    GUESS WHAT GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I finnally found the shiny torchic!!!!!!!! Heres the story i did 300 soft resets when i came back from school, then i had to go to karate. When i came back i was watching the border patrol tv shows on tv, when after i did 25 softies i saw it. I was so surprised my arms felt numb. I defeated the poocheyena ( yes i caught this shiny on Ruby no Emerald RNG) then i went to professor birch and got the torchic back and went to its summary to check its nature and it was JOLLY!!!! ^_^

    My next shiny hunt is gonna be Origin Giratina when platinum comes (hopefully it wont take 14,525 SR's) wish me luck ^_^ and happy hunting

    what luck, out of the 48 pokemon you can catch in pokemon colosseum, each with a 1 in 8000 chance of being shiny (i think), i caught a shadow granbull which was shiny! i checked the status screen to see a yellow granbull head on its health bar!

    Red? Don't you mean purple?

    Also, guess what I just caught.

    Last week, on Friday, I accidentally Soft Reset when there was a shiny Registeel on my screen in my "lucky" Ruby file. I have done about 6,200 Soft Resets so far, and it shone around the 2,900th Reset.

    I will update this post whenever I obtain another GameBoy Advance Gen. Shiny.

    Today is my birthday, i hope to get a shiny today. I going to hunt mostly for bug pokemon and totodile. good luck with everyone's shiny hunts.

    wichu, i'm a Girl and my ID number is 34625. I got 4 shinies on emerald. Two random shinies, voltorb and abra. I got groudon(958) and Kyogre(928) by Soft-reseting. So i'm going for tododile because i think my emerald is a shiny file.

    Congrats to all of those with shinies. I hope to soft-reset for one at some point, but I don't think I have the patience. x] I only found one shiny, and that was a random Clefairy a couple of years ago on Fire Red. See, I had restarted for a long plane journey, so I was passing through Mt Moon and there it was. I got some weird looks from other passengers. XD My friend evolved it, however I no longer have 'OMGSHINY' because I traded it for a shiny Azumarril in Diamond over Wi-Fi after I had Pal Parked it.

    I stumbled across something rarer than getting a shiny this morning: I won the Master Ball at the lottery in Emerald.

    But this is a thread where you post about shiny Pokes; not winning the lottery.

    As for me, I'm still SRing for shiny Lapras and Regice. Hoping Regice will appear so I can complete my Regi trio.

    My luck is back :



    I decided a while ago to SR for Mudkip in Ruby. When I sent out the 8th Mudkip, it was purple . Shiny Mudkip appeared in Ruby and I wasn't really trying. I didn't think I would get it, not when I got shiny Spiritomb yesterday.

    This is my first shiny in this game, so I'm pretty pumped. Mudkip has a Timid nature, and is male(I was hoping for a female, but a shiny is better than no shiny).

    More pictures:

    I'm currently hunting on One Island for a random shiny. I've been hunting for a shiny here for a few weeks, so hopefully something will shine soon.

    I recently started hunting for shiny numel in my 2nd Ruby in rt 112 where only Numel and Machop appear... 50/50 chance I get the shiny I want, and of course I get:

        Spoiler:- WAD!!:


    Yep the 'chop -___-' 6:20PM ish I was watching Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares and I went to get a glass of juice right as I was encountering something on my game. I sit back down and look at the screen, and go "Wait? what?! is that Machop brown?! Oh !%@$ Shiny!!!" I paralyzed it, then weakened it slowly with magikarp tackles, then I threw a Premier Ball and it broke out. A 2nd one did the trick and was caught. I nicknamed him Hulk since its evolved forms are green meh.
    Behold my "new" GBA SP retro, Ruby in the slot!
    It's Quiet...too Quiet *shifty eyes*

    The meh thing about it is I already have a shiny Machop that I caught on my FR back in '07. Though it is a female one (with better nature and stats ), so now I've got a male companion for it. And ironically that one was also random because I was searching for a shiny onix and that popped up instead. Machop cursed me twice Well least I got a shiny again. I hadn't gotten one since January. Hurray! Heh maybe its the start of a good streak...

    The first and only shiny that I've encountered in a 3rd gen game of Pokemon was a shiny Exeggecute that I encountered while meandering about the Safari Zone in Leaf Green. It's now a shiny Exeggutor, and I'm planning on raising it more when I get the chance. I'm currently re-playing my ruby for the sake of replaying it at current. I don't intend to restart my Leaf Green anytime soon seeing as I'm putting together quite the Pokemon collection on there.

    So right now I'm on night 2 of my SRing for a shiny porygon in Celadon game corner. I'd say I've reset about 50 times, not much. I'm afraid of giving in and just going with a regular porygon, I really like the shiny one!

    But anyway, here's my question: When you go to "pokemon" on your start menu, is the tiny sprite on your party page shiny too? it would save me time if I didn't have to pull up the summary every reset. thanks!



    Edit: Thanks oddsok for the answer!

    Unfortunately no. You have to check the full summary to see shinyness.

    Shiny Ponyta appeared tonight after several thousand encounters. It is my 7th shiny Pokemon in LeafGreen and my longest shiny hunt in this game so far. It has an Impish nature and has Flash Fire, the ability I wanted.

    Shiny Ponyta

    Will continue to hunt my secret shiny in FireRed. Hopefully it'll appear quicker than shiny Ponyta did.
