    I found a shiny Quilfish in FireRed. I was so mad that I didn't have any Pokeballs.
    All of the other shinies I have are events or the Red Gyrados and the Shiny Haxorus in the Nature Preserve.

    My first encounter was with shiny zubat in leaf green. I caught after a couple of tries. But i couldn't use it. Next time i was super lucky. Cuz i found a shiny charmander as a starter. But the game crashed. After that i encountered a seaking in fire red and an ekans in Pokemon gold. But i didn't capture them. I really don't know why. But i wasn't in such a mood to do it.

    Not really a failure of mine but it sucked.. Found a shiny red gyarados on my ruby.. The most common shiny, or most well known atleast
    Was just training on them in sootopolis or however it's spelt... Caught it.

    The only shiny I legitimately encountered was an Oddish in Emerald, but I one-hit KO'ed it

    It was a bright and sunny day in the wild fields of the Safari Zone. Lurking through the tall grass, I encounter an unusual looking animal. This animal, Rattata, was a light shade of green, and it looked at me fiercely. As I began to decide whether to throw a Safari Ball or bait, I knew that there was this small chance of it running away. I was thinking of being safe, so I threw bait at it. Well...this rodent just fled the battle, and away did it go with my hopes and dreams of trying to find another wild shiny. (Caught a shiny magnemite today in the wild, so happy )

    I encountered a shiny electrode inside team aqua's base in Emerald, the ones beside a nugget and the masterball, and then it used selfdestruct.

    What a waste.

    I find a random exeggcute in the leafgreen safari zone. It is GOLD! I'm all like O.O I throw a safari ball, it doesn't even bounce, the pokemon broke out, and ran away. I'm pretty sure I started screaming.

    I'm in diglett's cave and I have one normal pokeball. Suddenly...
    A WILD DUGTRIO APPEARED! It's shiny!
    Ashiemore puts it to sleep and knocks it to like 2 HP. Throws the pokeball...and it fails.
    Disappointment. Was my second shiny ever.

    I really need something to put here.

    I don't remember the details but I accidentally knocked out a shiny Oddish once while playing Emerald. I was younger, and wasn't very careful battling it.

    I have Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Fire Red (Used to own another Emerald and Leaf Green), and collectively I have played them for over 800 Hours, but I have never seen a Shiny. That is a fail in itself...

    Well, no, not in R/S/E because my game doesn't like shinies in R/S/E... but I did get a Shiny Arbok in the Battle Factory and as you know... YOU CAN'T KEEP THOSE POKEMON. T_T

    I decided to restart Sapphire after several years. On Route 102 (I think), I encountered a shiny Poochyena. I didn't want to kill it so I had Mudkip (my only pokemon at the time) use its weakest attack, Mud Slap. It resulted in a critical hit causing Poochyena to faint.

    All my shinies have been successful so far i found a Geodude in Firered, and Shinx in Diamond both random encounters. Its the first one i hvae ever
    caught that could be considered a later failed.

    I caught a Mantine in Gold, i was so excited when i caught it. Years later the game battery
    is dead and it will work only in the gameboys battery. When it starts it resets the game instantly.
    Now my Mantine is lost forever.....

    I have two bad shiny experiences.
    1.) Shiny Groudon in Ruby Version. I have it at very low HP. It dies to my Pokemon's Poison Point ability.
    2.) Shiny Ralts in Emerald Version. The one that Wally finds in the wild.

    My first encounter with a shiny was at the beginning of my second restart of my diamond, and I ran into a shiny starly, (at the time was not a hunter) in short I freaked out and caught it. I was also afraid to evolve it because I thought the shininess might have gone away. AAAaaaanyways so in emerald I was running around like crazy for a shiny vulpix that evolves into a ninetales (my favorite shiny). So I was clawing my eyes out on day 3 of running through the same patch and voila! there she was! So i hit her with a fire punch , which is a relatively weak fire attack on a fire pokemon so i expected like half health. Which by the way, would have happened until I got a critical hit. So I said screw it and then I got a couple of vulpix and bred like crazy! I have her back now!!

    Yeah... I've been dashing after a shiny latios for ages, but it kept fleeing over and over I ended up trading it for a lv30 non Shiny Riolu. Don't ask me why seriously... I once had a shiny eevee and I evolved in into espeo... Bad choice do never do that shiny espeons are disturbing...

    I have actually never encountered a shiny pokemon in the Hoenn games, sadly. Hopefully I will soon!

    Shiny Rhyhorn in the Safari Zone. Was before anybody had heard of Rhyperior as well, so it would have been nice to have a gen IV shiny right out the gate, but alas, it fled of course.

    I found a shiny Wurmple in Emerald, evolved it into a Beautifly, transferred it to Platinum, then deleted my data without trading it because I forgot it was on there!
    On Black I randomly found a shiny Minccino and deleted my data cuz I'm an idiot or something...
    On SoulSilver I found a shiny Sandshrew in the Safari Zone and same deleting scenario...
    WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??
    I have claimed Glaceon!

    I started a new emerald game. One of the starters was shiny. My sister pulled out the cartride. I was like NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The world needs more weird people who know how things work and who love to figure it all out.
    Being different is not a crime, and people who tell you it is are just jealous that you've picked up a skill they never in their wildest dreams could acquire.
    You can code. They cannot. That is pretty dang cool.

    My brother had to have the worst luck with his first shiny. You know that Poochyena that chases Prof. Birch that you have to battle at the start of the game before you get the Pokéballs? My brother had that thing be his first shiny. He was so upset he had me battle it and make it faint because he was so upset. Poor guy. Still I have the biggest shiny failure: my first and only shiny is a Bidoof and I caught it. :P
