    I spent hours looking for a feebas in pokemon ruby. Doing every single tile, it felt like. I finally find my feebas tile, with a male feebas, I catch it, but want to try again for a female feebas. I pull up another male feebas, but it's shiny. I've had this shiny milotic for some time now.
    I felt pretty lucky that day, so I bought a lotto ticket too, didn't win that though.

    Ha I can beat that, I got 3 shinies in the same hour. Rhyhorn (Safari Zone) spearow (Right outside the Safari Zone in that patch of grass below the gate of the Bike Path) and slugma. Sucks that I named Rhyhorn and Slugma Shinyon1 and Shinytwo2 and accidently sent them over to Pearl without fixing their names. *Slams head on keyboard*

    So I was playing Pokemon Leaf Green and going through the Viridian Forest, doing a female-only playthrough. I wanted a Pikachu.

    After some wandering around, a Pikachu appeared. It was female. If it wasn't female, I would have KO'd it.

    Then I don't really care about catching it, so I hit it with a strong move (can't remember what). It survived.

    So, I threw a ball. If it escaped, I would have KO'd it since that was how I was feeling. I caught it.

    So I raised it some. I then noticed a while later that it was shiny. So, I had a shiny female Pikachu caught in the Viridian Forest.

    On another note, I was using Numel in Pokemon Emerald earlier, in the desert against Sandshrew and Sandslash. They used Sand Attack or had some ability, I don't know. I was using Magnitude. What was the coincidence?

    If I got a low number, oh sure, it would hit. But if I got a number of 7 or higher? Oh, it wouldn't hit, that would be too nice. It missed.

    Every.

    Single.

    Time.

    Needless to say, I was very, very annoyed. One time I got lucky and a Magnitude 10 hit a Sandslash. It barely survived, and I had probability fun again. I was level 31 (it was an accident with the day care, and I'm picky, so all my Pokemon were that high), it was like level 22. GRRRRRRR, I think the game doesn't like me.

    That kind of thing happens to me all the time, both in and out of Pokémon. I think it happened once when I was trying to find a Gengar in my Diamond game with the Dongle method.

    Shiny Bashamo Isn't it cute ^^

    You do know it is impossible without a cheatdevice to catch a wild cyndaquil right?

    anyway, I was playing a Ash playthrough in Crystal, so I only used pokémon that Ash had in his team. I was looking for a Noctowl when a Shiny Noctowl showed up =D So I caught it and used it in my team :3

    Wow. This reminds me of my hunt for the rare Heracross in Platinum. I spent many days checking on Honey Trees to find Heracross but the same not-Heracross Pokemons kept showing up instead, so I decided to migrate the Heracross I caught in FR to Platinum. I still haven't encounter any Heracross from Honey Trees in Platinum, though...but I did find a Heracross in my Diamond a very long time ago but I wasn't planning to use a Heracross back then, so I just kept it in the PC Box.

    I really wanted a shiny on Sapphire, because it looks like a lot of people are lucky in finding them. After spending some days on going through tall grass, fishing etc, nothing happened.

    But the first tile I fished in was a Feebas tile.

    ArcanineOod Peace, perfect peace

    So, one day I was on the internet randomly looking at Shiny Pokemon sprites. I caught sight of Shiny Roserade and fell in love with it.

    A few months later, I was heading to the dude next to Pal Park's house in Platinum so I could get a Focus Band or something like that, and POOF! a Shiny Roselia appears! My favourite Shiny!
    I managed to catch it, thankfully, and now it sits in my PC. I'll use it someday, I'm sure. ^_^

    I was thinking, "I'll never get a shiny..."
    I was wrong. Got a shiny Remoraid in Diamond.

    Kinda one...
    When I went to Route 229, I wondered why the Ace Trainer Female with Kirlia hadn't evolved it. Same with the guy next to her and Dusclops. You get it. Jirachi parody? And proably nice sort-out! LOL!
