    We have threads for shinies you want and shinies you have, but what about the ones that got away?

    I once skipped over a shiny Slakoth, and more recently accidentally skipped a shiny Drilbur.

    And of course:

    That poor, poor missed flying bacon.

    Haven’t seen a single shiny yet, but just popping in to say this thread deserves a tiny gravestone or something— missing regular Pokémon you want sucks, but especially glittery ones D:

    I think I once missed a shiny Furfrou, but I didn't have Pokéballs and I didn't actually think anything of it. But of course, there's always next time.
    In truth, I really don't care for shinies. They just glitter, and there's really nothing special about them in my eyes. So, yeah... I missed one, but didn't mind.

    I haven't missed any on here thankfully. Although I almost skipped a shiny Piplup once.

    A shiny Grimer because my browser crashed.

    And of course, the shiny Spiritomb I missed because I ran out of balls.

    Skipped my first ever seen shiny - a Skorupi.
    I didn't even notice it was shiny... until it was too late.
    Spent a good five minutes just mentally screaming.

    I also failed with a Shiny Yveltal but that wasn't during a boost. I clicked a sidebar link during the boost this time and it was a shiny root seed so I'm not that upset tbh.

    As for myself, I remember blaming a Hoopa for eating up all my Pokeballs to the point that I missed a shiny Bunnelby during a shiny boost... :(

    The shiny Pokémon image didn’t load fast enough, and as soon I clicked on a link, a shiny Espurr showed up and I couldn’t stop the next page from loading ;-; It was okay because I found another shiny Espurr a bit later.
