Small intro aside, thought it would be fun to flaunt my Shiny Pokes. These are all legit and totally random encounters... Except for the ones from White 2 since I got the Shiny Charm. Still technically random though, I suppose? Anyways, small bunch of shinies below!
(And apologies but my Platinum Gamecard is currently in a DS at a relative's house so I couldn't screencap them!)
The first one I ever got was completely by chance. I had restarted my copy of Emerald and while I was exploring around, I noticed this Whismur looked.. weird. I asked my best friend to look it up then had a heart attack and caught it. So, I named him 'Special'.
The Second was completely by chance. I prefer Soul Silver to Heart Gold so I keep that as my 'never delete' file. So Heart Gold gets a lot of reset abuse from me. I reset with the intention of replaying it for real and... Shiny Chikorita. I named him 'Saxon' don't know why though. Couldn't think of anything else but my english homework.
Fast forward to the summer of 2013. I was off work and my Dad convinced me to come out to the middle of the bush and camp. Yeah, well, I wasn't doing that without my Pokemon games. In the morning I would play it before breakfast and after 284 hours of playing Platinum (I really like that game) I hit my first shiny. A Wingull. Oh well, I didn't care. 'Beauty' joined the team!
After an indescribable amount of time in White 2, I finally got the Shiny Charm. Before that, I went to the Nature Reserve and got my favourite shiny of all, the black Haxorus. I was excited on naming it something else but when I saw it was a Female I called her 'Princess'. Still my favourite shiny.
Anyways, Shiny charm activated! After 20 hours...
Frosting, the Mareep.
Night-Eye the Watchog.
And Molecule the Koffing.
My ultimate dream would be to get a Shiny Garchomp. I know it's one of the cheap pokemon shinies since the colouring isn't even different but I love Garchomps so much that it outweighs that. Other than that, I don't have the patience to breed (ugh hatchinnnng) and I still cannot get down the PokeRadar. I'm still such a newbie at this game but I like what I randomly find! Hope to see more of everyone else's shinies! (And maybe get some more of my own at some point)
