Man, shiny Pokémon. I have a shiny Kricketune in my version of Pearl, nicknamed Seven... because it was the first shiny I had seen in seven fucking years. The last shiny was a Poochyena in Ruby... before you receive the Poké Balls. What are the chances of a shiny? 1/8192 or something? I must have participated in at least three times that many wild battles since Gen II, and those are still the only random shiny Pokémon I've ever encounted.
