    I was just reminded of this. The first shiny pokemon I ever encountered was Rhydon in Platinum. I recognized Immediately what it was and went to try and weaken it to catch. But I did not know my type resistances as well as I do now. I ice beamed it with Glaceon. and THAT is why I will never forget that rock does not resist ice.

    My first shiny was a rattata. Common, but I consider it fortuitous anyway because rattata is one of my top two pokemon and I've had one in my team and taken it to the League for every gen.

    Second was a boldore, which I caught on my DS when waiting for a bus. It was a miserable day and I was totally shocked haha

    My first shiny was a zubat in silver. I never had a link cable or anything I could have used to transfer him to the next gen. Poor boy is probably still sitting alone in a box somewhere.

  5. My first was a Weedle in either Gold or Crystal. Basically, same hat same problem. But now I have new shiny friends, like my shiny Snorut and Plum the Audino.

    luckily for you, you cant transfer from gen 2 to gen 3 iirc

    my first shiny was a graveler in silver. and then a long dearth until i caught 3 during a gen 4 dex completion project.

    Pokego is the first time I've seen any shinies, because it has... I think a 1/50 rate for select mons for select periods when their appearance rate is high? So it's not too hard to find 2 or 3 in a couple of hours on Community Days, when some Pokemon or other is everywhere.

    There was a girl who I would occasionally play with during community days during undergrad who I swear to god. Caught EIGHT shiny pokemon one community day. Also, it was not out of character for the rest of the group to catch 3-5 a piece.

    I found a 69 CP Magikarp with all IVs 0. I have officially won Pokemon Go, and possibly the entire Pokemon franchise.

    Here. I'm fascinated by how different it is and simultaneously left too stunned by just how weird it is to respond.

    I don't understand why this is a thing that is... happening, at all, but I love and trust Detective Pikachu :D

    Now that I have more time to come back to this, I'm not quite onboard with all the choices but having a live action of the pokemon world that seems to be like... action adventure with and shit with arcs about how people feel about pokemon is just too fascinating. Detective Pikachu was always a little left field, in that he talked, but being integrated into a live action world is even more fascinating? Seems to be a pretty multicultural setting, I'd almost say North American-ish? If not strictly North American in setting, it's definitely more North American inspired than other Pokemon spins and to see Pokemon integrated with that is entirely new...

    (In the trailer, seems that the place is 'reality adjacent' because of the fake names rather than fully integrated into our real world which is typical of Pokemon but. Interesting. Part of the Pokemon universe now I guess, haha)

    Edit: Also I hadn't looked at the details of Detective Pikachu too much before and I haven't actually played it, but it seems entirely based around the world of that game. So, interesting.
