    I had a shiny Bellossom.

    I can no longer find it. I checked every game, and it wasn't on any of my game cards. I didn't delete anything at the time I was checking either, so it isn't like I absentmindedly deleted the game with it. It might be on my old Colosseum game, but I've lost that particular memory card.

    I have a theory that my excessive cloning in Emerald may have something to do with it, because my Nidorina went missing in the same way as well.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
    ^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.

    My first 2 shinies came after 720hrs of Gold save file, and 188hrs of play on Sapphire. My next 2 were Mawile on Ruby, and Geodude on LeafGreen. I had Mawile asleep and down to red health; I got nervous, started shaking and accidentally pressed "Flamethrower". With Geodude, who came about 5 years later, I again got nervous, my fingers slipped and I accidentally pressed "Run". FML.

    Then, whilst moving, my wife lost my Sapphire cart which had my first 2 shinies on it. Needless to say, four were gone.....

    Another "fail" of sorts, was my Niece's shiny. Her Dad and I had played through years worth of Pokemon, for a combined total of 3. She got a Zubat, in Mt.Moon, after 4.5 hrs of play.....
    You only get out of something what you put into it.

    My very first shiny encounter was outside of Floaroma Town on Ruby. I was just running through the grass to train my team, and I ran into a shiny Zigzagoon. I had no idea why the color was different, so I caught it. Then I got the (stupid) idea that it was a glitched up Pokemon that could ruin my game, so I released it. Looking back, I can't help but facepalm.
    Soon after this, though, I found and caught a shiny Linoone. Perhaps it came back to me after it evolved to give me a second chance?

    well that is a bit strange but i did that exact same thing in my silver game awhile ago my first encounter was a shiny vulpix i ran into it in the wild which i thought it was a glitch so ran away from it...my only failure in ruby or sapphire was i accidently erased my shiny tentacool i ran into while randomly surfing and btw my only shiny caputre was shiny linoone pretty ironic

    I've had a few shinies.
    Hatched a shiny Torchic in emerald, fully evolved it and kept it with me and transferred it all the way to my white.
    Next was Giratina, traded for on GTS.
    And I'm pretty sure my only other one was a shiny purrloin...or it might have been a liepard, i'm not sure.

    And the fail? I traded in all of my DS pokemon games. including my pearl where I had all the legendaries, event or otherwise...The single greatest moment of regret in my gaming life ;n;

    I have one main failure and one smaller one. The first was just after I got Emerald for my birthday. I found a shiny Girafarig in the Safari Zone. I then threw around 8-9 Safari Balls at it before it decided to run away. It was like it was taunting me by getting me so close, then breaking away at the last second. The second "mini-failure" so to speak, is when I found another shiny Girafarig... in the Battle Frontier. I took great pleasure in reducing it's hit points. Hopefully that's the last time I defeat a shiny but you never know.

    I've been playing Pokemon for more than ten years and have never run into a shiny (until X and Y's chain fishing). My sister picks up a game and immediately finds a shiny Pikachu. -headdesk-

    I have never found a Shiny in R/S/E, so I can't have had a 'fail', but I would rather see a Shiny and Fail, then never see one at all. It will give you some inspiration to find, and capture it again!
    Too much water guys!

    I caught a shiny Tailow right outside of the gym your father owns. It was my first shiny ever! I was so excited but I decided to trade it over to another game....I forget if it was fire red/leaf green or something later but when it went to the other game it wasn't shiny anymore. At first I thought I might have traded the wrong one so I went back to my game and checked the PC. Sure enough it was gone and so was my shiny Tailow. :C I was so angry. xD I barely found out what a shiny was and that Tailow being a random encounter really was depressing. I caught a Ursaring the other day and my game froze right after the battle ended. Ugh.

    Hmmm well let's see...

    The first shiny I ever encountered was a Shiny Geodude in LeafGreen/FireRed. Seeing as how I had no freaking idea as to why it had a star around it and to why it was a slightly different colored, I killed it. :c

    And then in Emerald, I bumped into a trainer who had a shiny Nuzleaf. This was in the Battle Tent... thingies so unfortunately I couldn't catch the Nuzleaf and had to faint it. I never knew it was possible to bump into a shiny in the Battle facilities until then.

    Well...

    The first time I played Sapphire (I was around 7), I ran through a shiny Lotad. I noticed that it looked weird but ran away nonetheless. The next day, I asked my Pokemon-loving friend and he told me that it was a shiny and it was extremely rare.

    I probably cried after that--_--

    Shiny Geodude, when I was about to throw a Great Ball, it used Selfdestruct.
