That feeling when you see your first shiny pokemon

    zerothethird Wobbuchu is awesome.

    Everything I have to say is in my sig. I'm too speechless. I wasn't expecting this. On that normal day, I was just doing my routine of breeding for an Adamant Torchic. Getting a shiny Torchic, however, was the last thing I expected to happen. It's my first. I've been playing since RSE, and this REALLY is my first. When I saw the yellow body, and orange "hands", I screamed the "sh" word so loud, my friend asked me what's wrong, and...well I told him the rest.

    So...what did you feel when you saw your first shiny?

    Well. Unless it's that stupid red Gyrados, it's awesome to see your first Shiny. xD

    I still haven't done it! Been breeding charmanders via MM for a while but still no luck - I bet it's really exciting tho. Can I ask, is it immediately obvious that it's shiny when it hatches? Or only on it's status screen?

    It will show the shiny coloring of the Pokemon when it hatches. So yeah...as I was saying, when I saw the yellow body and orange hands, I immediately knew it. It's my first shiny! Anyways, good luck, Vivaea! Just remember: it can happen when you least expect it. At least that's what happened to me. Oh and no bragging intended, but MM wasn't used. I just did the classic pokemon+ditto=baby thing.

    @Silver: Oh yeah. I forgot that. I never used it though on my SS. It felt overrated, I guess?
  5. Shiny runner Articuno in Platinum. I almost dropped my DS in shock, then I let out a **** yeah throughout the empty house. Felt good.

    Um... I think my first shiny was a Sandshrew... I was playing on a non-lit GBA in poor lighting. 'Gee, sandshrew sure looks green in this lighting...'

    I was much more excited when I found my second shiny though.

    Did you catch the Sandshrew, though? :D

    No, I didn't realize it was special until the next one showed up, apparently it wasn't the lighting... >.<

    My first shiny was a Sewaddle. I just saw it and thought, oh my god, I have to get this. So then I caught it, named it Glowworm and literally shrieked with happiness.

    My first shiny was a Unown (M). Then followed by a shiny Smoochum hatched from the Odd Egg. And I was really happy of course.
    And then I never found any other shiny in all the Pokemon games I've played after that.

    My first shiny was a shiny Hoot-Hoot on SS. I was lucky too because it was the first encounter after I got the Pokeballs from Lyra.

    Well, the first shiny I have ever seen was something on Ruby but I thought it was a glitch D: So sad... it just got to run away.

    Since it was in the 3rd gen wherein I saw my first shiny, I was really surprised when I saw it and I was like something is not right about this. I actually thought it was a glitch but wow, was I wrong XD.

    10 year old me: "Ooh, I didn't know Ponyta could be blue. Oh well, I'll catch one some other time" and I continued on my way to Veilstone City. Only shiny I've ever seen.

    I thought it was a bug.. But I still caught that yellow-ish Ledyba on Silver

    Yeah, I did wonder if it was a glitch too.

    Oh, and I keep thinking Deerling is shiny when the season changes.

    Waited 10yrs to get a shiny Pokemon. Finally achieved my dream one day, only to find it was an Unown. The most unusable Pokemon in all of Pokemon. In the meme bad luck Brian got a shiny Bidoof, but at least he could've evolved it into the mighty shiny HM slave that is Bibarel......

    I saw my first shiny when I was little and playing LeafGreen. It was a shiny Bellsprout and I screamed internally because I knew what a shiny was at the time. I was so excited to show it off to my friends. Then the excitement quickly turned to despair when I went into my bag and found out I didn't have a single Pokeball....
