    When I found my first shiny, it was my very first shiny and I found it in this game, it was a Vulpix. When I saw that it was shiny, I was so damn shocked! I was like: CATCH IT! CATCH IT! I threw my Ghastly and used nightshade/Lick to weaken the Vulpix, Vulpix had like 25% hp left and I started throwing balls. The first 3 missed and then Vulpix used Roar and I skipped a beat.... LUCKILY. Ghastly is IMMUNE to Roar! And I was able to catch it with the next ball! :D

    It could be worse. ;)
    I haven't lost any shinies myself, luckily.
    My first was a shiny tentacool in pokemon crystal. My second shiny was in pokemon diamond. I wanted to try to use the pokeradar to chain roselias, hoping to find one that was shiny. The very first time I started the radar, I saw some sparkling grass. I walked into the patch of sparkling grass and found... a shiny female smeargle. x) I was extatic that I found a shiny pokemon on my very first try. :)

    The chances of finding a shiny are slightly bigger in this game, orso I've heard.

    haha whenever you feel like that just look at my signiture hahaha. And ive always collected shinies so to me they are quite the big deal. i used to spend forever soft resetting my games for shinies especially rayquaza. hes probably my favorite shiny pokemon in the game. Well i never really got a shiny legendary without and AR haha.
