Re: Shiny Bragging Thread? Shiny Bragging Thread.

I have many shinies, although most of them are not legit :p

But the only shiny i've caught legitimately is a Hoothoot -.- although it has sentimental value to me for private reasons

I randomly decided to train my Pokemon a bit in Victory Road before taking on the Elite Four in HeartGold and found a shiny Golbat. It's only my second shiny ever that I've caught.

One day when I was about to go to the Pokemon center in my SoulSilver gamr from Johto route 38 then go to bed I encountered a Shiny Miltank! The first Miltank I saw in the wild on that game. I transferred it to my White game.

I encountered a Shiny Amoongus from one of the fake items on Unova Route 10.

I've also got a Shiny Zapdos and Japanese Shiny Swampert from a giveaway on the Forums as well.

Once I was training randomly in Valley Wind Works in Pokémon Pearl and I came across a shiny Buizel, it fainted.

P.S. Can you guys give me some advice for Pokémon Black? I restarted my game and kept resetting (I can't soft reset because my R button is broken), I was determined to get a shiny Oshawott, and after 3 resets I got a female Oshawott instead. I saved the game. Should I delete it and continue my quest for a shiny or just be happy with a female Oshawott?

I encountered a Shiny Patrat a few weeks ago on Black version. I was traveling to Nuvema Town when I encountered it on Route 1. I decided to capture it; not for my collection (since I don't particularly like Shiny Patrats), but for trading purposes. I tossed a couple of Nest Balls at it, and I had it sent to my PC for storage after that. This marks the fourth random encounter Shiny I've found while playing the Generation 5 games, and the third one that I've found on Black version. I'm very pleased.

About 30 minutes ago, I got a shiny Joltik. It didn't faint, I captured it, and now it's on my team for Black 2. I think I can objectively say that I now have the best shiny.

A little more than an hour ago, I caught my first Generation V shiny and it just happened to be on Black 2. I was working my way through my first trek through Victory Road when an orange Throh appeared. At first, I couldn't tell if it was my eyesight (I really haven't put the game down since I got it on Thursday) that was making me see things or not. Then the little sparkle came and I realized what I was looking at. I was on my way to get my team healed so I had a couple of them fainted and I ended up wasting a few Revives reviving a bunch of them just so I could stay in the battle and I tried my hardest to not accidentally K.O. it. After quite a few wasted Ultra Balls, I managed to catch it in my 2nd or 3rd Great Ball. It will now be sitting in a box on my PC, unused, collecting dust but I am just so happy that I got my first Gen V shiny!

So on my first day of playing Black 2, I found a shiny Sunkern. I was sitting on the floor playing my 3DS (don't ask why) and I saw the last bit of a sparkle out of the corner of my eye. I looked at this Sunkern thinking "Is it a shiny?" - it didn't look different. I caught it anyway and checked the status screen - yup, shiny.

Here's my current list:

Random Encounter:
Machamp (Caught as a Machop in Japanese Pearl)
Ariados (Caught as a Spinarak in HeartGold)
Sunkern (Caught in Black 2).

Hatched:
Infernape (Hatched as a Chimchar in Diamond)

Event:
Milotic (VGC09)
Eevee x2 (VGC10)
Larvitar (VGC12)
Tyranitar (Evolved from VGC12 Larvitar)
Raikou x5
Entei x5
Suicune x5
Pichu x3
Golurk
Rayquaza

Others:
Gyarados x3 (HGSS)
