• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.
  • Hi all. We had a couple of reports of people's signatures getting edited etc. in a bad way. You can rest assured this wasn't done by staff and nobody has compromised any of our databases.

    However, remember to keep your passwords secure. If you use similar passwords to elsewhere which has been accessed, people and even bots may be able to access your account.

My first shiny was a zubat, which i traded for a shiny eevee


Mine is a Gyarados in my Gold version.


Gyarados in Silver, which should be all of your first shinys if you owned gold/silver. Still have neglected to capture a 3rd/4th Gen shiny but really what does it really matter if the COLOR is different. I personally don't give a crap but that's just me.


ponyta in fire red, i think. i mgiht have gotten one back r/b/y but i dont remember. did they even have shinies then? anyway, i dont have it i have started my game over three times since then

Other than the Red Gyarados in Gold Version, my first shiny was a shiny Ponyta (it was brown!). I also had a shiny Nidorino or Nidorina (I don't remember) in Gold.

The only other shiny I ever encountered was a Starly in Pearl (which I stupidly traded away).

Apart from the red Gyarados my first shiny was a Roselia in ruby.


i cannot believe
The 1st shiny that I ever caught? Ironically, the shiny Gyarados in my Gold which I caught after my 6th badge. xD (above Mahogany Town)

But honestly speaking, the 1st shiny that I ever caught was a Zubat in Gold too. Unfortunately, that game was a fake, and I accidentally deleted the file. ;~;


Champ In The Making
