PS: nope, im not trading it
Nice! I’ve found a shiny magnemite recently. It was the second shiny i have ever found in any Pokemon game and the other being a Barand in Pokemon Uranium. Unfortunately, I couldn’t catch the Barand but I did catch the magnemite.
Thats sweet, i also never had found a shiny mon in any game, and i´ve played a lot (since first gen) and so many times (mainly Soul Silver)
You said that you’ve played since gen 1 and have also played soul silver which means that you have found a shiny m8. Its called a gyarados.
I am sure he meant a shiny by chance, not one that is guaranteed to be shiny.
