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 making sure to spread the EXP 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 arrive in Oreburg City, I train my guys in the route above the city, catching a Ponyta 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 thegym 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. NEW UPDATE! I trained my pokemon while camping, and ended up finally catching a Krikitot, who I quickly evolved into Krikitune, and know I'm working on getting my guys level up, so far Bidoof got to 14, everyone else is 13, or 12.
I continued to train and I battled some of the trainers I missed until all my guys where level 14, except for Bidoof, I got him to 15, so he's now a BIBAREL, and has been demoted out of the position of god of all pokemon. I did this so I'd have his water typing advantage. I attempted Roark again and absolutely CRUSHED her, OHKOing her Geodude AND Onix, and 2KOing her Craniodos due to the potion she saves, and it generally being a bit higher than her other pokes.
END OF CHAPTER 1!
Chapter 2: The Road and Trials of Eterna City(up to the second gym)
Now that I had beaten Roark, I was able to use rock smash, but, since it's not used a ton, or at least not nearly as much as the others, I taught it to my Krikitune, who really needed a better attacking move. I then trained inside the farther reaches of Orburg Gate/Cave, until I realized this was not the way you were supposed to go, during which time my Starly evolved into STARAVIA! I then procceeded to make my way back to Jubilife, and once there, healed up, and got the old Rod. I then proceeded to catch a level 6 Magikarp(I need a Gyarados) and added it to my team, it's been pretty hard to level it though, seeing as how I don't have exp share yet. Anyway, I procceeded up the routes until I arrived at the wierd, small flower village(forgot the name) I then proceeded to the Windworks, where a Galactic Grunt tries to stop me from rescuing what seems to be a random girl's dad. He, ironically, told me exactly what to do before locking the door and going inside. I then trained a bit in the surrounding grass, resulting in my Shinx evolving as well into LUXIO. I then had to get off for the moment. I'll be back.
Current team of level 15, 16ish (not including Magikarp.): Turtwig, Luxio, Bibarel, Krikitune(keeping him on for the upcoming Grass Gym, not permanently though) and Staravia.
Amazing Pokemon Fact I just discovered: The names of your hometowns for the first 5 generations have something to due with nature:
Kanto: Pallet Town= pallet is a rough bed made purely out of straw
Johto: New Bark=Bark of a tree
Hoenn: Littleroot= a little root of a plant
Sinnoh: Twinleaf= leaf
Unova: (BW)Nuvema=portugeese for cloud (BW2)Aspertia=a type of cloud
I'm not sure about the others but I'll keep checking.
No luck, the others are either actual names of places:Vanville= city in north France, Potswick=City in the UK. However, I did find that Hau' Oli means happy in Hawaiian so that's something.
