As for Shinies, I've only ever encountered 2.
Both in my Ruby emulator, an Illumise, and a Marill, both where weak leveled, and I didn't have false swipe, I also didn't have powerful enough Pokeballs to catch them at full health, and I ended up killing both with my weakest move possible. Those were two very sad days :(
You wanna know what cracked me up the other day, let me tell you:
I was playing Sun, and I found the recycling plant, the first time I had ever been, even though I had beat the game already. My Pokémon where of course, like, level 65 or higher, and so I OHKOed, and went first on each of the father and the son's Pokémon, and then the father talked all about how the son didn't give up and battled with his Pokémon as hard as he could, and even how he had put up a good fight, and I just sat there, laughing hysterically, images of Fisherman with 6 low leveled(so they wouldn't even have flail OR tackle) magikarp flooding through my head.
Ah, good times, good times.
I'm going to start posting on this page updates about my Platinum playthrough. Okay, I've seen a few users do this, so I'll do it too, though I'm not going to do a special challenge(i.e nuzzlock, wonderlock, sorry if I spelled those wrong.) Although I am trying to make every Pokemon on my team the same level before every gym and rival battle, so that's something.
Anyway, this is my Platinum playthrough so far:
Chapter 1: The Journey Begins(aka, up to the first gym.)
So, I fill out the starting form of my character, and rival(I always loved the part where Oak doesn't remember his own grandson's name, or was that a different proffesor?)anyway, me and my rival go into the grass and Rowan shows up to give me my starter, I choose Turtwig, because I think Torrterra's awesome and the best of the three, and I beat my rival with flying colors. I then go and meet Cyrus, so far a pretty shady character, and then I truly start by going in the grass on 201, my first encounter and it's a Krikitot, but unfortunately I have to kill it, as I don't have Pokeballs at this point(which really stank, because by the time I did it wasn't morning anymore.) Anyway, I progress through the Route to Sandgem Town, and meet the proffessor, get my pokedex and finally get some pokeballs at the mart. Wouldn't you know it, I ran into the most powerful, lord and savior of the pokemon world, right after that and caught Bidoof as my first, non-starter pokemon. I progressed farther and farther, catching a Starly, and a Shinx. I make it to Jubilife, meet my rival, and get the map and get the Pokewatch. I then decide to train my guys in the two neighboring routes that aren't the rival battle, catching a Budew and Pyduck(in the cave)just for fun, until they're all level 8(truth be told I didn't know there was a rival battle, so I had to turn the power off and on again.) Anyway, I destroy my riva ml,aking sure to spread the EXP as evenly, and progress through the route toward the first gym. Route 203 is a breeze, as I make my way to the city. I battled some of the trainers on 203 to get stronger, and arive in Oreburg City, I train my guys in the route above the city, catching a Rapidash and a Machop, and getting my guys to lvl 9, then I talk to my rival, and go to the mine, I find Roark, the gym leader, and go back to the gym(at this point, my guys are at level 10) I battle the trainers leading to the gym leader, and save before the battle, it's looking pretty good, a little tough, but not too bad, and then her lvl 14 Cranidos comes out and OHKO's all my guys before I can even get it to half health. Well, glad I saved, because now I don't have to pay, I soft reset and am now working on training my guys some more, possibly to level 12 or above, though it will be difficult, seeing as how the highest level guys available are only level 9. Ah well, back to training, also, I've watched a lot of videos for things you need to use False Swipe on and they all seem to use Krikitune, is it worth getting, because the time frame confuses me. Thoughts?
Current team of level 10 (not including non team members that just filled the other 2 spaces.): Turtwig, Shinx, Bidoof, and Starly.
