And i have a weird habit finding black shiniez: Rayquaza, Charizard, Gengar, Manectric, Haxorus.I have several shinies, most of them traded, almost all of them nothing more than trophies so far as I'm concerned. The only two that I ever actively used were Milotic, cus I think her shiny colors are just beautiful, and Rotom, cus it was actually of decent enough specs to EV train.
I have a weird habit of finding green shinies, since over half the ones I encountered myself were green: Oddish, Onix, Teddiursa, and an Espeon in a battle tower. My favorite story of finding a shiny though is that of my Togepi, which I hatched while breeding for a modest female with serene grace (very low chance of getting btw). I started releasing all the eggs that hatched with a bad nature and ALMOST released a shiny that had hatched. He was useless though, he's just there because I found it amusing I got a shiny before getting the Togepi I was actually after.
I have both a shiny vepiquen and Nidorina. I could trade you them if you want. Nidorina is hideous in my opinion, and vepiquen was only for teaching heal order through eggs, which doesn't work(i thought combee could learn it too.)Haha, yeah, too bad sometimes we have to learn from mistakes. :xd: Speaking about shiny pokemon, now that I will be resetting my HG again, I think I am going to look for a shiny starter in Chikorita. I'm sure I'll be getting it. (I will reset until I actually get it) Then, after I actually get to Kanto, I may go hunting for a shiny Nidorina. I would love to have a shiny Vespiquen, so maybe I'll breed her until I get one.
That sucks. The same thing happened to my friend. He was running around, found a shiny Geodude... And killed it. He told me that his game was "messed up" but when I told him what really happened and the chances of it happening he rage quit Pokemon Fire Red for a month.once i got a shiny Pokemon (can't remember what Pokemon it was)from link trade (or whatever you call it)on Pokemon Pearl. At first I didn't know what was going on, so i traded it back in and i was the BIGGEST mistake of my (Pokemon traner)life
