    Unhappy My first shiny encounter

    I remember when I started playing my pokemon sapphire game, I walked into the forest not far from the starting point. Then a shiny Swellow popped up, but the thing is I didn't have any pokeball with me to catch it, so I had to let it go Have never found any shiny pokemon since then.

    I've never seen one to be perfectly honest. It's pretty depressing.

    I think it's worse to see one and not be able to catch it :'(

    My first Shiny (Minus Red Gyradose) I ever saw was a Shiny Zubat in Sapphire (I think), I ignored it sadly.

    Oh, I can only imagine, that would get under my skin. Though I always have Pokeballs with me just in case.

    For the first time in over 14 years of Pokemon gaming, I encountered my first shiny a few weeks ago on a play though of Platinum- it was a level 4 Abra- needless to say I couldn't catch it first time around and it Teleported

    Yanma, ran out of Pokeballs. Psyduck, ran out of Pokeballs. Graveler, used Selfdestruct. Pikachu in the Safari Zone, I miraculously caught! Boldore, caught. Petilil, ran away as I couldn't tell the difference.

    I think I might have encountered a shiny Sceptile in the Battle Factory once. I hardly remember though and I really didn't make a big deal over it.

    Pinsir in the Bug Catching contest in Silver.
    Took 2nd place.

    Then Geodude a few years later in SoulSilver.
    Caught both, but I deleted the Silver file (it was a good file, too, but I wanted to play it again and it's my only surviving GSC game), and I have no idea where my SS is.
    Haven't been on here since X&Y came out.
    The opposing Metagross used Giga Impact!

    Thankfully I have been able to catch all the random shinies that I have encountered (a Linoon on Sapphire, a Diglett on LeafGreen, and an Audino on Black).

    I found a shiny Milotic in the wild Pokemon rooms of the Battle Pike in Emerald. Wasn't allowed to catch it. A shame as Milotic is a cool shiny.
