I had a lot of shinies before on Diamond, 30 or so, I went on boards for trading and EV-Training Pokemons, so, I got some good deals. And I had a friend who cloned my shinies, so that I could trade it for new ones.
My first shiny was.. well, I saw a Starly in the beginning of the game, when you have no Poke Balls. The frustration..
Okay, my love for Pokemon has been resurrected because of this thread. Been looking up the pokemon that came out after Crystal and I'm interested. Sadly, I'll have to wait until my B-day for a DS due to no money. (that's the latest one right? I had a GB Color with Pikachu and Pichu on it, so I have no clue about handhelds after that)
