Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!
Well I've played pokemon games since the original Red and Blue games, Not once have I ever come across a shiny until this week and then suddenly I find two in a matter of days.
Anyway one else caught any legitimate shinies?
Yes. I've caught a shiny Slowpoke, shiny Pidgey (which I raised into a Pidgeot) shiny Zubat (which I raised into a Crobat) And a shiny Weedle on my last Crystal file. I'm sure there might be some others I'm missing. I remember finding a shiny Pineco but it self destructed on me before I could catch it
I've only ever found shiny Pokemon in the gen 2 games, probably because those are the games I've played extensively and have had countless files on them over the years. When you play enough, you're bound to find a shiny eventually.
I've also got a few shinies through the shiny Ditto breeding trick on the gen 2 games, but those weren't caught obviously.
