I was doing my monotype challenge yesterday and while I was training my treecko a shiny poocheena(did I spell it right) popped up!Too bad it's quiet natured.:(


Red is pure awesome
i was playing training my shroomish on route 116 when a shiny tailow came up and it was awesome.But unfortunetly for me half an hour later i accidently bumped my cartrige (did i spell that correctly?) the tinyest little bit and the whole game froze and i didnt save it.

This shiny Treecko appeared last night while I was talking to a friend on msn. It breaks my 3rd gen shiny drought, my last shiny was Bulbasaur back in August. Shiny Treecko has a Mild nature, and it may have flawless Special Attack. I am planning on making it a Special Sweeper when I get it EV trained.

I caught a shiny nidorinan in leafgreen safari zone. It was the most stressful moment in my life because safari pokemon flee easy.

Well, I found my Sapphire version and started playing it to soft reset for a shiny Mudkip. About and hour later it shone while I was watching TV!!! it didn't take me very long! I'm stoked! It's timid nature with these IV's - HP: 9 Atk: 9 Def: 25 Sp. Atk: 25 Sp. Def: 9 Spd: 9. Pretty good def and sp attack I think, eh?

I finally got a shiny Charmander after a long hunt. It was officially my first shiny, and I was elated as the Charmander line is my favorite line of pokemon. Unfortunately it was hasty nature. I was hoping for a nature that benefied special attack. Oh well.

I caught a shiny Venonat (First shiny I had ever caught) on my way to Fuchsia City. I was so scared when I got in battle with it because I only had 2 Pokeballs and a Masterball at the time (I wasn't about to use a Masterball on it.), but luckily I caught it. In my Fire red version (Before I lost it. >.<) somebody in the trainer tower had a shiny pokemon. I was so mad when I saw it...
