[QUOTE=SuperDuperScoot;34692476]HO. LY. SHIT. I just encountered, and caught, MY VERY FIRST SHINY. Granted it was only a Tropius, not the most PLEASING colors, but hey. FIRST SHINY. Man my heart is still racing. It was a double battle, too, so I had to KO the Golduck first while making sure the auto-sandstorm caused by the Tyranitar didn't KO the Tropius. But I caught it with the first ball. Edit: I felt like taking a picture of my achievement. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22706967/ohmygoodddd.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] My first shiny I caught was a Graveler in Platinum. I had to hold back my squeal and I laughed wheezily at my luck. SImilarly, it was in a double battle. Now I have shiny Golem in my box, life is good.
I always have terrible shiny luck. First shiny was an oddish, then a zubat, then a hoppip in SS. My friend from uni has a shiny Gardevoir, Metagross, Scizor and a whole bunch of other shit. He has so many shinies that he put like 15 of them in pokemon ranch apparently.
Holy shit. I have played every single main pokemon game but I must say that the ending battle for Black and White is just so amazing. Actually getting your legendary to fight his was awesome and the animations were superb! I loved how they added the detail of letting your legendary into your party and making it the leader for the battle, truly epic!
Just bought Pokemon HeartGold! I know own a game for ever region!
The only shinies I remember catching are a Zubat and a Swinub in Gold and a Magcargo and a Ponyta in one of the 3rd gen games.
wow I'm having a good day today, found Platinum that I thought I had lost forever.. save is corrupted though now I can't decide if I should replay a game that I've already played 100 times over (g/s/c) or try and finally finish platinum
my first shiny was a sentret, i didn't know it was, so i started over because i was finicky about my start of pokemon silver for the GB also happy forever alone day [img]http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/041/2/3/happy_valentines_day__by_x_squishystar_x-d4pbihs.gif[/img]
And now that luvdisc is going to dry out and die. Good job. But I'll join you on the Forever alone day.

Shiny luck? Two shinies ran from me in the Safari Zone within five minutes of each other. I feel like some sort of astronomical chance was wasted on me.
So today I bought a booster pack (for the fun) and got this card; [IMG]http://www.onehitko.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/mewtwo-ex.jpg[/IMG] Is it rare?

That was my first reaction too. Really love the ''jumping out of the card'' effect.
[IMG]http://www.onehitko.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/zekrom-ex.jpg[/IMG] This is like the coolest card ever.
Could be me getting old or nostalgia but that's shit in my opinion.
[QUOTE=Dominicus;34698912]Could be me getting old or nostalgia but that's shit in my opinion.[/QUOTE] I think they look a lot like those "fake" cards with full art that had just the Pokemon and it's name.

Yes! I just got a female Japanese Zorua! Time to start Masudaing. Also, if anyone needs a low level good natured Oshawott, I am your man.

[QUOTE=Ruggington;34701460]It's the rarest card in the set and worth about $50-$60[/QUOTE] are these [img]http://pallettribune.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/AncientMew.jpg[/img] worth anything yet?
I still have this charmeleon card that was 99/97 (you know, those numbers in the bottom right?). Not sure what it means though, but it seems like it's not supposed to go that high.

[QUOTE=Jorori;34708632]I think it's the card number inside a series, for collectors[/QUOTE] That would make sense, but why make it number 99 out of a 97 card set?
[QUOTE=Bokito;34708636]That would make sense, but why make it number 99 out of a 97 card set?[/QUOTE] Your Charmeleon card is from this set? [url]http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/EX_Dragon_(TCG)[/url] By context I can assume the set has 97 cards and 3 additional ones (Charmeleon being one of those)
Yeah it's that one, thanks for clearing it up, I've been wondering what was up with that ever since I got that card.
I got my Verdant Frost theme deck today, but it doesn't seem to have a redeem code for TCG Online. Is there a way to redeem it? I also got a free booster pack with it and got the Cresselia half of the [url=http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Darkrai_%26_Cresselia_LEGEND_%28Triumphant_99%29]Darkrai & Cresselia LEGEND card duo[/url].
Just resently got back into my Pokemon Black game. I got my Mewtwo yesterday from the event. I kept reloading my save till the delivery guy gave me a Modest Mewtwo. Shame I didn't think to do this with that Shiny Suicune they gave you... Anyways I'm in the level range of 45 to 50 and heading for the railway bridge thing after finishing the last town gym(Ice)/dragonspire tower stuff. Dangit Larvesta why you make no sense. You start off a physical attacker than evolve into a Sp.attk thing which is what I wanted you to be originally. This makes it hard to level up its Sp.attk stat :v:

[QUOTE=zerotwelve;34708588]are these [img]http://pallettribune.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/AncientMew.jpg[/img] worth anything yet?[/QUOTE] I think it depends - back when they were new, I heard there was a misprint on some of them, making them rarer (Nintedo, instead of Nintendo), and therefore worth more. Dunno how that's held up, but I've got one (without the misprint). I kind of want to get rid of my old holographics, first editions, rare, and promotional cards, but... they're only worth $0.25 a card. :(
