Was actually able to go out for the Dratini event a couple months ago and I caught Five Dratinis, one of which I evolved to Dragonair, and another one up to Dragonite.

The other day I was at the gas station and decided to boot up Pokemon Go while I waited. I hadn't caugh anything yet that day so when a Poochyena popped up I clicked on it and was presented with a shiny gold dark dog. I caught him and am now just wiating to get enough Poochyena candies to evolve him into a Mightyena.

And with April's Community Day, I got a whooping 6 new shinies of the Mareep family for my collection.
Decided to split these 6 as 2 per evolutionary stage. For the rare collectible factor, I evolved the Level 1 all the way so it could get Dragon Pulse.

I caught my 3rd Shiny Magikarp today which has 67% IVs so I think I will evolve this one too. I still haven't evolved my first Shiny Magikarp but it has bad IVs so I think I will keep it as a Shiny Magikarp while I have already evolved and powered up my 2nd Shiny Magikarp which has 82% IVs and is now a 3144CP Shiny Gyarados. I also have 1 Shiny Lugia, Luvdisc, Snorunt, Dragonite, Dragonair and Flaafy, 2 Shiny Ampharos and 3 Shiny Bulbasaur and Mareep which I haven't already mentioned here before. Should Shiny baby Pokémon and their evolutions be in the poll?
