Emerald: A Wingull on one of the sea routes as I was looking for Latias, evolved it and lost Emerald at my friend's house with Emerald (not the one with my shiny Raichu).

FireRed: My only current shiny, a Pidgeot. I saw it as a Pidgey in the Berry Forest exploring, and boy was I happy =D.

29th June 2007, 4:08 PM
that must be frusrating i havent seen a shiny since gyarados back in g/s/c/

29th June 2007, 6:36 PM
Im lucky, Ive always been able to get my shinies. Rattata in Gold, Rattata in Leaf Green, Anorithe in Emerald, Milotic in Emerald.

29th June 2007, 6:50 PM
That must've sucked.... I once saw a shiny Wingull at the beginning of the game and could'nt catch it. Though I did'nt know of shiny Pokemon back then.

29th June 2007, 9:40 PM
I've had debateable luck with shinies. I found a shiny Electrode at the Battle Tower, killed a shiny Magikarp, caught a Jolly shiny Zubat and found SHINY REGISTEEL WITHOUT SR'ING. And caught it. It helped to have 50 Ultra Balls and 10 Timers :) :) :) :)

29th June 2007, 9:51 PM
LOL How do you kill a magikarp, its like the easiest pkmn to catch >>

Nice on the registeel, I was almost as lucky, getting registeel on my 26th (approx) try.

No luck on shinies lately, but then again no luck >>bad luck.

30th June 2007, 12:13 AM
Wow, very unlucky.
At least it wasn't the Zigzagoon you fight at the start, or even your rival's starter.
im pretty sure that shinies can only apear in the wild and in the battle tower/frontier(with the exeption of a shiny espeon in fr/lg

Black Widow
30th June 2007, 12:16 AM
Shinies appear anywhere Pokemon are randomly generated, so yes, both your rival's starter and Wally's Ralts can be shiny.

Lordy, when are we gonna stop seeing the OMG threads?!?!? I know you feel bad about it, but is it worth posting a whole thread about it? NO. Hey, I lost shiny mawile, hariyama, exeggcute, and bellosom now, but I'm not crying. Please take this to the shiny discussion.

30th June 2007, 2:55 PM
I'm going for Shiny Gastly right now. I'm gonna T-Wave it, then throw Ultra Balls. If it Curses, it'll make life easier

1st July 2007, 3:30 AM
I once ran into a shiny Milotic in the Battle Pike on Emerald. I was really annoyed.

1st July 2007, 3:41 AM
I was so stupid. I restarted my game with my Shiny Zizagoon in it T_T. Obviously, it was because I didn't know what a Shiny Pokemon was.
And I also saw a Shiny Chikorita in the Battle Tower >.< .

1st July 2007, 4:03 AM
I got a shiny Altaria once, yet it got deleted along with a past save file...

1st July 2007, 7:43 AM
The same thing happened to my bro's friend at the beginning of diamond with a shiny starly.

4th July 2007, 1:44 PM
Like some say: that sucks.

(Well) Then
4th July 2007, 2:44 PM
I only ran into a shiny weedle in viridian forest, I only had 2 pokeballs and 1 of them it broke out of, I was freakin nervous, but glad i caught it.

My brother is a diffrent story, he was training his eevee on krabby and A shiny one popped up and neither of us noticed untill it said its cry and it fainted, my brother was to tired to notice! However, he mad up by catching a shiny whismur and carvahna.

4th July 2007, 3:52 PM
I have a shiny Espeon int he battle tower, well, it's not mine, but the person that has the espeon on double battles on fire red/leaf green battle tower has a shiny one, i see it everytime i do it.

4th July 2007, 5:08 PM
The EXACT SAME THING happened to me. I always train my starter to lvl 12 before I have the first Rival battle. When I was lvl 9, and training my treecko, I ran into a shiny poochyena! I ofcourse didn't have and pokeballs, and i was spewing.

Almost the same with me. In Sapphire/Emerald I train my starter to lv.10 before the rival battle, so a lot of the time I was muttering, "Don't be shiny, don't be shiny." It worked, thankfully. The worst luck I've had with shinies was back in the 2nd generation. In my gold file, I came across a shiny larvitar while training for Red, but my pokémon were all level 70-odds against this level 12 or so larvitar, and, without status attacks, all I could do was throw my remaining six ultra balls at it. It wouldn't stay in any of them.

I was extremely nervous when I encountered shiny girafirig in the safari zone in sapphire, but it stayed in the ball the third try. Also I had very few pokéballs in LG when I ran into my shiny dugtrio (and it took out my bellsprout, the only pokémon with a type advantage!) because I couldn't really afford to buy any more, but in the end it stayed in the ball.

i feel for u man i was soft reseting to get a shiny treeko and i saw 3 shiny poochyena in the battles it made me feel sad

Golden Rapidash
8th July 2007, 6:47 AM
Ah, hard luck man. I saw a shiny Wurmple once in the beginning and I had no pokeballs, but I just got ticked off but I got over it ;)

12th July 2007, 7:00 PM
Well, Golden Rapidash, shiny Poochyenas look a lot better than shiny Wurmples :P

I've never caught a shiny. But the other day I went in Victory Road on my friend's Sapphire and found a shiny Loudred after 3 battles. He won't let me have it. :(

12th July 2007, 7:22 PM
Dude that freakin' sucks! You've got to be the unluckiest person in the pokemon universe right now! Oh well better luck next time! I hope that you'll always have a couple of pokeballs after that, just in case.

14th July 2007, 11:40 AM
i saw a shiny shroomish in my emerald in that woods place anyway,i had 4 pokeballs and caught it in one!

shinys caught:1
