My Shiny Drought


Wiggin

Recommended Posts

Iv'e played pokemon games for years but never once saw a shiny in the wild. I have never had a shiny in my posession. I have given up. Tell some of your stories about shinies, so that I can look on enviously.

 

Tell me about the ones you caught, the ones you made feint, the ones you hatched, and you traded.

Shiny Palkia. I was soft resetting trying to catch a Palkia that had high IVs and a Lonely nature. After many resets I saw the shiny one! I caught it and to my luck, it had lonely nature and 259 special attack at lv 70! My best catch ever.

 

Shiny Reshiram. I Had to get this one it is soo cool. I spent a few days and hundreds of resets. I got him with mild nature and 31 sp attack IVs after many many resets. 2nd best catch I ever had.

 

Oh and a tip for shinies, you can breed a Japanese pokemon with an English one and the odds of getting a shiny are way way higher, otherwise it's a 1 in over 8,000 chance to get one.

Wow! You sure sure got lucky on that Palkia.That thing with the Japanese pokemon is called the Masuda method, right? Maybe I'll try that.

You can't get a shiny RESHI without an ar.

(Yes you can, I caught it myself, and I don't hack. It's a 1 in over 8,000 chance. only certain pokemon like mew Jirachi, or Celebi, maybe a few others cannot be obtained normally. Me catching it is proof that it is possible.)

Shiny Reshiram can't be caught Shiny, Shiny Reshiram has shiny check on it I checked on Serebii.net.

Well then how do i explain that the one I caught was shiny I have never hacked and never will, maybe it was a game glitch?

Maybe it's because he's a Prime...

 

 

(lol)

 

Well if Shiny Reshi isnt possible, then the game would not be "PROGRAMMED" with the alternate colored Reshi, glitch or not, they created Black and White to have shiny Reshi in the game code for whatever reason. I should probably research why it is that way...

My first ever wild shiny was a Karrablast in White...I accidentally knocked it out OTL.

 

 

 

After that, and a restarted game later, I ran into a shiny swadloon and maybe ten mintues later a shiny boldore....I managed to catch both of them at the time...I've long since restarted TnT'''

 

 

 

In SS I ran into a shiny Yanma completely by accident. I just wanted to catch one to add to my pokedex since there was an outbreak of them. I swear though, the first one I ran into I knocked out, the second one wouldn't stay in the darn Pokeball, and the third one...which I only ran into because I was trying to get out of the grass...having given up trying to catch one...turned out to be shiny :'D. I was all like, "Oh...okay~ 8D" and I caught it with one pokeball...little buggers =3=....no pun intended lol/shot

 

 

 

A friend of mine traded me a shiny Porygon-Z...not sure if it's legit since she didn't say...but it's just so darn cute that I don't really care either way <333.

 

 

 

Black version I used the masuda method to get myself a shiny snivy o3o

 

 

 

I'd have a Snivy army if I could TwT....they're so cute....

pokéradar stays the easiest way,

 

everytime you see a the same pokemon one after the other the chance for a shiny is halved

 

it stays difficult but i caught a shiny ponyta on diamond without pokéradar i saw 20 ponytas in the high grasses above solaceon town (i was training starters and breeding) then a blue ponyta!

 

yesterday i found a pink pachirisu on rumble :)

8D Finally!

 

Last night just as I was falling asleep (yes I play my pokemon right to the moment of passing out =3='')...I was actually looking for a Jolly Scraggy and low and behold! A shiny scraggy appeared! *still flailing* and it's Joooolllly~ EV's are only so-so he has the Moxie ability which is nice for what I have in mind...I'll need get some of those stat lowering berries though to tweak him in the right direction before I start training him....should be a piece of cake!

 

 

 

He can go right next to my shiny Porygon-Z~ Though I try not to have more than one shiny on a team....but I really want both of them TnT''

 

 

 

Well, I'll go with it for now and if I can't stand it I'll have to start over again with one of them. Though I don't use Porygon-Z nearly as much as I use Scrafty so it may work out...

I have a shiny Espeon and a shiny Porygon-Z.

 

Back in the original Gold and Silver, you could trade in pokégold for tokens at the Game Corner without playing the games.. thankfully.

 

I used to breed eevees and every once in awhile, I'd go "buy" an eevee. After a long time, I got a shiny one. I kept him in my party and evolved him into an espeon.

 

I've still got him and I port him to the other games when I can.

 

Getting him took forever and I wasn't even aiming for a shiny, but I guess it goes to show just how many eevees I had. I still have that save file, it contains boxes of eevees.

 

The Porygon-Z I got from a friend when it was a Porygon, I have no idea if it's legit but it seems to be legit enough to port around and not murder the game.

I remember my first shiny. It was in leafgreen. I was in the Safari Zone for the first time and I found a shiny pinkish purple Nidorina. I tried to catch it but it ran away (stupid safari zone). After that I stayed away from things like the Safari zone and the Great Marsh because I didn't want that to happen again. But much later I found a shiny Exeggcute in Leafgreen (which was easy to catch), so I was somewhat satisfied.
