I seem to be the exception to that.
True, but R/B/Y/G/S/C and the red Gyarados were cut off from R/S and all subsequent games. It held value as a real shiny pokÃ©mon up until HG/SS when it was re-released as a forced encounter. To me, Johto red Gyaradoses hold as much value as version-exclusive legendaries such as Groudon, Ho-Oh, Dialga, etc.
Oh, umm.... bye.
