well when i was playing my old silver version on my gbc i found a shiny zubat in the ilex forest. now i love zubats and i just learned recently at that point what shiny pokemon even were so i had two pokeballs to do this capture. i took his health down little past half and didnt want to damage it any more. so i used the first ball....fail. than i used the second one and i failed again... i will never forget about that zubat that got away haha. anyone else who found a shiny pokemon but it got away?
