So here i am on iron mountain, EV training for defense against gravelers. When all of a sudden, i see something weird.

Yes, a shiny graveler appeared.

It was so beautiful, it was a dark brown with a small hint of gold. It looked like a heavenly meatball, with arms and legs.

The pokemon i was ev training (scizor) was 20 levels higher than this graveler, and it had PP left for iron head..only.

I didn't want to kill off this beautiful thing, so i refrained from using the move. I remembered that i had luck with repeat balls. I caught my first shiny in a repeat ball (banette)

So, i throw it and hope for luck.

This is the sequense of events that followed:

:Wild Graveller apeared!
(shing shing shing [shiny noise])
:Axl used one repeat ball!
:Oh noes! The pokemon broke free!
:Wild Graveller used Selfdestruct!

I'm still not completely over it, so no making fun. :susp:

There really isn't anything you CAN do to prevent it from using Selfdestruct.

Also

How does the ability damp work? Does it prevent the other pokemon from using the selfdestruct move completely?? Because next time i go shiny hunting...a pokemon with that ability will be at the top of my party.

Oh...there is damp. XD

Yeah, that's basically the gyst of how it works. IIRC Poliwag, Psyduck and the Wooper lines all have that ability.

No, it prevents other pokemon. That'd be silly sense I don't remember any of those pokemon being able to Selfdestruct/Explosion.

This is why you should have been EV training a Golduck instead.

That sucks. I've heard many stories about people finding shiny Gravelers and then selfdestructing. Hopefully you'll find a better shiny pokemon next time. :happy:

That is why you should always have a masterball or 2 with you.

This is the reason why I haven't used my Master Ball on any of the legendaries.

Sorry for your loss and we all lose shinies in some way or another (me thinks of Shiny Piplup) and I hope you have better luck next time.

Simple.
Attach item to Pokemon, make sure other person has the item you want attached to their Poke, and then trade. XP
Easy to figure out, no? XD

hey, it doesent help if you find a shiny marril in the safiri zone (like me) and all you have are pokeball, and rocks(which will make em run away) i was so NERVOUS when i found that marril in the safiri zone, but i caught it. (yea me) sorry for you thou, i wish you had my luck ;) (but not if it means taking away mine)

i have one...but i'm saving it for something extreme. Like, if i find a two headed mewtwo with fricken lazer beams attatched to it's fricken head, there is a 50% chance that i will consider using it.

Lie Flan siad, I doubt that'll happen.

I would have used it on the Graveller. What else is there after you've caught all the legends?

This forum is not for moping about missing Shinies. There is a topic for Shiny Discussion in the General Board.
