PostSubject: The Shiny thread.   Mon May 03, 2010 7:45 pm

*Inspired by SFG's shiny Steelix*
This thread we can talk all shinies from the Metal generation (Silver, Gold & Crystal) onwards.
How many have you caught, & where/how*..? (* = Via Action replay or any other cheating device, doesn't count.)
What shiny do you really want...?

This thread can also double as a shiny trade post, for those wishing to.
I will put down who has caught & encountered what shiny, once said.

Enjoy & discuss. =D

Caught & Seen list;
(Legend;
Jamy - SonicFanGirl - Jymaru
Anyone can catch
Anyone can see
* = Event shiny
#000 - MissingNo. = seen, but not caught.)

#016 - Pidgey
#019 - Rattata
#029 - Nidoran♀
#032 - Nidoran♂
#041 - Zubat
#043 - Oddish
#083 - Farfetch'd
#095 - Onix
#111 - Rhyhorn
#130 - Gyarados
#149 - Dragonite
#179 - Mareep
#182 - Bellossom
#195 - Quagsire
Quagsire
#196 - Espeon
#245 - Suicune*
#255 - Torchic
#257 - Blaziken
#262 - Mightyena
#265 - Wurmple
#297 - Hariyama
#299 - Nosepass
#323 - Camerupt
#562 - Yamask
#597 - Ferroseed
#629 - Vullaby

(I'm sorry Jya, but I can't add the Palkia & Dialga. As it is obvious the one who you received them from, used a cheat code to obtain them.)

The first shiny I ever encountered aside from the Red Gyarados was a shiny Quagsire in Crystal.

I really want a shiny Charizard, Rapidash and Ninetails though.

The first Shiny I ever encountered (Excluding the Red Gyarados on Silver, of course), was a shiny Wurmple on Sapphire, of which, evolved into Dustox.
On Gold, Silver & Crystal I had no luck at all, when it came to shinies.

This where & how I caught all my shinies, & what became of them (not including Gyarados, of course);

Wurmple (Sapphire) - Caught in the forest (which name I always forget. ^^; ) , caught at level 6, if I remember, correctly. It evolved into a Dustox & is currently on SoulSilver, in my "Shiny box".
Pidgey (Leaf Green) - Caught on the patch of grass, just south of Pallet town, at level 16. It is fully evolved, & it too is currently on my SoulSilver.
Rhyhorn (Ruby -> Sapphire ) - I obtained in a trade from a friend*, of which he was using my Pokémon Ruby cartridge. It is now fully evolved into a Rhyperior, & it too, is on SoulSilver.
Oddish (Pearl) - I found it by chance just north of the resort area, I caught it at level 18. I nicknamed it "Hanahime", which basically means "Flower Princess". I give it to my best friend, fully evolved. It is a Bellossom, & is now residing in their Pokémon Diamond game.
Mightyena (Ruby -> Sapphire) - I obtained in a trade from Ruby, that a friend once played... It is on my SoulSilver, also.
(* = That friend never comes round anymore... ;_; )

I would really like a shiny Celebi, though...it'd be awesome having my favourite legendary as a shiny, but obviously, just about impossible... ...Before you say...I know it's pink, I don't care about the colour...it's the rarity, & possible giver of said Pokémon...

Has anyone ever seen a shiny, but been unable to catch it..? I know I have...

Apart from Red Gyarados, I've had several shinies.

Blaziken (Diamond) Obtained through trade on GTS for Level 100 Unown
Zubat (Ruby -> Diamond) Obtained in Dewford Cave, Level 9. Evolved all the way to Crobat
Dialga (Diamond) Obtained through trade on GTS for Level 1 Ralts. I think the guy was rather pissed, because it also had a Masterball with it - a true sign of cheating.
Palkia (Diamond) Obtained through GTS for a Level 100 Dialga (aforementioned Dialga). Also came with Masterball.

I lost Diamond, so I dun have any of those any more.

I want shinies...

As do we all... If I find a shiny Staryu, it would be completely awesome.
I have seen a few more shinies, but never managed to catch them, & here's the list;

Hariyama (Sapphire) - I seen it on said game's Victory road. It used Whirlwind before I had a chance to catch it. Mind you, I only had about 7 pokéballs in total with me, so the chances were slim anyway.
Camerupt (Pearl) - I encountered said Pokémon on Stark Mountain. I didn't have any pokéballs to catch it, sadly...

I actually seen the Hariyama before I even knew shinies truly existed. I orginally thought the Red Gyarados was to go parallel with the animé, & it's colour had something to do with Team Rocket's machine.

OMFG I CAUGHT A SHINY!

It was in Ruby and I didn't really catch it... I was just very, VERY persistent with the Starter.

Shiny Torchic FTW

I'm going to migrate it before I evolve it, because I want to see Shiny graphic in HG :3

Wow, that is excellent news, Jya.
Out of the starters, I'd like a shiny Torchic myself. Well, maybe I'll see one, one day... ^^

Well, as we all know, it's all about luck & determination, encountering a shiny. If you keep trying I'm sure you'll find one.
I hope you do. ^^

By the way, has anyone seen Shinies owned by CPU trainers..?

I'm really not that bothered about shinys. I remember my friend going mad when he caught a red Gyrados. I was like, ' So? It's just a Gyrados!' but he was like 'WTF I'MMA EPIC NOW!'

I had some pretty insane friends.

CPUs never have shinies, their Pokémon are always preset.

Actually one or two specific CPU trainers do have a certain shiny Pokémon always in their team.
The first CPU to have so was a trainer in Trainer tower, on Pokémon Leaf Green/Fire Red. He had a shiny Espeon. I have actually seen said Espeon and battled it.

There is also a rumour that a shiny Lapras is owned by someone in Battle frontier on SoulSilver/HeartGold, but this is unconfirmed.
Very rarely; Wally on Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald has been also been known to catch a shiny Ralts, too.

I guess if you haven't any CPU shinies though, fair enough...
Have you ever seen your opponent(s) (CPU or otherwise) with a Shiny..? I have.

Yes, but if they have shinies then they're preset. It's not chance.

Random question: Can you use items in HG/SS Battle Frontier?

And I remember seeing someone with a Shiny Nosepass in Ruby...

No, you can't. If you see a Shiny within the Battle Pyramid, or Battle Pike which are located at Battle frontier, you cannot use items, but they still count as "wild" Pokémon. So if you see a shiny there, it's very unlucky indeed.
Though, seeing the shiny it's self is still notable...

I had a shiny spree =D

Farfetch'd - GTS for a Level 9 or under Cyndaquil (HG - Level 14)
Mareep - GTS for a Level 9 or under Charmander (HG - Level 3)
NidoranM - Wild catch (is now a Nidoking) (HG - Route 31 or something - the one to the north of Goldenrod - Level 100 now, caught at Level 13)
NidoranF - Wild catch RIGHT AFTER NIDORANM O_O (HG - Route 31 or something - the one to the north of Goldenrod - Level 14)
Dragonite - GTS. I licensed my brother to get me a Dragonite and he got me this one... Level 75 'n' all... anyone want to trade me for a normal Dragonite?
Hariyama - Wild catch (Ruby - Victory Road - Level 45)
Rattata - Wild catch (HG - First route after an hour trawling for one - Level 2)

You want Shiny Charmander?

Hmm... I'm yet to receive Charmander from Prof Oak...

Do you have Wi-fi?

*starts soft-resetting for a Shiny Charmander* Two is better than one :3

Yeah, bumping is allowed here since there's not that many of us.

Also I have a shiny Vullaby (which is now a Mandibuzz) and a shiny event Suicune.
