My first ever shiny was an Exeggcute in the Safari Zone. It fled, and I was sad. Then a few minutes later I caught a shiny Paras, which was pretty boss.

Why does it hurt to say it? xD I've heard plenty of people talk about how rare a Golden (shiny) Magikarp is, and how a very few people have caught it... You should be proud of yourself, since you are one of those people, who have caught it? :o

Anyway, my first shiny encounter was a Geodude in Pokémon FireRed. Didn't catch it though, because I didn't like its color, I preferred its normal color more, honestly. d: Also, I had only two PokeBalls with me (IIRC), for that reason, I knew I couldn't catch it, even if I tried... So I just ran away from it. xD

A shiny Cubone I encountered during Pokemon leaf green. Those were sad times
as I didnt know what a shiny was and just thought it was a glitch
or error. Sad times indeed.

On the plus side I managed to capture a shiny rattata. Shame it was a rattata however.

The first time I encountered a shiny Sentret Pokemon in Crystal version, I ran away from it, thinking it was a glitch. XD

As I got older from 2001 of Crystal Version, I got into the next generation: Sapphire. I was up-to-date about shiny Pokemon from the interwebs thanks to high school. Soooo, I went to save Birch from that Poochyena. It was a shiny one... I'm like "Ffffffffff" XD I had to kill it to progress the game. D: I was very sad. Thankfully I encountered another shiny Poochyena in Petalburg Woods, so I was happy to have caught it. :3

Later on in Crystal Version, (me being older), I ran into a shiny Pikachu on Route 2. I had 2 Great Balls, 1 Ultra, 1 Pokeball, and I believe 4 Moon Balls. First Ultra didn't work, and I'm "crap". I think I threw every ball, and the second Great caught it at full health. XD I couldn't hurt it because it was level 7 and my Pokemon were level 68+ at the time.

Yeah... those days were adventurous.

I have this curse to find a shiny every now and then. >.> Especially at the beginning of the games where you don't have Pokeballs yet.

Default Re: KOed a shiny :(

Of all my years playing Pokemon Ive never encountered a single shiny Not wild nor legendary Ive soft reset, Poke Radar, kept searching and i have yet to find a shiny pokemon im really mad because ive been playing pokemon since way back when red and blue were still quite popular (a.k.a The golden ages of pokemon) So ive been playing for a while as you can see but just have the worst of luck with shinies. Maybe ill come across One someday.

Dont worry you will find one eventually, i was like that until i found a Shiny Zubat in Saphire in the Origin Cave and then another one in Emerald (for some reason i always find a Shiny Zubat in that cave)

My first Shiny encounter was when several years ago, I ran into a Shiny Wurmple on my Sapphire. I was so excited to see that sparkle and then I realized...I didn't have any PokeBalls yet. D=

I KO'd my first shiny, too. It was a Voltorb, and I also thought it was a glitch.

I'm pretty sure you'll find other shinies. I certainly did.

I believe I have made a shiny faint before.

A Zubat, I believe?

Thankfully I've never KOed or escaped from a Shiny. Well, I've only found two of them: a Drowzee and a Donphan in my Silver. Drowzee in 2008 and Donphan quite recently in December. Yes, I still play GSC through my Transfer Pak on Stadium 2's GB Tower.

My first encounter with a shiny was a Graveler. It used Selfestruct.
It was a sad day.

Years ago, I ended up finding a shiny Rayquaza on my Sapphire. Was so cash. Then after I got Emerald, I transferred it, along with several rare Pokemon, to that game. Then my Emerald version decided that the save file was corrupt.

I took a hammer to the cartridge.

Haven't seen a wild shiny since. :r

eVERY SHINY i HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED always got away. My first shiny ever was a shiny cyndaquil in Gold. I never knew it was shiny. Thats the only one I ever had that never got away. In emerald, I found a shiny sableye in granite cave. I had no poke balls. Next in Fire red i found a shiny Pikachu in viridian forest. Critical hit and Fainted. The next shiny I found was a shiny glameow in Pearl. I also hit a critical hit. The next shiny was in HG. I never found one it platinum. In heart gold, I found a shiny hoothoot before you even GOT pokeballs! The next shiny was a shiny stantler in the safari zone. I was TERRIFIED that it would run away. I kept throwing bait and mud. I got 3 wiggles and i popped out and ran. Thats the last one I've seen. :((( I have bad luck
