    Default Oh No! That One Was Shiny!

    Has it ever been you're misfortune to accidentally Soft Reset away a shiny Pokemon that you've been trying extremely hard to get? Be it from getting into the habit of pressing either A+B+Start+Select or L+R+Start+Select as soon as you encounter the pokemon or from just not paying good enough attention? Or, have you been fortunate enough to run into a wild shiny but at the time you did not know what it was or realize that it was shiny?

    By the way I'm just making this thread out of curiosity because I've been doing a lot of SRing lately and really hope that the former does not happen to me. I just wanna know if its a very common error to make because I (unfortunately) could see myself possibly doing it.

    No it never happened to me. If I was looking for shinies I would look at every pokemon I would run into. But if I was running and getting through a cave that could happen.

    Sring takes too much time. Especailly on the diamon/pearl/platinum games cause the starting sequence TAKES FOREVER. but if you are going for groudon shouldnt be long if you are playing a gameboy advance/SP. But if your using a Ds the starting sequence takes about 5-10 seconds longer..

    Wow, that really sucks! I'd be so angry if I SRd over this shiny Groudon after all of these hours and hours and days and days.

    It could happen if the wild pokemon looked almost EXACTLY the same, like smoochum, for example. But its never happened to me.

    No, never SR'd because I don't go looking for Shinies, but I did once kill a Shiny Zigzagoon that I only realised was shiny as it was dying. ;_____;

    Oh well~
    Only Zigzagoon~

    No, it has never happened to me. Then again, I've never encountered a shiny in my 3 yrs playing Pokemon...

    I was to busy reading up on stuff to help me in my game to notice I ran away from a brown Staravia. I was like... wait... was that Staravia brown.

    The only Shiny I ever saw and even caught myself was a Female Nidoran. Way back in LeafGreen. So no, I haven't accidentally ran from a Shiny. But it would really suck if it happened to me.

I don't breed for the best Pokémon, I don't dwell on natures, I don't care for perfect stats and I don't care for competitive standards. I treat my Pokémon as partners and friends while bringing out their best. Feel free to copy and paste this into your sig if you feel the same way. (Started by Emperor Empoleon)

    Yeah, but my only failure was FAINTING a shiny! I found a shiny Koffing in Fiery Path in Ruby and I only had LV 50s with me...and I murdered it...

    Altho, I believed I could try to find another, and after I got a Magnemite, I found a shiny Torkoal!

    I almost reset on my shiny Kyogre, but like 1/2 a second before I pressed A to restart, I noticed it was shiny and let go of the DS with my right hand (so I couldn't reset).

    I breed shinies. PM me. You must have a Japanese version of the Pokemon you want me to breed. Doesn't have to be shiny. I want shiny or non shiny EV trained Pokemon or UT shinies that I don't have. Check my post in the Shiny Batch thingamabob.

    I was EV training a while back on my Pearl game, and didn't have any pokeballs of any kind, and I ran into a Shiny Fearow. All I could do is say screw it, and faint the thing for the speed EV's.

    Urgh, yes, I've had tons of shiny fails!

    Around a week or so ago, I was soft resetting in front of the Member Card Darkrai on Platinum while I was reading something online, and the shiny came up, but I accidentally soft resetted it away without thinking... oh the shame.

    When I was playing though Platinum, I came across a shiny Gastrodon right when I was out of Pokeballs (and, as a matter of fact, just running to a town to get them :U).

    When I first chained Kirlia, I found a shiny at a chain of three, but got so excited that I accidentally killed it. :U

    The other day, I went into my old Silver for no reason (the internal battery was still alive, surprisingly), and found a shiny Rattata, but right as I was about to catch it, the batteries in the Game Boy died. That was just plain' unlucky. :O

    The first time I played through Sapphire, I found a shiny Lunatone, but killed it before realizing that it was shiny.

    I've also had many fails with the Poke Radar, accidentally missing shiny patches and/or being dumb and forgetting to put on Repel when heading to the patches. Or having ARTICUNO COME UP WHEN I'M CHAINING MALE NIDORAN. Anyway, that's pretty much everything. XD

    SRing off a shiny never happened to me, the only time a shiny escaped me was a wild Poochyena in Emerald, before gaining the ability to buy Pokeballs >.<

    I had found a shiny Spearrow on my leafgreen, and I didn't have any pokeballs either.
    Darkness, and light become one
    Beneath this heart shaped moon.
    Sometimes, the line can seem blurred
    To even those of good.
    And now, even once good friends
    have turned against each other.
    Yet there seems to be, no escape...(no escape... no escape...)
    Will you run away? Will you run away,
    To the castle ruins of yesterday?
    What can become, of this hopeless endeavor you seek?
    What hope can it bring?
    Will you run and hide, or stand tall and fight
    Against all that you have ever believed in?
    And watch as crimson tides consume this
    World that never was.

    Wow! You have both great luck and terrible luck at the same time. You are lucky enough to run into shinies but everytime you do whatever can go wrong seems to.

    You mean, like running into a shiny Giratina by chance, and having it kill itself with struggle because you didn't have a Master Ball or a status inflicting move like Thunder Wave to compensate? Uh, yeah.
