Pokemon X and Y shiny Pokemon hunting guide: Fun story, I was playing Pokemon Y and I was just running around in a field of lovely yellow flowers when suddenly a horde of Poliwag appeared. At first I was gonna run but then I realized that one of them was shiny... So I defeated the rest of them and I was so hyped to catch the shiny... Unfortunately my Swanna loved me so much, they freaking MurDERED IT WITH ONE HIT. I WAS SO UPSET!
