I just wanna know all I have is red gyrados and shiny raiku but one time I saw a gold geodude that used self-destruct.

It's a 1/8192 chance. The red Gyrados is the only guaranteed shiny. It sucks that you killed off that Geodude, being a shiny pokemon, it's really rare. :(

I didn't it did it itself.
Well next time you see something shiny, throw a Quick Ball first! Than let it blow up if it wishes...
Well I no longer care for that geodude because I just got a shiny staravia.
I have a gold hoothoot.Tring to evovle into a noctowl, like the one Ash has. Lucky me!
