the shiny zebstrika is a BAMF oh my god that's so awesome i want one
i'm seriously considering just breeding shinies after i complete this game for the second time to make up for the fact that i've never caught a shiny ever (excep that one red gyarados that turns up in Heart Gold)
Yeah, in my more than 10 years of playing Pokemon games, I'd only ever encountered two shinies (not counting the red Gyarados, cause everyone who plays Gold/Silver/Crystal/HeartGold/SoulSilver encounters it) and didn't catch either: a shiny Sandshrew in Gold and a shiny Medicham in Diamond or Platinum.
And then I bought White Version.
I found three (3!) shiny Pokemon in the same game. Blitzle, Darumaka, and Crustle. I caught all three. I have no idea how I managed that. All I remember is that I came across the shiny Blitzle while training, and I was all "OMGWANT!" Now it's a permanent part of my team.
