Koffing is one of my favorite Pokemon
I would have simultaneously cried, **** my pants, and shove my Gameboy up my ass

If someone killed a shiny and only cried for 20 minutes he'd better get the red carpet treatment into the Salty Spitoon.

My first shiny was an Ekans in Crystal. Not too great, I felt obliged to keep that little bastard in my party, but I don't really like Ekans/Arbok. Got a shiny Poochyena in Ruby though.

Yes
User avatar #44 to #17 - Mahazama (01/16/2013) [-]
That'd take a long ass time bro, you'd have to walk all the way over to whatever legendary it is you want, beating all the gyms on the way.
And you reset everytime.
#77 to #17 - John Cena (01/16/2013) [-]
Yes you can. It's better to 'soft' reset. Takes a long time.
User avatar #211 to #17 - aerius (01/17/2013) [-]
technically yes [but not in the original gold/silver]. Could take a loooong time though.

yes ( this is what some people do with their lives)
#18 to #17 - macjo (01/16/2013) [-]
yes but it takes a very long time
the ods are around 5000/1
so i hope you have alot of free time
User avatar #20 to #18 - cumsinbucket (01/16/2013) [-]
just for a different color and no stat change. no thank you I'll have fun with regulars
#21 to #20 - macjo (01/16/2013) [-]
its not for the color its for the honor

only one I'd consider
#73 to #20 - John Cena (01/16/2013) [-]
Shinies actually have poor IV's and will usually have lesser stats than regulars but worth it XD
#131 to #17 - dannda (01/16/2013) [-]
yes you can. i did this with rayquaza in ruby and after 1 week or so i battled him and he was shiny! pretty awesome i must say and i still carry him on my game to this day

My shiny story? For me to have a shiny story, I'd have to actually meet a shiny first. I've owned every game capable of obtaining a shiny in, and have yet to meet a single one in my thousands of hours spent playing. I've even tried forcing a shiny encounter through some methods in my pokemon pearl playthrough out of desperation. I've given up trying to catch the ever elusive shiny pokempn a long time ago.

Pokeradar chaining isn't all that hard, it just something you have to get a feel for.

Okay listen up bitches.  Firered, caught a shiny Pidgey outside Pewter City, got roared by a shiny Growlithe outside of Celadon.  In Ruby, caught a shiny Makuhita in the cave on that island early game, caught a shiny Wurmple on like the first route, and got roared by shiny Aaron in the final cave.  MFW all the other stories are of only finding one and most of those failures.

I was on my way to deliver Oak's Parcel, one of the first things you need to do in the game. So I deliver it, and leave the Pokemart. I start down the road when I remember there's a path that leads to the Elite Four/Victory Road over to the left. I decide "Why not?" and go over to see it. Walking into the tall grass for a few steps, when I find a wild Pokemon. I think it'll be a good experience battle so I don't get too annoyed. As I'm watching the pokemon slide into frame, I notice the color is slightly off. "...no 			*******		 way..." and right before my eyes, a shiny Rattatta appears! I was so excited! ...until I remembered one crucial detail...I didn't have any pokeballs yet... I left that battle with my head held low, and accepted my horrible defeat.   
Later on in the game, I get to Cinnabar Island. I decide to walk around in the mansion on that island for some experience, maybe find and catch a Growlithe. So I'm just walking, defeating some pokemon here and there. So I'm about to leave when another wild pokemon appears. And I watch. I watch the pokemon slide into frame. I notice...it has a slight color difference than usual. Another. Shiny. Rattatta. I have been given another chance! I go straight to my bag and go for the Ultra balls, I'm not taking any chances of it fainting. I select the Ultra ball and feel victory of catching a shiny inch its way ever so close. When a message appears. "Box is full. Change boxes to catch more Pokemon."    
I closed my Game Boy. Lied down. And cried myself to sleep.

I picked up that Gold/Silver remake they made for the DS. SoulSilver, I think it was. I was walking down that road between the first two towns, and decided to go up to the bottom of that road that comes from Blackthorn CIty. First pokemon I see in there is a shiny Geodude. Now he's a Level 35 Shiny Graveller...and he's brown. Why...Why did they go from making it grey to making it brown as a shiny? Still, though....shiny Geodude.
User avatar #157 to #11 - yolocopter (01/16/2013) [-]
Same exact thing happened to me except it was a Sentret. I started to cry and then i realized that it was a sentret...
#172 to #11 - John Cena (01/16/2013) [-]
But...

If you had to change boxes, that would mean it was one of the original titles.

If you were on the remakes for Gen I, you wouldn't have to swap boxes to store it...

I'm smelling STRONG ******** somewhere.

I don't understand. The pc change thing was taken out gen III. Shinys weren't introduced till gen II. The only possible games you could have been play were fire red leaf green. ( A gen III game).
#230 to #11 - lordxdanswich (01/17/2013) [-]
Every game from Ruby and Sapphire onwards automatically changes boxes. And shinies didn't exist in Red/Blue/Green/Yellow

I call ********

I feel for you. I just started fire red just got charmander, bought to start my journay, my first 2 steps in the tall grass, there was a shiny pigey no pokeballs. Me seeing a shiny for the first time, I couldn't do nothing about it.

why ?
#118 to #11 - sandyravage (01/16/2013) [-]
What? In what game do you have to deliver Oaks Parcel and still have to change boxes? You sir are a lying sack of **** and should kill yourself.
User avatar #23 to #11 - yutakenusername (01/16/2013) [-]
"Box is full. Change boxes to catch more Pokemon." ? As in the PC?
User avatar #25 to #23 - theapocalipz (01/16/2013) [-]
Yes, I couldn't quote it exactly but yeah.
User avatar #26 to #25 - yutakenusername (01/16/2013) [-]
What does that mean, though? Your PC was full..? Sorry, this has never happened to me before, so I'm oblivious to the situation.
User avatar #27 to #26 - theapocalipz (01/16/2013) [-]
It used to happen in the older games. Needless to say I'm glad that it changed as the games progressed. Used to be, you had to manually switch your boxes once they were full in order to allow more pokemon to be caught.
#133 to #27 - John Cena (01/16/2013) [-]
except there were no shinies in the original pokemon so **** you i'm out
User avatar #81 to #27 - goodguygary ONLINE (01/16/2013) [-]
older games, as in red/blue/yellow?
User avatar #28 to #27 - yutakenusername (01/16/2013) [-]
I was never one to catch many Pokemon. Only the Pokemon I wanted on my team and legendaries so I suppose I never came across this. I never knew that either, that would be horrible to experience my friend.

If FireRed/LeafGreen, **** you no box switches.
Now what?
#224 to #61 - hewhoepicfails (01/17/2013) [-]

You don't deliver Oak's Parcel in any of those, and the mansion was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in Generation II, leaving only the Pokemon Center.

Either way, he's full of **** .

In my Sapphire version, I got a shiny Absol, and I transferred it to my Diamond because I loved the **** outta that thing. My brother replayed his Ruby version recently and as he was leaving the first town, he found and caught a shiny Poochyena, which later evolved into a badass shiny Mightyena that was bright yellow and black.

**** was so cash.
#67 - celestiasbeard (01/16/2013) [-]
Can't remember what my first shiny was but Electivire was my first shiny I got to lvl 100 and I loved him until the day my brother sold my DS with the game inside
