wow, haven't updated here in a while.
something that really irritates me is the fact that when a shiny faints, there's no way to get it back. I lost a pink murkrow 'cause it fainted from a rock smash.

I have my own problems with exploding Pokemon. My Murkrow would be perfectly capable of handling lower-level Geodude if they didn't keep blowing themselves up in her face. They even wait a turn so she can't avoid it by using Fly!

I don't understand why people care about shinies that much.
There, I said it.

Reply Korbeh, January 2nd, 2010, 10:47 pm

Because they look pretty?
Also, bragging rights.

Reply Vye Brante, January 3rd, 2010, 12:46 am

Hate it. Well, when they explode and stuff. I've actually only ever come across one shiny in my travels. (Legit shinies anyway.) Always sucks when you want them and they make themselves faint or whatever.

I like some shinies, but other ones are just ugly. It just depends on the Pokemon if I like the shiny version or not.

Anyway, nice comic!

Favourite shinies include Gardevoir and Lopunny so far, not really impressed with others...

Reply Djoing, January 3rd, 2010, 7:30 am

I think the attack you mean is self destruct.

i was trying to catch a shniy staravia and it used whirlwind i was like f***************k

Reply Korbeh, January 3rd, 2010, 12:53 pm

I just (mostly) remembered. I caught(or killed, not sure) a pink Rhyhorn in Gold and Silver, I found it in victory road.

Reply Koren, January 3rd, 2010, 1:49 pm

It's for this exact reason that I use cheat codes to get 99 Master Balls. I could teach you how, if you want.

Reply spudwalt (Guest), January 3rd, 2010, 2:32 pm

So far, I've seen a shiny Machop, Spinda, Gulpin, Magikarp, and Gyarados (though I'm not sure that last one counts, as you automatically see the red Gyarados in Gold/Silver).

My sister's seen shiny Wingull and Sandshrew. She also told me she found a purple Drowzee while putzing around on my Silver version, but I didn't believe her because that was before I knew about shinies.

I caught a shiny geodod once.
I also got a shiny bulbsore on wi-fi. I also have a friend who has a friend who has a gliched Firered so haft the pokemon are shiny. And the other haft are Charizards.

I caught a shiny Horsea on Bond Bridge in Fire Red. It evolved into a Seadra and is sitting in my Pokemon Ranch.

Before I knew about shines, I thought Bond Bridge had many shiny Pokemon XD And I kept fishing and fishing...

well after reading this i would feel sorry for whoever experienced this......

ps.i have 5 shiny pokemon(no hacking)

Reply Blizzard (Guest), January 4th, 2010, 5:13 am

i caught a shiny geodude in mt coronet i threw balls at it and woot

Reply Maowe, January 4th, 2010, 8:06 am

that happened to me with a harriyama...it used whirlwind when i found it....

Reply Kittysune, January 4th, 2010, 5:26 pm

It's weird. I think shiny voltorbs must be one of the most common shinies. (I have two, not hacked, I swear!)^^;
I also have a shiny peliper and a shiny marill.

Reply Silverlilly, January 4th, 2010, 6:14 pm

I have no stinkin shinys, but I've seen one. it was a bidoof. i just KO'd it.

Reply DragonhandX, January 4th, 2010, 9:18 pm

i once a hatched a shiny torchic in emerald.

Reply Ud the Imp (Guest), January 4th, 2010, 11:52 pm

A new reason to hate Self-Destruct and Explosion. DX

Reply Blizzard (Guest), January 5th, 2010, 11:39 am

hariyama learns whirlwind?!

Reply spudwalt (Guest), January 5th, 2010, 4:12 pm

@ Blizzard: Yep. Both Makuhita and Hariyama learn Whirlwind. I don't know why, but they do.

Reply EI (Guest), January 6th, 2010, 7:50 pm

Reminds me of how I once caught a Shiny Rhyhorn. Then I accidentally hit the off switch.
Lost the damn thing. ;-;

Reply Viku, January 7th, 2010, 5:53 am

This happened to me once with a shiny geodude D:

Reply spudwalt (Guest), January 8th, 2010, 3:35 pm

@ Insane Kirby: Well, shiny Pokemon do sorta sparkle when they enter battle...

Reply Silverlilly, January 9th, 2010, 7:16 am

I agree w/ spudwalt, and the fact that the term "shiny" is just a name someone gave them and it spread quickly. They really don't have one, (I think....)

Reply Christo556, January 10th, 2010, 7:29 am

priceless face on the last panel XD

Reply Crusty_Kris, January 10th, 2010, 9:42 pm

@Insane Kirby
they don't actually have to emit light, they just have to reflect it. there's probably some kind of special thing in their fur/skin that makes them appear to have a certain luster.

Reply BlueAnubis, January 11th, 2010, 2:05 pm

Eevee I am trying to hatch shiny Eevees. I got 1 out of about 400, working on number 2. if you want to hatch them, look up the Masuda Method.

Reply ?????? (Guest), January 11th, 2010, 7:25 pm

The first Shiny I ever caught was in Crystal version. It was a gray rattata.

Reply minion 626 (Guest), January 14th, 2010, 3:37 pm

This is why I have a pokemon with damp and I hunt in specific areas. I have odd luck.

Reply metablast, February 17th, 2010, 9:02 pm

Shiny Staravia I caught a shiny staravia and it was awsome but that's the only shiny I've ever got

Reply Arandomguy (Guest), May 8th, 2010, 7:15 am

what about the quick ball does anyone think about using a quick ball when the shiny does something dum.

Reply Fuzzy Fox (Guest), May 10th, 2010, 5:26 pm

Only proper shiny I found naturally was a shiny Budew in Diamond. I couldn't believe it, out of all the shiny pokémon it coould be it had to be a stinking Budew. But then I remembered it evolved into Roserade. It's now on my Soul Silver as said Roserade. <3

Reply JordanTH, August 8th, 2010, 1:26 pm

I got a shiny Beldum off of the GTS once... but due to some things like it's level and where it was caught, I'm pretty sure it was hacked (level 3 at route 202? whaaaaa). Stats seem normal though.

Reply Guest, November 3rd, 2010, 2:57 pm

i have had 6 shinys in order they are luxray,tentacool,electabuzz,gyrados,tangela and ursaring.the first two were from trades,electabuzz:when i was looking for a magneton i found him.gyrados:guess.tangela:i was in after school care and found him,then ran around screaming SSSSSHHHHIIIIIINNNNNNNYYYYY!ursaring:middle of the night+me screaming fish=angry mother.

Reply Jiremi (Guest), November 19th, 2010, 7:57 pm

I remember having a shiny Geodude at some point, and I have a shiny Azumarill in Emerald (he was green as a Marrill but now he's yellow).

Also, a blue Voltorb is better than a red for the same reason a great ball is better than a normal Poke ball.

Reply HeartlessMasterZach, March 11th, 2011, 10:23 pm

dont really care cause the ONLY shiny i have ever caught was a shiny geodude on pokemon crystal for the gbc

Reply kuryfurry (Guest), April 20th, 2011, 10:53 pm

i've found a shiny spearow in pokemon firered.But i wasen't able to catch it because i didn't have any pokeballs. so i was forced to kill it..

:(

Reply Pat-Man12, August 5th, 2011, 10:02 pm

You know in Pokemon R/S where you fight that that dog Pokemon? (I can't remember it's name). Once it was a shiny. -,-

@Pat-Man12 Poochyena.

Soft reset I'm STILL soft resetting for a shiny starter in SoulSilver. I've been doing it for an hour or so now. Then again, it takes a while to finnaly get a shiny.BTW,for those who don't know, soft resetting is when you save right before getting a pokemon and entering a certain button code that will bring you back to the screens you see when you start up the game.
Gameboy code :A+B+start+select
DS code: L+R+start+select
I'll post again once I have my SHINEH. :D
