Same thing happened to me. :p

Seems to me like the most common shiny found in Gen III is Golbat. O-o My friend found a shiny Swinub randomly in SS.

Well, it's not really common. I have two shiny pokemon, namely Spinda and Sandshrew. I'm actually have seen 3 shinies, Spinda, Sandshrew, and Milotic. The Milotic was on the Battle Pike. :sad:

Is that even possible? O_o If so...That sucks.
And Meteor falls is the hotspot for shiny Golbats from what i've seen so far. I've caught 3 shiny Golbats there...I would be proud if it wasn't green...Ugh.

Yeah, its possible. I've only ever seen 3 shinies; A Rayquaza whom I caught but the save file deleted itself somehow, an Exeggcute in the safari zone who fled immediately, and, once, Dahlia's Medicham in the Gen 4 Battle Frontier.

Ouch, that sucks. And i thought it MIGHT be possible but trainers' (in game) can't have shiny Pokemon...can they? I'm almost positive only 'wild' can be...

Yeah, they can't. But in the Battle Pike, there is a room that is full of wild pokemon, namely Dusclops, Seviper, and Milotic. But you can't catch them.
I've never seen a shiny Zubat/Golbat before, i wonder when will i get one.

You're wrong, there are trainers with shiny Pokemon, I've fought some in Battle Tower (shiny Espeon is the only one I can remember atm, I know I've seen more though.)

Congratulations on your shiny! I hate to say this, but shiny Zubat/Golbat/Crobat isn't so special in generation 3; I know several people, including myself that have found a shiny Zubat or Golbat in Meteor Falls. Back in 2003 I found my first shiny, Zubat in Ruby.

Adding onto that, I recently found a shiny Gulpin in Emerald Version and caught her in a regular Pokeball (no masterballs on hand, I only had 2 badges!) When FireRed first came out, I found a shiny Snorlax east of Vermilion City. I remember waking him up, looking away from the screen, looking back, and thinking "isn't Snorlax supposed to be green? why is this one aqua blue?" After catching him, I realized he was shiny. :)

Generation 3 was a very good generation for shiny Pokemon, I found a total of 3 all in different games, all before collecting all of the badges and finishing the game.

I've seen the Espeon as well. I think it and a Seaking are both programmed in as shiny, though. But I think it's possible for other trainers to have shinies, right? i think i saw a shiny when i was ten, but i probably thought my game messed up and knocked it out *shrug*. my only (non-chained, legit) shiny is a Floatzel lol.

I remember that Espeon, but not a Seaking. I think Gen 4 battle frontier trainers can have shinies at the same probability as wild pokemon

The Zubat family seems to be quite lucky with this.

My first and one of two legitimately encountered Shinies was a Zubat in HG.

I guess I could say that I'm quite unlucky because I never ever have seen a shiny pokemon in my games before (besides the shiny Gyarados in Gold/Sliver/Crystal that doesn't count because it was waiting for me) so I'm saying that I probably will never see a shiny pokemon in my life. T_T

Bumping a 2-month unactive thread isn't always very good. :| Anyway, if I haven't mentioned it, I've found shiny Lunatone and a Shiny Tentacool. No pokeballs for Tentacool. :P

I've found a shiny Hariyama in Victory Road when my brother was playing around with the game. Luckily he told me what he saw and i manage to capture it. The next shiny i own is a shiny Numel which i evolved it into a shiny camelrupt. It is black in colour so it reminds me as if it is some sort of dark camelrupt. But unfortunately, my Emerald's save file got deleted 2 years ago and I never got the two of them ever again. =(
