The Shiny Pokemon was introduced in the Second generation of the Pokemon games (Gold, Silver, Crystal) to emphasize the new color capabilities of the Gameboy Color. In the beginning most players thought their game glitched up somehow when they encountered a Pokemon of an incorrect color scheme, accompanied by flashes and sparkles. What these unsuspecting players didn't know, was that they were "lucky" enough to stumble upon a Shining Pokemon. Sadly, they usually ended up "fainting" them or re-booting their game, most of these later learned of their terrible mistake! Over the years players caught on and eventually started "hunting" these elusive Pokemon, sometimes as trophies, interesting battle Pokemon, or just for fun. The term "Shiny" Pokemon actually derives from the sparkly-shine they emit when encountered/sent into battle. Even though rare, there are millions of shiny Pokemon in existence today, will you add to the total?
