So, I'm sure a lot of you have had a shiny Pokemon encounter and lost your **** am i right? Lets all tell the best shiny story we have ok? I'll go first My first and only shiny Pokemon encounter was in Pokemon Platinum, I started playing my brand new game and was excited to get started so I got through all that boring explanations from Prof. Rowan named my player and rival and went and chose my starter Pokemon (I took Piplup) and had my first wild encounter and guess what? That ******* Starly that appears was ******* shiny Absolutely no way to catch it and i just sit there contemplating why the Pokemon gods hated me for like 3 hours and debated killing it or just staring at it. eventually i just accepted my fate and killed the damn thing.
