I don't even get the time to take a screencap. ;_; I just F5 like crazy and then stare in horror when I find a rare pokemon/old sprite just as my page is about to reload.

Ten MewTwos? You must've been kicking yourself by the tenth time. ): That's painful.

I guess after an experience like that you would learn, yeah. :c Maybe next time I go looking for Pokemon I'll do that.

Haha, yeah, that's part of my problem. |D;; Especially in areas where the Pokemon I'm looking for is uncommon... In Lavender Tower I got nothing but Ghastly so started to rapid-refresh and ended up missing two Cubones. D:

And yeah, several retro-sprite pokemon.

Back in Alpha, I lost two shiny Rotoms, because the sprites were broken and I didn't realize their shininess in time T-T

ETA: A shiny Shellos just ran away. Them pokemans hate me T____T

If it's any consolation, while testing if shinies were always escaping just now, I tried for a shiny starly and it escaped.

But then I confirmed that shinies are indeed catchable.

So it's rotten luck all around. :(

I just hope that I won't accidently refresh over the next shiny I see, haha!

Hopefully everyone else will have better luck, too.

It was also in alpha, but I missed a shiny ditto because dittos were uncatchable at the time.

While looking for the Eevee, I found a Retro Growlithe but was too excited to notice until it was too late... I dunno which it was but I'm gonna guess a Yellow sprite. :sob:
