    Random Shiny Encounters

    About how many shinies have you found without looking for them? Do you remember what they are?

    *In July 2012, I wanted to start a new game in Pokemon Pearl, but I wanted to EV train some Pokemon before cancelling the old save file. Because I was about to cancel that save file anyway, I used the Action Replay to make some Pokemon appear in the tall grass of Route 201, in order to make EV training easier. Vibrava gives 1 Attack EV and 1 Speed EV when defeated, so it was perfect for EV training my Luxio (who is a Luxray now, of course). On July 6, 2012, I was EV training my Luxio using hacked Vibravas on Route 201 when a shiny Vibrava appeared. I was quite upset because the Vibrava was hacked, but the shininess of the Vibrava was legit (I hadn't used the "make all wild Pokemon shiny" Action Replay cheat code). I caught that controversial Pokemon anyway.

    **I caught these Pokemon in the Friend Safari : as a result, they are not full-odds.

    ***This Pokemon comes from a save file I found on the Internet. There is the Shiny Charm on that save file : as a result, my shiny Girafarig is not full-odds.

    ****This Pokemon was caught on a ROM. After Pokemon Crystal came out on the Virtual Console, my shiny Spinarak was transferred to generation 7 by the awesome @Kaoru. :)

    On my way to my next adventure!
    Only two I have ever found were a Shiny Spinda on Sapphire (emulated, so I took video evidence as proof) and a shiny Onix on LG (also emulated--I filmed that catch)
    Everyone has a dream that fills their heart. A journey they must take. A destiny to fulfill. As close as your imagination exists a magical place, where wondrous creatures with incredible powers help make dreams come true. It's the world of Pokemon!!"

    I've been playing the games ever since Ruby and Saphire came out, but despite that I've only ever seen one shiny Pokemon. It was in Pokemon Platinum, where I saw a shiny magnemite

    ...that was owned by a random frontier trainer.

    I have never found a natural random shiny in the history of ever, even though I've been playing for years and thousands of hours. However, I have a friend whose only shiny she's ever encountered was a Cubchoo, which basically looks the same as the regular one. Quality find, haha.

    I doubt I will remember all of them, however I will try and take a look at the details of the ones still in my collection. Some I know that I traded away, and may have forgotten.

    These were all found either without trying to hunt this particular shiny, or not even hunting a shine in the first place and just playing the game. I am not concerned with odds but some were if I recall found while having a shiny charm and higher-odd safaris, if that matters to you. (I like muh dex completion)

    -Poliwag in original Gold version (my very first shiny encounter ever, lost forever now of course)
    -Tangrowth in the post-postgame of Black 2. It's in a masterball cause literally why not at that point
    -Abra in Y friend safari (so thankful for Quickballs you have no idea)
    -Swablu in Black 2
    -Sawk in Y safari
    -Throh in Y safari
    -Octillery in Y
    -Nincada in Y (two shinies for price of one on evoluton too)
    -Barbaracle in Y
    -Most recently Inkay (now Malamar) in Ultra Moon.
