    So. Today I needed to test out some features on the site to make sure they were working as intended. To do so, I needed to login into a test account of mine. I did so. I went straight to the Intro Lobby to create a new thread, when suddenly... this happened. The unthinkable.

    That's right. I found my first shiny on LV ever, Chikorita... on my test account. To make matters even worse, I had 0 PokéBalls. I don't know how this happened, but I have never found a shiny on my main account... ever. :(

    RIP Shiny Chikorita. We will miss ye.

    It's true!

    I updated my current profile status wall in his honour.

    I'm not sure whether to laugh or to cry, but we'll definitely remember this moment for posterity, whether he wants us to or not.

    And this is why I have at least 13 Pokeballs of varying types on me at ALL times. Still though, would you be considered lucky for encountering a shiny, or unlucky due to the circumstances it appeared in?

    There's only one proper answer to your question, and it's "Yes".

    Wow...this really, really hurts to look at. I've actually found a few Shinys, but all the same, I'd probably be pissed the rest of the day if this happened to me. I guess you can't catch 'em all....lol. You'll find another Shiny, don't worry :)
