Ah, I remember the good old days when I found a Shiny Pidgey the first time I went into the grass in Pokemon Gold... and that one time where I found a shiny Rhyhorn while I was watching some cartoon.
Goddamit, you're lucky.
Gather around kids, and I'll tell you about Yukoviz, and The Shiny, Green Fearow.
Once upon a time, yukoviz was in the safari zone, playing Pokemon SoulSilver. He had come for no apparent reason, just to see what he could see. That's when he saw a shiny fearow, and just his luck, it was green, his favorite color.
The chances of such a rare occurrence were 1 in 8192, so he thought to himself, "Dayum," and proceeded to throw a Safari Ball.
Now, Safari Balls work the same way as 1st Tier Poke Balls, so he thought he had a good chance at catching it, since it was only level 16. Up until the 3rd shake, he thought he was correct about his assumption, but after the third shake, the majestic bird escaped it's confinement.
"Fuck", he muttered, ready to throw his next Safari Ball. But before he had a chance, the most dreadful words to ever reach Yukoviz's brain were spoken by the cruel game;
"The wild Fearow fled!"
To this day, Yukoviz has fears of entering the safari zone, as he may see another shiny fearow, or another one if it's "bastard friends" as he calls them.
